Hi Maryjo, We are thoroughly consumed with our new family member! We renamed her Abbey and wow is she a fast learner! Just today she walked over to the area of the yard we have been training her to go, all by herself and went to the bathroom! We had a busy weekend and had to leave her in her crate for several hours, and we returned to a dry crate!! It was a pleasure meeting you, and I am thankful you are so willing to support us with any questions we may have and offer the products needed to care for Abbey. You have found another loyal customer in me. Thank you so much for all you do in providing such treasures to families!! Living in His Presence, Kathy

* * * My puppies are raised holistically, I do not believe in using antibiotics, immunizations or drugs when raising my puppies. Yes, most breeders have your puppy on antibiotics as a precaution, in case they get sick. Antibiotics are a drug. They give one kind of antibiotic in the morning and a different kind of antibiotic in the evening. These are sold as antibiotics for cattle and can be bought without a prescription. They come in gallon size. No thanks! Make sure you read my Antibiotics Page.
I think if you start them off with a strong immune system and keep it that way, then you do not need to raise them with unhealthy precautions. This takes up much more of my time to raise them this way and costs me a lot more money but to me it is worth it. I have many who come back to get 2 and 3 puppies from me. They are healthy, happy and wonderful. * * * What do you get when you buy a puppy from me? ANY help you need and lifetime support! A puppy with a 5 year health guarantee! Not 1 year, but 5! Our puppies are so healthy that we feel we can stand behind this! You get a puppy with a healthy DNA. You get a registered puppy! You get a puppy that is not only good with kids but is very used to being around them! You get a puppy with a gorgeous, fluffy, soft and not a bleached coat! Yes, some puppies are bathed in a shampoo that has bleach in it! I don't know a single breeder except myself who doesn't use this toxic shampoo! You get a puppy who has been raised on a predominantly meat based diet. This is what their ancestors ate and this is what they should be eating to be healthy! You get a holistically raised puppy! Start reading my website and learn. You owe it to your puppy! ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Many of my customers are confused about worms and I think many are even afraid of them. You will be worming your puppy regularly until it is 6 months of age and then 2 times a year for it's lifetime. Many of you think your previous dog never had worms but the reality is your vet probably gave you a little envelope of pills to give to your dog for 3 days and you never realized it was for worms. All mammals have worms and they need to be dewormed. This has nothing to do with vaccinations, it is completely separate. Please read my Worming Page before purchasing a puppy from me. Thank you and let me know if you have any questions about this. ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ Important Vet Quotes Below ~~~ "I think that vaccines, justly credited as the tamers of disease epidemics, are nevertheless the leading killers of dogs and cats in America today. " Martin Goldstein, D.V.M
~~~"The first thing that must change is the myth that vaccines are harmless. Veterinarians and animal guardians have to come to realize that they are not protecting animals from disease by annual vaccinations, but in fact, are destroying the health and immune systems of these same animals they love and care for." Dr. Charles Loops D.V.M.
Read more on my Immunizations Page and Puppy Care Page. Please let me know if you have any questions. Of course, I am not pushy about whether or not you vaccinate your puppy once it leaves my care. Your puppy is no longer my responsibility but yours and you are free to do as you please.

Below is a recent Happy Customer Email! Kelly bought one puppy from me and placed a deposit on another puppy the very next day, for her mother! This email was sent just a couple days later and already the puppies are doing so well!
Hi MaryJo! We are loving our buttercups! It’s so fun to watch them play with each other. They acclimated to our family like fish to water. Zoe (mine) follows me everywhere. She is like my little buddy. She is so smart and fun! It’s been a week today and she is sleeping in her crate from 10-6 (knock on wood, no accidents!). We take her out after she eats and drinks and she does her business! We are quite proud J. Zoe has been coming to work with me and my clients adore her.
Mom is loving Chloe (her pup) too. They are just a loving, soft, fluffy, fun part of our lives. I can’t believe I have only had them a week. I can’t imagine our family without them now.
Thank you so much! You have enriched our lives.
Much Puppy Love, Kelly
Welcome to my website. I have spent many hours/years working on it. There is quite a bit of information on it and it keeps growing.
I am passionate about puppies/dogs and keeping them healthy and I find the holistic world very fascinating. It is important that the information I have found helpful get passed along to you, so you can always make the best decision when it comes to your dogs health care. While I do have a five year health guarantee, I do not want a phone call even years later, with bad news about your dog.
My goal is to have your puppy live until it is at least 17 years old, if not 25 years, and die of natural causes and not cancer etc... Many health issues our pets have are easily preventable. Many things that we take for granted and assume we have to do when raising our puppies/dogs, can alter their DNA, which in turn affects their health. Please take the time to read the rest of the pages on this website and learn. There are many holistic vet's who claim dogs can live this long, 25 years, if raised holistically, some claim they can live even longer than that! These are long and healthy years!
I cringe every time a potential dog customer tells me that their dog lived until it was old, 13 years... I hate to tell you this, but 13 years for a dog to live is not a very long time. Of course there are many more of you who have a dog that doesn't even make it to the age of 5 because it get's cancer. Please read my website, it get's me right in the heart when I hear about a dog getting cancer or dying of "old age." "Our ongoing studies of dogs show that following routine vaccination, there is a significant rise in the level of antibodies dogs produce against their own tissues. Some of these antibodies have been shown to target the thyroid gland, connective tissue such as that found in the valves of the heart, red blood cells, DNA, etc." Dr Larry Glickman
As I explore the natural health world, I find it very exciting to see alternative things work! Like using Natural Wonders Clay for loose stools, for instance! You can read about that on my Stools Page. It is amazing to me!
There are many cheap and easy things to use on your pet that work even better than many things your vet may recommend and there are no unwanted side affects!
Everything I write about I feel very strongly about and want to share with you.
Please feel free to explore my website and email or call if you have any questions. Have fun! Maryjo
For those who are already very holistic, make sure you read this page!
~~~All my puppies are registered and come with a 5 year health guarantee!
Sweet little Buttercup!
By the way, if a puppy is going to have a genetic problem, it usually doesn't show up until after they are 1 year of age. This is why you don't find many breeders offering a guarantee for more than 1 year.
~~~Immunizations alter the DNA and this is what shows up as a genetic problem. So if a puppy has been vaccinated, and they are being vaccinated more than one time before they come to live with you, their DNA will be altered and they will have genetic problems. Like I said above, this usually will not show up until after the age of one, my guarantee extends until the age of five. If their parents have been vaccinated and even their grandparents, then this will affect your puppy too. You do not want a puppy who has parents and grandparents with a DNA that has been altered. I know I have been repeating this, but it shocks me that immunizations not only do this but that they continue to be given by the vets and breeders. Please do not buy a vaccinated puppy or a puppy that has parents who have been vaccinated.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Very Important Please Read Many of you go ahead and use the information from this website, find a puppy elsewhere that has not been vaccinated and raise him without vaccinations, thinking you will then have a healthy dog. This is not enough. Your puppy ends up with health problems or ends up dying. It is really shocking how many people buy puppies that end up dying! I know this because you email or call me telling me about it. It really makes me sad because I am trying to change that.
Even if you find a breeder who agrees to skip the vaccinations for your puppy, his parents are still vaccinated, his grandparents, etc... he comes from a long line of unhealthy DNA and just plain old unhealthy stock! Unhealthy DNA is what causes the poor health and you won't even know your dog has problems until he is at least 1 year of age. This is the reason so many breeders offer a guarantee that is only good up to a year of age.
Some of you think, one set of shots is no big deal but it is a very much a big deal. The damage has been done just from that one set of vaccinations. Also, there is more to it than just the vaccinations.
The food they are fed as babies is very important too. My puppies are raised on a homemade food with a recipe I got from a holistic vet. This recipe even includes free range eggs I gather from my yard. I gently process them to get calcium from the egg shells for the recipe too, instead of buying calcium powder. This is a much healthier calcium powder. There is zero nutrition in most of the foods that the breeders are using, this includes even the more expensive dog food like Iams. Yes, they can survive on this junky food but it is not benefitting them like a homemade food would. The proper nutrition I start them off on, offers them the very best start in life. This, along with no vaccinations, parents and oftentimes, even grandparents with no vaccinations, really sets the stage for their future health.
My puppies are given no antibiotics. Most breeders, since they are raising such unhealthy puppies, put them on antibiotics hoping to save some. It is a very high percentage of them who do this! They have them on one kind of antibiotic in the morning and another kind at night. These antibiotics are bought in a gallon size jug, so they have a lot of it and it is cheaper to buy it this way too. They are able to get the antibiotics in such large amounts because it is actually for cattle. It can be bought at any farm store without a prescription. I know, I was instructed to do this and when I did a search on it, I found many breeders discussing it on many breeder forums!
So what's wrong with antibiotics? Plenty, but I will not go into it here. Antibiotics kill off the good bacteria in your puppy and sets him up for a lifetime of health issues. Make sure you read my Antibiotics Page. Instead of antibiotics, within the first hour of the birth of any puppy or puppies, they are given probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria and it helps with so many things.
We don't just use any probiotic, we make our own. I go to a farm and get raw milk from a farmer who not only raises his cows on grass, the way God intended, but he feeds them things like whey and alfalfa to make the milk even more nutritious. This milk is incredible! I pay a lot of money for it but is so worth it! I then culture it, thereby increasing the vitamins and minerals in it, the end result is a beautiful thick creamy milk kefir, full of good bacteria. This contains a lot more good bacteria than any probiotic you could get in a store. I could go on and on here but hopefully you will be doing some reading on my site and will be learning how I raise them and why it is important that they be raised properly. I felt I had to write this on the first page on my website to get your attention because I honestly cannot stand the heartache I hear in people when they call me or email me. I feel the pain too!! I cannot help you if you have already bought from someone else and your puppy is dead. It is just sad. It is not worth it to save a couple hundred dollars by buying else where.
``` ``` ``` ``` ``` ``` I recently talked to a man who bought a puppy from me almost 3 years ago. Keep in mind, this puppy was not vaccinated by me but he did have one rabies shot when he was older. The man had to get blood titers done so he could put the dog in a boarding facility so he could go on vacation. The kennel required immunizations which the man did not want to do but they were willing to accept the blood titers being done by a vet. Through blood titers, a vet is then able to see how much immunity a dog has against certain diseases. The vet he took his dog to was stunned and said he never saw anything like it before, the dog had so much immunity! Ha, I love it! This was "medical" proof that what I do with my puppies and don't do to them, is really really good for them! Meanwhile, I know of someone else who had a young dog and his titers were done, only to find that he had very low immunity. He also had no vaccines but came from parents who were vaccinated. Interesting, I thought, seeing as I keep saying the vaccines from the parents and even the grandparents can affect the health of the offspring.
Enjoy the slide show below!!! These are puppies that have been sold! I also have a Previous Puppy Page you may want to look at!
I am a holistic breeder. This means I find natural ways to keep my puppies and adults healthy. My puppies and adult dogs are far more healthier than they ever have been since I have been using the natural protocols! (Us too!)
___________________________________________________________ Please see my other pages for more information about the care your puppy will have received while I have had him in my care. I highly recommend you read some of these pages as they will answer many of the questions that you may have, of course feel free to call or email me too!
~~Our Puppies are Hypoallergenic and Non Shedding~~ ~~Our Puppies are Incredibly Sweet and Gentle~~ ~~Our Puppies are Not Yippy~~ ~~Our Puppies Come with a 5 Year Health Guarantee~~ ~~Our Puppies are Registered~~ ~~Our puppies, since they have not been vaccinated, come to you with a healthy DNA. Without a healthy DNA, you will not have a healthy dog. Our puppies also come from a long line of ancestors with healthy DNA's. Usually mom and dad have not been vaccinated and grandma and grandpa have not been vaccinated. A puppy with an altered DNA may or may not have issues in his first year of life, but as that puppy grows, he will definitely be an unhealthy adult and will have a shortened life span. ~~Our puppies come with any help I can offer you for the lifetime of your pet~~

A Couple "Happy Customer" Emails Below! You can find more on my Happy Customer Page! _______________________________________________________
Maryjo, Can you believe our Lucy is now almost six months old. I thought I would send you an update with pictures to let you know how we are doing. We are pretty sure that we have the cutest and sweetest puppy in the world.
If you remember the first time I met Lucy she was about 7 weeks old and just a quiet and cuddly pup. She hasn’t changed a bit and is perfect for our family. (7 weeks old because she came to look at her and place a deposit. They stay with me until they are 8 weeks old. Very shocking, these breeders who let them go earlier. The breeder who let's them go at 6 weeks old is trying to avoid the diseases and problems that show up after 6 weeks of age.) Lucy has been pretty easy to potty train. I found out that puppies hate the smell of white vinegar so cleaning up a mistake with vinegar and water was a cheap and effective training aid. Lucy was very smart from day one, learning the sit, shake and lay down command within two weeks.
Lucy loves the entire family and has maintained her sweet, cuddly personality. This was very important because we wanted her to sit with my handicapped daughter Brittany. Lucy is very happy to lay in her lap and give her a few kisses. She knows when it is time for Brittany to wake up in the morning and go to bed at night and trots down the hallway to be part of the process every time. Lucy is able to go outside without a leash, rarely barks and love all visitors. We have yet to find anyone that does not fall in love with her immediately. We have been taking her to The Dog Doctor in Ann Arbor and it is worth the hour drive!
Thanks so much! Sandi

Hello Maryjo, I purchased Scotty in the Spring of 2011. He was the last one left from The American Idol litter. Just wanted you to know he is the best dog I have ever owned. Scotty is loving, loyal, healthy and happy. I also just changed VETS! Our Scotty is now 22.2 pounds and gorgeous. My new vet is very impressed with him and even told me he came from an EXCELLENT BREEDER and it is obvious! WOW, BE PROUD! I am holistic 100% for my two dogs and I'm following everything I have learned from you! THANK YOU! Your new web site is GREAT! God Bless You and Your Wonderful Family Jane
~~~Which Browser are you Using?~~~ Is my Drop Down Menu Above, Not Working?
My husband got me a new laptop for Christmas and I set it up myself, it really wasn't that difficult, usually one of my kids does this type of thing for me. BUT, I did one major thing wrong, I was using "internet explorer" instead of "google chrome" and things just weren't working properly! I was blaming the new laptop when really it was internet explorer causing me all the problems. If you want to read more about this, go to my Blog Page. But let me just mention one of the problems here, my drop down menu was not working and I suspect that many of you who call me and tell me they can't get my drop down menu to work, may be using internet explorer. My Blog! ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ Please check the time difference before you call, I got a call at 3:00 a.m while I was sleeping the other night! It was a call from CA and while there is a 3 hour time difference, this means that person called me at midnight, their time.
One of My Favorite Poems
You can't buy loyalty, they say, I bought it though, the other day. You can't buy friendship, tried and true, But just the same, I bought that too. I made my bid, and on the spot. Bought love and faith and a whole lot of happiness, so all in all, the purchase price was pretty small. I bought a single trusting heart, that gave devotion from the start. If you think these things are not for sale, Buy a brown-eyed puppy with a wagging tail.
