Deb, Jim & Adam
"Just wanted to let you know how much we adore and appreciate Rosie. We all say 'she is so nice' and 'she is so cute' many times a day. She is very well socilized and loves everyone. She's lovely. Thank you!!"
"Teagan is such
a love. She is doing great. Gained a full pound since we brought her
home. She has been so wonderful for my son and he has really stepped up to
take responsibility for caring for her. She's
exactly what we needed and her temperament and energy level is
you so much!"
Danielle & Family
"Rosie is the most incredible dog, just as you said - so calm, sleeping through the night since day 1, no accidents, and an amazing personality. It doesn't hurt that she looks just like a teddy bear! We are so thrilled to have her in our family and I am happy to finally have a girl!"
"Thank you for bringing me into the world. Thank you for placing me with my family. May God bless you and your family!!! I'm forever grateful."

"Our little girl is so wonderful, kind and smart! She loves her crate. She goes in on her own when she wants a nap and she’s been sleeping in the crate great. She’s been walking great on a leash! We can’t get over how sweet and smart she is. She’s already learned sit!!"
"Charlie is doing amazingly well!!! She totally has potty training down. She has had no accidents in more than 24 hours!!! She is so smart! She also slept through the night last night 11:30 to 6:30. She is amazing and incredibly sweet. We love her so much! We also took her to the vet yesterday. The vet thought she looked great! Thank you for breeding such wonderful and sweet puppies."
"We are so in love! He's going potty outdoors and playing so well with the kids! Thank you so much!!"
"Murphy is the best- the star of our family! We meet alot of other TOTSL families on our walks and they all speak highly of your dogs, so keep up the good work! Hard to imagine life without Murphy."
"The love of our life. She is the most loving, gentle, snuggling dog in the world. Never makes a mistake. Everyone who meets her is instantly in love. If ever we decide on having another one we will definitely use TOTSL. She's been the easiest dog to train; she sleeps with us; and, her best friend is Finn our 20lb Maine Coon. Thanks again. Please feel free to give our name if anyone ever wants a recommendation. I remember feeling confused that you wouldn’t let us choose our puppy, thank you for that. You picked the perfect dog for our age and our living conditions. I’m sure you couldn’t have made a better choice."
"Just thought I would
let you know how much we love Pepper. She has a
wonderful personality and she is an easy going and fun dog. I think she thinks
she is one of the kids! Every morning as soon as she sees one of us coming into
the kitchen she rolls over for belly rubs. She loves to cuddle and hang with the
boys. Her best friend is the Corgi Tarzan next door. They have a great time
romping all over the yard. She is very athletic and quite a jumper. She could
have been a circus dog! She is very playful and even when she is in the yard by
herself or in the kitchen she will play with her toys. We can’t say enough good
things about her! Our house is hectic and loud but she rolls with our chaos.
After the boys happily opened their Christmas presents this year, they said it
was all great but nothing compared to getting Pepper last year. It was the best
Christmas present ever! Anyways just want to say thank you and we may be back
"Mookie hit 10lbs late last week, we couldn’t be happier and he hopefully
would tell you the same as his two sisters (and parents) love him to death and
he has constant company and playmates, and he loves the backyard and snow!"

kindergarten today! He is super sweet, smart and a fun
puppy. Everyone just loves him!"

his puppy. We are all enchanged with Loki and he has
become more confident and self-possessed. Thank you
for breeding such wonderful dogs!"
wanted to send you an update regarding George! He turned
one on 10/28 and is the best dog in the world! I bet
you hear that often. He is a wonderful addition to the
family. He has completed several levels of obedience
training including K9 good citizen!! He is very smart
and easy to train. His athleticism is like no other
as well. We are thrilled to have him in our lives. Thank
you for your hard work and dedication to your animals!!"
"Here is a great action shot of Fred playing in our backyard. He’s the
best!!! Thank you so much for the newest member of our

|I just discovered that TOTSL has a Facebook page. What fun! I'll start
following it immediately. Lola is growing up to be a lovely girl. Sweet, energetic, and great with my
two grandchildren. She's absolutely crazy about retrieving balls, especially on the beach
where she runs like the wind! She still has the Froggy you sent her home with and offers it proudly as an
enticement to play."
don’t know where to start to thank you for Marley.
She has been such an awesome addition to our family.
We are all totally in love with her. Words cannot express
how much we appreciate how you made this happen for
us. I know it’s only week one, but Sean has been going
off to school in the morning‘s so much easier. He gets
up every morning and sits on the kitchen floor with
Marley and plays with her before school. It puts
him in a much calmer spot to get on the bus. He
kisses her goodbye every day and says” bye pretty girl,
I will see you in six hours”. I know everybody
thinks their dog is special but I’m telling you this
dog is completely awesome. She has been sleeping awesome
at night. During the day she loves to play, goes
into her crate without any problem. I’m telling
you she is the best dog ever! Again, “thank you” does
not seem enough to describe how appreciative we are
for what you have done for our family."
Mike & Sean
just wanted to write to you and let you know how much
we adore our dog Butters! (Originally known as “Quinn”,
born July 2016/Dory and Rufus) Its been a little over
a year since we picked him up from you and we are so
grateful to call him our puppy son! Everyday we are
so surprised with how smart, funny and lovable he is.
Butters is such a little character and loves to do everything
with us (play fetch, swim, hike and is so eager to learn
new things) I even take him to work with me sometimes.
Butters has been an absolutely perfect fit. You did
an amazing job at selecting him for us! Thank you so
so much! We can't imagine life without him :)"
thought you would like to see Rowan with his family.
This was taken a few weeks ago. We have moved and it's
been hectic but as you said he doesn't care as long
as he is with us. And he is! We all love him so
much and he loves us back. He's a good boy and very
smart!! He still nips and chews but he's a puppy.
He gets a long with other dogs and he loves the attention
when we walk. Everyone stops to pat him and talk to
him. My husband said he's the George Clooney of
dogs!!! Thank you for this gift. We are so happy.
adore Penny. There really couldn't be a more perfect
dog! She's so incredibly smart and such a love!
She loves to cuddle with all of us and sleeps with
the kids at night. She's just as happy to hang out
at home as she is to go for 3 miles walks. Yet remarkably
she's never off the wall on days when we can only
do short walks. I'm still taking her to training
classes and at some point we'll start the therapy
dog program. She charms everyone we meet and people
always ask wehre we got her because everyone wants
a dog like Penny. So thank you for giving us the
best gift we could ever have wished for: pure joy!"
"Wanted to send along this
picture of Gatsby, as he approaches his 2nd
birthday. He loves the outside and
lays in the yard sunning himself for hours. His most favorite thing is swimming
in the pool. He swims around dragging his ball.
He runs the house but he is so sweet and
loving. He's healthy and happy. So glad he's part of our family.!"
was two years ago that Nico and I drove to Duxbury
to pick up Vita and I just need to say: THANK YOU!
They are the BEST dogs EVER!"
"Fifa is doing fantastic! We couldn't be more thrilled with a puppy! She is such a sweet girl! She has been sleeping threw the night, better than any of our kids ever did! Most nights 11-6! She's doing fine with potty, as long as we stay on top of it ;). We can tell she's definitely feeling comfortable - she started to whine a bit yesterday in her crate for the first time and she barked today....at a water bowl outside that she dumped over!!! We are head over heels in love with her! Thank you for all you did for us and to start her out so lovingly!

""I can't believe that it's been one full week with Fozzie Bear! I really don't know how I've lasted so long without a dog in my life! He is a wonderful companion! We've spent the past week getting into our daily routine, learning the rules, playing, and Fozzie has been doing plenty of napping! He is adjusting very well to the crate and sleeps all night. I have left the house for short trips and have tape recorded Fozzie to see how he handles things - for the most part, it's a few whines and then silence. We have taken a few short car trips and he is getting used to traveling in his crate. Fozzie is certainly a charmer - he loves people and attracts quite a bit of attention wherever he goes! I am enjoying every second with him! One of my favorite moments of the week was when I was cutting up green beans at the kitchen counter and he simply laid down right at my feet...so much love! Thank you for all of the hard work that you put into your pups. It is beyond clear that it is a labor of intense love and care...and I am so grateful that Fozzie had such a wonderful beginning to his life. Please enjoy a photo from yesterday...Fozzie learned "sit!"
so grateful for the wonderful experience you enabled us to have when adopting a puppy.
Anyone who has asked about our puppy now knows where to go to get an Australian
labradoodle puppy of their own!
Florent has been renamed to
Bode. We named him after US World Cup skier, Bode Miller. Puppy Bode is obsessed
with fresh snow and loves jumping off tiny snow piles. He already knows his name
and loves sprinting to us when we call him. His first puppy class was a success
and even though he is a little shy, he is ahead of all the other pups.
We love him so much!
Thank you for the best puppy anyone could ask for! "

| "Just have to let you know how much we love our pup, Rosie…from your Celtic
Rowan litter born August 22, 2015. You had called me when she was only 6 weeks old to let me know what a
sweetheart she was, how she rolled over to have her belly rubbed every time
someone came near, and she still does that. She is the most friendly, engaging
dog with people that I have owned over a lifetime of dogs. Her tail is always
wagging. We started her with puppy classes immediately, and her shyness with
other dogs was quickly overcome. She is so smart, and she was accelerated out
of puppy to adolescent because she was learning so quickly. She goes everywhere with us, and, for a puppy just under 5 months old, she
is well behaved. From her picture you will see that her rose nose and green eyes make
her unique, and so pretty. She looks a lot like Celtic Rowan to me as she
grows. She is 19 pounds and is still a perfect size for our lap.
Lori and family
have to tell you how much
we LOVE Toby (yes, we kept the name!!). He is absolutely adorable in every way
- loving, playful and a great disposition. We are all in love!! He’s been
amazing since Day 1. Slept in his crate on top of my nightstand the first
couple of nights, and has been next to our bed in the crate ever since. He goes
“to bed” around 9:30 pm and wakes with us at 6-6:15. He loves being outside, and
I take him for a walk around my block (which is about .8 miles) every morning.
We spend lots of time in the yard fetching balls, and he has recently started
digging, which is hilarious. He’s my little shadow! Thank you so very much for breeding such a sweet little puppy."

Tip of the Shore for giving
us this little guy! Westley came into our family at the perfect time. He was
able to meet, cuddle and love on our sweet Happy, 13 year old Golden
Retriever, who has since passed away. He has been a light in all of our lives
and has brought us so much happiness and unconditional love with his vibrant
personality. Westley is a recent graduate of Puppy Kindergarten who enjoys his
walks outside, running frantically in the backyard and snuggling on the couch
with his favorite toy! He also enjoys taking in all the compliments he receives
from any bystander on the street! Jackie, we admire your breeding and
sensitivity to placing the right dog with the right family. Your calls, updates,
pictures and follow-ups have been exceptional – more than we could have
imagined. From the entire Callery family, we are so thankful for this bundle of
pure joy! "

is an absolute delight! He is so well behaved, sleeps

mischievous....we just love him so much! We can't

compliment to your breeding. Rudy and I finished
up some training yesterday and the trainer asked
for your company name. She was so impressed
with Rudy's demeanor and the breed that she

Bryce. She is sweet, loving, fun, patient, friendly, etc... EVERYTHING we were
hoping for when we decided to add a puppy to our family".
| "We are so
happy with little Max, he couldn't be a better puppy. He is smart, handsome, and just
perfect in every way. I am so amazed at how smart he is, he is taking to crate
training and house training with barely a whimper or accident. He already heels,
sits, comes on command, and he is my little shadow; he follows me around the
house and watches everything I do. I want to thank you for breeding such a great
little guy who really is a bright bundle of joy, happiness and love in our
lives. He is so funny and has a great personality. The first day he was a little
timid and on his best behavior, but when he woke up after his first night here
he really came out of his shell. We played and learned all day, he loves to
chase toys and chew on his bone and rope, he loves his crate and doesn't mind
sleeping there or going in when we have to leave the house. He is testing his
height every day to see if he can jump on the sofa when he thinks we're not
looking, and it is very very cute. He is an exceptional puppy, and it is very
cute watching him test the boundaries of the pack and see where he fits. We both love him tremendously and are incredibly happy with him. I still
can't believe how perfectly everything worked out, but this guy was definitely
meant to be our puppy! Thanks again!

| "We wanted to give you a little update on our little Murphy McRuff.
He is amazing and such a good boy. He sleeps through the entire night
which started from the first night we brought him home! He is also almost potty
trained, with the exception of a few accidents now and again due to being
totally excited about playing with his 5 siblings. He is doing awesome at puppy
training and is super smart. He has brought so much joy to our lives. He
is growing so fast!! Here he is admiring how handsome he
is in the mirror (actually he was barking at himself.) Thank you for again for

10.9 pounds at his 12 week checkup. He is healthy and as you can see thriving.
I am stopped everywhere I go as people cannot believe how beautiful he

all too happy to let everyone know
about you and your wonderful dogs."

and all is well. She is by far the cutest, smartest, and most
engaging little girl ever.

in the street. She loves her crate, free time, corral and just about everything
and everybody! We are in heaven. Thank you again, again, and again!!"

such a joy and neither of us know how we lasted so long without having a dog.
Murphy has adapted to potty training so well.
He loves his crate and has slept through the night since his first night home.
Everyone who has met him has totally fallen in love with him and we just can't
imagine a life without our lil guy. It's quite obvious what a difference
"responsible breeding" makes in a pup, and how much love you have put into your
dogs. Thank you a million more times for giving us such a great dog and
turning us into a little family!"

thriving and is now about 18lbs and seems to be
gaining about a pound a week. She's incredibly smart, very loving and spunky at
the same time. Everyone is her new best friend!! People are constantly stopping
to pat her, comment on her soft fur and calm personality, and ask what kind of dog she is -- and I'm
only too eager to tell them about TOTSL. She has tons of
dog friends too although her BFF is Izzy, the Welsh springer spaniel next door.
They greet each other so eagerly and then wrestle and chase each other non-stop.
It's very sweet to watch. Greta has gone through a puppy class at the
MSPCA and even though she was only 14 weeks old when it was done, the trainer
said she was ready for obedience class, so we're doing that now. She's been
mostly house trained almost from day one. All of this is to say that I'm so happy with Greta
and think you did such an incredible job in preparing her to be the wonderful
puppy she is today. Here she is on a visit to Maine. She loves
the beach and even waded into the water! Thank you so much for Greta!!"

wonderful summer, meeting our neighbors, learning to both climb up and down

sweetest disposition, and everyone loves him, including our Veterinarian and all

Tucker. He is doing really well, is very healthy and growing at a fast past. His
disposition suits us very well as he is very friendly with everyone he comes in

been a pleasure as we take him for daily walks in the neighborhood. He climbed

bell to go out and sleeps all night!! We love him so much!

YOU! Tucker has exceeded our expectations in every way. He is

down balls and returns them when we play and he has gone potty outside from day
one - which I didn't expect at anytime in the near future! Plus he sits 75% of
the time I ask. He's just a dream, as he adapts beautifully to any situation.

puppy in winter would ordinarily be a piece of cake here in Maryland, but
surprisingly Weather Bug has listed this winter in Baltimore as colder than more
northern cities on most days. Thankfully our sweet Dory takes Polar Freezes,
snow, sleet, ice and howling winds the same as sunny days; whereas she makes a
bee line to the door when she hears a howling dog. At the first snowfall, Dory's
initial cautious curiosity quickly turned into frolicking exhilaration! When
she goes upstairs to our bedroom, she is ready to go right into her crate
...with her red blanket, hedgehog and Nylabone gifts from you:) She has never
soiled her crate. She loves every person she meets, but is a bit more selective
with her dog friends in that she prefers seasoned dogs to big rascally newbie
pups. She loves to run on the school fields near our home with her dog friends.
Our vet said Dory is a trim, healthy 14 lbs 9 oz at 15 weeks 4 days! We are
happy to announce that Dory is a graduate of her Puppy Basics class, is a
licensed dog citizen of Baltimore City, and is a Tip of the Shore Labradoodle

many generations of her ancestral pack. Dory is an awesome dog!!"
Annabelle, 'Tarah' became an immediate total member of our family. She is almost
always with us in the car as we run errands. This pup is the smartest and
happiest we have ever had. Tomorrow she will graduate from her second class at
Joseph's obedience school. He says she really has attitude and a mind of her
own, but she does follow commands when she is ready. Of particular note she
has a wonderful disposition towards all adults and children. To date she is 28.5
lbs of delightful energy. At Joseph's play day she runs at full speed for at
least an hour and gets along with all other dogs. She also goes to play
regularly with our daughter's older lab. She has tons of toys and we have not
lost a shoe, rug or piece of furniture. In all of our years of dogs, this is a
first. Two of our grand children's father died last spring. This puppy has given
them so much joy during these last few months. Needless to say she was a perfect

out!!! Honestly, he is extremely smart!! Of course I talk to him all the time
and he just looks at me like he understands every word I say!! He goes to
doctor's appointments with me, bank, drive-up sandwhich shop, etc. Everyone asks

could not be happier w/Ruby!! She is an awesome dog and was so worth the wait
for us. Our union was definitely meant to be! She is a wonderful puppy, a true
friend and companion. She loves to be with us and loves to please (and LOVES to
have her belly rubbed!). We’ve been to 3 puppy kindergarten classes and she is
the class star! During the hot stretch a few weeks ago, I bought her a
kiddie pool and she loved hopping in! She enjoys running on the beach and along the river.
She loves people. We had PET STOP come this week and
reactivate our electric fence for the yard and she was a quick learner there.
Karl, the Pet Stop guy, took one look at her and knew she was from Duxbury! You’re famous for your dogs!
I don’t have a recent photo to send, but she is the most

From the moment we meet you on our very first visit to your home we knew you
were the breeder for us! The love and devotion you put into your dogs was
apparent to us right away. It is obvious you are a true expert in what you do
and guided us through the process with such amazing weekly updates and were
always only a phone call away! Our puppy has been a joy to the entire family

buying another dog from anyone but you and have nothing but raving revues and

comes in and out of the house when you call him for 'Treats' or better yet
'Millo's Meatballs'. On command, he lies down, sits, puts head down, jumps up
(his favorite), barks, and wakes the kids up -- gives ear kisses. He lets me

look'. What a great decision we made to

are so grateful for our new family member. Leo is so loving and playful. He
happily greets every member of the family and is always calm when new people
arrive. He has been very easy to potty train and has quickly learned to come,

gone through. He is a very social dog and loves to play with other dogs. You

through the night and is very loving. He just finished all his shots (thank
goodness) so hopefully we will not be visiting the vet anytime soon. He has
brought such great joy into our family and we will be forever grateful. I have

nice fenced in backyard for her to run and play in! She is in love with it and

very sad and my heart was empty without them.....this is in a way a rebirth for
us! Thank you for all you have done for us and for Scrabble. This experience has been truly amazing for us. I consider having one of
your pups a privilege. You have made these eight weeks a wonderful journey (to
quote you). As you know our dogs mean so much to us. We care for them as we did
our children (better they say), therefore choosing the right breeder and puppy
was very important. We surely hit a home run! He is a very happy
boy. We LOVE him.
"I am a 46 year old woman with a wonderful husband and a 21 year old and 17
year old. Why in the world did I need a dog at this point of my life? I could be
travelling, going on last minute getaways, and being free. Not what I wanted.
There was a small void in my heart that I could not figure out. I needed
something to love and take care of-----that is when Jackie from Tip of the Shore
came into my life.
After our family visit with her and her dogs, we waited a few months to finally pick up the dog. Each week, however, Jackie
called and sent newsletters updating us on the puppies and their mom. The
newsletters were filled with pictures that allowed us to see every stage of the
puppies first eight weeks of life.
Shayna came into our life on July 21. What a truly awesome dog from the
beginning. She is absolutely beautiful and has the greatest temperament you could
dream of. Sleeps in her crate all night from day one. Sits and gave paw in the
I love her more than words can say. She is not only wonderful with us, but
with all that have
entered our home!
Cheers to you Jackie and Tip of the Shore for the greatest dog in the
"Chloe is the
sweet, perfect puppy we could have ever gotten. She is the center of our family.
I took her to the vet today and she weighed 13.5 lbs. She is so healthy and
has the best personality. She never barks! So I just want to thank you, thank you, thank you, for such a perfect
"Jimmer is such a good boy,
barks and loves to be loved and played with. He has lots of friends in the hood
and is friendly with every dog. He has tons of confidence and is
as sweet as can be. He's a
favorite in obedience class and eats like a champ (probably) too fast. He's potty
trained and slept through the night on day 2. He doesn't budge until I take him out of
the crate. Everyone in town loves him and he gets a ton of attention.
Jackie, well done, you breed wonderful pups! !
"We wanted to let you know what an amazing puppy Chewie is. From the moment
we got in the car to leave your house, he was a member of the family. He is
healthy, smart, intuitive, loyal, playful, and quite good-looking. He is a
perfect companion to our three boys. Every night he "puts them to bed" by
spending a little time in each of their rooms. Chewie is such a hit that he inspired his first school project. Our third
grader has done a research project on labradoodles! "
|"Bailey is doing great. She had her
recheck at the vet yesterday. She weighs 10 pounds now! She is such a good
dog! Everyone who meets her loves her. I don’t consider my Mom a pet person, but she loves Bailey. And Bailey
loves my Dad who had a stroke 20 years ago and has some trouble talking. (Last
time after they watched Bailey & the kids, he asked if she missed him!) And
get this – my 87 year old Grandmother said she would watch her anytime too!
Bailey is so
good when people visit us that people fall in love with her. My niece who is 5
counted the days until Easter at my house and cries when she leaves my house.
Bailey has won over my whole
is my little buddy when I work from home, follows me everywhere. Thanks for giving us such a great dog."
"Thank you for
providing me and my family with the greatest dog in the world!! Luna has been a
pleasure since the day we picked her up and so easy to train. She has brought
so much pleasure to our family and I consider her my very best friend! We
love her and include her in everything
"Darwin the Doodle continues to be a love!
We have him in puppy kindergarten, and his eager-to-please sweet temper has
made him the demonstration dog. He is also as cute as can be — taking him out
for a walk yesterday, I was immediately stopped by someone who wanted to take
his picture on her cell phone. We have a family tradition of saying something
we are thankful for every night before supper, and every night, the girls say
they are thankful for Darwin! He really is the perfect dog for
"Liesel is doing great! We are
having so much fun with her and she is such a good girl! She is doing great
with house training, and
just such a nice and fun personality. She doesn't get ruffled by much, has
really enjoyed meeting all the people who have come to see her, and when she's
tired she's starting to walk into her crate of her own accord just to
rest. Thanks again for all you
did to get her started -- we know so much of her confidence and socialization
came from you. We just love her to pieces!"
Pete, children & Liesel
is doing fabulous! People absolutely adore her and she loves
meeting them as well. She is already doing very well on the potty training and is
standing by the back door to let us know she needs to go.
After some training she now sits, stays, lies down, and plays fetch. She is the perfect dog for us and as
you said she is a companion dog. All Riley wants to do is be with a playmate or
at least someone to use as a pillow. Thanks so much for allowing us to have
the best dog ever."
Olivia (and Riley... woof!)
Cricket is a remarkable dog! Thank you for bringing her into our lives. She
has brought a new energy into our family with her sweet, playful disposition. We are all having a blast. Alex is so happy to finally have her puppy and is
very much in love. She handles many of the feeding & walks on her own and
loves to play with her and show her off to friends. Alex is not the only one to
have totally fallen for this darling dog. Not sure who is more smitten with
Cricket – Rick or me. Rick calls several times a day when at work to check on
her and she frequently jumps in his lap when he comes home. I feel like a new Mom
again and love to cuddle & play with her. I have to catch myself if I’m
bragging too much about my sweet, sweet puppy. Did I mention that Cricket is
gifted? Oh yes. She is. We’ve been having her little paw ring the
bell on the door before going out since day one. We were shocked when at least
3-4 times in the last week, she rang the bell by herself and she got down to
business immediately after we took her out! Rick has taught her to sit, lie
down, high five, and come and she definitely knows her name. As I said… gifted. Life is good with Cricket."
Pam, Rick, Alex & Cricket
"We've had Cody in our lives for two and a half weeks and we are
loving him! Cody is the most mild
mannered of all the puppies in his class and played well with all the puppies and had a great time.
Cody does really well at
quietly sleeps in the crate all night and he has had NO accidents in his crate!
We are doing really well. Cody is wonderful and we'll probably
be a repeat customer perhaps next year to get a friend for Cody."
" I love this
dog!!! Johnny Cash is so smart and fun. We built him his own little pen in the back
yard and he's mastered going to the bathroom there and only there. He fits
right in with our family. The kids love him so much! Benicio has taken on a lot
of responsibility with Johnny Cash. He walks him and he stays right by his side.
He sits on Benicio's lap in the car and sometimes they fall asleep together.
Their bond is already very strong. Johnny Cash has been very therapeutic for
him. He loves the water, we've been to the beach a few times with him. He's
been eating very well......and growing quickly! You were right, everyone
loves him, especially our family. He's been my little buddy too. When the kids
go to bed, we play around for a while until he gets tired and lies down in his
spot in front of the fireplace. He likes it there because the marble floor is
nice and cool. Benicio gave him a mini soccer ball that he loves- he's learned
how to fetch it and bring it back. I could go on but I just wanted to let you
know how much we love him and what a beautiful dog he is- both in looks and
our wonderful dog Rudy (Moxie & Rembrandt's
pup). Our son has been having horrible
nightmares about Monsters for weeks and getting
up at night and turning on every light in our
house! We decided to let Rudy sleep with him
thinking it might help if he was there with
him. On the first night Alex didn't get up once...RUDY
SAVED THE DAY! He has brought so much
joy to our house...watching him snuggle on the
couch with the kids...he is such a great dog.
We couldn't have asked for a better pet. Thank
you for holding onto him for us. We couldn't
"Just a quick note to tell you Lily met her sister, Lexx,
this morning!! We're back from Maine where she had a great summer and
is adjusting to 'city life' on a leash. She's 16 pounds now and as you said
will be on the shy side we think of 25. We love having her and thank you again
for launching us!"
Debbie and John
am beside myself in love with this boy! We went to the
vet today and they were quite impressed with Tip of
the Shore and Finn. He is a healthy happy pup. Thanks
for the great start. I am eternally grateful for the
treasure you have given our family."
"I wanted to
send you a note to say hi and let you know that our boy Otis is fabulous. Words
can’t describe how much we love him. Thank you for such a great gift. Not a
day goes by without the kids hugging and telling him that he is 'the best dog
EVER.' He is just awesome. He has a
great personality – very funny and playful. Don’t be surprised if
you get another message from me in the spring about being put on a list for a
sister for Otis."
