Patsy’s litter growing fast!
…waking up from their naps…
Windy Knoll Goldens Martha Washington “Patsy” delivered a healthy litter of 11 dark golden retriever puppies on the 24th of September! Mother is doing fine and happily caring for her adorable puppies. The puppies weights and lengths and names are … wait, this sounds like a baby announcement!
For a first time mother, Patsy did great; birthing puppy after puppy that afternoon from 2:30 to 5:30. This is probably a record fast delivery for our dogs over the past few years. It also is nice to have a daytime delivery, otherwise, we (read I) have to stay up all night with her. She seemed to know what she was doing and settled down very quickly to a proper nursing and sleeping schedule. All the puppies are spoken for at this time, so any new inquiries for this litter will have to be turned away or… be directed to a couple other litters that are due starting in 2 months!
I grabbed a few quick pictures of the puppies and Patsy nursing them. Also check out our Youtube video by clicking here.
It’s been a pleasure these past weeks seeing all of our golden puppies connecting with their new families as they have headed off to their new homes! One of our greatest delights in raising Goldens is our joy in seeing each puppy united with their wonderful new owners, the start of loving canine/human relationship. ‘
We have just one little pup who has yet to go home with her new owners – and one little Golden puppy that needs your help! We’ve chosen this beautiful little golden girl to keep in our own Golden family, but we’re having one problem with her. We can’t settle on a suitable name for her.
So, help us out and let us know your suggestions! This little girl is one of Sunny and Charlie’s offspring – and has a wonderful disposition just like her parents.
Well folks, it’s been hopping around here with puppy care, puppy vet exams, and new puppy owners coming and picking up their new puppies from our oldest litters! So, we’ve not had too many moments to post pictures to our blog, but today, here’s a Sunny Hello from one of Sunny and Charlie’s beautiful, friendly little goldens! They’re growing great and have wonderful personalities, and are scheduled for their vet exams this coming week. Maple and Major’s pretty English Cream/American Golden puppies are also growing rapidly, while Spice and Clara’s adorable little canines are all in the process of heading off to their new homes!

Graceful and pretty, Maple looks on while one of her little canines takes a nap in the wagon while Elizabeth gives her a ride.
And while puppies have taken center stage for a while here with all their adorableness, we can’t forget the rest of our canine family:
The children and I say hello to some of our beautiful young, AKC Golden girls, like Daisy, pictured above!
Not to be left out of the excitement, Pickle, a vivacious, alert, and lovely young lady Golden, quickly joined Daisy.
Susie is a sweet, dark red Golden who, in spite of a small compact, frame, has a great capacity for love, loyalty, and fun!
Pearl and Florence, our first two AKC English Cream girls, are maturing into stunning young Goldens with great proportions and gorgeous coats of white!
At nearly four weeks old, Sunny and Charlie’s litter of pups have grown into adorable little canines who already seem to be taking after their parents’ lovely, sweet, and mild temperaments! These four little boys and four little girls range in shades of lovely light gold to a slightly darker honey color, with faces possessing very gentle, sweet expressions. All these cuties greatly relished their playtime with us this afternoon at Windy Knoll Goldens – enjoying lawn mower trailer rides with the children (yes, our puppies gently get used to many different situations and sounds at a young age), lots of snuggles, belly rubs, kisses, and romps with us in the cooling afternoon atmosphere of our early Vermont summer. Enjoy an slew of puppy cuteness in the photos below!
Four cute males, and four adorable females make for a fine first litter for Maple. They are well established in nursing, sleeping, and snuggling – while Maple, who is a first time mother, had a great delivery and has surprised us with her level of devotion and care for her pups!
It’s fun to have a range of puppy ages all represented here right now, showing just how much growth and development occurs in a puppies first few weeks of life! From Maple’s small, cute newborns, to Sunny’s almost two week old adorable pups who are toddling around and even already trying to tackle eating real food, to Spice and Clara’s almost five week old bundles of cuteness and energy and developing personalities who now much prefer to play outside that have to be in their indoor pens!
Stay tuned for more pictures of Sunny and Charlie’s pups coming up next!
Spice’s litter of thirteen little Goldens are now the proud owners of soft, bright colored velcro ID collars, which only seem to heighten the cuteness of their sweet faces! All thirteen pups are growing well and love getting outdoors to play with the children and each other! They are now all quite relaxed throughout all the steps of the bio sensor therapy with do with them each day – even the part involving being help upside down!
We’re happy to announce the arrival of Sunny and Charlie’s litter of beautiful, healthy little Golden pups, who have added a whole lot more golden cuteness to our puppy families here! Due to busyness right after Sunny’s puppies were born, and then technical computer difficulties which are finally under resolution now, it’s taken us a while to be able to make the news public, but it’s here now:
Sunny is a fantastic mother, very faithfully and gently caring for her little canines as they keep themselves quite occupied with eating, sleeping, and snuggling! Their adorable little light golden faces already possess such cute expressions – and with Sunny for their mother and Charlie as their father, those adorable little golden faces will mature into such handsome, sweet, and noble adults! Their little pale blue eyes are just starting to open, and their mobility is increasing as they begin to toddle about their little whelping pen.
These healthy little youngsters prefer nestling up to their mother for warm nourishment by way of nursing, curling together in a warm heap of puppy sleepiness, or snuggling in our arms. Along with Spice and Clara’s older pups, each of these little goldens has been started with bio sensor therapy each day for their improved neurological development.
ALL OF THESE PUPPIES ARE ALREADY UNDER RESERVATION.
