Natasha from West Palm Beach Gardens, Florida~

You missed a real treat last night…
We (3) all went in the spa and N learned to swim across the spa between us about 7-8 feet. She seemed
to really like it. Then she got a little cocky (no pun intended) and was racing around the rim of the spa until
she slid - butt first - into the deep end of the swimming pool (about a two foot drop from the spa to the

pool water). In the few seconds it took me to hop out of the spa and over to the pool edge, she swam over
to the pool steps and had her paws on the edge ready to climb out! So far my kind of dog…. no whimp!
Might be able to get her a college scholarship for swimming!
She was totally exhausted and slept thru the rest of the evening and night!

Molly and Sunny (Willow and Ginger) from Vestal, New York~

Dear Sue,
I picked up our girls this afternoon from their trip to the groomers….here is a picture of Molly and Sunny with Heidi and Heather. I hate to say that I can’t tell them apart, even after having used their services for 10 years now! They are very impressed with the temperament that our girls have. Heidi told me that both girls sit quietly to have their faces trimmed, nails trimmed, teeth brushed, coats brushed. She was especially impressed that they are not afraid of the clippers or the hair dryers. They come home prancing and wagging, obviously proud of their new “do”!

Each day with these two is a special day. We wake up to kisses and wiggles from them, and they are always so glad to walk along with me or sit in my lap or sleep at my feet. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful little girls with us! My husband wasn’t sure he was ready for another cocker spaniel after our Gracie died this summer, but he loves these two so much. It is a treat for me to see him playing with them.
Our son is a college student living in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and was surprised to see that you have a puppy living there. He is hoping to run across her someday when he is out and about; he says he needs a puppy fix! I love looking at your blog to see how your other families are doing with their puppies. You have an extended family all over the place!
I hope your Valentine’s Day was full of hugs and kisses….especially from that beautiful new granddaughter of yours!

Happy Valentines Day from Hannah...from Cambridge, Wisconsin~

Congratulations, Dottie!  Much love to all, Sue

Ranger from Hot Springs Village, Arkansas~

Hi Sue,
I wanted to check in with you and let you know how wonderful Ranger is doing. I'm sending a short video of Ranger and Heidi playing. Heidi will get a toy and dangle it in front of Ranger so he'll chase her around the dining room table. So cute! You can also see what a snuggle-bug he is.

My husband and I are having so much fun having a puppy again. Craig hasn't been around cocker spaniels before and is amazed at how SMART Ranger is! He rings the bells hanging on the door knob to go outside and is sleeping almost clear through the night without having to go out. He'll even go into his kennel when he's tired and take a nap all by himself! While our lab will go outside and want right back in, Ranger loves to explore and sniff everything. It was snowy this morning which turned to rain later, and Ranger loved running around in the "weather"! I now know what you mean about him being laid back, nothing really startles him!

Thank you, again, for raising such wonderful dogs! We are so lucky to have little Ranger come into our lives.

Love, Kaynella and Ranger

Sasha from Toronto, Ontario, Canada~

Sasha meets her health support team - Dr David Donahue, Jody Milefski, Office Manager, and 'Olivia', Office Canine Advocate.

Hi Susan and Mike,

Sasha is doing really well. She is a bright, happy, healthy puppy. And absolutely gorgeous. We are both smitten.
At the Canadian border, the officer ensured that we had her health documents and asked how much we had paid. For residents of Ontario, 13% HST duty on her purchase price is due to the provincial government, so your buyers should be prepared for that. Each province has its own sales tax fee. The documentation that you gave to us was perfect though Canada Customs never actually read it.
The rabies shot requirement is waived for young puppies. That's it. If one is well prepared it is easy! I recommend that you advise your clients to contact Canada Customs and Revenue Agency to re-confirm this information.

On the way home from Lewiston, Sasha grizzled (whimpered) for a few minutes until we gave her the soft toy - which seemed to calm her. After a quick pit stop she slept all the way to Toronto. We really appreciated the toy and the special leash. Both were immediately pressed into service and are key parts of her puppy kit. That sweet pink blanket has kept her warm as we transport her from the car in the plummeting temperatures.

As you can well imagine, Sasha has kept us pretty busy as she discovers her new world here. She has already been introduced at her veterinary clinic in Toronto. She eats well and asks often to go out. She`ll even sleep happily in the car if we play the Brandenburg concertos! Now up north, there has been a fresh fall of snow so Sasha has been discovering and playing in it.

We thank you again for a very special puppy. We`ll stay in touch.

Pat & Ron

Arrival in Toronto.

Sue – hope you can take a few seconds to enjoy Natasha’s latest exploits on Sharon’s Blog.

We have started to call her Tasha just because she moves so fast you don’t have time
to get three syllables out! She quite a pup… smart, inquisitive, energetic, photogenic and
loving. She and Sharon are inseparable….

Many thanks

"Wilson" from Buffalo, New York~

Hi Sue,

Thought you would love this picture of Alex and his best buddy Wilson (eight months old today!)

Wilson is always by Alex's side when playing in the yard, and in this photo they're looking at what is supposed to be our backyard ice rink! It's had limited use this year with our mild temps.

When it is frozen, Wilson loves running and sliding on it while the boys are at school.

I see from your website that Wilson's mom Dolly is due to have a litter anyday. It'll be fun to see the pics of Wilson's siblings.

Thanks again for all that you do in raising these wonderful, playful puppies!
