"Ranger" from Hot Springs Village, Arkansas~

Dear Sue,

I am so happy! Ranger and I worked very hard, and I am happy to announce that he PASSED his pet therapy test and is an official pet therapy dog!

I have already contacted the Hot Springs Pet Therapy group and we are ready to begin visiting nursing homes, day cares, libraries and schools - Reading with Ranger!

Ranger is such a sweet, affectionate, curious dog. My husband brought him to my fifth grade class the last week of school to visit, and he went around to meet every single student. The kids just loved him! And he had smiles and licks for each of them!

Hope you and your husband are doing well.

"Mikey", "Bailey" and "Cubby, Jr." from Indian Harbour Beach, Florida~

Life is good!

"Miss Willow" and her friend "Miss Jenny" from Clinton, New Jersey~

Hi Susan,

Hope this email finds you and Mike doing well and enjoying your new home.
Thought you might enjoy these photos of Willow on her western
adventure. She and her sister, Jenny, are having lots of fun and many
new experiences:
chasing small birds, butterflies and dragonflies; jumping between beds
when we've stayed in hotel rooms; getting the zoomies and using the
great room of our Idaho home as an obstacle course; discovering that
there are many animals out here that are much bigger than they are;
and making a few new human friends.

Willow has received several compliments on her personality ......
she's very friendly ..... a real people puppy!

A cute story to relate. I gathered up the pups' bedding and stuffed
toys for cleaning. As usual, Willow and Jenny were watching. I put the
items in the washer and went into the kitchen to wash some dishes.
Within a few minutes I heard Jenny barking frantically. I went to
investigate. As I was walking down the hall to the laundry room, I was
met by Willow who had an urgent look on her face. She quickly led me
to Jenny as both pups had seen their favorite toy, an orange fish,
being tossed around in the washer. They clearly thought that fish
needed help. The expression on their faces was absolutely adorable!

Photo details: Willow at Jenny Lake in Grand Teton NP; Yellowstone NP;
playing in the lingering snow on the Beartooth Highway (elevation
around 10,000 ft).

Hope you and Mike have a wonderful Summer.

"Bentley" from Buffalo, New York~

Hi Sue...

Hopefully you are somewhat settled in your new home!
Summer is a long time in coming this year. Last year we had tremendous heat at
this time.

I have included a pic of Bentley's cousin Petey from last weekend 6/8....the
next pic is Bentley with his "crew" cut for the summer 6/15. I figured he might
drown with all of his hair if I left it long! He is weighing in at 21 lbs.
keep in to you and your family,

Kathy and Bentley Buffalo NY

what a difference!

Brotherly love is the greatest gift!

"Miss Melody" and Sleeping Beauty~

Hello Sue,

Sorry it's been so long since we've sent new pictures!  It's been difficult to take pictures of our 2 moving targets!!  We hope you are enjoying today's weather.  Shelby and Melody are inseperable and hysterical to watch.  They spent many hours outside today and both will sleep well tonight.  It's funny to watch Melody in the evenings, she tells us when it's time for bed.  Tired puppy!!  Her favorite treat is peanut butter and knows when the jar is open. 

Hope you and Mike are doing well!

Happy Father's Day!

I just wanted to take a few moments to wish all the fathers in our High Calling Cocker family a Happy Father's Day.  I hope the day was a glorious one for each and every one of you! Please know I am sending much love your way!

Blessings always,


"Miss Bella" and "Miss Bethany" from very wet NC mountains~


Thought you might enjoy seeing Bella and Bethany's best friend Sierra, the Golden Retriever. These three get along so well and enjoy each others company. When we got home Bella and Bethany went sound asleep! The next morning, both ran to the car, they thought we were heading for another play date with Sierra! So funny! If everyone in the world could express such love and joy wouldn't we have an awesome planet! We can learn a great deal from God's special creatures!

"Winston" (Timmy) and his friend, Toby, from Connecticut~

Hi Susan,

Please see attached some recent pictures of Winston. He just turned two on June 14th. When we first got him you had named him Timmy. What a coincidence both me and my son's name is Timmy. He is the perfect little angel. He has a brother Toby, they get along so good together. If you can please put some on your blog.

Thank you

Tim and Lori from CT

"Mr. Watson" and "Mr. Wyatt" from North Tonawanda, New York~

Hello Sue,

I am glad to see you and Mike are in your new home. I hope you have many blessed years to enjoy yourself with the love of your life. I am doing okay and started my chemo. I am taking it one day at a time. My daughter Mary showed up here with my granddaughter to surprise me and also to help me out if I need it. They will be spending the summer with me. I have enclosed a picture of Gloria with the boys. She loves the dogs. She has decided she likes to sit on Watson and he lets her. Wyatt says no way lol. When they start playing with each other Gloria goes over and yells at them , it is 2 cute. I am enjoying this time with her to create a lot of memories. I will keep in contact with you when I can.

Love Dot
