Please feel free to email for personal or vet references [email protected] Thanks so much to all of you…keep those updates coming! We love to see pictures and hear how our babies are doing..
Here is a picture of Sasha. She weighed 2lbs and 3.6oz. She’s almost house broke — only has an accident when I first get home from work if I don’t get her out. She’s learning the leash but hates it. And she knows what no means and usually listens unless its something she really wants to do such as going in the brushes were I can’t get her. The cats play thru them and she wants to play. Usually she comes when called except when she has other plans. She sleeps on the bed with me and can now go up and down stairs by herself. And we love her very much. She is great. Been watching your site and loving the new puppies. It will be a while before I can get another. But that’s ok.
Thanks and have a great day.
There’sa & Sasha
Have to thank you again for Cassee. She is fitting in perfectly, we all just adore her!!! So cute and smart…no accidents with house break ing. Which is amazing since we have to clear a spot of grass in the snow for her😁
Hope you having a wonderful weekend!
Hi there! He’s doing great! Zoots (now Quincy) has adjusted well to his new home and he sat in my lap the entire way home. We have hit some milestones this week, he now associates the dog bed that we bought with sleep time and he puts himself to bed between 9 and 10 every night. In addition he is getting much better about using puppy pads, he gets it right 8 out of 10 times now. Initially I tried housebreaking him but he was having a lot of trouble because of his age and because he is not fond of the leash so he needs to be trained to be accepting of the leash as well, which is why I decided to go with pads initially for a bit, will probably attempt housebreaking again later this week. He has been an absolute joy and is very spunky and loves his toys! His favorite is the hedgehog with a close second being the lizard. He has his appointment with the vet scheduled for Monday! Attached is a photo of him with his favorite toys 🙂

Here’s some photos of Cash. The first one is from a few weeks ago and the rest are very recent. He is the best little companion! He is constantly smiling and wants to be with people all the time. He’s the sweetest thing, I love him very much. He has got quite the instagram following. His instagram is @cashthepommy which I upload pictures to frequently. Everyone loves him so much and strangers rave about how cute he is! Thank you again!!

I hope all is well! I wanted to give you an update on my little love Dallas (Prince & Dizzy)! He’s now just a few months shy of being one year old and he’s doing great! He’s 8lbs, very athletic and super sweet! He loves being around people and other dogs. He loves his toys and chewing his dream bone. His coat has come in nicely but he hates being groomed. I’ve attached a few pics for you. Thanks!
Sasha is doing great. She is very smart and loves to play. She has a lot of personality and an attitude. She plays with the 2 younger cats and they play back. She loves outside, no matter the weather. Tank, my son’s dog is an 80lb Huskie German Shepherd mix. She loves to play with him. We have to be careful there because he is partially blind. She still eats chicken only but starting to play at some kibbles. She is very active and we love her very much. Even my mom who is not real fond of animals living in the house will stop to play with her. All of our animals come in and out of the house when they want. Sasha can go up and down one step between our living room and the rest of the first floor but I carry her up the stairs. So, thank you very much for all your help. Hope to talk to you again when I’m ready for another one. You are the best, and I’m so happy I saw your sight. Will be watch the new puppies because they are so cute, and enjoy my new one.
It’s me, Hasbro! I am 8 months old and full of fun! My big brother August thinks I am a pest, but at least he plays with me sometimes ; )
Mom thought I was never going to get bigger, but when the vet weighed me last, what I do not have in height, I have in weight (mom says daddy feeds me too much but I am just so hungry all the time!) my coat is coming in and hopefully I will have one as nice as my brother…and I hate it when mom tries to comb out my tangles!
I love to play with my toys and Chase Bobbie the cat! I am a very happy boy and they call me Happy Hasbro!
Just a quick note and photo of our two fabulous Poms, Diesel and Koty. Thank you again for our newest family member- he’s such a hoot and has made himself feel right at home.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on his progress.
The Harris Family
Hey Debi I just wanted to update you on Freyja (Taffy). She is healthy, full of energy, and braver than her 2lbs would suggest. She is fitting right into the family! Thank you so much for bringing this little fluffball into our lives!
How are you? I hope you have had a nice new year so far. I just wanted to e-mail you because tomorrow is a big day for Merlin (a.k.a. Marvel), because it is his first birthday! I wanted to send you a few photos of him so you can see how he has grown. They are attached to this e-mail. A few of them have his fur brother, Fluff (gold/tan), and fur sister, Stormy (brown/white), with him. Isn’t he gorgeous? His coloring is just stunning. Tomorrow I will be making Merlin a dog-friendly chicken pot pie for his birthday. He is just the sweetest little angel. We love him so much!
I hope all is well with you and your family,
Just wanted to let you know that Cash is doing great! He ate and drank water and went pee and poop. Now he’s sleeping because he’s a little tuckered out! Thanks for everything 🙂 I will make sure and send photo updates as he gets older!
I hope you are well. This morning I went to the vet with Rocket. Everything is fine. We are so happy to live with Rocket. He is such a lovely dog ever !!!
I wish to you a happy thanksgiving.
We hope you all are doing great! We love all the updates on the babies! Please keep them coming! We celebrated BB’s (Roxie) first Birthday on October 20th and we are sending you a few photos. For some strange reason she loves Batman and she told me she wanted a Batman Party. We made her little doggie Batman cakes which she loved and decorated the house with Batman balloons, posters, paper decorations, and large wall hanging of Batman to go with the Batman bed and toys she picked out. BB loves to dance and one day when my husband took her to PetSmart, she jumped into one of the beds that was of course a “Batman” bed and started dancing in it and would not get out so he had to buy it for her. That is when we knew she was Batman obsessed! She is such a character! We love her to bits!! She is the sweetest, most joyous little thing ever! Thank you again and we are so grateful to you for letting us have her! We hope all is well and we just wanted to give you a little update on how we are doing!
Take care and have a lovely Fall! Please keep in touch!
Liz, Jimmy, and BB (little Batgirl)
I have been having lots of fun in my new house! Mom and dad are just crazy about me…but I have not won my big brother August over just yet. Bobbie the cat lets me play with her and even bite her tail without getting too mad (I just can’t help it, that stubby tail is fascinating)! I am kinda tired after all that fun…sometimes I fall asleep in my food bowl!
Love and puppy kisses,
Hasbro (and Stacey)
Hi there! I hope all is well in your world!
I wanted to give you an update on Sugar. This dog is so special. I don’t know if I’ve met a smarter, funnier dog that’s just full of character and spunk! I’ve got a collar on her full time now and we are doing leash training in the back yard little by little.
I attached some photos of the little Sugarbear for you. The video is of her sleeping and barking in her dream. So cute. There are also a few of her laying by the memorial magnolia tree of my late Pom Josie. That brought tears to my eyes!
I hope you guys enjoy them. She’s in good hands, health and spirit!
Just wanted to share this pic with you. That is your sweet little BB in the lower right corner. She is still enjoying life between Cape Cod Massachusetts and Florida. She is the perfect little traveler. I am grateful everyday that she came into our lives. The fact that she matched the new camper was not intentional but we feel it would make a great advertisement for Camp-Lite. LOL
Kathleen & BB
Good afternoon Debi,
I wanted to give you some updates regarding Jax (a.k.a. Pali). He is growing very well (3.5pounds), got 2 rounds of shots and has adapted to his new environment. He loves going to the park and has a new best friend that he loves to play with. We are still working on potty training. He is very happy and we try to make him as happy as he makes us 🙂 I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to be this little precious one’s parents. I hope you are well and that you are enjoying your new grand baby 🙂
Kathlyne & Jax
Hi Debi! Just wanted to let you know Major got home safe and we love him so much!! Such a sweetheart! He slept all night right by my face. Thank you for everything. I attached some pictures of me and him and him in the garden 🙂
Good afternoon Debi,
You were right Pali (to be named Jax) is adorable!!!! Here is a picture, we all got home safely and he is already so popular!!! I am sure I’ll have a few other questions later but I meant to ask you what kind of shampoo/brush you use for him?
Thank you again for everything!
We still haven’t picked her name but I’ve been calling her ” little bit” (aka Macy) for now. She is so adorable! I’m so in love with her!!! When I got home, half of the neighborhood’s kids came to see her! I’ll send some pics of her new home.
Thank you so much!
We, quite simply, cannot tell you who is having more fun, but we think its Blossom (adult pom just retired).
She was an angel on the ride home. Now, I did manage to give her a whole body massage during that drive so she was pretty supple when we arrived home.
We took all 3 out to the back porch for lots of smelling and “getting to know you” events. All went perfectly. Everyone had dinner – no issues there either. She has been an absolute angel all the way around. She is taking this time to have a major power nap by my hubby’s recliner; laying on the carpet. If you were to look across our living room right now, you would swear that the three of them had lived here for years and years.
She is amazingly sweet. I cried and cried on the way home because I felt my recent dog, Babe, had sent Blossum to look after me. The feeling was mutual. I promise to send pics and stories often. Thank you so much for having raised such an amazing dog.
Sharron & Rene
We just wanted to let you know that Dash is doing great. He is eating well and is very active. I take him out to go potty and he races around like he just had several cups of coffee. It is so hilarious! We are glad we named him “Dash” because that is exactly what he is doing. He is learning how to “sit” on command. He is so smart and just a little sponge when it comes to learning. He is still becoming used to new and strange sounds like leaf blower etc but doesn’t freak out but just whines a little and loves to be picked up and comforted. He is still very young after all and needs his reassurance after all but we are trying to expose him to as many new situations as we can. He listens so well to what is being said to him.
Debi, I want to thank you for the wonderful care you gave our little Dash (Rocco). He is truly a pleasure to have as a member of our family. Tomorrow is Christmas and I have made our family aware we have this precious little guy as a new member of our family are all so excited to meet him. I have told them so much about him and they can’t wait. We are blessed that everyone in our family is a dog lover and many if us have more than one dog. So we are very lucky to be in a dog-loving family.
Knowing you for the past 4 months and all the information you have shared with us and the care you have bestowed on each and every one of your puppies is wonderful to have breeders who care so much. We appreciate all the questions you ask of prospective owners which are so very important in finding the right owner for your precious and beloved puppies. It is something so many other breeders don’t bother to ask but we can tell that it is so very important to finding just the right owner. We did the same thing when we were breeding and showing. It is so very important to find the right fit with the right owner.
Glenn and Mia
Hey, Debi – sorry for not keeping in touch, better. I will try to get Mallory to collect some pictures for you, but I just wanted to let you know your puppy has made herself at home and is happy and well adjusted. My Samoyed breeding mother, who isn’t a fan of Pomeranians, said she loved this one so much she would take her home and keep her.
You may not be able to tell from the picture, but she crawled onto the bed and curled up against me, here, and then promptly passed out. She’s incredibly affectionate and loves people. And she adores playing with our kitty cat, who sometimes thinks she’s too much to handle, but has decided to play along sometimes, now.
I just wanted to keep in touch. Merlin a.k.a. Nugget, just had his 4 month old check up at the Vet this morning. He weighed 5 pounds and the Vet said everything looked great! I can’t tell you how much he means to us. We love him so much, he is such a character!
These are pictures of Merlin (aka-Nugget). We love him so much! He is 3 months old. He had a Vet Appointment on Monday, he weighed 3.4 pounds. He is doing great! I just wanted you to know how much he means to us! Thank you very much!
Just a quick note to let you know Lily(Star) is doing great! My friend the dog trainer came over today and she taught me a lot. We started clicker training her today. I had also ordered an
Avidog adventure box (google it.. It’s real neat) and she loves it! She spent 2 twenty five minute sessions in it and it exhausted her… Supposed to be good for mental stimulation and to help prevent a spooked dog.
I am more trained than her I think on potty training. We went to Target and Lowes today and she spent time in a tote.
Since she spent so more time in a carrier in Austin going out to lunch and shopping and of course the plane trip she is quite good in the carrier. We are just enjoying her so.
Just wanted to send you an updated photo of our parti girl:) Her coat is coming in beautifully, even though she has lost most of her black markings. Peter and I are in agreement that she is the best dog either of us have owned. She has her own fan club in our neighborhood, family, vet and strangers…so sweet and loving to all! She is also very agile, able to walk across room on hind legs:D
Thanks again, and have a wonderful day:D
We made it back to Dallas safe and sound, Rafa (Midas) did excellent. He cried for a few minutes and then began playing. He has adapted to us very nicely already, he comes to us when we let him outside and when he wants to be held when Eddie, our other dog, follows him around too much. Eddie took to him just fine, I think they’ll be friends. Rafa isn’t afraid to stand his ground. He’s very tired now so he’s resting up. We wanted to thank you for taking such good care of him and for giving us the opportunity to have him as a family member. He will be very loved and well taken care of! Working with you was a very professional experience! We will recommend you to anyone looking for a Pom. Thank you so much!
She (Libby) is safe and sound! She was such a good little girl on the car ride home. She and Ella’s dog Rocky have become instant friends. She was jumping and playing with him right away. She is even getting along with the cats. She was fine in her crate last night and we have only had 2 accidents. She doesn’t really like the idea of a leash yet. She loves her treats and a chew bone but not so much her food. I’m hoping it passes. I’ll keep you posted.
I think he is officially adjusted! He’s picked his home base and I just put a second bed there for him since he naps right at the foot of the couch when he is out during the day. Last night was the first night he did not cry for hours in his crate and settled quickly when he woke at 3:00. Today when I ran the vacuum he went to his bed in his crate until I was finished. He’s doing really great on potty training also, he seems to make the connection between my word “potty”. He is such a crazy little guy, so playful and friendly…we are so happy! Thank you so much!
Tinka is indeed a special pom and already serving as good watch dog. On drive back, little thing stood up in case, looking out window, positioned stance to get air conditioner blast and then found bag of food in case side pocket. After few nibbles and drink of water crawled into lap and slept most of way back. Woke up, crawled back in case and curled up until reached house. Very cautious and peacock scared her, but quickly took over front lawn and peed. Growled and couple of barks at cat to establish dominance….Toby cat patiently let Tink smell, jump on top of him, but is keeping close eye on new fur ball. Tinka has explored house, chewed on everything, ate and pooped…..hopefully night in crate will not be stressful. Realized Tinka is not replacement, but a new personality that has come into my life to be cared for.
We are doing awesome! Gemma has settled in and thinks she is queen of the roost. She is running, playing, sleeping just like she should. Are you on facebook? If so friend Janna Tuggle Oliver and you can see the little clips of Gemma that Janna is putting up. And yes even a picture of Gemma and I taking a nap. Hey we play hard.
She is eating the food just fine. We are working pad and outside training, which you know it has some challenges, but Gemma likes the outside and she has taken to that just fine.
We ourselves enjoyed meeting you and your husband. We took her to Petco with us and your web site is going to get a bunch of hits because of Gemma. Lots of folks just loved her and
wanted to know where we got her and we shared your site freely as well as on facebook.As soon as I can get some pictures from Janna I’ll send them to you.
Pip’s doing great. She is doing perfect. She is so beautiful and tiny. She does her potty on the pads and doesn’t cry at all when she’s in her play pen.
We love her being part of our family.
Thank you Debi
Koko is till doing great, we have a kid recliner in our living room and he learned to jump up there(it is only as tall is he is standing up), my little Sydnie thinks she is a dog trainer, she used a sock he likes to play with to get him to do it, I was so cute because koko didn’t even know what he had done 😉 Husband told us that while we were feeding the horses and goats Sunday evening (the day he learned his new trick) that he jumped in the kid recliner (it was in closed position, not reclining) and sat there and looked around for a while and then jumped down. Sydnie was very excited to hear this!!!
Ever since they were little, they have wanted to play with our older dog, Cotton, but he grew up and got set in his ways before they did and he was never really playful with them. Koko is another story, he loves everyone in the family, it is so funny how he has different things he does with each one of us (except chew on our hands, he shares that with everyone, He he)
We have been watching the Westminster and I have a question that I have had for years and years. Why are the dogs in the show ring all the same color? Why don’t they have creams or chocolates or the merle’s????? I am thinking it is because of the breed standard and the different colors are at more local shows or something. We aren’t looking to show (I know koko would be the winner 😉 just like to watch it and always wondered.
I heard the man with the dog show on animal planet is coming to corpus, I think it is the one that has one of your dogs. I guess I should invite him for dinner since we are related now, he he!
We celebrated a one year anniversary with our new additions to the family. Butch (Jack and Bailey), and Bubbly (aka Hazel – Taz and Holly) adjusted to their new home within days and have trained us well over the year.
Butch and Bubbly live up to their names. Butch thinks he’s bigger than his actual size and struts around like a tough guy, but is a tender and sweet little man. Bubbly is effervescent and entertaining, she can be shy, but bursts in to bouts of crazy energy.
They have filled the holes left in our hearts from our past Pomeranians. If we had a bigger house, without a doubt we’d adopt a dozen more from you.
Attached are pics of then and now. Thank you so much!
Louis & Kathleen
Wanted to update you, little chocolate Koko is doing great, decided he did not like sleeping in his exercise pen at night. I was afraid he would play all night but he doesn’t, he sleeps right beside my bed. My youngest has had congestion and got me up to snuggle her while she falls back to sleep and he follows me in there and goes back to sleep. We have a routine of playing in the girls bed together right before bed while tucking them in, then go to our bdrm and do the same. After we are through playing and I put him down he doesn’t cry he just makes a bed and goes to sleep, usually on my robe 😉
Took him to vet for shots and I had my friend gave him his shots while I held him, he weighed 2 lbs on the cat scale (we put a paper towel down for him to stand on). Kind of like when I used to take my girls to the dr for a well check up, I hated them touching anything out of fear of picking up a germ.
It is so cute to watch him get used to the cat. The cat looks at him as if saying, “you are still here” ha!ha! and is doing a fine job tolerating Koko. When our lab goes and lays down in his bed, Koko runs over to snuggle and play and the lab gets up and walks away, probably so he doesn’t get attacked by the piranha teeth the puppy has. Everyone has adjusted and we love our little Koko puff!!!!
He has toys all over the place but still prefers my robe rope and fingers/hands J
Just wanted to give you a quick update on how Penee/Ariel is doing. She is perfectly awesome: eating, drinking, playing and quietly slept through the night! Oh and her waggy tail!!!!
Phoebee is just enchanted with her… motherly instincts evident as she cleans her and has even brought her toys! Grace not sure yet, sleep and food seem more important:)
All are napping after a very busy morning.
Thank you for the joy you brought into our world!
Hello dear friend.
Paisley Steel weighs 8 pounds, I am sure about 2 pounds of that is her beautiful coat.
She continues to fight to be the Alpha dog, and she does not back down to our oldest.
Neither one of our girls have the personality that Paisley does, she has to be in the middle of where the action is. She knows the word “kisses – kisses ” and runs to shower you, with a kiss, whenever she hears the words. Paisley has brought so much laughter to our home. Rick and I simple love her, with all our heart. Thank you for allowing us to own her.
I hope you and your family are doing well! I just wanted to check in and say that Bear has been such a joy and I am so so sooo happy, so thank you so much for everything! He is 5 months old and getting cuter every day! Everywhere we go, people fall in love with him. My mom said she feels like a proud grandma! And my boyfriend brags about Bear to anyone who will listen. My younger sister is in college in Alabama and she makes me send a picture every day. He is more than we ever could have dreamed of!
Blakely and Bear
Good morning from a frigid Eagle River at 0 degrees! The greetings are warm despite the temperatures. We do trust that all is well with you and yours, and especially that new little grand-baby! Congratulations on another lovely litter – just two this time, it is amazing when we think that Ziya had five!! We have named our puppy Cordelia from Anne of Green Gables. She is “Cordy” most of the time. She is settling nicely, and doing well. The vet was very happy with her and pleased with her overall. Thank you again for giving us such a gorgeous little girl, we love her dearly! She and the cat are becoming more familiar with one another, and will gradually learn to play together I am sure.
Our little Kevin (aka “Smudge”) will have his first year birthday on Saturday! He has been a delight and joy…a wonderful addition to our family. It took some time for his big brother to get used to having an annoying puppy biting on his ankles, but they have become fast friends. It really is a riot seeing our little pom playing “tug” with a 117 lb. giant…and the pom always wins due to sheer tenacity. I do have a question for you. How much longer should he be on the puppy formula? Thanks for sending the birth announcements. Although I’m not in the market for a puppy, it’s fun to keep up with your new arrivals.
He (Koko) is wonderful!!!!! Starting to loosen up, run around the house, Oh my gosh, he is awesome!!! We have tile so accidents aren’t a problem and my little one is responsible for clean up. She is my second child and somehow gets out of certain responsibilities but she is on top of things with Koko. She held him on the way home and they seem to have bonded, it is so cute. We have him in an exercise pen in the house with a puppy pad and a snuggle dog bed for nights and when we are away. My oldest daughter picked the bed out for him, said it was fluffy and he would like it, and he does. J
Last night, being a school, night we went to bed a little earlier and he cried a little. I went to get him and put him in bed with me as my husband was on his way home from out of town. He sniffed around and started digging (right in the middle of my husband’s side) as if he found a treasure and then just plopped down to go to sleep. I didn’t want him to fall asleep and then have to wake him when my husband got home so I pet him a little and talked to him, he got up and moved, dug another nest and plopped down. I started loving on him again and talking and he moved again, It was so funny!! He is happy, happy, happy!!! I will keep in touch and keep you updated.
Hope you had a great holiday season and wonderful new year! I just wanted to send you some pictures of Mochi and my cat! He is such a wonderful dog, I love him too much! I thought the photo of them snuggling together was too cute and had to share.
He has gotten so big and has the prettiest olive green eyes and rosy nose. People ask me all the time if he is some type of exotic pomeranian. Haha! 🙂
Happy New Year!
I don’t know if you remember us, but we bought a beautiful little chocolate girl (Cherokee, aka Porcia) from you and picked her up in late May. I just wanted to send you a picture, as she is growing into such a gorgeous little lady! We love her so much and her personality is so cute and sweet! She is very spunky and very loveable! She has even stolen our little Cowboy’s heart (our other PomPom), as they are inseparable! 😉 Thank you for such a wonderful little pet – we cherish her!
Have a wonderful holiday,
James & Tonja
Just wanted to give you an update on my little baby!
I named Rascal “Mochi”. He is adjusting very well and is a little firecracker of energy. He loves playing with my cat who is also a firecracker, they wrestle around on the floor and then sleep together, I’ll have to send you a video soon it’s too cute! last week I bought them matching winter sweaters so I thought I’d send you some pictures of him. I’m currently in the process of training him to play fetch and to shake hands, he is very smart but definitely lives up to his name of rascal haha!
Thanks again for everything!
I hope you are doing well. Here is a recent picture of me and Beemo (aka Ryker). He is so sweet, friendly and super smart. My daughter reminded us that it is Beemo’s one year anniversary with us so I wanted to say thanks again. I’ll send more pictures of him and Maestro as I get them. They are getting along well.
Hi Debi!!! Summer Dawn is doing great and my other Pom has welcomed her right in. She has been eating and drinking. She was in her crate last night and only cried once in the middle of the night. She went on her first car ride to drop my kids off to school. She didn’t like the car too much. Lol. Then we went to Petco and everyone loved her. We got her some toys, harness and treats. She is such a loving little girl. We are in love with her.
No name yet. We are still thinking about it. 🙂
Debi & Phil,
I want to thank you for this second chance. He is everything I hoped for. He is adjusting well. He has tired my Leo out. He slept from 10 to 4 and really had to poo. He went right back to bed. So loving and playful. He is adorable. I love the tip of his tail when it lays on his back.
Thanks to you both,
This is Milana. I purchased a puppy from you in 2009. She was named Clementine. I renamed her Nitsa. We exchanged several emails and pictures.
I wanted to reach out to you and tell you that I cannot be more grateful for that little dog. She is adorable and helped me through law school and the bar. She was really the only thing that kept me sane. Best study buddy ever.
However, I have other news for you too. Several years ago I uploaded a video to youtube of her running around when she was little and completely forgot about it. Recently I discovered that the video is getting very popular. Right now it has 185,000 views, which is kind of crazy. I decided to send you the video, I though you would get a kick out of it.
Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJPxHQeEoZ4
I hope you and your poms are doing great. Thank you again for such a lovely friend.
I wanted to give you another Maestro / Beemo update. They are getting along more now. Outside they will play and Beemo will initiate it which is cute. Inside though Beemo usually runs away from Maestro now because Maestro appears fearless and jumps on Beemo and chases him. Beemo seems more like his happy self in general. Today Beemo gave Maestro a nice lick on Maestro’s forehead.
Maestro is doing better with the potty training and will poop on newspaper in the pen (pen left with door open while we are home) but he will still poop in his crate sometimes. We’ve actually been good about noticing when he will have to go and he has gone outside much more often than in the house.
He also had a bath this weekend and he didn’t mind the water at all. He was very calm for the bath. He also doesn’t mind being brushed which is great too.
He follows me all around the house and he loves to be with his people. And he will sleep anywhere flopped on the tile floor or in front of an air conditioning vent if he comes in from outside.
He is a real sweet heart and I’m glad we have him,
“Nugget” is doing great. He is such a happy puppy. He slept most of the night and has been great about going outside to the bathroom. He ate a full meal this morning and was playing. I’m surprised how comfortable he is already. In usual pom style, he is already following me everywhere and wanting to be held.
Did he nap in the daytime? He is right now and I’m wondering if I need to keep him up so he sleeps tonight.
He will be spoiled rotten. I can’t wait for my kids to meet him. I’m sure he will love the extra playmates.
Thanks for making the business side of the deal easy.
Thanks again and I’ll send some photos.
Morning Debi ..
Bliss & Miko saying hello .. Hope you and yours are well 🙂 Have a awesome day!! Thank you again Debi. She brings such Joy to my life having her in it !!!
Bliss & Family
Well I am happy to say I have fallen in love with Magic even more today. We had a good ride home with no accidents, and so far no accidents inside. He didn’t really want to eat but I got him to eat a little by hand. He’s met all his big and little friend’s today and has gotten along well with them all. Here are some pictures from our day today!
Praline (our 7 year old ) and Paisley are best Friends. They play and play together. And as you can see from the picture, they even nap together. Paisley continues to be a blessing to our home.
Ellie is still adored…..she loves to guard the house and bark at people taking their walks in the morning! She still goes to work with Loyd every day. We just had her groomed with her short summer cut. Hope all is well with you and your fur babies!
Cherokee (aka Porcia) was a little doll the whole (long) ride home! 🙂 When we got home, because of the holiday weekend, my two sons and my daughter in-law were at the house and they instantly fell in love with her! Cowboy was another story, though. He was very standoff-ish and seemed annoyed by her. She was so cute, as she got up on her hind legs and jumped at his nose, but no matter how adorable she was, he would walk away. I’m sure he will get used to her and realize that she is here to stay. I had to laugh, because it totally reminded me of when I brought my second son home from the hospital and my two year old son totally ignored him! HaHa!
She whimpered and whined a little around 4am this morning, but that was it. Then she woke up around 7am. I was really proud of her, because we let Cowboy out to potty every morning around that time and she went outside with him, sniffed a little, then did a little ‘dance’ and pooped in the backyard! 🙂 I gave her a little bite of the peanut butter bones you made her and James and I clapped for her and made a really big deal about it, so hopefully she will potty-train fairly quickly. Cowboy is being a great ‘teacher’ to her in this area, even though he acts like she’s not alive! 🙂 She’s so funny – she won’t eat out of her doggie dish, she wants his food AND his water. She also wouldn’t play with the ‘baby’ I bought her, instead she wants his ‘froggie’ (we call it) AND his bone – even though I bought her a really tiny one, she still chews on his! 🙂
We are so in love with her – she has a beautiful little personality! It was so nice to meet you and your husband! Thanks so much for giving us such a sweet little baby girl!
I wanted to let you know how much we’re enjoying our little Kevin (Smudge). He’s very playful, loving, feisty and our Larry is starting to accept him. They play chase and even started snuggling a bit. Kevin is eating well and growing nicely. Thanks for our wonderful little dog!!
So much fun! She already understands go get your toy, jump, her name, come and others. She’s so smart! In potty training she seems to get that praise follows a deed and she knows get back in the box when nothing happens. She has three types of houses, large, medium and foam cat house and she always goes to the one where the toys are.
Just an update.
I am embarrassed at how long it has been since I have sent pictures of August (aka Buster) — as you can see, he has an amazing coat and the face of an angel : ). We love him to pieces! He will be 3 this June – how time flies.
I keep up with your blog and love seeing all the new babies. I just cried for poor Blossom, and and am happy you were able to step in when Summer delivered — hope all is well in the nursery!
I was wondering if you could send a photo of Baylee (she is August’s mom)? I guess she is retired now, and I love to show friends what his parents look like. I still remember her putting her paw in my hand when we came to pick our baby and will always have a special place in my heart for her : )
Hope you are enjoying Spring now that it is finally here!
Bentley(previously Thunder) went to vet and had first puppy shot. Vet also said he is flawless. He is doing good and adapting very quickly! If you ever need a reference feel free to pass my email along! Thanks Again!
Good morning Debi, Steele did great sleeping thru Friday night and he is very smart to be so little. When it’s time for nap/quiet time he goes in his crate & goes right to sleep, he also will whine when he needs to go to the bathroom so I’ve been taking him to his playpen. After he does his business we allow him to just stay in the kitchen which he loves so we can bond/play together along with getting my chores done. He is finding strategies on how to slip thru but we usually catch him. we’re really surprised to see how well he learns. Thank so much, my family is now complete…
Debi, Betty has already learned that no matter what she’s doing, when I say “Betty” she’s to look at me. She made a game out of it at first and would shift her eyes waiting on me to say Betty so she could get the hugs! Smart girl! Soon after we played hard on the lawn with female dobie and within 30 mins she learned to come right away. She met many of the neighborhood dogs with complete confidence. Lots of humans saw us in the yard and thought she is precious. Local watercolorist and friend has already photographed her. Female dobie is a bit confused but they had instant OK ness. Dobie didn’t get why Betty wouldn’t chase her. Walker is a satisfied man! I’m eying one of the girls. Thank you!
Hi Debi, I thought you might enjoy a pic of Fancy (Tulia) and Lola. We LOVE her so much and she is doing awesome. She fits right in with our family and all that we do. Hope all is well with you.
Debi, Thank you for the grooming tip. Here’s two pics of our little guy, one when he was younger and a more recent photo. We love that adorable little face! He weighs 6 1/4 lbs. He really seems to look like his father in his coloring and thick fur. He is really sweet and very smart. We took him to training for 8 weeks and he learned everything quickly. He is just a happy little guy who loves people and gentle dogs and we adore him! Best,
Hi Debi- Dickens is doing just wonderful. He has gotten used to his play pen and is pretty much potty trained already! He always lets me know when he needs to go outside. 🙂 When I take the girls to school in the mornings, he enjoys riding on my shoulder and falling asleep. Lol! He’s so funny! Thank you for such a wonderful little guy! Talk to you soon! 🙂
Hi Debi! Fancy is doing great. She was exhausted by the time we got home and crawled into her bed and took a nap. She was eating and drinking by the evening and going outside to the bathroom. She did great until 3:30 a.m. then took her out to pee. Whined for awhile in crate and back to sleep. Today has been great too. Whined in her crate when I had to leave to do a few errands but back in 2 hours and have played outside. Everyone is in love!! Thank u so much again.
Hi Debi! I just thought you would like to know how little Rocky is doing. He is a very happy and healthy puppy who is incredibly spoiled by his mama 🙂 We are also in the middle of puppy schooling and he is already ahead in class! Man, he is so smart. And as he is maturing his rambunctious little personality really comes out. He is very much loved and adored and we couldn’t be happier. I am looking in the near future to get him a little sister and playmate to complete the family, so you may be hearing from me again soon! Thank you again.
Debi, Look how pretty Miko is !!! And a very smart girl .. Loves to play fetch & eat … & cuddle of course .. Any how ..just wanted to share
Debi, Have been thinking of you and your pups! I LOVE my dog. I do not know what I would have done without Bhakti. Best wishes to you family.
Hi Debi- It was so great to visit with you yesterday. And I really must thank you for such a beautiful, sweet baby boy! He is everything I had ever dreamed of in a Pom puppy, and I couldn’t be happier! My kids adore him and I even caught my husband playing with him too! Lol! He has settled right in and is such a happy boy! I love that he is content to sit quietly in my lap and I’m so happy that he seems to enjoy being brushed! 🙂 He is perfect in every way. Thank you so much!!
Annabel is doing GREAT! The kids love her and she has just fit herself right into the family. She is so playful!! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!!
Hi Debi, We just wanted to update you on our (Penn) Rocky’s 2nd day with us, and to let you know that he is adjusting very well to his new home. He is such a happy, playful little guy and so smart. He is already catching on to house training and he feels comfortable enough to explore more and more each day. He also finds his food and water in the kitchen on his own now. He has such a sweet disposition and he just keeps getting cuter each day ~ we are so in love with this little guy! The attached photo shows how he has discovered that if he takes his toys out of the basket it is lots of fun to climb in! He is a wonderful addition to our family. Best, Carol &
Hi Debi, I wanted to update you on how Beemo (aka Ryker) is doing. We are enjoying him very much. He is friendly and loving and a great dog. He has a laid back personality which is great. He is playful too and enjoys many different activities and toys. He has been to the vet a few times for shots and done really well. At 12.5 weeks he was 2.3 pounds. Just adorable. He is a real sweetheart and we love him. I really see the quality in his breeding and upbringing so thank you for that. He sits and studies situations often. Such as neighbors doing yard work or people on bicycles or joggers etc. He is learning a few commands and is mostly there with potty training. He enjoys his crate when its time to sleep and never cries at night even from the beginning which made things pleasant. He has had all positive experiences in meeting other dogs and people. I’ll attach a few pictures for your viewing.
Hi Debi! I just wanted to let you know how in love with Coal we all are. He is an amazing little guy. Besides being extraordinarily beautiful (everyone stops us and oohs and aahhs when they see him), he is just the sweetest little love and he now is the king of our whole entire household. Above all he loves hunting high and low for his sisters’ stinky socks and prefers to massacre only his Mommy’s expensive shoes, leaving the inexpensive ones completely untouched. He naps every afternoon by his Mommy’s side as she putters around the house or works on her computer and he adores snuggling with his doting Daddy every night before bedtime. Every morning he prances and dances beside the girls as we walk them to the bustop at the end of our court and every afternoon he pulls me like a little sleddog because he can’t wait to pick them up! We’ve gone twice to the vet already to get all his shots and he is a superstar everytime we walk in – he’s definitely a showstopper! I have just signed him up for his first puppy training class where I’m sure the two of us will learn together (we have only ever rescused older dogs so having a puppy is a new experience for us and we have a lot to still learn!). We are doing alright on the potty training and he’s definitely a tiny drama king who howls or snips whenever the vet (or anyone) does something he doesn’t like so we are deep in the throes of trying to get him to be less nippy with us and he seems to be doing great with that. Bottom line is he’s a mischievous little devil who keeps me on my toes but our house has truly come alive in the last month since we’ve had him. We recently had a photoshoot for our girls and Coal of course was front and center. There are so many sweet ones, but because he’s so black, he is a little hard to see. Next time we will have to have a lighter background but attached is a picture that I particularly love of Coal and the girls in their Christmas best! Thank you again for such a beautiful, wonderful gift. He makes us smile, laugh and coo daily. All the best,
Jess and Tom
Just wanted to send you an update on Neeko aka “Reese”, I can’t thank you enough for my wonderful little Pom. He is quite a little pistol, always active, curious, and incredibly smart. Along with that he is such a sweetheart and we are totally in love with each other. He has been through two clicker classes and we are hoping to start an agility class soon. He is an absolute genius in training. Again, thank you so much. We couldn’t be happier.
Carol Thomas and Neeko. 🙂
Hi Debi, How are you doing? We’re all doing well in Key West! We see a lot of Poms around town…great island pups! The boys really live the life I’ll tell ya. Beach adventures, scooter rides, countless treats (fresh fish). bike rides, tons of people to say hello to. As you know, they’re very social creatures and want every single person that passes by to acknowledge and give them attention. It’s because they’ve yet to meet a stranger. They make people smile & laugh:) Puppies spreading cheer:))) Yogi is 6 months now. Kirby celebrated his 2nd bday on Sept 19. I cooked him up an all natural steak! He ate the entire thing. His coat was really long so just recently I got him groomed and now we can see how small he is compared to Yogi. That hair gives him so much size. They’re such fun little boys and love having each other. Yogi is quite the swimmer. He’ll jump right in. He’s all about the water! People stop us all the time to tell us what pretty pups we have. We always tell em Dee Dee has the best ones:)
Debi, He (Wilson) is so sweet! He actually did really well with the bath & I think we finally have him potty trained. We took him to an art fair in Tulsa last weekend and he was so famous! I think I need to start carrying around a stack of your cards!
Debi, Abbey loves her little sister. They are inseparable. I was so afraid with Abbey’s strong personality she would just run over Sophie. But that’s not the case. Sophie stands her ground and then some. She is just adorable. She growls when they play, they puppy wrestle, play tug of war, take turns chasing each other, and steal each others toys until both are exhausted and have to take a break for a nap. Molly is even trying to run with them. It’s so funny to watch. Sophie is still sleeping on our bed in her crate. She whimpers in the night and we take her out to do her business. It’s worked out real well. Abbey sleeps at the foot of the bed next to Sophie’s crate. Abbey has a new trick she does every night when John goes back to the restaurant to close up. She waits until John comes over to my chair to kiss me bye, and when he straightens up, she runs and hits the cushion on my chair, bounces up to the arm of the chair and then right into his arms. She’s ready to go with him. He takes her and Molly and if they’re good they get a treat at the restaurant. It’s been a great week. Can’t wait to get home at night to see “The Girls”.
Debi: Pictures are a challenge to me but thought I would give you a glimpse of Abby – age 5 months. She is all that anybody could ever wish for in a little fur ball baby.
Rocco (Tory) 8 months old. Such a fantastic puppy! Thanks Debi 🙂
Hope all is well in your world! Thought we would send this pic to you…she is so SMART and AWESOME!!!! J
Cyndee, Peter, Audree, Zoee, Gracee, and Phoebee!!! YAY!
Hi Debi and Phil! I have a multitude of Kovax photos. I am so obsessed with him, in a positive way. If you have an Instagram or Facebook go ahead and add me! Then you can see all the updates I’ve been posting 🙂
Hey Debi … Rose is doing fantastic… she went right into her bed around 8:45 pm. Her kennel is in my walk in closet, very quite & close to Mama. She went potty outside before bedtime & fell fast asleep made — no sounds until 3 am. Very quietly she let me know she had to potty again. Went right back to sleep after I praised her & slept till around 6:45am. What a very good & happy girl she is. We went & signed up for puppy class starting on the 1 st. The whole family wants to go together, it will be a great time for all. And what Little Rose deserves. Thank you for such a special and awesome gift!! You did a ringer of a job Sweet Lady. I will tell anyone whom asks me if they are looking for a Pom to call you for sure!!! Thanks again, Ill keep you posted on Rose’s progress if you wish? Have a great day!
Bliss, Family & Brand New Addition “Little Rose”
Just wanted to let you know that Thor is doing very well!!! Had him to the vet and they were all over him 🙂 He is also the unofficial mascot for Yuma Catholic High school! I have had about 50 kids come pay him a visit….My other pom is having a little trouble adjusting but when he thinks no one is watching he starts to play with the pup!!! Keep you posted!… eternally grateful :0)
Debi, We LOVE her!! Ginger saved our family the other night. About 11 p.m. last Tuesday she insisted on going out for a final potty stop. Terri & I had already been asleep about an hour, so my daughter took her to the back door. Upon turning on the back patio light and stepping out onto the porch, she saw a dark-clothed figure just as he was coming over our backyard fence. As she heard the “thud” of his landing, she jumped back inside the house/slammed the door and fetched us out of bed. (I’m sure the criminal wet his pants at that point.) Thankfully nobody was there by the time I reached the window for an inspection/target practice. I later told Terri, “who needs an alarm? Our dog knows when burglars are coming before they ever hit the ground!” (GG’s brilliant)
Hi Debi, I just want to let you know that Rani (we named him Herbie), is totally fine and having a lot of fun. He has been to the vet. He actually knows “sit” and “jump” as commands as well as his new name. Here are some pics. He is adorable and a celebrity everywhere he goes. Everyone wants to get their picture taken with him. The entire vet office posed for pics with him, he is that cute.
Hello Debi, Hope all is well. I wanted to update you on Gucci! She is doing great and now weighs 2.04 pounds She’s up to date on her shots and very healthy. She gets along great with her big brother and sister Daisy & King the Newfoundlands she likes to go take naps curled up with them! I sent a picture. Have a great day!
I know my husband wrote you but I also really wanted to let you know how great Finch (Benzy) is doing. He is gregarious and affectionate and not at all timid. He was brave and strong through his long long journey. He ate his food, drank his water played with toys and all of us until probably 2 am! I placed his crate next to my bed and got him all comfy when I closed the door he cried and yelled for a while but eventually slept. I know I need to be patient and he was awesome. I let him out around 7 am and he used pee pee pads. We all gave him a standing ovation and lots of positive reinforcement. He really does want to please. He reminds me of my Trevor, his coloring made us laugh, especially coming from his parents? That sable coat shines through and I see my old friend in this beautiful puppy. He is adorable and smart and great. Pictures to come! Thank You!
Hey Debi, Just wanted to follow up to last night. If you are like my wife you like to hear stories, haha. If you are not then I am sorry Haha. As I walked out of the airport, families and old people were all making a fuss over him (Finch, aka Benzy). He is beautiful. He is so social and affectionate. He is extremely smart, haha, no really. He slept very well in his cage which was clean in the morning. He has pee’ed a few times and went poop, all on the pads. We know there will be set backs, but he is doing great right of the gate. He has really handled the trip well. You have done a great job, its obvious he has come from a really great home. My oldest son was asking me how it felt to have picked such a great breeder. I think I found your web site maybe in 2006 ? is that possible ? and bookmarked you ? I don’t know but I’m glad I did. I can’t tell you how happy we are with the puppy, and the overall experience with you. I am a police Detective up here in the county we live in. I feel I am pretty good judge of character, and I am so glad I hit a home run with Dee Dee’s Poms. I will send you some photos of his new home and family soon, just so you can have closure on where he is living. Thank you very much, Pat yourself on the back.
Hello Debi! just wanted to send you a few new photos. Max got his first hair cut the other day and his coat is absolutely fabulous! and that tail! he is such busy boy that its hard to get a good photo! we can’t thank you enough.
Hi Debi – I wanted to let you know that little Abby (aka Jewels) is really doing wonderfully. By Monday she had learned where the four water containers and the two toy boxes are located. And also by Monday she had selected her “special” spot in the den where she takes her nap when she gets tired. She is a very social and loving little girl and follows her brothers and sister around wanting to play. They on the other hand are a work in progress but each day they all become a little more accepting. Abby is a smart little girl and she has the routine down pat. She knows when it’s time to eat, play, rest, go to bed, etc. She also is doing really, really good with the feeding schedule and eating really well. On Tuesday Abby met her new vet and she just captured everybody’s heart. Got a clean bill of health. On Wednesday Abby met her groomer and got her first bath and little trim around her back end. Faced with so many new things in such a short period of time this little baby has done so well. And on top of everything she seems so happy. When we all go outside she just bounces through the grass and throws her little balls up in the air and chases them. She has played with all of her toys that were awaiting her arrival. Hope you are doing well. Your new babies are beautiful. Thanks so much for uniting little Abby with our family and also for bringing her to Houston with you on Saturday. That did save alot of travel time on my part. Always,
Debi, Thought you and yours would enjoy these latest photo’s of our Ginger girl… She has been such a delight to our home. Really settling in well and boy, is she a smart one! Learns real fast and is so obedient!!
Scott, Terri & Rachel Anderson
Hi Debi, I wanted you to know that I took Bella (aka Penelope) to the vet yesterday and they say she is very healthy. She is doing well and sleeps in her pet pen every night. We are having fun spoiling her.
Tia (we call her Bella) is doing great. She gained 9 oz. and has a great personality. We love her.
Just wanted to send you a little update with a new picture of Rocco (formerly Tory). He has been to get his puppy shots and is doing great! He just loves attention and isn’t happy unless he is right in the middle of all the activity. He likes riding in the car which is good because the kids have various after school activities we have to drive to and from. He will apparently do anything for treats and is a pro at “sit”, “lay down”, “shake”, “turn around” and he will even fetch a tiny tennis ball. As for coming when we call him? That only happens when he feels like it. I guess we skipped the basics and went straight for the fun tricks. 😉 He is a funny little guy.
Debi, Lucky (formally Lane) is doing great and is still as cute as ever. He is just shedding a lot. We brought him to the Pet Expo at Houston last weekend. He was absolutely one of the most adorable dogs there. Everyone came to pet him. BTW, congratulations on the new-born babies. Have a good day.
Hi Debi, Remember this little girl (aka Lola)? She’s getting so big and is just an absolute joy. Thank you so much for the patience and help in picking her out. She’s starting to go through a bit of an awkward phase but she’s still as cute and sweet as can be! And just look at how light she’s getting. I’m very curious to see how her color develops in the next few months. I’m already craving (yes, craving) another one. It’s true what they say, you can never have just one pom pom!
Dear Debi, Congrats on all new puppies! We are so happy with Phoebee, great personality and so intelligent. Starting the uglies, turning orange, but still has spots on face and white tip tail. She is still in love with snow…running as fast as she can or jumping like a bunny. Already knows about 6 tricks and loves to retrieve small toys. Last week or so she has found her voice…barking at new people and animals at a safe distance, since she is (not)so tough 🙂 Have a great day! Cyndee CO
Debi, I just wanted to write you a quick update on Samson (formerly Paddington). He is doing great! The kids really shower him with love, attention and activity. He is showing a lot of spunk when he plays but so sweet and affectionate when he’s mellow or tired. He has been such an easy addition to our family. We took him to Colorado with us for a ski trip and he was GREAT on the plane. He just stayed in his carrier and barely made a peep! 🙂 He is so popular anywhere we go – vet’s office, park, etc. – everyone wants to see him. We love him! Here are a few pictures! Julie
Hi Debi, The girls are so cute! They are going to look just like Louis with that beautiful color. Let me try to send you some photos from my phone. Beyond being beautiful he is the SMARTEST and most wonderful. Amazing personality… he is really the most incredible addition to our family and is surrounded by so much love. Glad you are doing well and I am always checking out the website and recommending you to others interested in bringing a pom into the family! Melissa CA
Debi, Tia is doing great. She is a spunky little girl. She went to the vet yesterday and she weighed 1 lb. 9 oz. They said she is adorable and in great health and may be lethargic since they were giving her a distemper shot. She got home slept for an hour and then she is off and running again. Our other dog and Tia are getting along great. We have a rag doll cat which she is still suspicious about. She is sleeping great at night. She usually wakes up about 7:00 pm to start her day. She’s more than I could ever ask for in a Pomeranian and I love her so much. Thank you for taking such great care of her. You can really tell she was loved from the beginning and had consistent and loving care. Thank you again and I would only be too glad to be a reference!! Best, Betty
Hi Debi, Just thought I’d drop you a line and tell you about Synemon. She is doing really well and has bonded with Reesie like they both know they are sisters LOL. Not lightening up much yet but I’m seeing 4 distinct colors in her undercoat. There is a good deal of light cream, a beige, a medium tan and the orange around her head and her feet. The tip of her tail seems to be staying black and the undercoat there is black as well, but only about the last inch or so. Her muzzle is staying black as well. She has two bands of color around her middle, the tan around her shoulders and beige toward her back and tail with the black heaviest there. The cream is on her underbelly and chest, and the underside of her tail. She is the smartest dog I have ever been around. And she is such a cuddle bug. Always wants up for hugs and kisses. So glad I decided to get another one! She is definitely turning out to be my dog while Reesie prefers Don (my husband) so works out well. Have been trying to get new pictures but they all still look like her 7 week ones. Hard to get past the black to see the subtle changes in color. I will be clipping her for the summer in another month or two and maybe then we will see a better indication of her end coloring. Marcia CA
Hi Debi, Izzy (formerly Lizzy) just had her first vet visit with us and she was such a good girl. She has such a BIG personality…we just love her. Izzy is getting along with all of the dogs, but really fancies Sadie, our Pitt Bull/Whippet. Izzy follows her everywhere and has become her tail. Izzy is loving her new home and goes potty on her pad and outside already. She’s such a great new addition to our family. Cheers, Laura and Justin
Reba (formerly Lola) is doing fantastic! She’s already potty trained (which blows my mind. Were you working with her prior to her coming home?) and she sleeps through the night. She’s adjusted to her new home and her little personality is starting to show. She is just sweet as can be too! She goes in for a round of shots on Monday. We are at work right now and she is playing with a co worker’s 120lb chocolate lab as we speak…. I just love her to pieces! Sarah
Hey Debi, All humans are excited about new addition… two older dogs not so sure yet;-) Phoebee is keeping her distance from them, as she seems to understand she is the newcomer. We are going to take it slow until all feel comfortable 🙂 We are all so happy…thank you sooo much:-D Cyndee CO
Debi, I just love Edie (formerly June) and so does everyone else. I took her to an outdoor mall recently and felt like I was with a celebrity – heads turning, people fawning over her! I overheard a few people saying, “That’s the cutest dog I’ve ever seen.” More importantly, she gets lots of compliments on her sweet temperament and happy, playful personality. In just six weeks she’s been on a 1,500-mile road trip, attended several holiday parties, aced puppy preschool and met hundreds of people and dozens of dogs and kids! Thanks again for my wonderful new friend! Erica
Hello Debi, It is hard to imagine that one month ago today, I was anxiously awaiting Leia’s arrival at Sacramento Airport. Since then, I can tell you that she has been diligently studying and putting into practice the manual you sent with her: “How to Win the Hearts of Your New Family”. Each and every day she brings a smile to our faces and joy to our hearts! Quick to learn, she is excellent with the potty training, comes when called (most of the time), and very proudly fetches the ball. I feel so blessed to have her in my life!!! The entire experience with Dee Dees Pomeranians has been extremely positive. Thank you Debi, you do a great job! Sincerely, Janice CA
Hi Debi, Hope all is well with you! I just wanted to let you know that we absolutely looove Ziggy to death! She is such a doll! She has such a big personality and wants to play every second she can. Her and Zoey get along just like sisters do. Ziggy loves to chase the cats around the house too! Every place we go she gets a lot of attention. She will be a year in January already. I just wanted to update you so you could see how she is doing. Her coat is coming in beautifully. The groomer even said that she has never seen Pomeranian hair this silky and that she was bred really well. Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving/Christmas! I will try and keep pictures coming. Ziggy should witness her 1st snowfall here pretty soon and that’s always a fun day! Jakki MN
Good afternoon Debi! My name is Jami and I purchased “Ritzie” from you back in June. Just wanted to give you an update. She is doing great! She has the most precious personality, she is my constant companion, sleeps with my husband and I every night and is just completely spoiled rotten!!! I just can’t tell you how sweet and loving and cuddly she is! We just love her so much and wanted to let you know how good she is doing!!! Jami
Hi Debi, I just wanted to give you an updated photo of my little Snickers. He turned 7 months on Saturday and I took this photo and absolutely loved his expression!! He has brought so much joy to me. He’s very intelligent and well behaved (for the most part lol). Thank you so much for this little darling!! Brianna
Debi, She (formerly Bonnie) had a fun but very busy first day in Keller. She is a dream. So much like Tazzy, but just enough different to have her own personality. She loves Soxx and follows him from room to room. She is happy to be held by everyone. She is so tiny, but has not shivered once. Loved her first plane ride from Austin, Texas. I had not heard her bark until yesterday when she wanted Soxx to play. But so far she doesn’t bark at the doorbell or when new people come in the house, I can only keep my fingers crossed for this miracle to continue. She was born June 11 so just turning 12 weeks at a big whopping 2 pounds 4 ounces. Probably will be anywhere from 5 to 6 lbs as an adult. This little delight is helping my heart to heal. Tazzy was so precious and we all miss her. Have a Great Day! Jennifer
Debi, Pics of Tinker and Belle….thought you might like to see how their coats have changed. Love them so much! They are both sweet and very smart. They like to explore and don’t stay still for long. They only bark at each other when fighting over bones or toys – never at the doorbell or people. It’s unusual, but great! People are often surprised at how quiet they are. They are both very fussy about being groomed. Drama queens!! They love to run fast in the yard – like grandma Dani. They are pampered little babies. We adore them! They still have some black on their coats… tri-colored for now. I will send more pics as they continue growing up 🙂 Hope all is well with you. I’m looking forward to seeing your new babies due at the end of October. Addy
Hi. Here is a photo of “our” son, yours and mine. He is the most beautiful dog I have ever seen! I was prepared for him to be BIG because he looked like the biggest in his litter and his picture looked BIG, but in real life he is tiny. I told my students his eyes are as big as periods in their sentences! He ran straight in from the front door, rushed to me (through various hallways and rooms, jumped on my lap and kissed my lips. He is the only puppy I have had that does NOT run away when you bend down to pick him up. He is used to being cuddled. I just love him so much…..We are so in love with him we can’t see straight. I’m at work right now but at least I can forward this picture to you of his FIRST night in Alaska. He arrived all clean. He papers showed that he had urinated during the trip and ate very little. Pictures do NOT do Jasper justice. He is much more spectacular in person. Oh, he went on his first family walk. One of us took 2 dogs and 1 of us took him to avoid anyone stepping on Jasper. He would walk 15 feet and then cry to be picked up and cuddled…. Mel & Gary Alaska
Hi Debi. We’ve had a wonderful time! June is now “Edie” – she responded best to that and everyone’s agreed it suits her well. I had friends over to meet her last night and both her looks and personality charmed everyone instantly. She loves all the toys I got for her and it’s so fun to watch her pounce on them. She puts herself to bed in her crate – the first night, she just walked right in and went to sleep. She is napping in there right now. She does cry if I leave her, but only for a few minutes. It’s hard to work with her around because she’s so cute and funny, but she is very good at entertaining herself and will eventually settle down with a bone. I will give another update with pics soon. Thanks for my great new friend! Erica
Dear Phil/Debi, Thought you’d like to know of Ginger’s progress this week. She is having a great time! Weather here has been perfect for Houston. Cool temp’s at night, nice dry air x day (we’re used to very humid conditions). Ginger loves the backyard. She plops down in the grass and starts chewing (anything) at the drop of a hat…grass blades, dry leafs, etc. We run a fair bit when we go out too. She’s got plenty o’ energy!! Potty training is still “a work in progress” but she is doing very well. Last night she whimpered at me while I sat on the couch — needed to go out. She’s absolulely brilliant!!! Last night was also the best we’ve had pertaining to her adjustment to the small cage where she sleeps. Understandable. She loves being near us by day, so bed time isn’t all that appealing with its lone aspects (though we leave quiet radio/nightlite on). There was not a whimper one when she went to bed last night (compared to Wednesday, when she screeched like a parot-monkey!). It’s about time for her first bath. We may do that tonight or tomorrow. We are all smitten with the Princess! Her markings and head set are simply stunning. It will be interesting to watch her develop and see the strong qualities of her mom/dad expressed. Can’t say how happy we all are with her. Thanks again, Scott, Terri & Rachel
Hi Debi, I purchased Ritzie from you. She is out of Ruby and Simba. Just wanted to drop you a quick note about her. We took her for her 6 month check up today and she is just perfect. Totally healthy in every way. The vet said looked like she had really strong healthy knees and her teeth were growing in just as they should. Today she was 4.4 pounds and she is almost to the day 6 months old. Thank you again for her, we just adore her! Jami
Hi Debi, Persia has proved to be the most energetic and intelligent puppy we’ve ever had. In fact, all my friends having met her have racked their memories and no one has ever seen anything like her. At this moment she is back in my ‘studio’ area, with a fence around her and her crate, she’s snoozing to Tony Bennet and k.d. Lang duets on the CD player. Last night we made it through from 11:00 pm to 5:30 sound asleep. My husband gets up early and takes her for a walk. I take her mid-day and in the evening. Walter, our big boy Pom is still sulking on the new addition to the family, but our Jack Russell mix, Clyde does not mind being in the same room with her. I’m told that in time Walter will come around. On day two she caught a lizard in a spit second on the back porch—it was a chilly morning–getting it out of her mouth…now that was fun. Wishing you all the best, Nancy
Debi, Thank you so much for your recommendations! Our little girl is a doll and we all adore her! Jack and Crystal are her parents. She is black and white and still quite sassy! Thank you for the beautiful job you do on bringing more joy into our lives through your puppies and your wonderful website. Sincerely, Debe & Charlie
Attached are pictures. This little guy sure does keep us busy. He now sits, stays, gets down, & stands on his back legs for liver treats. He is now on one of his water beds beside me at the computer. Rocky wants to go with me everywhere. He is quite the traveler. Thank you so much for sharing him with us. Fay WV
Hi Debi and Phil, I was so sad to hear about your loss of the wee girl. It must be so devastating for the tiny babies to arrive and then have one fighting for her life. Your Poms are so precious and I feel blessed to have little Nikki (aka Bonnie). She is loving her new life, all my family and friends love her too. Yesterday, we went shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond. We only do one store and then come home to rest. I bought her a baby play and go play pen. She stands up on the mesh and wants to be put in to play. I take it out side if I need to water, so that she can be outside with me. She is liking her harness and car seat more. I will sent you a picture of her in her car seat. Wishing you happiness with the other new babies. Have a great day! Jennifer
Hello Debi, Hope you are well. I haven’t sent any pictures of Mr. Cooper (Bolt) in two years. He has now added kayaking to his repertoire. He has seen the Oregon coast and a visit to the San Juan Islands. Took him kayaking in Lake Union (center of Seattle) on Labor Day and kept hearing “There’s a Pomeranian in that kayak!” He has also added — sticking his head out the car window on forest service roads and will now swim to fetch a stick — though after he has had enough he runs away with the stick. Deidre and Cooper OR
Hi Debi! We are loving Kaia (aka Zina) every minute (although she’s in her crate right now and not so happy with me). All is going pretty well so far. She is adjusting to the smells and sounds of our home and feeling comfortable in her surroundings. She is absolutely a show-stopper that’s for sure. We took her Saturday morning to our local pet small store in search of a couple toys and a harness/leash. The owner was just in awe of her. Our neighbors are just in love with her as well. Everyone just thinks she is amazing and loves her coloring and look. We are very happy and proud of her already. We’ve taught her a few tricks so far including sit and lie down. She’s absolutely trying to chew on anything she can find, so we are trying to fulfill that with toys she CAN chew on. She even started eating pretty well starting Friday morning – I was pleased to see that. Getting her to settle down in her crate has been the most challenging I would say, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. It’s just hard to hear her crying so much. She bites the crate a lot and that just scares me. She seems to just want to sleep directly on the tile rather than a bed so we are trying a tall playpen type crate so she has some tile access. Any advice you have would be appreciated of course! Take care, Cathy
Hi Debi! I just wanted to tell you how much I love Maizie (aka Tink), and what a precious little girl she is. She is full of pep and energy and loves to give kisses. She runs through the house, and only stays in her playpen for meals or if I have to leave the house. Maizie decided she likes sleeping under my bed instead of in her (bedroom) crate. I put the steps back since she’s grown, so she can walk/run up to my bed – and down again. She is very smart and very happy. She and Mia love each other. Maizie also enjoys “playing” with the kitties, or trying to play with them, anyway. It’s comical to watch. I think she likes the birds, too. Take care, Margie
Hi Mommy #1, I wanted to write and let you know I am doing great; I really love my new Mommy and Daddy and my new home! I have my very own room in my new house…they call it the ‘laundry room’, but they’ll soon figure out it’s ‘Ellie’s Room’!. I also have a bed in Mommy’s office and one in Daddies office. I’ve never had so much stuff of my own before! I have two favorite couches too….one in the living room and one in the den. They keep blankets for me on both of them, and I’ve learned that all I have to do is jump up on either of them, turn over on my back, and someone will always give me a tummy rub! I love it! I have my own private place in the front yard to ‘do my business’, so I know not to go in the house. I’ve had several people visit so far, and they all say I am a great doggie. I’m starting to get a little embarrassed with all these compliments. Sometimes the door on my crate swings shut…but it’s no problem. If I want in it, I have figured out how to use my paw and open it so I can get in. Pretty smart, huh? Anyway, I wanted to say hi….I miss you (some) but I LOVE my new home and parents! Love, Ellie Belly
Hi Debi, We are adjusting well to our beautiful new girl [Beth] and she is having a blast playing with our new kitten. The old cat is still not too happy about the whole thing but she has her own agenda. The dog is so happy and fun and we feel blessed to have her. I have been sleeping on the floor with her in the family room while she adjusts to her kennel, slowly, but what a great girl. Luke…..Lilli’s better half WY
Hi Debi, Our little guy [Charlie, aka Tad] is adapting beautifully. He is eating, and all systems are working normally. He is so affectionate, this is attributable to you folks. Thank you for this little guy. Sincerely, Judi
Hi Debi, I just wanted to send you some pics of Simba (formerly Desi). He is a spunky little one — big attitude in a small package… and growing fast. We love him. Just thought you would like to see some pics and maybe add them to your site. Monica
Hi Debi. Just wanted to share this photo with you. Mickey got a swimming pool for his first birthday since the hot Florida sun keeps him from going outside too much. He had a lot of fun and will now be able to enjoy his summers more! He has been such a blessing to our family and we adore him! Tammy FL
The girls are amazing!! We are in love! Thank you Debi!! The Johnsons
Hi Debi, I bought Sasha from you. Her parents were Simba & BB… she is the closest thing to perfect that is possible. She is charting at about 4.5lbs. Here is a picture. Mike
Hi Debi, Sorry it has taken me a while to send updates. Riley is doing just fabulous! He follows me all around the house and works with me in my home office. We just love him!!!! I thought you would enjoy some pictures. I have included one in his car seat (LOL), this is how he travels with us. I never used one before but it really makes sense, they are safer and can see easily out the window. Also gives him a place to cuddle up in to sleep for those extra long trips. Take Care! Andrea
Hey Debi, I just had to send you this pic of him – he looks just like a little fox! 🙂 He is such a little darling and so very smart. He has already learned if he wants to be picked up he needs to sit first, when he goes potty outside he turns around immediately for his treat, and he’s learning to lay down on command. He’s made friends with my mom’s sheltie (who is the most gentle dog I’ve ever known). He runs like a little bullet in her yard – so cute!! 🙂 Brianna
Hi Debi! Maizie’s second week here has been more fun, more antics and more love and kisses. She already “owns” the place, and is as curious as my kitties whom she loves to chase around the house. It is comical to watch this little puppy chasing the much larger cats. She seems to enjoy playing with cat toys as well or better than her own. I was shocked last night when she walked/climbed up the stairs I bought Mia and Zoe, so they could climb up to my bed. She did this about five times, until I removed the stairs, fearing she could fall onto the carpet. I will put them back when she is old enough to sleep on the bed – with me. We are still trying to decide on a registered name. Maizie is eating well and seems to be enjoying her life here. If I didn’t have so many other animals, I’d add another of your darling pups to my family. I am taking pictures, but haven’t put them on the computer as yet. I will eventually send them. I hope all is well with you and your family. Take care, Margie
On May 31, 2012, Charlie (aka Tad) had puppy vaccinations and his puppy check-up by Dr. Gosney. I was pleased to hand him your veterinarian’s report you provided. Dr. Gosney complimented you regarding the report. Upon Dr. Gosney’s physical examination of Charlie, Dr. Gosney said this little guy’s patellae are really sound. Thought coming from this most renown dog vet you would also like to hear Dr. Gosney was also very pleased with Charlie overall, as am I. Sincerely, Judi TX
Hi Debi, I cannot even describe how much joy this guy has brought me (and my mom). I had no clue what kind of personality he had compared to his litter mates but, I truly feel that while he has great looks he has an equally great personality. He is such a little lap dog! He loves to be cuddled but the best part for me is that he is super calm. Loud noises, car rides, my cat, walking on a leash, being handled… nothing seems to phase him and that is (at least to me) the sign of him being a great little dog. 🙂 Thank you do much for this little darling!! We all love him including my cat, Chloe. She has been trying to play with him!! It has been quit entertaining to watch!! 🙂 Brianna
Hi Debi, Here are some pictures of our baby! She is getting so big and has a big personality. She is such a good dog and we love her to death! She is a little fish and loves to swim. She always wants to be by our other dog Zoey or chase the cats around the house. Just wanted to thank you for this great addition for our family. Jakki Paape MN
Debi, Sorry I haven’t had time to send an e-mail, but want you to know that Tink/Maizie is AMAZING! She has adapted unbelievably to her new home. Michelle took this picture to send to my sister. Actually, when not playing with us, she is spending time in her “playpen.” It is in hexagon shape, and allows a great deal of play/eating/sleeping room for the little one. She is absolutely wonderful, and we all are in love with her. It was great meeting you and your beautiful family. I will give you more details later – we are going to see Dr. Jordan today. Poms are his favorite little dogs – I know he will love Maizie. Take care, Margie
Hi Debi, Everything is going well. Lil’ Gable is sooo cute and he’s doing extremely well with his potty training(lol). He’s so smart!! He wakes me up at 2:57 am to go poop and pee outside. For a Tiny guy , I must say I am truly impressed. He hasn’t had any accidents in his kennel. He loves to be around people and he does three little circle jumps at my feet, to let me know he wants to be picked up (absolutely adorable!). I am so happy I purchased him from you. I’ll send you some pictures in a few days. Keep in touch and Thank you very much! Eveanne M. Stinson NJ
Debi, Just wanted you to know Zachary is a champion therapy dog with half a dozen visits under his collar now and a rapidly growing fan club. Such a great rider in the car! Such a lover with everyone, dogs and people alike! So obedient and really great with his potty habits! Overall a little angel. I will send more photos soon. We love him! Candy
Debi, We are very pleased to announce that ZZ (aka Zinger) passed his temperament testing Tuesday night and is now an official AAT dog for Faithful Paws! Our AKC evaluator was very impressed with his sweetness and obedience and couldn’t stop snuggling with him! She is positive he will be a great hit with everyone he meets, especially the children and seniors, and I sure don’t disagree. He will make his first visit tomorrow to Hermann Memorial Children’s Hospital with his brothers Tater Tot and CrackerJacques. I know we’ll have a ball! ZZ sends licks and hugs your way! Candy
Hey Debi, Just wanted to send you an update on Stella. She is doing great! The vet check up went well and she has adjusted just fine. We love her so much and she knows who her mommy and daddy are 🙂 Hope you enjoy the picture! Stella got a haircut this weekend. She is up to 3 pounds 3 ounces and almost completely Potty trained. Stella is such a good puppy and loves people. We are enjoying her and love her so much! Jenna & Andrew
Debi, I had such good intentions of sending you some new pictures of August (I have taken hundreds as you can imagine), but have been remiss. My travel schedule has been unusually heavy since January and it is hard to keep up! I love looking at all the new babies on your website — so beautiful (but I believe we have the most beautiful of all)! August has completed Beginner and Intermediate levels of Puppy School! He is so smart, although a bit stubborn : ) He has learned all his basics and is learning to combine them as well. He struggles with anything that requires him to be still or to stay, and he talks in class (just like him mom used to), but he is really getting the hang of it. We have not attempted the Advanced level yet — he may need to get a little older and better socialized first. He is usually very good at greeting people politely (if not enthusiastically) but he is less predictable with other dogs — not at all aggressive, but somewhat fearful and very talkative. But practice makes perfect and we will keep working on it. We took him to Santa Fe for Christmas and he saw his first snow. He had his own fan club at the Hilton — they waited for him in the lobby and called him by name when he came prancing through to go out. He did well on the plane too — he was in the cabin of course. The descent seemed to bother his ears so I had an ice cube at the ready and of course, treats make everything better no matter what the situation! We are traveling for Easter as well — his first lengthy car ride since we picked him up at eight weeks! We have had several requests from friends to stop along the way so they can meet August (not see us, but the pup!) Your wildflowers sound divine! After the horrible destruction last Summer, I know it is such a blessing to see signs of life. I took some pictures of August this morning — one of my neighbors planted their entire front yard in Bluebonnets and they are beautiful. August also thought the one he tasted was delicious : ) He is all boy, all Pom and we love him to pieces! And as you can see in the pictures, when not wearing a mortarboard, he also likes to smile! He makes us laugh when he gathers up all his toys and flops down for a nap, and when he sleeps in my office with me on his back, feet up in the air. He is most definitely not stressed out as you can see — Randle and I have decided that is the way we should all live! I hope you and Phil and all the babies are doing well and enjoying life. I can see what is keeping you busy these days — so adorable. I am especially in love with Maple : ) Hope you enjoy the pictures — our baby is 8 months old already! My best, Stacy
She (Sophie, formerly Bea) has the cutest personality and we are both crazy about her. Randy is a little too lenient about crating her. Last night during the storm he took her out of it and let her roam around the laundry room. Several mistakes, which he had to clean up! She’s asleep right now next to her bed. She plays and plays and then just plops down and falls to sleep immediately! She’s doing great with the tinkling outside but haven’t caught her with the other one. Guess I need to keep my eyes on her every second or be more patient when I take her outside! It seems that I look away for 1 second and that’s when the little stinker sneaks one in. The other dogs still haven’t warmed up to her yet but that’s okay. I don’ t think that the older Yorkie will ever have much to do with her but I think Oliver will gradually come around. We’re doing great and are thrilled that she’s part of our family. Fondly Linda TX
We finally are persevering and winning the puppy war, I type as he is trying to demolish my sweater. Zach is sleeping somewhat peacefully in his playpen in our den overnight and when we’re away. When I cough during the night he hears me and cries although the den is down a long hallway from our bedroom. Light sleeper. I am inundating him with chew toys as he is honing those needle teeth on my jewelry chests in the morning when I get ready. He loves shredding potty pads too. He eats well and has learned to drink rather than guzzle so no more spitting up. He follows me around relentlessly and Tater knows him as “Mini Me”. He loves to stretch Tater’s patience. But I think we are prevailing and he sleeps on my lap as if he’s in a tropical hammock, stretched out and grinning in his slumber. Such a darling–when he sleeps! He says “hi” to his first mommy. Candy
Debi She (Sasha, formerly Bianca) is perfect. She is so sweet and so smart. She is eating and going potty on her pads. She and Bentley are getting to know each other. She cries at night, but she is with us during the day and just plays quietly. She is so pleasant and such a good puppy. We love her very much. Here are a couple pictures. We are calling her Sasha. Mike TX
Hi Debi, Just wanted to drop you a note along with the latest pictures of our two baby girls. Bella is just the sweetest, smartest and loyal baby girl; we just adore her. She is a daddy’s girl and they sit and watch tv together every evening. Miette is a spunky, busy bee that is just the perfect fit with Tori. When Tori leaves for school every morning Miette sits at the window and howls for her. They are both loved and cherished! Thank you a million times over, Heather Mosier
A friend stopped by to look at Sophie (aka Bea) and really wants one. I sent her your email so maybe you’ll be hearing from her in the future! Sophie is doing just great! She’s already learned to tune out Oliver when he barks at the TV. I couldn’t be happier with her…well, I could have another one, but four dogs would be too many. Thanks for having such wonderful dogs! Sincerely, Linda Werhane TX P.S. How will I ever get anything done when I just want to play with her?
Hi Debi, Thanks for answering back. I did order more of the Life’s Abundance, but didn’t know what the other one was. He is doing awesome! I took him for his vaccinations last week. He did amazing, did not fuss, or get upset with anyone. Just waited to be cuddled and loved. In fact, all the vet techs wanted to take him home. Dr. Strickert is in love with him. She says he is absolutely perfect! She spent 13 years with me and my last Pom, and knows how trying it was on me. She sang your praises when I told her about you and your business. I feel so blessed to have found you. Thank you for everything. Katrina
Hi Debi Pierre now known as Riley is doing wonderful. We say he is brilliant LOL. He sleeps thru the night and already knows to go to the door to go out. He is getting lots of love here. I will keep you posted on his progress and also send you pictures. Thanks so much for doing what you love. I can definitely tell he comes from a loving environment. Andrea
Debi, Updated pictures of BENZ!! HE’S JUST STUNNING!!! I hope all is going well!! THANK YOU AGAIN : ) LOVE, Ashley & Benz
Debi, Thought you might like a picture of Sunny, now known as Angel. She is very happy and doing well. Don and Betty Gober
Hello Debi, Here is a picture of me with the Boys….Tazz & Toby. They are doing great, Tazz loves life, his favorite thing is to run figure 8’s. Toby is a Moma’s boy he loves nothing more than to seat in my lap. He is still just a baby. This week he has finally started to potty off the sidewalk. Ha! He just never wanted to get off of it. Tazz is a great big brother. He will herd Toby if it is time to go inside. He runs to the house then back to Toby, jumps on him as if to say, come on Moma said, let’s go inside! They are both a joy, we were gone to market this past week and I had to leave them with a friend of mine, and I missed them so much. When we all got home, we slept all day Sunday on the couch. Thanks a million for such sweet babies, Tammy Crowell
Debi, Thank you so much for giving our cotton ball life! Your passion and love for Pomeranians is extraordinary. The dogs are beautiful, well behaved and make the cutest little puppies in the wide world. Words are not sufficient but I’ll try anyways. We are eternally grateful for your generosity, which made possible adding the little guy to our family. Kirby is the perfect addition to our clan and is such a wonderful, playful soul, He’s fun-filled, energetic, smart, responsive, loving, cuddly and knows he’s a part of this family. We’ve brought him to my parent’s house to meet everyone and the minute we returned to our house he acted differently, like he knew our home was his home. He crouches, barks, and runs towards Hana (11 year old, 100 lb female Akita) to play…absolutely hilarious. I’ve recorded video after video of Kirby “playing” with Hana and the three cats. Since he’s young and uncoordinated, he’s spastic so he kind of freaks them out. They’re still trying to figure him out. Turtle (1 1/2 year old male cat) has gotten comfortable with him and will engage now. Best, most entertaining thing to watch, better than anything on TV. He goes everywhere with us, quite literally. My purse makes a comfy, cozy transportable bed so it’s easy to bring him with us. We also have a carrier with a blanket and toys in there for the longer trips. He’s my little buddy! I love him so purely and wholeheartedly. I could tell you millions of stories, but I won’t bore you. I know you know and have experienced it all before! People seem to comment right and left when we’re in public. It is quite the sight to see my little 2 pounder and a large wolf dog walking together. He’s very good on the leash by the way; picked it up the first time we put the harness on him. My thanks are infinite. He’s THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER! I told Chris he can put a bow on his head and re-gift him time and time again. I’ll smile and love it 🙂 Thank you, Chris & Elise
Hi Debi, Fonzi has just been a pleasure and unbelievably smart! He is very obedient, sweet and gets along with Mootsie so well. They play and wrestle all day. I know he will be glad to see snow again because last year he just loved to bury his nose in the snow and pulled back when we were ready to go in. I’ve enclosed 4 pictures so you can see how cute he is. Again, I hope all iswell and you get a lot of rain soon! Take care, Jean MT
Beaux’s doing so well. He does tons of tricks and loves to sit in his car seat and look out the window. He is the absolute love of my life. I don’t think anything else has brought me this much joy. I’m thankful for him every single day. Thank you so much, I hope your holidays are going well! Elna and Beaux
Debi, I just love seeing all the beautiful little boys and girls you have and we cannot wait to give Harry a brother. The last two were killers for me but I think we are going to wait until Harry is three (Next year) for that. He is such a joy we love him so much. Funny little guy with a HUGE personality with a coat to match! We cannot get over the hair on him…. He is so friendly and has certainly won over many hearts in his short time with us. I have two recent photos for you and will send a video soon. Thank you for such a gift as Polar/Harry Chase Bailey you were right he was our dog from day one….picked just for us. As his brother George Harry Bailey too has a Wonderful Life! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Linda & Patrick Pittelli CA
Debi, Hi! Im writing to you because Benz is now a year old! I can’t believe how fast this year has come and gone! He is such a character always up and going and just never stops!! 🙂 I am so thankful for him and for you doing such a great job at what you do!! The groomers love him and say his coat is just beautiful and will only get better! SO again thank you so much! Enclosed is a picture that was taken few weeks ago. We are hoping to take some holiday photos and we will be sending them your way as soon as we get them. Love, Ashley & Benz
Debi, I am sending you some pics of “The Boys”. We are having so much fun. I love being a new mom. Thanks for bringing them into the world for me! Tammy
We are both so proud of our boys. Stephen couldn’t wait to see them. I brought them by our Vet when I got home and he checked them out for me. A friend of mine was there with me to help with both of them. They are both just beautiful. I couldn’t wait to get up this morning to play with them. I took them outside, let them eat and we played and went back outside. They are just as cute as they can be! I will continue to send pictures. They are both doing well, we love them. Tazz is just that, he wants to be the top dog. Toby is the baby and wants to snuggle. The two of them are so much fun. I can’t tell you how much I love them already. Tazz has gotten the potty routine down. Toby does most of the time, but again, he is a baby and does whatever is easy for him. Thanks for the beautiful boys. Tammy
Hello, I just wanted to start off by saying that “Secret” who is now Daisy is a sweetheart & very energetic. We took her to the vet today & he said she looks really good. She now weighs 1.56 lbs. She goes back in two weeks for shots. Thank you for allowing us to add her to our family… She is loved. Ashley
We love lil Kirby (formerly “Vader”). He’s been such a joy, so full of energy and spunk. Immediately, he took to his new siblings. He chases Hana (11 year old female Akita) around and wants to play with her. When the kitties come inside he runs up to them and barks. He likes them, is happy they are home, and follows them wherever they go. They haven’t quite figured him out, well except for the 1 1/2 year old male, Turtle. He is very curious about Kirby and spends much of the day inside laying near him and getting to know him more and more. We are so grateful for our ball of love. He completes the Jamieson clan. You’re so very sweet to let us come over for hours and play with the cutest puppies in the whole wide world. We have already developed an everlasting love for him! Thanks again:) Elise
Hi debi! Just updating you on Boogie (aka Ashton). I received his papers, took him to the vet yesterday and everything looks great! He’s really turning into the funniest dog ever!! We just love him! He even has his own facebook and becoming quite popular! Boogie Pomeranian. Andy Cohen from Bravo even commented on one of his pictures. Pretty funny!! Amanda OK
Hi Debi! Sorry it has been so long since I have sent photos of our little man. He is five months old and still changing color! It is hard to show you how beautiful he has become…mostly because he is in constant motion : ) His favorite toy is still Bobbie (our youngest cat) but he also loves his crinkly squeaky newspaper and has made up his own game of soccer with a plastic whiffle ball he can nose around and use his paws to bat all around the house! We started puppy school two weeks ago and they taught us to use a clicker to help him learn new commands but when we started practicing at home, the clicker scared him! So we are leaving that out! But he is doing well with “sit” and “watch me” and he is doing great on a leash! We are still working on the housebreaking but once we figured out part of it was overfeeding (our fault) things are going a little better. He is very charming and can usually convince Randle that he needs a treat or a snack so I have to keep an eye on both of them! I hope you are doing well and life is getting back to normal after the fires. Also wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know Randle and I are very thankful for the extra five pounds of joy in our house this year! Sending more photos in separate emails. Take care, Stacy
Bitty is doing great! She did eat and drank some water. She is fitting in so well. She plays a lot too. She & I went running around the living room for quite sometime! She has so much energy but she also takes a few short naps! When I can’t watch her I put her in her pen for a few minutes and when I go to get her she’s sound asleep. She is very confident & slept straight through the night with zero whining! She is amazing. She also loves to drag toys around & to run after our adult Pom! She is so outgoing and so curious & we are really enjoying her! She is so much fun! Rhonda
CJ is GREAT! She’s a good little traveler, which is wonderful.
We got her a little play yard set up in our bedroom. She’s got a fluffy furry bed, her kennel, water & food, a wee pad, and about 10 toys. She’s such a good girl, has been using the wee pad so well! We have had lots of fun with her today. The poor baby is worn out. We’re leaving her in her play yard. She seems to be having a good time playing for a few minutes then relaxing in her box or her fluffy bed. She’s been the star of several videos today. Such a cutie. Hopefully we will all get some rest tonight. I’m not foreseeing any problems. I’ll update you again soon. ❤ Kristi
I just wanted to send you some pics of Birdie. She is so funny and is just something. I am not sure what all to say about her but she is a good girl. She does have one truly bad toy dog habit! She likes to have what we call a “911 moment”. That is when the pom can not to save her life shut up!!! LOL The other 2 poms are so quiet but birdie makes up for them both!~ 😉 If this is her only bad habit I really can not complain. She is such a lover and takes her job as office manager VERY VERY seriously! Which is good because the other dogs don’t care. Well here are a few photos of her. And no more because these “potato chips” are making me fat! LOL So I hope you enjoy the photos. These are in the shop and they were helping me make flowers for the grooming dogs.
It has been much smoother with Strudel these past few weeks, when she finally started sleeping through the night. And … I finally got a good new photo. We were at Bark in the Park, where the minor league baseball team plays. They have events for the local animal shelter. Strudel saw her first baseball game with lots of people with their dogs!!! The second photo shows the mascots. Please don’t be offended, but her middle name is Strudel Cupcake “don’t eat that you twit!” If we don’t play with her enough she will still put anything, mostly grass, in her mouth!!! Wow!! She’ll be nine months next week!!! Regards,
Nancy & Pat
Hi Debi…just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that Mickey (Cole) is doing great! You would not believe how much he’s grown. His first vet check went great and they all fell in love with him. He actually fell asleep while they were checking his ears. He has not been alone once since we brought him home so he’s gonna be really spoiled. He’s such a sweet boy and only barks when he’s trying to get your attention for something. The vet wanted to see him every three weeks until he turns 16 weeks so I’m not taking him to any public places until I know his immune system is stronger. He always seeks out some of the tightest, most obscure places to take naps…but he’s so cute. I’ve enclosed a couple of pics. You can hardly see his face in any of the pics cause he’s so black! Looks like his hair is changing a little, but he’s still the best little guy ever. Miro’s parents are living with us from Bulgaria and they’ve never had a dog before…they absolutely love him like a grandson. When I get home from work everyday I get a full report on his daily activities…its pretty funny.
I know you miss your babies, but I want you to know he’s loved and well taken care of. I will send more pics in the future.
Just wanted to let you know that Bentley (formerly Toto) is doing great. He has been such a joy to have and he is the smartest little guy. He is working hard on learning commands and responds well to sit, but stay is a whole other thing. I can’t thank you enough for choosing me for his new family. I have attached my fav pic of him, it was difficult to choose only one. : )
Debi & Phil:
I was reading your lastest blog post, and can really empathize. It MUST be so sad to let those little furry cherubs leave your abode. It would break my heart! A week ago we took a daytrip to the Grand Canyon. Do you think Petisa (“Mimi”) is your first Pom baby to visit this natural wonder? She was MOST interested in the squirrels! Attached is a photo of our trio that day. I can report that ‘Tisa is starting into her “uglies.” Looking pretty scraggly now, with her apricot colors growing darker on her ears, back, and tip of her tail. Funny thing, she has sprouted some pretty long white “horns” (tufts of hair) in front of her ears. They are so unique that I doubt we’ll ever groom them back. I just hope it won’t be too long until her full coat blossoms. She is soooo smart! I noticed the other day that she has a hunter’s “theory of mind.” She saw some quail on top of the roack wall, but rather than running across the patio straight at them, she went over to the side of the house where they couldn’t see her, and snuck up on them by sticking close to the wall. Clever girl! Of course, she also uses that tactic to get away with chewing something she shouldn’t: she’ll turn her back to me so that I can’t see what she’s got in her mouth. We’re sure loving this li’l girl! Thank you for bringing her into this world! Best wishes to all your “pack”!
Hi Debi, Rocco is doing great!! Such a good boy!! He is so smart, sweet and playful. We really do love him! He is coming along with housetraining already. I would say he is about 97 – 99% with the wee wee pad (as long as he is not too far away) – which is fantastic! – So smart! I have to say that his coloring is just beautiful – he has so many cream colors underneath. It is going to be interesting to see him grow and the colors that will come out. We are going to take him to the vet on Friday – I appreciate everything and will keep you posted. Kim
We enjoyed meeting you and Phil. We already love Rocco!! We are going to keep the name too! He just looks like a Rocco. He is doing very well. He ate and played and slept and is playing a bit more right now before bed. He is so cute! We really love him and can tell he is going to be a great addition to our family. Thank you again! Kim
We are all doing great — we have decided to name “Buster” August (Dee Dee’s August Rain….Augie!) and he is such a joy. He loves to run and play and is completely in love with Bobbie, our youngest cat. Bobbie has almost no tail (thus her name) which probably saves her from more frequent attacks. She jumped in with him yesterday (he was in my office in his screened in portable crate) and took a nap with him for an hour or so. When he woke, he was so woozy, but delighted to see her and marched over and sat down while she licked his head and ears. Then he pounced on her! She is unbelievable patient with him, but her “warnings” are interpreted as “game on!” so I intervene when necessary. We think he is doing really well going potty outside — we take him out every couple of hours and definately after he wakes from a nap. This morning the sprinklers were going off and that was hilarious! He started jumping around got rather wet and very distracted so we did have a couple of accidents in the house shortly thereafter, but to be expected. He sleeps great during the day, but at night he is up every 1-2 hours and 4am seems to be the time he wants to stay up (against all my persuasions that he could use more sleep). We kept him up as late as we could last night, but any tips you have, we will take! We just love our baby! He is going to the vet for his first little once-over this afternoon. We bought some more of the Royal Canin puppy food and have been putting a few pieces of the Life’s abundance in…they take him a little longer to chew, but he is eating them right up! Hope you get some rest today! Stacy TX
Debi, Good morning! Here is an updated photo of Luka (aka Dunkin, from Leila X Simba) and his mommy! This little fluffy baby is the light of my life. He is adored and showered with attention by my siblings and parents when they come to visit. Have a fantastic day! Azuree FL
Hi Debi! Bellini is just a wonderful addition to our family. He loves his crate, toys and us of course! He is very smart and his personality so unique! We enjoy watching him learn his new surroundings and so amazed by his energy, being so tiny! Thank you so much for our precious gift! I will send you pictures as he grows! Lilly & Mike
Cole is doing great. He’s already so spoiled since he’s with someone 24/7. You’ll be glad to know that he’s also bilingual! My in-laws are with him during the day and speak only Bulgarian to him, and we’re with him in the evenings and night time and we speak only English to him. He’s so smart! He has two speeds….FAST and more FAST…..lol. We’ve been calling him “Mickey”. He seems to like it. He’s just the sweetest little thing. He’s got the personality of Mighty Mouse and he’s cute like Mickey Mouse so thus the name. He has his first Vet appt tomorrow and I have no doubt he’ll charm them all. I will send you some more pics soon. We’re going to VA in sept to see the rest of the family and since my niece is a photographer I’ll get her to take some nice pics of him. I will definitely keep in touch and give you updates, Thanks again for breeding such a great little puppy.
Debi, Just a quick note to let you know that Cole is at his new home in FL and settling in well. He’s playing with his new toys right now. He’s so precious. I’ve enclosed a couple of pics. They’re not very good but at least you can see him play. I’ll touch base with you later in the week. Thanks for giving me such a beautiful (and vocal…lol) boy! Tammy FL
Hi Debi, Louis is now 5 months old and he is SO precious. He is now a full-fledged member of the family, always smiling, running and playing, and spending tons of time walking on his hind legs. We got an awesome trainer, so Louis is housebroken now (no accidents for a week — knock on wood), and he can sit, stay, and lay down on command. He also gives us kisses when we ask for them :). He really is such a smart dog, and has all sorts of tricks that he shows off, particularly in front of company. He has a lovely personality, and he brings so much joy into our lives. We’ve told everyone about you since people ask where we got Louis non-stop. He is seriously the most beautiful dog, and everyone wants one of their own! I know that, once I have a home of my own and some disposable income, I’m getting Louis a little friend. Thank you for Louis. He is such a gift. Melissa CA
Hi, Debi and Phil: Just wanted to give you an update on our li’l girl. We took her to the vet last Wednesday, and she agreed with your vet’s assessment: Petisa (MiMi) is a strong, healthy doggie with no detectable problems at this stage. Let’s hope that lasts for a long, healthy life! She’ll get her third shots at the end of the month, then the rabies vaccine about a week after that. We suppose that, sometime toward the end of September, when she’s nearly 6 months old, we’ll have her spayed at another vet’s office where they perform laser surgery to minimize the trauma. We’ll probably have them put an ID chip in her at the same time. Now that ‘Tisa is settling in to her new domain, and has lost some of her shyness, she is certainly asserting a strong will –and a mind of her own. Chewing everything in sight, stubbornly repeating behaviors for which we have told her “no,” playing a little too roughly with those tiny, sharp teeth. She and I are in a kind of tug-of-war about who is the Alpha around here. Did she rule the roost with her brothers? It seems like it, because her confidence is rock solid. I’ve noticed, for example, that when there is a loud sound, she doesn’t freak out and run away, but instead jumps and then goes to explore what it was. Curious, inquisitive, brave little busy body! Of course, when ‘Tisa does settle down, she craves love and affection. She can be such a sweetheart, as cute as they come with her expressions. She’ll cock her head from side-to-side, learning key words when I’m talking to her. She likes to stay close when on the bed, probably because she is used to having her brothers in the “nest” with her. She often dreams, her eyelids flickering, her nose sniffing, feet twitching, legs running, and sometimes even “talking” in her sleep. We have decided that her “official” AKC name will be “Petisa Wag-a-Muffin.” Hope everything is well with all your tiny, furry toddlers! Mark UT
I just wanted to show you how beautiful a girl Osa has grown up to be! Truffle is her partner in crime–she is just tall enough to get things off of the counter, then Osa grabs them from her and runs. I am forever chasing her and trying to get things out of her mouth. Honestly, it is like having 2 two-year-olds all of the time! They do keep me laughing and are adorable. Osa is the dominant personality and takes everything away from Truffle, and although Lagottos are the foundation breed for all water retrievers, Osa is the retriever in our family! She will retrieve a ball or toy as many times as we will throw it for her and is always bringing toys for us to throw. She is so, so smart and can sit, stay, go down, come, and knows what “leave it” and “drop it” mean, although she doesn’t want to do those things! She gets into her kennel when we tell her to and into her travel carrier when we go in the car. True to her name, she makes a bear snarl when she plays or we pick her up, but it’s all show. Hope you enjoy seeing the most recent pictures of Osa and Truffle. They are napping now, so I’d better take advantage of the time. Hope to hear from you and thank you for our Osa Belle! Blessings,
Just wanted to send you a recent picture of Louis for your website! He is a darling. I couldn’t be happier!
Debi, My baby (Champ) is the most beautiful baby in the world and everyone at the Vet’s office knows that also! The Vet absolutely loves him and all of the staff does as well. He went in for his first grooming appointment (puppy groom) and they all loved him there as well. We start puppy training soon! I am looking forward to getting him a brother in a year or so and I hope you will have another gorgeous boy for him then. Meredith TX
Hi Debi, I wanted to let you know that Junior made it home safely. He was an absolute angel in the airport and during the flight – he didn’t make a peep! He is everything that you said he was (and more). Thanks, Vanessa TX
Debi, Thank you so much for letting me know about the pool for the back yard. I got a 5 dollar one ring kiddie pool and put it on the back patio and Stella (Lena) and Tuey love it. In the afternoons when we are sitting on the patio they take turns in the pool. Good idea. Rocky, my first pom will not get near it no matter how hot he gets. We put him in it and he jumps out immediately. He thinks it is too close to a bath. Really good idea. Glad you told me. It makes me feel better that they will stay a little cooler while I am at work. Stella (Lena) is still doing great. Runs around more and more each day. Acting like she knows the place now. She actually barked 3 times today. Tuey stays away from her most of the time but Rocky likes to play with her. I’m sure Tuey will change as time wears on. He thinks she is just getting a little too playful. We love her. She is really sweet and lovable. And I love the fact that she sleeps all night. Best puppy I’ve had so far. Karen TX
Debi, Snooki has been a joy for us, especially my daughter. The first two nights she cried nonstop while in her crate. Last night she did great in her crate! She’s a playful little thing. Likes to bite though. We will have to stop that. She will be a great thing for Abbie. Gives her a little responsibility! Thanks so much for her. I will keep you posted. Mindy TX
Here are a few pics of Benz. He’s doing just great and growing up to be our little guard dog in our house. He is a hit down here in the valley. The vet and the groomers just love him and always ask where we got him and of course I tell them about you! Just want to tell you thank you for him and hope you are doing well with your new editions. Hope you enjoy the pics and when I get some more I will pass them along so you can see him as he grows! Thanks Again Debi 🙂 Ashley TX
Hi Debi! Sheldon (Now Rocco) asked me to send you a picture of him! We are so in love with him and as you can see, I think he has adjusted quite well….. thank you so much. Meredith TX
Hey Debi! Everything is going GREAT! We are keeping Inky’s name, as the whole family and extended family have become so attached to it! When we got him on Saturday he was surprisingly calm and collected. He immediately seemed to bond with Patrick and I, and was running circles around our living room all afternoon playing with his new toys. On Sunday we had my brother and sister-in-law over and they cooed over Inky all afternoon. They were surprised by how personable he is! Yesterday we skyped with my mom, and my aunt, and they were so excited to see him. My mother and father-in-law came to visit their “new grandbaby” and couldn’t stop loving on him. He is going to be a very spoiled boy! He is very used to being in his crate which is good, but we only keep him in it at night and if we have to leave during the day to run errands. A few times he has put himself into his crate to fall asleep, which is adorable. As far as potty training goes, I think he’s doing surprisingly well. He seems to have gotten the whole “go potty” thing outside, and now when we walk him to his spot he almost immediately does his business. Overall, he seems SO smart and picks up on things very quickly. I am convinced he already knows “bring it” and “come” after just three days of using those commands with him, which is amazing! Today we went to his puppy wellness check and the vet said he looks perfect. She checked his knees, stool, etc. We also got him his first round of vaccines. The vet kept commenting on how sweet he was and what a good personality he has, which I definitely agree! In two weeks we will be taking him to the beach with us, and then shortly thereafter we’ll be moving back to Memphis to live with my mom. I’m very excited to see her two dogs (Lucius and Cyrus) welcome their new brother Inky. Lucius, if you recall, is also a DeeDee’s pom! I have been trying to get some good pictures, but none are really too great so far. I’ve attached a few of the good ones to this email, and will send more when I get some better quality ones. Thanks again for breeding such wonderful dogs, and for taking such good care of them. Inky has really brought a light back into our lives. Natalie
You must be BUSY with your many jobs and responsibilities.But just in case Anice Grizzly floats through your mind, here is a mental picture so you can imagine some of her life. She snoops, snoops, snoops around the house. For example, under a hallway table I have a tiny (for show only) old fashioned curvy footstool. I think she thinks if she hides there she can watch us and no one can see her. She loves getting in small tight areas and watching the world. She likes stimulation. She is the LIVELIEST pom we have ever had. Oh, I may have forgot to tell you, Anice Grizzly goes to the bathroom like lady. She gets on her little pee pee pad and has her miniature little puddle and then excuses herself and moves away. She is so cute. It’s funny how often she assumes a real grizzly pose and stands up on her tiny hind feet and takes swaps in the air at our feet or anything else such as the legs of tables. She runs around the house until she collapses from being tired. If there is anyone available to cuddle with, such as Daddy on the floor, Mommy on the floor, or Dusty in one of his many beds around the house, she will snuggle up to the them and pass out quickly. The vet said her health was great and planned out the future visits for future shots. Gary overheard the workers squealing as someone carried her back into the bowels of the building. I would have been so disappointed if no one noticed how BEAUTIFUL she is! Someday I want people to notice how kind she is, but right now, she is still forming her personality. Her interests are food, water, play and that’s just about it. Oh, and grooming Daddy’s bald head and his moustache. And laying on Daddy’s neck so he can have a new mink stole collar when he is laying down! I don’t know how I knew that you were growing and nurturing the cream of the crop. I just got that feeling from your website. You had the best. You worked for the best, the cleanest, the healthiest, the best features, the happiest, the most humane conditions, you noticed the personal traits of each dog, so I thought this is NOT a puppy mill, this is something special. When I first saw Grizzly Ann, I thought to myself, “I was right! Only MORE so. Her coat was much much THICKER, and softer than I could have ever imagined. Gary just keeps smelling her. Must be the shampoo. I still can’t believe she arrived perfectly clean. She’s such a little lady about her private business. Everything else, she is NOT a lady about. She is very outspoken and very physically curious. So we are really telling each other, “We better watch everything, electric cords, things that can be climbed, everything. Thank you for our baby. I just wanted to update you on what her day is like. Mommy gets home after work and she has one more person to play with, although I am a very cheap substitute for the God she calls Daddy. Love, Mel
Hi Debi, Here are a couple of pics taken over the weekend. He is doing well and we are enjoying him so much. Housetraining to the Pee Pads is coming along and he and Corduroy wrestle non-stop. Take Care, Ann
Debi, Here is a picture of Benz (Bellamy) I just took right now while we were playing outside 🙂 he is doing great and is growing up so fast! Been keeping up with all his vet visits and he’s doing great! Just thought I’d share with you how happy and grateful we are that we have him! I’ll be sending some more pics soon. Ashley
Dear Debi, This is Megan and I had gotten Sputnik (formerly Golden) from you about a month ago. I’ve attached some pictures of him at 8 weeks, about 10 weeks (in the snow pictures), and 12 weeks. He has been growing into such a beautiful fun dog! He is truly a joy though. He has beautiful form, has a gait just as a pom should, loves to train and play, and really has brought a lot of happiness to my life. I can’t thank you enough for breeding such a great dog. I’ll be sure to send you more pictures as he grows, I can see puppy uglies creeping up on him though, so the pictures might not be so fluffy! Thank you so much again and hope you are having a good weekend. All the best, Megan TX
Dear Debi, I wish to express my gratitude for selecting me to be Luka’s (formerly named ‘Dunkin’) mommy. He is such a precious, sweet, loving and playful little boy. Luka is a blessing and he has added so much joy and laughter to my life and I look forward to watching him grow and mature. I am amazed by his gentle and quiet temperament and I attribute this to your selective breeding. He is my precious and beloved baby! I will send you periodic updates on Luka. Sincerely, Azuree Nystrom FL
Hi Debi, Sorry it took me so long to get in touch but things have been super hectic with college. Buttercup, formerly known as Chloe, is doing just great! She’s a little ball of energy and just like her father Taz, she’s always happy. Her coat is getting fluffy, and I’m hoping as she gets older it will be just as big and fluffy as Taz’s. Buttercup enjoys stealing people’s socks and underwear from the drawers and bringing them to her lair under my bed. She’s a happy little puppy, and weighs around 5 pounds now at 8 months. She loves playing with her toys, especially her pink panther. She pretends to be a “big dog” and likes to growl when she plays which is hilarious because she’s the biggest chicken at times. Buttercup is definately a joy to have and of course is a great companion. She always follows me everywhere around the house and gets so excited whenever I come home. She’s very good at standing on her hind legs and hoping around. Its quite a sight! And she knows how to fetch. I love walking around with Buttercup because she always gets so much attention everywhere we go. She’s a little diva on her harness and she knows it. I love how alert she is in the house because she always lets me know when somebody is coming in or too close to the house. However, she isn’t a “yappy” dog at all. She’s quiet for the most part. She’s definitely a people-dog and is super friendly and inquisitive! So thank you, Debi, for providing me with such a wonderful addition to my family! You were so helpful through the whole process and were always patient with my numerous emails and questions. Buttercup is my baby and I love her to pieces. I have attached some pictures so you can see how she’s grown! Thank you! Briana NY
Hey Debi, Everything is going very well! We are still debating the name, but Sputnik seems to be winning out as he gets more playful by the day! He has taken to crate training well and is eating, drinking, and going to the bathroom just fine…. I love him to death and he is so sweet and fun, he really is perfect! Thank you so much again for him, I’ll keep you updated as he grows! All the best, Megan p.s. I’ve attached some pictures of him for you to enjoy! He certainly does love toys, so thanks for the heads up on that also
Debi, Just wanted to let you know we all got home safely including little Benz!!! I am thrilled to have him home finally! He was a good little boy and we had no problems with him on the trip back home. I again just want to thank you for everything and its been a joy to work with you and your husband Phil. I will keep you posted on how he is doing and with the vet check up as well. We will of course send pictures as well!!! Thank YOU Ashley
Hi Debi! Just sending you a new picture of Jazz (formerly Jewel). This was taken at Halloween. All the kids that came to the door LOVED her, because she would greet them with her tiny little self with such confidence! One kid declared she looked like a squirrel â€“ she didn’t give him any candy Don’t let this picture trick you she looks big here but she doesn’t weigh four pounds if that! I need to weigh her. I gave her a bath this weekend and she is just tiny, tiny! She doesn’t even look like a real dog, which she doesn’t believe she is anyway! When I can catch her still, I will take a picture of her whole body so you can see how truly tiny and beautiful she is! She is my baby and I love her with all my heart. Thank you for breeding beautiful, smart, loving Poms! Sincerely, Karen
Hi Debi. Just a couple of pictures to let you know how Cooper (aka Bolt) is doing. He is turning into a beautiful adult dog, though I miss the fuzzy pup, and is one happy little man…well except for having to wear his birthday hat and having his foot bandaged from having a wart cut out (risks of the dog park I guess). Another picture of him at Cooper Lake (which he is named after), one on a backpacking trip up by Leavenworth and the other meeting a metal dog friend in La Conner. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Cheers, Deidre & Cooper
She (Dawn) is so sweet, loves to be held, and will be spoiled more than you did. She does have a big girl attitude! She is so sweet and spunky. My wife said its the best thing (Christmas present) I could have given her. Ben LA
I just would love to recommend Dee Dee’s Pomeranians. They have the most beautiful dogs, with great temperaments. I think the fact that these puppies are raised with people who love and care about them is most important. Debi makes sure they all have wonderful homes and their future and safety is always most important. My little girl is absolutely beautiful, her conformation and temperament outstanding. I’m now in the process of getting another puppy from Dee Dees Pomeranians. I would not go anywhere else. Regards, Maureen MA
The process (of purchasing our new puppy) with Dee Dees Pomeranians has been one of the most pleasant transactions I have encountered as a lawyer. Debi is a delightful, warm lady with a passion to produce these wonderful little creatures that brighten our lives. My hope is that those that adopt these beautiful loyal animals have the same passion to care and love them as Debi has in her life. Merry Chistmas! Debra TX
Sweetie is doing great, she slept in her new bed last night right next to me and didn’t make a peep. I had to keep checking on her to make sure she was alright and was greeted with kisses. I love her, she is the best and so are you. I will continue to send you updated pics of our girl. Thank you so much. I will wait for all her puppy shots to be completed, and then she will take over my office….. I cannot tell you how amazing she is (I know you know). My secretary and friends came over today. I think we almost broke our teeth crushing them together. I will keep you updated. I love her! Maureen MA
Debi: I can’t tell you how much we enjoy our little Muni. He has been such a welcome addition and keeps us on our toes at all times. Never a dull moment. Ed has even said once we get him potty trained, we probably should get him a little buddy. So we might want another blue merle in the near future. I had a pom for 16 years and he was the best company and the smartest little dog you could ever want, thus the reason we went for another one this time around. Muni is so smart, so capable and we can’t thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of his life. Trust me, he is being treated as a little prince. Thank you again. Judi
Hey Debi, I thought I would show you some pictures of my puppy. We decided to name her Mairead, it is an Irish name that was my great-grandmother’s, it is pronounced May-read. She has started losing her puppy coat right now and is a little scraggly looking, but I’m sure she will be beautiful again soon. She is an absolute angel and she loves to play and be held. She is so smart and is able to figure out how to do things that took my other dogs a lot longer to figure out. It took my other poms days to figure out the stairs in my house, and she just ran right up them, and when she wanted to be able to get on the bed, she figured out that if she jumps up on a stool first then she can make it onto the bed. She is also really playful and loves to play tug, and she is so strong she almost always wins. We really love her. I will keep you updated with pictures as she grows older. Mandy TX
Hi Debi, Have been so busy this summer, but wanted you to get an update on Lucius. What a cute little guy. He went for his first grooming yesterday and he was so good. He is a very active guy, so this picture is one of the only ones that doesn’t have him streaking through the shot! He runs the house, loves to go outside and chase balls with Cyrus, and hasn’t found anything that isn’t fun to chew on! He has been banned from the living room for sticking his head in the fireplace and chewing on lava rock. Besides the fact it can’t be good for him, his little razor teeth don’t need sharpening! Gabby and Lucius start puppy training class in 2 weeks, so will let you know how that goes.Can’t thank you enough for our wonderful little guy. Sally
Hey Debi! Just wanted to let you know Honey (well I call her Teddy now) is doing really well. She’s getting used to her home and has been jumping around playing happily all the time. The crate training is going pretty well and she whines less and less everyday. She’s one furry ball of joy and I love having her. Thank you for breeding such wonderful dogs! And I hope all went well w/ the birth of your grandchild! Congratulations. I’ll stay in touch in case you’d like a picture of Teddy when she’s all grown up!
Debi, She is awesome……she is doing great on potty training (pee & poop), and she is settling in easily. She is getting loved on SO much and she seems to love it as much as we do. I have been amazed that both nights since we have had her, she has slept in her kennel (1st night laundry room, 2nd night Mitch’s room) all night! And in the morning she is bright eyed & bushy tailed waiting patiently, but doesn’t even bark. I feel like we have been truly blessed with her sweet temperament. We love her so much. Thank you so much for being an awesome breeder. I will send pics soon. We are taking a ton but my camera connection to download to my computer is at my daughters office. Should be coming home today. Thanks! Shelli July 2010 Hi Debi, Here are a few pics of our new baby (I was finally able to download). I will try to attach some video of her romping in the backyard but I’m not very good at this. She is SO smart, SO loving and SO beautiful (I could go on and on…….) She is awesome and we LOVE her so much………THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. Much Love & Puppy Kisses, Shelli, Mitch & Reni P.S. My husband’s first comment when he caught sight of Reni was, “She matches your couch!” (Actually, it’s a loveseat …..and I didn’t realize until she came home……but she does!) Â She fits into our life perfectly in EVERY way!!!
Hi Debi, I thought I should update you with some photos. He is very cute, funny and active. Very smart, and already knew how to manipulate us to no end, haha. Totally spoiled. I am wondering whether you would still have some pictures of his younger days, I would appreciate if you could send them to me so that I can build up an album for him. Thank you very much. Vincenta Canada
Hi Debi, Osa is doing great. She has all her shots now, so she can go to the park. We love her. She is so smart and healthy. Such a beautiful little girl. Have a great day and thanks again for the gorgeous pup. Gaby
Dear Debi, Here is one of the pictures of Clementine. She has grown up to be everything you told me she would be and more. She is adorable. So sweet and very very affectionate. She is always super happy. Very playful, very loving and social. She is amazing. She does all different kinds of tricks. She knows how to sit, how to lay down, jump, walk on her back legs, she shakes both left and right paws upon request, she jumps high into the air and does saltoes at a sight of a doggy treat. She is simply amazing. And so beautiful. I just wanted to thank you for giving me such a good friend. I love her so much 🙂 This picture I took for my photography project. Now her coat is even bigger and fluffier.. She looks beautiful. I will send you a photo as soon as I get a chance. Best, Milana
Debi- Ok, so I knew I was going to fall in love, but you should have warned me that he was going to steal my heart completely! Oh also you should have warned me that NOTHING was going to get done for a while since it is so hard to break myself away from him. (My mother feels the same way…neither of us have done ANYTHING since he got here!). My older dog (Cub) feels a little bit differently, but she is coming around. One of Louis’ (pronounced Louie), favorite past times is attacking and chewing on Cub’s paws…the little bugger! She is learning to discipline him though, which is wonderful. He needs to be put in his place being the alfa he is. His other favorite past time is playing fetch with the smallest tennis ball you have ever seen…we are talking a whole new level of cute I can not even describe! Oh and most importantly he seems very happy. He acts as if the house and everything in it is his. He is very comfortable in his new house and has completely bonded with me. He is happy to meet everyone that he comes in contact with. Over all he is a very happy, and confident little man! I took him to the vet yesterday and he had a clean bill of health. Thank you so much Debi! He has brought so much joy and fun into my house and life. Already I can not imagine life with out him! Caitlin
Debi, Hard to believe Prince is already a year old! Above and beyond mere beauty, he also has a distinct, warm, and busy personality, with a whole host of delightful habits– as you can see from one of the attached photos, he likes to cover his food, a quirk that developed overnight. And, of course, nothing better to cover it with than a used sock when he can find one! Thank you for our happy fluffball! The care you take with your litters is obvious. Prince has developed from a sweet puppy into a healthy, sharp, and very affectionate young dog. Best, Amanda and Prince
Hi Debi, Hope the new year is going well for you. Sydney has made it really fun for us so far. We started puppy kindergarten last week. All the other puppies in class were huge puppies but she held her own. She can now sit, lie down and stand on command and go up & down stairs. Below is a current pic of Sydney with a few of her toys. Of course it’s John who’s spoiling her. I’d never do such a thing 😉 Best, Pam
Hi Debi, I’ve been meaning to email you but just haven’t stopped long enough to do it. Little Miss Holly (aka, Ella) is doing wonderful. She is getting alone great and fits right in. She feels right at home as if she has been here since birth. Holly has really stolen out hearts. She is such a ray of sunshine. My husband is crazy about her, as much as I am. We just love her to no end. Keep in touch. Susan
Hi Debi — Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how Belle (formerly known as Bubbles) is doing. She is the best dog in the world! Tim and I are absolutely smitten with her! She is very sweet tempered and laid back. We have visited Tim’s niece and nephew (13 and 8) and my niece and nephew (both 10) with Belle, and she is amazingly gentle and patient with them. And she is incredibly smart — we have had a trainer come out to the house to help us get started on training, and he said she is exceptionally bright. It took her about 30 seconds to learn her sits and downs. And she’s beautiful. She is still mostly cream, but she has some beautiful butterscotch on her face and back. She also has developed a huge smile. She typically stops traffic on our walks and has become quite the popular puppy in the neighborhood. Her health is very good, and she is at least 4.5 pounds now, maybe more. We have only had her for a few months, but we can’t imagine life without her. She is truly wonderful. Thanks, Anne
Hey Debi, First to tell you the important stuff – when we picked her up, she was calmly sitting in her crate looking around. It was as if she traveled across country everyday. She hadn’t messed in her crate so she was clean and even smelled good. She was a bit timid when she first ventured outside the crate but that didn’t last long. We played with her alot last night and this morning. We love how she pounces and prances. She watches everything and is very alert to new noises. She explored our house this morning and doesn’t seem to be afraid of anything. I am positive that she is a puppy prodigy 😉 You all did a wonderful job with her socialization. We have a hard act to follow. We are thrilled with her. Thank you so much for sending her to us. We’re naming her Sydney Shaw. In one 24 hour period she traveled from Austin to Houston to Portland to McMinnville, left her first family and met her second family, stayed overnight in a motel and went potty outside in the snow. And, she did it all with no problem. Like I said above – she is a puppy prodigy! Well, she just woke up from a nap so I think it’s playtime again. I’ll send you some pics in the next few days. Thanks again for everything. It was a great experience! Best, Pam
Just a quick note that Cooper is doing great. He is an amazingly sweet dog and everyone is crazy about him. He got to see his first snow and had a great time. Little guy just loves the out of doors. Deidre
Debi, Prince has really matured over the past month or so. He’s developed some very nice manners– he’s willing to just hang out for hours at a time, especially if there’s an open window for him to haunt. Most amazing of all, he lets us know when the time for outside business is nigh. 🙂 He loves his walks, and we go on long ones every day. He can be a boneless lil bunny, too, rolling over on his back with legs splayed in all sorts of strange directions, asking for a belly rub, right now please. Such a lovebug, totally living up to his name. It’s impossible to refuse those big brown eyes anything. I hope you enjoy the latest batch of pics! It’s not hard to get awesome shots of Prince Charming. He’s pretty much gorgeous from every angle. 🙂 Just recently we had someone stop traffic in order to lean out her window and inquire about him. The holidays are upon us! I hope you and yours have a blessed season. In the meantime, Prince and I are headed back out into this fantastic weather; gotta enjoy it while it lasts! Best, Amanda & Prince C!
Hi Debi, I sure enjoyed meeting you & your husband Phil. Mellie was so happy all the way home…she didn’t get car sick or wet the blanket. She ate & drank twice. She’s chewing on a dog biscuit right now. I’ve already taken her outside a few times & she’s gone to the bathroom every single time. Amazing! I had been looking on the internet for just the right puppy, & as soon as I saw Mellie’s face, I knew she was the one. We will take good care of her….I’ll send you photos as she gets older. Thank you! Cindy
Dear Debi, It was such a pleasure meeting you and your husband. Thank you SO much for my little Clementine. She’s absolutely adorable! I care for her very much and spoil her as much as possible without spoiling her character. ha-ha. She’s an absolute pleasure to have! She runs so fast and plays so much, its just inevitable that anyone around her smiles all the time. I’ll be sending you the pictures of her as soon as I get my laptop. You’ll love them! Thank you again, really. I am so happy, and wish you, your family and fluffy paws all the very best from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Milana
Debi, I hope this finds you well! Prince Charming continues to sweep everyone he meets off their feet! His charm, fluff, and “bedroom eyes” (according to our vet’s receptionist) pull all things organic under his spell. 🙂 Our walks near two miles, so we come into contact with a wide variety of pedestrians… and not one has been able to contain an exclamation about his cuteness. He’s such a people dog, he basks in the attention. He has yet to meet a person he doesn’t like! He also has yet to meet a sandal he doesn’t like, although he has expressed a particular interest in my brother’s gigantic man-sandals. It seems to me that some sort of gravitational rule is being defied when I catch Prince carrying his prey off to his lair, something he is often able to accomplish because my brother rarely remembers to put those shoes away. It’s hard to say which weighs more, the shoe or the dog, leading me to the conclusion that if Prince were a human, then he would have the strength of a superhero. Prince came through neutering surgery with flying colors a couple weeks ago. He’s maturing into a gorgeous two-tone gem, and is currently just a little over 5 pounds. I’ve attached some of my favorite recent pics. 🙂 Never a dull moment when his bright eyes are open! He sends much love and many doggie kisses! Best, Amanda
Debi, Hope this finds you well! Prince is doing beautifully. He has responded to crate training with 99% success. You were so right about the power of consistency! The crate no longer bothers him as long as he has somebody in view. He is also walking well on his leash. Walks get a little longer every couple of days as he becomes more confident. He’s dexterous about picking up leaves as we go. It’s rare that we return to the house without him proudly bearing some sort of plant-prey! In the past few days, he has also had two daring battles with house spiders, and a very serious conversation with a frog. His antics are the best part of my day. Prince’s weight jumped from 3.1 pounds to 4.3 between vet visits and he may be closer to 5 by now. He’s losing fluff swiftly these days, so his legs looks very long and slender. When he’s laying down, he looks like a gorgeous little sphinx. 🙂 His coat still feels luxurious! He has been such a wonderful addition to our family. Prince says “hello” to both you and the crew! Best, Amanda
Hi Debi, I bought Napoleone (Bentley) from you back in October. I wanted to let you know that he is healthy and happy out here in California. He was recently selected to be featured in an upcoming book about dogs. His photo shoot was yesterday and the photographer said he was one of the best behaved dogs. I have attached a couple of pictures for your enjoyment. Amber CA
Debi, I just had to write to tell you thank you, thank you, thank you. Blitzen is the cutest little doll. I was very skeptical to purchase an animal from the internet. To my surprise the transition went so smooth. The poor little guy flew approx 9 hours with a lay over!!!! I remember you saying to me he may be a little timid at first. I had no idea what to expect. When Blitzen arrived John and I went through the door to cargo and we could hear him barking. We looked at him in the crate and he was so tiny. We took him out to the car and opened the crate and he flew out jumping all over and kissing John and I. We just looked in amazement that this tiny little fluff ball was so energetic and loving. Well it has been 4 months and he is still the same, a cute, loving ball of energy that absolutely loves people and I truly believe it was due to the environment in which he was born. He is getting so big. We had his 3rd vet appointment in the beginning of April and he weighed 4lbs.5oz. Thank you again Debi, we love him soooooooo much. I want another one!!!!!!!!! Natalie
Hi Debi, I just wanted to give you a update on Coach (Dodge) and share a new picture of him. Coach is great dog. He loves everyone and is full of energy. Everyone in the neighborhood knows Coach. He loves to play outside in the grass with my grandchildren and the other kids on the block. He has been known to get into a little mischief. His favorite thing to do is walk in the park and he wants to say hello to everyone that passes. Coach has even learned to clean up his toys! Coach has become the center of our lives and he is a beautiful and smart Pomeranian. Thank you, Florence and Coach
Debi, I took some pictures of Napoleon today. Thought you might want to see what a beautiful boy he has become. I absolutely love him to pieces!!! Napoleone’s new favorite thing is going to the beach and playing with the other dogs. Here are some cute pictures out in the yard. Amber
Hi Debi, Well… Bear arrived in great condition, and was such a good boy! He never cried or barked, and even nibbled some food as we opened the crate to let him out. What a love bug!!!! He snuggled up to me right away. Once we got to my place, he made himself right at home… and his personality blossomed. He is the cutest, sweetest and most entertaining puppy I have ever seen! I love him to pieces, and he bonded with me immediately. I’m the “Mama Bear” now. : ) He’s learning to go to the bathroom outside. Everyone who sees us just HAS to come over and meet Bear. He’s the most popular boy at the complex! : ) Thanks so much!!!!! Bear and I are very, very happy! Lynn CA
Hi Debi! How are you? Bella and I wanted to write you and tell you thank you. She is sitting on my lap right now watching me write you this email. If only her little mind could comprehend what I was doing, she would probably tell me to tell you she is great and she loves her new home. She thinks she runs the place. She is growing up beautifully and is a little terror indeed. The naughty things she does just makes me laugh. I hope all is well and here are a few pictures of her. Thank you so much, Bella and Sasha
Dear Mom (Leila) and Dad (Patches), I am happy to say that I am officially 1 year old now and I have learned so many things since my new family adopted me!! I learned to walk on the leash, to sit, lay down, bye-bye (that’s a car ride 😉 and night-night (that’s bedtime and I think that one sort of stinks but my mom says I have to go night-night every night bec my beauty sleep…I think she just loves me and likes me to cuddle next to her and keep her warm along with Browneigh!! Browneigh and I got lots and lots of toys for Christmas and I got a cake for my birthday that we all shared…our cake had blue icing and my nose was stained all day!!!! I love my forever family, they are so good to me!! Mom loves on me everyday…she kisses me everymorning and I kiss her right back. OH and did I mention I helped mom paint??!!! Yes, we are painting the house and I put my nose and paw right in it and she said “well good thing it’s latex and washed it right off of me”…after I got paw prints on the floor, they just laughed at me and said remember when Browneigh did that at the old house?”…and then they laughed louder! Well, I’ve got lots of stuff to still get into, and then I have to get ready for my walk with mom and Browneigh, so I have to go for now BUT I’ve attached a couple pictures for you… I’ll write again soon… Britgezz (aka Auralee)
Hi Debi, Just a quick note to let you know how much I love Wally (Teo), it has been a long time since I have had a tiny puppy and I forgot how much fun they are. Wally is so cute and so funny. He is not afraid of one thing, it is quite obvious that he was well socialized during his formative 7 weeks. I am absolutely in love – please feel free to use me as a reference any time. Thank you so much and I am so happy it worked out for you with that horrid fire. Dawn
Thought I’d just drop you a note about Austin. We love him! He fits right in with the other dogs and he discovered our toy basket right off. He likes to climb in and just sit on the top of all the stuffed toys and choose one to chew on. He also likes to chew on the buttons on my husband’s shirt! He loves to go outside with the other dogs but we still go out with him until he is comfortable and knows this is home even if it is fenced. I also take him in the front yard by himself and he likes that too. He tries to chase the cat in the front yard. He loves Cassie as you can tell from the photos. Cassie is not totally sure about him yet but she tolerates him at present. Thanks for meeting us in Bryan and we are very happy with Austin. Deborah
Hi Debi, Brian and I wanted to give you an update on Dash. He was actually just neutered last Thursday and he’s doing really well. He’s not a huge fan of the little cone he has to wear, but he’s such a licker, it’s for his own good. The cone comes off Christmas morning. Just in time for a full day of visiting. Brian and I absolutely adore him and are constantly surprised and entertained by his little personality. Our neighbors absolutely love him, and actually come outside when they see us out there with him (even this past week when the temperatures were in the teens!). He absolutely loves the snow. Doesn’t show any sign of minding the cold weather, likes to jump in the powdery snow, and when it blows, he loves to chase it and then eat it! Brian and I both invested in some long underwear to wear under our clothes, b/c he likes being outside so much. This way, Mommy and Daddy can have fun too, without freezing! We are constantly checking your website for updates, congratulations on your most recent litter. Snickers was a real cutie!! Brian keeps mentioning that he wants another one. 🙂 We’ll see. 🙂 We are in desperate need of a new camera, so apologies for the way this photo looks, but we are starting to see more of Gwen in Dash as the weeks progress. His coat is getting darker and their faces are so similar. Love his little muzzle. I promise to send more photos once we get a better camera….hopefully Santa got my list. 😉 Thank you again for delivering this little bundle of fur into our lives. It’s our first Christmas in our brand new home together and we’re so excited to share it with Dash. Wishing you and your family a safe and Merry Christmas. Sincerely, Holly
Debi, How are you doing? I just wanted to let you know how Baylee is doing!! She and Spanky are awesome! They play so much. They love on each other and sleep together. So cute!!! Baylee can be a little punk sometimes, but that is what comes with little puppies, right! One of her favorite things is to get up on the bed while I’m sleeping and lay right on top of my chest and cuddle up! She is a little cuddler! Merry Christmas! Diamond
Hi Debi, I must tell you that Brice is the most precious, adorable, cutest, sweetest, playful, brightest, darling, fluffiest, little puppy in the world. He makes even the biggest people fall hard for him. We are having the best time with him. He is doing well with outdoor potty training. Indoors, pretty good. I think my family is still in training. He is hitting the mark 8 out of a 10. We will get there. I forgot to mention lovable. Oh and the sharp puppy teeth. “Ow” But who could get mad at that face. I must mention again how playful he is. Loves his toys and the blowing fall leaves outside! Also, it is so cute when he makes the little snorting sounds when he is playing. Sharon
Hi Debi, Periwinkle is so wonderful, words don’t describe him. How lucky you are to have his kind in many numbers. He is beautiful beyond measure. We keep asking ourselves when is he going to go through the Puppy Uglies? My middle daughter read your wonderfully organized book you sent us on Peri and she swears he already went through them…Maybe we think he is beautiful, too, because his personality is. He is happy and curious, and so nice! He bites everything, but when it is fingers, we say “No, lick” and he tries to turn his bite into a lick that soon turns into a combo-lick-bite…but still very gentle considering his teeth are so sharp. We love everything about him and I will send pictures soon. Thanks so much for him, Debbie
Hi Debi!! Here are a couple pictures of Baylee and Spanky. They are a very playful couple, Spanky has finally warmed up to her and they are a joy to be around. Baylee is a smart little girl and has figured out how to climb out of her play pen, it is pretty cute to watch. So now she gets to wander around all day with Spanky. She is a very fast learner, she knows how to use her potty pads, she sleeps right in between our pillows at night. I am very pleased with her. She is a wonderful addition to my life and I am grateful that I found her. I would like to thank you for letting her become a part of my little family. Many Thanks, Diamond
Hi Debi, I just wanted to drop you a line and give you an update on Dash. What a cutie! He truly is the apple of our eyes. He has wiggled his way into our hearts and has totally changed the dynamics of our home. Brian and I have been enjoying every minute with him. What a great breed! You are so right about the millions of kisses. Whenever he starts giving us kisses we yell “Puppy Dog Kisses” and he gets so excited he starts giving us more kisses. 🙂 Also, he totally LOVES getting his belly rubbed. Brian has missed his train 3 out of the 4 mornings this week into work b/c he couldn’t pull himself away from rubbing his belly. He just lays there and we swear he’s smiling while we rub him. Such a delight. I just wanted to thank you for all that you’ve done for him prior to flying him to PA. We honestly can’t imagine life without him. Thanks again, Holly PS: We took Dash on a little road trip this weekend to visit his grandparents. My parents live in the country, so he loved the open fields. And Brian parents were completely impressed with him. No barking, just puppy dog kisses and so well behaved. He even made a friend with the neighbor’s one year old Yorkie-Poo, Lilly. Thanks again
Hey Debi, Thanks for checking in. Things are off to a GREAT start with Dash! He seems to have adjusted to his new living environment very well and he’s a ton of fun to have around. He’s been going to the bathroom outside for us pretty consistently and he’s done a good job at night, only waking up once to go potty. He’s eating and drinking regularly and seems really happy, with a great disposition. We introduced him to a few of our neighbors (who all immediately fell in love with him, of course) and he was very receptive to their attention, happy to be petted and fawned over. I have to say, despite reading it over and over again in the various books, I still underestimated the amount of affection these little guys have for their owners! He just loves getting petted, giving kisses, and being in the general vicinity of us. I think that’s probably what makes toy breeds so fantastic. Basically, we love Dash and are so happy to have him. He’s a little bundle of joy and has made the house such a lively place! Cheers, Brian
Hi, first let me tell you they changed my name to Coach because my new mom likes Coach pocketbooks but mainly because they told me I was going to be a surprise for her. But she found out and they were going to hand me to her in a coach shopping bag (which they did anyway). I heard mom say I was better than a coach pocketbook and I think I am too. I have lots of family here. I have a sister named Misty and another sister named Emmy who is a cat. She won’t play with me so I don’t really know her too well. There are kids who visit me too. They are my mom and dad’s grandchildren so I guess that makes me an uncle!!!!! There is also a big boy and 3 little guys that come over to play with me. There is also a little tiny baby girl who I can’t play with yet. She came home from the hospital the same day I came to New York. I sleep in mom and dad’s room with Misty and they gave me a bed but I took the pillow out and put it under the bed so I could sleep with Misty. That is where she likes to sleep and sometimes hide too. Neighbors visit me too and they all like me. I was a bad boy the other day because I ran out of the house but they caught me. I really just wanted to check out the neighborhood. There is a park around the corner that mommy promised to take me to because my other doggie friends go there. I have to go take a nap now so thank you for sending me to New York. Love “Coach” (with Florence in New York)
Debi, Thank you so much for this wonderful addition to our family. He is the definition of cute!! His crate (after the flight) was clean and he was so adorable. Tentative only for a minute and soon bouncing all over. You are wonderful. He’s adorable, has a great personality and the girls love him! Although I think they are realizing now just how much work a puppy involves. We have a little routine down and he seems nearly grass-trained now, obviously started by you..And he has two speeds — speed-play and sleep. But he seems very happy. I will send you pictures as soon as I figure out how to download them from my new digital camera. Thanks, Debbie
Debi, Max is doing great. He has embraced our family with flying colors. Aside from the toe chewing and stealing toys from my 15 month old, he is staying out of trouble. We have taken him on some walks and he tries to get into the push car with my little son. He would rather ride than walk. He does really well on the leash. My Mom thinks he is gifted and talented. I am attaching two pictures that I thought you would like to have. Thanks so much for all you have done to bring Max to us! I promise to keep you updated! PS: I am attaching a picture of Max’s favorite napping position. He is learning to play fetch. He brought the ball back to me every time tonight! He is definitely gifted and talented. Lori
Hi Debi, Here are some new pics of my baby. 🙂 He is such a great dog!!! I like to think he is very happy… it’s very rare to not see him with a smile on his face. He ALWAYS looks like he’s smiling. Sarah
Debi, I just wanted to write in and say hi and tell you both that I am really, really happy with my new Human Mom and Pom Sister (Browneigh). …My mom gives me lots and lots of love everyday. She carries me around and kisses me and tells me how pretty I am everyday…I like it best though when she gives me those yummy treats and rubs my fat puppy tummy!!! …..She really, really takes care of me all the time… Mom gets me lots and lots of new toys and I love to play with them all day. I have lost pretty much all of my baby teeth now but my new chewing choppers have come in nicely…good thing because I have a lot of things I like to chew on!! My mom even lets me run all through our big house – up the stairs, down the stairs, out the back door, back into the kitchen, around the bar, around the couch, on the bed and lots of other places in the house too. Don’t be fooled though cause I get in trouble too – like when I chew up mom’s shoes, she doesn’t really like that too much, or when I steal the dirty laundry and run around the house so mom can’t catch me. I learned how to climb up onto mom’s bed and then I like to jump up and down and play…mom let’s me and she just laughs at me and tells me I’m so silly. OH Yeah…I almost forgot – me and Browneigh get a bath every two weeks. Susanne comes over to our house and bathes us, brushes us, clips our toenails, and blows us dry so we can be pretty all the time!! I have to have a bath alot because I like to roll in the mud and run through the sprinklers…mom doesn’t like that so much, especially when I do it right after I get a bath but I think it’s a lot of fun!!!! I hope you are doing well and please don’t worry about me because I love my new home and I love my new family but most importantly…they love me!!! Love, Britgezz (aka Auralee)
Debi, I want to thank you for letting Antoine become a part of our family. He has been AMAZING!!!! I love him so much!! Everything I could ask for and want. He has been full of life. I do not ever want to leave his side. I have taken him everywhere with me… Grocery store, Lowes, Ice Cream shop, Pet Smart. He has adjusted so well with us. So far he has not whined. Well, except for when I have to vacuum, if I put him in his crate he will wimper if he can’t see me. He is just darling. I am so surprised at how calm he is. I have been told that Poms are “yappy”. He is not that way at all. I just knew he would maybe bark a lot at the cat or other animals when we are out and about. He loves to chase our cat and she just goes off running or will get under something to where he can’t get her. She has not been aggressive towards him at all. She still goes on about sleeping all day. He is so good at going potty on the puppy training pads. He has gone outside twice to potty. I was so proud of him when he did it. I just wanted to tell you guys thank you from the bottom of my heart. He is perfect for us!! I attached some pictures of him. Happy Easter! Christina
Debi, Britgezz is doing great – she’s happy, all she wants to do is play and play and play some more. She wears herself out every night when I get home just running and running in the back yard with me. She’s almost sleeping through the night now – only wakes up around 3am but it’s because she needs out – I imagine that will subside with time as well…she’s perfect and we all love her!!! Also, I took her to the Vet Wednesday and he said she was 150% perfect as well!!! He commended you on how well you took care of her… I will send some more pictures of Britgezz when my daughter gets back from the coast and brings the camera home…for now Britgezz is extremely happy and loved!!! Sincerely, Deb and Jef
Dear DeeDee’s Pomeranians, I would like to thank you for our beautiful baby Millie. She is almost a year old now, and we can hardly imagine it has been that long! She has the best personality of any pomeranian I have ever owned. She is sweet and affectionate and always happy. She is also a beautiful little girl and any time I take her out, people always ask where I got her, and I always tell them. We just love her to pieces and could not imagine life without our Princess. We would buy another pom from you in a second! It was just a great experience! Thanks again, Mandy
Debi, Thank you for being so amazing! You truly know how to handle your business! In a day when I get very frustrated with the lack of care, you amazed me. Matt
Purchasing a puppy is always a huge decision, but you made it such an easy and fun one! You were so helpful, answering all of my questions (and there were a LOT of them) and sending pictures each week while I counted down the days until my Oliver arrived. Once I received my pup, I could tell what a loving home he had come from – he is so social and sweet and just the happiest littleÂ guy you have ever met. It is so nice to know that I can always email you wih any questions I have along the way – I can tell how much you love your puppies and value their adopted “parents”! Jennifer
