Hi Andrea, I have no idea if my name rings a bell as it's been quite a while since we met you and brought home our puppy. My husband, two daughters and I spent an entire afternoon out at your place playing with all of the puppies. I am pretty sure it was your Willy that took quite a liking to our baby daughter in the short time we were there. Anyway, I have been meaning for some time to send you pictures and an update on "Bandit". He's just over a year old now, born 12/06. We brought him home when he was about 4 months old.
My husband was the impetus behind us getting a dog where I was quite hesitant as I knew I'd be the main caretaker. I could not be more pleased with our choice!!! Bandit has been the most amazing dog ever! He's only ever had two accidents in the house - one the day we brought him home and the other was totally our fault. He's really more like a camel in that sense! He's amazed us with his ability to "hold it", even when he was really "little". BUT the best thing about Bandit is how fantastic he is with our young daughters. Eva is almost 4 and reserved around animals. Heidi is 15 months and thinks animals are awesome, Bandit included. As you can see from the included pictures, Heidi has tested Bandit's patience more than once and the only thing he's ever done is look at her sideways as if to say "are you done yet crazy baby?" He is so gentle and never bites. He will bark at strangers until they pet him and then it's all over. His only fault is he doesn't quite realize his size yet and when he wants to play he seems to lose his peripheral vision. He's knocked the girls over once or twice but not maliciously, just out of excitement. We love him to death and will not hesitate to come back to Brewer's when we are ready for doodle #2!
Without further adieu, here are a few photos for your web page. And feel free to paste the email or paraphrase (or ask me to retype a tidbit for you if you'd like the testimonial for you site - which looks great by the way!).
