“Bristow” Guardian Peyton Von Gottschalk
Hello from the NW Suburbs of Chicago! We’ve been meaning to send you an email sooner but we’ve been busy busy busy with the puppy! First off, everything is going great! Bristow (aka Peyton), has been to the vet a handful of times now (most recently Monday). The vet LOVES her and says she’s doing fantastic. She’s already up to 21 lbs, and he guesses she’ll be about 30 when we go see him again at the end of the month.
Bristow has been out and about with us all over. She comes to our little gym with us on the weekends and is an absolute star. Everyone always asks how she is doing and comments about how big she’s getting, and how big she will be eventually! She’s learned a few commands already, but once in a while she’ll get distracted by something and it’s hard to get her attention when she’s so focused on something else. She was a “natural sitter” and that’s by far her best command, and she’s getting better at walking on a lead every day.
I’ve included a few pictures for you. Hope everything is going well, and it seems like you’ll be drowning in puppies again soon enough!!

Guardian Pangea Von Gottschalk
Just wanted to report that after one week our baby girl is still a bundle of joy!
She is just so-o-o-o beautiful! and growing like a weed.
She is very affectionate and fun to play with.
We can’t say enough good things about her.
When she saw *fire* (fireplace) for the first time it was amusing to watch her reaction. She is very alert. She always makes us smile, ok, not exactly always!
I LOVE this photo of Pangea standing her ground against this massive cow! Only a pup and already a rottie!! (Pearl, the cow, was only making sure Pangea did not get to close to her new calf)
Thought you might enjoy pics of Pangea taken this a.m. She’s an awesome puppy and doing well.
Hope all is well for you, your adorable kids and lovable rotts.
We let Pangea run around outside all night right now (while the chickens are penned up). She has NO PROBLEM catching a flying chicken in mid air! She is the most fun to watch when we go on rides around the homestead as she taunts the cows.
Hopefully, we’ll get her professional training started soon.
Your new home in the country looks so wonderful!
Pangea is still plenty full of energy at 2, but we are now ready for our second Rott. Would you please let us know when a puppy with her sweet looks becomes available? We will still have to schedule a spaying for Pangea beforehand. She does not like going to the vet and has thrown up on every trip.
Our younger son’s friends recently came with their dogs to romp and play in the “100-acre woods” and Pangea loved them – a neutered male pitbull, and a long-haired bird dog (who spent most of his time in the pond). Pangea is used to putting up with our older blue heeler, M’Aussie Blue who picks on her and lets her know that the back porch is hers. Pangea gets the bigger front porch (and the “porch cat” to chase).
Pangea loves the cows and goats, well, she loves trying to herd them. She does well with her commands as long as she isn’t trying to play with us (which she prefers over sitting or staying). Even though she loves to jump, she is very settled around our 6 and 10-year old nephews and even smaller daughters of my cousin. Well, except for that dino tail, it’s always moving! She is a very happy girl.
Just know that when life is hard, I draw strength from your life experiences and our beautiful Pangea reminds me every day not to give up hope.
God bless you and your little ones and your hubby,
“Lucy” Guardian Pandora Von Gottschalk
I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to touch base with you to let you know that Pandora is doing wonderful. We could not be more happy and in love with her. She is very well behaved, and her coat looks beautiful (I spend a lot of time keeping her clean and well groomed). Attached to this email is a picture of her which is being used for labeling the table’s at our wedding (each table will have a picture which has a number on it so people know where to sit). As you can see in the picture, she is beautiful. Everyone loves her! I truly think that she is the most beautiful Rottweiler that I have ever seen (and everyone tells me this when they first meet her).
Hillary and I are getting married on November 6th, and we are going away for 1 week for our honeymoon. We are worried about leaving Pandora for 1 week (it will be the first time that she has not spent the night with us), but fortunately she is staying at Hillary’s mother’s house while we are gone (her mother has a beautiful black lab which is Pandora’s best friend).
Pandora is approaching her 1 year old birthday in a few weeks. She has gradually put on some size (I have not had her weighed in a few months but I think she is around 70 to 77 lbs right now). I still have her eating Fromm Large Bread Puppy Food. You mentioned that we need to keep her on this for 2 years. Pandora seems a little undersized and she is not a huge eater. Do you think we should continue to keep her on the Puppy food for another year, or should we start to gradually switch her over to regular food? If we switch her to regular food, should we use Fromm Large Bread Adult Food?
Sorry for bothering you and hopefully we can come check out your new home sometime soon. I know Pandora would love to come play with some of her family.
