|Dear Karen -
I have been meaning to write you for several months but just never seemed
to find the time. To explain, I spend all my free time with the
wonderful gift you helped our family receive - Rebelcreek's Great Caesar's Ghost - otherwise known as Casper.
Our first Golden, Jake, joined our family in 1989. We lost him
last summer and were devastated. After several months, my wife Cathi began
research for a new puppy and discovered Rebelcreek. After numerous communications
with you and several owners, she came to me with a package of information
and letters and said, "We need to bring a new family member home."
After months of anticipation, we received Casper in May, 1999.
I can't describe the joy he has brought to our family and how proud we are
of him and of being a part of the Rebelcreek extended family.
To any prospective Golden family considering Rebelcreek - You can't
do any better than Karen for a breeder and her Golden puppies for a new family member. While we waited for Casper's birth, you responded to Cathi's numerous messages promptly, with enduring humor and useful information.
After he was born, your weekly updates made us feel we were right there watching
him. After we finally received him, you have helped us repeatedly with all
our questions, and have been great just to send a message to let you know Casper's latest little antic. You might as well have been our
next-door neighbor and you made us feel like we were the only people you had
to work with. And Casper? Well, to say he's the most beautiful, well-behaved
and loving Golden in the world is mere understatement! Everyone who sees
him stops and stares, then asks where did we ever find such a gorgeous Golden?
Other dogs "hang their heads in shame" when they see Casper (just kidding! He's
great with other dogs, but he prefers people). And Casper has been
very sensitive and gentle with Erik since the first day he came home (our son Erik
Would we want another Golden puppy from Rebelcreek? You bet!!
In fact, Cathi came to me again last weekend with another package and now we
are anxiously awaiting for the arrival of Rebelcreek's Ghost of a Chance
- Wendy to her friends.
Thank you Karen, for the wonderfulness of Casper and Wendy-to-be, and
for your tremendous support and hard work.
