Hokhmah (hoke maw) is Hebrew for Godly wisdom (actually it means a lot more awesome stuff) and is 9.5wks old. She is my next SAR dog and has imprinted well on HR, and is running advanced (very short but with a couple turns) puppy trails beautifully! Today was first day to run them on some one other than me, and she was amazing... I had also forgotten I had an HR hide for my certified dogs when I hide on one of her trails. She found me, wiggled in joyous rapture about to eat her treats when she pulled away and moved a couple feet over to under the hay pallet and pawed... HR found!

This gorgeous pup is out of L'Sabre Von Wolfstraum (owned by Sheri Arnold) and by Komet Von Wolfstraum (not sure who owns this talented dog). She is already 18.4lbs of lean dark sable talent, and has her beautiful mommas long legs at 14"...she needs to slow down on the growth, lol, but she does everything at full speed...

I know I am super behind on my blog, and tons of trails, missions, and HRD stories need to be added, but this munchkin has me busy almost all day.. Whew! Thankfully, Areli has really taken to her and plays wonderfully with her... Akivah tolerates her but I thi2his nose is still a bit snipped and once she is large enough to really play hard with him, I think his soft heart will melt...

Thanks mom's! I knew Komet was bred by her and she had breeding rights, but he is a SAR dog (I thought) and so assumed he was from a different owner.. And yes, Lee knows GSD's inside and out...

I have better pics, but had it on the motion setting and so cannot upload.. Will take better pics to show her off ?

Congratulations, she looks like a beautiful puppy! Looking forward to seeing more of her as she grows.

Her dam, L'Sabre, is the SAR dog. Komet is titled in IPO, and is currently with Lee.

Thanks! I had a feeling u was mixing things up! I kne L'Sabre was a SAR dog, but confused Komet somewhe4, lol.. Yes, definitely need to get some better pics up of her.. She is in her 'light' phase of coloring, but her personality just keeps growing.. She will be a rockstar like her momma and her new bro and sis!

I love seeing photos of my babies.....to clairfy - this is a co-owned, co-bred litter from L'Sabre, who I co-owned, and Komet who I own and is sleeping on his couch in the "Komet pose".....so I am co-breeder on the litter, which carries my kennel name....I also bred both Komet and L'Sabre, and own the other "L" litter puppy, Lynx (Lucca) who is in Maryland doing tracking training at the moment. This litter is linebred on my very beloved Csabre v Wolfstraum - who had two littermates doing SAR, one of whom ended up as a Vermont State Trooper K9...the other went to a gentleman who was a FEMA handler out of NJ in the late 1990's early 2000s.... :( :( :( ...Komet has one daughter doing narcotics detection, his sister Kira (HGH) has a daughter who has FH (98 points) and is certified (at a LE certification) for 5 drugs. The litter is also backmassed on Lord, so lots of ability in those genetics! The litter certainly was bred for working utility - and all pups went to working homes (as stated by the buyers anyway :) :) :) )

Ikarus (Iko) the father of Lynx and L'Sabre is a multi terrain/purpose (???) certified SAR (IPWDA) dog owned by a friend in Vermont who heads a SAR team - all operational dogs are certified IPWDA prior to any going on a call out.....great great dog with a ton of hunt drive and gorgeous to boot! From all my communications with Alex, he is a real rockstar with huge buckets of hunt drive....he should have had people lined up to use him for breeding!!!! Although he is not IPO titled, he was started and showed he had everything needed - but Alex wanted a SAR dog....in his litter, I think 3 others were IPO3s, with one littermate on the podium at a USCA National ....and 2 pups went to IPO homes. Another pup, Rebel, went to Vermont to a team member on Alex's team.....and 2 went to friends who do IPO (one has trialed at the regional level a few times) then I have one as well, Rocket.

This is a 5th/4th generation of von Wolfstraum breeding as well!!! :) :) :)

So glad to see she is so promising!!!

Thanks Lee! I was transposing who did what on the father side of L'Sabre and Komet.. Yes, she has HUGE potential and only age will keep her from getting certified as early as I believe she will be able to, talent wise (yes, that is a projection and an estimate at a mere 9.75wks old, but I believe it accurate... We will seee?).

Tug is her favorite right now... These pics are from this morning

Ack! Measured a squirming puppy with help, yesterday and she was 14"...........woke up at 0530 and took her down for potty break, breakfast and thought she looked taller.... She is 15"!!! One night growth spurt... 19lbs of lean lanky puppy...... I would slow the vitamins (vitamin c, bee pollen, and Springtime longevity) , but as fast as she is growing I don't think it wise... Puppy food might be stopped though... Hmmm..

OK, so Hokhmah will be 11wks tomorrow but she already has adult fur from slightly below shoulder blades and down tail! She has had no bathes, gets bee pollen, vitamin c, fresh factors and puppy Fromm..... She is healthy and happy, but I have never had a puppy start shedding their coat so early, lol!

Hokhmah's cousin Quinn also had a change in his coat at 11 weeks!

He got a wavy spot down his back!

Now, at 7 1/2 months the "wave" is disappearing! :crying:

Beautiful!!

Wonder if it is a genetic thing.. Don't mind it) as long as the shedding doesn't start early too???), I just found it interesting at how much 'big dog' fur she has at just 11wks... Bet was impressed with how she handled her puppy shot and nail trim, etc..

Seems all the pups are very curious, very bold, social and smart..... Rocket figured out how to untangle herself last night from wrapping the tie out around a tree....some of them do it all the time and I have to go point them in the right direction....she just followed the pressure to release it and was untangled in no time!

This litter should have a fairly tight coat like grandmother Csabre since they are linebred on her and really do resemble her.

Tha KS Lee.. Yeah, Hokhmah grabs her leash and carry it everywhere.. She is super quick to figure out human intentions.. My dogs have a large vocabulary because I talk to them all the time and of course train SAR, etc.. But Hokhmah has asked to go out to go potty since I got her, and today, I was going up the stairs and I was about two from the top when I set her down.. I had to go back down to grab something. I waved my hand up the stairs and told her to go up and stay.. She did, waiting at the top for me.. That doesn't seem like much, but she is my shadow (as are my other two) and for her to grasp the continuing up and waiting while I disappear and return was very astute of her
