I just wanted to update you on
our little boy (he's not so
little). I took him to the vet last week for his 3
mos. checkup/shots & he weighed 33 lbs. Our newfie
weighed 35lbs at 3 mos. He's going to be a big guy!
He's definitely a character & is giving Thor ( our
malamute) a rough time. They play constantly & Zeus
holds his own against Thor. He won't back down at
We are starting puppy classes this week. He is quite
smart. He already knows to sit, heel, & can catch a
ball in the air. We are trying to teach him to catch
a frisbee, but he would rather chew on them right
now. He also goes to all of our daughter's high
school softball games & the girls think he is their
mascot. He is so well behaved, he just sleeps thru
all the action!
We are having a blast with him- he keeps us laughing
constantly! Thanks for bringing him into our lives!
I just wanted to let you that Petunia is absolutely
the best dog I have ever
owned (or she owns me). She is not only beautiful,
but she is so very well-behaved and has been
since the day she arrived.
We just got back from a 3 mile walk, and she is
sound asleep in the kitchen.
She has a great appetite and is growing by leaps and
If I ever figure out how to scan photos I will send
you one of her. She is
Maverik is growing big and strong!
We take him wherever we go. He enjoys riding in the
back of my truck.
He is very obedient and wants to be a good dog. He
quickly and seldom does things we don't like more
than once or twice.
Shelley: We are very happy
with the puppy. At four months, Dante is 60
lbs. with a very sweet disposition. He fits
into this household of kids, cats and dogs very
I just thought I would let you
know that Mishka is doing great!
She and Sasha are good friends. Mishka doesn't
like to do anything without her big sister.
She is eating really well. When we weighed her
at the vets on the Monday after getting her she was
21.2 lbs. I have a feeling she weighs more
then that now. She is growing like a weed!
She loves to chase the cats still. I am hoping
she grows out of that soon. She is a happy
puppy though. As soon as I finish up my roll
of film I will send you pictures of her and my
nephews. There should be some cute ones.
I hope things are going well with you.

No, I should thank you :)
She is a beautiful dog and that is
because you are a great breeder who cares about the
animals she produces. I adore Mishka.
She is really a wonderful and sweet loving dog.
I wanted to let you know that I bought the New
Encyclopedia of Dog. It is really an
interesting book. I was amazed at how many
breeds the AKC does not recognize. Anyhoo...Bustah
is beautiful. I hope things are going well for

Thanks for sharing your
beautiful family with me on Saturday. Your
mother and I talked like we had known each other for
a long time. Your son is quite "the man" -- and he
knows it. It was easy to see that he is the light of
his Mom's eye! You are a very special person!
God has given you many gifts. I thank you for
Only God could have
guided you as your decision was made to select that
cute, bold, " you can look but don't touch" puppy

markings, TEMPERAMENT, and conformation are
wonderful!! I wanted you to read my mind and
you did! Congratulations!!

We are all in LOVE with our Harley. His is becoming
wonderful in everyway. He has matured a lot and
keeps us all amused, and of course, he loves us
Thank you for raising a splendid breed!
Great news! I had the
roll of Harley's photos after all! He's so
sweet and handsome, loves EVERYONE, loves to PLAY!
His favorite pastimes are: chewing his toys, chasing
frisbees, catching balls, and riding in the car.
His least favorite pastime is eating his expensive
food with the expensive supplements (smile).
So how did he get SO BIG!?
I hope to send you more photos
in the not-so-distant future. When the snow

take a moment to let you know that Clifford is
doing great! We just completed our puppy

Even though she is only 15 weeks old she has

I also wanted to
remind you that I am interested in a "show
