Our Cavalier puppy Simba (main character, Lion King) is 100% healthy! Doing great! I'll keep you posted. He's getting along well with Tinkerbell (cat) and Ferb (terrier). T.S.
Hi Mary Ann,
I just wanted to update you on how Romeo Ayres is doing. He may just be one of the most loved puppies ever! He goes with us most everywhere and loves sleeping on our laps, if not in his crate. (He's napping on my lap as I write now.) He is running more and loves going outside (when it's not raining like today). How thankful we are for a mild winter! A few weeks ago we took him on his first car trip - 4 hours to Gatlinburg. He did amazingly well!
We live just two blocks from the kid's school, so he frequently goes with me for drop-off and pick-up - and of course all the kids and parents and other dogs LOVE to see him! So he is certainly getting socialized. We have taken him to our local dog park and will do so more when he gets bigger. He has all of his shots up to date and the vet office is so excited when he comes in. Kenny Chesney and Kelly Pickler also take their pets there : ) Our plan is to wait as long as we can before getting him neutered. The vet said it would be best to wait after he is fully grown and his growth plates have closed. She says it makes for a healthier dog. So of course we will do everything we can for that!
Romey is very smart. He rings a bell every time he needs to go outside. We chose to feed him Origin food, which is a good, meat-filled kibble and we still mix it with the same kind of good food you gave us. Oh, and of course, his favorite chew toy is the bully stick!
The crate training has been super. We also had a pack-n-play set up for him until a few days ago. Now that he's good with the bell-ringing to go outside, I let him roam a bit more on our main level. I will start him in an obedience training class next week where he will learn to walk on a leash and he will learn commands like drop-it and stop.
We are getting landscaping done around our house and he had fun tramping around in the mud a few days ago. So, into the bath he went!
Thank you again for our new family member. I tell everyone about how wonderful you are and how wonderfully you do with breeding amazing cavaliers! J.A.
Here are what some of our puppy owners have to say!!..........
Mary Ann, I wanted to update you this morning on Buster. He is fitting right in with the family. He and Daisy play together, eat together and even nap together. Daisy plays the part well as big sister by keeping Buster in line and teaching him the ropes. Both our Cavs have brought us so much joy.
Thank you again! Kreis Family
Daisy 1.5 years old
Buster 4 mo old
Dear Mary Ann, I can't begin to tell you how much joy "Cooper" has brought me. I've been widowed for almost three years now and Cooper has filled a void in so many ways.He stays right with me constantly. What a wonderful companion. Cooper is smart as he can be. He learns fast. At 4 1/2 months he sits, down, turns around, rolls over and sits pretty (begging).He has lots of energy and at the same time is very, very affectionate. Owning Cooper is like a dream come true. He's everything I've always wanted in a pet. I've raised Poodles, Norwegian Elkhound and Yorkies. None of these breeds compare to my little "Cavie". Best regards,Gloria N.
We had Cooper groomed on Thursday. I just wanted you to see this precious boy of Goldenway's Lil Baby Girl and Goldenways Tiger at Tyco Ranch. Cooper is doing great. He is sooooo smart. He's is such a joy! Just wanted to share, so you know how he's doing.Karen M.
Sawyer turned 1 yesterday! He is the most handsome, sweetest dog :) he has filled out nicely. Weighing 18.6 lbs. I'll send a few more recent pictures. Thought you might want to see. Thank you again...
He's the best! :) D.S
Hi Mary Ann, hope you're doing well! I am so impressed with you and your outstanding puppies! I have had Piper for almost 2 months and it has been pure bliss. Your paperwork you provided me with for AKC & her family history dating 5 generations has helped put any fears I had to rest. Her vet is amazed with what a healthy spunky puppy she is! And her heart sounds perfect, which is always a concern he has with cavaliers. She is the most beautiful and kind baby and such a happy addition to my family. I hope you continue on the cavalier family so one day if Piper needs a sister or brother I know who I'll be coming to! Thank you so much again,
