Winnie's Little ones are 10 days old!

Our Princesses!

Our Little Plum.

This is Peaches!

Princess Strawberry.

And our little Princes!
Boys are a little bit harder to name after fruits.

This is Dragon, named after Dragon Fruit.

This is Raz, named after Black Raspberries.

And we must not forget Boo, named after Blueberries!

Peaches inspired this litters nick names. Peaches reminded me of my grandmother and her love of berries. My grandmother will have to forgive me for not naming a puppy watermelon, her favorite fruit, but I just couldn't do it.
Please check out the Puppies Photo Album!
This week the puppies will open their eyes and they will start hearing things too. I think Raz and Peaches will be the first to open their eyes, we shall see.

It looks like we will still have a few puppies looking for homes, I will update again soon.
Until then,
All of our puppies are always welcome to come back to us. It doesn't matter how old they are, Honey Ridge puppies are always members of our family.
If an emergency happens and the puppy's forever families can not keep their puppy we would rather our puppies come home then go to a shelter, or worse.
When a puppy does return home, we keep them here for at least a month. This lets us evaluate the puppies needs and personality. We also have the puppy checked over by our vet, to make sure he or she is healthy.
I always think of our puppies as puppies, even when they are older. I think it might be a mom thing, and unlike my young adult children, the puppies never tell me they are all grown up.
You are probably wondering why I am going on about this.
Please let me reintroduce King Louie.

Louie was born to Fawkes and Saul on March 22, 2011.
Louie's Mom was very sad that she had to give him up when she had to move. So Louie is looking for a new home. He is a very curious guy and wants to check out everything. He loves to play with everybody, even cats! This is Goofy trying to get Louie's attention.
Please check out Louie's Photo Album.
If you are interested in adopting King Louie please send me an email at
and we can talk about Louie's wants and needs.

Until next time.

The Puppies Have Arrived

I am sorry I have been so busy at work I have not posted any updates in what seems like forever.
I now have lots of happy reasons to post!!!

Winnie had her puppies Febuary 15th!

Here is Winnie after her mini spa day today.

Winnie is a great mom!

These are our 3 princes!

Here are our 3 princesses!

I took LOTS of pictures today and on their birthday. Winnie asked me to delete some of the pictures because she was not at her best, but I thought it was a good idea to share just what mom looks like after delivering her puppies.
I am currently contacting families on our waiting list to see if they are still interested in bringing one of our little ones home. I will update next week as to how many puppies we still have available.
In the mean time I am looking for a theme to name the puppies after. If you have any suggestions please send me a note.

I should also let every one know that Rose and Esme have retired from breeding. We decided to have Rose spayed after she had 2 c-sections. We also decided to have Esme spayed because she had such a difficult birth and we didn't want to risk any complications with her health.

I also wanted to give everyone a little history about Winnie.
Winnie is Fawkes litter mate. Winnie used to live in Minnesota with my cousin. But this summer she had a little mishap with a lab named Molly, that ended up with an emergency trip to the vet. So Winnie decided that she would stay in Iowa with her favorite sister Fawkes.
We are all very happy that she has decided to stay and be a part of our family.

I will be posting an update about King Louie later this week, I just want to get a few good pictures of him first.
Tata for now,
