Happy HolidaysDecember 25, 2014
We enjoyed a lovely weekend trip with some of our dogs. It was a hassle to arrange good accommodation for all our dogs but it was successful. We wish everybody nice holidays and a good 2015!
The Winnershow AmsterdamDecember 16, 2014
Last Saturday the Winnershow in Amsterdam had taken place, Netherlands biggest show. We had entered Pam and she did again a great job! Pam became best veteran of the breed and gained the title Veteranwinster 2014! Also she gained her point for the Dutch Veteran Champion! Now Pam is Benelux Veteran Winster 2014, Veteran Winster 2014 and Dutch Veteran Champion!! We are very proud on this lady which is very happy and is going very easy through the ring on her age!
Joelle is x-rayedNovember 26, 2014
Our girl Joelle has been x-rayed because she reached the age of 18 months and the official outcome appears to be very good news! Joelle is HD A and ED 0 registered, we cannot wish for better results! At this time she still is very youthful and therefore we wait before she can have her own litter.
Pam is Best Veteran!September 30, 2014
On September 27 we went to a dog show in Maastricht with our girl Pam. She did again a great job and that was rewarded with an excellent and she also became Best Veteran! We also added the offspring page of our latest litter of Snowy and Jethro. We hope we can up-date this page regular with new pictures. Finally we want to advice everybody, especially with young dogs, to start with training for the firework on December 31 so they are familiar with the sound and don't have to be afraid.
Social Giant walkSeptember 26, 2014
On September 21 we organised the Social Giant walk. We were delighted to cuddle with all the Social Giant puppies from the past, to see them play and to make a nice walk with them! We want to thank everybody for being there and for the nice afternoon. You can find pictures of this nice walk on the page of Social Giant days.
Puppies went to their new homesSeptember 16, 2014
At this time the 6 puppies have left to their new owners. It's always hard to say goodbye but luckily we receive regular pictures and messages and it is very nice to see all of the puppies have found a good home! We kept a male and female our self from this combination and we are proud to introduce; Hero and Shadow. We have made them their own page so everybody can follow them. The pictures of the last days and of the puppies with their new owners are on the litter page.
Pam is Benelux Veteran Winner 2014!September 11, 2014
The last days of the puppies in our home are there, most of the puppies will leave our home this weekend. For the new owners something to look forward to, for us is the time to say goodbye every day a little closer. Also this week we were very active with the puppies. The most of the times they are loose in the living room and after a little while they are falling in sleep so you can find sleeping puppies everywhere. We also walked regular on the leash with the puppies and they are doing it very well! Further they are playing very much and they also have been carefully in a little bit of water. New pictures and this time a short movie are on the litter page. On September 6 we went with our Veteran Pam to Rotterdam to participate a show. It's an honour to show our veteran in such a good condition. She became best veteran and has now the title Benelux Veteran Winner 2014! We are very proud on our lady!
Puppy updateSeptember 03, 2014
The puppies were often outside the past week. Now its nice sunny weather they like to play outside and also inside. Because we noticed Snowy don't like it any more when the puppies are drinking she wears a t-shirt sometimes to cover her nipples cause she really enjoys being with the puppies and sleeping by them. Snowy doesn't mind and she get the message that it's possible with t-shirt to be with her puppies. However sometimes they sometimes still try to drink. Many new pictures and a new movie are on the litter page.
Puppy updateAugust 28, 2014
At this point the puppies are passed the age of 6 weeks and that means a lot of changes. The puppies are vaccinated and checked by our vet this past week and all are declared healthy! Also the chipper has visited and that means that the pedigree names are coupled to the puppies. Further we are very busy with potty training and we have to say that's there are doing very well. As soon as they are awake they go all outside and because the door is almost always open, besides when it's raining very hard, they are regular outside to pee or to play. Of course they have regular some accidents but we try to stimulate it as best as we can. We are also very busy with socialising with noises and objects. Bottles, bottles with rattles, clattering food bowls, brooms all kind of things have been passed already. Today they are even have had their first walk on a leash on the street and however most puppies where impressed in the beginning of the cars most of them recovered quickly and walked, with the necessary breaks to look around, well with us. Enough reasons for many new pictures and a new movie!
Puppy updateAugust 20, 2014
Regular the puppies are (besides the couple times a day they are in the living room) outside for a bit but if it's too fresh they are growing inside fast cause there is also enough to play and demolish. We also went this week with Snowy to the forest for some extra distraction, besides the regular walks. She enjoyed it a lot, as well as Kate (Social Giant Crazy for You) which walked with us. Snowy is still very careful for the puppies and however there isn't much milk to give they are still allowed to drink and most of all cuddle, hugging and playing with mommy.
Puppy updateAugust 13, 2014
This week the puppies are again moved forward. They are running around in the living room and are responding very enthusiastic on movement and sounds. They are eating multiple times solid food (soaked chunks) a day. Although they are getting solid food Snowy still gets regular in the welpingbox for a bit feeding but the most for the washing and checking everything is well, very sweet to see. They also have been de-wormed for the second time, which will be repeated at the 6th and 8th week. Much new pictures and a new movie are on the litter page!
Puppy updateAugust 6, 2014
The changes are keeping happening. The puppies starting to bark, walking (a little more stable) around, eating a more solid meal sometimes and even starting to play. They also have been out of the welpingbox for the first time and even a little while outside. This is of course very excited for them and they are not running around yet but the world is becoming very big suddenly. Enough reasons for lots of pictures and a movie!
Puppy updateJuly 31, 2014
The puppies are 2 weeks old now. Big changes have taken place; the eyes are open and the first steps have been made. They are growing well and mommy Snowy is besides the feeding giving wonderful washes. It stays beautiful to see and we have placed another movie and lots of pictures on the litter page so everyone can enjoy too.
Puppy updateJuly 25, 2014
Meanwhile the puppies are 1,5 week old. Luckily everything is well with all of them, inclusive Snowy. For the puppies the warm weather is very nice but for Snowy her comfort we try to cool her down with wet towels. Further she is very proud on her puppies and is taking very good care of them. Also the names are known, we have chosen the theme 'Fun Fair'. The names aren't coupled yet to a puppy yet, this will happen when they will be chipped at the 6th week. For new pictures and a movie please visit the litter page.
The puppies are bornJuly 15, 2014
The puppies are born! Today Snowy gave life to 4 males and 4 females! At this moment everything goes well with Snowy and her beautiful puppies. The first pictures are on the litter page so be welcome to take a look!
Pregnancy updateJuly 10, 2014
The pregnancy becomes very heavy for Snowy. Her big belly and the warm temperature make us very busy making it comfortable for her. But we are doing our best and the last week is started. We have placed new pictures on the litter page so you can see how she is grown so far.
Pregnancy updateJune 28, 2014
Snowy is doing very well. She is very happy and feeling good. She is starting to ask for more attention but she is growing well so that isn't strange. Last weekend we put up the welpingbox in the living room so she can get used to it and make it her own place before the puppies are coming. And with success, besides that she eats there she is there regular (mostly sleeping). We have placed new pictures on the litter page. We have also been to the forest this weekend and besides we took Geni and Joelle with us, also Kate (puppy out of Dizzy and Phantom) was there. It was very nice and the dogs had a great time.
Snowy is pregnantJune 12, 2014
Snowy has been mated and today the ultrasound confirmed the pregnancy! We are very happy with this news and are really looking forward to it! Also Snowy is very happy because she can eat more and that's her favourite hobby! For more information about this combination please take a look at the litter page of the expecting puppies.
Dog show in HultenJune 08, 2014
On Sunday May 25 we went to Dog show Hulten. This show is organised outside and we think that's always nice and cosy. We entered Joelle, Genesis and Pam. It was nice weather and with the present cooling really good to handle. Our sweethearts did a nice job in the ring. Joelle became 3th in the youth class, Geni became 2nd in the open class and Pam became 1th in the veteran class (8 year and older)! Also Bruno did great and became 1th in the open class. It was a very nice day!

Dog show in LeidenApril 08, 2014
On March 22 we went to a dog show in Leiden March 22. We entered Joelle however she is still very young. She enjoyed it much and did a nice job. She became 3th with a very good in the youth class. And, it has been a while ago, but also Snowy participated this show and enjoyed being there. Also in the ring she did a great job. She became 2nd with an Excellent in the Open Class and after that she became 2nd best bitch of breed. On Sunday April 6th there was also a show in Utrecht and this time we only entered Joelle. She became 1th of her class with a very good.
A visit to the beachFebruary 02, 2014
Last Friday we went with Pam, Noor and Joelle to the beach. It is a real joy to be in a complete different surrounding and to see the dogs enjoying this much.
Good bye AngelJanuary 25, 2014
The year didn't start well for us. With great regret we had to say goodbye to our Angel. This, for us such a special lady, appears to have a very aggressive type of cancer. The tumors spreaded so quickly that we had to say goodbye within a couple days because we don't want her to suffer. We and all the dogs are devastated with this loss. The day after we received the bad news about Angel (Saturday January 11) we had entered for the always cosy Clubmatch from KV Waalwijk. We decided to go and go home, because it is close by, if it didn't go well with Angel. Angel was very happy and even that enthusiastic when she walked to the ring that morning. Because we also entered her we did walked this special show with her and she did it with much pleasure. Angel became 2nd in the open class. Further we had entered Snowy, Geni and Joelle. Snowy became 1th in the breeders class, Geni won the open class males and Joelle became best puppy of the breed. Also Bruno (Social Giant Miracle Star) and Bella (Social Giant Rising Star) were entered and did a good job. Bruno became 1th in his class and further he became best male! Also Bella became 1th in her class and did it very well! Because of all these results we could participate in the ring of honour. First with Joelle for best puppy in show. She did it very well and became 5th! We also had entered Snowy and Geni for the pair class. This was very fun to do and besides we maybe had to practice a little, they became 2nd! Also Bruno could participate in the ring of honour because he and Indy were entered for the child-dogshow as belly dancers and became 2nd, very good! On Sunday January 12 we went with Angel, Snowy and Geni to the beach. Angel enjoyed it really much and has fun with running and playing. Also Snowy and Geni had a very good time. We also were regular in the woods. We have placed many, many new pictures on the website. The pages of Pam, Noor, Dizzy, Snowy, Genesis, Princess, Nicky and Joelle are up-dated. Below there are new pictures of the Clubmatch, the visit to the beach and multiple visits to the woods.
