A Tribute to Otto

Unfortunately the dynamics of my little pack was shattered on March 1, 2004 when my male Aladin vom Tal der Raben (Otto) was tragically struck and killed by a car.

He was a wonderful dog, a fine specimen of a Eurasier, so self-confident and elegant, with such a gentle, calm temperament. He was so full of life, happy to be anywhere with his girls and me. I never had to worry about him, since he had always been a self-controlled male. He wore the highest honor in the American Rare Breed Association "Master Champion" and he moved with such ease in the Show ring.

Although I only had him for 5.5 short years, I feel blessed to have had him at all. He was such a special dog, my first male; he is surely missed by many. The one comfort I will always have with his death, is he has sired 29 puppies and a few of them will be bred, to carry on his wonderful genes.

A true Eurasier in every sense, I was so proud to have owned him. Rest in peace Otto, life will never be the same without you.

Thanks to Dr. Kurt Kotrschal and his wife Rose Marie for raising such a wonderful puppy and for Otto's parents Briska vom Heiligkreuz and Dusty vom Lippedamm for having him.
