True Story from Karen's husband. While Karen has been helping our son with Rottweiler breeding for many years, I was not so involved. Karen decided to get me a puppy to improve my attitude about Rottweilers. She got me a male puppy for my birthday. Sent from Frankfort Airport to Waco Georgia in his mother Anna's belly. He was son of Gill Von Hause Millspeed. European champion over and over for years, now deseasd. A real Stud for the breeding program Karen and our Son who went to Arkansas giving her the Rottweilers. We named him Frieden. Frieden lived with us in the house instead of the kennel, still does. I fell in love with Frieden and was changing how I felt about Rotts in general. Frieden felt that love and so loved me back. Frieden will be 6 yrs. in April, and that love to which Rottweilers are suscessable, is spread throughout the kennel. Now we have Rebekah, Frieden;s daughter out of Stormy living in the house too. Not just in the house but where ever she can be with me. She is like velcro and burs, Oh how I love her. Stormy had 4 girls in her first litter, Becky, as I call her, was 1 of them. One of the girls was stillborn, I delivered all 12 puppies of Stormy's litter. The stillborn girl I gave to Stormy so shen would know it was dead. She rolled it and licked it and quit. I picked the puppy up and gove it chest compressions and blew into it's mouth for about 5 mins. when it gagged alittle. Stormy cocked her head sideways and looked at me astonished. I continued for about 30 seconds then laid it where she could take over and she did. Stormy had little milk and about day 3 we bottle fed the puppies twice a day at first. By 3 weeks Becky was pacing the pen and cying when she heard me in the garage where she was born. By 4 weeks she was jumpping over the barier we had to contain the puppies when pan feeding, but she quit crying all the time. I pucked her up everytime and carried her with me as I went. Spoiled is all I can say, and climbs the 6 ft. pen built just for her. But what a lover. A man stopped in for a puppy headed home to Fl. Before he left he had kissed Becky an the mouth at least 10 times at our kitchen table. I was shocked. And when a family came for a puppy one cold and late day, The little girl with them about 8 yrs old was rolling on the floor while the paper work was being done, all wrapped up arm in arm Becky. Again I was shocked. Becky will be 2 yrs in Feb.2015. She is pregnant for the 2nd time now. First time she just climbed in with Agent Gibbs our other Very nice Stud from the Wasco Akino line. Really good Bloodline. Becky is a love of my life with Karen be first and #1, since she was 8yrs. old and I was 12. God has blessed us as life went. That love is now in all the Rotts as well. Because it goes from one to another, and what you sow you reap. I will be helping Karen with the kennel even here on the web, but this is all new to me since 9-11, but I am sure you won't find better Rotts, and with Sargent Gunner, our newest stud from Millspeed Kennels who is 6mths now, to take over with Agent Gibbs girls we keep, the Rotts will be Supper for many more years.
