QQ Litter

QQ Litter (Mercy bred to Cantor)

Whelped 3/7/19:  6 females & 2 males

Miss Orange (Envy) went to Utah for Search & Rescue; Mr. Blue (Olaf) went to Durango, CO for Search & Rescue and to do therapy dog work with veterans; Mr. Purple (Cash) went to Minnesota for agility, nosework and obedience competition; and Miss White (Ranger) went to Denver for possible competition and therapy dog work.  Miss Yellow (Neutron) went to Idaho Falls for all kinds of competition: agility, obedience, tracking, scent work and possibly barn hunt. Miss Green (Maya) and Miss Pink (Hilti) went to Colorado as pets.  Miss Red (Quizz) went to my good friend, Laurie Schwabauer, to be trained as a service dog.  No one qualified to take her when she was ready, so we placed her in a great home where she will compete in agility and other venues as well as be a therapy dog and, hopefully, be part of the Underdog program if/when it is approved statewide.  Those are the dogs who go with children when they have to testify in court, to comfort them and give them confidence.

The UU litter, whelped January 27, 2021, is a repeat of this litter.

Olaf (Celhaus Quasi Prince Olaf) at 2 years 10 months
Olaf is in training both for Search and Rescue and as a Therapy Dog
“I have been rather busy with Mr. Oli.  We have been working on the search and rescue training and his progress is moving forward but he has been making progress.  He has also been doing therapy work through the VA.  We are at 15 visits but AKC will not recognize his work unless he is certified by an organization certifies him so we are starting that process in March.  He is so delightful with his social skills. I have seen him in action with the veterans so he should be fine.  He is really changing into a big bodied male and filling out.  It’s fun to watch him grow.  I had to send him out last night to herd the cats who had escaped to the yard through the garage.   It took him no more than three minutes to have both of them at the back door demanding in the house.   Meanwhile Oli is sitting below the step up to the patio and waiting on me.  Once we had them inside he had to take roll call and make sure they were both in.  It was amazing to watch him work that task.”

Olaf at 2 years 3 months
“Just thought it was time to send you an update on Olaf.  He is doing well.  We did Search and Rescue last night and working towards certification in the near future.  He is also working on his Therapy Dog visits.  We take veterans down to the Albuquerque VA clinic once a week in the DAV van.  He enjoys the veterans and the enjoy his company.  My grandson was born May 18th so Oli & I traveled up to the Portland area to see his parents and him.  The pictures are all taken in Oregon, mostly around Coos Bay.  We both enjoyed Coos Bay because the highs were in the mid 60’s.”

Maya (Celhaus Querida Maya) at 2 years 9 mos
Hello!  Update on Maya!  She is doing great!  Spoiled for sure.  She is awesome. She loves meeting new peple.  I am pretty sure the entire neighborhood has met her.

Quizz and Keona had to stay home while she was at school. They sure were happy to see her tonight. They’ve been together nearly every day, all day, all summer.  So they were ready and waiting by the gate, howling away when we got home.”
