Hello, Antje!
I am having a birthday today and thought I would write to tell you what I have been up to.

I am still small but I am strong and mighty.  I weigh 4 lbs, 5 ozs and I am healthy and VERY playful.  My favorite foods are raw chicken hearts, cheese bits, chicken tenderloins, lettuce ribs, carrots, and apples.  I still eat three times a day, but breakfast is my biggest meal and I sit on the kitchen rug and watch mom make it for me. 

I love to take mom and dad on walks and chasing a ball is my favorite game…..I am super-fast and I can jump and catch them in the air!  I don’t really like to give them back, but prefer to play tug-of-war.   I do have A LOT of balls because I like to hide them so I get new ones often.  I also love toys that squeak when I bite them!  When I’m tired I have a pink princess pillow in front of the heater where I play with my toys.  Sometimes I take a nap there, but mostly I like to nap on mom or dad’s lap or around their necks…..that’s my favorite spot.  I do like to snuggle!

We go places in the car almost every day.  I love the wind in my face!  Sometimes when we are going slow mom lets me have the window down.  She holds me tight and I have some “Doggles” to wear so that I protect my eyes.    My favorite places to go are Petco and Lowe’s and Home Depot because they like dogs in their stores.  Everyone wants to know what kind of dog I am and they tell me I’m beautiful.  I get lots of pets but my favorite people are the little kids.  I always give them kisses and let them pet my head.

I am a good helper so mom gave me my own chores to help out. 
  • I am in charge of all of the dirty socks on laundry day,
  • I jump in the laundry basket so the clean laundry doesn’t fall out,
  • I am in charge of finding the dryer sheet (I am really good at this chore),
  • I shred any loose papers that fall on the floor or stick out of the garbage cans so they are easier to recycle,
  • I follow mom everywhere so she doesn’t get lost.

I am sending some pictures too.  I hope you and my papillon family are doing well.  We watch for new pictures on your website and enjoy reading about what you are all up to.

Thank you for giving me a healthy life and for letting me come live with mom and dad.  Happy Birthday to me!


Seme is doing so well.  She is a confident, bright, happy little soul.  She has brought us much joy and is such a sweet girl.  We are grateful to you for her!

Wishing you a wonderful new year,
Doug and Sherl
