Barb….we love our Emmie! (Cabela/Champ) Once again you picked the perfect golden puppy!  She is calm and loving and spunks up just like you said she would.  We started puppy kindergarten last week and she is one of the calmest ones in class.  Thank you so much for all the socialization you did..we have continued taking her as many places as possible.

image001Hello Barb!  I keep seeing all the wonderful photos of your past litters and just had to share a picture of our 7 month old Charlie, a Madison/Champ puppy.  He is everything we asked for: spirited, funny, lovable and oh so smart.  He chases the ducks around the golf course and he loves running through the sand traps! We are learning to heel, which is a challenge, as the world is such an interesting place and distractions abound.  Charlie is 60 pounds and counting!  He eagerly takes his NutraVet supplement every morning.  We are waiting until he is one year old to neuter.  Thank you for making such a great choice to add to our family.

IMG_0349 IMG_2280We are so in love with her, as is Duke!  She follows him everywhere!  Waits
for him and whines until he comes back from his morning walk!  Amazing!
Barb, you are the best!  I admire you more than you can imagine for the
things you do.
Thank you, Russ and your entire family for making us a family.
Much love and respect
Susan and Jim

Swimming

2016 June 3
by Barb

When you introduce your puppy to the water for the first time we recommend you allow him to splash around on shore and get comfortable. Then take him out in the water to about your waist and support his head and lift the tail to make him buoyant and let go so he can swim to shore. Let him splash a bit around shore and take him out again. These good experiences with water should make him a lifelong swimmer! The puppy in this photo is Cooper, a 2 month old Hazel/Champ puppy.

Amy’s 21st Birthday! Plus puppy and tick updates

2016 April 8

We just celebrated Amy’s birthday. It has been a tough year battling Lyme
disease. Thankfully Amy’s health has dramatically improved. She was on IV
antibiotics and hydration for 6 1/2 months. She was affected neurologically.
There were so many times when I wondered if I would ever see the “real Amy”
again. I am happy to say, she is back!! She is holding puppies and back to
her usual self. What a long year it was. It is heart wrenching to watch your
child suffer. We are rejoicing today that Amy is doing so well. We continue
to fight Lyme disease and strive to learn more about how to help Amy stay
healthy. I have become so much more aware of ticks and tick season. I used a
product last year called Bravecto. It is an oral medication given once every
3 months. I recommend you start your dog on it now as one of our clients
reported finding a tick on their puppy already. Don’t forget to treat for
heart worm as well.

I also wanted to post an update on our puppy availability. Unfortunately we
did not have as many puppies born this spring as I had planned. It is a very
difficult part of my job, relying on mother nature. I never know how many
puppies I will have, how many males/females. I do all I know to do and the
rest is out of my hands. This requires a tremendous amount of patience and
understanding on the part of my clients. I know how hard it is to wait for
something you want so badly. As of right now we should have puppies born in
the July/August/September time frame and ready for their new homes
September/October/November. Enjoy this Minnesota spring but be aware of
those nasty ticks!

Tucker (Copper/Jackson) is doing well. He weighs 72lbs. He is a good dog and
at his age, he is a diamond in the rough.

He is dearly loved!
