Thank you to all of our new "puppy people" we have met this year. We couldn't ask for better homes for our kids! It was a real fun year, and we have met many new friends....and thank you to all of our old ones also!!...I mean the families from before....not OLD ones...We love all your calls, emails and pictures! we just love the pictures and stories of the pups being bad!
Because we have Puppy people friends starting 34 years ago, every year we also have some of the not so happy emails telling us about our "kids" who have passed on. Trust me, they never go without tears, even here in front of my computer. I always go back and see the pictures of them as puppies. This year we saw 4 that were almost 15! We had 8 families come to get their 2nd, 3 rd and even 5th puppy from us!!! There is no greater feeling of success that when a family comes back for their next puppy! THANK YOU.
The last couple of years we have been working with people and groups who need service dogs. We have dogs that visit in hospitals, hospices, are companions for wounded soldiers, work at schools for autistic children, and family service dogs . I remember when I received the email from my friend in Boston with a picture of one of our dogs ...the two of them were at the memorial associated with the Boston bombings doing therapy work. The caption read "Breyer and myself listening to the bells chiming at the memorial"
These are REAL working dogs!
MAY THIS NEXT YEAR BE A REAL GOOD ONE FOR ALL OF YOU! BE HAPPY, HAVE FUN AND GIVE THOSE BROOMEACRES KIDS A KISS FROM US!!!!
HEATHER , DOUG AND THE OTHER KIDS HERE!!
It all started in a mall in Vancouver around 1963. I was 5 years old. There was a dog, a German Shepherd, and his name was “Littlest Hobo". I was there with my grandmother when we saw him. I turned to her and asked if I could get his paw print. Later as we were going home I told my grandmother that some day I was going to have German Shepherds……..
Wow, did I ever!
You can imagine how thrilled I was when my friend, Lynn, gave me the sign that hung on the fence of the owner and trainer of the littlest hobo's!! Yes, she lived right beside Chuck Eisenmann, owner and trainer of the Hobo's!!!! When Chuck moved he said he didn't want the sign, so Lynn's father took it. It was in their shop for many years. When she heard I loved the Hobo's she dug it out, along with pictures of the dogs in training!! The sign now hangs above my fireplace in the living room and reads:
LONDONVILLE...HOME OF THE HOBO'S
Thank you for your interest in our “kids” I have been lucky enough to have German Shepherds in my live since 1980.
My two daughters grew up with German Shepherds, and now my grand children. Just the other day I watched as my 4 year old grandson, Jesse, decided that "SWADE" (Slade) should go in a crate because Jesse wanted to play with his toys by himself. He called Swade, told him "crate" Slade went in, and Jesse closed the door! Jesse helps do the chores, has his very own pooper scooper and loves giving the dogs their "vitiiiimins"
I met my husband , Doug, in 1986 when he came to buy a puppy from me. Whow, talk about luck!! He loves German shepherds, kids, living in a "gated zoo community"...(hehe) and I got the puppy back!!!!
We have enjoyed many happy times with the dogs, and have gone through sad times together also.
