Best Tricks:

Arrival Story:
We were shooting pictures of pups for my friend's website and evaluating puppies and Destiny kept making eye contact with me and coming over to me. Although my favorite GSD color is solid black, Destiny is black & red, and I'd planned to wait until a high quality black pup came along, Destiny was so gorgeous with beautiful type, including good front and correct croup (good front angulation and croups being two of the hardest structural characteristics to get or maintain in GSD breeding). Color after all, is one of the least important characteristics in the GSD. Type, temperament, trainability, intelligence, etc all are the cake, color is only the icing on the cake! Destiny also had excellent confident, social temperament, was being so very attentive to me, and has had the best socialization with cats a puppy could possibly have (an important thing for me because I have a large cat family and expect my dogs to get along with cats). The way Destiny kept trying to get my attention made me feel she was choosing me so I gave in to her wishes. It sure all seemed to be "Written in the Stars", "Destiny" for us to be together!

Destiny is black and red. Her registered name is "Raebark's Written in the Stars." Although she physically is of correct show type, her pedigree combines American show lines (some old lines as well as modern lines) with German show lines and German working lines, including DDR lines.

Last Minute Vacation

September 26th 2014 5:31 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Things have really been going my way this summer. In June I lucked out when Mom had to have her second total hip replacement surgery. That gave me several weeks off from dog obedience school. Finally enough time passed that there was nothing at all happening to prevent Mom from taking me to dog obedience school again. It was September 9th when at the last minute luck struck me again.

Mom's favorite cat who had recently developed feline vestibular syndrome, had been confined to a cage until she had recovered enough to be able to get around without hurting herself. Mom still didn't feel at ease enough to allow Uno to run free in the house unless Mom was there to supervise.

Mom had let Uno run free for awhile when it grew close to time for Mom to take me back to dog school for the first time since before Mom's June surgery. When Mom went to catch Uno to put Uno back in her cage, Uno jumped up on a shelf behind my crate and hid in the very back corner on top of computers on the shelf. Mom moved to try to grab Uno when suddenly she tripped, her left leg crossed in front of her right leg, and she fell to the left. CRACK! It all happened so fast, within seconds. Mom instantly knew what had happened. Her newly replaced hip had dislocated.

To make a long story short, instead of taking me to dog school as she had planned to do, Mom ended up having to go to the hospital to have her hip put back in joint. I ended up going to Mom's best friend's kennel for a nice vacation again! From what I hear, Mom's better now although she still has to wear a brace. I'm still enjoying my last-minute vacation although it's rumored that my vacation may only last a week longer. I intend to make the most of it!

Hooray I got to play hookey from dog school today! When Mom was grooming me out in preparation for taking me to dog school, she discovered I was in heat. I asked her what that means. She said that means I'm on lockdown for awhile, no long runs in the field or the woods, no doing anything that would risk me getting anywhere close to another dog. I don't think I like that. Lockdown sounds like p-r-i-s-o-n to me. Mom told me it's not that bad because I only have to be on lockdown a few weeks. Then I'll be out of heat and back to normal again. The one good thing about it is that it was an excuse that actually worked to get me out of school today! BTW I was thrilled I got a DDP today! Thank you Dogster and thank you friends who gave me rosettes and thank you Cooper for my pretty DDP picture!


Weed Confusion

May 5th 2014 12:53 pm

Mom's been doing a strange thing lately. She's been putting me in the outdoor kennel run while she goes and gets some kind of spray. The weird thing about it is what she does with the spray. She sprays certain plants that are growing around here. These plants look fine to me. They don't look like they need to be watered. When I asked Mom why she's doing this, she says these plants are weeds and need to be sprayed and killed. I asked her how spraying these plants can kill them and Mom says she's spraying chemicals on them to kill them. I asked Mom what makes a plant a weed and she said when it's growing in the wrong place or when it is a bad plant. I asked Mom what a bad plant is and she said plants that have sticky things on them such as thistles or plants that get burs on them or other things that stick to peoples socks or animals coats or plants that get real big and spread allergens everywhere are all examples of weeds. When I asked Mom why her rosebushes aren't weeds when they have thorns on them, she said they are good because they have pretty flowers on them. I'm confused. Some of the plants she calls weeds get pretty flowers on them too so what's the difference? And I can't even begin to figure out the plant they call weed on TV that some people think is terrible and other people think is the greatest thing that grows! Oh well, I guess my place is to try to enjoy the rabbit poop that I always try to find around the weeds.
