USG Valča 2019

The 25th March 2019 - the ultrasound picture confirming Valentina's pregnancy.

According to the doctor there are at least 7 embryos of 12 mm which correspond to 26 days of pregnancy. The number of embryos can vary because they cover one other and to count them properly would demand more time and patience. I didn't want to stress Valentina with a long examination so the information is sufficient for us for now.

The due date is the 1st May 2019.

Finger crossed so that everything goes fine!

Very pleasant VIII. Winter National Dog Show at our northern neighbours opened our chase for the title Polish champion. To become the Champion , the dog must be awarded CWC (which is CAC) three times and at least one CWC must be achieved at International Show.

We lost our first CWC in the intermediate class this time. Among seven beautiful and  quite esembling females, Valentine received a silver medal, which is the second place.

The opening of the show season was commenced by 18. month Valentina at the National Dog Show in Brno on 13th January 2019.

In order to have the winner, somebody must be second, third ... and i was our case this time. The atmosphere was cool, an intermediate class, where we moved, was packed with beautiful females. I have to say that the obtained third place is in fact a success. The winner was Valentina´s sister living in Slovakia and we are very happy for her. The price stays in the family!

USG Karlyn

We were so excited! 

 

But unfortunately today´s ultrasound visit did not comfirm Karlyn´s pregnancy.

Dog breeding also brings these kinds of disappointments. One can plan everything in advance. Spends energy to find a perfect mating dog. You undertake all the female dog exams so that you are sure everything goes well. You make a long journey to implement matching but Mother Nature decides her way.

 

Let us belive in better tomorrows ...

The older I get more I realize how time flies quickly. I still remember the day when I brought each of my female dogs home and it feels like it was yesterday. No way! The youngest one is already 18 months.

I would like to stop time. The picture can do it!

Thanks to my whippets I was able to meet plenty of amazing people. Many of them became my friends and one of them is a fantastic photorgapher Dara Kuźmic, who I asked to photograph my dogs. These pictures will always remind me of them!  Even in times when they are not there anymore. In Dara´s words: " ... a picture is like a gem, everybody wants posses one ... " And now I own  my dog gems too. 

Taking pictures in a studio was a huge experience. Especially pictures taken together was a superhuman act. To make the girls watch the direction we wanted, to have their ears straight and some expression on their faces was a huge job to the photographer. And of course I didn´t want to spoil the pictures myself neihter. Dara is a real profesional, judge yourself ...

The weekend of 20th & 21st of October 2018 I dedicated to self-education in the sphere of genetics. I took part in a two day seminar that focused on population genetics and breeding domestic animals, particularly dogs.

The lecturers were academic workers from Animal Science Research Institute. Namely Mrs. A. Svitáková, M.Bráková, Z.Veselá who are long-time dog and small animal breeders. I can not either omit the senior lecturer Mr. L.Vostrý from the Department of Genetics and Breeding from The Czech University of Agriculture in Prague.

They revealed us the rules of genetics, variability and mutations. They explained the basic principles of classical genetics - Mendel laws and how to put them in our breeging practice. There was a very interesting lecture delivered and the main topic was" The Essence of DNA Tests". We learned a complete procedure from taking DNA samples to final results. The most helpful part of the lecture for me was the lecture dealing with "The genetics of dogs hair color". We were shown on concrete genetic interactions the essence of dogs hair color genetics.

I would like to apply the gained knowledge in my proper breeding. Mainly in the sphere of preventing genetic illnesses and strongly discussed inbreeding. Generaly siad, it was a high level seminar and it deepended my existing knowledge.

DSC 0708 kopieThis year the host of The European Dog Show was Poland. I was hesitating a lot whether to take a part or not, but finally the fact, that Warszawa isn´t too far, convinced me. I enrolled young Valentina to the show. Anyway I didn´t expect miracles, I just believed to enjoy our time.

According to my expectation, young female dogs were the second most numerous group. We met 18 young bitches from 6 countries and their quality was on a very high level.  All the more success was, that Valentina was shortlisted and got the recognition "Excelent".  Unfortunately we didn´t gain any of the first four prices, yet I´m satisfied how Valentina showed herself in this "high level" show.  I couldn´t stop admirig her movements on the blue carpet, her concentration and beauty. As if she knew, that something important had been happening and she completely forgot her "devilish" nature.

We received the title in black and white! Our young Valentina met the conditions and received the title "Czech Junior Beauty Champion". A great reward and satisfaction to a breeder for all the job and effort to show his dog in its best condition.

KV Whippet Klub4

The first autumn Sunday 23th September 2018 really deserved to be called an autumn Sunday. A rain, wind and cold welcomed us in the very morning and lingered the whole club show.

It was a small but perfectly organized show, richly supported by sponsors. There was a friendly and sweet atmosphere. Mrs. Marion Marpe from Germany assumed judging, a very pleasant and smiling lady who was friendly towards the dogs and their owners.

So I put on my wellington boots and I showed both of my whippet girls in their best possible. They were cold, shaking and all wet, but the title "Excelent" and beautiful opinions was worth it. The young Valentina received another CAJC and met the conditions for gaining "Junior Beauty CZ Champion". Then she became the best junior of the show - BOJ and gained the title "Junior Club Winner 2018". I´m so proud of my little girl! My sweetheart Karlyn won the third place in the open class.
