We brought Bondi home today. It was a nice drive home from WA. We're excited for the next chapter to begin. Recently, at Northwest Cherry Fest in Salem, she did great, and Bondi had many admirers there; people were lined up to meet her & were gushing over her all night.
Thank you, Tina & Larry, for our beautiful girl.

Dear Tina and Larry,
I just wanted to let you both know how much we all enjoyed our visit on Saturday. Thank you so much for taking so much time to spend with us. It was a pleasure to meet you Tina and to meet your beautiful German Shepherds. We took Paige and Mark back to the airport today but they wanted to make sure to say a big thank you to both of you as well. They (we all) absolutely loved the dogs and so appreciate all the hard work you have put into them and your breeding program. Either Paige or I will be in touch regarding future breeding's and we will be watching your website for updates. They are at least 6 months to 1 year away from adding a German shepherd to their family but when they are ready, it will definitely be from your kennel.
I really hope we see you again soon and Jerry will be at the show. I realized I have a trip to California that weekend. So disappointed.
Sincerely, Kim and Jerry D. Paige and Mark M.
I wanted to thank you, not only for being there for me when I called with questions about Sky but also for choosing her for me in the first place. She is such a wonderful creature. She loves truck rides and her new swimming pool although she doesn't lay down in it unless it's empty. She is such a silly girl and looks so much like JJ except her red areas are a bit more brindle like her mama, Hilda. She follows Craig everywhere and he just loves her so very much. I don't know how you choose this particular pup for us but we couldn't be happier & I think she feels the same.
You can sure tell she is JJ's kid.
Thank you Tina, Nita Craig & Echowoods Sky of Chinook Valley Farm
I wanted to send you a message to thank you for meeting with us this weekend. You have a wonderful farm and beautiful dogs, and we had a wonderful time getting to know you. Our girls were so excited, Charlotte keeps talking about the doggies and Ava has never been that excited before; it was so good to see how happy they were. We look forward to talking with you more, and we're even more excited to welcome one of your puppies into our home. I think my husband Rob is just as excited as the girls. If you have any further questions for us, please feel free to ask. Thank you again, you truly made our weekend a special one.
Hi, Friends & Family of Merlin,
Merlin will be 9 years old October 20th, and this summer he has proved that you can teach an older dog new tricks. Nearly from the beginning, he showed little interest in the goats on our homestead, though he has always dearly loved the chickens and the ducks, once we added them. He will spend hours outside the chicken run or the duck run or even in the pasture with the 2nd flock, staring at them through the fence or just resting while they eat and play.
The poultry came up to the fence to check him out and sometimes noses/beaks/bills tough through the fence. In the pasture, the young ones climb on him and he seems to like it. If any of them get outside the fence, he's been quite good with helping corner them and get them back inside, though sometimes he has forgotten how to do this and shown great frustration with the whole business.
This spring, he began showing an interest in tagging along as the goats were taken from the barn down to the pasture. Long story short - he now herds them every day, twice a day, down to the pasture in the afternoon and back to the barn at night. He's gotten very good at it and wouldn't miss it for the world. And, the pride he's experienced in remembering this skill, born into him from his working parents as the breed itself, is beautiful to watch. Tail high, like a flag, eyes bright, and a big grin on his face. He still helps with the chickens. Now he has 2 sets of duties and has never been happier. With all this added actual herding, he seems to less obsessed with strangers, more tolerant about 'his space'. And, he has begun to bark when a car or truck starts up the driveway that is not the neighbors' - a watchdog characteristic I had hoped he'd have but never displayed before. Thank you, Tina and Lisa for giving him lots of love as a puppy. Thank you, Tine, for your excellent training (of us); it has borne fruit over the years beyond expectation. Just wanted you all to know!
With love, Caren, Christopher & Merlin
I wanted to thank you for the visit to your kennel. Dave and I really loved your dogs, and we appreciated your willingness to spend time with us. I have mailed the puppy contract and deposit. I will watch your website for updates. One quick question...are all of Hilde's puppies reserved at this? You probably don't even know how many she is carrying...or maybe you do. We were quite taken with her! :) We are still waiting to find out our schedule so we can plan the best time for us to get a puppy, but we should know in the next 3 weeks.
Thanks again, Kathy B.
Hope all is well. I posted my short testimonial (below) on your facebook. I will send my testimonial for the beach shortly. Delta knows her"come, sit, down, and stay"command very well now. thank you for such a wonderful companion. When I picked up my German Shepherd puppy from Chinook Valley Farm on June 5/6 2015, I was very impressed. the litter box was immaculately clean. Tine (the breeder) is very knowledgeable and so easy to deal with. Although she has been breeding German Shepherds since 1978 and has a vast knowledge and insight on German Shepherds, she is very honest when she is not familiar with a certain question and will give you a straight answer. I believe that her unparalleled knowledge of German Shepherds and sincere honesty are traits that separate her apart from other breeders. I will surely come back to Chinook Valley Farm for another GSD puppy. When we picked-up our GSD puppy. When we picked-up our GSD from Chinook Valley Farm we received a complimentary stay at Cedars Ocean View Inn. The staff was excellent: very courteous and efficient. The room is so clean and the view from our window of the ocean was magnificent. The manager is very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Cedars Ocean View to anybody who is planning to visit Long Beach.
