Subject: MACH Cork

Just letting you know that Cork finished his MACH today under judge Kathy Humphreys and handled by my friend, Amy Mescher
Cork is now:

Itís been a very tough road for both of us. We have both been dealing with lots of health issues. Cork had Valley Fever for over 2 years and it (and the medication) took a lot out of him. Iíve been battling an Achilles injury for about 4 years as well. I finally broke down and had surgery last summer but the recovery is 1 yr. I was devastated because that meant losing out on an entire year of competing in any dog sports.
My good friend, Amy (center) took over handling Cork and finished the last six double Qs we needed for the MACH. Itís a true testament to Corkís temperament that he was willing and able to successfully run for another handler.
Heís such an awesome dog. Heís a great ambassador for the breed. Iím thankful everyday that heís in my life and look forward to the day we can compete together again

Hi Deep Run,

Just a quick update on Rocky (Pancho and Chanel). He is 3.5 years old and doing great. Looks more and more like Pancho every day. He is a sweet, happy boy and the mayor of our town. He has great manners and loves all people and dogs. Hope you are all well!

Subject: Porter

Dear Deep Run Farms,
We purchased a puppy from you and our boy, Porter turns four this month. We can not express how much we adore him. He is the apple of my eye and my husbandís as well. We have always been dog lovers but Porter has taught us just how deeply a dog can be loved.

He is so funny! And heís kind of a big deal at his dog park- his sportsmanship and ball catching abilities leave people speechless! Itís no exaggeration- he gives it everything heís got.

He wants so much to do the right thing, there has never been a problem- wait, thatís not true! Weíve caught him standing on the kitchen table a couple of times! Itís hard to scold him because heís such a comedian we canít help but laugh at his antics. But he learns very quickly. The boy can do no wrong as far as weíre concerned. He's smart as a whip and loves deeply. He is also very proud of himself, and he flaunts his awesomeness all the time!

I could go on all day, talking about him! Thank you so much for being amazing breeders. The work you do is magical! When we buy a bigger house in a couple of years, youíll be hearing from us: we would love to add another of your puppies to our family.

Best wishes,

Hi Phyllis and Kristi,
I tried to send this last week, but can't find it as sent or in drafts so.......
Glitter (Deep Run Black Diamond) turned 1 on 3/7/2018! Here are some bday pics!

She is wonderful, smart, and full of herself. I saw it in her picture you posted when I purchased her!

We have 2 legs on JH, another test this weekend. Still following the Hillman training program. Takes a little longer, but I'm really enjoying it. She has a season of club pheasant hunting under her belt. Great to hunt with. "Points" at birds and we've started of with sitting to flush. She may be one of the best upland dogs we've had....don't know about ducks----I'm getting a little long in the tooth for refuge hunting! lol

She's healthy and happy and thinks CA is the bomb. Hope things are well at Deep Run. We just love her and am so happy she found a place with us.

To: ""

Just dropping a note to say how pleased I am with Duke. 17 mos old and 85 lbs of love and waterfowl drive. At 16 mos I took him on his first quail hunt. A great day and 13 quail. He even points (nothing I trained). I hunt him in an offshore blind with. 7 ft plywood backed ladder for retrieves. Learning everyday and just getting better. Thanks for such a wonderful pup. Couple pics included.

Hello and Happy New Year. Milly (Casey/Mac litter born June 22, 2017) is pictured here at age six months at the end of December where she enjoyed several days running around in the snow in West Virginia. I hope all is well at Deep Run Farm despite the frigid temperatures.

Subject: Sara (Pancho x Fly litter 7/28/12)
Hello Phyllis!

Sara (C-ATCH2 Deep Run Sweet Serendipity FDX) raced in her first Flyball tournament in Boothbay Harbor ME last month and earned her first 2 flyball titles, FD and FDX. It's impossible to tell which she likes better, agility or flyball, she approaches both sports with such enthusiasm and amazing focus. People always ask me "is there anything she DOESN'T love to do?" and I have to say no. She just truly loves to work. She is an exceptional working dog, and such a joy to live with, happy to curl up on the couch until it's time to play, work or just go for a nice hike. She has exceptional manners with both dogs and people and I couldn't be happier with her. I can't believe 5 years have gone by. I am so thankful I came to you for this pup and you selected her for me.

Subject: Jessie

Deep Run team,

Weíve been meaning to send you some photos of Jessie in action. Jessie (Casey x Paris on 9/12/11) is 73 lbs., an absolute delight, and is complimented everywhere she goes. While she enjoys being out and about on our farm, her favorite activity is upland hunting, which we describe to others as Jessieís vacations., and swimming. Weíre at the stage of thinking about another pup and will be sure to return to Deep Run. You will see Jessie this year when she boards with you, as always. Have a happy new year.
See Jessie picture 2.
