    Thank you for your comment on Victor and Jamie Lee's photo. It is hard to get Jamie to look at me. She does not seem fond of picture taking, but Victor is awesome. It takes 10-15 shots to get one good one.

    its very possible they just look alike. I dont know exactly Shasta's pedigree except that her dad is a german showline FROM germany. It was an accidental litter as her mom was scheduled to be spayed (she was 6yrs old) and her dad is a year old. They were keeping them seperated because she was in heat. He chewed through two walls and a couch to get to her while they were gone for a few days and had friends taking care of the house and dogs.

    Personally I would feed Abady or Annamaet. You are in Chicago you can get Abady easily. This is from a guy that is very close to the industry, me.

    Oh I bet!! I hate leashlaws when you have a wellbehaved dog, but I guess there's no getting around it. Lol.

    Thank you . I noticed that they usually use different tones when barking for different thinds. So when they were using an excited bark I would tell them speak and treat them. If they used a deeper one (like a frustrated or letting somebody know this was their property) I said protect. I like it much better than having them growl or lunge, because I know they won't hurt anybody and end up having to be put to sleep.

    Protect is really just speak, using a different word and tone. When I say speak, Motomo and Koda both bark with high-pitched tones that are playful. But when I say protect, Motomo barks in a deep voice. Koda is learning to do the same. It is a safety trick I use to keep from needing a real protection dog. I live in a pretty bad neighborhood and it's not always safe for me to walk around without a large group.
