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

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 is “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.

Hazel (Celhaus Scarlett Scout) at 2 years 5 months
“Random pic.  Happy dog!”

Hazel 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.  

Stetson (Celhaus Six-Shooters Spur N Saddles) at 2 years 5 months

Lucien (Celhaus Niall Lucien Stieber) at 4 years 11 months
Lucien is in training for Search & Rescue. 
“Lucien on a training mission.  There was no find in this search. In the pics where Lucien is sniffing up the aspen, he was displaying great interest but did not pinpoint anything. He was probably catching scent pooled in the tree branches. This was a negative search for HR, meaning there was nothing to find in his sector. The search was meant to clear the area. He could have been picking up scent from a mile away, hence the interest. But he didn’t pinpoint anything with a final alert because there was nothing there. That’s a good thing. None of the dogs pinpointed anything, though they all expressed interest (with no final alert) at some point or another.”

Lucien at 4 years 5 months
“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.”

Credo (Celhaus Nanawatai Gloriouz Credo of Cantor) at 4 years 11 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.
“Here are our Thanksgiving photos.  The boys got a special sweet potato, egg and turkey-bone-broth feast..”

Credo at 4 years 9 months
“Here are a few pictures from our camping trip this past weekend.  He’s just the best boy.  I’m thankful for him every day.  He’s a very good big brother to Arlo, the rescue I got last year.”

Frieda (Celhaus Nagorski) at 4 years 8 months with Max & Gunnar from the TT litter, 2 years old

Hildy (Celhaus Seraph’s Serenade) at 2 years 4 months
“A beautiful day for a hike in the mountains.”

Hildy at 2 years

Stetson (Celhaus Six-Shooters Spur N Saddles) at 2 years 3 months
 9/3/22:  “Stetson still loves to wrestle with the short ones.  He might think scentwork is for others, but he is the absolute best big brother for silly pups and escort for me doing chores. 

9/17/22:  “This boy is incredible.  Our grandson found a kitten in the haystack today.  It was just a skeleton with hair and barely alive, maybe a tad stronger this evening after some food.  It is so fragile I wasn’t going to try to clean off the spills from trying to get it to swallow.  Stetson has been standing guard by it, so I let him stay when I attempted the latest feeding.  He gave the kitten several good licks and nuzzles.  I didn’t need to worry about washing off spills; Stetson took care of that, then stayed by the crate until the kitten went to sleep.  If Stetson has his way, he will soon have a kitten to call his own.  He absolutely loves babes.  Unfortunately, the kitten died.  Stetson tried so hard to make that kitty come back.  It was almost an hour before he would let me take the body outside.” 

I told Pat about what a man attending the Kroyer seminar said today.  He made the comment that he was so happy to meet the famous Cel.  I said “famous???  He replied that his wife was scared of GSDs after being attacked by one as a child, but she loves mine and says she loves to interact with mine and has no fear at all.
Pat’s reply: “That is a perfect description of what everyone says about the dogs you breed. We had a lady here a couple weeks ago that was bitten by a GSD when she was 12 and scared of them ever since, although Stetson can be overly welcoming at times. He was calmer than usual, and she ended up being happy to have him by her. My veterinarian’s practice loves Stetson and wishes more GSDs like him were around, same with Camilla the trainer.

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!”

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!”

Hopeful (Celhaus Song of Hope In Hard Times) at 13 months
Hopeful at a Rally Obedience class

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.”
