601. Lucy & Maxx
Submitted by: Valerie
Picture #1 -- Entitled “Whoa” because I can just imagine that is what Lucy is thinking as Maxx is greeting her for the very first time. It was taken by my daughter, Ashley (then age 14) on the very first day we brought Lucy home. Lucy was 10 weeks old and Maxx 7 months old.
Picture #2 - Entitled “Together Forever” – Maxx and Lucy love the beach! This picture was taken by my husband, Howie on a beautiful summer day at Bodega Bay, CA.
Maxx and Lucy are 5 years old and have been inseparable ever since that first day they met. They are the most amazing dogs we have ever had. Maxx is a loyal friend and gentle, wise “old soul” and Lucy is a bright light of joy! She has personality plus, loves all things pink and is the social butterfly of the family. Maxx competes in dock diving and they both compete in Rally Obedience.
Maxx –5 ½ year old yellow Lab, male – CGC, Splash Dog Champion, Rally Obedience Title (RN)
Lucy – 5 year old yellow Lab, female – CGC, Rally Obedience (title in progress)

603. Hunter & Rico
Submitted by: James
My two mals-litter mates Hunter & Rico 6 years old. First photo-Take Two of Rico & Hunter. Second phote Hunter sun bathing.
604. Lady
Submitted by: Stacey
Lady is a two year old GSD that loves attention. She is protective, playful and patient especially with our 5 year old twins. When she does not feel that we are giving her enough attention she will take an object like her bone, flip it up in the air and then pounce on it as if to say, "See how much fun I'm having? Wanna play?" She is a quick learner, an escape artist and a loved member of our family.
605. Taedyn
Submitted by: Kathleen
Photo 1: Taken in the Adirondacks in upstate NY. This is an infrared photo of Taedyn looking over a lake with a back pack on. I have other photos from here, both color and infrared. The fall colors are beautiful, so feel free to let me know if you need an autumn photo.
Photo 2: Playing fetch with Taedyn. Here you can see her captured mid-stride running towards the stick.
I adopted Taedyn from an SPCA when she was 6 years old. She is a hard working dog with seemingly an unlimited amount of energy, but she is also a huge snuggle bug and gentle and shares her love.
606. Beau the Yellow Lab
Submitted by: Harry
Featured is our 5 1/2 year old Yellow Lab named Beau taken on vacation in the mountains of North Carolina where we escape the Florida summers. He is a rescue from the local SPCA and was about 1 year when we took him in. We were the third home for him due to behavior issues, but really all he needed was some patient guidance and loads of exercise. He loves to swim, hunt for hidden objects, explore the woods, and as you might expect he enjoys a brisk jog along side a bicycle more than a gentle walk. In his spare time on Friday's he enjoys being a registered therapy dog at a local nursing home where he delights the residents and receives lots of hugs and attention. Most of all he is a treasured member of our family who adds a precious dimension to our household. We owe much of his good obedience to the training tips we received from your wonderful website and DVDs that we have purchased.
607. Bruno the American Pit Bull Terrier
Submitted by: Klaudia
This is our dog Bruno. He is a 20 month old American Pit Bull Terrier.
My husband Eric and I got him when he was 9 weeks old. Bruno loves to hang out and run around with his BFF Sinatra, who is about the same age and a Pit Bull as well. He doesn't like water though... We usually call him Kiss Bull, because he showers us with kisses all the time. He is super active, loves to go hiking, and play fetch. He loves to play find the treat, I hide it in the house and he will go find it.
The first picture is from the very 1st day we got him, March 2nd 2010. The second one was taken a couple of days ago.
608. Lucy Freckles the Jasck Russel/Rat Terrier Mix
Submitted by: Alfonso
I would like to submit these two photos that my wife took our dog Lucy Freckles. She is a Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix. Lucy is about 5 years old and we saved her from the pet shop when she was 4 months. I say saved because she was in the tiny pet shop kennel for 2 months because no one purchased her. We would go by a see her when we would go and buy food for our other dog. They keep dropping the price on her so she would sell but no one was buying her. After we closed on our house I decided to buy her if she was still there, my fear was that the next step the pet shop was going to take was to put her down. When we got her her muscles were so undeveloped that she could barely hop up and over a small log in the trail we were walking her on.
609. Herkules
Submitted by: Raquel & Howie
Herkules is a purebred rottweiler who became part of our family when he was 6 months old. He is very bright, has high drive and always wants to work. He is lovable and playful and enjoys the snow, his pool and all types of training. He loves children and is a wonderful addition to our family. This 1st photo is of "Herkules first snow." He is about 8 months old in this picture.
610. Grace the Doberman
Submitted by: Jenny
Photo 1: The first photo is of Grace, our 2.5 year old Doberman. We adopted Grace as a rescue at 8 weeks. Currenty, she is competing in both agility and, she does lots of great tricks. We have taken classes with Michael Ellis and currently are training with Andrew Ramsey for Nosework.
Grace is a character! She loves to engage with both people and dogs... and she had adopted our previously feral cat, Lily, as her private cat. They love to kiss and nuzzle each other.
Photo 2: This photo is of Grace and I training. Grace loves heeling!
611. Hanna the German Shepherd & Trooper the Lab Mix
Submitted by: Gary
Photo 1: Hanna & Toy: Hanna is our German Shepherd. She is currently 1 yr and 10 months old. The picture was taken when she was 8 weeks old. She is snuggled up with her new toy on the night that we were bringing her home. We traveled over 320 miles from Spokane, WA to Rochester, WA to adopt her from a reputable breeder. We spent the night in a hotel, where you see Hanna fast asleep and very content.
Photo 2: Hanna & Trooper: This picture was taken on the night we arrived home. We introduced Hanna to each of our pets, and Hanna is pictured here with Trooper. Trooper is a 7 year old female lab mix, which we rescued from the pound. She had a terrible cut to the bone and the vet said she may lose her foot. My wife Jeannie and daughter Breanna changed her dressings every day and her leg healed up very nicely.
612. Parker & Monty
Submitted by: Christy
Photo 1: Parker was pulled from the shelter when she was 13 weeks old, and diagnosed with distemper. A tremendous will to live not only turned her into a great agility dog, but she is also an avid and accurate K9 Nose Work dog. Here, she's performing a vehicle search.
Photo 2: Monty was pulled from a shelter when he was 5 months old. He's a natural Doberman, ears, tail and dew claws! And a bundle of energy.
613. Beck the Smooth Fox Terrier
Submitted by: Vicki
This is Beck, he is an 8 month old smooth fox terrier. I sent another pic with him and three of my collies earlier. Anyway he is my second fox terrier my first was a wire that I lost almost two years ago at 13. He's an abosolute hoot, loves water. I introduced him to water in the bathtub and had him playing with toys in the water at 8 weeks. He took to the pool immediately and was out of the life vest in 4 swims. We have an inexpensive Bestway metal frame kiddie pool that is 30 inches deep and 12 feet across. Perfect for Beck and the collie to have a nice swim. Hoping to have him running in agility trials in the future. He's very quick to learn and has no fear. He's a great little dog

Submitted by: Janel

615. Apollo
Submitted by: Paulinus
Apollo came from Show / pet quality stock from Kimbertal Kennels in PA. He went through basic protection and had off leash obed. but he was basically a pet. He did stop a robbery of my house just by his presence when I lived in NY. He was about 4-5 months at the time but was already about 50-60lbs and about 22" (approx. the size of a normal sized Dobie - he eventually hit 30" and about 105lbs). I came home to see one window pane removed from my back door and APollo peering out. Obviously I was lucky that he was so big and that was enough to scare the robbers off because he had absolutely no training at the time.
616. Hana & Hagrid the German Shepherds
Submitted by: Amy
Photo 1: Hana is an adorable black and tan German Shepherd. When she was first brought home, she was only 5 months old. I didn't have good impression of her as I didn't find her adorable nor as beautiful as a Siberian Husky. However, what impressed me is that she has homing instinct. We never had a chance to toilet-train her and she knew it already. She has never or by chance did her business in the house for the past 5 years living with us. Another worth mentioning thing is that she actually saved my next door neighbour from getting trapped in the fire. Before the fire could spread to the rooms at the wee hour of the night, her frantic barks woke up all the nearby neighbours and that family was rescued. Kudos to Hana.
Photo 2: My 2nd dog is a bi-color male German Shepherd. His name is Hagrid Amarcord and he is 4 year old. He is trained for Schutzhund and particularly good in biting work. He enjoys working and knows when he needs to work and when not. He always stand at the door wagging his tail to receive us when we come home after a long day at work, seeing his happy face, we are re-charged and forget about our tiredness. He is really a loving companion as well as a deterrent. I just couldn't stop loving him.
617. Rookie

620. Moon~Beam the English Bull Terrier
Submitted by: Christine
"Moon~Beam" is an English Bull Terrier 6 yrs young, we met when someone told me a neighbor was going to take a deaf dog to the pound (most likely to be euth'd)  apparently the breeder no longer wanted her either.  (She was about 4mos old at the time) She is a funny, goofy little girl!

He is a therapy dog and he and I do the orientations of new dog/handler teams at the hospital. He has done reading programs for 1st graders at a local elementary school, participated in local community programs on dog safety for kids and is an all around great dog. 

625. Tacoma the GSD & Kona the Bernese
Submitted by: Audra
I adopted my female GSD, Tacoma, from The Seeing Eye when she was retired from their breeding program and I happened to be moving onto other things after working there during undergrad and after college. She whelped five litters in total and has offspring that are now breeders and working guide dogs. Now, she's just retired and spoiled-- happiest when with me and with a tennis ball nearby, and practicing obedience or tricks or anything else that involves food and a ball. This photo was taken when she was about 6yo, and was impatiently waiting for me to throw the ball-- I asked for her to "wave" before she could have it, and the tongue sticking out was a side effect of her anticipation, and a comical bonus!  She just turned 8yo last month, though she still looks and acts about 4yo....
The other photo is of Tacoma at about 5yo, days after I brought her home, with the great love of my life-- Kona, my Bernese.  Tacoma is, of course, wondering where I hid the ball, and he is wondering what she is doing. You know how some people have a once-in-a-lifetime dog? Kona was mine, and I was lucky enough to know it for his entire life, rather than in retrospect, after one has many dogs afterward. Unerringly steady, thoughtful, always checked with me when in doubt, never started conflicts and was perfect as a distraction dog for clients with shy or volatile dogs, utterly trustworthy with small animals and babies, loved all people, learned quickly and truly understood cause and effect of his behaviors. He was the type that everyone loved when they met him, including people who were afraid of dogs (impressive, given that he was over 100lbs and looked like a bear) and people who don't like animals (including my mother). He turned 9yo a month after this photo was taken and never once looked or acted his age. He was diagnosed suddenly with lymphosarcoma less than 3 months later and the cancer and the chemo aged him quickly. Letting him go is still the hardest thing I have ever done; looking at his photos-- something I almost never do since losing him-- is still far more bitter than sweet, but I am glad I have them. Thank you for giving the me the opportunity to remember him again.

633. Cuervo the Pitbull & Australian Cattle Dog Mix Puppies
Submitted by: Ericka
The first is of a litter of puppies that I rescued from a homeless man. They are about 6 weeks old in this picture. They learned quickly when it was time for bed and where to sleep. Crate training was very easy and kept my carpets clean. They never had a mess in the crate and learned to go outside fast. They were a great litter of pups and all have great home. They are Australian Cattle dog mixes. Their names front to back: Dingo, Kali, Squish, Ollie, and Penny. They are 6 years old today.
The second picture if of my Pitbull named Cuervo. There are so many benefits of have a trained dog but of the best is that I can take my dogs everywhere. He is pictured at the beach were we walk and play with him off leash and under great control. As you can see he is a happy boy and loves our California weather! He is 9 years old in this picture and is now 11 1/2.

636. Dyna the GSD
Submitted by: Magda
Attached are two photos of my dog Dyna. Dyna is a working line GSD, who has one floppy ear. She is now 3.5 years-old. We adopted her at the age of 18 months and had quite a few problems with her to start with (still dealing with some of them…) – she was totally untrained, didn’t know any structure, and was fearful and aggressive towards other dogs and some people. At the same time she had a really high prey drive, which made her want to run after everything that moved…we’ve had a local trainer come to our house on a few occasions, I’ve joined the obedience club…etc, but it was only your advice (I got all the “general dog training” DVDs that you’ve produced including the foundations of Michael Ellis system) that finally helped us to create the right environment for her. Currently she is either crated at home, outside in her run or leashed on a city walk. There are two places where I let her run free (always with an e-colar and also a muzzle if I can’t pay 100% attention to her): a farmlet when I keep my horse and a local equestrian centre. She absolutely loves the farm environment and this is where I can see the “real her” – she is engaged, playful, full of energy, but at the same time fully controlled – we got to the point that she wouldn’t run even after a rabbit if I say “no” (she whines and complains about it, but sticks with me anyway). There is a little stream at the farmlet, which is Dyna’s favourite playground. She would retrieve anything that I throw into the water, and if I don’t have time to play with her she’d simply jump in and out by herself. The first photo attached shows Dyna playing in the stream with an enormous stick. The composition is not perfect, but I love the “action” feel of it…I hope you’d like it too. The second photo shows Dyna jumping over the horse jumps at the Equestrian centre – I typically play with her in an empty paddock while my daughter is having a horse riding lesson.
637. Charger the Dutch Shepherd
Submitted by: Heidi
Charger is a 9 month old blue Dutch Shepherd (the pictures were taken when he was 8 weeks old).  He is a typical Dutchie with lots of energy and drive so he keeps our family on our toes.  He is a loyal friend and protector of our 8 year old twins, and a source of constant laughter.  He's named after our beloved football team, the San Diego Chargers.

639. Bera the GSD & Flip the Catahoula Leopard Dog
Submitted by: Lorrie
Photo 1: Bera the 9 week old GSD
After having had many breeds over the years, Bera is my first working line GSD and I’m happy to have found her. This picture was taken just after I brought her home. She was showing her natural agility, boldness and energy as she easily jumped over a fallen log to follow me. Now she likes to chew on the trees when she misses a squirrel.
Photo 2: Flip the 11 month old Catahoula Leopard Dog
I bred and raised Catahoulas for many years, and Flip was my senior stud dog. We did many activities, trials and shows together. He was a champion in many ways, but most importantly, an exceptionally good family and buddy dog. A very versatile breed, but one that is not for everyone, Catahoulas are clever-smart breed, that are extremely loyal, athletic and are game for any activity.

Submitted by: Karen
Here are two  photos of our Labrador Retriever Nugget taken in November 2011 at Cape Spear, Newfoundland, the most easterly point in North America and about 10 miles from our home in St. John's. Nugget was born on July 7, 2011 and came from Bernfield Kennels in Porter's Lake, Nova Scotia. We've done Puppy Classes and Beginner's Obedience classes and this fall we'll be attending more Obedience classes. I would love to enter her in CKC Obedience trials, and maybe even look at being a Hospital Visiting Dog someday. She has a lovely, gentle personality. She is the first female dog we've ever owned, after over 40 years of male dogs!
644. Babe
Submitted by: Stacey
Babe was simply the best.  She was obedient, highly protective, loving and a loyal companion.  She would chase anything you threw into the water and retrieve it for you...including people!  Her favorites were rocks and pieces of wood.  She would swim in a circle yelping for you to throw a rock or a piece of wood.  When you did, she would swim to the spot and try to retrieve it.  We lost Babe to spleen cancer shortly after this picture was taken.
645. Blizzard the Sheltie
Submitted by: Kelly
Attached are two pictures of my little Sheltie “Blizzard.”  She’s a 2 ½ yr old undersized Sheltie, standing just under 12” at the withers and weighing a whole 9lbs ….but what she lacks in size she makes up for in attitude and love of life!!!!
Photo 1: Shows jumping during a backyard agility session.  She is absolutely CRAZY about agility – a little speed demon.  People laugh at us all the time at agility trials as they see her fast asleep, upside down in my arms right outside of the ring…then they see this crazy fast dog running the second we walk into the ring – they can’t believe it’s the same dog!!
Photo 2: Shows the “quiet side” of her relaxing among some flowers.

661. Schelbie, Shep, & Buddy Blue
Submitted by: Tobias
Photo 1: White German Shepherd: Schelbie, aged 12. This photo was taken the morning she was put to sleep in 2003. She was deaf, almost completely blind, missing teeth, and had severe hip dysplasia. She was a great dog and shared a special bond with my mother, who she shared a birthday with. She was buried later on that day next to her own mother, Sheba, in our back yard. This is by far my favourite photo of her.
Photo 2: Siberian Husky and Malamute Mix puppy: Shep (age 2) and Buddy Blue (age 9 weeks) playing with a sock rope toy; photo taken somewhere around 2000. Another one of those shots that we completely weren't expecting. Buddy was not injured (we definitely checked him over). He refused to let go and kept going back even after Shep dropped the toy.  Shep later figured out how to jump the fence and ended up teaching Buddy how as well... Shep would place his front paws on the fence, and then, since he wasn't big enough to jump it himself, Buddy would run up his back... They definitely taught us how to build a proper dog fence, that's for sure.

669. Gunner the GSD & Connall the Irish Wolfhound
Submitted by: Emily
Photo 1: My 6 year old GSD, Gunner.  We were hiking when I snapped that particular photo.  He is the love of my life and our relationship has benefited greatly from the training methods in Leerburg videos.  Gunner is our home town hero as he saved me from a nasty encounter with an unknown man last Christmas.  He's been in my life from the young age of 12 weeks and has traveled all over the country with me.
Photo 2: In the last photo is my Irish Wolfhound, Connall.  He was 16weeks in that photo and was raised from tips in your "8 weeks to 8 mos" video.  (he'll be 2 in December)  He has got to be the sweetest, dopiest dog that has ever lived and I can't imagine life without him!  He and Gunner love to go swimming in our farm pond while I work with my horses.
670. Penny the Pembroke Welsh Corgi
Submitted by: Maria
This is Haywires Miss Moneypenny, 'Penny'.  She is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and just turned a year old. I started her training using your 8 weeks to 8 months and then enrolled her in puppy classes here in town. She just finished the basic obedience and received her AKC Star Puppy award. We are now working towards her Canine Good Citizen award. Best dog I've ever owned but so glad I got your video to start her. She is *very* stubborn at times. Love your work and what you stand for!

672. Hank the Doberman Pinscher & Bronson the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
Submitted by: Bri
Photo 1: Hank, our Doberman Pinscher, who we lost to cancer last January at 3 years old. He excelled at obedience and had a very strong drive. He was very sweet and gentle with his family, yet very protective of our property.
Everyone who met Hank instantly fell in love with him. Losing Hank was very hard on everyone.
Photo 2: Bronson, is our 7 month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix. He working on perfecting his basic obedience, and loves playing tug and ball. He is very eager to please and a crazy little pup. Bronson been fed a natural raw diet since he was 10 weeks old.
673. Queich (Quick) Vom Haus Reid
Submitted by: Les

674. Tink
Submitted by: Tamra
My boy's name is Tink, which is short for Ole Crooked Ear Tink One picture is the few seconds that are between the marker 'yes' and the treat being given. The other is Tink and his dumbbell. He is six months old now, in the pictures he is four (almost five) months.  
What can I say about Tink? I am at that age where the children are grown and the grandchild is too young to play.  Enter my boy, Tink.  My husband, Glenn, has never owned a dog in his life, but you wouldn't know that.  He comes with me to the obedience classes so he knows what to do, and we both watch the Leerburg videos and DVDs.  Everything your videos say about German Shepherds seems to be true about Tink.
Tink loves a challenge, he is a very quick learn. Everything is new to Tink, we really enjoy teaching and showing him new things.  You can almost see a lightbulb over his head when he finally 'gets it' during a lesson.  He will never be a champion show dog or a super stud, he will be our well behaved, super smart boy.  I can't say family pet, he is just too smart to be called that!

679. Britta & Bear
Submitted by: Pat
The first it my girl,  URO1 UCD Britta Vom Sturm Und Drang, CGC,STAR,RN,TDI,RA,RL1-AOE,CD,HIC.  She is 3 years old (2 in the photo), a beautiful sweet girl who loved everyone. One of the funniest that has happened with her was one day when I walked into my training club with her. A lot of people there are concerned about the GSDs. We were walking around a corner as another dog & owner were coming around the other way. This person saw Brit before they saw me. I heard her gasp & yell, "SHEPHERD!", grabbing her little dog. When she realized it was my dog, she immediately relaxed and said, "Oh, it's just Britta." It's great to know that "it's just Britta" and not a threat.
The second photo is of one of puppies from Britta's first litter. I called him Bear because he was the only coat and is 4 weeks old in this photo. He is Fulton vom Sturm und Drang. More than any of the other puppies Bear was into everything when given a chance and was the little charmer when people came to visit. He is growing into a very handsome boy, working toward competition obedience and possibly Schutzhund.
680. Alice the White Shepherd & Nikki the Chocolate Lab

Submitted by: Michael
Photo 1: First is Alice, a 5 year old white shepherd. She has a rather un-German Shepherd like personality, its more like a prissy cat. She loves sitting in your lap and snuggling, so its a good thing she is quite petite at 45 pounds.
Photo 2: Next is Nikki the chocolate lab, who is 16 in the picture, just after a bath. She died a few months later in 2010 due to liver cancer. Doctors gave her 6 months to live almost 2 years prior. Even at 16 years old she still had those 'puppy dog eyes' and wielded them expertly. Note: This photo was shot on film and scanned, so the resolution isn't that great.

681. Farrah the Shiloh Shepherd
Submitted by: Stephen
Attached please find two photos of Farrah, my 2 year old ISSR Shiloh Shepherd. Farrah is a plush golden sable female from Epic Shilohs in Innisfil, Ontario. Farrah came to us at 12 weeks and is truly an integral part of our family. Shilohs are bred for their mild temperaments and size (Farrah is 28" at the withers) and have strong family loyalty. Farrah passed her Canine Good Neighbour exam at 12 months of age, and in January 2011 became a certified therapy dog with the St John Ambulance, where her and I visit older adults at 2 facilities each week. She is also the spokes-dog (poster-pooch?) for the local Paws with a Cause program. She won 3 best-in-show reserve ribbons at her very first confirmation dog show last year and now we are participating in the sport of tracking and loving it! In addition to her dog world credentials, she is best friends with our cat Sebastien and is an avid outsdoors-dog, as she accompanies me on all of my field work excursions to the remote parts of Northwestern Ontario.
As you can probably tell, I am very proud of her, and the bond that we have together. I must admit it was very difficult to narrow down the 1000s of photos I have of Farrah. I chose the two photos I submitted because 1) one illustrates the majestic nature of the breed, her focus and her beauty. 2) the other shows her playfulness, agility and sheer joy of life that she has.

Photo 2: LuLu is such a sweet, yet very smart German Shepherd puppy. She loves to play, learn new commands and follow "her people" around. 
684. Woofles
Submitted by: Amanda
Woofles is our little genetic grab bag of a dog; we've had him since he was 8 weeks old (and he hasn't had kibble since!). He turned 9 this year. We just call him a "purebred mutt"; he's trained with voice, hand signals, and will follow my eyes and head for direction as well. When he was younger, he used to run agility courses for fun. His current job is guarding our quaker parrot from our youngest cat; Woofles takes that job very seriously and, when not outside, can be found laying in front of the bird's cage, keeping an eye out for the cat.

687. Rex the German Shepherd
Submitted by: Andrew
German Shepherds are very smart, but here’s my Rex thinking he’s qualified to be a doctor. (Actually, he was posing patiently for a photo shoot so I could make a card for my wife).
Rex is 8 months old, rescued from a shelter, super smart, very affectionate, and loves hiking in the mountains. His is nickname is “Kommissar Rex” (Inspector Rex), named after the talented canine star of an Austrian TV show of the same name, because he is very curious about everything, and is always inspecting what’s going on. If he was human, he’d be either a detective or a scientist.
688. Chemukh & Lakota the GSDs

Lakota is a Black /Red GSD he is 5 yrs old

690. Bear the GSD
Submitted by: Rick
This is a photo of “Bear” (Baron).  Bear is a 4 year old male red and black long-coated GSD.  We call him “Bear” because that’s what he reminds us of – He’s a very solid guy and with his long coat he looks even more “Bear-like.”  I included another, more “traditional” pose. 
691. Malia the GSD
Submitted by: Mark
Malia, 4 yr old GSD
692. Tara, Reagan, Madison, Jefferson, Virgil

Submitted by:
Photo 1: From left to right -- Tara, 11 yrs, Reagan, 7 yrs, Madison, 4 yrs, Jefferson, 3 yrs and Virgil, 4 yrs (who is the sable gsd in the back).
This is going to be a bit difficult since there are five of them in the picture. All five dogs are mine, the ones in the front are Australian Shepherds - awesome dogs (I've had them since they were all puppies). Virgil, the GSD has been with me for 4 months, he was a rehomed dog and he's fit in very well with a bit of training! He knew nothing about obedience or other dogs before he came to me -- and his idea of a cat seemed to be similar to his idea of a squirrel! In 4 months he's come a long way and I'm very proud of our progress together.
Photo 2: (left to right) Virgil, Madison, Reagan ... pretty tired after a 5 mile walk and a long game of fetch (it takes quite a bit to wear them out, and I think they were only taking a breather in this picture!).

693. Bogie & Christmas

Submitted by: Angelique
Ziggy is 16 months old.  She's my first Shepherd and my first dog.  We spent our winter in Tahoe this year and I can safely say she's a mountain dog...  At the moment we're both learning to play tug and ball on a string after recently going to Michael Ellis' awesome motivation class.
695. Onyx the Doberman Pinscher
Submitted by: Justyna
Onyx is a pure bred Doberman Pinscher, he is a model citizen and our loyal family member! There are a lot of misconceptions about Dobermans but we have found that with the proper training they are loyal friends, model citizens and can be great with kids (we have a 2 year old daughter and he is so gentle and patient with her). The two pictures that I included are of Onyx when he was a puppy, doing some long leash training (sit and stay) as well as one as a full grown adult in action. We are advocates for responsible dog ownership and strongly believe that all dogs should go through some obedience training for their own safety, the safety of the public as well as the sanity of their owners :-).

Both photos are of my personal protection and Schutzhund competition dog. Registered name is Mikiruq vom Lytle call name is Fae. Photo #1 is of Fae at 9 weeks of age on a trip to Portage Glacier in Alaska. Photo #2 is of Fae at 1 year 2 months old doing a practice run of sheep herding in Palmer Alaska.
Fae is a great dog with natural talents in sheep herding and Schutzhund. She was purchased from Shaun and Brigitte Lytle, working dog GSD breeders in Palmer Alaska, whom we train with each week. She is my personal protection dog and loves guarding the car and myself, especially now that I am pregnant with TWINS!  She will be 2 years old soon and we hope to fully title her in Schutzhund over the next 2 years as well as getting her AKC herding titles. She is a wonderful and sassy dog with lots of personality. We love her!

705. Wolf
Submitted by: Blanca
Wanted to send you pictures from this side of the world of our Wolf. Like everybody else, I take more pics of wolf than anyone or anything else in this world :-)  My favorite pic of him looking at me lovingly with such expression on his face is on my cell phone.
Wolf is my first real dog that I've been taking care of since 6 weeks and I have a whole new appreciation for his kind. Wolf is very smart...sometimes I hope he becomes a kid in his next life.  He loves to be with my son, loves to ride in the back of the truck with his nose up in the air (you should see the mennonites staring at him when we pass by), loves to swim in the spring fed lagoon and loves to wake up early in the morning to listen and watch the birds.
