|Brown ribbon black & tan male "Beck"
Oh my gosh, Beck is huge. I think he skipped over
the puppy stage (minus the chewing). He's about 7-8 months old now and we are really enjoying him. The weather
is getting better now so we are taking him for long walks and have found a spot in the woods where we can let him run free
and throw the frisbee. We, of course, went through about 4 plastic ones until we came across a non-toxic
rubber frisbee that appears to be BECK proof.
We are really enjoying him and look forward to
many more years to come.
Just checking in with you in regards to the pup I purchased
from you 3 weeks ago.
Well, you were absolutely right. He is just the best dog ever. We named him Beck.
We wanted a good German name. :-)
Beck has seen the vet and he is in excellent health. He is already
potty trained with only one accident a few days ago. He enjoys the kids and I take him every where I can to get him
exposed to other people and other dogs. So far he is adjusting just fine. I have found myself in the alpha momma
role as he follows me all over the house. He has a wonderful disposition and I know he's going to be very happy here.
We are still working on the relationship between him and the cat. My cat is tolerating him for now but sends him a
few corrections (swats) here and there. He just wants to play with her and she has no patience for that. I see
that she relates to him much like she did with our other dogs so I'm confident that they will be the best of friends once
I have attached a few snapshot of Beck. He is growing every day and he's well
on his way to be a big boy. A big boy with a gentle heart. I am so excited and happy with my choice
and I am so relieved that I did business with such a wonderful breeder.
Thank you so much!!
and my girls (Jayme and Emily)
|Green ribbon black male "Kingston" (right)
Hope all is well!
I wanted to chime in with you with an update on my boy! He is super smart and we continue
to go to school for training every other Thursday. My dog trainer is amazing and teaches me so much (as well as Kingston)!
just a love bug and makes me laugh every day. Continues to get along with everybody 2 and 4 legged that we meet!
I am waiting until he is about 20 months (1 year 8 months) old before I start to take him jogging with me (so around April
/ May next year).
His girlfriend is Lucia who is a Boxer mix. She is my neighbor’s dog and when he sees
her outside in the field he starts crying to go outside to play! They adore each other and play so well together.
bro Benson still tolerates him J. I think Benson would actually be sad if King wasn’t around. My mom adores
him and asks me all the time to take him for a few days! She literally drives an hour to grab him and take him to
New Hampshire. He does love it up there with all the open fields and brooks. He is great company for long walks!
I was finally able to take him to Malibu Beach in Dorchester. He absolutely LOVES the water! I would throw his
chuck it ball and he would dive in for it and swim back waiting for me to throw it again! (I attached a video as well
– hope you are able to view it)
I last weighed him about 3-4 weeks ago and he was a lean mean 88 lbs. Happy
and Healthy and I cannot believe he is over 1 year now. I am not sure what I would do without him! Thank you
again – he is the best dog ever!
Attached are a few pics!
Enjoy and I will be in touch again soon!
Hi Cathy –
Hope all is great with
I wanted to send an update on my baby boy! Kingston is still the best! We continue go to training every
other Thursday and he is thriving! Such a smart boy!
He loves loves loves to play ball! We play every day!
He can hold 3 orange Chuck It Balls in his mouth at once and run around! Crazy dog! J
I have not been able to
get to the beach with him so I haven’t tested out his swimming skills. I hope to get there at some point this
I walk around Dorchester people stop to tell me how gorgeous he is! He loves the attention! He plays so well
with all dogs we meet in the park and is super friendly with adults and children – although we are working on receiving
treats in a more gentle manner!! I still feel like he is going to take off my hand sometimes. (haha) – so I don’t
allow kids to give him treats yet. We will get there.
Here is a picture taken on Memorial Day. He is with
my sisters dog Benny. They are good friends – but sometimes King likes to invade Benny’s space.
Benny will let him know to get lost…..but King doesn’t always take note of Bennys cues. It’s funny.
believe he will be a year old in August – time just flies!!! I’ll be sure to send a birthday pic!
things are great and I will of course chime in with you again real soon!
Hi Cathy –
I have been meaning to write to you and send you pics after Veronica did not too long
ago. Things have been so busy I feel like I haven’t had 2 seconds. J
Kingston is just THE BEST! He is doing so well and a HUGE love! I have him at Day Care called Fenway
Bark a few days a week. He is definitely a fan favorite over there. He loves the people and they just adore him.
He gets well socialized and has never once had a problem with any other dogs. The caretakers say King’s best
friends is this one huge Great Dane named Abe and this little Boston Terrier named Luke. Couldn’t be more different
in size – haha – but I think its super cute!
I also have him in training at The Compatible Dog in Brookline.
We go every other Thursday for an hour. He is doing great – definitely shows off and is an A+ student during
school then relaxes a bit when we work on skills at home! (haha) But he is doing very well with obedience.
He has had 2 flare ups of Panosteitis. 1st time was his left front
leg (January) and the 2nd was his right front (last week). I have him treated with Rimadyl and limit his
activity and he is normal and not limping within 5 days. He doesn’t act like he is in a lot of pain…still
wants to run and jump, plays with all his toys, has no fever and eats the same and bowel movements are the same. The
dog trainer and vet say it’s rather common in large breeds and he should grow out of it. J
I get so many compliments on him all the time and throw out your name and Kennel.
There was another black shepherd at my dog training place last week. A gentlemen there wanted to specifically know
where I purchased King! (Of course King was the most handsome and a much more calm, cool and collected temperament
than the other) – I was flattered! He truly is such a great dog with a great personality!! - - and he
has mighty big paws – EVERYONE comments on his BIG PAWS!! I love it!
Here are a few pics!
I will definitely chime in with you again very soon!
(last weigh in about 2 weeks
ago he was 67-68lbs) (The collar on him in the pic makes it
look like its tight on him – it really isn’t L I wish I took it off for these photos)
I have been wanting to update you on Kingston! I am so happy to have him! He has been nothing but a
joy to me! And to think I was hesitant at first not knowing if I was ready! Glad Todd and Veronica nudged me
to give you a deposit that 1st visit.
King is great! He is fully housebroken (YEAHHHH!!) – gives a little
bark/cry and sits in front of the door waiting for me to put on the leash when he needs to go out! We are still in
the teething era. He likes to come up under the table when I am working from home and take a little chunk out of my
foot. Haha – we are working on it. A lot of his adult teeth are coming in. He knows ‘sit’,
‘give me paw’ and ‘stay’. However, the ‘come’ can be a little challenging at times!
He will be 4 months on Monday and I just weighed him and he is ~44 lbs. He looks great!
He loves to
annoy my sisters 5 year old terrier mix Benson (Benny). Benny tolerates him! It’s really cute.
Both my sister
and I live across from different parks so he loves to be off leash playing ball and chasing all his new friends.
asking when his ears would go up. Well…….they most certainly did! They are like large antenna’s
on his head! He is just so super adorable.
Veronica and Todd’s pup Roady came over the weekend after Thanksgiving.
King and Roady wrestled with each other and played forever! They had a ton of fun!
Here are a few pics!
in with you again soon.
Have a very Merry Christmas!
Dawn and Kingston
I decided to name him Kingston (aka KING). King is doing fantastic! I think he
loves his new home and neighborhood.
We run around in the field and he follows and chases me. He is such a little
He and my sisters dog Benson get along great! As far as potty training - he
has been doing real well with going outside as I try to get him on a routine. So far only 1 accident. J
Bedtime was tough as he cried for 10 min straight in his crate and it broke my
heart. He is in my room but just wanted no part of the crate. Eventually he calmed down and fell right to sleep.
Slept the whole night – no accidents nor did he cry in the middle of the night. J
loves to run around and play….then when he is tired – just goes to this one spot in my living room and passes
out – it’s cute!
Here are 2 pics –
I’ll keep them coming!
you so much –
I just love him to pieces.
