Dugan is doing GREAT and is adored and admired wherever he goes. He is frequently at soccer practice surrounded by 15 9-year-old girls, all oooohinh and ahhhing and petting him. When I am working from home, he is usually asleep on the couch touching my arm. He is doing great going to work with my husband and his coworkers are bummed when Dugan isn't there. He has clocked in a couple days at puppy daycare when we could not work out our schedules and they love him there, too!
He is doing well at puppy kindergarten (socialization and simple exercises like sit or recall with two people) and has also met a lot of friends dogs--including an Irish Wolf Hound who is afraid of him. What people say to us usually is "He's SOOOOOO cute." always followed by, "What a mellow, incredible puppy. Is he always this calm? He's a GREAT puppy!" And we say, "Yes, he is!"
My husband would like to add a black lab to our family in a year or so, so if you have any leads on a good breeder or hear of anyone who needs to rehome an older dog, too, please keep us in mind!
Right after I typed that I looked at your website--OH MY GOODNESS I saw MAJOR. We are not in the market right now, unfortunately, but that's exactly what we have in mind! Please do keep us in your thoughts and on your list should another chance like that come up in the spring or later!
Our sweet, sweet boys Bogart and Bond found a wonderful new home ~
She (Baby) is an absolute delight! She has traveled all over the US and loves it! So sweet, loves attention, loves to play fetch and wants us to chase her! They are the absolute best breed to own...and no bark!! Love her to pieces!..if I just had to pick something about her is she loves to lick..ALOT!!....LOL.
Just like our Labs... Cresteds LOVE a good adventure!
..."Just wanted to check in with you and let you know the boys (on right Beau and Chase) are doing great. We took them camping this weekend and they did so well. No leashes or tethers needed, they happily hiked around with me on more challenging trails, and with the girls on the easier one. We really had a great time, though we learned that we should always bring a brush on any outdoor excursions"...
~ Bailey's New Best Friends ~
... "He is such a delight... We all love him. Priya was so apprehensive and now she is crazy about him! Name is 'Bruno'
I have never got so many thanks in my life from kids than I am getting now. Thanks so much..."
...."Hope all are well and that spring has sprung for your area.
I want to say thank you very much for Bo.
He is loved by all who meet him, he's lovable, likable,
beautiful, handsome, and he is, his own character!
Thank you to you and your mom and all...!
Both Boys have...."A New boy to LOVE!!"
We LOVE you Nan!!! It was SO good to see you again and sweet little Trixie-Boo! I know you are going to LOVE your new addition to your family...Francesca.
"Nash is doing great! He really is a dream dog. Teddy bear temperament for sure! Everywhere we take him, people gush over him and can't believe he's so mellow and well behaved for a 6 month old Lab. We couldn't be happier with him."
Since she (Stella) loves the toilets so much, I have been documenting her growth with toilet pictures, and I'll have a slide show at some point Amy, you have no idea how much I love this dog. She is the sweetest and calmest puppy I've ever encountered. I suspect there's a price paid in lack of interest in retrieving, but maybe your dogs have developed that later? I'd be interested in hearing about that. I may make some more videos of her, including her doorbell trick, and feel free to share any you like. I'm hoping that we can bring her by to visit you all sometime. Jon
...."Just wanted to let you know that Bash made it home (Kuwait) finally I've seen my boy in real. He's doing great and so excited to meet the kids, he's so adorable!".....
(️Their wonderful father... flew to the States to pick up their new family member)
Bash is growing up and SO handsome!!!
Life is BEST if you have someone to snuggle with ~
Now this is one VERY pampered pooch (just how we like to see them),
Bella, aka Honey ~
.... I thought it was about time I send you an e-mail update and some photos of my beautiful boy Dutch! He is now 7 months+ and weights in at around 72 lbs. He is such a sweet boy and really, really good! He’s mellow but has all the puppy spunkiness still and very smart. He adores my 91/2 yr old lab Bono and Bono has slowly warmed up to Dutch. I couldn’t have asked for a better puppy and that face on him … so cute! He didn’t become the terror I thought he might be - remember I wanted the pup with the green collar? LOL We took a road trip to Yosemite with him back in February and he was great - loved the snow too. He crate trained and potty trained easily. He likes his crate and will often go in to sleep on his own. He loves to talk - very vocal when he wants something and is proving himself to be a good guard dog - even if it’s just barking at his own reflection!! We have affectionately nicknamed him the “Gardner” because he loves to tear off large Bird of Paradise leaves and bring them into the house!! He loves bringing all kinds of garden items into the house and the messier the better!!
Thank you so much for an amazing puppy - I just love him so much.....
Hunter and Grandma Indy
Hi Amy- thought you'd get a kick out of a picture of the birthday girl. She's still the queen of the house. It cracks me up she most definitely prefers mike. I get some love but not much if he's home. Hunter is getting so big he's our resident goof. Hunter has never had a bad day if he can't find trouble he'll invent it. He's so tall and the most lovable lab we've ever had. Boom is our big boy he and Hunter do not like to be apart for even a minute best friends for sure. Thank you again for completing our family. Hope the family is well this Independence Day. Love, The Waldings
Jordan and Summer... the start of a lifelong wonderful friendship!!!
Elsie with her new family in Sun Valley & California
"Oh Amy, we are sooooo in love with this dog, (Elsie) she is a dream dog. She was perfect on the drive here (CA) and loves her new house. Opens doors to go in & out, hanging out in the yard, lots of new friends. She sleeps in her kennel in our bedroom. Brad is so crazy about her, takes her on a play walk and a discipline walk. She is doing SO well. Most amazing dog in the world. Seriously, we adore her... we do.

Sisters Frannie and Charlie on some of their fun outdoor adventures
"...I wanted to give you an update on Hunter... He's probably the sweetest puppy you'll ever meet. Our grandkids adore him and he's so good with them even at 6 months.
He has a big brother Boomer and they are fast friends. Thank you for letting us add one of your Legacy puppies to our family."
He "Zeus" (Bella/Brody) is almost 1 year old and I wanted to share some pics with you. He is a wonderful crazy dog and I love him dearly.

Christmas Loot for one of our puppies "Ranger".... Now that is one VERY spoiled boy!
Our kids didn't even get that much!!!
We thought you might enjoy some recent pictures of Ranger! He's 31 lbs now, growing like a weed, he loves everyone and has never met a stranger (dog or person) that he didn't become friends with.
On a sunny walk, still getting used to a collar and leash. He's an excellent off leash walker!
He loves going to work with Dad everyday and is a great car rider!
Here he is roughing it on his first camping trip in his new camp trailer.
He found the mud on his first trip to the lake, also his first swimming adventure! He's a great swimmer, just waiting for the water to warm up a bit! He's already potty trained, and uses his doggie door like a pro! He sits and shakes for a treats too! He's a happy, loved boy!! Thank you! Gwen and Heath
We got Lilly (Tori's horse) from Jim and Patty and they got a new puppy "Oliver" from us!
Rendition of families first few days with new puppy
Amy, Day 1: I can finally give you a report, as Cormack just collapsed on the floor and fell asleep. He had a great first day with us. It's like having a new baby!! Luckily I fell right back into mommy mode. He got a bit livelier as the evening went on last night after we got home from picking him up. Tom’s sister and our niece came over to meet him and just couldn't get over how sweet he is. We brought the crate up to our room for him to sleep in, but he became very agitated, panting very fast. He was tossing around and banging against the sides almost as if he were having a panic attack, (he never whined or cried though). So, I got him out and put him in bed with us. It took a little while, but he eventually became calmer and flopped out. His favorite position! I swear he can stretch out to 5 feet! At 3:28 a.m., he was in my face with the fast panting again. I said "Tom, this dog needs to pee". Tom got him out of bed, and sure enough he peed all over the floor. I mopped up while Tom took him out. Back to bed; he was so happy and immediately flopped out and was asleep. We all slept soundly until the birds starting singing around 7:00. Today he ate, drank, pooped, peed, chewed, ran, licked, napped, ate a cucumber out of the garden, had some carrots for a snack, chased balls, went for a walk on the leash and was very well behaved with our cat Hobbes. I think they will be good buddies eventually. Today they napped within two feet of each other for a couple hours. He mostly follows us and rarely explores more than a couple feet away. He likes to drink out of the fountain and just climbed all the way in tonight. He then wanted to play tug-o-war with the towel. He was very shy of the stairway last night, but was fine today. I picked up a jumbo size container of Natures Miracle, as I think I'll be needing it! If you have any good tricks for quick potty-training, please send them! I will send some pictures of Cormack's adventures this weekend. Warmly, Patricia
Day 3: No surprise, you are absolutely right. He had one tough night and has been perfect since. The second night I tried habituating him to the crate by throwing a toy in and letting him retrieve it and come back out several times. At bedtime he went in with a little help, and settled right down to sleep. I read that a rule of thumb for puppies to hold their bladder is 1 hour/ month of age, so we set our alarm for 4:00 and took him out to potty. He came back in and slept in his crate until morning; same last night. He had no accidents all day yesterday and just a little one this morning that was my fault. We are watching him closely and take him out every time he starts to wander aimlessly rather than focusing on us or the cat. Each time, he does in fact need to potty. As I told you, we had planned a visit with our good friends' dog, Cambria who's a ten-month old Golden Retriever, as a low-key way to begin Cormack’s socialization. Yesterday he got up at 7, ate at 8, fell asleep outside by 8:30, slept til Tom woke him at 3 to eat again. He followed Tom around outside for about 30-40 minutes tops, and slept until our guests arrived! I think he's exhausted just by growing! It was VERY interesting to see him interact with another dog. First he was submissive, but then it seemed he realized, "hey, this is my turf" and started trying to manage her with herding and warning barks. He let her know all the toys were his and that we are his people! Then they played for about 45 minutes. Our friend took his dog back home so we could have some human time. Cormack was a star. His excellent breeding is so apparent. He hung out with us all evening, lying quietly while we had dinner and then slept by the fire with us while we talked. Our friends were most impressed with his beauty and amazing poise for a young puppy. We are very puppy proud!! We are going to bring him up to swim in their salt water pool this week with their dog. That should be a blast to watch. I am going to look for some local puppy obedience classes this week so that we can continue to socialize him and teach him some basic commands. Thank you again Amy. We are so grateful that we found you and our perfect puppy. Here is a picture from yesterday. Kindest regards, Patricia
Lexi is such a .....
I wanted to give you a quick update on Lexi (Elle and Brody's baby). We have had her for over a year now and she is the most wonderful dog in the whole world. She is kind, gentle, playful and so loving. She has a bit of a naughty streak in her and we love that about her.
I wanted to thank you for giving us this lovely creature who brings love and joy into our lives every single day.
Attached are some pics of Lexi all grown up. She is a year and 3 months but to me, she's still a baby and will always be one
"I just wanted to let you know
Ollie is amazing. We are crazy
about him and he is such a
good boy. He housetrained
so fast, crates beautifully,
goes everywhere with us
and is just a delight...
We think he's the best dog ever!!"
Holly and Ava have a new home to explore in New Jersey ~

They are always next to me and follow me wherever I go."
"The pups are doing great!! Hope you all are, too... We can't imagine our family without these super sweet dogs. They're amazing!"
"I just wanted to pop in and say hello. Here are three pictures I recently took of Bailey.
The one at the beach we took this morning... She is doing wonderful... we could not have asked for a more perfect dog!!!"

Hi Amy! I hope all is well with you and your family!
I have been meaning to send some pictures of our little princess,
but I always get busy with one thing after the other.
Bow is growing BEAUTIFULLY!!! She weighs over 20 pounds already.
We take her running and she is very fast! A handful for sure! Extremely playful and very sweet!!
"We love him so much! He is a great retriever and loves diving
and swimming for tennis balls in the pool. We have nicknamed the pool "Lab Lagoon" :)
Today he slept next to me on the couch for a short nap.
Wish I had a picture. I think he's part human!...The two them are having so much fun together!!!!
Little Bear likes to dive in the pool and swim with me!..
Little Bear weighed in at 44 pounds yesterday at his vet appointment.
He's a healthy, gorgeous puppy!!!! We love him so much and so does everyone who sees him!!! . "
Girls LOVE puppies... I know, I have a few of them!
"Here's some more pictures of "Baby Boy" aka Paco. He's turned into a very beautiful dog!"
Paco at his new home in Puerto Rico
....."About two months ago Lyndsey was walking Paco in dorado Puerto Rico when she came across a nice couple that stopped her to admire and play with our boy. They got to talking, and mentioned they had a puppy on the way shortly as well (this was in April). After some more chatting, she realized that they were getting a dog from you guys! They were down in Puerto Rico looking at moving to the same neighborhood we live in. They were so thrilled to get a preview of what their dog may look like. Very small world.
Hope all is well with you guys. Here's a few recent pictures of Paco for you during our hike of the rain forest. We get stopped all the time by people to tell us how beautiful of a dog he is"...
Flash is amazing, seriously I can not express enough what an incredible boy he is. He's a big boy, I'm guessing 100 plus. He has an incredible personality He is really sweet and very very smart. He loves to carry things in his mouth. He often pulls a bath towel or kitchen towel down and carries it around and will make sure that everyone in the house at the time see's what he has. If I'm in the kitchen he will stand up to the kitchen counter nudging me so that I see what he has, its rather comical. He loves loves loves toys and him and Belle (my black lab) play tug of war alot. I will tell you my vet wants to steal him lol. He is everything I dreamed he would be!!!! I have several pictures on my phone and will try and send later. We just opened up our second restaraunt so we didnt get to boat as much as we hoped this summer. Flash did go once. Of course he loved the water and was such a good boy on the boat. I also need to add that he loves to lay on me. We have taken a few selfies together, Ill see if I can find one to send. He likes to lay his head on mine, such a lover and so cuddly!!! Hope your family is well. Did you have any litters this year or any planned for the future?
"Just wanted to send a note that we love, Love, LOVE our pup, who we named Otis, and is the greatest dog in the world... He has always been accused of being "mellow" and polite and was best in show at obedience class... Truly, a wonderful boy!!"
It was good to hear from you. I intended to contact you much sooner. The summer has gone so fast. Chief is doing great. We absolutely love him. He has the sweetest disposition. He loves people. He goes with Tom everyday to work and he goes with us to baseball games. We've decided he's the best dog in the world. Lol.
We named him Chief. Josh loves taking him on runs at night. He is a perfect fit for our family. Chief likes fetching toys. He rubs them up against your leg until you throw it for him. Over and over :). Finally he gets tired out :). He's been through three ducks.
He has all his shots now and is still on the same puppy food that you suggested which I believe makes his coat beautiful. We've been getting him the bones that you suggested on your website. He LOVES those. Let me know if you have any suggestions for us.
I'm sorry it's taken so long to respond. We think often of you all and how you and Chief's family are doing. :)
We have signed up for puppy training classes in November. Here's a few pictures for you.
Thanks again for an awesome puppy with an excellent temperament. Now I know what you meant by a teddy bear temperament. We are all amazed at how calm and sweet Chief is.

Bailey with her new friend ~
I'm so happy that I was blessed to get one of her (Elle) puppies. Flash is really the most incredible boy. The vet and employees cant believe what an incredible personality he has. Last visit he was 92.5lbs. He is a snuggler. He likes to lay his face on mine when he sleeps. He is extremely smart and training has been a breeze. He also likes to carry things around in his mouth and is very very proud no matter what it is. He is a counter surfer and likes to grab my dish towels and then prance around the house with his head high and makes sure that you see. He gets bath towels and drags them around the house like Linus from Charlie Brown. Unfortunately, my black lab Belle is determined to shred any toys we get no matter what its made from. We think she has a bionic jaw, really, she rips apart toys they say cant be lol. So I pretty much just let Flash have his towel. He is very proud of it. Chip is 11 1/2 now. Gosh I'm so blessed to have him still. I think Flash brought some spunk back to him!!! As soon as I can get some pictures of Flash uploaded I will send you some. He is very very handsome and his personality is just incredible.
"With our granddaughter Annabelle (who was bitten by a dog when she was one). Obviously... Savannah is her new best friend... I thought it was important for you to know how much our Savannah is loved and such a gentle doggie....Annabelle calls her her buddy"
~ Murphy ~
"He's a joy to have with a great personality...
though definitely starting to feel his oats!
He loves to dig and enjoys biting the heads off
of the girls' barbies every now and then.
The fun of puppies! Such a good boy in general though,
so mellow and easy going...he's growing like crazy (50 lbs now)
and has finally lost most of his puppy teeth!
He's doing great and is the coolest puppy I've ever known.
So mellow but still with some spunk that keeps us busy. So cute.."
We have Murphy from the January litter of BrodyxHolly.
He is such an awesome puppy and we could not be happier. He gets compliments all the time from being such a good looking dog to the most laid back, mellow puppy.
I am having a hard time remembering his birthday though!!
We can't remember if it's the 13 or the 15th. He really is a fantastic dog. His nickname is Murphmellow, since he is so laid back and gentle. We are so lucky to have him as our dog!
Thanks so much!
Happy 2nd Birthday
Picking out her
I'm getting so big!!! I'm just over 20lbs now! I am still a huge biter and jumper but we are working on that! :)
Also, I don't like to sleep. Ever! It's all play - all the time - even at 3am! :)
I can sit, come, stay & lie down though, so I'm pretty smart! I'm learning to walk on a leash and I walk about a mile everyday with my mom. I'm really happy here & I am incredibly loved! :) I hope everyone back there is doing great. I'm sending puppy kisses.
Suzanne with her sweet, sweet new Trouble puppy....Sean! She had a LONG flight...but I think he made it all worth it ~
