Yngo's 9th Birthday Celebration

Yngo's 10th Birthday Celebration

"The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in determination."
                                                                                                               ~ Tommy Lasorda

YNGO was imported from Belgium as a young dog and was acquired by Mike on the day of his first birthday.  He is a joy to live with and great fun to train.

I admired Yngo since I first saw him and most likely would have made the trip up to Canada to breed to him even if I hadn't married his owner.   Yngo embodied all the traits that I love in a Rottweiler... a sound mind in a robust body, both of which are constantly ready for anything.  In my years of owning and training dogs, I've not found one that I enjoyed living with more.

Yngo's accomplishments and offspring speak for themselves.  From his relentless desire to work and his unnerving ability to find humor in that work, right through to his unparalleled love for children, we found Yngo to be truly special dog.  The ride he took us on over the past decade was more than we'd ever expected!

We found that Yngo made a unique contribution to the breed in a way we never thought that one dog could.  He brought some truly fabulous dog people together.  The support and camaraderie that the Yngo puppy owners have shown each other, as well as the close personal friendships that have subsequently developed, are Yngo's legacy.  

On this page, we would like to introduce you to the Yngo we love.  Not just our show and working dog, but our very best  friend and companion.  For that is where Yngo was most valued.   Both Mike and I have been in dogs long enough to know that we will never have another like Yngo.  To that end, we were determined to make the most of every day we had with him!


Yngo was the 2003 MRC Specialty Winners Dog and received an Award of Merit there as well.

Shortly thereafter, Yngo finished his AKC Championship with four majors in just 11 showings.
He was also WD/BOW/BISS at an ARC Regional, and won a Group Placement en route to his AKC Championship!!!

Here in Canada, Yngo is a multiple Best of Breed winner, Group Placer and Multi BISS winner, finishing #1 overall in 2003.

We are proud to say that Yngo has been completely owner-handled to every one of his wins & titles.

We did not show Yngo for rankings...instead, we brought him out when we knew his puppy owners would be there,
and periodically to Specialties and Sieger Shows, just to show him off and to let him socialize with his "fans". 
The winning he did surprised even us.  Although we're certainly not complaining!

This WAS Yngo's Best of Breed Rosette

Peek-a-boo...Yngo waits his turn in the group.

Thank you to Frank and Cheryl Carruthers
for taking these candids in Brockville, ON.

Yngo's favorite "game"...

Thank you to Paul Wright for all of the photos of Yngo on the Schutzhund field!

Yngo & Mike earned the SchI title on their very first try, going High Scoring SchI with scores of 90-80-94 "a".
(This score also qualified them as a Top Ten Schutzhund I team in 2003!!!)

They earned their SchII on their first try as well!!!

Yngo didn't manage the SchIII on the first try, but we are proud to say that he earned it
completely owner-handled, using all positive methods of training!

As you'll notice, we have more photos of Yngo playing than anything else.
Yngo is truly a family member and he believes that his most important job in life is to make us laugh.

And he does that job well!
Just take a look at what really happened as we attempted to get these photos...

Yngo is the water dog supreme and the king of all sticks.
He can be found at the lake more frequently than at shows or trials.

Yngo's zest for life is contageous...He even knows how to make the Canadian winters fun!

We believe that we will not make progress as a breed without keeping track of, and being honest about, all that our dogs produce. For that reason,
We encourage all of Yngo's puppy owners to submit and release both passing and failing health clearance results.


Yngo is now retired to a life of leisure.  He spends his days swimming, playing and doing just about whatever he wants.

Words cannot express the joy that Yngo has brought to our family.
He has also managed to bring joy to many others and for that we are immensely proud. 
He's doing very well in his "Old Age" and we hope that we will be blessed with many more years. 

Yngo has been shown four times as a Veteran...

He was still certain he could run with the young boys...and he did!

Yngo didn't win that day (he was V-3 in the Working Class), but he sure was happy to be back in the ring!!!

Yngo's 11th Birthday was as fun as ever!
We don't have nearly as many photos to share, but want to thank everyone who sent gifts.
Yngo is particularly fond of the HUGE dinosaur from Kay & Bob Willmarth!!!

Yngo (almost) stacked at 11 years.


It's Yngo's 12th Birthday and we celebrated by buying a new house!!!
Yngo thinks that a yard full of un-marked trees is the best Birthday present yet!!!
