Sir Ruger Ferguson x Ferguson's Prarie Storm JH


Hi Liz!

Your post on FB reminded me to send this picture of Paddington. Isn't he a doll? I should weigh him too. I've been wondering what he's up to now. He's doing really well. He's in the final puppy class. We'll try for CGC in the next month or so. He's still a snuggle bug but also more and more independent. He loves puppy play time at school and car rides and walks. But we all can't wait for spring. Luckily, the kids love to play hide and seek with him and fetch in the basement. And he gets lots of time at petsmart and home depot. We are definitely into adolescence. That lab mouth needs to have something to chew on all the time. Luckily I've only lost one pair of shoes and he leaves the permanent things alone. Do you recall how long this phase lasted with Storm and Ruger? Any advice on anything we should be doing to make sure it's just a phase? Anyway, I was glad to see his brother's picture online. I'm sorry to hear Storm isn't pregnant after all. Hope you are well!

Hi Liz,

Just checking in to let you know Wilbur is doing great at 7 months! He is a little spoiled as you can see by the attached picture where I caught him napping on the couch!

The sitting came naturally. He is a smart dog. Already scratches at the door to go potty. The vet said he is very healthy, and the puppy class trainer said he is the most well behaved/smartest dog they have had here in years.

     Iink had his first major vet visit as an older puppy today to get his preceeding rounds of vaccines and a microchip. I decided to take him to my university's vetrinary school at ISU; as one of my old preffessors is a very talented doctor there that specializes in dogs. He weighed in at 47.8 pounds as I expected since he is such a ball of muscle. The best part was when he came back with the vet, she complimented me on on how well behaved he was for a puppy. As for training Iink knows how to sit, Lie down, Stay, Stop, Heel ect. All with whistle voice and or hand commands. Still working on better retrieveing skills but so far he's definately not shy of guns or loud noises. 


Hope everything is going well in your home and with your babies,

     She is completely healthy, got her vaccinations and I talked to them about the agreement. She said that you are a really good breeder and we are very lucky. She said not all breeders care that much!

Hi Liz,
Wanted to wish you and your family a Happy Holidays! We couldn’t be more thrilled with our newest addition to the family, Reggie (red collar).

He is such a smart boy and is learning so quickly! He loves his crate—we were able to sleep in a separate room after 4 nights! We went a whole week after bringing him home before his first accident in the house, and has done well (knock on wood) with potty training since!

His favorite things are munching on leaves, taking naps in his humans’ laps, and FOOD. He loves to meet new people, but especially loves his cousin Sierra (a 100+ lb Czech Shepherd). He’s learning to *gently* love his sister Luna (cat), although she’s still warming up to him!

When we took him to the vet, and they said he was a perfectly healthy little guy—no surprise there. They loved him so much, they’re featuring him as their January “Pup of the Month” on their website/social media!

I’ve included a few of our favorite pictures here. We are so happy with him, and cannot thank you enough! Hope you and little Freija are doing well!
