Popeye is really the smartest OES I have ever had. He is growing by leaps and bounds. He has learned to come and sit. Recently he started barking and it turned out that there was a moose right outside the door. He was pretty excited about it and seemed to know it was not a big dog. - Roger & Marcia, Alaska

Daisy May

Daisy May
Daisy May loves to stay out side all day..rain, snow and then she jumps up on her sofa and takes a nap. She likes to be the boss around here and sometimes we let her win. We can't wait to see her go in the pool on a hot day. - Debbie


Pippa has always been a delightfully curious and playful part of our family. Each time Pippa encounters a pile of leaves, her smile beams like a spotlight. She frolicks and leaps and finds the greatest pleasure in the crunching sound and crisp smells of autum. - Anna, Livonia MI


Nigel is the most adorable, happy puppy you could possibly imagine. He is just so beautiful in appearance and character. I swear he is smiling all the time! And his face melts you heart. As I sit here writing this he is curled up behind me in contented sleep. - Judy, Northville MI
