Here is a great new picture of the always photogenic Louis!
Louis is one of Doe Dee and Cesar’s males from August 20th. 2013. One of the owners from this litter has created a private Facebook link for only owners of this litter, if anyone wants to join it I will gladly give you the contact for a link. It is a really great idea and I love opening it and hearing about what the pups are up to in their respective homes.
Here is the latest pictures of Louis and his best friend Shane. This is such a well loved dog and Shane has put literally hundreds of hours into him. Louis needs a tether ball, it will keep him busy for hours and free up the reeling hand! LOL At one time I had a tether ball hung on the clothes line and Becki-Sue (the Russell that turned 14 in Nov.) would spend hours bunting it with her nose. As she got older and couldn’t jump high I lowered the ball. It finally rotted in the sun and I haven’t been able to locate another so if anyone knows where they sell them please advise me. Good job Shane and thanks for all your updates, they are really a part of what keeps me going. Pats and hugs from Grammie! He wrote:
Just a couple more pics of me and my fishing buddy. Lol
He loves it out there the only trouble is how sore my arm is the next day from throwing his ball. Haha
Here is a new picture of Lou. His family wrote:
My big guy. Hope all is well, sorry you haven’t heard from me for a while finally got harvest done so I thought I would send u a quick photo. Our big guy is doing very well and we love him more and more each day. He has been such a great companion for Chelene when I was gone to work, and with both kids gone now he is like the new kid so it has been great.
Louie’s family sent us this pic and wrote:
Thought I would send u a pic of Lou, Chelene and I out for the day fishing. It was 32 degrees and the big fella and I went for quite a few dips in the lake as well. He is just about a year old and he keeps amazing me at the stuff u can teach this guy. He is (like I have said a number of times) the best dog we have ever had. Thanks again for him.
This new photo of Lou was accompanied by this write-up:
Louie and I have been working for the past 2 weeks on his retrieving skills and I have to tell you there is no Labrador in the world that has it up on him! I have him doing blind retrieves and his hand commands are coming along unreal. Yesterday I started with two balls and was making him mark one and then doing a blind one with the other. I can tell you this guy is truly special. He is a machine. I cant wait to get him in the water at the lake and out of the boat it’s gonna be a riot. I will get some one to video him in the near future when we have it a little more mastered.
A sweet new picture of Louis. His family wrote:
I haven’t sent you a photo for a while so here is a quick one I took of our guy loving life having a nap with Chelene Sunday afternoon, hope all is well.
We’ve now got some pictures of Louie after his first haircut! His family told us:
Just a quick note to let you know our Louie had his 1st hair cut today… made Chelene sad that his curls are gone lol. Groomer said he was AWESOME (as usual) hahaha. Hope all is well.. Seen the pics of your standard pups man I would love to have one of those too but Chelene wants to wait and if you end up with the beautiful chocolate doodles she said she will want one of those for a brother or sister for Louie.
Another update on Louis. His family wrote:
Louie does trust me like I have never seen. He is so loyal. He is amazing but still doesn’t like to leave me out of his sight and if I go out and don’t take him along (which doesn’t happen very often) he lays at the door I left out of till I return.
Another great picture of the luckiest dog in Saskatchewan!!!! His family gave him high praises:
Just another quick pic of our Lou Bear. He is the best dog I have ever had, his personality is like no other….
Hope all is Well
Shane is a professional photographer so he send lots of pictures and great ones! He wrote:
Here’s a update on my buddy
This new picture just arrived with a sweet little note that read:
Louie says he misses you.
I recently got an update and Christmas greetings from Louis and his family that was addressed to “the best dog breeder in the world”. This is enough to make my head swell so my touque won’t fit! They also wrote:
Louie was to the vet yesterday and everything is great they love him there…thought I would send u a new pic he is 40lbs on the nose and my vet thinks he will b 70lbs all day long when he is full grown..he is stating to loose his baby teeth now. Hope all is well and have a great new year!
A Merry Christmas from Louis!
This is Louis. He is from Doe Dee and Cesar‘s August 20th, 2013, litter. His awesome new family lives in Carrot River. The first few days they had crate trouble so I told them some of my ‘crate training tricks’ to try.
When they met me in Invermay to get Louis two weeks ago, the roads were bad and their truck wouldn’t go in reverse so they had to bring the car, apparently the roads were even worse at their end. Then Shane sent me a picture of Louis in ‘his’ truck. So Sunday I sent him back a message that said how much I have enjoyed his sense of humour and all the texts and emails he sends and I asked if ‘Louis’ truck went in reverse yet. . This is what he sent back:
I look forward to becoming friends through this wonderful gift you have given me and my family, I have your web page on my favourites and check out your posts on your pups that have found a new home. Louis is the BEST, we love him so much, he is doing great in his crate and has only ever had two accidents in the house and that was my fault the first couple days we had him.Ya I fixed ‘his truck’ (at least he thinks it is his) LOL it goes backwards now. Things are great with him, he rolls over, shakes both paws, sits, and stays, lays down and doesn’t eat until his is told. AMAZING for a pup for just over 2 weeks of training. You have INCREDIBLE dogs and you should be very proud of them. I know we sure are. Thank you very much:):)
