I have an umlaut in my kennel name. I like the meaning so just dealt with the fact that the AKC won't recognize them.

I like the last one myself.

if it's easy to pronounce it's not exotic.

I love your Hypothetical kennel name
For real?! Do any of you rent? We had SUCH a hard time finding enough space for this summer. None of us actually own property but my family has been there every summer since the 50s, maybe earlier. They know pretty much everyone who's been on the lake longer than a few years (so many people come and go) and we get invited to the association meetings, lol. My dad and uncle are putting some pressure on the owners of a cottage my family rented for probably 20 years running, trying to get them to sell.

I'll be there July 28-August 11, just put in my vacay slips.

I like the first one, it rolls off the tongue very easily and is easy to read/pronounce right off the bat.

Ask your parents if the know the Deederly's. My Dad grew up there so he knows a lot of people too. It has gotten so popular lately that I can't keep up with everyone. We are on White Aspen, which is right by Pine Groove Beach, or 1/2 mile before the boat launch if you take a left at the golf course. Right now I don't rent. We are still slowly piecing our cottage together. It is/was a fixer upper and we stripped it to the studs. We aren't made of gold (not even bronze ) and have been doing the work by ourselves and slowly. This summer, fingers crossed it should be complete! My Parents don't rent either, not sure why though. But where are you renting this year? All my favorite childhood memories are up there...one place I always feel at peace! I have 2 cottage right by me for sale, you should buy one and then when I eventually get a dog they could have play dates on the beach

I'm renting my mom's cousin's place this year. If you walk out the door at Bozo's and turn right (towards the Chapel), it's about the 6th or so cottage on the left. Not the greatest spot on the lake for the beach aspect (no beach, steep hill, have to float out for sun b/c the dock is shaded) but he's got a really long property so I never have trouble with my dogs being outside off lead. He's only got one bathroom and we've got so many people now my mom caved and rented one of those mcmansion places but I'm still renting the other place b/c of my dogs, hopefully my income tax return will cover it! All the places we grew up at would be on your section of the lake but on the other side, facing south, on Chapel Road (just a sandy two-track, between the Chapel and the fire station). They're all tiny places - Jipping's, Greidanus', Owen's (the one we're after), Elhart's (one my family has rented since the 60s).

I'll tell you when I fell in love with GSDs.... are you familiar with the Burger place? It's a red house and a smaller red cottage, it would be across from you and to your right. Those people had a GSD called Chelsea. I say "had" because I don't believe there's any chance she could still be alive given the time frame. That was the dog that sold me on GSDs. We'd walk the beach down to their place frog hunting and she would come out and say hi. Then she'd follow us back to our place and play with us. At the time it seemed like everyone around there knew her so it was never a problem. When we got called in for supper we'd say "Chelsea go home now" and she'd trot back down the beach to the Burger's. There was a very old woman living in the home, she may be passed now too. Sometimes my cousin and I would talk to her. I'm sure the people that come now would have no idea who I am, but I still walk down that beach. They are on their third, maybe even forth generation of GSD. Chelsea, then her daughter Heidi, then her daughter Greta. One of them, I think Heidi, lost a leg in a boating accident and is a tripod dog.
