Planned litter of DdB

We are very happy to announce that we have a planned litter of Dogue de Bordeauxs at the end of the year. :o) We have chosen to breed our female North-End Bordeaux’s Akane “Vesper” to a lovely male from Italy, Herry Dogue Del Monticano. See the entire pedigree for the upcoming litter in our Planned Litter section, where you can also find pictures of the ancestors as well as all available HD and AA results in the pedigree.

Planned PBGV litter

Carla went into heat on May 26th so hopefully a litter of PBGVs is on it’s way… ;o) We will be doing the first progesterone-test on Carla on Monday to determine the right time for breeding her. And hopefully before the end of next week she will be mated to the wonderful Petit Heroes Canned Heat “Otto”. If everything goes well, puppies will arrive in the beginning of August. ;o) You can find the pedigree for the litter here.

NEW champion

Vesper was entered to the 3-day show in Roskilde this weekend, and we were hoping to achieve a certificate, which would make her Danish Champion, now that she has turned 2 years old. The show went far better than we could have hoped for, and Vesper ended up as not only Best Female but also BOB both Friday and Saturday! ;o) On Sunday she was 2nd Best Female and after the weekend she is now both DANISH CHAMPION and SWEDISH CHAMPION (via the certificate she got in Malmö in March). We off course brought Carla along to the show area as well, even though she wasn’t entered in the show – but she loves coming along and enjoyed herself meeting other dogs and playing and relaxing with the children. ;o) After 3 days of showing, Vesper was tired when we came home on Sunday. ;o)

Vesper show Malmö and modeling for REDGREEN menswear ;o)

Vesper has been in the spotlight the past couple of weeks. ;o) First, we took her to IDS in Malmö on March 30th, were she went all the way in the DdB ring, ending up as Best Female and BOB with Swedish CAC and CACIB. She now has 1 CACIB from Denmark, 1 CACIB from Germany and 1 CACIB from Sweden, and she just turned 2 years in March. So we are hoping and crossing our fingers that 2019 will bring some titles for her. <3 Furthermore, Vesper has been used by the Danish brand REDGREEN modeling for their Summer/Spring 2019 menswear collection alongside Danish model and windsurfer celebrity Jesper Vesterstrøm. The REDGREEN team were so happy with the result that Vesper was invited to join the Autumn/Winter 2019 photoshoot last week as well and once again joined up with Jesper Vesterstrøm. So you’ll be seeing more of Vesper&Jesper throughout…

No puppies and loosing Penny… :-(

This is an absolutely heartbreaking post to write… 🙁 As we wrote previously, both Carla and Penny were bred in December and we went for a pregnancy scan Thursday last week. Carla was empty, no puppies to be found in her. However, the vet found 3 puppies in Penny – but unfortunately also found, that her kidneys looked very wrong… She took out a bloodtest and recommended that we saw a specialist as soon as possible. We got the results from the bloodtest on Monday – and the kidney figures were EXTREMELY high. We saw the specialist on Tuesday, who told us that this was indeed very serious – Penny only had about 5% of her kidney function left. ☹ However, Penny still looked okay on Tuesday…a little tired, but that could very well just be because of the puppies, and she didn’t seem to be sick from looking at…

Planned PBGV litters in February 2019

First of all – happy new year to everyone! :o) We had quite a busy December the last week before christmas, as both our PBGV females Penny and Carla went into heat only a few days apart and both females were ready for breeding the week before christmas! Luckily, according to the progesteron tests, they were due 3 days apart, so we managed to breed both females at the (hopefully!) right time. So, Peter started out with a trip to Oslo with Penny to meet with the gorgeous Trevor (Taglines Double The Fun with Soletrader) – and two days later he went to Langeland (Denmark!) with Carla for her rendevouz with Otto (Petit Heroes Canned Heat). Now, there is nothing left to do but keeping our fingers crossed that the breedings were succesful…we will know sometime in January, when we will be scanning Penny and Carla. If all goes well,…

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…
