2012 was a whirlwind of a year for us.  I can't say that we really know where it all went.  Both Mike and I stayed very busy at work, giving us a bit less time for dog shows last year.  We did manage to attend the ARC, MRC and SRC specialties, as well as a few Canadian all-breed shows.  Our biggest news is that Ann recently wrote the CKC judging exams and passed! She is now on permit for 16 working breeds (Hovawart through Tibetan Mastiff).  Mike continues to progress in his judging assignments.  He is currently licensed for all of the Working and Toy breeds as well as one half of the Hound breeds. 

Unfortunately, we lost both Iza and Bailey in 2012.  These girls had huge personalities, so things are a bit more quiet around here these days.  We are delighted to say that Envy is still with us at almost 15 years of age!  Aiden, Simone and Nova are still going strong at six and seven years old, And the youngsters Hope (age 4) and Itchy (age 3) are as wild as ever!  We did add a new puppy in 2012... Georgia, out of the Patton/Itchy litter.  Georgia is everything we've hoped for in a pup.  We didn't expect to keep her, but are so pleased that we did!  Watch for Georgia at AKC events in the coming year. 

We didn't show anyone very seriously in 2012.  Simone earned her American and Canadian Rally Excellent titles, as well as her Carting Started and Carting Intermediate titles.  Itchy earned her AKC RN title and daughter, Georgia, started her career off with a bang, finishing her Canadian Championship at six months and winning several puppy groups along the way. 

2012 brought us two promising litters, both sired by Patton. Our DD Litter was simply wonderful and, with it, we added one new owner into our family.  Please help us to welcome Jan Greey of Ontario.  Jan, we wish you much success with Keeper!  Our EE Litter, co-bred with Tammy Ausloos and Julia Foster, is still young.  The pups will be going to their homes at the end of January.  We also were involved in two co-breedings... the first with Peg Langon & Nan Faile, who bred Jemme to Pilot, and the other with Perri & Andrew Yinger who bred Clover to Ted.  These litters produced 16 pups between them, and we welcome all of their owners to our extended family. 


As always, my favorite thing to do on December 31st is to put together our year end list of accomplishments.  Congratulations to each and every dog and owner on this list.  Your hard work is a testament to your love of your dogs.  We are so proud of every one of these dogs and owners!

Yngo's pups from ourside breedings continue to do well with Usher earning MACH4, Juna earning her UDX3 and MX, Jada earning her American Championship and AX titles, Jetta earning the TQX, Gavin earning his American Championship, Toro passing the FH, Jazz earning his MOTCH, Blitz and Breve earning their HSAs titles, Beckham earning her OJP, AXP and NFP titles, Moxee earning the HIAs title, Flex and Rogan earning their American CD titles and Cisco finishing his RAE.  Gable's pups also did very well, earning too many titles for me to keep track of.  A special mention to Lisa Kramer and Lorenz for earning both the SchHIII and UD titles to make him only one of a few dogs in history to obtain these in addition to a Championship.  Nevar kids also did well this year with Lucy earning the American Championship and TD titles, Tank earning his American CD and Grog finishing the American CDX.  And Bianka's son, Hero, earned his American CD, RA and RE titles.

The pups attended just a couple of specialties.  Rumor thrilled us by going Winners Bitch at the 2012 American Rottweiler Club National.  Her dam, Itchy, won Best of Opposite Sex at the 2012 Sovereign Rottweiler Club Specialty, Maggie won an AOM at the New Mexico Specialty and Kenya won Best Puppy and Best in Sweepstakes at the Alaska Specialty.  Not to be outdone, the working dogs also did well at the big events, with Wizard winning High in Trial in both obedience and agility at the 2012 Colonial Rottweiler Club Specialty and Bo winning High in Trial at the ARC National.  Simone also won Reserve High in Trial in Carting at the ARC National.  She's still blaming the "reserve" part on handler errors haha.

For the SIXTH year in a row, Yngo won the ARC Prico Award for having produced the highest number of working titleholders in a given year.  For the second time, Nova won the corresponding Taxi Award for being the dam to produce the most working titleholders.  Great job Yngo/Nova kids!!!  Yngo also had a milestone in 2012, being the only sire to ever produce ARC Top Ten winners in EVERY VENUE in a given year and his daughter, Simone, tied for the ARC Anka Award for the dam to produce the most AKC Champions for 2011. 

Iza was awarded the ARC Gold Dam Award, both Gable and Jetta qualified for the ARC Silver Sire and Dam awards respectively, and Simone received her ARC Bronze Dam award.  And on the second to the last day of the year, Nevar qualified as an ARC Bronze Sire!   For those keeping track, Emma is just one point from ARC Gold Dam status and both Gable and Bailey are getting close to their Gold Production Awards as well!  Aiden also earned the ARC Versatility Excellent Award at this year's National. 

Two of Yngo's pups also had great success at the 2012 Eukanuba Championship.  Usher finished 6th in his very competitive 24" height division to win the medallion for Agility and Benelli was honored with the AKC Ace Award for his hundreds of hours of therapy work.  Great job to owners Lois Eid and Skip & Kelly Skiptunas for letting the world see what wonderful things our breed can do!  Benelli was also awarded the Colonial Rottweiler Club's Seger Medallion as well as the ARC Mirko Medallion and Anvil T.R.U.E Award in 2012.

Lastly, 2012 also saw five pups pass the Temperament Test, ten pass the Herding Instinct test, seven earn their CGC (or CGN) certificate and four pass the Therapy Dog International Test.


Our breeding plans for 2013 are a bit up in the air, with the Simone/Gandalf breeding failing to come to fruition.  We will be moving the Itchy/Yngo breeding up a few months, but have not yet decided whether to try again with Simone.  As in 2011, there will be several co-bred litters involving Simone daughters.  Please continue to check our website for updated co-breedings as the year progresses.  The co-breeders WILL be interviewing new homes, and we are confident in referring new homes to any co-breedings that we list on our website. 

There will be a few changes to note for 2013 onward.  The first is that we will only be showing dogs that we own or co-own, in all venues.  This is in an effort to adhere to the CKC rules for judges.  The second is that we have updated our Puppy Contract and will soon be revising our Puppy Evaluation Program.  Please be aware of these changes if you are hoping for a new puppy in the coming year.

As always, we hope that the new year brings success and happiness to each and every one of you, as well as health and longevity to your four legged friends!
