In Loving Memoriam, 2000-2010
" If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die, I want to go where they went". - Will Rogers-
Our dogs and puppies are raised as family in our home. They are never left in a kennel. We stay small by design since I can only accommodate so many dogs. In addition, we never get rid of our dogs when they are done breeding. They always retire with us. Greta will have one more litter before she will enjoy a very spoiled retirement.
This is Inka. The newest member of our dog family. She is one of my puppies from Greta and Zack. She is a beautiful girl from German Working lines. She is energetic, affectionate, and fun. Sadly her owner could not keep her because of health reasons.
Dog book of the month or so:
One of my favorite books is "Top Dog, Lucca K-459". Now it is with a heavy heart that her handler, Chris Willingham announced that Lucca passed away yesterday. Her 2nd handler, Juan, was able to fly in to spend some quality time with her in her last few days and they were both at her side as she took her last breath.
Lucca served in the Marine Corps for 6 years. Her service included 2 deployments to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan, where she lost one of her front legs. She led over 400 hundred patrols and saved countless lines, including both of her handlers. In retirement, she became an ambassador for the Military Working Dog (MWD) community and brought awareness regarding the service and sacrifice of our MWDs and their handlers.
Lucca truly was a special dog. We are forever grateful for her service. After her injury, Chris did his best to spoil her during her well deserved retirement. Lucca's incredible personality and spirit left a lasting impression on everyone she met.
