Hi Rocky and Loretta!
I just wanted to shoot an email over to you guys to tell you I am thinking about you guys and all of your kids!!!! Here is an update on my baby Staffy girl:
Monkey is doing great. She is almost 16 months old. She is showing all of the signs of going into heat (it has been 7months to the day since her last heat began, in which she showed color for 25 days). She smells everything, wants to wander into the neighbors yard every opportunity she gets and is getting snippy with dogs that do anything more than the usual “meet and greet” sniff. Her temperament is still great with other dogs although she prefers the company of bigger dogs. Her best friend is my girlfriends 85 pound Australian Sheppard. He is a fixed male that definitely has the hots for her ;-) Her love for children is mind blowing. I heard that Staffy’s tend to love children, but now I have seen it first hand. She has filled out nicely in the past few months; she ways a little over 33 pounds and has the posture of a champion. Her training, ongoing daily, is going great and she is very concerned with my reactions to her behavior. She sits at every curb and does not leave the curb until she gets my hand signal. She has mastered the sit/stay/down commands (verbal and hand signals) and also heels on command.
I have a few pictures of her posted on my website, below:

I am also linking to your site so people can find you…I get a few emails a week from people looking for an English Staffordshire Bull Terrier breeder. Let me know if you don’t want them to contact you and I will take it off.
