I wanted to write you a quick note about Drager. He is truly one of the most wonderful dogs I have ever owned. Thad got deployed a few months ago and Drager has been the most amazing companion. Drager holds many hats in this house. Not only is he a loyal friend, but he is also my landscaper (as seen by a few well placed holes), running coach and cuddle buddy. He is strong willed but I wouldn't trade him for the world. His personality has taught me even more patience, and I am a nurse so that is saying a lot. :) He is always so happy to wake me up in the morning with the sloppiest of kisses. In the afternoons he loves playing hide and seek. I hide with one of his toys and he has to find me. In the evening he knows it's run time and that's when I see him get truly excited. Trail runs are one of his favorite activities. He may be stubborn at home on occasion but he turns into a different dog on runs. He stays right at my side and listens to every command. He constantly looks up at me with the most adoring eyes, looking for recognition for his good behavior. I swear that dog is smiling as we run around southern California. He has been the best buddy a person can have, especially while Thad is gone. He is always at my side waiting to see what adventure we will partake in. Drager loves Thad so much and I can't wait until they are reunited. For the first few weeks while Thad was gone, Drager sat by the door every night waiting for his return. That dog is going to ballistic when Thad walks through that door later this year. I guess the purpose of this letter is to thank you. Thank you for allowing us to have this special dog in our lives. Lebenshunger is by far a breed above the rest. Thank you for my wonderful dog and ever loyal friend. I look forward to one day purchasing another sibling for Drager. Any litters due this year? :) Hope all is well with you and Patti!

Dear Kevin & Patti,
Words can't begin to describe how thankful I am that somehow
you were able to bring this canine angel into my life. Blinkin, as
we affectionately call her, has been the perfect ideal family
member through and through. With each passing day she
amazes me more and morewith every single thing she does. Not only is the most
friendly and sociable dog I have ever encountered, but she is a genius!!! I can remember
the first day I brought her home from your farm......... Its like she already knew how to
sit on command. Did you teach her that or is she just a natural born genius? I feel like
this email is such a small token of every fiber in my being that is thankful for allowing this
creature to walk around and bring me joy with each passing breath. I attached some
pictures so you can see how she grew up.... Thank you so much and keep your website
updated... I will undoubtedly come to you again when its time to get her a sister in a
year or so.
|Hello Kevin / Patty,
Just took a couple of new pictures of Justice. He’s a little over 8 months old now and
doing very well. I attached a picture of him alone and a picture w/ his “Nanny”, my
Uncle Emile (who will be 89 in less than a month!) Needless to say, you’ll see they are
best buds. Uncle Emile still watches him 3 to 4 times per week and visits him every
Sunday morning. He loves his Justice!!
We were at the Vet 2 days ago and he loves everyone there – they have a hard time
examining him because he tries to kiss the Vet Tech and Vet as they are trying to give
him his examinations… LOL
I look at your web site, and the dogs and always am going to send you a photo of Rudy. He is still a wonderful dog and very happy. This is him with Sydney. He is a very loved part of the family.
Hi, I think many breeders like to know where there dogs are and how they are doing, so I wanted to share a few pictures of Sasha and a little information about her (born 11/30/2005 - Sire: Ingo vom Haus Schalk, Dam: Dharma vom Lebenshunger).
We acquired her several months ago after our Golden died. She is thriving in our home, learning to swim, making great friends with the black lab neighbor and has been going to Schutzhund training for about 6 weeks - is a wonderful tracker, good generally at obedience (I say generally because she is very obedient but LOVES to keep her nose on the ground rather than look up - we are working on this) and goes crazy with the fire hose toy, all the while wagging her tail 50 miles an hour.
We both work so she goes to "day care" during the day, goes everywhere we can take her and is great with the old folks at the facility where I volunteer. She is excellent with children in the neighborhood and her temperament is extremely stable and friendly.
Had her first meeting with the Easter Bunny at a fundraiser for a rescue the other day and I wanted to share a few pictures with you. She is the best, very happy and loved.
Take Care and enjoy the pictures.
We're the proud parents of Inga, the adorable little puppy, we brought home last spring. Just as you predicted we would, we’re writing to tell you that Inga is the best dog in the world! She is our little princess. She is so much fun, and we can’t believe we ever lived without her.
Inga has a wonderful temperament. She is sweet and loves being around babies, kids, adults, and other dogs (once she’s established they’re friendly). She’s great with my parents dogs (a female German Shepherd and a Golden Retriever). We bring Inga to their house for “play dates” (She’s like our child!). The three dogs could run circles around the yard and play ball for hours together!
Inga has quite the life! Her spring and summer consisted of swimming in the pool, and hanging out at the beach. We think she’s part duck. She loves swimming. Now that the weather is getting cooler, we’re trying to cram in a few last swims!
Along with being extremely loved, Inga is probably the most photographed dog ever to have lived. We thought you’d like to see how beautiful she is so we have included some pictures.
Notice the little ridge on her nose. We call it her “Mohawk”. It really is adorable. As silly as she looks in the pictures with the cone on her head, we had to send it. She was spayed a few weeks ago (when she turned 6 months) and kept biting at the area. The result a silly cone that she did not appreciate! To make up for it, we gave her a little vanilla ice cream each night when we put the cream on her belly. She loved that!
We can’t thank you both enough for bringing little Inga (not so little anymore, 53Lbs.) into our lives. We love her lots! We hope all is going well for you both, and we’ll keep in touch to let you know how she’s doing!

you're right--he was worth waiting for!!
Right now he is sleeping on my feet. It is quite surprising how calm he is and how quickly he adjusts. But what really amazed us is that after 3 hours on the road he started crying and just needed a 2 minute roadside potty-break to poop. Now how did he figure all that out at just 8 weeks?! Cabot is a good name for him as he is a confident and eager explorer. And to top it all off he is just gorgeous!!!
What else I really appreciate, Patti, is how relaxed Cabot is. While he is astonishingly alert and attentive to my moves his body does not have any nervous tension or that startle stiffness that a young animal in new circumstances often exhibits.
I know all of that doesn't come by accident. Thanks for your good work!

Kevin and Patti,

Have a wonderful New Year.
