breeding program & litters

As a small breeder, much consideration goes into planning of litters. I usually only breed 1-2 litters each year, however, there are a number planned for 2019. Upcoming breeding plans for SPRING 2019 will include Pippin’s final litter (CH Long Lane's Promise to Limberlost x SE CH Don’s Superman) and Harlow’s (CH Don’s Cirque du Soleil x CH Clussexx Pay Per View for Don’s) second litter immediately following this current litter. Litters will be whelped in either Nova Scotia or NJ depending on my academic schedule. If you are interested, please read, complete, and submit the questionnaire and contact me to discuss the litters.

current litter

Pippin (CH Long Lane’s Promise to Limberlost) was bred to Don’s Superman (Hugo) and whelped 5 puppies (2 girls, 3 boys) on April 2, 2019! Her pregnancy has been confirmed here (I don’t know how to read an u/s but the vet says there are puppies!). The puppies (all are spoken for) are cute, lively, and biddable! Pippin is a fabulous momma! Here are pictures of Pippin and Hugo (click on their names).

‘WH’ Litter

November 21, 2018

Harlow finally came into season during the summer and was bred to Watson (Long Lane Lasting Impression) and then delivered 8 puppies (4 girls, 4 boys) over three hours without incident. This is Harlow’s first litter and she is a fabulous and patient momma. The puppies are bright, funny, active, yet are wonderful lap puppies. These puppies have all been spoken for and will travel mid-January 2019 to their forever homes in Houston TX, Brooklyn NY, Olathe KS, Victoria BC (Canada), Princeton NJ, and Street MD.

'Nautical' Litter

April 5, 2018

Teddy came into season unexpectedly (as I was waiting for Pippin and/or Harlow) and I elected to use frozen semen for her (absolute!) last litter. She safely delivered 8 puppies (5 boys and 3 girls) via c-section followed by her spay. All of these puppies either reside on the water or has direct access to the water, thus the nautical theme. They are all living wonderful lives in Scituate, MA, Hingham, MA, Boston, MA, Woodstock, VT, Ithaca, NY, New York City, NY, Toronto, ON, and Coldbrook, NS.

'Last' Litter 

July 9, 2016

Teddy's last litter is her most tempered one. While separated from Pippin's puppies until they were two weeks old,  once in the pack they became as active as their kin but equally as smart and responsive! These little ones are now happily living with their families on the MA coast, the blue grass in Kentucky, the summer camp by Acadia National Park, and near the Citadel in South Carolina.

'Time' Litter

December 28, 2015

After a leisurely drive from NS to ME to NY and finally to Lawrenceville, NJ, Teddy delivered 4 healthy puppies (1 boy, 3 girls) within an hour after arriving JUST IN TIME. Teddy enjoyed Tessa's and Marion's company during her confinement. These puppies when to their forever homes in an architectural paradise in Florida, on a large acreage in Maryland, by the University of Wisconsin in Madison, and as a transient dog between Long Beach Island and Florida.

'Winter' Litter

March 4, 2014

Snow and storms was the name of the game when Teddy was bred to Freedom (GCH Ivywild's Seven Blessings) and whelped 7 little blessings. The worst storms to hit NS and MA did not deter our travels to Boston for breeding and NJ for whelping. These puppies went to their forever homes in CO, PA, NY, MA, VA, and RI just when winter was ending!

'Promise' Litter

April 14, 2012

This was Teddy's first litter. As it was a litter promised by Teddy's co-owner Colleen O'Keefe (along with the promise of Teddy's CH), promise became the litter theme. The litter was whelped at Rolyart's as Colleen was ill at the time. She returned  home to spend time with the puppies but re-entered the hospital as the first puppy was going to her forever home. Sadly, Colleen passed away two weeks later. These puppies are currently loved by their families in AZ, RI, IO, MN, WA, and NS.
