I wanted to touch base with you about Conrad. We would definitely love to join the other happy owners on your website. He is the most amazing dog we have ever been blessed with, and I couldn't imagine life without this boy. He is very well mannered, fun and loving. Conrad is literally like our child! Thanks for the amazing opportunity to parent this amazing addition to our family. I attached some pictures for you!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Brenda! My name is Jessica, and my fiance Ryan got a RR puppy from you last year named Conrad. We just wanted to give you an update on how he is doing. Conrad is 100lbs at 1 year old! We honestly couldn't have asked for a better dog. He is beautiful, and has the best temper of any dog I have ever met. We have never seen him get aggressive towards other animals or people, and he is extremely social. He is running and being a crazy puppy. We have been feeding him Diamond Large breed with Glucosamine, and it works very well for him. He is best friends with our bengal kitty- so he is no lion hunter, haha. Our veterinarian absolutely loves him, and is very glad that we decided to bring him to their clinic for everything. He said that before meeting Conrad, he really wasn't a big fan of the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed, because the few RRs that he has ever treated have been aggressive and non-social. Conrad is a polar opposite of that! My brother plays college football right now, and as soon as he is finished his one plan is to get a Ridgeback, and I will definitely recommend My Real Farm when he is ready. I attached some pictures for you!!
Jessica and Ryan
Here he is making friends. Very well. All the weiner dogs took right to him except my one momma dog who laid him flat and made him cry like a girl. 4wheeler ride and cows and passed out

I just wanted to say thank you guys so much, my fiancé got some bad news and our English bulldog turned her frown upside down on her birthday. We just purchased a home and he was our missing piece. We're so in love with him the link below is when I surprised her in her birthday and our first couple months with our little bully. Thank you we will be in touch in the future we want another one.

Hi Brenda, We've named her Gypsy. Here's a picture. She is doing very well! :) Johnson Family Texas (Kia's Nursery 2017)
Hi Brenda, I actually have one of your pups from years ago.....10 yrs to be exact....long time....Rox is his name...I am attaching a picture of Max, Gixxer & Rox.... Rox is the one sitting down... Adoptive parent from 10 years ago.
We named her Harley! She is settling in.. she was kinda scared at first but I got her a bath and a blankey of her own and now she's snuggling! We have put Harley through puppy classes and an advanced class before taking a break to do an intermediate class because we feel confident that it will be good for her. She loves her sister, Lady hence by the pictures. I can never get one of just them individually. I had a painting done of them LOL they sleep in their little toddler bed they are spoiled rotten!!!She loves to lay out in the sun.

Just wanted you to know our girl is doing great!!!! Brett (2016 Tanzy's Nursery ) Oklahoma ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just another update to tell you that our not-so-little-anymore girl is now 13months! We celebrated her 1yr birthday just after Christmas, but in the bustle of the Holidays, we forgot to update you.
Lani (Dec. 2015 litter) is now right at 85lbs. and stands between 26-27" at the shoulders. She is a lean, muscle-packed girl who loves to cuddle or sleep on the couch during the daytime. She loves being outside for exercise, but much prefers long walks with me or the kids over time at the dog park. She has shown to be INCREDIBLY LOYAL to her close family, but pretty wary of strangers at first. She has barked just a handful of times in her 1st year, and is a joy in the house. In all honesty, she's never chewed up one item of household goods/clothes/etc.
She has been exactly the dog we hoped to make part of our family, and she is constantly getting compliments when we are out and about. Between her looks and her demeanor, many have asked where she came from. She graduated the first phase of Oklahoma City's K9 University as well. Here are a couple updated photos from the Fall.
All the best, Brett, Landry, and Kale Oklahoma (2016 Tanzy's Nursery)
Hi Brenda, I purchased Paisley from you last fall. She’s grown to a beautiful, sweet natured, healthy 60lbs+ dog. I couldn’t be more pleased with her.
Thanks again, Al (Pandora Nursery 2016) (Kansas City, MO)
Hi! Just wanted to check in. Oreo, now Mackenzie is doing great! She's so sweet and trying so hard to be good. She's figured out the doggie door and has only had a few accidents in the house. She doesn't love her crate but that will take time. So far she loves our old dog and our son. She thinks the rabbit is a toy so we're working on rabbits are friends not food. She loves the car and water!
Thank you again! Vanessa (English Bulldog 6/2016)
Hello Brenda -- here is Fezzik at 8 months. 85 pounds and very healthy. Super smart and head strong at times. Loves to run. Imagine all of those characteristics in a ridgeback. :). I think he looks just like his dad, don't you? Thanks again for being a great breeder who cares. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Today Fezzik turns two. Thanks again to everyone at MyRealFarm!
Steve (Tanzania 2014 Nursery)
Brenda, Thought I would send you a picture of Macie and her new siblings. She has been a really good dog and very smart! We are enjoying her more than I could even begin to tell you. Thank you for everything! You have been a pleasure to work with. Jollene and Brian (Iowa)
Hi Brenda, I just found your FB page and wanted to show you pictures of Jewel. I got her from you in March of 2009. She was from the December 13, 2008 litter so today is her 7th birthday! She is doing wonderful! She is so sweet, loving, and loyal. I am always being told how gorgeous she is!
He's 4 1/2 months. Going to be a big beautiful boy! LOVE this little dog!!!
Sue From 2016 Tanzania's Nursery
Brenda & Chris, Thank you SOOOOO much for being a part of my surprise proposal!!! After finding out that the puppy I loved in the pictures was sold, I was sad because she was just perfect, exactly what I've been looking for! On Thursday night Cameron and I were taking a walk at his grandma's house (my favorite spot for sunsets) and all of a sudden a perfect little puppy came running out of the corn field toward us with my ring on her collar!!! I recognized her right away!!! I said "Is that really her?? That's my puppy?!" Cameron said yes! I said, "How did you get her? A woman in Florida bought her!!!" He said, " I was the woman in Florida!" I was so impressed and so thankful that you were able to help him with this amazing surprise. She is the new love of our lives! We named her Pennie! She is a confident, happy puppy with lots of energy and love!! She has already brought countless laughs to us with her sparky personality! Pennie went to see the Vet on 10/26 and they said that she was 12.4 pounds and very healthy!! They could not get enough of her, they said she got the "Cutest new puppy" award and they put her on their website! We've already recommended you to two people who are interested in puppies! Thank you so much for raising such personable puppies, it is evident that Pennie had endless amounts of love from your family, as she will always have from us! She loves riding in the car and running in the leaves! We are working on house training her! I'm going to attach some pictures of Pennie's arrival! Thank you a thousand times over!!! You went above and beyond to help Cameron pull off the best proposal ever!!! :) Love, Cameron, Jillian and Pennie from Upstate New York P.S. We will continue to send you pictures as she grows, I swear she's already bigger than she was 3 days ago!! I am going to send 2 emails, all of the pictures won't fit in one! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Brenda, So great to hear from you! Yes, believe it or not, we live in Cambridge NY, which is considered upstate NY. Lots and lots of corn fields here! Cameron's family grows some corn and hay. They have about 10 cows, some chickens, 3 pigs, and 3 black Labs. (Cameron even says they don't have a farm, I say if they have cows and grow their own corn/hay, that's at least considered a small farm!) Cameron's uncle has a huge dairy farm in Cambridge too! They grown more corn than I could imagine! Pennie had her 12 week check up today! She is 18.8 pounds! The vet said that she cannot believe how fast she is growing and that although she gained 6.4 pounds in the last 2 weeks that it is healthy weight rather than too chubby. Pennie can now sit on command and she can play fetch (when she wants to!) Were still working on house training. She is VERY healthy!! She is such a good girl, we just love her so much! We are trying to teach her to chew on her toys/bones rather than our hands and feet, she is doing better with this! My friend from work Lena has a very well trained 4 year old Rottweiler named Archer that Pennie got the meet and play with this week, she loved him! Although she was only the size of his head, he was very gentle with her and played very nice! I am going to send along some more pictures! That's very neat that Pennie's sister lives in NY,NY now! That would be very neat to re-unite them! That's only about 3 hours from my house! Congratulations on your new litter of boxers as well! It was nice hearing from you! Hope you enjoy the pictures! I have so many pictures it's hard to chose which ones to send! We also had some engagement pictures taken this week that Pennie OF COURSE had to be in! I'll send some of those along too! Hope you enjoy them! P.S. The photo of Cam and Pennie walking with the sun in the background is my favorite, for some reason I think it just captures the bond between them! Feel free to use any of our pictures on your website! We should have lots more coming, the photographer took hundreds! Everywhere we go everyone always says how beautiful Pennie is and people cannot get enough of her! I think she's the cutest puppy ever, but I'm a little bias :) Jillian and Cameron and Pennie in New York
I just thought you'd want to know how she was adjusting to her new forever home. Lily was not happy and snubbed her, and us, for the first couple of days. After a few days of love and assurance, they are now great friends. Lily realized she now has a playmate and they run around the yard a lot. Lily chasing Kayla and vise versa, playing keep away with anything they find. Poor Kayla can't keep up yet though! Lol! It almost brought tears to my eyes to see them both so happy! But during the day, she is required to go outside and is getting pretty good at it and using the doggy door. Considering that the girls then go out and play! She now goes in her crate to take her naps (on her own). She already can sit and lie down on command (when calm and with little treats). Lily enjoys training time too because then she gets treats also. She also knows her name and generally comes when called. Thank you again for all your help. You guys did a great job on getting her ready for us! She is a great fit. I don't think anything else would have worked for our Lily. She is very shy and reserved. Kayla is the perfect mix of assertive (she doesn't back down from Lily - will even bark back) and gentle (she will roll on her back and give Lily her belly). I think Kayla is helping Lily with some of her insecurity's too. We had a lady (friend of my parents) come over the other night and Lily even said hi with kisses. In the past we would have been lucky if she just stopped barking! Like I said, I get tears seeing how much they enjoy each other. I was very concerned, especially the welcome Lily originally gave. Lily will always be our cute baby (after all, she is only about 42 lbs), but Kayla will be our beautiful girl.Already the neighbors adore her! Thanks again (to ALL of you),
Nicole (2016 Tanzy's Nursery) Wisconsin P. S.: I've already recommend you to other people who are looking at Rhodesians, Bulldogs and Boxers.
Hello and how are you? Sorry we have been so busy with AJ. She has been keeping us on our toes!! When she naps I find myself napping along with her haha. She is an angel and we are so happy with her. She sleeps a lot like babies do and my kids want to play with her all the time haha but I tell them that this is a way of her growing and becoming a big girl :) when she does wake up, she is a handful haha. We love our chubby girl! :) have a wonderful night. God bless, Christina :)
Just thought I would give you an update on Charlie. She is doing great loves people and pets, great temperament, loves walks and car rides. She's from Gizmo's and Pandora's litter, and she is gorgeous. We couldn't have asked for a better dog!! Justin from Oklahoma
Andy and I bought a puppy from Virginia's litter born June 29 this year. She is doing so well and is really fun to have around. We have had minimal issues with her and we attribute that to keeping her very busy! She comes to the office with me a few times a week and completed a 12 week puppy course just before thanksgiving. We start obedience 1 just after new years. Attached are a few pictures. Hope all is well with you and your family. Happy holidays!
Morgan is still very playful, which I love. I walk Morgan 4-6 times a day, she loves it. A little less when it is really hot out. She loves people, when she sees someone come toward her she crawls to them. She must have everyone she passes pet her. Most people cannot resist here cuteness. Well thank again and I will send more pictures in the future. Morgan is doing well everyone loves her. My two girls are doing well together. I attached a few recent pictures.
He's our little spoiled baby boy! He received his booster shot today so he's napping with his siblings right now. Beatriz from Penn. (Kia's Nursery 2017)
Achilles is doing awesome.. :) I have attached pictures I will send more soon! Brooke (This is a puppy from 12/2013 litter Pandora's)
Niko weighs 33 lbs. right now and he loves water! Every time I take him out, he jumps into the lake behind my house, haha!! He's a happy boxer, thank you soooo much, he has brought a lot of happiness into my life!
Sorry, i too busy, forgot to let you i already pick she up, and give she the new name is Angle, i love her Thanks ....
Keit from MD (Kia Nursery 2017)
Hi Brenda, We have some pictures of Alcide growing like a weed and wanted to update you on how awesome he has been and how he fits into our family perfectly! He knows quite a few tricks; sit, stay, lay down and shake! He comes to work with me a few days a week and my co workers love to hang out with him. Alcide and the "big dogs" love to play and run around and are best buds. Thank you once again for our perfect new addition to our family! Hope you & your family have a Merry Christmas & Happy New Years! Shane & Chantel
Just wanted to give you an update on the puppy! He is doing great and has adjusted to his new life perfect!! The surprise was perfect and I have never seen my husband so happy! Hy husband and his soldiers decided to name him Ham, dont ask me why but he seems to like it! He is already very spoiled and even more now since my husband has made it home! He also gets along great with our other dog, and the dog across the street! Everyone always says how handsome he is and how they want him!!I want to thank you for making this experience less stressful and very pleasent for me! I was very worried with all of the scams and you helped me with this! Thank you so much and we will keep you updated on Ham, I have also attached a couple of photos! Thank you so much!!
I just wanted to keep you up to date on our precious puppy. Sassy, who we changed her name to Nya, is doing great! She loves playing with her new sister and chewing on toys. She is doing well with potty training and adjusting to crate training. It was tough at first because she cried a lot but now she enjoys laying in her crate on her comfy sheets. She loves to be outside and sunbathe in the Las Vegas heat! Nya is a sweet dog; she loves all people and other dogs. She is a great addition to our family. Attached are some pictures. She gets bigger with each day!
Brenda, Attached are some recent pictures of Ford. He is getting so big and is such an amazing dog! We love him very much, thank you again for everything and hopefully you are able to find a friend for Ford as well. Call me when you can. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brenda, You are going to have another litter of boxers soon, Oh that makes me so happy!! We Definitely want another boxer and can't wait!! I've attached some pictures below of Ford (our boxer boy that was purchased from Myrealfarm a few years ago)! Ford needs a Buddy. Needless to say he is still an amazing dog and wonderful with kids too!:) thanks again and I will send more photos as I come across them! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was just looking over the site and thought I would drop in a hello, and a thank you. Ford is the best dog I could have ever asked for. He is so happy, loving and has the best personality. Everyone loves him to pieces, and each day he is getting bigger and more handsome. Ford and I have become the bestest of friends he is like my little kid. he comes to work with me every single day and all the customers love him. Its hard to believe how big he is getting, each day he does something new and funny it seems. Thank You again!
Stephanie from Alaska
Hi Brenda, As you probably know, today is Mya's 1st Birthday so we are celebrating with a special cake. She is such a fantastic dog and we love her dearly!! I just wanted to update you and thanks again for raising such beautiful puppies. :) Have a great day! Carissa (Tanzy's Nursery 3/2014)
Brenda, Dozer (short for Bulldozer) is doing really well. He is very healthy and everybody just loves him!!! He gets so many compliments. He is incredibly lovable. And, boy, is he smart! He knew to go potty outside. I set up his own little play area which is gated all around so I can leave him with all his necessities. He has his water, toys, crate, bed, and piddle pad. He went potty on his piddle pad the very first time I left him! I put an old sweatshirt with my scent in his crate and he goes in there by choice! I'm feeding him an organic brand of food called, Buffalo Blue. I weaned him on it and he's doing just fine with it. I've taken lots of pictures. As soon as I get a break I'll send you some. He's such a happy little guy. He's not the least bit shy and goes up to everyone. He's especially friendly with other dogs. :-) Hope all is well. I referred you to someone I met because this has been a great experience for me (I hope that's okay!!!)! Thanks, again! Hope all is well!
Hi Brenda and Chris,
You might remember me, I am Judit, whose wedding present was one of your ridgeback puppies. She was born today a year ago in Belle’s litter. My husband and I would like to say thank you for being such responsible breeders and giving us the opportunity to have the ownership of our precious dog, Kira.
She has changed our lives, brings us so much joy and she is an inseparable member of the family. She is our pride and we do everything to keep her happy. She is a real joy to live with as she responds to household routines very well. We take the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, a high quality life for her. She is a fun lover, and has good manners in the presence of people and other dogs. We often arrange play dates for her as she is everybody’s friend.
Thank you again for the great job you did when she was a puppy.
Judit & Geza
Hello, Bo is the most wonderful dog in the world! He is almost 6 months old and he is 55 lbs, a very big boy. He is absolutely wonderful with our son and is so smart too. He knows how to sit, stay, lay down, shake, high five, and come on call using only hand signals. Thank you so much for him, here are some new pictures. The Ireland Family
I see you have my handsome puppy “Belle’s Pistol Packing Charmer” aka Gunnar on your home page. AWESOME! He was only five months when that shot was taken. I have been trying to reach you to let you know how wonderful he is doing in SAR (search and rescue). He is a trailing dog, which means he can follow the trail of a distinct scent. Even discriminating the scent on one individual out of several that take off walking together then split the trail. He has been impressing all handlers he meets. Gunnar does not know a stranger, we were asked to be in the Meet the Breed at an AKC show here in Des Moines, and he was such a charmer. Gunnar is almost ten months now. I would like to send more pics. He is my fourth RR and I have to tell you I have known many RR’s throughout the years. He is hands down the most handsome boy I have seen. Would you like more updated pics of him? I love to brag about him. ____________________ Here are some more pictures, isn't he stunning! ____________________ Gunnar and I were in Texas for a Man hunters trailing seminar. He did absolutely awesome! I traveled down with two other gals fromWisconsin. He was taking scent from a zip lock bag with nothing more than the subjects breath or just sticking their hand into the back then closing it. Most trails were at least 1/2 mile long and aged from one hour to three hours old.
Thanks, Cheri Rhodesian Ridgeback, Gunnar
Lala loves my male dalmatian, later I'll get one with her standing next to him! Miranda from NY
Hello Wyricks, I wanted to give you an update on Lyric. She has ajusted well and is an amazing dog! She has already doubled in size and is going to be more of a pony than a puppy... sean has made it safely from Afghanistan but is not yet able to leave Fort Bragg in North Carolina so last weekend I packed up the birdie and Lyric and drove down to visit him. I think he was more excited to see Lyric than me lol! We had a wonderful weekend and he adores her although she is way too big to be a lap dog, she's yet to establish this. I just wanted to let you guys know she is doing awsome. She goes everywhere I go with the exception of work and has takin a liking to the car and the word bye bye. She hates being left home alone and she's a spoiled brat lol! Sean gets back in two days and she lights up his smile so I'm very excited. I only got a couple of not so good photos on our trip to North Carolina but I thought I would send them anyway. Sean is a professional photographer so I will send some good ones of just her when she is half grown and a few when she is full grown in case you would like them for your website. Thanks again, The Conleys
Chris, Brenda and Children, Sending you photo's of Bella Rose on her first Birthday. . . Christine
Hello Brenda, We just left our daughter’s home (Tracie and David) and we had to send this to compliment you. We met their puppy today and he is a beautiful puppy with a personality that shines, a temperament that shows great breeding, and you can see from first impression he is intelligent, friendly, and well adjusted. To meet a puppy that just left its familiar surroundings; was crated; took an airplane flight, and took to his new surroundings as well as he did; well it doesn’t happen by accident, and shows he was well treated, and is a confident animal, and came from a loving environment. He makes eye contact, listens, and was extremely gentle, playful, and a pleasure to be around. My wife and I fell in love with the breed and have had Ridgebacks since 1991. Our children were raised with these gentle, obedient, protective family members and I was pleased to see Tracie, and David lucked out when purchasing their first pup. I cannot say enough about this puppy's personality, his confidence, attentiveness, and from first impressions their success in getting a great dog that will provide many years of pleasure owning and having such a great companion. I have attached a picture of our Jake, who is the 4th Ridgeback we have owned. The other 3 (Chance, Sydney, Bullet) provided us with 12,14,12 years of loyal friendship, companionship, and who only the IRS didn’t consider them members of the family. When you hear so much about puppy mills, have reservations about not seeing the parents personally, and take this kind of chance acquiring a member of your family; well I appreciate breeders like yourself and it shows that you put your heart and souls into the breeding of such fine dogs, the Ridgeback breed is something to be admired, and we take personally the raising of these fine animals. Thank you, we are glad our children contacted you, received a great puppy, and we can assure you that Bradley will be well taken care of, loved, and be a member of the family. Mike& Diane
Brenda, I wanted to give you your update on Tobi, now that he is a little over a year and a half old--(wow). You know, since we first got him, he has gotten SO many compliments on how beautiful he is. He still is. He has a wonderful, laid-back personality, not high-strung at all, and he is extremely friendly and loving. Just like a Bulldog, he is so naturally curious and wants to always see "what's up", and he's never met a stranger!! He definitely still has a lot of pup in him though. He for sure does not just lay around like a lazy bum-he ALWAYS wants to play!! But, he does listen very well. He now weighs a little over 55 lbs, so I look for him to gain maybe about 5-10 more before he turns two. He has had an excellent health record!
I just want to say thank you for our beautiful boy. He has been a wonderful, fun companion. I have recommended you all to many many people as we have gotten tons of compliments on Tobi. Hope you enjoy many more successful litters! Thanks again. Lara, North Carolina English Bulldog, Tobi
Hello from Wisconsin,
I promised a few pictures of Cookie and here are a few. Actually her name is now Piper.
Piper has grown a couple inches already and now weighs 30 pounds, at 3 months 5 days old. The dogs are getting along great now after a few days of getting acquainted. Piper and Sally are becoming best friends and Piper is starting to get brave enough to play with Lucy (might be the size difference of the fact that Lucy plays a little rough for Piper's taste).
Training is going well and there's been a lot of it, what with housebreaking, crate training, and leash training. Piper knows her name and comes when called or whistled at. She understands no (or I like to use "HEY"). For a while we were big on the "no bite" command, and for the most part has stopped nipping/chewing on people and focuses on her toys instead. We are working or sit, stay, and off (when she tries jumping up). She knows "go outside" and "go potty" and "in the house", based on watching/following the older dogs' example. Walks around the block will start once she heals better while on the leash. But she enjoys rides in the truck to see where we will visit next.
I'll try sending more pictures soon, -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hi Brenda, Sorry it has taken me so long to update you on the new puppy and Piper. We finally decided on a name, Ryder. It took us awhile because we were trying to figure out his personality. At first Piper was not a fan of her little brother. She has warmed up to him and they play often. At times Piper is done and wants to chill but little Ryder has not figured that out yet. I will send you a few pictures of the two. We are under another snow storm and the puppy is not a fan of going outside frequently to go to the bathroom:-( Matt and Heather from Virginia (Piper from Myrealfarm in: 2011 and Ryder from Myrealfarm in: 2014)
Hi Brenda, It was great to hear from you! I am so glad that you wanted to know how Moose was doing! He is an excellent dog with a sweet disposition. He gets along with our other two bulldogs, Phaddy and Fiona, fantastically. We have found that he is the most cuddly, loving dog we have ever had. Thanks for such an amazing dog!!! Andrea
Brutus is doing great! He is 9 months old and 100 pounds.
Rya is doing great!! She is full of energy and just wants to play. She is very good with our new baby. He chases her around in his walker. Thanks for checking on her. We are very happy with her!!
Veronica and Robert Boxer (Rya)
Brenda, Marek at about 5 mo. His first time playing in water. He is by far the sweetest dog I've ever had or been around. He's always gotta know where are and searches until he finds you. He is still growing like a weed. We have been working on self control as well. He sits and waits as long as you want until you tell him it's ok to eat his food.
Adam Packer (12/2013 litter: Pandora)
Brenda, "Doesn't she look great! Kitty is beautiful!" Thanks, Christina from Missouri Boxer (Kitty)
Hi Brenda, (Tanzy Nursery 5/2013) As you know Uma turned 1 last week and I just wanted you to know how much we love and cherish her. She is absolutely the best dog I have ever had. She is extremely smart, very playful, full of energy, and loves to go and go. I am sending you a couple of pictures of her so you can see how she has grown. Thank you so much for giving me such a great puppy! Uma still has her rag and loves to lay on it. David
Brenda, Just to see my son's smile after getting his pup was enough to make the 13 hour trip all the way from Pennsylvania to get "Mack" worthwhile! I looked for weeks to find him the perfect pup, then my son looked for two more weeks. Three days before Christmas he saw your pup and said, "That's the one! I want that one!" William from Pennsylvania English Bulldog (Mack)
Hi Brenda, (Chelsea litter 7/2012) I just wanted to share some pictures of our sweet Chelsea! She will be 2 in July already! She is the sweetest thing ever, and has goofy and playful personality! She loves to play with her brother Riley, and goes running with me. She hasn't understood yet that a 95 pound dog is too big for someone's lap! She just likes to be close to you to give kisses! Here are some of her "baby" pics! We love our fur baby Chelsea so much! She is so expressive! She tilts her head from side to side when you talk to her like she totally understands what you are saying! As you can hopefully tell, she is a happy and beautiful (and spoiled!) fur baby! We are moving to Texas this summer and will be living on a lake, we are really looking forward to being able to take the dogs on the boat with us on a regular basis! They love to swim and ride in the boat! Thank you so much for all the time love and effort you put in to socializing your puppies! Jen and Matt
Brenda, He had a tough act to follow, but he did pretty good.
Mike and Michelle
Took this one just last night ... Today they're learning to roll over. This time Bo is faster than Bella learning that trick. They're heeling better on the leash and they are almost sleeping through the night without having to go outside... So far 6 hours straight... Yay!!!! Hope all is well! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Dear Brenda, It's been almost a week since we've purchased Bo and Bella. I just wanted to give you an update. They are absolutely wonderful!!! Bella is a lot faster on the learning curve than Bo, but when he sees her getting treats for certain tasks, he's eager to learn as well. So far they know sit, stay, come, lie down, drop it, heel, and today (knock on wood) is the first day without any potty accidents in the house. I have to give a big big thanks to you for the idea of bells at the door . . . genius!!! They've gotten their second round of vaccines and initial puppy visit to the vet and she said they are in great shape. They do pretty well off the leash in our front and back yard, but I haven't had that much external stimuli to challenge them with. Bella ran towards my neighbor when she saw him, but came back after I called her a couple of times. Everyone is commenting on how adorable and gorgeous they are. It's really cute to see them snuggle with Paige (our 10 yr old golden/lab). It's even cuter to see them try to play wrestle with her. Hope all is well, I'll try to keep you posted on their progress as time goes on. Please let your daughters and Virginia know that we are doing our best to take care of her pups and that they are doing well.
As you can see our Groenendale Shepherd ADORES Oliver! They are best buddies besides Bo and Bella. Oliver is now 25 lbs and is ringing the bells to go outside. He is by far the BEST snuggler out of the 4 dogs😀 We love him tons!! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and hope you have a Merry Christmas! I have to tell you a story about Bella... She saved Gabriel's hand. One night about 2 AM, I heard her whining in the hallway. Naturally I thought she had to go outside, but when I got up out of bed to let her out she stopped in front of Gabriel's room and sat down. I said "What's wrong girl?" Then she whined again and went into his room. Well, when I followed her into his room, she laid down beside him on his bedroom floor. Now Gabriel is 3yrs old and likes to play with the drapes on his window. At first I thought it was cute that she was snuggling with him, but then I noticed that the bottom edge of the drape had frayed and the strings from it were wrapped so tightly around his wrist that I had to get a pair of scissors to cut them off. I'm surprised he slept through it, his hand was pale and cool, there was obviously compromised blood flow to his hand. Bella saved him that night. I DON'T EVEN want to think about what would have happened had she not alerted me to that problem. We are truly blessed to have these puppies in our lives. Truly thankful that you are in the business of breeding life savers. Quite honestly "the perfect dog."

Brenda, We named her Barbara Ann. But we call her Bobbi for short. We named her after my Aunt that passed away a little over a year ago. My aunt was mentally handicapped but the most amazing person I have ever known. She loved everyone. There was never a person that she did not like. And she always had a smile on her face. Now that we have gotten to know our new puppy, I can tell that we choose the perfect name for her. She loves everyone just like my aunt did. We haven't had any snow since we got her until yesterday. I was kind of nervous to see how she would react to the snow, but she really seems to like it. Of course we only let her out to go potty and then she comes right back in. But I think if we would let her, she would like to stay out and play in it. That of course won't happen. I'm trying to talk my husband into letting me get her some booties and a coat. Thanks again for everything. We will keep you updated and send you pictures of our baby girl. New Adoptive parents: Mickey and Susan from Nebraska
Brenda, "She made it! She was sooo excited to see us. When we said her name she started barking. She came home and started playing with my son. My son is 3 & is having a ball with Bella. I received her shot record and goodies." Thanks, Brandy in Illinois Boxer (Bella)
Thank you! We named him Bane after Batman. Oh My Goodness: Bane is soooooooo amazing ...he fits in perfectly into our home he is a sweetheart truly is we love him we will be staying in touch. I have raised puppies so I know it's hard when they leave so I will be sending you plenty of pictures! We made burgers, so Bane had to have one too! Nicole from Florida
Brenda, I got the puppy and took him right to the vet. The vet said he is in great health! My family and I love him! Thank you Brenda. Again, you have been wonderful and have made this experience very pleasant."

Hi Brenda, Stryker is doing awesome! He is already house trained and we couldn't be happier! He is full of energy and love! I attached some pictures of him and my girls. Eric from California
Brenda, "Bronx is absolutely fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better temperament. He has been love and kisses since we picked him up from the airport in March and has been a total joy to have as part of the family. Thanks so much for an amazing dog!
Dear Brenda, Hello! from Wisconsin. We are so happy with both the pup's. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put in with them , we are enjoying the benefits of your hard work. Remington weighs 34 pounds and Beasley weighs 30 pounds. Remington is even tempered and a bit stubborn, she HATES to get wet in the rain! Beasley is more "emotional" for lack of a better word, happy to see you sad to see you leave. They started puppy class this past Monday, they had a good head start on the other pups and catch on really quick. Both love to snuggle at the end of the day with us and each other. I've been looking at the video of Tanzy's pups they are beautiful. Newest update:The pups are doing great! They are so good. They adjust well to whatever is going on or changes. We leave tomorrow for a week at the lake and hope they will learn to like water! No rides on the jet ski tho. Remington is much bigger she is still very quiet and calm. Beasley loves to play and have fun. They look like grown dogs Remington usually looks serious, and Beasley can still get a baby expression. They did well in puppy class, they like people better than other dogs. A lady in class had a Austrilan Shepherd who wanted to "herd" the other pups ours didn't like that. We are so happy with the pups and can only thank you for all their good qualities!
Jeff and Becky from Wisconsin
Thanks so much for Peaches and Princess. You were so good to take your time to answer all our questions and see us through until we got them. What a joy to see them at the airport! They were happy to be off that plane and into our arms! My Real Farm is amazing! Thanks again! Will send more pictures later! Lydia and John in New Hampshire
English Bulldogs (Peaches And Princess)
As you can see, Bonnie has added a great deal of fun and love to our lives. Our daughter lives in Massachusetts (a Professor at Harvard) with her 3 boys, and our son in Seattle (a Professor at U. of Washington), with his new baby, so it gets lonely around here. But Bonnie fills much of the gap for us. I hear my husband speaking "baby talk" to her when he thinks I'm out of earshot. And I am crazy about her. Brenda, I admire you for being able to do "home schooling." I don't think I would have the patience. I am a retired Social Worker (worked mainly with Senior Citizens), and my husband is a retired Mathematician/Physicist/Geneticist, and currently a working professional trombone player. Thanks again for the photos, and a special thanks for Bonnie. She is truly a joy. Fondly, Lila P.S. Did I tell you that Bonnie went to puppy school in May and June? She passed everything very well and received good grades. Also, Mike and I take her to a dog park about twice a week--she loves to play with other dogs and is friendly to them (even dogs twice her size), but is totally fearless and fun-loving. She's popular--when we come to the dog park we hear people say "Here comes Bonnie!" She really livens up the place. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here are 2 recent photos of our Bonnie from (2014) this year. She is 7 1/2. I don't remember whether I sent these to you already. And I hope they come through--with my messy computer skills.
The first one was taken by our eldest grandson, William, on our nearby hill. William, is a senior at Harvard U. and lives in the Boston area, but visits us pretty often. He is the eldest of our 5 grandsons.
The second photo is of Bonnie and me, sitting in our garden, with our 2 cats (Sophie and Tassel--both 15) who are mooching into the photo. My husband Mike took that one.
Good luck with all your puppies.
And thank you again for Bonnie, who is so sweet, loving, and smart. We need to spell many words, but she's learning how to spell. And she takes her self imposed "work" seriously. Beware the squirrel or raccoons who wander into our garden. She also doesn't favor gophers.
Brenda, Just wanted to let you know that I decided to name the dog “Roxsy”, after the movie “Rocky.” I just wanted to thank you very much for all your help in making my Christmas so wonderful. Hope you are having a great holiday season and take care.
Brenda, Marek is doing great and getting bigger seems like everyday!! He's a nutball, very humorous and very affectionate. He wants to be near you constantly! He is getting better with the snow. Fought and fought to not go outside to potty (because the cold). He's been on a few " puppy dates" with my co workers dogs and could play for hours! He is in love with terrorizing the cat as well.
Brenda, Hi, I wanted to let you know that we took Lola to the vet today for the first time and she is 12 1/2 pounds, and they said she looks great! Here are some pictures of her now. Thanks for the wonderful new family member, we all love her! ""Everyone is in love with our dogs, they attract a lot of attention on walks and everyone wants to know about their breeders, so you must have done a good job!"

Hi Brenda, I just want to give you an update on Ruthie. She is doing wonderful! We love her so much. She is getting along great with our little Frenchie, Sampson. We pretty much have her potty-trained and she is doing much better when we put her in her crate; which isn't too often, because Darin works from home. We will send more pictures as she continues to grow! Adoptive parents in Republic, MO.
Brenda, Just wanted to let you know that Seamus arrived fine here in NJ and is settling into his new home. We also took him to the vet and she said that he looks good! He is enjoying his new brother and sister cats. Floyd, the male kitten really likes playing with him, Zoey wants nothing to do with him! Alright thank you very much! Seamus has adapted well to us and we just love him. Thank you so much for everything. I know I asked you a ton of questions, but you but you were always very kind and answered everything, no matter how silly. Thank you again. I will update you again to let you know how Seamus is doing.

Brenda, Our puppy is doing great! Still haven’t named her, my husband has been gone on a trip and will be returning today, he wanted me to wait for him. She is such a sweet girl, very loving, and smart. I couldn’t be happier! She is sleeping, eating well, and getting along with our other dog, whom Im surprised wasn’t too grumpy about the new situation. New Adoptive parent: Whitney in California
Brenda, Just wanted to pop you a quick note to say thank you! It was really great doing business with you and Captain is making a really smooth transition into the family- he's starting to get the whole potty thing down, but of course still prefers my shoes to any of the chewy things we bought for him. I am attaching a picture of Captain with the kids, I'm sure you have been wondering how he is doing.
I wanted to email and send you a picture of Captain, he is getting so big! I think he is hitting the teen years. We are now trying to leash train him so that we can get him out walking. He has turned out to be a GREAT addition to our family. I don't know what life would be like now without him, though he is totally spoiled and sleeps with us every night.
Well thought I'd just give you an update! Thanks again for the great pup!
Rex is doing great. He has been absolutely wonderful!! My roomie and I took the dogs swimming today up at Lake Barkley and they loved it. Roxy was a little timid. Rex has really helped boost Roxy's confidence level as she is a little jumpy but since he came home she has been nothing but confident. He didn't take long at all to potty train. He is very good with obedience as well. The cat has taken a particular liking to him and when he isn't chasing her around she is chasing him.
Thanks for the perfect Boxer!!
Hello! We thought it was time for some updated pictures of Mylie. She is definitely a puppy doing all the normal behavior of a puppy. She is a very sweet girl. We love her so much. She is so very gentle with all the kids. As you can see in the pictures she likes to fight Jenna for toys. Those two are always playing with each others toys. I hope everyone is doing well.

Brenda, Just wanted to let you know Brutus had his vet checkup today! She loved him, said he was a beautiful well bred boy. So I thank you so much for that, she said so many breeders are making them look almost un boxer like and he is a great example of what a Boxer should be. So that made us very happy!! He is already 15lbs!
