"She has been amazing, shes settled in great. Polly has quite the personality and loves to play. She has had a few play dates with our parents dog and has done amazingly. However she also loves her naps with mom. First night was a bit ruff in the crate. But now she loves it and never whines or barks. We have been struggling with the snow pooping and peeing as even though we shoveled her spot in the yard. However I'm sure she'll get used to it. She's got tons of friends and family as they all love how cute and friendly she is. Louisa is taking a picture of her every week in the mirror. And once she turns one. We are gonna make a collage 🙂 she is one amazing little girl. And we are happy to have her part of the family!"

"Leonard is already 12lb! He loves us and his big fur brother so much! He is the best baby. He loves his kennel for naps and bed time. He’s doing amazing with potty training, whines when he has to go and goes immediately. He’s getting great with the sit and come command too. You guys are amazing breeders, he is the best baby!!"

"Hi Emily!  I've been meaning to send you a pup-date but we have been so busy and sick this week...We renamed Cloud "Brewer" (technically it's Sir Brewer Wooly Bear Sweetie Boettcher 😂).  He is doing so well!  it's taken him some time to get settled in to a busy household with lots of kids but he is really at home now 🥰 he's so sweet and gentle with everyone-even the baby and lets the kids snuggle him which they love!  He is SUPER attached to my husband and follows him everywhere-he doesn't even need to be leashes outside (although we still usually leash him) which we LOVE because our last dog was a runner.  He's just a cute and sweet as can be and such a good listener!  We were dealing with some separation anxiety at first when my husband would leave but it's settled down a lot and we are finding new way to help him.  I noticed this week he has been sticking closer to my older boys sometimes too even when my husband is around.  He tends to shy away from me so I'm trying to give him time and let him warm up🙏🏻 he overall is such a sweetie though to all of us and we love him!  One of his (and my boys) favorite things to do is  to go to the baseball ball field and run/have races until they all come home tired 😅 He's been the perfect family dog for us!"

"He is sweeter than sweet. He loves a good nap, I will have to say! He's had so many experiences in his short lifetime. Boat rides, numerous walks, golf cart rides, truck rides, sleepovers, he's been read to almost every night...I could go on forever 🙂 Still working on some hand/finger chewing 🫣 getting old but I'm really hoping it ends soon! He has never been destructive to any of our things, just likes to relocate our socks 🤣🙈"

"Hello Emily and John, Gale is now Trudy. She has really taken to her name and is a wonderful addition to our family. Our granddaughter Zora came up for a visit and Trudy was so gentle with her. Trudy loves my knitting needles but listens very well to NO! She loves cuddling! And is an excellent walker on the leash. I think she loves it here and we love her here ❤️"

"Hi Emily,  Auggie (Sunny) is doing fantastic! Still unsure of lots of things but she's getting better. We have her signed up for puppy classes and she gets her haircut on Tuesday. At first she wouldn't go near our grandson but now she loves to run around the yard with him... and chill on the couch. I think she likes it here. 😊 And we certainly love having her here. 🥰"

Sunny (Auggie) Update 9-28-23.jpg

"Hi!! He has had the best birthday so far this morning he was greeted with a bunch of snuggles and he went to pet smart to pick out a new harness, a toy, & some treats then to his favorite trail for a walk!! 🎂 My gentle giant is about 62 pounds. I love him so much I couldn’t imagine my life without him. ❤️🐾 He loves the water hose, poking his head out the sunroof on rides, boat rides, and running through the house like a crazy man lol."

"He is perfect. He’s about 62 pounds but much taller and longer than Harper. He hasn’t filled out yet so I anticipate him being well over 70 pounds. I thought Harper was affectionate, but he is the most loving and cuddly dog I’ve had (almost to my detriment). He and my older dog love to play which is funny since my older dog doesn’t really interact with Harper. Harper and Finnley are best friends. He just finished his Pet Excellence Training. His only struggles are counter surfacing and jumping but he’s working on it:)"

"We are loving our Bodie! He's calm when he needs to be and playful when should be. You did a great job matching us up with him; he's just what we needed. For anyone who is hesitant on getting an "older" puppy, as long as they are from a responsible and caring breeder like you guys, there should be no hesitation. Thank you for giving Bo (and our family) such a jump start."

"Our girl is learning to swim… kind of. She’s happy and sweet and has yet to meet someone she can’t charm.  She loves people! She will sit and wait to say hi, but once released goes in for a full hug."

Great!  Her temperament is a perfect match for our family.  She completed Puppy Bootcamp last week and starts Obedience training in September.  My retired neighbor is officially her “grandma” and takes her out daily when I work, and the kids adore her.  I also can’t get enough of her snuggles."

"Hi Emily! Schatzi is doing very well. She continues to be very sweet, very obedient considering her age, smart, highly energetic, well socialized, very playful, and a bit spoiled! She weighs 45 lb. We let her coat grow out for protection in the winter, but we think this adult coat will be better kept partially trimmed. At full length there is a real tendency towards matting. And it is difficult to brush really deep. She loves us to pieces and we love her. We live next to my brother and the two dogs there and Schatzi often play together, in spite of the differences in size. She is very considerate of the older dog, and gives the younger dog plenty of rigorous playtime. The older dog is a catahoula and the younger one is a rat terrier, so we have quite the managerie! I am sending a set of pictures from the last couple of months. She loves to romp in the falling snow, and if allowed would sit directly in line with the snow blown from the snowblower. When it was warmer she loved running in the spray of a garden hose. Also. She eats well, a lot, and is carrying a nearly perfect amount of weight for her bone structure. In addition to photos, I will send a very short video segment. If it transmits to you, it is an illustration of how she could play 10 to 15 times a day. She has been perfect for getting Len out for more activity. We have mentioned your name to several people who have admired her."

He weighs fifty pounds already and the growth chart estimates are showing he will be a very big boy! I know when we picked him out he felt "sturdy"...I should have known! How are his brothers?"

"Harper was spayed yesterday. It has been a chore to not let them play. Tonight I found them like this. They love each other so much! They are pretty much inseparable. I probably have 100 photos of them cuddling. Finnley is already 40 pounds and really tall. The vet and our trainer say he is going to be a tall boy. Didn’t think I would get so lucky the 2nd time, but we are blessed. He is a vocal guy which is opposite of Harper, but so cuddly. They are just precious together."

"Harper is wonderful and enjoying life. She's been through 2 puppy classes and has 3 more lined up this fall. She has been the easiest dog I've ever trained. It helps that she can't ever get enough food! She does Pet Excellence next, then tricks and then Canine Good Citizen. It's so fun to watch her learn...and keeps her out of trouble. Took the ones on the couch outside today. She loves the pool...but can't figure out how to use her back legs when swimming so she eventually sinks...lol. She can't get enough of chasing the hose and attacking the water."

"Today we gave Schatzi her very first full bath. She was as good as gold. She is very gentle. Becoming quite obedient and loves to be praised. In the house she is usually well mannered, but outside she plays and plays and plays. We have probably three or four acres that we keep mowed so she is not in tall grass. She weighs 27 lb today and is well on her way to master the commands home, sit, wipe your feet (we have her stop on a towel to dry off when she comes in from dew in the morning or wet grass from rain), crate, no, and stay. She is a cuddle bug and loves to be brushed. She likes to jump up on people, which we will be stopping soon, but when she does she is still very gentle with her big fluffy paws. She seems to have a very good sense of self-confidence and she is good with other dogs and children and other people. We are very, very happy with her. Her personality is perfect for us - heaven help us if we had anyone more active. She is way more active than our Bouvier or Pyrenees!! But her best traits are her sweetness and gentleness. And so far her hair is perfect - it is very fine and very soft and she has not been shedding it all. Of course, it remains to be seen how her adult coat will grow in. Thank you so much for raising such a lovely pup so we could bring her into our home."
