It is the last day of the year and I am writeing down some thought from the year who past.
We have had two litters and the last one is still here in the puppyroom they are 6 weeks and all of them got fantastic new homes.
The year beginn with recovering from a big lost of a puppy we been waiting for and we got sad news of our cowned Viljanshof Knockout Grande Final
he was our new studmale to be, but that will not happend. But with Anna in the other end of the leash will he be a fantastic water rescue dog, that will make us happy.
Knockando's QMP Quincy Red
our wounderful old male still makeing us happy has put his dansing shoes on the rack he enden last year as a king.
we visit the the world dog show in Amsterdam with friends from up North and south we enjoyed that so much.

Big congratulations to a such fantasic dog and his owner
The end is here and 2018 can be put in to the hstory.
There has been many laugh, smal and bigger joyful moments, but it has also been some disappointment and sorrows.
But some how I am greatful and thankful for my old beautyful and happy dogs are still around, not evryone has the same luck.
Some of our beloved dogs has walked over the rainbow.
Most of them has been old but it has been one to young to go, I'm so sorry for this.
I do belivee that all individuals that join us on our path in life has somthing to give or try to teach us somthing.
Something we can bring with us on the road true life.
For many people the dogs makes life richer, for me it is an honner to be a small part of this.
This is just a short brife of the year 2018
We had a nice kennel meeting were we got some tips of how we can work with our dogs. We summer comes will we meet again an see who wather rescue is done and test it with our dogs and for those who want to do the test SOR it will be possible day 2.
