Another Litter Announcement from Windy Knoll Goldens

Yes, it’s been hopping here these last few weeks, with so many puppies arriving, and yet another litter announcement to make! Today’s news is concerning our litter from Lady Margarite (Meg) of Windy Knoll Goldens. Meg and Dozer’s adorable little AKC English Cream/American Golden puppies were born on November 10, 2019. Not only were there seven females, there were also six males presented to us for whopping total of thirteen little goldens!

What a pile of puppies!

Newborn puppies tiny, perfect ears, noses, paws, and tails always fascinate me – so cute, and a tribute to the creativeness of the God who created them!

 

Unfortunately, with such a large litter, and a difficult labor, Meg ended up with an emergency c-section for the delivery of her pups. Because of this, and Meg’s need to rest and recover, we’ve ended up taking on her responsibilities as mother to this litter – which includes bottle-feeding and cleaning each pup every two hours! This is a first time experience for us, and has certainly kept us more than busy, but we’re delighted to report that all thirteen puppies are eating and growing well! There is no doubt that with all this hands on attention every few hours, these will be the most socialized puppies yet here at Windy Knoll Goldens!

If you are on the wait list for this litter, you can expect to be hearing from us via email shortly with further details concerning this litter. We appreciate your patience as we work on reaching out to you in the midst of all that’s going on here!

Sweet Spice’s Beautiful Litter of AKC Golden Pups Are Here!

Spice’s beautiful litter of AKC Golden pups arrived on November 9th, 2019! As a first time mother, Spice sailed through labor and delivery with competence and ease. She is a great mother, taking excellent care of her robust, beautiful pups – five females and three males for total of eight lovely little AKC Goldens!

We’re happy to report that all the pups are very busy nursing and sleeping and being snuggled throughout the day – doing just want little pups are suppose to do! Even in the few days since they’ve been arrived, they’ve grown tremendously, so all that nursing and sleeping is definitely paying off!

Three sleepy boys!

A Cute Golden Puppy Picture!

Clara’s puppies are nine days old now, and have grown tremendously! They are the chubbiest, cutest litter of little red Goldens pups you can imagine! Here, one of Clara’s little boys enjoys a nap along with Jonathan and the stuffed horse. Each of the children have picked out their favorite pup, and of course, for Jonathan, that means choosing one of the three adorable little fellows!

Clara’s Newborn Puppies!

Yes, our beautiful Clara delivered her first litter of adorable little AKC Golden puppies! Monday night, November 5, 2018, found us observing the miracle of birth as each tiny newborn arrived! As a first time mom, Clara went through labor and delivery beautifully and is taking excellent care of her newborn puppies.

Her healthy, vigorous litter of nine little Golden pups, six females and three males, are thriving with plenty of napping and nursing snuggled up with their mom.  These little newborn puppies have also thrilled our children yet again, and offered them another opportunity to wonder at and snuggle the tiny, perfect pups! Clara is a very calm mother, and welcomes our “assistance” with her litter.

Five Positive Pregnancy Ultrasounds!

Did you hear the news?!

Several days ago, Spice, Meg, Clara, Sunny, and Polly made a trip to the vet. While their rounding tummies gave evidence of growing pups, we wanted to confirm each pregnancy via ultrasound. And for each mother, the ultrasound technician found a lovely litter of pups, even distinguishing their little beating hearts! Hurrah for five positive pregnancy confirmations!

It will be no time at all until the pups will start arriving, and we are busy preparing!

Meet Maple, A Beautiful Young Golden!

Our beautiful young golden, Sweet Maple of Windy Knoll Goldens,  is maturing into a lovely darker hued golden with a compact, well portioned build and a mid length, ruffled coat! While a little over a year old now, Maple is still full of the energy and fun playfulness of puppyhood, and loves autumn walks!

 

 

 

 

Goldens, including our beautiful young Golden, Maple, love children as much as they love them!

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!
