We are soooooo excited to see our new kids!! Most people probably think we're crazy for giving away a puppy we
loved so much, but what can you do when someone's heart is hurting so much and a puppy like Benji would help
them. She loves him so much. She cuddles and kisses him, bakes him cookies, makes him homemade food,
reads him stories, they take daily park plays and they have the farm. She said he loves to chase the animals and
chickens and he loves her so much. She said the other day she was in class and her friend puppysat Benji and
they decided to meet up in the park. She said when she got there and Benji saw her, he jumped straight up in the
air and ran to her and jumped into her arms. I guess a lady walking her dog saw this and told her she wished
she'd had a camera to catch this heartfelt meeting between the two and that she should cherish every moment with
that beautiful pup. We love to hear her stories but our hearts were broken after he left. We let him go because we
knew he would be happy with her and all her animals. But, we finally got to a place where we said we'll have TWO
puppies and they will be happy together.
We've spent the day making the rounds getting things ready for our new babies.....they are Rocky and Buster!
Toys, blankets, food, bowls, treats, chew bones. We got everything replaced except the kennel we had and we
have a small Honda Fit and we'll make them a bed in the back seat. Benji HATED that kennel. He cried every time
I put him into it, even though he was so exhausted and wanted to take his nap. So, we just took it down and he
took his naps in his bed on the floor. He went to bed at 9:00 and always slept until 4:30. He cried by my bed to go
out and then he'd come in and go right back to bed. Don't know if Buster and Rocky will be like that or
not....they're all different.
They are just beautiful pups! Thank you for sending the photos and we'll see you on Wednesday. We're so
excited to see you again and all the crew. Thank you also for the discount on our pups. You are a jewel also.
Thanks for the photos. I couldn't be any happier with her. Not only did she do fantastic on the trip home, she
did even better when she meet our other dogs. She slept through the night and has been a bundle of love
and kisses since.
I appreciate all the Aussie info you included in your packet. I was shocked to see all of the drug sensitivities
the breed could have. Very scary. I went through the packet and all looks good except, what is the patella's
test? Unfortunately we didn't run into Shelby's brother in ticketing. We looked all over as we had an hour to
I will email you after she meets our Vet and send you a few photos with her new family.
I'm in love!
Thank you for everything Kathy!!
Thank you so much for everything. Troy was just unbelievable during our trip. He was such a good boy. He
slept on my chest for two hours waiting for our flight out, then slept on the seat next to me on the airplane.
We love having him home. See two pictures I took of him above.
Just thought I'd let you know that my puppy is doing very well! His name is Blue Rodeo (Rodeo for short)! I had
him all over my property and on the docks; he's not afraid of the water! :) Everyone that has met him so far
absolutely loves him! He's so perfect...I couldn't have asked for a better dog! I love him to pieces! :) Thank
you for everything! I will send pictures shortly!
Just checking in and letting you know all is good here. Couldn’t resist sending you this picture I took of Misty a
couple of nights ago. She had just learned how to climb out of the 24” high little pen she has, for night time. It
is located right beside my bed. Then last night she actually jumped up to the top of the 24 inches, climbed on
over and jumped down. I think she definitely has some of Chantilly in her. She is so darn cute; I just love her to
death… So far she hasn’t even tried to get out of the day time pen I have for her. It’s in my front hall way and
she can see me most of the time so she is pretty satisfied being in there and hanging out. That pen is 32
We’re working on potty training and she is doing real well.
I’ve walked her on a couple of blocks in my immediate neighborhood each day. She is still taking her little
wiener raccoon with her, though she only carry’s it about half way now. I’ll send another email or two with those
pictures. I haven’t figured out how to attach more than one picture at a time to my emails.
When I took her to the vet last Tuesday she weighed 7 pounds. A week has passed and I imagine she has
gained more. She is eating real good.
I think she is recognizing her name now and starting to know “cookie” and “go potty”. She “sits” pretty much
automatically and now also pretty much follows it up with a “down”. I am totally amazed at how quickly she is
picking things up. She still wants to chew on everything so I keep my eye on her and often “trade” one of her
toys for one of mine! She compromises with me real well! Tee hee.
Last evening Ann brought her son and his family over to see Misty. There were 5 adults here and 3 kids, age
range of kids being 9yrs. to 16 yrs. I didn’t know how Misty would handle so many people playing with her at
once, but she totally enjoyed them all! She wasn’t the least bit concerned and went from one to the other.
They stayed about 20 min. and wanted to take Misty home with them. I kindly told them no, that Misty was here
to stay! We all laughed…
Ok, I’ll see if I can get some other pictures off to you.
Hi again, Misty didn’t seem at all fazed by the vacuum cleaner. At first I sat it away from her so she could just
look at it from her pen, then I turned it on and she just listened to it, then I started moving it and eventually I got
it to within 2 feet of her pen and it seemed that she was saying to me, “so what’s the big deal, am I supposed to
be scared of a vacuum? Well, I’m not!” Carole
Shelbie has been home only a few weeks, and she is amazing. She is hilarious, and mischievous, and loving (and
did I say mischievous???). We all have chapped lips from the continuous puppy kisses. Still acclimating with our
other two dogs, but they are finding their way. We have a trainer at our house once a week, and Shelbie is a star
student. Colton (our son) is in charge of that and they both are learning. Crate training is going well, and she is a
great addition to our family. Cats are still bigger than her, but she won’t stop eating or drinking, so we are waiting for
a growth spurt.
Just wanted to say thanks, and let you know Shelbie is in a loving, happy , fulfilled home. Thanks again and God
