Blackjack's Niko
Paulette, We just went to the vet and as expected Niko is perfect. He weighs a solid 13.7 pounds! We made it
through the first night with no major issues. He liked napping in his crate but was not a fan when the door
closed. Still we all got sleep last night so that is a bonus. He has mastered going up and down the stairs to our
front door and knows to sit in front of the door to go out or in. He will come almost every time and is learning his
name. The outside cats are ignoring him just like the inside ones. Modo stayed with him during his howling last
night so all is well on that front :) He is very interested in the goats and watches them closely. They watch him
just as closely. And...Niko just found our pond! Lots of baths in our future ;) Just wanted to send you an update
and let you know he is doing great! Erika and John
Hey Paulette! She's doing great! Took her to
the vet yesterday and she got a great report
card! I'm going to send you some pictures
soon!!

HI Paulette...He has settled in nice and doing
great. We just love him and will send pictures

GREAT! He has fit right in with our family.  We
have survived the first week and he did
very well in his kennel. He has been very and
is already learning commands. The vet sang
praises about his health and overall
appearance. He has grown and changed so
much in one week. He has gotten longer and
taller and has got a very healthy appetite. I'm
sure he will be a very BIG boy. I can not thank
you enough for allowing us to share the life of
one of your babies! Sincerely,
Josh and Amanda

vet for his second time the other day. All shots
are up to date. He got some meds for some skin
fungus issue but hopefully that will clear it up. He
has adapted to his family well. He is in the
house most of the time and is not having to use
the cage anymore. He is much loved, Thanks for
our handsome boy! David

Hi Ms. Paulette, We just wanted to let you know that
"Roxy" made the trip to Arkansas with no
problems.She is doing quite well getting acclimated to
her new environment. She did good in the crate last
night with a few trips outside during the night/morning.
Reese is having a great time playing chase around
the yard, as Roxy runs to catch him. I told him, he has
a couple weeks before she runs him down. It was very
nice to meet you & Wayne and to see your place.
Thank you for everything and we will keep you
updated. Chip, Cara, Reese and Roxy Brown
Paulette,

Blackjack's Rommel
Hey Paulette, just wanted to let you know that Max is
doing great. We love him very much and we are very
happy and pleased with him. We took him to the vet
today and he is very healthy. Like you said, he has no
worms and his hips are in great shape. I sent you a
picture of him enjoying a bone. Max is very smart, I think
he has almost mastered house training. You said that he
would whine when he has to go and that's exactly what
he does. He didn't whine at all on the way home. He
loves his new home, he is already used to the crate.
When I teach him something, he picks up on it the first
time. I would like to thank you and Wayne for the
wonderful job you have done with Max, and i will be sure
to stay in touch and send pictures as he grows.Thank
You,Wali

awesome. He is doing great too. Thanks Boyd W
He weighs 28.9 lbs. Very smart and we just love him..Thanks
She is doing pretty well on the house training potty issues.
She went to the vet on Thursday for her 12 week
appointment and we were lucky to get her back. They all
want to keep her!!! She currently weighs in at 23 lbs. Both
her ears are standing up and seem to dwarf her head. (At
least for now.) She has driven around with me and my wife
and does pretty good with that. Everyone that sees her just
loves her and we tell them where they can get one just like
her. Roxy loves our big bed and enjoys her time on my side
of the bed when I am gone. She is very hard headed, very
smart and knows how to work it. We just love her to death
and enjoy it all. I will be sending pictures to you this weekend.
I hope all is going well with you and Wayne. We are just
having a great time with Roxy. Best regards, Chip, Cara,
Reese And of Course "Roxy" Brown
Ranger is doing well. He has learned to sit, stay, and lay
down. He is so smart. He loves being outside, we go out in
the mornings for coffee and to watch for squirrels.  He loves
people and we have been getting him around all types of
folks.The vet (she has a German Shepard) was impressed
with how you handled the pup's care. Thanks, Barry

Hey Paulette, Max is doing great and we are very happy
with him. He has had all his shots and is in good health.  I
am taking him to obedience training now and he is doing
good with that. Thank you again for our Maximus. Wali
Paulette We are so pleased with Queen's progress over
the past few weeks.  She is 3 months old now and it is a
real pleasure to have in our family.  She is still the
Tasmanian Devil dog you remember when she plays with
her sister Kai but is getting along much better than
expected with our cats.  Queen and Kai walk together
every morning and play every afternoon.  Niko, the big
guy, is very patient with the 2 pups.  Queen weighs 23.5
pounds and is 15.5 inches at the shoulder - growing by
leaps and bounds.

Kai is 16.25 inches at the shoulders and tipped the scales at
26lbs 14oz. She is a solid girl with great color. The red is
coming up her shoulders and back legs fast! She is doing
great on her training. She walks well on her leash and her off
lead recall is getting more consistent. She and Niko get along
great and are a blast to watch. We are pretty sure Niko loves
her more than us now :).We are enjoying watching them grow
and seeing how different they are, but both are so smart!
Thanks for our pups! John & Erika

his broken toe and weighs about 40 lbs. now.  I'm training him at a gradual pace and he is
responding well.  He's a happy puppy and has become completely attached to me.  He's a
wonderful dog and I'm so glad that I got him.  My kids love him and he loves playing with them.  I've
attached a picture that is about a month old.Hope you have a great Thanksgiving and I'll try not to

Hey Paulette, Ranger is doing great. We do a daily 1
mile walk and he is meeting all kinds of people and
other dogs. The other day a neighbor's dog had
gotten out and we had her in the house until they
could come over. She is old and nearly blind. Ranger
was quite nice, gently herding her around when she
was walking. He is nipping less, but really likes to jump
up on us when he is playing. We love him. Have a
great Christmas.Barry

At 6 months Kai is 60 pounds
shoulders. She is a girl that
makes us smile everyday
and definitely has a mind of
her own. She is so smart and
knows exactly what she is
supposed to do, but likes to
do it in her way :). We
wouldn't change her for
anything! She and Niko are a
bonded pair, and have been
from the day they met. I am
fairly certain that they are
more devoted to each other
than to us :). Thank you so
much for both of our big,
furry kids! Merry Christmas!

Hi Paulette, This is Brodi at 6 Months. I
think Santa might be afraid to leave
present with Brodi under the tree..lol
Merry Christmas!

Hector looks a lot like his mother. He is doing great and growing like a weed. He is extremely full of energy.
He knows how to sit, stay, jump up, kiss, lay down and roll over. Very smart in my opinion. House breaking
was the easiest thing we have ever done. He went in the house 3 times when we brought him home and that
is it. He is either running wild playing with us or sleeping. He does not have much of a middle gear yet. We
have found out that he hates the vacuum cleaner hahaha that makes cleaning the house real eventful with
him barking and jumping at the vacuum. Haha he is already very protective of us. Everything is going great.
We wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!!!

Queen is growing up before our eyes.
We can see her change every day.  
Some days she amazes us with her
excellent behavior and the next day she
is completely mischievous and stubborn.  
Such a teenager!  She continues to test
us but I guess we must all be learning
since we have mostly good days. Queen
weighs 55 lbs and is 22.5 inches at the
shoulder.Thanks Karen

Niko at one yr is 95 lbs & 30". He is the sweetest and most
good natured dog possible. He is protective of our house
and vehicles but is such a gentle soul with the people and
kids that he meets. He is everything that we could have
asked for in a dog. His ball drive is off the charts and he will
do anything to play. He is so smart and a very well
mannered boy and we love him. He and Kai are beyond
bonded and we look forward to breeding them next year!
Thank you for our kids :)

He has been a great addition to our family! He loves our kids,
and that's an understatement. He is very smart and loves to

Queen at 9 months (65 lbs and 24 inches at the
shoulder). She enjoys being outside, playing or
just hanging around. Queen is a wonderful to work
out their relationships with each of the 3 cats
getting regular baths with only a little parental
supervision. Queen is very well adapted to the
in-ground  fence around the perimeter around our
cabin. The rooster and the cats know where the
boundary is just as well so they can tease Queen.

Karen
Kai is 9 months now and 26" at the withers and a
very solid 75 pounds. She is the most easy going,
relaxed, happy girl imaginable. She is
independently minded at times but that keeps life
interesting :). She is beyond bonded with Niko and
keeps him on his toes! We love and adore them
both and cannot remember life without them.

Coco is so great . We just love her. Has a sweet and kind disposition . She is getting big she weighs 65lbs. Just had
her spade . Almost didn't do it because she would have made great puppies. We sent her to be trained because
she would take off and would not stop when kids came through our yard. She has 35 acres to play and 2 cats. We
have considered getting another dog for her to have a companion. Thanks

protection training. Thanks again.Wali
Here is a current picture of Roxy Brown
at 11 months. Sorry for the delay. She
is doing very well and weighs around
75 to 80 lbs. Our 5 year old son and
her really have a good time. She does
bed and stealing the covers at night in
our bed. She is a wonderful dog and
we thank you for that. Hope you and
Wayne are doing well with all the new
puppies. Thanks again!
Chip, Cara, Reese and Roxy Brown
P.S.-The ladies at the bank enjoy
spoiling her with treats all the time
when we go there.
How's it possible that Kai is a year old already?  
She has grown into a calm, alert and confident
girl who can still be a goofball. She is 26 Inches at
the shoulder and 80 pounds.  She is solid without
having any fat or extra weight.  As the weather
has gotten warmer she has developed a love of
the pond and swimming. She and Niko remain as
bonded as ever and they enjoy play time with
Queen. Thanks for our two amazing dogs!
We are so happy to have Queen living with us.  She is
a delight.  At one year she weighs 70 pounds and is 24
inches at the shoulder.  Queen has mellowed and is
well adapted to our lifestyle - and our cats.  Best of all,
she is well integrated into the ‘pack’  (Niko and Kai) and
so has a great time playing with them. The pond is very
popular and Niko and the girls are now swimming fools.  
It has been an exciting year for all of us watching her
grow up. She is a gentle dog with an interest in almost
everything. This summer she is enjoying the pond with
Niko and Kai to keep cool. Everyone has been helping
Queen be part of the family - even the cat! Thank you
so much for our Queen.

Ranger is doing well. As you can see he is willing to
work. When I cut he carries it out of the way. He's
up to 90 lbs. We took him out of town to see my
mom. She walks w/ a cane, and he would escort her
to make sure she got around ok. She loved it and
enjoyed his antics. Tomorrow he graduates from
Amy Lear's PAL puppy training. He has picked up
on all the commands, but is more interested in
socializing with the other pups...lol
Thanks!
Ms. Paulette,
Here is a current picture of Roxy at 1

health and has her own unique
personality. She weighs in around 75

house. Hope you and Wayne are
doing well along with all your family
members outside. Thank you for such

Emma came to us when she was a year old.  She has adapted well to her new home with Queen and is learning to live
peacefully with our 3 cats.  Emma really wants to ‘shepherd’ the cats around the house much to their confusion.  She has
found that 'herding cats’ is a real challenge! Emma is well mannered, and is a great addition to our household.   It is great
to see the strong bond between her and Queen, her half sister.  They play hard together and keep each other well
exercised!  Emma has easily joined the play with my daughter's German Shepherds, Niko and Kai, so now we have 4
German Shepherd play group.  The foursome is quite a sight. Thank you for Emma.  She is beautiful and a delight.
2 Years Old

Queen brings excitement with her mind
of her own, but she is maturing into a
(almost) well mannered dog. It has
been great to have Emma to run with
her for the past year to keep both
dogs exercised. Off-lead runs in the
park have been a delight for us all.
Queen remains very red - it is
interesting to see how her coloring has
changed over the past 2 years.

Hi Paulette We want to tell you how happy we are with Queen and Emma. They
both have their third birthday this week and that is always a good excuse to reflect
on the changes over the past year. Both girls are much more grown up; even
Queen is much more relaxed. They occasionally are still crazy dogs with a good
game of 'can't catch me' but more often we spend time watching and exploring.  
Most significantly, both dogs are getting very good at their new work - pulling.  
They will work together to pull almost anything now - garden carts to sulkies and
scooters.  The exercise is great for them and they have lots of fun. Our family - 2
dogs, 2 cats and 2 people fits so well together!  We thank you so much for our
beautiful girls.
