Hi Kathy,  
How is everyone? We are doing just great. We spent the day outside and I took new photos. Thought I would say Hello and update photos. Abbey and Lucas just love going for rides in the golf cart, I only wish it was big enough for all three of the dogs because as you can see in photos they don't want to take turns..... The pups are doing great in training. Mike made a loading ramp for them to get in my truck since they are now too heavy for me to lift and we spent all week on training on the ramp. Abbey just loves it she thinks it's a game.  Lucas is now up to 65 lbs. I think he might just be a BIG BOY..... if he keeps growing at this rate.

I feel like I turned around twice and my little baby grew up.
Hope you have a great weekend.


Take Care,

Rita

Hi Kathy,
Hope everyone is well. We are all great.
Abbey is fine from her spay, she got her stitches out today. Lucas's ears are starting to stand, as I had said I waited because I really did not want to tape them and sure enough this week they have been standing off and on. They are both getting so big, they were both weighed today, Lucas is 55 lbs and Abbey is 44 lbs. They are both sooo.... sweet. Lucas sometimes thinks he is a lap dog.

I'll be sitting on the couch and he comes over puts paws across my legs gives me kisses and I give him a hug and off he goes.  Abbey comes over and sets
her head across my legs I give her a pat on the head and then off she goes.

They are such a joy to have, and ohhh.. sooo... human like sometimes. How are Coco and Anji doing?  Praying for healthy pups.  I'm excited for you.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Take Care and Hugs to All,
Rita

Hi Kathy,
Hope everyone is doing well. I loved the picture of Jimbo in his Devil suit, thank you for sending it to me.  It was great to here from you.  Hope you enjoy pictures of Abbey and Lucas they were taken last week. Lucas is now 40 lbs. and Abbey is 31lbs. They are both growing so fast, they both are loosing their puppy teeth. Lucas's ears are starting to stand. Training is going very well.


I take them to the park everyday for training practice and some 1 on 1 time. Everyone we meet says they are the most beautiful dogs they have ever seen, and very well behaved.

Mike jokes with me and says I'm in advanced stages of puppy talk, everything sounds like a command.  Some days I guess I get Tooooo... involved  !!!!!!!
Hope you have a great Halloween.

Hello Kathy,  

I was just thinking about you and all your babies the other day and I thought I should send you an update on Berlin. I can't believe she is going to be 3 years old this year...my little girl is growing up so fast. She is doing great, up to 82lbs and I love every bit of her. I'm currently getting ready to graduate nursing school to become an RN so I'll have my bachelor's degree in December. I've been checking out townhomes to buy that have a nice little fenced yard for Berlin to roam around in while I'm at work. She truly is my life, everything I do is practically based around her and her needs. Call me crazy but I call myself a great mom -lol- but we are both doing well. I'm attaching some photos of her that I've taken recently. Some of them are after our jog the other day. She was pooped and could barely keep her eyes open on the ride home. She's so cute! I don't know if I have already sent some of them before but if so then you get an extra copy :)   I hope that all is well with you. I checked out your website and saw all your new little pups...so adorable. I'm seriously thinking about getting Berlin a little brother from Bo and Ulta when you have another litter. They are just stunning dogs and I would love one of their pups.   Hope to hear back from you soon :)

Hi Kathy, 

How are you?  We are all doing great.  I updated pictures today, and wanted to show you.  Lucas is at 34lbs and Abbey is at 29lbs. They are both growing so fast. We started training last week and both are doing great. But we will stay with it...We have the invisible fence in and they are both doing great with training its only been about a week now, but they are learning fast. House training has went very well. Abbey and Lucas are such a joy to have, I just can't thank you enough for the great way you raise and breed your dogs (Kids)....I hope everything is going well with your family I will stay in touch.

Hi Kathy!

Well, we’re still going strong!  Look at this little (not for long) guy!  He’s about 32 lbs now, and his ears are trying to get up there, but not much luck yet.  That’s OK, they’ll come along when its time.  Bob snapped this photo about 30 minutes ago… can’t believe how big he’s getting.  Looks like he’s going to be larger than Sasha.  She’s about 87 lbs.

I think you should be getting a photo of Bullet and Sophie at class together from last night.  He wanted to play with her so badly… and only her.  She’s a little character too!  Both are very, very smart!

This is going to be a short one… just wanted to send you an updated pic at his 14 ½ week stage.  We just love him and are so thankful we found you!

Take care!

Hello Kathy!  

Ava (aka) baby girl is doing great!  She has had her last puppy shot, frontlined, and started her monthly heartworm meds.  She was wormed again too and her weight was 23 lbs shes a growing girl and SMART!  I found a wonderful advanced trainer here.  I'm not going to start out with him until she is a bit older doing schutzhund training.  Right now we're starting obedience classes and I signed up for abc dog training school.  I can't wait to start my books s/b here anyday now!   She is a great pup, healthy, and her check up was fine.....everyone that sees her always comments on how good looking she is.  Thank you for all the papers you sent and I will send you some video of her training process she is sooo smart it's unreal.   I hope all is going great for you and if you know of an active gsd club in the area would you let me know.  There is a lot of clubs but it seems like most of them don't do much or have any events. Thanks again,  

Dawn

Kathy,

It's been too long and I wanted to let you know that we are all doing great!!  Everyone is healthy, happy and having fun.  Minos and Lucy went from chasing snowflakes to chasing bugs and butterflies.  Jaxx sits and wonders if he's adopted:). 

Lucy has developed a play drive, she could go for hours at a time.  She is also everyones favorite for a good cuddle.  Lucy will never turn down the opportunity for affection.  She will go thru a testing process in November to allow her to work in a hospital with children.  She seeks out the affection even when we are out with her.

Minos is...well...just the coolest cat, I mean dog you could ask for.  He is incredibly laid back, but knows how to handle himself if necessary.  Hannah says he's like the Fonz, he just snaps his fingers :) and everyone around him settles down.  His deep red color is as stunning in person as it is in the photos.  He is a head turner when we are out with him.  He loves the attention and is always happy when a little one wants to pet him.

Hope all is well there.  Becky is doing great in college and so far loves MO.

Take care,

John

Bogey is our ambassador in the world. Everyone who sees him, comments about how handsome he is. Of course every so often there is someone who is afraid of German Shepherds who will act a bit squeemish around him, but he almost always manages to bring them around!

This is "Bullet" a 8 wk old male puppy from Ulta x Bo.  To the right is "Sasha" a Rottweiler.  Bullet went to his new home on Friday.  He now resides in Wentzville, MO with Betsy and Bob!

 

Hi Kathy,

Bullet has just been wonderful!  He’s sleeping through the night, but gets us up between 4 and 5 a.m. to let us know he HAS TO GO!!   He’s only had about 3 accidents in the house so far.  So potty training is going well. 

He’s 13.5 lbs. and growing like a weed!  He’s eating well, and he loves to play.  He’s been teaching our Rottweiler, Sasha, how to play.  She really didn’t get to socialize much with other dogs and at first she was really leery, yet curious.  It finally dawned on us that she had no clue as to how to play with other dogs.  Bullet has brought her around nicely!   Now they are inseparable.  He’s been really good for her. 

We find it so funny that he hates to go outside in the heat.  He’d rather flop down on top of an air duct and stay cool.  Then he’ll get a burst of energy and coax Sasha into playing with him.  She shares all her toys and will even go get them and drop them right in front of Bullet.

Take care… sure miss your weekly updates!  Have they all gone to their new families yet? 

Anyway, hope you’re well.  It was great meeting you and we’ll stay in touch with updates!

This is Max a 6 mos old male pup from Ulta x Bo.  Max now resides in CT.

Hi Kathy,

Roger told me that Ulta gave birth to 13 puppies this time around,WOW!! What a Gal she is. I hope that everything went along for both you and Ulta. when you get rested and get some spare time ,maybe you could send out some pictures. have a great day, Ken (Roger's Father)   I took these pic's of Max and my Wife (Betty) yesterday with his favorite toy. He is 6 mo's & 2 weeks young and weighs 75 #'s  He is A living Doll  and we all love him so much. He has soooo  much love for everyone.

Thanks for sending the update with the Web site. They are all beautiful, just like Max's litter (all touching each other) Max always wants to be touching one of us, and when he wakes up from his afternoon nap, he loves to climb up in my lap for me to hold him. I'm not sure how much longer I can hold him as he is growing so big and getting very heavy. He sure is a "Peoples Dog" he loves to be around and never likes anyone to go without him. We love him to death and he couldn't be any better, he is wonderful !!  Thanks again, Ken

Kathy – We survived.   Our house wasn’t damaged but my mom and my uncle lost everything.  I was very impressed with Luna as she began whining and pacing 5 minutes prior to the sirens going off.  She hasn’t been scared of storms at all so I knew something was definitely wrong.  Boy was she right.  Once the storm passed she went back to chewing her bone in the bathroom where we were so I knew we were okay.  She is doing great and everyone loves her.  There’s just something magical about German Shepherds that people don’t understand until they have had one.  She has definitely become a cherished member of our family. 

I have attached some pictures for you to see how she has grown!!   She loves water!!  We  can’t keep her out of the water trowel we use for the dogs.

Barbi,

Hi Kathy,  

I hope you are doing well.  I just wanted to update you on Vader.  Actually, he is sleeping next to me as I'm writing this email to you.  He is the most wonderful dog and my new best friend.  I throw the baseball for him for about an hour every night.  Then, he follows me around the yard as I water all my plants.  I can't believe how easy Vader has been to train to stay in the yard and with commands.  He is truly a great dog!  I hope you like the pictures. 

Have a good night.  

Love,

This is "Wolf-Gang" a 4 mos old male pup from Coco x Bo.

Wolf-Gang now resides in California.

Hello Kathy,

Thanks for the photo! The gift is so sweet :)  Maher says you remind him of a mother whose son went off to college hahaha I'm doing alright, the trip was incredibly long and my work schedule has been super hectic since we got back, we have a week-long design conference in the city next week so from now until Tuesday I am going to be working to get all of my work done before the conference begins so I can focus on the conference. In the meanwhile, Maher is working on training Wolf-Gang. 

He loved his crate on the trip here but we decided to exchange it for another one when we got back, it's a slightly different style and for the last couple of days he wanted absolutely nothing to do with the new crate. Today out of the blue he has started to go into the new crate, take his toys in there, take a nap, watch us and watch TV from in the crate etc.

I also wanted to tell you that as per our contractual agreement, we went to the vet today - Where do I begin? The Dr and his staff were sooooo impressed with how incredibly the paperwork was organized by you. There was not a single question they had that you didn't provide a documented answer for. They said that he has been taking the best preventative medications, (Interceptor, heart worm preventative) vaccines, etc., all at the appropriate times and they even took down your name and phone number so they can pass it along the next time someone asks about a good German Shepherd breeder. They said that you really knew what you were doing and we are very proud to pass that compliment along to you.

Wolf-Gang has lost 2 teeth so far. There is a third one that's going to fall out any minute now. We have both teeth and are hoping we can get the third one without him swallowing it. We got him a chilly bone, you wet it and stick it in the freezer then give it to him to aleviate his oral discomfort. He likes it and really likes his large green and yellow duck which sounds like it has a plastic bag in the wings and has a subtle squeeker in its butt. He does really well in the car and went inside Petco with us today to exchange the retractable leash for a leader leash. We keep a bowl and a large bottle of water in the car so that he has water available if he needs it and has not had a potty accident since he got here!

He has yet to be trained on the psychiatric services that we originally got him for since that training starts at 18 or so months but its as if he knows what he's supposed to do instinctively. He stays close on walks which helps Maher with his balance, he sleeps on the floor beside Maher and gives him a nudge whenever Maher gets restless or uncomfortable in his sleep and in the car. Maher has not had a nightmare since we got Wolf-Gang and that is a miracle within itself. There has not been a day in the last 10 months that he did not have a nightmare about the accident. They are already incredibly well bonded and Maher feels like he now has a purpose again. Before Wolf-Gang, Maher was very depressed and anxious and spent a lot of time by himself, now he spends the days taking care of Wolf-Gang and absolutely enjoys every minute of it! He wakes up at 5:00 am and takes him on a walk so he can go to potty and the smile that I once feared had disappeared for good is finally back.

Hope you and Willy are doing well.

Regards,
Samar H.

Hello Kathy,

I just wanted to send you an email to thank you for Wolf-Gang and taking so much care to pack some extra food and toys for him, they were very useful on the road. We safely arrived in the bay area last night at around 6:00 and have been incredibly pleased with how well Wolf-Gang has acclimated himself to our home and lifestyle. Wolf-Gang is incredibly happy with Maher, he listens to every word Maher says and is very protective of him. In fact I think he likes Maher more than me haha He lets us know when he needs to potty and sleeps on the floor beside him. He sits when we tell him to sit and stays when we tell him to stay.

I was truly impressed when I was making sandwiches in the car and saw that he didn't even try to come near our food. Thank you, once again for everything.

I am sure that Wolf-Gang will be as happy with us as we are with him.

Regards,
Samar + Maher

Hi Kathy, Jett and I are doing great. He is always getting compliments. A lot of people tell me his the best looking GSD they have ever seen. He is great with small animals, and even better with kids. He always let's me know if someone at my house. His bark is getting deeper and it is very intimidating to anyone who doesn't know him. Jett goes everywhere with me.  Here are some pictures I took with my phone. Jett likes to hang with me when I work on cars and he loves my neice. I will send you some more pictures soon. And I keep telling my brother to get a pup from you, I told him about the one you have. I will let you know what he thinks. Thanks!

Hi Kathy,
Gemma is 45 lbs now. She finished her two week obedience school a few weeks ago in Dallas. The trainer was really impressed with her. When he brought her home, his first words were, " I bet you paid alot for this pup."  He was referring to her pure West German bloodlines.  He says he hardly ever sees one, and he sees alot of dogs.  She is doing great. We love having her in our family. Hope all is well.

An "Oh my God moment"...

Flowers and candy arrived this morning on 5/05/11 from Ginger and "Pee Wee" AKA "Gunner" from Hillsboro, MO.  It was a complete OMG moment!  NEVER in my life have I received flowers and candy from one of my babies!  Thank you soooo much!

The card reads...

TO:  Mama's ULTA & Kathy,

Thinking of you both this Mother's Day, and just want to say "THANKS,...for everything!"

Your Pee Wee

a.k.a. Gunner Alexander Vom LaGrange

My email sent to Pee Wee (Gunner) and Ginger....

Dear Ginger and Pee Wee,  

I about fell out of my chair as I am updating my website with new pics of Pee Wee's brother Dirk in Southern MO. I hear a Fed-Ex truck pull in and I know I didn't order anything so Willy goes out and I said what is it?  I figured my daughter ordered something as she uses my address at times when she knows I am home. Willy came into my room with a big box and I seen "flowers" on the box and immediately I am saying "WHAT DID YOU DO!" He looks at me all scared and says I didn't do it!  So then we open the box and I seen it was from Pee Wee and you and I burst into tears, NEVER in my life had I EVER received flowers from anyone other than Willy or my daughter. Thank you soooo much, that means sooooo much.  A pic of the flowers is going on the "gallery" page.   That was sooooo sweet of you, my gosh I cannot believe it!   Then to get this I am so happy, thank you sooo much!   Hugs and love to you and Pee Wee.  I feel so honored!  

Love, Kathy  

P.S.  I will share the flowers with Ulta :) Her birthday was May 01st.  :)

Hi Kathy,

Thought I would send you some new photos.  As you can see Jaxx is getting big.  He just had his 4 month physical and everything was fine.  The three get along so well and love to play in the backyard together.  Jaxx is learning quickly from Minos and Lucy (both good and bad;)).  We have a lot of bird varieties here, including a hawk and eagle preserve down the road.  The pups love to look up in the sky and chase the bald eagles.  It's quite a site to see Jaxx run after one, forget to look down and run into the fence.  Minos just stands and watches him like he's a fool!!  I'm attaching a sure sign of spring.  Took this picture today of our cherry tree with one of our mated Orioles.

Take care,

John

Below is an email from "Gunner"  :)  Gunner now resides in Hillsboro, MO with his new mama Ginger.  Ginger has the luxury of taking "Gunner' to work with her everyday!

 

Dear Mama Kathy & Willy~ Quick update...Mom Ginger just wanted so share a pic with you.  I'm most difficult to take pictures of, cuz I move to darn quick!!  (Uggghhh!) Tomorrow we are planning on stopping by Dr. B's place so mom can drop off duck eggs, and plop me up on the scale for our latest weight. Frogs are fun and fascinating.  I toured the feed mill tonite (good smells) and helped pick out a couple new chicks to bring home.  Tonite when mom wouldn't let me be a helper and go in the goat/duck/chicken yard with her (because it's a messy, muddy flood zone in there) I surprised and tickled her with a "bark" from the other side of the fence while I watched..."hey, you forgot me."  Actually, that was my 2nd "bark" of the day.  The first came when ANOTHER,(hello?) St. Louis County K-9 guy had to stop by for decals for his car, and of course, to see me.  Let's see....that's #4 now.  We went outside (in the drizzlin' rain) to see if I had to go potty and show off a bit.  The police car sat there running, and I plopped my butt down and just observed it.  Closely enough to know there was something in it.  I let out a yap, I mean "bark."  I keep these "tough guy cops" just a grinning with all my "coolness." Hope you all had a good Easter, and all is well back home. Will chat later, Lotsa puppy love to all, your pen-pal & boy, Gunner Alexander Vom LaGrange  :)

Hi Kathy and Willie,    

Wanted to touch base with you to let you know that Max is doing incredible. He is growing like crazy, eating and sleeping well, and enjoying everybody he gets to play with. He absolutely loves water (dove right into the water on the pool cover!!)  He loves sticks... in fact, each time we take him on a walk, he will bring back a new one!! He absolutely loves when I take him on hikes in the woods and no matter how long he is outside, he usually does not want to come back in. He steals my socks and wash cloths, but has yet to damage anything we own :)  We just cant get enough of Max..he is the coolest ever!!

Sorry for not reaching out sooner. It's been a blast with the three pups, but has kept us very busy!!  Jaxx is fitting in well.

Dear Kathy & Willy, OMG!!  Could not have asked for a better day with him at work.  Really expected him to cry and fuss upstairs on the sunporch where I leave him. Nada!  Over the last couple days he has fallen in love with his crate here at home, and so, loves that one too.  Had my closest work friends by to see him.  They were taking pics with their phones, for peties' sake!    Of course, I play the radio for him and I think that helps.  At lunchtime, we walked the trail as it was a gorgeous day.  We walked the mile loop, yes, a mile!  Had about 4 people stop to ask about and pet him.  He met a cute little boston terrier along the way. ( Have I mentioned how much I love him?)  He and Polly were so cute tonite when we got home.  She pouted when we left, wouldn't take her biscuits...just dropped them on the floor.  It's so nice out, so I've left the back door open so they can go in and out.  He's a riot!  It's clear he is getting truly comfortable and feeling safe here with his new family...he's starting to think he owns the joint!  He snuck one of his new toys outside, just a prancing like he really pulled something off.  Too darn cute. Hope you got the pics.  They aren't the best, but I hope, and am kinda' sure I'll get more! Sure hope things are going well up your way...you're in our thoughts! Ginger

"Dirk" a male pup from Ulta x Bo.

Hi Kathy,  

These photos were taken the 16th, March. I think Dirk has expanded on his body length since these pictures. He is a tyrant in a very good way. He started barking his 3rd day with us and will not hesitate to let you know. He loves the water, boy does he. 

Very smart, will sit and will obey the down command with a treat or without a treat. He is the center of attention in our home and gets plenty of it.

He listens very well, told Janet we should get obedience school set up, we both agreed he will probably not need it.

Will send more Pics in about 2 months.

Have a good day,

Bob

email from Dirk's owner March 16, 2011...

Hi Kathy,

Just to let you know, Dirk seen the vet yesterday and he got his Kennel cough shot and is due back in 3 weeks for his final puppy shots. He now weighs 30lbs and the vet said he was doing good. Of course you probably knew that anyway. He was so good in the waiting room. He just sat there at my feet while all the other customers where trying to control their pets, people were amazed.

He doesn’t whine in his kennel anymore.  The wife is attached to him. Those ears are something else.

I will take some more pictures and in about two months I will send an updated picture.

Have a good day and enjoy the weather!!

Bob

Hi Kathy,

My internet at home is not working right now so I thought I’d send you a quick note from work. The pink bone collar was a nice touch, my mother really liked it. Thank you. When I got her out of the crate in the parking lot she clung to me. I sat down on the black top with her in my lap for at least 20 minutes. It was really nice to be able to pick her up at the Lansing airport. The whole family went to pick her up. Except my brother who had to work. He met us at home for the home coming party. So far everything has gone well. My brother's first comment was “she’s got a brain!” You surely can tell that, she sees everything. The only way it would have been better is if I could have gotten her little brother too. Something about him really stuck with me. He has a look in his eyes that just calls to me. I hope you find a wonderful home for him. If I come into any money you’ll be hearing from me.  Pictures will be coming soon. She is awesome.  My old guy Tucker is coming around to her too.  Thank you for all you done. You can tell you spent a lot of time with her.

Hi Kathy,

Pic taken today of Gemma at 11 wks she weighs 22 pounds.  I wanted you to see those ears she really works them. She is so attentive wants to understand whatever I am saying to her. She is already so protective of our home. If someone drives up her ears go up and as soon as they get out she barks and growls at them until I tell her it's ok. That is unbelievable at eleven weeks old.

We are extremely happy with her.

"Charlie"

Hi Kathy,
 
Just wanted to send you a few pictures of Charlie.  She is doing great!  I love her so so much she is such a good puppy.  We are having tons of fun with her and she is so smart and attentive.  She follows me around everywhere and seems to love my slippers way more than any of her other toys.  Her and Roxi get along great.  They play all day long take a nap eat their food then go back to playing its so cute to watch.  Just wanted to say thank you again for her,  I'm so happy to have her in my life and everybody loves her.  She is doing great with her potty training!  She is already scratching at the door when she is ready to go out!  I'll be sending you more pictures as she gets bigger now that I found my camera cord, sorry it took so long to get these firsts one out.  I hope all is well with you.  Have a great day!

Hi Kathy, hope all is well and all your puppies are finding loving 
homes. We would like to introduce you to Hero (aka BoBo, blue color).  
Hero has been a blessing. What a wonderful pup. He is the center of 
attention everywhere he goes. He has been to the vet and received a 
full check up and also been to a birthday party for Zen (a yellow Lab) 
that just turned 5 years old. He does great around other dogs and 
people. Hero and Sushi, our cat, have found common ground and get 
along great, a bit of rough housing on Hero's side but they both love 
to chase each other around. His training has been going outstanding.

He is almost fully house trained. He is so smart and engaged that he does pretty much anything you tell him to, from sit, lay down, stay, come and heeling. 
All off leash. He is extremely Bill-Jac motivated and has a high toy 
drive as well. His favorite is beef/chicken wrapped rawhide treats. We 
couldn't hope for a better companion. He is so cute as the pictures 
attached prove and his ears are almost fully standing up.

Thank you so much for giving us our boy Hero. 
Ben & Cory W.

Dear Kathy ( and Willie!),         

I found myself surfing the web one day looking at GSD sites missing our recently lost best buddy. After viewing many sites, I found myself convinced that the beautiful shepherd in which our family recently lost, could never be compared. I clicked on your web site and was just in awe staring at BO. He looked so proud, so healthy , and happy, a perfect example of this noble breed. Each move I made with my mouse exposed more incredible works of art. Every animal had that happy and healthy look in their eyes. I read one of  the many poems on the site and I knew right away that you guys understood the love and grief that is part of life. There is a fear of purchasing an animal miles away. The normal worries were removed instantly when I talked with you on the phone. You love your animals beyond words. I knew without a doubt that I had found the place that my family would be getting our next puppy. Bo and Ulta's litter surprised everyone with 12 pups. These numbers created, a fight for the babies survival , in the hands of Ulta, You and Willie. This would be a 24 hour around the clock scramble to preserve the lives that you have incredible passion for. Against all odds, your love for these animals shined through, as each puppy survived and flourished in your care. Even after many consecutive all nighters, you took the time to keep us updated with full letters and pictures. By the time I had to pick, I felt I knew each puppy personally, thanks to your thorough and honest communications. When my puppy arrived, after flying many hours, he greeted all of us with many kisses! I was amazed to see that you had taught him his name and to sit, considering the swarm of little ones in your care!!. I could instantly see that all the things you had told us about him were clearly true. With us, was a gorgeous puppy that was the friendliest most secure little German Shepherd I have ever had. The genes in this puppy are amazing to witness first hand. He slept through his first night here and has ever since. He is easily taught and has learned to lay down, retrieve, and give his paw all within the first week. He started barking when people knocked on our door the third day he was here. This puppy is locked onto us and looks us right in the eye waiting for instructions. He is the happiest little guy anyone could ever ask for. We are truly blessed that we found you guys!!..And we are truly blessed that Max is in our lives!..Thank You Kathy, Thank You Willie..and of course Bo and Ulta!!.. 

Roger, Cindy & Family from CT!.

This is a book written by one of my customers, Karen who came down on 2/19/11 and purchased "Sheba" a female pup from Coco x Bo's litter.  In this book Karen shares her journey with her beloved "Chelsea" a German Shepherd dog which passed away Jan 07, 2009.  I received a copy of Karen's book in today's mail and what a gift!  I will cherish it always.  Thank you Karen.

Karen signed the inside of my book.  She writes...

"Dear Kathy, Willie, Bo, Coco & family,

Mourning the loss of a pet is never easy, and I thought I would never be able to love another GSD the way I loved Chelsea after two years of missing her, I started searching the web looking at GSD puppies.  It was then that I came upon your website.  Looking at the gorgeous GSDs you have posted sparked a desire to investigate further to learn more about them.  I loved the photographs, descriptions, customer emails, organization, frequent updates...It showed you, Kathy-a very loving, intelligent, kind and caring person.  I thank you so much for Sheba.  I fell in love with her the minute I saw her.  Please enjoy this book and know that because of you, I am loving again.

Sincerely,

Karen"

Hi Kathy,   I hope you like the pictures of Vader.  We love Vader so much.  Jax and Vader play together every day and night for hours.  Vader has easily transitioned into our family's routine.  He sleeps all night in his crate.  When we come home every night, he is super excited to see all of us, and he follows us around the house.  Also, he has been easy to potty train!  Thank you again for everything.  What a great job you did with this fantastic puppy!!!!

Glad to see all the puppies doing so well. 

Lucy and Minos are doing really well.  Very healthy, happy and good natured.  Took just a few quick update photos, but I'll send you some other pics a bit later.  Minos is at about 75lb and Lucy at 68.  Getting big, but still with such a great temperament and drive to please. 

Be Well,

This is "Deutsch" a male 8 wk old pup from Bo x Coco's litter.  Deutsch now resides in O'Fallon, MO with Stacey, Mike, James.

Deutsch is getting acclimated, and is on his way to his first puppy doctor appt even as I type.  How did you want the information sent to you?  Do you have a fax?    Registered him this morning, so he is official!  He is doing SO well.  No accidents, and he wakes us up in the morning (granted, that is early at times) to go potty.  We take him right out, and we're good to go.  Dutchie has his own pillow, however, he always winds up sleeping between Mike and I, or nuzzled in my arm somehow.  He's even figured out how to let me know it's potty time throughout the day.  He'll whine, and dance around like "hey lady, I gotta go!".  LOL   On our trip home Wednesday, we stopped each time he woke up from his naps, anticipating his need to relieve himself, and he's already picking up on the heeling while on the lead naturally.  This baby is going to be a breeze to train!   Oddly enough, our cat, Max, is his closest friend so far.  Max likes to play rough, and so does Deutsch.  The other dogs are getting used to him, albeit slowly.  I call it a work in progress.    We've gone 3 times to Petsmart to let him pick out toys.  He's got his own little toy "box", and knows where to go to get what he wants.  Boy, he LOVES tennis balls!  It's hilarious to watch him play puppy "soccer" with those.   Our sweet angel knows his name, but sometimes, he just ignores us if he has something more interesting that he's doing.  It's like a 2 year old walking on 4 legs instead of 2.  We understand, and are patiently working with him.  Our neighbor across that street has the neighborhood "mascot", a black lab, who thinks Deutsch is the best thing since sliced bread.  They run and romp around constantly.    I can't thank you enough for sharing your babies with us.  Don't tell my hubby, but I'm thinking I want another one!  Dutchie is missing his littermates, and someone to constantly play with.   LOL.  Michael would totally adjust.  He works under the premise that if Momma ain't happy, there ain't nobody happy.  ;-)   I'll send more pics soon, and touch base.  Let me know if I can fax the vet thing to you.  In the meantime, take care!   Stacey

Jett and baby---Awww how cute!!!

 

Got snow???

 

Jett relaxin' in the snow...

Hi Kathy,

Coco's pups look great.  Wow I didn't see Ulta's pups until now, they are beautiful. Here are some pics of Jett, he is 7 months old now and weighs 70lbs. He is getting smarter and smarter. My one year old niece and Jett are good buds, they love each other. My parents (especially my mom) weren't that great with dogs but now they just love him so much. He loves the snow here, he always runs outside and sticks his whole head right down in there haha. He is a lot of fun to have around. Some of these pics were from about a month ago and some are pretty recent. I decided to wait to get Jett neutered. When he is a year old I will take him. Jett is such a great pup, I love hanging with him. Everybody that meets him loves him too because he is just so nice to people. Anytime people are interested in getting a gsd I always give them your website, you have some very nice dogs!

Hi Kathy,
Everyone here is doing well.  Minos and Lucy went to the vet on Thursday to be spayed and neutered.  Both are doing great and its business as usual.  Hannah loves to take pictures and she has a unique perspective when she does.  She got hold of the camera and took some of the pups that I wanted to send along.
Your new pups are beautiful.  Hope you are finding a rhythm and getting some sleep.
Have a Happy New Year.
John, Chalice, Hannah, Rebecca, Minos and Lucy

This is "Chief" a year old male from Coco x Bo's December 2009 litter.

"Chief" now resides in Illinois.  "Chief" just turned a year old on 12/28/10.

Hi Kathy.

"Chief" is doing really well.  We were home for a week around Christmas visiting my parents and "Lakota." (Dad's dog) They didn't do to bad together, although we have to keep them in different sections of the house. 

"Chief" is still a sweetheart though.  Still a very gentle and affectionate dog. Heather just had twins and "Chief" was amazing around them (I was shocked). He just sniffed their heads and was very easy around them.

He loves to play and loved the snow. He had a heck of a good time during December. The picture below is actually from a movie of him playing in the snow.  I'll send u a bunch more if I get my computer working.
