Sitting on the Dock of the bay watching tide roll away....a letter from Conch the Dock pup.
Dear Mr. John,
My family thought you'd like to see some pictures of how big I'm getting. I'm really loving
my new surroundings where I have all the shade and room to run I could ever want. So far I've not been out of there sight
since I've been home. I've been boating, swimming, going to the office and other fun stuff. I'm sleeping great and getting
good at going outside when I have to use the potty.
I've really impressed everyone I've meet with my studly good looks and demeanor. They are amazed
that I've learned to sit on command. I hope all my brothers are enjoying life as much as I am. The doctor says I'm darn near
perfect as does mommy and daddy but you knew they would all say that. Tell my mom thanks for giving birth to me and I want
to thank you for taking such good care of me for the first 8 weeks of my life. Your the best and if your ever in Maryland
come see me for a boat ride and steamed crabs.
John,Conch is doing great and the funniest thing is he made it all the
way from November to February before he realized the pool cover lets all the water up if he walks on it. He goes in 2 to 3
times a day even though its 45 degree water and today we had unexpected snow and he did his own polar bear plunge. What a
great dog. Hard to believe he’s a year old.
It was good visiting with you yesterday morning. I originally had some worries about the return flight
home, but they were quickly put to rest. The trip back to Dallas was a memorable experience. Everyone, including the
TSA security people, flight attendants, pilots, and fellow passengers wanted to pet and see the puppy. Even though the
airline has rules about actually keeping your pet in the carrier, I must admit that I stretched the rules a bit and left the
top open and kept the carrier in the space in front of my seat. Maddie poked out her head and was licking my hand in
between taking naps. It gave us quality time to bond.
home, family and friends were waiting to celebrate the new arrival. She didn't disappoint. She is so cute and sociable and
obviously adores the attention.
Looking forward to send
you updates in the future.
I just wanted you to know that our puppy arrived safely today! He did great with
the whole flying thing and has taken so quickly to our family. Our 5 year old lab is crazy about him so that is just awesome
for us since it was our biggest concern. He is already eating and playing and getting into everything... Oh, and loves to
have his picture taken! It is so funny!! I will email you some new pics this weekend. Thank you again for everything.
He is so beautiful and so much fun!!
and Amy and family
just wanted to let you know that the puppy arrived safely to Orlando. We named him Stormy after his dad. Thank you so much
for your diligence and information on the care of the puppy. He is so calm, and you were right about him being a big white
fluff ball. We suprised the kids last night, and I know he will be an excellent addition to are family.

I was walking on the beach in Carlsbad, CA today and met one of your pups. Her name is Sandi and
she is six months old (I hear she has a sibling in the neighborhood named Hollywood). I am a true dog lover to begin
with but other than my pup, this was the most beautiful, playful and sweet pup I have met in a long time. My Lhasa Apso
is 16 ½ and in good shape. She has been the light and heart of my life and I know I will have to replace her
someday in the not too distant future. I thought I would stick with that breed because I have been SO lucky with her
for so long but after meeting Sandi this morning….I think I just might write you at some point and talk to you about
a Golden…. Keep up the good work..I can tell you are a breeder to be trusted.
to drop you a quick note and let you know how well our puppy is doing. He is not much of a puppy any longer. Griffin
is a big guy and doing great. All our kids love him and worship him. I told you my son Jake just loves dogs and
takes great care of Brutus our other golden but he has also really take to Griffin and the two of them are best of friends. He
listens well and plays great with the kids and other dogs. I can’t thank you enough. Thanks again
for your help and down the road maybe we can get another one from you.
Jackie and Storm boys.
from Rhode Island. It is hard to believe that the boys are 7
1/2 months already. They are such great
dogs, we feel really grateful
they are part of our family. Finn is really smart and much like his
Jackie. He has figured out how to open the screen door for
himself and his brother. He also knows how
to open our front gate, so we
had to put a fastener on it to "Finn proof it".
Dodger is such
a sweetheart and wins over everyone he meets. He also
likes to chase the rabbits and birds and is very fast
They both love the water and are swimming regularly. We had them on
boat outing this weekend and they both seemed to enjoy it.
We just got home with our new family member and she's just perfect. We are playing out in
the backyard right now and she is very happy and sweet! She loves chasing kylan around and has taken to him already. ;)
Thanks so much,
Kelly, Carlsbad Ca
John, thanks for calling back. The vet had great things to say about
you and you have great dogs. This vet we interviewed and may go with was pretty good. Asked great questions and
was very impressed with Mirabelle (calling her that right now). She has really settled and is totally comfortable with
a magnificent disposition. Chewing a bit, but to be expected.We’ll continue
to call if we have questions. We love her and she is just fantastic!
Thanks much! Charlie
Hi John, We adore our puppy!!! He is so wonderful!!! I am taking him to vet
tomorrow for his 10 week check up. I am attaching a picture of our Bear. My friend has a store and we took
pics of Bear in front of one of her decorated Christmas trees. I think we may use it for our Christmas card!!!
Thank you for everything. As the vet said he is just about perfect! He was amazed at him! He said where
did you ever find such a beautiful dog! He is so smart...already knows how to sit on command and lay down! We are working
on shaking paws now but don't have that mastered yet. I hope all is well.
Thanks again, Sandy
Maddie is doing wonderful. Took her to have her
picture taken with Santa. I will put one in the mail for you. We are supposed to hear back from Mercedes
Benz sometime at the end of the week. Of course, if she is chosen, then I will send you the advertisement with pictures/video.
You would be so proud of her. She knows sit, stay, leave it. Last vet check up she weighed 29 pounds. She
is growing like a weed. Mostly all legs. Beautiful doesn’t even describe her, John. I could stare at her
all day. I think I told you Saturday’s are our day. We go to the beach in the morning, (when is she going
to learn she will never catch the sand pipers (little birds that run along the water), where she runs none stop, then, we
go to breakfast, where everyone knows her. She actually sits in her own chair, where we eat outside (makes her feel
important). Then off to Petco to buy a new toys. She absolutely fell in love with my son, who came home for Thanksgiving,
to the point of me saying “when do you go back to school”, he just laughed and said “whats the matter mom,
a little jealous are we?

Marlie a female from Wallace.
as expected Marlie has progreesed nicely. My wife has photos on her phone that I will pass along today or wednesday. Yesterday
she had her 3rd round of shots. Marlie is getting along great with Charlie, our 14 wek old Shih Tzu, surprising how Marlie
holds her weight back from crushing the little one. The vet said Marlie has a great disposition and I agree. She is 30 lbs.

John, Just a quick
note to let you know how pleased we are with our Starr Golden’s pup. I knew from the pictures and speaking
with you that we were going to get a beautiful dog. What I didn’t expect was such a well socialized and
friendly pup! His disposition is remarkable as he is probably the sweetest dog I’ve ever been around. (I have
had 2 prior golden’s that were super dogs) We ended up naming him Storm and he is truly a blessing. My kids
love him! Thank you so much for all your help throughout the entire transaction. He made it to Dallas just like
you said he would and was in perfect condition. I ‘d like to have 3 more just like him if I had the room…. Thanks

All went well on the ride home. We took 80 and the ride was much easier. Molsen did great
on the ride home. We did put him in the crate after about 2 hours and he went right to sleep. My wife loves him
and can't believe how white he is. I stopped at my mom's house on the way home. We walked in and surprised her,
she didn't know we were getting a dog. She is 84 and recently had her leg amputated. She hasn't had much to smile
about in the past year. I wish you could have seen the smile that dog brought to her face. She held him for almost
30 minutes. She made me promise to bring him over every time I come to visit.
John. I truly appreciate all you did helping me have the chance to own one of your dogs.

Thank you so much for everything! The new pup has
amazing. He is so beautiful and has the most precious
personality. His personality is very sweet and cuddly.
Every time I sit down he comes and curls up in my lap, and every time someone leaves the room he watches attentively. I cannot
imagine a more perfect puppy.

I wanted to thank you for Sophie she is my best friend. I love her more
than you know.
She is so beautiful.

just wanted to let you know our puppy arrived safely last night. He is absolutely beautiful. No pictures could
do him justice. He is so handsome, we decided that the name Rocco would not do - he has to be called something like
Casanova, Prince Charming, or Valentino. My wife, who does not have the same amount of dog experience as I do, was a
little nervous before he arrived. But now she is more smitten with him than she ever was with me! As we drove
home from the airport, I heard her giggling in the back seat like a high schooler at a drive in as "Casanova" nuzzled
into her and licked her face. My 2 daughters are in love. The puppy is so gentle and so sweet, we are all so happy.
His personality is absolutely perfect.
Nick and family
He is beautiful, well behaved, adorable,
Just feeling nostalgic that it was one year ago that we were at the airport
up our sweet Moose! He is the love of our lives.
I'm sending a few photos to show you his favorite activity: romping
beach and swimming in the waves. We live 1 mile from the beach and it is
open to dogs at low tide from December
1 to April 1. Moose and I meet his
pals there every day. He is the most social dog on the beach. Everyone jokes
he's the "frat boy" who is just trying to get everyone to party and
have a good time. He gets along with everyone
and gets lots of compliments
on his good looks from other dog owners. We are so proud that he belongs to
Thanks again for our wonderful boy.
Thanks for responding and sending the papers. Sandy Shell has, and is still growing into
an amazing young lady. She is known in our village with young and old and greets everyone with respect and a paw shake.
Sandy and her brother Hollywood are best buddies and love to run together on the beach, as well as all her other dog friends.
Sandy is the light of our life and our five grandchildren. Thanks
again for sending us a wonderful angel.
you and your family a peaceful and healthy New Year.
Judy, George & Sandy
I really can’t express how awesome Conch
is. I took him into the vet today and the entire staff was shocked at how calm his demeanor was and of course they were in
awe of his beauty. We had him at the office with us for 6 hours and all he did was chew his toy, go out and use the potty
and lay in my office. He loves being outside and goes galloping around for 20 minutes and then poops out for an hour. What
I can't believe is just how relaxed and calm this dog is. The Vet knows
the breed well and said he’s in great shape and was really pleased with how well he was cared for. Conch is nothing
short of extraordinary and we can’t thank you enough for making the suggestion of him being a good pick. What a wonderful
life we are going to provide him but it will be nothing compared to what he give us in return.
Thanks again. Regards,

I just wanted to drop you a
quick note to let you know how well Remington did on the trip home to Massachusetts and how well he's adjusting already to
his new home. He missed his litter mate for the first 30 min or so in the car, but then relaxed and was excellent the
rest of the ride - I stopped a couple times to let him run around a bit and get some fresh air. There was also a
grassed area at the airport so we stayed outside until right before the flight which worked out perfect...he was tired and
slept most of the flight (which was only 75 min long anyway so it went by quick).
My wife and sons absolutely love him and he's one spoiled little pup already. He had a Vet check on Thursday
and weighed in at 11 lbs 7 oz - all was well. He's had no issues. He's sleeping 6 hours non-stop in the
crate in our bedroom at night....better than we anticipated at 8 weeks old! Thank you again for everything - we couldn't
be happier with him.
We just wanted to tell you what a great puppy she is. We thought
she would be timid and exhausted after the flight but she is fine. She has a wonderful personality full of spirit and
is getting along great. Our other dog is fine with her. When we lost our female last year he was very mopey.
He is five and she was 12 and always was the boss so it was hard for him. This little puppy is so funny with him and
he is so gentle and passive with her. We have kept her feeding the same and are having no problems letting her out for
the bathroom. She slept from 11:30 last night until 5:30 this morning we keep her in a crate in our bedroom with us.
Can you believe when we got her around 3 from airport she hadn’t even had one accident! My daughter has
decided her name is Lacey and she seems to like it. You did such a great job with her and are so grateful to you for
selling her to us.
Joe, Michelle Alex and Kristen
Also our dogs,

I wanted to reach out to let you know how wonderfully things are going with our new addition to the family.
We've named our little guy Sampson and he has been an absolute pleasure. He arrived in perfect condition at the airport
last Friday and he has felt like a member of the family ever since. Attached is a picture from a few days ago.
Sampson is spunky, friendly and just has an amazing temperament. Everyone who has met him has loved him as much
as we do. Thank you for taking such good care of him during his first 8 weeks! We are thrilled to be
parents of such a sweet boy.
