Haven't "talked" to you in a while, but wanted to send you the latest picture of Samantha. The bunny's pretty scary! She has tons of energy! Hope all is well with you and your family. Have a Happy Easter

What a weekend for you, no? Congrats to all your Kings!!!! Here's hoping all the people & dogs got home safe, to enjoy a spectacular Halloween. It's crisp here, but dry, just like the days of old. Hope the boys have a gas this year. He is really my right hand man, I couldn't be any prouder of him, Shelley. He really is my life-saver!!!! Thanks again for the great advice. Have fun & Happy Halloween!!

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 dog!
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 holiday season.

Well it's been a while since we sent a recent picture of Dakota. Here he is at 2yrs. 4 months and still growing. This was at the Fall Extravaganza 2005, He's such a "momma's boy"! Yeah, but he loves his "daddy" too. Nina and I have such a good time at the shows. We enjoy being with everyone and also seeing all the new faces and puppies that are adding to "the family". We look forward to the next time we meet. Dakota is our Champion but he is our "buddy" first and always. Thank you Shelley once again for such a beautiful friend and companion.

Winter is coming, it is snowing and Kona likes it. ( as I write this to you he is out in the snow rolling around ) He is the best dog ever, smart and full of love. All the best.
