December 2008:  Daynee has now had her litter, and because of our own health and the need to reduce the number of our standards, we have made the very difficult decision to spay her and place her with a new family.  Daynee is marvelous to work with, would make an excellent obedience prospect and has also shown good herding instincts.  She is at times defensive with other dogs so we feel would be best placed in a home with another large breed dog, or as an only dog.  She loves to travel and would be a great prospect for a retired couple.  She is crate and kennel trained and is up to date on all vaccinations and wormings.  She is absolutely delightful to work with and has been an outstanding mother to her litter.  She is very people social and is very quick to obey commands, and learns new routines very quickly.  She is available at 5 years of age:  $950.00 before spaying (available December 17th, 2008), $1150.00 after spaying (available approximately January 17th, 2009).  Please contact us if you are interested in Daynee.  You can see all the info on her current litter on the "Standard Litter Page".

December 2007:  Tentative plans are to breed Daynee for a black and brown litter in Spring 2008 if we have enough reservations.  She will be bred to either one of Raven's sons out of Gypsy or Velvet, or to a brown male that we have used previously if he is available.  Please watch the "Litter" page for updates, and please if you are wanting a black or brown pup send in your reservation and deposit.  We have already delayed a year in breeding Daynee due to changes in economy - mainly gas prices that are taking so many families extra $'s.

July 2006:  "Daynee" returned to the show ring at the Spring International Show in Albany, OR and earned her adult International Champion title.    It is our intention to breed "Daynee" for her first litter in the Fall of 2006, and to keep the pick of the litter female puppy to continue the line, as she is full littermate to "Kit" and "Kayla".  As a result "Daynee" will be available approximately December 2006 when her litter has been weaned.

Breeding History:

DY1 Litter.  DOB:  10/26/08  Due to the economic picture in 2007-2008 we held off breeding Daynee until late in 2008 for her first litter.  By that time she was almost 5 years of age so we decided to have just one litter with her and then spay her so that she could have a wonderful family of her own to work and play with.  Click on the button below for all the litter info and pictures of the DY1 litter.  Full littermates to Daynee are Kit and Kayla who are still in our breeding program at this time.
