I finally got around to scanning some
pictures of Stella into my computer. She is 9
months old now, and I think you will see, quite
attractive! There is some pictures of her with
my kids, one of my husband playing with her (she
is his favorite person now, because he is the
main person to play with her, and she LIVES for
playing!) and a picture of her with Mufasa, my
big, old Mastiff.
I will update you with more pictures as she
continues to grow...
Stella at 9 months!
Troy is beautiful. The picture you sent us doesn't
do him justice. He is more than we expected.. We'll
keep you posted.
Thanks so much for calling this evening - it was
great talking with you! I really appreciate you
taking the time to answer all my questions. I
thought you might like to see a few more recent
pictures. We have added a new member to our
menagerie - a Norwegian Forest Cat named Voinic -
who as it turns out, is fearless and thinks he rules
the roost. Sometimes I think he's part dog since he
plays with the dog's toys, lounges on the floor,
drinks out of the dog's water bowls and even likes
to hang out in Kona's crate. Very strange! One
night he laid on the floor and played with Kona's
tail. Kona takes it all in stride and is amazingly
I'll keep you posted on Kona's progress.
Kona and friends!

Just sending along an update of Sabre. He is a
big strong handsome dog and we are very pleased with
his markings, especially on his face and neck. He
loves the snow and the cold doesn't bother him a
bit. He does well with obedience and is smart and
easy to train. He loves to lay on the doorstep
on the east side of the house in the sunshine and he
always sticks close to home and doesn't roam.
He is showing lots of potential. We are very happy
with Sabre as he is turning out to be an awesome
We had 14 inches of snow recently and Kona is in
seventh heaven. When asked if he wants to go
"outside," he barks and starts spinning in circles.
He adores running, leaping, chasing after snowballs,
chewing on icicles and just lounging in the snow
when he gets tired.
Kona is quite the character and has such a playful
spirit. He and Spot, our 15 pound cat, have
developed a game which is hysterical to watch.
Spot jumps up on the chair in the kitchen and then
Kona proceeds to either lick him or gently gnaw on
his head, ears, tail or legs. Spot half-heartedly
whacks at Kona and when he's had enough, just gets
up and leaves. Kona is not shy about recruiting us
to play with him and he'll bring various toys over
to us. If we don't notice him, he'll push the toys
into our legs or hands or drop them on our heads if
we're lying down on the couch to get our attention.
The dog therapy community service program is going
very well. Every other week Josh, two of his friends
and 3 dogs (Kona, Morgan and Sari the Chihuahua) all
pile into the truck and we head up to an assisted
living facility. The residents just love to see the
dogs and get a kick out of the variation in sizes.
They adore Kona and can't get over how big and
handsome he is. Josh does a great job handling Kona
and takes him around to visit with everyone. We sang
Christmas carols during our visit this week and Kona
joined in with some yips and howls.
We hope you and your family have a very happy
Jean, Jeff and Josh
