page is dedicated to all of you who have purchased Belmark puppies. We will
showcase pets, performance as well as show dogs. To all of you who have sent me
your letters, Thank You! I love to hear how the puppies are doing. I hope to
update theses pages regularly, so if you are not on here yet please don't feel
bad; I'm trying to get to everyone. Please keep them coming, as
they are the best part of my day!
We recently lost another of our older dogs and
are now down to Bear and Lexi. We are thinking
about adding another to the household and have
been so pleased with these two that I wouldn’t
think of going anywhere else. We’ve had
Shelties for 35 years now and these are by far
the best tempered dogs we’ve ever had. They are
incredibly intelligent and friendly…..not the
timid, high strung Shelties you typically see.
are some pictures of both Lexi and Bear. Bear
loves to fetch. This summer while hacking
around, I threw a Frisbee out on the front lawn.
It took just a days before he was snatching
them out of the air….a few weeks later he was
jumping. He absolutely loves doing this every
day with Lexi shadowing him.
Very best regards,
| Hi Bella-
I don't know if you will remember me-- I
purchased a sable and white female puppy from you in
March 2009. She is doing terrific. She is the apple
of my eye and gets along great with my other 2
Sheltie girls. Of the 3, Darcy is the cuddler and I
love that. I can't believe she will turn 2 this
Christmas Eve!She is very special and I am so glad
she is part of our family. I am including a few
pictures so you can see how gorgeous she is. And one
picture of her playing with one of my other girls.

He is absolutely gorgeous, excellent temperament, beautiful
type, very smart, fluid mover, and a joy to live with. He is
everything I wanted.... Thank you so much for him- we love him so
Hello again, Bella,
I have attached two pictures of Gunner for you to see how
happy and beautiful he looks.
Just a quick note to let you
know Dusty is going great. He is such a happy puppy
and is beautiful. He got his last set of shots last
week and was 16 pounds. He will be neutered near the
end of June. I always look at your website and it
looks like you are doing well and keeping very busy.
I almost called you about Meg, the female adult tri
but I used extreme discipline. Have a great summer!
Just thought I would send you a picture of
“Geffy” Andy. He is 8 lbs. and 11 inches tall now, at 4 ½ months.
He is such a joy. He loves people and loves dogs and cats even
more. We are trying to make a wildcat fan out of him and take away
that buckeye blood. J
Hi Bella -
How are you? I wanted to send you some fun news. Tina has just received
her Canine Good Citizen certificate, after working our way through a few
In addition, we’ve been doing agility and attached are some fun photos
of her at agility class – this was only our 5th class!

Attached is a funny picture that Cheryl took recently of
Wyatt (Corrin) on our back deck. He is a little shy of
getting his picture made when Cheryl holds the camera up
to her face. He is peering out at her from under the
swing on our deck. Out of all the many shelties we have
had over the years, he is the biggest character and most
intelligent of them all. We love him very much, and he
loves us and our older sheltie. He turned two in
January, but it is hard to believe we have had him that
Thought you might enjoy these recent photos of Goodies. He
is beautiful and as sweet as ever. Thank you so much for the
enormous joy and love that he has brought to our family.
I'm attaching some pictures of Oliver at 14 weeks. I honestly
cannot thank you enough for this wonderful puppy. He's so
gregarious, super biddable (definitely the superstar in his puppy
obedience class), and just an all-around delightful dog. No one
believes me, but I'm serious when I tell people that he's the
He's also getting more handsome by the day. Everywhere we go
people comment about how beautiful he is.
Scotti is doing great and we
are thrilled with him. We love his personality and I enjoy
watching him move out, he is a fancy little mover :) He is
doing real well with his crate training and house breaking
He is doing super on his
leash training just walking around and staying by my
side. My husband and I are really enjoying him.
Thank you for such a
wonderful little boy.

attached is a recent photo of Fianna. She is now 6 1/2 months
old, 13 1/2 inches tall and and a very happy puppy, as you can
see. She listens quite well and is obviously a very intelligent
little sheltie. We all love her very much!
Thanks for the email and photos. He looks wonderful. We
are talking about him and will be giving you a call. We
were boating today and thought you would like to see our
little WallE. We love him very much and he is spoiled
rotten…and we love it.
We will talk soon,
Here is a picture of Gabriel with Indy (aka Indian Jones) which
is what we decided to call him. He has been quite the explorer
around here and he has that beautiful weathered leather kind of
coat. We think it will fit him just nicely as he gets bigger.
Again, we are enjoying him.
Just wanted to wish you a
Happy New Year, and let you know how happy we have been
with our beautiful little princess (Emmie - on the
left). She now has a partner in crime - Buddy, and the
two of them have been fantastic together and with the
kids. Emmie's personality is so sweet and we love the
way she "talks" to us.
Vana will be spayed today. Just returned from my
Vet’s office. She’s very popular with the Vet
staff, cute, sweet, and cooperative!!We continue to
be amazed by her. Her personality is coming out.
She’s playful and loved our big snowfall this week.
She loves to “steal” the hanky from my husband’s
pocket. She’s great with other dogs and has a
friend in our neighborhood, Barney, and loves when
we walk with him and his owner. This is such a
great Dog Town because you can bring your dog
anywhere (except food establishments), so it’s been
easy to socialize her. She goes everywhere with me
now – Post Office, Drug Store (where they have
treats), the farm, the bank!!
We’re having a carpet runner installed so she can go
down the stairs safely. And Karen and Cameron and
Me and Vana are planning to attend some dog
obedience classes together in the spring.
And smart!! She knows “let’s go for a walk (or
pee),” “where’s your bone,” “sit,” “wait” and is
great on the leash. I had to use my first “bad dog”
when she tried to steal the cat’s food. But I don’t
have to tell you all this, you already know what a
great breed they are!! : )So – I guess you can tell
we’re in love with her. My friends tell me I’m
absolutely giddy with delight!!
Our best to you and your family,
Bella and the Family:
Just wanted to drop you a line and wish you a
very happy New Year! Hope your holidays have been full of joy
and you're looking forward to the new year ahead. "Gus" (aka Josh dob
3/11/09) is almost 10 months old now, and a better, more well-adjusted
pup you couldn't find anywhere. He's been a absolute gift to this
household and a truly wonderful addition. He's so well socialized,
obedient (OK, well, most of the time hahahaha), and drop-dead gorgeous,
he's a hit on Sheltie Forums. He's definitely a big boy as you
predicted. Gus now weighs in at 40
pounds and 18 1/2 inches tall. I can't say enough about your excellent
breeding program and outstanding care and attention to your puppies. You
may be hearing from me next year as I look for another brother or
sister for Gus.
Enjoy the photos!
All the best, Joe
Shelby is now a year old today and is doing wonderful. She
weighs 22 pounds and is about 14 inches high. She is just all
ball of energy always wanting to play and run around. She just
loves chasing the birds and the rabbits around the yard. We
have completed puppy kindergarten, elementary school, and we
even completed a class on tricks and games. She is a very quick
learner. She was the only dog in her class to learn how to roll
over, she even learned it the first night!! She is very much a
social butterfly and just loves to be around people and other
dogs. I am planning on working towards her canine good
citizenship certification this spring and summer. I am hoping
she can pass, I think our biggest hurdle will be trying to keep
her focused, especially when there are children playing
nearby. Regardless of whether or not she passes the CGC
certification she is a wonderful dog, with the greatest
personality. Nothing at all ever seems to phase her or upset
her in the least. I do not think she could be mean even if she
had too. Thanks for providing us with such a compassionate
companion, and I hope you enjoy the attached photos from her
