I had some trouble with the pedigree software program that I am using, but I finally managed to publish the puppies pedigree on my website. It can be found at “announcement stud dog” and you can see the pedigree if you click here.

Biscuit in Dortmund

On Saturday the 12 of May, Henneke and I travelled to Dortmund at 04:00 hrs in the morning. Quite early! It was a nice day but for Biscuit and me not very successful. We were not in shape, Biscuit and I. Maybe because I was too nervous? Maybe because I could not concentrate (too tired?)? I don’t know. Anyway, we left the ring with a Very Good. The judge believes Biscuit is a nice bitch but I did not present her well. Well, I believe he is right…..

German Clubshow in Bedburg

Yesterday Biscuit, Henneke and I went to the (very well organised) German Clubshow in Bedburg. We had to get up at 04:30 hours, but because the clock went over to summertime again, we in fact had to get up at 03:30 hrs! Quite early:-). But it was all worth while. We had a very nice day, the weather was beautiful, the atmosphere was amazing and the people where fantastic! We really enjoyed ourselves. And, Biscuit was placed first in open class (1U)! We got a very nice show report: Continue reading

Results Biscuit’s DNA test Coat Colour

Yesterday the results came back from VetGen on the Dalmatian DNA coat colour test. I had the test done because Biscuit could be carrier of the lemon gene. Her mother is carrying it, her mother got it from her father and he got it from his father. It is not a problem at all, but of course quite important to know when you want to breed. Because I was curious, I also had her tested on the liver gene. Well, she is not carrying lemon. But…….. She is also not carrying the liver gene! She is what we call homozygote black! Which means all Biscuit’s baby’s will be black spotted.

Biscuit’s Hipscore results
