Xoana’s Xtreme boys:
Xoana had been a bit restless for a couple of days so I knew she was close. I sat wrapping presents (every year, I promise myself that I will not wait until the last minute to wrap again next year… and yet every Christmas Eva, I find myself up all night wrapping…) and Xoana just could not get close enough- sitting on me, pushing presents out of the way, etc. Finally, I had to actually lock her out of my room to get anything done. At about 11:pm, I could feel/hear her pacing back and forth at the door and panting and whimpering, and I just had this feeling in my gut that she was really in labor. So I let her back in and had my husband take over the wrapping as I sat and snuggled her and rubbed her belly. I could definitely feel that she had some good, strong contractions. At 12:02 am, Christmas morning, our first little girl was born. 7 more perfect, healthy, beautiful babies soon followed <3 What a Christmas blessing! <3 Ethan is one of Xoana’s favorites and he wanted to sit with us while she had her babies. It was a long night, so he was only awake intermittently, but I know Xoana appreciated having her little buddy there. <3

Hi everyone, Cupid here. I’m doing awesome and enjoying my sister dogs here. My favorites include flying onto their backs and running away from or to get them. I had another visit with my Vet today and I’ve gained 10 pounds in four weeks. She said I was a sweetheart and very healthy. I start school on April 12th but I’m learning the basics in the mean time. The little boy here wanted to know what my backpack would look like cause everybody that goes to school has a back pack. I get to go on lots of car rides and walks and I’m meeting lots of peoples and dogs. I’m really a confident outgoing girl and I believe I can do everything I put my mind to. There is so much to choose from though. I’m such a good dog and I attract lots of attention wherever I go.
Hi guys Cupid here with another update. I’ve started school now and I’ve gone to two classes everyone says I’m beautiful and confident. Needless to say I’m a quick learner to I’ve got my set ,my down, my heel and my come all ,figured out, At least most of the time. The other day mom and I had a herd of deer run across in front of us while walking. And then we got back to the yard and the crazy goose try to check me out. It was flying really low. I get lots of playtime with my sisters and awesome walks with mom. I’m doing really well And I’ll write again soon
Hi everyone, Cupid here. Can you believe I’m 8months old? Mom caught me watching the new neighbors again. There have been lots of changes in the neighborhood and I have to stay on top of things.
Mom says we are moving too when the house sells. I’ve been watching her painting and even helping now and then. My favorite is to back my butt into a freshly painted wall or to put my head between railings. Needless to say I’ve had some interesting paint designs on my body. I also like playing in the water that comes out of the hose and putting my toys in the shower when Mom’s in there. ( Cupid ‘s rule: There shall not be any closed doors between Mom and I). I continue to train Mom as she continues to train me. We have lots of fun training each other. I’ll catch y’all again soon. All my lovies to the family. Cupid
