Hi Jimmy,

“We love our Honey! She has been such a sweetheart and such a blessing to our family. We did have to rename her Honey, because that name just fits her. She has made a dog lover out of my wife who I love to kid about that.

We will put together a note and pictures for your testimonial page this Christmas.

We had my Niece and her family over for Thanksgiving. My Niece is a stay at home mom, with a ten year old daughter. She also has an eight year old daughter with some special needs. They also fell in love with Honey. She asked me to ask you if you are aware of another Sheltie that is similar to Honey's temperament? I don't know if you remember but Honey is social but not hyper, great with kids, other animals and just has a sweet temperament.”

“Hi Jimmy! we just wanted to let you know how wonderful of pet Honey is! She is very happy, loving, playful and smart. We absolutely adore her; in fact, everybody does! She loves playing ball, going for daily rides to school, going on walks, and she also loves the dog park. People stop and admire her wherever we go because she is so beautiful. She, of course, loves all of the attention. Her temperament is so good that we hope to get her involved with Hand in Paw therapy where she and Ruthie, our daughter, would visit nursing homes, hospice facilities, and schools. Obedience school is her first step, and then, the interview process will begin. Our family has been blessed any times by families and pets who participate in the program. Honey has the perfect disposition...she loves people, loves to be petted and loves going for car rides:).  Thank you for raising such incredible dogs and for entrusting Honey to our family. We love her dearly!”

Merry Christmas, 

Andrea

"Dear Jimmy, Family and Team Gideon  

“It’s been two weeks now since we met you and Gideon.  Seems like he has progressed two years already!  As you know, we named him Wiley C. and it looks like he’s growing into that name quickly.  He mastered the pet door in hours and is rapidly approaching to be the lead dog of three other Sheltie adults.  They love him as do we.  We couldn’t be happier with this puppy and he has already repaired more hearts than he or we will ever know.  

You may cut and paste this note how you want but we wanted to let you all know what a wonderful experience adopting this beautiful boy has been.  All communication with you and the kennel has been above and beyond.  Trust works both ways and I think we all found it early.  We love all dogs but Shelties have been our choice for many years now.  We have no interest in showing or breeding our dogs, just love them as part of the family and they have never disappointed.  This puppy is showing signs of being one of the best ever.  Thanks to all of you, he is so smart, well socialized, beautiful, master of squeaky toys and sweet beyond belief.  That takes a wonderful team of breeders, parents and hands on caring.  We just couldn’t be happier.  I would drive across the country to adopt a dog from this breeder.  We can only say thank you again and know that your Gideon is welcomed and loved by us and his three Sheltie brothers.  We wish you all the best as we slip into this holiday season with the hairy little gift we all wished for.

"Dear Jimmy and Holly Bluff Shelties,

Thank you Jimmy and Holly Bluff Shelties for our new puppy Brinkley. Brinkley arrived to us full of joy and happiness. Furthermore, his demeanor is so full of life, and he is not skittish around new people; in fact he loves meeting everyone in our life. We really appreciate all the time and effort put forth by everyone at Holly Bluff Shelties in socializing the puppies before placement.

In addition, Brinkley arrived almost fully potty trained; which was a definite plus! Our first night with Brinkley was a surprise, in the sense that when he was ready for bed, he walked into his crate....and slept through the night! 

Lastly, because of all the love and attention Brinkley received from his mother and everyone at Holly Bluff Shelties, his temperament and personality continue to bring so much joy and love into our home."

Thank you again

"Merry Christmas to you and all of yours Mr. Jimmy
I love your new introduction video and all of the other videos & pictures that you've added to your website. How in the world did you ever find the time? - We've watched the Party Puppy video dozens of times.
Your website is what helped us decide that we wanted a Holly Bluff Sheltie. And now, oh my goodness! Your site so greatly surpasses any & all others I've seen. I fear that with these new changes, even more people will be requesting puppies.
Even with the other expectant mommas, I think I had better reserve another on now.
If possible we would like a little boy - - Madison & I have decided that his name should be "Hudson".
Then we will have Hudson & Ms. Holly B.
Please do send me the link so that I can put a despite down on a second puppy. . . . . before all the other folks get in ahead of us.
Job well done!!

Thank you!

"We had to let you know what a delight it is to have Murphy as part of our family!  He seems to be made for winters in Wisconsin.  After he does his business outside, he wants to play in the snow, burying his face in it up to his ears!  Then he gets "snow nose."  So cute.  He'd keep playing out in the cold, and we'd freeze, if we didn't pick him up and go in where it is warm.  He sleeps in his kennel in our bedroom and doesn't whine and lets us get our 8-10 hours of sleep!

He is fun to play with in the house and when our grandkids are over, they wear each other out!  Murphy makes a wonderful "lap therapist."  We always have a chew bone for him to work on while we pet him on our lap and let the cares of the day float away.

 He just brings a smile to our face!  Thank you so much for letting us adopt him from you!  We would drive 14 hours to Mississippi all over again to get Murphy.  

 It is apparent that you have done a lot of socializing with your puppies. Thank you for all of the good information and the time you gave us while we were at your beautiful facility.  Even though he has never tasted human food, he is our little "Murphy, Murphy Muffin Man."  :o)

 P.S.  He gets along with our cat, chases my daughter's 4-year-old Sheltie at her house, and chases my son's 2-year-old, 60 lb. yellow Labrador at our house!  Those nights, everyone sleeps good, too!”

Hello Jimmy,

Murphmarket yesterday to get new dog food went to the Pet Superd, a walking collar that goes around his chest, and some chewys. The manager is over six feet tall and when he saw Murphy he dropped to his knees and started talking baby talk to him! Murphy was the star attraction at the store and was very friendly with everyone. Bob is his willing slave, and he claims that Murphy is doing a good job of training BOB!

The little guy surprised me because from day one; he went into his crate in our bedroom at 10 PM and slept through the night. He has been consistent about it and usually awakes between 5:45 to 6:00 AM. He and Tootsie are getting along great so I think they will be great friends always.

I hope all is well with your family. It is a lovely day today and a great day to play in the yard with our puppy!

Smiles,

Denise S.
