Hi Don,

Just want to let you know that we are doing well. Like all puppies, ben likes to chew and bite on anything he gets a hold of. He was constantly chewing on the drawer knobs in the kichen until today. I put tabasco sauce on them . All it took was one lick and as of now he has stayed clear of them and a few other things that he has been nipping at.

Right now he is only up once during the night for a pee break. (Settles around 8:30 - 9:00 and wakes up around 6:30.) The kids just love him. They enjoy running around with him outside. I took him to work and everybody made a big fuss over him. Overall i think ben is adjusting very well. He knows where his water dish is, and when you say "kennel" he goes right to it. We just love him so much. Ben has completed our family. We can't thank you enough.

I'm sure as the weeks go on and when training starts (which will be probably be late next week) i will have lots of questions for you. In the meantime take care.

Happy New Year!

I just received your e-mails, went on the site and WOW! I cannot wait for Pro to see it. I am up earlier, getting ready for church. We are busy busy. Seems like one day just melts into another.

Kayla is amazing. She has calmed down so much. She just has a great routine with the other pups here. I cannot get over how much she looks like Roo. I don't think she knows her own strenth sometimes. The muscles POP off of her!

She is as sweet as anything. Her eyes are the most expressive eyes I have ever seen on a dog! I just love her so much. She does think that she is lap dog size though and is so funny when she tries to squeeze up onto a tiny spot.

I am hoping that Pro and I can travel some now that we are married. His son Joe is leaving for school on Friday. We have a two day drive to St Louis, MO! So a trip to NS may seem like a hop skip jump!

Have not seen Debra for awhile, hope to get together with her soon!

Hope that you are well!
