I wanted to check in and let you know Applesauce continues to be a complete joy. She’s been growing steadily and is quickly departing puppy-dome! She’s now lean and lanky, and learning how to climb onto the furniture We got through potty training within only a few weeks of bringing her home, which was awesome, especially after hearing how long it sometimes takes other dogs.
Her favorite things:
-Walks around the neighborhood
-Visiting anyone and everyone who will give her a little attention (she’s especially fond of kids)
-Socks and underwear (she’ll steal them quietly if you leave them in her reach)
-Digging in the dirt, evidenced by the attached photo
Hope you are doing well, and thanks again for prepping Applesauce to be the best little family member we could ask for.
-Sabrina and Matt
Hi Barb- It has been a while since we’ve given you a Hilde (Ivy/Captain)update. She is doing great. We just got back from a trip to Lake Vermillion with her. We have a joke that she is keeping a scrapbook of all the lakes she has gone swimming in. She is such a well behaved dog. It is so nice to have a buddy that can ride in the car, go on trips, go on hikes, stay in cabins, meet lots of people and handle it all with grace and beautiful manners. Our little dog is a gem! On Oct. 15 Hilde will start therapy dog classes. It was never something I had planned to do, it just fit her personality. She loves training and learning. In the winter months it gives her brain something to do. I hope you and your family are doing well! -Ray and Amy

Good Morning Barb, I just wanted to let you know how well Rudy (Cabela/Jackson) is doing at his new home. He slept through the night last night in the crate from 9:30 to 4:30 and had no accidents all day yesterday. I was shocked this morning when he went to the door to go outside and went immediately when he hit the grass. Wow!! Thank you for all the renewed advice on training it’s been a few years. We know we are at the beginning of a year or two of training but we’ve gotten off to an amazing start and after three days Rudy instantly has a piece of all of our hearts. We still miss our Ripley (Banner/Copper) and realize how lucky we were to have his kind gentle spirit in our home for close to 13 years. Rudy is a breath of new life and has brought smiles to all of our faces again; I cannot Thank You enough for allowing us to adopt another Rolling Oak’s Golden!! I Thank you, Kim, Jack, Lucas, Nick & Rudy
Hi Barb – Lily (Delilah/Lochnivar) loves the water. Thanks for such a wonderful dog. I ordered the 40lb bag every 8 weeks of Life’s Abundance. She should like it. I know I have told you this many times – but I just have to tell you again how happy I am with Lily. She is so sweet and good. With all 3 boy’s out of the house now Lily and I are best friends. My husband is gone a lot so it is so nice to have her around. We are still walking about one hour a day. It takes longer because everyone we pass wants to talk to her. My mother is 92 years old and Lily will go with me to visit her and Lily is so calm around the older people. Everyone just loves her. Thank you so much for such a wonderful dog. Bonnie
Hello Barb, It’s been a long time since I’ve communicated with you. I hope you and your family are doing well. I visited your website this evening and was feeling a bit nostalgic seeing all the new puppies. I thought I’d send you a note to share a couple photos of Madison ( now 13 1/2 years old) from yesterday’s morning walk. Her salt and pepper coat looks as frosted as the frosty morning grass. She is still healthy and strong with just a few normal old lady bumps. Thank you for breeding her with such great genetics. I feel so fortunate to have her with us for this many years and I pray for a few more. Take care, Catherine
