The End Game?

Apparently there is a movie out that is causing some talk. Something about.. I don’t know. Last movie I saw at the theater, I think was Godzilla. The one with Matthew Brodrick? I don’t movie often, I guess.

But my son, who does movie often told me that these two pups looked just like Thor and Loki. Now I know who they are, ’cause I was sort of a mythology buff when I was younger. So!

Thor is a Poodle/Crested mix. He had a home but it fell through. Hey, stuff, happens, I know, and he is happy here – but would be happier with his very own family. Born Feb 4th, he is ready to go home now. He looks just like poodle dad except his hair isn’t as curly as dad’s. I think that is a good thing – that curly hair is challenging to keep brushed!


Sweet boy!

He is $350 – contact me soon!

Then there is Loki who is a Chinese Crested. Mom is about 15 pounds, dad is about 8 – he is smaller, but don’t tell him! He’s adorable, sweet, playful, fun and hypoallergenic. Born 3/24 he will be ready to home mid/late month. $400.



You know you need a baby for not only summer fun, but to be your best friend as long as they live.

One of those weeks….

So, we all have Those Weeks, or days when everything breaks and nothing works and the dogs poop on the floor, track in mud, mud, and more mud, and the car doesn’t start and the phone won’t work and there is nothing in the house worth eating….well! Yes. I’m whining. However, I’m luckier than many because I am never without comfort. Dogs on my lap, in my chair, in my bed, kissing me all over. I swear, no one can make you feel better than a dog loving on you.

We’ll be glad to cuddle after we finish shredding the paper towels. First things first!

Having a bad day? Week? A great one and wanting to share it? Hey, we like good days too!

Here is who are looking for forever homes! Ready to home mid/late May, there are four little dachshund babies wanting to share their love, sleep in your bed, eat your popcorn, chew your shoes and dig holes in your yard. What’s a sprained ankle between friends, right?

Dimitri was born 3/21 and looks to be a long haired like dad.


Then there is Deacon.


Born 3/24 here is Garrett.


Last but not least – Gretchen is a squishy little bundle of love…


Boys are $450, she is $500, and $100 holds with weekly pictures and updates till they are ready to go home! Could they be any cuter? I might be just a tad prejudiced, but that’s because I get cuddles and loves. Yeah, I’ll share – contact me soon! or for the fastest response! (like I said, my phone is being wonky….sigh – week is over soon!)

Who is Looking for a Forever Home? I’m Glad You Asked!

Time for an update – it has been crazy around here – how is your house? All sane and quiet and wonderful? You know what? I can change that – just add a puppy and shake! Or is that an olive and a martini? I don’t care for olives, and don’t drink martinis so it must be a puppy! Nothing will fill your house with love and laughter and annoyance and energy like a puppy will. Are they worth it? Yeah. No doubt.

I have several babies looking for forever homes! One came available just last night when his home fell through. We understand that and we are glad she knew now and not when puppy had been there 8 months and was doing his version of a puppy’s terrible twos!

His name is Hans and he’s a hairless male Chinese Crested – perfect for people who value the unusual, who might have allergies or cold hands (mine are my organic hand warmers) and a big warm heart. Born Jan 17th, he is ready to go home now. $450.

Hans – hairless male Crested

Then we also have a few Mini poodle/Chinese Crested mix pups. My poodle boy can be very sneaky. But I love him. These were born Feb 8th and are ready to go home end of the month. Mom has mostly weaned them already, they are eating well, and doing great.

Boys are $350 and they all look just like dad – the mini poodle. I don’t think their hair will be as curly, but other than that – daddy’s genes are strong.

Poodle mix – Simon

Poodle mix – Silas and Sebastian.

They have two sisters, too.

Samantha and Sabrina! $350

Too cute!

Also seeking a home, a litter of poodles – mom is a toy apricot, dad is my naughty mini. Born only March 9th, they will be ready to go home early May. Just in time for summer fun! One apricot girl, one black girl and one black boy. $500, $100 holds with weekly pictures and updates till they are ready to home. If you are interested, let me know soon, my last pure poodle litter homed before there eyes were open.

No names yet – have any ideas?

As always – email me,, or message me on Facebook, I update FB more than here, by the way. Leave me a message on here, or you can text or call, but really, I talk better with two hands than one finger….looking forward to meeting you!

Christmas Pups!


Hmmmm – so apparently my web people – yes, I have web people (who knew??) automatically upgraded my stuff.   If anyone knows me, change is not something I’m a big fan of, but we will see how this goes…. – if you hear someone sobbing in a corner, let me know and I’ll check a mirror, okay?

So there are a couple pups still looking for Christmas homes!  What other present will you give yourself that you will still be loving on in 18 years?  

There are two boys – same mom, same dad and oh so different.  I don’t judge.  I have two brothers.  One is five ten and bald.  The other is six five and is still brushing a full head of hair, which is hardly fair because no one ever looks down on it.  But!   The pups are both Chinese Cresteds – Nicholas is considered a hairless, though he has quite a bit of hair.  Very good pup for those with mild allergies and who just kinda don’t like hair.    


Then there is Tiny Tim – who, despite his name is a  big, fluffy, bundle of love and kisses.   He has hair and will enjoy your de stressing time of brushing.  Just as good as yoga!  

Tiny Tim

He’s adorable!

$400 each and ready to go home to be your best friend next week, just in time for Christmas!  Or they can hang out here till after your parties are over.    Some people have lives, I hear.  I just hang out with the dogs.  They appreciate it, I’m sure. 

There is also one Mini Poodle/Chinese Crested mix – CrestiePoo!   – left from a litter. His name is Oliver and won’t be ready to go home till mid January.   Can you think of a better time?  He will be home in time for lots of long winter night couch snuggles, popcorn sharing, crisp morning walks,  keeping your feet warm in bed.      He can’t wait!  $350 and $100 holds with weekly updates till he goes home!

Too cute!

Contact me soon for more information –

Got your tree up?

Are you doing a tree? I have mine up  but nothing under it yet.  I keep thinking – let’s just keep the presents safe.   What’s under yours?  I know a few pups who would not only be the best present under the tree this year, but also for the next 18 years.  What other present can say that?  They might as well give up and go to the Isle of Misfit Toys now!

Nicholas and Tiny Tim are both Chinese Crested boys and are ready to go home Christmas week!  Nicholas will be much less hairy – he will have the typical Crested bald spots and Tim will be a fluffy bundle of love.



Tiny Tim

Tiny Tim

Adorable, right?  Either will be a wonderful addition to your family life.   $400 each  $100 holds until Christmas week (or after if you are busy).

Then we have Mini Poodle/Chinese Crested mixes.  One little sable girl ($400) and 2 little black and white boys ($350 each) who were just born 11/25 so won’t be ready to home till mid January.   Just in time for long winter  night cuddles under the blanket and in front of the fire, crisp morning walks and more love that you can handle.




Oh – and shhhhh……don’t tell anyone….. but we have a brand new dachshund litter just born 12/6.   2 boys – one a silver blue, one a dark red, and two girls – reddish and white and dark brown and white.   My last litter was homed before they were a week old so if you have any interest contact me asap.   Aren’t they adorable!!!  $500 each – $100 holds till they are ready to home!

2 girls, 2 boys

they reek of cute!

I hope you all have a great holiday!

Time for Joy and Time for…Yukon Cornelius?

I love Rudolph!  The movie,  you know, the one with Burl Ives as the snowman.  Does the snowman have a name?  Huh.  Wait…..OH!  Google is your friend, my friends.   Sam the Snowman!  How could I have watched this for years and not known this?  I guess I was too busy hanging out waiting for the hunky prospector to show up.   Sigh…. yes, I’m easily impressed, why do you ask?

Anyway!   Now that I have my head away from cute beards and ‘staches –  let’s talk about puppies, because that is why you are really here, right?   There are two little boys ready to go home for Christmas.  What other present under the tree will be loved 18 years from now?  Not even a new car!  Well, maybe a Corvette?  But a puppy will.   They are ready to be your best friend for the rest of their lives.  Are you needing some unconditional love?  I’ve got it for you.   Two little Chinese Crested boys – look at those eyes  – they are searching for homes!




There is also Tiny Tim.  Yes, the Scrooge with Mr. Magoo is the only real one, in my opinion.   He is a soft cuddly bundle of fluff and love.

Tiny Tim

They were born 11/6 and are ready to go home around Christmas.  $400 each – $100 deposit holds till you are ready for them!

Then we have a brand new set of babies born 11/25..  2 black and white males, one sable female.  These are mini poodle/Crested mixes and will be ready to home mid January.    Put a collar and leash under the tree and they will be ready to come home after your life calms down again!

Sable girl 

Black and white boys

Girl is $400  – boys are $350.  $100 holds with weekly pictures till homed.

So – what are your favorite Christmas movies?

The Christmas Pups!

You looking for the best present under your tree AND your best friend for the next 18 years?  Guess what I have! Both of them, wrapped up in a sweet fuzzy, kissy, playful ball of love:

Thinking of a poodle?  Lucky you!  We have a few – females are $500 – males $450  – a hundred deposit holds till pick up around Christmas.

Everyone needs a Cousin Eddie to liven up their lives! What will he think of next? No one knows! But we do know, he will make us laugh!

Mom is a toy poodle, dad is a mini poodle. He will be smaller and adorably fun! Ready to home around Christmas week – are you smarter than a poodle?  HA! Don’t fool yourself!

Cousin Eddie

And every Cousin Eddie needs a Clark!



Then there are the sisters!   Sweet Holly and Sugar Cookie –

Oh and we have the Chinese Cresteds!   Born 11/6.   Dad is a tiny 8 pound HL – mom is about 15 pounds of puff, so they will be small, but sturdy, active and most of all, loving.    This is the pup for loyalty and devotion.  Whatever you want – weirdly, they do too!  Take a long walk? Sure!  Cuddle on the couch for days – how did you know?   Long drives or visits to nursing homes?  Got you covered!   One girl – two boys!

Yukon, as you can see, doesn’t have much hair but isn’t a ‘true’ hairless.  He can be easily shaved down, though, or you can let his fuzz be.  He won’t care. Great for the allergy prone or someone who just wants unusual.

Tiny Tim

There you are – all will be ready to home Christmas week or can hang out here a while, until you recover from your New Year’s hangover or Christmas vacation.    Just remember – these are not one and done’s.  They are not just presents to go under the tree to be discarded in Feb when it’s sleeting out, pup needs to pee and you don’t want to deal.  You get to deal for the next 18 years.   I expect that from my people…and the pups expect that from you too.

However – I do help with housebreaking – I will send you information and there is a page on my website –   that I’m starting to put product information on.  Check it out!   You will thank me next time it sleets.

Contact me soon – or  and leave me a message.  You will have the best present under the tree!

Christmas, Christmas, time is near, time for joy and….

Time for puppies!  What could be better than a puppy under the tree?  Why, YES, you are right – a best friend for the next 18 years!    Guess what there are here?  Again – look how smart you are – yes,  your new best friend and ready to go home around Christmas time!    (Or they can hang out here a while till you get back from vacation.  No worries.)

First of all we have Chinese Cresteds – 3 girls and 2 boys, all puffs, but one hairless male. These will be small, delightful, dancing little dogs who don’t bark much, love kids and adults, love to please and be with their people.  The perfect dogs for long walks and longer snuggles on the couch watching their favorite sappy Christmas movie!   None of them should exceed 15 pounds but all will be sturdy, healthy, happy babies who will be the best thing you did for yourself this year.  Girls are $450, boys are $400 – $100 deposit holds till Christmas with weekly updates and pictures till home time.

Noelle Joy

Twinkle has more white on her face.

Then the two boys – Yukon is going to be a hairless – perfect if you like unusual dogs, or have a family with allergies!   He will have hair on his head, legs and tail but his body will have only a bit of fuzz which is easily shaved down.

Yukon Cornelius

Tiny Tim

Pink – the cat keeping watch over Yukon and Tiny Tim

Then we have the Poodles!   Mom is a sable with a hint of apricot toy and Dad is my infamous playboy  black mini poodle.   They were born within 12 hours of the Cresteds because I don’t need sleep!!!!!  True fact.     4 Boys and  2 Girls

Cousin Eddie and Clark

Candy Cane and Sugar Cookie (f)



Hey, I’m tired, how about you?  Want a long winter’s nap?  Got any sugarplums?

Contact me soon – $100 deposit holds your new best friend!

Puppies and Stuff

Ready to go home at the end of November, there are a few fat, sweet, lumps of adorableness looking for homes.   Just now starting to develop personalities, they are Mini Poodle/Chinese Crested mixes.  Some look just like dad – others won’t have the curly hair he does, and are marked more like their black and white mom.

There are two boys – Luke and Blake.

Luke looks just like his dad!

Then there are the girls – Cassadee, Kacey, Miranda and Maren!

The girls

Maren is all black.  Cassadee has the gorgeous eyes.   Kacey has the mostly black head and Miranda has the cute little ears.

They are all going to be great little companion dogs. Raised in the house, not a kennel, loved on daily, about ten – 15 pound fully grown and smart as they are cute.   They will park play, couch snuggle, bed sleep and want to be fed from the table – hey – their folks do (and occasionally get some.  My babies are spoiled.)

$350 for the boys, $400 for the girls  $100 holds with weekly pictures and updates till they are ready to go home.    Contact me with questions!  – Kates Kennel on Facebook /

On a different note – I have a new book coming out soon –  Thursday, Nov 1!

Here is the cover – I LOVE it!!

You can check out the rest of my books on Amazon:

Did that work?  It looks weird – anyway  – Megan  McCoy in the kindle store!
