Happy New Year!
January 5, 2017
...are so beautiful and getting big! These little chunky babes are starting to get around their bed a little better each day. All of the puppies are over 1 lb now! Their eyes and ears are opening and we are loving them to pieces. Each puppy is so unique, but all especially huggable and lovable. Check out their updated pics on the "Puppies" page....Will continue to keep you updated on their progress. For more frequent photo updates, check us out on FaceBook (Autumn Lane Labradoodles)! Thanks for following along!
Aside from family and good friends...We are so thankful for the blessing of these beautiful puppies! Since the beginning of this journey, we could have only dreamed of the wonderful, warm and funny personalities each of these puppies would possess. As the time draws closer for them to go to their forever homes, I am taking snapshots in my mind of the extra love and hugs, the extra 15 minutes of holding at bedtime just because a baby needed it; puppy kisses and individual time together, when I get to see the puppy for who they are. Each of these puppies has a confident spunk; an eagerness to learn and a loving nature. I am blessed to be a part of this process and to be able to love and be loved by this beautiful group of babies. Happy Thanksgiving!....And thank you for following the blog!
Claire's Beautiful Babies have gone to their forever homes...
Claire's pregnancy has been confirmed via sonogram! We are SO excited. No firm numbers yet, but as we get closer to the due date, which should be the 1st week in October, we will have a better idea of what to expect. Claire is doing awesome, and of course, being spoiled by all of us (smile). Thank you for following and stay tuned for updates!
Big News for Claire!
September 5, 2015
Hooray! It was a long and scenic drive, but well worth the distance! After a visit to the reproductive vet in PA, we were on our way to meet the famous Orion... So exciting! Professional and gentle; handsome (and with really great hair), Orion is a stunning boy! This breeding, in the shady warmth of Diane's (of Delaware Valley Labradoodles) backyard, was calm and uneventful (well, it was "eventful"...you get what I am saying :)). It was a great experience for a first breeding. I don't think I could have asked for a better experience. Diane is fabulous and full of a wealth of information that I have already begun to utilize...Fingers and paws crossed for the "magic" that hopefully yields beautiful babes in early October...Will talk soon..Thanks for viewing!
Claire and Orion have honeymooned!
August 8, 2015
Our wonderful Claire has come into season! Although this journey is still new, this is such an exciting time for us! Claire is a wonderful dog! Energetic, smart and affectionate...such an awesome and precious girl! She is planned for breeding with Delaware Valley's Orion. Stay tuned!

Claire has come into season....!
We are so super excited to have confirmed Claire's pregnancy today! We can't wait to see these chocolate cuties! Of course, we are keeping Mommy Claire happy and well fed. Hopeful for healthy puppies in mid June! Will keep you posted!

Our beautiful girl Claire is in season! So, we are looking to set up a honeymoon with her former beau, Delaware Valley's Orion, but sometimes Mother Nature has other plans for us. Stay tuned to updates and more information on this prospective breeding? Thanks for following!
A Litter of Love...
August 27, 2016
So, it was an awesome weekend for a honeymoon...But our plan for a breeding with Orion was not meant to be this time. However, this breeding was just as nice with Eden Valley's Guinness Stout. Claire and Guinness were amazing together! We are hoping for beautiful babes late spring! We'll keep you posted! Thanks for following!
They'e here and they are beautiful! Claire has done it again; blessed us with beautiful babies in colors of chocolate and caramel. This was an all-nighter, with the first chocolate girl born at 245AM and the last chocolate boy born at 659AM. What a beautiful sunrise it was yesterday, and we got to watch it as we brought these precious puppies into the world. As wonderful as it is to bring life into the world, it never strays far from my mind that this IS bringing life into the world...I continually find myself humbled at this process and grateful to the other breeders, such as Pam McCarl or Eden Valley and Diane Rocker of Delaware Valley Labradoodles, whose knowledge and support is immense. Let me also say that I am grateful for the opportunity to have such wonderful dogs, who have blessed me and others with wonderful new family members. Thank you for following!

Happy Birthday, Beautiful Babes!
In compliance with ALAA, we register our puppy litters. In doing so, each of our puppies is assigned a name with our breeder prefix....We have decided to do something a little different, and I think, a little fun, with Delillah and Guinness' litter. We are identifying them by their registered name, in addition to their collar colors, on their 6 week pictures. These are the names we assigned at birth and will be on their ALAA registration certificate. However, as with Claire's puppies, we love learning what their new call names will be when they go to their forever homes! And if our families ever decide to register with ALAA, we encourage updating the names to the puppy's final call name....For us, the most effective way to get their attention is still saying: "Puppy, puppy, puppy!"....Thanks for following!!!
It's All In The Name....

...for capturing this spectacular photo of Claire's boy, Hudson....Hudson, is an amazing boy, with great energy and personality! His parents have ensured that this handsome hunk of a guy has developed to his fullest potential...Thank you and Congratulations, Brian and Laura! We are in love with your boy (still) as well as this awesome photo! You can check out more of Jim Tisman's wonderful work at http://www.jefftismanphotography.com/.
Delilah Rose has honeymooned with Eden Valley's Guinness! Guinness is a stunningly handsome boy; looks just like a big teddy bear. He is a gentleman and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to use him with my girl, Lilah (Thank you, Pam!). Both Lilah and Guinness carry at least one parti gene, so it would be awesome if we ended up with some parti puppies! Will keep you updated and we look to confirm Delilah's pregnancy in December.
Babies are here!!!
Delilah Rose; then and now
Claire's chocolate/caramel cuties have all gone to wonderful forever homes, with the exception of our Emory, who will soon join her new family. Such a blessing that our beautiful puppies have gone to such loving homes. As I reflect on this litter, with its trials and joys, I am again humbled by the maternal nature of my girls, as well as my own maternal instinct; which chimes in with my puppies as well. I am grateful for the blessings and challenges that come with the work of breeding and rearing pups...And I am extremely appreciative of all of the families and prospective clients that consider Autumn Lane Doodles for their newest family member. Thank you for following....
Type your paragraph here.
These babies are beautiful! In her usual fashion, Claire is the devoted mama, spending much of the day with her babies, nursing and tending to their needs. They are growing so quickly and getting cuter by the day! So grateful and humbled for the blessing of these babies, as well as Claire. Stay tuned, we will be updating the site with their 2 week old photos soon! Thanks for following us.

5 Guys and a Little Lady
June 17, 2016
Boy! Time gets away from you when you are enjoying puppies! This week has been quite eventful for Claire and Orion's puppies. We have started going potty and playing outside; we have started eating solid food, and we have started crate training, just to name a few things! With all of these changes and challenges, these puppies have risen to the occasion. They are a delightful bunch with affectionate and warm souls. As I watch them continue to learn and grow, I am beginning to appreciate their individual personalities and will continue to nurture each puppy until they are off to their forever homes. Thank you fo following along with us! Please also check us out on Facebook as well for additional pictures and videos.

So, puppies are now 4 weeks old! They are up and about, eating raw ground beef and drinking water. We have started them in a potty box and they have done awesome! We have even introduced them briefly to the rest of the pack, as Claire has allowed it. Like Claire, these babies are smart and easily adjust to changes. We even moved them from the upstairs bedroom to a more independent space on our first floor. This is where their playpen will be. These are beautiful babies that we know will blossom into wonderful family companions. 'Could eat them up!. Check out their updated pictures on the "Puppies" page! More to come. Thanks for following!

Honeymoon for babes in June!
Happy New Year to all! We haven't blogged in a bit, but we have certainly been busy! Our Fall breedings with Claire and Orion and Delilah and Schoggi have yielded us 5 bouncing baby boys and a beautiful princess. We delivered babies all day yesterday...Not what was expected but we were delighted none the less. As we begin the new year with our newest Autumn Lane bundles of joy, we are humbled and excited for the future. We are blessed to have supportive family, friends, and clients and we are continuously amazed by our wonderful dogs and puppies. We thank you for continuing to follow along with us! Please see our newest stars under the "Puppies" page!
What are we Thankful for....
OMG! Delilah and Guinness' beautiful pups are growing up so fast! We are now fast forward...They are in their new puppy pen, eating puppy gruel (puppy milk, water, softened puppy food, yogurt and raw ground beef)...YUM! Their teeth are coming in. Each puppy is playful and affectionate...and we are absolutely loving them to pieces. Check out the babes new pictures on their puppy page. They are growing so nicely. The girls are becoming so beautiful; and my little guys....what can I say? Too handsome! Thank you for following!

No Tricks, Just Treats!....
What a wonderful beginning to the Christmas holiday! We confirmed our Lilah's pregnancy this morning. No firm numbers at this time, but it was awesome to see tiny "puppy buds". Will get an x-ray for head count in January. Puppies should be due in late January. So excited to see her beautiful babes! Will keep you posted. Happy Holidays to all!
...we await the birth of Claire's puppies. We can't wait to see their sweet faces!....Claire is doing great! Of course, she is being treated like the princess that she is...Eating well, getting plenty of rest, and lots of belly rubs (she LOVES having her belly rubbed). With just days left in her pregnancy, it is amazing to see how her little belly grows a little bit more each day. We will be sure to keep you updated! Keep watching and Thank you for following our blog!
We are having such a good time raising Claire and Orion's puppies and watching them grow! Their eyes are open and they are on the move. We have started exposing them to new environments (inside our home) as well as different forms of stimuli. We have also started teaching the puppies to "go potty" on puppy pads (and not in the bed where they sleep). They are doing quite well with this. We do all of this to get the puppies prepared for the world they will encounter beyond their puppy room. Claire continues to nurture them as well. She is such a good mommy. When I think back to Claire at this age, it makes me smile...Time is flying! It's been so fun watching each of the puppies progress so far. All of the puppies are over 2lbs now and a few are even up to 3lbs right now! We will continue to keep you updated on their progress. Be sure to check the "Available Puppies" page...we have posted new pictures of these precious babes! Thank you for keeping up with us!
And the Autumn Lane Doodle Name is......
March 6, 2016
Ok, so when our Delilah Rose was younger, I thought it was sweet to put flowers (roses) in her hair for pictures to trendy up her name. We don't do it so much anymore....While my Lilah is a "lady", she is incredibly active; running and playing when she is outside. The roses take a back seat to her active nature....However, when Delilah gave birth to her 3 girls, I thought, "Wouldn't it be cute to start a tradition with her girls?" I will put flowers in their hair for their formal pictures (See pics under "Puppies")....I will say the pictures are a treat to view, but Lilah's girls are much like her....keeping them with ribbons and flowers in their hair for pictures was quite a task!
It was a beautiful weekend for a honeymoon!

'Tis the season for Lilah puppies!
So, we haven't "blogged" in a while, although there has been much to talk about! As usual, we are love with Claire and Delilah's puppies! As their personalities begin to blossom more, it's exciting to watch them play and learn new things. Each puppy is so unique; they are affectionate and funny...They are now eating softened kibble and drinking water, with supplemental nursing from Mom. They are using the potty box with pretty good accuracy and last night they slept in their crate through the night! We are also allowing them to interface with the "pack" in small doses.Such good babies! We will continue to work with the pups, exposing them to as much as we can. We are definitely excited to witness their continued progress. Talk soon!
Growing Up So Fast....

Guess who is in season?!

Blizzard Babies for sure!
What an awesome blessing! Claire delivered 5 beautiful babies on the night of October 4th, into the wee hours of the morning of October 5th.This birth could not have gone better. Claire's "mommy" instincts kicked in right away and she is doing a wonderful job caring for her babes. She and Orion have produced 4 handsome boys (2 caramel and 2 chocolate) and 1 gorgeous caramel girl. Puppies weighed in at 4.5 to 6.9oz. Mom and babies are doing great! Here is just a glimpse of Autumn Lanes newest stars! Enjoy and continue to watch for more photos to come!
My Lilah! All belly now...The wait should not be long now. And it looks like we may be delivering these babes in the thick of the storm. We will keep you updated! Thanks for following!
Loveable Lilah has come into season! Delilah is a delightful, funny and smart girl who loves her people. She is a nice medium size girl... just perfect for snuggling with. Delilah is planned to honeymoon with Eden Valley Labradoodle's Guinness. This is an awesome pairing! Both Labradoodles bring awesome health testing, as well as loving and energetic personalities to the table. We look forward to these wonderful attributes being passed to the puppies they produce. Stay tuned! This reservation list will open once we confirm pregnancy.
Claire and Guinness' pups are now 6 weeks old! And what a time we are having! The summer has been good to us. Lots of sun and not too much rain...It's been super hot outside! We have been able to go outside and enjoy the big backyard, swim and play with the big dogs, mostly in the evenings when it cools off a bit. The puppies have their teeth now (boy do they have their teeth!) and are eating softened dog food. Puppies have started crate training at night, with some accidents, but this is to be expected....We expect less accidents as they get more used to this nighttime routine. They are doing very well with using the potty box and going to the bathroom outside during the day. Claire is weaning and only nursing mainly in the morning and right before pups go to bed. We are so proud of how far these puppies have come. Each so lovable, smart and affectionate. Their personalities are starting to shine; from my quiet pink girl who loves to be a part of the action, to my independent "go-getter" blue boy, who jumps at the chance to try something new.
As for our naming custom, these Autumn Lane babies are named as follows:
Pink Girl/Madelin Allyn; Red Boy/Maxwell; Purple Girl/Emory Laine; Blue Boy/Jackson; Yellow Boy/Phoenix and Green Boy/Augustus.
With much anticipation...
Delilah's Christmas Gifts...

So, in the middle of the blizzard of 2016, we are delivering puppies. Delilah really was a trooper. She did an awesome job, and we were so grateful for the 6 beautiful puppies she had given us...But wait, just when we thought it was all done...we weren't...We got a blizzard bonus! Another beautiful girl (a parti at that) and a boy. So, we have added 8 to our Autumn Lane Doodle Family. A beautiful mix of colors, Delilah gave us 5 boys and 3 girls. Please check out these precious babes on Lilah's page under "Puppies". Thank you for following!

Claire and Orion's beautiful puppies have left for their forever homes. I cannot explain the tremendous joy I have in my heart right now knowing that they have each found such loving families. We have loved these puppies since they were just an idea and we will continue to love them throughout their lives. Buddy (Royal Blue Boy), Hudson (Green Boy), Buster (Red Boy) and Tace (White Boy), we will miss you!
