I just wanted to let you know that we had a great
time at the Extravaganza and wish that we could have
stayed longer. We really enjoyed meeting all the
other Kings, especially Bustah. He's such a
wonderful big boy! It was great fun talking to all
the other King owners and exchanging stories and
experiences. Thanks for taking time to chat with us
and answer all our questions. Please let your mom
know that we think she is a sweetheart. She really
took Josh under her wing at the banquet which is
something she didn't have to do. Your boys are
awfully cute and you should be proud as to how well
behaved they were.
Thanks again for all your help. Take care and we'll
be in touch with updates about Kona.

are the photos. Hope you can open them. Saber
is such a good boy when he is not digging up my
flowers! The Ember puppy is amazing. Such a
good puppy. She rules over Saber and he loves her.

I know that I will have tons more photos for you
from time to time, so here's the beginning!
Okay, there's one photo here that you're going to
think "Oh my God, why are they letting her on the
couch!", but we know she'll get bigger, and we don't
like the couch that much anyway! We all usually sit
in the chairs.
Took Abbey for a walk around the yard (dressed in my
robe) this morning, and wasn't there 4 people who
showed up to see her... good thing I'm not terribly
modest! Poor girl is pooped-out and stretched out
under the table right now, tough being a popular
girl with a social calendar!
These were all taken with the digital camera. I plan
on putting some film in my good camera and getting
some really nice ones of her. I'll be sure to pass
those on to you. I want to get some nice outdoor
shots, but it's been raining for several days -
there are parts of this county still under a flood
warning - last day it was sunny was May 11 (and
before that it was just as bad.) Hopefully the sun
will come out soon, we are taking walks with her in
between rain breaks!
Abbey at 8 weeks!
Here are a couple pictures of Kathe and Vishnue.
Both are doing great. Kathe was 45.5 # at the vets
yesterday, Vishnue was 46.5. Both are a real
handful! Always into something, Oh well they will
Vishnu at 16 weeks!
Kathe at 16 weeks!
As always, the excitement of sharing
my joy with you, should not come today, as a big
surprise. You could not believe (or maybe you
can) Orion's performance today, in the obedience
ring. He was amongst many seasoned dogs
& many more qualified old timers. He held his
head high, cued on command & won the hearts of all
who watched. I even had the honor of being
asked personally about him, by the judge. His
temperament is enviable, his intelligence
unsurpassed by many others today, as they crowd was
big, the noise great. YOU would have been
proud of him. He won second place with an
incredible score of 192, pretty good for a pup, eh?
I know how you always encourage me to do my best,
today, Orion did his!!!!
I am hoping this finds you happy for
the news that once again, Bustah would be proud!
Have a great weekend, we are off to have a bone & a
nap, he certainly earned his kisses today!
Warm wishes to you,
Kathy & Orion
Orion at 9 months!
Hi Shelley -
Ranger finished puppy kindergarten yesterday and I
have to brag and tell you that he was the only puppy
(and the youngest) that was able to do the "sit" and
"down" commands using hand signals only! What
a smart boy!!! I continue to get tons of
compliments about him - he really is gorgeous, smart
and well behaved! Thank you, again, for giving
us such a wonderful puppy!!
Looking forward to talking with you soon - Linda
Ranger 12 weeks!
Josephine is such a love. . .

It's hard to believe that Wolfgang is
8 years old. He is the most gentle, loving
dog, I have ever had. He is still very active
and every morning when I let him out, he loves to
howl a "good morning" to all the neighbor's dogs.
Thank you for my Wolfie.
Wolfgang at 8 years old!
