10-11-23 We have lowered Bailey’s puppies’ prices down to $1600 to make room for others. We are still open for puppy playtime if anyone wants to play. Still looking for a home for Heart. She is a cute, scruffy little Bernedoodle girl. She is very loving with people and other dogs.
9-27-23 I am working hard each day to get cute updated photos and videos of our pups. The videos are usually posted on Facebook and Instagram. Cleo has a few boys who are available at $1600. Bailey’s girls and boys are $2000. Lucy’s 6 bernedoodle puppies are almost 6 weeks and 6 1/2 weeks old. I should have all their new photos up be the end of today. Artemis’s 6 bernedoodle pups are very friendly and 5 1/2 weeks old. They are super cute and LOVE visits. Rosie’s 6 mini goldendoodles are 2 1/2 weeks old and almost ready to leave the whelping box. Snickers’ 10 mini bernedoodles are 1 week old and growing well. Nala’s 3 micro mini goldendoodles are also 1 week old and looking beautiful. Daisy’s 8 mini goldendoodle pups are 1 week old and growing well at Frankie’s house. They will stay with her till they are about 7 weeks old when they will move in with us.
We have had several people and families come over to play with and cuddle our puppies recently. We love having people come over to play with our pups, so if you are interested, let us know by email. It’s good for the puppies and its great for the visitors!
9-8-23 Cleo’s pups are 8 weeks old tomorrow. To make room for the litters coming in a week and a half, we are reducing prices on Shasta’s mini bernedoodles and Cleo’s medium goldendoodles. We are also offering an additional 10% discount for families of first responders as well.
8-29-23 We have lots of cute pups and their mothers ready to go home.
Gracie is going to her new guardian home this week. It has been a lot of fun having her around. Dakota is going to Riverside to begin work with our daughter as her service dog. Arya is going back to her guardian home with our older daughter in Riverside and Cleo will soon be leaving to go back to her guardians in Folsom.
Caleia and Pippin have been spayed/neutered and are waiting for the perfect families to come along and take them home as new family members. They are both sweet dogs and produced cute puppies, but deserved homes of their own.
8-21-23 We have a few pups ready to go home this weekend. Shasta and Arya’s pups are having their vet checks today and tomorrow and then they will be heading home. There are several pups available from each litter as well as little Amos, who is 10 weeks old and the sweetest puppy imaginable. He does well with potty training and accepts his crate. He’s a beautiful boy and ready for someone special
8-7-23 We are beginning selection visits for Arya and Shasta’s litters. Cleo’s litter will be next. She has 12 medium goldendoodle pups and her sister, Bailey, has 10!
Pudding has been brought back to us through no fault of her own and is looking for a family who can give her lots of love and attention. Having another dog to play with is a bonus as well! She is crate trained and working on potty training. She comes with lots of fun toys, bedding and other goodies.
7-10-23 We are looking for 3 guardian homes in the next few girls for the next generation of Quartz Mountain mommas. Guardian dogs are freely provided and live with families as pets. We will be adding a mini aussiedoodle, standard goldendoodle and standard bernedoodle soon. If interested, check out the guardian page for more information and then give us a call or email. The first step in the process is to review our contract and then have us visit your home to make sure it is puppy safe. After the dog retires, the guardian gets to keep the dog for free. We will also be retiring Bailey, Lucy Lou and Caleia soon.
7-5-23 Caleia’s puppies have had their vet appointment and are all healthy. Zoey’s 5 babies are getting photographed today and will be online in a day or so. Arya has 6 new pups as of July 2 and Shasta had 9 new babies on July 1. Pictures coming in the next day or two. Rosie has been bred with Tucker. BB will be bred in a little over a week.

Selections for Snickers’ puppies begins on the 6th and there will be a few still available to new people. They are getting active and love their canned puppy food.

All of Arya’s pups have been reserved and most have gone to their new homes.
We have 3 mini bernedoodle pups available and ready to go to their new homes. They are pictured on Shasta and Pippin’s page.

11-6-22 We had a busy weekend. Avon, now Ash, is our first dog going to Hearts 4 Heros USA, a non profit organization who desires to place therapy dogs in fire houses to support our firefighters mental health and wellness. http://www.Hearts4heroesusa.org/
We had 1 other Bernedoodle girl go home; Aspen, who is now known as Darby. 2 of our mini goldendoodles also went to new homes. We have 1 Standard Bernedoodle and 1 Mini Goldendoodle available. Both are loving beautiful babies.
Our babies have been enjoying daily walks around our property, chasing pinecones and learning how to “sit”. We will be having Mini Aussiedoodles near Thanksgiving with Zoey, Mini Goldendoodles with Arya, Medium Goldendoodle with Cleo and Mini Bernedoodles with Shasta in December.

We are waiting for Zoey, Snickers, Shasta and Arya to go into heat any day now.
8-22-22 We had a very busy week! On Wednesday, Daisy gave birth to her first litter, consisting of 3 boys and 3 girls. They are being raised in my guardian dog owner’s house.

Artemis and Ozzy-Standard F1B Bernedoodles
Daisy and Phoenix-mini F1B goldendoodles
Rosie and Toby – larger mini F1B Goldendoodles
Bailey and Lincoln – medium F1B goldendoodles
3-29-22 As I’ve been going through my mini goldendoodle waitlist, I have been realizing that I will have some of Rosie’s puppies available. So, If you are interested in a dark red, F1 mini goldendoodle, let me know! They are in the selection process now and will be ready for their new homes on April 16th. I’m also looking for a guardian home for one of her girls who I am keeping!
3-21-22 Artemis’ puppies are busy running, making messes and seeing visitors! There are only 4 available! Rosie’s puppies have started eating food and are just beginning to waddle around. Zoey is pregnant with our first litter of Aussiedoodles. Snickers, Shasta and Arya have been bred, but no pregnancies have been confirmed and Cleo will be bred in a little over a week.
We are looking for a few guardian homes for some of our puppies and dogs. Please see the guardian dog page.
2-21-22 Our puppy room is full of puppies! Artemis has 13 standard bernedoodles and Rosie has 10 red mini goldendoodles. Everyone is growing great and looking beautiful!
1-27-22 Lilly has gone home to her new family in Roseville. BB’s last pup also went to Roseville, but with a different family. Both dogs got great, loving, active homes!
1-22-22 BB’s puppies begin going home today! There is still 1 little boy available.
We have exciting pregnancy news! Artemis is pregnant and will be having a litter of standard F1B Bernedoodles near Valentine’s Day. Rosie is also pregnant and will be having F1 mini goldendoodles near the end of February. They should be dark red pups since Rosie and Oliver are both dark red.
Lilly, our retriever, has been spayed and is looking for a nice retirement home. She is very calm, but clumsy and would do well with most people, other dogs and cats. She spins when she is happy and doesn’t always have great spatial awareness. We don’t want her knocking over an elderly person, so a little younger owner would be ideal.
1-2-22 We wish everyone a Happy New Year!
We are hoping for several new litters this year from new moms as well as some of our current girls. We have bred our standard Bernedoodle, Artemis, to a standard blue merle poodle named Ozzy. We are looking forward to this being our first ever litter of standard F1B Bernedoodles! We have bred Rosie, our red golden retriever, to a toy poodle, Oliver, and are hoping for lots of dark red mini F1 goldendoodles from them! We are planning to keep 2 girls from that litter as future m ommies. We won’t know about either girl’s pregnancy till close to the end of January.
At this moment, we have 5 mini black goldendoodle boys and 1 apricot medium male goldendoodle. Then, we have a little break till our next litter near the middle of February. We also got a mini Australian shepherd baby girl who we have named Caleia and look forward to mini Aussiedoodles from her early in 2023.
12-22-21 Yeti, from Arya, is the only puppy we have available before Christmas. In Bailey’s litter, there are 3 boys and 1 girl available and they go home on or after January 10. BB’s pups go home January 22.
For upcoming litters, we do not have any pregnancies confirmed, but we did breed Artemis to a standard AKC poodle last week and hope for puppies in Feburary. Rosie is being bred this week for mini F1 goldendoodles who should be dark red. We won’t know if these girls are pregnant till late January. Shasta, our mini bernedoodle, should go into her second heat in January and be bred for mini F1B bernedoodles.
Sophie found a great new home with a couple and a German Shepherd brother and is acclimating well. Bilbo is living in Orangevale with 2 people brothers and their parents. He is enjoying them immensely!
12-9-21 There are 4 puppies available in Arya’s litter. These are our smallest mini goldendoodles. Jellybean, Twinkie, Yeti and Shiver are looking for families. They are ready to go home Friday, December 17. Also, Lilly’s F1 medium pup, Caesar, is available. My lists for Cleo and BB’s pups are still open.
12-5-21 There are new photos of Lilly’s and Cleo’s puppies on their litter pages. Lilly’s pups are leaving us beginning on Wednesday and we will miss their fat squiggly bodies. Arya’s puppies are in the midst of the selection process and it looks like there might be a couple of boys available. Cleo’s pups have opened their eyes and are beginning to waddle around…not very far, but one of them managed to crawl out of the whelping box today, so the whelping box will be leaving this week and they will begin wandering around more! BB’s pups are still little beans and only 1 week old. She has lots of very shiny black babies.
11-21-21 We will be contacting people on the mini waiting list to come and visit Gabbi’s pups and take their puppies home. We will also be contacting people on our medium list to come visit Lilly’s puppies and make their selections, although they won’t be ready to go home till December 8.
11-4-21 Lilly’s puppies have graduated from the whelping box into a bigger area and are moving around very unsteadily. Lilly continues to be a great mom and just loves her babies. When I send her out to go potty, several of her babies howl in protest. Their little “OOOOO” shaped mouths are so sweet!
Arya’s babies are all growing well and stay huddled together in their puppy pile. Their eyes haven’t opened yet and I will take photos of them when they are a little older.
Gabbi’s puppies have now experienced life outside the puppy room and are learning how to use a doggy door to the great outdoors, which they love. Even more than playing outside, they love people and it is so comical to see them toddle after us with their short fat tails wagging like crazy! I will get a video and post it on Instagram and Facebook later! They are just adorable. They are also developing quite a love for their soft, yummy food. You should hear them whining for it in the morning!
10-3-21 Little John and Ruby have sold and are in their new homes! Because we have so many mini goldendoodle puppies, we are opening our waiting list early. All of our waiting lists are open for upcoming litters.
10-2-21 Gabbi had her puppies on Wednesday and there are 7 beautiful, fat babies! She has 5 girls and 2 boys and all are doing well.
Arya is definitely pregnant and getting bigger by the day. Lilly is also expanding. This will be her last litter of medium F1 Goldendoodles. Lilly is the calmest retriever we have ever seen! We have bred Cleo to Lincoln and BB to Phoenix.
We have 2 available puppies at the moment: Little John (F1B Bernedoodle) and Ruby (F1b mini Goldendoodle). Please call or email for info about these pups.
9-22-21 We are currently on pregnancy watch for Gabbi. She was due Monday and no signs of puppies yet! It will be soon! Lilly is due in the middle of October with her F1 medium puppies. We haven’t confirmed Arya’s pregnancy yet, but we should know soon. We have 5 pups who are still waiting for their forever families.
9-17-21 We are down to 8 available puppies and they all have new photos on their pages. There are 2 red tuxedo male bernedoodles, 1 large mini F1B goldendoodle and 5 medium F1 goldendoodles. Enjoy the photos!
9-10-21 Several of Bailey, Artemis and Sophie’s puppies go home beginning on Saturday! They are so cute and fuzzy and we will miss their antics! However, they will all become stars in their own homes and live the spoiled lives they deserve. I hope to get photos of everyone who is still with us on Sunday. They grow so fast and get cuter every day, if that is possible! There are several medium F1 goldendoodles and a few red and white F1B bernedoodles available.
In other news, Gabbi is indeed pregnant and is due on the 21st of September. Arya and Lilly have also been bred to Bilbo. Cleo will be bred near the end of next week, we think. The only one we are waiting on is BB and that should be any day!
8-15-21 We apologize for the delay in getting new photos online. My camera is not cooperating with my computer. I hope to get some photos up on the website, Facebook and Instagram tomorrow. I will be starting with Sophie’s pups, then Rosie’s, Artemis and finally, Bailey’s. Also, Gabbi and Phoenix have been bred as have Lilly and Bilbo. Arya and Bilbo will be bred next week.
8-1-21 Rosie had 11 puppies on Tuesday, July 20. Bilbo is the father and they are F1 medium pups. We have no more puppies coming for a couple of months. Gabbi just was bred to Phoenix and we are awaiting heat cycles from Lilly, Cleo, BB and Arya. We have been busy doing ENS on all 30 puppies and plan to do some update phots this week as some of their eyes have now opened! They are getting cuter by the day!
7-19-21 We’ve had a busy puppy room since late Thursday night/early Friday morning. Bailey delivered 5 puppies from 11 pm to 4 am. On Saturday at 8:30, Artemis delivered 10 puppies. I the middle of her delivery, Sophie got in on the action by delivering 4 puppies of her own. I am working on getting photos on each litter’s page. Rosie is likely to deliver her medium F1 goldendoodles tonight since her temperature went way down last night.
7-14-21 Tinkerbell is healing well from her spay and will be ready to go to her new family in a couple of weeks. She is just as happy as ever!
Sophie is still hanging on to her babies and her temperature is not showing that deliver is eminent. Bailey and Artemis are right on her heels. Bailey’s temp is actually lower than Sophie’s today, but not near the 99 degree mark. Generally, when the temp falls into the 99 degree range, delivery is less than 24 hours away! We also have one more pregnancy with Rosie, our dark red golden retriever and Bilbo. She is due in a few weeks and is already showing. This will be her first litter. I will post some photos of her in the next few days.
Our waiting list for miniature Goldendoodles is now closed unless you already have a puppy from Quartz Mountain.
6-30-21 We just want to let you all know that Tinkerbell underwent a miscarriage a week ago and is doing fine, but there will be no puppies from her. She will be spayed next week and after healing from that surgery, will be going to a new home. Also, we have 3 confirmed pregnancies and they are all due in July. Sophie and Phoenix are due early in July, Bailey and Phoenix are due mid July and Artemis and Colt are due the third week of July.
6-5-21 ******Mini Goldendoodle wait list opening at 10 am on Saturday, June 26 by email only. ***********Just send me an email and I will send a waiting list back to the first 20 people who respond.

Puppies will be $3000 unless they are particolored. Partis are $300 more.
5-21-21 We are working to update photos and there are a few videos on Facebook and Instagram. We have decided to release Calliope to be adopted. We were planning to keep her for breeding, but we discovered a tiny umbilical hernia and cannot breed her after all. She went to her new home last week and her new family adores her.
5-20-21 Exciting news for everyone on our medium bernedoodle waiting list! We are taking Artemis to the vet today to breed with an outside stud, Colt. We hope for her first litter to be beautiful and be born near July 23. I can’t add any more people on her waiting list till I know she is pregnant and we have more puppies than people waiting. I am just so happy to anticipate Artemis’ first litter! We have also bred Tinkerbell (medium), Sophie (mini), and Bailey (mini) in the last few weeks.
5-17-21 We have 3 spots open for BB’s black mini goldendoodles. They are awesome, funny pups who get all of Frankie’s attention and yes, they are spoiled! Sophie and Bailey have been bred for litters in July, hopefully. Tinkerbell has been bred for medium goldendoodle pups in July and Artemis is going to be bred next week for medium bernedoodles. It is very busy around here with our puppies growing and playing and new pregnancies! Remember, we are opening our list for medium sized goldendoodles on Saturday morning right at 10. I have an F1 boy from Lilly and Lincoln who will be going to someone on this new waiting list. He is ready to go home on May 27, so someone won’t be waiting very long!
5-10-21 Lily (Cleo) has 6 new babies to care for in her first litter. There are 4 girls and 2 boys and photos on her page. The new waiting list for medium goldendoodles will open on the 22nd. More info is on the waiting list page. We will be taking new photos of BB’s pups tomorrow and getting them on the website as soon as possible. Also, we are looking for a very secure guardian home for our new mini phantom poodle male, Pippen. He will be the sire of our bernedoodes in about a year if he passes all his health tests.
5-1-21 I just posted new photos of Arya and Lilly’s puppies. Thank you for your patience! Our daughter got married last weekend and most of our time was occupied by that! BB’s puppies have opened their eyes and will get photos this coming week. And, in less than 2 weeks, Cleo/Lily will present us with a whole new bunch of adorable puppies. We will be starting the process of selections for Lilly’s puppies on May 6 and for Arya’s puppies on May 11.
*******My waiting list for medium goldendoodles will open up sharply at 10:00 on Saturday, May 22 via email only. At that time, email me at [email protected] and I will respond back.

4-13-21 Lots of news! My daughter and I went to visit Lily/Cleo and performed a pregnancy test which came back resoundingly positive! So, we expect some medium apricot and parti pups in another month!
Then, on Monday, I went over to BB’s home at 11 pm because the time of her delivery had come! She now has 10 new puppies. There are 6 black puppies and 4 red-apricot puppies. There are 4 girls and 6 boys as well! BB did an awesome job and has taken to motherhood with ease! Frankie has named all the puppies with names beginning with the letter L in honor of her and her husband’s last name.
4-7-21 Gabbi’s prospective puppy owners are beginning to come and select their puppies! Everyone is having a great time with that process!
Lilly had 7 puppies on Thursday, April 1 and Arya had 5 puppies on Tuesday, April 6. She has 4 girls and 1 boy. I visited BB yesterday and I think she is going to have a large litter. She feels like a basketball! Lily’s (Cleo) guardian family feels she might very well be pregnant. She has thrown up twice and her nipples seem enlarged. So, I am hopeful that she is going to give us puppies in May.
3-25-21 There are new photos of Gabbi’s pups on her litter page. In about 2 weeks, we will begin having visitors for her puppies. Lilly and Arya and BB are all looking round and full of puppies.
3-4-21 Gabbi had 7 puppies early Tuesday morning. There are 4 girls and 3 boys. All the pups will go to people already on our waiting list. Arya is next to have her pups in the beginning of April. Lilly will be having medium sized pups close to Arya. BB will follow them later in the month of April with minis. Lily (Cleo) will be bred this coming weekend for mediums. So, lots of babies coming!
2-22-21 All of Tinkerbell’s puppies have gone to their new homes and Bailey’s puppies start leaving this coming weekend. I am beginning to contact people on my mini list for Sophie’s puppy selections. Gabbi’s guardian family wrote me last week saying that all of a sudden Gabbi was looking pregnant and her tummy seemed to have doubled overnight. When I visited her 3 weeks ago, we were all convinced she was not pregnant, so I didn’t do the blood test. Well, she surprised us and is now looking definitely pregnant! She is due the first week of March.
1-29-21 We have people coming to visit Tinkerbell and Bailey’s puppies beginning in February. They are getting fatter and fuzzier by the day. They are very happy, friendly pups. In other medium goldendoodle news, Lilly has been bred and I will know in 5 weeks if she is pregnant. BB just went into heat and will be bred in about a week and a half.
For our minis, Sophie’s puppies will be opening their little eyes soon and be moving about in a week or so. I should know in about a week if Gabbi is pregnant. My daughter took off for college in Riverside, 8 hours away, and the day after she arrived, Arya went into heat! So, I am driving half way to meet her on Saturday to bring Arya home for breeding. I will be breeding Arya in a little over a week. All in all, it is a busy time around here.
1-23-21 Tinkerbell’s pups are 4 week old and I will be reaching out to the first 6 people on my waiting list to set up visits for people to come, play with the pups, and make their selections. Bailey’s pups are beginning to work their way out of the whelping box and will be exploring the puppy room soon. Sophie had her pups last Saturday night and they are growing well and looking sweet and healthy! Sophie is a very protective mother and her babies are kept shiny and clean. I have posted a few new photos of them. I hope to do Bailey’s puppies’ photos tomorrow or Monday. I can do a pregnancy test for Gabbi next week to see if she is pregnant and Lilly has just gone into heat, so we will be breeding her in a week and a half.
1-6-21 Bailey and Tinkerbell’s pups are growing fatter by the day and Tinkerbell’s babies are just starting to open their eyes! I’ll take photos on Friday. Sophie is getting rounder and rounder and due on the 16th. Gabbi has been bred to Phoenix, but we won’t know if she is pregnant for a month and there is the possibility that she might go into heat again. She has had a split heat twice in the past and I don’t know if she will do the same thing this time.
We do not have any open waiting lists at this point. I don’t anticipate opening any lists till approximately February and that will be for F1 or F1B medium pups from Lilly and BB.
1-1-21 Two things happened today. Our little Tinkerbell boy passed away peacefully with his little head resting comfortably on the stuffed animal we had placed in the basket with him. There must have been something going on internally that we couldn’t see.
After checking on him, I looked in on Bailey and Tinkerbell and discovered that in 2 hours, Bailey had delivered her first litter, all by herself! She had 6 babies and they all looked fat and healthy. Happy New Year!
12-27-20 Tinkerbell started running a fever of 103.1 and we called the vet for advice. Since she was still eating well and acting completely normal, we decided to just watch her for signs of improvement and by morning, her temperature was down to normal range. The tiniest puppy, who was about a third the size of his siblings was not able to maintain his body’s temperature, so he came inside to be placed in a basket with a heating pad. He was bottle-fed every 2-3 hours and on antibiotics. He ate well, but never vigorously.
12-26-20 Tinkerbell had 6 puppies from 11 pm on Christmas Eve and ending at 8 am Christmas morning. I could tell she still had a puppy inside, so, by late afternoon, at our vet’s advice, we gave her some oxytocin. It increased her contractions, but no puppy was produced. After a second dose of oxytocin an hour later and still no pup, Tom took her to the vet’s office. He tried a couple of different things, but no luck. So, at 9:30 pm, he performed a C-section and 2 puppies were born limp, lifeless and dehydrated. Tinkerbell was also dehydrated and was given an entire bag of IV fluids. One puppy, a male, was revived and given fluids, but the other was unresponsive. At 12:30 am, Tom brought home a groggy momma dog and a fat, hungry, very large puppy. The vet advised us to watch Tinkerbell closely for fever or other signs of infection. All of the puppies did well with bottle feeding in her absence.
12-23-20 I am beginning to think that Tinkerbell will hold onto her puppies till Christmas Day again, just like last year! What a dog! She was due on Monday, but no signs of any changes yet. I take her temperature twice a day and when it plummets down below 98 degrees, she will have puppies within 24 hours!
Bailey is due in the first week of January and Sophie is due in the middle of the month. Gabbi just went into heat and should be bred the first week of January for puppies in March or April. She has had split heats the last two pregnancies and has been rebred a month after her first breeding. Makes life interesting! Our two new mini bernedoodle girls are growing and learning their manners well. One of them, Snickers, has been claimed by our daughter who is working hard on potty training and obedience training. Her hardest lesson is to learn to take treats gently. I don’t even think she tastes the treat, but just gulps it right down without even chewing! Shasta, her sister is in a guardian home nearby and is really doing amazing things with her owners and big brother, Truckee, who was a Paisley puppy. Both girls are absolutely stunning!
