NN Litter in their New Homes
Mr. Blue went to Colorado to be an avalanche dog at a ski resort. Mr. White went to Santa Fe, NM for Search & Rescue. Miss Yellow went to Montana to do agility and nosework. Mr. Green and Mr. Red 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 went to California as a pet, the second dog her people have gotten from me. Miss Pink went to California as a pet. Mr. Brown 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 research think may be caught from exposure to wildlife and toxins in the soil, and died at 4 months.
Lando (Celhaus Naboo Pirate) at 1 year
Lando is in training to be an avalanche dog and just passed his first certification. Way to go, you two!!!!!
Willys (Celhaus Nineteen Forty-One) at 1 year with big sister, Harper (Celhaus Zeal for Life), 11 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.
Frieda (Celhaus Nagorski) at 1 year 3 months
Credo (Celhaus Nanawatai Gloriouz Credo of Cantor) at 13 months
the former Mr. Green
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.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy Easter from Credo
Credo at 1 year 5 months
“Happy Father’s Day, Cantor!”
Noir (Celhaus Noir) at 1 year
“Noir is perfect. I love her. She’s everything I hoped for. Thank you.”
Axel (Celhaus Nash Axel Geisner) at 1 year
“Axel is doing very well. He loves his tennis balls and running. I found glow-in-the-dark balls so we could play after it gets dark.”
Lucien (Celhaus Niall Lucien Stieber) at 4 months
Watching helicopter do flyovers. Lucien (in full aviator regalia) and I (turquoise shirt/ orange helmet) are to the left of National Guardsman. Look how calm Lucien is as dirt and pebbles fly and rotors roar! Lucien in full aviator regalia. In the photo without the regalia, he’s waiting to do cadaver training. Lucien with his “hero, ” Leopold. Lulcien’s absolutely super good. My team president says he’s an ”awesome dog.”
Sophie (Celhaus Nightingale’s Song) at 19 weeks
I’ve been trying to be better at taking photos. At the ranch, hunting wabbbits! And a lovely ‘watch me’. Just look at that side movement…just gorgeous! I have got to say that watching her move is pure joy! She is ‘poetry in motion’!!! whether she’s coming or going or from the side. I just love watching her!
Sophie is just awesome! Since it is just the 2 of us, I’m not getting too many photos. Nevertheless, we are together most of the time. She gets good exercise when I’m caring for Portia, my horse, and then we walk the ranch…most of the time with me throwing a ball and her chasing it (Chuck-it really helps my range.) There are also rabbits and prairie dogs to chase so it’s a very interesting place to spend time. I’m thinking you’ll appreciate this story. Yesterday, I was lying down before going to work when Sophie decided to ‘share’ her current bone with me and dropped it on my head. Ouch! Ended up with lump over my eye when I went to work. Aleve is my friend! Hurt like heck but what an honor! She is definitely something special! She says, Hej! (that’s Swedish for ‘Hi’ – I wanted you to know that she’s so smart, she’s bi-lingual!)
