We love to hear from the people that our pups adopt.
Hello Leslie and Roxanne,
We just wanted to let you know that our Golden puppy, Emmie, is doing well and enjoying her new home. Already we can see that she is very intelligent and is a BIG hit with everyone that meets her. We are taking her to all kinds of places to do some imprinting and introducing her to many dogs. We’re starting her in puppy training classes next week.
All the best, Dan and Mindy
Hi Les and Roxanne
Wanted to send along this Christmas picture of our dogs. We just love them. The new puppy is getting along good with his big brother. Don and Janet
This puppy is unbelieveable. He is so smart. Has slept through the night since we brought him home. I took up all my rugs til he got trained. He has not made one mistake in the house, goes to the door , sits and waits for someone to let him out. The vet says he is going to be a big dog and she loved him also. The kennel wanted to keep him. Annora is doing very well with him. He just doesn't seem like a puppy. Glad I changed my mind. Thanks!!!
|Hey Roxanne, at long last some pictures of Amarillo, the one where he is sleeping with the rocking horse is the most recent, just a couple days ago, the others were around thanksgiving. He's growing well, had his shots till spring when we will do lyme. As you can see his belly skin is getting darker. He has the run of the house now, still has his pee pen but mostly goes outside. He sleeps next to us at night (hitched) and he wakes me up when he needs to go out and out we go. He's a great, smart, little pup. I would guess he is pushing 30-35 pounds He and Merry (our setter) romp almost non stop, she is very good to him, he snuggles with us in the bed and on the recliner and he thinks his life is good. He is starting to get his big dog hair and to cut some back molars, he hasn't teethed or trashed anything he shouldn't. Good Boy Rio! May ya'll have a good new year full of healthy puppies and good dogs. Linda|
She IS a beauty Roxanne...and is as sweet as she is pretty.
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! I couldn't be
happier...and she is such a happy dog too :) Merry Merry
Christmas to you and your whole family...including ALL those
furry friends too!!
Thank you , Jane Hansen Morgan
Roxanne and Leslie
Kodi has quite the personality! He's still sweet and loving, but he has a mind of his own and tries to see how far he can push. He loves it outside and particularly loves my rose bushes! He tries to sneak over and eat them every chance he gets!
He has taken quite well to the crate (as long as the door is open) and he has already learned how to fetch a ball and "sit". He's still eating like a horse and we had to move Kasey's dish to another room so that Kodi wouldn't eat his food.
Date: Fri, 24 Dec 2010 Kodi weighs 28 pounds now. He eats like he's never going to get a chance to eat again! He and Kasey get along great and are really good friends. Kodi goes to Doggy Day Care and he loves it! He is fully crate trained and 98% house trained (he still has an occasional accident if he gets too busy playing with Kasey) Emil took him to the vet for his follow-up shots and she was very impressed with him! She said you could tell that he came from good stock. He will be going to obedience school at the beginning of the year, but he already knows quite a bit. He knows that if he comes in after being outside and doesn't head right for the cat food, he gets a treat! He's really smart and sweet and we just think the world of him. Hope you're feeling well and ready for the holidays, Emil and Patty Smith
Kodi and Kasey get along just great! We try to encourage them to rough house outside, but they have an occasional play session inside and it's great to watch! Kodi is fearless and goes at Kasey with gusto, but Kasey is gentle and patient with the puppy. We're very lucky to have two great dogs!!
Thanks again for caring enough to breed such great puppies! We'll stay in touch,
Emil and Patty
Hi Roxanne! I just wanted to send you some pictures of
Baxter. He is my baby and he follows me everywhere I go. I
also take him every morning for an hour long walk. We also
moved to Wells, Me this summer and he loves the beach. Hope
all is well.
Roxanne, Here are some photos of our handsome Cooper Cassidy Duff~ He is a wonderful, loving, beautiful companion. He has brought many blessings to our lives but the most of all he is a huge part of our family. We just LOVE him!!

earned her 2nd leg towards her CD title on Sunday!! She did
awesome! Just one more to go!! We are showing again in
February. I'll keep you posted :))" Sue
Just wanted to send along another achievement of our girl. Hope you enjoy the picture. The Bally's
|Roxanne - Kobi is doing incredible. He is such a joy and let me tell you how mellow the boy is. Everyone is always commenting on how well behaved and how mellow a dog he his. He just loves, loves, loves to swim, play ball, carry his toys around the house, especially a ball in his mouth. His obedience is going so well too. He is almost done with Intermediate and will be moving on the Advanced I at the beginning of September. He is the STAR student of his class. The instructor wants me to seriously think about competing in Obedience competition with him because he is soooo good. We shall see. We have surely enjoyed the puppy stage with him but so look forward too to seeing what he is going to look like when he is full grown. I think already he is a combination of both his mom and his dad. I would so love to have another one right now, but not sure if having 4 dogs is ideal at this point. Hopefully really soon. He is such a good boy and I didn't know that I could love him as much as I do. Thanks again for the opportunity to have him in our lives. I've also attached a few "brag" pictures of him. Have a great day. Holly Taylor|
Here is a picture of our Watson. He is a wonderful dog. We are very pleased with him and love him so much.
(Watson is one of BENTLEY AND MERCEDES Puppies).
Finally got around to emailing you about our princess Brandi. We our truly in love with her. i have to say you were to right i didn't need anything more on my full plate. Brandi has been very easy to train. we started easy by putting a bell on the front door and she trained with in a week to ring it when she needed to go out. she also knows how to sit, wait, go eat, lets go bye bye, fetch, and drop it and very close to heel and come. She came to school with me to pick up the kids almost every day. She came to the barn once a week and made many friends ( between the horses, people and the dogs). we take her on walks up to the fields, and and she loves to chase the birds when I'm in the garden and the kids in the pool. Our other dog if you remember, OC, loves Brandi they go on walks together and play in the back yard he seems so much happier to have another dog/playmate around. We have had 3 people ask if we were going to breed her and many ask were we got her so we passed your website along to many. she was spaded on June 16 every thing went well she is recovering great she get her stitches out a later week. she has become Emily's best friend (she was the one who did all the researching on her) Brandi and her do everything together from watch TV to running. Emily when on a run with out her one time and she watched her run not taking her eye off her once. we will travel to see Family in St Louis this summer and we couldn't bring ourselves to leave her in a kennel. she made a ten hour drive ( she loves the Car) to Ohio then another 10 hours 4 days later to St Louis. Our family loved her. she made many friends and she was a joy to bring with us. Even grandma who doesn't like dogs enjoyed her. she stayed with the other set of grandparents for a weekend when we traveled to a hotel to see friends and they just loved having her. thank you so much for this blessing. we love her!!
Mary Mike and all 5 of the kids ( Becher family)
|Dear Roxanne, We wanted to take this opportunity to
thank you for all your help with our new puppy. It was a
pleasure to meet you and all of your animals. It has been 10
days since puppy Seamus came to our home and he is doing
great. He slept the entire 8 hour ride home from your house.
As you will recall, we have a toddler in our house as well
as a 4 year old golden and all have adjusted with no
problems. The neighborhood kids love him and even those that
are afraid of dogs are enjoying his gentle disposition.
Seamus has adapted to our routines quickly. He is precocious
and loving.....he likes to be right by our sides and in the
middle of the action. By the third night, Seamus was
sleeping the entire night in his crate. And, I am happy to
say that for the most part he is house trained. Thank you
again for your tireless efforts and expertise in initiating
the potty training for your pups. It made a tremendous
difference. Once again, thank you for everything. Regards,
The Sullivan Family P.s. Your trick with the squirt bottle
|Hi Roxanne, Bentley
will be 3 in June. His is a small male like Harley, 75
pounds, perfect size for us. He's the easiest dog we've ever
had. Sleeps in the hall between the girls rooms because he
can't choose between them. He is a lamb and we love him to
death. Bentley was worth every penny, but I didn't realize
it at the time. I was going out on a limb paying that much
for a dog, but now because of his temperament I can say he
was worth every penny and then some.
Best Regards, Kelley Sewell
|Yes, she does lead the
life.....we love her so much!!.sometimes she cries in the
morning (she is very vocal talks alot...) for one of us to
get out of bed, we think she wants to go out, she actually
wants to get in our bed.... The picture in the chair with
my husband, (as she is a daddys girl) is where she does
spend part of her nap during the day, also she finds her way
there when something startles her. She thinks she is a lap
dog...don't remember her weight, however she is on the
smaller/petite side..which we like.. Our Maggie Mae is so
sweet, a very affectionate dog... she loves to be touched,
and massaged. She is also very happy go lucky...just seems
to love life, no matter what she/or we are doing. She is
very excitable but yet very calm. She is also very obedient,
I don't really recall teaching her NO, she just seems to
KNOW. Ann Marie
|Hi Roxanne, I wanted to let you know that we just love our puppy we purchased from you. He is the best dog ever. He just loves everyone and he gets along so well with the kids and other dogs in the neighborhood. I want t thank you also for being such a responsible breeder and putting so much emphasizes on the health clearances in which all your dogs have. Buying a quality well bred pup really make such a difference in so many ways. Michelle|
|Hello Roxanne, Thank you so very much for everything you've done for us. Our puppy has adjusted very well and we love him so much. Thanks again, Julie, Ted and Andy ''Our dogs Baylee and Gabby''.|
|The dog on the top is one of our puppies a wonderful couple purchased from us. He is loved and spoil as you can see when you link to their page. http://www.ongoldenhill.blogspot.com/ Thank you Kathy + Rich Demetrius for giving one of our babies such a nice home|
|Hi Roxanne: Here are a couple pictures of Calli. She is a sweetie! Talk to you soon. Have a good day. Karen|
|Hi Roxanne, Just
wanted to share some photo's of Molly. She is the BEST!!!
She's such a good puppy! And boy is she smart. At 13 weeks,
she is housetrained, she can sit, stay, down, come, and give
her paw on command. We just love her!!! Molly's training
is going great. She will make a very good therapy dog! She
is also learning some obedience commands. I'll update soon!
We'll send updated pictures soon! Thanks! Sue and Dave
February 1, 2009---Update---"Hi Roxanne. hope things are
good with you up in maine. molly is doing great...we were
recently certified as a therapy dog team! Haven't done any
visiting yet but Molly and i will be at the Boston Childrens
Museum on June 20th representing Therapy Dogs. And she
passed her Canine Good Citizens test in December. We're
training now for her to earn her CD title next (it will be
awhile). She is so smart!!!
|Roxanne, Thought you
might like to see a few pictures of Marley. He's doing
great, and the family loves him. He's a great family dog -
very loving and friendly. We've referred a few people to
your kennel who have seen him and mentioned how good looking
a dog he is. He's filled in the hole which was made when we
lost Wills in September!
Best regards, Rich and Nancy Warren
|HI ROXANNE, THE PUPPIES ARE DOING GREAT AND GETTING SO BIG. JAKE REALLY LOOOOVES THEM ! HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. TAKE CARE, JIM TRACEY AND THE BOYS!!|
|Hi Roxanne hope winter
is treating you well!!! Here are some pics of Max. As you
can see he is a couch potatoes at times and thinks he is
12lbs and can fit compactly on our lap instead of the 60+
lbs he is. He has the best disposition! He definitely
favors me over everyone else (makes me feel special) even
though its probably only because I am the one to feed and
walk him. Everyone asks me if he is done the puppy stage of
chewing, hyper ect. and I tell them he never chewed one
thing and he is so even with energy. I don't think I've
loved a dog more than Max (seriously). Thank you so much
for caring about your own dogs because the outcome is
wonderful. For anyone considering getting a Golden from you
please let them know I would be more than happy to give them
a glowing reference. Amy
|Hello Roxanne, I thought that you would like to see a recent pic of Auburn to show you how big she is getting. She is doing awesome! Getting us up early on weekends though! :) She is in puppy school. She is really good at sitting and she is fully house trained. She is getting better on the stay. If you notice in one of the pictures...she rings a bell when she needs to go out. It is sooo cute. Liza and Brett|
|Roxanne, Jala is doing
just great -- she has the sweetest disposition and is very
loving & snugglely. She gets along great with her "sister
cat" Jaz! I am so happy with her -- she is just what I had
hoped for! We have gone thru Beginner Obedience & will start
Intermediate in March -- my Doggie Daycare provider offers
the classes -- she is very smart & learns fast. She weighs
45 lbs. at 6 months old. Of course, she sleeps with Jaz & I
-- her head either tucked in my neck or on the other
pillow!! She is the best & has enriched my life greatly --
does a great job filling that hole left from losing my
Maggie. I had her spayed 1/29/09 & she came thru without
any issues or problems. She is a big hit at the Vets-- the
Techs all love her & give her much attention! I go on your
website often -- sounds like you will have a busy Spring.
Can't wait to see the new little ones! I'll put one of your
cards up on my Vet's board. Take care, & thank you so much
for all the joy-- Marge
|Hey Roxanne, Just some very early pictures. Buck is doing great. I'll send you some more the next time we upload pictures from the camera. He is 10-16 weeks in these photos. We love and adore him, and he is the star at the local dog parks. Matt|
|ok,.. this is the only serious shot you'll ever get of Monte. He does NOT stop long enough to take a pic and most on this new cam are of him in midair. I kid you not!! He's a gem. This one pic should just be of Monte looking a bit like Landon. He's even more beautiful than this in person! Melissa|
|Hey Roxanne: Great to hear from you. I just started class last week and Calli starts this week. She wants to play outdoors all the time. She snowmobiles with us too. I really want to bring her over to visit so let me know what days are best for you. Keep in touch. Karen|
|Hi Roxanne, I am so
sorry it has taken so long for me to get in touch with you
and send you a picture of Bella....We have been non-stop
since Bella arrived....I didn't even have time to do
Christmas Cards this year! (I did get a new camera for my
birthday in November, so when I finally figured out how to
get the pictures on our computer to send them out, the
holidays had passed). I've attached a copy of the picture
that we finally ended up sending out to friends and family
after the holiday rush had passed. Bella is doing
wonderful. She is a sweet girl and is loved by everyone! She
loves to snuggle and is perfectly content to lay with you in
the recliner and hang out. From the first week she came home
with us, we knew the recliner was going to become "her"
spot. As soon as she was able to jump up, she would sneak up
there as soon as she saw that it was empty. She is
definitely excited about all of the snow we've gotten and
loves to play outside with Norah, although she thinks that
the pompom on the top of Norah's hat is a snowball she can
tug on... Anyway, hope all is well up in Maine, and hope
Bella's mom and dad are doing well! Jen
|Roxanne, I just wanted to let you know Emmitt is doing great. He is well over 60 pounds and not even 6 months old yet. Everyone guesses he will be close to 100 pounds when he is done growing. He has also made is television debut already and will be one of the Golden faces of Downeast Toyota for years to come. We just finished basic obedience class with him and he did great. Generally the class is only offered to dogs 6 months and older, but Emmitt was able to start when he was only 4 months and was possibly the best student in the entire class. He catches on very quickly and I think he enjoys all the attention. Emmitt does fairly well with knowing what is his to chew on and what isn’t his, I did surrender a pair of old Crocs to him. There are times he forgets, but for the most part, he is doing really well in the house. He was house trained within 2-3 weeks of him coming home which was great. Emmitt has really been a great dog and I can only guess he will be even better as he gets older. Thank you, Jon and Kara|
|Hi Roxanne, Hope you and your family are doing great. Just thought we would send you a few photos of Baxter. He is doing really great and we are so happy to have him in our family. He is very social and gets a lot of attention wherever we go. He is almost 5 months now and we love him more and more every day. He likes to go to this one park near our house where he can run loose with other dogs, and you can be sure Baxter will introduce himself to every dog owner as well as every dog he meets. He is well adjusted to his crate and never fusses about that anymore. He does not like to go for walks on concrete (pavements) so we have to drive to a park every time we want to go for a walk, unless we just run with him in the back yard. He loves it when we chase him around and try to steal an empty gallon milk jug (one of his favorite toys) from him. We used to be able to trap him, but not anymore. He is too fast. Well we wish you a lovely holiday time and will keep you updated on Baxter. All the best, John & ToveLucas, Mikael and Emma|
|Hi Roxanne- How are you? Just wanted to let you know that Bean is the most amazing puppy I have ever had. He is so smart and well-adjusted. He is a social dynamo, kind, touch, sweet and brilliant. I think he speaks English. I have had many puppies ( our own and fosters) and never seen a boy as good as he is. You have done an unbelievable job at breeding the perfect dog! He is 100% house broken, does not chew anything that is not his, comes immediately when he is called, rides in the back of the car without trying to get in the front, sleeps peacefully on our bed each night without bugging us, goes right into his crate when asked, gets on his bed and “settles” when asked, lets me clean his ear and wipe the mud off his paws when necessary and is the most loving cuddle bug in the world. He is the light of our lives and we want to thank you so much! I have attached a few pictures. The ones of him with the lab was taken last week when I had a lab foster puppy for a week while she was waiting for her forever home which she went to Saturday. Boy was that chaos. The picture was what happened when I commanded them to ‘settle”. The black springer is our Missy- they both like to cuddle and sleep on my feet when we watch TV at night. Please feel free to use me as reference if ever necessary. Best, Lori|
|Hi Roxanne, Just wanted to send you a quick note that even though it has only been two weeks... we "love, love, love" our new puppy who has been named Brody. We spent the entire four hours from your home to our friends home in MA calling out names... and the boys came up with Brody so they can call him "Bro" for short (as in my "brother"). He is an absolute dream. He quickly adjusted to our home, the routine and is truly an instant part of our family. He went for his second round of shots on Friday... he now weighs 15.20 lbs. The vet said he is great... very healthy. They also tested a fresh stool sample for worms... the results came back on Saturday - no problems. I found it comforting that the vet also wanted and was glad that we were giving Brody the Scientific Puppy formula food. I've attached two photos from our first week with him. The first one is Patrick holding Brody after his bath which he really enjoyed. The other is Brody sleeping in the family room on his pillow with the cloth that his brothers played with before we took him. I took more pictures on Saturday as we were playing in the backyard (he runs sooooo fast) but haven't downloaded them yet. I will send them as soon as I can. The boys can't believe how fast he is changing. He is so great. I love his personality. He is definitely one of the family. I hope all is well for you. Talk to you soon. -Carolyn Jones|
