My German Shepherd Katie
by Andrew Lin
19 mo Katie is a West German working line longhaired bicolour GSD. In addition to working as a hearing dog for my daughter, she is a fishing/hunting buddy for me and stays active with agility, PSA & Schutzhund bitework, hunting flushing/retrieving training as well as service related training (alert & touch on sound stimulus).
These pictures show her play bowing in a field of golden grass, looking out the window at traffic in Times Square and looking up at some birds in our back yard. She is truly a versatile GSD and being "all that she can be" traveling with us by plane, train, automobile and boat to places like Walt Disney World, hog and alligator hunting in Texas, Skiing in New Hampshire, Montreal, and fishing for tuna/swordfish 100 miles off the Jersey Shore at the Hudson Canyon and fishing for salmon in the Pulaski river in upstate NY.
She is equally comfortable camping/hiking, i.e. "roughing it", or taking in dinner and a movie with us at the local mall.
