Duchess (Celhaus Royalty) at 3 years 3 months
Photos 1-2: “She runs very, very fast. Loving on her terms. A tracker of gopher. Loves outside as long as she has shade. A beautiful girl.“
Photo 3: “Duchess at rest, a rarity”
Ruger (Celhaus Ruger Wesley George) at 3 years 3 months
“He is such a goofball! That’s a little pompom I bought for when we go to school sports games. The girls just kinda balanced it on his head.”
Ruger at 3 years
“”Instead of a party hat, Ruger got a birthday tie. He cracks me up with his smile. Haley said it looks like he’s going for a job interview.”
Ruger at 2 years 11 months
“”I had to share these because Ruger cracks me up. The dogs went to the groomer and he must have been feeling good. He looks like he’s smiling with those bottom teeth.”
Sadie (Celhaus Rhapsody in Black) at 2 years 6 months
“Sadie is non-stop, always ON, never tired, and look out if she does rest!!! And soooo friendly. Many have told us they do not like GSD, bad rep, bad experience, including some vets and vet techs. Except for Cody and Sadie, unlike another they have treated or met. Our Rehab vet actually had Cody for a test and it was taking a bit longer. She said the tech was hesitant to pull his blood work. The Rehab vet stayed and said it was ok…they ended up playing on the floor, getting kisses, etc. Sadie makes Cody look like a tired, crabby old guy. She loves her agility classes, and obed, too… again Gary too is learning. Often have said if he could’ve only done this more when he was YOUNGER and not so achy and sore. They all do exercises and warm-ups.”
Thought you’d enjoy seeing Sadie’s pic. She was high scoring GSD in Obedience at the Western PA GSD club’s trial. She did very well. Hasn’t received a score below 190; has her Beginner Novice title and is working on her Novice (CD) title this weekend. She’s an amiable companion; works hard and is full of energy. We’re not moving along as quickly in Agility since she likes to “run-her-own-course” 😉 I know, it’s all my fault that I didn’t show her where she should go. But we’re getting there.”
Sadie at 2 years 6 months
“Sadie got her first title in Obedience this fall – Beginner Novice. She took 1st place at GSD Club trials in September (197 1/2); 2nd in trials in October (194) and 3rd place (190) at our trials in November. She also got a leg for Novice B at our November trials. Unfortunately 2 other attempts she NQ’d. She is also doing well in Agility and will enter her first trial next week (12/18). Our agility instructor just loves Sadie – great temperament, great drive, smart by her estimation. Give Cantor and Lovely a big hug from us and tell them ‘Thanks for Sadie’!”
Kaiser (Celhaus Romeo Stole My Heart CD, CDX, BN, RE, RAE, RM, PT, FDC, SWN, SIA (AKC Advanced Interiors), SEA (AKC Advanced Exteriors), CGC, TN, RATS) at 3 years 3 months
See Kai working at the Dave Kroyer Seminar, September 17-18, 2022
Photos 1-2: “Kai finished his CDX title! Of course I’m so excited; we’ve worked for a year to get it done. We have much work left to do. He also finished his Rat Master title; he loves doing that! He got his five legs in seven runs, both misses were me calling clear with one rat left on course. Not too bad! Also he finished his BCAT, and he really understands the fun of the lure now. He does it between 7-8 seconds and we do a rowdy round of tug after. There are days I think I won’t do FastCat again because it’s always a bit of a weird, unorganized even chaotic scene. But then he runs and loves it so we will likely go again when it works out.
Photo 3: There are deer just ambling down the sidewalk; he kept a careful eye on them.
Photo 4: How Kai camps.
Kaiser at 3 years 1 month
“I got the AKC GSD rally ranking report. We were #22 in 2021!! Wow. those ones at the top, crazy time and money! The top rally GSD had 42 triple Q’s in that one year.“
Photos 1-2: “Kaiser had a good barn hunt, with two Crazy 8 runs (70 and 80 points each). So in crazy 8 there are 8 rats on the course and you have two minutes. So far the most we’ve found is 6 plus the tunnel and climb, which is great but one day we will find all 8 and that will be awesome! He also got two more master legs with a first and second place, so just one more leg and he will have the five he needs to title!”
Photos 3-4: “Last night was my dog training group’s annual picnic. Kaiser won several awards, including the traveling trophy for novice and two high score in club plaques for 2021.”
Kaiser at 3 years
“How can three years have flown by?? Thanks for the birthday 🥳 wishes, we will celebrate this amazing boy today (well, every day!). We did a powder photoshoot. Kai is so great about so much, they just loved him! At first, he was not quite sure about the cornstarch powder poofing out as we put it on, but with a liver treat he was understanding the game in no time. We got all our jumps (about 16) including powdering in between, done in approximately 20 minutes.“
Kaiser at 2 years 11 months
6/22/22: “Kai finished his Advanced Exteriors title last weekend.”
“Helping unload after a goat show. Just got this notice: ‘The GSDCA Performance Statistics Committee has completed analysis of the 2021 Obedience Ratings and are pleased to inform you that Celhaus Romeo Stole My Heart was determined to be the 2nd dog in the Novice A class.’”
Radik (Celhaus Radik of Eagle Vista RN, TKN, CGC) at 3 years
Name Story: Radik is German/Czech for “Famous ruler” and is pronounced “Rah-deek”.
“We’re on a long camping trip, currently in Arkansas, and he’s met so many people that love him💕. Our next-door campers lost their 15-year-old mastiff just recently and Radik just sat with man and let the man pet him, and pet him, and pet him. And his wife gave him treats and talked and talked to him. It was very sweet. He is such a good boy and is friendly to all people and all dogs he meets (except the grumpy ones and I don’t let him near those). We love him so very much. Thank you for being such a wonderful breeder! THANK YOU for our wonderful boy.”
Radik at 2 years 11 months
“Radik on a camping trip with us through Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas. He travels great and has not once tried to hurt any of the many ill-mannered dogs that have come charging out at us (one even slightly nipped the back of my leg!). He is protective of the truck and camper though.”
Photo 1: “Radik in front of the Missouri River.”
Photo 2: “Radik at a campground in KS where he kept a careful eye on those buffalo.”
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. ”
