"Krap" (aka the park) & his Flying Squirrel (a toy), Beach & his buddy ball. Teasing Duchovny & getting her to chase me. http://thegsd.info!!

People who won't play ball 24-7 are SOOO boring! "Gotta work on my game!!!!"

Favorite Toy:
Buddy's Glow Ball(s), Lord of the Rings (a toy), Flying squirrel, Jolly ball, Kong... basically anything.

Favorite Food:
Healthy Kibble (ground and soaked with my enzymes) Carrots/veggies, peanut butter, greenies, yogurt drops... & some

Favorite Walk:
We go to the Krap nightly. I also think the beach Rocks!!! Bring on those waves baby!!!!

Best Tricks:
Aside from my Service Dog training; Catching a ball/other toy or tossed treat & balencing a ball on the top of my head. :D

Arrival Story:
A very lucky twist of fate brought my little man too me. He was the result of a very looong search for the perfect Service Dog (Google 'Service Dogs' to learn all about them & to see how different they are from 'Therapy dogs') pup. He was meant to go to someone else, it hurt as he was a pup that had all the things I was looking for in service puppy. I was set to wait for the repeat breeding. I happened to email his breeder (just to check) I timed it perfectly! Just 15 min before my email the former owners canceled as their older female GSD had broken its leg. They didn't think it was right to have a pup in the house as their girl healed, so they waited for the next litter. Krycek then came home to us & started his Service Dog puppy training! :)

Krycek (pronounced "Cry-Check". The 'H' is spoken but not written) is named after the character "Alex Krycek" in the tv show The X-Files, its a Russian surname. Krycek's Sire: VA-1 Superioue's Zathan {2003 North American Sieger & International Champion} Krycek's Dam: V-1 Quana vom Haus Dexel {National & International Champion} Krycek's registered name is: SG Dylan von Schwartz. He entered into his very first confirmation show on 7-11-04. He was just 15 months old. With just one days training at the breeders & no experience he earned his SG title & won a trophy! We are so proud of him! We promise to stop bragging now! ;) :) ----- With a heavy heart I have been forced to retire my boy from Service Dog training. Dec 04 he was diagnosed with severe genetic Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. After many weeks of rapid weight loss & miss diagnosis we finally found out the cause. Krycek went from weighing in at 80 pounds, to weighing in at 48 pounds.... EPI is a horrible lifelong disease that can cause life-threatening relapses in effected dogs. Due to Krycek's poor health unfortunately I have been forced to retire him from duty. Hopefully we can still expect a nice long life out of my very young man. He now holds titles of, SG, retired SD & personal assistant #2.

Last Tuesday, August 2, 2011 we were forced to help Krycek cross over. We rushed Kry to the vet thinking he might have bloat (or something - other strange symptoms) but learned far tragic news. Cancer. True to form, it didn't show itself until it had completely destroyed his perfect body. It was too late to do anything. I have never hated something so much. He'd had it for so long it had shrunken his precious heart, yet he never showed it. I drill my mind for signs, he just never showed any of being tired, anything, until those last few days...
I'm writing down lovely memories of my boy to share a bit later. For now I share (below) one of my fav poems, it's one that describes how I feel. You know when your dog is behind you, you don't see them but you can feel them? That's what I feel now with Krycek. I still feel him. I felt him leave the vet office with us and feel him sporadically throughout the day and night.

Krycek, I know your still around, the whole family feels you. We love you so much. You are the bravest and strongest soul I know. You had a hard life living with EPI and the now later ouchy growing in your tummy, but you don't have to worry about that anymore. You always did everything asked of you, never begged (even with legitimate reason too) or complained (even with legitimate reason too) lived through so much more then you ever deserved, I would have taken it all away if only I could. You're my hero. We're so very proud of you and to have known you. Thank you for your abundance of love and help. Love you to infinity+!!!! Until we see each other again on those soft clouds of pearly white. Sending lots of warm hugs and love. ~ Your mum xoxoxo

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you so softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea.
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wished I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said, "It's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over now ... I smile and watch you yawning,
And say, "Goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out ... then come Home to be with me.
