Lacey’s Cocker Spaniels
Born July 7, 2020
Lacey – American Cocker Spaniel
Cruize – American Ccker Spaniel
We love Lacey. Not only is she a wonderful companion; she is also a great mother. Lacey has delivered some of our most beautiful puppies, and we knew we wanted to keep her genetics in our program. We were fortunate to find Cruize, a handsome male, just in time for breeding. Lacey delivered five darling puppies, with adorable long and silky-soft ears. These puppies have been such a delight for us to raise. We will be keeping two of them in our program so that they can carry on the Lacey tradition.
Anticipated adult weight: 20-25 pounds
Colors: Red and white parti, blue merle parti, chocolate merle parti
Coat: Smooth silky coats, some shedding anticipated
Lady and the Tramp Litter
We always said that if we ever had a purebred Cocker Spaniel litter, we would name the puppies after Lady and the Tramp. This classic movie is simply beautiful. Lady, a sweet and naive puppy lives with her human parents in comfortable circumstances. When they have a baby, their attention turns away from her. She goes exploring and encounters Tramp, a boy from the other side of the tracks, in this case the alley. He teaches her about life in the street and about how to avoid the dreaded dog catcher. The two of them have many adventures together. Who can forget their romantic spaghetti dinner in the alley behind Tony’s restaurant? After some scary moments, Tramp moves in with Lady and her family, and they go on to have puppies of their own, including the little rascal Scamp.

Luna – American Cocker Spaniel
Zeus – Phantom Poodle
Luna gave birth to her first litter of Cockapoo puppies a few days before her projected due date. Young and strong, she persisted through 14 hours of labor and a puppy stuck in the birth canal in breech position. At the end of the night, Luna had delivered eight beautiful puppies. The change in her was palpable. She went from being a carefree youngster to being a very responsible mother: caring for her newborns by gently nudging them and encouraging them to nurse.
When Luna takes a break from mothering, she joins us on the couch. She is incredibly sweet and so observant and alert. She loves to have one of us stroke her silky-soft ears while she looks at us with her big brown eyes.
Zeus, the father of Luna’s puppies, is very gentle too. When he runs, he flashes before our eyes; he is that fast. Zeus has incredible athletic ability.
Anticipated adult weight: 20-25 pounds
Colors: Apricot, red, phantom, parti (white with black markings), and black with white markings
Coat: Soft, silky coats with limited shedding (well suited for people with light allergies)
Luna’s due date was the Fourth of July. We had anticipated being busy in the whelping room. Instead we got to celebrate the day with the newborn puppies.
As we looked at the array of colors and compared it to the night sky, it was obvious that there could only be one theme: fireworks. Fireworks are mesmerizing, as is a litter of newborn puppies. They seem almost magical as they fill the sky with stars, comets, candles, flowers, and waterfalls of light. Like the impending birth of a puppy, fireworks leave us in suspense. We know they are coming, yet we are on the edge of our seats before each burst of light. The same was true with Luna’s litter. Each puppy burst out of the amniotic sac, with some help from mom, and emerged, dripping wet, in a beautiful color to become part of Luna’s Fireworks.

Lucy’s F1b Mini Bernedoodles
Born on May 4, 2020
Lucy – F1 Bernedoodle
Apollo – Mini Poodle
Lucy has great maternal instincts. On May 4, she gave us plenty of signals that birth was impending. She started looking for dark, quiet places: next to our bed and under a low table. She finally found her quiet spot in the whelping box, just as it was starting to get dark. She created a comfortable nest, even shredding a favorite fleece blanket. Then she proceeded to give birth, without a whimper. Lucy delivered nine absolutely stunning puppies. Her litter included partis and tri-colored phantoms in black, rust, and white.
Both Lucy and Apollo, the father of the litter, have beautiful coats and even temperaments. They are very sweet and loving. They also happen to be really good friends. They can often be found sleeping next to each other or exploring the yard together.
All the puppies from this list were claimed before Lucy even delivered. Fortunately, Lucy’s next list is open, and we have started the process of taking deposits. If interested, please go to our Upcoming Litters page.
Weight: 20-35 pounds
Color: Parti and tri-colored phantoms in black, white, and rust
Coat: Fluffy coats with unique markings (hypoallergenic and very well suited for people with allergies)
The Pantomime Litter
Lucy’s and Apollo’s puppies were named after famous pantomine characters and artists. What is pantomime? Pantomime is a very old form of entertainment, in which the characters are silent and use elaborate gestures to express everything from actions to emotions. It could be anything from knocking on air to pretend knocking on a door to holding both hands to the heart to indicate love.
We have a family tradition of watching pantomime, especially when we visit Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen where the longest-running pantomime theater in the world offers free performances on a spectacular peacock stage. Pantomime artists can be found in silent movies too. You may recognize some of the names of the puppies.

London’s Mini Poodles
Born March 5, 2020
London – AKC Mini Poodle
Zeus – AKC Moyen Poodle
London found a quiet spot in the house on Wednesday, March 5, and started delivering her puppies. It was a few days before her due date. When we heard the first squeak, we sprang into action and stayed by her side the rest of the day. What a beautiful litter. London gave us eight delightful mini Poodles. At birth, they were tiny next to the Bernedoodles, but so full of life and spunk. We received four females and four males.
We chose famous jazz artists as the litter theme since we love jazz. The names are great too. Who can resist a Louis Armstrong or an Ella Fitzgerald or a Duke Ellington?
All the jazz artists have gone to their new homes. Guess where Louis Armstrong went? New Orleans!
Height: 14-16 inches
Weight: 12-18 pounds
Colors: This litter included six black puppies, one black with white markings, and one apricot puppy
