Life and times of Frida vom Erthal (aka Erna): Her development from Puppy to present: She came to us from Germany as a small puppy, from the kindness and Kennel of Dr. Christhof Kuhnlein (v. Erthal): she has been a marvellous Drahthaar Versatile Hunting Dog: VJP 62, HZP 188, HN, HD Free, vWD Free (by DNA) Breed show evaluation at 11/11 Form and Hair:ZR# 225/06. Erna has a flawless temperament combined with perfect health. Her desire to hunt knows no limit. Her attitude with other dogs is always peaceful. Her love for people is evident in every meeting. She definitely puts her stamp on her puppies. She has made her Breed contributions through some very fine puppies,  when selectively bred to different sires: She was retired from breeding at age 7. I am fortunate to have a first, second and third generation from this wonderful Deutsch Drahthaar.  Erna started her home life with me and my family as a puppy and without question became the adult I hoped she would be:  she had a great life:  travelled a lot,  hunted a lot,  and loved all the family with every ounce of affection she had:  when anyone looked at Erna in passing,  for sure,  they felt the need to take a second look as she was an eye catcher:   She passed away after a short illness,  due to natural causes,  on Nov 4 2017:  a sad day for me and my family:  she will be missed immensely by all of us:  She lived her life well here on Earth and left behind a legacy to be proud of.  Rest in Peace my dear old girl.
