The new addition to Kyle’s pack

Posted in Miscellaneous on March 11, 2014 by kwdogs

A month ago we added another Llewellin to our family— her name is Omiimii which means Dove in Ojibwe the native tribe of the U.P. of Michigan. She’s a darling full of life and joy. You can always check out our Paint River Llewellin site for all things Llewellins.

Holiday nap

As Christmas is upon us, our pack is preparing for the howlidays with the pups!! Lots going on and to celebrate this season— our acquisition of land in the U.P. of Michigan, the addition on the house, our lovely Llewellins that have come to us, our two litters of pups (we still have some pups available if anyone is looking for great active family dogs!!) and a new truck too (yay)!!

Here’s a photo of some of the kids after we rearranged the living room a bit for the Christmas tree. I don’t know how you use a futon in your home but this is how it gets used in ours :)

Remembrance of Maya

Posted in Miscellaneous on November 24, 2013 by kwdogs

Today marks the one year anniversary of my sweet amazing Maya’s passing. Not a day goes by where I don’t think of her and she is missed often and sorely. There’s no replacing her but since Maya’s passing there has been much change and advancement for the future. Our llewellin setter acquisitions have be wonderful and the addition of our 150 acres and new vacation home in the U.P. of Michigan. So it’s been a very busy year with much joy and good. Maya passed on Thanksgiving Day last year—my favorite holiday. I’m glad that I have much new thanks to give this Thanksgiving Day, including the privilege of spending time with the most incredible dog I have ever known— Maya. I love you sweet girl and always will. Thank you all for listening.

In case anyone wondered who was in charge….

Training in August

Posted in Miscellaneous, Uncategorized on August 7, 2013 by kwdogs

Usually training in August can be brutal weather for the dogs but the first week has been a real treat for both us humans and dogs!! June and July were certainly very harsh weather for all the pooches. The dogs are always a bit more difficult to work with in the fall but for good reason!! The weather is so much nicer for them and all of us dog people!!

We are busy as usual training 40 dogs with many people on our waiting list being very patient (and some not so patient) I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer vacations and are ready to get back to training those very loved unruly canines. See ya all in class soon!!

I have been so terrible about updating my site and this year particularly!!! So my apologies to all who check in with me to see what the latest is. Between my weekly 40 dog roster and my 4 new pups of my own things have been crazy busy!! I’ll try to do better about getting updates to this site. In the meantime, I have been building up another site of mine for the llewellin pups. Click on this link to keep tabs on my kids! Here are some photos of my llewellins you can check out!!
