Visiting Beth and Gentian's puppies

Yesterday was a great day to be outside, and we took a two-hour-drive to Poughkeepsie, NY to visit Beth and Gentian Shero and see their puppies. The scenery was a feast for the eyes. We could see the Catskill Mountains in the background but the foreground was dominated by the changing colors of leaves in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

The puppies were born on August 8, and they are seven and a half weeks old. Beth and Gentian have done excellent job documenting the pups' development and progress - you can access all the needed info at

The pups' sire is our FC Billy von Moosbach-Zuzelek, an accomplished blood tracker and producer.

Billy has a proven track record as a stud dog and has produced a lot of blood tracking and hunting puppies.
Mariel von Munterkeit is the pups' mom, and she comes from a line of great blood trackers.
Mariel's good looks match her personality; she is outgoing and friendly with people and dogs. She was at ease with us when we handled her pups.
We liked the pups very much. They are going to have good coats of dark wild boar color. They were calm and easy going, friendly and relaxed.

Mariel is just over two years old. She loves to play with her pups.

Beth and Gentian are working out of their home so puppies have been receiving a lot of attention. We were impressed how well socialized they are.
We had a great dinner prepared by Beth with Gentian's help. Good conversation and good wine...and the time flew. When we got back home it was 10 pm. Thank you Beth and Gentian for your hospitality! We had a great time.
Puppies will be leaving for new homes in a couple of weeks so probably we are not going to see them again. Two male puppies are still available to working homes. Those interested should contact Beth directly at
