Christmas Show at the Basset Club

Final show of the year was this weekend, where we attended the annual Christmas Show at the Danish Basset Club. We only brought Whiskey, and off course our oldest daughter Selma showed him as always – he is her dog. ;o) She has really developed a lot as a handler, and allthough there is off course plenty to learn, she is doing such a good job with Whiskey – and she is only 11 years old, so she has plenty of time to practice…not to mention plenty of dogs to practice with, as our pack now holds 8 dogs! ;oD Whiskey was entered in intermediate class and got a very nice critique (including a comment to Selma about the “very nice presentation”). Whiskey ended up as 2nd Best Male, and as the Best Male was already a champion, Whiskey received the CAC. ;o) He now has 2 CACs and he…

3-day Kennel Club Show

This weekend was the annual last show of the year in the Danish Kennel Club. Normally it is a 2-day show, but this year an extra day had been added as Denmark was hosting the Nordic Winner Show 2021. So, off we went for the full 3-day experience with our two adult DdB females, Vesper and Valka. Vesper was entered into Champion Class and Valka was in Junior Class (she is 15 months old). The weekend was a huge succes for our dogs, and they came home with the following results: North-End Bordeaux’s Akane “Vesper”: Friday Nov 12th 2021 – International Show (12 females entered): Best Female #1 with CACIB – BOS Saturday Nov 13th 2021 – Nordic Winner Show (14 females entered): Best Female #3 Sunday Nov 14th 2021 – Danish Winner Show (15 females entered): Best Female #2 Krondal’s Valka: Friday Nov 12th 2021 – International Show (12…

Puppies and show

Our PBGV litter will be 8 weeks on Tuesday and we have taken new pictures of the whole gang today – see them under the Our Breeding / U-litter menu. Also, all puppies have now been microchipped, which means they now have their pedigree name as follows: Krondal’s Uma (purple female) Krondal’s Upsy-Daisy (red female) Krondal’s Umberto (green male) Krondal’s Ultron (turquoise male) Krondal’s Uncas (brown male) Krondal’s Uno (black male) Krondal’s Uzo (blue male) This weekend was the annual Danish Dogue de Bordeaux Club Show, and Valka was entered in Junior Class (she is almost 13 months old). This was her first show and what a start! She won Junior Class and received a Junior CAC and went on to become 3rd best female (after two champions), which means she also received the CAC. On top of that she got the title Danish Dogue de Bordeaux Junior Winner 2021.…

DdB puppies and show results

It has been all about the dogs for the last 4 weeks since the PBGV puppies arrived, and nothing different this week with the arrival of our DdB puppies and a succesful show-day for Peter and Selma. ;o) Vesper’s puppies arrived on July 25th. We knew it would be a small litter – the scanning showed 3, perhaps 4 puppies. However, there were only 2 puppies left on the day of arrival – a male and a female. We had originally decided to keep a female, but after seeing the puppies and being very happy with them so far, we have decided to keep them both and see how they develop. So no puppies will be available from this litter, both will be staying with us for now. This weekend, Peter and Selma went to a DKK show with Whiskey and Humle. It went very well for them both –…

Back to normal

Everything is back to normal after the DdB puppies left in September – well, two of them left and the last one, Valka, stayed with us. ;o) Valka is developing just like a normal DdB puppy – long legs, long nose, big ears! I am sure she will grow into proportions again later on, but at this age most DdB puppies look funny, so she is developing fully according to plan… ;o) We are waiting for our PBGV female Carla to start her heat…nothing yet, but it should be just around the corner. We will breed her in her upcoming heat, more info on that will follow in our Planned Litters page shortly. All the PBGV youngsters (Peanut, Whiskey and Humle) are doing great and just enjoying life in the countryside, although we are a bit sad that we are not able to show them, as all shows are cancelled…

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…

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…
