Hi Cynthia,
It’s been awhile that I’ve wrote. On Dec.11th we got our first leg in Novice Obedience at the Onate  Trail show. Hopefully we get the other two at the shows in Jan. Troy is doing very well, you’d be proud! The picture is Troy with his little friend Cali.
 
Have a wonderful new year!

Cynthia. We could not be happier. Rowdy completed puppy kindergarten 3

weeks ago. Jenn is continuing his training. It will not be long before

he starts his obedience competition. We are not sure what his final

color is going to be. We are pretty sure he will retain the red, but,

not sure how much he will lighten up. He has yet to meet a stranger.

Thank you for helping to decide which one to take. I am sure Ivan would

have worked out, but, Rowdy is a dandy!   John &  Jenn

Hi Cynthia-
Zeke is doing better!  We just changed his vet this month because we found out this vet does blood work and has actual allergy shots to desensitize him to his allergies.  He was doing good with the other vet, but it has been so expensive getting baths and special  dog food and cortisone shots and prednisone pills.  Getting the blood work and allergy serum for him is expensive too, but in the long  road it will save money.  We would not trade him for the world, he  is the most WONDERFUL dog! When he met his new vet, Shan was giving the  information and Zeke stood up with his paws up on the counter and Shan  said “and this is Zeke”.  They were all so impressed with  how great he is.  He’s never met a stranger and loves kisses.         He has no idea he is a dog or how big he is.  We have enjoyed him  so much! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!!
Sincerely,
The Evans Family

Hello Cynthia,
 
I took these new pics of Roman yesterday down by the water near our  subdivision.  He loves to swim, but it’s too cold now in Dallas.   He really wanted to go after the ducks!  His 4th birthday is  coming up in January of 2011.  I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since we bought him from you.  We’re lucky to have him with us each and every day.  He’s the best.
 
Take good care,

Good  morning Cynthia,                         

I  pray this finds you and your children all well!  Today is my  boy’s 6th birthday!!  B Zack is a very big boy and is  very healthy!  He weighs 93 lbs.  He is extremely obedient and  protective of me.  He is so happy in his den (our home) and the best companion anyone could ever dream of.                         

I   want to thank you again for all your diligent efforts in breeding.     God blessed you and blessed me when I got this four-legged child!    I am so grateful and tell God that often in my prayers.  I would be  so lost and lonely without B Zack.  He brought me back around after  I passed out from a heat stroke this summer.  He did it again in  the back yard when I fainted.  He had my shirt up around my neck, glasses off and was cooling me down.  I just cannot say enough about his temperament and caring/protective nature.                         

I   hope you have a lovely day.  Dennis and I have been getting him  mentally stimulating toys … which he loves … but gets so tired and  takes a nap after figuring them out.  He has conquered them all!                         

Love  you and thank you again for this wonderful companion,

Hello Cynthia,
 
I haven’t written in a while so I thought I’d drop you a note.   Yesterday Jeff and I took Roman with us to an area in Plano, Texas  called The Shops at Legacy.  It’s a very upscale shopping, bar, and  restaurant district, with some places being pet friendly.  Fortunately for us yesterday was below 90 degrees.  That may sound  hot, but we’ve gone the past 4 months hovering right around 100 or more  so 90 feels amazing!  Roman was welcome with us on a patio for  happy hour and he was truly the perfect dog!  I could not have been  prouder of him.  He sat there quietly and extremely well-behaved  the entire time.  Children came up to pet him and he did his usual thing, which is lowering his head and bending his ears back in        submission.  It’s SO cute.  Then, all of a sudden, two people  walked by that he did not like for some reason and he switched into the  perfect guard dog that he is. 
Our waiter asked about him and I of course referred him to you.  When we walked back to our car people stopped us left and right asking about him or commenting on how gorgeous or well-mannered he was.  I        thought you’d like to know.  Attached are a couple of pics of Roman and me.
 
Take good care!

Hi Cynthia,

I  saw Beauty’s new puppies and hope she is doing well. I am a little bit  surprised to see only 3 puppies… I thought she would have 8 or more again.

I  adopted another dog, Imma, from shelter a couple of month ago to be a  friend of Sieben. Imma is about similar age as Sieben and about 45 LBS and she is a Doberman mix. Sieben is already 75LBS. They play together when we are present and sleep in separate areas when we are not at home. We took them to the coast once and they both love the sea.

Recently I am taking Sieben to a class for some more fun. He is very smart and handsome. The trainer likes himJ

It  has been very hot in Austin so I take Sieben to swim at least once a week.   He is a great swimmer. I also noticed that he starts paying less attention  to other dogs/people and loves to play with me more and more.

You  can see in the picture that he is not so happy about the kiddy pool I got  for him… too small…

Sieben  will be 1 year old in a couple weeks and I miss that little fur ball. He  is a very good dog. Joseph and I both love him very much and we are glad  that Alice introduced us to you. Thanks again.

June 21, 2010 –  Tidmores Rising Star Hank aka Renno

I have to brag on Renno.  He passed his CGC yesterday with flying colors!  He is such an awesome dog.  I get compliments on him where ever we go….first for his looks (he is gorgeous!) and  then for his personality.  He absolutely loves everybody….people and animals.

He is friends with the miniature horse that lives next to the Rio Grande club house…he has to go say hi whenever he sees him.  With the little dogs he will generally lay down (on his own) to make friends.          He is a wonderful ambassador for the breed because he is so friendly.  He will be taking the therapy dog test when he is old enough so I can  start doing some therapy work with him.
 
Love,
Sharon

Hi Cynthia!
It is great to hear from you, sorry its been so long, I have been so busy lately.  Zeke is the most absolutely wonderful dog! We have been having a lot of allergy problems with him though, and I have been        meaning to let you know about it. He loves all children and people.  He is spoiled rotten and has just been wonderful for us!!

Cynthia,              

I am truly sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. As you can see in the pictures, she is beautiful!  She has lots of personality and isn’t afraid to speak her mind (she fits in well with the family).  Overall, she is very independent.  In the evenings she lays in the kitchen while we are doing other things. Thanks for checking on us!

Hi Cynthia,                 

It’s been forever since I have written and I  just wanted to give you an update on our wonderful Samantha.  I saw  in someone’s letter you posted that they have the most beautiful dog ever, well I have to say I disagree, because I think Samantha is the most beautiful dog EVER (I never even saw their dog, but I just can’t        imagine a dog being prettier than Sam).   I cannot even begin to tell you what a joy she has been.  She is now 2 1/2 years old and is doing wonderful.  I recently trained and ran a marathon in  Florida and she ran all of my shorter training runs with me.  I didn’t want to tire her on runs over 6 miles, but she absolutely loved it.  She and Austin and his friends play soccer with her nearly daily and she is an incredible soccer player.  She reads the ball  and controls it as well as the kids!!  She still sleeps in her crate in Austin’s room, but we now leave the door open and she stays in until around 7am everyday.  Yes, as you can probably see, she is VERY spoiled, but that is ok.  I truly cannot believe how smart she is.  It’s nearly weird at some of the things she can pick up on.  For example, we have an invisible fence system and when we are playing        ball with her, sometimes her ball will get past her line.  If I am busy or doing something else in the yard and she can’t get her ball, she will knock over pot that has dirt in it cause she knows it gets my attention.  She has a really quirky personality and we laugh at crazy things she does constantly.  I will say she is also very  protective and everyone knows when they see her not to run upon her and always say her name and let her smell them first.  That is perfect  for us, maybe not so perfect for unwanted guest!  She did some        agility a year ago, but she was a little timid at the time.  I  think she would enjoy it much more now and we may try it again this  spring or summer.  She did great and picked it up well.  I  bought her a beaver stuffed toy and that dog show where I saw you and Beauty and she carries it around with her every time she comes in.  She even has a special walk when she goes to get it.  Anyway, I could go on and on, but wanted to share a few stories.                            

I hope you and your family are doing well.  We are doing fine, and very excited about the spring and summer.

We ARE enjoying Nova so much! She is a blessing!   Here is a great picture of her at Thanksgiving.        Don’t know if I told you but we took her camping. She went on a really  long bike ride with us….in my back pack! She fell asleep about ½ way through.

HI CYNTHIA……HERE ARE 3 PICTURES OF THE PRETTIEST DOG EVER.  HE IS A JOY (AND A NUISANCE SOMETIME ). BUT HE IS GREAT.

HE LOVES TO GO FOR A RIDE IN THE CAR AND SITS IN THE SEAT AND LOOKS OUT THE WINDOW LIKE A LITTLE KID.
 
I BOUGHT HIM A BED AND THE FIRST THING HE DID WAS TO GRAB THE LABEL AND SWING IT AROUND HIS HEAD……SO THAT WENT BACK TO THE STORE.  HE HAS A LEATHER CLUB CHAIR THAT HE USES SO HE IS CONTENT.
 
HE GOES DOWN TO THE CORRAL TO HELP FEED  THE HORSES.  HE IS VERY INTIMIDATING…..AS LONG AS HE IS ON THE SAFE SIDE OF THE FENCE.  IF THE HORSES MOVE TOWARD HIM, HE RUNS.LIKE CRAZY.
 
 
WE LOVE HIM A LOT…..JO
