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.

Playing Hooky Loses Its Enjoyability

August 2nd 2015 12:40 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Lately, I once again came into heat and am playing hooky from dog school. However, for some reason, this time it's a lot less fun. For one thing, this time Mom isn't staying home with me. This is Chomper's fault. Instead of staying home with me, Mom is taking him to school as if I weren't even here. When Chomper gets to go to sfhool without me, it sure takes all the fun out of getting to stay home!

To further take the fun out of my staying home from school, when Mom got home she said that Chomper is working very well in class. To further rub it in, she said Chomper worked better than I did at the same age. Well, Chomper got to go to school since he was very young whereas I was older than him when I first came to Mom's house. Also, I must admit, I'm a more stubborn individual than he is, I try harder to get my own way whereas he tends to go along with Mom's ideas more quickly. There, I admitted it, Chomper's more cooperative than I am. Now Mom, now that I've admitted it, you should be able to see that once I'm out of heat you should leave Chomper home and just take me to school! (Yeah I know, this is wishful thinking...)


A Lazy Dog's Way to Catch Up on Things

Right now, I'm being a very lazy dog. This means I'm not exerting any extra effort to let anybody know what's been happening with us lately. And why should I? After all, Uno's already done all the work for me! For those of you who want to know the latest, see Uno's most recent diary entry at: rrepressible

And now I'm going to tell Chonper to quit running his mouth, not that he'll listen to ME, roll over, and go back to sleep, hopefully in peace although with all that's going on around here lately, peace and quiet has been difficult to find in recent days!


The Interloper

That small black wiggly puppy thing that Mom makes me share time and attention with, is in my calculated canine opinion, nothing but an interloper, an intruder on my time and space who has gotten a lot bigger since Mom first brought him home. Last night HE got to go to dog school while I had to stay home! The reason for this? Mom said it was too hot to leave one of us crated in the car while training the other! Her excuse for taking him instead of me was that I already know the basic commands and exercises while he is now just learning to work in class. This IMO isn't quite true because Mom's been working him at home before she started working him in class.

When both of us need to go outside to potty at the same time, HE usually gets to go first. The reason? Mom says because I'm an adult, I can hold longer than he can. I think that because I was here first, I should get to go out first. Mom's response is to remind me that I'm not the one to have to clean the crate when he makes a mess. Grudgingly I must admit she's right about that one.

Mom's also started teaching Chomper to gait alongside the bike which means I have to miss out on a time when I could have gone with her. She also keeps letting him take a turn playing loose in the house which means I have to sit in the crate while he gets to play. She says when he gets older and more settled, she will let us both loose in the house at the same time but that at present we get too "wild and crazy" if she lets us loose in the house together. Well, I guess that statement is sort of true because when we are loose together in the house we run, jump over furniture, knock things over, and agitate the cats...all things we aren't supposed to do in the house!

However, when it comes time for us to play together outside, I must admit I tend to forget my resentment of him because he is a lot of fun to play with. Having someone to play chase with and wrestle with in the kennel run is much more fun than being in the run alone!
