Four years ago today we brought home Ms. Elke. Elke is a purebred German Shepherd who we got from a breeder by Des Moines. We didn't know at the time, but Elke is a long haired German Shepherd. I love her crazy hair! Honestly we couldn't ask for a better dog, our family wouldn't be the same without her. Sometimes she gets a little crazy obsessive about her rope/frisbee/ball, but it's a great form of exercise for her! We love you Elke!
