CAC/CACIB show in Brussels . Last show of 2011. We can be proud of Henk’s perfect handling today, and of wagging tale Kimani’s Mojo fan under de mune with his 2nd place in strong Youth Class with Excellent, and balanced Paerdecroon Baron Borg with a 3rd place with Excellent in a strong Open Class. Mojo and Borg had the true show attitude and both did a very good job. Also outside the show ring our boys got compliments. Furthermore Prince Charming Mojo was one of the most cuddled and photographed dogs when he enamored many many visitors passing his bench; Casanova Mojo has a high hug factor.

12 December 2011
Today at the CAC/CACIB show in Wijchen. Paerdecroon Baron Borg (32 months) a 2nd place in the open class with Excellent. We hope that 2012 will bring him the Dutch champion title. A new year with new opportunities!
Kimani’s Mojo fan under de mune did a nice job also. Open, free and friendly he entered the Youth Class for the first time. He gained a 2nd place with Excellent and a marvelous ”more than excellent” judge report. One of the remarks is that Mojo has ”zeer fraaie lippen” (very nice lips)… Sweet Mojo is for kissing … that’s for sure!

3 December 2011
At the international show in Rouen/France Paerdecroon Baron Borg became BEST OF BREED with CAC / CACIB.
Unnecessary to explain that we are very proud of our stunning Borg.
Paerdecroon Mumoja (Puma) became 2nd Best Bitch with res.CAC/res.CACIB. Well done sweet Puma; she was so close to her International Championship.

2 December 2011 Paerdecroon Baron Borg’s girlfriend Gelbrich Douwtzen van Aemburen is confirmed in whelp. Puppies will be expected approx. 9 January 2012 at Kennel Van Aemburen/NL.

27 November 2011 Today at the Winner CAC / CACIB show in Amsterdam. Paerdecroon Baron Borg was handled in the open class (11 entries). Together with 5 other dogs Borg gained an excellent, unfortunately no placement for Borg this time.

5 November 2011 Today at the Bleiswijk Paerdecroon Baron Borg went 3rd Best Male with Excellent and res. CACIB; Borg got a judge report you can only dream of. Super result! but res. CAC would give him the Dutch Championship… again so close. Looking forward to the next try.

30 October 2011 Big Carnelian litter Reunion. We are happy and proud to welcome back home all 11 puppies with their families and daddy Farmers Guardian African Akono with Wolle & Petra. All ”puppies” have a lovely temperament, great body structure, nice heads, good angulations, good chests and excellent movements. We felt it as very honorable that all were present. We had a great day together with a nice walk with each other and drinks etc. afterwards. Thank you !

On 2 April 2011 during a terrible delivery Ferra’s Chuma Mexx fan under de mune gave birth to the Carnelian litter: 9 boys and 2 girls; all strong and healthy puppies. Because of several worrisome inexplicable signs we drove to the veterinarian on beforehand at night. That was the luck for Mexx, the babies and us that we followed our common sense but above all our heart. At the vet’s place Mexx’s situation turned complete wrong very fast. During the caesarian section it appeared that the womb was turned over and exploded already, which is a fatal situation for all. Because of the exploded womb a complete castration was needed immediately. The next period was insecure because of possible infections and coming on stream of the milk production. But we managed it all with our strong focus and love to mother and babies and with help of Henk & Wil Vermeulen, who were present at the reunion too.

We experienced with our C litter that breeding means above all that you have to take it how it comes and it is what it is. We still are very sorry that we could not add a girl out of this litter to our kennel. With our breeding strategy in mind we had to deal with flexibility, considerations, choices and acceptation. Our integrity and honesty in this gave us respect, friendship and a priceless trust in our kennel from all whom it concerned. For that we are thankful. Therefore this litter was very special to us!

25 October 2011 Unfortunately we received a sad message from Austria. Mirjam Klobassa informed us that Tosha is not pregnant.Whatever the reason for this was we shall never know. Nature has so decided.
2 October 2011 Today at the International show Zwolle …. again!… Paerdecroon Baron Borg’s was close to his Dutch Championship. Borg won the Open Class with Excellent and became 3rd Best Male; he got the res. CACIB, but not the res. CAC, which Borg only needs for the Dutch Champion Title. We continue….
