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


Stella is doing fine, and she is very pregnant – still 2 weeks to go for her!

We 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 !

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!

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.

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;-) .

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….

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”.

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!

Winter in Holland     Mühle in Holland



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;-) !

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 !


Sir James


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!
