....the same procedure than every year....

today we went with the first group of our dogs to the European College of Vetenary  Ophtalmologist (EVCO)  for their CERF's.
So I have to say it was the first time for  Cointroau & Chambertin Sua Sponte, results clear/normal . Legends Hurricane a Solino's,  was tested last year and now again result clear/normal.  In the beginning of the new year we will test the others too.

We are of course, very proud of all the owners of our kids who are doing so well round the world but  it is with a very heavy heart and through tears that I send our deepest condolences to Natalja,who lost Solino's On White Socks "Summer " in a tragedy. Summer will live in our hearts forever and she is a shining Star above us! We and all her fans miss little Summer.  On a happier note, Summer's littermate "Tyrone" is full of energy  and nothing can stop him right now. He ended with BOB both days in Bratislava during the two day show there 15/16.08.09 . In Denmark "Kenzo" finished his Champion title and won best male there..................


Our last few weekends have had a really "international" flavour to them: first we spent a lovely time with our friend Jacqui from France, next we enjoyed the company of our friend Trude from the Netherlands and last but not least, all the way from Finland came Marika, Tiina, Anton & Luka. Please all come back very soon as it was such a pleasure to have you and it feels very quiet without you!



Well not all our news involves shows or show results - sometimes we prefer to stay at home with our lovely dogs and lovely friends. Last weekend our dear friend Jacqui from France came to visit for 5 days and, as always, we had a great time with her - she is one of our family - and she loves to eat German food! Then this weekend our good friend Trude from the Netherlands came to visit. We went on a great sight seeing tour of our fantastic home city, Berlin, with her and took some great photos which we will share in the Gallery. 
So 2 perfect weekends with 2 lovely dog friends !

In her famous book "Born to Win", Pat Trotter writes:

“ When you look at a dog's pedigree, it tells you what he OUGHT to be…
When you look at a dog in the ring, it tells you what he SEEMS to be…
When you look at a dog's progeny, it tells you what he IS.”
Rocky is a dog in a million - a great pedigree, fantastic looks and movement.............and just look at the stunning puppies he has produced. Whatever Crested girl Rocky is bred to - he produces consistent type: wonderful movement and excellent bodies.  I could not be more proud of his children across the world.  Enjoy!!
