little baby is great!!!! We have named him
ASH....the name reminds us of his great
coloration. He was wonderful on the trip
home....he slept most of the way, we couldn't
believe it. He is wonderful, gentle and super
smart. He is almost house-broken already. We
just love him. Thank you again for everything.
We'll send you some photos as soon as we get
question....for his registration name, should we
end the name with 'Bruin'?
you soon.....Greg, Jean, Max, Maggie and Ash
Hope all is well. Just thought
we'd bring you up to date on the pup. He is
perfectly healthy and growing like crazy, about
fifty some pounds at this very moment. He,
Steiner that is, is absolutely gorgeous. He's very
reddish with markings on his chest and tail and some
black starting to show on his back. See pictures,
they're taken at 10 weeks. He's now going to puppy
kindergarten and we are all learning a lot. The
course is thru Petsmart and held in the store, in
the dog food isle, strange I thought, but it will
do. We are extremely happy with this dog, so far he
is everything I'd hoped for, and then some.
That's all for now, let me know if you got the
Just a little update........ Willow has settled in
nicely to her new home. She is extremely playful.
She is doing very well with the crating and sleeps
soundly at night unless she has to go out. She was
checked out by the vet last week and got the "thumbs
up!" She's due for more shots the end of the month.
We are using a wonderful traveling vet which is so
convenient. Well the kids are up from napping so I
have to go. I will try to get the puppy film
developed this week so that I can send you some
pictures for your web site.
doing great. He is very special Shelly and has a
wonderful temperament. I love him. He is
absolutely the best puppy. Thank you for doing
such a great job.
My son Tyler and
I took turns staying with him last night on the
kitchen floor. This morning we did
introductions with my Old
and Boxer Sami. Bo and he are perfect together!
Bo is gentle and
they really "recognize" each other and the breed
They go in and out
of the house together now and Seb is doing his
business outside very, very well for the first
went good with the new litter! I didn't sleep
last night and I am positive you probably never
Take care and

Just a quick note to let you know
that the puppy' name is Innish and is doing great.
She loves to play, is very good with my baby which
makes me happy. My family just adores her and
she adores them. She is getting big, her
weight on March 1st was 33 pounds. Ears are
good, coloring is getting darker all the time.
Her temperament is just Beautiful! I sure it
will carry on.
visited Steve and his awesome King puppy!!!!
Steve mentioned you said our King puppy has been
excited.......is it true? We really love the
Steve's puppy....he is so good, gentle, smart
etc......we really can't wait....talk to you
. . .Bianca's back is now even
with the top of our dining table. The table is
27" tall. That was Elsa's (the leonberger)
height at a year, but King's grow more quickly I
think. She is only 80 pounds --very thin-- but
is starting to fill in a little. She just shot
up so quickly. Her coloring looks much like
Dara on your web site. . .I have to inspect her
every couple of days to see what is different!
I will tell you this one thing. . .she grows more
beautiful by the day. It is truly astonishing
and I am so very grateful to you. I can't wait
for you to see her again- -maybe the Spring
Bianca is the first dog we have
had with erect ears. had no idea how much that
influences a dog's expression. I could go
through a whole role of film every time I talk to
her as she swivels her ears and cocks her head to
one side and then the other. I have also never
had a dog that watches my face so intently.
Elsa or Cerri (or any of the other dogs I have had)
will raise the back of the ear, to bring the ear
leather forward, and their eyes follow me; But
Bianca's whole body seems to come to attention when
I talk to her. And the face and head are
just incredible. You can see the intelligence
radiating from her.
I still love and adore my Leo
girls. . .that won't ever change. But I can't
be exclusive anymore. I am so glad that I
tried the King, because it definitely seems that
there can be more than one breed for me.
Thanks again! and enjoy the pictures. I'll
send more as I get them.

Thank you for the beautiful
card of your family at Christmas - hope you all had
a wonderful holiday. Here are pictures of our
boy Zeus. As you can see he has taken over my
husband's chair and watches TV with us! My
brother and his family were up from Florida for
Christmas and fell in love with Zeus. Just
couldn't believe how big and sweet he was! My
parents were also here and my dad is not in the best
health. While Zeus would rough-house with
everyone else, he just stood next to my dad to be
petted. It's amazing how they sense those
things. I am working with him to become a
service dog to visit hospitals and nursing homes
etc. He's 10 months old and weighs 115
Thank you again for sharing
such a wonderful breed of dog with us. He's
the best! Congrats to Bustah on his being
