Hi Sue,
Belle is wonderful!  :-)  She is so well adjusted!  She slept over half the trip home in the kennel on top of Andrew's arm.  :-)  She did throw up once on the trip but had no trouble settling to eat about 45 min. after we arrived home.  She had only two accidents yesterday but for such a large adjustment that is fantastic!  She is getting many kisses and play in between naps.  She cried a little when I put her in the crate last night so I put a blanket down on the floor next to the crate and lay there for a while until she was settled (only about 10 min. before she was asleep) then I crawled into bed.  She made it through the night until 5:15 this morning without having an accident!  Thanks for all your great care and socialization!  We are so happy to have her!  :-)

Take care,

Seneca has been such a joy.  She is a mascot at our bed and breakfast and everyone loves her.  Our guests sign up to take her for walks and she is very popular.  She gets compliments all the time for her beauty and sweet disposition.  Thank You for such a wonderful poodle.

Just to let you know, Roxy had a good night, she spent the day getting to know our dog Snowy, went for a walk in the woods and even "asked" to go out and go potty!  She is quite exhausted now and sleeping soundly.  

Hi Sue,

I've been meaning to send this to you. Polly is growing big and strong.  I've just about taught her to ring a bell to let me know when she needs to go out.

Hi Sue,
Just wanted to let you know that Belle is wonderful!  She is graduating from her first puppy socialization class this week.  We will start another class at the end of October.  She is smart, strong, healthy, beautiful, and wonderful!  She is friends with all dogs and people she meets.  She loves kids!  She is a neighborhood favorite!  She is walking well on a loose leash, knows basic skills, and goes many places with me.  I just wish I could take her to school everyday!  She gets to go to "doggie daycare" everyday at her grandmother's house...who is loving every minute with her and, most likely spoiling her rotten behind my back!  :-)

I wanted you to know that I changed her name.  The AKC would not accept "Je" in any name so I was not able to name her "Je Suis Ma Mere."  I loved the idea, though! So I change it to "she is her mother," so she is officially Michelet Belle Elle Est Sa Mere.

I hope you are doing well.  We enjoyed meeting with you and getting to visit with you.  Thanks again for Belle.  We are so happy with her!


Hi SueJust wanted to let you know happy we are with our new boy Mason.
He has helped to fill the hole in our hearts left when Simon passed.
He's a real love. We feel truly blessed.
He is growing like crazy and full of mischief.
Carly our mixed terrier, also loves her new brother.
Thank you
Marcia and Rick

Dr. Littlejohn was very pleased with the puppies today. They are mine and I won't be bringing them back to you!!!  
Did you see my texts today from the dog park. They are so beautiful. People have been stopping me on the street to admire them. Today one woman was so taken with them that she sat down right on the sidewalk to pet them! Also met a dog groomer on the street and a dog walker. Plus some neighbors I didn't know before. My photos of them on FB get lots of likes!
Tiffany is sooo mello and calm. I've been seriously blessed with angel.
Hey Sue,
We have Melanie one of your beautiful female puppies. She is growing so quickly. She is a very good girl but very busy. She is so smart it gets her into trouble at times. But we love her. I wanted to thank you with providing us with such a wonderful daughter. Best wishes to you and yours. Hope Marty is doing well in the show ring.

Hi Sue,

I'm attaching a picture of Belle's first snow.  She  loves the snow!  Her favorite is diving head first and burrowing through the snow.  So far she is staying black.  She is so sweet and happy!

Happy New Year!

Mickie's boys at eight months playing in the fields.  These boys are the pair that went to live with their forever family in Philadelphia.  They came back for a visit and we have loved having them here again.  I had a blast setting this hike to music.  Enjoy!


I wanted to update you about Melanie. She is now over 1 years old. She is a beautiful blue She is about 41 lbs and loves playing. She knows many commands and loves to learn new things. She is very intelligent and at times that gets her into trouble but most we just laugh at her talents. We want to thank you for providing us such a beautiful, intelligent, and healthy dog. We thank God for her everyday. She is healthy and happy.  She love to soak herself in her water dish as you can see from the head shot.  I hope you and your business is going well.  We think of you often. Best wishes, Susan and Todd  Rutland Vermont
