I am so glad I got Denali. He is wonderful. He isn't afraid, always looks happy and he barks at anything strange looking like he is already a big dog. The cats are very tolerant of him and he tries to get them to play. Sequoia (the Maine Coon) and Denali even ate their dinner out of a double bowl together. Sequoia didn't get very much but it was dog food anyway. Sparkle is having an attitude problem about not being the spoiled little baby dog anymore, but I think he will get used to Denali and be ready to play soon enough. Denali does make it hard to walk as he thinks he should be walking right under me. He has learned about drinking out of the hose and seems to like to ride in the truck. Everyone in Summerland is crazy about him. All the people at the bank quit working and asked me to put him on the floor so they could play with him. Summerland is quite a small town, and Denali is very good at socializing. He is sweet and friendly with every one but follows me around like he knows who he belongs to. He has a little collar, but thinks the idea of a leash attached it totally bad!! What a great breed of dogs.
We love our newest family member,
Denali at 9 weeks!
Here are a couple of pictures that we took of Bella yesterday with her new toys. She was quite playful after she had a good night's sleep. Please excuse the size of these pictures. I have an ancient 1 MP digicam w/ software that doesn't allow you to compress the image after the shot is taken. I'll be borrowing a better camera from work tonight and we'll take a family picture w/ Bella.
Thanks for your help. We love her.

I have been trying to send these pictures for about 3 months now. Sorry they are so late. Miss Harley is a mere 60 lbs right now, she is growing up so fast! Everyone stops to look at her and tell her how beautiful she is when we're out walking. She is typical Shepherd, not interested in strangers walking to close to the front door, unless they are visiting her! She loves to play ball, and almost always brings it right back. Sometimes she says 'Come on, mom! Get off your butt and chase me!!'
She has decided to go and wait by the back door when she has to go potty and she also seems to know that the cat food is off limits, but she's allowed to drink their water. I can't believe how smart she is! Also when we are out walking and she finds something, all I have to say is "Leave It!" and we continue walking. I could go on and on saying how great she is, but I am sure you can imagine :-) !
Take Care and THANK YOU! for my baby!!
Lauren and Harley

Here are some pics of Magnus and lily my mom’s dog. Thought you might like to see them. Magnus is doing great. He’s so well trained and just loves everyone. He’s done all his obedience classes and one agility class and just turned 2. This summer I think I’ll be taking him to do some police training with tracking and Schh. We will be doing this over at the kennel my mom worked at which is bear brook kennels. Hope you like the pictures, and sorry they’re late.

Just wanted to send you a quick note to say how much we are enjoying the new addition to our family here in Toronto. Boris is a constant source of joy and warmth. He loves playing with his toys, but particularly loves attacking cardboard boxes for some reason. He continues to grow in leaps and bounds, has already learned to sit, is now doing number 2 exclusively outside in the yard. Number 1 is almost always done on some newspapers by the back door.
Our journey back from Elkins Park went very smoothly, and Boris slept in his crate most of the way home. Claire sat next to him in the back seat and rested a hand gently on one of Boris's forepaws, which he continues to need in order to get to sleep at night.
Thanks again, Shelley, for providing us with such a beautiful pup. He's everything we'd imagined he'd be and more. Hope you and your family are all happy and healthy.
Sean, Claire and Boris Le Bigfoot
