For folks that are looking to add one of our
very special puppies to their families - I thought I'd give
a few particulars. When we have a litter:
They have been micro-chipped. I will register them with
PeTrac (avid micro-chip) with your information before they go home.
They come with their first collar, leash, baby blanket,
a toy that they are familiar with, and a medical record form.
They have had age appropriate vaccinations and appropriate wormings.
A signed spay/neuter contract for both of us, (view on the website)
and of course - breeder support for life.
If you intend to fly the puppy to you, an additional $75 for the
airline vet. certificate and $80 for the cost of the airline kennel
will be added. I do not currently charge for the trip to the airport
(about an hour one way) but that can change - please check.
I usually ship Alaska Animal Express if they go to an airport near you,
and I need to prepay the fare, so you will need to get me
the money first - (duh). All paperwork is sent separately.
If you are interested, or have any additional questions
let me know -either fill out the form, or e-mail me
(or both to be safe)
You can also call and leave a message on our
"message only" landline 360-435-7180. Name, phone number,
a short message, and a good time for me to call you back from
Cdrhm's Copper Sunrise - "Walter" ---is now in Studio City, CA - on his way to
be rich and famous (well - they love him anyway) but who wouldn't love that face!
I have a current picture of his full sis - Sally -she's in California too.
Murphy on the left - Sally on the right. Here's an idea of how pretty they are when they grow up ;)
Boy, the growing pains!!!! Well, two of my up and
coming hopefuls have not made it into my
breeding program. Summer, the diva she is, decided
that she really wanted to be an only child. She is now in an
amazing home in Oregon, where she has total run
of the couch, house, yard, farm, etc. - but shares nicely
with her cats.
And for reasons beyond his control, Moses is
Ali ("CDRHMS THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS")
is growing up beautifully, has an awesome temperament,
and is my daughter Teresa's delight. She calls her ,
her "springer muppet" for her outgoing, goofy personality
(and sometimes fluffy hat!). She spends weeks away with
"grandma" - me, and handles each transition with ease.
Her OFA hip and elbow screens came back good, and
normal scores. We hopefully will have a
litter as soon as we can make that happen!
Toby will be very happy!!
And as always, if I don't have availability or the
timing is not quite right for you and your situation,
I can hopefully help you find a quality breeder.
All of our dogs continue to pass the eye evaluation (yearly) from the opthamologist with flying colors. We have had the PFK testing and all are negative.
If you're thinking that you'd like to add one of our future babies to your family, send me a note with the information you think would be helpful for me, or I can send a puppy application form for you to fill out.
I can't stress enough the appreciation I have for people who plan ahead, and are willing to wait for the right pup.
Please note also; although I am a small operation and only have puppies occasionally, I do have several ess breeder friends on the west coast (well ok - across america). There is a box on the "contact us" form that gives me permission to forward your information to one of them, if I have no puppies available. This of course is totally at your discretion, but I thought it might be helpful in your search for your perfect pup.
I also have often been asked by owners and other breeders to assist them in placing young adults, and older springers. Some are from "rescue" situations, others are breeding or show hopefuls, that didn't make the grade. Most all of them make wonderful pets. I've added ANOTHER box to the "contact us" form, that asks if you'd be interested in information on a rescue or older Springer. Just let me know.
