Puppy updateDecember 29, 2012
It have been a while ago since the last up-date and Dizzy has grown much. She is getting it very heavy now because of it's the last week but it all goes well. She is since a while getting used to the whelping box and that's going very well. We have placed some pictures of her on the litter-page.
Dizzy is expectingDecember 05, 2012
Saturday November 24, the biggest dog show in the Netherlands
had taken place, the Winner in Amsterdam. We had entered Nicky and Zeus. Also Raff (Social Giant Thunder) and Bruno (Social Giant Miracle Star) participated. Bruno was the first one of this four and he did a wonderful job. Besides he was by far the youngest and it was his first time, he became 3th out of the 11 entries in the youth class! Nicky had 9 opponents and was also doing great, she became 5th and just narrowly wasn't placed. Zeus was even enthusiastic as always and received also nice 3th place. And also Raff became 3th in a very heavy champion class. We're very proud on all our stunning boys and ladies!

We're expecting a litter in the first half of January 2013 out of the beautiful combination of Dizzy and Raff (Social Giant Thunder)!

General updateOctober 22, 2012
The last up-date has been a while ago because we didn't enter for shows the last month. We will go again in November to the Winner in Amsterdam. The biggest show in the year were we're looking forward to. In the mean time we continue training but of course there is also lots of time for playing, cuddling and sleeping. Nicky and Princess are growing fast and therefore we have placed new pictures of them. Further our vet has made x-rays of Zeus his hips and elbows because he had reached the age of 18 months. His elbows were nice but we think his hips aren't good enough to use him later in our breeding program. Besides we think it's very sad he don't have to have any bother to this because of his good condition and muzzles. He also of course stays living with Jan and Alie where he likes it very much.
Raff won BOBSeptember 11, 2012
The past weeks we made a few trips with the dogs. One of the things we did was going to the lake in our neighbourhood where we have made some pictures. All dogs enjoyed it very much as you can see on the pictures. On Sunday September 2nd we have participated with the puppydag in Waalwijk. It's a very funny day were dogs till 1 year old are meeting with the show ring. The puppyday is a race with multiple rounds were the last dog will be refused, with in each round different judges. Totally there were 8 rounds and Nicky and Princess have both doing a good job and came to the 5th round! Brothers Bruno and Diego take also a visit and it was for Nicky and Princess, and of course also for us, very nice to see them again. Besides that Raff (Social Giant Thunder) was for a show in Luxembourg and came home with beautiful results. He became best male and BOB (Best of Breed). In the ring of honour he won the big group 2 (BIG) and at last but certainly not least he became 3th Best in Show (3BIS)!! A wonderful result, were we like to congratulate owner Niek Bolle with. We're very proud on them.
DiegoJuly 30, 2012
We have had a visit of the Family Henderson and decided that Diego is going to live there. Meanwhile he is moved to his new home and everything is going fine. We and the other dogs (particular his sisters Nicky and Princess) are missing him but we're confident that he is going to have a good live with them.
Good bye LightningJuly 03, 2012
With great sadness we have to inform you that we suddenly lost our sweetest Lightning. After throwing up a couple times she was going fast backwards. We went immediately to the vet but because of the shock she was in her hart stopped during the operation. We're completely devastated of this loss and are missing our teddy bear very very much! She will always have a place in our hearts and we will never forget her!
Dizzy does agilityJune 28, 2012
A while ago we started with agility for Dizzy. Because of the high energy level she has we think it was nice for her to be active at this way. And indeed, she thinks it is a big success. With much pleasure she goes training every week and is doing this very well! She quickly picks up all the commands and is flying over the parcour. Further we were informed that Diva passed away on June 27th. Diva is the mother of our Pam and so founder of the bloodlines of our kennel. We want to thank the family Teijsse for taking good care of Diva and wishing there all the best for the coming period. We had entered Nicky (Social Giant Twinkling Star) for the dog show in Uden on June 24th. For the first time she was showing in the baby class. She did very well for a first time and was honoured with a Very Promising on the 2nd place. Raff was going with an excellent result homewards after this rainy day. After he became 1th Excellent in the open class he became successively Best Male (BOS), Best of Breed (BOB) and 2nd Best of Group (2nd BIG) in the ring of honour. With this fabulous result he has his championpoints and with much pride we can inform you that Raff has now became Dutch Champion!! We want to congratulate Niek Bolle with this fantastic result and thank him for the hard work he did with his beautiful boy Raff!
