Another Testimonial Tuesday for the books! This update comes from Jill who adopted one of our Miniature/Medium retired Breeding Females, Lil Black Dress.

“Lil is a truly wonderful girl. She has just enough “trouble” in her to make her fun. Thanks for adding so much fun into my life. I really love this little girl.”

Thank you so much for the update on Lil, we’re so happy she went to a forever home that will give her all the attention, spoiling, and relaxation she deserves.

Thank you Tammy for your wonderful update on Hazel!

“I thought I would send this silly pic of Hazel to you!! I think she was trying to tell me she wanted more food!! She climbed on the step stool and stood on top of her food container!!

We love her so much she is such a good puppy!! We have taught her already to ring the Poochie bells when she has to go out to potty!!”

Testimonial Wednesday?

December 16th, 2015

We’ve received an update on Presley who is just too cute not to share!

“We brought home our puppy about a month ago and I already feel the need to tell about how amazing it has been! First of all, we felt so comfortable before picking up Presley because of how helpful the women at Manor Lake were. They sent plenty of pictures and answered all of our questions about our puppy-to-be. I was in love the instant I laid eyes on Presley and he was everything they had described him to be and more.

Since then I have just come to adore our new furry friend. He is so smart, training has been a breeze so far. He has a personality that almost resembles a human, and picks up on everything already. Presley is full of energy, but not to the amount that could drive someone crazy. He is almost four months old and I am still waiting for the period where most dog owners never wish to return to!

Kim and Charrice really know how to run an ethical business and have shown me that their customers’ happiness is their priority. I get asked almost every day where I got my dog and I always get Manor Lake’s name out there.

I could not be happier with my dog, he is already my most loyal companion and he is such a light in my life. His personality is one of a kind and I think that is so important for dog owners. I wouldn’t change a thing from this whole process for the world!”

We just received an update on Zoobie! We are so very thankful when we hear from Manor Lake families with news and updates on our dogs. To see how they have grown from adorable puppies to magnificent adults is one of the many reasons we share thanks this week and every day of the year.

“Hope you are well!!! Zoobie and I moved to SF 2 years ago and are loving it. Her mom was petunia and dad was Mozart. My friends the ellisons adopted Digger from you, the Harts got Chowder, Allison in SF got Teddy, and now an acquaintance, Lina, is moving from the UK to NYC and wants to get a puppy like Zoobie from you! She will be emailing you soon, so please help her understand the whole process. I know she’d love a pup that looks like Zoobie.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

Katherine and Zoobie

Here’s an Update we just received from The Hansen Family on Willow, their 15 week old puppy from a Dalton + Clifford Pairing.

“We just love her spirited personality. She wants to be with us all the time and loves to play with Grady. They are getting along and she is learning from him. It was amazing how she learned to potty train from him. She watches everything he does and follows along, although she is not shy about getting her needs met :-)
Just like Grady, Willow is smart and trains so easily….she was housebroken in about a week and has learned to sit, lay down and come. She is social, happy and healthy. We are also taken with her beauty. Her coat and color are stunning. We are thankful for the love and care that goes into all of the dogs in your program.”

Oops, a day late, but better late than never right? We always love to hear feedback from our families about how their new and old 4-legged family members are doing. Here’s some pictures and a letter we received from one of our families:

“Thought I’d share with you how our Buddy is growing big and beautiful and has given our Black Lab Jake the friend he thought he’d never get! His chocolate coat really is so rich and beautiful! Thank you helping us bring this amazing smart boy into our families lives!”
