Hi Barb – Just wanted to share a few pictures of our beautiful dog, Kenai (Emmy/Champ) She has grown into a really nice family member. Pam and I moved up to the North Shore this past fall (about 10 miles north of Duluth). Kenai has a huge fenced in back yard, but more importantly to her she has Lake Superior. She loves to swim. The picture of her in the water was taken on Feb 4 when it was only 5 degrees out. I couldn’t believe she jumped in and then continued to play for several minutes. Once she came out she rolled in the snow and never showed any signs of being cold! She is a great running partner for me since she turned one – and is routinely running 3-4 miles at time. She is very petite, weighing only 49-50 pounds, which is fine with us. She receives innumerable comments about how beautiful she is. We couldn’t be happier with her temperament – she plays hard when we’re outside, but is extremely well behaved and gentle in the house. She still makes us laugh daily. Hope that all is well with you and your family.
Well, our Miss Berthe turned six yesterday. Bravo, Emmy and Captain, for making such a gorgeous girl. I meant to take pictures only of her but Archie (Hazel/Champ) just couldn’t help himself and just had to be the center of attention. Look how he’s grown! I’m sure you can tell who is who, though. I’m off to class with Archie now — his second step of obedience classes. In the meantime, Berthe simply sighs. Here they are for your enjoyment. — The solo shot is Archie, and I couldn’t resist sending you the boys in my house taking their afternoon nap. They are both gorgeous. Best, Diana & Chuck
Hello Barb, Hogan is doing extremely well. In addition to receiving his final series of puppy shots on Monday, his overall health is excellent! His heart murmur is now completely dissolved, as you predicted that it would! Hogan began puppy obedient training last night, which is always a fun interaction with a variety of puppies! His favorite trick is to fetch the newspaper every morning and carry it to the backyard where we are still working on the handoff:) Thank you once again for raising the best Goldens on planet earth! Cheers! -Scott
Barb, Our great Molly, who is a Rolling Oaks Golden turns 12 today, my husband put together these fun pictures together. Molly is still very active and is a joy to have in our family. The last picture was taken of Molly and Bella overlooking Lake Superior after New Years. Hope you and your family are well.
We had about 4-5″ of snow overnight, and Koya always has so much fun bouncing thru the snow, checking out any fresh tracks made by those elusive bunny rabbits. I just wanted to send a photo taken this morning of a very happy girl.
Hi Barb, I just wanted to share a couple recent photos of Koya (Hazel/Finny) who is almost 1.5 years now. I swear she is the happiest dog in the world. She motivates me to get out of bed and take her for a walk in the morning, no matter the weather, as she is always super excited to check-up on all the familiar smells. And she can’t stop smiling when she’s at a dog park, as everyone must be there just to see her. She still has a lot of puppy in her, and goes nuts when she hears her favorite words “bunny rabbit”. I don’t think it’s possible for her to be happier. Thanks for such a healthy and happy pup.
Hello Barb, It is almost unbelievable that is was three years ago that we made the seven hour trip to pick up our puppy! Blaze (Jasmine/Griffin) is doing great! We are in advanced Senior Handling classes and have completed a level one agility class. All this work prepared us to take the Therapy Dogs Inc. tests over October and November last year. Now it is official! Blaze and I are a registered dog therapy team! My family loves our sweet “boy”! I’m so happy to finally get to tell you our good news!
Barb, I hope this finds you and the rest of the Rolling Oaks family doing well. I just wanted to give you a quick update on Lady (Hazel/Finny). She is doing amazing and I can not thank you enough for her. She is so mellow, very affectionate, and very smart. She loves to meet new people and suck up love from anyone who will give it out. I also receive tons of comments about how beautiful she is. Thank you so much for all the time and love you and the rest of the Rolling Oaks family put into your dogs and puppies. -Emily
Hi Barb, Thought you should know… …Hogan had his second Vet appointment yesterday. His heart murmur is now a one, and Dr. Amy thinks it will be normal by next month! Great news! Hogan is just awesome! I didn’t think he could get any cuter, but I was wrong! He is a precious gift from God! Cheers! Scott
