No spring puppys!

Unfortunatly there will be no spring puppys at Kennel Kalexas this year.

At the ultra scan on monday Deena showed us an empty uterus and we are so sorry.

 So now we are making other plans and looking forward to Thyra and Juras hopefully litter later this summer.

Desverre viste ultralyden ingen valper hos Deena og dermed blir det ingen vårvalper hos oss i år.

Men vi svelger skuffelsen og legger nye planer.

Vi venter dermed i spenning på at Thyra skal begynne å løpe og vi forhåpentligvis kan ta i mot hennes og Juras valper litt senere i sommer!

Siste uken før jul tok Kathrine Gunstad og jeg en liten juletur til Gorinchem i Nederland.

Glen stilte for andre gang i Nederland og han fortsatte som sist. Nr 1 i Bruksklassen og derfra til Beste hannhund med Cert og CACIB nr 2 i Nl. 

Magnus ble nr 2 i Championklassen slått av årets mestvinnende flat i Nederland.

Vi hadde en fantastisk tur for sjel og helse som vi gjerne gjør om igjen!
