There are about only 60 of these dogs in the nation. She is such a good dog. She was the crowd favorite (including with the German judge). We started with 21 dogs and ended up with 10. Big group actually.
So thanks again for this dog. She is so incredibly special and has touched so many people (she made one evaluator cry). Technically she is not a titled DSR dog yet as we need to go to a real disaster before we can get our title."
Hooray for Java and Jodie!! You go, girls!!

Unfortunately, the Trempealeau paper does not have a web site, but here is the picture of Deputies Shawnee and MacDonah. Congrats to all and a very long and happy retirement Cliffer!!K9 Cliff vom Grand Kevin is retiring from the LaCrosse County Sheriff's Department, and young Sabiye von Bachbett will be covering Cliff's "beat" from now on. And of course, Sabiye's sister, Shawnee von Bachbett, has been sworn in as a deputy in neighboring Trempealeau County, where her and Sabiye's Mom, Heline vom Talersberg, is ALSO an active police K9. And this past week, all of the K9s made the local news, with articles in the LaCrosse Tribune and in the Trempealeau County Times. Here is a link to the Tribune article on Cliff and Sabiye and it includes a photo of the two together.

K9 Cliff and handler Brandon Stoughtenger did a demo at the D.A.R.E. graduation for a fith grade class at a local school today. He was a real hit! Many people associate Cliff with his video on Youtube Extreme Police K9 where he looks, well, like a beast! And he is a beast in protection work, but like a really great German Boxer should, he has a solid, reliable, friendly temperament, and is extremely trustworthy. He loves kids, and enjoys doing these demos where he gets to meet his adoring public!

Virginia Countess (aka Vonnie),
One year ago today, Sofia delivered our biggest litter in over 20 years of breeding, eleven sassy, healthy baby Boxers! Here's a picture of the very tired Mom and her active brood of seven girls and four boys!
May they and their owners all have a long and happy life together!

One year ago today, Shawnee gave birth to our "T" litter, sired by Cliff. Happy First Birthday to Titan, Tex, Troy, Tegan, Tawny, and Tugg! I would have loved to add a photo of them to this blog, but Blogger will not allow me to upload images today! Oh well, trust me, they were very cute!!

To the Chinese, 2010 was the Year of the Tiger, but at Bachbett Kennels it was the Year of the Puppy! Seventeen of them, to be exact, and so it is no surprise that my favorite photograph that I shot last year is an image of one of our puppies. Hope you like it, too!
I turned the original color photo into a black and white image, but kept the pink petunias and the eye color of the pup. Pups at this age have that bluish tinge to their eyes, and I think it is quite striking. What do you think?
Although the color version of this photo has been on our web site for some time, this is the first time I have published this B&W version.
