Scout Goes to South Dakota

April 5, 2024

IMG 3324 3

Update - Scout is sold

Aiden and Tatum had a little “mini spring break” last weekend so we decided to load up and head for the Hills. The Black Hills of South Dakota that is and we took this little stinker along for fun. Meet Scout.

IMG 3314

It was a long drive over to the hills, but Scout slept through it just fine.

IMG 3231

On the way over we stopped at Devil’s Tower, right at sunset, it made for some lovely photos.

IMG 3242

We went to Mount Rushmore, everyone was wishing they were smart like Tatum and wore sunglasses. 

IMG 3259

One of my favorite spots in the Hills is Prairie Berry Winery. 10/10 recommend.

IMG 3289

Crazy Horse Monument.

IMG 3279

Coffee from the Wandering Bison in Hot Springs, SD. Scout went everywhere with us, met lots of people, hiked in the hills and was pure joy to have along!

IMG 3281

The best part of visiting South Dakota is seeing Aunt Kathy! Thanks for the visit and we love you! 


Next trip will be to visit Addie in Texas. If you know anyone looking for a pup that would be interested in meeting me in Texas or along the way please shoot them my info! It sure is nice to help people get their pup and save them miles too!

Update - Scout is sold

Scout - blue merle male out of Red and Buddy, born 12-14-23, ready to go. Both of the blue males of this litter of very small, and he is the smallest and I’m guessing he will be around/under 13” and 15lbs. Two blue eyes and perfect markings. $1350

Scout took a road trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota on the family spring break. He rides in the car very well, will wait in the car with out destroying everything (he does cry like a baby), he follows you everywhere and is really good about meeting people. If you want a tiny dog that you can stick in your purse, or under your arm and go everywhere, he is the kid for you. He is almost 4 months old, staying around 10lbs so far, and looks like he has about grown into his feet. He is going to be a little guy. Call or text me for videos. Thank you! Erin 307-254-3968

IMG 6163

When Josh and I got married he wanted Labradors. 

IMG 7836

Since so many people in my area raise Labs, I decided to go a little different direction and got my boy Thor, a Standard Poodle. 

IMG 8420

Updated 12/11/23

And we have the most beautiful litter of Labradoodles. 

"A cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle, the Labradoodle is a  friendly, loving family dog who's easy on the allergies makes Labradoodles one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States. These dogs love activity, just not as much as they’ll love you." Read more here. 

And this litter did not disappoint. They are goofy and loving and playful and oh so smart! Dad is a stand poodle and is tall and lanky and 40-50lbs. Mom is a black Lab and is short and stout and 40-50lbs. I expect puppies to fall in this size range.

These pups are easy to train, want to please and are going on to be very helpful for members of our community. 

These pups were born July 27 and are ready to go to their new homes! 

Labradoodle Wyoming 8650-(1)

Sold - Tex - black male, he has the fluffiest black coat, he is cuddly and very beautiful. His big, brown eyes will melt your heart. $250

IMG 0170

Sold - Buster - blue merle male, Buster wags his tail all the time! He has the cutest curly-haired ears and is sooooo fluffy! $250

IMG 9994

Sold - Jet went to to be a service dog for a girl who suffers severe pain resulting from a TBI. 

Jet has the smoothest coat of the litter, but possibly the biggest personality. He is fast and sassy and playful, but oh he loves his bath! When the hot water jets hit him he just melts! $250

Labradoodle Wyoming 8794

Sold - Belle went to a young couple who just moved into their first home and struggle with allergies. 

The three girls in this litter are a bit more shy than their brothers. Belle has the fluffiest coat of the girls, she is in the middle personality wise and is about as cute as a button. $250

Labradoodle Wyoming 8715-(2)

Sold - Rosé went to be a companion fro a woman who was going into surgery and would need a companion to recover with her.  

 Rosé is the most outgoing of the girls. She is a character and is prone to getting herself into predicaments, (like falling in the stock tank.) She is medium fluffy and has a very beautiful merle pattern coat. $250

IMG 7936

Sold - Teddy - is going to be a service dog for a military veteran who suffers from PTSD and allergies.  

Teddy is so loving! He is always giving kisses, to people, to his brothers and sisters, to the ungrateful cat. Teddy just loves love. He is the king of the puppy head tilt and is always giving me quizzical looks. He is ready for his new home. $250

If you are interested in any of these beautiful puppies please call or text Erin at 307-254-3968. All puppies will have age-appropriate vaccinations.

Away in a Manger

December 15, 2021

IMG 2610


Screen Shot 2021-12-15 at 10.28.24 AM

Every Christmas I love to watch this youtube video and every year I think I need to do something like this with puppies. Every year Christmas sneaks up on me… and every year I don’t get it done. But here is a quick, cute attempt.

PS go watch this video, its adorable!

IMG 2713

Carol and Kaycee would be cast as Mary and Joseph, they are both calm, serene,  quietly watching and pondering.

IMG 2748

Holly would be the Baby Jesus because -  she is just perfect and cute and does a lot of sleeping. 

IMG 2734

Walker and Rip would be the shepherds, it doesn’t take a whole host of heavenly angels to make these boys tremble in fear. 

IMG 2556

Oakley would be a camel, only because when she waddled up to me yesterday and I picked her up her tummy was so full it felt like a water balloon. Also I really like camels and I really like Oakley!

IMG 2535

Tuck would be the little drummer boy, he’s little, doesn’t have a lot to give, but my goodness he’s going to give it his all! He'll rum-pa-pa-pum his little heart out for you! 

IMG 2503

Cinch would be an angel, not one of those serene, quiet, dressed in white kind of angels, but a Glory to God kind of Angel! 

IMG 2248

And Chonk, well Chonk would be the Angel Gabriel himself! Bringing good tidings of great Joy! With absolutely no fear whatsoever! 

IMG 2652

Thank you so much for swinging by the Barnyard and visiting my impromptu Nativity Scene. 

You can see the available mini aussies here

And available Texas Heelers here

Do you like my puppy proof (so far knock on wood) Christmas Tree? Monster Kitty is not impressed! 

Merry Christmas everyone if I don’t visit with you before then!

Freya’s 4th of July Litter

August 31, 2021

I took Freya’s pups down to the park again today. It's funny how each of their personalities come out so quick on these little adventures. 

IMG 0681

Mia continues to be the A#1 recall expert and is the first to come every time I call the pups back to me. 

IMG 0684

The look you make when you are the goodest good dog that every good dogged. Mia is Sold.

IMG 0675

Shyla kept up her reputation as being the shy, awkward one. Somehow I feel like I relate to her on a personal level. 

IMG 0694-2

Shyla’s awkwardness is explained. My vet and I both suspected she had hearing limitations, but she acts like she can hear some noises. The BAER hearing test confirmed this fact. Shyla is available.

IMG 0688-3

Violet is pretty and feminine and dainty. Her eyes catch the light and sparkle in the sun.

IMG 0708

I did try to explain to her that it isn’t very lady like to eat the flowers, however. Violet is available.

IMG 0705

Chief is sold. Chief loves to lay flat out on his belly and nap during these excursions.  

IMG 0733

Yep, that’s Chief, he’s a little lazy.

IMG 0695

Ice is sold. Ice loves to hunt and is constantly learning about the world around her. She doesn’t hardly stop moving and is checking everything out. Not hyper, just sniffing and looking and moving. 

IMG 0742

Until she crashes. 

IMG 0737

Toward the end of our trip I got these photos, they kind of perfectly sum up this fun bunch of puppies. Chief is laying on his belly, Shyla is awkwardly laying down, but not napping, Mia is sitting near me paying attention, and Violet is sleeping in a mound of flowers. 

IMG 0738

And then Ice comes sniffing through.

Josh likes to show people pictures on my web page. 


He wanted to show off this picture of Ribbon the other day and was disappointed it was not on my web page. 

Ribbon Puppy pics

Ribbon is a Riggin by Riley puppy that we kept from this last litter. She is beautiful and smart and just LOVES water (like her mom!) She really wants to grow up to be a cow dog.


This is Josh’s dog Ducky and Ribbon. The photo really doesn’t do either one of them justice, but you know, group shots, they are hard to get.


I wanted to include some puppy photos of Ducky, because man, she’s just so cute!


She’s not much of a cuddle bug, but occasionally you can get a snuggle.


Usually she likes to sprawl out on the ground like she’s broken.


Here is Maggie, Ducky and Birdie. 


This blog post wouldn’t be complete without a picture of Josh’s cat Angus.


And a picture when he was just a cute little hoodlum. 


While I’m introducing everyone, this is Josey and Jack, Addie’s healer dogs. 


And, well, if I’m doing a blog post of pictures that Josh might want to show off, I’m going to include this picture of the white tail buck I got last fall.


I love you darling! 

I have a mini aussie pup available now. Check her out.

And don’t forget about Finn!

Theres a couple horse, calves and goats available now too!

Thank you all for stopping by the Barnyard! Swing on through any time! 

<< Next Freyas Puppies ^^ Back to the Top ^^  Prev. - Finn  >>

Subscribe to RSS feed 



Update! Finn has found his forever home living with his brother from another litter! 


This is Finn, he was born in February. He is deaf. 


He was sold as an 8-week-old puppy, but when we found out he needed a minor eye surgery his owner returned him to me.  And I have been enjoying him ever since! 


I took Finn to the vet to get his entropic eye treated, coincidentally, Poppy the pony had the same condition, so I loaded them both on my lap to go see the Doc. 

Both are recovered and all better! 


I’ve been taking Finn to work with me, we are building fence up on the Pryors. He loves it! 


He rides in the excavator with Matt, but he always has his eyes on me.


Except when it’s nap time of course.


He is great help on the ranch as well! He does great with other dogs, and cats, goats, horses and cows, he doesn’t wander off, is super chill, loves to cuddle and is absolutely the happiest guy you will ever meet. He loves people!

He is started potty training, but since I’ve been irrigating (and he’s usually quite helpful with that - MUDDY!) he’s been staying outside.

He sleeps through the night occasionally waking you up for a potty break, but trust me, this kid is a sound sleeper! 


He is learning hand signals, we have started on come, good boy, no! and sit. He also is very aware what a kiss and hug are.  Those are his favorite.

He has the absolute best personality! 

He’s got all his first year shots and he is ready for his new home! $1250

Fergus x Jewell

I’ll be announcing my next litter of Mini Aussies right after the 4th of July weekend! Be sure to get on my email list so that you can know when I post them!
