A Breeder

I love my little puppy; she makes my house a home.
She is my very sweetest little friend; I never feel alone.
She makes me smile; She makes me laugh; She fills my heart with love . . .
Did some person breed her, or did she fall from above?
I've never been a breeder, never seen life through their eyes;
I hold my little puppy and just sit and criticize.
I've never known their anguish;

I've never felt their pain, the caring of their charges, through snow or wind or rain.
I've never waited the whole night through for babies to be born,
The stress and trepidation when they're still not there by morn.
The weight of responsibility for this body in my hands,
This darling little baby, who weighs but 60 grams.

Should you do that instead of this . . . or maybe that was wrong?
Alone you fight and hope, one day, he'll grow up proud and strong.
You pray he'll live to bring great joy to someone else's home.
You know it's all just up to you; you'll fight this fight alone.
Formula, bottles, heating pads, you've got to get this right,
two-hour feedings for this tiny guy, throughout the day and night.
Within your heart you dread that you will surely lose this fight,
To save this little baby, but God willing . . . you just MIGHT.

Day one; he's in there fighting; you say a silent prayer.
Day two & three, he's doing well, with lots of love and care.
Day four & five . . . he's still alive; your hopes soar to the heavens.
Day six he slips away again, dies in your hands, day seven.
You take this little angel, and bury him alone.
With aching heart and burning tears, and an exhausted groan,
You ask yourself, "Why do this? . . .
Why suffer through this pain?"

Yet watch the joy your puppies bring, and everything's explained.
So, when you think of breeders and label them with "Greed,"
Think of all that they endure to fill another's need.

For when you buy your puppy, with your precious dollars part,
You only pay with money . . . while they pay with all their heart ....

#1 Wonderful Care -
Necessary vet care during pregnancy & shortly
after birth and also throughout the 8 weeks we get
to enjoy the puppies.
(Also all of our pups are assisted by TWO
registered nurses during the delivery
process)
.
Just an FYI-
Regardless of where you purchase your puppy from. Please consider,
even if they are located on acres and acres of land, it means nothing if
they are confined to a "Kennel Life". Dogs were not meant to be termed
as "Breeders" they were meant to be respected as man's best friend and
NOT stockpiled in a cage to push out babies for profit.  Whelping areas
should be clean, tidy, warm, and comfortable. Also we feel it is important
for our females to be with us when they have their pups, have us help
provide as much support to her as we can, and keep the whole birthing
(whelping), rearing, and weaning as comfortable as possible. Puppies
should not be shy, timid, trembly, or afraid. Their ears, eyes,  & fur
should be clean and nails trimmed. They should not have pot-bellies as
that may be a clue of worm issues. Personalities do emerge by 8 weeks,
so those early weeks with the breeder do make a difference! Pups
should never go until 8 weeks of age or later! Please use caution, ask
questions, do your homework! Your pup with thank you for it... For the
next 12-15 years or so.
NEWS: We now have a doppler machine which can be used to monitor puppies during the pregnancy and during the labor
as well. This will eliminate the need for the uncomfortable X-Rays to determine puppy size and gives us a great advantage
on monitoring the status of the pups before they are even born. Litter size can also be closely estimated as well.
#2 The amount of time
we spend-
We are continuously caring for the
puppies under our very watchful eyes,
weekly bathing and grooming, daily oral
& paw stimulation, nail trimming,
socialization, 1:1 attention, and cuddling!
#3 Providing Training
Concepts-
They are already getting head starts on
training for starter commands and
housebreaking. We work on terms for
"potty, come, down/off, no/leave it, and
treat".
#4 Maintaining Safe and Comfortable Environment-
We provide proper temperature controls and very clean cozy environment located in a specially made
whelping/nursing box located
right in our home under our constant supervision...After all,they are babies!
#5 Nutritionally Complete Diets-
All of our dogs are fed Iams/Diamond blends. The pups have carefully
monitored nutritional regimes offered at specific
appropriate stages of
weaning.
#6 Health Screenings
We complete health screenings on our puppies at the appropriate stages to ensure
creating the healthiest puppies possible! Our adults are examined either screened
through our vet, or completion of Pennhip, or completion of OFA. Each of their pages
states their individual information.
#7 Our Philosophy
We do not own dogs to "run a business". They do not live in a kennel. They are members
of our family. We share our lives with them and they are like our furry little "children". We
give our dogs the utmost care socially, medically, nutritionally, and  we reap the many
rewards and joys of having the unconditional love only a beloved dog can give.  Our
entire family really enjoys the whole experience. Except for letting go.... That's the
hardest part!!!
