Bethany Willow and Tiffany Rose from Tuckasegee, North Carolina~

Both girls. Bethany is on a diet which she doesn't like but she needs to loose a few pounds.

Good veterinary information~

I hope you never need any of this information, but if you do, I hope this helps. But if you have reason to think your dog might have ingested something poisonous, get it to the vet right away!  Never, ever take a chance.

Miss Bella from Lewes, Delaware~

Hi Susan, this is Paul and Christine. Just wanted to let you see how Bella is doing. I'm the one who grooms her. I'm now letting her skirt grow out. She is beautiful and fills our home with lots of love. She touches the hearts of everyone she meets.
Thank you for such a wonderful addition to our family and life.

"Miss Sasha" from Toronto, Ontario, Canada~

I have been meaning to drop you a line to tell you how delighted we were to see the photos of Jamie - Sasha's litter mate and brother. I have to believe he is an awesome fellow since Sasha is such a fantastic little gal. She is smart and adorable - and definitely runs our home. Her internal alarm clock gets us up at the same time every morning and, at the end of the day, when bedtime comes, she announces that it is "time". ( That is a canine first for us).

I am sure that you must miss having all the litters. Know that the High Calling family is still out here - and we all know that our cocker companions are the most beautiful ever!

I hope you are enjoying South Carolina. We think of you often and continue to thank you for our Sasha.

From Cherrie"...Tuckaseegee, North Carolina~

Hi Sue,

Just wanted to check in and see how you and the family are doing? It has really been HOT here in the mountains. In fact, we had the hottest May on record and I think June may be right up there too.

I sent some new photos of the girls which I hope you received and enjoyed. They are so much fun and have a blast when my niece, Shannon and her children come for a visit. Bethany is just like a puppy with her tail and body doing the “Cocker Twist”. Tiffany loves to play fetch with anyone and everyone! She runs like the wind and is hard to keep up with her! Both are so happy when they get up and have so much love to give. They bring joy and happiness into the lives of everyone around them. Needless to say, how is Miss Ladybug doing? If she’s anything like her sister I know she brings much laughter and joy into your lives.

Last Monday we said good-bye to Clay, Shannon’s eldest son, he’s off to Fort Benning, GA for training. Before he left, I was able to continue a family tradition of blessing the one leaving for the military and giving them their unique verse selected for him from the Bible. This is something we’ve always done and is always a special moment.

I keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope everything is going well and that everyone’s health is improving.

Have a great July 4th! I do miss our family gatherings on these special holidays. But remember how much fun everyone had. Since it’s  just me and the girls I usually fix a hamburger for us. Their patty is small but they get to enjoy a special treat.

Love and much happiness through Christ,
Cherrie’, Bethany and Tiffany

"Jaime"and his buddy, "Casey" from Newport News, Virginia~

Granddaughter Madison with Jaime

Bruce & Jaime...loves his Dad

Jaime and Casey

Best pals!

Jaime 4 1/2 years

Hello Susan!
I had lost your address but found it the other day. I was so happy because I wanted to send you a picture of our Jaime!
He is 4 1/2 now. I told him the other day to stop growing up so fast! There are not enough words to express the love Bruce and I have for him!!
Jaime entertains us during the day and loves on us in the evenings! He is so funny and so sweet. He goes everywhere with us! He loves his brother, an AKC cavalier spaniel. But sadly, Casey is 12 and not in good health. One day Jaime will be without his brother and he will miss him.
I know you are no longer breeding, but was hoping you could recommend a good breeder. We will travel anywhere to purchase a sweet cocker and willing to pay a good price.
Thank you for all the support you show to those who have lost their babies ! I'm sure one day I'll benefit from your thoughtfulness.
I'll send the photos in the next email.

God bless you for sending us Jaime!
Gina & Bruce

Miss Bailey Glory and her dearest friend, Curley at Eastertime~

Dearest Sue,

I love how my apartment looks at Christmas and decided there's no reason it can't look as nice every season, so I went to my second favorite store, Michaels, and picked up a few Spring/Summer decorations. Today I put them up...and now we're getting 10 inches of snow.

The kids are doing well. In their joint photos, Curley is on the left and Bailey is on the right or standing. I took them to see the Easter Bunny the beginning of March. Alex shaved them the day before so they would look nice for me. I included one of their "before" photos. Like their Mother, they prefer Santa. Bailey kept trying to escape the Bunny's grasp. Curley is completely blind now, so he just sat there like a champ. As long as someone's petting him, he doesn't care who it is.

It's hard to believe Bailey will be four at the end of May. She is my constant companion and I love her to death. I can't wait to get home to them at the end of the day. When dinner's ready, she's right there to see if I drop anything on the floor. When I sit down to watch TV she curls up at my side, until I pick up either my cross-stitch or my computer to edit photos- then she runs for her ball or her pink doggy and I lay my work aside to play fetch with her.

We're taking our first family vacation in June and heading to our cottage in New Hampshire. I told Alex we aren't going until we get life vests for the kids, though. I have to make sure Curley's as safe as possible and Bailey tends to do things first, then think about it afterwards. Since she's never been around water, I don't want her running down the dock and jumping off the end, then realizing the ground underneath her is no longer solid. It should be interesting. I'm trying to find pet-friendly things they'll both enjoy. Curley is 14 and not much of a walker anymore. He would rather just sit outside and feel the sun on his face and I agree with him. For me, the cottage was made for curling up with a good book! Bailey, on the other hand, is like her Daddy-they always need to be on the go. I may need a vacation after my vacation.

I hope you and Mike are doing well. You are often in my nightly prayers.

Love Always,
Sarah & Bailey

Happy Easter!

I want to wish you all a very blessed Easter Sunday. If it wasn't for the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we would be lost forever. We are saved by the shedding of His precious blood. Thank You Lord for saving me, even though I most certainly don't deserve it. Only by Your grace do I have the blessed hope of a home in heaven with You. Christ is my "all in all".

Easter Blessings to you all!!!!
