Today while conducting an investigation I was talking with a couple who had a West German Show Line German Shepherd Dog. They are from Pennsylvania and their family has a summer home in Brewster. I had actually met them and their dogs several years ago but today while talking with them they told me that they got one of their dogs, Capo, from Gayle Kirkwood at Kirchenwald Shepherds. I asked who their dog’s sire was and they said Gorbi. I told them I had a German Shepherd Dog also and that Aiden had come from Michigan, at which point they said their dog’s mother was from Michigan. When I said Aiden was from Alta-Tollhaus GSD’s they said that Capo’s mother was an Alta-Tollhaus dog…what a small world!! Capo is from the “F” litter and is a Gorbi/Kira son.
I got my Ipad and brought up the blog. I showed them pictures of the “F” litter when they were young pups and of Capo’s brother Roman (Alta-Tollhaus Franziskaner)….and of course I showed them pictures of Aiden.
