Tanglewood’s Love Me Do, “Kaiser”

April 3rd, 2012



Thought you might enjoy a picture of Kaiser.  I would also like to thank you from the bottom of my heart…. for him!!  He is such a great dog.  He loves his mommy, sleeping on the couch, and chasing the cats. He believes that if he sits and stares at the food on the counter long enough that somehow it will magically fall on the floor.  He thinks he gets away with “sneaking” on the bed when I am asleep.  He walks around as if he is “all that and a bag of chips” but truly is a Gentle Giant.  What a great addition to our family he has been.  I love my Kaiser.

While I sit here in our living room this Sunday morning, watching Archie as he plays.  I realized it had been some time since I had last talked to you. 


As I look at Archie on the floor romping around with his big old Shamu the whale stuffed toy-  I realized how lucky we were to have found two people, like you and Ed, who have very obviously done everything within their power to foster a responsible breeding program and helped to produce a happy, healthy, and may I say, quite handsome little guy.  Archie is a wonderful dog, he is one of the most intelligent and responsive dogs I have ever  had the privilege to have as part of my family.  


You were both right, the breed does demand strong, decisive leadership and guidance; but when you do your job with proper parenting, training and exercise, what wonderful rewards await.  


I was also so pleased during our last Vet visit to hear our Vet say how happy he was to see us with a Giant.  He sees so few and has always been impressed with the breed and knows Archie will be a perfect fit for us.  


Thanks again to both of you……

Tanglewood’s Spy Who Loved Me (Niko)

January 18th, 2009

Dear Ed and Jean,

Cristal and I can not express enough how happy we are with our beautiful new puppy, Tanglewood’s Spy Who Loved Me (Niko).  He is an adorable little boy.  It is obvious that you invest a great deal of love and effort into breeding Giant Schnauzers.  Niko is incredibly loving and playful.  It surprised me how quickly he accepted our family as his new pack.  All of our friends and family have commented on what a beautiful and friendly dog he is.

Niko is not only loving, but also highly intelligent.  Within a few short days he has developed an amazing bond with our five-month-old daughter.  Niko is instinctively gentle with our little girl.  He loves to give her kisses and snuggle up against her while she sits in my lap. Our daughter has also taken quite a liking to him.  It took her a few days to get used to all the licking and sniffing.  However, she seems to really enjoy her new friend.

On Niko’s first trip to the veterinarian, the doctor even commented on how well behaved of a puppy he was.  He said that it was obvious our breeder had invested tremendous time working with Niko before he came to us.

Niko’s loving devotion to our family is testament to the amazing job you do breeding and socializing Giant Schnauzers.  Thank you for the wonderful new addition to our family.

Sincerely,Matt and Cristal Backer
