OUR BLUEBELL FAMILY LETTERS
Elizabeth, Thank you so much for the birthday treats for Zoe (Lady). It was such fun surprise! I wanted to tell you that Zoe is the most wonderful dog I could have ever imagined. She is sweet and fun and was very easy to train. I’ve directed many people to your website since they are so impressed with what a special dog she truly is. It’s my dream to some day get another pup from you. I don’t think I ever told you, but I grew up in the countryside and my mother raised Great Danes. I had every pet imaginable including horses, dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs and infant raccoons (I would foster them for the nearby national park). When my kids were young, one of my mother’s great danes tried to attack my toddler. I threw myself over my child and was chewed up badly on my back and skull while they tried to pull the dane off of me. I wound up hospitalized. I was afraid of dogs for the next 25 years. When my daughter wanted a cockapoo and asked me to help train and raise it, I realized that I could be around small dogs comfortably. Zoe is my re-entry into the joys of having a dog. She is so sweet and gentle. Everyday I am grateful to have her in my life and to be reconnected to animals. Thank you for raising such special little creatures!
Hey Elizabeth, Wanted to give you quick update. Linus (yes my kids picked them to name him Linus which makes me giggle) hasn't missed a beat. He has adjusted well to all the kids as well as our two Goldens. My goldens just can't quite figure out how to play with him yet but they enjoy laying next to each other and watching Linus running around and barking at them. We have all fallen completely head over heels. So much I said to my husband I want a second:) Anyway, I am attaching a few pictures of the kids with him.. - Jennifer
Update! Linus did get a Bluebell Pup playmate! Our past Theo. Picture to come soon!
Good Morning Liz!
I know you've been really busy with all you new precious babies and they are super cute! I just wanted you to know that Nellie has been such a sweet girl! She is a good girl and really smart. She has slept through the night since we brought her home. She was easy to potty train and she loves snuggles but is also very independent. You’ve done such an amazing job preparing her for our home. I just wanted you to see her at 6 months old and tell you thank you for working with us to bring this sweet girl home!!
As you know it’s hard to get good pictures with that black face but here’s a few from this month! Blessings!
You must know Liz that Frankie is the most incredible dog EVER!!! She is sweet, kind, fresh, spunky, loving and probably one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL dogs ever.....People absolutely lose it when they see her!!!! She really needs her own instagram page....hate to say it but the others that do....as adorable as they are don't come close to her stardom!!!! I have to keep myself from eating her up!!!! She is perfectly square...she fetches the ball and brings it back every time...she sleeps all night and loves to snuggle after taking her out of her crate before she goes outside every morning. - Lisa
My husband and I joke that we don’t even remember life before Brooklyn and that somehow we are able to black out the rough first few weeks! We had no idea we could possibly love an animal this much - she literally brightens our day every day with her sassy, adorable and mushy personality. She’s so playful yet snuggly at the same time. She wants to be on my lap at all times and follows me around the apartment trying to give me kisses. Brooklyn can sense when something is wrong and makes sure to plant herself right on me to give extra kisses. Coming home every day to a sweet little pup who throws a party every time you enter the door is the best feeling! We live in NYC and get stopped on the street daily asking what type of dog she is because she looks so much like a little teddy bear. We had a wonderful experience with Bluebell and would highly recommend - Brooklyn is just such a love bug! - Kira, NYC . FOLLOW BROOKLYN ON IG HERE!
My sweet babies were snuggling on my bed this morning (a daily ritual!) and I just happened to have my iPhone nearby. George is almost 18lbs, Sophie a hair under 10lbs. For anyone questioning one vs. two puppies I can say without reservation, go for the two. They are best buddies, smart as all heck and have brought more happiness to my life than you can ever imagine. Thank you for raising such wonderful pups! - Sue
Hi Liz- Just wanted to drop you a quick note about Oliver. He has done absolutely amazing since you dropped him off! He just loves the kids and watches their every move. He just loves them and I have never seen my kids so in love. They treat him like a king : ) He has had no accidents, rides in the car with us everywhere now, is social as a butterfly, and sleeps through the night without even crying at all! He is the sweetest little boy and doing absolutely fantastic. Thank you again! We love him to pieces. - Kristin
Louie is a joy. Such a great, happy and smart dog. He’s stole my heart and has made many friends but Lilly remains his one true love. Just letting you know that I truly found a prince - Terry
Liz, Thanks for the (birthday) cookies! We can’t imagine life without Chipper. He is the sweetest (and probably only) dog that can handle our family. Our youngest loves Chipper but is not the most gentle yet Chipper handles it with grace. He turned out to be about 15 lbs which is a little bigger and that is a good thing. All that see him adore his cute, puppy looks and loving personality. We have sent a few referrals your way. 😊We hope all is good with you and your expanding family! Love, Charlene
Hi Liz. Hope you and your family are all well. Sorry we haven't been in touch regarding Presley's progress. He has been a wonderful addition to the family. Smart, athletic, quick to learn and never mind a beautiful little dog. He is so much fun and loved by all who see him. Louise and I will most likely be in touch for a sister for Presley in a year. We are building a new house and want to wait till construction is complete. Attached is a recent photo of Presley. He turns 8 months tomorrow. Best regards, Jean and Louise
I took Packer to see our Vet yesterday for a health check. He weighed 4.5 pounds and our Vet said he looked great! Our first week has been going extremely well! Packer sleeps great at night in his crate in our room — he doesn’t even cry! He loves the snow! I don’t let him stay outside for too long because he gets cold, but instead of staying on the shoveled path we made for him, he dives right into the piled up snow off the sidewalk. He’s so funny! He’s doing well with potty training, too, and even comes right up to me after he has peed because he knows he will get a treat! He and Piper have come a long way in the short 4 days he’s been home; at first she was indifferent to him, and possibly a little scared (he’s so fast! and unpredictable!), but now she is engaging with him and trying to get him to play. She does correct him when he’s doing something she doesn’t like (like biting or humping her leg!), but she hasn’t hurt him in any way. And it won’t surprise you that he retreats behind me after a correction, but then tries again 10 seconds later 😂 But even that has improved — he isn’t biting or humping her anymore. I’m pretty amazed by how fast she went from “tolerating” him to being interested in him to wanting to play with him. He’s adorable always, but he makes me laugh when he’s running and running and ends up rolling over repeatedly — he can sure tire himself out! (Which can be a good thing at times ).
Hope all is well with the other pups and your family. - Nancy
