Just wanted to give you a quick update on Odyssey and send some photos! He’s doing fantastic. Potty training is going really well. He can hold it for quite a while unless he drinks a bunch. He now sleeps through the night with no whining or accidents. We are working on some commands. He already knows "off", "sit", and "lay down." He’s a fast learner.
He’s been taking many trips to the dog park and has gone to puppy play time at Petco. He was timid at first but is starting to come out of his shell and run around with the other dogs. The children in our neighborhood come over almost daily to play with Odyssey and he’s great with them. Overall, he’s a sweet and fun little addition to our family, and we couldn’t be happier!

Wanda – first I want to tell you that Jester is a wonderful puppy, great to train, picks up very quickly.

His new name is Odyssey. He’s doing fantastic, still no accidents since the first hour I brought him home. He only got up twice last night. Tonight I’m shooting for once. He’s a smart little guy.
Little story; went to Pet Smart yesterday and from the front door through the store and then to the parking lot two or more people at a time would stop me and bear. I only let four people pet him, and the rest of the people I held him to greet them, and he loved them all and they loved him. people wanted to take picture, so i told them to go to your website and look for the available puppies left. Great job on the puppies

Just wanted to let you know how wonderful gable is. We changed his name to Leonardo (Leo).
He is absolutely perfect for us and we couldn’t love him more. He is such a good puppy and is constantly getting praised by whomever we run into at the park or on the street.
He is so willing to learn and the bigger he gets, the more he loves to cuddle!

Just wanted to share a couple more pictures and stories with you! Emma is still doing great… we have noticed she has become a lot more accustomed to her home and much more relaxed, of course still lots of puppy energy and playful. Last Friday Joe brought her in to visit my co-workers, who are all
dog lovers, and our social media team took pictures of her with some of our products and posted it on Facebook. She was the most popular post on Facebook that my company has ever had (I have attached this picture). We also took her to St. Cloud on Friday afternoon/night to meet Joe’s family and she met close to 20 new people. She was SO good I couldn’t believe it. Slept in the car all the way there and home and very
friendly to each and every person, even the one year old kids who are still learning how to pet dogs 🙂
Then my little sister came to visit on Saturday with her boyfriend. They wanted to go shopping at the Mall of America, but after meeting her decided they just wanted to spend more time with her than shopping! The other attached photo is my little sister with Emma, who also posted this on Facebook and
immediately had over 30 friends like the photo. Emma is definitely a popular little girl and is such a lover 🙂 Life was definitely good before, but she has been such a fun, vibrant addition to our family that now I can’t picture life without her! We love her very much.
Thanks again so much Wanda.

She is doing wonderful! We are giving her lots of love and she’s done very well with going potty outside. Only a couple small accidents. She seems to be warming up to our place and is so fun and playful! She even loves the bed we bought her and is already playing fetch. She has been very warm and loving to the people we’ve had come over and I’m looking into puppy training classes to sign her up for.
Thank you so much again for everything. She is a doll! Oh and she is very very smart! Has already learned so much in her day and a half here!

Everything is fantastic with Tonto! He’s so much fun to have around. He really likes running around the back yard and playing with our Chihuahua. They are both the same size (right now anyway) so they’ve been rolling around and playing like brothers.

All is very well! Tiki is a wonderful little girl. She’s just about completely potty trained already! We can’t believe how smart she is. She has learned a couple of commands and we are going to talk to a trainer this weekend. She is very much loved – that’s for sure. Our 2 year old calls Tiki her sweetie pie and loves her so much.
Thank you for checking in Wanda. I’ll try to keep in touch and send pictures when I can.
We love her very much. Thank you!

Just a quick note and updated photo of Frankie, my wonderful freckle-faced boy. Frank is my constant companion. He has such gentle, sweet ways and is a joy in every way. Training is coming along, his health is A1 and I think he has topped off growing at about 26#.
Thank you, again, for the wonderful work you do through your excellent breeding program. Gary and I sincerely appreciate all the background work you have done to produce such incredible puppies.
Have a very happy summer!

We just thought you might like to see some pictures of Chester growing. We love him so much and are so grateful to have him. He is a wonderful dog with a fun personality. He is very affectionate and not afraid of much. We finished puppy school with him in February, he did very well.
Hope you are doing well!

Here’s a few pictures of Hannah! She’s doing great! She and Mitzi could play all day long I think. We’re still working on the leash and potty training, but she’s getting it. We’re also working on some tricks. She can sit, shake and lay down. Very smart puppy! Thank you so much for another wonderful addition to our family, we couldn’t be happier. Best wishes as always!

Hello Wanda, just thought I would drop a quick note to say hello and to share a current photo of Toby with you.
We have been doing one year of agility training now and he really enjoys it. He had a check up in January and is in good health.
Toby really loves to run fast, chase balls, try to herd the squirrels in the backyard, and chew on his bones non-stop.
I always enjoy watching Toby play with another Aussie, they are like two peas in a pod.

Happy New Year, dear lady. Gary and I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and the 2012 brings you much peace of mind, happiness and good health. In addition, best wishes for another successful year of breeding and raising your gorgeous dogs! 🙂
Well, all about Frankie…
He is a remarkably bright little guy and, sincerely, the light of my days! His follow up with the Vet was this morning. I am pleased to report he is in perfect health! Yes, today he weighs 10.6#.
His trip to Arizona was incredible. Our flight there was with one stop over in CO. He did not make a peep on the first leg of the flight. In CO we pottied him and gave him a little exercise break. On the second leg of the flight, he was also silent. Just perfect.
My family LOVES him! He was everyone’s focus the entire week of Christmas. My 16 year old niece, Annie, who is a huge animal lover, actually said, "He is THE cutest dog I’ve ever seen." She is not an easy one with the compliments, so I was delighted at her observation. Mikey, my 18 year old nephew and Godson, wanted to keep him. Needless to say, Frank ate up all the love and attention.
Our trip home was direct. Frankie slept the entire 3 hours…not a peep. I’ve never had such an easy pup.
All is well and he is flourishing. I am attaching a photo on his beautiful little freckled-face that was taken on Christmas Day. He is even larger and cuter now, two and a half weeks later. 🙂

Hello Wanda, My name is Brynn and I got Cynder from you in 2010 and thought you might like to see some pics of her. She is an amazing dog and is very loved. My fiance has trained her to be quite the frisbee enthusiast. She has brought so much joy to us, our family, and friends.

Hi Wanda. Our new puppy is awesome !!!! We just wanted you to know how pleased we are with Knight (we renamed him Alto).
We are getting to know each other better and he is so smart! He is not totally potty trained yet – but the accidents are getting fewer. They often happen when I am not attentive to him. He is subtle. He destroys MUCH less than I anticipated (I know that could still change). I have tried some shaping training with him (new to me) and so far he can sit, stay, heel, come, and lay down! Super fun for both of us!
If you ever need to use me as a reference please feel free.

I wanted to give you a brief update on my sweet little "big" guy Bodee. He is a wonderful addition to our family. He has really taken to doggy daycare he is wonderful with a bath and blow dry and he really takes easy to being trained. I take him for a daily walk at York beach, ME and he loves running all over my fields here. Short story, as I was walking him at the beach yesterday I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen
for awhile. I introduced Bodee to him and my friend said Kim do you know what Bodee stands for? He said it means awaken heart from the Indians. For me hearing that and having bought Bodee makes perfect sense. I really feel as if my heart has been "awaken" since I met Bodee. Thanks again Wanda and Hope you have a wonderful New Years.

Happy New Year, Wanda! I thought that I’d drop you a quick note to let you know how well Bunny (now named Stella 🙂 is doing in our family. The kids were thrilled when we surprised them with the puppy on Christmas morning — completely shocked, and super excited!!
Stella is the best! She’s doing really well with house training, and she does a great job playing with the kids and other dogs that we’ve been around. She’s an impressive sleeper too — she hasn’t whined at night, and wakes once to go out. We’re so lucky!
We’re totally enamored with Stella, and she’s already an established part of our family. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of her, and helping by answering all of our questions over the last few weeks.
Hope you had a happy holiday!
