Mandy took me for some turism to Bokrijk, and amazing place in Belgium were they have built a town of old traditional houses from different areas in Belgium. For me, who loves old buildings, this was great!

Back again :) The summer starts drawing to a close for this year and we have had a wonderful summer :) In June we reeived a much-awaited visit from my dear friend Mandy, imagine what the DdB has generated in my life... Withouth them, I probably would have never met some of the people I see today as my closest friends <3
When Mandy was here, we also had one of our puppies Barthez with us for a vaccation :) He is a wonderful guy who falls into the pack as well <3 Mandy took some lovely pictures of the dogs and you can se them here :)

First day of vacation we packed all dogs in the car and went to Gothenburg to meet our friends Elisabeth and David and aslo to do the BPH (mental and personal test) and the test for Wildtracking with Happy and Iz. They both cleared their BPH without problems and the same with the Wiltracking test :) So they are now allowed to compete in openclass Wiltracking and compete for the Wildtracking Championship :) Speaking of Wildtracking Champions... The same day as Happy and Iz were approved Oden and Krut raced for their last first prize in Openclass and they are now both Wildtracking Champions :) It was so incredibly fun to be there when it happened and I am so proud as a breeder <3 Gongrats Petra and Krut and Nathalie and Oden <3
Iz during her BPH, thank you Nathalie for the pictures! Sadly I have no photos from Happy.
Happy, Iz, Krut and Oden!
A copple of weeks ago we also went to se Aslan, he is such a beautiful boy and everytime I get the chanse to se some of our offsprings I am walking around on fluffy pink clouds for a week <3 Thank you Sussie and Jonas for a lovely day<3

Bulten, Bulten, our lovely Bulten... Seven years young today <3 I can´t belive it has been seven years sins I first held him in my hands, so many things has happened and he has grown from a crazy pup to a beautiful and wise man <3 Happy Birthday Bulten, we love you <3
Another thing that I am very happy and proud about is that on May 3rd,after almost two years of study and 30 physical meetings, I took my "degree" from the Swedish Kennel Club Dog Breeders Education :) It has been a wonderful and very educational time <3

You can really tell our mountain is coming to life again after a long winter, you can smell it, hear it and every sight of it says Spring is here! And I love it. Walking around on the mountain this time of year is an energyboost compares to nothing else <3
Our King of the mountain <3

As I said, our mountain is coming to life again and I specially enjoy going out early morning before sun comes up and stay out to se the sunrise <3

Double up on the best, our Queen Viva <3
That´s it for now, take care and enjoy spring everyone!
I have had some great news from my Dogue-family!
10/4 I first got a phone call from Petra telling me Krut did his BPH (behavier and
personal test) with exellent results only 13 month old :) And then, just a few hours later I had a call from Natalie telling me Oden got his first 1 prize in
openclass wildtracking :) Aaaand then, also the same day as Petra and Natalie called me, a call from Elisabeth... Jamaica, only 13 month old took her third 1 prize in
openclass wildtracking and with this she is now also a Swedish Wildtracking
Champion :) Wohooo, I am so happy! Well done everyone, I am still bouncing around on little
pink clouds <3
Here at home everything is just fine except Bulten has a small injure on his left eye so he is now under medical treatment and hopefully we don´t have to do any op. We have had heating season sins february but Bulten has been really calm and not to bothered :) Iz and Happy is growing nicely, I have had them both X-rayed on the elbows and both Iz and Happy are Ed 0/Free. This means we now have seven of the eight pups Ed x-rayed and the result so far is six Ed 0/Free and one Ed 2/3 and one not yet x-rayed :)
I have finaly been as Sannas too to have some new pictures taken of the girls, so now I have changed their pictures on their own sites :) I have also updated with some more results under Ben & Jerry´s litter :)
