Thank you


I just wanted to drop you a line and express my sincerest thanks for your
pick on a great dog. I am not sure is everyone is as happy with a puppy
purchased sight unseen, but your choice is exceptional. Gina and I have
named her Rio. I will drop you a line occasionally to let you know how she
is doing.

P.S. We took her over to Warren and Linda's house to meet their dog
Jura (Rogue and Arrow are his parents too) and they loved to play together.

Kim,
Just wanted to give you an update on the pup. The little guy is doing great. He is almost house trained already and has learned several commands of daily life.When I say learned, I mean that he knows what to do but it sometimes take more than once or twice giving him the command. He is very persistent and intent when he has his motor going. His ears are trying to stand now. He is quite comical at times in his expressions. His interest in everything keeps the ears well execised. I have noticed that, not only does he smell everything, he likes to taste most things as well. I have to say that he does tend to bite everything when he is playing. Not so much on humans but everything else. He responds well to all toys so far but does not limit the mouthing of other things. Most of this seems to be the joys of being a puppy. He reminds me alot of a pitbulldog puppy. He has a tremendous amount of energy whenever he is awake. This is very good for longer attention spans as young adults. Not so good trying to keep up with them but the enjoyment out weighs the hassle.

I vaccinated and wormed him but have not had to use any flea treatment yet. He seems to stay real clean but I hardly ever notice him grooming. His coat is lovely, shiny and rich. People comment on his coat as often as on his eyes. He has started several conversations already and has several friends in the local drive-thrus,the bank,Sonic,Mcdonalds,etc.My first month spent with this wonderful little guy will not be forgotten in the years to come. I want to thank you again for your want of producing a sound animal. As well as your willingness to help us and our nation. Maybe the people can once again learn something from a Native American.
Sincerely,
Don Gardner Ark., Drug & Bomb Dog Training Center

Hi to everyone in the group,
I just had to tell you all, that if your dogs are like Sinjo,now I know how you all feel about them. Everything that has been said about them is all very true. I was just in N.Y. with David,& may I tell you that I had dogs all my life and I can't say that at 8 months any was as smart,sweet,funny,well behaved and a very good companion, as Sinjo is. I know David has sent you e-mail telling all about our day at that Canine Companion open house.Well there had to be over 100 or more dogs there,all pretty well behaved, good looking happy dogs. But I will bet you my house that there was not one dog there that got as much -praise as Sinjo---------
(1)"Oh my God, look at that dog!
(2) What beautiful eyes.
(3) What a beautiful dog.
(4) He is so well behaved
I don't think that we were able to walk no more then 2 minutes before someone would stop us to ask David something or tell him something that made Dave feel so good. Well, you know that David has worked very hard and long with his friend. But I must tell you all something that David is not telling anyone--------that dog "LOVES me" too. Sinjo would set in front of the door so I could not leave.---" Sorry David" but I loved it. Too long I know but I'm happy that David has Sinjo as a good friend, and I'm just a proud grandmother again. bye to all

Hi Everybody,

We¹re new to the group as well, no expert, but have lived with our AID puppy for almost 3 months..She¹s very puppy like in most regards: chews the table, chews her chews, chews our 4 year old mix, stares down the cat (as if <g>), romps outside, then just falls asleep like a narcoleptic! Loves to run up in the submissive slouch to dogs of every size and people. What differentiates her is the sensitivity that everyone mentions. It's so true, when there is a
problem or trouble she never adds to it! She seems to instinctively know when she¹s got to just relax, sit down and wait for party time again. It took traveling with her to see it clearly. When we were stuck with the car for hours she just sat down with the other dog and didn't start barking and freaking from being restrained (which would be typical puppy behavior, I've had goldens and setters my whole life, very sweet but not site specific sensitive). When we went to National forest park, when we were going on the trails she was always in eye sight, but coming back she'd run way back up the trail then come right back to make sure we were coming, and always when she was called. She was just a pleasure. Didn't eat the car or any hotel rooms or my mom's house. Even at the park near our house, it's a small informal dog run without fences, and she always stays right around without taking off, officially greeting every new dog. As someone in the group mentioned the Snow Dogs movie and how huskies will be the rage. I haven't seen a husky that can just chill out and be off the leash without having to take off, they just don't seem to make good city pets at all ( I'm sure there are exceptions, but I haven't met one). My fear that the AID would be akin to this personality was totally alleviated when we saw she didn¹t need to roam. She needs good exercise, but will readily adhere to our parameters.

She likes to sleep where ever she plops down, and has a big teddy bear we gave her I thought she'd chew up, and that's her little pal, she takes her toys to go lay next to the bear. She's got such a softy side that compliments her gutsy disposition. These are truly amazing animals and like most, respond to guidance and constant positive reinforcement. We've never used our hands in any punishment for our dogs they seem to know when they are being bad, there's a certain turkey carcass incident, that proved if we ignored them that would be the worst punishment ­ and it was! They were so happy to be back in good graces, it made me feel bad (ah, guilt an effective tool). She's pretty quiet for all the noises in our neighborhood, she's not a barker, sometimes there's a little howl like a piccolo sound, or a humming when she wants something, and she brings her food bowl into the living room
when it's empty! So cute. Sorry this is so long, but she's such a fascinating little lady it¹s hard to keep it short.
Your friends,
Denise & Ed LaBue, UT,
West central A.I.Dog area Rep
