Puppy 2, Dudley
Dudley is at home with the Kruse family of Belgrade, Montana.
Hey Carolyn
Took Dudley in to get his haircut today and he weighed 59 pounds . . . heading to the 6...0 soon!  Was wondering how big the other dogs are in the 2009 litter?  We were checking out the latest 2010 litter on your site today!  
The little yellow girl is sure a cutie.  Hope you guys are enjoying the puppies!

His hair is pretty curly and he sheds just when we brush him for the most part.  Kinda like our own hair.  Here are some picture updates.  Yes, he is very happy and loves his new squeaky bear!

Just wanted to let you know that Dudley is turning into a great dog!  He weighs 52 pounds and just completed the intermediate class at Petsmart this week.  He still is the class clown and wants to just play; but is still learning a lot.  We plan on taking the advanced class in September through Petsmart and practicing what we have learned the past 16 weeks until then.  I am just so happy with what a great dog he is becoming!

He likes to crawl through the snow, so we have taught him to "crawl". He only has two more puppy classes left. He was 32 pounds this past Tuesday. ~Krystal 


Dudley is fitting in quite well and loves the snow.  He loves his walks a couple times a day and went sledding on my lap.  He is so calm and the kids love him.  He's a smart one!  He knows sit, a short stay, gentle (for the kids and taking treats from our hands) and shake.  We will keep you posted!  Thanks, ~The Kruses
