I have not posted in almost a month. I am hoping to be able to post on more frequent basis. Well, we returned and have recovered from our fabulous Yellowstone trip. Were we did nine hikes out of 11 days in Yellowstone. Our shortest hike was 3.5 miles and our longest 7.5 miles with most in the 5 mile range. These were not flat strolls, but up and down the mountain hikes at approximately 7,500 to 8,500 feet elevation. We returned very fit and very tired!
Upon our return, I had grass two to three feet high, which took me a week to mow because both mowers decided to repeatedly breakdown. This week, the start of July, we will be spending time grooming and heart worming all our dogs. Being the July 4 weekend we are also filled with boards, which are customer’s dogs that we are kenneling while customers are on vacation. These are some of my excuses for not posting, but as promised, I will post more frequently.
We did miss our dogs in Yellowstone and many times while hiking, we wished that Grand Champion Kodi could have been with us. However, given that there are wolves and grizzly bears in Yellowstone, it is far too dangerous for the wildlife and dogs to have them come into contact. Even Service dogs in Yellowstone are limited to parking lots and hotels.
We have a wonderful new litter that will be ready to go home July 13, 2013. This is both young parents first litter, but they have produced solid temperaments and big healthy puppies. The dam Heidelberg’s Carlie is from Champion Oliver and the Sire Heidelberg’s Texoma is from Grand Champion Heidelberg’s Kodi. Crossing Grand Champion Kodi with Champion Oliver lines has proved to be a good breeding and match. Look for these puppies to be posted with pricing on our web page sometime after July 6, 20013. We are currently accepting deposits on this litter.
Ask me a Question and I will provide my opinion. Also, please see our web page: KeystoneGermanShepherds
