|Blue Ribbon Male "Rio" Sold
changed much. He is awesome. He would do anything for me, except for not circling things......
Thought you might like /enjoy. My daughter Meghan and Rio have been quite the sensation I took
a photo of them in the Ipswich River to Stop the Pipeline which would have destroyed 3 miles of bank forever. They were a
Facebook sensation. I made a life size poster and they went to all the meetings, people loved it. here is a link to the
photo on the website http://www.ipswichriver.org/our-work/policy-advocacy/
Now we may have another venue due to over pumping and the
drought. Here they are in the dry river bed of Martins Brook in Wilmington. see attached.
He is a handsome boy!
Thought you you might like these photos I took today of Rio. Took
him to the Brooks Farm State Park in Carlisle for 2 1/2 hours. He loved it. We were wet and I had to carry him here or there
but he did great. He has figured out how to get up and down my back stairs to the deck ( 6 and steep) already. I didn't help
at all I just was ready to catch him..... but he didn't fall. He was so pleased with himself he did it again only faster only
slipped off once when he got distracted with a pile of pine needles in the corner........ at 8 weeks? Impressive. He is a
handful! Very smart! I might think about some classes for something, I think he will need a lot of challenging. Thank you!
Meghan and I are definitely planning on coming by for the social Sat. looking forward to it. I attached a couple of photos
of Rio from june 16th and this past weekend at Boxford St forest after a little swim in the beaver pond. He changed so fast
from the 16th to now, obviously bigger but also darker, he blew out lots of his puppy coat and is getting his big boy coat
Hope all is well, looks like Dohate and Thelma produced a bunch of cuties again. Just
wanted to share a a few photos of the sweet beast. One is at Lynn Beach about a month or so ago and the others are his 1st
birthday photos. He just looks so cute. BUt don't let that look fool you! He is doing great. I think he is finally stopped
growing, thank God. His only quirk - attacking the door when people come, why he has his leash on in the photo. He really
is over the top when it comes to "protecting", he obvioulsy needs better training. We miss puppy social and
training! He still has that cute puppy look but of course he really isn't a puppy anymore.

Chief & Sam (right)--- 1yr old both doing great.
|Brown Ribbon Male "Wyatt" SOLD
six months without a shepherd I thought we were ready for another one. We are exhausted, and it hasn't even been two days
since we picked up our little devil dog. Did he ever come out of his shell! I have never crated a dog before, so the first
night we did not try it. He was like a little banshee running in and out of the dog door. He was having the time of his life,
while we could barely function by morning. (And to think we were so amazed and proud of how smart he was to use it so quickly.
By the morning it seemed as if he was taking us on a carnival ride all night.) We took him to the vet on Saturday morning
just for a routine check up. He claimed that we had an excellent puppy. But of course we did not have to pay him to know that!
While we were out we bought a crate for him. Thank you so much for the article on crate training in our info folder you gave
us. If I did not read the part about how they will scream like a "raped ape" I would have caved in. That was a perfect
analogy. Who knew something so little could scream like that! We all survived the night with one poop break at 4:00am. Barely
a whimper out of him the second time. We are still learning ourselves along with him. I do not know what attributes I could
tag him with that haven't already been said by others. He is all of them and more. WE LOVE HIM!!!

Hi Cathy, Here is a picture of Wyatt . (We call him many things, but
so far Wyatt is probably his name) It has only been six days and look at the change in him. He has become quite the character--he
is very determined to say the least. Daryl
Hi Cathy, It is hard to believe Wyatt is only four and a half months
old. He looks like a miniature shepherd instead of a puppy. Everything is in proportion so he doesn't have any of the gawkiness
you expect with a puppy. Everyone is enamored with him. He is such a wonderful boy and so smart!
Hi Cathy, Well, Wyatt had pneumonia in November. You would never know
it to look at him. He weighed 83 lbs. at that visit on 11/24/12. I would imagine he weighs more now. He is unlike any shepherd
I have ever seen or had. He has unlimited energy. He plays so hard and runs so fast it seems like he is flying. The first
night we bought him home he was like a whirling tornado, and he has not changed since then. Everywhere we take him, people
want to know where we got him from. I could fill a book with the countless compliments I have received for him. I know that
everyone that has a puppy from you thinks that they have the best dog, but they are wrong. We do! Seriously, you should pat
yourself on the back, because your hard work in breeding reflects in the pups you produced. Please keep me notified on the
black females when one becomes available. Would you like me to send a deposit? Thanks, Daryl
|Black Ribbon Male "Jackson" SOLD
Dear Cathy, I hope the holidays find you & your family well. As you can
see from our Christmas card, Jackson has grown into a fine, strong, most handsome German shepherd. He has added so much happiness
& love to our home/lives. He learned the basics very quickly with a string of puppy obedience classes he had the main
things down pat. He LOVES the car/truck. Our longest trip with him was to Maine this summer. He needs to be in the front seat
between us. Whenever I just look at him, I always think of his parents Thelma & Dohate. He has the look of both of them
combined with his mother's tongue (haha) it's sooo long! His favorite thing in the worls is to play catch/retrieve with these
rubber balls, he has every color and I swore he rounds them up and knows when one is missing. He will search until he finds
Jackson could not have come along at a better time, we lost my Mother
this year. I got more comfort from talking and walking with him than anyone else could give me. I know you take great pride
in breeding your dogs for temperament & intelligence, but in my opinion, you bred them with the ability to love, and for
that I am eternally greatful.
He now weighs 102 lbs. He is a big boy,
but has excvellent form. His face is just a big picture of happiness, with mischeif combined. Thank you again from the bottom
of my heart for enabling us to be the proud "surrugate parents" of our Jackson. We love him so very much!
Merry Christmas Cathy, Take care
