Updates on Sunray and Blaze

Sunray is now Bella and lives nearby. Here is what her family said about her recently:

Hi Jacqui!
Bella is doing great and has been a great addition to our family. She was at the vet yesterday and weighed 4.8 pounds. Michael has been teaching her how to play fetch, and she is learning it fast! She is a bit of a shoe thief, but she’s not very good at hiding them. They are always found under the lazy boy! I will send some pictures as soon as we get a new computer.
Take care!

No photos yet but I am hoping!

And here’s an update on Blaze, our tiniest one who is now Flash (after the superhero) and weighs a whopping 5.2 pounds!

Hi Jacqui,
Thanks for the microchip registry.  We received the hard copy, as well.

 Flash/Blaze is just a remarkable puppy!  I was at the vet on 10-12 and he weighed 5.25 pounds.  He’s growing quickly and doing so well!!  We are wondering if he might end up to be a bit bigger than we originally thought (which would be great with 3 kids in the houseJ).  He is FULL of energy and loves to play.  We’ve also discovered that he is extremely outgoing.  He loves attention and affection from anyone and everyone he meets…and of course he’s so sweet that they all love him right back!

I attached a few photos that I took this morning!!

I hope you are doing well!


Update on Georgie (now Brutus)

Hi Jacqui, hope you received my little video of Brutus. (It’s at the bottom of this post!)
I accidently touched the send button before I typed in the message. Just wanted to let you know how much he loves the blanket you sent home with him. My husband jokes that we should have called him Linus.

Brutus (Georgie) likes to be close to me, I was sitting at the table reading and he squeezed his little head between my foot and the bar on the chair and took a little nap.

Brutus was not very happy when I blocked him from the big rocks. Thank you for letting me know about the dangers of jumping when they are pups. I was going to ask the vet tomorrow when we go for our first visit with his new vet. I don’t know why I didn’t thinly to ask you if it could harm him.

 With the photo below she wrote:  It was definitely meant for us to have the biggest and not the smallest puppy from the liter. This was snapped just before we had a discussion on why little boy can not touch my puppy unless the are sitting on the floor with Aunt Shell next to them.

Two very happy smiles. These are the shots that warm my heart. 
When Brutus is not napping on the vent (which we closed off so he won’t get sick from air blowing directly on him) he enjoys napping on his place mat.

Update on Boomer

For those who may not remember, Boomer was one of the two puppies I had to bottle feed because he was so small. Not so anymore!!! Here is a report and photos from his new family.

Hi Jacqui!
I wanted to give you a little update on Jackson (aka Boomer)! He is doing GREAT!  We can’t believe we got so lucky to have such a good little puppy!
He is growing so much and at his last Vet visit weighed in at about 4.5 lbs!  He has completely adjusted to the routine at our house and has even learned a few little tricks!
His latest is ringing the bell at the back door everytime he needs to take a potty break outside (Yea! No more accidents in the house!) Right off the bat we were able to teach him to fetch (his favorite game to play) and last week he learned to “sit” and “shake” on command!  He can follow with the leash and is learning to stay in the yard… Such a smart boy!
Our favorite time with him is after Logan goes to bed and he gets some quiet couch time with Joel and I and lot’s of extra snuggles…. 
He’s so sweet and loves to play… doesn’t chew on much (other than his toys) and is definitely my little shadow during the day when it’s just him and I. Everyone who meets him is smitten and I’ve passed out your website/blog to a few people like us who may be looking for a puppy in the future!
 We are so happy with him!
Hope everything is going well,
Enjoy the pictures!


Havanese Puppy Update: Storm

Storm left with her forever home on Sept. 14 when she was 9 weeks old. She is one of Phoebe’s puppies with a spunky personality and a passion for giving lots of kisses. A Canadian citizen now, here are some of Storm’s family’s comments about her. And, yes, they decided to keep her name as it pretty much describes her personality!

Well, she is still doing great.  Had a perfect visit to the vet today.  Barely even barked at the shot she got.  The vet used to live in Michigan and volunteered with the Havanese Rescue Society.  He was so happy to see her as he says we just don’t see this type of dog around here.  That made me feel good that he was so familiar with the breed.

She weighed 3.1 pounds so is definitely growing.  We go back in a month again for more shots.

She loves to run and play several times a day and then sleeps like a baby after.  She has slept through the night once but usually gets up once or twice still.  Not too bad.  She goes right back to sleep with no issues after she wakes.

I haven’t taken any pictures at the winery yet but here are a couple from our house.

She is a precious little girl.  | have completely fallen in love with her.  My husband who grew up with larger farm dogs plays with her all night when he gets home from work.  She really likes him and goes nuts when he gets home.

We are having 6 people over tomorrow for a birthday party so we will see how she does with so many around her.

Will update more later.
