I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I wanted to share some pictures of (Solo) Roxzyn with you.
We are so blessed to have Roxzyn as part of out family! He is such a joy and everything I could ever hope for! He is so intelligent and always watching to see what we are going to do next and makes sure he does not miss ANYTHING!! We are working on his chewing which he thinks
everything other then his $60 worth of squeaky, chewy, fun, colorful toys is more fun to chew on ~ arms, hands, shoes, paper, ect. Were making progress ~
Roxzen is such a quick learned on other things as he already knowing what outside/potty means and runs right to the door and he will even go sit by the door and bark when he needs to go out J He will never miss a meal and is always looking for seconds. I put a medium size rock in his bowl to help slow his eating down.
With being so busy with the holidays we won’t start puppy classes until January and know Roxzyn will love them.
Thank you so much for the most precious little boy ever!

So good to hear from you! Timber is just an amazing pup! He has gone through 3 classes of obedience and picked up on the commands, tricks, etc quickly. Brian and Tiber will be starting beginning agility in January.
He loves to run but is very well behaved on a leash. He is still very cuddly and gets along well with kids in the neighborhood. He loves to sleep on top of our bed flat out on his back!
Timber and little half-brother Flynn (Mike and Lisa”s pup) get together and still play and wrestle despite their size differences. Timber is about 31 lbs and I think Flynn is about 13!
We’ve found a good no-cage doggie day care in Burnsville (Woof-Dah) where he has gone when we’ve flown out of state. He seems to enjoy it there and pulls on his leash to get inside when we arrive there.
How are you doing? I was just on your website last week looking at the new pups! Looks like you have been very busy with pups and shows.
Have a great holiday season and keep in touch!
Tyson is getting into the holiday spirit with his friend Murphy the elf!!
Have a great day!!
December 2, 2013
Hope you had a good thanksgiving! Finley has been amazing!! At 9 weeks he’s already house trained, and he knows how to sit, shake, and lay down. We couldn’t have asked for a better, more well behaved puppy than Finley.

Hi I just wanted to let you know how Nala is doing. She is doing wonderful. She is very sweet and loves to play. We have our first frisbee competition coming up in April. We are very excited. I attached a few pictures of her in action.
November 9, 2013
Just wanted to send you a hello! Schmidty (aka Spur) is doing great! He is learning all types of new tricks and really loves the outdoors! We are wondering what type of shampoo you used on him because we LOVED how he smelled when he first came home. I am attaching some pictures as well. 🙂 Thanks again!!

Happy Halloween Wanda,
Here is Beamer and the kids with the pumpkins they carved for Halloween.

Trigg is a great dog! He’s doing really well at his obedience and agility classes. His instructors comment on how smart he is.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROONEY !!
October 20, 2013
Just wanted to send you a picture of the Beam, he is doing well and has adjusted really well.
October 14, 2013
Everything is going great so far! Very few accidents in the house and he has been sleeping through the night with minimal whining or needing to go outside. I love him to pieces and could not be happier! I will keep you updated on his progress and will for sure email you if questions arise.
October 12, 2013
I just wanted you to know that Rebel is loved. He had a wonderful night. I must say i have never gotten a pet that has been this well trained. We love him. He brings us so much joy!
Murphy (a.k.a. Mojo)
October 6, 2013
I just wanted to send you an update on Mojo now known as Murphy. He is doing really great and is so smart. He does so well with other people and dogs. Thank you again for all that you do! We are going to be starting puppy obedience this next week and looking forward to seeing how he
does and then onto agility! Here are some of my favorite pictures of him thus far. He is growing so fast! Hoping things are going well for you and your family. Oh and I have already ran into a couple who had gotten an Aussie from you too!
Take care Wanda and God Bless!
September 30, 2013

Skip is loved.

Hello Wanda! Here’s a picture of Mara and Tyson after they earned a perfect 200 today at the state 4H show and were grand champions in obedience. We’re beyond thrilled and excited to have earned this today!!
August 27, 2013
Thought this would bring a smile to you today– he is truly her best friend!!!
August 27, 2013
Well, I don’t know if you will believe this, but he has not pottied in the house yet. Love his personality: outgoing, reserved with strangers, but willing to meet them. On agility equipment in back yard. Started with basic drop, sit stay, heel. Real willing. Recall will be great. He flies! Raised
teeter to 6 inches at fulcrum. No fear. But seriously, 5 a.m. on Saturday!!! and stayed up. He still occasionally cries in crate, but not bad. Has been to Home Depot. He did good. Work with Dremel on nails. No problem. Boy, I sound like a proud mommy. Sooo pathetic!! LOL Will keep you updated.
August 26, 2013
Good morning Wanda! Everything is going great so far. Tande is adjusting nicely, she hardly cried at all on the ride home yesterday. We had a full morning of playing in the yard already. Now it is nap time 🙂 I will send you some pictures I took of her this morning. Thanks for checking in!!
August 21, 2013
I think our lil smokey/roper is so amazing! He is smart, beautiful, bright and cuddly. Great temperament. He just came in and immediately started relaxing & acting as if he’s been here forever!
Rocky a.k.a. Broker
August 17, 2013
He checked out house immediately. He loves Sassy. They play well together. He potties outside. Little bit of crying last night-nothing serious. No submissive peeing. He is reall happy in house! I really like this personality. You nailed it right! Thanks!!
OK, now, this isn’t supposed to happen, but I took him to a friends house. She has two young children and a mini aussie. We were there for 4 hours, and if she had money she would be calling you about a puppy. He is just so confident and easy to be around. Good with kids and played with
other dog. It will be a breeze to train him.
August 7, 2013
Just wanted to let you know how great Paisley is doing. She is fully potty trained and is very smart and well behaved. We absolutely love her!
Thanks so much!
August 4, 2013
He is still the biggest love of our lives!
Fin (a.k.a. Zayla)
July 20, 2013
Hi Wanda! Just wanted to drop you a note and some photos of our wonderful puppy! Fin is growing fast and experiencing all sorts of adventures. We started obedience class and she is a star, very calm and focused. She’s been out on boats, around campfires, lots of kids, and some
baseball games. You were right, she is quite the attraction. Everywhere we go people ask about her, she is very outgoing and let’s everyone pet her. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
Chad, Kris, & Fin

Pepper (a.k.a. Keno)
June 14, 2013
Good Morning Wanda – I hope this finds you well. Pepper is doing great. She started her classes on Tuesday night and she was a star. The kids are doing a good job with their "homework." She is getting lots of love and I have to believe is very happy. Now that
Tom and the kids are home with her fulltime, she is wiped out and ready for sleep by the time I get home from work! I saw your pictures of the new puppies. Congratulations! Thank you ever so much again for our girl.
Take care, Michelle
May 29, 2013
Just wanted to send you a few pictures of Flynn! I can’t believe how fast he is growing, it’s amazing to look back on the photos we took when we first got him and compare them to now! He has been doing really well in his puppy training classes, he graduated from level
1 two weeks ago, and we just started intermediate last weekend. He is so smart, picks up on things very quickly! When we take him to classes on the weekends, he gets so much attention and everyone asks about him, and of course he loves all of the attention he gets!
I can’t thank you enough for Flynn. He instantly became a part of our family and we couldn’t be happier. We are having the time of our lives with him and he sure is having fun too!
Bill and Jes

Rooney after a full day.
Maya (a.k.a. Zodiac)
May 26, 2013
Everything is going great. We named her Maya. She is almost fully potty trained and she already knows how to sit when we tell her to. She is so smart and sweet, we all love her to death!
Charlie (a.k.a. Bosco)
May 18, 2013
Everything is great. He had a great night and and only two little accidents inside. He does his business as soon as we take him out. It helps to have another dog to show him the way. We love him!! We named him Charlie.
May 14, 2013
Bear has been the best. Every day he surprises me with his learning capabilties and how his loyalty contnues to grows. He is always ready to help out and Is happy & ready to have a great time. People are draw to his looks and fun personality wherever we go. In a group of people
or other animals he adjusts his behavior appropriate to the individual or animal. Big, little, short, or tall he loves the all.
He completes us as a family. Thank you for helping us pick him.
May 10, 2013
Just wanted to send ya a couple new pix. LeRoy continues to be a wonderful addition to our family! I taught him "sit" in about four minutes! So smart.
He and Benjamin are the best of friends.
Have an AUSSome weekend!
We’re enjoying Spring!
Leray went on his first Big Boy walk April 28, 2013! Benjamin, Aunty Hannah, Leroy & I walked to the coffee shop! He was GREAT on the leash! Only stopped to pee.
He did ride home in the stroller basket; it’s a long walk for a lil guy! Like I said, Leroy & Benjamin spend a lot of time together, and when I do dinner-most nights-they eat together, too. The pup does SO well not snatching the Baby’s food! He is a MUCH better listener than Benjamin!
Take care, and thanks again!
LeRoy’s a great family dog, but he’s really bonded with the baby, Benjamin. They’re pretty much best friends & constant companions! I have to tell the BOTH of them, several times each day, "Leave him alone!" And "Please don’t eat that, it’s his!"
Anyhow, at Aden’s school today, a group that works with him called Canine Inspired Change did a show; the dog Aden worked with was an Aussie, and the woman also had a Mini Aussie! So cool! We are talking about getting into therapy dog work!
PS. Thank you so much for trusting me & allowing us to bring this pup home on "layaway." He’s made our home & family better already.
May 4, 2013
I just wanted to give you an update on Griffin. He is doing great and is up to 9 pounds! He LOVES people and is the friendliest little puppy! Everyone he meets just loves him. We’ve been able to socialize him with lots of other dogs so he is very good with other dogs as well. Our neighborhood is filled with dogs so we usually meet 1-2 on our walks. He is becoming a good listener the more we work with him, and we are starting obedience classes next week to work on better focus. He is such a sweet little guy and we love having him as part of our family! Hope everything is well with you and your family!

Just wanted to fill you in on our little Barritt – he’s doing awesome. We love him to pieces. He had his last round of shots this week, and is healthy, growing perfectly and is sweet as pie. He is a star at puppy school, and is learning some fun frisbee tricks already!
I’ve attached a few pics for you to see him – he’s all smiles, and we are too.
Hope all is well for you and the new litter!
April 28, 2013
She is doing great!

Mara showed Tyson at the Minneapolis Kennel Club Show, Minneapolis MN February 24, 2013.
She earned her Beginner Novice A title with a score of 199/200.

Rooney (a.k.a. Hollister)
April 22, 2013
Watching TV….he was REALLY INTO it!
April 22, 2013
He loves his strawberry.
April 6, 2013
Just thought I would send a few pics to show how nicely our little guy is settling in. 🙂
April 2, 2013
Another great day with Barritt. I’ve attached a picture from tonight.
He looked too cute snoozing after a long walk and play time.
April 1, 2013
We’ve had a great first day! He cried for a bit in the car as we drove away, but calmed down after about 20 minutes and did great. Got home, he explored the house, we took him around the neighborhood for a walk, played, he ate, pooped, and played some more, walked some more and all
systems are working! He’s doing awesome. He did pretty well for his first night too – and we both spent a lot of time this morning and now he’s exhausted! I think we’re tiring him out.
I will certainly keep you posted on how things are going! He’s just a love – we are so happy. Thank you again for all your help, and for being so flexible with our crazy schedule yesterday!
Talk to you soon .
Libby (a.k.a. Paisley)
March 28, 2013
Everything is going great, she is amazingly smart and is hardly having any accidents in the house. She even learnded a few tricks. We absolutely love her.
Thank you for taking care of her microchip info for us. Have a good night and thank you for checking in.

What a great puppy, so smart, he has learned several tricks already.
We get compliments on him everywhere we go, and he goes with us all the time.
Thanks Wanda for raising such a well mannered puppy.
March 26, 2013
Tazor i’s doing great! He is so smart. We had him ringing the bell to go outside after showing him just a couple times. We absolutely love him!
March 26, 2013
Flynn is doing great! He passed his first Vet check up with flying colors, and everyone that sees him stops to say how beautiful his colors are! We are having so much fun. He’s doing well with potty training, the accidents are getting few and far between. We will start puppy obedience this
Saturday, and we are looking forward to that!
March 23, 2013
Blink is doing great. She loves the other dogs. They’re actually very patient with her. She’s a wonderful puppy.

Thought you might like this picture. He has such a sweet and goofy personality. Look at him, he’s totally smiling for the camera!
Ha. I just love him, thanks so much..
March 18, 2013
Just wanted to let you know our puppy is doing great. She is already going to the door at times and whining to go out, which is great. She LOVES the snow. She is doing pretty good walking on a leash and she slept in bed with my son until 7 this morning with no accidents.
On Friday we took a nap and she adjusted so well that she was asleep on the bed next to me, spread eagle on her back, not a care in the world.
We went to the vet on Friday they said everything looks great. She weighed 7.5 pounds. There was ZERO nervousness at the vet, she even crawled under the exam table and went to sleep while people came and went. She has played with several neighborhood dogs too!
As she gets bigger I will send you some pictures. I have attached a picture that was taken this weekend in our back yard.
March 17, 2013
Things are going great! He’s absolutely perfect! He whimpered for a few minutes in the car after we left, but took a nap most of the way home. He’s had a few accidents in the house, but has been doing really well going to the bathroom outside. He’s been eating every time we have
fed him, and is just a little ball of energy! His first night in the crate when really well, he whimpered for a few minutes after i left him but slept through the night. Last night when we put him to bed it sounded like he was up more often and cried a little bit, but we held strong and didn’t let him out
until this morning. We have his wellness check up in a few hours this morning, I will let you know how that goes. We are having so much fun!
P.S. I attached a picture of him when we got home yesterday afternoon, i hope you can see it ok. He was pretty tuckered out after playing with all of his new toys!
March 4, 2013
Harley is doing great! My dad came to visit last week and just loved him too. Everyone that meets him thinks he is the best dog. He’s such a cuddler too, it’s so sweet.
February 23, 2013
Hey Ms Wanda,
My name is Emella from Kaplan, Louisiana and I purchased autumn (now Bree) a red Merle female from you approx 3 years ago.
I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful addition to my family. I cannot express how much Bree means to me! She is truly a blessing and once again;
Thank You !!
February 14, 2013
I haven’t sent you an email lately. Looks like you have a farm full of puppies! How awesome! And Kojack, yay you!!! I am trying to convince my husband to let me add one of Roxy’s pups to our family, but he’s not caving 🙂 oh how I still love that girl!
Koda (Denver) is doing great! We’ve been going to Focus & Self Control classes at Bonafide Dog Academy in Omaha or the last 6 weeks and he’s so smart and quick to learn, such a joy to work with & be around. I Attached a picture of him with my year old daughter, he shared his toys & knows not to grab them out of hands of kids! Leaps and bounds! Next week we will be starting Happy Herders class which is basic obedience. After that we’re going for the CGC! I hope to get rolling in agility this summer and fall. I can’t believe he’s almost 2!
Nala ( a.k.a. Simone)
January 28, 2013
Hi Wanda. I just wanted to let you know Simone (now named Nala) is doing great.
She is sweet and full of love.
She is doing good in agility and frisbee. She learns fast and is very well behaved.
We are very happy with her.
January 16, 2013
Hi Wanda, he is great! He sits and will shake on command. He picks up things so quick… My beagle is just too stubborn. Even on our walks he walks right alongside me. His favorite though is when I let him lay on the bed, he doesn’t know he’s suppose to be at the foot of the bed yet. He just wants to be within petting distance.
January 14, 2013
Timber is wonderful! He got his bortetello vaccine nose spray and nails clipped this weekend because he starts his puppy class Tuesday night!
His legs are getting long!
On first Lake Harriet walk. We met so many people and pups that we took him on the snow covered ice on the way back so he could run a bit off leash …and get back without too many interruptions!
Mornings are spent under my chair at work before heading out for a walk at lunch.
January 4, 2013
Jester is doing great! He is an excellent companion for my 11 year old son. Jester is a very smart dog and catches on quickly. His favorite toy is the frisbee, he does amazing jumps when catching it. He is very friendly with people and other pets. He has grown into a very beautiful dog.
January 4, 2013
Hi Wanda. One year ago this week, we brought little Lotty home with us and life hasn’t been the same since! We call her Willow and she’s the love of our lives! What a special little dog she is. A very quick learner and so willing. She understands an extensive vocabulary and sometimes I forget she’s a dog! She never went through the typical puppy behavior of getting into things or chewing. She’s always had lots of her own toys and that’s all she totes around. She potty trained easily. She’s a great house dog and can be left free to roam the whole house without an accident for up to 12 hours! She loves to go to the park, on walks, and for rides in the car. She’s an amazing frisbee dog! She has gotten lots of attention from friends and neighbors and my 2 young grandchildren think she’s a bundle of fun. She’s been such a joy. I’ve had many dogs in my lifetime but none as special as Willow is.
Thank you for giving her such a good start! Thought you’d enjoy seeing a picture I took of her today. Happy New Year!
January 3, 2013
Well, it’s been almost 2 weeks since we picked up our little Timber! He is just a great addition to our family. He is so cuddly and smart. Thanks to you he has slept through the night since we brought him home and is 99% potty trained. We will be starting puppy classes next week.
He truly gave us a Merry Christmas!
Thank you and Happy New Year
