Who can resist him and his tons of charisma ? Stella sure couldn´t
– and the result is pictured below !
This litter gave me the points I had
expected to get and the combination of Dokie and
Stella is really a good match! The wonderful balanced heads with the x-tra small and dark eyes that are so rare nowadays, bodies
of right balance and correct lenth of back, exc angulations both ends, exc toplines and tailsets, very
promising coats, nice sizes
left us direction Netherlands....
…and „Violet“ ,
aka „Joy“ did join the team of kennel Haseland ;-) – we wish her much fun and all the success at
shows & in the breed she does deserve !
…„Aino“ alias „Vamp in red“ is now living in Vienna …
…and I have the joy and fun of
having little Valentino still some more days !
07.05.07 And here we
have the V litter at 8 weeks, first the 3 girls( 1
hour after feeding) , not trimmed
the 3 boys …
This “summer in april” with temperatures above
20 or even 25 °C makes it possible that the puppies spend their day outdoors
and they enjoy the constant sun, a “siesta” at noon and playing,playing,playing;-)
and also many visitors.
weeks old, the puppies enjoy the sunny spring time in their outdoor run!
already moves with style & perfection – and he´s
on the watchtower !
Now it´s time to discover the big world
outside litterbox and puppyrun
indoors! They have a 60 qm
outdoor run, and we will add this week daily new challenges – wooden elements
as well as tunnels, so their brains and motorik both
will be trained a lot now! 3 times they get their puppy food and Stella has
also milkto offer!
are 4 weeks old now and explore their indoor run – the puppy kindergarten!!
Soft carpet and blankets help them to learn moving and jumping without a risk
they get hurted.
Stella is cleaning all the time and she
wonders a lot how quick and fast her puppies get – this is her first litter and
she has to learn a lot! But she has still so much milk that the puppies are not
interested in puppy food.
01.04.07 3 weeks have passed since they are born –
watch them play now – since 2 days they changed into mini-Terriers!
25.03.07 2 weeks old are Stella´s
Eyes are still closed, so I can use flashlights. When their eyes are
open, they are too sensitive for light, and better wait taking pics until they are more used to the light. They start to
move around in the box a bit and stay some minutes longer active – soon it will
be the contrary: they only sleep short and play all the time;-) !
the boys - right : the girls
21.03.07 10 days old puppies
– Stella ha a lot of milk !
17.03.07 1 week old V
Stella licks and cleans all
really is pleased by her maternal duties ;-) !
14.03.07 3 days old
12.03.07 New pics of the 1 day old puppies
11.03.07 They are
born –our 21 th litter since 1983 and the 7 th generation of my line in a row. 3 very nice boys and 3 girls with fantastic
heads and ears already visible keep us all busy since last night!
8.5 weeks prenant all in red undercoat shows her
excellent conformation after a last trim – now we wait for her litter in about
2 days !
28.02.07 Stella 7 weeks
pregnant – still 10 more days about ….
20.02.07 Now 6 weeks are
over – and the relaxed Stella shows proud her grown belly!
She is fit and happy ,eats like a vacucleaner 1 kg Pedigree Pur – and then a dried cow´s
ear keeps her busy with teeth cleaning .
Little brother Rufi still has no suspicion,
but soon he will have some puppies around to play with in the springtime,
a perfect job for him – times goes by so
Stella is pregnant!
