Love her to the moon and back and hope for many more joyful years to come.

01.10.2022 - IHA Tulln
23.07.2022 - last dog exam before summer break at ÖGV Wien-Süd with an extreme heat of 33°C:
Roxy reached 77 points (= satisfactory) participating at the FCI-IGP - Begleithundeprüfung 2 (an obedience exam) despite this extreme summper heat. So for passing the exam we got a very nice silver batch from "ÖGV". Of course the result could have been a bit better, but instead of accepting a sit command Roxy decided to keep standing on the spot made us missing a few points and at the end of the exam I wanted to send her running some metres away and than lay down at command, she prefered to stay with me. ;-) Nevertheless the rest was really good and I'm satisfied with that. That last part of the exam we will have to train a bit better but therefore we will wait for colder temperatures.
Milow nevertheless showed perfect results with his owner Melanie at his "Stöber"-exam. There he had to find 5 small things spread out in a field and point them to his owner. In only 3 minutes he as accomplished this task with nearly perfect style and reached with 96 points (of 100) an excellent result.

Today we couldn't await the results of the ultrasound but we didn't need to worry. As soon as we connected the probe to Roxy's belly, we immediately got lots of ampullas on the screen.
So now we can officially announce many sweet babies from Roxy & Duke arriving around the 21st of March :-)
25.01. - Today we got a perfect result of Roxy's "Genetic Diversity" sent from the Veterinary Genetic Labors of the UC Davis. Her genetic IR (= internal relatedness) is only -0,05, which means she has lots of heterozygot alleles in her DNA.
20.01. - Roxy was happy to visit her friend Duke. After playing and running around they mated without any difficulties.
-> litter planning at the end of March 2019 :-D
So now we are awaiting Ultrasound results to confirm the pregnancy…
