Favorite Toy:
Big treat ball

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
"Give me Five", "Find your toy" , & "Take me home" & she's learned those within the 1st week of being here!

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.

Making a Liar Out Of Mom

October 25th 2014 1:57 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

As I predicted, I found myself totally out of excuses when it came time to go to dog school Tuesday night. On our ride to class, I decided that the next best thing to do would be to surprise Mom by getting even with her for prediction that I would act like a little heathen who doesn't remember anything she was taught. Now everyone knows children and animals especially, are famous for their expertise in the art of making liars out of adults.

Thus it was, when it came time for me to work in class, I shocked/surprised/maybe both? Mom by working better than I work when I have to attend class regularly and work at home between class days. I did my heeling, keeping up during the turns and even sitting fairly straight when we stopped. When I did my recalls, I charged down that floor to Mom as if the floor was on fire. I even did my stays better than usual...well except for the down-stay. It's hard to lay down and stay there when there's so much going on around me. Hey Mom if another dog gets up during the down-stay, of course I'm going to want to get up and see what the other dog's doing that's so interesting! And Mom you shouldn't cheat and step on the leash to make me stay.

Yeah, yeah Mom, I know I should be able to hold my down-stays as well as I do my sit-stays, but there's a big difference. When I have to do a sit-stay, I can see what's going around me so much better than when I have to do a down!

Overall, Mom was both surprised and impressed with how well I worked in class Tuesday night. The only problem now is, she expects me to work as well or better NEXT time we go to dog school too!


Out of Excuses

A short while ago, I heard Mom tell her best friend that now I'm out of heat, she plans to take me to dog school tomorrow night. It looks like there's absolutely no chance of me lucking out of school at the last minute again this time either, since Mom has to wear that hip brace. No, I really wouldn't wish another hip dislocation on Mom but at the same time I must admit I enjoyed the last minute reprieve from dog school and my time vacationing at the kennel. I also heard Mom tell her best friend that she expects I will act like a "little heathen who doesn't remember anything she was taught" at school tomorrow night. Now Mom might be right about that part of what she said. If I live down to that statement, it might add some fun and excitement to school night. Problem is, that might make Mom give me an ominous threat of something called "consequences."


My Good Luck Continues!

Happily for me, my good luck continues. I got to come home last Saturday since Mom's well enough to handle me now. I was sure glad to get home. I immediately checked the kitty litter boxes to see if the cats had left me any fresh treats. (I prefer my litter box treats to be fresh.) I got lucky, found one, and ate it before Mom could catch me. I then grabbed another, ran for the refuge of my crate, dove in, and checked. Yes! My Galileo bone was still there, waiting on me. I picked it up, put on my best innocent face, and held it in the front of my mouth while finishing my contraband treat in the back of my mouth. I also know I won't have to go to dog school tomorrow night. While I was at Mom's best friend's kennel, I came into heat and I'm still not quite out of heat yet. So I get to skip dog school tomorrow night! Mom ominously says I've gone too long without being worked and that I'm going to have to make up for lost time. But I'm not going to worry about that yet. I just hope luck keeps going my way!
