Likes: Playing with any dog (especially Sixx & Charlie), walking, chasing the flashlight (obsession is more like it), fetching sticks (another obsession), chin scratched, barking at everything! Oh and I love to howl when I hear sirens.
Pet-Peeves: Riding in a car, when mom leaves me, cuddling, vaccuums/brooms/mops, hair dryer, not getting my way, when mom tickles my back paws.
Favorite Toy: Tennis balls & sticks! I also have this little rubber elephant, it's green/pink/yellow and the squeak always makes cry. It also makes me howl. My mom cracks up everytime I howl playing with the elephant (sirens make me howl too).
Favorite Food: Almost anything, especially real bones. My mom feeds me Innova. I really like flossies too.
Favorite Walk: Anywhere & Patterson Lake Forest Preserve.
Best Tricks: When I ask him: Where's your ball? Get the ball. He goes and gets it. The thing is I never taught him what a ball was. I just said it once and he got the ball. He taught himself.
Arrival Story: My mom grew up with a GSD (Shane) and she always wanted another one. When she finally got her own place, she decided it was time to get a dog. Mom kept searching breeders of GSD's and finally found one she liked. She, Grandma, and Auntie Tina came to look at all of us when we were 4 weeks old. Mom knew she wanted a male, picked me and, well, the rest is history. Mom picked me up the day before Easter of 2005. She says I'm the best Easter present she ever got!
Bio: My full name is Odin Vom Haus Glitzernstern. Rogen is my call name and the name my mom gave me. I'm from the "O" litter. Each litter is named with the same letter, hence, the "O" litter. It's the German way of doing things. The breeder told her I liked to cuddle and love people. Hah, fooled them all. I hate to cuddle! The love people thing, that depends on the person. I'm very, very protective of my mom. I'm not good with kids, I'm not around them enough. I play too rough, don't know how to be gentle. Mom works, so I go to Grandma's during the day. I love my Grandma, she takes such good care of me. Besides my cousin Sixx (he's an English Setter) is there and we get to play. Sixx belongs to my Uncle Dave and Auntie Tina. They live with Grandma. Not to mention there are A LOT of sticks there. I LOVE STICKS!
