Hi, this is Tara. It's been a long time but I just wanted to say hello and let you know that the Boston we adopted from you is doing wonderful! We named her Zoe and she is as smart as can be... Already knows about 3 or 4 tricks! She has gotten all of her puppy shots and does wonderful at the vets. Just wanted to check in and let you know that we couldn't be happier with our little girl, and really wanted to thank you for her. Her and our corgi get along so well, and instantly bonded. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Tara Weber
Hi Jenny, We just got Willow spayed Wednesday. Attached is the documentation from our Vet. An update on Willow- she is doing great! I attached some pictures of her playing in the snow. She loves to play in it! We've just started dog training classes and are having fun with that. We absolutely love her! We couldn't have asked for a better dog. Hope all is well with you and your family.
Hi Jenny,Jeff, & Family,
Just wanted to let you know that Phoebe Noelle ( Our Precious Pug) is such a joy !! She is so full of energy and has brought so much joy and laughter into our lives.I think she might be just a little spoiled ! After we lost Sadie our first Pug of 15 years we werent sure if we wanted to adopt another one but boy are we glad we did.We just love her so much ! Thank you so much for raising such beautiful and healthy Pug's.
Terri & Jim Cook
Thanks so much for raising some fabulous dogs. Oscar has definitely become one of the family. He would be perfect if he would house train faster, but everyday is a little better and we expected him to need training. He's been a great addition to the family. My kids aren't even a little afraid of him. Took a little time for my middle child to stop jumping back everytime he licked her, but she absolutely loves him now that she knows he's not going to bite like the previous dog. Check out the pics I attached.
Hey Jenny! Here is a little update on Spanky =) We celebrated his 6 month "Birthday" on Thursday, with a huge eidble nylabone that was bacon flavored- his favorite! He was very busy this week, having two dog classes before his big show today. I attached a little picture of him doing a long sit (he is on the end, with Deanna). He was such a trooper; they got 3rd place with a blue ribbon! In our opinion he is still first place, hehe =) He is so unbelievably smart and never fails to make us proud. He is now crate trained, about 99.9% house broke, knows heel, sit, down, stay/wait, come, and will play fetch. He is growing up way too fast; his next vet appointment is to get neutered! Someone brought a 9 week old Boston to the show today, pretty sure I got puppy fever for a little bit! I still remember when Spanky weighed in for the first time at the vet at 3lbs with his collar on! This summer his coat lightened quite a bit and looks just beautiful- he reminds me of a caramel swirl brownie =) A while ago, Devin was out with him, and someone stopped him and asked to take pictures of Spanky, as they had never seen a Boston of that color =) and, I don't know how many times we have been stopped and asked where we got him; we always smile and tell them exactly where he came from! He has been such a blessing in our life! THANK YOU very much for breeding and raising such beautiful and wonderful animals =) I hope your summer hasn't gone too fast, and that the weather is a little cooler in Iowa, than Minnesota! Take care, Jenny! -Elizabeth
Hi Jenny - just wanted to forward a few pics of Ozzy. We are having so much fun with him. You gave us a great puppy! The last picture is how he likes to nap...which is absolutely hilarious!! -- Sara and Luke Vander Sanden
Hi Jenny and Jeff and Family,
I just want to give you an update on the puppy. We have named him Rocky. He is awesome! I think the best and easiest puppy we have ever had. He didn’t cry at all on the way home and sat on Beau’s lap (our 13 year old) and slept a lot on the way home. He hasn’t had one accident as is going outside in the back of his outdoor kennel in the rock area. We are taking good care of him. He has an outdoor kennel (which I don’t think he will be in too much), he has a crate, a soft side carrier, a bed, a mat, and lots of toys. He is drinking and eating out of his dish and playing outside. He is perfect for us and it is obvious you have done a great job. I will definitely recommend your dogs to others. I have attached some pictures for you. Thank you so much! Karin, Scott, Beau Pauly and Grandma
Had to share some pictures of Lilly. She has brought us so much joy! She gets spayed July 5th, I will send you a copy of the paperwork from the vet when that is done. She weighs 7 pounds now. Don’t know what we’d do without her! She pretty much goes everywhere with us when I run the kids around to their activities – they love her and so do their friends! My father-in-law stopped by our house today just to see Lilly, so she is very much loved! This is Lilly with our other house dog Holly. Sometimes Lilly lays on top of Holly, it is so funny.
Hey Jenny, Just wanted to let you know that Rocco is doing great in his new home. My fiance and I are so in love with him - he is such a good dog. He is the most social animal I know, curious about everything and everyone. He is so smart, too. I attached a few pics of him. Thanks for all your hard work the dogs! Gillian
Hi Jenny, I just wanted to say that the lil girl we adopted from you last week is such a sweetheart and has been an amazing addition to our family! The boys decided to name her Echo and she is greatly loved! She plays well and has been doing great with crate training/housebreaking! We love her to death and I will send pics soon :) Thank you so much!! Kelli Thumma
Hi Jenny, I've been meaning to send you an update on our dog (she was one of Sammi's puppies, I think). We got Bella from you a year ago in January and she will turn 2 in November. We can't believe it! She is just the best dog ever...her favorite thing is playing catch/fetch with any toy or ball you can throw but also loves to cuddle up on your lap and gives lots of kisses. She is very energetic and smart; we can work on something new and she will start to get it within a few tries. Bella is just the cutest dog we could ever ask for! We love her so much!! We hope to be back for another one in a couple years. I also attached a picture of her waking up from a nap on a pile of pillows :) Thanks for such a great pooch! Kate & Adam
Jenny, our puppy Daisy is doing great! She is almost four months old now and growing so fast. She is adorable, and everyone loves her. I've recommended Boston Babies to people that are thinking of a Boston. Have a Happy Easter! -
I thought it was time I send an update on the new puppy, Myles. He's been with us for a week now and we are loving every second. His big sister Chloe adores him and has been teaching him the ropes of life with the Kleffmans. He follows everything she does, whether it's going outside for a walk, chewing chewies in the living room or taking a ride in the car. His potty training is going amazingly well - only two accidents on the first day! He's super smart and already knows how to sit for treats and wait while you put his leash on to go outside. He LOVES to chew on chewies and play with toys at top speed until it's time to crash for a nap on the couch - or in my arms. It's so funny to see them together - they're so alike it's like watching Chloe and a tiny clone of herself!We have to say thank you for raising such a sweet, well-behaved puppy. Whether it's potty training, walking on the leash or being in the kennel, it has been a breeze to train him, thanks to you all. We'd have more just like him in a heartbeat.I've attached some pictures for you to take a look at. I'll keep you updated as he grows (which seems to happens faster every day). Again, thank you for everything - Mark, Chloe and I are in love!
Have a great weekend,
Thank you Jenny & Jeff,
We are quickly falling for this new brindle bundle of affection & spunky playfulness. I have a bug pile on my lap as I type this. Sophie is resting right next to me & Mertle has her head actually on my laptop. The packet of info is so useful & organized - thank you for that - her 1st vet appt is Wed. We stopped to take pictures at 2 rest stops on the ride home & she was so goofy doing this sit-hop thing. She is already a fast little bugger, so we got her a mini-harness for now. Last night, they lounged together on Mike on the couch. Sophie is adjusting really well to the new pup and her tail is always wagging - she is dominant but not aggressive with toys & she goes belly up sometimes and lets Mertle lick her. Mertle ate her 1st 2 meals with no problems (we stuck with the Eukanuba small breed puppy) & has had 3 good solid poops. I love, love her coloring - especially in contrast to Sophie's black & white - we really have 2 show-stopping dogs. I can't wait to walk around our neighborhood...people always stop to ask what exactly Sophie is dog-wise, even more now with Mertle probably - and of course, I'm a major bug hybrid advocate - Must Love Bugs! Thank you for breeding such a joy of a bug pup!
Jenny - It was love at first sight for us and Molly! Had a great evening with her and she slept through the night, Had an accident this morning, but that was my fault, She ate her breakfast right down and is currently sleeping on my lap. Hope to send photos soon. Thank you again for bringing this wonderful little girl into our lives! Kevin J
Jenny and family,
Guess what? We love our new Boston terrier more than anything! Not only that, but Winston loves him even more. They are so cute together and they act just like brothers. Winston is teaching Otis how to be naughty and we love it. Thank you again, Jeff, for driving to Williams, IA, to meet us. Otis is hilarious. He makes us laugh with his crazy antics. He is cute and we love watching Otis play with Winston. Winston is territorial about his toys, but he doesn't mind it if we pet Otis or give Otis treats. Otis always gives us a goofy look every time he wants to play with Winston or with us. We are satisfied TWICE. Thanks again.
John and Natalie
Good Afternoon Jenny,
We just got back from our official check-up and Sadie passed with flying colors. Dr. Henning said she is perfect. We got a good one J. Sadie weighed in at 4 pounds 9 ounces. She will be a nice compact pug. We go next Monday for shots. Our Vet clinic loves your records that you send home with your buyers. I was amazed that last night Sadie slept through the entire night without a peep.
Hey Jenny! Spanky is doing great! We sure do love him =) I took him to the vet on Wednesday for his first visit, he weighs 3lbs with his little collar on! The ladies behind the desk didn't want to send him back home with me; he was very good during his exam, wasn't scared at all! He is adapting really well to our schedule; Devin gets him up every morning at 5am to eat breakfast and go for a little walk, then he goes back to sleep in his crate until I get home from work a couple hours later. He goes to bed every night around 9pm, we snuggle him into his crate with a huge bottle filled with warm water and cover him up with one of his baby blankets- I think that is his favorite way to be tucked at bedtime =) Another one of his favorites is to take a nap with his face nuzzled into our neck; he is a little cuddle baby! He is very good about going to the bathroom outside, we are thinking of starting to teach him to ring a little bell when he needs to go out. He is also very good at coming to us when we call him, following us on his leash, and obeying the word "no". He is getting used to bath time, his favorite part is when he gets his face and ears washed with a damp cloth. He loves to play with his little squeak toys, and follow us around the house; he is still trying to master running and turning corners on hardwood floors =) Thank you so much for letting us adopt this little bundle of joy! He has been such a great addition to our life! You can truly tell he was raised in good hands =) We will hopefully send you an updated picture soon! Thanks again! Elizabeth and Devin
Just a message about our experience with Miss Pearl. First of all, Pearl was a gift to me for my 50th birthday. I wanted to start with that so readers know how long I have had pug pets. My first Pug was in 3rd grade when I got Susie for Easter. Then there was Lucy, Chewbacca and LuLu. We lost our last Pug, LuLu about 2 years ago and thought that was the end of our pet days. Well, we noticed your web site and watched it routinely. We had decided if we got another pug, it would be from you. We had experienced bad inbreeding in our last one, and felt confident your pugs were top notch. On January 20th, 2011 we looked at your site and saw the most beautiful black pug ever. We had to have her. 8 weeks later (after countless updates and pictures from you), we brought Pearl home. Now, 4 weeks later, I can not tell you how much life has changed and how much we have been blessed by your special care for Pearl. Getting a puppy has been an adjustment, but there is no doubt Pearl is the best pug we have ever had. You were right when you called her a diva and she is a total brat, but that is what gives her spirit! She is now the queen of the house and knows it. Potty training is going pretty good except for soft things that might be on the ground (pillows, quilts, her foam bed), she loves to hide under the couch and beds with shoes and underwear she steals from us, she thinks we are her litter mates and wants to pull on our ears, hair or pant legs. She has even given Tom a pierced ear! She loves pig ears and greenies and prances around with them like she is the most important person in the world! We love her to pieces Jenny - Thanks so much for giving her a good start! All my friends think we need another one to keep her company but thankfully you have no more pugs on your site at this time
We are wanted to tell you again how happy we are with Luca, the Boston terrier we adopted about a month ago. She is truly a gem of a dog! She is very friendly and has a mild temperament. She has barked only a handful of times and loves nothing better than to sleep away the afternoon or evening in your lap. This is not to say she is lazy, rather she is a perky dog that loves to go for walks and meet the neighbors. Luca learned her name right away and was sitting on command after 1 quick session. She is wonderful!!! Lori, Dave and Noah
Jenny - just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know the Peanut is doing wonderfully in our home. He's is just a doll and everyone who sees him loves him up. Thank you so much for taking such good care of him before he came to our home!!! We love him!
Hey Jenny! Just thought I would send you a quick e-mail updating you on our new puppy. We decided to name her Maggie Mae and she is doing wonderfully! She is such a little sweetheart and everyone just adores her. Everywhere we take her people oooh and ahhh over her :) She only barked for two nights and now shes sleeping though pretty much the whole night. We took her to our local vet on June 29th and everything checked out great. She met my moms 5 year old Boston Terrier and they had so much fun playing. I can't wait to get a second Boston! Thank you!!!
Hi Jen! Just wanted to let you know the puppy arrived late Monday night. Jim was great. Stella is so great. She will going to the vet today. I cannot believe how great she is with the boys. They just love her!! Thanks again.
Hi,Just wanted to thank you again for all you do. Our new puppy is now named Baxter Alexander and he is just what we needed to begin healing from losing our Miss Brooke. We are also very excited about Miss Bella coming home soon. Baxter is a doll and loves our cats as much as he loved Brody from first sight.Keep us informed as to our little girl. Have a great weekend.The Dole’s
Maya is so great!!! We love her so much; she is the sweetest little girl ever. She’s so cuddly and loves to give kisses. She’s adapting really well to her surroundings and after the first night in her kennel the next 2 nights were great. I want to thank you so much for everything, we couldn’t be happier. We will keep you updated as she grows. Thank you again and a BIG thank you to your husband for waiting for us in Albert Lea as we were late due to construction. L Maya is truly a blessing.
Take care and keep breeding beautiful puppies!
Carrie & Jered
Just wanted to thank you for our new puppy! We love him!! :) You were right, he is such a sweetheart. Thanks again!
WE ARE SOO HAPPY WITH OUR LITTLE GIRL! she's well rested now and loving to play...haa...thanks so much! Roxy had her Vet appointment today, all is well.she weighed 2.5 lbs and she'll go back in 2 weeks for 2nd round of shots. (my brother is excited too!)
THanks again! Cory
Mia is doing great with her first day home. She barely whined in her cage last night and she is using the "pee pads" really well. Of course she pooped on the car seat and peed too, yesterday!Lilly doesn't quite know how to "play" with her. We are just watching every interaction to make sure Lilly doesn't get her in the eye....that is all I'm worried about.Thank you again for all of your assistance and help. You always go above and beyond! PS Good luck with your surgery, we will say a prayer for you! Julie & Keith
Thought you might like to see some pictures of how our little Bugg is doing. The kids named him Bruno and he has been wonderful! He slept great last night and didn't whine at all!! And no accidents in the house yet either!! Thank you soooo much...he is going to be a wonderful addition to our family and REALLY spoiled!
Hi Jenny! I adopted a boston puppy from you last halloween 2008 and just wanted to give you an update and some pictures. We named her Raina and she is great. We love her so much and she is such a good dog, she learns very quickly and listens well. Thank You so much for the wonderful puppy! I will definitely recommend you to anyone I come across that is interested in a pug or boston. Have a great day!! Jessica
Hi Jenny, my wife Debby and I purchased our little Boston Daisy from you about a year ago. As you know, she has needed some medical treatment. I am happy to tell you that she is doing great and is thriving. I also wanted to compliment you on your professionalism and integrity as a breeder. Which is sometimes hard to find. Your help has been greatly appreciated. We will gladly recommend you to anyone that asks us for a good breeder, and would absolutly adopt another puppy from you in the future. 2 dogs is enough for now though. :o) Thank you again, Nate and Debby Bostrom
we brought Roxy home from the Vet today after getting her microchip and getting fixed.
She is going very well and has an awesome personality. we are so happy with our puppy!! thank you so much for letting us bring her into our lives.
jenny, just an update on the pug(bug) I surprised Kevin with....if you remember our sweet little puggy(also a bug) was chased into a busy street by some over zealous and unprofessional humane society officers and died of hesd injury from a car right in front of me!!! It was Kevins birthday ...our dog was such an important sign of our independence from a bad set of circumstances and was such a source of entertaimnent and fun for his high school buds..we live next door to Creighton Prep (kevin is a junior there)we both were crushed..being a single mom is a job and money is always an issue.. I was racking my brain to find a pup!!!
I found your site and explained about pug and Kevin...and viola!!! Ziggy is here...the discount made it possible..I drove to Des Moines w/ my niece and made it back before scool was out..these dogs make such cute puppies!! I "hollered" at Kevin about his messy room and said go clean it right now...the usual but moms were lost when he saw ziggy wagging his little tail and jumping all over him!!! I knew the same breed was a good idea!!! Thank you...he is naughty(Kevin AND Ziggy!) but I can handle both of them!!! Lisa
Hi Jennifer! Sorry it took so long to send you an update, things have been crazy around here! The little boy we got from you is doing awesome! We named him Radar (are you a M*A*S*H fan? LOL!) and it suits him perfectly. He marched into our house like he'd lived here for years, and won my husband over the instant he got home. The first couple nights were rough with the whining, but he settled down and got used to the crate at night real quick, and now he's a good sport and we never hear a peep at night. I wish it had been tht easy to get my kids to sleep through the night! Potty training's been a bit rough, but today he actually rung the bells we hung on the front door two different times and did his business when we took him out. So I'm hoping it wasn't just a fluke, and that he's finally starting to catch on.
Radar loves to cuddle up and take a nap with anyone, he's a real snuggler! I love it! He rides great in the van, so we take with him us a lot of the time when we go anywhere. He's learned sit already, now we just need to get his biting and pant leg chasing under control, he does love to bite! I'll be taking him to puppy kindergarten soon, so hopefully we'll learn a thing or two there!We absolutely love and adore him! My stepdad wants a Boston now (he tries sneaking Radar out in his jacket everytime he comes over) so after they move in the spring we may be contacting you again! Thanks again, and I hope your family has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Kasha & Allen Dombrowski Riley, Anthony, Colton and Radar
Dear Jenny- I wanted to give you an update on Otis, the Boston I got from you a little over 2 years ago. Otis is the smartest dog ... sometimes I think too smart!! He is so well behaved and never has accidents in the house. He is the sweetest cuddler and loves to sleep in on the weekends. He rules the house but thankfully he grew out of his destructive stage... a few pairs of shoes later. Now sometimes when I come home from work I find that he's brought my shoes into his bed with him. Not to chew on, but I guess for the scent.
Otis and I started out in DC but a year later my work brought us to Helsinki, Finland!! Otis and I had the best time, particularly because the Finns love their dogs and open spaces. There were plenty of dogs to play with and parks to play in. The vet said that Otis was so well proportioned compared to the Bostons that are bred in Helsinki. His legs are longer and his snout is longer also... he hardly ever snores! Now we've moved back and live in central PA where there are plenty of parks as well. He is doing great and I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful dog. I've attached 2 pictures of him (there are hundreds) just so you could see what a cutie he is. He is sleeping with his favorite toy on the couch. He literally stops people on the street and gets lots of compliments. He's very friendly and will play with anyone or any dog. I may be biased but he is the cutest dog ever. Hope you and your family are well. Take care, Evelyn and Otis
I want you to know that I was truly touch by your generousity and random acts of kindness. In this world we call earth there needs to be more people like you and your family. Thank you again for the positivety you place on earth with giving a puppy to those who because of no fault of theirs have their live brighten by your puppies. Thanks you once again for your random acts of kindness Debi
Stella, our bugg is now 12 1/2 weeks old. She is almost 80% potty trained. We put paper and pee-wee pads in front of the door and she runs to the door and goes on the paper. She also goes outside whenever we take her out. She is remarkable, and only has accidents when I let the time get away from me. I put her in the cage when I leave, but otherwise she has a bed and she runs to it to take her naps or to eat her bones (tons and tons of bones .. she loves to chew) I keep a small space heater near her bed and she loves the extra warm air. I admit she has been sleeping on a towel in my bed at night. She did have a few accidents the first week-- but now she makes it from 11:00 until 7;00 am without moving a whisker. Ruby, our 5 year old Boston adores her too -- although they can get really wild and wrestle like wild animals!!
You really took great care of your dogs, and your effort is evident. I can tell she had some experience with paper and grass- or it would not have gone so smoothly. I will gladly give a reference to anyone who wonders about the Bugg (much more mellow than a pure Boston!!!!) or how nicely trained they are.
Jenny - I just wanted to give you a birthday update for Carley. She is now 1 and doing great. She is in wonderful health and loves to CHEW, CHEW, CHEW! I am very happy with her! Thank you for such a wonderful puppy! - Amy Amy Ver Meer
Just thought I'd send a couple pics of Yoda at 4 months old. He is doing very well. At almost 5 months, he can do a number of tricks (about 12), including rolling over, sitting, jumping, doing hurdles (over my leg), giving a kiss, fetching, doing circles, playing dead when I say "bang,"laying down, begging, shaking hands, and giving a "high 5." He loves taking a shower with me. He will being going for his neuter next Monday. He is getting a bit spoiled, but he doesn't mind. He enjoys playing with out big Tom "Whiner," and is definitely the "Alpha Male" with his other play buddies. Thanks for a great dog!!!
hi Jenny just wanted to let you know we got the puppy home okay. He is so sweet its taking a bit for our other dogs to get used to him but I think they will be fine, he gets along great with my kids especially my three yr old daughter he follows her everywhere its so cute. Thank you again he will be a great addition to our family and hopefully bring some excitement back into our older dogs..
Hi Jenny - I want to thank you so much for our new Bugg puppy (named "Flash" by my son) he is absolutely adorable and very sweet. The only issue we have had is getting him to focus on going to the bathroom outside because people keep coming up to look and play with him! I want to also thank your husband for meeting us half way and to again apologize for being so late - he was very understanding which was much appreciated.
I just thought I would let you know that the pups are doing great! They are so active. Maddux is so sweet a very good dog. Jezzy is very very onery, but so tiny still. The vet says she is definitely going to be a smaller pug. They are both very very good. Everyone that has been around them said they had very good breeders. We are so proud of both dogs. thanks again! Amy Jenny,
Hope this finds you and your crew doing well. I just wanted to check in and let you know that Bella is WONDERFUL! She got a glowing check-up from the vet. She is full of energy but not hyper. Potty-training is going amazingly well - only a handful of accidents. She can sit on command and releases "toys" that aren't hers in favor of a more puppy-appropriate one. All the family members are adjusting to her, slowly but surely. We started Puppy Kindergarten classes yesterday and I think she will be the top of her class!
Bella is a joy to have around and we are loving her to the fullest extent of the law - LOL! Thanks so much! We will send pics soon!
I Just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful little Boston Terrier puppy. We named him Bugsy! It was long drive to and home from Iowa but it was so worth it. I couldn't wait to get the little guy home. He has been adjusting very well to his new home. He slept through the entire first and second night and hasn't had an accident in the house at all...yet. : ) We already have an English Bulldog puppy (7 mos old) who seems to be showing Bugsy the ropes and helping him adjust. I really appreciate the care and feeding instructions you enclosed for me, even the extra bag of food! It was a pleasure purchasing a puppy from you.
Hey Jenny! I just wanted to thank you so much for my little guy- I named him Gizmo. Tell Jeff I'm sorry again for arriving late today. It took a lot longer to get there than I anticipated and then I got a little turned around.. But I was ecstatic when I finally got to see my bugg!! The car ride home was very good! You were right, he is so loving and adorable! I think he will be potty trained real quick- today is only the first day and he did Wonderful! Thank you SO MUCH for all the paperwork and everything! I am so happywith Gizmo and I cannot wait for all of the time I will spend with him. Tiffany
We wanted to let you know that our new puppy is the PERFECT match for our family! We are falling love all over again, much more quickly than we ever thought possible! Jenny, she is doing SO WELL with the pottying! She hasn’t gone potty in the house YET! She’s pooped twice in the house and I think she tried to give us warning first. We’re catching on to her signals! She immediately goes when we take her outside! She’s so intelligent! Thank you again! You have helped us more than you can ever imagine!
Amy, John, Kristin & Sam Wolf
Hi Jenny! The pups are doing great! They are doing so well in their crate training. We have only had 2 accidents so far. Which I think for 2 pups is great..were you working with them? Jezzy is very stubborn and very busy which is funny to see the difference in the two of them. The first night we had to get up twice to let them out but last night they only woke us up once. I couldn't believe it. Maddux likes to sleep a lot but loves to play with Jezzy. They are awesome, we just love them so much. You have done such a great job with them.
Jenny,we LOVE our little guy! My 2 yr old grandson named him Puppy Jimmy, he is just a sweetie, so cuddly...sometimes when we take him outside, he ends up falling asleep on my lap..thanks again!
Hope all is well with you and your family. Just a little update on Moxie and Gabbie. Both are doing great. Sarah and Gabbie still live in St. Paul and Moxie of course is with Lisa and me mostly spending time in Ely. Moxie has been doing quite a bit of agility training and really enjoys it. Her personality is full of energy, loves the challenge and not afraid of most things. She does the tunnels, jumps,table, teeter totter, A frame, tire. Oh, she is OCD on balls, even to the point of passing up food! She understands so much that it is a little scary! Can you tell that we are having such a good time with her? At any rate, our Iron Range Dog Training Club is having a show around the first week of April and we were asked to show Moxie and perhaps have a Boston terrier booth. Do you have any literature that you could share? Perhaps business cards? We have no idea regarding attendance, this is a first. I plan on doing some homework on this so if you don't have time, I do understand. Once again, thank you for Moxie! Larry and Lisa and the Mox
Jenny – I just wanted to thank you again for such a great little Boston! She has her crazy moments but she is so sweet and funny!I’ve attached a picture of us from a couple weeks ago. She has grown a lot since then and it seems like she gets bigger every time I turn around.
Holidays are over and I see you have quite the number of little ones at home. I don't know how you do it. Bryan and I purchased Zoey from you almost a year ago. She is so big! Last time we weighted her she was a little over 20 pounds and our vet is amazed at the fact that she is ALL muscle. For the food she eats I'm surprised she's as big as she is. She eats when she wants and she leaves what she doesn't, but she demands that theres food in their at all times.She keeps finding new ways to tell us she's the princess. We decided to get her a bigger kennel one of the wire ones a while back probably about 6 months ago and about 3 months after we got it; we discovered that she has mastered how to escape the kennel. She has done it once since, but she only escapes when she wants too. Now that we know that she can get out when she wants we just leave her door open at nights. Then we decided that we would leave her out while at classes we bought an expandable gate. Well she learned how to unhook it if we didn't latch it, so we began to latch it. Day one, the gate was snapped in two and open. I was out of the house 5 minutes while scooping snow, but she knew to stay in the kitchen. When i came in she didn't cross the kitchen line until i said her name. I was amazed at her strong will of NOT being gated. The gates that you push against the wall, she has decided to charge and knock over as fast as you can put them up. SO since we have no choice, we have been told their is NO limiting her in our house.
We took your advise and bought a nylabone; it lasted about 2 months. Then we had to take it away because I was finding blood on the carpets then on the bone then I would look and her gums were bleeding?? I don't know like if that is ok, but then it got excessive and not just like a little here and there, so we took that away and Bryan tried to grind it down at work and we gave it back. But it like lasted a week and it was back into the same condition. She loved them though so we may just have to stock up and then just keep them as long as possible then just throw them. But that idea is amazing; i recommend you share it with everyone. She's already put holes in all her rubber and stuffed animals from x-mas; which i don't know how she does it so quickly, but she loves to hold them down and just rip on them.
She is quite the opinionated dog in my opinion. Bryan bought 3 rugs and one was really ugly and Zoey thought so too, so she took care of it for me by shedding a 2*5 rug in 30 min. She's never chewed on a rug before or after! She moves them to by her bowls, but has never chewed on one?? I just don't understand that amazing little mind that you breed for us, but she has found her place as a college dog. WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER! And she is amazing with kids and babies!
Thanks SO Much,
Bryan, Kelsey, & Zoey
Hi Jenny, I would like to let you know how wonderful this last year was raising Zara. One year later it is hard for me to imagine our lives without her. She has made our home her castle and she is best friends with our children. Our boys have learned a great deal of responsibility in caring for her. Having three boys means there is always rough housing and alot of boisterious noise and she loves to romp with the boys. But she knows her limits. She listens well when it is time to calm down and I am always amazed at how she allows the baby...now 18 months...to pull on her lips, ears, and legs and she doesn't even think twice about it. Our youngest son has recently brought her name in to his vocabulary and is just precious when he calls for her. She has recently learned how to dance for special treats which is greatly entertaining. It is so nice in the evening when all the kids are in bed and you finally sit down for a bit and she jumps up and settles right in with you. She is a snorer. It is pretty funny how much so. Her favorite pastimes are going out and eating snow and sprawling out in front of the fire place. We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to add such a wonderful addition to our family. Candi, Jon, Xavier, Zane, Quentin, & Zara
Two years ago, this time we had gotten back from our cruise to find mom grieving for the Princess she had to put to sleep while the 4 of us were gone. When Al and Mar got back to Aiustin, MN, they started looking for another doggie for mom, but nothing caught their eye nor impressed them! Till they saw your site on the web.And that is the beginning of our story with Princess two and our friendship with you all! Princess Too came into our lives Christmas Day and our lives have never been the same.Mom is so in love with her fur baby and this Boston is one of the best we have ever had and thosewere many over 53 years of our dogs and add another 20 on of grandma and grandpa's bostons!
Thank you Jenny, thank you so much for making our lives even happier! I hope to get some good Pictures come Christmas day, and will send them to you. Thank you again we just love our doggie
It's Rex's FIRST B-day today!!! He went to Petsmart yesterday and picked out a new mouse toy (Looks like real fur, but has a hard nylabone belly in it). He also got some greenies and various new treats. Just wanted you to know he is happy and healthy and is SPOILED to a ridiculous degree!!! Hope all is well with you guys and that you had a great Thanksgiving. -C
Hi Jenny - just wanted to let you know how much we absolutely adore our new puppy! We have decided to name him 'Jackson'. He's so loving and friendly. We love him!

Hi Jenny- Just wanted to say hello. My boyfriend and I bought a female boston from you in august..I believe. We were in NE just moved to FL so we dont have any pics on the computer to send you yet. But I wanted to let you know how much we love her and how good she is! She is an amazing dog and has the most spunk of any puppy I have ever known! U know what you are doing and you are great at it! We love our little girl and thank you lots! We named her Addison by the way! THANKS! Melissa & Jack
We made it home (as you can tell). Last night was a busy night but the boys did well. They had the typical accidents but all expected. We got up at 2:45 a.m., went outside and then came back in and they played for an hour. Eventually I just turned off the lights and they snuggled back in. They are so incredibly sweet and precocious. They've gotten their appetites back and have eaten quite a bit this evening. Our other dog is tolerating them well and they are actually not annoying her too much. The plane ride went really well which I was fairly nervous about. We had a very short lay over in Denver which was good so I didn't let them out for fear they would go to the bathroom on the carpet in the airport. I took them out just before I went through security in Des Moines. I had a lot of comments from the security people about how darling they were. And people on the plane were shocked two puppies traveled so well. They've been great. One of them is curled up sleeping in my lap right now.
Thank you so much for all the nice things you sent back with me. The dishes were a lifesaver (love the non skid part) and the tires and balls were a big hit in the hotel room. I'm more than glad to have the nice shampoo and will get plenty of use out of it. And thanks for your T-shirt. It does fit and I will enjoy wearing it. What a fun idea. Now I can advertise for you! Although I think your dogs do that very well too. I read the puppy magazine you sent with all the papers too. Lots of good info in there. And thank you for having all of their papers in order for me. I hope your night wasn't too late and that you all had fun shopping. It was great to finally meet you all! What a beautiful family you have! Thank you again for everything and for meeting me. I got around fairly well (thanks to MapQuest and the convenient location you picked out) but was very glad when I got to the hotel last night. Iowa is a great unknown secret. I really enjoyed the scenery and the nice people.
You've been such a wonderful help. I am just loving have our guys home with us. Mark is quickly warming up to them too. He had a list of twin names he had gotten off the computer when I got home. We need to name them soon! I will stay in touch! I feel like you are the surrogate mother...you need to hear they are doing well and we are loving them. Take care!
Talk to you soon.
Hi Jenny, I know it has been quite a while since I've talked to you but I finally downloaded some pictures and got them organized and I wanted to send them to you so you could see Chance and his brother KC (the puggle in the pictures), the little girl is my daughter. Chance is doing so great!! We have had him since July of 2006 and he is the best dog ever, I don't think i could love a dog more than i love him!! He is younger than KC and he is so much better behaved than him! Chance doesn't have to be in his kennel ever, but i would never leave my house or even go out of sight of KC without putting him in his kennel -if i did something would be destroyed!! But i never have to worry about Chance, he is such an awesome dog... he really is my little baby, and he is spoiled rotten! I just wanted to thank you for him, he is such a special part of our family and things would not be the same without him!! Thank you! Hope you enjoy the pictures! Paula Cedar Falls
Just thought I would send you some bugg/pug pictures of Nellie & Otey. They Are both doing great!! Nellie & Otey are in love. I didn't think anything Could be a sweet as Otey but Nellie sure is. The kids adore her & she has the Best temperament. Attached are some pictures because I know you didn't have many Of your past buggs and she is so darn cute. So many people inquire about her because She is so different looking. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and thanks again Hope you
Are doing well. Jackie Newell
Zoey is doing great and we couldn't have asked for a better puppy; she's so intelligent, impressive, and super adorable. We love her, so much and we appreciate you and your family's job in raising her until we could have her.
Thanks so Much,
Have a Great Weekend
Kelsey Zenor and Bryan Geise
Just wanted to say thank you again for everything. Everything went smoothly in picking up my new baby on Friday. Bailey is doing very well and seemed to transition almost immediately to his new surroundings. On the way home in the car, he cuddled with my friend and behaved so well. He is such a good boy and happy puppy and quite the character! :) Thanks again and I will keep in touch with any questions and with his development.
Hi Jenny, It's been a while since I've e-mailed you, but Frankie will be turning two on August 8th, and I wanted you to see how nicely he's growing. He's doing extremely well, and he is so loved and so spoiled, he's loving life. I'm constantly checking out your website, looking at your available puppies, wishing I could get another one, but knowing for now Frankie is all I can handle. Everywhere we go people are always commenting on how cute he is, and wanting to pet him, however, he's not too thrilled about strangers touching him before he's had the opportunity to check them out first. I hope you and your family are doing well, and having a great Summer. I will continue to keep in touch periodically with updates on Frankie. Getting him was one of the best decisions I've made. Take Care and God Bless. Kandace Brown Newark,NJ
Jenny, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for allowing us to adopt Jackson and Veruca. They bring us joy each and every day. Tomorrow is Jacksons birthday and I thought you would enjoy a photo of him, (he's in the red harness) and Veruca who turned two Feb 3rd. The humidity was down a bit this morning and they happily played outside for a while with us today. Hope that all is well with your family and all of the dogs. Thanks again!

Hi Jenny, Just thought I would send you a quick update. We decided to name our puppy Leela. She has been bouncing off the walls since we got her home, and seems to be adjusting really well. Even though we've had her for a short time, we can't imagine life without her. Thanks for giving us such a sweet and beautiful puppy. We also took her to the vet yesterday, and everything was perfect. Do we need to send you a copy of her checkup record? I have attached a couple of pictures for you, feel free to post them on your website. Thanks again, and we'll keep in touch. I think my parents are already thinking about getting one of your puppies sometime in the future.
Hello Jenny, I thought that you might like to see some pictures of Ceasar!! He is doing wonderful. He is fitting in to the family wonderfully. He is so loving. I just love those big sad eyes and his droopy jowls. He just looks at you when he gets in trouble and cocks his head to the side as if to say "How can you possible be mad at anyone with a face as cute as this" I will have to get you some pictures of him running and playing with the cats. One of the cats totally avoids him but the male cat runs after him and they play a lot. Though I think it is more Ceasar playing and the cat trying to get him t
