My Tribute to one of my dearest friends Jim Nabors, who passed away last week (November 30, 2017) Jim was one of the nicest, genuine, down to earth person that you could ever meet.  I was Honored and Blessed to sell him one of my pups over 6 years ago, during that time we became friends and stayed in contact. 

I will miss him dearly, he was one of a kind.  R.I.P. dear friend we love you !!!

Hi Kathy,

I hope this finds you well. Here are some highlights of Nellie's adventures over the last few months. She is now full grown and is finally losing her puppy hair. She is very dark, which I love! Nellie gets along well with all other dogs and even has a few cat friends. She enjoys traveling and going on long walks. Nellie is gentle, goofy, and comforting all at once. I would be lost without her.

Kathy,

A quick note in advance of Blue’s 3rd Birthday to share some pictures and to tell you how amazing he is.  Having now gone through both obedience and personal protection training, he is the consummate farm and family dog and companion.  He goes to work every day, keeping the goats and donkeys in order (although he has to manage them from outside their pasture fence) and protects everyone at night from the sights and sounds of living in the country. 

He still has a lot of puppy in him and is a true head turner.  Lisa walks him in our little courthouse square every morning (along with Lucy the Beagle) and not a day goes by without someone stopping to tell her how gorgeous he is.  Our lives have surely been enhanced since we brought this little guy home in 2014.

I hope you and your family are well.  Give us a call if you’re ever in the Atlanta area!

Best Regards,

Drew

Hi Kathy,

You don't know how much that I enjoy reading what owners of your puppies write on your gallery page.  So I want to share a few things about Gyda with you, if you want to share please do so.

We are working with K-9 Off Leash Trainers and have been very satisfied.  We purchased a package of 10 - 1 hour lessons and we're on the 10th.  The trainer whom I work with says great things about Gyda, i.e., what a great temperament she has, her stature, how smart she is and beautiful of course.

K-9 trains with an electric collar.  Many think it's cruel when in fact used properly is great and very effective.  Gyda is very strong she weighs 70 pounds.  I have to be in control otherwise she would drag me into oblivion.  (LOL)

She is head strong and smart which is a scary combination.  She's truly a pleasure in our lives and you've done a FABULOUS job in breeding the best stock.

We're grateful for you both. 

Thank you so much,


Gwen

Hi Kathy!

I wanted you to see how well Nitro is doing! He has about a 20 word vocabulary as of right now, and I'm still just working on obedience with him. He is just an awesome, super cool, super smart, 9 month old, 90 lb GSD! As I'm sure you are well aware of, he's still shedding his puppy coat, but his color change is coming along beautifully. He looks like a skunk right now, but underneath that is black so we are confident he will have a solid black saddle. 

I can't tell you the amount of compliments we get from people - mostly total strangers! He is an amazing dog, Kathy. 

Attached are a couple of pics. In one of them he is sitting like a goofball...lol!

Enjoy! And thank you for all you do in breeding this magnificent breed. 

Fondly,

Chuck and Abby

Hi Kathy! 

Hope you're feeling better now!  You sure have had a rough 6 or so months healthwise!  Hoping everything is on the mend now! 

Got some pictures of Hank today and figured I'd share them with you his first Mom.  Can't believe our boy is going to be 9 months old the end of the month already!  Time sure has flown since January!  As you can see he's enjoying our beautiful WI weather!  This boy is a water nut!  It is so much fun watching him swim and pounce in the water!  Hank makes us laugh everyday with his antics!  Love him so much!  He's slowed down a bit on his weight he's now 76 #s.  He's still growing steady and sure and seems to just be just so well balanced overall. 

I know I've said this many times but thank you again for the beautiful care taken of these pups their first 8 weeks!  It sure does payoff for us their new owners!

Sending love and hugs!

Bob & Linda

Thanks again, we really appreciate your excellent breeding.

Thanks so much for the 1st year Birthday wish for Koa! I'm a little late getting back with you as our youngest daughter was just married. Now we are true "empty-nesters" and Koa goes everywhere with us now!
 

Koa is doing Awesome! He loves the lake, and loves running up at the cabin.

He has such a great temperament and gets along really well with our friends Black Lab (Tucker) and my daughters Alaskan Malamute (Chevy)!

I attached some pics of Koa from 2017. The latest were taken right around his 1st birthday.

Your puppy pics from the Oct and January litters look awesome as well as seeing Koa's brothers and sisters from Ava and Ruger's April 2016 litter!

We really love seeing all the Gallery pics from your litters!

Take care!!

Hi Kathy,

Wanted you to see Ava...she's an awesome dog.    She knows come, sit, down,

stay, wait (for letting humans walk through doors first), ok, drop, and Aus

(what we are using for 'out' - let go, etc).  For Sit, Down and stay - she

can do with hand signals only and/or voice.  She's learning to walk properly

with leash right now.   We are very happy...oh and she has one heck of a

bite....tennis balls have nothing on her...

Do you know your breeding schedule for the fall...we are interested in

picking up a male.

 

Thanks,

Joe

Hi Kathy!

Took some pictures this morning and wanted to send you some to show you how he's grown. 55# s last Friday. He's hard to get pictures of outside cause he's a moving machine lol. As a point of reference my collie Riley is 85#s so you can see Hank boy is catching up. Now that the weather has gotten nicer here in WI it's much more pleasant being out and about.

Love our Hank so much. He's so social and fearless. Our pair of Sandhill cranes have returned again this year and while Hank was very interested in them he obeyed my "no" command to not chase them yesterday. I've got to say I was quite impressed lol. Thanks again for all you put into these dogs before they come home with us. It shows! Love and hugs from our pack to you and yours!

Kathy,

I have attached the invoice from Greta's initial visit to the vet. Greta is perfect - just as we thought. And she received her bordetella vaccine.

We are so in love with this puppy. I know it's only been a few days, but none of us can imagine being without her. She is FEARLESS!!! We have not yet found a sound that scares her - lawnmower, leaf blower, vacuum, car horns. We have been diligent in taking her outside, so no potty accidents in the house. She is adapting to her crate and to her leash. I think she will be exceptionally easy to train. Tonight she went to a relative's house and played with their two dogs. She tries very hard to play with our cats - but they have yet to reciprocate. Even though we had the "last pick", we know that we got the best dog :)

Good morning Kathy!

Here's a couple of updated pictures I took of Hank this morning. He's growing up too fast! I keep asking him "where's that little puppy we brought home just 6 short weeks ago" lol? He sure has become a huge part of our lives in that 6 weeks. Puppy sitting sure keeps me active everyday. I've lost 5#s since we got him :) which is a good thing.

Your new litter is beautiful and I'm looking forward to watching them grow out. I love when people send you updates on your tribute page, it's so fun to watch all these beautiful pups as they mature. You sure do breed some stunning dogs! Well I know you're busy now doing poop control, eating patrol and socializing patrol so I'll close for now. Just want to validate that all your hard work pays off greatly to all of us that are lucky enough to "adopt" one of your precious pups.

Take care and hugs from us all.

Re:  Hank aka blue collar male from Ava x Ruger's October 2016 litter.

Hi Kathy,

Hank went in today for his rabies shot. He also weighed 32.4#s. He's getting to be a big boy! Bob is thrilled in every way with him and of course me too! Thank you again for all you put into these puppies before they go to their furever home. It's shows in every area training, loving even feeding. I think because you free fed Hank is a good eater but he takes his time eating. Never having to fight the others for food he doesn't feel the need to bolt his food down so he is slow and steady which I'm sure is helpful when worrying about bloat. Thank you for entrusting him to our care I promise we'll do all in our power to see that he thrives. I'll be sending more pictures in a month so you can keep up on his progress. :) Hope mom and puppies are doing well and you and Willy too. I check your website each week for the new pictures of puppies I just love watching them grow. They look like they're biguns'.

Hugs,
Linda

Hi Kathy,

Here are photos taken today in the snow and earlier in the week.
We had about 7" of snow last night which is pretty unusual for central NC.
What a difference a day makes.
She's great, very smart.
Sitting and Stay for 4-5 steps.
Supposed to start puppy class with her Monday but think we'll probably be paralyzed for a while because of the snow.
Moon has adjusted well considering it's just been 2 weeks. If I can prevent my husband from being the Alpha all will be good :)

Hi Kathy,

Well here it is day 3 of puppy sitting for my son Bob and it's going great! He and Riley get along really well and he already knows sit, down and potty training is going awesome. He's such a fast learner! We love him so much. He's keeping both me and Riley moving all day long which is good for both of us. Love how his ears change each day. Thank you for this awesome boy!

Hi Kathy,

Just wanted to let you know our new pup, Klaus, AKA black collar male, is doing just fine.  We already took him to the vet. Everything was fine. I am very impressed with how quickly he adjusts to new environments and new situations. He already knows his name and comes when he is called. Even more amazing, he is already potty trained and crate trained, and sleeps through the night!  He is very smart and he is bold and fearless.

Thanks again for breeding such a magnificent dog.

Best regards,

Alexander S. Magno, M.D.

This is Hans aka "orange collar male" at 8 weeks old.  A pup from Ava x Ruger's October 2016 litter.  Hans now resides in California with Rose & Nelson.

Hi Kathy,

OMG my puppy is awesome. He traveled so well! He has an unbelievable disposition- so calm and very alert and is becoming so playful. He hasn't missed a potty break and is eating well and drinking lots of water.

We're taking him to our vet tomorrow and will send you the vet check soon. I'll also send you back the collar you lent us.

We can't thank you enough for this wonderful addition to our family

I hope you had a nice, quiet birthday yesterday. I'll send pics soon.

All of our Love,

Rose and Nelson

Hey Kathy,


Gyda is great! She slept through the night last night which is totally awesome.
She's playful and funny.


Moon was excited the night we got home with a wagging tail, etc. since then he walks around with a low growl but is adjusting.


We went to the Vet Thursday and everything was good.

Hope all is well with you and you've gotten a little rest.
Trust your Birthday was nice.

This is "Harley" aka "gold collar" female pup from Ava x Ruger's April 2016 litter. 

Photo at almost 8 months of age.  Harley resides in Kansas.

 

Hi Kathy,

Everyone tells us she is a beautiful dog. Still very excitable with new people but

in a good way. Still a puppy and has a lot of personality. Plus, very smart. Maybe we can get her a playmate and companion. Hope all are happy with the latest litter. Would like to have gotten one. Have a wonderful holiday season.
