becomes the first Rottweiler in History to earn the

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).
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...
Year of The Pan
finished 2019 as the #1 Rottweiler #10 All Breeds!
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!!!

Manitoba Working/Herding Specialty and produced his first litter in 2019!

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.

were also plenty of pups earning the TT, HIC, CGN or CGC titles as
well as various trick dog titles.
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
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!
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.
always, we will focus on the positive and will be cheering our
friends and puppy owners on to success in 2020.
