Hey Rita! Today is Kepler’s 9th birthday! I thought I’d send you guys a photo to show you how beautiful she still is. I know I’m bias, but she really is the greatest dog in the world. ❤️

THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MOLLY – BORN NOVEMBER 21, 2016 TO STAR & NITRO
She was born on a very special day – (Nov 21st, our dad’s birthday) – Truly a Gift Sent from Heaven. We feel blessed beyond words and a big THANK YOU goes out to Rita & Jim for their loving care and breeding such calm and gentle loving pups and giving these pups such a beautiful start in life.
Molly lives in Brantford, ON and four years have gone by & each day brings much happiness & joy. (She is a perfect fit in our family). She has a way of sneaking up for a snuggle & bringing a smile to your face. Ever since she came home, she loves to drop at your feet like a feline to greet you. She has grown into a beautiful 80lb well-mannered girl. She is not a barker, but will let you know when a stranger is around. She is so aware of her surroundings and knows right from wrong and yes from no. Countless times while out for a walk I have had people pull over to tell me how beautiful and obedient she is. She makes me proud, and has had much training, both in school and private. She is truly my shadow and never leaves my side or anyone else in the family. She is so very loyal to her people. She loves food and treats and if you let her, she could become a “food thief”.
Just say the word hose and look out! Miss Molly’s favourite playtime is being sprayed with the garden hose in the summer & digging out all the water in her swimming pool, waiting for a refill. (We call her our little bear cub). She also loves chasing squirrels & birds, playing ball, car rides & walks & just hanging out on her cot outside. I still remember the day I picked her up from doggie daycare and the owner was soaked. She said, does the word “hose” mean anything. Yup!!!
In summary, THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MOLLY– she just wants to love and be loved in return. Having her greet you at the side door with those big puppy dog eyes makes any bad day a good day!
Thank you, again, Jim & Rita for giving us Molly.
Thank you again so much to you and Jim for suggesting and giving us the puppy he has been such a best friend to Lobo and is well loved by everyone in our family including kitty !
Ranger (who is called Rangie) has been a complete joy to our entire household the boys adore him and he is truly pure happiness – Lobo is still very much my boy but he loves ranger and The two of them jump up into a netted trampoline we have in our backyard and they wrestle and play it is so funny so especially during this time when we’re all locked in and no dog walks he has been a great blessing to everyone.
He had his surgery to fix his hernia when he had his neutering and everything was fine – we did it a bit early because of all the lockdowns in Toronto – and wanted to make sure we were all home here with him while he recovered. Rob and I have been exclusively working from home so it’s great we are all together every day.
Last thing I have to tell you is the shepherds are so so polite – if I sleep in some morning and Rob shuts my door they will sit quietly outside it but never bark never paw – they are never difficult – they are truly truly awesome-The boys always say how polite they are it’s really cute.
We think of you often as we look at our beauty Riley. She will be 2 on December 11th and I wish we could have 5 of her. She is beautiful, she is so smart, so loyal, so fun, so rewarding, the best of companions and great with our grandchildren.
We enrolled her in a wonderful dog training program for socializing and different skills and she is doing beautifully. I took this pic on a walk after class when walking with a friend … just a cute little bush that accents our precious girl.
We are so glad to have found you.
Chianti Redington son of nitro and star was born 11-21-16 . Chianti originally lived in Brantford Ontario and now resides in Pflugerville Texas as an only child with his bachelor father. He lives in a four bedroom home in the country and is known as the Prince of Tarpan trail. Chianti is a wonderful friend. I relocated to this area 2 years ago and I didn’t know anyone but I’m now very well known because I have the most handsome gsd and I am proud to say that I trained Chianti myself both on hand signs and verbal. In Texas friends like Chianti are welcome in most stores and his favorite shopping trip is to home depot. Rita and Jim I want to thank you as Chianti is my entire life. I worry because I’m 73 and he will only be 4 this November. However, I have set aside money for his future care. By the way he has supper at his feeding station but always has breakfast in bed. Best regards to both of you. Nitro and Star should be very proud of their son.
Everything is perfect with Titan. He is the best companion and behaves very well. Smart, sweet boy.
Love him beyond words. Easy to train and we are more than pleased with him. Titan looks very much like Summer and Nitro.
My family got a pup from you 5 years ago. We named him Ryker.
It has been some time and I don’t know if Jodi has contacted you but I thought that I would say hello and let you know Ryker just had his 5th birthday yesterday. He is a healthy, happy and good dog. Last we checked in November, he was 87lbs. Never an issue at all with his health. He has a sister who keeps him active. Her name is Destiny and she is a mixed breed….4 types in her.
Well I hope that both of you are doing well and all the dogs too.
We hope this message finds you and you family well and you are looking forward to the Holidays?
Happy 1st Birthday to your Dec 11th beauties and our beautiful Riley. She is a wonderful active, sweet, loving, loyal, crazy, smart and caring girl. Thank you so much❤️
She has slept beside our bed from day one which is priceless.
Please excuse the red wheelbarrow in the background of today’s pic, it just covers a big hole, one of many as she continues to excavate the backyard!!! She loves the entire backseat of her new car as well! So proud. Notice her distinct brown mark on her nose, great trademark.
We just wanted to update you on Shiloh’s progress.
At 7 months she is maturing, super active and also feeling more independent. She gets a lot of compliments when she is out and about town. Many people stop us just to meet her.
Since we had shared our concerns with you about her slow weight gain a few months ago, we are pleased to report that she is filling in nicely and she now weighs about 52 lbs. (we switched her to a dog food with grains to give her more carbs)
Shiloh has successfully completed three classes at Paws n’ Train: puppy socialization, and puppy manners 1 & 2. She is a fast learner and really enjoys the classes.
She runs like the wind and loves fetching tennis balls and will play endlessly. She also likes to sneak logs from our wood pile and carries them all over our property for some strange reason! We are hoping she will save us some work and consider carrying our firewood into the house this winter. ?
Shiloh loves going for car rides She also loves visits with our 2 grandchildren (3 years old and baby 6 months) She is pretty perceptive about the baby and is quite gentle. But she enjoys a good romp with our 3 year old and likes to play with him.
Thank you again for breeding such calm, beautiful, sociable straight back German Shepherd dogs.
Can’t believe Andi is one year old tomorrow. She fits into our life so perfect it feels like she’s always been with us. She’s a great dog that gets along with everyone so well. 100’s of kids at the school, dogs at the park, the mailman and our old cat Corbin and she’s so nice to them all. A real lover. She’s perfect. Thanx so much.
Again Congratulations on the birth of Destiny & Molson’s Babies. We LOVE our Trooper so Much and we have recommended Summerview many times. We receive so many compliments about our Gorgeous Baby! Best Wishes
