GloryToo Puppy’s Photos

Miss Rainbow went to a biologist in Alaska to search out wolverine lairs and bat nests for research. Miss Pink went to Montana as a pet and Mr. Green stayed in Sheridan as a pet. Mr. White went to Yellowstone Park as a family pet and Search & Rescue dog, though they haven’t pursued SAR training due to family obligations. Mr. Blue went to Casper as a pet and therapy dog.
I kept Miss Orange (“Lovely”, see her page.)

I’ve never had anyone name one of my pups “Otto” but for some strange reason we now have TWO pups in the LL litter whose call names are “Otto”. At least one is a sable and one is a bicolor so we can easily tell them apart.
NN & SS Litters
GloryToo bred to Cantor
The NN litter was whelped 12/17/17
NN Litter background
The NN litter temperament test results were used for the illustrated police/narcotics temperament test and the illustrated Search & Rescue test pages.
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. Blue (Stetson) went to Billings to compete in obedience, rally, nosework and barn hunt and to get Canine Good citizen titles. His new owner was so impressed that she is now considering herding, too. Miss White (Hildy) stayed here in Sheridan and will be a therapy dog working with the nursing home residents. Miss Green (Hazel) also stayed here in Sheridan and will be a companion and fishing buddy. Miss Pink (Scully) went to Seattle where she will be a therapy dog in children’s hospitals and also train for cadaver work (Search & Rescue). Miss Purple (Ava) went to Wisconsin to compete in obedience and possibly Schutzhund. Ava joins Rudi, from the RR litter.
I kept Miss Yellow, who is now “Hopeful.” She is a breeding prospect, will compete in agility and nosework, and be a therapy dog. Her registered name will be “Celhaus Song of Hope in Hard Times”. That was inspired by the many, many comments I got from people who said following the litter diary on my website and enjoying their photos had lifted them up during the early, dark days of the pandemic shut-down.
Here she is at 13 months, at a Rally Obedience class
See Hopeful’s page.

Otto D (Celhaus Lancelot Otto) at 6 years 4 months
“Otto D is doing great! Hope you’re having a great summer and staying cool.”
Otto D at 5 years 10 months
“Otto D is doing very well. Always the gentleman but sometimes led astray by the wild and crazy antics of his little birddog sister Rosie. Even still, best doggo ever – we’re so blessed!”
Lucien (Celhaus Niall Lucien Stieber) at 4 years 5 months
Lucien is in training for Search & Rescue.
“Lucien in the mountains of southern Colorado, searching for human remains in still water last Sunday. It was a training, so he (almost) always finds something. In this case it was a human pelvis dangling from a float, low in the water. He scented it from pretty far away.”
Lucien at 3 years 9 months
Lando (Celhaus Naboo Pirate) at 4 years 4 months
Lando is an avalanche dog
“We passed our Advanced Validation at Vail for Colorado Rapid Avalanche Deployment. He is a super star!”
Credo (Celhaus Nanawatai Gloriouz Credo of Cantor) at 4 years 4 months
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.

Photo 2: Happy Mother’s Day!”
Credo at 4 years 3 months
Photo 1: “Here’s a silly photo of our St. Patrick’s Day attire.”
Photo 2: “We went on a 3.5 mile walk around a local lake after work.”
Hildy (Celhaus Seraph’s Serenade) at 2 years
Stetson (Celhaus Six-Shooters Spur N Saddles) at 2 years 1 month
Photo 1 (6/12/22): “Again I have to let you know there is no better GSD than Stetson, I don’t care what their other accomplishments are, he is THE BEST. We had a Norfolk extravaganza here today with seven Norfolks from 5 months to 13 years, from single dog homes to strictly Norfolk homes to the conglomeration Stetson resides in. Even when he is growled or snapped at he does not react negatively, his most dramatic move is to just leave the area and refuse to engage them. The people here were debating which dog to steal away with, Lizzie or Stetson! Thank you!”
Photo 2: “Nap time.”
Photo 3: “Stetson and Gino in step”
Stetson at 2 years
Photo 1: “Stetson’s 2nd birthday photos. It was torture, but he earned a liver treat.”
Photo 3: “He is such a good boy, but needed Lizzie as his emotional support pup when he was having some body work done, similar to chiropractry. He loves all the little ones.”
Photo 4: “Poor boy has to curl up in a tiny bed. He is reminding me that he is just a puppy still.”
Stetson at 1 year 11 months
“Today I put Stetson in the back seat of John’s truck and went to get Gino. Next thing Stetson is behind me! He got in the front seat and jumped out the driver’s side window! He did then sit for a mug shot and went back in the truck with the window up! He also has a new charge to watch over. He continues to be stellar! He laid down to be less intimidating then just waited for her to come to him; as she did, he remained fully down and calm even when she decided to be all excited and bounce about in front of him. The only things he moved were his ears and the tiniest tail wag when she barked. She is barely above three pounds so he outweighs her by about 80! Lizzie is10 weeks old, I just picked her up yesterday.”
Hazel (Celhaus Scarlett Scout) at 2 years
“Two years old! Taking her to Tongue River Canyon tomorrow for a hike before snake season starts.”
I asked Tom about the brown on her legs, as she had been solid black from birth, and he
said she got it last summer. To be solid black for over a year and then change colors is a new one to me.
Bridger (Celhaus Lodestar Bridger) at 5 years
Otto P (Celhaus Lead the Way Otto) at 4 years 9 months
“I’m glad you let me have Otto. He is a remarkable dog. He goes to work with me at my office and has a circuit that he runs—the secretaries all buy treats for him. In fact he goes everywhere with me, including hotels all around the northern states. He is a good boy. He is remarkably healthy and resilient. Still chases rabbits, though, and he knows better. You breed great dogs. Truly great dogs. I am grateful that you let me share him. Best. Paul”
Photo 1: “I have never let dogs on the couch. But I’m now 64 and Otto is excepted from that rule. No beds, though, although I am wondering if my daughter lets him up when she comes back to town.”
Photo 2: “Otto with his friend Bridger on Gull Lake, MN.”
Photo 3: “Otto, Gretchen, and retriever friend Mable, who visits often.”
Photo 4: “Otto in truck bed with birds. No, Otto didn’t hunt these birds. But he did get on one. Mable did all the rest. But we did let him try. And he darned near pulled a pheasant out of the sky when I missed it.”
