Comanche (Celhaus Irresistible) at 5 years
“Happy 5th birthday, Comanche! May you always have a lap to sit on.”

Comanche at 2 years 4 months
Comanche is doing well in Search & Rescue training.  He has his Cadaver 2, water shore, evidence, open water and trailing certifications – everything but avalanche, as of July 2017.
Way to go, Comanche & Janet!!!

Hamish (Celhaus Hurrah’s Halleluja) at 5 years 6 months
Hamish is doing really well in Search & Rescue training.

“Hamish with a cat that adopted us.”

Hamish and his sister and good buddy, Nikki (Celhaus Ho’nehe Nicolita) at 5 years 6 months

Gunnar (Celhaus Gallant Gunnar Celebrate Chaos) at 6 years 6 months

“Another new grand baby. Gunnar is such a momma with the grandkids. He has taken it upon himself to keep track of them whenever they visit. He will come and get me if something is going on with them that he doesn’t like. As you can see in the picture he even has to oversee bath time. 😊 He will whine outside of the bathroom if we close him out.  He’s pretty cute! “

Coda (Celhaus Ho Fiducia In Coda) at 5 years 5 months
“Sorry I’m so late sending you updates, but Coda and I had quite the busy year. I spent a lot of time for work in Washington D.C. and at the end we decided to move there. Yes, I asked Coda’s opinion and he quite loved his new apartment life when we tried it out between March and June. We officially moved at the end of August, sold our house in Oregon, and now we’re living the city life in an apartment near the zoo and Rock Creek Park. Coda really loves his two dog walkers and being surrounded by people. Plus we are surrounded by trees and parks and green spaces and we try to go hiking enough times to have a good balance of city life and country life. Two of my co-workers also became his best buddies, so he spends a lot of times with them as well. And, as always, he’s the most admired puppy in town (nobody believes me when I tell them he’s five years old!). “

Harlee (Celhaus Harlee Von Grimmelhausen) at 5 years 5 months

“She is covered with snow. She is very intense & serious all the time “

Harlee with nephew Gus (Celhaus LeBeau Gustavason), 3 years 8 months

“Kids on guard duty.”


Hyder (Celhaus Hyder) at 5 years 5 months

1st photo:  “Hyder on our last hike before the snow started. “
2nd photo:  “Hyder above Porcupine Falls this summer.”
3rd photo:  “Back at camp, end of a long hike.”

Gryphon (Celhaus ho Galenos) at 6 years 5 months
Name Story: Greek for Gryphon the calm

“Good morning Ma’am! Just wanted to send you a Gryphon update! We are living happily in Omaha and he is the favorite dog at his doggy daycare! He gets to work as the intake dog to meet all the potentials due to his temperament and everyone there said he is the most well tempered GSD they’ve been around! Just had a vet check up and they said he is at a near perfect weight of 80 pounds and looks healthy in all regards!”

Abby (Celhaus Hues Good Abbie Gail) at 5 years 4 months

Abby from the HH litter (a full younger sister to my GloryToo) came to visit November 3rd and of course we took a bunch of photos (no, it wasn’t snowing; the snow you see flying is from Abby racing after her ball).  See those photos.

Cody (Celhaus Gembala) at 6 yrs 4 months with his great-niece Sadie (Celhaus Rhapsody in Black), 4 months

Fritz (Celhaus Fritz) at 7 years

“Fritzy is doing great! He just celebrated his 7th birthday on Monday and we threw him a little party. My kids definitely enjoyed his party hat a lot more than he did 🙂 We still go to the park every day and I think he is the only one in our family who is not sick and tired of all the snow. And all the shovelling!
I have included a picture we took on his birthday and also a bunch of other snow pictures. He really will be pretty upset when it all melts off. But by then, hopefully the irrigation ditch will be flowing and he can swim everyday again!”

Soleil (Celhaus Good Day Sunshine) at 6 years 5 months

“Sol being unusually quiet.”


Soleil celebrating her 6th birthday
Let’s play, mom!!!!!

Soleil, 5 years 11 months, at Search & Rescue Water Seminar, working the dock
“We went to Huntsville, AL. to train for HRD water. Opted out of certifying; we were not ready. Training on winter in NE for water, and without a boat equals unobtainium. It’s all good, learned a lot under Lisa Higgins, hopefully we can spruce up and try again. Sol was actually much better on the boat than on shore line. On our last boat ride, which would have been the certification, but we ran it as scenario, she got impatient with me and jumped off the boat.  “If you can’t figure it out, I sure can, so I’m gonna get it myself.”  Left me and the trainer with open mouths, but it sure was fun!! She’s got attitude, you gotta give her that!!”

Gunnar (Celhaus Gallant Gunnar Celebrate Chaos) at 6 years 5 months and Katie (Celhaus Katie von Lively) at 3 years 5 months (Katie’s the bicolor)
These two dogs are owned by a mother and daughter.  Katie is a service dog and gives Janelle’s husband and family peace of mind when she is out on her own. 

Kairos (Celhaus Hoffnung) at 4 years 8 – 9 months
Kairos’ parents retired and are touring the country in a motor home.

“Having a ball with kids at birthday parties. He is SO wonderful with kids. He was in heaven at the parties.”

Rainn (Celhaus High Desert Rainn)  at 4 years 11 months

Some of you  may remember Rainn, who was intensively training for Search & Rescue when she received a mysterious spider bite (if I remember correctly) which ate away all kinds of flesh and nearly claimed her life and ended up with months of treatment.  She has now fully recovered, thank God.

Cody (Celhaus Gembala CDX, BN, NA, NAJ, ACT1, CGC, ATD) at 5 years 10-11 months

First photo:  “Well, by the grace of God, we did it!! Cody has his CDX finally. Had fun doing it, though it was indeed frustrating at times!  Cody also got a 1st place ribbon. He was the only dog out of seven to qualify. Learned some more and nice to have the support and encouragement of all there. Judge was really good in explaining his marks.  For the “Command discrimination” he accidentally clicked his pen which Cody heard, just as I was giving the sit from down command. So I had to give a second command. He didn’t fault us, and apologized for doing that. Nice judge! Hope to get some more legs in agility in May, and keep moving on.”

Other photos:  “I’m attaching some pictures we had taken this past weekend at our agility trial. Cody “Q’d” in three of five runs. He finished his “Novice B Fast” title, and gained a leg in “Open Jumps & Weaves”. And having fun doing it all. He’s not a speed merchant like Cantor, but gets it done. Part of it is uncertainty, due to unclear signals from his handler. “

Cody the Therapy Dog at 5 years 9 months

“They took a bunch of pics last week when we visited with our group “Thera-paws” on our regular schedule.  It is a special needs school. It can be very challenging for the dogs with sudden noises, outbursts and “ear pinches”, but overall the kids love the dogs, and are really very good with them. Sometimes dogs help to calm them as well. That’s the idea, right?”

Chavah (Celhaus Grace Upon Grace) at 5 years 9 months

“Hi Cel, I have been thinking about you and the new litter coming. Also about how I continue to be SO incredibly grateful for Chavah. Attached are a few photos. As much of a handful as she was and still it at times :), she always would snuggle up under the piano (until too big) whenever I would play and still does. I couldn’t resist the contrast. Enjoy! “

Havoc (Celhaus Forget Me Not) at 6 years 10 months
“Hey Cel, it’s Havoc’s mom! He and I are in North Carolina for a little bit doing dog trainer school! He is loving the ocean and the constant work!” 

Blue (Celhaus Flame Tempest of Thunder) at 6 years 5 months, showing what happens when a pup enters the family.

Unfortunately, Blue died suddenly shortly after this photo was taken.

He got a new bed after being banished from “his” couch (reason for banishment not given). But the twelve-week-old puppy, Echo, (Celhaus Piper Echo from the PP litter), liked it better than her bed and took it over. Finally they found a solution.

Bohdi (Celhaus Killian) at 2 years 11 months

“Hi Cel, Sorry I have been so bad about sending pictures of Bohdi. I haven’t been taking very many pictures so I don’t have a very good selection. We were up at Red Feather cutting our Christmas tree down and Bohdi was having a great time chewing tree branches.”

Layla (Celhaus K Layla) at 2 years 11 months

“Layla keeping Bob’s chair warm on cold snowy day. Will send more pictures soon.”

Ava (Celhaus Kyla) at 2 years 11 months
“We just got our oldest daughter a small shichon pup (a mix between the Shih Tzu and Bichon) which she had been asking for a long time. The pup is just happy go lucky and Ava is amazing with her. It is so funny when the pup doesn’t listen when we call her Ava will nudge her to come to us and try to get her to obey. Ava is the smartest and kindest dog I have ever come into contact with. Ava is the best mother to this pup. She follows her around the house and looks out for her. She also has been enforcing the rules of the house with the pup in a very gentle way.”

Greta (Celhaus Faithful Frauline) at 6 years 6 – 7 months
A couple pictures of Greta in her new back yard. We are now living in Minnesota. About a month later, pictures of Greta and her first snow in her new home. Snow is very early this year, but kinda pretty.

Ava (Celhaus Kyla) at 1 year 4 months
Kyla is Hebrew for “Victorious” and “Ava” is a Hebrew derivative meaning “life”.

Ava is incredibly smart and good. She is the easiest dog we have ever had. Ava did so well after training that we registered her as a service dog for our adopted son with diplegia cerebral palsy. Ava is getting my son’s crutch as he needs it and putting her head and nudging him when he needs a companion and gets nervous. Very simple stuff but useful!! We adopted him when he was 8 and he could barely walk. So now with therapy and after two surgeries he is able to walk with one crutch to help him balance. This is pretty much his baseline. He is 14 now and just needs to stay active to keep it up. He doesn’t have close friends really so Ava is great at being that consistent friend. He loves animals and volunteers at an animal adoption shelter every week. He uses clicker training and treats to keep the dogs quiet during adoption. Ava is very loving and affectionate and intuitive. She is also great for protection in case someone would ever try to mess with him or us!

Ava (Celhaus Kyla) at 29 weeks

Ava went to the dock jump at the fair and she was a little star. (Cel’s note: as far as I know, this was her first experience of dock diving.)

The NuVet people had tried to recruit me for their breeder program for several years but it wasn’t until I was getting frustrated at my inability to get a soft, shiny coat on Quasi that I decided to try their products. I finally told the NuVet people I would never recommend any product without trying it first, and that I’d like to try their NuVet Plus on Quasi. They sent a free two-month supply and at the end of the trial period I was seeing enough improvement that I signed up for their breeder program.   [READ MORE]
