Cathy, hi Dean
just wanted to let
you know that we are doing well with Mr. Darcy. He's so full of
energy- he's keeping us busy but what a love. We have never laughed
over his antics. We are totally in love with him. He is so smart
and we start obedience school in two weeks which will be good. We'll

This is Linda XXXXXX. I adopted one of your puppies
this past June. Time certainly has gotten away from me, but I just
wanted to tell you what a great puppy Buffy (Sweetheart) has become.
Attached are a couple of pictures we had taken for our Christmas
card. She weighs about 9 lbs now and you will see what a cutie
she is. She has already taken an obedience class and showed us
how smart she is. And everyday she shows how lovable she is. I
also wanted to let you know that we had her spayed this past October.
Buffy gets lots of walks, trips to the dog park and plenty of play
time. We are so happy to have her as part of our family.You certainly
should take pride in your puppies. Thank you very much again for
Buffy. Happy New Year!

Molly had a great day today running and playing outside. She is
so tired that I hope she sleeps better tonight....
Check out the picture of Molly that Walter took outside today.
I know this
letter goes to your web site but perhaps you could give me your direct
email so I could keep you posted if you don't mind. Thanks for
the great dog!! Have
a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Hello Cathy & Dean,
The happiest girl in Mississippi lives in my house. Joy and "Coconut" are
inseparable. If she is not in his sight, he is crying for her. He
is a beautiful animal...
All I read about this breed is phenomenal. Friends with kids much
younger than my daughter just got one, and they have been very pleased.

...I also want you
to know just how right you are when you say there is nothing
puppy Buffy and she is a barrel of energy and personality. She
loves everyone that comes into the house, because she thinks they
just to see her. (Actually, lately people do come just to see
has been a great addition to our family.I will send some pictures
so you can see how precious she is getting.

I just wanted to check with you and make sure that you received
the picture and the letter from my vet about Katie’s check-ups. She
is perfect, as you would expect. We are just loving her to pieces.
She develops her sweet little personality more and more every day.
There are times when she just cracks me up. The other day she tried
to wake me up by licking my eyelids open. I don’t think I have
ever seen a brighter, more intelligent dog. She has been so easy to “potty
train” that it is actually scary. I am almost wondering if
she might have trained me. I really cannot thank you enough for the
you gave me by letting me have her. My parents and I have gotten
so many hours of pleasure just watching her...

I wanted to send you a couple
of pictures of Talbot and to let you know that we are just so happy
with him. He is the sweetest little guy, and very bonded to me.
He has begun protecting me, he now barks and growls quietly if
anyone he thinks is questionable comes near me. The other night
my husband came to bed later than usual in the dark, and he was
protecting me until he heard his voice.
He loves being outside, and particularly
enjoys our walks along the river. At least 2-3 a day. Sometimes
he gets so tired that he has to lay down to rest, or have me carry
him for a jaunt, then he wants down and runs some more. He is very
sociable and loves everyone he meets, even other dogs. He already
knows how to sit, lay down, shake, dance (in a little circle) and
he heels at every curb before crossing the street. He is so smart,
he has turned many of our large dog loving friends into thinking
about a small dog. J We LOVE him.
Just wanted to pop in and see the new puppies. Ohhhh,
they are so adorable.
Talbot is doing well, he's 5 pounds at 6 mos. He
is such a lover. Every morning after he eats, he asks to be held
and falls asleep in my arms. He is such a baby and very spoiled.
We have a gazillion dogs in the community, and yet all the neighbors
agree, Talbot is there favorite. We even get phone calls from the
neighbors to bring Talbot out to show off to their visitors. :)
he is so loved!!
Thank you so much!

How are you? I just wanted to give you an update
on Allie’s progress. She just graduated from her puppy training
class on Wednesday night. She did pretty well. I joined our local
Roaring Fork Kennel Club last month, so I will start hearing about
all the shows around this area now. I am starting a handling class
with her next month, so I’ll let you know how that goes.
She is so much fun. She weighs about 6 lbs now and is growing up
very nicely. I’ll take some recent pictures to send you.
Hope all is going well for you and your family. Take Care.

We had such a wonderful day today with Praline! She was with my daughter
and I the entire day and night as we shopped for things
for her and showed her off. Everyone loves her but not as much as we
do. She was sweet, loving, responsive, playful and so adorable. She got
along great with our other puppy also. We even celebrated tonight by
all going to the ice cream store for pralines 'n cream ice cream. The
poor thing is so tired. She is in her crate and her crate is in the playpen
we got for her today. She seems very happy and did not seemed fazed at
all by the travel and change of people and scenery. You certainly did
something right. My mother-in-law, who lives across the street from us,
fell in love with her and demanded that I find her an identical one for
her. I told her Praline will be over there enough that she won't need
her own. But we will see. So keep us in mind for another pure white very
small female if you should have one. When is your next litter?
Thanks again for everything. I hope you are all safe in the hurricane.
I took a whole roll of film today that I will send you tomorrow. Thanks.

We are having the best time with Praline!! From the moment she came out
of her crate at the airport she has been sweet, loving
smart. She immediately became best friends with our mutt puppy Wags who
is about 25 lbs. Wags is very gentle with Praline and they sleep together
(during the day only), eat out of the same bowl at times, share all their
toys and bones and play so well together. It is truly amazing.... She
is very easy and had her first puppy cut this week. I like to see all
of her face and keeping her hair a little shorter is easier to keep her
We are so happy and EVERYONE who sees her wants one just like her. Especially
my mother-in-law who is going nuts that Praline is ours and not hers.
She definitely wants to be told first as soon as Peaches has her next
litter. Talk to you soon.

Your new puppies are so cute, but no white ones. Do you think one will
be little like Praline? The brown one is so cute. Praline weighs 4.2
lbs and was spayed and microchipped last week. She is doing amazing.
She loves, loves, loves our other puppy, Wags and is totally attached
to her. She goes many places with us in the car and loves to stick her
head out of the window while I am driving. She is the cutest thing.
........ Thanks for her. We love her to pieces. She is great on the leash
but will only walk if Wags is with her. She is good in the house as long
as I am diligent in taking her out every two hours. Thanks again. I will
send more photos soon.
of my patients came in to the clinic today with a new puppy she purchased
from you...and let me just say...that from the second i saw "praline" (the
puppy's name), i was in love! she's the most adorable puppy! i've
been wanting to have a dog of my own..i thought a havanese would
be the perfect dog for me...i like them small, cute and lovable!
Dr. Charmaine Calderon
We have become quite attached to the little thing.
We named her Sophia and call her "Sophie". She went to
a movie with us while we were out of town and slept through all
the movie! Go figure............She is sooo sweet and we love her
dearly. She has a wonderful personality and full of energy. We
had her under the tree for Christmas in the carrier. Our children
thought she was a STUFFED animal! She just sat still looking at
them with her head tilted. She finally moved and they realized
she was real! They just adore her.
Thanks so much for all your help,
Just a status update. He is doing just great. We
have not fixed the name yet. Going from Gizmo to Shadow to Dashing
to Little Guy to Tuffen. He is sleeping in his basket in my office
right now. He and Rufsen had a lot of running and wrestling already
this morning. They are getting along well. First Rufsen appeared
jealous and growled to assert himself but now it is very much a
parallel game where the little one is proving to be quick, smart,
daring and strong. My son has him in his room every night. Eats
lots-all the time if he could (but I give him 3 times a day..)
and is excellent at finding the paper to go potty on. 85% accuracy
overall at this point. He has been confused by throw rugs so we
are removing those.
He is great and now
Rusfen and he are very much at peace and share food and water bowls
freely. We think our name is going to be "Giszmo (extra fun
spelling) the Snowball Guy".
Just wanted to thank you for
bringing Knuckles into our lives. He is so much fun!!! We followed
your advise and got him almost potty trained at this point, just
a few poops every now and again.
He plays "slipper" with
Erik, our son, and they chase to see who can get the most points.
(the idea of the game is whomever receives the slipper a/k/a shoe
first gets a point until one of them gets to ten. At ten the winner
gets a prize. ie. human or dog treat.)
He also plays so gently with
our daughter. Ensley & I watch, but never have to worry. He
just seems to know that she is a toddler and is gentle with her.
FYI: He is growing up so beautifully
and looks great when Erik & I bath him. I will send you some
photos soon. You would be proud. Of course this picturesque moment
only lasts a couple of hours as he does his typical "run like
hell" routine as soon as he gets outside.
Anyway, just wanted to give you
the update. Thank you again,
Kari, Erik, Ensley & Brian
I'm sending you what I think would be a better photo
of Bandit to use on your website. He is a wonderful, wonderful
little dog! Everybody who meets him loves him, and wants a Havanese,
and he loves everybody.
I just wanted to let you know
that "Memphis" and I are getting along marvelously. Checkers,
my Maine Coon cat, is getting to be her "best buddy." She
is just the greatest dog I ever had. She is doing very well in
puppy class. I was shocked to see another Havanese in the class
because most people I talk to about Memphis haven't heard of the
Havanese breed...too bad! Zoe is the name of the other Havanese
in the class with Memphis, and they both have a ball during play
time, as they are just a few weeks apart in age. Cudos to you for
raising and producing such wonderful pups! I almost want to adopt
five more... Hope all is well with you and yours.
..... I can't tell you how much we are enjoying Allie.
She is a real cuty and a constant source of entertainment. She's
absolutely in love with my golden retriever and he is so good with
her. I was worried that he would have a hard time sharing the attention
but he really seems to be enjoying her too. Hope all is well.....
like to bring Bandit over for a very brief visit some time at
your convenience. I would just like for you to see him and for
him to see where he came from. He has grown up to be such a beautiful
dog, and has the most marvellous personality. He has a new kitten
friend named Buster, and he and Buster play like no cat and dog
I have ever seen.
Anyway, I would like to come over and bring him, just for ten or fifteen
minutes. And I can come over just about any day and any time.
Warmest personal regards,
We're in LOVE!!!! We've picked a name. Boomer! He sounds
like rollng thunder running
through our house! :) As you can see, he has made a new friend, Duke.
They hit it off right away. Vet checked him out yesterday & was
just delighted with him. He's doing great and seems to be adjusting
just fine. He woke up this morning at about 4:30, I let him out & he
went back to bed until my husband got up for work around 5:15. While
hubby was in the bathroom getting ready, somebody got into bed & took
over his spot! When my husband got out of the bathroom, he comments
what's this? and Boomer lifts his head temporarily to look, sighs, & goes
back to sleep. It was a great early morning laugh.
Thank you so much!
Just a quick update on "Izzy." She
is quite a character, giving my 2 yr old dog a run for his money.
She is doing quite well, letting me sleep through the night the
past two nights, having very few accidents in the house and just
being an all around great puppy. She is so playful and happy. Everyone
just loves her and she seems to love everyone and everything, the
cats, bugs, lizards, etc. She is so smart, I have her sitting for
a treat! We are all amazed. Thank you so much for your good care
of her in her early days. My vet gave her a clean bill of health
and said all was well. I'll try to keep in touch as she grows.
She did give us a scare on her third day here, she was bouncing
around outside not watching where she was going and managed to
fall into the pool. Fortunately it is very warm and I think she
learned her lesson. She did swim well though during the couple
seconds it took to scoop her out. Didn't even get her head wet!
She makes a wide path around the pool now though.
Well, we finally made it back to San Antonio---2200
miles later! I was really prepared for a bad couple of nights, barking
out of loneliness and anxiety of new surroundings... what a phenomenal
dog she is...she slept all night both nights and when I got her up
at 6:30 she "did her business" right away on the newspaper
I had set out. What a shock that was! All the way home whenever she
had to tinkle or have a bm, she would start barking, we would pray,
cross our fingers and pull off the road--out came the papers and
she immediately took care of business. William and I were shocked
all over again...you have done a great job of getting her started
with her potty training. I will have to continue on your good work.
We are so pleased with her. She is so lovable and good natured. Today
I went by to show one of my best friends (she is a dentist) at her
office and my God I had 15 ladies come pouring out of all the offices
to take a look at our Mia! It took me 45 minutes to get her out of
there because everyone was fighting over who was going to hold her.
Anyhow, people kisses and puppy kisses to you and Dean and Allison.
Thank you once again.
He has won the hearts of the entire neighnorhood... ladies and female
dogs are his specialty! You should see the show he puts on for them!
He even has a little Yorkie girlfriend... sperating the two fo them is
like breaking up Romeo and Juliette! Her daddy literally ends up dragging
her away on her back as she just rolls over and stays there... walking
the two dogs away all they do is look back at each other and pull...
it's a riot!
Max is adjusting to the household and is terrific with the cat.. though
I think the cat is still trying to understand why this little visitor
is still here. The potty training is coming along. Max is teaching me
how to tell when he has to go out. We're still having a challenge in
the morning and timing my return during lunch. But we're working on it.
any suggestions would be very welcome!
He went swimming the other day... he was terrific! he then had his first
bath (to wash the salt water off). We visited the vet and he's A-OK.
I can't thank you enough for raising him so well. he's a charmer and
such a well behaved little guy. He is the charmer of Mystic!
