I thought I would shoot you an email and let you know we just got Ziva’s (Jinx) 20 week booster shots done Saturday and she did real well at the vet appointment. The vet said she is looking real good and her weight is 37 lbs. I really like how she is looking on the Fromms Large breed gold dog food. Ziva’s coat is really nice and shiny and very soft. We have Ziva signed up for a basic obedience class with a local dog trainer that I have heard good things about from our vet. The trainers name is Brian Gagye who runs Special Ops K9 training in North Webster. Brian is a former Marine sniper and Deputy sheriff from Michigan who started this company a few years ago after being injured on duty in a car pursuit. Brian had Carol and I go to his 2 hour Dog behavior/Psychology class for humans last Saturday and we will be taking Ziva over to start her classes in the next week. Our youngest son Eric and his wife just closed on a home down there last week and moved in Saturday in the South Port area, so we will be able to take her with us when we visit now and I would like to have you see her sometime when we are down there if you are going to be home and have the time.I will try to send you some pictures soon to, but it seems like we spend all our time chasing after her with no time for snapping pictures. I had forgot now much time and energy it took for a little puppy. I’m not sure how you can keep up with all you have on your plate. Carol and love having the little black rat around. We are getting ready to order some 5′ high black pvc coated chain link fence to install in our back yard so Ziva will be able to run off leash and play ball. I hope weather cooperates this fall so I can do it myself and get it done before snow flys.
I hope all is well with you and your family. I thought I would send you a picture and a quick update on Ziva ( Jinx ) she turned six years old on Saturday and remains in very good health and has a very good temperament. Ziva is still on Fromms dog food and has been since we picked her up from you and has done well on this food. We are trying to slim her down just a little bit but as you very well know Rotts love to eat and she loves her treats ! Ziva of course is an inside dog but loves to go outside and patrol our fenced in back yard for the rabbits that seem to get under the fence and taunt her into chasing them . We enjoy having her in our lives as she is very much one of the family.
