Holden Squeaker Update

Good Morning to all!

Toby shares this update about Holden Squeaker:

"Holden continues to be a smart, charming, happy puppy, winning friends and influencing people everywhere he goes.  He's totally a part of the family now, human, canine, feline and avian!  He sleeps well through the night, eats like a champ and as of Friday, weighed 19.4 lbs, so that's almost 6 lbs since his first weigh in in Montana.  He's doing a wonderful sit, a mostly wonderful down, does "touch" like he's been doing it for years and has an amazing recall, all of which I totally thank M-A for the head start!  We're going to enjoy a day off today before back to the work grind tomorrow, but then we're only working 2 days this week :)  We have some redecorating to do, as he's already too big for his bedtime crate!  Also have to contact AKC as they have his registered name as Kaibab's Holden on Th The Moon.  Doesn't anyone actually read the applications?!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas filled with happiness, family, friends and PLUMPIES!"

This is Holden with his grandma -- isn't this a great picture???

Toby and Holden

And what the heck -- let's just run through the generations -- here is Toby's son, Matthew, giving Holden a Christmas present...

Matthew and Holden again....

And when you see Holden next to a greyhound he doesn't seem so big, does he?

Thanks so much to Toby for the excellent update -- and to all plumpie owners, who are doing a wonderful job keeping us all informed about our cute H Litter babies :)

6:30 pm  SPECIAL DELIVERY!

One of our Utah kids, Tanner, arrived with a VERY special delivery from Elizabethanne:

Yes indeed -- a fancy, custom-made, lined coat so Mrs. Maize can spend some time outside without freezing :) Thank you SO much, Elizabethanne -- it is perfect!!!!! And love the matching accessory for me :) Doesn't Maize look great in her new coat?????!!!

Mrs. Maize was very excited to see Tanner -- she doesn't look excited, but she really was...

And this is from earlier -- Karma trying to butter up the newest member of the family...

The local invalids are both doing okay. Dear Husband, with his lungs filled with little clots, is quite short of breath with any exertion, which he has yet to discover might be very convenient -- after all, he cannot be expected to help around the house, can he??!! And Mrs. Maize has stepped back a wee bit from the brink of death -- thank goodness for prednisone. Quite an interesting holiday around here, I must say...

How lovely to meet Holden's family and seeing him cuddled and loved! Thank you for the beautiful photos and the update! That goes to all the plumpie families, too! REALLY appreciate the time and generosity of all the new owners sharing their love and joy with all of us who take such pleasure watching these beautiful pups grow!

Mary-Ann, I hope Dear Hubby is doing better and sweet Mrs. Maize too. Continuing to keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers this holiday season...
