We have 16 years of on-going references from our families all around B.C and Alberta to as far away as Toronto, Miami and Singapore. Their words speak volumes about us, our dogs and their puppies.
Hi there, Thought I would give you a quick update on Finnegan. He is doing really well, he and Kassidy have bonded, and they are rarely apart (he mopes, and lays by the door when she goes to preschool, he is going to hate Kindergarten in 2010!) It is like we have always had him lol! Funny how quickly that happens. Anyhow, he is thriving and we love him like crazy. Take care, Laurie
I thought I would just drop you a quick note (and a few more pics) to let you know how Finnegan is making out. I think he is doing really well, we are really enjoying him. He sleeps with us, he hasn't liked being in the crate, though I am still putting him in there for the 5 mins I am out taking Kassidy to school or dance class...he seems ok in those short times. He has a good appetite and is still doing well with his litter, only a couple of little accidents. We haven't really tried him outside yet, we are working our way up to that lol! He is so attached to Kassidy he follows her everywhere, and she loves it...always chatting away to him...she is making party hats for the two of them as we speak, I guess they are having a party! She is always trying to teach him new things, using kibble to do it, it is so cute. He has blended into the family well, its like he has always been here, such an easy transition, and we have you guys to thank for that, so thank you! Hope all is well with you, take care and I will send some more updates over the next couple of months if you are interested.
Hi Corinne, Things are going great. Muggles is pretty well behaved. We've started her on training and she knows when to come when we ask her and she's pretty good at staying in one place and not going anywhere until we tell her it's okay to go. It's pretty amazing to see when she's just sitting on a mat dying to get to her food but knows she can't until we tell her she can go. :) She's such a fast learner. Housebreaking is going well. We've taken her litter box away since she has a habit of playing in it after she's done doing her business. That being said, she's now going outside all the time. No accidents. TTYS, Dianna
Hi Corinne: Thought is was time to send you an updated photo of Tango. We are in love with him. He has been such a great addition to our family. Lexi is still his den mother and Brenden is the up and coming trainer. Tango seems to have mastered (I say this with my fingers crossed) house training. This I think is appreciated the most by me. Take good care. Sherry & Crew
Just a few pics. The 1st night he was nervous but what a difference a day makes! He is playing and having a gas with the boys as you can see from the attached file. He is going outside for his business, had a couple small accidents , we have a pad out but he seems to enjoy the grass for his duties !You go right ahead with the pictures…he is a hoot! He goes right to the back door to go out for a pee now. Thanks again….i will keep you up to date!
Hi Corinne, They are all adjusting very well to their new home(s). It’s a little hard separating them right now, so we’re working on it gradually. They LOVE going outside and romp and roll and go absolutely crazy! They cry at little at night but them settle down quite well. The weekend has just flown by! I’ve taken hundreds of pictures of them already! Kristie

Hello again – here are some of Libby and Bandit enjoying the snow…Oh, and no I did not get those pictures of the pups before they left. That would be great if you could send them. Pups are adjusting very well and doing better and better with “potty” training. Abby has learned ‘come’ and ‘down’ already. K.
Yes - the children named the boys. Ajay is now 'Tiger' (we all want to say Tigger but get corrected) and my son named Butters 'Wunjo' (runic Norwegian for 'joy'. They had their second immunization on Saturday and today had a morning at the groomers - a lovely lady who runs a home based grooming studio and gives tons of one on one affection and attention. (I do miss the 'woolly bear' look --- but it will be easier for the summer ---) She gave accolades to your gift of loving socialization of the puppies!!!! She has never met five month old's so well adjusted. 'We won the puppy lottery' is how she put it. I agree.
We have some sunshine but the boys are too tuckered out to enjoy it right now. Big days :) Soon we can take them out to meet more of the big wide world.
Thanks for your support, Corinne
Thanks so much Corinne,
Each day they are getting more and more settled in. I keep thinking how wonderful it is they are together! They love to cuddle and play together in ways that we could not fulfill. My son is in the garden right now and they are bursting with energetic play. They love to play outside and I have spent the better part of yesterday 'fixing' the twig problem. Found the 'offending' shrub and fenced it off from the boys - should make transitions easier for them!
... now I just have to fix the 'muddy places' .... they do love to splash and roll - head to toe. They are truly lovely and so much fun. Soooooo funny about the black berries bushes! Thought this might be more of a puppy situation with their finer hair. Will look into getting puppy cuts (the kids will complain - they love the furry little muff ball look ... but it will grow back:)
Appreciate your support.
Subject: Wunjo and Tiger's day
Here are notes from the boys. They both had a great time today.
Tiger : "I had a great day. I was super happy to be at the lounge and to see my friends. I started off running around with Wunjo but it didn't take me long to start playing with my friends ony own!!! I played with Louize (a very pretty and fun pug) first then with Hunter (a Scottie cross) and then Wilson (another scottie cross). I also played with Tank (another pug) and Roxy (a rat terrier). I did play with Wunjo for a bit when he was playing with our friends. I did well and had a wonderful time! Thanks for taking me to the lounge!"
Wunjo: "I had a great day as well! I was super happy to see my friends and started playing with them as soon as I got in. Felicia calls Mr. Social because I played with every single doggie at the lounge! Everyone wanted to play with me so I played! I even played with a golden retriever named Millie. She is super sweet and loves little dog. I had a wonderful time. Thanks for taking me to the lounge!"
Have a great week! Hope to see the boys next Tuesday!

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to update you on how your lovely pup is doing! We decided to name her Chloe, and she is so loved by all of us! Here are some pix of her pre and post hair cut! Everywhere we go people fall in love with her and ask us where we got her.
I have given your website out to a number of people!!!! She has settled in really nicely. She loves playing with the girls and she also loves all other people! When we take her for a walk, she is desperate to get pats from people on the street. She still uses her litter box occasionally, but she is really good about doing her business when she is on a walk. We loved the fact that she came litter box trained. I don't know how you did it, but it was so
helpful in the transition of going from not having a dog to having one. We have been teaching her a few commands and she is pretty good at: sit, stay, come, leave it, off and "in your bed". Izzy and I are taking her to puppy classes that the local pet store, Tisol, puts on. They start in two weeks time. We are still feeding her the Blue puppy food, and she really likes it. She is growing fast, so she is thriving. Thank you for raising such a wonderful puppy. Everywhere we go people comment on how calm and good she is. The groomer told us she has never seen a puppy as good as her in all her years of grooming. People just love her and we feel so fortunate to have found you and your lovely pups!
Hope you are well, and we'll update you periodically.
A quick up-date on Sadie. She had her last shot the other day and a clean bill of health. I tied a bell to the door handle, and every time she has to do her business, she rings it. It only took her about 2 days to figure it out. When I took her out at the beginning I would take her paw and hit the bell. What a smart puppy she is. Also I was stopped by a lady at the ferry terminal on Tues., we were headed for Victoria, and we had Sadie with us, she went crazy over Sadie and wanted your e-mail address as she was interested in getting one of your pups. I gave it to her so she may be contacting you. Hope that is O.K. with you.
Sorry I have taken so long in getting an update for you on Sadie. She is doing just great. What a character she is, and such a joy. We spend more time laughing at her antics. We took her to the Vet for her shot on Friday and she is in good health,. I am waiting to hear from the groomer as I want to get her face trimmed and an orientation with the groomer. The Vet suggested to do this. The groomer I have chosen specializes in small dogs and has come highly recommended. She is not sleeping with us anymore. She is now sleeping in here crate by our bed and is doing great. She is awesome on the leash and loves the outdoors. She has the odd pee accident in the house but only twice in the past week. She pretty well goes outside. She loves tramping through the woods. I'm sending you a couple of pictures of her in the snow. She was having a ball. Also one with our Son and Daughter-in-law's dog who is named IZZY, just like Sadie's Mom. I haven't had a chance to look up your store e-mail, but will do that in the near future. Thank again for Sadie, we just love her.
Hello, Just wanted to take a moment and update you on Tobey. He's doing great and is a really sweet little dog. Did a great job at puppy classes and has a really nice disposition. I've had lots of compliments on him and love him dearly. Sorry I haven't sent you any pictures or contact you sooner. Busy summer! Thanks so much for the great addition to our family!

WE LOVE HIM DEARLY! HIS PERSONALITY IS AMAZING...SUCH A HAPPY LITTLE GUY! THANK YOU AGAIN CORINE AND MIKE OUR MR. KASEY HAS MADE OUR HOME A REAL HOME!! WE ARE SMILING!
Hi it’s me “MR. KASEY”…..himself!!!
I am very happy in my new home. My mom and dad love me soooooooo much!!!! We have been traveling a lot …on the ferry, then on the winding roads, then in different motels and I am a very, very good boy!!!! My mom brings my litter box and it works every where I go. Oh, I also go outside on my lead. I am not allowed out, just a little, as I get my final shots on July 18th and then I can venture out a bit more. I am gaining weight…by now I think I weigh 8 lbs. How big do you think I will be? Mom likes the 10 – 11 lbs area? Dad would like me to be the MACHO MAN. I play all the time, I can sit, come, stay, go down and I’m great on the lead. It took a while but I finally like to go with mom on the lead (only in special areas). A funny story about my mom and me. It was my bed time and mom took me into the bedroom and told me to go to bed in my little crate (which I love)….BUT….. I wouldn’t go into my crate, I looked at mom, then I barked, and looked at mom again, and again, and again and then looked into my crate (but I wouldn’t go inside). I did this around 5 times in a row and my mom FINALLY GOT MY MESSAGE!!! She went to the dryer and pulled out my fuzzy yellow duck that I sleep with (can you believe she had washed my duck) She put the duck in my crate and I went in and went to sleep. Sometimes it takes mom a while to understand me….and me to understand her….BUT….we are having so much fun. My mom sees that the little girl is still available and I would love to have her come and live with us….but I will have to wait until maybe next year for a brother or sister. Hi to you and I just want you to know that mom and dad are so happy I am with them. It is like I have been here forever!!!
Hi it’s me again. Kasey. I know you have so many other families that you talk to too…but I just had to share a few things.
I saw the Vet a few days ago and she loved me too and wanted to know who the breeder was, so mom just happened to have your card. She thinks I’m perfect very smart and in perfect health. I went through the whole exam without a whimper (even when she stuck that thing up my butt) WHATEVER FOR????
My mom is worried that I’m eating too much. The Vet said two tablespoons 3 times a day…(Mom gives me a little bit more)…because I am really hungry. I poop and piddle just like a good boy…but I do like my food and of course the occasional treats. I will sit when my mom tells me too. Today, I wanted more food after my feeding and mom didn’t give me more. Soooooooooo….I jumped and scratched on the plastic food box that holds my food. That didn’t work either!!! Sooooooooo….I picked up my small plastic food dish and brought it to her. That did it for sure! She gave me a little bit more and I am happy! I weighed 4 ½ pounds at the Vet and mom weighed me at home and says I weigh a whopping 5 lbs (I think a little bit more now).
Anyway, when you have time and I know you are busy…could you let me know about the food please. My mom still checks your website to see how everyone is doing. I am very, very HAPPY here! Thank you for approving of my mom and dad.
Love, Kasey XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
