Amber Rose (aka Rosalie)

Amber (Rosalie) is doing very well here in her new home. She is a very good girl and very well trained. Thank you for that! I took her to pick up my son at school and of course all the kids went crazy fo her. We took her to the back of the school field so she could run freely. She loved it - and something happened. There was a car coming in the parking lot and a small 5 year old child was just about to dart for the lot where the car was coming when Amber stopped him immediately circling around the boy and barking stopping the boy from going out into the street. All the moms were totally amazed!!!!!! I new right then she is special beyond what I ever imagined! Just sharing. Hope all is well!

God Bless,


Certainly, a job well done indeed!!! We do appreciate all you have done in training Amber, it makes the transition soo much easier too. She has been going potty outside since we got her and sleeping through the night. I hardly feel that she's a puppy at all she is so well behaved and just a delight to have. But, you do need to know you make a difference in people's lives.
Thank you again,

Scott Eyre (Phllies Pitcher) and family.

Maggie and Murphy on their way back from breakfast.
Hi Melissa,
Maggie has adjusted very well to life at our house, she enjoys playing with our other dogs and loves being outside! She is still making daily efforts to try and find a cat to play with her, but so far she is rejected everytime. She is feeling much more comfortable around our horses. I can take her out to the barn and she stays right in the barn area while I'm cleaning stalls or tacking up my horse. We take her out for breakfast on Sundays and a few other places that are dog friendly. We have received many compliments that she is such a well behaved puppy. She eats very well and has only had a few accidents since we got her and we really appreciate the crate training she received from you. I love not having to get up during the night to let her out. She will sit and lay down on command and has gotten much better about coming when we call her. She is a wonderful dog and we are so glad to have her!

Myrtle is doing really well, and sits, stays, comes, and lays down upon command. She has so far produced a lot of hair, and a beautiful mane. She is growing rapidly, and knows what she likes to eat, because we tried to give her chicken flavored, large breed pupy food. But she nearly refused to eat it, and showed her great dislike for it, for she didn't race for the food, but hung back and sniffed at it, at times, she wouldn't even finish it, so we switched her over to lamb and rice puppy food, now she enjoys her meals immensely, and will all but knock you over during mealtimes in her hast!! :) All in all she is doing fine, and enjoys playing fetch, and racing around the yard with the kids.

Hi Melissa,

I just wanted you to know that Olivia is doing great! She is such a good girl. She did great on the trip to VA and back. If my children are playing outside, she has to be right with them. Nadine's preschool teacher told me that she talks about Olivia a lot at school. Austin brought a picture of her in for show and tell to his kindergarten class. My husband recently dislocated his shoulder and Olivia has been right by his side!

We all love her so much and couldn't imagine life without her, as she is a part of our family!! Thanks for breeding such a wonderful dog!! Keep up the good work.

Did I awake you?

Ayiana (aka Hermione) is approaching 6 month and over 50 lb now. She's lost all the child teeth a couple of weeks ago and adult teeth are growing nicely. She is very active but also super friendly to everyone. She is my alarm clock, exercise partner and wonderful family member.

Noah (aka Dumbledore)

He is a joy to us. He is very good natured, intellegent and loving. In the month we have had him, Noah has learned a lot of langauge and grown a bit too. House breaking was a snap, but stopping the puppy biting routine is a bit more challenging. I know we will win out, as love conquers all. Keep up your breeding program, your pups help bring a lot of happines to the lives they touch, as we know 1st. hand.

Nella (aka Renee)

Nella is doing great. Attached are a few pics from spring and over the summer. We take her hiking with us in the state parks when we go. We took two 1-week trips over the summer and had to board her at the vet, but she seemed to adapt to that pretty well. She is done with her training classes, and is healthy overall. She sleeps at the foot of our bed, but is up about 10 times a night checking on the kids.

Molly is doing great. She's full of energy and a bit stubborn at the moment, but I think it's because she's like a 'teenager' right now. She is doing better and better on the leash. We recently got her a retractable leash and I think she really likes it. For certain parts of our walk I let her run around in a field by our house, and so for the rest of the walk when we are actually in a neighborhood, she does really well and doesn't pull. She is still such a sweet girl and she loves to lie on our little sofa with us at night while we watch TV. Most of the time she is so good and she never gets into things she's not supposed to. Yesterday morning I woke up and saw that she had removed over half the stuffing in the bed that's in her crate. I thought she had chewed through it, but she actually figured out how to not only unzip the cover, but also unzip the pillow inside!! Then she rearranged the stuffing inside her crate to make it more comfortable I guess! I'm going to send you some more pictures. By the way, in one of the pictures she's eating a "pup-cone" that we got from the 3 Dog Bakery, she loves going there. Just wanted to make sure you knew we weren't feeding her an actual ice cream cone, ha-ha.
Everything you did with her before we got her has helped so so much- especially the crate training. We still crate her at night and when we aren't home, and she seems to really like her crate. A lot of times when we are home, she chooses to go in there to sleep rather than other places around the house. And I'm pretty sure she hasn't had a single accident since I last talked to you. She barks quite persistently when she has to go out!!

Thanks for everything!

Leo (aka Jack)

Leo is doing great. We are constantly getting comments from people on how beautiful and well behaved he is. I can't thank you enough for all of the preliminary training that you did with him, but it definitely paid off. We go on several walks a day, and he does very well on a leash - although he stops in his tracks whenever he hears another dog barking. I think he is just scared, but it takes some coaxing to get him to keep going. As for the potty training, it has gone very well. He has had a couple of accidents in our garage, but nothing major, and both were probably my fault. He does great at staying in our yard, and he has a lot of fun playing with our 3 boys. He is great at fetching. I was amazed because the first day here, he would go get balls, bring them back and drop them consistently. Right now we are working on shaking hands and he is starting to get that as well. Once again, he is a wonderful dog and it has been a great first week. THANK YOU!!

Marley (aka Shirley)


She is a wonderful dog. Getting quite big now and yes she has not had any accidents and is sleeping without a crate as well. We are very pleased with Myrtle and yes that is still her name. The vet told us she is very healthy. We switched her dog food to a large puppy food as the vet says she needs to not grow too fast as she was on a high nutrition puppy food that was not specifically for the large breeds. She is doing alright on it but does not like the taste as well.

Allie (aka Allison)

2/3/09 "This is Allie a few weeks ago. She is a real sweetheart--even though she finds herself in mischief every once in a while. She will sit and shake hands and loves to go for rides in the car. Until recently the weather was not all that great and she didn't enjoy being cooped up in the house. Sunshine and exercise outside have made her a happy girl."
