Havane (Caresse X Twiny): 118 pts for beauty, though unfortunately character not ok. Little miss enjoyed herself once again during the test, but unfortunately that wasn't the goal of the test, so we ended up with the remark 'high spirited'. Oh well, we would not have it any other way.

Fantastic news from Farah!

A while ago, Farah was selected to participate at  a casting for the new Cats&Dogs vacuum cleaner by Miele. Much to our (and her owners) surprise she was withheld for the final advertising campaign!

As of April, people can admire her together with some other dogs in bus shelters throughout Belgium. In addition, a short commercial starring Farah will appear just before and after a tv-show dedicated to dogs! You can see the commercials as well as the poster below.

Crufts (GB):

judge: Mr Webb (GB)

As Fougasse (Ycara X Pain d'Epice) got requalified last year, we took off once again for Crufts. This year, though, we dragged Caresse (Ycara X Osferatu) along as she had gotten a qualification at the show in Amsterdam.

First it was Fougasse's turn in a class of 9. He was awarded 3rd prize, which made us very happy.

Afterwards, Caresse could enter the ring, although she didn't get a placing, she was selected amongst the final 8 (in a class of 15). So we were very happy with her nice result.

So I guess we'll be seeing everyone again next year!
