Mr. Blue (now “Dancer”) went to a friend in Spokane who has his sister, Pilot, from the OO litter.  He, too, will compete in all kinds of venues.  Miss Green (now Solo) went to southern Utah for Search and Rescue.  My friend and training partner, Laurie, took Miss Purple (now “Veda”) to train her as a service dog. 
See Veda’s service dog training log.  We will eventually place her like we did Talon from the TT litter.  I publish Veda’s training log on the website as Laurie sends it to me. 
I kept Miss Pink for breeding and competition.  Her call name is “Varoom!!” 
When the pups finally hit the ground and were healthy, I mentioned in an email that I had been afraid to jinx things by working on possible names.  Several friends sent some great names, including Pat, who sent “Varoom!!”  Her registered name is “Celhaus Victory Against All Odds.”
See Varoom!’s page.

See her visiting the Alzheimer’s Unit at 10 weeks old.

Finley (Celhaus Onyx) at 4 years 3-9 months
“I definitely owe you some Finley pictures. I always feel bad bombarding you with more photos (as I know you get so many from so many other people). But…we’re way past due on an update. I’ll try and get you some pictures soon. A quick story…I actually caught Finley this weekend while fishing. We went hiking as a family, and Gannett caught a fish on his little kids fishing pole. And I wasn’t paying attention to where I set the fishing pole down. Of course, when I went to put the fish back, Fin had to dive in after it like he always does. But his leg got tangled up with the fishing line and the fly I had on Gannett’s pole got stuck in Finley’s leg. Nothing like a mini-operation in the mountains. But we got the fly out pretty easily, then Finley was back in action, chasing fish and whining to me and Gannett when we weren’t catching any.  Seems like our pictures are fewer and far between during the winter. Didn’t have too many good ones of Fin over the winter months. Hopefully we can get lots of good ones this summer.  Here’s a few pictures of Finley this past winter. Enjoy!”

Good morning and Happy Easter!!  The kids got a egg (plastic drink cup) this morning. It was fun watching their different techniques to get the treat out of the bottom.  Pilot stuck her nose in and tried to get it with her tongue. Then she would use her paw to get the cup off  Dancer would take the cup and flip it and then look for the treat. 🙂.”

Photo 3: 
“Beautiful day to play in all the snow.  I just got the gate to the dog yard open today. Veda was the only one to figure out she could go up and over the 5’ fence that is buried under the snow, and proudly posed to have her picture taken afterwards.  Silly girl!”

Titus (Celhaus Octavius Titus CGC) at 4 years 3 months
Titus got an OFA Excellent hip rating!!!  Congratulations!  He passed all his other health screenings (OFA elbows, OFA cardiac, OFA eyes, OFA thyroid, and is also free of vonWillebrand’s/hemophilia).  He has the following SAR certifications through Tri-State K9 Search & Rescue: Wilderness Live Find Area, Cadaver 1 and Cadaver 2.  He also has his AKC Canine Good Citizen title. 
Lovely was bred to Titus.  The XX litter was whelped July 11th, 2022.
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.

Photo 4:  “”This final photo was taken a couple of months ago before it got really cold outside.”

Solo (Celhaus Venture Solo) at 1 year 1 month
Solo is training for Search & Rescue.  Their house burned down shortly after they got Shiloh.  They are rebuilding it.
10/26: “Solo is doing great!  She is completely integrated into our home.  We are rebuilding the house and I just broke my arm, so her SAR training has been post-posted but still in the plans.  She is the best!”
11/26: “Solo is doing famously!  Obviously with house rebuild, training has been slower than I want, but it is fine.  We have all the foundations in place like the drives and box work.  She is a gem!! Perfect for us!  Rebuild is slow, too, but progressing.  Laying the foundations this week.”
