Uma was a "rock star". Over the four days  Uma had exposure with positive finds for tissue, bone, cremated, aged soil and lots of fluid.  My favorite scenario was a fire tower with three floors. It was dark and they were pumping smoke in. All floors had "bodies" in different locations, positions, etc. Our job was to clear the tower and locate the two hidden sources. Uma went right in with solid nerve and never spooked once!! Some dogs wouldn't go on the metal stairs or were getting spooked by the manikin bodies laying around. They had one source in a baby manikin in a crib. Uma jumped into the crib and downed on the wire springs to indicate- crazy!  Needless to say we earned our Intl. Police Work Dog Assoc. Patch.  Tell "Cato" we're setting up the scent boxes for him!  Linda

Hi Ramona and Happy New Year.  I've been forgetting to send you these pics of Uma!  She is doing wonderful and continuing her SAR training. These pictures were taken during a Water Cadaver Training session late this summer. She was hitting on scent 6ft deep at only 6 1/2 months old. We have quite a bit of snow now and she LOVES it!  We will be going soon to meet my Ski Patrol Team and socialize on the mountain (ha ha).  I hope all is well in Montana. We would love to come visit maybe this summer.  Thanks again for picking out the best pup I could ask for!  Linda

Hi Ramona,  Just wanted to send you a few pictures. Uma is doing great and already has picked up so much! The students love her! She has already started water training and we will be going to the Georgia K-9 Academy this summer. Thanks again for the best pup!  Linda

Hello Ramona,  Sorry I haven't updated sooner. I attended a schutzhund seminar this fall and was pleasantly surprised. Some trainers there talk about some czech lines being VERY sharp. These same people do not know a single thing about any individual dog I have asked about in any Czech bloodline but will spout off their opinions about them. In front of these people one of the trainers (paid) teaching the work remarked "when selecting dogs to make a german shepherd you want some sharpness, without it you wouldn't have a very good german shepherd!" I just had to smile and thought you would too.
Hope all is well on your end. I have checked the website and you have some beautiful pictures posted. Looks like you are training away too.  It is hard to find opportunities here in Montana. 

#2: Hello Ramona! Just got home from the vet and Toby has perfect eyes! So he will have his eyes posted in the cerf database. He is one healthy guy:)   Thank you!

Hi Ramona,  I believe Urso turned 1 today. I just wanted to let you know that he is going to be a great dog. He went through a tough time and ate everything from a Jeep seat to a trampoline. He decided that the crate was not for him and destroyed that too.  But about 6 weeks ago he started having the run of the house at night and has been great ever since.
We were concerned about bringing a new dog into the house with jakey. Jake has adjusted well. We has a 8 year old collie mix that Jake ignores. He is not thrilled with Urso,  but he will pet him occasionally. With autism and Down syndrome this is a big deal. And he is only 1.
One of the reasons we wanted him was family protection. I can tell you he has had a presence since he was 6 months. He comes out of the darkness and all of the sudden he is there.  He is calm when needed. He is still a puppy and a bit overwhelming at times. It is clear this is the dog our family needed.
Enclosed are two photos. One is him looking in on a meeting my wife was having with some local high school kids. The second was his happiness from being sprung from jail (he and Maggie dug under the fence). Thanks,  Joe

Ramona, Just returned from the vet with a good bill of health. Urso has been fitting in nicely. Jake is actually spending time in the same living area with him. The puppy can chew. He is getting 3 walks a day and any chew toy we can find. He did swallow a long tail that we had to pull out of his stomach. Overall it seems like a good fit
Thanks, Joe

Uriah of Sapphire Mountain aka Rudi
Sire: Basko von Grunheide; SchH3,  IPO3,  KKL 1 

Hello Ramona, Rudi(Uriah) has been a great fit for our family. I have attached a few photos at 20 weeks. Everything we do as a family, he wants to be with us and wants to please us. I couldn't imagine a better dog for our family. Thanks for sending him our way. Brian

Hi Ramona!  I just wanted to send a positive comment to you on your breeding program.  We have had "Rudi" Parker here for daycare and boarding and I am just so impressed with him.  He is a very well adjusted and solid pup.  He loves playing with the other dogs, but is also completely settled when crated inside.  His conformation is very nice and I LOVE his pigment.  The Parker family is doing a great job with his socialization and training, and they are keeping him on a high quality kibble with raw meals as well.

Best wishes for continued success with your program!  Jessica Harrison,  Romp N' Run Ranch, Texas
