Hi there!
We got Summit from you in early summer 2016! His parents are Ransom and Primrose. I just wanted to let you know that he is thriving and is the best dog anyone could ask for. I was just 13 when we got him, and Iím now 20 and bring him everywhere with me! We have truly grown up together! Thank you for giving me my best friend!!

Hi Kitsy!
I saw the photos of your most recent litter - so cute! Reminds me of when we got Peachy. So exciting! Hope you and the rest of your family (human & canine!) are all doing well.
Here are some photos of Peachy (Jinx & Ransom, 5/5/16) that were taken over this past year. Peachy is such a rascal; a smart rascal, but also so loveable. A very happy-go-lucky dog!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Take care!




Hi Kitsy,
Your puppies look so cute! Even though Iím not ďin the marketĒ for a little one, I still love to look at them each week and I think about how excited their new families are to come get them! Here are a couple new pics of Hugo. Heís just awesome. He thinks hiking and beach days are the best. We love him!! Thank you!

Hi Kitsy
Hope all is well with you.... it's been a while since my last update on our boy.  Sailor (Sutter X Winter 10/15/19) is 3 years old now. He is 57 lbs, still full of playful energy and sass. He has grown into a beautiful, kind, affectionate and loyal companion. He has a friendly temperament, loves people, other dogs and even gets along with our cat. He is by far the smartest dog I ever had. We moved to San Diego last year and his training (obedience and agility) got interrupted, but we recently started it all up again and he learns even faster now...... We are going to start him in some sheep herding classes next month.

And still to this day, people will stop me to tell me how beautiful Sailor is...... even other Aussie owners.

Here are some pic of my best friend
Sincerely, Jan Clark


Hi Kitsy,
Just thought we let you know that Yuki
(Blake X Winter) is about four months old now, doing great, finished her vaccinations, started walking the neighborhood, and getting ready for puppy classes. As you can see from the first photo, she is our newest best friend. Also, as seen in the second photo, after her walks, she likes to lie down, splooting style, on the cool cement to cool off. She is a very smart and affectionate puppy.

Thatís it for now. Thanks again! Tim and Jodi


Just wanted you to know that we are doing really well with our pup (Blake X Winter). We named her West based on the lineage of the breed as well as that she came from you. We call her West, Westy, Little West.

We are quite in love. Sheís housebroken and crate trained. Sleeping through the night without whining most nights. Sheís got Sit, Down and Stay very well entrained. Working on the recall next and then fetch. She seems very happy running in the backyard, going on several walks a day and we took her up to the sierras last weekend.

Hope you are well and thanks again!

Greetings from Iowa. Still traveling with Tucker (Loretta x Sutter). Today is his birthday and we celebrated with a doggie birthday cookie. Heís still such an amazing travel companion.  Hope all is well back in California!  Once we settle back into a house, we may need to get a companion for him and will find out from you your litter plans. This guy is amazing!  He goes everywhere with us and we meet so many people because they stop for him. Here are a few pics from today. Look 👀


Hi Kitsy,
I can't believe Fay (Loretta x Sutter) is turning 1!
We absolutely love her. She has quite the personality, definitely is an Alpha Dog, and who would have known she would look and act like she does from her first puppy pictures. She is wickedly smart, super fast, loves to learn and beautiful. People stop us all the time to comment on her looks.
She is a great trail walker, just passed her AKC Trick Dog test and his in puppy agility and seems to love it.
Thank you so much for allowing her to come into our lives.
Warmest Regards,
Courtney and Fay



Hi Kitsy,

Send kisses to Scout and Loretta from our boys!

Hi Kitsy,
We are in Tennessee with Tucker (Loretta X Sutter). Just wanted to let you know he was amazing today. We walked across a swinging suspension bridge. Didnít faze him a bit. Sorry you canít see him well. He was lead dog. Bridge was too narrow to walk along side us. This dog has everyone stopping and talking to him. He is a credit to your breeding! Karen


Hi Kitsy,
I wanted to share this picture of Pearl with you, Kindle and Ransom's baby born in 2021. You really know how to breed the best dogs! She is by far the most delightful, fun, intelligent dog we have ever owned! She makes us laugh and brings so much joy to our lives every day! Just wanted to say thank you and tell you job well done ❤

Hi Kitsy,
Just wanted to send you a few pics from the road. Tucker (Loretta x Sutter) is an AMAZING dog. He has trained so easily. We take him everywhere with us and he is so socialized. He was walking the streets of Tombstone, AZ yesterday and gets to meet so many people. He is beautiful and so smart.

Thank you!

Hi Kitsy,
Just wanted to send you an update and picture of my gorgeous Enzo on his first birthday. He is just the sweetest most lovable dog ever. He and Elska are doing great and are so good for each other. Hope you are doing well!


Hi Kitsy,
Itís been a few years since weíve reached out but we wanted to let you know that our boy, Quigley, just turned 11 on December 27 and is doing great. He continues to bring us so much joy and a bit of Chaos even at 11. We hope you are doing well and just wanted to say Thank you for our boy!
