2019 Recap

As we look back to 2019 and reflect on the goals we set many years ago when getting into breeding, we have to admit that this year surpassed even our most ambitious dreams.  Never did we dream that, from one litter, one sibling would break the CKC BIS record (Pan), while another would win the Medallion Rottweiler Club Specialty (Nox), while a third brother would become the first Rottweiler to earn the Agility Grand Champion title (Strider).   Or that one owner would see her dog make it into the top ten all breeds (Pan), while her other dog won the Canadian National Specialty from the Veteran class (Tryst). 

As the wins and awards just kept coming, all we knew is that it couldn't all be happening to nicer people.  After all, our breeding goals first and foremost were to place every pup into a loving home in which the owner might keep them happy and busy.  And busy they were...


2019 Year of The Pan

Pan finished 2019 as the #1 Rottweiler #10 All Breeds!

Congratulations Pan and Lori-Ann on your TWELVE Best in Show wins in 2019, breaking the record for the most BIS wins by a Rottweiler in one year!!! 

Pan also finished his AKC Championship, CKC GRCHX, CKC CD, won the Manitoba Working/Herding Specialty and produced his first litter in 2019!

Congratulations Dawn Phillips and Kat C, as well as breeder Tammy Ausloos!

2019 Litters

We had one Esmond Litter in 2019, sired by Chip and out of SOLA!  All six pups went to repeat homes so we do not have any new owners to welcome into our Esmond family this year.  However, Sully, Nox and Pan sired litters for other breeders, so we will be eager to stay involved with these pups and owners.

There were also plenty of pups earning the TT, HIC, CGN or CGC titles as well as various trick dog titles. 

Our own dogs also had a few accomplishments this year with Loki earning his U-RO3 title and Vida earning her U-CH and RO1.  We also enjoyed watching our new addition, JJ the Papillon, winning across the world in 2019 to finish his Japan CH, Korean, CH, China Jr. CH, and winning World Jr. Winner & Asia Winner as well as BOB at the Shanghai Winner Show and WD at the Japan International Dog Show.  JJ now has three CACIBs toward his FCI International Championship and we're excited to see what his future holds!

Unfortunately, 2019 also dealt us some terrible losses - too many to count here without adding to the heartache for their owners and ourselves.  Most were old dogs.  Some were not.  Those that were not serve as a good reminder to all of us as breeders to refocus on longevity in our breed.  While 2019 welcomed two new 14 year olds (Aspen & Ruckus) and three new 13 year olds (Simone, Takoda and Skye), not enough dogs in our breed are reaching these milestones any longer.  We hope that in 2020 and beyond, we'll see breeders begin working together to restore longevity to the breed.  Until then, we'll say Godspeed to our own dogs who passed this year... Albert, Simone and Hope.  The house seems very empty these days with just the three Rottweilers we have left.  We also mourn the loss of our friend, Steve Paschkewitz, owner of Patton, Truman and Stella.  Thank you to Tammy Ausloos for taking Truman and Stella into her home and to all of our extended friends and family for participating in their care.

As always, we will focus on the positive and will be cheering our friends and puppy owners on to success in 2020.
