There are lots of great news - but also a very sad one!
But let's start with the great news!

Our Skyflowers Jenny Blue "Stoepsel" has passed her breeding conformation on June 19, 2004, and can now call herself brood bitch!

And a new kennel name as well as a mega-great Logo is also ours! (1000 thanks to my dear friend Ingrid, who has designed this dreamful logo!) Now we are going to have some point this year, when things are going fine, small Skye puppies!

Misery

And our Xitus is going to be Daddy again:
Our Misery de la Porte de Choisy is also expecting puppies!

After the great H-litter from both of them we have decided to make this breeding again! The kids of both of them are not only beautiful, they are also unbeatable in character!

I have seen Sheen for the first time when he was 8 weeks old, and I had been thrilled from this small, proud and self-confident puppy! If I had not had my boys at that time - I would have taken Sheen immediately!

Still I have kept an eye on the "small one" all the time. When in 2002 he turned to be WORLD YOUTH WINNER in Amsterdam I had been very happy for him and his owners! He was also very successful at any shows and turned to be Champion at a very young age! Sheen reminds me very much of his Grandma Malheur and also of his great Grandpa Mirage! Now fingers are crossed that there will be many sweet puppies out of this combination!

I am thrilled of Dako for quite a while already! Especially his gorgeous character impressed me! He is such a friendly and charming boy! And besides that he has working grade BH, VGP I and IPO II! Of course he is also CSNB-clear!
When finally our
Fuzzy came into season I would have liked to use Dako - but I could not drive there because of the puppies! When Als Imke (breeder of Dako) heard about that she called (owner of Dako) and told her about my trouble! For Heike this was no problem, she got into her car and came over to Imke, who does not live far from here, so that I could have Dako for our Fuzzy! On the next day Roland (Heike's husband) came over to Imke and a day later Heike came again! Incredible but true - Heike and Roland drove from Munich to Bamberg - and back again - on 3 days, just that I could breed Fuzzy with Dako! I thank Heike and Roland from the deepness of my heart, and of course also Imke who made this possible!

And that's how it continued:

 

 

Dako & Fuzzy
Oh yes ..........

 

Dako & Fuzzy
......... the lucky couple    

 

 

Now it's meant to have fingers crossed so that this big love brings lots of puppies .................

Back from breeding we had to pack the camping car already as we went to the National Specialty in Austria. But first we hurried to Bratislava to pick up "our Filip"! It was great that he could spend the weekend with us and that we could meet each other again!

Then there was CACIB show in St. Gallen on May 15/16! I would have loved to go there to finally meet my Swiss friends again - but I did not want to leave the puppies alone! So I had Falko go to the show with Buzzele alone! Unfortunately Buzzele hurt her paw on the first show day and limped because of the pain! Therefore she only got a very good and went 3rd place!

With the help of Rege Briggen and her mysterious magic drops (1000 thanks to you, dear Rege) Buzzele could run again on the next day, got exc. 1 and went Youth Winner and therewith received the

Pokal "QUALIFYING AWARD CARD", Rosette

which entitles us to enter our Buzzele for the CRUFTS 2005 in England! (The CRUFTS is the biggest and most known show in! To enter there and participate one needs the Award Card, which you onle receive at some special shows - and when you win there!) Our Buzzele now has this card! Great, or?

Our new Rainbowbridge Sites (only in German language)

These sites are something very special for me! Although they have always been nice - they were not what I had imagined! Therefore, Gerda and I have designed these pages for weeks on end, so that finally I can say: Now these sites are absolutely wonderful and perfect! And therewith, also the questions of many friends, who have asked me "What is the Rainbow Bridge?", has an answer now.

Look at them - now you will probably understand me!

I thank my webmaster Gerda from the deepness of my heart for this gorgeous work, which - as you will see - was made with heart and soul! Thanks Gerda!

Finally there are new photos of the "Easter Bunnies". Unfortunately we had to let go one of the girls to the Rainbow Bridge on Apr. 9, 2004. That was really bad for me. And then we had to "fight" for the other three, but as it seems we have won the battle!!!

From the deepness of our hearts we want to thank our Silke, because without her we would not have the three small ones any more! Several times Silke drove over to us after work (and this is a trip of 300 kilometers for one direction), zu rescue the small ones. She did everything she could for the babies!

1000 thanks to Uli and Eva, who have - as always - helped me very much and still help, as well as to Margrit, who gave me uncountable tips and therewith helped the small ones!

Kindest regards also to my friends in the "Briards Friends"-Group, as they stood behind me and gave me lots of words of encouragement! And thanks to my Briard-Guardian-Angel Gerda! I am so very happy to have such friends as you all!

And here are three photos of the "Easter Bunnies". More photos can be found in the first puppy album ......... (only available in German).
