Brandi & Mike,
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. These pics of Mitsi were from our trip to New Braunfels. I still can't get over what a good little traveler she is. She's our baby. She's the Princess of the House!!!
Take care,

Brandi & Mike,
Sandy isn't quite sure about all this nor does she quite comprehend going outside on the flexi but she seems to being doing fine. She slept in my arms all the way home. She did eat last night and was real animated this morning when everyone was let out. Trying to get pictures of them all together but she is still just watching from a distance. Here's a picture of her in her first "Sit, Stay" with Missy. Her tail is wagging so all is well. Thanks so much for entrusting her care to me.

Brandi & Mike,
Merry Christmas! I'm sending a couple photos of Chris taken today. He had to wear his Muttluks for our walk today because we're having a white Christmas. He has been wearing them a lot lately because we've seen plenty of fresh snow in the last month. He's a real good sport about wearing them and his coat. I have him entered in an obedience trial in mid January. We're just doing wild card novice to see where he's at. He's learned to hold his dumbbell better than any retriever I've ever owned and he's learning to fetch very well. He loves learning new things. I can't wait to get him started on scent articles. We loved your Christmas card. Enjoy the rest of your Christmas and have a Happy New Year too!

Brandi,
Earlier this year I was telling you about teaching my boys to help with the laundry and said, " I cannot wait to post a pic of him unloading the dryer. I don't mind the chores as much - the boys get SO excited at laundry activity it seems like a joyful affair. Too fun."
I am glad you asked for a pic of him unloading the dryer-- I have been laughing and laughing and I needed to get one!! He's cheap help too-- joyfully accepts string cheese in payment!! I got the idea from service dog tasks. I'm lucky enough not to need a service dog, but you never know, and it is really fun to see them actually helping rather than just doing cute tricks!!

Brandi,
All is going well. She is just so cute and learns so quickly we are all in love... even my husband who isn't really much of a pet person has fallen in love. I hope you enjoy the photo. I snapped that sitting at my desk to put in the photo slot of her Christmas stocking. I think it really captures her personality and I loved the way the sun is shining in the hair on her ears. Thank you for her. She is a welcome addition to our family. And needless to say, very spoiled.

Brandi,
Oh how Trek had me laughing at him today!!!!!! If you've been watching the news you may know we got our first snowfall in the Chicago area. Now - last year Trek had a terrible time with ice balls in his pads - so I bought him mucklucks. Now mind you - Trek is game for trying anything once and will do anything you show him to earn a click/treat. So we did one foot - then the other - and got him walking aorund. Oh I have to get it on tape before he gets used to them - he was stomping around the floor like he had tape stuck to his pads. Slap - slap - slap - slap - high stepping with his front feet to clicks and treats - then - once I stopped crying-laughing - we went for the back feet. Now high stepping and slap, slap, slapping on the floor all the way - I thought I would help him figure out why I was muffling his feet like this and just put him out in the snow. I swear you saw the light bulb and heard the "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I get it!!!!!!!!!!! Hey.................these are great - look at how fast I can run in the snow now!!!!!!! Woooooooo hooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a dog! I'm charging up the camera now to get a pap-o-muckluck pic for the files! The rest of the crew was watching all this and you could just hear them muttering betwixt themselves - "Glad she picked Trek for this."

Brandi,
I'm working from home today and Addyson is loving it! Wanted to confirm for you what you already knew....she is spoiled ROTTEN already. She officially thinks that she can not possibly sleep in her play pen at night. She made it all night Friday night, and Saturday night she made it all night until 4am - then I put her in bed with us and Asya. Sunday night she was having no part of sleeping in her playpen. I figure she's going to sleep with us anyway like Asya does, so why not now instead of later. Can you say, 'Princess Puppy'?? She played outside in the backyard with us yesterday. She was much more adventurous. It was so beautiful out too. Addyson loves to run around in the grass. She got to running so fast she got her back feet in front of her front ones on a turn and wiped out. She sat up and looked at me like, "what just happened?" Then she jumped up and took off again. She also likes to roll over on her back for a tummy rub while she's laying on the bed by me. She's a great cuddler too. She's just what I wanted!

Hi Brandi,
Hope all is well, I wanted to share some photos with you.
Kerrmit (Atlas) is doing great, he sleeps through the night, and uses his piddle pad 99 % of the time.
The boys (Justin and Gavin) love to race him in the yard, we are absolutly amazed at how fast he is!
Have a great holiday!

Missy handled her photo with Santa like she did it everyday. The only one of my 3 dogs that didn't make an immediate attempt to get away. I know the guy who was dressed as Santa and he is a dog person so that might help or I've socialized her enough that she thinks it's fine to go with who I put her with. Missy is a dear. She is partial to Jaime so if she eludes me, I get him to get her. She rules the roost with the other two. Kiko gets his feet bit until he plays with her and she likes running up to and into Jack to hear him squeal. She has claimed all the toys and if the other two take one, she goes and takes it away from them and plays keep away with it until they lose interest. She does love taking naps with me and has to lay on my torso for our naps and flat tells the other two that is her space. Enjoy the pictures.

(Missy was bred by Riley's Papillons, CH Braylor's Get Back JoJo is her sire).

Brandi,
Attached is the first try at a xmas pic for this year. I more than adore Rem as a companion, of course, but he wants to work, so competition or not, we will work!!! I think he is more than ready to earn his CGC, but I will schedule that when I have more time in the spring. I am trying to get him ahead in agility with some private lessons right now. I am having a blast too with his private sessions, I hope to continue this a while longer. He's my little man, he's always there for me. That bright little face melts my heart every time.

She is home. I love her! Oh, she is a happy little girl! She has been following me every step all morning. Louise just watches her while Hal is actually playing with her. They are about the same size. The birth dates are just one day apart. Anyway, she is holding that tail over her back and stacking if she thinks I have something she needs. She has made herself at home. Here's her first snow! Thanks again Brandi for sending her to me.

Brandi & Mike,
Here are the newest pictures of Georgy (BB) at age two. He is a fierce hunter and the dead cricket in the picture proves it. He also likes Christmas time, pulling the bows off the packages and chewing them up! He attracts a lot of attention when we go out. Most people have never seen a papillon up close and personal. He is beautiful, smart, and very lovable. He likes to sleep on my lap when I'm at the computer and doesn't like me out of his sight. He has now perfected his southern bark since he lives in Alabama. He said to tell you ruffff ruffff.
Enjoy,

Hi Brandi,
It's been a while since I've updated you on Austin and he's doing great. He sure is a handful! He's always on the go, loves playing with every dog he meets, wrestling with his big sister Chloe, and he just lives to eat. He isn't afraid to stand up to other dogs (and discipline puppies) and play all day long. He's been in agility classes since he was about a year old, and just celebrated his 2nd birthday last month. He's excellent in agility and LOVES it. I see pictures of his brother Remy on here and he reminds me so much of Austin! I'm glad to see you added new pictures of Candy and Jojo, they are just gorgeous :) His fringe is really coming in, and his tail fluff is touching the ground. He loves getting "pretty" and being brushed and bathed. He gets comments all the time when I take him to dog shows with Colleen, mostly from people asking me if I'm showing him! He's very well behaved in general, I'm so glad he's maturing into such a great little guy. He topped out at 10.5" at the shoulders which is perfect. I've attached a picture from Halloween, he was a "Stalker" as a joke, because when he goes to work with me at Dog Daycare, he just loooves all the girls!

Good Morning Brandi,
I have just Fed Exed a box to you overnight. I have sent the signed contract, Atlas's new baby blanket, and 2 snuggle toys, which have been laundered and each of the boys slept with last night, as to have our "smell" on them. We hope this way Atlas will have something familiar to bring back home in the car ride. The boys are so excited (Justin age 7, Gavin age 4). Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and we look forward to seeing you and our new boy Atlas on Friday.

Dear Brandi and Mike,
Just wanted to share this cute picture of Shmooli. She is doing well and is so much fun. Shmooli really loves to run the house and the family...both human and canine. This week she is welcoming the college daughter back from Colorado and seemed surprised and a little perplexed as to where our daughter had been the last 3 months. The weather is great here in Memphis and she loves to be in the backyard chasing her dog sisters and the falling leaves. When she finally comes in she falls asleep in her favorite spot on the top of the couch, where she can keep an eye on all around her.
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Dear Brandi,
Just thought I'd give you a Mitsi Girl update. She is doing absolutely wonderful. She is so precious and knows it's all about her. She loves to ride in the car. She has quiet a vocabulary too. We are so happy with her. She still weighs around 4 pounds and is very healthy. She gets bathed every Wednesday and loves it. She also has clothes and she loves those too. She's our little Princess. Rick works out of our home so she's rarely left alone. She is a very spoiled little girl. Hope you guys are doing well.
Take care,

Greetings Brandi and Mike,
We bought "Tinkerbell" from you earlier this year and just wanted to let you know what a delightful little dog she is. We renamed her "Jenna" and at 15 months old, she weighs 5.2 pounds, has never ailed a day, and is chock-full of energy and life. She is an obsessive retriever of squeaky balls. She pushes the ball into your lap, or between your feet, and begs you to throw it for her, so she can bring it back...again...and again...and again...and again... She also plays with the ball by herself, dragging a towel across the room until it covers the ball, then pounding the ball through the towel with both front feet, stiff-legged, like a fox does when playing with his prey. She is VERY active and happy. Sweet, gentle, and polite with everyone. Bright, obedient, and well-behaved. We adore this wonderful little dog. Thank you for allowing us to share our lives with her.
All the best,
Ralph and Michele

Dear Brandi and Mike,
Last night Titus graduated from Basic Obedience - we did have a test - heeling, sitting, a 2 minute down -stay , and a few other things. All of the other dogs were older , some of them 3 years old - Titus was the STAR !! The instructor even used him as an example a few times. He loves everything and everybody. He goes with me almost everywhere and last Sunday I took him with me to an "Open House" that I held. He is so well behaved that it is not a problem. We will start a new class in a few weeks called Canine Good Citizen. We practices every day and when I say ready, ready, ready Titus knows that it is time to work. He is my Dream Dog! I love Halloween, and as you can see, Titus got right in the spirit of things. Hope you all are well.
Warm Regards,

Hi Brandi,
I so enjoy reading all that you are doing and watching your fabulous Braylor paps. Chrissie spent a month with my sister-in-law in Florida while we explored Italy, Greece and Turkey. She and her husband fell hopelessly in love with her. My sister-in-law, Crystal, says that Chrissie was the magic that changed her husband's opinions about small dogs. I added her latest photo with her favorite toy Quackie as we call it. She does love to sit in the sun. She looks a lot like her mom, but also her dad. She has a the beautiful coat that he has. She has been my constant companion except for September as I job search. We walk each day for a minimum of two miles and soon hope to be up to four miles. Hope that everyone is well.
Best,

Hi Brandi& Mike!
It’s been a while since I’ve sent a picture of Jazzy and said hi! We had a fun time just this past week at the annual “Papillon Play Date” that is done here in Atlanta! There were 60-70 Papillons at the event Saturday afternoon. She seemed to really enjoy being outside and you can see she is doing well and is as beautiful as ever. She probably had the best coat there (I know I am biased) but many had very short coats unlike Jazzy. She was also the best mannered. I put her in my lap at one point to give her a break in the shade and she just sat there watching the dogs not bothering with my food over her head. Meanwhile, other paps were trying to get to my plate from the other chairs next to me! Ha. She still does all her tricks, I think we are at 18-20. I’ve lost count. We go visit some of my Senior Adults that are homebound and brighten their days with our little floor show. Jazzy is still the best trained and most beautiful Papillon of them all – and I met a lot on Saturday! Thanks again for deciding that she would have a good home with me. She is well loved, well cared for, and very happy!
This is a picture of Jazzy on her finished “perch” we had built! She loves sunning and watching the squirrels in the back yard! Take care,

Hi Brandi,
Striker arrived safe & sound. He was a little overwhelmed at first. Andrea is really good at bringing pups around. We played for a while at Andrea's house. We were able to introduce Striker to Carmen(papillon) and Ambrose(ckcs), his new brother and sister. Everyone got along great. When we arrived home, I took the kennel out of the car, placed it on the ground and opened the door. Striker walked out and it was like he's lived here forever. He's sitting on my lap as I write this. He's a really beautiful dog. I know he's going to do great in agility but more importantly, he will be loved. I've attached some pictures.
Thank you so much.

Hi Brandi,
Happy Birthday wishes to Rigby. It's hard to believe Venus & Rigby are 2 years old today. I went back and looked at their baby puppy pics today......too cute. I took some birthday pix today of Venus playing in the backyard on the practice agility course. My husband got energized last weekend and made a teeter & ramps for the dog walk. Of all the obstacles, the dog walk is her very favorite. She can go up, across, & down it all day long. I get tired & have to say lets quit girl...I need a break. The pix are of Venus practicing on the obstacles, plus one of her kissing her eldest sister, an 11 yr old English Setter who is going blind from glaucoma. Venus seems to understand this, and has become sort of her guide dog and helps her get around the backyard without bumping into things. Braylor's Papillons are amazing and I am so proud to be owned by one.

Hi Brandi,
Here are some pics of my little Remy with a pumpkin for the Fall and for his 2nd b-day! He is doing really well in class (both obedience and agility) and will be starting a new agility class soon. He is just so smart and so fun to train! He can almost weave already (he is still a beginner, hehe, but I am teaching him at home). I did not need to inflict the polo shirt costume on him like last year (it was cute, though!)- - he no longer needs to be 'swaddled' to help him hold a nice stay while I fumble with the camera, so he got to stand like the little man he is!! Now when it gets cold I do have some darling sweaters, however. . .

Hi Brandi,
I just wanted to send you the pics of Riyo and his favorite bag. He loves his bag! I like to go to Starbucks and sit outside and he'll just sit in his bag and look around, or take a nap. He is so good about just hanging out in his chair with me. He doesn't leave the bag! I might be biased, but I think he is the cutest puppy ever!

Hi Brandi,
I haven't touched base in awhile... just wanted to let you know Scout is doing great. He turned 3 years old this September. Scout's going to start agility soon and I'm sure he'll take to that well. He's even more beautiful now at 3 years old. His coat is quite long and if he weren't so into playing with his girls, his ear fringe would be lovely too! Hope everything is going well with you guys.

Thanks, Colleen

Dear Brandi and Mike,
Yesterday was the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi and we always have a blessing of the animals at our Church. This year we had a huge turnout with cats, dogs and even a giant tortoise. Titus really enjoyed seeing all the other pets and of course being admired by all the humans. He is the most willing of companions - always eager to go places and see new things. Here is a photo of Titus being blessed. We feel very blessed to have Titus! Tonight we start our group classes in obedience . Will keep you posted.

Brandi and Mike,
I just had to write to tell you that my family is so in LOVE with our little puppy!! We have named her Faith! She is very happy to be part of the family. She is very vivacious, smart, and loving! My toy poodle 'put up' with her for the first couple of weeks....but now, they are great friends! Faith chases Isabella around, which gives them both excercise, and Bella acts like a protective 'mom' to Faith. Thank you for letting us take home this precious little, 'gremlin' girl! We LOVE her!!! (everyone that sees her, loves her!) I'll send ya a couple more pics when she's full grown. Take care!

Good Morning:
I think of you often as we adore and enjoy our little girl Shmooli (Ghost). She is such a joy and is the center of home. She is the boss of our 3 other dogs and any worry about having her around a German Shepherd and the 2 corgis seems silly now. They all play, sleep, eat, bark, and walk together as if they came from the same litter. Shmooli comes to school with me on Fridays and is adored by 863 girls here on campus. Shmooli is the in the yearbook in her own picture and as a member of several organizations...she is very popular. I have included a few pictures. She is very pretty with a lovely coat. The little students think she feels like cotton candy!
Thank you for her.

Hi Brandi & Mike,
I hadn't checked in in a while and I thought you'd like to hear how the little guy is doing. I absolutely LOVE him. He's my best buddy! He's never much more than two feet away from me, unless he's getting into trouble! :) I adopted our family dog who joined us about a month ago. They are doing very well together. The big girl is very patient and gentle. She basically snoozes as Riyo runs around her. Riyo has also gone on a couple business trips with me. He spent three days in the office up in Arkansas and is now known as the "mascot." I attached one picture of him showcasing a new product. He's such a good companion and travel buddy. He really goes everywhere with me. He has what I call his "super stealth" dog carrier. He goes to restaurants and no one ever knows he's there. He's so quiet and he just loves going anywhere. I don't know if all Papillons are like this, but he is just a little cuddle bunny! Riyo also still amazes everyone with his athleticism. He's all of 3.5lbs now, but can go for miles. I need to find a new agility class to go to. He learned everything so fast, the class was actually way too slow moving for him. Anyway, I will keep sending updates, although he will look just as cute everytime!

Brandi & Mike,
We got home without any issues. He sleeps in the car and was not worried about his kennel. When we got home he found out that laps are definately his. He sits on my husband's lap and watches TV and then goes to see my son and watches the computer screen. He slept with my son on Sunday and Monday night. He is running around the house now and is using the dog pads I have on the floor. Funny thing is that a cat that normally stays outside came in the house when it was raining yesterday and he ran up to her and barked! His tail is almost always up now. I put him on the groming table last night and brushed him and he was very well behaved. He is going to be fine! He loves to follow my husband around. I'll send you pictures of him!

Hi Brandi & Mike,
Titus is the Greatest ! He is learning almost too fast for me. He is very eager every morning to start working and barks until I put him through his paces. He has "sit" and "down "perfectly and we are working on duration , he is pretty good at "come" and "drop" - "uppy up" means go up the stairs - he loves that. We have set up a small jump and incline and he is learning to go to the target. We are still doing private lessons once a week, but will start with group lessons on Mon. and Wed. at the end of Sept. I believe he was born to do agility - I am so proud of him. My daughter has left for Boston [she is a freshman in college ] and it has left a bit of an empty spot in my heart. Thank goodness for Titus - he and I are best buddies ! He is completely house trained. I don't think he has gone through that akward stage with his coat yet, at least I have not noticed . His coat seems fluffier than the adult pappilons that I see here in Sarasota - sadly, none of them compare to him - he has the most beautiful face of any that I have seen !!! Hope you are having a great summer. We will keep in touch.

Warm Regards,

Hi Brandi,
Desi is doing very very good in his agility training and his title would be PinT - Puppy in Training. Desi got to go on the boat today with 2 other Papillons, Joule and Astro. We go to a private beach near my Mother's house that is only assesible by boat and the dogs have such a good time. This is the first time Desi went and he was swimming after 10 minutes. I've attached some photos taken today.

Hi again B,
Trek brought home his first jumpers Q today in AKC agility. In true Trekker style, he stole the show in Jumpers. He had the crowd awed - and me too. I came off the course to people going - OMG! He's amazing! Could he be faster!!! What a pup! All I could say was, "I know! Isn't he something!!!" Then the timer wings past to tell me his time - not a normal occurance mind you. Our little Braylor's darling ran a 100 yard Jumpers with Weaves course in 20.90 seconds! Standard Course time was 40! Needless to say - it was a 1st placement right!

Hi B,
Trekker was awesome again at the CPE trail in Cornell, IL - yes, he out Q'd the Border Collie yet again!!!!!!!!!! He earned 4 of 6 required legs in Level 3 Standard and Q'd in Level 5 Fullhouse - he was on fire until the POURING POURING POURING RAIN STORM. It was an absolute laugh riot. He was all geared up to go until the 4th obstacle and the skies really just opened - it was like a full blown water faucet opened. The rain soaked him so bad you couldn't see fringe on his ears - you could see pink skin....and he ducked into a tunnel, turned and looked back at me and barked - "Screw that! I've got room in here for ya, ma - but that's just nutz!" I kid you not he moved over to the side of the tunnel and gave me a look like his next move was going to be to pat the spot he just made for me next to him in the tunnel. We just rolled! What a dog!

Hi Brandi,
We went on a camping trip in Colorado and took Robby with us. You should have seen him posing at every rock to have his picture taken. "Look at me! I'm so cute!"

Hi Brandi,
It's been a while since writing. I wanted to let you know that our sweet adorable Brandee Corina is doing really well. She has completed puppy kindergarten and will soon begin working on her Canine Good Citizen Certification. She has also been spayed - so we will be sending you the required paperwork so that we can get her registration. We will soon be looking for a brother or sisiter for our little darling and of course want to work with you. Do you recommend having two girl dogs over having a boy/girl combination? We have a friend who is also interested in a tiny girl as well - so please keep us in mind. Brandee is currently at 4.4lbs....not sure that she will get to be much bigger....but bigger is not always best...I have never seen a more beautiful dog as our sweetheart. I have FINALLY figured out some important camera technics and can send you some of the lastest pics of our little girl. Her favorite past time is currently a nice long game of frisbee - I honestly think she could play this game all day long! Anyway - I think you will agree - she is certainly a beauty! BTW - will you be at the Houston Dog Show next week? We would love to meet you in person and see some of your beauties! Best Regards, Claudia

Brandi and Mike,
It is hard to believe that we ever lived without Titus - he has endeared himself to everyone ! I have been keeping him in the kitchen when we are not home, I take him out frequently and he has his litter box in the kitchen. Attached a few pictures. I am starting private obedience classes on Monday with a lady who trains papillons in Agility. We will both learn together. Thanks for everything!!

Hello Brandi,
It’s been a while, but we think of you so often. I know all your paps are angels, but I had to send this pix I caught of Roofuss when she was playing in the back yard—something heavenly about how the sunlight fell on her. She continues to be an absolute JOY!

Hi Brandi,
Mitsi is just awesome. She's precious and knows how much we love her. When we're home everything is centered around her. She's adorable. We went to the vet week before last for her shots and check-up. She's doing great. Rick works out of our home so he's with her all day. The day we got her from you we went straight to Pet's Mart and got her a little round bed. It sits to the left of Rick's recliner in his office. That is her safe haven. I also bought a pink blanket so during the day the blanket stays in her bed and then at night when we go to bed I spread it out between us and she lays on it. She knows the word 'pink blankie'. She's spoiled rotten to say the least. I can't get over how sweet her little disposition is. Everyday when I come home she and I go out to the mailbox to get the mail. She loves running in the front yard and doing a figure eight around the two trees. She doesn't run off and minds me well. I'm so thankful we found her and please don't worry about her - she has a wonderful loving home. Oh, and the potty training was very easy - no problem in that area. :) Take care and we'll send you an updated photo soon.

Hello! I purchased a puppy from you on 9/9/06 named Little John, but my husband and I call him Radar, or Ray for short. He is now a healthy 7.8 lbs, and has been a wonderful addition to our family. (Attached is a picture of him with one of our 5 cats. Boy does he love cats!)

Hi Brandi,
I will be putting an envelope in the mail to you with 2 CD's of some really nice agility photos of Dallas and some portrait photos of Desi and Dallas. Dallas is now known as Braylor's Urban Legend - NF, NA, NAJ, OA, OAJ, AX, AXJ. Desi's training is coming along so well. He is such an enthusiastic student and learns so quickly. I can't stop kissing him.

Hi Brandi & Mike,
I wanted to share the newest picture of Louie. He is all grown up. Since all our kids have left for College, he is the king of the house. He is such a cute little guy. We love him lots! He is very active and runs around all day. He likes to eat and sometimes I wonder where he puts it all. Even after being fixed he is slim and trim. He weights only 4.5 pounds and the vet says that’s fine for him. Thanks again for sending him to us.

Sincerely,
Elke

Brandi,
I thought you might like to see some pictures. Tika is getting her big girl coat now and is growing into a beautiful little girl. EVERYONE who sees her wants to pet her and I get lots of questions. We are a BIG hit at the pet stores. She has graduated from puppy class and is currently attending basic obedience. She is learning quickly and seems to enjoy the classes, especially the limited amount of agility included in each class. She got the weave poles the first time and the tunnel didn't stop her at all. I'll keep you updated on her doings. Will you be attending a show near Belton anytime soon? If so, I'll bring her to see you.

Hi Brandi,
Things happen quickly around here and Dallas now has an AXJ (Excellent A Jumper) agility title, which he earned this last weekend in Massachsetts and an AX (Excellent A Standard) which he earned this weekend in New Jersey. He is now in the highest AKC class which is Excellent B for both Jumper and Standard.

Have a Great Day,

Hi Brandi,
Chrissie passed her Pet Therapy test with flying colors last night. We now will go for three training periods beginning within three weeks. Then, we will meet with the site handler for a final okay, do a group visit, and then solo or group visits whichever we prefer. Attached are pics of Chrissie with her Fairfax Pets on Wheels bandana. We even have a photo id badge and laggard.

All the best,

Hi Brandi,
Hope you had a good weekend. Ours was soooooooooo hot and humid. Our agility class is going great. There are 5 large breed dogs, a fox terrier and Venus in the class. She's doing so well that some class participants told me she shouldn't be in this intro class, but intermediate. I didn't bother to explain she hasn't had any formal agility training. Our instructor loves Venus (she has small dogs) and told them that she would use her as an example to show how to do the obstacles. I was sort of embarrassed, but then reminded myself we are here for fun, fun, fun. Venus is laying on my husband's lap sleeping very contently while he watches the Spurs play. He is loving it.

More later,

Hi Brandi,
Wyatt is adjusting well to Georgia, and his new friend, Walter Kitty (who chases him until they both drop!!). I am sending new pix for the testimonial page - one in his Strut Your Mutt "cape" bandana - a benefit for the local humane society. He had his first ocean experience when we (and Winnie - the Boston) went to Tybee Island. He really enjoyed it, and he had a nice sink bath afterwards.

Take care,

Hi Brandi,
It has been a while since Chrissie has updated you on herself and her family. My hair is growing in very well. My tail is really long and flowing. On Saturday, I entered my first K-9 2K for the 2007 Herndon Festival. The profits benefited Hope Veterinary Research. I am attaching a picture with my bandana. I need to talk to the organizers about making some of these fit us little gals better. Mom folded it over and over, so that I could wear it. The other news about me is that we are going to be tested for temperament (both Mom and me) to see if we can start training to become part of the pet therapy program called Fairfax Pets on Wheels. It is a nonprofit and both Mom and I think we would be able to help a lot of people. Wish us luck. guy.

Hi Brandi,
Did you all get rained out last week? Yesterday the sun came out so I was finally able to take some new action shots of Venus. After bathing all the mud off I got her to sit still just long enough to pose for some obedience shots. Hope the pic are of a high enough quality. Let me know and I can resend in another format.
Happy summer to you, Mike & all your Braylor kids.

Hi Brandi,
I just wanted to give you an update on Rocket, now called Riyo. I have found that he is quite the athlete! I’m telling you, if dogs laugh, he was laughing at me today trying to run. I was huffing and puffing, needing breaks, and he was jumping up and down…LAUGHING I tell you, and egging me on for a sprint…which he absolutely out-did me on. He has definitely become my best buddy. He works very hard with me, as you saw, and he goes everywhere. He jumps into his carry bag and is always ready to go. He’s a little shy sometimes, but I think that’ll work itself out. His stitches came out just fine and he’s eating really well. Anyway, I attached a couple of pics my dad took when he visited. Riyo was sitting in his own chair at the dinner table, very politely. Thanks for a beautiful puppy!

Hi Brandi,
Desi is doing great!! I can't stop kissing him but I was able to long enough to introduce him to the seesaw and the dogwalk. As with all pups he was unsure at first but in the traditional Braylor Papillon style he was running from one end to the other by the third try with lots of rewards at the other end. That's what I love about your pups..................they get over their fears so quickly. Like in 5 minutes. I am attaching some photos of Dallas and Desi.

Hi Brandi,
Finally I have a few minutes to list my pretty boy's titles. He earned a: Novice Agility NA Novice Agility Jumper NJ Open Agility OA Open Agility Jumper OAJ and is now working on his Excellent titles and will soon be earning points towards his MACH (the highest agility title given by the AKC). He only needs one more qualifiying score in Excellent Jumper for that title. These titles are all AKC. Dallas earned all these titles in just a few short months of trials and we didn't even have a trial every weekend. I have some really incredible pictures that I will send you on a CD as soon as I receive them. Will be a few weeks. I will also send you a link to all the photo websites that he is on.

Jim, Winston and I are so excited about the news of Carrie's next litter. Truly good news. I hope there are no problems with Carrie or the litter. And that all survive in good health. I can hardly wait to hear more details, and hopefully see pictures. Winston wants to put them in his album. We are happy, happy about little Monkey's success and all of your Paps, of course. We really enjoy watching your successes through the chat group and on your Website. It has been so much fun for us. I can't even begin to tell you. And you know we just love our little boy to a distraction. I know we sound crazy. But........can't help it. :-) Here's Winston in our garden. Will be talking to ya.

Brandi,
This is Remy's favorite chair (my computer chair). He is really learning his stays for posing, too!!! Soon there will be no more candids, lol, only striking poses. I am trying to teach the boys to help unload the dryer since they love socks so much. Oh- - the most impressive to me- - I was working on "laundry" with both my boys, each one taking a turn, the one not working waiting behind a baby gate. Well, no more whining from Mr Remy- - He put himself in a down wait and watched quietly with his big, bright, intelligent, eager eyes until Dom had finished his turn. Now this is clicker training, great goodies involved, so this waiting one's turn thing is usually rather tumultuous as the one waiting wants to be having his turn too. I cannot wait to post a pic of him unloading the dryer. I don't mind the chores as much - the boys get SO excited at laundry activity it seems like a joyful affair. Too fun.

Dear Brandi and Mike,
Here are some updated pictues of Brodie and Frasier, who are now fast friends! Frasier is almost five pounds, and the growing has seemed to level off over the past month. In February, he grew!!! He is in that gawky, pre-teen stage -- but his fur is growing out very silky. He now walks beautifully on the walks every night (he mastered the stairs, up and down, on the first try). He knows sit, down(this was a hard one for him), drop it. We are working on come! Potty training is pretty much done, he is no longer gated in the kitchen during the day when we are gone. We just doggy proofed for wiring, he doesn't chew on furniture (anymore.....LOL) For awhile his left eye was very watery and drained to stain (of course) the white side -- we started giving him the supplimental vitamin that you suggested for Brodie (with the garlic,brewers yeast and omega-3). Now as you can see in the picture, he has no drainage and the white is crystal clear around his eye! They are both a joy, thanks for sharing!!!

Today is Slider's 1st birthday today! We celebrated by having a cake made. I will post the pics, you will notice that the cake says happy birthday vinny. Thats what my nephew insists on calling him, so we did it as a joke for him :) We just say that Sliders middle name is "Vinny". They all sure had fun with it!

I thought I would send the latest picture of little Meesha. She is a loving pup and we are enjoying her tremendously. She has a basket full of toys and has taken to "stalking" them when we play with her. She also has a monkey toy that is her baby. She will not go to bed at night without cleaning his face and carrying him to her bed. She actually tucks him in and then lays down beside him for the night. Thank you so much for letting this sweet little lady come into our home. I still would like to get another one, but I have to talk my husband into it. He thinks one Papillon is enough. Not me! They are like a "lays potato chip". You can't have just one. Warm regards to your family,

Hi!
I put new pictures of Remy up today. One shows Remy practicing his wait in front of a jump! And doing it very, very well! He is in a stage where he has it all figured out, thank you very much (I love it!). In class last week I was very loosely holding his lead (OK, obviously barely) as we all listened to instructions well spaced out in front of our own jumps. Well, Rem had practiced this exercise (where they learn to wrap around the pole) and went ahead and started without me when the instructions lasted too long, lolol, we already knew what to do, after all. He performed a perfectly executed wrap around and positioned his head for a treat in front of an imaginary me :)Then put on the happy face! Remy is really, really wonderful and growing up into such a gentleman!

Hi!
Well, we got home at 9 p.m. He slept great last night and never cried. I put him next to my side of the bed in his carrier. He was a happy clam. He woke me up at 1:30 a.m. when I heard him eating his food. I have been up with Tanner and Dusty since 5:15 a.m. I sat on the floor with the two of them for 45 minutes. Tanner is SO curious about Dusty. They have rubbed noses and sniffed each other well. And our big break through came at 6:15 a.m. when Tanner finally went potty outside. He has not been since we got home. Goodness, he had to go! We praised him a lot. He is now sleeping on my lap as I type this. The kids are still asleep but love him dearly already. I told the kids I can see how it would be very easy to have many of these precious dogs around. Have a joyous day. Thanks for everything. It was nice meeting you.

Hi Brandi!
I wanted to let you know Slider had his first rally class last night. He did awesome with Mallory! It was his first time in a group setting outdoors and it didn't even seem phase him. He made great eye contact with her during the heeling exercizes, and picked up on the new behaviors quite quickly. This is a 4 week class he is going through, and we are hoping to enter him in novice at a show coming up next month, and Mallory is going to enter Jolie in the advanced rally as well.
I'll keep you updated!

Hi Brandi!
How are you doing? Any pups you are raising right now? If I had my wish I would be at home with 3-4 Papillons every day – I love my Jazzy! I don’t think I’ve written in a while – Jazzy is still doing great! She did add on a pound since I’ve gotten her, now at 5.8, but I think that filled her out a bit and she is staying trim with our daily walks and runs. We keep adding tricks to her list of accomplishments as she is just so SMART! I work with Senior Adults and Jazzy and I get a number of invites just to have Jazzy do her floor show! Smile. Everyone gets so tickled at how cute she is and how much she understands and it gives some of our Homebound seniors an extra smile for the day. The challenge now is to decide on a new trick to teach her that it worth her learning! Usually she learns the easy ones in a week or two and we fine tune it to voice or sign recognition in the weeks following. She now knows: SIT, STAY, STOP, DOWN, CRAWL, ROLL OVER, SLEEP, SHAKE, WAVE or HIGH FIVE, SAY PLEASE, TAKE A BOX, STAND (regular all 4’s after something else), BACK and COME combinations, THROUGH (figure 8 through my legs), BACK THROUGH (backwards), JUMP, STAY till I release her to a treat, UP (stand on back legs and walk), SPIN (she goes counterclock-wise on 1 axis), CIRCLE (walk clockwise). I still keep her off the furniture unless she is invited and she has kept to the wonderful training you did to make her a well mannered Papillon! Thanks again! People are constantly amazed at how quickly Jazzy learns, how well-mannered she is, and how quiet she is, and of course how beautiful and tiny she is!
Take Care,
Susan

We had a delightful 24 hours with our grandchildren in Chesapeake, VA. I was concentrating on the baby when I heard my granddaughter Kate say, "Gramma, Chrissie loves the Hummer!"

Jolie and I had our first day of our USDAA (agility) trial today. She qualified with a time of 64.82 seconds, with 90 seconds allowed, and she did that even getting a 5 second penalty for not taking the tire the first time. She also got second place!!! I was so proud of her!! She was much more focused today, much quicker, and really enjoying herself!! I will post some pics of her, wish us luck for tomorrow!

Hi All,
Just wanting to wish everyone a nice V day. My husband grilled me some filet mignon and got me the cutest little > stuffed papillon from Hallmark. It's very cute, It's black and white, the body and tail being white, and the ears and mask are black. The tail is fuzzy, and the ears are halarious, because they are really fuzzy! It came in a little doggie purse. I think this particular one was a valentines day special. I myself have never seen a stuffed pap until I got this one. Jolie Says hi!

Hi Brandi,
I realized it's been a while since I sent you photos of Dallas and here are some I just took. He is just starting to enter into the world of agility competition and his very first class he got a 2nd place and was only 2 seconds behind a dog that competes on the world team. I think he has a very bright future ahead of him as long as I can keep up! We have several trials coming up very soon. He is absolutely the love of my life. Let me know if you can't view the pictures and I will send them as attachments instead and please excuse his hair sticking out all over.........we were having a bad day with static.

Hi,
I'll be dropping some pictures of Max and Atom in the mail for you this week. I tried getting a few pictures of them playing together, but Atom isn't a very cooperative model: every time he sees me with the camera, he stops playing with Max and comes to play with the camera. I'll keep trying and maybe I'll have better luck with the next set of pictures. The weather here has been pretty warm and today, for the first time, I took Atom out with Max to a local walking trail. I put Atom in the car seat with Max that Max usually has all to himself and Max didn't object a bit. They eat and drink out of the same bowls at the same time and there is never any fighting while they're eating. I just want to let you know that the match is really working well and that Atom is doing fine. There is one picture that I'm sending where Atom is looking to his left and lying in front of a green and white rope pull toy that I can see a lot of Max in him. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I'll try to keep you updated on a monthly basis as Atom develops. I'm very happy to have him.

Hey,
I attached some more photos, hopefully you can open them. I took some more yesterday as Fraiser's ears are standing up all the way now. Potty training is going great. Frasier and Brodie are starting to play a lot, but the energy between them is still all excitement; eventually I think they will relax around each other. He (frasier) is SOOOOOO smart, WOW!
Anyway, I'll send you some more pics later,

Hello,
The Saints did not make the Super Bowl, but Remy is ready for next season!!
I am actually not such a football fan but it was fun when the New Orleans Saints actually got into the play offs. I got the shirt in anticipation of getting some photos for next season- - could make cute cards/invitations to parties. I still need a football for Rem rather than the baseball to get the shot!

Dear Brandi and Mike,
The trip home was killer because of the rain and the timing of houston traffic @ 5pm Whee! Anyways, Frasier travels great! Brodie did pretty good too! Frasier slept through the first night without a peep. The crate we have is big enough that his litter box fits one side, and just room to squeeze a bed on the other. We had nice firm poopies in the box the next morning. All in all, very well potty trained for so small; he really came out of his shell last night and today. Last night he figured out where he was in relation to the rest of the pack and whined and howled a bit after lights out. He quickly figured out we were not going to respond and went right to sleep! He and Brodie are in the tush smelling, chasing phase. I think very soon they will become good friends. Daffy (the cat) could really care less, but we are making sure that he doesn't get the opportunity to test his limits with her until he is much bigger. He has already figured out the "come" command, the "go potty" command. Such a smart cookie! I will send update pictures soon, Thank you again for the little one! P.S. Brodie's feet look awesome, thanks for the trimming lesson!!!! I am ordering the scissors this weekend!

I just wanted to let you know that Meessha is doing great. She is adapting well and loves her people. We are hoping to start beginning obedience training soon. We are enjoying her tremendously. She is definitely coming out of her shell. In the mornings, she goes outside and comes back in after doing her business and gets the "zoomies". She knows when I'm leaving in the morning and wants to go to. She has taken over the blue recliner. It is her throne. I have attached a picture for you. I hope your show in Abilene went well. Thanks again for all your help. You would please keep me in mind for an retiring adult. I would like Meesha to have a buddy.

Warm regards, Kalena

Hi Brandi,
Slider is the best little dog EVER!!! He is so well adjusted and easy going. Whatever you ask of him, he gives. He is so smart, for a 10 month old puppy he amazes me!! Mallory said she sent you pictures we took this weekend at the show, as you can see he is beautiful. I couldn't be any happier with him. You certainly know how to match your dogs to people. Thanks for picking me to be Sliders mommy!! I LOVE HIM, I ADORE HIM!!!!

Hi,
Atom had his final shots today and the vet said it's OK to start taking him to public places. He weighed in at 3 pounds 11 ounces; he has a very good appetite and drinks well. Max was in for his rabies shot and a check-up and he weighed in at just under 9 pounds. They're getting along very well but there's not much peace in the house when I let them out of their pens. They never seem to tire of chasing each other around the house. Atom is a great match for Max and he's often the aggressor when they play. He likes to eat and drink out of Max's bowls and Max doesn't mind at all. He also plays with Max's toys without any negative reaction from Max. I think Max is very happy to have him around, and I am too; he's a great joy to be around. I picked up a disposable camera and I'll be taking pictures as the months go by and I promise to send photos of Atom as he grows; he gets cuter by the week and he seems to have adjusted well to his new surroundings. I just want to let you know that it appears as if Max and Atom are going to be good friends for a long time to come and that I'm very happy with the new addition to the household.

Hi Brandi,
Congrats on your latest accomplishments! Our club from before the Hurricane finally found a place near us for agility classes (8 minutes away instead of the 55 minutes we have been doing- - most of that trip is over a 21 mile bridge too, can be scary)- - the weather has been so bad we have been trying since before Christmas and Remy has still not had a class. Dom has managed two, his is on a different day- - that Chi has gotten good finally! I think he will enter his first competition in March! Rem does come to watch the advanced classes- at least he can see what to expect later. Poor baby wants to be out there playing too already. I make sure to let him squeeze a few things in when he goes. I keep joking that Remy will not be a beginner anymore by the time his beginner classes start. We have been working at home for a while now! I have attached some pictures of him on his new contact trainer.

Brandi,
I hope you and your family and a terrific Christmas and New Year's. We stayed in San Antonio and had a nice quiet vacation at home. Our CGC test was today and VENUS PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This past week we did some serious training. I was confident about everything except the Sit & Stay in Place while I leave her and walk to the end of the 20 foot leash and back then turn and leave her again while I go 10 feet and cross my fingers that she'll stay in place until I call her. SHE DID IT. This was a BIG achievement on her part because she is always right at my feet and moves wherever I move. Thank you for all your encouragement and advice and thank you for trusting us to raise this little sweetheart. She does shine like a star-like her name says.

Brandi,
Mitsi is something else. Very intelligent! I think that is why she is a daddy’s girl, but she goes crazy when Denise gets home. She looks forward to seeing Denise return home each day from work and moves like a “Tasmanian Devil” when Denise steps in the house. She is one of the fastest little dogs I have ever seen. She is so light on her feet that it is as though she is a “ghost”; one minute she is there and the next she is gone. I can go outside with her, open the door to go in, turn around to say come on Misti, get in, turn around and she is staring at me looking as though she is thinking, “Hey I am waiting. What’s the hold up on the treat?” She likes to sit on the back of the couch in my office looking outside. She has really settled in and is a big part of our lives. She really gets a lot of attention everywhere we take her, especially when Denise has her in a big bag in the department store and those two “big hairy ears” pop out. We’ll keep you posted.

Hi Brandi,
Happy New Year and I hope you all are doing well. I just had to give you a Mitsi report. She is doing wonderful. She's adapted nicely and is definitely a mama's baby. She loves Rick but doesn't like to get out of my sight. She's so cute and sweet. We are really enjoying her.

Take care,
Denise

Dear Brandi,
I know I am late, but here is Chrissie's birthday picture in front of the Christmas tree. She certainly did get the loot. The neighborhood children as well as our grandchildren, sisters, mothers, brothers, all gave her toys, beds, clothing. She is so underprivileged. We love her more each moment and cannot wait to come home to her.

Happy New Year,
Kathy

Dear Brandi & Mike,
I am sorry it has taken me so long to write. Ghost whom we call Shmooli is wonderful. It seems as if she has always been with us. The other dogs were very careful with her when she first arrived in our home. Now they all play together with ease and really enjoy each others company. When Shmooli and I get home from school each day the dogs all greet one another as if they have been apart for years. Very sweet to see them all so attached. Our daughters all love Shmooli too and give her quite a bit of attention. I don’t think her feet touched the ground the first few weeks after we got her. Thank you for letting Shmooli join our family...she is a perfect joy! I have attached some pictures so you can see how beautiful she is.

Take care and have a Happy, Healthy New Year,
David and Judy
