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.

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…

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…

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…

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…

Dansk Kennel Klub show, Fredericia 13.02.2016


Carla (Around Yes Powerdrop) went to her first show on February 13th 2016, just a few days after she turned 6 months, and she was entered in puppy class. She did very well and we are very content – below is her critique:

Critique: typical head, feminine expression, front needs to improve, well balanced silhuet, correct topline, a bit soft puppy coat, correct movement from any angel. Placing 1st, SL and BIK
