Hi Rhonda,
I just wanted to update you on Molly.  She is doing wonderful, and we love her soooooo much.  I was suprised to find how quickly we are becoming attached to her.  Even my husband who was reluctant about a dog let her sleep @ his feet last night.  If you knew this man you would realize what a miracle this was!
Thanks for bringing so much joy into peoples lives through your puppies!

Just wanted to thank you for our newest addition Izzy. She has already taken over our household and the girls absolutely love her. The first night she woke me 2 times and last night only one time. She really like to be with people. We will keep you updated as she grows. Thanks again.

Hi, Rhonda! 
It's been a while, so I thought I'd send a couple of updated Chloe pictures.  My little girl is all grown up now!  She weighs about 19.5 pounds, and she's as fast as lightening.  She loves going to doggy day care on Thursdays and doesn't even have time to look back and say goodbye to mom once we arrive...she's too focused on playing with her new friends!  As expected, she's quite pampered (I won't use the word "spoiled" just yet, but she's on her way).  Napping and playing are two of Chloe's favorite pastimes...ahhh, to be a dog!  :) 
The woman who owns Chloe's day care center raves about what a sweet dog she is.  She complements her temperament (especially versus some of the other Cockers she has handled).  From what they tell me, Chloe is friends with everyone there and she loves to play all day long.  The result is a very pooped pup on Thursday evenings and Friday mornings. 
In the attached picture of Chloe with her toys, she did that herself...she gathered her toys one at a time to play with them, then fell asleep with them when she was ready for a nap. 
I've said it before, but I'll tell you again...Chloe is the sweetest little girl!  I'm so happy that I found her and have her in my life. 
I hope all is well with you and the expecting moms (I periodically check your website for updates on your dogs). 
Take care, 
Brittany Crawford 



Adopted a buff female puppy on Nov. 25, 2007 and 1 year later on Nov. 30, 2008, this is an update........

Hi, Rhonda!

One year ago on a night very similar to this one (the Sunday after Thanksgiving, cold, wet, and rainy) we brought Butterscotch home to our family.  She is a wonderful dog-- very patient with the kids (especially Caelyn who  is the very definition of 2!) and HEALTHY!  She has been a wonderul  addition to our  home!

Thanks for a wonderful  pet!  I hope you get the picture OK.

Hi Rhonda

Just wanted to say Hi and give you an update on Bingo.

He's almost 6 months old and doing fine. The once "laid back pup" has  come into his own, and is so far from laid back :-)

Bryce adores him but the twins are still skitish around him - mostly  because he jumps up on them, but I am taking him to training classes  starting next week - so that will help.

Hi Rhonda!

We're happy to announce that Lexi (Lexus) is doing very well. You were so right though...she wouldn't have done so well to be shipped off alone to new owners. She was/is so shy. She wanted to stay in the kennel all the time. Actually, it took until Sunday late afternoon/early evening for her to eat anything. We were concerned, but knew that she was okay and that it would take some time for her to feel comfortable in our home.

She went to see her new vet yesterday. The appointment went very well. She weighs 18.5 pounds. She tested negative for worms and got her rabies shot. The vet said she was very healthy and a very nice dog! = )

We will keep you posted on her progress. She is a wonderful addition to our family. She is so loving and gentle. Such a sweetie!

Rhonda, just wanted you to see how cute our little boy is. He will be 5 months old this week, and he is the cutest thing ever! All boy, likes to get into trouble, but at the same time he is just as sweet as he can be and always wants to be in your lap, he can now get up on the furniture, takes a running leap from across the room and ends up in your lap. He really just wants to be close or touching all the time. We love him and cannot thank you enough for him.

Thanks so much, Susan and Dave S.

I wanted to email you and tell you that Eric is a wonderful puppy. He is so smart and intelligent. His tail seems to never stop wagging. He is a very merry cocker. Everything the breed standard calls for. He is elegant and dignified yet he can be a total goof-ball! LOL!

I love him with all of my heart. He is such a kind and loving soul. Thank you so much for the chance to live my life with him. Your dogs are such wonderful examples of the breed with wonderful temperaments. I know if I ever get another I'd like another one from you.

Thanks again-

I came across this poem on the internet and don't have a clue who wrote it but I think of my cockers when I read it and wanted to share it with you.......

My Heart Belongs To A Cocker Spaniel

Beautiful and intelligent,
A charmer from the start-
A Cocker Spaniel looked at me,
And quickly stole my heart.

Sharing life together,
Through good and bad times too-
You are the sunshine of my days,
So loyal and so true.

With eyes so warm and caring-
And love that never ends-

I can't imagine life without
My Cocker for a friend.

Hi Rhonda!

Robin thought you might like to see a couple more pictures of one of your boy's. Jaxon has really been a treat. He has a couple of bad habits, he pee's and craps on our concrete patio pretty frequently. And he barks quite a bit when we first come home and let him out of the kennel. But other than that he has really been a joy. He got snipped ( Neutered ) the Thurs. before 7/4/06. The vet told us to keep him calm and from jumping all over the place. Yea right! He truly is a crazy man. Almost every time Robin goes out he gets a new toy to play with. The (3) of them Maddie, Tyler and Jaxon have a pool for the summer. They don't go jumping in but they don't mind getting wet. We has a cook-out with some friend from Japan at the end of June. These are pictures of Jaxon at the party a few days before his big Thurs appointment. All is going we'll with Jaxon. Your welcome to stop by any time your down this way. Stay in touch!

Dave, Robin, Tim, Maddie, Tyler, and of course Jaxon!

Hi Rhonda,

This is Jennie Cook from Bath, NC. I bought a sable/white parti pup from you 2 years ago named "D&R's Smoky Mountain Bandit"  or "Sully" so we call him, and I thought you might want an update. I check your site often, you still have some beautiful cockers, I just love them all! Sully is still the light of my life! He is so sweet, a big cuddle bug, yet still loves to play as though he was a pup. Everyone that meets him loves him, and they love his coloring, as do I. He is so beautiful to me! I can't say enough about this wonderful boy! I noticed that you still have my first email I sent you posted on your website, so I thought I would send you an updated picture as well, if you would like to use it's fine with me. Hope all is well and you have a Merry Christmas!

Jennie... and Sully

Dear Rhonda,

Just a quick note to let you know how our little guy is doing. He is a delight! He's not quite housebroken but getting the idea. Sometimes Bob or I don't get to the door fast enough. He is eager to please, bright and just great fun and company. We had our first road trip last weekend and was a most welcome guest everywhere we went. He handled the six hour drive like a veteran traveler. We need to get some up dated pictures, but he is gorgeous.

Thanks for such a great puppy!

I purchased Chauncey from you on the 23rd of July. He is already spoiled rotten and I love him to death. He is very quiet and has been the best thing I could have ever done for my Yorkie puppy. Phoebe is 7 months old and they have a great time together and play constantly. As you can see in the pictures they are both about the same size right now. He loves my granddaughter too, he follows her around and they have even invented their own game of hide and seek. My granddaughter has never giggled so much as what she does now, it is really cute and fun to watch them together.

He definitely filled that void in my heart from losing my Coco. I am so very happy that I found him.

He has been to my vet and they just adore him, said he is a beautiful Cocker Spaniel. He also had an excellent bill of health.

I am attaching some photos that I just took last night, he is adjusting well with my entire family. I would like to get better shots of him but he is very busy and doesn't have time to pose for me.

Thank you so much, I will keep in touch and send you more photos as he grows.

Good Morning Rhonda,

I just want to give you a little update on Miss Rubi. She is doing great. She has developed such a personality. She is very headstrong and wants things all her way. We also think she has no idea of how small she is. She is always after our bigger dog. She has no fear. She is also so smart. Even though she still has a few accidents in the house she knows where the door is to go out. She loves being out in the backyard. We now have to chase her around to get her to come in.

We have taken new pictures and as soon as they are downloaded to the computer we will send you one.

Thanks again for such a wonderful little girl.

Hope all is well with you.

I am absolutely amazed at how much our puppy has grown and changed. Each week's photos look so different from the week before. I'm really glad you've given me week to weeks or I would wonder if he was the same puppy! This week, I do see the sabling you are talking about and a mustache I hadn't noticed before. I know human babies change that fast too, but I never cease to be amazed! And the group photo - well how in the world can you part with any of them?! They are all so precious! I don't know if I could send them away.

I know it must be difficult to give these puppies up. I promise to send you photos and stories of the antics that are sure to come. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to our new addition. Some folks get satisfaction from antiques, some from other hobbies, but we've always gotten more joy out of living things - especially our cockers!

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for filling our house w/joy and love again! Our anniversary is on the 15th. What a wonderful gift this puppy is - for all of us. You continue to impress me with your generous mails and photos. I'm blessed to know you!

I was glad to find that you have a webpage. Just dropping a note letting you know how happy our dog from you makes me!! I've clicker trained him to do quite a few tricks and agility maneuvers (we're currently working on the teeter totter, he doesn't like that one much :) I've considered showing him, however he doesn't have the attitude for it (we work on a show stack anyway) I keep him in full coat, and he's learned to enjoy his weekly grooming sessions, usually by snoozing. He's possibly even saved my life (literally, we had an attempted break in at my bedroom window while I was sleeping) With as much joy as he's given me, when my family recently discussed purchasing another puppy, you were the first person I thought of. It's quite a drive for us, however the quality of Toko has made our first trip well worth it.

I also include a couple pictures of Toko so you can see how handsome he has become.

Lakota is doing wonderful. In fact, you can add us to your satisfied customer page on your website. I cannot believe how socialized she is. She is fearless! She jumps off the couch and will climb about a 6 in. stairs. She may be little, but she wants everyone to know that she is a "big" girl. Lakota is really not afraid of any noises either. She's having fun playing with Cheyenne. Cheyenne made up to her the very next morning. She checked up on Lakota that night while she was sleeping. Now Cheyenne and Lakota are constantly playing. It's nice because Cheyenne makes a good babysitter. Lakota goes nonstop when she's awake. She's a busy girl. Of course, she is spoiled already. She has so many toys. We went out and bought some baby toys yesterday. I put in a busy, musical puppy thing in her crate. I almost snapped a picture of her playing with it, but she saw me and quit. As soon as I'm able to get that on the camera, I'll send it to you. Housetraining is OK. She's only had a few accidents. When she's awake, she'll go about every 20 min. We just love her so much.

Talk to you later,
