And a Safe, Warm THANKSGIVING to Each of You & Your Families 
IN THIS ISSUE (with Grateful Thanksgiving Wishes Throughout!):
A. The Future of XANADU of the Rockies
B. Miss Chanda (say it with a hard "C," as in "Charles")
C. The Oops-Litter of F-1b Goldendoodles, & Contact Information for Puppy

A. While this newsletter is not our usual Pup Alert, it does have information about the "Oops" - Litter of gorgeous F1b Goldendoodle pups and about our Guardian Chanda. But first, let me wish each of you a warm, happy, safe Thanksgiving that if full of laughter and hugs all around.
XANADU of the Rockies will be restructuring and downsizing in the future, and I shall contact each Guardian about what that means for his / her XANADU Guardian dog. What I have learned when considering the sale or partnership of XANADU is threefold.
1. XANADU needs me as a partner or consultant -- I just know too much! 2. XANADU has odd "assets," like 80-contracted breeding dogs and frozen semen. This means that partners or a new owner would have to purchase XANADU outright, rather than try to get a loan to purchase XANADU.
3. And in any case, downsizing is requisite. XANADU will continue with a very basic crew of Breeding Dogs in 2019 -- something that is manageable to me while I begin a new (ad)venture that can actually "support my
XANADU- habit" in the future.
What that means for potential pup-purchasers is that ALL litters in the future will be identified as XANADU Dogs; all available pups will be unique and breedings will not be repeated. If you want a XANADU Dog and fall in love with a pup, buy it. There won't be another litter like it. You can be confident and decisive, because XANADU guarantees still stand regarding temperament and health. You are still guaranteed to love your pup; your pup is guaranteed to love you back. (See attached information regarding "Deposits & Refunds.") 
B. AVAILABLE YOUNG ADULT F1b GOBERIAN, CHANDA means "Shining Moon in Hindi." Miss Chanda is out of tri-color Cafe' Ole' and sired by Elvis Jr., (perfect red American Golden Retriever whose dad, Elvis Sr., died at age 17). Both Elvis Jr. and Chanda have perfect, that is, "no known genetic issues" reports from Cornell University's Embark genetic testing which identifies 165 common genetic disorders (XANADU breeds for Temperament, Genetic Soundness, and Vet- Checked General Health as requisite foundations of our breeding program). Chanda is basically an F1b XANADU Goberian, who carries blue eyes, tri-color, and the marvelous temperament we associate with the best of F1b XANADU Goberians and with Service Dogs in general. Her health is great, she doesn't bark (almost never), also typical of most of our Goberians.

I call Chanda, who was the largest in her litter and the calmest, my "incognito" dog, because carries all of the characteristics for which XANADU breeds. Well, she is a bit larger than our target size of about 40-lb. Chanda is 60 pounds, is up-to- date on core vaccines, Rabies, and rattlesnake vaccine, takes heartworm medicine monthly, is smart, attentive, fast afoot, and very sweet.
I hoped Miss Chanda could be both my Service Dog (something that the trainer at Cottonwood Kennels in CO assured me she could easily do after working with her for a month), and a breeding dog, because I needed the perfection of her lineage in XANADU'S breeding program. Depending on the stud chosen, Chanda's pups will be blue-eyed, hazel-eyed, or brown-eyed. ALL should be Polar-bear white or cream, wolf-or-Siberian Husky tri-color, or a possible lighter red with white markings on chest and paws. They'll be smart, genetically sound, gentle, and as good as it gets with XANADU Goberians.

Chanda's most outstanding characteristic is that she is everybody's mother: She was our Founder, Alice's companion and support until Alice died (Note photo). She played with and protected all of the little pups we had at XANADU this summer, and loved each baby to pieces just as soon as they arrived fresh from their own mothers. And as soon as Momma-Fyre was comfortable with another dog babysitter and playmate, Chanda took over mothering little Lobo.
Chanda will lick your feet (if you like that sort of thing) every evening. Because Service Dogs aren't supposed to lick, I don't let Chanda lick my hands or face -- or the hands and faces of the grandchildren who visited during the summer. Chanda loves kids.

Chanda is one-year old -- house-trained, attentive, loving, loves her toys and other pups, dogs, people, children; she is gorgeous, eye-liner eyed like Cleopatra, beautiful teeth (see photos), is a lower - shed dog, uses a doggie door, is trained to a Tri-Tronics remote collar, understands English and many hand signals, and she is absolutely ready and prepared to begin formal service training -- which usually begins at age one. (See additional attachments). Her Breeding Agreement will include a 7-pup litter, which is small-to-average for a 60-pound female. Elvis Jr. sired Zoe's current litter (Zoe' is 60 lb.) is a ten-puppy litter. Chanda cannot be sold without a Breeding Agreement; she's too good and XANADU needs her genetic lineage. But with a Breeding Agreement, she is only $1250 as a multi-purpose Guardian Female.

This is the OOPS! Litter. While Miss Scarlet has fulfilled her Breeding Agreement with XANADU, and while we have Mr. Chase's frozen semen banked, neither was "fixed" before Scarlet was in heat again. OOPS! This litter belongs to Anne and to Rita and in Los Angeles. BOTH parent dogs are XANADU'S best: Sweet, Smart, Genetics and General Vet-Checked Health over the top. And so, I am advertising this litter for my CA BFFs. Photos of parent dogs are on our xanadoodle.com
