Lots of Puppies On the Way at Windy Knoll Farm!

Apparently, from the looks of our blog and facebook page, nothing has been happening here for some time! On the contrary, however, so much is occurring here at Windy Knoll Goldens  that there’s hardly time to keep up with it, let alone write about it! We’ve had all the normal dog events of each day, as well the addition of several new beautiful puppies, a couple of our younger goldens scoring in the above average percentile for their hip tests, and normal for their hearts scores, a couple of trips to other kennels — and one huge, new Windy Knoll project that you’ll be learning about in the coming months that’s consuming a large portion of time and effort!

But the news that we really wanted to let you know about today is that we should have lots of puppies on the way here at Windy Knoll Goldens! That’s right, the last several weeks have been a flurry of activity as five of our gorgeous females were bred!





Clara Barton of Windy Knoll Goldens was bred with Thunder Ridge Goldens Sampson, for a litter due November 12, 2018! Clara is a pretty, dark red golden, and handsome Sampson (this picture doesn’t do him justice!) is an even darker Irish setter red hue, and we look forward to a litter of gorgeous, dark red AKC goldens from them!




Sweet Spice of Windy Knoll Goldens and our sire, Ulysses S. Grant of Windy Knoll Goldens, will have their first litter of AKC Golden Retrievers due on November 9th, 2018. Both possess fine temperaments, sleek, beautiful confirmation, and superb hips. Their puppies will be a welcome arrival here at Windy Knoll Farm.




Windy Knoll Lady Margaret, affectionately known as Meg, will have our first litter of half English Cream Goldens. She was bred with AKC English Cream male from Supergoldens who is not only a regal, gorgeous golden but also quite a sweet fellow. Their puppies, who are due on November 13th, 2018, will be blond to cream, with a strong genetic foundation with the combination of English Cream and American Golden genetics.





Windy Knoll Polly and Ulysses S. Grant are expecting their litter of AKC Goldens on November 20th, 2018. Polly and Grant’s previous litters have been beautiful, dark goldens puppies with sweet, lovable, playful personalities like their parents – just what we anticipate of these new little goldens!




Beautiful, sweet Windy Knoll Golden Sunshine is also expecting a litter by Grant on November 19th, 2018. Sunny and Grant have also had a litter together in the past and their puppies have been adorable and sweet little pups with lovely personalities. We are thrilled to have another litter coming up from them!

We can’t wait for lots of adorable little goldens to snuggle, care for, and watch grow into beautiful puppies!

See them there – just waiting for you to come take them home! We’ll miss all those cute faces, but we are delighted that to know the joy that they will bring to their new families!

Elizabeth Loves Puppies!

All of our children enjoy the adorable little puppies that abound here right now at Windy Knoll Farm. But some of them really LOVE the puppies – and Elizabeth is one of them! Having been around our Golden Retrievers her entire life, she is now old enough to engage with the pups in a variety of ways, and this afternoon found her intermittently snuggling and then playing follow the leader with this cute, almost white little Golden boy from Jenny’s litter.

Elizabeth loves puppies!

Pictures of Polly’s Puppies!

Finally, here are some pictures of Polly’s puppies! Polly has the chubbiest, darkest red, most laid back group of puppies you can imagine! We love playing with these little goldens! We’re also excited to be keeping one of her little girls ourselves, and are looking forward to meeting the new owners of these little pups when they start coming to choose their own little cuties in just days!

Greg enjoys capturing videos of the pups. Now for the time to upload them….

Have A Golden Night!

We’re Enjoying So Many Cute Golden Puppies!

With so many cute Golden puppies growing so quickly here at Windy Knoll Farm, and six growing children who spend hours playing and helping care for all those cute pups, life is full to bursting everyday! It’s sometimes hard to find time to capture the happenings on camera (and then get them on the computer and posted here to our blog!), but I managed to grab the camera today on the way out the door to play with the children and pups! As the puppies approach five weeks of age, they are fuller of life then ever, delighted to tumble, chase, and snuggle in the balmy, sunny weather we’ve been enjoying. This afternoon’s playtime centered around Sunny’s litter of adorable little goldens who have the cutest faces and are such a calm, happy bunch! My girls were eager to showcase their favorite puppies to me, as we snuggled the soft little golden bundles, and encouraged their antics of following after us!

David was pretty fascinated with such soft, snugly toys!


What can be better than babies and Golden pups?!

David can appreciate the fact that being a baby requires lots of sleep!

A lap-ful of sleeping little pups…

…An armload of puppy chub! Mary does a fantastic job with our puppies, and devotes much of her free time to enjoying them!


Anna loves that the puppies are just the right size at this stage to play with, while still not large enough to be overwhelming to a person of her size!

Esther loves holding the puppies just like a baby! The pups apparently think it’s a good idea, too!

Elizabeth decided that she would treat this little girl to a ride in her wheel-barrel after carefully preparing a bed of soft grass for comfort.

The puppy approved!

Good night and have a great weekend!
