I thought you might get a kick out of this one!! Dakota continues to be a little “superstar”, what a great little dog she is. Take care.
In 2 more weeks she will be a successful graduate of Basic Obedience Training. She is so smart ……. catches on to every new trick or command in short order. The only thing I don’t really push is the proper leash walking as I like to use a long extendable leash so she gets lots of exercise. She is doing very well and I hope her siblings are doing as well as she is. Funny, I remember when I was first trying to decide on a dog I wanted a puppy that would be around 10 pounds full grown. My little Dakota is now 14 pounds but I actually think the bigger size is better. She is a tough little girl with tons of energy and we have a lot of fun together. She is now totally accustomed to kayak trips and bike rides!! Many more adventures to come. Just thought I would send this as a quick update to let you know how well she is doing.
Going into week 3 and Dakota has settled in nicely. Your litter box training of the pups was awesome, she uses her litter box and easily transitioned into doing her business when we are outside….she is an extremely smart and talented little dog and everybody, especially me, loves her to bits. Just wanted to let you know that she is doing fabulous and having lots of fun in her new forever home.
Just a quick note to advise that I had my vet check her out and little Dakota is the picture of health and the entire vet clinic has fallen in love with her so she will receive awesome treatment during any visits. Hope the rest of her siblings transitioned as well as she did.

Hello Corrine and Mike, I hope you and your fur family are well.
Just wanted to give you an update on our little Toffee. He’s sassy, comical, obedient one minute, mellow and low key the next minute. He has matured these past few weeks. I can see that he looks like a mix of both Jumba and Zeva .Toffee is almost 7 months! He’s almost 12 pounds. He was neutered about three weeks ago. He was such a trooper! He was sad the day we picked him up after his surgery, but he perked up right away the next day. He’s fully housetrained now but we leave the litter box out just in case. He never uses it much anymore. He can ring the bell hanging on our patio door to indicate that he needs to go do his business outside. We have a wonderful relationship with our dog trainer/walker/sitter. Isabel our trainer takes Toffee out twice a week at off leash parks and beaches. where Toffee can run and spar with other dogs in his pack. Toffee used to be the youngest pup in his pack, but since then, new pups have arrived and Toffee puts them in their place! I’ll send you more photos. We’ve switched Toffee from Kibble to Real Raw diets. We do a combination of freezed dried grand cru kibble and raw paddies containing meat, tendons and bones. We still give him his probiotics every morning. Toffee gobbles it up right away. We think raw is the way to go for dogs as we’ve seen, he was getting bored of the kibble. I know that you probably think about your dogs everyday. But I really wanted to update you on the progress of our little guy. Toffee has brought so much joy into our lives! Here are some pictures and videos of Toffee running with his pack!
I feel fortunate to have found you and your pups. I heard something a long time ago that has always stuck with me. “When baking a cake you can’t add the sugar later” he had to start his journey in a happy loving home to have turned out to be such a happy loving pup.
Corinne Hard to believe Clive has been in our lives for 5 weeks. I am so in love with this little boy. We are fast friends. He is sleeping through the night. We are now comfortably able to leave him for a couple of hours in his safe space where he is content and happy to play or sleep. The litter box training a god send. We had our first groom today and he couldn’t be handsomer. The groomer said he was cooperative and well behaved. I just wanted to say thank you. I feel fortunate to have found you and your pups. I heard something a long time ago that has always stuck with me. “When baking a cake you can’t add the sugar later” he had to start his journey in a happy loving home to have turned out to be such a happy loving pup. My hubby says since Clive came into our lives I look so much happier and content. I have found my rhythm again. Thank you Erica
By all means you may use Clive and I
on your reference page. I honestly don’t
think there will be any room left on “the cloud”
if I don’t stop recording every time he looks
so darned cute. On another note he must feel
happy safe and comfortable here with us.
The last two nights he has been placed in his safe space to sleep at 9pm ~ wakes around 12am for a pee and a cuddle I sit with him drink a tea with him quietly for about 20 minutes ~ he falls back to sleep and not a peep til 7am. Fingers crossed we can keep it up ??
Hope the video works?? It’s Calvin in the snow..so cute. Thank you!!
I thought I would do a quick update. Mabel is doing amazing and she is so much fun. The grandchildren adore her and help with her training, feeding and poop patrol when they are with us. Mabel and I have been taking clicker classes and that is great, she just got her CGC title.
I will include a couple of photos. The wildflowers are blooming and she had fun running in them.
Corinne and Mike,
Just a quick update about our girl. Mabel is doing well and I thank you every day for such a sweet puppy. She spent over two weeks on the boat with us and did fabulous. She was a little nervous at first getting used to all the new noises and smells and also learning what to do when we are busy docking. She charmed the men at the locks when we went into Lake Union in Seattle, they even threw her a milk bone as she stood watch on the bow (I broke off a small piece and threw the rest away??). She was so good for us, using her litter box when needed and letting us know she had to go. She completely won Mike over on this trip.
I wanted to let you know that Mabel had her spay yesterday and she is sporting her post-op attire! My daughter thought she needed something spunky for her recovery and this eliminates the “lampshade”, as we call it. I do not have an actual spay certificate but I can send a copy of my bill if you require any proof. She is doing well, but keeping this active pup quiet for 10 days will be a real challenge!
As you can see we keep her trimmed fairly short, this fits in with our lifestyle better than the longer look. It keeps her cleaner when we hike and easier to dry after a rainy walk when we are on the boat. We get stopped everywhere with people commenting on how cute she is and what a wonderful color. I must say we are smitten. A couple of times while we were walking around in Victoria, Mike would wait outside with Mabel while I popped into a shop. Well all the young ladies would stop and ooh and ahh over Mabel, so Mike as decided she is a great “babe magnet”! ??
I have included some photos, the first is on the boat and the other two are her recovery suit.
I hope that all is well with you and that all your pups are doing great.
