Carla’s belly & happy birthday Vesper

Carla now only has one week left of her pregnancy and her belly is now quite obvious, to say the least! She has certainly slowed down her tempo, and she has given up on chasing the birds in our field – Penny has to do the job alone now. ;o) Carla is doing good and doesn’t seem to be too bothered with the growing belly – and she still enjoys flatting out in the couch in the evening… ;o) Today is Vesper’s 1st birthday. We are so very happy with our big girl and she is everything we could have hoped for – and then some! ;o)

Circle of life

We have had a rather bitter-sweet weekend… We did a pregnancy scan on Carla last week and luckily the trip to Holland was a succes. Carla is expecting puppies and the vet has set the due date at March 11th – needless to say we are very excited!! This will be our first litter in 10 years, the first litter of puppies our children will experience and our very first litter of PBGVs – so this is truly huge for us in many ways! ;o) Sadly the good news of Carla’s puppies was overshadowed Sunday evening, when we had to say goodbye to our English Bulldog Jelly… Jelly had had some bloody discharge during the day but suddenly started bleeding heavily in the evening. We took her to the vet immediately after and the vet found that she had a bad case of pyometra (:livmoderbetændelse) and the only solution would…

DDDBK Show 18.11.2017 and ECVO eye test of the PBGVs

The last show of the year for us was the Danish Dogue de Bordeaux Club Christmas show on November 18th. North-End Bordeauxs Akane “Vesper” was entered in Puppy class at 8 months of age and did very well. She was awarded Best Puppy out of a total of 6 puppies, so we ended the show year in the best possible way. ;o) We think she is developing very nicely, still looking really harmonic and well put together, and we are looking very much forward to showing her next year, when she will be a Junior. As to the PBGVs, our two girls Around Yes Powerdrop “Carla” and Soletrader Penny Lane “Penny” went for an ECVO eye test last week. Carla is POAG clear and Penny is POAG carrier, however we wanted to do the ECVO test as well to check for other potential eye conditions. Both dogs got perfect tests…

This weekend was the Danish Kennel Club Copenhagen Winner Show and we had entered PBGV Around Yes Powerdrop “Carla” and DDB North-End Bordeauxs Akane “Vesper”.

BOB was Taglines Double The Fun with Soletrader. Vesper was showing on Sunday in Puppy Class. She too did very well and ended up as BOB Puppy. Obviously we are very excited and happy with the results this weekend. ;oD

Planned PBGV litter and Vesper growing up

Our latest addition to the kennel – North End Bordeaux Akane “Vesper” – is growing up fast and turns 5 months tomorrow. She is developing very nicely, although at this age most DdBs look slightly funny with big ears, big feet and no body – but for her breed, she is developing according to plan. ;o) New pictures of Vesper in her gallery. As to the PBGVs we are expecting our first litter in the spring of 2018! We will be breeding Around Yes Powerdrop “Carla” in her next heat, which we expect will be in Dec17/Jan18 and the puppies will arrive in Feb/Mar 2018 if all goes well.

Penny shows & a new dog ;-)

Since our last update, Soletrader Penny Lane has been shown three times in junior class – and has achieved three CACs and one BOB! We are very happy with the way she has developed, she looks absolutely gorgeous and we love her type. Her biggest challenge is the fact, that she doesn’t like showing that much… :-/ Hopefully the anxiety has to do with her age and her second heat and we hope in time (and with a lot of socialization) it will better. Also – we have a new addition to the kennel. 🙂 We lost Yolene – our last Dogue de Bordeaux – late February. Ironically enough, the day before Yolene’s injury, we had decided to get in touch with Kristine Schoubye from Kennel North-End Bordeauxs, as she had an upcoming litter, that we very much wanted to have a female puppy from. The litter was born a…

Show weekend 11.02.2017 & 12.02.2017

Carla and Penny were both entered in shows on February 11 and 12. Saturday was the Basset Club show in Vonge and Sunday the Kennel Club show in Fredericia. It was the show debut for Penny in the puppy class and we were very excited to see how she performed in the ring – and she did well. ;o) She went BIS Puppy on Saturday in the Basset Club. And she continued her success on Sunday at the Kennel Club show, where the judge “shortlisted” her in his book in a big group of 30-40 puppies, but unfortunately she wasn’t picked out for the Top 4. However, she did us very proud! ;o) Carla did very well at the Basset Club show and went Best Bitch and BOS, thereby achieving her second CAC. ;o) Sunday wasn’t as good for her and she only got Excellent but without a CK. But…

Happy New Year and new photos

Happy New Year to all! ;o) We (Peter, that is) has spent the last few months fencing our entire field and has now turned it into a HUGE pen to walk the dogs! Carla and Penny are both very excited, as they now get to run without leashes – something that obviously was completely impossible with PBGVs before the fence came up! It’s a joy for all of us – humans and dogs – to be able to walk with the pack without leashes…which was in fact the main reason for moving out here to the countryside in the first place. And it has been very easy so far with Dogue de Bordeauxs and an English Bulldog, who never ran very far away and could always be called back….however, that all changed when the PBGVs moved in! So, we cancelled the lease contract on our field, that has been let…

New dog and Copenhagen Winner 2016

Since our last update we have added another female PBGV to our kennel – Soletrader Penny Lane. ;o) We picked up Penny a couple of weeks ago, she is now 4 months old and looking very promising. The other dogs have all been absolutely great and it has been so easy bringing Penny into the pack! Carla has certainly been missing a younger dog to play with, and she and Penny very quickly became best friends. :o) Our two old girls – Yolene (Dogue de bordeaux) and Jelly (English bulldog), both 8 years – are also thrilled about Penny’s arival…as Carla now leaves them alone and they can finally have som peace and quiet…;o)    As for shows it has been very quiet during the summer, but we went to the Int. Dogshow in Ballerup this weekend with Carla. We brought Penny too off course, but only for the experience, she wasn’t entered – and once…
