Planned PBGV litters 2019 & Vesper show year 2018

In the beginning of the month, we attended the two last shows of the year with Vesper. First IDS in Herning and the weekend after, the Year End show with the Danish DdB Club. Vesper did well and was placed in the Best Female competition 3 out of 4 days, thereby receiving enough points to be awarded both “Junior Female of the Year 2018” and “Female of the Year 2018” at the Danish DdB Club – needless to say, we are very proud of our young girl, who is only 20 months old. ;o) We will now take a break from the showrings until February, when the next season kicks off. As to our PBGVs, we are planning on breeding both Carla and Penny in their next heat, which means we are expecting two litters in the beginning of 2019. We have chosen a male for Carla, but haven’t settled…

IDS Ballerup 22.-23. September 2018

Another show weekend, this time in Ballerup just outside of Copenhagen. Vesper and Penny were both entered, Vesper was in Intermediate class, as she has just turned 18 months, Penny was in open class. First up was Vesper on Saturday and she did very well. She ended up as Best Female and BOS, taking the CAC and CACIB as well as the title Copenhagen Winner 2018 – well done! ;o) Penny was at the show on Sunday, but sadly she dislikes showing just as much as Vesper and Carla enjoy it… In the past 6 months, Peter has put a lot of work into getting her to like the showring, and we did think that it had helped – but obviously training is one thing and “for real” is something else… Things were fine outside the ring – but as soon as Penny entered the ring, her tail dropped completely…

French dogue de bordeaux Clubmatch – Nationale d’Élevage

This year we decided to go to the French clubmatch for the dogue de bordeaux – the Nationale d’Élevage – with our junior female Vesper. Being the breed’s native country, the Nationale d’Élevage in France is a very special and unique show with dogs from all over Europe. The show was held in the city of Tilque at the Chateau de Tilque – an absolutely beautiful setting for the event, with the show rings situated on the lawns right in front of the castle. There were 110 entries in total, 13 entries in the junior female class alone – and Vesper had an amazing weekend ending up winning Best Junior Female! Needless to say, we are over the moon and so proud of her achievement! ;o) Peter unfortunately couldn’t be part of the trip, so Vesper was handled by her breeder, Kristine Schoubye, in the ring. Pictures below from our…

Vesper Danish Junior Champion & POAG results for the X-litter

On May 11, 12 and 13 the Danish Kennel Club had a 3-day show in Roskilde. We only showed Vesper, as Carla just had her puppies and Penny is not yet 2 years old and therefore don’t need more certificates until after her 2 year birthday. Vesper did very well and took the Junior CAC all three days – which means she became Junior Champion on the last day!! 😀 On top of that, she also managed to take the CAC two out of the three days – so she now only needs one CAC after her 2 year birthday to become Danish Champion. Needless to say, we were over the moon and very happy with her achievements! 😉 And more good news from Vesper – she has had her elbows x-rayed and received the official status: AD/0! So right now we can’t ask for more from her. 😀 Speaking…

New pictures of the X-litter puppies

We managed to get everybody on the table for a last photoshoot this weekend, so you can find new pictures of each puppy on the X-litter page. Time flies SO fast these days and by the end of the weekend, 6 of the 7 puppies will have left the house to move in with their new families. Xia will stay with us… ;o) The whole gang went for the vet check-up on Monday and at the same time, the vet took out DNA-material from each puppy to do the POAG test. Results will arrive from England in 2-3 weeks and will off course be posted on the X-litter page, as soon as we have them.

Busy weekend

The puppies have certainly met a lot of people this weekend! On Saturday 4 of the new puppy-families came to visit the gang, and on Sunday we celebrated our youngest daughter Sally’s 6th birthday with a birthday party of 12 girls! No doubt, the puppies enjoyed all the attention – but they were pretty tired by the end of the weekend… ;o) Below a few pictures from Sunday – and off course a little video of the puppies playing in the garden. All puppies have now been picked out by their families and all names have been put on the X-litter page. ;o)

More puppy-spam… ;o)

X-litter 6 weeks today – and they will be leaving in only 2 weeks!! Can’t believe how fast the time went… :-/ Below a video and a couple of pictures of the gang. And also we have updated the X-litter page with new pictures of everybody. We tried to do table-pictures this time, not the easiest job in the world(!) and the quality of the pictures could definitely be better, but hopefully it will give you an idea of each puppy. ;o)
