happy 3rd birthday marwind

I could still remember the day i got Marwind from the breeder. Looking at 6 pups, he was the one who approached me and i fell in love instantly. I immediately held him in my arms to know if he would really bond with me and he settled in right away and did not have any resistance at all. That’s when i knew that Marwind is the one.

Details on his certificate are: sire Meghana’s Lifeline Jasper; dam Dora Von Der Nacht – daughter of PH Champ Ebby Z. Milabru. Marwind is a grandson of a Philippine Champ.

We used to take Marwind at the mall quite often when he was just a puppy. He instantly attracted so many stares and petting because of his cuteness.

Now that he’s an adult and has grown so big, he still gets a lot of attention whenever we take him out and because of his size and good looks i always hear people say “ang laki” (so big). Taking him on car rides gets him lots of stares and admiration too with that big face sticking out of the window.

As a guard dog, he is fierce, territorial and very loyal. He has a deep and loud bark that sounds so intimidating. He barks at anyone approaching or near our gate. But, whenever he is out of his own territory which is our home, Marwind is a very cool dog and he could be petted by anyone. He is calm and comfortable when at the vet and unmindful of the barkings of other dogs. He doesn’t mind being handled during routinary check ups like opening his mouth, checking his teeth, checking his ears and body, etc. He is just one cool dog outside of his realm. Also, he is very protective of me that sometimes even to the point of not letting my other dog Rafraf be near me.

Marwind loves ice. I give them as treats. He also enjoys playing with water.

Happy 3rd birthday Marwind of Gershephund. You deserved all my overflowing love and care.

the whole world is celebrating my birthday

Hello dear friends. I am STAR and today is my 5th birthday. Mommy says i’m so lucky being born December 31 as there is always lots of food for the family to share during New Year’s Eve. Just imagine, the whole world is also celebrating with me complete with fireworks. How awesome is that. Tomorrow is a brand new day of a brand new year. My wish is an unlimited supply of hugs and kisses from mommy. I could never wish for anything more because i have been so lucky to have a home with lots and lots of food, treats and toys. I hope that more kitties would also find their forever home.

We also celebrated yesterday because it was the 2nd birthday of mommy’s big boy MARWIND. Yep, he is huge but still very much a puppy at heart. Mommy gave him big hugs and kisses too.

Wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Love… STAR. 

As i write this, 2016 will soon come to a close. There are many happy memories to cherish but there are lonely ones too like the loss of a loved one, a missing cat and other personal problems. But… i couldn’t miss out in celebrating the end of the year and the welcoming of a new year. A new year means new hopes. We are all HOPEFUL that the new year will shower us with more blessings and fulfillment of our dreams.

From my family to yours, HAPPY NEW YEAR. Peace, Love and Happiness to all.

Marwind of Gershephund is actually the full real name of my German Shepherd dog. I got him from the breeder at 2 months old. On his certificate, he is registered as black and tan; sire Meghana’s Lifeline Jasper; dam Dora Von Der Nacht – daughter of PH Champ Ebby Z. Milabru. That means that Marwind is the grandson of a Philippine Champ. How cool is that.

The DARKNESS of his coat is very visible during his puppy days and as months passed, his coat slowly turns lighter and these days he is now sporting the black and tan coat.

Above first photo is when he’s 3 months old, the second photo he’s 7 months and the third photo was just taken recently and he’s now 1 and a half years old. He (together with my rescued local dog Rafraf) is the culprit behind my destroyed potted plants. But it’s okay because i love him to bits and i guess the plants are nothing compared to his job of protecting us and guarding our home.

Marwind’s face looks naughty as compared to my previous German Shepherd JOHNNY VON KELLY. Johnny looked like a real gentleman. Oh i surely miss him.

I was feeling lazy today maybe because of the gloomy weather. How i wish i could cuddle with Ashton as he lay beside my laptop as i was typing this.

I played with Ashton’s paw in between my blogging and i thought his black beanies are cute.
