Hello Fredericka and Lucy,

I trust you both are well. I wanted to touch base and send some new pics of the Sommerville pups. Moss had ACL surgery in Feb and is healing great. Just took him in for his check up and all is well. Ironically, I met Kathleen Rosskopf, her husband and Baleu at the clinic here in Birmingham. As soon as they walked in I knew he was an American Mastiff. He looked so much like Maddie. Of course we became fast friends!

Small world. Maddie is very close to 200 pounds now. She is taller than Moss and outweighs him since his surgery. I wouldn’t believe it was possible. They are still thick as thieves and love barking at the neighbors and running at the farm. Still my beloved fur children. When daddy is not home, they get cuddle bed time with mama. Moss at my feet, my forever protector and Maddie in my husband’s’s place, by my head, my forever cuddle love.

Here are some recent pictures!

Love from the Sommerville family!

Hello Ms. Fredericka,

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope all is well with you, your family and the animals! Wanted to share a few recent pics of the Sommerville dogs. Maddie just turned 2. so hard to believe we have had her for this long. Moss is our old man at 6 years, set in his ways. They are our fur children and such a joy.

Hello Fredericka,

I trust you are well. Here are a few recent pictures of the Sommerville pups, Moss and Maddie. They are thick as thieves and best of friends.

I think Maddie will out grow Moss. She is already as tall as he and her paws are MUCH bigger. She is a sweet & funny girl and a bit destructive in the teething dept. She has many chew toys and she prefers the corners of stairs, window sills and outdoor wooden furniture. I think we are past the worst, thank goodness. Miles nor Moss were chewers so this has been a lesson. She came through her spade surgery with flying colors, never skipping a beat.

Moss is my faithful protector and shadow. Where ever I go, he goes. His love of car rides has transferred to Maddie so when they hear my car keys, it’s a race for the car.

My best to you all!

Hello Maddie’s Friends,

It has been one week and everyone is doing GREAT! After 2 days she perked up and is our little Tasmanian Devil, does not stop unless she naps. William and I have laughed a lot this week and said the word “NO” at least 1000 times. I have realized instead of joining a gym, get a puppy. Moss, Maddie and I have spent a lot of time outside running around and exploring. Moss is just now warming up to his new companion and playing with her. The first 2 night she howled a lot in her kennel and is now sleeping until 5:30.
I have attached a few pictures and have uploaded all I have taken in this first week.

Fredericka and Lucy, It was such a pleasure to see you both again and to see the farm, dogs and horses is the daylight. Once we get our farm closer, you will be seeing us again to get another puppy and a horse. The Friesians’ are beautiful. I was so impressed with your operation and your love of the animals!
