I'm sorry this has taken so long, but we have wanted to share some of our
pictures with you so here they are! Way more than you asked for but then
we're proud puppy owners. I'll let you sort through them to determine which
ones, if any, you'd like to use. I've also included Maggie's original puppy
picture from your website.
Maggie is from Dusty's 6-16-06 litter and she now lives in Woodinville, WA.
At 8 months, she weighs 45 lbs. She has a straight coat and sheds very
little, if any. Great temperament and quick learner. Fairly mellow for a
puppy, and a little bit mischievious. She would like to make friends with
every cat, dog, and person she sees. Unfortunately, no cats have cooperated
yet. She loves her walks and playing outside with her family and
neighborhood dog friends. It is fun to watch her adjust her style of play
to match the personality and size of other dogs. She also likes being a lap
dog with our teenage son and daughter. Maggie has been a wonderful addition
to our household.
We can’t believe 2 1/2years have gone by since we came to pick up Jessie in March of 2007. We’ve since moved to a new house and been quite busy with her and our travel business.
She is absolutely a dream dog! What a personality she has. She was trained to “go” outdoors in - maybe 2 days! She loves everyone, of course doesn’t shed (one of our main reasons for getting her.) The grand kids who are allergic to everything, are fine with her when they come to visit. Playing and having their faces all around hers. Our daughter-in-law who is afraid of dogs absolutely loves her. In fact, Jessie was pictured on THEIR holiday newsletter to show all their friends that it’s true, she WAS near a dog for an extended period of time!
She is truly a retriever and runs to get every ball and Frisbee you throw. She always brings it back, but might not let you have it! She loves to run and is the fastest dog in the dog park. She’s also quite an instigator -if no one will run with her, she absolutely goes over and gets in their face to egg them on! I do most of her trimming and she sits very patiently while I labor away not knowing exactly what I’m doing. We have a neighbor dog, a black lab, who is the same age. You would not believe how they play together. It’s so fun to watch them.
She is so smart we think she understands everything we say to her. Jack said one day “I can’t believe she has never gotten into the T-O-I-L-E-T P-A-P-E-R” For some reason he spelled it out. Not 15 minutes later, she went into the bathroom and came out with the whole role. So we kid that she can spell too!
A pure delight and we have recommended you to others frequently. We were quite hesitant about buying a dog from the internet when we couldn’t see the facility and had read so much about puppy mills. You are so gracious on the phone, and once we arrived we were very impressed with your operation: the cleanliness and above all, your treatment of the adult dogs and puppies.
We hope you and your family are healthy (you had just been hospitalized) and we promise to keep more in touch.
We love her so much and she has added so much to our lives, we can’t thank you enough for your caring and loving atmosphere that you started her with. I really think it carries through to her even now.
Pat and Jack Hazen,
