1980 Register of Merit Dam

"Rosemary has done it all.  Championship, Grand Victrix and now ROM.  Her first breeding was to Ch. Amber's Gilli of Will-Ve's, a Ch. Lakeside's Gilligan Island ROM son, making this an inbreeding, for Rosemary's sire is Gilligan's full brother.  This breeding produced a Champion son.  

Her next breeding was to Cobert's Sirocco of Windigail, a Ch. Cobert's Reno of Lakeside son out of Ch. Cobert's Windsong ROM.  Windsong was a daughter of Ch. Cobert's Golly Gee of Lakeside ROM out of GV Ch. Scorpio of Shiloh Gardens ROM.  We now have intense in-breeding on the Lance-Melissa lines as Harrigan, Reno and Golly Gee are brothers and sister.  The result was highly successful with two Champion progeny, one almost finished in 1980 and still another winning son.  Rosemary was also bred to Covy's Flannigan of Tucker Hill, who is a Ch. Lakeside's Gilligan Island son out of the great producing dam Ch. Kovaya's Contessa ROM.  It is again line-breeding on Lance-Melissa as well as on Bernd."

1984 Red Book

"Rosemary is such a joy to live with. Daily we gaze lovingly at her beauty and elegance and can't imagine life without her. She is a once in a lifetime dream come true and we are so grateful for all the things she has done for us.

Rosemary made a disguised appearance (wearing a red doggie vest) at the 1984 National in Phoenix just two weeks after a serious tortion operation at close to 12 years of age... the first dog in history to wear clothes at a show and get away with it.

I think it is evident that Rosemary has put a stamp of quality and elegance on the breed and has helped through her son, Manhattan, to put German Shepherd Dogs back in a prominent place of reverence and admiration at the All Breed Shows nationwide. But to me dreaming my lifetime memories of Rosemary will always be first of a loved personality who has always been there for me, not just when she gaited her heart out to Grand Victrix and produced for me in the whelping box, but as a friend I could count on daily, understanding my thoughts and moods and always catching the feelings behind my words. We have spoken the same language together and I cherish the time we spent together."
