We have 17 years of on-going references from our families all around the world from Vancouver B.C Canada, Calgary, Edmonton Alberta to as far away as Toronto, Miami, Palm Springs, Italy and Singapore.
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.
Thank you so much for reassuring us that Zuchon's are a wonderful addition to a family with a larger dog - they couldn't be a better match for each other. They play together, sleep together, eat together
Hi Corinne and Mike
First - I have to apologize for the late update on our fabulous little puppy, Smudge!! We absolutely love her and so does her big sister Luna (who, by the way, still cleans Smudge's face twice a day).
She is healthy, happy and loved….
We were concerned about getting a small dog because of our VERY energetic portuguese water dog, Luna…we thought Luna might squish her or think of her as a play toy! Thank you so much for reassuring us that Zuchon's are a wonderful addition to a family with a larger dog - they couldn't be a better match for each other. They play together, sleep together, eat together and even poop at pretty much the same moment…lol …TRUE!! Smudge can be assured of having a very thorough ''signature facial by Luna", every morning and evening …and Luna can be assured of having her head pounced on by Smudge whenever she is in a deep sleep. Nickolas is in bliss now that he has a smaller dog to play with …he plays fetch with her and talks with her like she's his little baby…she loves it! He seems to be paying more attention to Luna now also, as I think Smudge has given him the confidence he needed to become higher up on the hierarchy list :). I often catch Greg snuggling up with his Smudgy - he has given up hiding the fact that he has a huge soft spot for her!! Tough guy - I think not. She fit in to our family immediately. There was no integration time - amazing - as if she has been with us for years. We took both Luna and Smudge sailing with us for 3 weeks up to Desolation Sound etc and she was a natural ! So easy on the boat and she loved running around the islands, digging in the dirt and sand and swimming….I could go on and on and on, but I think I've made my point! Thank you so much for letting Smudge join our family…we can't imagine life without her :)
I am sending along some pictures.
Tanya, Greg, Nickolas, Luna and Smudge xoxoxo
