11TH DECEMBER 2009
We felt that we wanted to include this very sad news in our website.
We learned today that Russkaja Mechta Andor Absolut passed away on 1st December. Andor is the father of our beautiful Libby ( Otago Kenzo Kashaya ) and handsome Dutch ( Otago Ted Baker ). We decided to mate our lovely Molly ( Otago Kaikoura Moon ) to Andor because of his wonderful nature and excellent quality. We were one of the first to use him and are very proud to say that we continue to carry his excellent bloodlines in Libby's children Lily, Bonnie ,Max & Rosie . We also have his great grandchildren in our latest litter sired by Max ( Otago Maaka ) and hopefully in Rosie's future litter.
It was an honour to have met him and to be able to use him in our kennel.
Such a great loss to the world of showing and working alike.
Our sympathies and thoughts are with his owners Robert & Monique at this sad time.
I will never forget him.
Perhaps he is running free now with our Molly

27TH MAY 2009
We are looking for a show home for this very promising handsome young man..We are looking for a home where the new owners are interested in campaigning him in the showring.

Expected Litter
On 26th January our lovely 'Libby' Otago Kenzo Kashaya (top right) was mated to 'Falk' Aritaur Nominator (bottom right) and we are confident she is in whelp.

The pedigree contains some outstanding bloodlines including Royal Bell, Van Het Wantij and World Champion Gino Gomez del Citone on the european side and Chaanrose and Otherton on the english side.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW PEDIGREE


Libby has already produced some beautiful progeny in her two previous litters. Four from her first litter qualified for Crufts 2008 and two of those have qualified again for 2009.They will be joined by four from her second litter at Crufts 2009.
Falk has proven to be an excellent sire with several very successful progeny. Both parents have excellent temperaments.
Libby is VWD carrier and PHPV clear. Falk is VWD clear, PHPV clear and hips 3 : 3.

We are very excited about this combination and the bloodlines are expected to produce excellent type and character - ideal for show and working alike and of course companionship.

The litter is due around the 30th March. We already have interest in this litter so would recommend early booking.

We are bitterly disappointed to say that Buffy has not had the puppies she was scanned for. We do not know the reason why but the whelping date has passed with no puppies. We are very sad but Buffy is fine which is our priority.
We hope to try again with Buffy sometime later in the year.

We have decided to mate Libby again as she has produced some beautiful babies already, including our own Rosie,Max,Lily and Bonnie.We have chosen to stay with the same sire Aritaur Nominator.

Libby will be mated in the next few days any news and developments will be posted on the website.
Please contact us for more information on this litter

making 904L steel than 316L in the corrosion resistance and wear resistance is stronger. At the uk replica watches same time 904L steel containing molybdenum, nickel, copper than the rolex replica watches 316L steel is higher, and the proportion of these three metals and iron than large. So on the swiss replica watches weight of the same volume of 904L steel than the 316L steel sink a lot, more heavy sense, but also confirms the Rolex brand temperament - practical and stable.
