My dog team


Here's a few pictures for you to look at. There's a couple attached of me
and my dog team. One with my daughter and her favourite of the team "Snowball". She always likes to take her out for a run. She won the kids dog sled race with her again this year. There's also one of me, Vyann and Taylor.

Breton Update


Just wanted to let you know that we had Breton to the vet today and all is great. The vet commented on his health and said that he is in great shape. We are about to begin a little more intense training, but up to this point he picks things up pretty fast (good and bad). We have many children in the neighbourhood and he goes nuts when he sees them. Our neighbour has a daughter who comes over and takes Breton for walks, he is amazingly well behaved with her.

I have attached a couple of recent photos.

week. As good as gold.

Jasper CD, High in Class

Hello Don,

How are you? Today was a very exciting day for us. We
accompilished our first goal in obedience today at the Dartmouth Kennel
Club trials. With a score of 186 (high in class) Doindogs Jasper
received her title of companion dog (CD), both Angela and myself are
very proud of our 16 month old yellow lab. To make things even better,
After the trial was over the judge gave me a few pointers adding that
she thought that Jasper had a tonne of potential. I have included a few
pictures of the day for you and Pierrette. There is no doubt in my mind
that without your obedience classes and your personal help that this
would have ever been accomplished. Once again THANK YOU for all of your
support and for such an incredible dog.

Shawn and Angie

P.S. when can we start CDX ?

Incredible dog

Don and Pierette,

Marilyn and I wish to thank you for providing us with an incredible dog. 'Raven' has proved to be (in just six days) the smartest and most personable little dog we ever had. You are to be commended for this. 'Raven' always goes outdoors to do his business and only soiled his cage on nights one and two and that was because I was not up to speed on the schedule. Once I clued into the timing of nightly outings, all was dry. He goes every three hours at night: 12pm, 3am and 6am (at which time he eats and accompanies Marilyn and I on a two hour walk (some of which he is carried).

He is quiet when in his cage and loves everyone. Incidentally, our Himalayan cat 'Zoe' is slowly accepting him, not that 'Raven' notices. They will be great friends once he grows up a bit. He is happy, healthy and huggable!

thanks again,

Brian Gallivan

Hi Don & Pierrett,

just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how Daytona is making out....she's such a good girl! and smart! wow she already is learning simple commands such as come and sit, she also has learned what No means too!'s tried a few shoes) she's going to love the water and has been in it already! (I'll attatch pictures) She's very cuddly and has fit right in with the other animals at our place, she also takes no slack from Spirit(our jack russell) when Spirit growls at her she comes right back at her with a saucy little bark! Spirit doesn't know what to do with her!'s priceless!

She has begun crate training, she doesn't sleep in it at night however when we go out she goes in it for safety, she's doing real good! only cries a bit when we put her in and then settles right down. She already goes to the door and cries to go out and do her "business" can't believe this but with everybodies eyes on her like they have been, she's rarely had the chance to have an acident on the floor! She loves Santana(our older lab) I think she reminds her of her mom.

she cuddles into her alot and just sleeps (Santana doesn't do a thing!) gotta love the Labs layed back personality! Daytona is also very good in the truck, she just sleeps.Well I guess I covered everything, so i must go for now, take care and we'll talk again soon!

Thankyou for such a beautiful pup!

Shannon & Daytona!

Max is home safe and sound

Hi Don,

We just wanted to let you know that Max is home safe and sound. He went outside to do his business twice and we praised him. No Indoor accidents yet, Our older dog just sniffed him and walked away, then fell asleep beside him. Jay and I wanted to thank you for allowing us to have one of your beautiful dogs. We will keep you updated and send pictures often. I have attached a couple of photos.

He will be loved very much.
