|Raina Von Barren Berg CGC (Left)
Just wanted to send a few pictures of Raina from this year.
She's doing very well and still full of energy! She and Chief are always playing and live to chase each other around the
yard. I also saw a recent breeding of Nicklaus and Georgia. I'm not ready just yet but was wondering if you might have any
plans to breed them together again.
So far so good! She was really good for
me on the drive down Saturday morning. And then no problem introducing her to Chief as well as some of the other neighborhood
dogs. She already has some favorite toys (basketball, soccer ball, and a kong toy), but my dads going to work with her on
sharing. But really, she's doing great for only being here two days!
We had her to the vet Saturday afternoon, everything is great! And we learned that she loves to play with the water
coming from the garden hose! It has been really fun having her so far. I'll keep you updated with how she's doing as well

Danica has become a real farm dog here so far. She hangs out with the
lab here and they are always sneaking into the cow or bull pastures which makes me nervous but she is on her game...as they
are always finding dead calf skins or deer legs out there.ewwww..she is covered with ticks as well as I am ..I have done everything
under the sun to keep them at bay.. they are just a season up here in the Dakotas and ppl just say give it another few weeks
and they go away..the horses here are coverd..It breaks my heart. Im only here for two more months.thank GOD!! then we are
both off to Sturgis to become bikers a I will be working on bikes there and she will be there under the tent or in her boarding
home ! I had to tow my bike this year because my girl doesnt have a side car ...yet ..I cant wait to see how she makes out
for three weeks there.. She is very smart as to where in the 5 acre barnyard she can go or stay..she knows when we go to check
cattle she is not to go beyond the gate unless I call her.. she is the smartest dog I have ever owned.. I tell her all the
time she is the best dog in the world.
We will be on to Wisconsin to meet up with a good vet friend of mine and then back to NY for my last semester of
school. She is the only dog they permit to go to class ..the entire campus loves her. she has become a Mascot there..of course
it helps that I am an older student and push the limits of what is accepted and the fact that she is so well behaved during
(I feel like I won the lottery with her) I have more pics in my phone
but have no cell service here to send them to my computer yet.
If I ever settle down one day....Im coming back to you for a male..older..and hopefully her direct
bloodline. Feel free to keep me posted ;) I will send along that big hug and kiss!
She (Danica) is
the love of my life. She loves my friends female.:) and she loves the woods. and she travels well! and has one hell of a nose
on her..sometimes too good. She will be going to Texas with me for an internship on a huge Equine Embryo transplant ranch

Thelma has been retired.
Thelma is being fostered by June Schott of Everett, Ma. Thelma will be in training
for Search & Rescue prospect & Therapy Dog.
Thelma is having fun playing with Chester (her Basset
Hound room mate) who she adores and gives lot's of kisses. She enjoys her visits to the Middlesex Fells chasing balls or just
exploring the woods with her pack friends. Of course Thelma loves being close to her human family as well. Starting this Saturday,
Thelma will begin Search & Rescue training. With Thelma's sweet disposition, high drive & intelligence, she will make
an excellent Search & Rescue team member with Chester and Ava (her Golden room mate).
Peace, Love, Drool,
June & Chester
all is well with you and the family. I just wanted to give you an update in the life of Ms. Thelma. Of course she continuous
to be spoiled and enjoying her life at the Schott's residence with her favorite partner in crime, Chester. She
loves playing chase the ball at the park with my son Ryan, as he throws the ball a country mile. Thelma happily gets
a good work out when my son is around, Chester not so much, no interest in the ball chasing thing. Chester
says it gets exhausting just watching Thelma chase balls.
Chester is a certified therapy dog and a member of the Dog Bones Therapy
Dog of Massachusetts organization. He had a meet and greet session at the Life Care Center in Stoneham. After
Chester's successful session with the staff and director of social activities, I mentioned that I had a German Shepherd
in the car named Thelma. Eventually in the near future I do plan to get her certified as a therapy dog. Well
that is all the social activity director needed to hear, she wanted me to bring in Thelma to meet her and the director of the
Life Care Center (who loves German Shepherds). Well, Ms. Thelma was well behaved and adored by all she
met, including some of the patients and their families in the lobby area. I had Thelma politely sit before I allowed
anyone to approach her. Then, I took her into the conference room and gave the command down, she immediately responded,
then couldn't resist rolling on her belly for some welcomed belly rubs by two directors. No surprise
that Thelma was an immediate hit with the two directors. When Thelma becomes a certified therapy dog,
I promised the two directors of Life Care Center (a rehab and long term care health center) that I would bring Thelma
with Chester for visits.
doesn't get along with other dogs, she will go on therapy dog visits where she and Chester are the only dogs. Although
Thelma is improving when it comes to other dogs she doesn't know, I cannot control the actions of other dogs off
leash or dog owners unable to control their dogs on leash, so I take Thelma to places where I know I won't run
into off leash dogs and even dogs on leash.
Thelma will resume her SAR training with Joe Ferraro starting next Saturday. When available,
I plan to sign up Thelma for classes with Dog Bones Therapy Dogs for certification.
Sometime next week I will schedule the
annual wellness appointment with the vet for Thelma, as she is due her rabies shot. After the visit,
I will send you a copy of the updated shots.
Thelma Update 5/20/12
Just wanted to let you know Thelma is doing well
and had an outstanding tracking training session with Joe yesterday. To our surprise, after testing her, we discovered Thelma
is advanced in tracking. She had no problem following the scent trail including off leash to find the human, be it me or someone
else at night or day. This past Friday night, Nora and I were practicing article scenting at night with Chester and Ava. We
decided to test Thelma. The distance tested was about the length of two football fields. After giving Thelma an article to
scent, she immediately was all business, putting her nose to the ground, moving at a steady pace (not pulling on the leash)
like a pro following the exact footprints of the trail to the human hidden behind the tree. Before the test, the handler (Nora)
had no idea of my direction (I was the tracklayer) or location of the glove or hidden human, nor did I when it was my turn
as the handler when Thelma had to track and find Nora's brother (a stranger to Thelma, we used one of his socks as a scent
At yesterday's tracking session, Joe was impressed and amazed at Thelma's advanced tracking skill. She is either
a natural tracker or had professional tracking training overseas as a puppy. Joe believes tracking is in her bloodline. He
decided to test Thelma off leash. No problem, after taking scent of the article, she was on the job, nose to the ground and
off she went in a flash, found me deep in the woods hidden behind a tree. We anointed her as the super star tracking dog.
However, Chester is takes issue at this title, he says he is just as good as Thelma, but uses a slower pace in his tracking
approach. Seriously, Joe wants a video of Thelma tracking off leash, as he likes the way she gracefully runs like wind and
while blending in with the colors of the woods, like a coyote or wolf.
It is quite humorous walking Thelma and Chester together
to the tracking location. So many people smile/laugh at Chester wearing his search and rescue vest while admiring Thelma's
beautiful markings, These two are like the beauty and the clown.
Almost forgot, Thelma's new friend is a seven month old 13 lb Manchester Terrier named
Zoe. I dog sit Zoe three days a week and pleased to report that Thelma helps me a lot by playing/entertaining Zoe at the house.
It is wonderful to watchThelma play with Zoe in such a gentle way. After Zoe plays with Thelma, she is one tired puppy. Chester
doesn't like Zoe and usually hides behind the couch when Zoe wants to play with him. He is quite happy to delegate this job
assignment to Thelma. Gigi the cat doesn't like Zoe either and won't come down stairs until Zoe leaves the premises, but Gigi
sure likes Thelma ( I think more than Chester). Chester says that is fine with me, Thelma can be responsible for Gigi too.
Chester is quite happy to rest on his Chester couch after his many city walks or visits to the Middlesex Fells.
Peace, Love and Drool,
