Just an Update!


Howdy everyone! It’s been awhile … a long while … since I blogged, but I thought I would let you know what’s going on in my world!

As many of you know, I retired from breeding German Shepherds in June 2017. This was primarily due to several health issues that I have had going on, plus all my dogs are now “seniors” like me.

In April 2018, I had a major back surgery, and recovery time for this surgery is about 1 year. At this time, the prognosis is good, and I think I’m over the most painful part of the surgery. Now, I have to eat my veggies and drink my milk so my spinal fusion will graft and heal!

Next up on the my health board is getting rid of four big kidney stones. Surgery for that is scheduled in July 2018. Well, my husband is taking good care of me, and trying to keep me on the straight and narrow path to recovery!

Now for a little update on my GSD babies:
* Wailana vom Haus Kirschental, aka LANA, is now 12 1/2 years old. She is still my best friend and companion, and argues with me every chance she gets! She has lost all of her hearing, and moves a lot slower than she used to, but other than that she is doing well.
* Anni vom Haus Jansen, aka ANNI, will turn 10 years old on July 8th. Anni is still in the middle of whatever she can be in the middle of! She too is moving a little slower in her senior years, but she is doing good.
* Ice vom Kirschental, aka ILLO, will turn 10 years old on July 24th. Illo is still my handsome boy and he loves to get attention and his brushings. He too is moving slower, but doing well.
* Fina Team vom Gleisenauer Schloss, aka FINA, moved in with my daughter and her family last year, and is loving her retirement life. She is happy to be a house dog and loves going in the truck with Lorena and especially their trips to Sonic for ice cream.
* Baster vom Gleisenauer Schloss, our beloved BUSTER passed away last summer at the age of 13 years old. I miss his smiling face and loving mannerisms. He was simply the BEST of everything. I miss him tremendously.

CAUTION … when boarding your dog!

Saddened to announce … No Puppies!

Leave a comment


I am saddened to announce that Fina did not have puppies as planned.  We took her to the vet this morning, she had a false pregnancy.  Though she is still in excellent health, this is a sign that it is time for her to retire from breeding.  Fina turns 8 years old this month, and has produced excellent progeny over the years, but now it is time for her to enjoy the rest of her life as a family dog.

I have began looking for a new female to import from Europe for our breeding program.  Watch for updates and news coming up in 2016.

Puppies Coming Soon!

Sorry it has been awhile since I posted on the blog.  My shoulder surgery ended up being more intense than originally planned, and I am still trying to get my movement and strength back in my arm.  However, life goes on … and Fina and Ice decided it was time for another litter.

With this announcement, Fina is due to have pups around 12/31/2015.  More information will be coming soon!

Orumhaus Update!

Over the past few months, I have been enduring pain in my right shoulder.  As it got worse, I decided to go to the orthopedic doctor for a diagnosis.  After x-rays and a MRI, he determined that I have a tear in my rotator cuff and a bone spur.  I will be having surgery to repair this, and due to the length of recovery and physical therapy, I have decided to not breed any other litters this year.

I would like to THANK all my puppy customers for the photos and updates you send me!  I really enjoy watching my grand pups grow!

Gracie went to live with her new family at 7 weeks old.  She has adjusted well and is doing great.  Thank you, Sarah and Marc S. for keeping me updated on Gracie.  Here are photos of her with both her ears up.
