At 1:20PM, on St. Paddy’s Day, Caya had her 7th black pup, which happened to be a female. That was her last pup. The final tally on the Chip/Caya litter is 5 black males and 2 black females.
We have an appointment with the vet for Thursday, at 3:00PM, to have the dewclaws removed from the pups.
The best news of all is that they look healthy and have been nursing. One can tell that easily especially when it is so quiet in the whelping box. Not much fussing at all with this litter. That is a great sign. If you are a bird hunter, these pups should be some very good retrievers. Both parents, Chip and Caya, have been raised as family dogs and are blessed with some wonderful personalities.
Here are a few photos, with the 1st one taken on March 1st and the last 3 taken on 3-17-2.

Buddy is ten weeks old and has had his 1st and 2nd series of shots when we took him to see the vet last week. He is doing well and is up to 11+ pounds now. From what I can see, he will be a wonderful family pet. Buddy wants to please and loves to snuggle.
Buddy and Buck tuggin’ with a Duck. Buck has found his new home, Buddy is still available – details below.

These two boys are developing very well! They are 9 weeks old. Their dewclaws have been removed and they have had their first shots and a thorough wellness exam at the vets.
If you have inclinations of having a retriever, please call me and I can send you pictures of their parents and grand parents.

All of Jalapeno’s blacks now have their eyes open. They are now walking all over inside the whelping. All kinds of new adventures taking place now.
Here is our 6 1/2 month old chocolate male, Enchanted Desert Rico, who will be a sire some day.
On November 16th, Enchanted Desert Belize, had her first litter of 6 yellow pups. There were 2 males and 4 females.
Their eyes are now open and they are walking around the whelping box like they own it. Belize, for a first time mom, is doing a wonderful job in keeping her pups and the whelping box pad very clean. All the pups have fat tummies and look to be in excellent health.
Check out our Family Album, all puppies from past litters.
Rico comes from Sweetgrass Labradors in Nashua, Montana. Cindy and Doug Bowden have operated it for years and what a wonderful family of Labradors they have.
Our pup is not only good looking but blessed with intelligence. After just one week he has recognized his name when we call him. We look forward to the challenge of training him and watching this pup mature into that adult dog some day. It will be fun to see what he looks like a year from now.
