New Arrivals

Cricket whelped 10 puppies between 7:30 and 11:45 pm on August 29. You can imagine our surprise at the arrival of 10 because the vet who did her ultrasound thought there were 6-7 puppies. The whelping was smooth and uneventful, and Cricket is being a wonderful and attentive mom to the puppies. They all gained an impressive amount of weight during their first night, and are off to a great start.

It was surprising to have such an overwhelming number of male puppies born in one litter. I laughed though, because Cricket was the only female puppy in her litter, along with 7 brothers.


It is my pleasure to introduce the Alberta Hamlet litter!

As I was mulling over litter themes, I was hoping to find something a pile of options (since the litter was so big), as well as a theme that would have a number of masculine names, since there were so many males in this litter. Alberta has a long list of Hamlets, with many fantastic and unique options to chose from. Each puppy buyer selected the registered name for their puppy from within the theme.

The puppies have all gone to their homes now, and I'm going to enjoy some time training my dogs and taking them to dog shows to compete. I hope to see a couple of the Alberta puppies at some of the upcoming dog shows.

Cricket did a fantastic job raising her crew, and I'm looking forward to nailing down plans for my 2022 litter.
