Truffle update on her first birthday

Update sent via Email 3/29/19 
 
Hi Jeff & Laura –
 
I thought today would be a good time to give you an update on Truffle, as it’s her first birthday! I cannot thank you enough for her, as she’s brought oh so much love and joy to my world. She’s the sweetest and most loving pup anyone could meet. She LOVES kids and playing with other dogs (she always seems to be everyone’s favorite at the dog park and at doggie daycare), loves liver treats, the beach, and snow (she REALLY loves snow!), and gnawing on antlers and elk & deer “sticks” (legs), and being her sweet adorable playful self while loving on me and Todd. She’s been the picture of health barring only a couple of minor incidents requiring a visit to the vet; those were only the result of her just being a dog doing dog things. Otherwise, absolutely zero issues and just a LOT of love. Her hearing and sense of smell is uncanny, which I already knew about Labradors but it’s so interesting to watch her and observe those traits firsthand. Oh and she LOVES birds – can watch them and be mesmerized by them for hours on end.
 
She gets spayed next week and we’ll probably be planning another trip to the ocean soon because wow does this girl love to RUN on the beach! We’ve had so much fun in this first year and I’m excited to share so many more adventures with her in the years to come.
 
Thank you once again!
 
Beth (& Truffle)

Brandy Update (March 17, 2019)

Update sent via Email (Shasta/Fudge CF)
 
Good morning Jeff and Laura.  It’s been a while since I wrote an update on Brandy (Shasta/Fudge Mountain litter 3/18/17).  She turns 2 tomorrow, and we have some special birthday treats and toys to give her.  Although I must say, she already found the ‘Dino’ bone – she has an incredible sense of smell!  We noticed a couple of months ago that she is becoming more affectionate, which I have been told they do as they get older.  What had been a mild winter on the west side took a turn in February when the snow arrived.  Brandy loves the snow, and we managed to continue our daily walks. 
 
Brandy still loves to be off leash around the property (20 acres).  She is good at staying close to me, often stopping to smell and then running to catch up – normally with a new stick in her mouth.  I’ve attached a couple of photos taken yesterday.  She was so proud of herself carrying around the piece of firewood – snorting like a pig as she ran by.  She loves the wildlife.  When a deer walks through…….O-Boy, it’s game on.  We planted apple trees yesterday.  We will see how that goes as the trees start producing apples in a few years.
 
Brandy is a big girl.  She weighed 94 pounds at the vets last month.  She goes to the vets every month to get her nails done.  Jeff, you predicted she would weigh 100 pounds when I picked her up at 7 weeks old – a good estimate.  She is a strong dog.  Hopefully she will not get any bigger.
 
It’s supposed to be a little of above 60 degrees today.  Brandy doesn’t know it yet, but today is bath day for her.  She loves to get in the water.
 
Have a super day guys.  I appreciate receiving all of your updates.  It looks like things have been busy for you.  Hopefully we can make it over to say hi soon.

Jackson II

Update sent via Email 3/04/19 
 
Hi Jeff and Laura,
 
Jackson is doing very well, he has acclimated to us and our home very nicely. There are some puppy issues with our 18 ½ year old Calico, he just can’t seem to leave her alone. We are trying to let them work it out but sometimes we have to intervene. He is 60% potty trained and seems to be a very smart little puppy. He is extremely energetic and playful but when he tires he sure does crash out. His sleeping positions are hilarious. We are enjoying him immensely.
 
He got a good check up at his first vet appointment, I have attached a copy of the record. We followed up the exam by bringing in a stool sample.  
 
Hope this e-mail finds you well. I still get a kick out of us driving by and seeing you waving us down! We must have driven by 2 – 3 times before we saw you. Thanks again, we love our pup.

Rio’s First Vet Visit

Update sent via Email 2/22/19 
 
Hi Laura & Jeff,
As per your request we are attaching a copy of Rio’s first Preventive Care Examination. It appears he is a healthy vibrant young puppy which we love very much already.
 
I will send you pictures later in the spring. We are so happy with him already and maybe later on we might get another puppy from you.
 
Sincerely,
Dan and Linda Carlson

Spring 2019 Litter Update

This is an update on the Spring 2019 Litters.

The first litter to arrive was of our girl Desert Wind’s Shasta Cream Soda and our boy Desert Wind Buckaroo Buckshot on Sunday, February 24th!  Momma and babies are doing great.  She had four yellow pups.  All are spoken for.

Then our girl Desert Wind Brushfire Maisy Doo and our boy Desert Wind Boone’s Boy Jetson delivered their CKC Lab Litter on Monday, March 4th!  Momma and babies are doing great.  She had 2 pups … one yellow and one black. Unfortunately she had no female pups.

Next litter we anticipated was to be the Cinderella of the Desert Wind/Desert Wind Boone’s Boy Jetson due this last week.  She had a false pregnancy so there are no pups there.

We are still excited about the impending arrival of the AKC Lab Litter of Desert Winds Autumn Rain and Desert Wind Fudge Mountain due in the next few days.  She is HUGE!
