OO Litter
bred to Cantor
Whelped 8/22/18:  2 males and 2 females, all black sables

Mr. Blue (Titus) went to Utah for Search and Rescue. Mr. Green (Finley) stayed close in Wyoming as a pet. Miss Pink (Leidy) went to northwest Wyoming for Search & Rescue. Miss Purple (Pilot) went to the Spokane area for competition in a variety of venues: tracking, nosework, agility, herding and maybe more.

Leidy (Celhaus Odina Leidy) at 1 year 11 months
Name story: Odina is Native American for mountain; Leidy is a mountain of which Tammy has particularly fond memories.

“Summer fun.”

“Did some SAR training today.  The photo shows Leidy at the cadaver source (black spot on tree).  She’s doing great with her training.  Hopefully I’ll be able to certify her this summer.”

Finley (Celhaus Onyx) at 1 year 11 months

“Thought you’d enjoy these couple pictures of Finley. I still think he’s part polar bear…but when we go to a lake, I think he turns into part seal or sea lion.  We went hiking this past weekend, and I’ve always laughed that the number of fish I catch when Finley’s around drastically decreases. At this lake, I tried to position myself on a rock where he couldn’t come sit next to me and cause trouble. When he does that, he whines the whole time that I’m not catching fish fast enough, then when I catch one, he usually ends up tangled in my fly line; then of course I have one hell of a time trying to get the fish off the hook because Finley’s trying to snatch “his” fish. So…here I’m thinking I’m in the clear, and that Finley would wait patiently until I’d catch a fish and bring it over for him to investigate. But of course, when he found out there wasn’t enough room on the rock for both me and him, he decided to swim around in the lake below me until I caught a fish. Then it was every bit of a rodeo trying to wrangle every single fish around him as he would swim after each one once it was hooked. And then he’d wait below me in the water (like a seal waiting for someone to throw them a fish), and wait for me to toss the fish back so he could chase it and bark at it. Needless to say, there’s not a lake that we hike to where anyone else at the lake gets a show with Finley and me.”

Leid(Celhaus Odina Leidy) at 1 year

“Thank you for breeding such great dogs.”  
(That’s Laser in the one photo with her. He has the same sire as Cantor does. I had him for a while but he had an elbow problem that needed surgery and, since I couldn’t breed him, I placed him with friends as a Search & Rescue Dog and he’s doing fantastic. He’s a kind of uncle, then, to Leidy – no wonder they look alike.)

Leidy at 37 weeks, training in Search & Rescue

Titus (Celhaus Octavius Titus) at 17 weeks
the former Mr. Blue

Name story: Octavius, was the family masculine name is Gaius Octavius, who became known as Cesar Augustus of Rome the name means Magnificent or Majestic. He was known as a great tactician, philosopher, and statesman who brought Rome out of Civil war following the death of Julius Cesar and into a golden age for the empire know as the Pax Romana (Roman Peace). Since we learned that trying to call any two dogs with an O name is just bringing them both to us we liked Titus who was another Roman Emperor and his name means depending on culture, pleasing, saved, of the giants (He has big paws). We felt a call name of Titus sounds nothing like Oakley and matches his personality he loves to please and work hard with a smile on his face.

“Titus has been doing extremely well, his days have been filled with puppy games, adventures around town and in the wilderness full of exposure to new things. He is loving his Search & Rescue training, thus far it has all been positive fun and in the form of puppy games. He has a nose for the cadaver and just loves to find it, it is truly amazing to see him having fun with it.”

“You were right when you told us he is a fun loving special boy, and we are doing everything we can to keep him happy and engaged.  Titus and our female (Oakley) are growing together and she really has taking a liking to him, even though he loves to tease and harass her!  I hope you have had a great Christmas, thank you again for a special boy!  We hope you enjoy the photos, our team photographer is working on more images hopefully soon we will have them. “

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]
