Otto D (Celhaus Lancelot Otto) at 3 years 3 months

“Here’s a quick hello from Otto D (LL). He’s matured nicely and is quite the gentleman and family man. We sure do love him!”


Bridger (Celhaus Lodestar Bridger) at 2 years 3 months

4/7/19:  “Bridger is doing fine. We are having periods of warmer weather so he won’t be happy when he has to stay home rather than riding along. We continue to work on Rally and Obedience in the hopes that one day I’ll be able to enter us and try for our titles.  I’m attaching pictures from last years scent work camp. Hopefully we will get to go again this year as I’ve requested time off. The pictures range from a re-introduction to rats for barn hunt, nosework and a couple of tracking.  As you will see, he loves using his nose.”

Gus (Celhaus LeBeau Gustavason (LeBeau means handsome man in French) at 2 years 11 months
Gus is now a therapy dog and is busy bringing cheer to hospitalized patients. Way to go, you two!!!

February 2019:
“This month’s volunteer spotlight celebrates two amazing Wyoming Medical Center helpers: Julie Morton and her therapy dog, Gus. Julie and Gus visit patients, families and staff as part of the NERD Health and Wellness Center’s therapy dog program.  Julie is a lifelong resident of Casper and was born at Wyoming Medical Center. Julie, an avid animal lover, enjoys walking her dogs along the Platte River and Bridle Trails as well as working on dog agility training with The Agility Club of Central Wyoming.  Gus is a certified therapy dog through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs. He was diagnosed with the lifelong illness of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency at 6 months old. Now 3, his condition is well managed and he is happy, loyal, gentle and easy-going. When he isn’t “volunteering” at the hospital, he enjoys walking, learning new tricks through his agility training, and watching and barking at other animals on television.  “I enjoy the happiness that Gus brings to people when we visit the hospital,” Julie said. ‘The dog therapy program gives staff, families and patients a pleasant break from their medical experience. It’s a privilege to be a part of this new beneficial program.’ Thank you Julie and Gus for bringing smiles and joy to WMC!”


I’ve never had anyone name one of my pups “Otto” but for some strange reason we now have TWO pups in this litter whose call names are “Otto”. At least one is a sable and one is a bicolor so you shouldn’t get too confused keeping track of them.

Otto P (Celhaus Lead the Way Otto) at 2 years 9 months

“Good afternoon Cel:  I have been wanting to do this for a long time, and your recent email reminds me that now is as good a time as ever.  He is the best dog I have ever had, and at 62 I have had a lot of dogs. I named him Otto, and he is about as sweet and pleasant as a dog can be. He comes to work at the office with me every day, and he is a joy to everyone in the office.  I suspect that many times your dogs go off with folks and you never hear from them. That of course is nearly true with me. But I just wanted to share my appreciation of the good work that you do with your dogs. They are one of a kind. Otto has brought me and mine a lot of joy. Keep up the good work! Thank you. Paul.”


Pika (Celhaus Lively Pika) at 2 years

I just couldn’t delete the gorgeous photos of Pika in the breathtaking Alaskan scenery so I created a special page for anyone who wants to enjoy them:  Pika photos

Beyla, from the MM Litter, and her parents recently moved to Anchorage and the two couples happened to meet and recognized that their dogs had to be related.  They arranged a playdate for the girls and plan to continue getting together.  Hopefully soon I’ll have photos of the two of them.


Leo (Celhaus Leonidas) at 1 year 3 months
“He’s doing great. He has such an awesome personality and just loves everyone (human and animal). I just took these photos as we eat a very late dinner outside.”

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]
