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.

Ranger (Celhaus Queen Ranger) at 4 years
Ranger is doing great! We moved recently from downtown Denver to the suburbs of Denver in Lakewood, CO. After COVID, Matt and I each only have to go into the office once a week, so it was time to get out of the city. Ranger now has a big yard for her to chase the ball in and we can walk to the hiking trails from the house — she’s in doggy heaven! She’s taken up bringing balls to the sliding door that connects to the kitchen and the backyard and throwing them at the sliding door to let us know she wants a ball session. It’s hilarious.  She’s been doing well — we can’t believe she’s already four, although if you asked her she’s still two in her heart. We taught Ranger a new trick — spin — and it’s been funny to watch her offer it randomly to try to get some treats.”

Quizz (Celhaus Question Me Or Not) at 4 years
“Quizz received her AKC Farm Dog Certified title certificate.”

Quizz at 3 years 7 months

Cash (Celhaus Quiggley) at 3 years 3 months
“Cash met our new grandson, Linus, today. Cash was infatuated and would not leave Linus’ side.  A few licks but no nibbles.  Some pictures of the meeting.

Cash at 3 years

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.”

Hilti (Celhaus Qua Hilti) at 2 years 9 months
“Snow crazy!”

Hilti at 2 years 5 months
