Miss Gray (Duchess) went to NW Montana, Mr. Blue (Ruger) went to southern Wyoming and Mr. Purple (Kaiser) went to Colorado as pets. Mr. Brown (Radik) went to Colorado as a pet and hopefully therapy dog.
Sadie (Celhaus Rhapsody in Black) at 1 year 6 months
“Sadie doing agility contacts; Sadie in the snow.”
Ruger (Celhaus Ruger Wesley George) at 1 year 4 months
“Ruger is amazing! We just love him so much. I recently remarried an amazing man. He is so good to me and the girls. He also came with 3 dogs, so Ruger now has his dog pack. They all get along so well together. Ruger loves the snow and the mountains. He also continues to keep an eye on his girls no matter what and likes to “help.” He is always in the middle of the projects. He usually sleeps next to my bed, but occasionally he goes to sleep in the girls’ rooms. He is my baby boy!”
1st photo: This was my view one morning when I woke up. It made me laugh so I had to take a picture.
2nd photo: This is his favorite thing to do. When the girls are out jumping, he puts a ball on the trampoline and waits for them to pick it up and throw it to him. Every time! He is not allowed on the trampoline. I don’t want him hurt. But he loves being around the girls when they are.
3rd photo: This is his best friend, Cooper. They are something else!
4th photo: We put in irrigation and laid sod this summer, and Ruger was in the middle of the entire project. He as so curious about every step. Pretty sure a few balls were buried as he would drop them in the holes and some were retrieved out by us and some stayed.
9th photo: I wasn’t driving when I took this one. Ruger likes to go with me every time I pick up Brooklyn from the late sports bus. We were at the bus stop waiting for her. He loves kids!
Radik (Celhaus Radik of Eagle Vista) at 1 year 7 months
Name story: Radik is German/Czech for “Famous ruler” and is pronounced “Rah-deek”.
“Radik on our hike this morning.”
Kaiser (Celhaus Romeo Stole My Heart) at 1 year 6 months
Photos 1 – 2: “Our boy is a mess. 😂 I bought him rats yesterday. I was aware since Kaiser does barn hunt they might not be able to share our immediate living space peacefully. But I tried. Nope! Much crying, pacing, panting…haha. My plan is to eventually keep them in my feed room/milking room in the barn but when it’s cold the little heater I use only keeps the temp in the 40’s. Not warm enough for the little guys. So, John and I carried them down to the laundry room in the basement (has a window etc for their circadian rhythms). Fine for last night but guess who discovered them today? All the things that make him so awesome (good nose, plenty of work drive, etc) also have the potential to be difficult 😎 He does NOT give up! We will see whether I can convince him it’s ok for them to be down there, or we get a bigger heater for the barn 😁”
Photos 3-7: “Here is Mr. cuteness with his new bed (since he and Ellie may have had a misadventure with the old bed months ago), and Costco themed toys I couldn’t pass up! I knew the Cosco toy pack wouldn’t last long but we are huge fans of Costco. Costco has fairly decent low-cost hot dog + coke for $1.50. And pizza slices. And the card says “good dog member” and has a couple of bites out of it. I couldn’t pass it up. One of the things I am always amazed at with Kaiser is he is always ready to go. You can tell when he’s had plenty of exercise because he’s chill and fine with relaxing. But if you walk to the door, he struts over in a big hurry to see what’s happening! I love his enthusiasm.”
Kaiser at 1 year 5 months
First 3 photos: Pazuzu (from the PP litter) and Kaiser meet.

6th photo: “1st place, finish title, high in Novice division. RATN in the bag.”
Rudi (Celhaus Rudolph) at 1 year 4 months
Name story: Rudolph, loosely translated, means well-known wolf.
Rudi is enjoying being “big brother” to Ava, from the SS litter.”
1st photo: watching the squirrels.
“Rudi and Ava are doing well. Ava is growing up quickly – physically and mentally. She’s such a pretty girl and is quite a thinker. She was a hit in her puppy class – again, had the instructor tell me she was impressed and had been telling the other instructors about her. She was great with the other puppies and just approaches everything with a calm confidence. Rudi tends to be the “goof” and Ava the watcher. They are well matched – she stands up for herself and they have a ton of fun playing. Rudi continues to be the perfect big brother!! As I write this, they are sharing the job of shredding a flossy bone – one on each end. ”
