| Elsa came to us through my good friend Lee Hough of von Wolfstraum, who owns Bianka, Elsa's mother.
Lee directed us to Jon Gjerpe, who was handling the sale of the puppies, and was able to get us this fantastic
little female pup from the breeder, Ben Evarretts of van Klipgaarden Kennel in Belgium.
When Elsa arrived, she came right out of the crate and was a very happy little girl. She took every
situation in stride and was not daunted by anything. She spent time visiting with all the kids at school, going
to basketball, archery, soccer, baseball and softball games. She took to the puppy rag and progressed right
on up to the hard bite sleeve with very little effort. She was quick in obedience and had fantastic food,
prey and ball drive. Her heeling was flashy and she carried herself proudly.
Elsa was worked by 10 different helpers. It didn't matter who was doing the job, she put out her best
effort. She earned her SchH1 title with a score of 81/82/87 Pronounced under SV Judge and Vice
President - Heiko Grube. Elsa was HOT (Handler Owner Trained).
Elsa had an extremely strong pedigree. She had great dogs behind her on the sire line including WUSV
competitors Zender vom Lusondai, Udo van't Quentawald, Belgium Champion Quinto van Haus Nuyens and 2x
World Champion Orry van haus Antverpa, along with Othello v Karthago, Tino v Korbelbach, Gent od Policie,
Iro z Pohranicni straze and Rick v Tiekerhook. She is an Ufo van Guys Hof granddaughter through her
mother. Her female line had most of the females with their SchH3. Top females in her pedigree included
Nina-Nicky v Tiekerhook, Steffi v Tiekerhook, Palma v Guy's Hof and Nicky v Guy's Hof among others.
A male pup, Archer von der Traumwolfen, from her first litter was placed with a world level competitor -
Mark Natinsky of Texas. Video of Archer passing his BH in January 2011. Archer is now IPO3, and
competed in two National Level events in 2012 at 3 years of age, placing 3rd at the AWDF. He has already
placed 1st at the South Central Regionals in 2013 with a score of 95/97/99 - 291. Archer was placed with
Dave Kroyer, and together they qualified and competed in the 2015 WUSV in Finland.
I was so blessed to be able to have such a wonderful companion and friend in my life. I miss you, my
sweet girl. We will meet again.

| We bought Viggo when he was almost 6 months old. In his very first show, he placed VP1 under SV Judge Helmut
König. I enrolled in puppy obedience classes where Viggo excelled and earned his CGC Certificate. We had great
hopes for him and planned to send him to several shows during the first year and then on to Germany for his training
and titles. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned. We re-adjusted our plans and decided to work on his
training In the summer of 2005, Viggo earned his AD and an SG rating. We then had to put off training due to
family medical problems. After about a year off from our training, with encouragement and help from several
people, I continued to work with Viggo. We earned his BH the fall of 2006, his TR1 the fall of 2007. I had been
training Viggo in all three phases of Schutzhund. He had very strong drive for tracking. We earned his AKC CD
title in 2010. He earned his titles as a HOT (Handler Owner Trained) dog.
Viggo did not have the qualities that I felt was required for a breed worthy male so I had him neutered at 2 1/2
years of age. I later found out that he had Pannus, which is a (some believe genetic) eye disease. He also showed
symptoms of EPI. Viggo passed away in my arms on June 7th, 2011. He was our family pet and protector. I miss

| Utta, (call name is Chita) was a very nice, socially, enviromentally stable, ZVV1, ZPO1, IPO3, KKL1
female that we welcomed to our kennel in 2010. She had a super temperament and is a very loving
female. She was the daughter of 2007 WUSV Vice-Master (2nd Place), and Czech National Champion
V-Ergo Hartis Bohemia, a SchH3, IPO3, VPG3, KKL1 male, from the Czech Republic. Her mother was
Chita Stribrne doly, ZVV1, IPO2, SchH1, FPR1, ZPO1, KKL2.
We were fortunate enough to be able to get Chita, directly from her breeder, with the help of my
good friend, Jana Horejsi. We continued her training and competed in some AKC events. We earned the
AKC CD, RN, and ThD, THDA and THDX titles. Chita was a Registered Therapy Dog through Therapy
Dogs, Inc., and later it was changed to Alliance of Therapy Dogs, which was based out of Cheyenne,
Chita was the mother to our C, E, F, G and I litters. Although most of her puppies went into Family
Companion Homes, she had several pups that were started in Schutzhund training, but the owners just
never got far enough in training to get titles. One pup was a certified Dual Police K9 with the Duel
County Sheriff's Department in Nebraska. One was also a Registered Therapy Dog for a while.
My sincere thanks to Ivana, for allowing Chita to become a member of our family, and to Jana, for
her help in finding this wonder female. Chita was an absolutely wonderful ambassador for the breed.
She loved to be any where that I was. She loved our family. She was my grandma/Nanny dog with other
litters of puppies. She had many canine friends, through our Therapy Dog group, as well as through my
group and private Obedience Lessons.
I am going to miss her so much. She was a heart and soul dog, one of those rare ones that are hard to
