Taz-ahni Von Grünheide
May 2013
I just wanted to let you know that our dear Ahni--who wants nothing more than to play with any human or dog she meets--thwarted an attempted burglary at our house today. Fortunately her bark (and probably the sight of her) was a sufficient deterrent and she wasn’t hurt or even phased by the event in any way. So, in addition to delighting us with her antics and endearing us to her, she is doing her job and doing it well.

Sisko Von Grünheide

Enya (aka Raven) Von Grünheide
She has earned her new name since she has camped alone with me on many occasions, and, most importantly, she has fallen in to great relationships with ALL of the other "pack" members including my cat!!! The picture of Raven and my cat walking is the two of them going on "a hunt" for mice together! Raven is becoming muscle from head to toe. Her favorite food on a hot summer day is watermelon. She lives for raw carrots and apples! I cannot thank you enough for her. She is perfect! Enjoy.I just had to share!

Hi Suzanne, Here is a picture of Diane and Alfa with their ribbon earnings before they had to take a break because of my surgery. Alfa is super dog, Diane is going to start working on her OTCH again. During the year they went to dog trials Alfa earned 11 titles in AKC and UKC, the majority of them were 1st place. We cannot thank you enough for getting Alfa for us.

Cara von Grünheide

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know Cara is doing fantastic! She is a great dog we couldnt be happier. She hikes up in the mountains with us a great deal ( I think she is part mountain goat) and has been working hard on her tracking and obedience. What I find really amazing is her agility ..wow. Anyhow hope, you and all your puppies are doing well. Have a great summer.

Isis von Grünheide

Today is Isis’s one year birthday, I took this photo of her this past weekend. She is doing great, still very keen, devoted, and loves our girls. Isis has grown to be about 90 lbs., healthy, and an excellent family dog/guard dog. Anytime someone comes around our girls or the house they are made aware of our little pup. She has come along way since we got her from you this past year. We are possibly taking a transfer to the North West Territories this summer, Isis is going to love the snow!

Thank you again for everything Suzanne!

G'Kuma von Grünheide


We got Kuma from your G litter and have been wanting to send you an update on how she is doing for a while now. She is a fantastic dog; we couldn't be happier with her! She is now 3 years old , has her Canine Good Citizen and recently passed the Delta Therapy dog test. I am planning on volunteering at Children's hospital since she is so absolutely great with children. We have also started agility, which we both enjoy. But most important of all, she is the best family dog we could ask for. My two boys (4 and 2) adore her. On top of it, she is stunningly beautiful and smart - she learned to open the latch on the gate with her snout at a very young age...(we quickly installed locks!) I'm sending you a separate email with an album of random pictures of her over these 3 years.

Anyway, I hope that this email finds you well!

Hi Suzanne,

Buddy and I entered our first ever event yesterday at the German Shepherd show in Renton—we got a qualifying score (84) in Rally Novice A!  Very exciting for us.  We are still taking agility classes, Buddy loves it—if only his owner were more athletic...we do have fun with it.  Josi is doing great, she is still a noisy sweetheart—doesn’t know she is 11 years old already!
Just wanted to share our news,
Judy Ward
