When we are asked, “Are Essential Oils Safe for Cats?” We answer “Please use a Hydrosol because Cats metabolize Essential Oils differently.” Since we started our ‘Essential Oils for Dogs’ series we have been asked, by our Wisteria Goldens Families who also have cats, about this. We started investigating. After doing some digging we discovered the online resources […]

More Than Music Therapy for Dogs is a discussion about holistically approaching anxiety or stress for dogs. There are times when we anticipate our dogs may be stressed or anxious. A thunderstorm or unusual sounds (fireworks for example) are often not common enough to effectively socialize during our socialization routines. We often use essential oils […]
Piper's puppies are growing fast and can't believe they are already three weeks old. We've posted their pictures, along with a short video showing them on their wobbly legs. We introduced toys a few days ago, as they are starting to walk around and explore their surroundings. You can see new pictures and video here.
We had another colt a couple of weeks ago. A pretty paint filly. We love her markings and can't wait to see what color she is going to end up having. Her parents are Star and Thunder, so working on a name that fits well for her.
My little girl Gabby is so different from raising a Golden. She is willful, stubborn, smart, and so much fun with her bouncy, clown personality. We've had Border Collies (that Billy trains to help work the cows) and Golden Retrievers, so she definitely is a new experience for us. I let her out the other day in the backyard (it had rained that morning) and within a few minutes she was covered and soaked to the skin in mud. Not sure where she found it as our other dogs only had dirty paws. All we could do was laugh because she was SO happy and definitely needed a bath.
The holidays are coming fast and going to be a busier time than usual with me not being much help. We have been interviewing for a new member of our team this last week in order to get additional support before having our litters arrive in November. We have another interview this weekend and plan on having a decision by next week. Once we have this new person, along with Barbs, and a few family members and friends, we will have everything in place for the next few months.
I want to extend my apologies for anyone that is/was offended by my sharing of my health challenges this year. Many of you have written, texted, sent cards, and called with prayers and support during this time. These have meant so much that I have no words to express how much they have been appreciated. However, I received a note last week from someone that wanted to let me know my sharing of my health challenges (as well as any other “unhappy” happenings was inappropriate, unprofessional, and that others of you probably felt this way, yet would not let me know. They felt the newsletter should only contain happy, inspirational, and fun information.
The reason we started the newsletter was to help to keep families informed of what is happening here at the ranch, sharing training, health tips etc, puppy information, and giving families an opportunity to “get to know us” to see if we were the right fit for them in getting a new furry family member.
When we don't send out newsletters, we receive an abundance of emails and calls asking if everything here is ok, which is still surprising after all these years, and shows how much we are connected to our Wisteria Goldens family members. Our intention in sharing my health challenges this year was/is to let everyone know why we are not responding quickly to emails, calls, and why a newsletter is not being received. We also felt it was important to let everyone know why we had 12 puppies and then only 6 from our current litter.
While we do share only good things 98% of the time, let's be realistic, life here at the ranch is not all roses, sometimes there are thorns. It feels deceptive and unauthentic to write a weekly newsletter and “act” like everything here is happy and good, when there are a few challenges going on.
We say this with much love and respect — if you enjoy the newsletter, we appreciate and love you staying connected. If you don't, we always provide an “unsubscribe” button at the bottom that you can use. 🙂
Until next time,
Billy and Debbie

Puppies are most easily house trained when we take the lead, prevent accidents (by close observation and limited roaming), and praise for positive behaviors. The most common error, in house training, is the belief a punishment for accidents is effective. The truth is a puppy lives in the present moment all of the time. He […]
