Hi Kathie!                                                                                                                                          November 19, 2009

I'm glad you guys enjoyed the pictures.  He had another vet appointment yesterday and he's up to 18 pounds!  I can't
believe how quickly he's growing.  We were sitting watching t.v. last night and he likes to sit in my lap.  Bob looks at me
and says, "He's not going to be a puppy for much longer."  He still seems so small to me, but not compared to the 4
pound little puppy we brought home a few months ago.  It's crazy!

We'll keep you guys up to date on his progress.  I hope to get some great pictures of him in the snow!  Can't wait to see
what the new puppies look like!  You guys are sure doing God's work!  

Have a great Thanksgiving and we'll talk to you soon!
Hi Kathie and Joe!                                                                                                                  November 16, 2009

First of all, Happy Anniversary!  There aren't many couples out there that make it to 25 years!  Congrats on that!  

I've finally downloaded some pictures of Hank (aka Linus).  It's safe to say that he's horribly spoiled!  He's starting
to take rides with Bob in the car and is really starting to like it.  And, it's safe to say that he hasn't met a fallen
leaf or acorn that he doesn't like (or stick for that matter).  

He's also been hanging out with his cousin....a four year old yellow lab (who is as big as a horse compared to Hank).  
Hank believes that Dirk has that long tail just for him to play with!  It's amazing how gentle Dirk is when playing
with Hank.  I'll take pictures next time they have a play date.

He's truly a joy and growing every day.   At his last vet appointment on the 3rd, he was 12 pounds.  He goes in again
on Wednesday.  I can only imagine how much he weighs now.  Pretty soon we won't be able to carry him around!  So,
here are some pictures of our perfect Hank!  Thank you so much for letting us become his parents.  He is one special

Happy Thanksgiving!  Margaret and Bob!
Hi Kathie!                                                                                                                                                                          April 6, 2010

I wanted to send you a few updated pictures of Hank...in the picture of Hank looking out the window, I've also attached what
he was looking at.  We're excited about him coming to visit in June.  Once all our details are firm, I'll let you know the exact
dates.  Thanks so much!  Take care!
