We have early 2022 pups in the works — a couple of options, one being a Litter with Longhairs. No, I cannot tell you more–yet.
For now, you can check out the pups born to Birdie ( https://www.owyheestar.com/dayone.html ). Don’t you love the stripped photos? And Juniper is expecting.
We don’t market our pups on Facebook–per se. We have a couple of Blue Females not yet promised. If you are seriously interested, you would need to email me directly–and be willing to complete the application, too. I fear this will be the future–whereas, in the past, our pups were all promised before we mated. The Post Covid Craziness is over — people have loaded up on pups.
Things Post Pandemic are different–people react differently, too. We recently went through every name of the Waitlist, and a couple of folks had decided to go elsewhere and didn’t inform us yet. Others didn’t reply (yet) to the email we sent. We moved on because we have to do things that way. Others want what we didn’t get (different sex, different coat color, etc.–or the timing is off).
Mostly, we have people waiting for what we didn’t get in this litter. It is how it works, and it is not any different now than for the last twenty years plus. People always want us to project who we will mate, what will be born, and the likelihood of getting them a pup. Well, we refuse to lie to snag a new client–those people who cannot just wait, typically move on. After raising puppies for about fifty years, I can assure you that it is impossible to project (or predict) the future. To do so, well, that sure to result in frustration and possibly anger from a client.
I know this is frustrating–we all want to be in control and plan. This frustration is never more valid than for (us) Cliff and Shela–oh, to know what to tell people. To make promises would be excellent. On the other side of the topic, we receive notes from many prospective clients that are willing to trust us and wait–because they have experienced being on the Waitlist somewhere else, only to have what they want not produced. Or to see a litter not carried to term. Yes, this can happen, as well. It is devastating–sometimes people write that a breeder made the promise twice, and they didn’t get a puppy twice.
