Little Valentino becomes our Alpen Schatzi

A few months after Schlappi's departure, little Valentino enter's our life. He is from Stacy Temple's Wagontale kennel in Fort Collins, CO. He actually has many Schlappi-like features and we can hardly wait to bring him home! He will come home to us on Feb 11. He is a little bundle of fuzziness and joy and will fill our hearts and the void that Schlappi's departure left in us.

New York Stock Exchange Ring Alpen Schatz Cow Bells!

Every January, the New York Stock Exchange attends the World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland. Every year for the past 5 years, they have ordered 40-50 Alpen Schatz Cow Bells to ring at the opening ceremonies. Our biggest cow bell order per year and another example of what the bells can be used for!

In Loving Memory...ODE to SCHLAPPI

On November 6, 2008, our most loving, dearest dog and inspiration for the birth of Alpen Schatz passed away from a terrible form of Liver Cancer. Our dear Schlappi was hardly 7 and a half years old. Much too young to die.

As part of our love for him and to help ourselves through the grieving process, I began composing this Ode to him before he died, completing it after he had gone across the Rainbow Bridge to doggie heaven. Here's to you, our dear, dear Schlappi who was loved not only by us, but by thousands of Alpen Schatz visitors over the years. XXX to you!
