Xoana’s Xtreme boys:
Xoana had been a bit restless for a couple of days so I knew she was close. I sat wrapping presents (every year, I promise myself that I will not wait until the last minute to wrap again next year… and yet every Christmas Eva, I find myself up all night wrapping…) and Xoana just could not get close enough- sitting on me, pushing presents out of the way, etc. Finally, I had to actually lock her out of my room to get anything done. At about 11:pm, I could feel/hear her pacing back and forth at the door and panting and whimpering, and I just had this feeling in my gut that she was really in labor. So I let her back in and had my husband take over the wrapping as I sat and snuggled her and rubbed her belly. I could definitely feel that she had some good, strong contractions. At 12:02 am, Christmas morning, our first little girl was born. 7 more perfect, healthy, beautiful babies soon followed <3 What a Christmas blessing! <3 Ethan is one of Xoana’s favorites and he wanted to sit with us while she had her babies. It was a long night, so he was only awake intermittently, but I know Xoana appreciated having her little buddy there. <3
“Schatzie” Guardian Cupid Von Gottschalk
Hi everyone, Cupid here. I’m doing awesome and enjoying my sister dogs here. My favorites include flying onto their backs and running away from or to get them. I had another visit with my Vet today and I’ve gained 10 pounds in four weeks. She said I was a sweetheart and very healthy. I start school on April 12th but I’m learning the basics in the mean time. The little boy here wanted to know what my backpack would look like cause everybody that goes to school has a back pack. I get to go on lots of car rides and walks and I’m meeting lots of peoples and dogs. I’m really a confident outgoing girl and I believe I can do everything I put my mind to. There is so much to choose from though. I’m such a good dog and I attract lots of attention wherever I go.
Hi guys Cupid here with another update. I’ve started school now and I’ve gone to two classes everyone says I’m beautiful and confident. Needless to say I’m a quick learner to I’ve got my set ,my down, my heel and my come all ,figured out, At least most of the time. The other day mom and I had a herd of deer run across in front of us while walking. And then we got back to the yard and the crazy goose try to check me out. It was flying really low. I get lots of playtime with my sisters and awesome walks with mom. I’m doing really well And I’ll write again soon
Hi everyone, Cupid here. Can you believe I’m 8months old? Mom caught me watching the new neighbors again. There have been lots of changes in the neighborhood and I have to stay on top of things.
Mom says we are moving too when the house sells. I’ve been watching her painting and even helping now and then. My favorite is to back my butt into a freshly painted wall or to put my head between railings. Needless to say I’ve had some interesting paint designs on my body. I also like playing in the water that comes out of the hose and putting my toys in the shower when Mom’s in there. ( Cupid ‘s rule: There shall not be any closed doors between Mom and I). I continue to train Mom as she continues to train me. We have lots of fun training each other. I’ll catch y’all again soon. All my lovies to the family. CupidHi Guardian Family it’s Cupid with an update. I have been a busy girl. Today I passed my AKC STAR puppy test with flying colors. I’m continuing to go to school too. It’s a great place to show off. And I love the peoples. I’m in a class with all older and bigger dogs and I continue to shine. I checked my weight at the Vets the other day and like all other times I’ve gained another 10 lbs., so I am 44 now.
Cupid and I are wishing y’all a Happy Thanksgiving
Cupid says hi
We were out on a walk today and Miss Cupid stopped traffic with her beautiful body. The guy stopped and backed up and wanted to know where I got her, she was so beautiful (and with a tail) I past the info along. She really is the greatest dog I have ever had the privilege to love. Her personality is the best. I love it when out of the blue she appears in my lap just to say hi and get some extra love. She is always at my side no matter where I go or what I might be trying to do. And more curiosity that a cat. Hope Teddy is doing well and your trip to Ohio was awesome.
Will do. Cupid gets lots of compliments wherever we go. She truly is beautiful inside and out. Hope Korbin continues to do well and our love to your family as well.
Neighbor hood watch. As she sits underneath the sign that says Rottweiler on Duty.
Cupid taking a break. She keeps me laughing
“King” Guardian Prancer Von Gottschalk
I just wanted to give you an update on King. It was a year ago today we drove to Indiana to pick him up. We love him so much. He is absolutely beautiful. When i walk him. People stop be and tell me he is the prettiest Rottweiler they have ever seen. Some stop me and say. He looks just like a Rottweiler with a tail. LOL. I then have to tell them all Rotts are born with tails. His was never docked and will never be. He has the best temperament of any dog i have ever owned. I just want to thank you for what you have done for this breed. I will always recommend you if someone ask me if I know a reputable breeder. I will never purchase from any other breeder. Thank you so much for my beautiful boy King. AKA Prancer. I have included some pictures for you to enjoy

“Tank” Guardian Blitzen Von Gottschalk
Hi, Alice. I thought you’d like to see Tank as he approaches his Xmas birthday. He’s an amazing boy, so sweet smart goofy and loyal, and ridiculously handsome. He’s showered in love and attention and gives even more back. Not only from my family but many others in our community, as he goes everywhere with us—school drop off and pick up, soccer games, errands, hikes, vacation. He’s a great ambassador of the breed, and gets compliments on his good looks and temperament all the time. We’re fairly decent with instruction but he’s so easy to train. From two months or so I could tell him to stay, and not go for his food, walk away out of sight and return to him patiently waiting to be released. And he’s very agile for a big guy—a little over a hundred lbs and I think still filling out a bit. Loves a ball and can catch it over the shoulder, off a bunch, on the fly. And dove off the first dock he was on, and swam like a champ. A few photos to follow.
