- I'm looking for a new home for Elmo, with no other males, preferably
where he can be an only dog but I have special conditions as I intend on
finishing his dutch championship and want to keep full breeding rights
on him. The reason I need to find him a home is because him and Joey are
not friends and I cannot keep them separated at all times, it's not fair
He's a very sweet male, but unfortunatly he can't live here anymore.

to have most of my dogs checked within a year from now.
It started yesterday with Bling, here eyes were checked by Dr Capiau at

I am in the process of making these banners pictured above, if there is
interest I can make them available for other breeders who do eye exams.

17.9.2009 Lucy's injury
I heard a rumour that my Lucy wasn't good enough to get something from
because "obviously" she has broken a leg due to a statement on her page
saying she cannot be shown or do racing/coursing due to an injury.
So to clear things up, Lucy did not break a leg, she was jumping out of
a crate and got her left hindleg stuck in the bars and had a metatarsus
luxation (the joint below the hock).
She had to have surgery and have a cast on her leg for a little over 2
months and has been and is still recovering, this happened in the
beginning of june.
She's healing just fine but her leg is a bit crooked after the surgery
and having a big, big cast. She has a plate and 6 pins on the metatarsus
bone. That's why she cannot be shown and that's why she cannot
participate in racing or coursing.
She has excellent bone density and it's actually hard to belive that she
didn't break her leg when she had the accident.
I would like to ask people not to spread rumours, and not "take a wild
guess" when they see a word like "injury", yes IGs can break their legs,
but they can also have all kinds of injuries or reasons not to be able
to show or race. It doesn't mean they can be excellent brood bitches or
If you're curious about something, don't hesitate to ask me, but please
don't start telling other breeders and people things you know nothing

best bitch 2 with the CAC witch makes her a Norwegian Champion!
The judge was Marit Sunde, last time she judged at this same show 4
years ago she put Joey up as BOB and he got his first CACIB.
Daniella is a daugther of Joey and she's the 3rd from this litter of 4
to finish her championship and she is the 6th champion sired by Joey.
Many congratulations to Kjell & Bjørg Omdals, breeder/owner/handlers!

15.3.2009 The first oval track racing
Yesterday I took Ira, Stella, Bling & Nox with me to Beringen where they
have a great oval track for the first training of the year.
None of my dogs have ever been to this kind of training and Nox is the
only one who has a coursing licence of those 4 so needless to say, I was
I let Ira run alone first, and he seemed to have no interest in the
bait, untill it went away, then he went after it like a bullet with
great enthusiasm and would not let go of it!
I was a bit late so I could only let Ira run in the first round, then
there was a lunch break and next up were the dogs running full rounds, I
thought I'd let Nox try that since I know she can run a full course.
I was a bit nervous, this is totally different from coursing but Nox
loved it and I think her time was around 33 seconds on the inner track..
not sure how long it was. I don't know if it's good time or not, I have
nothing to compare to.
Time for a short coffee break and I decided to let Ira and Bling run
together 100 meters, wich they did well, and then last, but not least
Stella got to run.
Stella is 1 year old now, and I have great hopes for her on the track
and field. The weather was wet, it had started to rain a bit and I
thought she might not want to run, but she proved me wrong and went
right after the bait!
I was alone, so I had to run after all the dogs like crazy so they
wouldn't turn around and come back to me. I almost caught up with Stella
after she "killed the bait", but when Bling saw that the bait was "dead"
already she turned around. so we'll have to improve ourselfes a bit. But
all in all, the dogs ran.. and so did I!
Here me & Stella are running togehter.. Stella is a bit faster..
We had a great day, I'm really looking forward to getting more into this
sport and will attend every training I can and get a licence on my dogs.
Many thanks to Paul & Maria (knl Canoodles, whippets) for helping me and
for the photos!
