Hi Kathy,

 

I saw your new boy Palo - he's absolutely stunning! I can't wait to see his first litter. I know it's only been a few weeks since our last update but I kinda was off with his weight. I think I said he was 55+ lbs but in actuality he was probably closer to 75! He was weighed a week ago & is 83 lbs!! He's had another growth spurt & has gone from a lanky boy to a muscled athlete. He has off leash play dates every week & enjoys playing with others. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful loving protector by my side. Thank you for my best friend!

We purchased Palo on August 31, 2019.

 

This is our 4 year old grand-daughter, Olivia with Palo this morning, 09/02/19.  Palo and I walked up the street this morning to go see Olivia, he doesn't even know her as we just had him barely 24 hrs, yet he allows her to love all over him without batting an eye.  His temperament is awesome!!!  One of my friends, Linda made the observation after seeing this photo, that his head is bigger than Olivia's.  He has one of the biggest heads I have ever saw on a German Shepherd and that rich mahogany RED color OMG he just leaves me breathless.  He is awesome in every way.  I couldn't be more pleased!  He exceeds my expectations!  I can't wait to have puppies from him, I will want to keep them all :)  Olivia's already asking if she can keep Palo..the answer to that was NO!  Lol.

Hi Kathy,

Time has flown by and we just celebrated Kaiser's 6 month half birthday!  He's over 55 pounds and developing into the best companion ever!  He's so smart and loves humans and dogs alike.  We have visited a number of state parks together and he loves exploring on a "sniffari".  I can't thank you enough for breeding and raising the HIGHEST QUALITY puppies!  I feel so blessed to have Kaiser.

We were saddened to hear about Kaiser's sister Aspen.  My heart breaks for her family & I hope they are healing.

Here's a few photos of my boy.  I couldn't be prouder of him.  Thank you again & I hope you are having a good summer!

Best regards,

Ruth & Kaiser

Hi Kathy,

Just wanted to make sure you received Charlie's vet receipt from her check up.  She is SO sweet and loving and doing well with most everything.  I hate putting her in her crate while I'm at work, but I work very close to my house so I try to run home mid morning then lunch then mid afternoon to let her potty and so far she's doing very well with no accidents in her crate.  She sleeps good at night too.  She's gonna be a GREAT dog and she's bonding well with me.

Hope you all are well :)

In Loving Memory we honor Aspen Reed 02/14/19 - 6/27/19.

Beloved daughter of Ava x Ruger.  She was adopted by a loving family, Alex, Marsha and boys.  Aspen leaves behind a loving big step brother "Oakley" and 8 other litter-mates including Ryder, Finn, Kaiser, Zyra and Venus.

Aspen's untimely death resulted from a tragic accident where she was accidently ran over while Alex was backing out of their drive.  Aspen's family requested that I remind everyone to PLEASE, double check, when you are backing out of your driveway.  In honor of Aspen please ALWAYS check twice before backing out and make sure your children and pets are where they are suppose to be at ALL times. This can happen to anyone at anytime. 

Until we meet again Aspen R.I.P.  We all LOVE you & miss you !!!

Once an Angel on earth, now an Angel in heaven watching over her beloved family from above.

Kathy,

Its been awhile since we've checked in with you.

Thought you might enjoy seeing one of your older pups.

Calypso is now 11 years old. So hard to believe that much time has passed.

She is doing remarkably wonderful health wise, just a tad slower. But as loving and faithful as ever.

She is without a doubt the best dog we have ever had.

I'm enclosing a couple of pics for you.

As you can see she is a beautiful girl. 

I think she resembles her mother.

Hope all is well.

Take care,

Mike & Polly

Awww Kathy it was so very nice to meet you too and thank you so much for the compliments! Very sweet of you :)

Well Charlie is so very sweet and has quickly realized that I am her mommy she follows me everywhere.  She is a good pup though she is testing me with normal puppy behavior which I haven’t had to deal with for 15 years! She’s going potty outside 95% of the time but that’s only because I’m taking her out frequently. ANYWAY....I love her, she’s so pretty and sweet and playful. Once we get past this puppy stage (if I live that long..haha) she’s definitely an awesome smart great dog! She naps frequently on my floor vents to feel the air conditioning and this old lady is glad she naps alot :)

We went to the vet this morning and EVERYBODY including other people there with their dogs went on and on about what a good looking pup she is including the vet..made me proud :)  Her checkup was perfect and we got flea and tick monthly chewables and monthly heartworm chewables she started them today. They checked her stool for worms etc it was perfect and she is scheduled for her shots (they will call me when I need to bring her in for them)...and will have her spayed in 6 months. We are doing just fine. My dog Sammy that just passed was only 14 lbs and a purebred miniature poodle and they don’t shed....so.....all of Charlie is new to me but we are doing pretty good!!

My son and family came by briefly last night on their way home to Fenton Missouri after visiting relatives in Toledo Ohio and they wanted to see Charlie. They have a gentle giant Bullmastiff called Tank.  I walked over to Charlie and told her it was ok and stood right up against her from them on she was fine.  Oh my gosh I’ve written a book to you..I’m sorry! I’m sending this and will immediately send you some pics in separate emails. Please let me know you got them ok. I will mail you my vet receipt tomorrow just regular mail. I took this whole week off work so I could bond with her.

Take care and thank you for everything,

Karen and Charlie

Hello Kathy,

Another awesome litter on their way.  I LOVED Bill and his new girl.  Kaiser is tipping the scales at 50 lbs !!!  Looking like a mini Shepherd and doing so well.

We had 2 weeks of training and have attended numerous puppy socials to keep him busy & well rounded.  All his trainers rave about how easy to train and how smart he is.  We go out to parks, Home Depot, anywhere I can bring him for experiences.  I always get comments about how good looking he is.  He's so good and loves people and other dogs.  I can't thank you enough for raising such wonderful puppies!  He's the star in my life!

Amazing, she is quiet as a mouse, driving home.  Thank you again for your professionalism and your loving care of these sweet puppies!  I am forever in debt to you, thanks again.  I will take great care of her and you'll have constant updates.  Thanks.  Update:  Second stop walking on leash she knows!  I'm it for her she will be GREAT to train you set them up for success!  Almost to Kentucky.

Blessings,

Hi Kathy,

Just wanted to share this picture with you.  This is Zyra and her wind blown ears, watching our horses waiting on us to give her a command.  She wants off the golf cart, but we are teaching her how to be safe around our herd of horses.  She is such a smart little girl.  And, already so loyal and protective of us.  She is not afraid of anything and really listens to us!  It is very surprising to me as I have never owned a German Shepherd and had NO idea the intellifence and temperament of this breed.  We LOVE LOVE LOVE this girl!  :)

Also, I forgot to mention...Zyra is a talker...she even sighs and grunts when we tell her to "kennel up" and she would rather not!  She is just too funny!  :)  And after bath number 2...she will actually go into the shower on her own when asked.  Poor girl has had a lot of baths due to our ranching activities.  We have not had her on the boat yet...but she appears to really like the water.  We caught her in my dad's pool two weekends ago!  :)

We are really pleased with her and her abilities to keep up with us!  :)  She has been on the go every weekend since we picked her up!  She is an awesome traveler!

Thanks again for such a WONDERFUL puppy !!!

Denise

I'm sure you are busy with your new litter of big girls!  Kaiser was 13 weeks last Thursday and he is changing daily.  He's started to show his big boy fur all over, ears are up and he's got several commands down.  We're starting puppy classes at the end of the month and puppy socials this week.  He's been friendly to all puppies he meets but very protective from behind the fence.  He's happy, healthy and so well adjusted!  I laugh every day and LOVE him to bits!  Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Zyra with her brother from another mother :)

 

Hi Kathy,

Just wanted to share with you Zyra’s transition into her new home. She is an absolute dream!  What a “Great” little girl! She is so sweet and has already bonded to us as well as her big brother from another mother.  Of course, I have to believe the 11 hour truck ride back home provided for a good foundation for establishing our relationships. Nevertheless, Rookie, our European Golden Retriever and Zyra have become pretty good buddies. He absolutely adores her!

This weekend she will be introduced to our ranch and the horses.  I hope she enjoys the ranch life.  She will have to learn a lot of new things to keep her safe, but I am pretty sure that won't be an issue with her.  She already knows her name and comes every single time we call her.  And that is...if we even need to call her.  She generally doesn't leave our side.  She is so smart and confident too!  I have never been around such a brave little puppy.  She already tries to protect us...it is too funny!

We took her to the vet yesterday and everyone oohed and aahed over her…they picked her up, gave her treats, took her picture. The staff along with the waiting customers… all commented on what a beautiful and well-mannered little puppy we had.  In addition, she passed her puppy wellness check with flying colors. The doctor said it more than once what an exceptional job you did in raising such a great puppy!  He really appreciated not only the health of the puppy, but the documentation you provided as well. Therefore, lots of KUDOS to you Kathy!

Being ranch owners we know that raising good quality animals is no easy task and we greatly appreciate your time, hard work and dedication you put into raising Zyra!  

Zyra means = Beautiful and generous, you can look up to her to do what's right.  Perfect inside and out with a touch of toughness.  Great protector, but also a loving one.  Her personality fits this to a tee!

Once again...your commitment in raising "Great" puppies is very much appreciated! 

Hope you have a "Great" and "Blessed" Easter Weekend!

This is Kaiser (blue collar male) from Ava x Ruger's Valentine's Day litter.  Kaiser now resides in Oregon with Ruth.  She drove all the way from Oregon to pick up her puppy with her friend.

 

Hi Kathy,

We got home on Monday the 15th.  He's adjusting so well.  He's been the best little traveler and he's already following me around like my shadow.  He loved his new yard & immediately marked it!

I swear he's grown since we picked him up on Friday.  Thank you so very much!!!

FYI the breeder/trainer where I purchased my former black/red West German male is selling puppies not half as handsome as yours are for $5,500 at 6-10 weeks of age.  I am sending you the link to their website and you check them out because they've got nothing on your dogs.

Kaiser has his first vet appointment today!

Much love to you all including Ruger x Ava.

Ruth

Hi Kathy,

Just dropping a line.  Chester is doing outstanding.  All my neighbors compliment me in regards to his size, gait and temperament.  Every where I take him people stare.  He's almost at 100 pounds.

This is Finn (red collar male) from Ava x Ruger's 2/14/19 litter.  Finn resides in California with David & Susan.

 

Hi Kathy,  Below is a copy of the invoice for our vet visit today.  As you can see, we signed up for the vaccinations, medications, exams, etc. through Finn’s 16th week.  Finn is a marvel!  He comes invariably when we call him by name and the command “come".  He even did so when we stopped in a meadow on our way to the St Louis Airport an hour after we met him.  And most remarkably jumped up and ran to Susan’s seat from a sound and exhausted sleep on the floor of the St Louis Airport floor as we awaited our flight to board, when Susan opened a video of him running to her recorded voice calling him in the meadow!.  He potties on command on the straw; fusses anxiously when he wants to go out to potty on the straw, and has yet to have an accident inside.  He spent the night leashed next to my bedside with barely a peep, although he protested vociferously for 20 minutes beforehand when we tried to crate him next to the bed.  He handled the flights to Sacramento with little fuss.  Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to include him into our family.  We couldn't be more thrilled with this remarkable puppy.  David and Susan P.

Hi Kathy,

She's everything and MORE than I'd hoped for. Thank you so much.  She's already following the boys around like crazy.  We really think a lot of you and appreciate the pride and love you have for your dogs. You're more than a breeder...you're an adoption agency. You've helped us become a bigger (and even happier) family. THANK YOU

Kathy,

I hope all is going well with you! Ruhe is continuing to be fantastic. Had a little vet checkup last week. She is sitting at 63lbs and very healthy! 

We had our baby girl, Adelaide. She is 7 weeks old and also healthy! Ruhe is fascinated by her. The past few weeks have flown by and Adelaide has gotten her fair share of Ruhe kisses. They will be great friends growing up together.

Here are some pictures we have collected. 

The two solo shots were taken on 4/7/2019 after playing in the sun all afternoon!

Dear Kathy & Willy,

I know your hearts are heavy grieving the loss of your dear Chaos.  I hope knowing that what you and your dog family do for all the folks fortunate enough to be blessed with one (or more :) ) of your amazing German Shepherds will bring you comfort.

I just adore Red and Brenley they bring us so much joy.  Can't remember life with out them!  This is not good bye as I look forward to continued communication and fellowship as I consider you a true friend.

XOXO Love,

Kim

Hi Kathy,

I had a training session with an agility/obedience trainer the other day.  She seemed very knowledgeable and yet again bragged~very impressed with my child (Gyda).  You've done such a great job in breeding this fabulous line of German Shepherds!  A lot of damn work, I might add.

Hugs!

We are working with a new trainer tomorrow on agility.  Trying to figure out what to do that will keep Gyda moving and happy.  I had a certified SAR trainer, train her for SAR but decided I didn't want to be in the woods at midnight looking for missing people.  I am too old.  Lol.  She has a great nose.  Take care and say hello to Willy.

Good evening,

Nellie celebrated her 2nd birthday today with her dog brothers (white dog is Nitro, red dog is Shiner) and sister cat is (Riesling).  This year has brought some big changes for Nellie Belle.  Matt and I got married and moved three dogs and two cats together into one home.  Nellie loves them all (usually).  This year she also had her first visit to a professional groomer where she received lots of compliments.  She also learned how to run with me, both on and off leash, as I rollerblade.  We had a great year of health and joy!

Hi Kathy,

Here is our lap dog Lol he doesn't know how big he is!  I LOVE him Kathy!  He is literally my best friend!  He is so intelligent.  It is unbelievable how smart and protective he is and yet he is not aggressive to anyone that comes to our home, but I can tell that he watches everything and everyone.  Not one mean bone in his body that I have seen, but I have seen a protective nature.  When out on the property if I see or hear something, I will say "what is that Ruger" he literally looks every where while circling me the entire time!  I feel so safe with him.  I love him.  Thank you so much for a wonderful dog!

We got a new vehicle (bigger SUV), and today Chester got in it for the first time.  The amount of laughter has my abs hurting.  Chester just couldn't figure out how to get out of the truck.  Finally he just laid down like, "I'm done trying to figure this out".  Lol
