Hi Christopher,

For Higgins' seventh birthday yesterday we took our usual trek - a 50 minute walk - to a
creek in Georgetown so he could swim for an hour. I keep telling him that he should pace
himself or he'll run out of energy by the time he's eight. Attached are photos, including a
photo from March when we went to the Tidal Basin for the cherry blossoms - that was a five
hour outing!

Higgins is the best - such a happy, affectionate presence. Thanks always for giving me a dog
with an amazing temperament.

Take care, Kim
     
Christopher,

I have to say Huck is the BEST dog we have ever had.   There
are too many stories to write about him. He will hop on ANY
mode of transportation...the john deere tractor, the bobcat, the
riding lawn mower, the 4-wheeler, even the huge CAT that we
have at our barn in Tennessee. I can't keep him out of water!
He loves to hunt and goes crazy when we pick up the gun or
mention the word Squirrel. .....And he is also a snuggling lap
dog (when my husband is not looking!) Thanks again for
delivering such a great member of our family!!!

Hope you enjoy the pictures. Huck is Finn and Gobi's puppy
from the April 2008 litter.

P.S. I am trying to talk my sister into getting a puppy from you
for Christmas!!

I want to thank you for breeding these dogs, I'm crossing my fingers that you will still be at it when I need another.  
As I lost my Lakeland Terrier of 13 yrs., I had mixed emotions.  Certainly I was sad, but was also relieved that I didn't
have to be subjected to all of his downsides any longer.  I realized that I needed an obedient dog.  My son bought an
ECS from a local pet store.  Being around him on occaision revitalized my desire to have a pet dog.  Long story short,
I researched the breed and ended up searching for an field bred ECS.  All I can say is that my puppy that I purchased
from you has exceeded my expectations in every way imaginable.  From house training, obedience, trainability,
loveability, intelligence, will to please, etc. etc. etc. etc.

I would not waste my time sending this email if I didn't believe 100% in what I am saying as I'm not a BS'er.  I've had
my pup for about two months, and it is obvious to me that Christophers puppies are inherently capable of being the
best house dogs or bird hunting dogs a man could ask for. Turbo loves packing his antler around and chewing on it
as well as frolicking around in the ivy.

A little over one year ago my beloved Cocker Spaniel, "Norton," passed away.   He was one of my best
friends for over 15 years.  Out of all the puppies with which my wife and I have been blessed, the loss of
Norton was the most difficult.  Knowing that you breed Cocker Spaniels, and as my close friend, I turned to
you for advice and consolation.  While you are known for hunting dogs, all I wanted was a "lap dog" who
would be playful and loving and easy to care for and train.  You invited me to your home and your kennels,
and as soon as I laid eyes upon your liver colored English Spaniels I immediately fell in love.  When you
then introduced me to Gleason's litter, and when I put that beautiful puppy in my hands for the first time,
though no bigger than my hand, Gleason had found a new home.  He is now a little over a year old and he
is without question the most beautiful, the most loving, the most eager puppy in the world.  He wants to
play, lick, and enjoy everyone he comes in contact with.  Your assistance over the past year in training him,
and helping us with behavior tips, and advice has made you his "Grandpa."  He is wonderful with my 3 year
old Grandchild, and adores my family and his "stepsister" Chamois, an 8 year old white cockapoo.

We cannot thank you and Rene enough for Gleason, and providing the obvious love, affection, and
socialization that has made him such a pleasure to become my new best friend.  Thank you again.

Best Personal Regards,

Happy 1st Birthday, Peaches!   

Just wanted to say hello and let you know
that at 12 weeks Gibbs is over 7lbs now
and doing great. He sits, he holds about
ten seconds before I release him for
entering doors.  Same for food after it is
laid out in front of him.

You did great on this breeding my friend!

Higgins as a puppy
Hey Guys!

Just wanted to send ya'll a quick note on Tule :)   She is
doing great!  She found her "voice" the other day and finally
started to bark; the funniest sound.  She loves to play and
play and then when she's done/tired she comes over and
gets in my lap and just falls asleep.  It's so fun to watch her
each day.  Every day she has some new quality or trait that
comes out and every day she is getting bigger.  She is
changing fast!  I attached some pictures.  Of course she will
hardly sit still long enough for one.  We are delighted with
her and can't wait for what's in store.  She is truly amazing
and so smart!

Hi Christopher,

Just wanted to let you know that the
puppy, whom we named Georgia, is a
great dog.  She's all that we could ask for
and I wanted to just thank you.  Especially
with the sadness that we've had over
having to put our 8 year old cocker down
due to a brain tumor it's a treat to have a
bundle of joy like Georgia.

Rosie is really a special pup.  She is learning how to sit and already walks on a leash okay (she now pulls
me instead of the other way around).  We couldn't be more pleased.  I'll send pictures some other time
when I figure out how.  Thanks again for breeding such wonderful dogs.  I think she has her father's eyes
and I just love them.  My husband is in love with her.

Thanks again.

Hi Christopher and Rene.

This puppy is precious.  He wagged his tail all the way home.  Neighbors keep stopping by.  
Bates is the talk of the town!

We love this dog.  So does everyone else who sees him.  Everyone thinks he's beautiful.  
We're very happy with him.  He makes us laugh all the time.

Hope you are doing well.
