working on getting photos inserted, but wanted to update the feedback.
Thank you so much again for the puppy. His name is Sawyer and he is doing very well here in BC. He definitely likes to run and really enjoys laying in the grass. He is a pretty tiny little guy with a huge personality. Would you happen to have any pictures of the mom and dad, the link on your site is not working. So far everything is great and I really appreciate what you have done. I have included some pictures so please let me know if they work.

Hello Minda, Steve and I are having a great time with the new puppy. He is absolutely beautiful! He is calm and happy. I cannot believe how fast he has fit right in around our place. We set his little bed area up on our front porch and before the first week was up he already has no accidents! He goes for a 2 mile walk with us each evening and sticks very close without using a leash!! His health his perfect and we will soon take him in for his last shots. Our 2 grandkids are staying over a few days and love the new puppy. We are thinking “Arthur” now as his name because he is like a little King! I will send a pix or 2 along with this note or to follow this. Thanks again Minda for everything. p.s. the shipping and all arrangements we made with you to get our puppy were so easy and prompt and he arrived safe, sound, and happy! Thankyou sincerely, Dellie & Steve

I would like to express my sincere pleasure and appreciation of your professional and caring attitude regarding the purchase of our beautiful puppy Skye.
From my first contact; to
your follow up phone calls regarding the safe shipment and health of our
puppy, I found that you are a truly caring individual and a responsible
professional breeder. I took my time finding the right individual to
purchase the puppy I wanted, it was a good decision.
Thank you for providing quality family pets for those of us wishing to choose size, temperament and breed qualities that suite our lifestyle.
The vet said Teddy was in excellent health! The vet said you were a well informed breeder in regards to the vaccine . Teddy is making wonderful progress on potty training! Couple pictures of him are attached.
Kaila (Mopsy and Jasper) is a sweetheart! She is even more beautiful than her photos on your website, as her silver-blue merle coat has a rose tint. She is settling in easily, is curious, affectionate, playful, and smart. She has been pretty laid-back so far, though it took her a couple of days to get used to being alone in her crate at night. She and Merlin (whom I got from you Christmas 2009) like each other, as you can see from the pictures. She is almost housebroken after three days! Of course she has Merlin to copy, and I learned a lot from raising him last year so know some "tricks of the trade."
Because they are so smart and sensitive, I know how important it is to be diligent and exact in training them correctly from the start. I had a wonderful trainer last year who taught me a lot with Merlin starting with puppy class. She moved to CA but I am starting Kaila next week with her replacement who is also excellent. I plan to keep training her as I have Merlin in Canine Good Manners, Rally Obedience, Agility, maybe even tracking or herding (they start with geese!) just to keep them active physically and mentally.
Thank you for your thoroughness, and for sending me this beautiful girl!

|Good Morning Minda ~ just a update on the pup . She is
so smart (but you knew that already) has mastered “sit”, “stay”, “lay
down”, “spit” (likes to pick up and try to eat rabbit turds, so spit is
important), “come” and “load up” which applies to the car, truck or
4/wheeler. I’m sure she is spring loaded because free standing she can
jump over 3 foot!
She HATES grooming but is getting used to the nightly brushing, and doesn’t mind getting her nails clipped. Pick up the harness and leash and she is ready for fun
|We got Cowboy from you in July of 2007 right after we
purchased our first home, he will be 4 in April and my husband and I and
both of our sons agree that getting Cowboy was the best decision we ever
made, we all love him to death! He is extremely cuddly and is content to
snuggle up all day long J He is so smart and was so easy to train, we
were even able to teach him to ring a bell hanging from the door knob
when he needs to go outside. Just wanted to send a few pictures and let
you know how happy we are with him!
Just wanted you to know that our beautiful Sierra is doing very well. I've attached a picture of her and do believe she is the most beautiful puppy to ever leave your home! She will be spay next month at 6 months. Hard to believe she's growing so quickly. My son and I met someone at the dog park last week who also got their dog from you! What a small world. Sierra has brought up so much joy. Wish I was in a position to get another one, but maybe down the road. Her parents, Sugar Daddy and Rica make gorgeous babies. Thank you again. I can't imagine my life without her. Very friendly, smart and always the most beautiful dog at the park. Everyone comments on her. We've taken her on hikes and she never leaves our sides. We love her with all our hearts. Amazing!
I Just waned to thank you for such a good puppy..Very pleasant dog..Very friendly..Very good with my 4 y.o. daughter and my older ACD..Very smart..Very pretty :)
I am very happy with the way she is.. I love how exited she gets when she sees me...
I am meeting the vet in 2 weeks to schedule her to be spayed end of march.
I thought I'd give you a quick update on the pups, Sheba & Boomer. I've attached a recent picture. She is six months old and he is nearly 5mos. They are doing fantastic! We have them out almost everyday for walks, or puppy socials or dog park training, etc. Let me tell you, they are regular celebrities! We get stopped all the time and asked about the breed. We always tell people if they are interested to look you up online. I'm telling you Minda, we should have your card and be on commission!! ;) Don't be surprised if your inquiries raise significantly out of the Bay area!
They are just the best little guys in the world and we are really, really happy! Thank you very much!

To say that we’re all madly in love with Chloe would be an understatement! She is the cutest, sweetest puppy ever. Loves on everybody. Is very well behaved and hysterical to play with.
She has a baseline appt with our vet tomorrow and she starts puppy class on Thursday.
Could you email me a copy of her shot record? They won’t let her start class without it.
Thank you again for such an amazing little addition to our family.
|Hi Minda -
You sold me and my son a puppy 3-4 months ago. She was born 6-20-10. I wanted to send you a note to tell you that she is the best thing we ever did. She is the sweetest, cutest, smartest dog on earth! Jared tells her he loves her every day and kisses and hugs her.
We ended up not being able to pad train her but the woman that walks her has 3 young children and her husband comes with her in the morning to walk her just so he can see her! She takes the dog to her house all day so they can spend more time together!
When I walk her at 6:30 in the morning she brings a smile to anyone who looks at her - which is hard to do to a NYer who is outside in the dead of winter at 6:30am.
Thought you would want to know you made a family very happy and a dog too.
|Hi Minda....Just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas
and send you a couple photos of Orielle who is doing just great. The
first photo is Ori with my Mom on her 100th Birthday Nov. 1st.
Unfortunately, Mom died on Nov. 16. But she had two special months with
little Ori. In fact, Mom died in her sleep with Ori curled up in bed
beside her. She had a wonderful life and a wonderful peaceful death. Ori
made her last days very happy.
Dear little Ori was lost for quite some time once she no longer had the "job" of herding my Mom around the house. Her job now is to "announce" visitors. Ori has turned into a great watch dog with a very BIG bark.
Today she went with my singing group when we performed at a nursing home and Ori was the hit of the show. Everyone loved her. Tomorrow she will be doing some "therapy" visiting at another nursing home. Ori is very good with the old folks. She also loves to run in the snow and play frisbee. She is a very good girl and is loved by everyone who meets her. Thank you again for rushing her to us. My Mom needed her and now I need her. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday.
the small golden-girl is doing very well! She is a very happy and sweet little lady! I have emailed a photo so you can see how pretty she is!
I hope you fine too! ... And your pack of dogs too! :-)
You have many very nice puppies! Congratulations!
The black-bi are really beautiful! a real temptation!

|You are so right! - I remember you emailing that it was
difficult to get pics because the puppies would come up and stay right
on your feet and by you- that is so true!!! He is all love!!!
I love the "loved to death" happy!
I will continue to send cute pics- thank you again!!!
What a wonderful breeder you are! I truly believe in good breeders and you have proven that you are so wonderful!!!
Just thought I would send you a few pictures of the little guy so you could see how well he is adjusting and having a blast in the snow! He is just a darling and growing like a weed, over 12 pounds now. Any one that sees him just falls in love and they are amazed at him.
Its been a while but wanted to show you how beautiful and, happy Saddie and, Sugar Daddys baby is.
She is a true blessing in our life what a loving little girl. By the way we are the people that live in Washougal
Wa. I keep looking at your website and, wanting all the new babys but, just a little to much work. I don't know
how you guys do it. But just wanted to say again thank you for a very perfect little doggie shes the greatest.
