The last birthday in Fabruary in our kennel. This time the big day belongs to Cinnamon & Cookie MyWay. They are only 2 years old. Cookie is going to check on us this weekend and I am looking forward to it, as I didn't see him since he left with his new owners besides thousands of photos. Cinnamon stayed with us, so I see her thousand times everyday :D :D :D.
We called out "D" litter "Pipi gang" (in our language pipi means chick). They are doinh very well and grow into strong beauties. Two of them will live in Germany, one is still looking for her forever home and the rest will live in the Czech Republic. I am a bit slow to put together all the news on our website, so you are welcome to see our latest updates on our FB profile.
Another february birthday belongs to our litter "B" of our formal FCI kennel Beautiful Cold Hill. After the sad news from January Broke is running over the rainbow bridge now, but I really hope the rest of them will longer with us for that. Girls, all the best!
Our Xie vom Hatzenbach is 6 years old today! Time flies sooo fast, I still remember like yesterday when we brought her home as 6 months old puppy. I wish to both of us to stay with each other at least double time. There is no one else to come up with monkey business like she does!
Today Broke Beautiful Cold Hill crossed the raibow bridge. She suffered serious injuries on hunt of a wild boar and she succumbed to them. There is always risk when puppy is sold as a working dog, but a dog can get seriously injured during other sport activities as well. Broke died during what she loved and she was as good as hell in hunting. I dare to say that she was the best working bitch in our country. Many thanks to her owner for taking care of her and managing her to such a level, she was a class. Thank you, Jirka!
On Thursday morning Xia begun to give birth. We have 6 girls. All are doing very fine.
During Christmas I wanted to be with my family and myself alone, I wanted to spend hours on the sofa and just cuddle the doggies without social networks and checking my phone each 10 minutes.
Xia's pregnancy was confirmed and we can see her belly growing. But I intended to spend time with her rather than putting news on-line. And now the short announcement, that you are all dying to hear :)
Dad of the puppies is Wentdale Tom. You can not find much about the kennel Wentdale on Google :D We are simply not all online even in the modern time. Tom was born in UK under JRTCGB, where he also grew up. Lest year in spring kennel vom Hatzenbach imported him to Germany, where also my Xia comes from. Tom is a young male, typical russell, active, cheerful, easy to learn. He passed all health tests required by the german club and also tests of character. He did not officially passed any hunting test, but that is in process ;).
All the best wishes for 2023 to all good people!
The very last hunt of this year was in area of Křivoklá - Malá Bukovina. Fly, Minie and Raf were in and Xia had to stay at hume (due to to the mating). The terrain was easy and we had just lovely weather. There were also hunters from Norway and Denmark and at the end of teh day we hunted down 1 deer, 3 deers sika and 14 wild pigs.
We intended to mate Xia in spring, but eventually decided to postpone and try for puppies in autumn. If all goes well, puppies will be ready to leave to their new homes at the end of March. Which is just perfect timing, as they will have whole summer and great weather ahead.
If you watch our breeding closely, you already know I like to use males very close to working UK lines. When Xia's breeder told me, he just imported a new stud from England and he could also be a good match for Xia, the decision was made immediately. We got ourselves ready for 800km trip to Germany.
Although at home Xia was willng to mate with everyone, after we arrived at the place, she was playing hard to get and had no intentions to be mated. When her mood returned the next day, the male was not interested anymmore :D If everything was done within 5 minutes, I would not be as gratefull as I am now :D :D :D. We hope to have puppies in two months.
My husband was hunting with our dogs and other 20 hunters and 32 dogs in Loučeň. The hunted down 16 wild pigs and 1 fox.
Successful hunt in the area of Písecké Mountains. Together with around 40 shooters, 40 huntsmen and 30 dogs we hunted down 3 deers, 3 fallow deers, 15 wild pigs and 1 fog.
Daughter of our Fly gave birth to a lovely litter 26th September 2022 :)
Fly's grandchildren were born in kennel Křivoklátský Bull.
Mum is Broke Beautiful Cold Hill (Fox Meadow's FIREFLY "Flája" & Tammenkolon Eversti "Laku"), dad is Fernando Gold Florén.
There are still 2 boys and 2 girls available. The litter is by actively hunting parents, who are used for wild pigs and earth works. Both have excellent character.
It is a repeated combination. Puppies from the previous litter have excellent hunting skill, they are quick to learn, have excellent character and exterior.
Puppies will be suitable for hunting and dog sports.
