The New OPP Recruit

From Marc Lapointe

Tue, Nov 22, 2016 at 10:56 PM

Hello Mike


Just wanted to update you on the puppy. As you can see below – the pup hit the social media waves last week and has been a huge success with our top bosses.


The pup is doing very well here. We have exposed him to virtually everything we can think of. Different flooring, stairs, building, noises……he is performing very well. Goes up and down any type of stairs. Goes into any building we take him. He is a bold and strong dog. Retrieving balls and toys well.


Thank you for now.

Hi Mike,
Hers a few pictures of Trooper in all his elements. Pat just loves him and he's really great with him. I have had to tweak a few things in myself to become the 2nd leader of the pack. Trooper is my baby in the evening and we take long walks together. We just love him in all his many characters. He is loving, smart, defiant, tough, funny as hell, sweet, loves to hunt, tough and energetic. We love him very much. Thanks for him!!


Best Wishes,

Cynthia and Pat Weston

"Ozzie" - The Greatest Dog on Earth

You probably don't remember me, but I bought Ozzie from you eight years ago. He was one of the pups from one of Anna's litters. I was on your website and I was reading one the testimonials. (Every now and then  I like to check in and look at the puppy photos.)
This is Ozzie's and my testimonial. Ozzie is not just my hunting companion in the field, he is my best buddy. Ozzie is the most loyal, loving dog I've ever had. He is quirky and clownish and yet all business when we are in the field. He is a great family dog and an important part of our family. He is always by my side and he just loves being with me. I could not ask for a better dog or friend.
I just wanted to thank you for Ozzie and the way he has blessed our lives! Ozzie is happy and healthy and God willing he will be with us for many more years.
When the time comes for me to get another dog I will be contacting you. I will never be able to replace Ozzie, but I definitely want my next dog to be another Pudlepointer that I get from you.
Thank you so much for my dog!
Ozzie is the Greatest Dog on Earth!


Best Wishes,

Thad Richardson

Hello Mike,


Charly arrived in Saint-Pierre in perfect condition , I went for a one hour walk with him just after the plane he loved it…

Next morning it was a lunch at the beach with the kids and the afternoon I went in the woods with him… Charly had the nose on the ground and playing in the water I think he is going to be a good hunter ….. he is a beautiful dog and all the family is happy ….we had many dogs and my father too and we can already say that Charly is a good pup he follows me every where, I don't even need to tell him …

Thanks for everything, we are 100 % happy and I will send you pictures soon!


Best Regards,

Hi Mike,


Thank you so much for sending our puppy down. It was complicated, but we are so happy she is here. She has been great so far and is very smart…possibly too smart for own good. She has been adapting great to our home, and she is always happy. We will be getting her rabies vaccination this week, and the quarantine period will end 30 days after the shot.


Thank You,

Greg & April

I’ve attached the letter again but this time as a PDF file. Also, I am sending an envelope with a copy of the letter to your house.

It is great to hear that Lucky had seven puppies. I am really excited to get my next pup. It is hard to believe that I’ve waited a whole year………time really flies by.

I am planning to give you a call tonight just to check in.


Talk to you soon!


Arrived Home

from Phil Goodwin

Hi, Mike-


First of all, many thanks for the wonderful hospitality from you and Rose – Nancy and I had a delightful time. It was really nice to meet Andy and Sue; Nancy enjoyed talking to another kindred soul about horses. Plus, I really appreciate the mentoring tips that you offered.


We’ve all arrived home safe and sound with no issues. We arrived at the border right on schedule. The border agent asked me what we’d been doing in Canada and I told him exactly what we’d done. After asking what a Pudelpointer was, I gave him the PP elevator speech. He then asked me how much we’d paid, and I answered truthfully. To that he said, “Wow, what makes them so special?” So, we got into a conversation about bird hunting. After a minute or two, he handed our passports back and waved us through with a “Welcome home.” No drama whatsoever! We arrived at United Cargo right on schedule and the flight was on time – could not have been a more perfect trip! The little girl seems to be loving her new surroundings and interacts with other dogs beautifully.


Thanks again, and I’ll be in touch.




Thank You... Great Website!

Hello mike,

Thank you for our conversation earlier in regards to our puppy we will be purchasing from you in an upcoming litter. We are really looking forward to our new addition to the family. My husband and I are both highly impressed with the knowledge and experience you have with the pudel pointer. We had looked at several breeders, and are very happy we picked pine ridge, and we haven't even gotten the puppy yet! We are also impressed with your new website. It is easy to access, very informative, pictures are great, and it is easy to maneouver around within it. The colors and overall appearance show class, and pedigree in its own right! Very nice. Well done. There was nothing that left us feeling that you were any less than a top notch, reputable breeder who knows their breed, and the obvious affection you have for it. Once again, great website. Based on this, and our correspondence with you, we are excited to be doing business with you!


Thank you once again,

Mrs. Aaron Palm

Pudelpointer "Finley"

Hi Mike, we just love our Pudelpointer Finley.  He has brought so much joy to our family.  He's really a terrific dog.  Thank You and happy holidays to you and your family.

Hercules A.K.A. "Diesel"



Hi Mike, this is our boy. You called him Hercules, we now call him Diesel. He's doing beautifully. Growing like a weed and seems very smart and well mannered. All is well here. Our best to you and Rose.

Thank You Again!

From Mike Cogswell


Mr and Mrs Pallotta,


Yesterday opened my eyes to a whole new level of excitement and I wanted to once again thank you for such a wonderful experience. Chris, Al, and I were talking about the experience the whole way home and cannot wait to come back. I was utterly blown away at the great service and business you run. I feel as though I shouldn't even call it a business as you made us feel as part of your family. It is not often that a customer receives the amount of care and dedication that you showed to our group. Brian and his dogs Harley, and Max were extraordinary and having you and him accompany us on the hunt made it a perfect outing. To top it off with some home cooked treats and good fellowship was a real dose of icing on the cake. 

I am including the recipe I promised to Mrs Pallotta and hope that you all enjoy it. I will try my hand at her recipe for gnocchi and will let you know how it comes out. 

I look forward to booking another hunt as soon as possible (I have even convinced Chris to get himself a nice double). My wife is looking forward to trying her shot at some pheasants so I will get in touch with you as soon as we can make it out again. 


Your hospitality, friendliness, and professionalism is top notch. 


Thank you again,

Mike Cogswell
