Hi Brandi,
Another year has gone by and Keegan is still amazing me. In July at Revolution Flyball's Christmas in July tournament Keegan earned his FDCH (Flyball Dog Champion). In August at Salisbury MD KC's AKC atility trial he earned his OAJ (Open Jumpers). November was a very busy month for our boy. At Revolution Flyball's Viva Las Flyball tournament he earned his FDCH-S (Flyball Dog Champion Silver) and at LC/DCKC's AKC agility trial he earned his OA (Open Standard). Keegan likes agility and loves flyball but more importantly he loves to be loved and I do love him so. Thank you for my wonderful boy.

Hope you have a happy and healthy new year.

Hi Brandi,
Mia is doing fabulous and is enjoying the Christmas break and all that comes with it- SNOW! We got over a foot the other day and it's still not gone yet. Mia thinks snow is the best thing ever and would probably stay outside all day if I let her, digging in the snow and bouncing around like a bunny. She's a real character, very feisty and so smart. She is very sweet though too and becoming quite the Mama's girl. She is getting so pretty too, her coat is really coming in lately and she's starting to look like a big girl. She has also discovered squirrels and is determined to catch one one day. So far no luck though. ;) She got spayed yesterday and was just pathetic as can be but today she's up and back to her wild ways. I'm going to have fun keeping her quiet these next few days! She is just the best dog and is everything I wanted and more. She really does brighten my days.

Brandi,
Chrissie was on the road traveling to our grandchilren's home in Chesapeake. On Chrissie's birthday, we shared the photos of her when she was born with the grandkids and the pictures of her mom and dad. They thought that was amazing. Whatever you did, you certainly imprinted her with love. It is what she is all about. We all thank you.
Merry Christmas!
Love, Chrissie, Kathy and Chuck

Here's the tunnel video from Blast's training.

Laura

12-12-09

Brandi-
Blast is doing great! He knows how to sit and is getting better at down and switch. He knows tunnel and can do a very short chute. He thinks the Aframe is the best place to lay on top of and rip up leaves and the seesaw is fun to bounce off of. He is a never ending ball of energy, I better start going to the gym again just to keep up. He has officially claimed Joule's purple striped bed as his own. Of course, he also owns all the toys in the house. Every day he empties the toy basket, now if I could only teach him to put them away. Currently on Long Island there are 3 other papillon/phalene puppies all born in August. He is the youngest, but the biggest. We call him stilts. But being big right now is paying off, b/c he fits in all of Joule's coats. Eventually he can upgrade to Astro's gear:) But seriously, it is so nice for him to play with other puppies. We try to get together 2 times a week. As soon as Nancy gives me the video of the playdate from Saturday I will send it to you. I included a picture of Blast with Desi and Dallas too. I'm also attaching a tunnel video from his training. Thanks again for a wonderful dog. He is everything I expected him to be and more.

Kinsey at her new home. She hasn’t had a bath yet, I’m trying to let her get settled. When she gets registered her name is a little unconventional but it will be “Braylor’s Hope, Faith, and Joy She was born on my granddaughter hope’s birthday, Faith to honor my deceased husband, and Joy in memory of an Afhgan Hound. She is a delight!

Hello Braylor's,
It has been five years since we purchased our adorable Lola. She is now working as a therapy dog here in Huntsville. We are members of Huntsville Pets Helping People/Delta Society. We will send some photos of her in her offiicial scarf etc. She is a huge hit at Huntsville Memorial Hermann Hospital and Huntsville Healthcare geriatric center. Last year we had to put down our wonderful lab Angel and most recently our 14 year old cat Fluffy had total renal failure and passed away. We now think we would like another puppy. We just have Lola and our chihuahua Foxy who is twelve. We would like a dog smaller than Lola who is eight pounds. I prefer the Tri coloring. We have always had female pets but I think a male would be fine.The puppy would be a lap dog, get lots of attention and be pretty spoiled. We are in no rush to get the dog. We want to make sure we find just the right one. Please let us know if you can help us. Lola is such a special dog it is hard to imagine we can find another with her charm and personality! Have a wonderful holiday! We look forward to hearing from you,
Elayne

Brandi & Mike,
I apoligize for not keeping in touch about Julie. She is doing very well and adapting very nicely, she is being spoiled rotten, and sleeps between Patti and myself each night, although for a small dog she certainly is comfortable in taking up her third of the bed. We had a few potti accidents in the house, buts that to be expected with us getting used to her, and her adapting to us, plus I don't think she cares for going outside when its cold. Thank You so much for sending this little sweetheart to us.

John

Julie is doing great, she is such an angel. She fell in love with John at the on set and spends every moment she can with him. They are quite a pair ;-). I took her to his office to meet everyone and of course she was fused over and praised. I am attaching a photo of her from this morning, she was helping me read the news so I thought I would stop and let her pose. Thank you for letting us bring Julie into our family, we couldn't be happier.

Hi Brandi,
Not sure if you remember us or not. Back in 2000 my daughter saved up all her pennies to help buy "Penny", hence the name. Oh…Penny is a little brat dog…rules the whole darn house. If that dog aint happy nobody’s happy. She is spoiled and won’t walk on the leash anymore since we started taking her on the golf cart. She goes into the garage and hops onto the golf cart and sits until we take her for a ride. We call her Princess Penny!!!

Hi Brandi,
I am soooo sorry I have not emailed an update in so long. I ended up having to be out of the country (for 2 months . . . ) this summer. Remy stayed with his Papa and did just great (though he is a Mama's boy, hehe). He was too funny- - I would video call on Skype and I could see him stealing socks from the laundry basket and bouncing around on the coffee table behind my husband's back!! I have been VERY busy as I ended up getting a tenure track position after all at the University of New Orleans. We took the boys with us to Lafayette this last weekend, and they had a great time. Remy was a pure joy- - enthusiastic, good traveler (no more drooling, must have been a baby thing), he just had a great time. I am attaching a picture of Rem and brother Dom in front of the great house on Jefferson Island (New Iberia, La.), and one of me and the boys by a lake. Still working on the photography too but these are just family snapshots!! I love the one of the boys in front of the house- - really shows their personalities- - Dom takes it upon himself to "protect" all of us from everything and everyone- - Rem lets him do that and just enjoys his little self!!
Take care,

Hi Brandi,
I hope you guys are doing well. I just had to send you this sweet picture of Mitsi. She insisted she try on her new scarf and leg warmers. As you can see she's getting all ready for winter. Isn't she a Fashion Statement. We are having so much fun with her. I can't believe we've had her for 4 years. She is such a sweet little lady and soooo very smart. Take care and thanks again for raising such wonderful healthy Papillions.

Hi Brandi,
Lily and Violet have a little competition going, but they do wrestle and play. Lily does have the very bad habit of going for Violet's extra big ears when it gets competitive. Should I worry about that? I will often pick Violet up to get Lily to stop. Lily has such a big personality - if she were a guy she would one of those macho types with a swagger. She and Tango have a wonderful time - and she loves the Cavaliers. In fact, Gracie adores Lily and follows her around. Lily still digs, but I'm sure that is something that will always be one of her favorite things to do. She is better since Violet came on the scene and wears out playing with Violet instead of me. You would not believe the potholes in my yard. And the monkey grass clumps are only stubs. Hope all is well with you and Mike.
Take care,

Brandi,
Just want to let you know we did go to the vet this morning. Spay incision site is a tiny bit red, but with the stitches out it will be okay.
She was the doll of the office. Most everyone knew Jewel so they very much wanted to meet our new baby. As boisterous as she is inside she is quiet when out. Her weight was 5.4. She has made us laugh, she's just the medicine we need.
good choice,
thanks,

Brandi,
She is here. She did come out of the crate kissing. She was so glad to hear her name the tail wagged and she rolled around in the bedding. She is in her crate eating, drinking, barking and growling at Miley and Harry. Miley can not believe we brought another dog into the house.
I am going to have plenty to distract me from my woes while I play referee for a while. All three have very strong opinions about each other. She has a very petite little face, demands pets and wants the prime place on the couch, but we won't spoil her, ha, ha. Miley's face says it all!

Hi Brandi,
Just thought we would send you a picture of our little cheerleader!! We took CoCo (formerly Avanti) tailgating with us this past Saturday to a University of Tennessee game...and we must have gotten over a thousand compliments on her, and that's no exaggeration! 10 different people even came up to us and asked if they could have their pictures taken with her too! She loved all of the attention, being the spunky little girl that she is! Can't believe she has been with us exactly 1 year this coming weekend, and we have loved every minute of it. Hope all is well with you guys down there and we will keep you updated on our little angel!

Yesterday we had a pap play date in Wilmington. Miley and Harry protected the pack of paps and one tiny sheltie with lots of barking! We then traveled over to Wrightsville Beach which is where this beach shot of beautiful Miley was taken. Miley feels the spaniel side of the breed with much gusto. She is pulling on the leash to get after those sea gulls that had the nerve to land in her vicinity!

Hi Brandi and Mike,
Titus and I had the best weekend ever !!!!!!!! This was a two day trial and we entered Standard Novice and Jumpers with Weaves Novice - the first day was a bit of an adjustment period , but as the day went on, I could feel we were connecting more and more and although we did not win anything the first day - I felt that we had achieved something big in our relationship - I read about the importance of connecting with your partner before running and so I spent a lot of time talking to him and working on focus instead of reving him up as I had in the past. On Sunday - he was totally one with me - it was so amazing - we ran both the Standard and JWW perfectly - no off course, no hesitation , just the two of us focused on our communiction with each other - as you can see, Titus won two 1st place ribbons and we now have our 1st leg in both catagories . We are EXCITED !!!!!! He has been a "dream dog" since the moment I first saw him, but running agility with a partner like Titus, is, as they say, PRICELESS !!!!

Much Love,
Barbara and Titus

Brandi,
Here are some pictures we took out at the show, some are taken away from the fairgrounds, we had coffee and sat outside and got a pic of him wanting his frankenstein cookie we got at a dog boutique there. we also got some photos at a park in payson az on our way back to chandler. Theres also a funny picture of him getting a bath, he looks so unhappy !! haha. he loves to travel and go places. He's really good in the hotels and driving around. And most of all he loves to show!! he really enjoys it. I will watch a lot of dogs out in the ring that look like they are doing it just because they have to, several ran out of the ring!! and others are so distraced. but not Slider!! he is so into me, and happy, wagging his tail and eager for the next step !! I always get compliments on him, how nice we look out in the ring, and how beautiful he is! I get a lot of the papillon people, breeders and show people, looking at him, they are very stuck up and rude here in my area!! they think just because they own papillons they are better than everyone else. But I love when they see me, just an average girl with this amazing looking super intellegent papillon, that blows theres away! haha. they won't ask me about him because im sure they're jealous! hahahah. anyways I'm rambling, but again thanks for taking the time to be here for me, and all of us papillon owners!

Hello,
Mia goes everywhere now and makes tons of friends. She is just wonderful, I couldn't have asked for a better pup. She is so happy and energetic. She's a ton of fun and VERY smart. I think she may be the smartest dog I've had. She knows so many tricks already. We put up stairs near my bed and she figured those out so fast. Poor Summer is still having trouble with them though. Mia uses those brains for evil though sometimes. She has figured out how to open the bottom drawer of my desk and will sometimes jump inside. She's quite comical (well Summer would proabably disagree!)

Hi Brandi,
We have had a very busy summer - Titus accompanied us on his first sailing trip - he wore is life jacket the whole time we were out on the water - I had him on a long line just in case - the weather was great and he enjoyed just sitting on deck watching all the activity, we docked in a different place every night and he was just so well behaved where ever we went. We are entered in several upcoming AKC trials this Fall, but in order to prepare, my trainer suggested we try TDAA - Titus and I had a blast !! They were indoor venues - which was wonderful considering the temperature and humidity in Florida this time of year - in two weekends Titus earned his Beginner Games Title and Beginner Standard Title - we did distance work so well that people were congratulating us as we came out of the ring - in one games class we had so many bonus points that our time was a minus 2 seconds. He is such a treasure in so many ways!!!!!!!!!! I have taught Titus to stretch on command -- so that when we are warming up for Agility - in addition to our little routine, I can get him to do a real stretch - it is adorable . He is happy, healthy and lovingly spoiled !!!! Hope you all had a great summer as well.

Warm Regards,

Hi Brandi,
Misha has become Ken's dog. She wants to be touching him all of the time and sleeps on him most of the day. Is she spoiled or not?????? She weighs around 3.5 lbs but she can hold her ground with Blitz who weighs 5-6 lbs. Misha's personality is very out-going and wants to be the center of attention but in a sweet way. More so than any other dog we have ever had. She just makes us laugh. Her little coat is coming out very pretty. When she is not with Ken she loves eating, playing and sleeping with Blitz. They get along very well and would be lost without each other. I am attaching a picture of them. We love our babies. They like to be called babies too!!!!!!

Take care,

Hi Brandi,
Mia (AKC Gayla) had her second round of shots last week and has been doing wonderfully. My vet said she was as healthy as could be and was very impressed with your shot program. He seemed very smitten with her and she gave him bunches of kisses. She's been great so far and knows several commands as well as how to walk on a leash. She is so full of spunk, I think she'd fetch all day if I let her. And her favorite thing to do outside is to catch bugs. About the second day home she caught and killed a butterfly of all things! She met the rest of the extended family as I went to visit my family once more before school starts up next week. She did wonderfully with all the other papillons. It was fun, I've never had that many in a house before. Anyways, just wanted to let you know she's still wonderful!

Hi Brandi,
Violet went for her checkup with my vet on Wednesday and passed with flying colors. I have scheduled her for her spay surgery this coming Monday so we can have that behind us. Violet is an excellent watchdog and yodels at one and all if she doesn't know what something is or if the doorbell rings. Lily goes for her ears and I have to watch for that. But if Lily bothers her long enough, she will make a weird quiet grrr noise and go for Lily, who then backs off. I'm sure they will work it out. Violet is a best buddy now and has claimed the top part of the other side of my bed as her sleeping spot. That is OK with Lily since she has always liked the foot of the bed. She is a real sweetheart and seems to have settled in well.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Brandi,
A dear friend and her children came to visit our farm today. She took some sweet pictures that include Ivy's showing off her agility skills. I thought you would enjoy seeing her in action. Jedi and Lewis are in the background watching. Jedi will be starting his Therapy dog work at Vanderbilt Children's Rehab. the end of this month. We still visit at the memory unit and they love him there. I call it our" 40 first dates" visits as they love him, but they never remember him. He is competing in excellence AKC agility now. You can be very proud of him. We have also been doing some teacup shows which are a lot of fun. Lewis will compete in his first AKC agility trial in Oct. He is very confident at home but more reserved at class so it will be interesting to see how it goes in a show setting. Ivy's amazing ability to go anywhere with such good manners has turned into a blessing for me. My doctor wrote a prescription for a service dog to help me manage my chronic pain. Ivy was the perfect choice. We have worked and will continue to work on many ways Ivy will assist me. I am very excited and having her has truly improved my quality of life. These three little papillons which you have allowed to be placed in my home are all asleep now in the kitchen dreaming of what adventure this afternoon will hold. I hope you and yours are doing well.

Blessings,

Hi Brandi,
Hope all is well with you guys. Lacey (aka Jolie) was spayed on Monday. She did fine. She is moving a little slower and likes to sit in my lap more than usual, but she went through it just fine. I slept on the sofa near her the first night so if she whimpered or cried I would know it, but she slept right through the night. I am sending you the paper work. I was tempted to get Lottie, but I have a lot on my plate right now so it would not be wise. She is so pretty and I would like my next one to be a red sable. Thank you so much for Lacey. Everywhere I go, people stop me to tell me how beautiful she is. Here are a couple of pictures of Lacey (aka Jolie). She's absolutely gorgeous.

Hi,
Gayla is now known as Mia and she's doing really well! She learned her new name within a couple hours and it really seems to suit her. She really is just the best puppy and lots of fun. She and Summer are doing well for the most part. Mia loves to follow Summer around and tries to cuddle with her. Summer isn't exactly as enthusiastic but I did catch her cleaning Mia's face. Mia met the extended family (my father and sisters' papillons) and she particularly loved my sister's 15 month old. They spent all afternoon playing chase and tug. I'm attaching a couple pictures of Summer and Mia together.

Hi Brandi & Mike,
I wanted to send you a picture or 2 of Daisy; she's hard to get a good photo of b/c she's always looking around to observe other dogs in the dog run, and keep an eye out for treats! She's doing great, and you can see how long and luxurious her coat is getting. She's still good friends w/Bunny, and very happy being a house pet. She's still exploring the city; I have to make sure she doesn't discover "treats" on the sidewalk! New York can get a little grungy, especially in the hot summer weather. Her confidence continues to grow- she'll even approach other dogs on her own in the dog run when we're out walking together. She's even run and played a few times; when she first came here, she was so shy she wouldn't leave my lap! Hope you are well, and please post these pretty new pictures of Miss Daisy- she's 2 this month! The other picture is following in a separate email.

Best regards,

Hi Brandi,
Well. Finley, previously Spades, is really starting to get the hang of things around here. :) He's doing so well and his confidence is improving daily. I finally heard him bark for the first time yesterday. He is also eating really well now. He loves his bed I have for him in my office. He also sleeps with us at night already. He is so beautiful with a wonderful temperament and so smart. He's already figured out the doggy door we put in for him. He is even getting along so well with our cats! They have already accepted him into their "pack". Thank you so much for letting us adopt him into our family. I'm attaching a picture of him sitting in his dog bed in my office while I worked on some things.

Brandi,
Just a quick note to let you know that Lily and Violet are doing well. No issues over eating or sleeping near each other and me. Lily barks at Violet when she has a chewie, but Violet holds her own and even chases Lily some. I'll send a pix from my iphone where Lily is telling Violet to give her that chewie! I think Lily wants her to play more and this morning they were running around the bed. Violet did cry a little after I went to work yesterday, and time will help that. Lily knows I go to work and settles right in with Eva or Sandra and my Mother. So, so far so good! She caught on to the stairs by the bed immediately and goes up and down them. Lily always uses them to go up, but too often sails off the other side to get down. Violet has not done that yet. She is a pro at pushing doors open - something Lily had not mastered. Lily has been so busy with Violet that she has not had time to dig too many holes. Thanks so much for giving me Violet. I think she and Lily will be great friends. Margaret

Hi Brandi,
Our baby went on a big trip this summer! We took Cedric to Paris for a month long vacation!!! He rode in the plane with us under the seat in front of us (I don't want you to think we would put him under a plane for 10 hours!... or ever!) He did so good on the plane! People would see him after we got off, and they would say "You had a dog!? I never heard him bark!" and I said, "that's because he is perfect and doesn't bark." :) We stayed in our apartment in Paris, so he had so much room to play! He had a lot of fun. Every walk we went on people would stop and speak to him and tell us that he was the dog of the kings and queens. I attached some pictures for you!

Sincerely,
Janae Terry

Brandi,
Violet has joined the family. Lily is a bit dismayed when Violet gets just the chewy that she wants (always the one that Violet has), but they will be fast friends here soon. Lots to learn for Violet. She is fascinated with the way that Lily likes to play fetch with the toys. She has no qualms about chasing Lily and is very sweet. She can already go up and down the stairs and is a fan of the backyard already. Violet was born on December 9th and is 7 1/2 months old. I'm hoping that Lily is so busy and pleased with her new buddy that she won't have time to dig more holes and mow down all the big monkey grass clumps around the tree! So far so good.

Hi Brandi,
We wanted to send y'all some pictures to show how Holly and Twinkle look as adults. (I think I finally figured out my digital camera). Twinkle is not nearly as shy as she used to be - as long as she's here at home. She's our `Great Communicator.' Her self-assigned jobs are to provide lots and lots of kisses and to notify us if it thunders. (She seems to think we're deaf and/or not very bright.) If it thunders or even just sprinkles, day or night, Twinkle leads us to the backdoor so we can open it and look out and see that it's raining. She's always proud of us when we figure it out because her job is done and she can run and hide under the bed for the duration. Holly is our clown. She knows lots of commands, and LOVES to train. I just have to show her something a couple of times and she'll understand. She and Twinkle are still very best friends, although since Holly is so much bigger than Twinkle she tries to be boss. If she gets too annoying Twinkle hides under our bed because Holly is too big to get underneath. This drives Holly absolutely nuts and she stands there with her head under the bed and growls. We have never been around dogs as smart as these two, or as much fun. I guess you already know that about paps, though .

Hi Brandi,
Just a little update on Dillon, originally named Randy, born 12/13/08. He is doing just great, he is a loving little guy that looks at our faces all the time like he is listening to our every word. He has gotten much braver about all the new things in his world and loves to fetch the ball. He brings it back to us, has just about learned to sit and shake and the house pottying has just about stopped. We couldn’t be more pleased with his personality and he makes us smile every time we look at his face. I am attaching several pictures, one to show you Gracie and one to show you how Dillon likes to get in our fountain. I am so pleased that Gracie has started playing with him all the time. She lets him chew her ears and flea her, she never nips or growls at him. Considering she has had a bad attitude toward other dogs most of the time this is miraculous. Dillon loves her. I am also attaching the charge list for the procedure as proof he has been neutered. Hope all is well with you. Look forward to hearing from you.

Scotty just got his last puppy shots. He is a total member of our family. He and Cody still like to destroy plastic and anything else they can find. The two have very different personalities. Cody acts like the God Father with intense drilling eyes, and loves to play fetch with his squeaky toys. Will come and beg that I throw his toys so he can fetch. Scotty just jumps around and tries to take the toy away. He likes to ambush Cody (AKA Riley) on his trip back to me with his toy. Scotty is now 6lbs/6ounces. Next trip to vet will be the big one!!!! Both are very healthy and doing well on their diet of stones, plastic, metal, twigs, and anything else they can find. This has made us improve our house keeping. Hoping you are having a good fourth.

Hi Brandi,
Just thought I would share a few photos of Miley as we celebrate her 1-year-with-us day. I threw in a few photos of her first days with us just to show what a difference a year makes. She is still a funny, playful puppy inside, but a gorgeous young lady on the outside. She did manage to get her CGC in March by the skin of her teeth! She has a hard time not expressing her opinion about other dogs! She enjoys agility just for fun so we will probably take a few more classes in the fall. The classes are a great way to sharpen socialization skills, but don't tell her that's why we are taking more!

Hi Brandi,
Keegan is doing great at flyball. We were at another tournament 2 weeks ago. We are very close to his next title. He just loves his ball. He races down to get it and jogs back with it. We are working on getting him to race back with it too. I have to order the new pictures from the photographer. He got some more great shots. We will be returning to agility next month. Hopefully I will be able to do it. I know Keegan can. We still get lots of compliments on Keegan's big ears. He is such a wonderful boy. Thanks so much for him.
Hope all is well with you.

Hi, Brandi (and Mike! ;-)),
Busy, busy, busy!! I spent all last weekend in a very intensive advanced agility seminar with Stuart Mah and I'm still recovering! Not for the faint of heart, but I think we did pretty well and I learned a whole lot, which is really the point of the whole thing anyway. I've been working with Titch more lately and we have been developing a much stronger bond. Last night I took him to class with me. I had him sit on a chair (we've been working on this) unattended while I taught the Advanced group (he was Very good - he does get lots of attention from the group though, they all really like him - they're still somewhat getting used to the idea of me with a dinky dog, hahaah). Then I ran him in the Intermediate II class and he is really coming along - he ran with me, took on a couple of UKC-specific obstacles that I KNOW he has never seen before and attacked the full-height A-Frame with such vigor that the class actually cheered!!!! I was very proud of him - and he is sooooo fast that I really believe that once he truly "gets" the game, he's going to be a killer. I took some more photos recently and I'm attaching some of my favorites. My doG this little guy is beautiful!!! And very photogenic. "Titch, The Handsome Little Prince"

Hi from Ranger and Elaine!
Today is Ranger's 4th birthday. He is so beautiful and full of energy. I wish you could have seen his winter coat. He looked like a tiny teddy bear. His favorite thing is chasing squirrels. Our squirrels are so fat and lazy that Ranger caught one last week. He just stopped running for a second to let him get another head start! I hope you and your pack are doing well. How are Ranger's brother and sister doing? I tell everyone that yours are the most beautiful papillons in the country.

Hi Brandi,
Well, CoCo (Avanti) turned one last week! Thought we'd send you some pictures from her little birthday party we had for her, complete with doggie ice cream and cake! The other dogs in the picture are her "cousins", aka Taylor's parent's dogs. She gets along very well with them whenever we bring her over for a visit, and can surprisingly outrun the lab whenever we let them out in the backyard. Unfortunately, we've been having a pretty bad heat wave here for the past several weeks so we haven't really been able to take her on many walks (her favorite thing to do!). Hopefully it will cool off a bit soon, because she tends to get a bit restless if she doesn't get her daily walk! Hope you guys are having a wonderful summer so far and are staying cool in that Texas heat! Thank you so much for sending us our beautiful little girl!

Hi Brandi,
I do not know if you had a chance to look at the pictures I posted, but if you do..... you can see how beautiful Bailey is. She is an awesome baby, and we love her so much. We are so happy with her! In the last month she has tranformend into a trouble maker, lol. She runs around picking on her brother, etc. (her personality really is showing). She has a doggy door and uses it well. She is my constant shadow. Just in case you were wondering how she is doing... she went out on her first RV trip and was at the beginnig a little scared and did get car sick, but I picked her up and she traveled on my lap and calmed right down.

Hi Brandi & Mike,
We discovered that Lily and Tango live on the same block!!! We had a short play date today (see photos attached) and they were both excited to meet. We like to call them "happy pappies." Margaret saw Tango at Starbucks (yes, he gets around) and she happened to mentiont that she recently got a new pap.... come to find out, she was "Pepsi" (now, Lily) from you! The dogs look so much alike...it was such fun! Enjoy the photos!! They will be BFFs! Tango "makes" Michael take a walk every morning for his heart and cardio workout...he's been such a much loved and precious "gift" to our family! Hope you are both doing well. We are putting Tango with an agility trainer while we go on vacation this summer to Europe. Let's see what he can learn?

Brandi,
Here is a picture of how beautiful Lily (was Pepsi) is now. She went over to my son Scott and his wife Jen's house this morning to meet Gracie and Max, the two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that they got from your friend. You can barely see one of them in the picture. They had a fabulous time running around the yard and will have plenty of play dates in the future. Lily is so fast that it isn't easy to get a good picture of her unless she is asleep. She loves being outside and patrols my backyard for any varmits that may try to invade. Then she digs holes. She is a good sport about having her feet washed in the sink numerous times a day. If I can give Lily a bath and get her white and fluffy, I'll try and snap a picture before she heads out to dig more holes. If she were a human, she would be called a tomboy for sure. Take care and give my best to Linda!

I met Lee Ann and the beautiful Trek. The show was very big and we weren't in the same rotation so I didn't get to see any of her runs and likewise. She is such a nice person and I look forward to seeing her in Aug. Desi did really well at the CPE nationals with (2) 2nd places and a 4th and several more qualifiying runs. He's such a good boy. I am going to send you a picture of him with all his ribbons as soon as I get them from my friends.

Hi Brandi,
A couple of new pics of the boys on vacation. Wyatt went in the ocean up to his shoulders - a first. And Woody got away from me on the beach, but was fast to come running when I ran the opposite direction. It's no longer fun when Mom runs from you!!! TOO SCARY!!! Both boys were troopers - and very worn out as you can see. Have a good one! (boys' impressions follow)

Hi,
Thought you'd be interested to see a picture of Rudy and "Waco," when they got their CGC designation yesterday. I think Waco came from your kennel 2 or 3 years ago. He was handled by Sonja--not his owner. Rudy's as smart as advertised--he does real well. By the way, Rudy weighed 5 whole pounds yesterday, and all of it's happy.

Brandi,
Last week we received the official registration papers from AKC for Titch, so now he's a "real" dog . However, the real news is....... This past Sunday your boy "Braylor's A Titch I Gotta Scratch" earned his first title/certificate. He passed his CGC exam with yours truly (I was the designated driver because he failed his previous try because he's such a momma's boy and whined a bit during the three minute separation part of the test.... sheesh - he was much less concerned with me being "away" ). He did all the other requirements with flying colors!! Greetings from Titch, newly annointed Canine Good Citizen, who continues to do outstanding work in his "day job" as Squirrel Warden.

Hi Brandi,
After our four month layoff Keegan and I returned to competition at the NET flyball tournament in Greenfield MA. This was Keegan's first tournament as full-time height dog. It was a big responsibility as in flyball it's the team's effort that wins/loses your points. Keegan was up for the challenge. Even though he was getting tired at the end of the day, he was giving it his best and his team came in fifth. He now has half the points needed for his next title. We are still limited by my inability to run but are working towards returning to agility by August. Hope all is well with you. Thanks again for this wonderful boy.

Brandi,
Thank you so much for your photo guide to trimming a Papillon's fur coat. I have never seen another Papillon other than in pictures. Mine is a companion dog and there aren't any others near me, so I had no idea what should be trimmed or how to do it. Last night my husband brought little Leo (large for a Papillon at 11 pounds) back from a hike and he had stickers and burrs in his fur. So, I decided I needed to trim him up a bit to make it more comfortable to remove them. His feet had very long front fur tuffts, sort of like a Hobbit's foot. I loved the look of it...so cute, but the burrs also liked it. After finding your site and seeing the photos, I realized Leo was very...uhhhh...natural looking. I have now trimmed up his feet and hocks, which should help considerably. Again, thanks for taking the time to post all the grooming photos of your Papillon. They really helped me out!

Brandi,
As you can see, Danni has really filled out, fur and body! She’s done it much faster than Jazzy did, just 9 months! She and Jazzy are so close in size it’s amazing. Danni’s fringe has been growing back in nicely. Jazzy’s unfortunately has taken a beating as she got distress with one “keeper” while I was out in last November and did some other scratching that torn out a lot of her lovely fringe so she is very thin these days. But hopefully one day it will grow back if I can keep her from tangling things up too much. Though they still don’t play together that much, they have a favorite game “steal the bone” as when 1 has worked on a cow hoove the other promptly steals it and visa versa. No matter that there are several laying around, they must have the one the other has worked on! They also love to race up the hill into the backyard after I get home from work and let them out. The woods keeps them coraled enough for me to do that now despite no fence back there. We take our walks after that on leash. Love my girls and so does Barbara! Thanks again Brandi. I am sending 2 pictures.
Take care,

Dear Brandi and Mike,
Titus was 2 years old on April 8th - it is hard to imagine life before Titus. He is the center of my universe in many ways. He is always cheerful and ready for the next adventure. He is the best companion. He is serious when working in Agility, and yet, makes me laugh at home with his various antics - he loves finding socks and depositing them around the house. He is the center of attention whenever we go out. He is so smart - his vocabulary is huge - he knows at least 10 toys by name in addition to all the Agility commands and other words. We just learned "stretch" - which will be very helpful when warming up for Agility. He is the BEST !!!!!

Cody is a wonderful, active, loving little guy. He is 10 inches tall and weighs ~ 8 pounds. He certainly stands up for himself and takes nothing from the cats or his partner in crime, Samantha, who weighs 50 lbs. The biggest problem we have is his compulsion to eat everything! He especially likes plastic stuff. We love this beautiful pap too much and he is so spoiled. Before he gets too much older we would like to get a pap companion for him. His best friend Sam will be leaving one day. Thank you so much for Cody.

Brandi & Mike,
I wanted to give you a little update on my sweet girl Daisy- she is such a wonderfully addition to my home! She's become very outgoing at home & is a good companion to Bunny- I've attached some photos of both of them playing together, as well as Daisy alone. Sorry for the poor quality of my picture- I had to go with a disposable digital camera. She's adapting well to city life, and slowly gaining confidence in the sometimes hectic small dog run. We walk together with Bunny, and she loves being outdoors, especially since the weather has begun to get better. She has a voracious appetite, and loves to sleep on the bed with me & Bunny (she was super-fast in learning how to use the doggy steps & navigate the stairs up & down to my apartment; she didn't know how to use the stairs when she first "moved in" but is very smart). Also, her coat is growing in, and she gets so many compliments on her beauty and graceful stance! I'll send more pictures when i get a better camera- in the meantime, i'd love to post this message & my photos on the testimonial page. I'm so happy with my Braylor papillon; thank you for helping me get this sweet little girl!

I was searching pictures on the internet for papillons and .... stupid me ... I never looked at your versatility page. I found a picture of Meesha playing with her ball. Cool! By the way, she still loves to play with that ball. Just wanted to let you know also that she is getting much better at being around other dogs. I should have got two papillons at once. I probably wouldn't have to re-socialize her. Oh well...we will get there. She goes to the pet stores and Lowe's and any where else I can bring my dog. Even some restaurants as long as we can sit outside. We are going to the FT worth Dog show this weekend. Are you showing here? If so, maybe we will see you.

Just wanted to keep you updated on how well CoCo (Avanti) is doing!! Her coat is continuing to get more and more beautiful with each passing day!! We are very thankful of the spring weather so that we can finally take her on some walks and wear her out! She is an endless ball of energy and still LOVES playing with her toys for hours on end. Can't believe she is already 9 months old today! This is a picture of her having fun playing at the park this afternoon. She's smiling at Taylor. Hope all is well with you and happy St. Patricks day!

Brandi,
I just thought I would send you this picture of our three papillions. I had to put them on the counter with a kid guarding them to get them to be in one spot long enough in order to get their picture. Parker (almost 5yrs), on the left and Gracie (will be 1 in April) on the right are my dogs. My mom has “Buddy” who you called “Solo”. I like your name better. :) Buddy spent the day at my house today as my parents had to go somewhere and were going to be gone all day. My mom and I trade dog sitting so they get to spend a lot of time together and boy do they have fun. Buddy and Gracie play so hard it wears me out. Parker gets in on it too but he oftentimes likes to watch. My mom always says that when they get Buddy home he is so tired all he can do is nap. My parents adore Buddy and he is one spoiled dog!! As you can see, Parker is huge compared to the other two. He weighs about 11 pounds but is not fat, he could probably lose a half a pound. Gracie is not even half his size but that does not slow her down any. Anyway just thought I would share and let you know the dogs are all great and we love them all.

Hi Brandi,
I hope you all are doing well. I just had to share this picture with you. I wanted you to see what she sleeps on while we are at work. It's Rick's recliner that he hasn't been able to sit in for more than a year. As you can see she has all of her baby blankets and stuffed animals. The animals all have names (Sissy, Pinky Dinky, Fish, Rocky Raccoon) and believe she knows their names. She is one spoiled little girl and knows it. Note, the blankets and toys go to bed with her every night. :) She is something else. We love her so much and it's amazing how smart she is.

Take care,

Pepsi - now Lily - is doing great. She has the household all under control. She loves my little grandsons and races around with them. I'll take a new picture as soon as the cone comes off this week from the spay surgery. Day 2 after the surgery Lily was running and bouncind around as usual - much to my dismay since she was supposed to leep calm for a few days! Lily is getting a beuatiful coat. It is very full and getting longer. Her nickname is Princess Mud and she gets a foot bath seevral times a day. She loves to dig holes to nowhere! She has the squirrels whipped into shape too. Will send her newer picture via email; thanks for such a sweet girl-

Hi Brandi,
I haven’t checked in in a while, but the boys are doing great! Riyo is still a little mama’s boy stinker and Darcy is just the biggest cuddle bug ever. They have both perfected the spin move and they do it at the same time. Darcy gets really excited about spinning and he outweighs Riyo by a couple pounds, so he sometimes takes Riyo out with his rear-end as he spins around. It’s pretty funny. Anyway, just wanted to let you know they are both doing great and I just LOVE them!

Hi Brandi,
Just a quick update on Bailey....She is doing wonderful. You would not believe her transformation from the time I picked her up until now. Very much a lap dog! She is slowly being introduced to different people and environment. She is definitely a mamas girl… She has a great personality, sweet and loves to play. Her potty training is coming along, still has a few little accidents but that is my fault. We have gotten very attached to her. Of course I am not sending you an email unless I send some of our favorite pictures of Bailey She loves her pink blanket! Frankie and Bailey play wonderful, but she loves to play with Graciela (whippet). I think Gracie prefers to play with Bailey. They are all so cute together. We are absolutely crazy about Bailey, happy to have her home. Thank you for letting us have Bailey.

Hi Brandi,
You may now refer to slider as "Braylors let it slide CD, RN. He got both his titles this weekend, thanks to the four day show!!! he qualified every time he went in!! and even got some placements out of large entries! A lot of people complimented us, and a few people with papillons asked me if Slider was a conformation champion because he looks so nice! our next step is his advanced rally title which should be a breeze, and we will start training for the open obedience class soon, so he can get his CDX.

Hi Brandi,
How are things in TX these days? We just had a major blast of snow for us. It came down in big flakes for hours yesterday. But we'd had 2 days of rain, so it only stuck in some areas. Attached is a picture from then and one where Jazzy and Danni are on the perch in the shadows because the window was so bright! They were not big on walking on it that much, but really liked it when I grabbed a handful and they ate it. From then on they liked to eat the snow (out of my hand of course)! The "girls" seem to be settled in now to a regular life with us since Danni's addition! I love having 2 girls with such night and day personalities. Makes life interesting! There's always 1 that wants some loving too (usually Danni as we've nick named her "pick me!" as she is usually hopping on her back feet for attention). Ha. Barbara is just as nuts over Danni now as Jazzy. I still always put Jazzy first with food, water, outside, everything pretty much so she is in charge and has claimed that role. With the cow hooves it is funny. Though I have several there's really only need for 1 bone as they steal it back and forth from each other - Jazzy loves to take it from Danni when she is distracted as it's been softened up! And Danni will swipe it back quickly. That is 1 thing Jazzy never growls at Danni about when it gets swiped. Their unwritten rule I guess! Anyhow, things are GREAT I just wondered if there was any way I could help them connect on playing or not. You always have such good advice, I thought it couldn't hurt to ask!

Sincerely,

Hi Brandi,
I just thought I would update you on Ryot (we call him Cedric) HE IS AMAZING!!! He is absolutely the best dog ever! He is trained very well too! We love him more than anything! I need to put pictures of him on my computer, and then I will email new ones to you! He is beautiful!!! Every walk we go on someone stops us to tell us how precious he is! He is such a happy dog! He weighs 6 pounds, and the vet said he is in great health. We are saving again to buy another baby from you! Have a great day!

Sincerely,

Brandi,
We have made it home safe and Baylie (BB) was a jewel! She was not nervous or drooled not even a bit. We got home around 4:30 pm. I gave her some time to settle and to patrol the backyard, she then followed Frankie’s lead and came in to check out her new home, and she ate all of her food (real good). We took some pictures of her in the backyard. Enjoy! I will take and send more once she has settled and starts prancing around.

Nancy and her husband love Rudy. She is a member of my training club and she brought Rudy up to meet me. She says he is quite a pistol at home with the other dogs. Hangs on to the standard poodle's hair and the Chin has finally accepted him as a member of the family. The newspaper took some pictures.

Hi Brandi,
I just wanted to let you know that Sprite, who we have now renamed 'Freya's Heart' (and call her Freya), is doing very well. She loves to play (torment?) with Trace and loves to give kisses whenever anyone is within her reach! She is so loving! We just adore the two of them, and my girls insist on having them come into their beds to say goodnight or they refuse to go to sleep. Freya doesn't think very highly of her new leash and harness yet, though. I'm hoping she'll get the hang of it soon so we can start taking her for nice walks. Trace loves going out for walks now so maybe she'll watch and learn from him. They sleep together and do very well at night and love it when Savannah comes to take them out in the morning (which is the best way I know to get my oldest out of bed in the morning!). We finally got a few good pictures (had to be taken fast so she didn't turn away! Everything else is much more interesting than a camera!) So here they are!

Hi Brandi,
This birthday greeting is from Venus. I typed in the words and Venus pushed the Send button with her nose! She's not a poet, but she can do amazing things with her nose. LOL. Have a totally COOL Birthday.

"I'm 3 years old now. Here I am standing on my dog walk. It's my favorite place to watch for squirrels, bunny rabbits and armadillos. Sometimes in the evening I catch a family of raccoons trying to sneak through my backyard. I love to chase all my visitors back over the fetch. I bark so loud my Mom says the entire neighborhood hears me.

Wishing you a tail-wagging, happiest birthday ever!!!!!!

Hey...
Woof, Woof! Attached is a photo of my boy, Fabio... ready for the Barkus parade!!!! My camera just fizzled on the battery, so I could only get one photo downloaded before it pooped out on me. The film crew from animal planet was there, and they interviewed us for a show that will air in the Spring... the name of the show is something like, "Worlds Craziest Dog Contest." (It's really not a contest, it's quite a nice parade for dogs and their human pets... and the proceeds are donated to various local Wellfare and Rescue Committees for Animals).

Hope ya'll are doing great!!!

Hey Brandi & Mike....
It's been a while but I just wanted to send you some new pictures of Casey (AKA Marco) in his new house. We moved to NC last year and just moved into our house in November. Casey is loving all the extra space to run around and play with the cats. Here are a few pictures of him taken around the holidays. He is doing great and gets more and more spoiled every day. We now take him for daily walks through the community and he loves the sun, and getting to meet new people.

Talk to you soon,
Eric, Melissa & Casey

Brandi,
Trace (Shadow) is really a little doll! He sulks, though, if he thinks he isn't getting enough cuddle time at night (I think his idea of enough is two or more hours!). He loves following us around and just adores 'his' girls, so much that he will follow them around, ask to play, or even go curl into their laps and fall asleep. We have also found that he's a little thief! He sneaks into one of our rooms and comes running out with whatever catches his fancy (stuffed animals are his favorite, but clothes and brushes are on his list too!), or if there is something out where we are, he sneaks up to it, looks around and then takes it and runs. You can just see his eyes light up with mischievousness! It's terribly funny to watch! He is good about dropping it (usually) if told too, though. I have been working on somebasic training with him, and he is good at sit, stand and watch, so far. He also loves fetch, and I'm working on 'come'. He is very patient for pictures too! We love him dearly and can't wait to add Sprite to our family!

Dear Brandi,
How about that Jedi! These picture were taken last weekend when he won his AKC Open Standard Agility Title. I am so proud of him. He is so happy and that is the best part. Lewis and Ivy have alot to do with bringing him back. Lewis is his rough house friend and Ivy is his snuggle bunny. He placed first on that run. How's that for icing on the cake. Hard to believe my little boy will be running Excellent with the "big" dogs. Hope you are doing well. Just had to share the news.
Blessings,

Hi Brandi,
Our girls were thrilled to see Shadow on your page! We have completely fallen head over heels in love with him! (but I'm sure you knew that would happen!) He is really doing well. He has started going to the door to go outside (but hasn't gone potty like that, yet) and he hasn't had any accidents. By the way, I was sure you had said he would sit in my lap.... well... I am discovering that is his place with the girls, but he seems to prefer to be up in my arms or practically on my shoulder! It's really sweet how he will crawl up and tuck his face into my hair while we are sitting down! We have come up with a name for him that really seems to fit. The name we like is 'Tracing Shadows' and we call him Trace. I wanted to keep some of his original name, but I preferred to call him something other than Shadow. There really isn't anything wrong with Shadow, but I have know many animals with that name and wanted something different. We like this one because he seems to be constantly following one of us! (And I thought a leash would be needed to teach him that!) We also wanted to let you know that we do, for sure, want Sprite. Let me know about everything when you can. Thanks!

Hi,
We are having a great time with Shadow. He traveled home quite well and he seems to be settling in very nicely. We came home after a visit to Petsmart and as you can see in the picture he loves his new bed (He goes into it and looks up at us with a look that says "This is mine)! We will be putting it in the kennel, but decided to let him be out for a while because he went potty outside when we got home and then promptly started playing with my girls. Tag seems to be the game of choice so far. We found him a new squeaky tennis ball that he really loves and is really funny to watch as he chases it around. Thank you again for such a sweet little boy!

Hi Brandi,
This was supposed to be for the PCAR table at Nationals, but when I tried it on Miley and it fit so well and she looked so cute, it became her sweater. Will start another tonight! Someone who is quite well known in the show pap world called her a "lovely bitch" and asked if I had shown her yet based on this photo. I was quite flattered! Who are you bringing to Nationals or is that a secret? I am learning there is a whole set of dog competition politics that the rest of the world doesn't know about.

Hi Brandi,
Titus and I had our first Agility Trial at the end of December - it was a 5 day trial and we signed up for everything . Our very first run was a fast class and Titus came in 1st and got his first Q - we became very,very, very excited and that excitement created "Super Titus" able to leap tall obstacles in a single bound - or as my trainer says - Titus had a bad case of the zoomys ! It was actually a bit funny - he was having the time of his life.

Hi Brandi,
All is well - no delays, in fact very quick! He is wonderful!! Wyatt is fine with him - I brought the crate in, set it down, and Wy was so interested in that, he didn't realize that I had carried Woody in and set him in the hall. Then I called Wyatt and he "found" him, did the dance around, sniffed, puppy bow, and then ran off to play with a toy. I did just now put Woods in the bathroom so he would eat, and he is.
A little later.....
Very big bed, very little Pup!! Woody seems to be right at home - has met everyone here and did fine. He already stole a toy from Wyatt though, so Wy isn't speaking to him right now - I'm sure they will figure it all out. I curious to see how well they sleep together tonight - could be interesting. I'll keep you posted.
Thank you !!!,

Hi Brandi,
Are you trying to drive me crazy with the puppy Rudy? knowing full well it is related to Dallas AND Desi? Desi has turned out to be a great agility dog and already has 10 double Q's towards a MACH title (the highest title awarded in agility). It stands for Master Agility Champion. He only needs 10 more which I think he will earn very quickly this Spring. Trust me, you will be the first to know when it happens!! Dallas is the over achiever and is VERY fast but we don't qualifiy as often because he such a maniac on the course. This can be lots of fun and is NOT a bad problem. Desi is more a Mommies baby and always wants to do everything right by my side. Dallas thinks he doesn't need a Mommie and can do the course without me. In a nutshell, they are both so much fun!!!

Hi Brandi and Mike,
Thought I would send a very quick note regarding Rocco to let you know that he is doing super. The dogs have adjusted to each other and are playing well together. They even grab naps on the couch together....we'll have to get a picture at some point and send it. He is doing his business both outside and in the litter boxes we have at home and at Grant's work. He is always so proud of himself when he gets his treat after doing "boxy"! When you said he would bond deeply, we had no clue as to how deep. He is absolutely glued to Grant in a very confident manner. Grant takes him to work with him every working day (he owns his own business) and Rocco stays and/or sleeps/plays right next to Grant whatever he is doing. The employees love him and the customers have all had very positive things to say about Rocco. One, who doesn't like dogs, said to Grant "I don't like dogs, but this one is one I could live with!". Grant is definetly a proud "daddy". Whenever we are out to the pet stores, we always get many positive comments about him (Grant just puffs up a bit more every time). Rocco loves him and knows Grant belongs to him. Yes!!! I can't tell you in words how great Rocco and Grant are together. I told him the other day that it reminded me of the movies you see of the young boy with the dog following on his heels in a meadow or going down a country path. They have that kind of bond. Hope all is well with you.

Dear Brandi and Mike,
Titus had a great Christmas - both of my girls were home for the holidays - Elizabeth, [ 1st Lt.in the Army - flew in from Fort Lewis in Tacoma , WA] and Victoria [ sophmore at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts,flew in from Boston] - the house was full of noise and activity and Titus took it all in stride . He had a share of our traditional roast beef and yorkshire pudding for which he was extremely grateful - tail wagging , barking , jumping etc. The weather has been so warm here , we are still using air conditioning !!! No use for all the lovely sweaters that he owns - oh well , maybe next year. We had our first Agility Trial immediatly after Christmas - the very first run was a Novice Fast Class [ AKC ] - Titus got a Q and came in with a first place. We had a blast !!!! Hope you all had a very Happy Holiday .

Warm Regards, Barbara and Titus

Hi Brandi,
A belated Happy Holidays to you! I am so glad 2008 is over. Thought I'd send you a few pictures...Emmy Lou...is such a mess. She is really full of herself and bosses all the other dogs around. I took care of 2 french bull dog puppies for a few weeks in December. "M" was bossing them around too, she wouldn't play with them unless we were outside running and she'd jump on their heads and growl. They were like a couple of fireplugs next to all my pups. She has this low GRRRRRR when she's getting her belly rubbed and another dog comes near. We took her on a road trip to Louisiana at Christmas and she flew home with me. The flights were delayed and the weather was crazy and she was so patient and good and let the kids in the gate touch her. She is doing great and so spoiled and loved. Have a great 2009!

Hi Brandi,
Just wanted to wish you a happy new year as well as send you another update on how Coco (Avanti) is doing!! She turned 6 months old around 2 weeks ago and is weighing in at about 3.8 lbs now! She spent her first Thanksgiving and Christmas with us up in St. Louis and our entire family fell in love with her! We took her with us to visit my grandmother's assisted living home and she was absolutely the highlight of everyones day! We are attaching a picture of her in her Christmas dress as well as another picture so you can see how beautifully her coat is developing! Hope all is well with you!
