Hi Kathy,

It’s been a while since I’ve sent you pictures. Here are a few from over the last year of Nellie (Red x Ruger January 2017). She has settled into being a young dog instead of a puppy, although her personality still shines through. Nellie loves her moose babies, collecting sticks, balancing things on her nose, getting treats from my mom, and (usually) hanging around with her brothers. We swim in the creek every day during summer and take long walks with our cousins. I am a teacher, so Nellie had to be a helper during many of my online social-distancing lessons this year. She even agreed to put on some spirit gear to support my students! Okay, she didn’t like it that much, but she tolerated it. We recently started raising backyard chickens, and she LOVES having a “herd” to watch. Nellie is doing well here in Ohio.

Hi Kathy,

Here are pictures of Aoife (e fa) close to her first birthday.  We have been so busy moving.  We finally have some grass for her.  She is a very strong and determined girl.  She is one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen.  She is also very protective.  Hope you are well and safe during this pandemic, I also hope for an end soon.

Love

Joyce and Gary D.

In memory of Calypso a pup from Calla x Dakota's 2008 litter.  Calypso resided in Virginia Beach, VA with Mike & Polly.  She had a wonderful long life with them.  The photo is Calypso on the beach, what a beautiful picture!

 

 

Kathy,

It is with a very heavy and sad heart that I am writing to you today.

Calypso is no longer with us, having passed away last Thursday on the 19th.

She had been having some difficulty with arthritis in her hips but she still had a wonderful quality of life which we were managing with medication. Unfortunately, last week she digressed very quickly over two days to where we knew it was time. She gently and quietly passed with the family surrounding her in her favorite spot in the back yard.

As we have told you many times over the past 12 years, Calypso is incredible, the most loyal, loving and protective dog that we have ever had. Thank you for bringing her into our lives. She left us with a lifetime of everlasting memories.

Take care,

Mike and Polly

This is Bogey a male pup from Coco x Bo's 12/28/09 litter.  Bogey resides in CA with Ed & Robin.

 

 

Hi Kathy,

So nice to hear from you.  Bogey is doing great.  He's 10.5 years old now.  I took this picture a few minutes ago.

I always think of how you were able to predict his temperament from the time he was 4 or 5 weeks old.  I am so happy we got him.  He's everybody's idea of what a great German Shepherd dog should be.

At 74 I could not handle another dog.  Bogey is easy but he's enough for us.  Robin loves him more than I ever thought she would.

I know my friends the Posts' are very happy with Finn, and are pleased that I suggested they call you.

Best to you Kathy,

Ed

Here is Chaos at 8 weeks of age.  WOW what a transformation!  Such a BEAUTIFUL girl !!!

 

 

Hi Kathy,

Attached are current pictures of Chaos---she is really getting beautiful.

She is the smartest Dog I have ever seen! She also loves everyone, and everyone loves her.

She comes to work with me every day, when I am not traveling. And she enjoys

that too.

She loves the water, and all through the winter she would go into the pool---steps only.

I can’t wait for warm weather when we can all go swimming in the pool---I may never get her out of the water.

Thanks for breeding such a wonderful animal---she is almost human.

Tony

Hello Kathy, 

Just a note to say hello and tell you how rapidly these last three years have passed.  Lol

Hard to imagine Gyda is 3yrs old.

I’m working with a wonderful trainer just on basics but she’s a Search and Rescue, SAR Trainer and Handler.  Apparently the founder of SAR worked with German Shepherds and my trainer has a genuine fondness for Shepherds and Gyda.

She had tried to persuade me to train Gyda for SAR but I’m retired and as much as I know Gyda would love-love SAR, if someone called me at 1am and wanted me to come out for a search, I might have to decline. Hence, I had to decline for now.

Another friend has a Truffle Farm and we plan to take her there within the next couple of weeks for a try at Truffling which sounds more like my speed.

I’ll keep you posted.

 

Happy New Year to you and Willy,

Gwen

Hi Kathy, its been quite a while since we checked in!

Your new German Shepherds, Una and Palo look like awesome German Shepherd dogs! I am sure they will make an awesome litter just as Ava and Ruger have done with their litters.

Attached are three photos of Koa-Ruger from Ruger and Ava's April 2016 litter.  He was the blue collar male in the April 2016 puppy pictures.

I wanted to attached a pic of Koa-Ruger taken on the day that we picked him up from you and also the most recent pics that we have from a couple of weeks ago. As you and others can see he has turned out to be a great looking GSD and one that we often get compliments on when he is out in public with us!

He has turned out to be such a healthy and well mannered GSD and is fully trained. He absolutely loves our Grandkids, family and just loves people in general. As you can see he loves being out in the snow as well! He is such a joy to have around!

I'm sure you will be giving the new puppies, due in the February 2020 Una and Palo litter, all the loving care that you do with all your litters!

Take care and I hope that the February 2020 litter is a big litter with several great looking GSD puppies!

Sincerely,

Glenn and Koa-Ruger
