Ch Palin finished her Championship as a very young girl and spent time maturing at home before starting her Grand Championship campaign.

Shown only very sparingly the last couple of months of 2015 she quickly amassed 11 Grand Championship points with 3 majors under 3 judgesand then finished her Grand Championship in great style :-) She won in specialty and all-breed venues and always had a great time :-). This is a very special Diego daughter with what we hope is an excellent future in show, performance and eventually the whelping box. She is currently enjoying barn hunts with her buddies Edgar and Aiden.

Palin shown going Best Puppy (both days) at the Augusta German Shepherd Dog Club shows in September 2013 under judges Kathy Potter and Dick Jones.

Twister is now a beloved member of the family of dogs owned by Marcia Geraci and is enjoyiedthe wonderful life of an indoor guardian and companion. Thanks to Marcia for giving this great dog an equally great home!!

October 20th, 2013 weekend was a sad weekend for us and for Marcia Geraci. Our beloved Twister who has been
living a great life at Marcia's beautiful farm for the last few months died instantly of an apparent heart attack Saturday evening while out in the yard with Marcia and his running mate Wren. Twister was a very large, very active GSD mix we took into rescue as a baby and raised. Sad day but so grateful to Marcia for
the wonderful times he had being the King of the Kingdom at her place living indoors/outdoors as he pleased and ruling the roost I am so happyhe had that experience in life of being 'very special' and 'very loved'. He was the rescue pup no one wanted ... too big, tooo active, too non-GSD with his down ears but all these years he was a truly wonderful dog who deserved all the love he got because he gave all the love he had.

Please Foster ..... Sometimes you are truly 'entertaining angels'.

We know she will continue to have a wonderful life with Marcia.
