We thought we would send you a quick update on our little puppy... He is almost 13 weeks old and is just a sweetie. He loves playing, running and tug of war. He is already going to the door to let us know he needs to go to the bathroom. He comes when called, sits for a treat.. and loves being cuddled and giving puppy kisses..
We can't say thank you enough for this addition to the family. I will be doing obedience training soon and hope to share him as a therapy dog with others to uplift their days as well.
We are very pleased and will highly recommend your kennel to all our friends...all the best to you and yours,

Hope this finds you and yours well.
This is to tell you that S'mores is such a sweet and loving dog, and that I am so very happy with him, and love him immensely. He loves to find a place close to me, and is also excellent with the patients. He behaves like a little prince at the office and has been a wonderful brother for my Charm. I recall how worried I was as I was getting him sight unseen. I want you to know how much I appreciate your patience and understanding at how anxious I was, having just lost my precious Guimauve, and always having gone out to see my puppies before purchasing them.
It was a pleasure doing business with you. I continue to recommend you and your kennel most highly.
This is S'mores just bathed and clipped, at 13 months.

Hi Dawn, I just wanted to send you an update on Finn formerly Turbo out of Meagan and Winston. Today he is 6 months old. He is crate trained and almost potty trained. He rings a bell that hangs from the door knob when he needs to go out. 6 out of 7 days a week he rings the bell we haven't made a full week without accidents yet. He loves all people and animals and especially loves kids. My 2 year old niece is his best friend. He loves to play fetch and tug a war and he likes to wrestle with my boyfriend. He is very quiet boy he does not bark when anyone comes to the door which I am so thankful for as I run a business out of my home. He greets everyone with a wagging tail. He can't wait to meet strangers when we go for walks lol he is always ready for cuddles. He is still a little weary about car rides. If he is in my lap and we are on the passenger side he is comfortable but if we are on a bumpy road he physically shakes. It will take some getting used to. His favourite activity is to chase my niece around grandmas house while she yells "run Finn run!". He only ever had 1 bad night where he didn't sleep through the night which I am also thankful for. He could probably sleep anywhere he likes to cuddle in my bed before I put him in his crate for the night. He sleeps from about 11pm to 7-8am. He loves going for walks but he loves roaming freely at my boyfriends parents farm even more where he has become buddies with a German Shepard. He is curious with all animals and tries to provoke them to play with him. Over all he is a happy, healthy, playful little boy. He goes to the vet tomorrow to get neutered. And we start some puppy classes in February with his buddy Indy (the German Shepard). I couldn't imagine my life without him. Thank you so much! Here are a few pictures of him. Sarah Green

Hi Dawn, Just thought I'd give you a puppy update... Saturday was 'vet' day which is a 30 minute drive away and NO car sicknessWe had been doing short trips with fun activities around town and it seemed to work. Both seem very relaxed on Bill's lap🏻
Things went well at the vet. They had another set of shots, more de-worming medication, and we will start their flea program today. They both came out with an A+!
Sunday was bath day and it couldn't have gone any better. They weren't even afraid of the blow dryer.
Boy, are these little ones smart...we've taken them for little walks and on the way back, they both know exactly where home is Potty training is going well. They are ringing the bell periodically now but I think they've realized that by ringing those bells, we jump up and head to their favorite 'play' spot and many times, they don't do their business but just play. They've only had a few accidents inside and I know they will catch on soon.
Their little personalities are cute and fun. They want to do everything together! They steal toys from each other and play hard. Chia already barks when someone knocks at the door. Pepper is a 'modern man' who runs in to his kennel if Chia gets a little rough with him or if we tell him no, about jumping over the puppy fence in the kitchen.
We enjoy our evening snuggle time on the couch. Chia usually goes to Bill and Pepper usually comes to me.
All is awesome in our home We love them and they love us. It's been nice to have Bill home for these few weeks to bond with the puppies and help!
Tomorrow, we travel to a doctors appointment in the city... 3 hours drive each way but with frequent stops, I'm sure it'll go well!
Feel free to share any of our pictures/videos and messages on your testimonial page or on facebook Cheers,
Nicole and Bill
Dexter is a Morkie out of Leyna (retired) and Winston
January 12, 2016
I just wanted to touch base and tell you how much we love our puppy! We picked up Jasper on June 27th. We have re-named him Dexter. He is my baby! Follows me everywhere. We all love him to bits. We pee pad trained him so he could go while we are at work and he was trained in no time! He is perfect with it. Even when we go away, we even stayed overnight in a hotel and no accidents! It's perfect. He has the best disposition and he is so loving. He plays and wrestles with our cat (who is a bit bigger than him). It's is fun to watch them play. He is now around 10 lbs. I just wanted to thank you for our beautiful little guy. He is part of our family and I could not imagine life without him! Our hearts are so full!

I've sent an update already but I thought you'd want a further update on Mia (Buttercup) who was from Eve and Emerson in September 2012. Mia is the centre of our world, she is the most loving and cuddly dog. She loves to sleep, especially if she can cuddle up in your lap or near the fireplace, she adores children, and loves cats! Her temperament has blown so many people away, she's always happy and she's always so accepting of all people.
The best news of all of this is that myself and Mia are now a St John Ambulance Therapy Dog team! As of July 2015, we've been visiting long term care facilities, universities, colleges, and other special events to help with stress relief, pain relief, self-esteem, and overall health. We love it and soon we hope to complete further testing to visit the children's hospital close by because of Mia's love for kids :) I've attached a few pictures, including one of Mia in her Therapy Dog scarf!
I hope all is well, thank you for giving us something so precious.

Hickory and Hazelnut are Maltipoos out of Todd and Stella
Hi Dawn, I hope all is well! You would have been very proud of the girls this evening as they both did so well on the last night of their puppy school. These are their graduation pictures complete with caps (no gowns though- ha,ha!) I had them at the vet yesterday for their rabies vaccine. Hazelnut weighed in at 6 lb, 1 oz and Hickory at 4 lb, 2 oz. They are lovely little dogs - very affectionate and playful. I think I can safely say that they are both housebroken, touch wood. They both run to the door when they have to go which is great. Both are sleeping through the night too. The schedule you sent was really helpful and got us off on the right foot! Talk to you soon. Take care, Margaret
We just wanted to thank you (and of course update you) on Harley. He really has been such a great addition to our family. Kaitlyn said that he is the best thing that's ever happened to her. He has known literally since the day we brought him home that she is his mama. He can roll over, shake a paw, play fetch...if there is more than one of us playing he will take turns taking it to each person. His best friends are his cousins, scooby the black lab and Meika the dachsund. He loves getting dressed and goes crazy when we pull out his shirts to put them on him. He listens soooo well, except of course when the puppy in him comes out again and he becomes mischievous. Never in a million years did I ever believe we would become "those people" but sure enough today we had a birthday party. Kaitlyn made dog friendly cupcakes, there were presents and then Harley, scooby and Meika all went to the outdoor rink to go crazy chasing balls. My sister went to the pet store by us and mentioned that she was going to a birthday party for a dog and funny enough they knew it was Harley. He makes the short trek to the store every couple of weeks. He's pretty hard not to love:) Thank you again for giving my daughter a best friend who could truly help her with her anxiety. Something no doctor or medication has ever been able to do.

This testimonial is long overdue. Missy, the Maltese, was retired from your breeding program in March 2014 and came to live with Audrey and Bob in her forever home in Regina on March 8 when she was five years old. It is now just over a year later and I have wanted to share her story to support the adoption of adult dogs from Dawn’s Dawgs. I have continued to visit the site over the past year and although I have delighted in the successful puppy stories, I strongly feel that your retired breeding dogs also deserve recognition. Just recently, I spotted one of Missy’s puppies and it gave me such a warm and happy feeling to know someone was enjoying one of the offspring of our little girl!
“Miss Missy” is the beloved companion of two seniors. She has brought so much happiness and fun to our life that it is hard to explain in just a few words. Although she was accustomed to a kennel doggy door, she quickly learned how to ask out and has learned to do her business on command, which is very handy when we travel with her. By the way, she loves a car ride even if it’s just to the store! She simply curls up on my lap to enjoy the ride. She has become my dog because I have trained her and feed her most of the time so she follows me everywhere, but she also loves to sit with Bob (Daddy!), even though her favourite place is beside me - squeezed between my hip and the arm of my chair. The only other time she sits on my lap is after her breakfast when she curls up to continue her sleep, while I enjoy my coffee and the newspaper. And, of course, I shouldn’t forget her wanting to be a lap dog when I am on the computer! She does, however, lie contentedly beside my chair while I work. You did advise us that she was not a “cuddly” dog, which is still true, but she wants to be with people and beside them, but on her terms!
Missy’s favourite play area is our bed, where she loves to play hide and seek amongst the pillows and chase fingers in the bedding! I have introduced toys to her and she loves to play tug o’ war and chase “Foxy”, her stuffed toy, to bring back to me. Her walks are by far her favourite activity and she knows her route so well she could do it without a leash. All of our extended family have dogs and Missy has fit right in. We often look after, Kona, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law’s male Shitzu and they simply ignore each other, but yet are companionable, which works just fine. Our son and daughter-in-law have three Golden Retrievers and the photo I have included tells who is boss when we go for a visit! Our granddaughter’s two-year old Havanese is her favourite cousin and they play and romp together until they collapse. Our nephew’s male Westie, Mac, always wants to play with her, but as a female, she chooses the time!
She weighs nine pounds now, so life has been good to her and our vet has indicated this is a good weight for a former breeding female of her size. Our groomer keeps her neatly trimmed and although it's not her favourite place to be, she has grown accustomed to the pampering. She is a good eater although occasionally has off days and we have learned to accept these as part of the psyche of a small dog.
She gives us much laughter when she seems to know the time for her last treat of the day around 8:30 or 9:00 pm. She jumps down from my chair and quickly goes up seven steps to sit and watch me, then continues to back up in short spurts until she is at the fridge, where she can still see me and then she just sits there making small sounds or no sounds until I get up to get her treat.! She does the same thing, except climbing slowly one stair at a time, when she figures it is bed time!
We are happy and proud owners of one of your breeding dogs and we are ever so thankful to have discovered your site in a random search for a small, older dog companion in our senior years. We did not want a puppy which might outlive us and we could not have made a better choice than "Missy the Maltese", our beloved pet and family member. Thank you so much, Dawn.
I just want to let you know what a wonderful puppy Finnegan (Dougie) of Molly and Copper is!! He is a sweetheart and so smart. Just 3 months old and he already knows how to sit, lay down, fetch and shake a paw! He is always up to learning new things like playing tag--he is wonderful with kids. And he really enjoys his sweet potato snacks and belly rubs. His tail never stops wagging! I just have to get him to stop chewing on my slippers lol. And he is such an energetic, playful, and adorable pup, he has charmed every single person he has met so far with his inquisitive and gentle nature and is such a social butterfly. I can't imagine my life without him and he is without a doubt a most cherished member of the family. So devoted to his human companions. I can't thank you enough for introducing Finnegan. And I don't ever hesitate to tell people about Dawn's Dawgs. I will be looking for a brother or sister for Finnegan soon :)
I just wanted to tell you how happy we are with our wonderful new dog Chewie, (Ascot) of Truffles and Ko-Lin. I have never had a dog that has been this quick to train and is just so much fun to have around. We have had absolutely no problems with him and he simply has fit in to our lives extremely well. I would really like to thank you for your professionalism and outstanding service. You made every accommodation for picking him up and the kit you put together was very helpful and beneficial.
Your weaning techniques are spot on, Chewie adapted right away, he slept through the night the very first night. His housetraining did not even take longer than a week before he had it down pat. To us we think of him as Einstein puppy.
He is so good with people and kids and there are so many tricks he is learning. We think he was a dog destined for the Yukon, he loves crunching down ice cubes and frozen berries and frozen fruit as treats.
Once again, thanks so much, I would definitely recommend you to anyone who should ask.
Stephen, Rob, Madisen and Mercedes, and of course Chewie.
Merry Christmas to you and your family. I thought seeing as it was a year ago today that we picked up Rue(Elise) and Stella(Erica) we would give you an update. We couldnt imagine life now without the girls. They have been a joy to have. It still amazes me how two pups out of the same litter could be so completely different. Stella is white with a very slight ting of beige down her back. Her hair can be a nightmare to keep dangle free as it is curly and frizzy. She is about 10.5 lbs and has had no issues health wise throughout the year. She is very silly, playful and happy go lucky. Her favorite past time is bugging Rue to play with her. She had been quite passive with Rue but has learned to stick up for herself more and more. Stella has played well with other dogs but is happier exploring. She is very independent in that she does not need to be constantly in your face for attention and likes her own space. Now Rue is the complete opposite. She is reddish brown and her hair is very different. Very easy to keep tangle free and is fairly straight. She weighs roughly 14.5 lbs and has been sick a few times this past year. I think she is more sensitive to what she ingests and that has been her problem when she has gotten sick. She is still quite timid but seems to warm up to new people and situations fairly quick. She LOVES to be center of attention so she can usually be found sitting on someones knee getting her belly rubbed. She can be very dominate over Stella but passive with other dogs. She has been the easier one to train as Stella gets easily distracted and Rue thrives on the attention. Rue and Stella's all time favorite thing to do is go for a truck ride with my husband, even though Rue still gets car sick here and there. He takes them to our farm where they run for hours chasing each other or birds or rabbits or their shadow. Hahaha!! They are still chewing everything they shouldnt be(mitts, shoes, my wall, etc) but I hope that stops here soon. I check your website quite frequently and noticed that there was a pup in Sugars last litter that looked a lot like Rue with the same coloring and face shape. Such a different look then the others. All the puupies are so darn cute makes you want to take them all home! Anyways thank you and your husband for the help and advice you gave when we picked Rue and Stella. Things could not have worked out any better. Take care.

Well we not only survived our first week together, but we thrived!! Stanley has blossomed over this week into quite the little entertainer!
He is already sleeping through the night, or at least these past 2 nights, eats his meals well, and really loves to play in the yard. His new thing is to grab pine cones and toss them around.
He saw the vet on Tuesday and was really good with her. He didn't love getting all fondled but he didn't fuss much at all. We also gave him a bath and a nail clip on Friday. He tried to escape towards the end of the bath but didn't do to bad at all.
I wanted to thank you for all the information you provided us in his baby book. It's been incredibly handy to assist in his schedule. He pees outside every time we put him on his spot, and hasn't quite got the hang of where to poop but it's coming along much quicker than either of us expected.
Here is our first family photo!!! Keep an eye out for our Christmas one as well :)
Lots of love, Stanley, Kristy and Ryan

Dozer is a Morkie out of Missy (retired) and Jock
I know you haven't heard from us in a while but I thought we would give you an update on our Morkie we got from you last October. We renamed Wally to Dozer. He has been with us for just over a year now and we couldn't be happier. Dozer quickly stole our hearts that day we met you in Regina. He is very smart and was easily trained to ring bells when he needs to go outside. He also has learned how to undo the latches on his crate when we are at work! Safe to say he keeps us on our toes :) Dozer is very fun loving and does wonderfully with kids. He loves to play outside and has fetched since the day we brought him home! Dozer loves to run and play with other dogs and has many furry friends in our community. He loves to cuddle and can usually be found in our bed after a long day! He is just over a year old now (July 27th) and weighs around 5 lbs. We constantly look at him in admiration and are so happy we decided to go through your business to get him. We definitely have recommended you to many of our friends and family. A huge thanks to you for helping raise him into the puppy we know and love today!
Lots of Love From: Brittany, Brian and Dozer
Just wanted to send an update on our sweet maltipoo puppy Peter! (We renamed him to Jake). He his 6 months old and is a very smart puppy, he is also very playful. Everyone that meets Jake says that he is a very calm and patient dog compared to most others.
Jake is trained for the outside and it only took about 3 days to get him settled with this routine!
I have seen a few dogs, but none of them compare to Jake! He is so handsome and intelligent.
It took Jake a few days to get to Newfoundland, due to hot weather in the summer, but we are so happy that he is with us now and found his forever home! Thank you for everything!
Brian, Shelley and Brianna.

Zeva is a Maltipoo out of Truffles and Ko Lin
Zeva is one year old today! We are enjoying her immensely. She is smart, loving, mischievous, and very focused. She managed to get onto our bed to sleep between us( a feat no other has managed !!)
I've had a very hard time medically for the last 3 years - I am on the lung transplant list. We were not going to get another pet but when we saw "Apple" she tugged the heart strings hard! So very glad we decided to love her ! She is definitely part of the family and expects to be included in on everything. LOVE her dearly! Can not thank you enough HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZEVA!!
We have a gorgeous malti-poo from Dawn's Dawgs too! Her name is Roxy and her mom was Whitney, and her dad Ko lin. We got her in 2008. Dawn was fabulous and I even got my brother and sister to buy puppies from her too! All three pups, Maggie, Sophie and Roxy are all the best dogs ever! Truly great temperaments and the loves of our lives! Thanks Dawn you are awesome! I also refer you all the time:)

Three years ago May 19 we got our cutie maltipoo Remy from Dawn's Dawgs all the way to Toronto he flew in. It was a great experience dealing with Dawn Tedford from day 1. I recommend her to many. Remy is such a good, quiet and very smart dog. We can't get enough of him. Thanks Dawn for breeding such a wonderful dog!

Hi Dawn as Averie is six months old today I wanted to send you an update on our sweet girl. She is the biggest sweetheart and well mannered girl ever. She loves everyone that will look at her and greets them with lovely face kisses.
She knows how to sit and lay down on command and is learning to shake and stay along with giving five and giving ten. She also loves her deer antlers to chew on and she loves playing fetch with anything she can retrieve including Jeremy's work socks.
She's is getting better with her kennel but still would much rather come along for a car ride instead. She will often found napping on the couch with jer or I.
We have many people ask where we got her because everyone that meets her instantly falls in love with her sweet little personality
We absolutely love our little Averie. By little I mean maybe only 4 lbs she has been the perfect addition to our "family".
Mia (Buttercup) is a Maltipoo out of Eve and Emerson
We are sending you an update on Buttercup (Mia) who is now about a year and a half old and weighs just 5lbs.
We have had Mia for about a year now, she is a very smart puppy and she loves to play. She is fantastic around other people, and other dogs, and loves any attention she can get! There are times that she gets very sucky and insists on cuddling as close to us as she can for a nap. She's so smart and she’s attached to the entire family. Never wants us to go anywhere, and greets us happily whenever we come in through the door! She has a full box of toys and plays with each and every one of them, loves to play outside, and on cold days she likes to lie in front of the fireplace.
Mia has stolen the hearts of everybody who has met her, her great temperament is the talk of family and friends!
Thank you so much for this opportunity and experience, Mia is everything we expected and more.
Dave, Cathy, Dominique & Mitchell
Thought you might like a pic of Stella (nee Denise). She's wonderful, bright, obedient, healthy. A real joy.
Word on the street is good about you too. My vet of 20 years (dr Veikle) saw where she was from and commented what a good breeder you are. His daughter got a dog from you. And, my nail tech (Kristy) can't wait to get a Morkie from you.
Thank you for my precious little gift!
Stella is out of Sasha and Prince Arthur
Hi there Just wanted to send an update on our Miss Daisy now that she is about a year old. We are enjoying her so much. She steals everyone's heart. In fact my husbands cousin is now getting a puppy from you because of Daisy. :) We honestly can't imagine our life without her. Thank you so much. Brenda Flodell
We are sending a little note to let you know that Amigo (Nate) is now 7 months old and weighs 11.6 lb.
Amigo is a very smart and active puppy. He knows how to ring the bell to go outside or to use his little door. He loves his daily walks and outside activities. He doesn't mind the cold or the snow. He is ready every morning for his walk. His favorite toys are small balls, frisbees, cords and, of course, our shoes.
Amigo brings lots and lots of beautiful experiences into our lives every day and we have lots of fun together.
Thank you for your guidance and suggestions. We followed the routine you gave us and it definitely worked.

Pepper is a Maltipoo out of Johanna and Emerson
I wanted to touch base and update you about our puppy. Pepper is doing great, we love him to pieces! Kennel training is good, he is in kennel for night and while we are at work. No accidents! He pees on command. We hung bells on a string at our back door and he instantly figured it out, always ringing the bells when he needs to go outside. We start obedience classes in January with him. We assume you taught him to fetch, because he seemed to know that from day one. He still can't get down stairs, but he is usually willing to go up. He has a great temperament. Our kids are really good with him and the responsibility too. It was such a treat to get a puppy who obviously had some training. When we'd gotten our lab 15 years ago, he clearly hadn't had any sort of training at all.
Thanks again for the puppy, he is such a delight!
Gadget is a Maltipoo out of Sugar and Chase. He loves the snow and the cold weather this photo was taken on day that it was -15 degrees in Calgary
Yes, there are days he drives us a little crazy and there are days he is a handful but that is mostly because we haven’t had a puppy in almost 20 years and we have forgotten how much work they can be. Our vet laughed at us a few weeks back and asked how we were doing going from one of the calmest and most placid dogs in the world to having a little tornado. Both the vet and the groomer go on about how intelligent he is – which is a blessing and a curse at times. We love the little guy to bits and don’t regret getting a puppy even one little bit, but like parents of human kids, there are times the little ones overwhelm you a bit and make you shake your head.
When it is time to get a brother for Gadget in the late spring, you are the only one we will be talking to.

I can not thank you enough for the wonderful experience that is Shea :) From the moment she entered our home on July 8th she has been a delight and brought us so much laughter and joy.
She is absolutely adorable. I know you have enjoyed the photos but they don't do justice to all of the expressions, the quizzical faces, cute little moments, and complete all-out-of-energy collapses at the end of a play session. She has filled out, and her coloring, facial shape and coat are all just sublime.
Shea is smart as a whip. We have an arsenal of commands and tricks at just 5 months which she performs crisply; sit, stay (very good), fetch, down, roll over, shake your paw, and come. She spends nights happily in the crate, and is now free to wander the downstairs during the day unless we go out. We have worked hard on her behavior through positives and she is not barking unless someone comes to the door, and we have curbed any little love nipping and jumping – a fine line, as she is playing and a cute puppy, but we just went with out instincts to encourage not to do any of this (licks and cuddles instead of biting) and it worked.
Potty training just seemed to happen…loads and loads of trips outside in the early days, over and over! But quickly, if we went often enough and to the same spot, she was going regularly and quickly. A few accidents of course, but not more than 10 or so and even at that within the area in which we had her in the kitchen or hardwood floors.. Now she actually rings a little bell on the front door handle that we hung up to signal that she needs to go out and is very trustworthy!
Her health is great and I shared with you in my note how impressed the Vet was with her welcome package, shots, and deworming. Our 3 rugged, hockey players have all succumbed to her charms and dote on her like their little ward.
We love our little Shea!

For the most part she has settled. Kowen and her still get really excited together but I think that maybe just how it's going to be for awhile until the novelty wears off a bit.
She is a wonderful puppy. She has just fit right into our family. I was a bit concerned with the transition as we had never had a puppy and didn't know 100% what to expect. I thought she would have a hard time without her mom and other puppies around but I think that she is doing just fine. She definitely follows me around the house more then anyone else. But I guess her and I have spent a lot of time together since Wed. She makes us laugh a lot and we love after her kennel time or sleeping how she greets everyone tail a waging!

Hi Dawn, just wanted to touch base with you. Solo is doing amazing. He's so smart and he's attached to me. Never wants me to go anywhere. We love him so much. I will try to get some new pictures posted soon. My labtop was broken so I had no way to get them on facebook. He's about 7 and half pounds now and loves to eat. I think someday we will be getting another one. He as brought so much joy to our lives and would love to give him a playmate someday. Thanks. Danielle

Dear Dawn & Harvey,
I just wanted to touch base with you & to give you an up-date on Lacey. You wouldn't believe the enjoyment & love she has brought into my life!!
She is 7 1/2 months old now and what a clever little girl! We have about 20 or so toys and she knows each one by name - and not only that, she knows what animal has what sounds!! For example, when I say "Who says OINK, OINK?", she brings me the piggy, or "Who says MOOOO?", she'll bring the cow!!! It's incredible - people just can't believe it!
Lacey is completely house trained & rings a bell at the back door to go outside. She picked that up rather quickly & I can tell by the ringing of the bell if she NEEDS to go out, or if she WANTS to go out!!! There is a difference!!! It helped that she loves being outside (a true Prairies girl from Saskatchewan!!!)
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you guys once again for everything! It's a true blessing knowing you are just an e-mail or phone call away when I have questions. You truly do care about all of your "grandchildren" and I very much appreciate knowing you are there for us!!!
Carol Urbanowski & Lacey
I figured it was about time I sent you an updated picture of our little beauty! Can you believe it will be three years on Jan 29th that Terra (Disco) came to live with us? Terra is from Red and Ko Lin. She is such a good little girl, everybody loves her to pieces. She is very smart and polite believe it or not! She waits to be offered something before taking it and waits to be invited up before jumping. She knows lots of commands and won't lick if you tell her not to. I've had people stop me on the road when walking her to ask if they can see her then they want to know where I got her. I've given your website address to many people. One of the girls I work with just purchased Buttercup and she asked me about my experience with you and I couldn't say enough good about you and your puppies. It's obvious by how well behaved and by Terra's good temperament that you are a great breeder who takes the time to prepare the puppies properly for their forever homes. We can't imagine our lives without her!
Merry Christmas to you and yours! Terra, Lisa, Gene, Nicole, Kristen and Ryan.
I just wanted to give you an update on our Zoe (Danica). She is quite the celebrity here in Ottawa...she's been on our news program several times now ...in fact is Miss February in an Ottawa based calendar with me.

Zoe is a Morkie out of Leyna and Chase
I want to thank you for this beautiful Christmas greeting. My gift will be Zoe. I can not even begin to tell you how much joy she has brought to me and my family. In the past our previous dogs have been a little more attached to my husband, but Zoe is my little girl.
I have dealt with a few breeders in my past but never someone as special as you!
May you have a special Christmas with your family filled with happiness.
Thank you for Zoe.
Riley and Quinn are Maltipoos out of Angel and Ko Lin
Sorry for taking so long to get this to you.
Attached is a photo of Riley and Quinn, formerly Eben and Emsley. I'd been trying to find just the right photo for you to use on your web site for your testimonials and this is it. This photo represents where to find these 2 the minute anyone goes into the kitchen and they are usually underfoot.
They are doing great and have adjusted quite well. Quinn slept thru her first vet exam and only flinched when she got her needles, Riley didn't care at all and was just fine. They are slowly getting the run of the house as they become house trained, which they are doing very good at. Riley has no problem waking me at 3 in the morning to let me know he's got to go outside.
They are good with going up the stairs and Riley has just successfully come down the stairs on his own, Quinn is more of the few steps at a time and you carry me the rest of the way.
They have both grown, not much but a little. We figure Quinn might be at the 3 pound range, with Riley hitting 4.5 or 5 pounds. They have learned to understand some words, but treat is their favorite.
Everyone just loves these 2 and can't believe that I flew them in from Saskatchewan, but I tell them that they were worth it and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. We recommend you to everyone that asks where we got them. Dealing with you Dawn was a pleasure, your puppies are the best and I could never imagine dealing with anyone else
I can't thank you enough for having these 2 dreams, as they have brought so much joy to our family.
Thank you again
Paige and Snuggles. Snuggles is out of Gilly and Spike
I know we are only next door, but here are some pics of Snuggles.
He is a good pup... and is quite smart. House training is ok... I think I am trained not him, but whatever we rarely have a mess. He sleeps with Paige and is definately her dog he never leaves her and he gets mopey when she is at school.
Thats all for now
Have a great day

Hello Dawn & Harvey
We have moved from Regina about 16 months ago and now live in Comox , B.C. on the island. All is well and Kixs is the talk of the neighbourhood. He is such a mild and loving dog - we get compliments about him every time some one meets him. He is certainly Delores's dog though and we love him very much. We can't thank you enough and feel very fortunate to have found a dog like KIXS he certainly is very special !!.
From Warren , Delores and KIXS
Hi, hard to believe our puppy "Huck" (he goes by Ollie now) is approaching 2 years old on 4/13. As you know Ollie is the perfect dawg. He is healthy and has never had a bad experience or moment in his life. He loves all other dogs in the world and is truly adorable and intelligent. Here are some photos of Ollie enjoying our family, his cat friend Fozzie and life in NJ!
Cooper is a Maltipoo out of Alexis and Emerson
August 27, 2011
Just wanted to give you an update on our little guy, and a picture -- as promised.
We absolutely love our Cooper (aka Dr. Sheldon Cooper). He is adjusting very well to life with us in Esterhazy. It was a full two weeks before we heard him bark! He has an amazing temperament, and everyone tells us he is the friendliest, calmest dog they know. Though he does have his bursts of energy!
We're seeing the mischievous side, as he recently discovered how much fun toilet paper can be. And what a messy eater! Outside he loves anything he can roll in; dirt, mud, puddles, grass clippings, you name it!
Training is a piece of cake, he's a very bright little guy. He caught on to basic obedience things and even house training within a week or two.
Thanks for everything!
- Matt and Stephanie
Romeo is a Maltipoo out of Ruby and Ko Lin
August 18, 2011
Sorry it has taken so long for us to give you an update on Romeo (aka "Dalton").
As you can see from the attached photo, Romeo, who just turned 1 year old yesterday, is a happy and healthy boy!
Romeo is good natured, smart and very loving. He has brought so much joy into our lives, that we can't imagine being without him. He gets along superbly with our cat and our bird (although the bird has the upper hand on him for sure) and is loving and affectionate to every person he meets. He loves to play "keep away", go for long walks and most of all cuddle.
Thank you once again for giving him such a good start in life, and we will continue to sing your praises to everyone who is considering a dog purchase!
Caroline, David and Hayley from Winnipeg
Diesel is out of Ruby and Chase
I just wanted to update you on Diesel's progress. First of all, we adore this little guy! We have only had him for 2 weeks and he has already learned sit, take it, leave it, and is learning fetch. He is so clever! He still pees all over the floor but that's not a big deal because he lets us sleep through the night! His personality is developing every day. He is a crazy puppy until about noon, then he sleeps and cuddles for the rest of the day.
I've put your contract in the mail and I've given your name to many people who have met Diesel and think he's the sweetest puppy ever!
I hope Diesel's sister is doing well. I assume she's the one on your website that is "on hold". I check every day to see if she's been updated to sold. It's odd how you can become so attached to a picture on a website.
I've included a picture of my children, Sawyer, Griffin, and Sascha with their new best friend.
Thanks for everything!!
Prissy is out of Suebeedaw
Thought I would give you an update (long overdue) on Lucy (Prissy). She has adjusted perfectly to our family, and us to her. She had the pleasure of experiencing an Alberta winter up close and personal and made it through the other side with flying colors AND a love of playing in the snow (which is a good thing). She absolutely loves going for walks and greeting all of the other dogs in the neighborhood (whether they want to greet her back or not). She has been to Avery's school several times and charms everyone! This weekend at Easter dinner will be her first time getting introduced to the entire family and we fear more for the family than for her (ha ha). The personality in this little dog is just so overwhelming and infectious....and hard not to love. Everyone that comes to the house adores her and wants to take her home. We have had so many offers for dog sitting that it's crazy.....shame we never go anywhere though :) She's doing great with the potty training and she does well in her crate when we aren't at home. I'm thinking that she's around 4 lbs now. Avery had the best time this spring picking outfits for her to wear (Randy and Griff were a bit embarrassed to take her for a walk in a pink plaid jacket though.... We are now just waiting on Spring to actually come and stick around for a while.....we're all ready to see the end of the snow. Thank you again for your part in bringing Lucy into our lives and being so unbelievably accommodating and helpful with making it work?. I would not hesitate in recommending you and this whole puppy experience to anyone!
Hope all is well with you and the puppies.
Fiona and Avery Annett
Well, Eddie is a little more than a year old now and we thought you would appreciate an update.
Eddie is our little sunshine. His disposition is as sweet as ever. So far we haven't come across a single person who doesn't adore him. Friends are actually excited to dog sit for him and we're constantly hearing what a "nice" dog he is. His tail is constantly wagging and he loves people. Eddie loves to play-his favorite games are fetch and tug of war and he takes great pleasure in any toy that squeaks. He and Lucy have started playing games with each other without needing any encouragement from us. They could chase each other for hours. He's even starting to snuggle. When I lay on the couch, he loves to find some nook beside me and curl up in it. His kisses make my day. Eddie is truly the sweetest dog I have ever come across. His personality is a testament to good breeding and quality genetics. Mike and I are very grateful to you for bringing him into our lives.
As for his health, he couldn't be doing any better. Since we took him off grains a number of months ago, he hasn't had tummy trouble once. He eats more like a Rottie than a Biewer, and we're convinced that the constant moving of the tail is what keeps him so trim :).
We were noticing the other day how different he looks now from his puppy pictures. The area around his eyes has lightened right up to a tan color instead of the black it used to be. It makes his big brown eyes that much more noticeable. We think he's pretty perfect.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. We see that Belle and Prince Arthur have had another litter. We keep telling people to check out your Biewers, so keep 'em coming!
Laddie is a Morkie out of Suebeedaw and Emerson
I just wanted to let you know that Laddie is doing very well! He is such a smart little guy who has been a joy to train and we are all in love with him! He has a wonderful personality and just loves meeting new people and other dogs. We are very lucky to have him. Thanks so much for giving him such a wonderful start! I am attaching a picture of him that I just took (9 months old) and one of him with my children Logan, Keeley & Tyson (who is holding Laddie). We hope you have a great Christmas!
Dear Dawn, A very Merry and Blessed Christmas to you. What a darling card you have! We are so very pleased and happy with our little Miley and Sophie! I want to thank you for the care, cleanliness, and initial upbringing you give your puppies. I have dealt with other breeders before in my 53 years of purchasing and owning of our poodle puppies but you are by far the MOST professional breeder and so personable and caring of the puppies new “forever home” and their well being of where they are placed. You breed real quality puppies. I enjoyed dealing with you including my concerning phone calls to you! I have never purchased a puppy over the internet before and by only a picture. You went out of your way to take videos of the two and put it on the internet for us to see and choose! Sophie is a great eater………we purchased your brand of puppy dog food right here in Plymouth and the owner of the store said, ”Wow, she uses the best food for sure.”. Sophie has also completed 4 of her 8 obedience and training classes with me ……………Jeff and his family have taken Miley with me also…………. so far and they are a super little learners! I think you can tell how happy we are with our two little puppies!!! Also out vet has told us what healthy and happy little puppies they are!! Everyone who meets them wants to keep them!!! They are with their “forever families” and well taken care of! I wish you health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year and again have a Merry Christmas. Sophie has surely helped to fill some of the void in my life since my husband passed away. I made the right decision………….but sometimes our two poodles wonder!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She brings me comfort, companionship, humor, and such love. Attached is Jeff’s Christmas card picture. He promised he would come over soon and take a picture of Sopie and me..
Warmest Regards,Carol Vos

I haven't forgotten you,but haven't had time to upload any pics of Indy so kept putting it off, still haven't had time, but wanted to touch base with you to let you know how things are going.
I have had a lot of puppies over the years,and loved them all, but i have never had a pup like our indy. He is quite special and has brought so much joy to our family. We have had a rough few months and he has brought the sunshine into our home. Anyone who meets him agrees that he is one of a kind. He is everything and more than what we hoped-he is loving, obedient, snuggly, playful, funny and loyal. He is our best pal and 3rd son!! I can't thank you enough for giving us this remarkable pup. We keep saying, if he's like this at 6 months old, imagine what he'll be like at 2 years!! Thanks so much, Dawn, pictures soon to follow of our handsome boy!!! Karen
Felice and Cleo. Felice is a Maltipoo out of Angel and Ko Lin
April 24, 2010
Hi Dawn. Just to let you know that Felice is doing great....She is settling in so nicely....We are really pleased with her. She already knows how to sit and give paw....Still working on the housebreaking, but she has only had 3 or 4 accidents because we all make sure that she goes outside all day long....She loves being outside because we have a huge fenced in backyard and can run and play as she pleases without being tied on, and she also loves her new big sister, Cleo...She also loves to chase her and bite her tail, but Cleo doesn't mind a bit.....Cleo actually looks for Felice everyday, and they are great friends...We are very happy with both of them! Here is a picture of Cleo and Felice taking a break from chasing each other...Thanks again for such a great puppy! She is very smart and we know it won't be long before she is completely housebroken.
Just a quick update on how Emma (parents... Honey/Prince Arthur) is doing. Emma is now 18 months old and full of fun and energy. She has settled very well into her life here in Kelowna with Sam our 7yr old West Highland Terrier. She is a loving and happy dog and we couldn't be more pleased with her. Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful addition to our family, I would recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a small dog. I have attached a picture (taken yesterday!) of her for you to see.
Sue, Lee, Jess and Jack Richards
Hi Dawn I just thought I'd write you and update you on Jake (Bryce). We look at your website all the time. We are still in Estevan and just bought a bigger house for Jake to run around in. He is a very sweet and loveable dog. Today was his first real haircut so i wanted to send you a picture. Its hard to believe he has been a member of our family since March. It was a strange occurance that I was in the pet store that day after we decided to buy a dog from the humane society. I fell in love with him immediately. My husband and i did a little research on Maltipoo's and looked at your website, then went back that same day and brought him to his forever home. Some how i just knew he was the right dog for us! He now has a friend Paxton (Dale & Launa Coyne) that lives down the street. If you would like updates or your ever in the neighborhood and would like to come see Jake you are very welcome. If you wanted to put any of my info on your website you are more than welcome to! Thank for giving us such a wonderful dog!
In December we bought a Morkie from you her name was Ursula. Our family has named her Bella and now she is a great part of the family. We love her so much and she is such a playful puppy! She is healthy and now weighs in at 5 pounds, so she's a little ball of energy! Bella loves people and other dogs, she is always wanting to say hello, but we have been training her not to bark and jump up. She is a great dog! thank you so much for giving her to us, she is a great part in our lives.
And here's a picture of Bella Ursula Margaret with our youngest daughter! She's soooo been our therapy dog and much loved!
It's been a long time just thought I would drop you an e-mail and a couple pics of Logan!! Logan is my best friend my husband just laughs because I can't go anywhere in the house without him directly behind me he follows me everywhere I LOVE IT. Logan and our son Ty who is now 6 1/2 months get along great, Logan is so gentle with him!!! I can't thank you and Harvey enough for Logan he is my best friend and I would not change him for the world! THANK YOU GUYS SOO MUCH From Stephanie Johnson and Family Whitehorse, Yukon P.S I'm thinking Logan is the only puppy you have ever sent north of 60 lol He loves it here winters are long but so beautiful Thanks again
Colleen and Rebecca holding Jasper. Jasper is a Maltipoo out of Buttermilk and Emerson
Sorry we haven't sent you an update on Jasper sooner but this has been a very hectic summer for us. One joy though has been the love and affection that this (not so little anymore) guy has provided. He is growing like a weed and is already a little over 6lbs. He very quickly adapted to his new surroundings, and has become a very important part of our family. He and Rebecca are inseparable. I hope he does not get too lonely when school opens in September.I have attached a few pictures for you and will most certainly send more in the future. Once again a big thank you from all of us for providing us with such a beautiful puppy.

09 Aug 2009
Hello! Sorry it took so long for me to e-mail. I've been meaning to write and send pictures. We renamed Yvonne to Daisy. She is our pride and joy. We (my husband Paul, Daisy and I) just got back from holidays at the Shuswaps in BC. Daisy got to learn to swim and although not overly excited about it, thought it wasn't to bad by the end of our holiday. She is very affectionate and loving. We just can't believe how much we love her. She enjoys walking - we go at least two but usually three times a day and on holidays the three of us went for long walks together. She would prance between Paul and I as we were walking just looking back and forth between the two of us - a big smile on her face. She loves to fetch her kricket and bug (squeeky toys). She is very smart- she knows all of her toys by name. She loves to play frizbee too! She loves to catch it when it is still moving and then wrestles it to the ground and brings it back. We went and did puppy lessons when she was four months... she did very well! One or two times and she had it. She almost seemed to get bored. She loved her new friends. She has her regular puppy friends she gets to chum with on our cul-de-sac. Maggie is across the street and Colby and Jack are next door. They all love to play and run together. I have to laugh... when Daisy and Maggie see each other (Maggie is a Yorkie) they cry and pull to go and greet one another. Provided it is all clear we will let them run to meet each other. They kiss each others faces and kind of "chat" with one another and then will begin to chase and play with one another. It is such a joy to watch them interact and be so happy! Daisy is very much taking after her Maltese mother. She is now 17" long from nose to bum and 10 1/2" heigh. She weighs aproximately 8lbs. She is predominently white now and has lost most of her tan spots. I miss her puppy look, but she is a beautiful "big girl" now. I am sorry I could only locate one puppy picture. I am just begining to learn how to sort my pictures and attach them. When I locate where I down loaded her other pictures I will send them. Please know she is very very much loved! We think the absolute world of her! Please feel free to write any time and once again I am sorry for the tardiness of this note. Take care for now!
Thought we would give you an update on Nikkea. She is doing great. At her last visit to the vet she weighed 4.2 lbs. She is growing like a weed. She is getting real adventurous and has mastered a few tricks. Potty training is a work in progress. She is trying very hard but still has a few accidents.
Nikkea has brought so much joy to our lives and we cant imagine our life without her. You are a great breeder and we would recommend you to anyone!!!
Thank you again,
Chris and Amy
Just thought you might like to see a picture of Miss Vicky as we call her. She is a very lovable dog and loves lots of affection and to have her belly rubbed she gives lots of affection. She likes to give kisses. She is a little tom boy, plays in the dirt and buries everything she possibly can she always looks disheveled. Vicky has a little playmate Rex-a-roni, my sisters pom poodle cross. They see each other every day and go on daily walks to together. They have a play date on Saturday and spend the day together in the back yard. As you can probably tell she is a very loved part of the family. I look in your web site often and think about getting another dog but I don't know if I could handle two of Vicky. I am so glad we found your web site and found our little puppy she is adorable. Thank you.

Oliver is a Maltipoo out of Buttermilk and Ko Lin
August 4, 2009
I know I haven't sent you an update on Huck (now Oliver) yet - but here it is!
He is doing absolutely wonderfully! He eats well, plays all the time, and is extremely affectionate to everyone who comes within eyesight. Training him to go to the bathroom outside has been very easy (only a few accidents!). He's doing so well that even after only a month, he will bark by the back door to let us know he wants to go out!
Everyone just loves him! He's so playful (fits in very well with our energetic family) and sweet. The first thing our vet said when he saw him was how well bred he was!! So, thanks!!
P.S. I have attached a few pictures of him in our backyard- he's growing like a weed - almost 5 lbs already!!
HI Dawn and Harvey,
It is a pleasure to refer your business to other people , and I do it with total faith behind your dogs and your business. You breed lovely pups. we love roxy and she is a real delight to us. she is quite laid back now, but also likes to get a little fiesty and play as well. She is a doll.
Roxy and Maggie get together all the time and wrastle about for hours on end. Maggie is a real sweetheart as well and loves to poke her nose at your face repeatedly in a fast succession of licks and kisses! it is hilarious! we will take some xmas pics and send them to you, as the picture we have up on the website, you can't really see roxy's good looks. hee hee...
thank-you for being such great breeders, you can tell you take great pride in your puppies, and moms and dad dogs as well. Have a good christmas and we will be in touch!

Finally got a picture of the two of them together! Finny is doing great and is a good boy. He has had all his shots and will get fixed in December. They get along so well – real pals! We love our puppies!
Kola (white pupppy) is a Maltipoo out of Falina and Emerson
Well Cola is doing GREAT!! We love him so much; he has fit right into our home! He is already potty trained; he goes right to the door!! And loves the snow!! Much unlike Pepsi…he is eating well even though Pepsi is enjoying his puppy food as well. He sleeps very good in his kennel no crying at all!! Please see attached picture!!!! He’s so adorable, very laid back and very good to Pepsi… he is amazing!!!!!

George is a Maltipoo out of Chantelly Joy and Emerson
Things here Boston are going well..I finally got someone to take our picture for the website..
George is getting bigger and he is so sweet and so much fun to have. My entire family loves him and I always have plenty of people volunteering to take him if I need someone to watch him.
He is also a good sleeper like his Mom! He sleeps in his crate on the floor next to me and most of the time I am up before he is. He is adjusting to city life and survived the first snowstorm we had here last week.
I will keep in touch and send more pictures I hope you enjoyed the holidays.
Joey is a Maltipoo out of Esprit and Emerson
Hi Dawn - I thought I'd send a recent picture of Clay. We've now renamed him Joey. He's doing really well here! The vet weighed him on Monday and he's now 4.1 lbs. He had his next shot and is scheduled to go back again in 3 weeks. He's doing great with his house training. Very few accidents any more. We sure love him. He's playful (has that crazy puppy behaviour sometimes during the day - lots of energy), sleeps well, and is eating well. I'm sending along a picture of the two of us.
Chuck is a Maltipoo out of Charcoal and Ko Lin
Just wanted to give you an update on "Vince" who we renamed Chuck. (Our mom wasn't sure about the name at first but it stuck!) He is doing wonderful! He adjusted very fast and even our cat (who hates all dogs) loves him! They chase each other around the house. He passed his "manners 1" class, we were very proud that he was the only dog who didn't bark once the whole session! He loves people, he gets more excited when other people come over then when we come home! He just had his first weekend sleepover at our friends house and was awesome there! I have attached some pictures of him from the last 5 months. He is almost 7 months old, we can't believe how fast he is growing up! Thank-you so much for an awesome puppy! We recommend you guys to everyone!

Ryley is a maltipoo out of Alexis and Ko Lin
Hi Dawn and Harvey
Today is Riley's birthday so I wanted to email you some pictures and update you on him. He has been a great dog these past 10 months and we have thoroughly enjoyed him. He is very smart and knows how to shake, do high five, sit, lay down and just recently rolled over. It is hard to believe he is a year old. His full weight turned out to be 11.5 lbs. As you can see by one of the pictures he got some new toys for his birthday. And by the pictures you can see how CUTE he is. Everyone who sees him that is what they say " how cute". I just wanted to let you know that he is going great. I hope all is well with you.
I just want to tell you how much I love my two little babies!!!! They did amazing on the drive home. Ace slept on my lap the whole way and Taffy on my cousins. Than when we got home Taffy tried to take on my moms dogs while Ace wanted nothing to do with them.
Everyone who meets them falls in love with them, So I can see you having some orders come spring. My parents love Taffy's personality as she thinks she is so tuff! And everyone can't stop laughing at how cute she is as she is so different looking.
Ace is the more quiet one but melts every ones heart as he loves to be held and cuddled all day and he has the cutest puppy eyes. He is my weak spot for sure. I sent Denny a video of them last night and he is so excited to meet them this weekend. I will take pictures of them when I get home and send them to you.
I love these little bundles of joy. Your place was awesome and your knowledge about each puppy and dog was great to hear. I thank you for the books and the little package you made up for them.
I hope to purchase another puppy maybe this summer most likely for my mom as she wants one more, to add to the family and has really fallen in love with these two. I think she wants one small like Taffy and like her personality of being a little trouble maker so if you have one like that do you mind letting me know.
Thanks again for letting me have a these puppies off of you I love them so much, they will be very loved in our family.
This is a copy of the reference letter that Susan sent when I gave her name as a reference.
Nice to hear from you. I'd be delighted to tell you about my new addition to our family. Hopefully, you've done your homework about this dog thing....I have never had a dog before so this was something that I thought through before actually making the final decision. I wanted a small -medium size dog that I could walk further than the end of the driveway. The nice thing about maltipoos is that they are non shedding (my 2 Siamese cats drop more hair than the dog).....I was given Dawn's website by a friend. I did call and speak to a few people inquiring about a dog. I must admit when I was talking to Dawn she was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable about the possibility of purchasing a puppy from her. I was hesitant about having a little puppy shipped via air but Dawn reassured me that he would be fine. She called me as soon as she dropped him off at the airport. She insisted that I call her after I picked him up to let her know that he had arrived safe and sound. When he arrived in Toronto, I was told that it would take only 20 min. to have him off the plane and be waiting for me at Cargo 1.....had to show some ID and sign some papers then was shown where to pick up the puppy. He arrived safely in a little crate with a cute doggy blanket inside (this is very handy....it is the perfect size and I use it all the time when he is taken in the car or when I need to crate him in the house......you will not need to go and buy one)......also, secured by tape, was a Rubbermaid bin on top of the crate with a bag of starter food, pages of puppy information, the vet papers for my puppy and a DVD about crate training. When I went to Dawn's website, I was able to see the puppy that appealed to me. Dawn also took more pictures for me so I could see him (a couple of weeks can make a big difference). She placed a pop can beside him so I was able to tell exactly how big or small he was. Dawn has a variety of sizes within her puppy collection and I chose a puppy that was predicted to weigh between 7 - 9 lbs. at full growth. At the last vet visit on June 14, he weighed 6 lbs. He is now 6 months old and I have an appointment next Friday with the vet to have a pre-op checkup to see if he's ready to be neutered. My puppy has also graduated from puppy school. I would highly recommend this. It was more of a training session for me rather than the puppy. He is a very happy, healthy, loving little boy who has added so much joy into our lives. Every time we look at him, we smile. He sleeps at the end of my bed and wakes me up with kisses and gentle nibbles. I would highly recommend Dawn if you are considering a puppy that has come from a kind, caring and loving environment. I hope this helps with your decision. Please keep in touch and let me know if you have chosen a puppy. Send along some pictures. I'm going to send you some pictures of my little guy. He just got back from the spa.
Princess Zeoy turned 1 on Wednesday and is doing well. She seems to have topped out at 6.5lbs. She loves to play with Henry, who is a tad smaller and Izzy who is a giant. Henry stays with us when Annie travels and Zoey has stayed there once when we were out of town. Izzy lives just a few block away, so we try to get them together a least once a week.
Zoey is the best dog we have ever had. She is smart beyond belief. She will do almost anything for a treat, knows almost a dozen tricks. Never had a problem with potty training, she is so good about letting us know. She loves people, she loves to go to the office with me and greet everyone and she is almost leash less. Her only hang up with that is wanting to run to great someone or another dog. I could go on and on about her. I have become one of those dog owners I used to laugh at.
Her coat is beautiful, long or short. She is one happy dog! I will send pictures from my other computer soon.
Thanks again! We hope to send many more referrals.
Dawn and Harvey,
Lucky had a great summer with us. Jen loves him so much that she took senior pictures with him.
July 15, 2009
I thought I would send you one of my favorite pictures of Bug. He had his first birthday last month and is just over 5 pounds now.
As you can see from the picture, his eye staining is reduced dramatically thanks to the Angels Eyes. What a great product.
Bug has been the greatest addition to our household and I can't imagine my life without him. He has the best personality and is quite the little character. He makes me laugh on a daily basis.
My mom is still smitten with Ryder and he has grown into a very nice dog as well. We have nicknamed him Pigpen as he always manages to come back in the house filthy dirty. I don't think any dog has as much fun outside playing as Ryder does.
Thanks so much for raising such great dogs.

Jolie was saying you would like to see some pictures of Ryder. Here are some fairly recent ones. He is such a comical little thing and makes me smile all of the time. He has become just as attached to me as I have to him.
Here are some recent photos of Sadie. She has gained some weight and now tips the scales at 3lbs 7.5 oz. Anne's LuLu hasn't gained much although she eats like crazy. We are so happy with her and she brings such joy to us each day. Thank you for the care you gave to her because she is such an even tempered affectionate pup. I have told so many people about you and have given out your magnets - I'm sure you will be hearing from Kelownians. Sue
These are a few pictures of some of my favorite things - grandchildren, dogs and puppies. These were taken in June 2009 when my daughter and granddaughters came for a visit.

Kendra, James and the girls stopped out to visit with Rosie on Easter Sunday. While they were here Ashlynn and Elise couldn't resist climbing in the puppy pen and playing with the puppies.

It's Sammy D's 11 week old birthday today! We can't believe how fast this
week has gone!
He is doing exceptionally well! Sinatra and him are playing every chance
they get. We find that Sinatra at 6 months and 8 lbs heavier tends to play a
little too rough...so we are keeping their play dates under supervision.
He seems to be adjusting well. He is very cuddly and the moment the kids
are in his area he is bounding on their laps right away! His 'pad training' is
going VERY well. In the week that we've had him...he's only not gone on the pad
He is eating well...since day one.
He has been visited by our groomer at the house ..... she gave him a little
trim around the eyes and paws....he was very still! lol.
All in all....we are all just so in love with this little guy....he's got a
lovely disposition .... very affectionate...and blends into our family
I'm enclosing a photo of Sammy D and I....thought you'd like to add it to
your website as another thrilled client!

I just thought I would send you an email and update you on how Lincon (formerly Ranger) is doing.
Lincon is such a good boy, he is loved by everyone.... and I mean everyone (even my Mom who puts on the "A dog is a dog, and I am indifferent towards them". She is in love with him, and even lets him lick her toes). Everyone who meets him, can't believe how cute and well behaved he is. The other day I had to get grad photos in my nursing whites, and I took Lincon and the photographer took a grad photo of Lincon and I.
He is also one of the smartest dogs I have known. He loves walks and is great on a leash. He has now mastered Sit, Stay, Lay-Down, and Rollover. Our next tricks on the list are Bang-Bang and Shake-A-Paw.
Kennel training was a breeze, he only whined the first 1.5 nights and then slept soundly for 8 hours in his kennel at night. Two weeks ago he began sleeping with me in my bed (We both love it).

Daisy arrived in one piece thank goodness and she is just the sweetest little thing ever. We just love her. She has slept around my neck like a little fur collar for the past two nights and my daughter gives her kisses non stop.
She is doing a great job walking on a leash. We have renamed her Nilla, our other puppy's name is Oreo so we have two cute little cookies.

I just want to update you on how Gus is doing. He's doing great. He is a very active puppy. All he wants to do is play fetch with his toys. He is very smart and has been house trained for a while now. You would not recognize him. His head is all white with a little tan and his body looks gray with white and tan legs. He is adorable. While visiting your site I noticed Cheleste is going to have puppies. I'm interested in buying one. Gus could use a playmate and it is easier to have two small dogs because they will always have each other. I will keep in touch. Take Care

Thank you so much for providing us with such a great loving pet. We would happily recommend you to anyone we know looking for a dog. He was obviously born into a great environment.
You were so helpful when we were picking him out and ever since we picked him up from the airport we have absolutely adored him!
