We take great pride not only in our show dogs, but the dogs we have
sold as family pets. We love to hear from you!
Here are some of the emails we have received from owners. Please be
patient while this page loads as there are a lot of photos to download.
Recently arrived photos from some of our owners.
Jennifer & Scott
From: Patrick, Ana, and Hugo
Good to hear from you! Yes, everything is going well here with Hugo
- I've included some more recent shots of him out enjoying the summer
with this email, though they don't really do justice to the amount of
hair that he's now filled in with! It's also tough to get any action
shots of him: it seems the only time he's still enough to take a
picture is when he's unconscious in his bed.
He seems to have settled in to our household routine quite well now,
and has completely won the hearts of all the members of our extended
family. When we went away this summer for a week, Ana's parents were
happy to see us go since it meant an entire week with Hugo all to
themselves. He is slowly discovering more and more of his 'inner dog':
we've only just recently heard him use his voice to try and scare off
strangers at the door, but the bark he produced seemed to scare himself
more than the pizza delivery guy it was directed at.
As I write this email I'm reminded of a pleasant surprise we've had
with Hugo: specifically he seems to enjoy sleeping in. As someone who
grew up with dogs which insisted on waking up the whole house with
whining starting at 6am, Hugo's preference to sleep past 8am on the
weekends has been fantastic!
All the best,
Patrick, Ana, and Hugo
From: Roberta, Sydney and Mojo
All is really well thank you. Prince Mojo is also really fantastic! I
have been trying for weeks now to compose an email to you and everytime
i sat down something came up.
I have to say whatever it is your dogs are made of certainly rubs
off on the offspring. We could not be happier with Mojo. He travels
with us everythwere.
I am attatching a couple pics.

Mimi, Lola & Tara

Sheâ€™s quite the character!

Zachary & Artie
just wanted to email you guys and give you a quick update on
is doing since his first birthday is coming up on the 30th.
He is doing absolutely amazing and has adjusted very very
well. When you told me he was a "happy puppy" I thought you
were just saying that but clearly he is a very happy puppy!!!
He is fully house broken and does an array of tricks!! I have
uploaded a couple pictures for you to see how he has grown
I want to thank you again for providing me with such an amazing puppy!!
Again thank you so much for everything and please email me if you have
any little ones like Artie, boy or girl for I think he would be really
excited to have a friend at home!!
Hope all is well with you and I look forward to hearing back from
you.....enjoy the pics!!!
cute photo comes
from Cody & Chloe's family.
Simon is doing very well, he is very playful and energetic!
He has been a wonderful companion and is the star wherever we go, he is
building confidence more and more each day. Something
interesting about him is he gathers everything he can find (towels,
rugs, socks, his toys and the cats toys, blankets, slippers, and more)
and piles them in the living room. I found him sleeping on
top of the pile of stuff today. He is quite the
clown. Also he has discovered his bark, he only barks when he
is playing with the cats, which is funny!
Shivawn & Edward
Hope all is well. Just wanted to give you Edwards
update. The paper training is going extremely well, he's doing
a great job, he has maybe one accicdent a day and the rest are
all on his mat, Im amazed at how quickly he's has gotten the hold of
He is also doing well with the socializing. The vet said that he
shouldnt be with other dogs just yet, not until he gets his last
shot, however I have still introduced him to people so he
doesnt think him and I and the apartment are all that exist, without
over whelming him ofcourse. My mom came by
on saturday and my sister spend the day with edward
and I today and he was so excited to see and play with someone
new, he wasnt overly glued to me at all.
Its amazing how much I learn about him each day. Each day more of his
personality comes out, its great! And ive included a picture of edward
getting ready to go to his vet appointment on saturday
A Note from BuddysRus: The
following story shows the temperament of a well bred & raised
Chihuahua. A Chihuahua that has not had the upbringing we give our
puppies, would have snapped out of fear.
This is one of the most precious pictures that I have!
I would like to introduce you to Marissa, she is 5 and has a severe
global developmental delay. She is still learning to walk and
gets around by crawling, she has no words so she doesn't communicate
like you and I. BUT she is able from time to time to show everyone in
her life that they are important.
She learned how to give kisses a little while ago but Chewi was not one
to want to be on the receiving end because her kisses are "open-mouth"
Chewi was sitting on my lap and I was preparing an email with my BB
when my husband brought Marissa over for a goodnight kiss.
Instead of leaning into me she kept leaning into Chewi.
Seemed like she was determined to let Chewi know that she loves him
too! Unfortunately a camera on a BB isn't as accurate as I
would like because I took it to soon and missed the kiss but still, all
in all, this is a pretty SPECIAL photo of a very special girl and a
special little dog. :o)
Hope you guys are having a great New Year!
ok so i buy the mini
couch for chewi and nikki...i
buy a BIG bed for otis.
otis sleeps on mini bed with chewi. ;o) too cute not to share!
Ok so is this cute or what?! lol.
This is my son Colton, who most times prefers one of the dog beds to
his own and quite pleased with himself because Chewi perched on his lap.
Update (January 6,
I thought you might find this cute. Chewi and Pixie
took over Otis' pad. lol!

Kevin & Roxy
Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.
Just wanted to catch you up on how wonderful our dog Roxy, who is now 5
years old, is. She was house trained in two days and has
learned many cool tricks. She is also on the St. John
Ambulance Therapy Dog program try out list for March 2009 because of
her gentle loving nature. She is the most perfect dog I could
had ever wished for, health wise, calmness, intelligence, and of course
great looks. I really hope to get a little sister for Roxy
from you in the very near future. We love the fact that all
your dogs receive lots of TLC in your home and that your puppies get
off to the most ideal start in their tiny lives and put into selected
homes. Thanks for allowing our family to have such a precious
life in our home.
Sincerely Cindy and Kevin

Brian and Debbie
Roxy is now a proud certified St. Johns Ambulance Therapy
Dog. She passed her lengthy tests with ease and will now
visit the elderly in our local old age home. Roxy is such a
joy to our family and now I can share that joy with others in
Chico is a very attractive, healthy and happy 4 pound dog. I
can't believe he is already approaching his first birthday.
Roxy and Chico are the best of friends and have grown very fond of each
other. He keeps us all entertained with his antics and Roxy
on her toes and young at heart.
Sincerely, Cindy and Kevin
We received this beautiful photo from "Marilyn's" family.
Donna and "Piglet"
Hi, here are two pictures of Dona Linda (we
call her Piglet). Piglet's big brothers are a
Chihuahua mix (Rocky) , and a white shepherd named
Beauregarde. She is our princess.
Missy & Tito
Sorry it has taken so long to send you pictures. Tito has been a real
treat, he is a great personality and has grown up to be a great dog. He
has just turned 1yr last weekend and is now 5.5lbs. He spends
most of his time during the day sleeping, perferable on or beside one
of us if we are home. When he is awake he is enegetic, and loves
meeting other dogs of all sizes and kids, he is a little timid with new
adults but he warms up to most of them pretty quickly. He does have a
bark, but he seems to perfer his quiet wimper to get your attention. He
will bark once or twice at the door bell and sometimes he sits on the
stairs and lets out a little gruff at people and cars passing in the
window. This summer he was at the cottage with his friend Molly and
they loved chasing each other in the tall grass and playing tug a war
with a rope. He is a fast swimmer but he is not to sure about running
into fetch things from the water. He does love to fetch toys and sticks
or be chased around outside. He walks well on a leash but will also
stay close when off leash. Sometime soon we will bring him out so you
can see him.
Kevin, Missy and Tito

More pictures of our Princess :)
Our little Brewser was with us for such a very short
while--not even a year..but in the brief time we had with him he
touched our hearts and his loss is deeply felt.
Brewser came into the world on July 26th, 2007 and for the
first twelve weeks of life he was cared for and loved by Buddysrus, the
breeders, Debbie and Brian Eckenstein.
On October 10th, 2007 he came into our lives...he was much
loved and cared for. He filled the loss of another companions loss. He
had a sparkling personality and he was the most kind caring little guy
you could ever want to have as a companion. He did not cause any
problems, barked only on rare occasions and was our constant companion.
He loved his walks, he loved his treats and he was never ever
alone... He grew in strength and progressed well and then on one
memorable day, May 22nd, 2008 he developed a head tilt and began
Numerous trips to the vet, several procedures at an emergency
hospital determined that his neurological symptoms where not genetic,
but from an unknown source. A strict regimen of medications began
immediately. Sadly, they were not enough to save Brewser.
Some of the meds designed to assist with his neurological
symptoms had attacked his liver. He was five pounds and too small to
tolerate the medications. His liver failed and we had had to make the
most painful decision.
On July 14th, 2008, twelve days shy of his first birthday,
Brewser's suffering ended. He went to sleep in the arms of his family
and he was not alone. He will not be forgotten as his little spirit
touched many in the short time we had with him. We had him in good
times and this makes his passing all the more painful.
