Our Beloved, Ruger
~Celebrates Two Years
Our beloved pup Ruger just turned 2, and it’s been the best 2 years for our family. He adds so much joy and love to our lives! He is such a goofball too!
He loves helping with the laundry…until the squeak of the pantry door. I was folding laundry the other day and he started falling asleep. I snuck off to grab a snack, and who shows up? The kitchen supervisor, with Jeff’s shirt dangling off his back. He makes us laugh on a daily basis and we are so grateful for him!Thanks, Shela and Cliff for our little guy! We can’t imagine our lives without him!
Mom says at the kennel they call me the wild one. It’s just because when we get to the kennel I run straight into the front door of the kennel and when Mom picks me up, I run from the kennel door into Moms car.
Benson loves playing with other dogs. He is fast, happy, loves to retrieve, and is loveable. To his delight, there are deer and lots of quail in our backyard. He will retrieve into the lake but stops when it gets deep. We will continue working on this. I thank you for Benson, he is a big joy in my life. Marsha
It is good to hear about Benson. Keep working on the water retrieve–you will get him swimming. We love that you love him so much. Thanks for thinking of us.
Hard to believe Dakota will be a year old this Wednesday. He is quite the character and at times a handful. But I enjoy every moment, even when he digs up a flower I just planted or attacks my pillow and then looks so innocent. He’s my best friend and I thank you and Cliff for bringing us together.Connie and Dakota Blue
Well, Benson is a few days short of one year. It seemed winter lasted forever. We have deer that live in the hills behind us. Benson would love to go after them but has to settle looking at them from the fence. Benson meets a German shorthair pal in the country here and they are so fast running and playing together. They are the same age and size and are great pals. Hope to eventually get him to swim in Wallowa Lake, he does love to retrieve and recently caught a magpie in the yard. He is growing up and behaves better. He is stubborn and never gives up but is also a sweetie. I am so happy to have him, thanks .. Marsha
At Wallowa Lake
This afternoon (August 9th), I took Benson with me in my kayak at Lake Wallowa. He sat still for most of the way, even fell asleep for a bit. Thanks for exposing him to water, I don’t think he was scared of the water.
He sleeps in his kennel at night and walks on the lead with ease. He is lovable and wants to please; however, at certain times, he ignores me and does his own thing. He starts puppy class next week. Thanks for him.
You are doing great! Keep up your efforts. For sure keep him water friendly so he can join you on the lake. We look forward to hearing more in the future.
