This is "Bear" a 7 mos old male pup from Calla x Dakota.


Kathy, Bear is such a joy! I'm so glad Melissa has him. She has grown so much, and is so good with him. He does commands with just hand signals. Melissa loves taking him out to places, he's so social and loves the attention. The manager of our local farm & home makes it a point to come down and visit anytime Melissa & Bear come in. It's his favorite "toy store". Melissa hands out your cards to anyone who may be interested in a beautiful GS. It's so comforting that he's with the girls when they go out. Even though he's playing or exploring....he's constantly checking on Melissa to make sure all is right. We just love him!  He loves to jump up on my king size bed and lay with me, and he always has plenty of kisses for me. Funny thing....he loves to watch "COPS" and "K-9" on tv!  What a hoot! 

Take Care!

Gemma's First Birthday Bash...

This is "Gemma" a 1 yr old female from Calla x Dakota

Oh so cute, "Gemma" and Andrea getting a BIG birthday hug!!!


I LOVE this picture the most, "Gemma" and Andrea. One word...priceless.


Hi Kathy !!!!!!


How are you doing??  I wanted to share Gemma's first birthday pictures with you.  Can you believe she is a year old???  The year flew by.....about a year ago now we were checking out your website (probably 100 times a day !!!!).   Gemma or GiGi for short is the love of our life.  Her training really kicked in within the last month.  I have noticed that as she turned a year she was really able to focus on what I was asking her.  She watches my face for cues on what I want her to do next.  I am SO proud of her.  We take a lot of long walks together......I am the proud parent when she is walking at a heel with me.  She is VERY focused.  She makes me want to walk more just to show her off !!!!!  Her brother Duke is doing better...we think he ruptured a ligament in his knee and he may need surgery.  It breaks my heart because he wants to play with Gemma and he can't run with her.  Gemma being the sweetheart that she is lays on the floor and plays with him while he lays down.  She is still forever guarding the kids....she is so in love with the kids.  Her day begins when they come home.   As always thank you for such a wonderful dog.....you truly produce the most beautiful, intelligent loving German Shepherds I have ever seen.   


Andrea, Nick, Maddie and Dominic

Subject:  WOW

That would be the first word I think of when I look at your dogs...WOW. Just wow...I had a gorgeous male GSD when I was around 9 or so, Dad brought him home, and I ADORED that dog, he was AMAZING in temperament, we had foster children that were less than nice to him (which eventually led to Mum giving him away because she feared he'd turn on a child, and he never did, but she wanted him to be treated better) and he was NEVER less than awesome. He slept by my bed every night. I miss him to this day. IF I EVER could buy another one, no matter how long it took me to pay for one, YOU would be my top choice, your dogs are not only gorgeous but SOOOO well bred, you can see it@! I'd definitely be honored! Just wanted to say WOW WOW WOW! :o)   ~~Jen

After a hard day's work of watching the kids, protecting the house, its time for some rest.  Gemma what a magnificent dog!!!


Hi Kathy,   


It has been a while since I had a chance to sit down and say "hello."  The dust has settled now that the kids are back in school !!!!!  Our little Gemma....what can I say...she is the love of our life.  She is the sweetest dog ever !!!!!  She is such the superstar at her vet...they adore her.  One of the vet techs brings in treats for her when they know she is coming in.  My vet and all the assistants constantly tell me what an awesome dog she is.  Man....I am PROUD !!!!!  She has excelled in her classes, LOVES kids and other dogs. She still has her protective nature...early morning bark alerts to let any neighbors know she is out.  We still call her "hot stuff."  In one of the pictures I sent you she has her head through the rungs of the deck.  What she is doing is watching Dominic as he is on the dock fishing.  She will not rest if those kids are outside and she is not.  In the evening they like to ride their bikes outside....she will lay in the front yard and watch them until they are ready to come in.  I feel so much better having her out there with them...no one would ever hurt them with her around !!!!!!

Her 1st birthday is coming up and we are going to have a party for her...I'll send you the pics.  Hope all is well with you...I love to look at the other puppies...Bear is really cute and reminds me of Gemma.  I think Gemma's head shot looks a lot like Dakotas....with her personality all Callas. Great Dogs !!!!!! 

Talk to you soon, Andrea & Family.

Here she is:  Zoey at 2 years old and still just as beautiful as ever, but
still a lazy sitter!  Zoey is 75 lbs now and I really think has reached her max weight but every one of those 75 lbs is almost all muscle. What a strong lassie.  I just love her.  Maybe someday I will be able to get another one and if so you can be sure it will be you I turn to and no one else.

"Bear" a gorgeous pup from Calla x Dakota


Hey Kathy,

Here's some new photos of Bear.  Barron is very protective over me, he doesn't like it when anything gets near me, which is why I always take him with me while I'm outside, especially at night when I'm turning the horses out, its cute because he doesn't let the horses get too close to me, he stands back to back with me and takes them on head on, and barks very loudly, and if they keep coming he'll lunge and nip at their hooves till they back up, lol hes so cute. (He's displaying his herding instincts.)  After all, he's only 5 months old.

And he's doing VERY well in class, he's very smart, and usually gets what I'm teaching him right off the bat, he's a little angel. I'm so proud of him. I got some new pictures of him yesterday, he wanted to go splash in the pond lol which was adorable, but not so much when it was bath time lol

But all and all, hes doing great, and shaping up to be a well adjusted, protective, beautiful dog, and I wouldn't trade him for the world!

Thanks for bringing us together Kathy!

Take care,

Hello Kathy,  

I thought I would just give you an update on Diesel.  He is still doing just great.  He never has accidents in the house.  Our old Sheltie just passed away last week and we are thinking of keeping Diesel as a house dog to take her place since he is so good in the house.  I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate him and you for raising such beautiful, intelligent dogs!  The picture I attached is from 2 weeks ago and he has already grown by leaps and bounds since the picture was taken.  We'll keep you updated.  Hope alls well.

Thanks again!!!!

Enjoy the pictures! Hope your weekend was wonderful!

"Ava" a pup from Anji x Chaos.  Beautiful girl!!!


Dear Kathy,  

Thank You for my new Family and home........I Love it here, I have lots of toys, a grass yard, and a swimming pool. I love the water, when the sprinklers come on I like to run around and roll around, and I have been swimming three times.   Lindy took me to the Vet. a few weeks ago, he is the strong silent type and he said that I was one of the very best German Shepherd's he had ever seen and that someday I should have puppies to pass on the gene pool, I really like my new doctor.   I miss all of you but wanted you to know that I am very happy and am attaching some pictures.......  

Love Ava

Ava is a pup from Anji x Chaos, she now resides in AZ.

AWWWWW Marcus guarding his dishes with one paw in the water!




I apologize for not writing to you sooner but I’ve been so busy getting to know my new puppy Marcus.  Let me start off by saying, HE’S ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!!   Not to mention, I also get so many compliments on how beautiful and well behaved he is.   I did take him to the vet last night for a check up and he did absolutely wonderful.  No problems at all, perfect health!  The Vet said that he’s remarkably well tempered and in great shape.  So as promised, here are some pictures of Marcus…  I hope you enjoy them.  Ken is a great photographer by the way!  A lot of people tell me that I’m very lucky to have a puppy like Marcus.  I’ve only known Marcus a little over a week now, but I can confidently say that I wouldn’t trade him for anything else in the whole world.  He’s absolutely amazing, lovable and someone I can call my own.  I hope all is well with you and the rest of your family!   Thanks so much!  I’ll be sure to keep you posted on how we are doing.



Take Care,

"Harley" and Shannon under the sprinkler.  "Harley" is a pup from Anji xChaos.




Hi Kathy,

Just thought I'd give you another update. Harley is doing great! I went outside on Saturday to let Harley out for the bathroom and decided to water the yard while I was out there. I go out, set it up, and as I walk back to adjust the hose, I told both Harley and Shannon not to go in the water. I turned around, and BOTH of them had made a run for it and were running through the sprinkler! I was laughing so hard I couldn't even scold them. Here are a few pictures--I was able to snap between giggles. Shannons pants were so wet they were falling off. Harley got tired and laid in the shade, soon after that she rolled in the dirt and had to go back in the sprinkler for a shower. I hope you laugh as hard as I did.

"Kaya" in the lake.


Hi Kathy,

How are you?! I know it has been quite some time since I have emailed you and sent some recent pictures of Kaya ~ we have had a very busy past few months...but, we just took Kaya down to the lake, and I have some great pictures that I knew you would love to see. Kaya absolutely loves water and swimming, I don't think she would ever get out if we didn't make her. It is a riot watching her play in the water. She is doing great, healthy as ever and so much fun. I count my blessings every day having her, I couldn't imagine her not being around...she is definitely a huge part of our family. I have seen the recent pictures of the puppies -and they are so cute! It makes me want another one! :) But, I hope you are doing well ~ and are having a great summer. I will be sure to send more updates and pictures.   Hannah (Kaya's sister) is doing great...I saw her a couple of weeks ago. My parents are coming down in a month or two, and will be bringing her along - so I will be sure to take pictures of both of them, and send them your way!  

Talk to you soon, Kate

This is "Misha" a female pup from Anji x Chaos.  (AKA orange collar)


Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner but Misha keeps me pretty busy.
We are working on potty training.  Mitch, our male German Shepherd had been a little reserved with her, but he started playing with her yesterday, of course she and Pepe have been playing ever since I brought her home and Venus well as I told you before she doesn't play with anyone,although thanks to Misha (she kept sniffing her behind and  I wondered why) I checked Venus and she has a small tumor on her rear, she's going to the vet Thursday with Misha. Misha starts out sleeping with us but then she gets down in the middle of the night and sleeps close to Mitch.

I will send you some pictures when I get some good ones, hopefully Thursday.

Have a Blessed day



Maria picked up "Misha" on the 10th of July, 5 days later this pup "Misha" is "sniffing out" a tumor on one of Maria's other dogs.  Amazing!  Anji has a nose on her that's unbelievable, she can track anything!  Way to go Misha!!!  What a beautiful girl!!!  Update:  Thanks to Misha Venus' tumor was caught just in time!

She was swimming laps - trying to encourage Titan to do the same.  He
sat on the step and looked at her like she had lost her mind.

Hi Kathy,  

Just took a few more pictures for you to have. Today was a really good day! Harley seemed right at home, and did very well with potty training, she's a fast learner. Mark came home today from the field for a shower, and absolutely loved her. She rode with me in the truck when I went to go get him, and she slept in his lap the whole way home. She sleeps by our front door, almost like she is protecting us. Its very comforting. We did get her a big bed, which are in the pictures, but she mostly sleeps by the front door or by the couch when we are on it. Shannon loves playing with Harley. She figured out how to squeeze Harley's toys to make them squeak, so her and Harley play for hours. Attached are some pictures of Harley and Shannon playing together and Harley chewing on a rawhide with her favorite squeaky toy.
Thanks again for everything! She is a wonderful puppy!

We'll be keeping in touch,

"Harley" Anji x Chaos' 8 week old female pup~she was flown to Texas today!



Harley is everything thing I wanted and more! The first thing she did when I pulled her out of the crate was lick my face! She is so sweet!

I had a 3 hr lay-over in St. Louis and I sat in the bathroom with her for an hour and a half so she could stretch out, get some water and lots of TLC. She did amazingly well on the airplane. She didn't pee in my bag at all!

Once we finally landed in Killeen there was a grass spot that I put her on and she pee'd for like 5 minutes! haha I was very proud that she could hold it that long. When we got in the truck, I put her on the passenger side and climbed into my seat, and within seconds, she was laying in my lap resting her head.

Harley loves my daughter. She was following Shannon around the house and loving and kissing all over her. The cats we are still working on. They aren't too fond of her, but when they hiss at her she barks back like she is showing them who is the boss. She is so intelligent too. We got her a few squeeky toys and tug ropes and she has been entertaining herself with them since we got here. She is already making herself right at home. Mark hasn't gotten to meet her yet because he is out in the field, he won't be back for 2 weeks, unless he gets a shower break. He asked me how she was and all I could say is that she was Amazing and Absolutely wonderful. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. She is perfect in so many ways, and is amazing beyond my expectations. Here is a picture of her asleep at my feet as I type this. I'll try to send a pic of her with the whole family soon!  

Thank you a million times again!

"Bear" a 16 week old pup from Calla x Dakota's litter.


Hey Kathy! Those pups of Anji and Chaos' are so cute! I hope you keep one back. I'm gonna take Bear to the 4H/fair next week. 

Anyways, Bear is doing great, he has puppy class tonight.  Friday he went to the Veterinarian's office and got the rest of his shots and some wormer etc. He weighed 41.8lbs, the vet couldn't believe how well mannered he was (and how big lol) So he did well, hopped right up on the scale when I told him too etc. But he did good.

And then yesterday I took him his buddy Specky up to the lake, where I got some pictures of them. Bear just loved it, it was cute because he got hot, and went into the lake and laid down in the shallow park of the lake, it was so cute. So I wish I could have gotten some better ones, but there was a horrible sun glare, and my lens wasn't clean. But I think they turned out alright. It was cute because he let his buddy Spec have a turn drinking, totally cute.

Anyways, better go get him ready to go in a couple hours, take care!

"Zoey" a Calla x Marco pup from Sept 2006 litter.  21 mos old.





Hi Kathy,

Just got home from a visit up North with my boys.  I can't remember if I
sent these but will do it again.  Zoey at 21 months old.  What a sweetheart
she is; everyone loves her and she gives it all back.  She is healthy as can be.  She is 72 pounds. I can remember when I was so worried about her not eating enough now I look back and laugh.  I like the new puppy pictures you sent, are
they all sold?  If not, I'm sure they will be before long.


Take care my friend I am thinking about you.

Chris and "Kaya"


"Kaya's Place"


"Kaya" loves her pool.



Kaya is doing great and getting HUGE!!  We love it, it is so much fun to watch her grow and love on her.  She absolutely loves her little pool that we bought her, so much in fact that we have to dump it out every night or she goes out in the morning and jumps in first thing :)  She is an absolute blast and incredibly smart. Everyone tells us how beautiful she is.  She is completely spoiled and loves hanging out with me in the bathroom while I get ready in the morning (however she tends to try to sneak off with one of my flip flops). At her 11 week check up she weighed 26.5 pounds (she had gained 10 pounds in 3 weeks).  She loves her kennel and we ordered her new bed, so we can open it up more.  When she gets tired she will just go lay down in it.  She loves playing with other dogs and is very gentle with younger kids.  We absolutely love her and I hope that you enjoy these pictures, they don't even show a good representation of how big she is. The only thing that we regret is that we did not buy 2.  Maybe sometime in the near future :)

Have a great day and take care,
Stacy and Chris

"Gemma" a female pup from Calla x Dakota 9 mos old.






"Gemma" in the lake


Hi Kathy,

I included some pictures of Gemma in the pool.  She is such a water dog. 

I cannot keep her out.  It is so much fun to have a dog that loves water....she is our first dog to like the water.  She will actually swim when we are at the lake.  But at home in the clear water she only stands on the step.  ???  I can't figure that one out.  She is such a great dog....such a protector of the kids.  She HAS to be near them or she is soooo upset...especially Dominic.  It is like she knows he is the younger one and probably the one who would end up in trouble !!!!  LOL I hope these pictures brighten your day.....

Lots of love from our family to yours,



Andrea, Gemma is just breath-taking gorgeous!!!  WOW!

Thanks for the pics and updates.

"Bear" a 12 wk old Calla x Dakota pup from March 2008 litter!








"Bear" 12 wks old.


Hey Kathy!

How are you doin? Bear's doing just fine, like I'm sure I say all the time 'he's just getting smarter everyday!' lol He went to the vets office Friday, he weighed in at 30lbs. And got his 7way, and his bordatella, which both of them he took like a champ. My vet Shelly just LOVED him, she couldn't believe how sleek and silky his fur was, and she was amazed with how well behaved and sweet natured he was, as he kept looking at me for commands, she said that he had to be the smartest puppy she'd ever seen. ( Which I thought was pretty cool :p )

But he was the life of the party, everyone that worked there, and happened to be in the vet's office at the time just loved him, and I kept getting compliments on how gorgeous he was. So it was a good outing lol Anyways, Bear starts puppy classes tomorrow, which he'll be thrilled about, he loves going for rides in my truck, its like he's wondering what kind of adventures he'll be getting into lol!

Well, enjoy your week!

Melissa :)


Thanks for the photos and updates on Bear, he is just GORGEOUS!!!

Hi Kathy!!

Hope all is well! I just thought I would send you some updated photos of Kaya. She is doing great I love her!!! She is the best dog ever and she is SOOOO smart. I was also wondering if you knew of any Schutzhund training areas in Missouri? I would really love to try that with Kaya. She is my girl, shes so protective.

Thanks again,

Hi Kathy,

She is feeling right at home!  Here are some recent pics I wanted to share with you!  Titan’s girlfriend and her sister dropped by for a dip in the pool. 

She was quite the little pistol this morning!  A BUNDLE of energy. 


Hope you had a great weekend.


Also, she went to the vet on Saturday and checked out perfectly.

I had a BUNCH more pictures but my setting was off on the camera so they were BLUE. 

I’ll have more to come for sure!

Hey Kathy!

How are you doing? I'm doing okay. How is Anji's pups doing? I so wish I could get one of them.  Bears doing good, he just LOVES water lol Last time I weighed him, he was about 22lbs. He's getting big.  I've been teaching him a few things, he's a quick learner. So far he's mastered 'Sit' and 'Platz'   I finally got some pictures together, its been pretty busy here, my horse just had her baby, its a bouncing baby boy lol (I'll include some of her/him) But everyones doing good, more pictures in the next few days! Most of these pictures were taken today, but the ones where hes in his pool were taken a few days ago, before both his ears stood up ;)

Take care!

Congratulations on your latest litter of pups! I'm sure you remember that we originally wanted a girl from Anji and Dakota but that didn't work out.
In any case Polly and my kids love our new addition "Cally" (AKA Miss Sassy) and from what I've heard Titan has had no problems adjusting.

I wanted to thank you for this experience. I was somewhat hesitant in the beginning...buying a puppy and not being able to actually be there to see the parents or offspring. But you did a fantastic job keeping us updated with emails and pictures. I will definitely contact you for future GS purchases and would absolutely recommend you.

We will keep in touch, sending you pictures so you can watch our baby grow.

Subject:  I'm So In Love



I have pictures but can’t access them to send right now.  Ashley (my middle daughter) took BUNCHES and I’ll get them to you soon.  She has been such a great help in easing Ms. Cally (AKA Miss Sassy) into life with the us and Titan.  (Titan is our other German Shepherd) We are sitting on the deck, watching the sun set (while I need to get some work done) and I wanted to take a moment just to thank you again for such a dream dog.  She’s dreaming!  The little feet are twitching. 


Titan was a riot tonight.  He went into the house while Cally and I were out back.  He got one of her TOYS and began to taunt her (as he doesn’t like to share his – big brut).  He pranced all around with this tiny toy to get her attention.  She saw him and took charge.  Went right after her toy – with gusto!  They played for at least 30 minutes and she charged him like okay big boy BRING IT ON!  He was gentle but she was relentless!  She kept coming back for more.  Needless to say, dinner followed and now she’s napping! 


Got our package too!  Thanks Kathy.  Ashley took delivery and said she loved the pink “bone”.

I saw the tug rope, the Frisbee and the ball, along with the AKC, paperwork and the food.  We have her set to see our vet on Saturday.


One last note, she has been to the beach twice and LOVES the water and the sand.  It was hysterical to see Titan and her together last night (that was their first time together).  He would start digging intensely and she was fascinated – putting her little head in the line of sand fire! After he got done with one hole, she jumped in to take over.  By that time the hole was bigger than the dog and all you saw was a butt and tail!


Mike comes home tomorrow to meet her for the first time.  I CAN’T wait.  I’m so glad we have a long weekend.  


Thanks again!

Hey Kathy,

Me and my mom were talking and looking through his files last night (after a busy day with Bear) and we just don't know how you manage 6 full grown GSDs (some being pregnant) who's in heat, who's bred on what dates, taking care of puppies,

and giving them love and attention, shots, keeping up with their files, weights, pictures for the clients, taking them to the vets office etc. We only have one puppy and its a handful lol! So you deserve a medal or something!

Take care,


Answer:  Its called a true labor of love.  I LOVE MY DOGS!  Its a lot of work, but

when I get emails from happy clients, it is all worth the hard work.  I love what I do.  They are so much part of my life.

Hey Kathy!

Lemme just say, that it was a pleasure meeting you, and seeing everything! Your dogs have such an elegance and beauty to them, I can hardly wait for Bear to be as strong and beautiful as his parents ^_^

With that said, I am pooped! He's definitely wearing me out (lol) So far he's only had an accident in the house once (and that was my fault anyways)  He whined for awhile after leaving, then went to sleep for most of the way back home. He's doing really good, he comes when he's called, which is SO cute ^_^ I'm trying to kennel train him as best I can, just so he wont bug our older dogs, or chew anything he's not supposed too. His appetite seems fine, he's eating and drinking well, he already loves water (lol) he loves to splash around in the water dish in my moms room. I went ahead and added some pictures of him for yuh (until I can go through my collection lol then you'll get swamped)

Everything is going good. I wanna thank you again for all you've done, your such a good person!

15 pounds at 7 wks old!!!



"Kaya" in her new home.  Kaya left here on 5/10/08.


"Kaya" look at that GORGEOUS face!!!


Hi Kathy,
Well we finally made it home and Kaya is doing great.  She whined for about 10 minutes after we left but then began to investigate us.  We stopped at the Phillips 66/Wendy's and got some gas and lunch.  We put her in the back on the floor on her bed and she was out.  Rode that way until Brookfield where we made a stop, let her take a potty break and have some water.  She was great...no accidents and very comfortable.
We got home and after a little apprehension about going into the garage, she made it and went inside.  She has been having a ball investigating her new home and the cats.  Cats don't want anything to do with her but she sure wants to play with them.  Quite comical (lol).  She hasn't really eaten a whole lot but she seems like she is having a blast.  She is already going in her crate with little coaxing.  You were right, VERY, VERY intelligent.  Even got out and pottied here several time already with no accidents.  We are so happy we can't tell you how much we are enjoying her already...and it's only been a couple of hours.  I enclosed a few pictures of her new home and soon I will send you some more.  Thanks again for everything and we'll talk later.
Chris, Stacy and Kaya

Hi Kathy,


I soooo enjoyed your pictures of Calla.  She looks so healthy...that little chunky monkey !!!!  I cannot wait to see what those puppies look like.  Gemma is so beautiful and I still get so many compliments on her beauty.     

Gemma is weighing in at 56.1 lbs as of 3/11/08....she is the star of the vet with how fast she is growing.  5 lbs in 2 weeks.  

She has passed into level 5 in her training...yeah!!!  5 months old and at a level 5 with only 2 more to go...such a smart dog.  Gemma is an absolute joy to have in our home.  I have NEVER and I mean NEVER had a dog that is as affectionate and loving as Gemma.  She will give so many kisses when you see her.  Sometimes for no reason at all she just comes up for more kisses.  She still thinks she is a lap dog....and sits in my lap.  She is very protective of her domain.  Every morning when I take her out she has to give a couple  "woo...wooo.wooo's" just to let everyone know she is here and this is her house.  Her and Duke have a great realtionship she really loves him.  I hope all is well with you.  If you ever have to come into St. Louis please stop by for a visit you are always welcome.

Kisses & hugs,                                        



Hello Andrea--thank you very much for the BEAUTIFUL photos of Gemma and the update.  She is just stunning--absolutely GORGEOUS!  I am so proud of her!  I just love the pic of her and Dominic asleep that is too precious!  Thank you for providing a loving and wonderful home for Gemma.  The name suits her-she's a gem!  Hugs to you and yours!  : )

Hi Kathy,


I finally have a minute to say "hello" and tell you about Gemma.  She went to the Dr's office on Monday and she weighs 40lbs at almost 4 months.  She is such a great dog.  We started puppy classes in December.  She passed all of the classes three in one day!!!!  *seriously I only worked with her for one day and the next day we went back and she already knew...sit, down and down stay......very impressive.  We are continuing our classes and are still in class 4 we need to pass 1 step and we can go on to class 5.  Hope all is well with you....I see Calla is due in March what a great dog her pups are so beautiful. 

Gemma is going to have her coloring. 

Thanks again for such a wonderful, healthy dog.  

P.S.  Both ears are up!!!    




Thanks Andrea for the update & photos!  Gemma is just breath-taking-so beautiful-I am lost for words!  Wow such beauty and intelligence at only 4 mos of age!  Great job Andrea with Gemma's training!  Hugs to you and Gemma!

Have a good evening and we'll talk soon!
