Today we've picked up the adoption female Frozen Flame Silver City "Nina" together with her new owners the Veldthuis family. Nina is out of Chasqui Tinto Verano x Ch. Chasqui King Gizmo and she is the new girlfriend of our male Chaydon! You can find Nina's page at our co-own female section, because maybe we will breed a Blue Rising Star litter with her in the future. Most important is that she has found a wonderful home now so she can recover and enjoy the rest of her life. Pictures will follow later.

Blue Rising Star Dressed for Succes "Chaydon" has succesfully passed the MAG-test/TT today!

June 20 2011

This morning the very sad news arrived that our bred boy Blue Rising Star Collectors Item "Guarda" passed away at a way too young age. After being very sick from a heavy bacterial infection for some days, he was brought to the bloodbank in Nijverdal yesterday evening for a transfusion. Unfortunately Guarda was too weak to get the transfusion at that moment, so he had to stay there on an infusion last night, hoping he would get stronger. This morning he began to pass out and the doctors did try to reanimate him, but it was too late... We still can not believe it, it all went so fast and we want to wish Guarda's owners many strength with this great loss...

R.I.P. Guarda... We will never forget you!

June 19 2011

When we picked up Bubba in December 2010 in Hungary, his problems slowly started to show. It began with kennel cough, cystitis and bladder stones. He lost blood from his penis and his hair was falling out. He was on diverse medication and a special diet for all of this but the problems only got worse. After more research (x-rays and ultrasound), his prostate appeared enormous and was filled with cysts so we decided to neuter him. We hoped the problems would stay away after this, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. He started to get depressed; only wanted to go out for very short walks and just slept for the rest of the time. His movement was visibly getting worse and he lost weight, so again he got a total check up (blood-/urine tests and x-rays) and multiple problems were noticed. A spinal deviation showed plus the thyroid wasn't working like it should. Again a bunch of medication and painkillers for this boy, which actually didn't really work. When he got daily diarrhea and he finally ended up with a spinal tumor too, the time came to decide the best thing for Bubba, because this was not the life we wanted for him. He deserved a happy life after all he's been through, and not a depressed life in pain. He couldn't even walk normally, he kept falling down in his last days and this happened at an age of just 5,5 years old... I want to thank Bubba's co-owners Marjolein, Bas and little Mick - who was Bubba's best buddy. They took such good care for Bubba in his last months, they gave him so much love and I am happy that he could be a part of their family!

R.I.P. Bubba... We will never forget you!

April 25 2011

Today another good day at the International Eastershow in Leeuwarden! Our male Blue Rising Star Electric Shock "Spike" was placed 3rd with a Very Good result in Youth Class and our female Impreza "Reza" was also placed 3rd but then with an Excellent result in Intermediaire Class! We are very proud of our babies! Judge was Mrs. B. von Kralik (Germany).

Spike

13 mnths, brindle male, well proportioned, proper movement with enough drive, solid topline, enough rear angulation, sweet boy.

Reza

19 mnths, well shaped head with a lot of expression, proper movement, solid top- and underline, correct hindquarters, very sweet and calm girl.

April 24 2011

Herewith I would like to wish everybody a very happy easter and I would like to congratulate the owners of the beauties of our B litter! Sensai, Noah, Seda, Nikita, Java, Diva, Angel and Diezel are 4 years old today!

April 9 2011

Even though our last dog school Stichting Alfa also stopped their trainings unfortunately, we still make some nice walks together sometimes, just like today! This time we only brought Noah and it was a very pleasant afternoon!

Thanks Sandra and Stichting Alfa!

Our E-litter is 1 year old today! Happy birthday Spike and Buddha!

March 9 2011
Again some very bad luck... Our latest addition, CH Barry's Starting Over With KS "Bubba", will urgently be neutered tomorrow because of a huge prostate problem. After some symptoms, several echographies and x-rays were made yesterday, and today the advise came that there is not very much we can do about it. Bubba's prostate is enormous, it has grown outside his pelvis and it is filled with cysts. We think it's a real shame we can not have any offspring of him, but this is the only best option... I want to thank Bubba's co-owner Marjolein for taking good care!
March 6 2011

At the exhibition in the Martini Plaza in Groningen, our male Blue Rising Star Electric Shock "Spike" (11 months) was qualified with a Good and our female Impreza "Reza" (17 months) was qualified with a Very Good in youth class. Very Good was the highest qualification in this class today, because the judge thought an Excellent result is not appropriate for a dog that still develops. Our male Blue Rising Star Dressed for Succes "Chaydon" (24 months) was qualified with a Very Good in de open class. We are proud of our doggies! Judge was Mr. M. di Chicco (Italy).

Today some good and some bad news...

The good news is that our girl Goodies Criss Cross Creation "Chinook" is bred to our boy Blue Rising Star Chasq Creek Café "Xem" and we are hoping for a nice litter from this combination around April 1st!!! Echography will take place in 4 weeks and we will keep you updated about the result of that!

The bad news is that the test results of our co-own girl Blue Rising Star Chasing My Chance "Xeena" came in and it seems she unfortunately has ED 1/1 (besides HD B/B). Therefor we've decided not to breed with Xeena so we canceled the planned combination with Ginobili. With pain in our hearts she is moved to our retired ladies at the website... We would like to thank Caroline and Besfort again for taking such good care for Xeena!

January 12 2011

Unfortunately a man who has done very much for our breed has passed away today at an age of only 46 years old; Kevin Meling from Yukon's kennel. I was so honored that he, breeder of Ch. Yukon's Diamond in the Ruff and many other great dogs, wanted a puppy from my female Diega onc day. It's a shame it never happened and it never will... Much strength to family and dear ones... Rest In Peace Kevin and thanks for what you have done!

January 6 2011

Today our co-own lady Blue Rising Star Chasing My Chance "Xeena" was placed 4th out of 8 females in Open Class at the My Dog show in Gothenburg. She got an Excellent qualification and judge was Mr. Malo Alcrudo Rafael (Spain).

Congrats to Xeena's owners!

Last year I've been asked to write an article for the Hoflin Annual 2010, which came as a big surprise. I wrote it with much pleasure and today I received the Annual. I'm very proud of our first publication including pictures!
