Hi Debbie,
Murph is the best dog ever!  He is
calm and friendly, yet silly and
entertaining.  He is always by my side .
He lays in his bed outside the kitchen
when I cook, sleeps in his kennel at
night without a peep, and rings the bell
if he needs out.  I couldn't be happier.  
He was even easy when we took him
kayaking at the lakes... he just fell
asleep in my kayak!  Thanks!

Hello Debbie,

I just wanted you to see how Maya is
doing. She just completed her puppy
training courses. She was a star!
Thank you so much. Her temperament
is perfect to be a therapy dog.

Hi Debbie, its Joan Wilson and Rosie?
As we prepare for Rosie's birthday
tomorrow, I am sending my sincere
thank you and million times over and
over for allowing me to have Rosie.
She has brought more joy to my life
than I ever imagined, We are
progressing with our training and she
is so easy. We just passed our good
citizen canine test and now attend the
childrens library where the children
read books to the dogs. Las week we
were able to go to an assisted living
place and visit the eldery, that was
very enjoyable. Everone heree loves
Rosie. I cant take her anywhere that  
people dont stop me and want to pet
her. She goes everywhere with me
even out to dinner and of course our
best time together i hiking in the
morning with my hiking group. Thank
you again for my awesome dog. I
absolutely love her.
Sincerlly and with kind regards Joan
Hi Debbie,
This thank you email is long overdue!  I
wanted you to know how much I LOVE and
appreciate my Rosie.  She is better than I
ever imagined thanks to you. She is cute
beyond words and I take her everywhere.  
People are constantly stopping to ask if they
can pet her.  You were right she is a show
stopper, plus she is ever so SMART!  Potty
training was a breeze and puppy school is
most enjoyable.  We have had some private
lessons and she is so willing to please
along with quick to learn.  She hikes with me
and is learning to walk on her lease like a
little lady.  Don’t get me wrong …she is still a
puppy but we are having fun working on our

She is crate trained but sleeps with me at
night and is such a cuddle bug!!

I am so grateful to have such a wonderful
friend and could not thank you enough.  Our
goal is to obtain our therapy certificate so we
can visit children’s hospitals.  Most
important…my life is much happier since
I always sing your praises whenever people
ask me where I got Rosie.

Most Sincerely,
Joan and Rosie / California
WE DID IT!!! :)

Anyone who knows me knows that
getting to class is really really hard for
The past three semesters I’ve been
taking all online classes to avoid it. But
today, I decided to conquer that
anxiety and I sat through an ENTIRE
CLASS and I LIKED IT! Feeling all
sorts of happy today ☺️
Remi is a champ and my best friend
forever ��

Congratulations to both!
So proud of you!
Good Morning Debbie
Jaggy in need of a brushing this
morning and his least favorite of all
He has had his 3 month shot and is 10
lbs We love him so much and he
knows it His playful puppy ways keep
us laughing but then, has a very calm
temperament that is so easy to be with
He sleeps with me and a sweet little
kiss when he has to potty I know you
hear this regularly but thank you for
your experience and dedication to
these babies Hope this finds you well
and your husband better by now All
the best Mary
Hi Debbie,
As I work in my office with Rosie at my
feet I couldn’t resist sending you
another email to say how grateful I am
to have Rosie.  She is beyond what I
ever expected!  Thank you for this
precious little puppy that I sooooo
love.  We are almost potty trained, she
goes everywhere with me (even out to
dinner) and we are having our second
private training this Tuesday.  In
August, we will join in on classes.

Thank you again for your knowledge
and as being the best breeder ever!

Regards,Joan, CA
Hi there Debbie,

Thank you for the wonderful binder and all
the goodies inside the box.  I'm happy she's
coming a day later since it will give me a
chance to study!
I'm so impressed with your thoroughness
and attention to detail.  I have a lot to learn.
I'm curious as to what was the criteria for the
other puppies being chosen before
Whimsy?  I never saw what the others looked
like but I so loved her expression that she
would have been my first choice.  Was it
personality?  I saw a video of Mr. Green and
he looked like he had a lot of energy.
Thank you again for all the great information.
You have done an outstanding job in
preparing me for Whimsy and bringing me
up to date on puppy rearing.  You've done a
super job!!!

Hi Debbie,

Just wanted to update you. Duke is just
about eight months now and doing great. We
adore him and he loves all of us. He’s
adjusted well and has grown to be gentle
with the children while still having great
energy. He loves to play and snuggle with all
of us, great family dog! Wanted to say thanks
again for such a great pup and I’m including
a couple of updated pics of him with my 9
year old as she’s giving him his daily
morning hugs.

Best, Jen S.
Wilmington, MA
Hi Debbie!

Just wanted to let you know that Mister
Blue is doing great! He’s completely
adjusted and is very popular in SF!
We love him so so much!

Hi Debbie

I want you to know Bandit has worked out
perfectly in our family.  He was a good puppy,
easy to train, and always eager to please.  
Three grandchildren keep him very busy with
lots of attention.  He enjoys walks around our
neighborhood and frequent walks to the
beach here in Huntington Beach.  Bandit is
smart, obedient, lovable and very healthy.  He
receives many compliments on his
We had a one year birthday party for him on
November 12.  He is getting excellent care
including frequent grooming.  We all
appreciate the fact that there is no odor or
dog hair problem.
I am very glad we discovered Fern Ridge on
the Internet over a year ago.  I hope all is well
with you.
I let everyone know about you who might be
interested in a puppy.

All the best--Ken

Hi Debbie, here are a couple of
pictures of our Doodle Bug. Cricket in
Minnesota born 11-13-16, son of De
De and CharlieWhat a character and a
snuggler. We love his size at 16”. He
doesn’t shed He sure is smart, has
learned lots of tricks. His favorite
things to do includes riding in the
Jeep, riding on the pontoon (with his
life vest of course), and playing in the
snow with his toys in the winter, and
playing outside with his toys in the
summer and in his kiddie pool. He has
quite the life. I think he’s a happy boy. I’
ve been trying to talk my husband into
getting another doodle. No luck so far.
Hope you have a great 2018!
Mary Nyberg family and Cricket.
Hi Debbie!  
Thank you again for all of your attention and
help to make sure that Spencer arrived in LA
with no issues or difficulties.
He is an amazing little guy. As you
mentioned during our email exchanges, he
is very attentive and is the cutest guy ever! As
I walk him in a restricted area, people come
across the street and we are stopped every
day multiple times. . . .I think I will have to get
a vest or harness for him that indicates that
he is in training so that we can do the
training work on the agenda!
We started puppy kindergarten for learning
and socialization as well as having a few
personal lessons. The instructor uses
Spencer repeatedly to demonstrate the new
commands because he is so willing to learn,
learns quickly and is very responsive. He has
bouts when he is very active but most of the
time he is a mellow little guy and he provides
lots of comedy here at the house every day!  
Thank you again for all that you do!  
All the best-
We are so grateful to Debbie for our
sweet, sweet pup Roggie (Darla and
Lance, May 2017)! He is playful,
curious, cuddly, and oh-so-smart! We
get compliments on his looks and his
temperament wherever we go. He is
the perfect addition to our little family-
thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hope you are well!!

Thanks again,
Lizzie, Andrew, and Roggie
Hi Debbie,

Just a quick update on Toby.  He did great at
his first vet appointment today where he got
his nails trimmed, a good bill of health, and
his booster shot.  He will go back in three
weeks for more shots and a stool sample
check.  He weighed thirteen pounds
He behaved well in the car on the way home,
even though it was a long drive.  He has
slept in his crate all night long since his first
night with us and never barks or whimpers
until about 5:30 am.  He walks well on the
leash and is almost completely potty trained.  
The poochie bells work well, and he knew
how to use them from the first day.  We have
exposed him to lots of other dogs and
people, and he gets along well with all.  I
couldn’t be more pleased with him.
Here is a current picture, taken today after his
vet appointment. Thank you for everything.
Ed, WA.
Hi Debbie…
We all love Charlie. He is such a
happy boy. We had a visit with the
neighbors and they loved him as well. I
have babysitters coming out the ears.  
He slept great in bed with me last
night. We went out once at 2 AM for a
potty break and then he slept until 6
AM. He's a very good boy and well on
his way to being housebroken.

Marie, Eugene, OR
It was great to meet you today, and
thank you so much for Birdie. She
seems to have settled into our home
quickly and we are already so in love
with her. We had a wonderful
experience with you and are so happy
with how things turned out.

Hi Debbie-

We could not be happier with Mr Maca"Roni"
(Mr.Teal from  Cola x Charlie 2017). At just
under 7 months, although he is headstrong...
he is sweet and willing to learn anything.  He
has been in cars/trucks, grocery stores,
parks, coffee shops, wineries and
restaurants.  He acts perfectly in all aspects,
especially when he has his training vest on.  
He doesn't bark, kennels, loads and now
waits at all doors to be asked to enter.  He
knows both verbal and hand cues for come,
sit, stay and up/down.  He spends my long
days at the office visiting with our patients,
calming their nerves and bringing joy to their
We are training him to be a service dog, but
will not know for over a year if he can
recognize anxiety before an attack is
underway, but he certainly already qualifies
as a therapy dog.  My daughter (dog bite
victim) has completely bonded with him and
he has brought back our faith in the family
dog.  Although I still will never trust others
dogs when they say "he is great with kids", I
know longer have (as severe) of
panic attacks when I see or even hear the
word dog��.
Thank you so much for matching us with the
perfect companion.  Both of my kids love him
so much. Tammy, Oregon
Riley is such a smart puppy and eager
to please. Lots of mouthing and
jumping as to be expected but if we
are consistent and attentive he does
learn quickly.   And growing so fast too!

you have of Fancy on the website.
He is getting big, already 36 pounds!
Nice and strong, he hikes about 5-7
miles, 4-5 days a week. Somehow, he
does still have energy to rip up paper!!

additions to our family.

Hi Debbie!  
We gave Sweet Pea extra birthday
hugs from you! She is doing fantastic!
Here's a couple pics we took of her
getting an extra birthday treat- her
favorite, pancakes!
We love her so much and we can't tell
you thank you enough for entrusting
her to us! She has brought so much
joy to our family and literally changed
the life of our daughter Abigail. Every
who meets her instantly loves her.  
She is such a sweetheart!!
Albany, OR
Rusty has brought so much joy to our family.
Such a loving, playful, smart lil guy. He
sleeps just as hard as he plays. He loves to
cuddle with his cow and sleep belly up. His
new Sister, Gracie, is cautiously optimistic
about his puppy exuberance. He's doing
great with sit and down, and no accidents in
the house in 5 days! The training bells have
been a wonderful success. It's so much fun
watching him learn and explore.
Tammy, CA.
Update on Mr Macaroni- "Roni":

He is the sweetest little thing, he loves
to snuggle, his most active moments
are at 5am,�� but that too is short lived
and he is back to following around
Bella. Bella says "I love snuggling with
him, he is like my baby, and I never
want to hurt him".

Love Bella

Just wanted to give you another
update on Chase. He been adjusting
very well. He's already potty trained.
We haven't had any accidents in over
a week now. Thank you for such a
great puppy.

Hi Debbie,

Tessa is from bubbles last litter she will
be one in March. Mattie and her just
graduated from beginning obedience
class and are now enrolled in the
intermediate class. There is another
dog from you in the class her name is
Chloe she is training to be a therapy
dog. Tessa is doing great! Here are
some pics from her graduation. Sorry
not the best pics but oh well:)
Hello Deb!
Kahlua is going great!! She's so
amazing! I looked at your site and fell
in love with Ms. Caramels color. I wish
Boots and Charlie had a girl!! I love
those dogs so much!!

Hi Debbie: Just touching base to let you
know how we're doing. Finley is so smart
and seems to be adjusting really well. The
first night I needed to come to the crate
several times to comfort her, but last night I
stayed on the couch (and we both got some
needed rest). She's reliably doing her
business in the yard and adores the
doorknob bells although hasn't yet fully
grasped their real purpose, but we're
working on it.  
Today I saw the first indications of her lively
side. I pulled out a plastic water bottle as you
recommended, and it was a huge success!
At first it frightened her because it rolled and
"talked" when she bit on it, but tonight she
approached it fearlessly. She's enjoying our
forays around the yard.
Your packet is so helpful, lots of great
articles, thank you!
I did join the FB page and will post Finley's
photo there now.

All the best to you, Pat, Eugene, Or.
Hi Debbie,
I hope all is well with you. I'm sorry that
it's been so long since I updated you
on Beau. As you can see, he's
wonderful. We're waiting to start him in
the next obedience class. He's so
smart already though. He sits, stays,
comes, heels fetches, gives his paw,
and he even knows his left from right.
Only issue we've been dealing with is
him chewing, but we're getting through
it. Thank you for such a great dog! I'll
try to keep you updated more often.

Best, John
Hi Debbie! Sorry I haven't emailed for awhile,
we've been busy enjoying the end of our
summer and gearing up for the start of the
new school year.  Here's a picture of Sweet
Pea sending Abigail off to her first day of 5th
grade today.  Sweet Pea is doing excellent!!
We are so thrilled with her! We love her to
pieces! She has bonded so well to Abigail
and has helped her be so much more calm
and confident already. We had so much fun
camping with her this summer. She
absolutely loved the beach and made all of
our family (whom we were camping with) fall
in love with her!  She has even made friends
with my parents' 2 cats!  In fact, everyone who
meets her, loves her immediately! We feel so
blessed to have her part of our family. Thank
you again, we are so grateful! ~Krista
Hi Debbie,
I thought that you might like to see this photo.
This is already one of many but the first one
where we managed to get all 3 kids and
Kobe to look at the camera! I had a great chat
with Mary Ann on Wednesday. She told me
how she had put Kobe to bed when he was
at her house - we are all sleeping very well
now!!! I suppose it would have been smart of
me to have asked the question before he
arrived home.
Kobe is doing really well. Playing hard,
listening well, being loved eating well and
sleeping lots too. We are all so happy that he
is port of our family.

Thanks for breeding a gorgeous puppy!  
Dear Debbie,
Hi!  Rosie is an amazing puppy and we
love her so much!  She has been
doing really well!  She sleeps through
the night in her crate and is doing well
with potty training.  We all love her
very much.  She has a such a sweet
disposition and is so much fun to play
with and be with.   
Thank you so much! All the best,
Anne, Dan, Dylan and Sara
Hi Debbie-
I hope all is well in the great Northwest.
Scraps is doing phenomenal. He
turned 2 last week is the very best,
smartest, calmest, sweetest pup in the
world. I cannot have imagined loving a
dog as much as I love him. He comes
with me everywhere and he is truly
best friends with the kids.

My husband purchased our Labradoodle
Charlie from you in May 2014. Charlie was
from Spanky and Kadie born February 23,
2014.   I have been going to email you for
quite sometime to tell you what an AMAZING
Labradoodle he is.  I own/operate a
preschool for children 3-5. I teach a total of
60 different students.  Charlie goes to school
with me each day and is my students best
friend.  The children love him so much.  He is
so gentle and kind.  His temperament is truly
unbelievable.  Charlie has become the icon
of my school.  I will send pictures for you to
see.  My husband passed away last
December and Charlie has truly been my
love and support.  He is by my side at all
times.  I can't tell you enough how much I
love him and what a wonderful companion
he is.
I would love to have another Labradoodle for
him to play with.  I look forward to visiting with
you more.   Thanks - Penny, Idah
Hello Debbie!

Attached is a photo of the sweetest
dog in America!  Rosie has been an
absolute delight and we are all madly
in love with her already. Her coat is so
gorgeous and her temperament and
fun personality win everyone over who
comes for a visit.  Thank you so much
for everything--her "Go Home" puppy
kit has been so helpful and we are so
impressed by the potty training and
night time routine with her crate.  I
think Rosie read the book before we
did! I can't believe how smart she is!  
At night, we all want to snuggle with
her, but realize that she loves her
den/crate and probably needs a break
from us!  Rosie has been a dream dog
for us and we can't imagine how we
went so long without a pup like her!

More photos soon but this one my son
Charlie wanted me to send you
because of her new collar. Thank you
again and I can't tell you how many
people ask and I am happy to tell them
who and where we got our Rosie from.

Hope you have had a nice few weeks
and we hope to see you soon!  
Whitney Edman and family
Hi Debbie!!
Tessa is doing awesome! We are so in
love! Once I get pics downloaded from
my camera I will send you some! She
is excellent In her kennel, eats well,
and sleeps well. Pretty darn near
perfect!:)  She has played with her
brother Jax twice. He's bigger so the
first time he jumped on her and they
ran around playing but the second
time she was a little fireball and kept
taking all his toys! Ha ha ha
Thanks Again Heather
Good Morning Debbie...

Finn is doing great!  He is now a canine
good citizen and goes Saturday to be
screened for the animal therapy program at
the hospital.  If he is accepted, he will attend
a series of training classes at the hospital.  I
think he will do great.  He is currently involved
in the READ program and goes to several
elementary schools.  He is doing great for
his age (16 months)... Getting better with
each visit.

I have a grooming question.  I'm not sure
what to do with his tail.  As you can see, the
hair is fairly long.  Should I shorten it?   I want
to groom Finn to represent the breed

Take care...
Mary Anne Wheeler, FL.
Dear Debbie,
I hope your husband is doing fine now.
I have enjoyed my Sochi so much. She
is quite the people dog once you pass
her test. So many people I run into
love the dog and I have given out your
name many times. I may have to get
another one, once we are fully trained.
We start obedience school Feb first.
So far she is learning... Except for the
come. If she is busy or playing with the
ranch dogs.. Just looks at me with the
"I don't think so" and runs off!
We shall overcome!
Thanks for such a great puppy !

Best Mary, Texas
Hi Debbie,
Happy New Year! I wanted you to know
Phoebe is doing great! She loves
going on walks and playing on the
greenbelt with other dogs. She's
completed basic puppy class and
we're continuing on with intermediate
class in 2 weeks. She loves to go and
she's quite the talker. Thank you for
giving us such a wonderful dog!!
Take Care,
Rosa McGowan
Dear Debbie

Sadie had a great Christmas. She is
doing well and loving all of the
attention.  She is a great addition to
the family. Merry Christmas and Happy
New Year.

Jackie, NJ
I just had to write again to tell you how happy
we are to have little Cooper join our family.  
He has been a piece of cake, and I'm not
kidding when I say I think he's already potty
trained.  He asks to go out, and goes on
command when he gets distracted.  He is
holding his own with our little female Elsie,
and today they have been sharing my lap and
their toys. He's so mellow- just the right mix
of playful and calm. He sleeps in his crate all
night without making a peep, and I even
leave the door wide open!  He has bonded
with my slippers and is the only puppy I've
heard of who sleeps on slippers instead of
chewing them up.  Thank you for sharing him
with our family; I'll continue to send you
updates but just had to tell you what a joy
he's been.  Hope you had a Happy
Kind regards,
Caramel Boy’ aka BJ will be 6 months
tomorrow and I thought it was time to send
you some update photos.  He is 38-1/2 lbs
and about 19” in height.  We are absolutely
head over heels with our labradoodle!!  He is
so loving, gentle and even well-mannered.  
We have been amazed at how easy he has
been to train—in some cases he doesn’t
even need to be trained it is like he knows
how he should behave.  He loves his huge
pile of toys and treats them all with respect;  
loves water whether it be mud puddles,
wading pools or the spray nozzle or just plain
old rain;  loves to run and run and run;  loves
to snoop (particularly in the trash can); loves
to play fetch but really, really likes to play
fetch when he gets a cookie treat; loves to go
for rides;  loves everybody and just can’t wait
to play with other pooches.

He is a family member now and we can’t
imagine life without him.  Thank you for
allowing us to have him.

Jeri B.
Hey Debbie....
I hope all is well with you.  What a fantastic
year of beautiful puppies!  I know you must
be proud.  I want you to know how proud we
are of Finley (Darla x Spanky) and what joy he
has brought us this first year.  He is
absolutely the apple of our eyes!  He is kind,
sensitive, loyal, obedient, and playful.  He
loves the water and looks forward to paddle
boarding and boat riding.  He is also an
amazing retriever.  He excels in obedience
class and will take his CGC test next week.  
He will begin attending children's reading
groups in the elementary schools in
October.  As you can see....he is truly
amazing.  Thanks so much for breeding
such wonderful dogs!!  Here are a few
pictures of him...

Take care, Debbie...Mary Anne

Hi Debbie,

I just wanted to send you a few new pictures
of Archie at 13 weeks.  The first pic is after he
took his first walk in the rain.  He was
drenched.  Then we gave him a bath and
brushed him in the other two pics.  He is
doing great.  He has been such a great
puppy.  We thoroughly enjoy having him be a
part of our family.  We took him to our first
puppy class yesterday.  He did a great job
especially since he already knew all the
basic comments.  He is very smart and very
calm (for a puppy :)).  He is doing well in his
crate and hasn't had any accidents since the
first week.  Hope all is well with you.
Thanks.  Hope you are doing well.

Hi Debbie!  I hope all is well for you!  
It's been a few years since
Hunter came to join the Beasley family
but just wanted to send you an
email to let you know much we love
having him part of our family and
can't imagine our lives without our
loving guy!  Of course I am
biased, but he is truly the best dog on
the planet!  We love to jog
together, play, and of course lay
around! Take care!

sweet, and very smart!  We couldn't be
happier, thank you!

She did great and the groomers had
nothing but wonderful compliments to
say about her temperament and
manners. Yesterday my 3 year old
dressed her in doll clothes. Georgia
wasn't impressed but was so tolerant.
At only 4.5 months old, i'm so
impressed. We are so lucky to have
such an amazing puppy! Thank you
for the best dog ever!

Thanks so much for everything Debbie. Great
to meet you. Knew you had to be a very
special person to breed such great dogs.
Harvey is an amazing dog and must be a
fantastic companion. We made it home.
Long trip. Take off was delayed 2 1/2 hours.
Fortunately Sandi stole the show and Delta
staff loved her. Helped me figure out where
she could pee in a secure airport!  In the soft
crate for takeoff and landing. Otherwise in my
lap. Tyler is warming up to her slowly but
surely. Cats are cautious. She loves to eat for
sure.  She is beautiful and the bonds are
already strong. Will update you as she
grows. Thanks again. Big hug.

Hi Debbie,
Ceto is adjusting well to her new
home.  Ceto is very brave around the
chickens and wants to play with them.
(The chickens do not feel the some. :)
Ceto rings the bells to go out, is
starting to recognize her name, and
gets 'come', 'sit', and 'touch' most of

being with us for 3 days! We'll let you
know how puppy training class goes

Hi Debbie,
Finley is safe and sound and doing
great!!! He was quiet for just a few
minutes and then he quickly warmed
up to us:). My heart is so full!!!
He is cuter than his pics, and we are in
love!!!  We will send pics in the weeks
ahead so you can see how he is

Thank you!!

Dear Debbie,
We got home late last night. Teddy did
fine in the car sleeping most of the
time. He was a little nervous when we
got home but he slept 6 hours in his
crate on our bed beside us. He is
doing very good now and already
started training. We wanted to thank
you for the wonderful kid you gave us.
He is such a blast and filled our house
with joy and love... I'm attaching some
pictures. We will keep in touch...

Hi Debbie,    
Hope all is going well!  I thought I
would share a couple of  pictures from
our day trip to Crater Lake this past
weekend.  Brody loves the snow!  He
is such a good boy we are so happy
with him. Brody weighs about 17lbs
and is doing great.  He is very well
adjusted and makes my day when I get
home from work. ;).  
Hi Debbie,

Just wanted to send you a recent
photo of Koji. He's growing up so fast
--he's about 12lbs now. He's in puppy
school and doing really well...he learns
very quickly! We are having such a
great time with him and he's a huge hit
in the neighborhood. So many
compliments on his good behavior and
beautiful coat! Thank you so much,
every day he brings laughter to our
house :)

Hi!  Our little girl dog is 19 pounds plus
now!  She’s lots of fun but can be a
real stinker!  We’re thinking she’ll end
up weighing 25 pounds!  We love her
“white missteps” and white on her

Here’s a recent photo of her right after
her first grooming, which was a week

Hope all is well with you.

Hi Debbie, Just wanted to let you know that
we were at a dog park in Tucson yesterday
and a woman with a wonderful standard
poodle wanted to know all about Hope.
That's not unusual as everyone comments
on her looks and her temperament. But this
woman commented that she was beautifully
bred. Kudos to you. Hope is just about 11
months and 1 month into our snowbird trip.
She is doing very well. Because of coyotes
we need to keep her on a leash so we look
for clean, safe dog parks. She loves to play
with other.dogs and is great with them. She
is quite the runner and loves to be chased. In
another year I would like to get her a
playmate but think I might not be able to do a
pup again so will probably look for an older  
dog. Hope is turning into the best dog ever.
Thanks. Terry
Hi Debbie-
All is well in Boston and we are very
glad you liked the card. Scraps is an
angel. He is smart and sweet and so
calm. We love him. He is a star in our
We will keep in touch.
Happy Holidays and all best wishes for
a healthy, happy New Year.

Scrap's great family in Boston!
Hi Debbie,
We have named lime boy "Brody" and
we love him!!! He is such a sweet boy.  
He is doing very good on the potty
training, we love the bells. I think he is
getting use to his new house and is
getting comfortable with his
environment. Thank you we are very
happy and proud to have him in our
Hi Debbie,
I hope all is well. I just wanted to send
you a note to let you know that Bailey
is doing well. We still have some
issues with her eyes but we've gotten
the irritation under control. She loves
being a big sister, though she doesn't
always realize how little Addyson still is
:) I've attached a picture of Bailey and
Addyson together. I hope you have a
great holiday season.

Hi Debbie  
Jasper is doing great!  She's 9.11 lbs.
now. Got her 2nd distemper shot
yesterday. Gets along fine w/ our
daughter's pointer dog Hank. Has so
much energy!  Sits for us and brings
the ball back when thrown and expects
her treat. Lays down under table by
Bill during meals. Loves that rawhide
treat you included in her going home
bag. Need to get another like it!

Hi Debbie.
Have been remiss about sending pic
but am making a conscious effort to
capture Simon. He moves so quickly I
usually get just a furry behind. Will
send some Christmas ones. He is a
true joy, we love him and he us. He
goes with me everywhere and is the
perfect traveler. I have never known a
dog that is so sweet. He truly loves
everyone and every other living critter.
He is intuitively smart and he almost
speaks by expressions alone. Thank
you for our wonderful boy. Will send
some cuter pictures soon. Fondly Kay
and Mark.
Hi Debbie,
Thank you so much for the photos and
everything you've done for Wexley and
us. We are head over heels in love
with her!! She's such a wonderful
dog...it's beyond words.

She's settled in perfectly well and
seems to be loving life :)
We'll be in touch with plenty of pictures
and updates.
Have a wonderful week.

Dear Debbie
Here are a couple of 9 month photos
of Hope. (Kadie and Spanky 2/23) She
is an amazing dog and a beauty.
Everyone at the vet just loves her. So
smart. I was surprised that she was
only 24.9 lbs!!! Seems like she has
quit growing. Long legs! Doing lots of
training. . We are off to Florence
Oregon today for Turkey Day and
starting to plan our RV trip for January.
Hope is a great traveler.

We just love her. Thanks. Terry

weekend.  He is such a love - thank

Hi Debbie,
Just wanted to give you an update
on little Hallie. She is so smart,
happy, healthy and growing like
crazy. We love her so much and she’
s adorable. She picked up potty
training within just a few weeks and
sleeps through the night. Walks on
the leash and loves to play. She
and I are enrolled for Puppy
Kindergarden in late July :)
Thank you again for such a
wonderful pup.

Hello Debbie,

It's been a couple years since we've
purchased "Beau" from you. I
apoligize for not getting in touch
sooner. I just wanted to let you know
hat an incredible family member
Beau has Been. Truly wonderful,
smart and very loving. I thank you
so much for your time and patience,
and if I ever need another, you will
be the first person I reach out to.

Thanks again,

Hello Debbie,

I just wanted to reach out and say
thank you for such a wonderful
pup.  We are completely in love with
Charlie.  He is affectionate, sweet
and laid back.  He is a fast learner
and has become my constant
companion.  I can’t imagine a better
dog for our family.  He’s such a little
love ❤. (Boots x Charlie kiddo)

Sincerely, Amy L.
Resting and drying out after
chasing birds in the rain at the
Atlantic shore this morning. They
are inseparable and fantastic dogs.
The result of tremendous breeding.
Hard to believe Tyler is already 5

lbs and Tyler is 38 lbs. So smart
and so loving and lovable. Hope all
is well with you Debbie.

Hi Debbie,
It's Donny and Sonna,

Tucker had a great day today. He was so
good on the road. We stopped several
times and he became very playful. He had
his tail wagging lots today.When we
arrived home and he met our son, he took
to him right away.He has so naturally
integrated into the family today that we are
He has done all his business, is drinking
water and eating.
We will keep you posted.
We look forward to writing a review for
you.You are so professional in your
handling of your operation at

get one of your babies.
I have sent in the application with the
transfer code already and applied for

  Hi Debbie,
Just wanted to send you an update on
how Barney is doing! He did so great on
his first day at our home. Explored the
whole apartment and found all his favorite
places like under the coffee table. He didn’
t cry at all on his first night in the crate. He
has been sleeping so well and even does
well in the crate in the car when we have
to run for a quick errand.
He loves everyone he has met and even
met a young child today (under very close
supervision) and Barney was very sweet
and gentle with him. Barney gets right in
on the action.
He loves to cuddle and play and loves to
look at himself in the mirror :) He also
likes to chew on our hands and arms and
legs when we play so we are working on
having him be gentle and not bite so hard.
Thank you so much for bringing this little
guy into our lives. We are so in love with
him and know he’s going to grow up to be
such a wonderful dog.
Thank you!!!
Melanie and Turner, Eugene, OR
Hi Debbie,
Matt and I wanted to send you an update
on our girl Camas (Boots x Harvey,
4/26/16) and let you know that she is
doing great!
We've completed four good dog classes
at Training Spot (we highly recommend
them) and Camas does phenomenal at
class. She is so smart, maybe too smart,
and eager to work. We love her so much
and she has brought so much joy and
excitement to our lives and everyone else
she meets. Matt takes her to work a
couple of days a week and she has
become the unofficial mascot of his office.
Here are some pictures from our most
recent beach trip and one that shows her
coloring really well (she has a really pretty
red tinge on her face and during the
summer so does some of her coat). The
beach is absolutely her favorite place to
run wild and free. I always say the beach
is her spirit animal...

We hope to get another doodle from you
All the best, Matt and Kate
Hi there,

Hope this email finds you well. Just
wanted to say hello and yet again
rave about Finn. We couldn't be
happier with him, he's just the
sweetest, smartest thing. I'd have 5
more of him if I could!

Take care, happy holidays,

Hi Debbie,
We wanted to send you an update
on Charlie who turned two this past
June.  His parents are Harvey and
Mary.  Thank you for breeding such
a wonderful dog.  He is smart and
fits right in with our family
adventures! He loves going for
walks, runs (We have to spell both
or he gets so excited when he hears
those words) and car rides. We got
tons of snow last year and he loved
playing outside with the boys! He
really loves being with all of us, and
I feel like he is a bit sad when one of
us is gone for a few hours or a day.  
Thank you again for such a great
dog!  He makes us smile and laugh
all the time.  Such a fun personality.
Dina, Oregon

I can truly not imagine my life
without my sweet Pinot. She is so
playful and loving! We get so many
compliments everywhere we go.
Thank you, Debbie, for my
wonderful little girl. ��

Hey Debbie....
Today is Finley's (Darla x Spanky)
birthday.  I can't believe he is three
years old.  He is a wonderful dog!  
He visits children in the local

both the Rally and Obedience
Novice titles.  We think the world of
him. Thanks again for breeding
such amazing dogs!

We hope to purchase another Australian
Labradoodle from you.  We would really,
really like it if Harvey were the father.  
Simon has all of the tendencies of a
therapy dog and we presume it is due to
his father ~ although you will know best!  
Can you give us some feedback on our
thoughts?  Thank you for all you do in the
name of Labradoodle love!  We have met
many labradoodles in Portland and none
are as good and well-behaved as our

Hi Debbie,

Just wanted to send you a photo of
our little family. Thank you for our
fur child - she has stolen our
hearts! We are absolutely in love
with Birdie, and have all bonded
really well. She is a very smart
puppy and already runs to the door
when she has to potty! We couldn't
be more impressed with her.
Thank you and take care!

I have been thinking of you since BJ’
s birthday in May.  I wanted to let
you know that the puppy ‘Caramel
Boy’ that you allowed us to bring
into our home has been pure joy!  
So very loving, gentle, well
mannered and easy to train.  He
goes with us everywhere, loves
every dog, child and person we run
into and makes us laugh multiple
times a day with his silly antics.  
BJ still loves cardboard boxes and
maintains quite a collection of them
in the garage that he rummages
through every day.  He also loves
water, showers, long walks, treats
and play days at the Canine County
Club where we take him to romp
and socialize.  
We adore him!!!  Thank you Debbie.

Hi Debbie,
I’m sorry I haven’t been keeping in
touch. The beautiful puppy you sent
us is still doing well. We named him
Louka.  His picture is attached. The
puppy pictures were taken the
evening he arrived in Houston.  He
is the most loving, good natured
and healthy dog one could ask for. I
can’t thank you enough.  Everyone
he meets loves him.  We had a
trainer work with us to teach him
some basic commands and to teach
the children how to work with dogs.
Many thanks!!
Lara Savas
Mr Macaroni is doing amazing!!
My name is Jeremy. We purchased a
male from you in November. I have got to
tell you! We are so impressed with our fur
baby! I just got back from the vet and she
couldn't not stop praising him on his
maturity level at such a young age! She
also was really impressed in his attention
span. We really couldn't have asked for a
better dog. The relationship that Lincoln
has build with our 5 year old son is just
amazing. They truly are best friends! They
sleep together, they play outside together
with the neighborhood kids. Lincoln WILL
NOT leave my sons side when they're
outside. Lincoln's favorite times of the day
are school Pickup/drop off,  after dinner
walks and evening cuddle time. I want to
thank you for providing us with the
missing member of our family! We
couldn't have gotten a better dog!


Fred graduated from his puppy
class a few weeks ago, with flying
colors.  He is the perfect puppy, and
the light of my life.

He prefers to be on the water
instead of in the water. He goes to
the golf course daily and runs 36
holes before 7 am. Bill says he is
going to let Hershey drive the cart
and Bill run behind because the dog
is in such great shape. There is not
a goose to be found on the course.
When he's not on the course, he
hangs with Bill in the office.
Everyone knows this dog, he's the
Lake Wildwood Association mascot!

Hi Debbie,

Just wanted to check in and let you
know that Winnie (Ms. Pink) is
amazing!  We are loving her to
death.  She's so smart and such a
great personality.  She can already
sit and is starting to use her bells to
go outside.  Our big dog loves her.  
Thanks for making our puppy
buying experience a great one!

Hi Debbie-
Well Jax is almost a year now and
just as you predicted he is 23# and
16 1/2 inches tall. He has become a
fabulous dog! He is very smart and
has a great fun personality. He fits
right in with our family! He loves to
play catch and chew his toys! He
also is very fond of the snow! He
had just began to sleep out of his
kennel and he spends equal time in
each of the girls rooms then ends
up in ours. He likes to keep tabs on
all of us. He is not a barking dog
only when someone is at the door.
He does great with the bells to go
out! Thank you so much for the
quality dog we have. We are truly
grateful! Thank you again!

Debbie, just wanted to say hi and send
you a picture of our sweet baby girl. Don't
know if you remember but I was the lady
who wanted a sweet puppy to be with me
while I went through chemotherapy for
breast cancer. I am through all my
treatment and done and happy and
healthy! Mayreau has been an absolute
dream from day one. She turned 1 in
August and our family has never loved a
dog this much.  She follows me
everywhere, has the best personality and
is such a good girl. Everyone who meets
her instantly falls in love :-)
So much so, that my husband, now wants
one of his own! Thank you so much.
Mayreau is just an incredible new addition
to our family and we can't imagine it
without her.

Hi Deb!

I just wanted to give you an update on
Murphy. He is doing so great! You're right-
he's such a lover and has so much
personality that is coming to the surface!
He and my parents doodle, Ollie, are
getting along beautifully. We have our first
class with the trainer today but he's
already such a smart pup. I can't thank
you enough for running such a wonderful
breeding program and being so helpful. I
can't imagine a more comforting

Hi Debbie!
We wanted to thank you for such a sweet
puppy. Our Cocoa is super smart and
after only a few days had begun ringing
his bells by himself to let us know he has
to potty outside!
Crate training is going well as we have it
in our room at night (makes it easier to
take him potty in the night) and no
accidents at night so far :) when it's time
for bed he walks right in and lays down.
It's so sweet as he lays his head down on
the bear you sent home with him.When
my husband leaves for work in the
morning, Cocoa likes to snooze on his
pillows. He sticks pretty close to me
during the day and lays right next to my
feet when I am in the kitchen. He really
loves his people and is happiest when
close to us.He is our sweet boy and our
family is now complete. We can't imagine
life without him!  All the Best, Scott, Grace,
Hannah, Victoria, Rachel and Cocoa
Hi Debbie,

Just thought I'd finally take a breather and
email you about Finn's progress!  
Summer has been a whirlwind so far,
Finn just fits in the family so well.  He's in
week 2 of training classes and learning
like a pro!  I can hardly get enough of his
coat, I'm considering training him to be a
therapy dog, you can't help but take a
deep breath and relax when you pet him!  
He's getting his first grooming on
Thursday, he hasn't had anything since
we got him from you 7 weeks ago.  I'll
probably do a tidy but undecided on if we'll
cut some of his super fluffy self!  He's
gone to softball and soccer tournaments,
camping and on his first hike yesterday,
he's a HUGE hit everywhere we go,
people love him. Thanks Debbie, hope
summer is treating you well,

Elise Callies
Just wanted to let you know how
much we love Phish!  He is such a
sweet puppy and minds so well! He
absolutely adores Claire and they

she is at soccer and loves meeting
our patients.

Hi Debbie -
I wanted to share a recent photo of
Tuck. He's already grown so much!
He has been doing so well and we
love having him as a part of our
family. He is just a love and super
smart. He already knows sit, down,
and go potty.  We had some friends
over this weekend and they are
very interested in getting a
Labradoodle after spending time
with him. I passed along your info
and told them how wonderful you
are to work with. I'll be sure to send
more updates in the near future.

Take care,Cassie Montagne, WA.
Just wanted to let you know I put the
contract in the mail today-sorry I
forgot about it. I guess we were too
busy loving on this guy! Ollie is
doing great! Growing, exploring,
and changing everyday! He is a
perfect fit in our family. He starts
obedience school later this month
but already knows a few things.  
Thanks again! (Lily x Harvey pup)

Hi Debbie,
Two and a half years ago my good friend
Jenny Roth was the winning bidder at our
school’s auction (St. Louise School in
Bellevue, WA). The prize was a
labradoodle puppy she named Champ. At
the time I thought she was crazy bidding
on a dog. But when she got that cute little
guy we loved him so much we decided
we wanted to have one for out family. He
had such a good demeanor and was so
good with her boys. My kids had always
wanted a dog so I researched many
breeds and ultimately bought little Molly
from you a year and a half ago. Both Molly
and Champ are Lily and Harvey’s pups.
Molly has been such a sweet addition to
our family!
About nine months ago another family
from our school was looking into getting a
dog and often saw Molly with us. They
came over to our house with their kids to
see what she was really like. They fell in
love and ended up buying Ozzie from you
last year. The dad just told me on Sunday
Ozzie is the best dog they have ever had
and thanked me for helping steer them in
the right direction.
All of these great stories would have
never happened if it was not for your
generosity several years ago. You helped
raise money for our school, but also
brought more awareness to your
business which brings such beautiful
dogs to good families.
I know there are a lot of families that
would love to have such a sweet addition.
Sincerely, Renee
"Carson"Hello to all. 6 months old and
approximately 35 lbs. We are in the throes
of adolescent behavior.  He continues to
be loads of fun and is doing well in
obedience school. He  graduates
tomorrow night. He excels in agility and
did pretty well in his first rally attempt last
week. We spend 1-1/2 to 2 hours per
morning walking, playing, training and
meeting other people and dogs. We
usually chase a Frisbee and today he
figured out on his own that he could sit or
lay down until it landed than go chasing
after it wildly. I was going to start a
program to begin training for field
retrieves soon so I guess he read my
mind. Many have commented on how
"cute. adorable, handsome etc." he is. I
have given all that are interested both
your  names so hopefully more of your
great  puppies will find homes in the
We usually take an easy half hour walk in
the evening and he sleeps until 5:30 or
6:00 when I get up. In short life is good
with Carson. He is loads of fun and he
challenges me daily to keep his physical
and mental workouts interesting. I think
we will start the Canine Good Citizen
program next. We are looking forward to
the therapy training in the future, We will
continue to update you as we proceed
with his and our education.WE LOVE
Mark, Deborah and Carson
Hello Debbie....
Not the best photo but one that actually
shows some of her face.
Bella is growing fast, healthy, and oh how
she loves to nip. She's a busy little B
times 100. :) She is the absolute
sweetest whom we adore. I've given your
website out, everyone we run into loves
her so much. I took her into Nordstrom for
a quick item pick up (which by the way,
something I can't imagine that I would do,
taking a dog into the store let alone
Nordy's..but did) and I was in the store
seriously like an additional 45 mins from
ppl coming up to pet and ask about Bella.
Bella was a rock star... She got so much
attention. Bella went to the groomers and
everyone at the groomers were in love
with her. Ok... Enough of my bragging
about the darling pup you created. But
wanted to share how well she's doing
and how everyone loves her. :)
Happy holidays to you and your family.

Hi Debbie,

Here is Archie at 5 months!
We are having a great time with
him.  He loves going to our
daughter's soccer games, playing
with our neighbor's dogs, and
cuddling in our lap at night.  :-)  

Hope you are doing well!

Kent, Amy, and Riley Smith
Rosie is doing great!  She was so
nervous and shy at first, but she's done
so well - we go out for walks at least twice
a day, so she's meeting all of the
neighborhood dogs and getting used to
living in an urban environment.  We've
enrolled in her puppy class - she has a
socialization class today, and her first
training class is tomorrow.

She is a total love.  She is sweet and
cuddly - a people dog, she's become very
attached to each member of the family.  
She is particularly wonderful with children
- she's so sweet and gentle with
Mackenzie, we just love her so much!

FYI I have been approached by three
different people asking where we got
Rosie, and asking whether there are
puppies available.  One woman's name
is Tracy - her daughter attends my
daughter's school.  Another woman has
two older poodles and really wants a
puppy.  And another woman said her
sister's dog just passed away and she's
looking for a puppy.  So hopefully they will
all get in touch with you soon!
Best regards, Eric, Christine and

Thought you would enjoy some pictures of Simon who is
now 15 months, He is such a joy, so smart. He loved to
watch TV and knows some dog commercials by the
sounds. He goes everywhere with me riding shotgun and
all comment on how great he looks. Thank you for picking
us such a jewel.

Kay M.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to give you an
update on Rosie. In short, we LOVE her and she is a
GREAT dog!   
She’s up to about 21 pounds now and is several inches
taller than Zuma (we got together for puppy play a couple
of weeks ago) but the same weight. She’s healthy and
happy, though she did go through a rock-eating issue
where she ate several rocks and even vomited up a fairly
large one. This was right after we got her home and we
had to do X-rays…her rock interest seems to have
dissipated.  She is very loving and doles her affection out
to all of our family members equally. As you can imagine,
our daughter, Shae, is over the moon for her. She still
carries Rosie around like a baby. Pretty cute.
Rosie is smart and a fast learner of
the basic commands and even
some tricks that Shae is teaching
her like shake and dance!
She almost never barks, is super
excited and friendly when she meets
other dogs and loves to meet new
people. Everyone who meets her
loves her, including the groomer,
dog walkers, people on the street,
etc. She’s just a joy to have around.
She now sleeps in our room out of
her crate in her own dog bed and
does great. During the day she
sleeps a lot, but goes on walks with
me when I’m working from home or
the dog walker comes and takes her
either solo or with a group of other
dogs for a long walk and puppy
Thank you so much! We are just
thrilled with Rosie!

She loves our boys and hugs line a
teddy bear! She's really all white
for a slight tint on the end of her
ears! Showstopper!!!

This is just following Sophia's first
grooming today.  She's just the most
amazing puppy and we think she's
beautiful (and gifted).  We couldn't
happier with her.

In honor of dog day I thought I'd
send you a hello and update on
Olympia. She is doing great! She's
still just a little thing at about 11 lbs
right now. We are both loving our
life together. Here are some pics of
my cutie. (Darla baby)

Hi Debbie,
Here's a few pics of Milo with the
kids. He is adjusting well and has
started forming some habits (he
loves relaxing under the coffee
table). He has an amazing
personality - he is really patient with
the kids, playful yet very calm (and
calming!). He seems to especially
enjoy being around kids. The
neighborhood kids came to greet
him and he seemed at his happiest.
We love him - thanks you for this
amazing little guy!

Haris and I are in love with Wexley
and we'd love to add another pup to
the mix.
Ideally we're thinking of adopting
another labradoodle around
Christmas into
next spring. . We're both looking for
a brown girl. We were so impressed
your process last time, that we
couldn't imagine going through
anyone else but
you. Thank you for a wondering pup
and any information! I hope you
have a great

Hi Debbie,
Just wanted to say thank you
again!!  Maisy is a doll.  She is so
loving and full of personality. I have
attached a few pictures.

Just wanted to say Hi and thank you
again for giving us such a nice
puppy. He filled our house with even
more love. I am always being asked
where we got him from :) He is
completely housebroken now and I
have run out of tricks to teach him.
He can do all of them only with
gestures, or with words and in two
languages. He sometimes outsmarts
me..unbelievable. I attached a
recent picture of him before we
gave him his summer haircut. He
says hi ;) Thank you again and
hope to see you soon.
Hey Debbie, just wanted to say
again how thankful we are for our
Hugo!!! Every morning he runs
downstairs to get the boys up and
they cuddle. We love him so much
and can't imagine life without him!!!
What a wonderful dog you have
bred. Best temperament, his
groomer is amazed at how perfect
his coat is. Everyone that meets
him, wants him!

We love Georgia so much! Today
was our 1st hike with her. She did
great and seemed to really love it!
Thanks for growing us such a
wonderful puppy! We get
compliments every where we go.
Happy Mother's Day to you :)

The Riley's
"Georgia" is settling in well. She
already noses the bells to potty
outside and she is growing so fast!
She starts puppy classes on
Monday! We love her so much! I
think she loves us too!

Julie & Family in Corvallis, Oregon
Well things are going great for our
first week!  Lucky and Owen are
becoming the best of friends.
...Lucky has slept in his crate all the
way through the night the last three
nights with absolutely no noise and
he is using his bells at the door
about 80% of the time, with the
other times us proactively just
taking him out because it feels like it
is time...

Thank you again for such a
wonderful addition to our family!

Hi Debbie,
Ceto is adjusting well to her new
home. . Ceto is very brave around
the chickens and wants to play with
them. The chickens do not feel the
some. :)
Ceto rings the bells to go out, is
starting to recognize her name, and
gets 'come', 'sit', and 'touch' most of
the time. Really awesome for only
being with us for 3 days! We'll let
you know how puppy training class
goes next weekend.

My husband and I got our wonderful little
Scarlett from you this past September
(Lilly and Harvey litter July 2014).  She is
now seven months old and quite the
energetic cutie! Here are a few pics of the
girl’s first trip to the park at Leaburg and to
the Heceta light house beach last
weekend.  And her new favorite spot is on
my lap! Even tho she is just a little bit big
for that.  I love it tho. Smile  I saw that you
had more Lily and Harvey babies.  I am
sure they are fabulous and tons of fun.  
Scarlett loves the water and rocks!   We
walk twice a day and she has become a
favorite of my neighbor, who has
Parkinson’s.  It’s just great for all of us to
get out and walk together.  We also get
lots of compliments on how amazingly
cute and soft Scarlett is.  We will  keep in
touch.  Thanks again.

Hi Debbie!

Thank you so much for nominating Spanky and
Darla for the Kuranda Dog Bed contest. And
thank you for naming Dogs for the Deaf as the
recipients of the five free dog beds, if you won.
While we lost by a mere 194 votes, it was fun
way to interact with so many people on
Facebook and Twitter who voted 3,859 times!!
For our second-place win, Kuranda is going to
send us some beds anyway!!  In addition, a
wonderful woman in Georgia saw your efforts,
and purchased a large Kuranda bed for us that
will arrive next week!
What an exciting outcome! We can’t thank you
enough for thinking of us and we are humbled
by all the support!
Warm regards,
Hugo is doing fantastic!!
He is already romping around the
house playing with boys! He's given
me some sweet cuddles! He is more
beautiful than I imagine and larger
too! Perfect! We are all enjoying
having a dog in the house again!!!

Hi Debbie.

I am sending pictures of Max at 5

Hi Debbie,

Ozzy's at 5 months now and he is
doing great!  He is very smart and
learns things quickly.  Very friendly
dog, too.  He loves everyone he
meets, and everyone he meets
loves him.  

Thank you for choosing such an
awesome dog for our family.

Hey Debbie...

Thought I would share a couple of
pictures of Finley's first
paddleboard adventure.  He did
great!  I hope all is well with you.  I
see you have some great litters
lined up for 2015.....can't wait to see
the pups....I know they will be

Take Care...

Hello this is Fred & Andrea

We are so happy to have Ducati
We brings lots of Energy and
playfulness to our home he's 12
weeks now and growing fast about
10 lbs ..He can sit stay shake hands
Fetch balls he's a bit scared of the
world but I feel he will outgrow that I
take him to as many places as
possible and introduce him to
people as a positive thing.

Again thanks!
Ferd and Anfrea, Seattle
Dear Debbie

Finley and I want to wish you good
health and happiness for 2015.  He
is doing great....very attentive,
eager to please, and a joy to be
with.  He excels in puppy class and
loves everybody and every dog.  
Thanks so much for matching me
with him...I couldn't be more pleased.

Mary Ann, Florida.
(these  wonderful folks just lost their
Dobie to cancer, Kassie, and are buying
another doodle from us....sorry for you
loss Paul and Roger...hugs~DY
Paul and Kassie and Tyler at the
Prospect Park wall just steps from
our Brooklyn home. Taken last
Spring. My cousin Mary and I are on
the other side of the wall taking the
picture. Fearless Tyler about to
leap over to join us. Park is 500
plus acres and dogs are allowed off
leash before 9 A M. Tyler weighed
in at 33 lbs today . He is incredibly
intelligent and outgoing. The best
disposition ever. He is a bit lost
without Kassie. She was his
teacher, his protector and his
surrogate mother. She adored him
and vis versa. They often bathed
each other from head to toe. Please
put us at the head of the list for a
pup and Tyler and Paul and I will be
forever grateful. Best. Roger.
Hi Debbie!
Hope you're well!  Just wanted to
write you with an update on our
puppy Chewie. One of my
co-workers (Gabrial ) actually got
one of Chewie's half-sisters this
past weekend, and just wanted to
share with you this picture of them
together with me! The two of them
are a hit in our office right now, and
people can't stop raving about how
great a job you've done as a
breeder :) Chewie is adorable, and
we are incredibly in love.  We can't
believe how quickly she's grown --
she's almost 15 pounds now!

Thanks for everything!
Hi Debbie,

Aly wasn't crazy about her bath, but
loves naps!  :-). We love her so
