There is some progress visible in the litter box! Stella
is a very carrying mom , as you can see in the videoclip , and the puppies look very well and are as healthy as can be. We

Stella likes to care for her puppies and
is a passionate mother. As you can see in the videoclip !
2010 february 15 – the puppies are born!
Stella and her 3 sons and the 6
daughters the 16.2.
Stella gave birth to 9 puppies, and this is a record
in our kennels history so far. Her
puppies are very even in weight, quite heavy with about 300 gr . Stella
recovered from the delievery and enjoys
having puppies ( and also to have 4 excellent meals a day!)
They are all very even in coat , size, length of neck
and back and excellent heads. We are more than glad about this Outcross litter
, and many many thanks go out to Ksenija in Latvia , kennel Red Factor, who
imported the sire Tonic and show so much
passion for the breed and to Neridah, kennel Anluan ,Tonic´s breeder
Downunder for letting such a quality dog leave Australia !
Fantastic international teamwork is behind this litter and this is something I
appreciate very much.
Now we are looking forward to exciting weeks with this
gang, and … and one girl shall stay!
2010 January 31 – 7 weeks pregnancy
is doing fine, and she is very pregnant – still 2 weeks to go for her!
are very curious to meet the little gang !
Stella was mated december 12. and
13. By „Tonic“ , the Australian boy –
and first pregnancy signs are positive !
Anluan Prince of Thieves aka “Tonic” , Imp Australien
Since a long time I was looking
for an attractive and safe outcross for my breeding programme – then Tonic left Australia at 4 months and had
a long trip to Latvia, where he joined the Red Factor Team. Ksenija Sizova is
since 1991 busy with Irish Terriers and very passionate ! I saw the boy growing
up via the website of his breeder and then the own Red Factor website, first
personal contacts were made, many pics exchanged, and so I found the perfect
addition to my line.
Tonic excels with his overall balance, right proportions
and great harmony. His neckline and
shoulder placement is really outstanding and so he moves. His temperament is
self confident and proud, but not aggressive. He is 48 cm high and has full
dentition, big teeth. his coat is bright natural red . And he is tested for
PRA, Patella, COLA, Cystine, all results are clear .
I want to keep the tested health
standards at a high level and so all suited very well !
You can read all about Tonic and his team and owner Ksenija Sizova
at kennel Red Factor and bis breeder Neridah Sharret offers also a lot of information about
this line at her website kennel Anluan .
Watch for updates soon!
The Rufus Irish Terrier Y Litter
Here are some impressions of our last litter

irish charme all hearts !
Willow is prepared for his 380 km trip

Bucky stays with us another 2 weeks!
10. Mai 2009 – 9 weeks

5. May 2009
Today the official litter examination of the Terrier Club took place.
Each puppy was examined and also
protocolled for general appereance, temperaments, faults etc. And as usual, all
went to this with best critics.
Last Sunday the breeder of the sire of the puppies , Peter Jaspers,
travelled 3 hours from Eindhoven
to check these 7 puppies of James and take pics of them all.
We saw nice toplines, tailsets,
elegant heads with nice small eyes with dark Kajal, promising ears and
mainly excellent coats, of attractive red colour.
The puppies were not trimmed
before the foto session, the dark puppy hair
did fell out and this indicates usually excellent coat quality.

May 2009 – 8 weeks
28. april 2009
Rain –what´s that – so our surprised puppies seemed to ask after their 3
weeks of sunny weather they experienced in their life. Now this nasty stuff was
much disliked , but they will have to wean that life is not only sunny days;-)
We want to play indoors!!!!
But this part of daily training is much appreciated by the little ones !
April 15, 2009
Today the puppies learned a lot – there exist big machines that suddenly
start to be very noisy and move and after they are quiet again, and the humans
handle them – and can be explored by the gang before and after the noisy
period. But…there was one little red boy, who was too curious and did dare to
follow the noisy monster….
Today ´s puppy video, we have now
summertime in april and they much fun in their 70 square meter outdoor run.
….C U ! ( the girlie)
– Easter 2009
The puppies spend Easter under the the sharp eyes of Stella in their
outdoor run. The weather is perfect, 22°C and all day sun, no wind. The little
ones discover many interesting things and
like extremely well their “sun terrace”.
april 10, 2009 – 5 weeks
„ one spezial puppy wants to bet he very
first always! “
The puppies take big steps forward to develop into little cute red devils
and their life has already changed a lot already!
April 5, 2009 - 4 weeks
Now the puppies have conquered thgeir indoor run .
And they knew immediately what they had to do with their first meal !
march 28, 2009- 3 weeks old
Sterlla has a lot of milk and this went into her puppies;-).
March 17, 2009
They grow and grow and Stella has enough milk for all
of them. She enjoys her 4 daily delicious meals ! In the end of the week we wait for the first puppies to open their
eyes. They can´t see much yet, but from then on each day they discover their
world step by step and we are looking forward to assist them to become same
nice companions as their parents are!

Our little bitch puppy has a very suitable white spot
on her chest – looking like an Y ;-).
She and her 6 brother spend their days suckling, dreaming
and growing – a very peaceful existance!
march 7, 2009
Here are Y puppies
- 6 boys and one bitch ! They
were born quite heavy in weights of: 1x
380, 2x 350, 2x320, 1x 308(the bitch puppy) , 1x 264 , and so Stella really had hard work . But
all 7 are alibve and kicking and grow very fast .So you can see ( and hear!)
them on day 1:
video day 1 !
March 4 – still 1 or 2 days
the sunshine .
For Stella´s third litter we travelled again to a
foreign country . Again in January, like
with her other litters as well. This time we visited the western part of the Netherlands, wich is the very
typical real “Holland” , many nice places that exist since
hundreds of years and show typical style of buildings and athmosphere. And I caught in the wonderful light of a cold winter morning with the silhouette of Leiden in the background
– and in front : a windmill – sure I had to take this picture also;-) !
James and his buddy Bob © Mokveld
But Stella wasn´t too much interested in the touristic
aspects of our journey – but she was very happy with my choice, that “ James,
James Hond “ was the red gentleman who waited for her! He is the litterbrother of Stella´s first
partner, the sire of the Rufus V litter.
Oliver James v Koudenhoven. ( Rufus Look at me x Jente v Koudengoven), a
very charming son of our dear Byron !
All in red – undercoat! - this noble and elegant Irish gent was
delighted about Stella´s visit.
With tons of charisma, a proud character and a very
friendly disposition also towards his 11
year old Irish companion Bob and 2 rabbits and a guinea pig, this is James. Irish Terrier temperament at it´s best!
Here they meet each other:
VIDEO Stella & James
Also at shows James was succesful, but his career was only
short , as his main job is at home and in the big garden!
