Good Evening Lucy and Fredericka!
Blessings from our family to yours.
We just wanted to update you on our beloved
Rosie, who turns 8 years old this month.
She is getting older, but is still in
very good health and loves to play outside and
take long naps. She is best friends with our
youngest and is very protective. We adopted
Leila from China in 2015 and Rosie has been
protective of her since the first day they met.
She lets Leila use her as a big pillow or
bean bag and follows her around in case Leila
drops food. Rosie still chases the
occasional deer in the yard, but is content to lay
in the sun on the patio most of the time. We
just wanted to update you with some photos (See
below) of Rosie and feel free to post them on your
May you have a Merry Christmas and a
blessed new year!

An update on Rosie: She is about 170 pounds now
and in great shape. She loves to be close to us
whether we are inside the home or outside. She is
very protective of the kids, especially Katie our
youngest. She does, however, like to pull logs out
of my firewood pile and leave them all over the
yard. She see these as simply sticks to chew on.
She is a great dog and we love the joy she brings
to our family. Iíve included an updated photo.

UPDATE! BRINDLE FEMALE
Date: Wed, 15 Jun 2011
Hi Lucy & Fredericka!
Hope all is well at Flying Farms. Rosie is now 7
months old and was just weighed at the vet
yesterday at 86 pounds. She is doing great and is
a wonderful dog! She loves to sit on our laps when
we sit on the floor and loves to be outside in the
yard with the kids. She loves to drag firewood all
over the yard and use it as a chew-toy. Apparently
small sticks are just not big enough for her!. I
have attached an updated photo to go with the last
ones I sent you, so you can see how she has grown.
I actually have a question for you: When should we
stop feeding her puppy food and transition her to
adult dog food? Thanks for any help in this area.

Hi Lucy and Fredericka!
Hope all is well at Flying Farms. Rosie is a
wonderfu dog and we love her dearly! She is now 12
weeks old and weighs 35 pounds (15 pounds at 8
weeks during her 1st vet visit)! She loves playing
outside and chasing the boys (Clark & Charlie)
in the backyard as well as getting belly rubs when
she is tired out. She is such a tender dog and we
can see how the American Mastiff breed loves their
family. When we are in the kitchen or watching tv
in the family room, she has to be right next to
you and will either lean up against you or lay her
paws and face on your lap. She is eating and
sleeping very well. Kate has a new best friend in
Rosie and loves to spend time with her when the
boys are at school. All of her vet checks have
been great and she is a wonderful addtion to our
The other day, we met one of Rosie's cousins at a
local park here in Westerville. Sherman, a brindle
male, whose owners 1st name is Dwayne, said he
bought Sherman from you sometime in late 2010.
I've attached some current photos for you to
enjoy. Thanks and God Bless!

Hi Lucy and Fredericka,
Things at are house are continuing to go well. As
I type this email Rosie is laying close by chewing
on her toy. We went to the vet yesterday and that
went very well. She agreed that Rosie looked
great, gave her a heartworm pill, did a stool
sample, gave us some leads on dog training classes
and we are scheduled for our next appt. in a few
The kids are having a great time with her. The
camped out the first night in the family room with
her but after that they have left the nightime
routines to us.:) Our daughter Kate has become
quite the little helper with Rosie so that has
been fun to watch.
Rosie has made a great addition to our family.

We made it home safely last night with one quick
stop to potty. Rosie is doing great and is getting
more comfortable each time she is awake and
bonding with all of us. I added the chicken broth
to her dog food tonight and wow was that a hit. :)
She has done all of her pottying outside so that
is a huge blessing. We are expecting to continue
that with regular trips outside. I've attached a
picture of Clark & Rosie in the kitchen.
We LOVE her! Thank you, again!
We will touch base again soon I am sure.-Becky
