I just wanted to
let you know that I took Sydnie to the vet
Saturday to weight her. Sydnie weights 91 lbs.
at 8 months old.
How is she doing
compared to the rest of the litter? I am going
to try to weight her every month and I will let you
know her progress. When my husband gets home at
night from work, she is so excited! She is a
I just wanted to
let you know that she is doing great! Sydnie
and Sasha are the best of buddies!
She is such a
good girl. She is 100% puppy!
I will talk with
Wolfy is very healthy and happy. She gets so much
attention with the other dogs and kids. In
general, she is an energetic, precocious little
shepherd puppy. Much more out-going than the
standard poodle pup (4 1/2 months). The Standard
poodle pup plays roughly with her (doesn't hurt her,
just is physical). But Wolfy holds her own while
only half her size.
It is amazing how fast she has grown! I am taking
her to the vet Saturday for booster shots.
Wolfy brings laughter and joy into our lives. Our
video camera quit working but we continue to snap
I will continue to forward pics to you.

I wanted to let you know that Xena is doing fine.
She was excellent on the ride home. She's in love
with Ava (the Brit) and follows her all around.
Ava (smarty that she is) realizes that she is a
She slept in her crate last night and got up 3 times
for potty breaks. No messes in the house yet. She
isn't afraid of anything and has already mastered
the one front step which is a little too high but
she manages to pull herself up.
We want to thank you for the obvious care you gave
to the puppies and how well-adjusted she is. All
the credit is yours.
Talk to you soon.

Xena the Warrior Princess!
Hope you have a beautiful
Christmas. Dusty is approaching five and he is
a wonderful companion. He is perfect! He sends his
love. His chest and rump are still broadening.
You promised me he'd stop growing :) Hugs to
all your puppies!

We took Kodi to the vet yesterday for her well visit
and shots. Vet liked her alot, loved her
temperament. She now weighs 27
lbs at 10 weeks. Her right ear is doing a pretty
good job of standing up, left ear is still a little
floppy (up about 1/2 way). I am still wrestling with
the little devil, trying to get her to stack , and
walk like a lady.
At least food seems to be an incentive for this
pup! Just wanted to keep ya posted.
I just weighed Kodi today.
She is 5 1/2 months old and weighs 73 pounds.
Either she is going to be a big girl, or I need to
get her on a diet! LOL! I saw her
pic on the KS website today, and want to thank you
for putting it there. I am very proud of my
not so little girl!!!!!!!!!

How are you?. How's the baby?. Major is doing
great, I can't say anything more about him! I got
the letter the other day, do we have to sign it and
send it back to you? Major's ears are coming up,
they're about half way up on both sides. His
training is coming along great , I started doing
Down with him today, No Problem! I think by 6 months
he should be ready for the C.G.C. award or maybe an
obedience event. Still no shows around town, yet
Gotta go call you soon...
Sorry I haven't had a chance to write till now!
Jasmine is doing
beautifully! I can honestly say I have never
dealt with a dog like her. She is everything
you said she would be...So intelligent, eager to
please, loves to play, so easy to work with!
We *love* her!
The vet visit was as I expected - All four of them
gathered round to admire- and none had ever seen a
King Shepherd. They were impressed to say the
least! Dr. Egnor gave me all kinds of
information about The Magic Valley Kennel Club,
invited me to their meeting on Tuesday, and to the
class on Wed. She wants for me to wait until
Jasmine has completed her vaccinations to bring her,
but thinks it would be helpful for me to come and
observe. Apparently she is very active in the
organization and was excited for me to introduce the
Anyway, Jasmine was such a good girl! In fact,
she slept through her injection...Dr. Egnor and I
had been talking for a while about showing, and I
guess she just needed her nap...Dr. Egnor said she
was in top shape, did not appear thin (I have been
worrying over this), and absolutely thought her coat
looked gorgeous. She was very impressed with
your vitamin regime. As a matter of fact, she
seemed extremely impressed about everything.
She copied the Standard of the Breed for her
personal records. Oh, Jasmine weighs 43
pounds. I have started her on the ProPlan Lamb
and Rice formula, she still
is "grazing" a lot. She looks to me like she
is growing, getting taller. She seems to be losing
that roly-poly look!
I will write more about our escapades later (yep,
she rolled in the mud). Hope all is well with you,
write when you get a chance. Thanks again,
Shelley for this fantastic pup.
Oh, Shelley, the
funniest part was everybody saying, "Look at her
FEET!", gasping and shaking their heads.
Needless to say, she was a BIG HIT! LOL!

Sorry it took so long to update you on Zeus'
progress, but we have been busy with softball &
summer. I will forward some pictures on to you next
week. He is a beautiful dog- very friendly & sweet.
We socialized him by taking him to all of our
daughter's high school softball games. He was so
slept thru most of them! But he became the girls'
mascot. They made it all the way to the regional
playoffs, with Zeus right along with them!!
He is just over 6 mos. old now & weighs about 90lbs.
He is already taller than Thor, our malamute, much
to Thor's dismay! They get along really well-Zeus
learned how to play-fight quickly. We took him
to puppy class & he graduated to beginner's with
ease. He knows how to fetch, catch a tennis ball,
sit, stay, down, come, heel & loves the tunnel on
the obstacle course!
His only fault is that he loves all dogs, but wants
to play the same way with all of them like he plays
with Thor. Unfortunately, he scares some of them.
We're working on that with him. He has truly
enriched our household!
