GloryToo bred to Cantor
Mr. Blue (Lando) went to Colorado to be an avalanche dog at a ski resort. Mr. White (Lucien) went to Santa Fe, NM for Search & Rescue. Miss Yellow (Sophie) went to Montana to do agility and nosework. Mr. Green (Credo) and Mr. Red (Willy) went to Colorado as pets, though Mr. Green will hopefully do nosework and tracking. Mr. Red is the third dog of mine for his family. Miss Purple (Freda) went to California as a pet, the second dog her people have gotten from me. Miss Pink (noir) went to California as a pet. Mr. Brown (Axel) went to Gillette, WY, about 100 miles east of here. Mr. Gray went to Buffalo, WY (just 35 miles from here) as a pet, but unfortunately he contracted Dysautonomia, a fatal mystery condition that researchers think may be caught from exposure to wildlife and toxins in the soil, and died at 4 months.

Willy (Celhaus Nineteen Forty-One) at 2 years with big sister, Harper (Celhaus Zeal for Life), who is 12 years 2 months
Name Story: Well, I’m a bit of a Jeep fanatic, and the first civilian Jeeps were produced by Willys-Overland (pronounced “Willis”) in the mid ‘30s. I have one half of one of those originals (a 1940-something. converting it into a camping trailer), as well as a new Jeep with the Willys package (a standard Jeep with better suspension, but very bare bones). So, when Hardin mentioned it, it was a lock. 1941 was the first year Willys-Overland produced the Jeep and applied for a patent.
“Willy is having a wonderful birthday with his new elephant, and Harper (Celhaus Z Litter) is still tolerating his antics …”

Credo (Celhaus Nanawatai Gloriouz Credo of Cantor) celebrating his 2nd birthday
Name Story: Nanawatai is “traditionally used to refer to a request for sanctuary, whereby the host must be willing to fight or die for the sake of anyone who comes knocking at his door seeking refuge, even if it is a sworn enemy.” The Z in Gloriouz is a nod to the older brother he never got to meet, my Zeus.
Credo at 1 year 11 months
11/28/19: “Happy Thanksgiving! We got 20” of snow Monday and Tuesday, and Credo absolutely loved it! I took a snow day on Tuesday and we just lounged around, watching movies and sitting by the fireplace… but he kept wanting to go outside and jump around in it like a little fox! I can’t believe the NN litter is already almost 2.”
12/6/19: “I took Credo to Scheel’s today and let him pick out his stocking stuffers. He was interested in the grizzly, so I figured we better take his picture with it. On the way home, we stopped by the Loveland Visitor’s Center for the other sweet photo op.”
