Abe, Charolette, Trooper, and Molly

Dear Pat,

I know it's been awhile. Here are a few current pictures of Molly and Trooper. ( with the new additions of Abe and Charolette ) All four go to training every week. Trooper still has soft ears however he can put them up when he wants to as you can see in the one picture. The picture of the bear is not a mistake. The picture was taken about three blocks from our house. It had been roaming the neighborhood for about a week and a half although it was never spotted until the day of this photograph. So how do I know it was in the area?? About a week before it was captured I was ready to send Trooper to the vet or to rescue. He was acting very strange and out of character. Especially when he went outside with the other dogs. He was constantly herding the&nbs p;
little dogs and carrying on. If either one started walking towards the rear of our yard or got near the fence he would pin them down with his paws or his body. If we left any of the other dogs out and left him inside he would go nuts inside the house. A couple of times at night when we left him out he would hit the bottom of the steps and make a bee line for the rear of our property barking and growling. The bear in the photo was captured on a Sunday morning. By the following Tuesday he was back to normal!!!!! The bear was taken to Northampton County and released. Trooper still watches after the little ones when they are all outside. It's his job.

Hello Pat,
  I thought I would update you on our puppy, Nikko Von Moreck.  He was the blue puppy from Abby and Frankie's litter.  He is doing really well.  He is so smart and inquisitive.  He was housebroken in three weeks, and already knows "sit," "down," and "come."  He is learning to walk on a leash.  We have him enrolled in a year long puppy and basic obedience class.  He gets to go to puppy play groups and loves playing with the other dogs.  The hilarious thing is that he is drawn to the other German Shepherd puppies.  The trainers laugh about how the shepherds are snobs!  The trainer is a former K9 trainer, so they are giving us tons of tips on how to train him.  Nikko likes his crate and has already outgrown two.  He was at the vet yesterday and he weighs 31 lbs (at 13 weeks).  The vet commented about how she has never seen such an inquisitive puppy who looks right in her face when she talks. Everyone we meet just loves him and we constantly get told how beautiful he is.  Here are two pictures that were taken last week.  I will keep you updated on his progress and send more pictures as he gets older.   Thanks for the great puppy!




Hello Pat,

I thought I would update you on our puppy Nikko.  He is now 5 months old, and he weighs 55 lbs!  Everyone thinks he is going to be huge!  Nikko continues to amaze us with his intelligence and inquisitiveness.  We just can't get over how quickly he learns.  We show him something once or twice, and he knows it.  We found a great training facility and have him enrolled in puppy and basic obedience class.  He only has one more month of puppy class left, but it is great for socialization.  He gets to run around with other puppies (and he likes to play with the ones that he is bigger than...he stays away from the mastiffs!), and other people get to handle him.  We also get to work on the agility equipment, which he was at first terrible at!  I think he grew into his paws because at the last class, he came in second!!  It really is a great class.

Nikko has also moved onto the basic obedience and is in the "sit" group, as well.  This class is usually for dogs 6 months or older, but he was ready at about 4.5 months.  In this class, we work on long "sits" and "fuss".  he has to remain sitting with distractions, and must heel in and out of other dogs.   This is not a play time class, and it is amazing to see how well he responds.  He is still occasionally distracted, but the trainers tell us he is amazing for only five months old.  We have started working with him on down ("platz").  He can do it, but not to remain there for long periods of time.  On our own, we have been working on scent discrimination, which he is getting quite good at, and searching for various items.

Thanks again for breeding such a remarkable pup.  I just had to e-mail and brag about Nikko.  We couldn't be happier with him.  I am attaching several pictures so you can see how he has grown.  Notice the shepherd stance already!

Nikko again. 

Hi Pat,
Your puppies are beautiful and what a life. I hope I come back in my next life as one of your dogs! Take care.

Max, What a ham!!!!!





Hi Pat,

I hope that all is well with you and the shepherds. Jan and I took
some updated pictures of Greta today and we wanted to send some to
you. She is doing exceptionally great! We take her out in our
neighborhood park a few times a week and she just loves the woods.
It's great how she sticks right by us even when she's off the leash
in the woods. She's also begun to explore the Wissahickon creek and
will go in up to her belly. Greta is such a delight in our lives.
We no longer have the nippy puppy issue that I contacted you for
advice on. She's totally outgrown that stage. She's also really
great with her commands and so many people that we meet comment on
how calm and well behaved she is. We just love our little girl! We
will continue to keep you posted. Take care!

More Greta!!

Meet Gus!!



Gus has personality plus.  His owner buys him new toys and he prefers sticks.....but he does like his new tie!!!

Kira and Corbin love each other so much I swear she is his guardian
angle. She does not like him to go out side w/o her she will fuss until
I let her out. If he goes to our neighbors in the back of our property
she will sit a the gate of thier fence until they let her in or he
comes home. They play fetch in the yard for hours, sometimes my son
will even fetch. (how wierd is that.) She is a beutiful dog and we love
her very much. Thanks again for her.... Yvonne and Roger James...



This is Kinsley!!  What a riot!!


Meet Bailey.....



Congratulations Maggie. So proud of you!!
