Welcome to our page! Bonnie and Belle are sisters as well as littermates. They were born 6/12/2012. We got the pups from a reputable kennel when they were 9 weeks old. They are precious loveable stinkers. The pups are pretty identical so Bonnie wears a red collar and Belle wears blue. Bess was born 9/16/2014 at the same kennel who joined our family when she was 8 weeks old. She is another precious loveable stinker and wears neon green.
Bonnie and Belle have been through 3 rounds of obedience training and are currently in training to take the Canine Good Citizen test. Bess has been through 2 rounds of puppy classes and will continue training.We have been prayerfully considering training the pups as therapy dogs and time will tell if they are suited for that.
Bonnie is outgoing, mischievous and a bit anxious although she has a big heart. When given a command she tends to think about it for a bit before obeying. We are working on that. She loves to show off her squeaker skills and continually tries to teach Belle how to squeak the tennis ball.
Belle, is a little more laid back, definitely wants to be the “good girl” and for the most part is the first to respond to a command. She is trying to learn how to squeak the tennis ball but is doing very well in catching it and bringing it back to be thrown again. She has been known to take Bonnie down if she gets to it first. Belle has emerged as the head pup which is fine with Bonnie and Bess.
Bess’s personality is still being defined. She is vocal, which is new to us, loveable, outgoing and catches on quickly to whatever she is being shown. She is Bonnie’s partner in mischief and cuddles with Belle. She actively seeks out her big sisters and looks to them (and of course us) if she is unsure about something.
Linus is a long hair kitty, was born June 2013 and thinks he is a golden retriever 🙂 Linus and Belle have a special bond. He’s had a bit of a challenging time since Bess pup joined our family. She loves to play with him but doesn’t know her own strength so his new nickname is “Leave It” but with patience we are getting things worked out and they are starting to play together.
Lucy kitty is also a long hair kitty and was born June 2002 so at 13 she is our matriarch and makes sure we all know it. She is a gentle but determined and keeps us all in line.
Thank you for joining us in our day to day adventures with our three pups and two kitties!
