"Dear Kelly, Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! Thank you for my precious perfect and wonderful dachshund! Never in a million years did I expect that he would be this perfect. I never imagined a dachshund could be this perfect. I now understand the importance of breeding for temperament and other breed standard attributes but to be able to actually experience what that means is amazing.
It took 5 longs days to come up with what we felt would be a good name with meaning for this precious, perfect and wonderful dachshund. It was while looking at his little feet I said he's got little biscuit feet. When heard the word biscuit he spun his little body around, tilted his head to the side and looked right at me and from that moment on he has been our little Biscuit!
I am attaching a few pictures so you can see how beautiful he is growing up to be. We will be going to Wilmington for a long weekend and hope to have some pictures of the two of us taken and I will send you one. Thank you again."

"Kelly, It was an absolute pleasure to meet you yesterday. I loved your farm and the obvious care and love you put into every aspect of it. I only regret not being able to stay at the b&b and enjoy all that the farm has to offer. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of your kennels and the apparent excellent health of all the dachshunds. I was furthered impressed after we left the kennels. Sherman (our red smooth male) and I had a good day of travel. He had the best behavior and no accidents, for the entire day. He waited until 10pm last night to relieve himself, outside, at home. He slept thru the night and again this morning, the best potty training, outside for that! We love him and are very grateful for the time, love and commitment you put into raising your dogs."

"Cinnamon is doing very well. Her coat is beautiful right now. The hair on her stomach has grown back about fully from the spaying. She is an awesome lovable dachshund."

"Dear Mrs. Kelly, I finally am able to send you a picture of Cinnamon and two with her and Buster. She is doing very well. Cinnamon is a loving dachshund who loves us and Buster. She has such a good temperment. She is such a wonderful addition to our family. You are an outstanding breeder. Outstanding for the fact that you take care of each individual dog like if you only had one. Also for the fact that temperment is part of your breeding practice as well as for maintaining and improving the breed standard.
For these reasons I would definitely buy another dog with you as well as tell people
who call me to question my opinion and experience. We are very happy to give
Cinnamon a perminate home along with Buster. Thank you for such a wonderful dog."

"Just wanted to let you know that Nash is doing great and adjusting well. He is so darn CUTE! I had him health checked on Monday and all appears well. He'll go back on the 7th for his next set of shots. Thank you so much for answering all of my questions and helping us find such a great dog!"

"I just wanted to give you an update on Nash, from Mocha and Packer's January litter. He went on his first therapy visit last night and saw the children at OLOL Children's Unit. He was the perfect gentleman and got lots of oohs and aahs. At seven months he seemed like an old pro...he was perfectly content to sit with the patients in their beds and on laps. He has to be the most laid back dachshund I've ever had. Thanks so much for making 'temperament' a part of your breeding practice."

Stephanie Has Found Nash a New Companion!
Stephanie J. returned to Splendor Farms to purchase Mocha & Winston's last male piebald puppy (right). For a special surprise she brought Nash (left)
from Mocha & Packer! What a beautiful boy he has turned out to be!
"My boyfriend and I bought a pup from you last year. We were going to name her Dotty but on the way home we decided to call her Audrey, after Audrey Hepburn. Boy is she living up to her name! She is a sweetheart too! Thank you sooo much for a wonderful dog!"

"...you have the most beautiful dogs of any breeder I have seen..."

"I just wanted to let you know that the puppies are doing fine and love their new home. We've named the Red Sable Willie and the Black & Tan Otto. Otto is definitely a mamma's boy and Willie is a rascal. They are just two peas in a pod and do everything together.
I'm glad that I got them both so they have someone to play with when we're at work. Thanks again."
- Odette & Adam
"Paris has been with me for one week now. She has settled in nicely. I found a food that she liked. She gets along well with the other dogs. Each has such a unique personality. Chori accepts her as the boss of him...
...I was very impressed by your farm and the way your dachshunds are cared for. Thank you for this sweet dog."
