Norris completes his AKC Open Fast title!!!

January 1, 2009

Another year has passed and Mike and I keep asking ourselves why the dogs and the kids keep growing up, while we feel like we haven't aged a day!  Of course, the kids would probably tell us differently haha.  Despite this, I'm going to start out our New Year letter with family updates because Cassie and Sarah have been making us very proud.  Sarah graduated from Nursing School, making the Dean's List, and has recently been offered an Emergency Room position which is what she'd been hoping for.  Sarah also puchased her first home in December!  Cassie is mid-way through her first year at Queen's University.  We are pleased that she chose this school and are amazed by her heavy class load.  She has adjusted very well.  As everyone can imagine, Mike is an extremely proud father these days and I couldn't be happier for everyone's successes. 

The dogs continued to bring us joy thoughout 2008.  A few are getting older... Beca is 11 1/2, Envy nearly 11 and, although it's impossible to believe, Yngo is close to 10 years old.  However, all three are as strong and energetic as ever, so we remain hopeful that they'll be with us for a long while.  Even Iza becomes a veteran this year, turning seven at the end of January.  Our young dogs are excelling, with Simone thrilling us with a Best in Specialty win at the 2008 Canadian National, as well as Best of Opposite Sex at specialty shows in both the USA and Canada in 2008, and Nova working toward her advanced obedience titles. 

We welcomed Jill in November of 2008 and are very thankful to John and Jeanine Belbin of Allerhochst Rottweilers of Australia for offering this promising girl to us.  It did take us a few days to get accustomed to her tail, but Jill's demeanor is such that it's hard to resist smiling when we see it constantly wagging!  We are also currently sharing our home with Deke, an Ely/Caygeon son who we hope will make his way to the Belbins in the future. 

2008 was "The Year of the Puppy" here at Esmond Rottweilers.  In addition to Chris and Bev Vanstone's Hockey Litter, we enjoyed spending time with pups from Becky and Tony Dove's Axel/Mia Litter, and also produced our own W Litter and X Litter.  These litters brought us our newest pups, Hope and Smooch.   I have to admit that breeding dogs this year was really wonderful, with the large marjority of pups staying within our existing group of owners.  A special thank you to all who have come back to us for their second or third pup.  I can't tell you how much peace of mind it gives me to be able to place our pups in homes that we already have relationships with.  Every breeder should be this lucky.  These four litters also helped us to welcome the following new owners to the Esmondrott family:  Jen Perry, Kristen Manger, Linda Dillard, Kay & Bob Willmarth and Elaine Swancer.   We thank each of you for your patience and hope that your new pup is everything you've dreamed of. 

One of my favorite things to do every December 31st is to put together our year end list of accomplishments.  No matter how many years I complile this, the results never fail to amaze me.  Congratulations to each and every dog and owner on this list.  Your love and dedication to your pups does not go unnoticed.

2008 also saw 13 pups pass the Temperament Test, 3 pass the Herding Instinct Test and 11 earn their CGC (or CGN) certificate.  Nine were certified as Registered Therapy Dogs.  Congratulations to all...we hope your future endeavors go as smoothly!

We are pleased to announce that both Iza and Bailey have become eligible for the ARC Bronze Dam award, each from their first, and in Bailey's case, only litter.   Yngo again won the ARC Prico award, and was named the RCC Top Producing sire for the fifth consecutive year.  We are also happy that Yngo helped four of the girls who were bred to him acheive their production awards.  Thank you to all of the dedicated breeders and owners who made this happen. 

As always, we are particularly proud of the most versatile pups and would like to congratulate Pauline Karalia and Lisa Kramer on accomplishing the VCD2 designation with Jetta and Juna.  In 2008, Bailey and Rebel received the ARC Versatility Excellent Award, with Griffin, Blitz, Moxee and Jetta receiving their Versatility Award.  Several pups have qualified for these awards in the remainder of 2008, but we'll let those be a surprise when they're announced.  We are also very proud of Bailey, Richter, Beckham, Blitz, Jetta & Jazz  for earning High in Trial awards in 2008!

Our plans for 2009 are varied.  Mike will continue to pursue his judging licenses and is currently working through the Toy Breeds.  I have decided to bite the bullet and complete my requirements for judging Rottweilers.  For this reason, we will be showing a bit less in 2009, but we promise to try to make it out to some of the larger events to socialize.  We are currently planning our first linebreeding on Yngo, and are eagerly anticipating this.  Simone will also have her first breeding in 2009, a linebreeding on Valerie McGraw's beloved Magnum.  Lastly, we have approved a few outside breedings for our boys in 2009 and will update the website with these soon.  Mostly, we will be letting our youngsters grow up while giving our senior dogs loads of love and attention.  We also hope to spend more time with family and friends in 2009.  A small repayment for all that so many have given their time so generously to us over the past years.

We wish you all the best in 2009 and hope that this year sees all of your dreams come true!
