Hi Heather! 

I hope you and your family are doing well! I wanted to send you an email letting you know what a complete blessing Tilly has been to my life! Tilly will be a year old on July 3rd and I can’t believe how fast the time has gone- I feel like it was just yesterday that I picked her up. Except, I also feel like I have had her in my life for years- so much so that I can’t imagine a day without her greeting me at the door!

It has been amazing to see how much a little dog can completely change my day. I am thoroughly attached! I can honestly say that the best part of my day is waking up and getting ready to go to bed because these are the times that Tilly loves to cuddle the most! When I wake up, I go straight to pick her up. In the morning, she has the cutest little tired sniffles and lays her head right one my shoulder. We have most definitely gotten into a routine!
I have just transitioned her to sleeping in her bed right alongside of mine. She also is a pro in the car. When we take corners, you would think she is on a inner tube with the way she preps for a corner!! ha Tilly is also having “free rein” of the house and doing great (this probably could have come sooner, but I was a bit nervous to give her that freedom all at once)! 
Tilly has most definitely become my little companion and I cannot tell you how happy I am that I took the step and brought her home! I tell everyone that she is the best decision I’ve made 🙂 Tilly is so spunky, relentless (she always thinks she is much bigger than she is), social, and I can’t seem to go anywhere without people commenting on how adorable she is. Not to mention, I don’t think it’s possible for a dog to have more personality! 
Thank you thank you for all you do to place these little ones in great homes! I am extremely grateful for Tilly and will likely be expanding our Lillybit family in the future 🙂 I have included some pictures for you, below! (Notice her little pirate underbite- gives her so much character!)
I could not have a better dog! 
Thanks so much,

Siri, Ina & Walter

Hi Heather!

My intention was to just look at your Facebook site and look for Hazel’s picture with long shaggy hair (to use it as a guideline to growing Siri’s hair out) then sign out and go to sleep… But as usual I get stuck looking through hundreds of cute puppies for hours and it is now 3:45 in the morning, oops!

I’ve never really had the chance to say how thankful I am for letting us and trusting us enough to have such a wonderful dog like her. She has changed our lives dramatically and definitely made our home a much happier place. I know she truly did come from a loving family before us, she is exactly what you told us she would be. She’s such a good companion, great temperament, so playful, obedient, loves people and cuddling. I honestly couldn’t have ask for a better dog. She is now 7 lbs and if I’m right she’s done growing, I haven’t seen any changes in her weight… She’s tiny but eats a lot! I don’t know how she does it she stays lean, it’s probably from all the running haha. But again thank you for everything, giving us such a great opportunity to have something so precious. God bless you and your family for doing what you do best and that’s loving and caring for every litter that comes into your home. Siri has truly become my best friend and best daughter to Walter and I. Thank you! Also happy belated Mother’s Day 🙂

Hi Heather!

It’s been six weeks since Suri has been home and we can’t imagine it any other way.  She is absolutely fantastic!

I know you and I discussed at length her temperament for coming to work with me.  Well I must say you REALLY nailed it!  Suri is equally comfortable at home or work.  She interacts each day with at least 20 children and their parents.  She is quite, patient, friendly, playful  and LOVABLE!  Suri loves to take all her toys from her space and run them to the front of the store to wait for the children.  It is unbelievable.  Blockspot (work)  is housed in a 55,000 square foot recreational center.  Suri follows me at my heels -no leash across basketball courts, down halls and to the front offices.  The entire staff ( and occupants) can’t get enough of her.  She has been known to “hug” and curl up to sleep on a few laps!

At home, Suri and Quinni( our other dog) are fast friends.  Suri goes potty outside 90% of the time ( how great Quinni has been in helping THAT).  Suri is eating, drinking and sleeping well.  She even sits for her treats!  My boys and husband all can’t get enough of Suri kisses- and she sure is a Lillybits licker!

Best compliment of today came from the groomer ” the BEST puppy we have EVER seen”.  She was so well behaved they couldn’t believe it.  They called me at home asking ( joking) if they could pay me double what I paid for her!!!

So a HUGE thank you.  Your care, love and intuition are spot on.  You truly give each family a unique bundle of love that can only be called -Lillybits!

Hello Heather and all the Lillybits,

With the holidays fast approaching, we felt it important to say a huge Thank You for letting us bring Oggy home with us.  We could not be any happier with him.  When you expressed your experienced opinion that Oggy would be the best choice for us,  we thought at the time “we will see about that.”

He is definitely unique from all your other puppies with his wavy hair v.s. curly and  all black coloring with only the white paw and chest;  just like his mom, Sadie.    His coloring has not changed from the day we brought him home in March.  He does have  auburn highlights in the bright sun, which we love.

Neither of us had been pet owners for many years, so this was an almost new experience for us, too.  Oggy had us trained in a very short time!  He was a dream to train with diligence on our part; he was ringing the bell to go outside in one month.  He still has access to his litter box, but only sleeps in it now.  There are so many adjectives to describe him – adorable, sweet, non-aggressive, friendly, loves everyone, obedient, SMART, mellow,  barks just the right amount for a “guard dog,”  and best of all has fit into our lifestyle perfectly.   He continues to add new words to his command vocabulary.   He is still adjusting to long car rides, but loves to go with us.  He is the perfect angel dog,  just does not get into trouble…yet!

We do not have a great camera, but will send a snapshot for you to see how “growed” up he is 🙂  all 16 1/2 lbs. of him.   This will be a fun holiday season for us all.   We have shared your name with the many people that ask “what kind dog he is and where did we find him?”

Happy Holidays           Lorrie, Denny and Oggy  Devlin          Sherwood, OR

Hi Heather,


I thought I would give you an update with pictures of Sadie. She is doing very well and has been a true blessing to have around. She has become my “let’s go anywhere” partner. She loves to go anywhere and EVERYWHERE! She does not know a stranger whether human or animal. She has to go greet everyone.  She is loved by all. Well, maybe not by one of my cats, but maybe in time.


We have even traveled on a plane together for a family wedding and she did FABULOUS! She was no problem the entire trip and loved seeing and smelling new things. She saw a cow for the 1st time and decided she did not like them. She made lots of new friends and  was a hit at my Grandmother’s assisted living residence. We will be returning there in June for a family reunion so positive thoughts for another great trip.


We have been taking puppy classes in Sumner where we both have learned a great deal of positive behaviors. We are getting ready to start the Canine Good Citizen class this Wednesday. She has become a different puppy since we started classes 3 months ago. She loves going and seeing everyone each week, as do I. I am glad I waited until I was truly ready for a puppy so that I could give the time needed to the dog parent each one deserves. I have enjoyed this time with her and love having her in my life.


Thank you for all you and your family does to insure each family has a fabulous Lillybit to take home with them. I love that the family is involved and you
LOVE what you do from beginning to end. I could not have asked for anything better being my 1st puppy. I have so much love for my Sadie that I know started with you and what you do.


One that note I am also emailing you to see what the next puppy waiting list looks like. I am almost sure Sadie and I are ready for a playmate to come join us. I know she would LOVE IT. Although, I don’t think she realizes she will have to share me now…. I am not in any rush but just wanted to see how things were looking.



Blessings to you,



Steve & Peggy

Hi Heather,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to give you a Rue update and share with you our first Arizona Vet experience. In a word, she is amazing!! She is such a sweetheart! I just adore her!!

We went for our wellness check and I have never seen anything like it! EVERYONE had to come see this amazing, adorable little Rue. When the Vet came in for the exam he actually took pictures of her to show his wife and asked me to email him all the info on Lillybits because he just knew his wife was going to want a Lillybits Shichon of her own. It was too cute and she was such a good girl! I was a proud mama 😉


Bye for now –

Hi Heather,

Here are the pictures I took initially of Murphy’s set up. I have to
admit that we keep on opening the gate and increasing his amount of
space if we are in the room with him. It’s just so hard to leave him
alone! 😉

I would say he’s about 85-90% potty reliable in the house- that
percent goes up when he is confined to his playspace. Even with more
space though he usually seems to know where his potty is (even if out
of eyesight), but forgets every once in awhile.

He is so cute and such a delight! The vet said he was the healthiest
puppy, had been raised on excellent food, and had the perfect

Thanks for everything Heather,
