Rommel and family~~Sunday Stills for 040509





































Rommel is our current German Shepherd. We purchased him from a breeder in Riverside. Turns out, he knew the breeder that we bought our first shepherd from, who also lived in Riverside 30 years ago. I've included some pics of "baby Rommel" in my front flower garden, along with a photo of his father. He looks more and more like "Caesar", his father, every year. The longer haired shepherd is his father. The bitch (top photo) is his mother. She had 6 puppies in that litter. Those puppies, like Rommel, are now 6 years old. It must have been a good pairing: he is the most calm and mellow shepherd of the three we've had. That's him in 2003 in the top photo. He's actually lighter and more light tan than either of his parents. Our first shepherd was black and tan and our second one was also black and tan, but darker. Sunday Stills for April 5, 2009.

  9. Rommel is a gorgeous dog. My parents raised German Shepherds back in the 50's. Our male was black and tan, and our female was silver and black....Wolfgang and Brunhilda!! Some of our pups were the first dogs on the Houston K9 corp.

  15. Like the first photo laying in the yard. The second to the last is good too. The pup looks like he is trying to hide behind that one blade of grass.
