Realistically, Butters isn't going to be big enough for my program. :(
Such a bummer to as she's got the best personality.
I love everything about her, but she's only 11.4 pounds at 9 months old.
That's just too small for me to take the chance on breeding her, so I will be placing her into a pet home.
Butters will join a previous MZBostons family who has a VooDoo x Bindi pup, Enzo, on September 10th and made her home in Minnesota.
We couldn’t let him go a single day without a Pug.
Thank you Rozeboom Puggles for making this guy's day!
Please keep Phoenix in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow as he has to do one of the hardest things as a pet owner.
His sweet lil pug, Ellie, will be helped across the rainbow bridge with the assistance of our wonderful Vet along with Phoenix by her side.
Never an easy thing to do especially when you always wish they could live forever.

Lily (formerly Saturday) went home and her new momma did her very first professional photoshoot.

We loved you 5 Years and 3 days shy of 4 Months... but we will always love you.
My Mom had just gotten her Mini Cooper when we picked him up in it 3 days later at Flyin' J in Sioux Falls.
He was born in Florida, went to a breeder in Texas, and I paid to have her deliver him to me when he was around a year and a half old.
He's what started my fawn obsession.
Well today, August 1st, was the day folks.
It was time for others to love him too.
I'll admit this one was tough. Certain dogs always are.
When I find them the perfect home, it makes it a little easier.
Yeti is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met.
He loved to flop on his back on his back for a belly rub. I called him a little flounder.
He'd prance around in the yard like a gazelle and play with his outside toys.
Just an overall lover boy.
You're one in a million Yeti spaghetti.
Enjoy your life in Minnesota!
Thank you Jon and Stefanie for delivering him to Stef's parents.
He will be an "only dog" unless his kids Huck and Maisey stop by for a visit. He truly deserves all the one on one attention he can get! He deserves it.
One of the parts I dislike about breeding is all the de-worming and vaccinations you have to do.
I get it. It's a lot.
They are all very much needed.
It's the after effects I don't like.
It tends to stress out their little GI systems.
Poop goes runny/mushy/sometimes a little blood in the stool, mucous, you name it...
As breeders we are trying to prevent what stress brings out when puppies go home.
These things live in the gut normally.
We all have bacterial flora.
When it gets out a little out of wack that's when we see the ugly part of things.
Like going home. It's a big transition for them.
I've recently learned about a new product that I think might help a bit.
It was listed on Johnny Depp's breeder's website.
You give 1 mL every 8 hours and boy do things really start to firm up.
It's something that should be kept on hand in times of stress....
such as de-wormings, vaccinations, boarding, transitioning to new homes, etc.
Click on the picture and you can order it right from Chewy.com
I'm always learning something new each and every day.
I've always kept canned pumpkin in my cupboard for cases of constipation and diarrhea.
But sometimes it seems like you need something more to get things firmed up.
I've recently learned about another product where I purchase my NeoPar vaccinations, needles, and syringes, from, etc.
I'll let you know my thoughts on that product when I give it a whirl for cases of diarrhea.

My vet had a cancellation and Yeti was neutered July 15th.
He will go to his new home on August 1st.
The time has come.
Yeti is set to be neutered and retired on August 5th.
This one will be especially difficult.
But no matter what, I know it's always the right decision to make as a breeder.
I could live in the middle of nowhere and it's not really fair to keep them all, especially when they can go on to have a such an impact on another person or family.
Yeti's been a great dog in our lives but I want him to be the center of attention in someone else's
I will be searching for his next chapter - the perfect retirement home.
It's not often one of our puppies flys home.
The reason being is we are unable to ship our puppies sight unseen via ground or puppy nanny.
We don't make the rules.
That's the guidelines set forth by the USDA if you own more than 4 intact female animals.
A buyer has to come to us for pick up in person and then can fly their puppy home in cabin.
Well this was definitely a first.
One of Phoenix's Frenchton pups, Johnny Depp, got to fly home in style on a private jet.
As he should with a nickname like that. :)
Enjoy your new life in Minnesota Bogey!
Justice for Johnny Litter
Were you there?
Grace (Phoenix's Frenchton) welcomed 8 puppies on April 28th, 2022.
These puppies are 25% French Bulldog and 75% Boston Terrier.
Named after the Johnny Depp trial we have:
Were you there?
As breeders, we make the difficult decision to rehome our retired adult dogs.
We'd love to keep them forever, but it is truly in the best interest of our dogs to go on to equally loving homes so they can be the center of attention with a new person or family. Our dogs are our family first and foremost in our breeding programs and we want nothing less than that for their next chapter. We understand how challenging a puppy can be and that is why it can be the most perfect situation for a family to take an already housebroken adult dog. There is of course an adjustment period for them to become bonded to their routine. Patience and understanding is key.
Currently we have made the decision with 2 of our dogs.
Molly and Hedwig.
Molly is a lovable French Bulldog from our Phoenix's Frenchton line and Hedwig is a sweet Boston girl from the MZBT program.
I am extremely selective in finding the absolute best homes for our retired family members.
If interested in either of these girls, please send me a message or refer to the "Retired" tab for more info.
Molly will be placed first.
4/3 Update: Thank you Kayla and Family for welcoming Molly into your home.
She will reside on an acreage north of Sioux Falls.
4/9 Update: Thank you Beej, Liz and Finch (Boston Terrier) for welcoming Hedwig into your family.
She will reside in Minnesota.
Got home and Amazon was just leaving.
Odd, as I haven't ordered anything.
Found a box addressed to Tammy and Yeti...
I just knew who sent it when I opened it.
We are post op day 4 now and he's doing so good.
He's up and down the stairs, off and on the couch, chair, bed, and outside bench.
This doesn't phase him one bit.
VIEWER DISRECTION ADVISED!
Yeti's Enucleation Post Op Day 1
He HATES the cone, this is going to be an interesting 2 weeks.
I asked if this could have been due to glaucoma.
This is what the Vet said:
"Suspect stromal abscess or corneal injury that lead to uveitis (low intraocular pressure and inflammation to the eye).
Uveitis can lead to glaucoma, but he did not have glaucoma yet. Eye looked as though it had perforated by the time we went to surgery."
The good news is they had an ophthalmologist in their pocket to consult with too.
This was absolutely the right call to make.
Yeti had to have surgery today to remove an eye.
I had taken him to my Vet on Thursday.
But unfortunately it continue to get worse over the weekend.
I took him to another vet today and I decided it would be best to have it removed, it did not appear it could be salvaged.
A dream come true.
Echo in pj’s with a huge family Christmas gathering!
The BEST families always find me and I couldn’t be happier for her.
Thanks Angela and Casey.
You truly are the best.
This girl was a tough one for me but it would be incredibly selfish for me to keep them all.
I really enjoy raising puppies.
My retired dogs truly deserve the next chapter in their lives with an equally wonderful family.
