If you were really interested in an Animation Acres puppy, I think it would be easier to phone Vicki, as she did post something on her FB page that she was changing over her internet. I thought she had a litter ready to go home in Feb, I could be wrong or they may all be spoken for.

I sent you a PM

I just noticed that the litter at Bowbell is not their dogs. Logan belongs to ambertru and dance is from dove cottage.

Hey millie'smom . Thanks. I got your pm! Hope I can pm soon too. Your pm was very helpful. I live in Toronto, but oakville is not too far from me. I am looking for breeders around 1-2 hour driving distance. I did look into animation acres earlier but their site is still not up and running yet. I really like stormynights dogs. Their looks are the type of goldens I'm looking for but the last female pup there has already had an inquiry about her. No luck for me.

Logan belongs to COnnie up at Ambertru. It is quite normal for a breeder to go to an outside stud dog to get what they want for their girl. I just bred to a boy who lives in Montana!!

Dance is owned by Shauna from Dovecottge, but her sire is one of Carole's (Bowbell) dogs. So it may be that part of the stud agreement was that Carole got to lease the pick girl back for a litter. They work together a fair bit, so it would not surprise me. It is not unusual for breeders with linked programs to do this.

As I mentioned before Carol Lee at Ambercroft and Wendy Pilger at Autumnmist both have puppies right now. Carol is north of Brampton, and Wendy at Gravenhurst, so both are within your 2 hour range.

Hi All...

Shelly thanks for the kind words about our dogs ! You are right we did lease Dance from Dovecottage. Sharon unfortunately is incredibly busy looking after her parents and didn't want Dance, to be unbred this season so offered her to us, being that she goes back to our Lainey and DJ we jumped at the chance. Dance is a fantasitc girl and goes back 3 generations, of excellent hips which we are very proud of ! She has been here with us for 2 mths now. We picked Logan for her because we feel he compliments her beautifully. We are so excited about this litter !

I'm afraid I may not want to return her to Sharon (Dovecottage) as she's become such a close knit part of our family already !

Again thank you for the kind words

Hi Miya,

Our golden is from Stormynights and we have nothing but praise for Kim! We went through five our six breeders during our selection process and liked Kim the best. Our puppy was about $1000 and he has not had any hip or elbow problems. He is very gentle with children and very loving.

Unfortunately, he does have some health problems: he has allergies to most meats and so he is on a special diet of hydrolyzed soy. We went through at least six or seven different food brands and types of meat before we resorted to the soy but since then, he has been healthy as a horse. (Aside from the odd ear infection or eye infection. Top tip: do not let your puppy play in a fountain). Kim was very supportive as we tried to find what was wrong with our dog and we tried many natural supplements and vitamins. Our vet says his allergies are a fluke and not related to the breeder--he's just "special." Kim kept a puppy from the same litter and apparently she has a cast iron stomach and no problems at all.

Hope this helps and happy hunting!
