Isla and Ty - 9 pups (6 males, 3 females) born January 9, 2018.

Setherwood Isla

Isla is from the same general line as Geneva but is smaller and more compact. She finished her show championship in August of 2017 (click HERE for details). She is happy and outgoing. As her mate Ty is quite dark in colour, we expect to get a good range of gold in this litter.

Isla has clearances for hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, detectable heart defects and eye cataracts. Please click HERE for her pedigree. 

Ch Meliagolds Merci For Being You "Ty"

Ty is a mid-sized boy with a beautiful head and expression. His coat is dark gold, straight and easy-care. His nature is confident and outgoing - the perfect outlook on life. His pedigree contains some of the oldest Canadian and American lines. He and Isla produced beautiful healthy puppies last time and we expect them to do the same again.

Birthday - January 9, 2018.

Isla began contractions at about 2 am on January 9. The first pup was born at 2:36 am and the last at 7:40. Eight of the pups weighed close to 15 ounces at birth while the 9th weighed just 6 ounces. All were vigorous and nursed well. As of 3:30 pm on January 10, Isla and all 9 pups were doing well.

One week old - January 16, 2018.

Isla is doing a great job with her pups. Since she has 9 and Geneva has 11, we gave Isla the smallest pup from Geneva's litter (he is wearing a blue collar). Isla accepted him without problem and he seems to like the change as he is nursing more vigorously.

The smallest one from Isla's litter (we call him "Zoltan the Adequate") is being supplemented and is gaining well. When he is nursing, he hangs on very tightly to avoid being dislodged by the bigger pups.

So at present, all is well.

Zoltan - no need to tell him to get a grip!


Zoltan update - January 19, 2018

His birth weight was 6 ounces. Since then he has grown and developed and weighs 1 pound 1/2 ounce today. He is doing very well.


Zoltan - 16.5 ounces of solid muscle!
