  Horsing Out

 

I still check in on your website every now & then, so many beautiful dogs! I love the red outside litter you have on there now. I added a couple other photos, one is of him pigging out with the horses, he really loves them. The other is where we can find him when we're loading the car. He's always ready to go! Thank you again and again for this wonderful boy! Life just wouldn't be the same without him.

  Koda

 

Hi Wanda! It's been almost 3 years since we brought Koda (Denver) home! He's super smart and always willing to please. We've done a little backyard agility & he picks it all up so fast. He has even figured out how to get the mini horses to give him a belly rub! We will be visiting nursing homes again this year. As rambunctious as he can be, he sure minds and calms down when there are little kids or elderly around. Just wanted to drop you a note, looks like all is well. Hope you have a great year!

Abby is doing Fantastic!! She got to meet everyone for Easter and stole the show. She is soooo sweet and soooo intelligent, a stunning girl inside and out!! We are absolutely in love with her.

 

She has settled in nicely and last night slept the entire night through. Right now she's with me in my office (more her room now:), happily playing with her toys.

 

Thank you so much!!

  Schmidty

 

Schmidty, aka Spur, is doing just great! We have been to the dog park everyday for the past five days and he just LOVES it there. He is very social with the other dogs and comes as soon as we call him. We took him to obedience class and he excelled! He will be spending a lot of time at my cabin this summer so I will have to send you lots of pictures!!!

  Griffin

 

Hi Wanda! I wanted to send you an update on Griffin. He has been such a great addition to our family and we are so happy to have such a sweet puppy. He loves every person, kid, and dog he meets. We have a 3 year old niece and she and Griffin are best friends. We even taught him to play hide and seek with her (he sits and stays while she hides, then he runs and finds her). It's adorable! He also loves playing in the snow and going to the dog park. Today we celebrated his 1st birthday! I added a family picture for you to see him grown. He is a very loved pup! Hope all is well with you and your family. We occasionally check out the new liters on your website and wish we had the space for another pup to love!

 

Take care
Ashlee, Kirk, and Griffin

Hello Wanda

 

Hope all is well with you, your family and your Aussies! Golly Willa and her brother Jack simply can't wait for Spring to really finally arrive.

 

She is doing GREAT and fits right in! I am so happy with her - she's still a little one only 14 pounds but loads of fun and such a snuggler! Can't wait for her puppy teeth to go as she's chewing all the soft toys to bits! She's getting spayed next month and the Vet is just thrilled with her progress.

 

She just passed level one obedience and starts level two at the end of April. I included a picture here for you so you could see her progress.

 

Again thank you so much! She's a treasure!

 

With Thanks!

Hello!! Wanted to let you know Mara and Tyson recently were awarded 12th in the nation in UKC top junior obedience for 2013 and were invited to their national top junior invitational in Kalamazoo Michigan in June! She's pretty excited to show her little Tyson at it. They are doing fantastic showing and recently she showed him for their first time in rally -- they won with a perfect score of 100!! She's been working consistently on her utility training and have recently started on the articles with him. He gives her every ounce he can!!!! I cannot tell you how many people adore him and I refer to you for the best little Aussies ever!!!!

Hope all is well with you and your family and pups!!

Take care!!

Willa
January 31, 2Willa014

Life has been wonderful with Willa (formerly Rayna) and yet really busy in all other areas.

 

After a week I finally settled on a full name for her....Sandy Creeks Willow in the Wicket .... Willa for short. She is simply lovely! Her big brother Jackson loves her! Let's her sleep near him when not I her kennel. Plays with her often and lets her sniff gently when he wants to be left alone.

 

They are doing GREAT together! My roommates Bichon Frise has been slower to warm up to Willa but is now kind of playing with her once in a while. My parents three smooth coat Collies all play with her whenever we are visiting them. She's had a couple puppy play classes already and did great! She starts training school officially on the 15th of February.

 

My vet who also has Aussies thought she was adorable and a great puppy. She got her second vaccination yesterday and did GREAT.

 

She is just a joy! Thank you so much for all the love and care you put into your pups Wanda! It makes a HUGE difference! When Jack passes I will definitely be coming back to you! I am just tickled with Willa. She is just 8 pounds now - still a little one but simply adorable!

Flynn
January 30, 2Flynn014

Hello!!

 

Flynn's 1 year birthday is this month. He is only 13.5 pounds, technically a "Toy" Aussie, yes? We LOVE his size - he is so mobile and easy to carry when needed!

 

He has a great personality: loves to exercise (especially frisbee), takes care of his 13 chickens and 4 children, loves to camp (2 weeks in Montana this summer), and is very serious about his evening play time!

 

Flynn keeps telling me he wants another Mini Aussie in the house to play with, but he doesn't tell his Dad because he isn't so sure how that will go. If we were to get another, we would get one from you! Flynn was practically "trained" when he arrived! He was a well-adjusted - an already social pup!

 

Thank you so much for one of the best dogs I have ever owned!

 

P.S. The attached photo is when he was 7-months old. We took a trip to Montana with 4 of our children. Flynn was a natural!

 

Warmly,

Lisa

Roxzyn

 

Hello!!

We are doing great!! Roxzyn is amazing and we love him very much! He has a awesome personality and smart a a whip and loves to test the waters to see what he can get away with!!!

 

Roxzyn is in puppy classes and he is the start student and a very quick learner. The funniest thing is when all the puppy's are running around playing with each other in class Roxzyn is more interested going up to each person to see if he can mooch a treat. He is very obsessed with food!!!

 

He is an absolute a joy and were so lucky to have him in our lives!!

 

Have a Great day!

Suzette
January 12, 2014

 

Suzette - (who will be Winnie or Stella in her new Maine life) , is a winner! What a lovely dog.

 

She is already learning things- has made lots of new friends, seems perfect mix of curious and careful, and friendly and easily handled - You ( and parents genetics) did a great job -- I am really crate training and taking her everywhere - She'll do a little puppy work on Tuesday we got a thaw so that is easier than the single digits and below My daughter is clicker training already ( just gently positively reinforcing - we know that Winnie has had a long weekend. She is eating and drinking - Maybe has a little motion sickness on full stomachs in car, but peppy and looks absolutely fine re the wear of the air plane.

 

Mom absolutely loves Paris

Hi Wanda,

Just wanted to check in and let you know Tande (we call her Kitty) is growing up into such a great little dog. She is very active, loves to run and jump. At the dog park someone had commented that she looks like a good lap dog, she just loves to run laps! I thought you might like a photo of her in action :) Hope you and the dogs are doing well!

 

All the best,

Hi Wanda,

 

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I wanted to share some pictures of (Solo) Roxzyn with you.

 

We are so blessed to have Roxzyn as part of out family! He is such a joy and everything I could ever hope for! He is so intelligent and always watching to see what we are going to do next and makes sure he does not miss ANYTHING!! We are working on his chewing which he thinks everything other then his $60 worth of squeaky, chewy, fun, colorful toys is more fun to chew on ~ arms, hands, shoes, paper, ect. Were making progress ~

 

Roxzen is such a quick learned on other things as he already knowing what outside/potty means and runs right to the door and he will even go sit by the door and bark when he needs to go out J He will never miss a meal and is always looking for seconds. I put a medium size rock in his bowl to help slow his eating down.

 

With being so busy with the holidays we wonít start puppy classes until January and know Roxzyn will love them.

 

Thank you so much for the most precious little boy ever!

Timber

December 4, 2013

 

Timber

 

Hi Wanda,

 

So good to hear from you! Timber is just an amazing pup! He has gone through 3 classes of obedience and picked up on the commands, tricks, etc quickly. Brian and Tiber will be starting beginning agility in January.

 

He loves to run but is very well behaved on a leash. He is still very cuddly and gets along well with kids in the neighborhood. He loves to sleep on top of our bed flat out on his back!

 

Timber and little half-brother Flynn (Mike and LisaĒs pup) get together and still play and wrestle despite their size differences. Timber is about 31 lbs and I think Flynn is about 13!

 

We've found a good no-cage doggie day care in Burnsville (Woof-Dah) where he has gone when we've flown out of state. He seems to enjoy it there and pulls on his leash to get inside when we arrive there.

 

How are you doing? I was just on your website last week looking at the new pups! Looks like you have been very busy with pups and shows.

 

Have a great holiday season and keep in touch!

Hey Wanda,

 

Hope you had a good thanksgiving! Finley has been amazing!! At 9 weeks he's already house trained, and he knows how to sit, shake, and lay down. We couldn't have asked for a better, more well behaved puppy than Finley.

 

Thanks again,

Rocky a.k.a.Broker
August 27, 2013

 

Well, I don't know if you will believe this, but he has not pottied in the house yet. Love his personality: outgoing, reserved with strangers, but willing to meet them. On agility equipment in back yard. Started with basic drop, sit stay, heel. Real willing. Recall will be great. He flies! Raised teeter to 6 inches at fulcrum. No fear. But seriously, 5 a.m. on Saturday!!! and stayed up. He still occasionally cries in crate, but not bad. Has been to Home Depot. He did good. Work with Dremel on nails. No problem. Boy, I sound like a proud mommy. Sooo pathetic!! LOL Will keep you updated.

Good morning Wanda! Everything is going great so far. Tande is adjusting nicely, she hardly cried at all on the ride home yesterday. We had a full morning of playing in the yard already. Now it is nap time :) I will send you some pictures I took of her this morning. Thanks for checking in!!

Hi Wanda!

I think our lil smokey/roper is so amazing! He is smart, beautiful, bright and cuddly. Great temperament. He just came in and immediately started relaxing & acting as if he's been here forever!

 

Rocky a.k.a. Broker

Rocky

 

Hi Wanda!

He checked out house immediately. He loves Sassy. They play well together. He potties outside. Little bit of crying last night-nothing serious. No submissive peeing. He is reall happy in house! I really like this personality. You nailed it right! Thanks!!
Carol

 

UPDATE:
OK, now, this isn't supposed to happen, but I took him to a friends house. She has two young children and a mini aussie. We were there for 4 hours, and if she had money she would be calling you about a puppy. He is just so confident and easy to be around. Good with kids and played with other dog. It will be a breeze to train him.

Hi Wanda! Just wanted to drop you a note and some photos of our wonderful puppy! Fin is growing fast and experiencing all sorts of adventures. We started obedience class and she is a star, very calm and focused. She's been out on boats, around campfires, lots of kids, and some baseball games. You were right, she is quite the attraction. Everywhere we go people ask about her, she is very outgoing and let's everyone pet her. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!

Good Morning Wanda - I hope this finds you well.  Pepper is doing great.
She started her classes on Tuesday night and she was a star.  The kids are
doing a good job with their "homework."  She is getting lots of love and I
have to believe is very happy.  Now that Tom and the kids are home with her
fulltime, she is wiped out and ready for sleep by the time I get home from
work!  I saw your pictures of the new puppies.  Congratulations!  Thank you
ever so much again for our girl. 

 

Take care, Michelle

Flynn

 

Hi Wanda,

 

Just wanted to send you a few pictures of Flynn!  I can't believe how fast he is growing, it's amazing to look back on the photos we took when we first got him and compare them to now!  He has been doing really well in his puppy training classes, he graduated from level 1 two weeks ago, and we just started intermediate last weekend.  He is so smart, picks up on things very quickly!  When we take him to classes on the weekends, he gets so much attention and everyone asks about him, and of course he loves all of the attention he gets!   

 

I can't thank you enough for Flynn.  He instantly became apart of our family and we couldn't be happier.  We are having the time of our lives with him and he sure is having fun too!

 

Thanks again,

 

Bill and Jes

Hello Wanda 

 

Bear has been the best. Every day he surprises me with his learning capabilties and how his loyalty contnues to grows. He is always ready to help out and Is happy & ready to have a great time. People are draw to his looks and fun personality wherever we go. In a group of people or other animals he adjusts his behavior appropriate to the individual or animal. Big, little, short, or tall he loves the all.

 

He completes us as a family. Thank you for helping us pick him.

LeRoy
May 10, 2013

Hi Wanda!

 

Just wanted to send ya a couple new pix. LeRoy continues to be a wonderful addition to our family! I taught him "sit" in about four minutes! So smart.

 

He and Benjamin are the best of friends. Have an AUSSome weekend! Claire

 

LeRoy

 

 

We're enjoying Spring!

 

LeRoy

 

 

Leray went on his first Big Boy walk April 28, 2013! Benjamin, Aunty Hannah, Leroy & I walked to the coffee shop! He was GREAT on the leash! Only stopped to pee.

 

He did ride home in the stroller basket; it's a long walk for a lil guy! Like I said, Leroy & Benjamin spend a lot of time together, and when I do dinner-most nights-they eat together, too. The pup does SO well not snatching the Baby's food! He is a MUCH better listener than Benjamin!

 

Take care, and thanks again!

 

Claire

 

LeRoy

 

LeRoy

 

LeRoy's a great family dog, but he's really bonded with the baby, Benjamin. They're pretty much best friends & constant companions! I have to tell the BOTH of them, several times each day, "Leave him alone!" And "Please don't eat that, it's his!" Lol!

 

Anyhow, at Aden's school today, a group that works with him called Canine Inspired Change did a show; the dog Aden worked with was an Aussie, and the woman also had a Mini Aussie! So cool! We are talking about getting into therapy dog work!

 

Claire

 

PS. Thank you so much for trusting me & allowing us to bring this pup home on "layaway." He's made our home & family better already.

Griffin
May 4, 2013

Hi Wanda!

 

I just wanted to give you an update on Griffin. He is doing great and is up to 9 pounds! He LOVES people and is the friendliest little puppy! Everyone he meets just loves him. We've been able to socialize him with lots of other dogs so he is very good with other dogs as well. Our neighborhood is filled with dogs so we usually meet 1-2 on our walks.  He is becoming a good listener the more we work with him, and we are starting obedience classes next week to work on better focus. He is such a sweet little guy and we love having him as part of our family! Hope everything is well with you and your family!

Just wanted to fill you in on our little Barritt - he's doing awesome. We love him to pieces.  He had his last round of shots this week, and is healthy, growing perfectly and is sweet as pie.  He is a star at puppy school, and is learning some fun frisbee tricks already!  I've attached a few pics for you to see him -  he's all smiles, and we are too.  

 

Hope all is well for you and the new litter!

He looked too cute snoozing after a long walk and play time.

 

Thanks,

Emily

Hi Wanda,

 

We've had a great first day! He cried for a bit in the car as we drove away, but calmed down after about 20 minutes and did great. Got home, he explored the house, we took him around the neighborhood for a walk, played, he ate, pooped, and played some more, walked some more and all systems are working! He's doing awesome. He did pretty well for his first night too - and we both spent a lot of time this morning and now he's exhausted! I think we're tiring him out.

 

I will certainly keep you posted on how things are going! He's just a love - we are so happy. Thank you again for all your help, and for being so flexible with our crazy schedule yesterday! Talk to you soon .

 

Thanks, Emily

Hi Wanda,

 

What a great puppy, so smart, he has learned several tricks already.

 

We get compliments on him everywhere we go, and he goes with us all the time.

 

Thanks Wanda for raising such a well mannered puppy.

Tazor i's doing great! He is so smart. We had him ringing the bell to go outside after showing him just a couple times. We absolutely love him!

 

Flynn

Hi Wanda,


Flynn is doing great! He passed his first Vet check up with flying colors, and everyone that sees him stops to say how beautiful his colors are! We are having so much fun. He's doing well with potty training, the accidents are getting few and far between. We will start puppy obedience this Saturday, and we are looking forward to that!

Bill's Puppy

 

Hi Wanda:

 

Just wanted to let you know our puppy is doing great. She is already going to the door at times and whining to go out, which is great. She LOVES the snow. She is doing pretty good walking on a leash and she slept in bed with my son until 7 this morning with no accidents.

 

On Friday we took a nap and she adjusted so well that she was asleep on the bed next to me, spread eagle on her back, not a care in the world.

We went to the vet on Friday they said everything looks great. She weighed 7.5 pounds. There was ZERO nervousness at the vet, she even crawled under the exam table and went to sleep while people came and went. She has played with several neighborhood dogs too!

 

As she gets bigger I will send you some pictures. I have attached a picture that was taken this weekend in our back yard.

Bill's Puppy

 

HI Wanda,

 

Things are going great! He's absolutely perfect! He whimpered for a few minutes in the car after we left, but took a nap most of the way home. He's had a few accidents in the house, but has been doing really well going to the bathroom outside. He's been eating every time we have fed him, and is just a little ball of energy! His first night in the crate when really well, he whimpered for a few minutes after i left him but slept through the night. Last night when we put him to bed it sounded like he was up more often and cried a little bit, but we held strong and didn't let him out until this morning. We have his wellness check up in a few hours this morning, I will let you know how that goes. We are having so much fun!

 

Thanks Wanda,

 

Bill

 

P.S. I attached a picture of him when we got home yesterday afternoon, i hope you can see it ok. He was pretty tuckered out after playing with all of his new toys!

Hey Ms Wanda,

 

My name is Emella from Kaplan, Louisiana and I purchased autumn (now Bree) a red Merle female from you approx 3 years ago.

 

I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful addition to my family. I cannot express how much Bree means to me! She is truly a blessing and once again;

 

Thank You !!

Hey Wanda!

I haven't sent you an email lately. Looks like you have a farm full of
puppies! How awesome! And Kojack, yay you!!! I am trying to convince my
husband to let me add one of Roxy's pups to our family, but he's not caving
:) oh how I still love that girl!

Koda (Denver) is doing great! We've been going to Focus & Self Control
classes at Bonafide Dog Academy in Omaha or the last 6 weeks and he's so
smart and quick to learn, such a joy to work with & be around. I Attached a
picture of him with my year old daughter, he shared his toys & knows not to
grab them out of hands of kids! Leaps and bounds! Next week we will be
starting Happy Herders class which is basic obedience. After that we're
going for the CGC! I hope to get rolling in agility this summer and fall. I
can't believe he's almost 2!

Hi Wanda. I just wanted to let you know Simone (now named Nala) is doing great.

 

She is sweet and full of love.

 

She is doing good in agility and frisbee. She learns fast and is very well behaved.

 

We are very happy with her.

 

 

 

 

Roper
January 16, 2013

 

Hi Wanda, he is great! He sits and will shake on command. He picks up things so quick... My beagle is just too stubborn. Even on our walks he walks right alongside me. His favorite though is when I let him lay on the bed, he doesn't know he's suppose to be at the foot of the bed yet. He just wants to be within petting distance.

 

 

Timber
January 14, 2013

Happy CustomerTimber is wonderful! He got his bortetello vaccine nose spray and nails clipped this weekend because he starts his puppy class Tuesday night!

 

His legs are getting long!

 

On first Lake Harriet walk. We met so many people and pups that we took him on the snow covered ice on the way back so he could run a bit off leash ...and get back without too many interruptions!

 

Mornings are spent under my chair at work before heading out for a walk at lunch.

Jester

Jester is doing great! He is an excellent companion for my 11 year old son. Jester is a very smart dog and catches on quickly. His favorite toy is the frisbee, he does amazing jumps when catching it. He is very friendly with people and other pets. He has grown into a very beautiful dog.

 

 

Lotty
January 4, 2013

Lotty

Hi Wanda. One year ago this week, we brought little Lotty home with us and
life hasn't been the same since! We call her Willow and she's the love of
our lives! What a special little dog she is. A very quick learner and so
willing. She understands an extensive vocabulary and sometimes I forget
she's a dog! She never went through the typical puppy behavior of getting
into things or chewing. She's always had lots of her own toys and that's all
she totes around. She potty trained easily. She's a great house dog and can
be left free to roam the whole house without an accident for up to 12 hours!
She loves to go to the park, on walks, and for rides in the car. She's an
amazing frisbee dog! She has gotten lots of attention from friends and
neighbors and my 2 young grandchildren think she's a bundle of fun. She's
been such a joy. I've had many dogs in my lifetime but none as special as
Willow is.

Thank you for giving her such a good start! Thought you'd enjoy seeing a
picture I took of her today. Happy New Year!

 

 

Timber

Timber

Well, it's been almost 2 weeks since we picked up our little Timber! He is just a great addition to our family. He is so cuddly and smart. Thanks to you he has slept through the night since we brought him home and is 99% potty trained. We will be starting puppy classes next week.

 

He truly gave us a Merry Christmas!

 

Thank you and Happy New Year

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Odyssey (Jordee)
August 19, 2012

Odyssey    Odyssey

Just wanted to give you a quick update on Odyssey and send some photos! He's doing fantastic. Potty training is going really well. He can hold it for quite a while unless he drinks a bunch. He now sleeps through the night with no whining or accidents. We are working on some commands. He already knows "off", "sit", and "lay down." He's a fast learner.

 

He's been taking many trips to the dog park and has gone to puppy play time at Petco. He was timid at first but is starting to come out of his shell and run around with the other dogs. The children in our neighborhood come over almost daily to play with Odyssey and he's great with them. Overall, he's a sweet and fun little addition to our family, and we couldn't be happier!

 

Jester
August 16, 2012

Wanda - first I want to tell you that Jester is a wonderful puppy, great to train, picks up very quickly.

 

Thank you!

 

Odyssey
August 15, 2012

His new name is Odyssey. He's doing fantastic, still no accidents since the first hour I brought him home. He only got up twice last night. Tonight I'm shooting for once. He's a smart little guy.

 

Little story; went to Pet Smart yesterday and from the front door through the store and then to the parking lot two or more people at a time would stop me and bear. I only let four people pet him, and the rest of the people i held him to greet them, and he loved them all and they loved him. people wanted to take picture, so i told them to go to your website and look for the available puppies left. Great job on the puppies Wanda.

 

Thanks!

 

 

LeonardoLeonardo
August 11, 2012

Just wanted to let you know how wonderful gable is. We changed his name to Leonardo (Leo).

 

He is absolutely perfect for us and we couldn't love him more. He is such a good puppy and is constantly getting praised by whomever we run into at the park or on the street.

 

He is so willing to learn and the bigger he gets, the more he loves to cuddle!

 

 

 

Emma (Update)
August 1, 2012

EmmaJust wanted to share a couple more pictures and stories with you! Emma is still doing great... we have noticed she has become a lot more accustomed to her home and much more relaxed, of course still lots of puppy energy and playful. Last Friday Joe brought her in to visit my co-workers, who are all dog lovers, and our social media team took pictures of her with some of our products and posted it on Facebook. She was the most popular post on Facebook that my company has ever had (I have attached this picture). We also took her to St. Cloud on Friday afternoon/night to meet Joe's family and she met close to 20 new people. She was SO good I couldn't believe it. Slept in the car all the way there and home and very friendly to each and every person, even the one year old kids who are still learning how to pet dogs :)

EmmaThen my little sister came to visit on Saturday with her boyfriend. They wanted to go shopping at the Mall of America, but after meeting her decided they just wanted to spend more time with her than shopping! The other attached photo is my little sister with Emma, who also posted this on Facebook and immediately had over 30 friends like the photo. Emma is definitely a popular little girl and is such a lover :) Life was definitely good before, but she has been such a fun, vibrant addition to our family that now I can't picture life without her! We love her very much. Thanks again so much Wanda.

Emma
August 1, 2012

Emma

She is doing wonderful! We are giving her lots of love and she's done very well with going potty outside. Only a couple small accidents. She seems to be warming up to our place and is so fun and playful! She even loves the bed we bought her and is already playing fetch. She has been very warm and loving to the people we've had come over and I'm looking into puppy training classes to sign her up for.

 

Thank you so much again for everything. She is a doll! Oh and she is very very smart! Has already learned so much in her day and a half here!

 

 

Tonto
August 1, 2012

Everything is fantastic with Tonto! He's so much fun to have around. He really likes running around the back yard and playing with our Chihuahua. They are both the same size (right now anyway) so they've been rolling around and playing like brothers.

 

 

Tiki
August 1, 2012

All is very well! Tiki is a wonderful little girl. Sheís just about completely potty trained already! We canít believe how smart she is. She has learned a couple of commands and we are going to talk to a trainer this weekend. She is very much loved Ė thatís for sure. Our 2 year old calls Tiki her sweetie pie and loves her so much.

 

Thank you for checking in Wanda. Iíll try to keep in touch and send pictures when I can.

 

We love her very much. Thank you!

Dear Wanda,

Just a quick note and updated photo of Frankie, my wonderful freckle-faced
boy. Frank is my constant companion. He has such gentle, sweet ways and is
a joy in every way. Training is coming along, his health is A1 and I think
he has topped off growing at about 26#.

Thank you, again, for the wonderful work you do through your excellent
breeding program. Gary and I sincerely appreciate all the background work
you have done to produce such incredible puppies.

Have a very happy summer!
Karen

Hi Wanda,

We just thought you might like to see some pictures of Chester growing. We love him so much and are so grateful to have him. He is a wonderful dog with a fun personality. He is very affectionate and not afraid of much. We finished puppy school with him in February, he did very well.

 

Hope you are doing well!

Hi Wanda,

Here's a few pictures of Hannah! She's doing great! She and Mitzi could play all day long I think. We're still working on the leash and potty training, but she's getting it. We're also working on some tricks. She can sit, shake and lay down. Very smart puppy! Thank you so much for another wonderful addition to our family, we couldn't be happier. Best wishes as always!

Hello Wanda, just thought I would drop a quick note to say hello and to share a current photo of Toby with you.

 

We have been doing one year of agility training now and he really enjoys it. He had a check up in January and is in good health.

 

Toby really loves to run fast, chase balls, try to herd the squirrels in the backyard, and chew on his bones non-stop.

 

I always enjoy watching Toby play with another Aussie, they are like two peas in a pod.

Hello Wanda!

 

Happy New Year, dear lady. Gary and I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and the 2012 brings you much peace of mind, happiness and good health. In addition, best wishes for another successful year of breeding and raising your gorgeous dogs! :-)

 

Well, all about Frankie...

 

He is a remarkably bright little guy and, sincerely, the light of my days! His follow up with the Vet was this morning. I am pleased to report he is in perfect health! Yes, today he weighs 10.6#. His trip to Arizona was incredible. Our flight there was with one stop over in CO. He did not make a peep on the first leg of the flight. In CO we pottied him and gave him a little exercise break. On the second leg of the flight, he was also silent. Just perfect.

 

My family LOVES him! He was everyone's focus the entire week of Christmas. My 16 year old niece, Annie, who is a huge animal lover, actually said, "He is THE cutest dog I've ever seen." She is not an easy one with the compliments, so I was delighted at her observation. Mikey, my 18 year old nephew and Godson, wanted to keep him. Needless to say, Frank ate up all the love and attention.

 

Our trip home was direct. Frankie slept the entire 3 hours...not a peep. I've never had such an easy pup. All is well and he is flourishing. I am attaching a photo on his beautiful little freckled-face that was taken on Christmas Day. He is even larger and cuter now, two and a half weeks later. :-)

 

Warmest regards,

Karen

Hello Wanda, My name is Brynn and I got Cynder from you in 2010 and thought you might like to see some pics of her. She is an amazing dog and is very loved. My fiance has trained her to be quite the frisbee enthusiast. She has brought so much joy to us, our family, and friends.

 


Holly

January 3, 2012

Hi Wanda. Our new puppy is awesome !!!! We just wanted you to know how pleased we are with Knight (we renamed him Alto).

 

We are getting to know each other better and he is so smart! He is not totally potty trained yet - but the accidents are getting fewer. They often happen when I am not attentive to him. He is subtle. He destroys MUCH less than I anticipated (I know that could still change). I have tried some shaping training with him (new to me) and so far he can sit, stay, heel, come, and lay down! Super fun for both of us!

 

If you ever need to use me as a reference please feel free.

 

Thanks again!

I wanted to give you a brief update on my sweet little "big" guy Bodee. He is a wonderful addition to our family. He has really taken to doggy daycare he is wonderful with a bath and blow dry and he really takes easy to being trained. I take him for a daily walk at York beach, ME and he loves running all over my fields here. Short story, as I was walking him at the beach yesterday I ran into a friend I hadn't seen for awhile. I introduced Bodee to him and my friend said Kim do you know what Bodee stands for? He said it means awaken heart from the Indians. For me hearing that and having bought Bodee makes perfect sense. I really feel as if my heart has been "awaken" since I met Bodee. Thanks again Wanda and Hope you have a wonderful New Years.

BunnyHappy New Year, Wanda! I thought that I'd drop you a quick note to let you know how well Bunny (now named Stella :-) is doing in our family. The kids were thrilled when we surprised them with the puppy on Christmas morning -- completely shocked, and super excited!! Stella is the best! She's doing really well with house training, and she does a great job playing with the kids and other dogs that we've been around. She's an impressive sleeper too -- she hasn't whined at night, and wakes once to go out. We're so lucky! We're totally enamored with Stella, and she's already an established part of our family. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of her, and helping by answering all of our questions over the last few weeks. Hope you had a happy holiday! Jen

Hi Wanda!

I just wanted to let you know that Frankie is doing extremely well. Potty training is coming along, with still no #2 accidents and only a few #1's. Tomorrow I am getting a bell, as you suggested, for our door.

Frankie is truly the apple of my eye and has made our house a home once again. Sofia is loving him and the two play constantly.

Wanda, I cannot thank you enough for all the love, knowledge and care you put into your breeding program. We adore your puppy.

 

Warmest regards.

Winchester

Winchester At HomeThis puppy sure is loved! It was so fun to watch him play in the first snow yesterday. He loved "helping" people shovel the driveway. He would run up and chase people until they had a shovel full of snow and then he would jump up onto it and just sit there- it was pretty cute. Here are a few of the many pictures that have been taken of the little guy in the past few days. Thank you again for this beautiful puppy, and for all the hard work you put into taking care of and training him!

TulsaHi Wanda...Tulsa is doing amazing!!!!! We have been working hard with him! He can sit, lay down, stay, shake, roll over, sit pretty! Just the last weekend he started catching the frisbee and jumping through a
hoolahoop! He is unbelievably smart! He also has the best temperament! I can't say enough good things about him! Rosie and him get along famously!! All of my family and friends are waiting for your new litters to arrive!! Heheh they all LOVE him. Everytime I got to my parents, in-laws, friends they beg me to bring him!!! We have also trained him off the leash! He has been to soccer games, pool party, and many places where has has been well socialized!! We feel so unbelievably blessed to have him!

We can't thank you enough! Hope all is well.

 


Brady
Late Summer 2011

Hi Wanda,
Hope all is well with you. Saw on your website that you have a new batch of cute puppies! Wish we could pick up a playmate for Brady!! One is enough I think. Anyway, he is doing just great and we love him. Such a nice, smart dog.
He loves the tennis ball best of all!

Thanks, Julie

Lola
Late Summer 2011

Sleeping

Hi Wanda,

Clint and I just wanted to send you some pictures and let you know how Lola is doing. She is the most wonderful gift anyone could have, she even howls! She is extremely smart. She knows how to sit on command now and we are working on other tricks. We are still working on potty training but we both think she is catching on. She has made best buddies with our 7 yr old border collie (Mattie) and starting to make friends with our 4 yr old cate (Spook). She knows when to be energetic to play and also knows when to settle down to cuddle.

 

Thank you again. I feel in the future, if we are looking for another pet, we will surely look you up again.

 

 

Cisco
Late Summer 2011

Hi Wanda,

Thanks so much for the GREAT dog! He has been so good! Such a sweet guy and no accidents yet...knock on wood! Also, I put him in his cage at 9:30 last night and did not hear a peep from him till I got up at 6:30 this morning.The boys want to change his name to Willy!

 

We will keep in touch. Julie

 

Mitzi
Summer 2011

Mitzi is doing great! We love her so much and she's very affectionate. We can't get enough compliments on how sweet of a dog she is. She's quite small, about 17 lbs or so, give or take a treat or 2. We tend to spoil her and do everything with her. She loves walks and car rides, and going up to my family farm to play with all the other animals. We took her to the lake this summer and discovered she's not a huge fan of the water but is content sitting on an inflatable toy with us. She's very much a part of our family and we've had a lot of fun!

Diva (Gabby) is doing awesome! She has adjusted to her new home quite well and is definitely ruling the roost! Jaxson and she absolutely love each other. They have tons of fun playing as well as snuggling together! (I’ve actually been quite surprised that he lets her run the show most of the time!!!) She loves hanging out at the lake and riding in the boat. She is quite social…..the neighbors all know her well! We just started puppy training 2 weeks ago and she is a quick and eager learner. She has become a treasured member of the family!
