Not sure if this is the right place, not sure where the right place for this would be, so mods, sorry!

Anyone know if Ursus von Batu is alive or when he died? He was such a great and beautiful dog, and he's my pup's great grandfather. I was just wondering because I have googled it and have came up with nothing but pictures or Ursus in his prime.

Yep, that's him. I know it's not probable, but I guess he would be because there would be news right? Someone would know...

I just sent you a PM to see if our dogs are closely related, as they share the same great grandfather, Ursus von Batu. Plus, Nara's breeder was originally from FL, then moved to VA (which is where we bought her), and now they live back down in FL.

GSDOwner2008 hasn't posted since 2010 I think, so I am not sure they are checking their PMs.

ETA: Ursas was VA1 -- world sieger at least 1 year, maybe two. He is behind a lot of dogs.

So I was off by 1 generation. Ursus is Nara's great great grandfather, just like yours. Nara was born November 22, 2007. Here's her pedigree on her Mom's side:

It's pretty clear a generation for dogs isn't all that long :)

I can't zoom in enough to see Nara's paperwork. I'm guessing Nara is her call name? Traveler is really Pascha vom haus Storr. That's a mouthful-even yelling TRAVELER!! a bunch of times as he's shooting off after some cat or squirrel is too long. 100% recall? Probably not in my lifetime.

Nara's mom is Ninja. Ursus is Ninja's grandfather, so I was right initially. Ursus is Nara's great grandfather.

Nara's full AKC-registered name is Nara Simha Devi Vom Engel.

Nzo says hi to all his cousins - however many time removed they are. Ursus von Batu is his great great grandad too.

Welcome to the family.
