I heard from several people from our GSD extended family, here are some of the new year reports:
I had a really nice phone call from Fred W. , he is doing really well and so his Sole. Fred adopted Sole (Ky x Mandy) within days of his wife’s death. He wasn’t sure it was the right thing to do but his daughter Clara insisted. Fred had been married for 54 years. Clara knew a dog wouldn’t replace her mother but it would give her father something to take care of. Clara is a very smart woman. Fred absolutely loves Sole and Sole has completely taken to Fred.
Below is a picture of Broker (Ghandi x Evita) taken over the Christmas holiday. Broker is owned by Becky H. in Muskegon. I really miss the Broker-girl. She was a handful but it seems those dogs that are less then perfect always mange to be your favorites, why is that? Becky has done a great job with Broker and Broker totally loves Becky.
Bill F. from Colorado reports that Bauer (Hoss x Zucca) is thriving in the cold weather, which has been as low as -20 degrees. They have been doing 3 hour snowshoeing treks. They walk to town each morning where he is on crowded streets and meets many dogs. He is wonderful with all people, and good with dogs. Although not crazy about dogs off leash–probably because they are too pushy. Bill says he is the perfect dog. I love to hear that!
