This page is full of real people who have a real puppy from Hearthside Country. We love hearing from everyone - and I try to get current pictures posted, but there are times when I do good, and then sometimes I am a mess. :o)
Hi Mary Ann, Finally figured out how to send pictures. Cliff and I just got through looking at the pictures you sent to us of GiGi before she came to us. The 2nd to last is her first day here and the last picture was at your place. Hard to believe it is the same sweet girl. She has changed so much. Her mom was Candi, and she looks a lot more like her now. She has the cutest dark gray strip down her back with dark gray on the tips of her ears. Still has a little gold on the back of her legs and shoulders, but the rest of her is silver. Can't tell you how much we are enjoying her. Even Millie, her maltipoo sister is crazy about her. I have never seen a pup who loves everyone! She has never met a stranger, except for her Vet, she can howl like a banshee when she sees him. Yes, she is a drama queen. Anyway, just wanted to show you how pretty she is. She went from a very strange looking little thing to a swan. Michelle & Cliff GiGi & Millie
Maryann, this is letter number 4 I've attempted on someone else's computer and they have all mysteriously disappeared when I accidentally touch some button or another. I'll write more when I have my own computer back, but since this is likely to disappear too, just let me say, thank you, thank you a million times for raising and choosing the perfect puppy for me. He has my heart overflowing with love....I want to tell you more but am afraid it will disappear too. He is perfect, does silly things..actually seems to have a sense of humor....you gave me a perfect companion....I have lots to tell you but don't want to lose this too...so, again, thanks and happy birthday to all his siblings! I will write and send photos when I have my own computer. Regards to Grace...I hope she still has the palm tree santa hat...I really would like a picture of her in it at Christmas time. God Bless you all....will write or call soon. This computer is crazy. Lynn
Becky, in Maryland, has 2 of our Maltipoo sisters - Firefly and Lady Bug are now Opal and Edith (Edie). Opal is on the right, Edie on the left. They are from Zephyr and Berniece. Bumble Bee, pictured with Kaye and David - below - is one of their brothers. The girls are happy to have each other to play with - totally different personalities. Opal is the busy one, Edie more laid back and easy going - but she is a good playmate for Edie. :o) Thank you Becky for sending these pictures, and giving these 2 sweet sisters, such a great home with you. :o)
Bumble Bee found himself a great home with Kaye and David, from northern Missouri. Kaye has called to let us know how much they love this little guy. David says he is the sweetest puppy they have ever had, and after a week, only one accident in the house so far. Bumby loves Kaye and stays by her side all the time.
Tyler and Jennifer in CA are Bodhi's parents. We love getting new pictures of our babies in their homes - and here are some that Jennifer has sent to us. Yes, Bodhi gets the Cutest Dog Award - especially with Jenn and Tyler as judges. :o) Thank you Jennifer, for sharing these with us.
Mary Ann I just wanted to send you a picture of Jade. She is so sweet and we are so in love with her. She loves to be touch and is so cute. We say she is a cat in a dog suit. She loves attention. She will play with our daughters two dogs. She will speak, set and stay, fetch, and will not run off when you let her out to play. Thank you so much for raising wonderful dogs. If we were to get another dog you will be the first we will contact. Thank You Pam H Boonville MO
Hi Mary Ann,
Meeker's birthday is in a couple of weeks so I thought it high time I let you know what an absolutely fabulous dog he is. He is so well behaved and connected to all of us. Loves being outside and going to the park and playing with any and all other dogs. And at home he is happy chasing a tennis ball or cuddled up on the couch (he prefers the cushions up on the back of the sofa just like a cat). Everyone who meets him thinks he is just the cutest dog going - even friends who are generally not animal lovers. We can't thank you enough for breeding just a sweet little boy. By the way he is still only around 6 pounds. Very active but not a huge eater. The picture attached is from July with Jackie in Colorado.
All the best, Sarah
Dear Jeff and Mary Ann, I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users. Details of the Recommendation: "After my English Bull Terrier of 12 years that I'd raised and trained from a pup died of a brain tumor, I couldn't fathom getting another dog of the same breed. Max was my first pet, a lovely boy, sweet and hard headed. Then I saw a photo of a red haired miniature poodle with big brown eyes, owned and bred by Mary Ann and Jeff. It was love at first sight for me! To make sure we were a good match for each other, Mary Ann took the time to describe Harley's personality, likes, dislikes, disposition and her expectations of an owner for this most precious puppy. She went out of her way to make sure the transition from Harley's family to mine went smoothly. She even put a sweater on him, for his plane ride to me because I was concerned he would get cold in the cargo hold since it was winter. Mary Ann got up at 1AM to bath, dress and make sure the puppy had a short and safe plane trip. Harley is everything she described and more. Besides being adorable to look at, he has a calm, affectionate, sweet and elegant disposition. In the 3 months I have had him, he knows all the basic commands including fetch, return, and roll over. Harley is gentle with children and friendly to people and other dogs. Bottom line is that this dog obviously came from good breeding and a loving home. I would buy another pet from the McGregor's and recommend them to someone looking for fine quality and good breeding in exceptional puppies. They exceeded my all my expectations and remain interested in Harley's progress." Service Category: Dog Breeder Year first hired: 2012 Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
Christine got one of our red poodle puppies, like the ones above. Catalina and Tyndale were their parents. We have had lots of people that are so happy with their poodle puppies from us.
Back in November, my husband surprised me with a toy poodle, JJ from you. When we brought him home, he was so scared he wouldn't leave my side. He was almost 3 pounds but still a cutie. Today he has the run of a very large yard and he's definitely king of our castle! He knows it too... Lol August 6th he will be a year old and
I have to thank you for bringing such joy and happiness back to our
home. I'm going to try and send this to you on Facebook with his picture Thank you again, Patti Donatello
All is well here. Chloe is a love and I enjoy her so much. I'll send you a picture

"Hi Mary Ann---Good luck developing your new web site---I have looked at it and found it very pleasing and inspirational. Gracie is doing very well---she is cream and apricot now with single black hairs throughout her body-- she has changed colors many times---from dark as a puppy to the lighter shade she is now. Keep up the great work and we pray for God's Blessings on you and your family! Wally and Jerrie H."
Poppy is a first generation Pekapoo. Quizzy and Suki are her parents.
She is very happy in GA with Linda and Dwight.
"Good Morning and Happy Fourth Mary Ann and family, I love the video and the narration of the puppies. I can tell you love them all! I am curious to see what the brindle boy will look like. I am not interested in breeding Jango so I am more interested in the color of the puppy vs the sex. I will keep an eye on that one. I hope one day we can meet. I can not tell you enough how much happiness Jango is bringing to our family. My son is home from college and has fell in love with him. I will have to forward you some videos of the two of them playing together. I anticipate when the boys go back to school Jango will be lost. My brother was in last week and brought his full grown boxer. The two got along perfectly!!! It was fun to watch. Well take care and I hope you have a wonderful day. Big Hug!!"
We just got Hunter!! He is sooooo cute, smells so good!! I am going to forward you some pictures in a bit!! We love him!!! Kids are crazy happy!! Thank you sooooo much!!
Sending lots of love! Hope you and the family have a wonderful holiday! Ashley
Hello Mary Ann, How are you? I wanted to thank you again for Milo and letting you know he is doing super good. We love him!! His personality is so nice, every single person that meets him melts. A lot of people have been asking me for your contact I gave them your email and website. Milo is really the cutest dog I have ever seen, we couldn't be happier to have him in our lives!! We adore him, he is so sweet!! I am attaching you a couple of pictures so you can see him now grown up. Thank you again. We hope you and your family are doing great. Gabriel, Martina and Milo
Just in from Leslie in Florida. Sophie is one of Amy and Tyndale's girls.
"Hi Maryann, Just sent you a picture of Sophie. She is now 8 lbs. and almost 10 months. She is the best little poodle doodle in the world. So kind, so loving, so sweet, loves to cuddle, smart as a whip! Just wanted you to know she is providing us with more love and entertainment than we thought possible. Such a sweet sweet girl! Hope you and your family are well! Love, Leslie" Thank you Leslie - we love hearing that. :O) We called her Shenandoah.
"Got your e-mail this morning added your new address....just a note to let you know that Sam is doing great. Don't know what I did without him. Going to try and attach a photo...hope you get it. This is Lauren with Sam....she loves Sam and he loves her too. She is a precious young lady from church. Donnah"
"Hello to you, and so glad to hear from you. I go to your website all the time, to see your new babies...Mine are wonderful..They are still a joy and have brought more happiness to us, than we would have expected. Harley is still my babie, and is layed back and just a boy. Mercedes is still my jack rabbit, and as smart as a button. She has been allens nurse thru all his sickness, and takes care of him like a nurse.. We love them both, and so glad we found you. Have a great summer...i will send pics when i have more time... Love to you and Hearthside..
Carrie & Allen Bartlett"
Please be sure to add us to your list. We will be looking for a brother for Pippa this summer - she needs someone to run with. We think we want a black poodle - anything in the planning ?? We just adore this little dog. She can be a challenge at times, but so lovey at other times. She has lots of energy. We are hoping to find a non shedding male that will be a little bigger than Pippa (she weighs 8) since she will probably be pretty bossy. We are also looking for a calm temperament . She is housebroken, sits on command, plays fetch and can jump through a hoop on command. She refuses to come when called. She is well socialized from going to the dog park about 5 days a week, in fact we think she may just own that park :) She may be my Mom's favorite grandchild!!! Thanks Chris Bond and Pippa (Meramec)

"Meet Gilbert, Therapy Puppy!!!
"Have you ever noticed that dogs are non-judgmental, trusting, give unconditional love, listen, and help people feel needed and impor-tant? In addition, dogs tend to be warm and fuzzy, are a form of entertainment and bring smiles to those they meet. Well, that is Gil-bert’s role within our program. Gilbert helps to make our veterans feel more comfortable and our patients have stated that they feel less anxious when he is present during our therapy sessions.
Gilbert (Arenas) is a black & white Maltipoo puppy born on 9/11/2009. He is a very friendly little boy who loves to play and give kisses. If you see him in hallway feel free to stop him and say hello! He loves attention.
Gilbert is currently participating in groups held with Mental Health Intensive Case Manage-ment (MHICM), 3DE, Health Improvement Program (HIP), and Psychosocial Recovery and Rehabilitation Program (PRRC). For more in-formation on therapy puppies & dogs please feel free to contact Tiffany Thomas in 'HIP'."

Hey MaryAnn, Hope you are doing well. Duffy is doing great, he now weighs 4 pounds!! He has a big appetite, always going on his wee wee pad and knows how to fetch and sit! I am going to start teaching how to start goingpotty outside soon. He is such a smart little guy . . I love him so much he is so great and so loving and just the cutestpuppy I have ever seen.

Lauren and Duffy
Dear Mary Ann, I can't thank you enough for this little guy. He is just so sweet, and has such a great personality. I feel so blessed to have chosen you to get a puppy from. I am enjoying every moment with him. He loves to cuddle and be held and even follows me around the house, it is too cute! My boyfriend and parents have fallen in love with him as well. He is getting spoiled with everyone giving him so much love and attention and he is just loving it! You can tell that you really well socialize your puppies because Duffy just has such a sweet and friendly personality, he is just so perfect. Thank you again for caring so much. :-) Here are some pictures of Duffy, hope you enjoy them. :-) Sincerely, Lauren.
Chatham and Alexandria in VA - Chatham is a maltipoo.
"Hi. Mrs. Marry Ann! ~ All is great here! Chatham is just a little sweet heart she fallows me everywhere! She is a little social butterfly and loves to play with the little ones! I couldn't have asked for a better little puppy thank you so much for everything! Thanks! Love, Alexandria!" hi Mrs. Marry Ann! Thanks for the info she's doing much better with dinner and breakfast, She went to the vet a few days ago and got a shot, they say she's doing just perfect! Its nice to know how much you love and care for your little babies!
Hi Mrs. Marry Ann, Chatham is still doing just awesome I'm head over heals in love with her! I left to the movies this afternoon for the first time since Saturday, I had not left her sight. I was SO worried that she would not fallow me around or give me kisses when I pick her up when I got home! When I got home a few hours later, Chatham jumped out of my little sister arms and ran to my feet! it was the cutest thing ever! The signed health certificate is on its way, I also wanted to thank you for blessing me with my little love bug she has really helped me get through some tough times, and has kept a smile in my face the past week! Lots of love<3, Alexandria:)
Hi Mary Ann!
Duke and I are just great! I attached a few pictures of him for you to view. He is sleeping at my feet right now. He is such a little joy! I am having a bit of trouble potty training him, but hopefully he will come around. :-) I hope everything is going very well for you, your family, and your wonderful pets. Thank you so much for my little Dukey! ~~ Tiffany"
"Oreo is doing so well. I thought I'd send you these pictures cause I had her groomed last night. Not sure how I like her better. I liked her as a little fluff ball but I also like her face being cut and I know she has to be so much cooler now. "Oreo is doing great. It took only 3 times with a treat to get her to sit. Now she does it all the time. We have to start on a hand shake next. Hope all is well with you and the family. Puppy Hugs, Nancy"
"Mary Ann, Words cannot express how much we have bonded with this beautiful baby boy. He has also already learned the "sit" command. He does not like training treats, so I have to use real chicken. He is a finicky little thing! hank you taking such good care of him. He is a perfect fit for our family. Heather"
Hi Mary Ann , I haven’t sent you an email in a while and I was thinking about you this morning so I decided to send a quick email. I’m sitting here doing work on the computer and Ginger is all curled up in my lap taking a nap. She’s such a cuddle bug. She is doing so fantastic! I really have never been around an animal that loves life as much as Ginger loves life. She loves everything! She loves getting a bath, she loves going for rides in the car, she loves eating, she loves sleeping, she loves going to the groomer, she loves being a guard dog, she loves taking walks, she loves all visitors, she loves playing with the children and the neighbor dogs, she loves hanging out and she loves TEXAS! I just had to add that. I mean normally there is something they don’t like whether it is baths or something. She even likes the blow dryer. She rolls over and enjoys every minute. She is such a sweet girl and we love her so much. Thanks for raising such a precious little girl for our family. We could not be happier and she could not be happier. We are getting a family picture next month and of course Ginger will be in it! I’ll send you a copy. I may use it as a Christmas card. I hope all is well with your family. Has your daughter started school yet?
This is Simone. She lives in Kansas with Vesta. Vesta and her daughter were able to come here to get this sweet poodle girl. Simone has such a good home with Vesta - who says she is the hit of her block, and gets lots of attention from neighbors and friends. Her vet gave her a perfect score on every test he could run.
A few pictures of Simone while she was growing up here at Hearthside. Simone actually is one of our very first poodles ever born here at Hearthside - Fun Memories for us.
Nancy and Roxi in Boston
We have Roxi, the best puppy ever! She is adorable as tell as super smart....you didn't tell me that I had a genius. She's been so adaptable. We have her collar on, put her harness on & she's walks great on a leash. You know I wanted to do piddle pad training but she goes outside & has pretty good control. She made it for 6 hrs. the past 2 nights. She also uses the piddle pads. She's so playful & is learning quickly key words. The only time she cries is when we put her in her playpen so that we can shower, get dressed, eat, etc. Her cries are gut wrenching but I know she just doesn't want to be left alone.....she'll have to learn that we do have to leave her but we come back. She is enrolled in a 6 week puppy kindergarten class starting Aug. 18th. (Nancy told my by phone, she thinks she needs the graduate level already. :o)
How was your journey back home? The Zaifert's couldn't have been nicer. Wish we could have met you. I'll have Joel send you some pics of the precious baby. We're off now to the vet for her check-up. Thanks for bringing so much joy into our lives. Love, Nancy ❤ Mary Ann, Hopefully, you are back home with all your babies both human & puppies. I know you do testing on your puppies but I don't think I was told the results of my "genius." She is a show stopper. We can't get far outside since everyone stops her......she loves the attention. We are so in love with her! Love, Nancy ❤
"Hi Mary Ann, Taxi arrived!! He is doing well. We are home and getting settled. Thank you so much for everything. He is everything I thought he would be. I will send you some pictures in the next few days. Tammi" "Hi Mary Ann, I've been meaning to email you an update on how Taxi is doing. He is great!!! He is the sweetest and cutest puppy ever. I can't believe his temperament and how mellow he is. I am enjoying being a mommy, it is a lot of work though. I had his puppy shower last Friday and he got a lot of fun gifts. He also had a visit to the vet which was positive. He is doing well. I wanted to thank you again for all that you have done. I attached a picture of the two of us. We'll be in touch. Take care, Tammi"
Hi Mary Ann~ I've been wanting to drop you a line for awhile, but you know how that goes sometimes. We are so in love with Matty, he is truly a blessing. I have lots of pics i'll try to send as well. He is such a well behaved smart little boy. He's been out to phoenix with us and was the most well behaved passenger on the plane. He got to meet his poodle cousins over Christmas. He's going to his training class tonight, and I'm sure he's very excited. He's had all his shots including rabies, He has a haircut appointment on Feb 2nd to get him ready for our trip to Vegas. Anyway, I'll try to keep you posted and updated with pictures or if you have a facebook account you can see all of them, he has his own album. Hope all is well with you and thank you so much! Have a wonderful day! Matt"
"Hi MaryAnn, She is sooo cute! all my friends have told me they want to steal her because they think shes just adorable. We've renamed her, she is now Isabel and is great at going potty outside...when I take her, other than that she has had a few accidents but I usually catch her or can tell when she needs to go so I take care of it before she goes inside. She and our cat (who's only 4 months old) have been getting along very well and play all the time. It's the cutest thing ever. I'll have to take some pictures and send them to you. We've begun to crate train her and shes doing very well with it. - Paige" ~~~~~~ "We took her to the vet last week and she said that she seemed to be doing well. I have gotten so many compliments on her. We just love her! Pictures and/or a video will be coming your way soon. Thanks, Paige"
