Thanks for Carson

Carson, a half-brother to Myth’s young puppies, is one of the Landin and Payton puppies. He lives in Michigan. He’s so cute!


With permission, I share what his owners have to say!

I just had to write a note to you after our first obedience class yesterday.  The class is taught by a vet who is also a breeder of Jack Russell terriers (35 years experience in vet med).  She spent a good part of the first class talking about the value (to the puppy, and the puppy’s family) of a quality experience with the breeder the puppy’s first weeks of life.  She described many physical, social, and genetic problems that ensue from careless breeding and indifferent or incorrect nurturing.  I sat there and thought to myself “we are more fortunate than we even knew.”  Our experience with Carson has been the absolute opposite of everything she described.  He  is such an absolute joy to us–outgoing but not aggressive, affectionate but not suffocating, alert and responsive, and always ready to please and try new things.  He is vigorous and very healthy.  We know we owe this to you.  He will have a lot to learn (so will we!) in class, but he is off to such a good start–the start you gave him.

We won’t overwhelm you with emails, but I will send pix when he gets more involved in class (my phone wasn’t taking such hot pix last nite).  He is growing and thriving and learning his manners where chewing is concerned.  It may take awhile for him NOT to get all the shoes out of the closet and drag them around the house.  He just loves shoes…

Never think you are forgotten as our dog becomes more tightly woven into our family.  We know we owe so much to you.

This makes both Julie and I so happy!! 😉 We’re looking forward to following his growth and successes.


Landin is the sire of Myth’s litter. Julie recently shared the following video of Landin – Ch. Kunza Drin Lan at FFT Melou. Drin Lan represents gratitude in Tibetan.

Here’s Landin as a puppy already showing off his agility skills. 🙂


Jeepers creepers!

As Louis Armstrong sang:

Jeepers creepers, where’d you get them peepers?
Jeepers creepers, where’d you get those eyes?
Gosh, oh, get up; how’d they get so lit up?
Gosh, oh, gee, oh, how’d they get that size?

Melissa reports that everyone has eyes open! And are up on all fours-mostly and getting more active.20150913_214452


Some of the titles need to be updated – especially grandma Ella’s – but here’s their family tree…

Myth, mother of the puppies, is on the right. Myth’s mom, Josie, is on the left. And that’s Melissa – breeder and owner of this current litter – in the middle. If I remember correctly, this photo was taken in anticipation of both Myth and Josie heading off the AKC Agility Invitational two years ago. Both Myth and Josie are Grand Champions and MACHs…which stands for Master Agility Champion. This year both are again invited, along with Ella, who is the puppies’ paternal grandmother. Pretty ladies! Smart ladies!

Melissa says: New photos of the puppies, everyone is doing well, gaining weight with nice and shiny coats.
