Dorothy, It has been 3 weeks and I wanted to give you an update on Harry (Troubles).
Harry has turned out to be beyond our greatest expectations. He is without a doubt the most beautiful, loveable, and greatest little joy we have ever had. Like a good Lhasa he has a beautiful personality, loves being around people and is an absolute dynamo of energy.
Besides us he has his own fan club. My sister never saw a Lhasa puppy and is amazed at how such a small package can be so beautiful and loveable.
All the ladies where I work ask about him everyday and I keep sharing pictures with them.
It is amazing how he just loves to explore and get into everything. We take him in the back yard and he just loves to run around and check out every stone, stick, leaf, and flower.
I've attached a few photos from the very large album I am building. People ask me where we got him and of course I am recommending to all of them that if they want a Lhasa puppy I know where they can get one (Countryside)
Thank you for this little bundle of joy.
I hope all is well with you because we saw on the national weather you have been having some hot days.
Bless you, Bill and CJ

Hi Dorothy- This is the most wonderful dog!!! We LOVE him!! He is the cutest thing and has us laughing a lot! "Big sister" is at times playmate and friend, other times she's a bit gruff --but he certainly doesn't back down or give up! We had a bunch of snow and they have been playing out in the paths we carved out with the shovel. Scout was a pup in the springtime, so I'm a little bit worried about how long he can stay out - I've only been letting him play outside (it's in the 20s) for about 10 to 15 minute periods. What do you think?
My 10 year old daughter/veterinarian has taken lots of pictures so I'll email a couple soon. Thank you soooo much for the great dog. Also, I would love to send the travel crate back to you if you'd like it back - it's worth sending isn't it? Jennifer

Just wanted to send you a picture of Bella. She is doing very good, naughty sometimes but most of the time is very good. She retrieves very good and loves feathers, I can't wait to get her out next fall. Thanks again. Ryan L Mitchell, SD

Dear Dorothy, Thank you so much for my puppy I bought from you on 8/27/05. She is now about 7 months old and she is awesome to have around. My family loves her and spoils her very much. She is doing great, she is up to date on shots and vet checks and is very healthy. I was nervouse about buying a puppy from a different state and not knowing her personality but Bella (thats the name I chose for her) is perfect for me and I'm sure I will adopt a puppy from you again. Thank You,Kali

I am just writing to tell you that all is well with the puppy we have named "Betsy". She is healthy and playful, and at times healthy and sleepy. She was seen at our vet on 9/1 and everything looked good at that time. She will be seen again on 11/14.
She was registered through AKC. Her full name is Dakota Betsy Rose and her registration number if SR0007XXXX.
Thank you, again. Ken R

Just inquiring about your Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Do you still list on puppyfind.com ?
We bought a Springer from you in November 2005. Baxter is a wonderful companion- so sweet and loving.
I have attached a picture of him.
We are thinking about getting another puppy. We may be interested in the Cavaliers. Are they like the Springer- well tempered, fun, and loving? Also- do they shed very little like our Springer?
Please respond at your convenience.
And thank you for our wonderful Baxter.

This is Isaac J. from Fergus Falls, MN. I bought your springer puppy Ellie from you last fall and first I want to let you know that I am VERY pleased with her. She has made a wonderful addition to our family and everyone loves her tons. I am just writing to you because we are thinking about getting another springer pup and possibly breeding Ellie, maybe next year, and I first wanted to make sure that this was ok with you that we do so, and second I was browsing and saw that you have a new litter of springer pups that are six weeks old. If its ok with you that we breed Ellie I would love to get another bundle of joy from you because I appreciate the time, energy, and love you put into raising your puppies. I saw one of puppies online named Ranger and he is very handsome and I was wondering if you could tell me if he is related to Ellie in any way.
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear back from you soon,
Isaac J. Fergus Falls, MN
Issac sent us another email some time later:

I just wanted to give you some updates on the wonderful puppies. Ellie and I went out dove hunting this morning and she got her first 4 doves! Ranger is doing excellent and is getting along well. We took him out today and he was fetching, bringing, giving, and pointing already with the fetching dummy and some dove wings! He is coming along wonderfully. Thank you again for such wonderful puppies!
Hope you enjoy the pictures,

Emma is home safe and sound. We met our neighbors at the airport and we both got our dogs at the same time. They are beautiful!!!
Emma is a little spit-fire. She is already perfectly adjusted. I can't say the same for Lucy. She is not real happy. They are playing together a little and if I put Emma in the crate and she cries, Lucy goes to make sure she is okay. I'm sure in time they will be great friends. Arthur and I alreadys Love Emma. She is so cute and funny. She jumps like a kangaroo when she runs and is chewing everything she can get her mouth on. I am sooooo Happy.
Thank you for everything. I hope you have a nice trip. I will be sending pictures as soon as I can get her to stop long enough to get a clear picture. Again thank you for our beautiful little girls. They are perfect.
Then Carol emailed us again a few days later:

I hope you had a nice trip and that all is well with your Son and Daughter-in-Law. Did you enjoy the ocean?
Well, we are certainly enjoying little Emma. She is beautiful. Lucy and Emma are becoming good friends. Lucy is very protective and Emma loves her. But!!! Emma is a HOLY TERROR. Lucy was a very sweet puppy. She never barked until she was about 6 months old. She was cuddly and sweet. Emma is so different! She is a spit fire. She barks to get her point accross, barks to eat, barks to play, bites with those little puppy teeth, is eating us out of house and home, in other words she is a real hand full. She tries to do everything Lucy does. It is so funny. She knows her name and comes when she is called. Artie calls her Emma and I call her M&M. She comes to both names. We Love her to death!!!!! She makes us laugh constantly.
I have attached some pictures. I hope you like them. Thank you for another perfect puppy!

Hope you are all well, sorry I've meant to e-mail you with Molly photos, she is a very very sweet dog,!!! Your breeding really shows... she is also very very pretty!!! But of course I'm the mommy & totally prejudiced. I hope you can open the files.
Sunday, February 18, 2007
She is here safe. The kids love her and she seems to love them. Everything is going fine. Right now she is sleeping on her bed. I think the kids made her tired. Well, thank you so much for making this an easy process. You were great to work with. thanks again, sasha

Hi, We wanted to give you a few updated pictures of our puppy. We named her Dakota and she's doing very well. She's very active and gets a little crazy but we still love her.

Dorothy—here are a few photos of Pip in various family roles—on our boat, at the family Xmas tree, prize winner (the Wizard of Ox ‘Straw Man’) at our local Halloween dog run costume contest with his brother Patch (age 13), etc. Feel free to use any of these for your album.
Also, please let us know if the Charlotte/Louie union results in any expected puppies. It would mean a lot to us to have another dog from them.
Best, Jon M.

We enjoyed hearing from you and apologize for now responding sooner. We received your email while on a cruise, returning on the 15th. We hated having to board Max, but in the end, all went very well. We also had him neutered while he was boarded. He's a bit over 10 pounds and just as good as can be. He's a very active, healthy little guy and we just love him to pieces. Yes, he is spoiled and the training is going very well. We thought having to board him, might have an effect on the training process, but he fell right back into his pattern and all is going well. He's a healthy, very active little pup and we enjoy him so much. Our thanks again for bringing him into our lives. He definitely has added many enjoyable moments for the two of us. Life wouldn't be the same without him. Attached are two pics of our little Max. Cozy in Custer, Don, Jane and Max

Thank you so much for getting back to me. Of course you can use Lucy's picture and coments. She is such a great dog I would love to show her off. I would love to see pictures of the pups. We had our heart set on a female because we thought it would be better for Lucy. If you could let me know what you think would be better I would appreciate it. I want to do whats best for her and I don't have any experience on this. I know what wonderful pups Brandi and Harry have but would be happy to have one of Reggie's pups too. It seems to me that our Lucy got her father's love for the water and adventure and her mother's kindness and loving heart. Is Reggie lovable too?
I don't know how to go about getting a puppy from you. How does she or he get here and what is the cost. I guess I'm getting ahead of myself. I'm just excited about the possibility of having another baby to love. I look forward to hearing from you again!

Thank you for the all of the pictures! I really enjoy seeing them, they are beautiful dogs. My home address is 938 Main Street, XXXXXXXX NY 125XX. Sam has not been in the water to swim yet, we are hoping to get him in this summer, but he loves taking baths and has such a laid back personality. Sasha on the other hand loves to swim and has tons of energy! Thank you so much for the pictures and the dogs my family and I have ,they are a true joy!

Just wanted to drop a quick line to let you know Scout is doing great, it didn't take long for him to get adapted to his new surroundings. We kept him in a kennel in our bedroom last night, he didn't whine or bark for more than a few minutes before settling down to sleep. Joanne and the kids got to stay home today because of the weather and that was a good thing for him, he spent the whole day playing with the kids. Achievements for the day: making yellow snow and destroying a cat toy in less than 10 minutes.
We are certain that he is ready to change his denomination to English "Sofa" Spaniel. He's a great pup, attached are a couple pictures, we'll send more later. Thank you.

Here are a few pictures of Shakira. We took you advice and used a little tape on her ear. We did this for two days and now the ear stays up. She has been a little stuborn however a real bundle of joy.
We are starting to learn her schedule which means the potty training is going good. We still have accidents every now and then.
She wasn't eating very well on the weekend after we got her. She just wanted to play and get to know us. That has since changed. She still doesn't eat much in the morning, 7:00 am, however her lunch time meal and evening meal are both healthy.
Have a great weekend.

Hi We just wanted to let you know that little baby Spike is doing very well. He is loving all the attention and love. He is quite the spunky little guy! He tries to beat up on Angel, our westie, already. Anyway, here are some pictures that we have taken so far. He is being properly spoiled as well Even the daycare kids are a little jealous of his blanket.

Thought I would send you a couple of pictures of the new baby. She is doing well. Eating well and has us trained well. We are still in Wisc. As you can see, she is growing like a weed. She has spent the last week being a copycat of our daughter's springer. It seems that Daisy Springer has adopted her for a while. They play, and mom springer washes her. The needle sharp teeth do cause a few problems for Daisy but she has not hurt her once, just growls when it hurts to much and pushes her away with her nose. Glenn
We are hoping to get all our new families on the website in the near future. Here are just a few.

I've attached a recent picture of our two pups we got from you. Alice on the left who is almost 9 months old ( we got most recently) and Jasper (who is 3 next month!) that we got from you when he was 9 months old. We love them and Alice has learned so much. They melt your hearts and make us smile all the time! They are so silly (and So smart). Thank you!
July 27, 2012 Pam wrote: Thought I would give you an update on our Springer Spaniel, Tanner (renamed Thumper). We actually should have called him "Jumper", he is such a circus dog! He is about 7 months old and definitely the most obedient and "Velcro" spaniel I have owned. I rarely need to put him on a leash.
He is rapidly becoming an adolescent, but with 3 of our kids home from school, someone is always walking/running or playing with him. Thumper is beautiful & very affectionate, and loves to chase birds. He is good friends with several neighorhood dogs, and has regular wrestling matches with a 4 month old yellow lab and a Tibetan terrier puppy. Anyway, thanks so much, we love Thumper.
Feb 17th, 2013. Here is Kenzie and Michael. " She is so playful. Michael has so much fun with her. Yet she snuggles in our laps, too. She is Perfect. I prayed about getting the right puppy because our dog who was killed, Mocha, was a big act to follow. But Kenzie is everything we wanted. Michael loves her to death. We all do!"
Feb 18th, 2013 Rhonda says " Buffy is a good puppy. Very loving , playful and cuddly. She follows me everywhere. So cute.
