19.12.2011 Brussels dog show 2011
The last show of the year started with a change of judges.. well not much to do about that when we're already there. Miles got the reserve but will inherit the cac and cacib so he now has more than enough cac's to finish his Belgian title, he just needs to come back next summer to get the last cac after 1 year and 1 day has gone by between the first and last cac.
Penny was only 2nd in open class.. not quite what I wanted as she showed great.. and of course because she is just absolutely stunning;)
2012..... we are ready!!
7.12.2011 Bye-bye bichons
Today was a hard day for me, Phoenix and Dolly went to Iceland, they will be in a quarantine for 4 weeks (an excellent quarantine station, it will be more like a spa treatment for them) and then their owners will finally get them!
Phoenix has been with me for little over a year and I must admit that I was quite attached to him and am very happy for his owners to trust me with him and letting me show him to some pretty memorable wins.
While here with me Phoenix became Luxembourg and Dutch Champion, he has enough cac's in Belgium but unfortunately the required year and 1 day had not passed between his first and last cac. He's also pointed in Germany.
He became Amsterdam Winner 2010 and 2011, Belgian Winner 2010, Rheinlandsieger 2011 and Club Winner 2011 and got the fancy unofficial title "hopkoning 2011". He's got 7 cacib's in 3 countries and just needs the last one after a year and 1 day has passed between the first and last (and that was 2 days after the Amsterdam show.. typical).
Dolly came to me at the WDS in Paris, this little furball has so much attitude, it wouldn't surprise me if she'll be the first bichon frise to ever win a Best in show in Iceland ( I don't think a bichon has ever won BIS there), she is that good and then with her showy temperament I believe she will have great achievements! Here she won BOB baby at her first show and BIS-3 baby and the PDC speciality and BOB puppy at the Amsterdam winner show:)
I got news from the quarantine station, they arrived, cages were dry and dogs where happy & everything is going great. But the house sure feels empty without them, and now I just have 1 dog to bath and no "group 9" dog to show, that is a little bit weird.
7.12.2011 Amsterdam Winner Show results
Phoenix the bichon was entered to his last show in Holland and that was no other than the Amsterdam Winner show.
The judge was Hans vd Berg and he gave Phoenix a great critique and awarded him BEST MALE, and his second Amsterdam Winner title and of course the cac, cacib and crufts qualification!!
Dolly was entered as well in puppy class and she was BOB puppy!
A very great way to end my journey with Phoenix, this time I got to watch him in the ring as I still need to be careful after my knee surgery so Kristy Leest stepped in and showed him beautifully. She also groomed both him and Dolly.
I will add photos very, very soon.
7.12.2011 Eye check
Last friday I went to Amsterdam to have Stella's eyes checked by an ECVO specialist. Everything was fine and her eyes were free of all hereditary diseases except for a little VD in the left eye.
So our litter plan is on a 100% and now we just wait for her to come in season.
24.11.2011 Change of plans
Blings planned litter will be postponed until next year.

Sunny & Penny BIS 2 Couple, judge Norman Deschuymere
I cannot thank Kristy Leest enough for the help, she's handled Miles to his championships, they are truly the dream team. She also handled Sunny and Penny for me in the big ring for the couple competition because my knee was starting to hurt . -note to self, do not enter that many dogs to a show a month after knee surgery, that was a challenge!
Also special thanks to Attila Schlosser for showing Joey in the big ring for the veteran competition. Unfortunately the judge did not recognize the breed so needless to say Joey was not awarded a placement. But he showed and moved great with Attila!
Ring has been to his first shows in Brazil and boy did he do well!
He was shown as a junior and won 3 times BIS and 3 times BIS 3!!
He is owned by Canil Apoama who are doing a fabulous job with him.
Many thanks to the judges who appreciated and awarded his quality, I am a very, very, very proud breeder.

23.10.2011 Slow month
There's not much going on here, I had surgery on my knee 3 weeks ago and haven't been able to do anything with the dogs so the days are all about being on the sofa, under a blanket and me trying to place my leg in a way where they will not jump on my knee:)
We'll be at the Luxembourg show in in November showing the IGs for the first time (I've only shown Casper the poodle and Phoenix the bichon at that show).
I have updated the website, put in new photos of some dogs and just "cleaned up" a little bit here and there, it's not ready yet but there should be no disturbances for those looking at the website
I am going over all the photos on the website and making some changes, so if there are some missing photos or different fonts on the text in the coming days it's just me working on the website :)

We had tons of fun in Zwolle, winning BOB with Miles over the top winning bitch in Holland was absolutely amazing I'm still smiling. Miles looked absolutely stunning with Kristy who did an amazing job.
It was also fantastic to meet Myla (C. Timeless Beauty) ad Ziva (C. Defining Moments). Ziva looks great and is very, very promising but she needs more ring training.
Mr Rainey had many good words about my dogs, and I am very grateful for the win.
On our way home we stopped at a beach and let the dogs out to play and run.

5.9.2011 European Winner Show 2011
On saturday me and Kristy went to Leeuwarden, I went to the European dog show with Miles and Penny and Kristy went to the PDC speciality show with Phoenix and Dolly (yet to be introduced here...)
We did ok, both Miles and Penny got excellent, Miles was 2nd in his class after the beautiful Caprice Du Domaine Du Chanteloup, no shame in standing after him and Penny was 4th in intermediate class (to be honest I wanted her to place higher).
We met Mojca, Simon and little Billy (Caeles Timing Is Everything) he got an excellent and was 2nd in intermediate class.
I'm staying positive and am happy with being placed on such a big show, the IG entry was the biggest sighthound entry with 54 entered under sighthound specialist R. Tromp-Pruyn (Popvovs afghan hounds, NL) .
At the PDC speciality Kristy got Best male and Club Winner title on Phoenix and BOB and BIS-3 baby on Dolly (who is also a bichon) :)
I did not have a camera with me but hope someone got photos and will send to me.
On sunday it was my time to be the assistant and I went with Kristy again and she got Best female on her toy poodle Calais Dell'Alberico! So Calais got 2 titles, FCI Centenary Champion and FCI Centenary European Dog Show Winner 2011! Her half brother Scido got the reserve CACIB :)

Miles went on a roadtrip with his handler Kristy Leest all the way to Split in Croatia where the 4 summer night shows were held.

Many thanks for all the nice words about Joey, he might be 9 years old now but he's still turning heads :)

Abby: very promising and 3rd in puppy class, that was a challenge, but fun :)
Maggie: excellent in open class
7.7.2011 1 year..
Today I think about Nox, I think about her every day, but today I am constantly thinking about her and her unborn puppies and how I should have known better, how my vet should never have let me go home, and that if many things that didn't go wrong had been working, she'd still be with me today.
Nox died 7/7 2010, it was one of the worst days in my life and I think about it all the time. I think about her lying next to me in my bed when I go to sleep, she was there one minute and gone the next.
I wish for no one to go though this.
My memories of Nox are great, we did some great things together and she always made me smile. I am fortunate to have her son Miles here, and her granddaugther Abby.
I will never forget you, my big black angel in the sky.

9.4.2011 Luxembourg 27/3
I went to Luxembourg for their yearly spring show and had Casper and Phoenix with me.
Phoenix got Exc1 in championclass and got the CAC and is now a Luxembourg Champion. He ended up getting the reserve CACIB.
Phoenix is groomed by Wendy Schellens
Casper had big competition in his class, I was getting pretty nervous since he's been king of reserves and he needed to win the class to finish his championship.
He showed great and he looked AWESOME thanks to Kristy Leest.
Casper ended up winning his class and getting the last cac he needed so he's now FINALLY a champion! He went in again with the winners of the other classes and the other colours and ended up getting the reserve cacib and I must say I was thrilled, it was a big win because the competition was good.
So the trip home went quite smoothly with 2 new champions in the car. I will get a photo of Casper soon
24.3.2011 Female puppy
I have still not chosen between the blue and fawn bitch after Stella. If there is a breeding/showhome out there interested in either of the bitches I would be interested in co-owing the best one, not keep it myself but keep the right for 1 litter.
So if there is anyone out there interested in a bitch after Stella and Dollar, let me know and we'll see if we can work something out. I am very easy to work with.
Both have great temperaments, promising movements. More detailed info will be given upon contacting me so don't be shy. Even if you're just curious.
8.3.2011 2 boys looking for a home
I still have 2 puppies looking for the perfect homes.
* The black boy after Bling and Flame is available. He is very, very promising, has great temperament and a beautiful head.
* Boy 1 after Stella and Dollar is also available, he is just awesome, so fun and easy going, wonderful temperament, promising head, good size, nicely built.
Contact me for more info and photos (will post new photos tomorrow, check out the blog, I update that regularly allthough I don't write here that it is updated)
I have updated the puppyblog, sorry for how late I did it, the 7 week photos of both litters have been added along with the 8 week of the boxers.
I have 2 boys available from Stella's litter. They could be of interest for lure coursing or racing homes, they certainly seem to have the temperament for it. They are of good size with excellent temperament, nice small heads, promising toplines and so far the movement looks very good.
Then I have the black boy from Bling, I am still thinking if I should keep him, find a co-owner or sell him, he is very nice and I don't want to see him go out of Europe or too far away as I might want to keep breeding rights on him. So if anyone is interested or has an interesting offer, don't be shy:)
14.2.2011 Rheinland Sieger Show
This weekend was spent driving to and from Rheinberg, Germany.
IGs were on saturday and we did quite well for juge E. Raufelder, DE:
*Dies Irae Caeles Du Manoir Des Ombreuses won his class with Exc, then he won the VDH-CAC and the Club-CAC and Reserve CACIB (wich will be changed into a CACIB). So Dollar is now in the waiting period for his international and German championship.
* Caeles It's Showtime was 2nd with Exc in juniorclass and got the reserve junior CAC.
On sunday I had Phoenix entered and he did super for judge Jos Dekker, NL
*PaRay's Vogelflight O' The Phoenix BOB, CACIB, VDH-CAC, Club CAC and the title "Rheinlandsieger 2011" .
Thanks to Wendy, my groomer for always making Phoenix look his best.
Many many thanks to the judges this weekend.
**If anyone took photos of Dollar in the ring, I would really love to see them and perhaps get to use 1 here.
10.2.2011 Welcome back Miles
I went to Amsterdam on saturday and after driving around in the cargo area, getting wrong directions and gps saying one thing but the map another... I finally found the KLM and their "Animal hotel" :)
I must say this was a way easier process than picking up in Brussels, kudos to the KLM animal hotel and super service!
Now the mystery IG I was picking up is no other than my very own, "homemade" Miles:) He's back from America, I cannot thank Stephanie and Avery enough for offering him back to me after loosing Nox, it means so much to me!
Miles is fabulous, I really love him, his temperament is great, he is beautiful, he knows how to move and he knows how to run! What more can you ask for!
I will hopefully get new photos of Miles soon and I will publish them, but go in "males" in the menu and find Miles for more info:)

1.2.2011 Exciting news
I am going to Amsterdam on saturday to pick up a dog....
.. but I have decided to keep it a mystery until he's here in my arms and perhaps a new photo. But he is black and he is beautiful and he's a he and an adult:)
I went to Mouscron on sunday with the 2 Americanos:)
Phoenix the bichon was entered under Lisbet Mach who put him first in the champion class, but we then ended up with the reserve cac and reserve cacib.
Thanks to Wendy for the grooming.
Ira the IG was entered under Svante Frisk from Sweden, he showed beautifully and got an excellent and ended up with the reserves as well, but since the best male (Be Bop ddd Chanteloup) is already an international champion, Ira will get he full CACIB and that is what we wanted.
I got to do some more handling so I had a blast, I showed a junior chihuahua bitch against the male junior and won BOB junior, then I took her in for the BOB competition but got beaten by the male her owner was showing. The stunning Misty Meadows I have a Dream and as she had BOB in poodles I got to take "Harry" in the group and what a blast it is to show him! Totally different from the IGs.
I also got to show a baby greyhound, Uksi, she's just under 6 months and is owned by my friends at knl Canoodles. I got to take her in the big ring, it was a little challenge but Uksi did great for her age and we'll hopefully come back stronger from the puppy class:)
I don't have any photos from the show, unfortunately.

23.1.2011 Caeles 2010 summary
January started out with the nice news of the 2009 Norwegian top lists where Joeys daugther Eugenios Posh Spice was #1 IG, Joey was #2 stud and Elmo #4.
*Eugenios Mrs Robinson gained her Swedish championship at the My Dog show in Gothenburg.
*Caeles Hell Yeah got his first US major
We got our first visitor of the year, the border collie Orka who stayed with us for a short time before heading to Denmark, and evt. to Iceland to her owner where she is doing great.
*Hesve’s Beauty moved to Sweden to knl Mannequinn’s and had a beautiful litter of 6 there, sired by Joey.
We took it slow in febuary, the time litter was born and most of my time went to the puppies. This was Tingen’s first litter and Ira’s first litter at caeles and I am mighty proud of these babies.
*Casper was shown twice, in Mouscron where he got the reserve (the CACIB will be inherited) and in Rheinberg, Germany where he got the VDH CAC torwards his German championship and a club CAC as well.
March consisted of taking care of the puppies, and showing Casper in Luxembourg where he won his class and got the CAC torwards his Luxembourg championship
April came with no shows for us but we got some great news from Germany. Caeles Make My Day was BOS at a show and got her 2nd VDH CAC torwards her German championship. 8 days later she got her 3rd CAC!
*The Elmodaugthers Simply Heurekas Cassiopeia & Cassandra were shown as well and Cassandra won the class and the junior CAC while Cassiopeia was 2nd.
May was filled with shows however, starting out with the double show in Dortmund where Casper got the reserve (yes he seems to be the King of reserves) both days but luckily on Saturday at the Europasieger show the CAC is double for the winner and the reserve counts as a full CAC, he also got the club CAC both days.
*Elmo got his firs Norwegian champion offspring, Twan-San-Yen Excel Amico Dorina did it in style by going BOB at the very first try finishing her championship.
*And finally time to show some iggies, at the national show in Wieze I had Stella and Casper entered, both ended the day being BOS and got the CAC and the unofficial title Hopkoning 2010.
*Ninja debuted in the showring winning the reserve CACIB in Arnheim, and my guest Ch Smash JP Lovin Life got the reserve as well.
*We had more good news from Germany, at a sighthound speciality Caeles Make My Day got the CAC and ended up going BOB and BIS-3 and Elmo’s daugther Simply Heurekas Cassiopeia was BIS puppy
*More, good news came in, this time from Norway. Elmos son Eugenios Amenhotep won the CAC both days at the sighthound show in Hurdal, Norway
*Joey’s daugther Eugenios Posh Spice was BOB one of the days on that double sighthound speciality in Hurdal and Ch Sasha was BIS-3 veteran!
We did 1 show in june, an open show but we did it in style and entered 6 dogs! Caeles Timing Is Everything was BOS puppy and his sister Caeles It’s Showtime was BOB and BIS-6 puppy, Caeles Magical Mr Mistoffelees was 2nd best male, BIS-3 veteran, Dies Irae Caeles Du Manoir Des Ombreuses was BOS and Twan-San-Yen Excel Mio Amico Gucci was BOB, BIG 1 and BIS 7 and last but not least, Ninja, Eugenios Capricorn was BOB and BIG 3.
July came with tragedy. Nox went in labour and died. The worst day of my life, I think about her every day.
*I had 2 shows, Dies Irae Caeles Du Manoir Des Ombreuses was reserve after his half brother, and in Liege in the end of the month Casper got yet another reserve, but the CACIB will be inherited.
*Wendy, my groomer competed with Casper in the famous Golden Groomer competition and she went all the way to the top and won the entire thing!
August and time for a crazy roadtrip with 2 of my favourite friends Lena (knl Curvy) and Elisa (knl Berylline) drove all the way from Norway to Belgium where they stopped at my place for 2 days before we went on to Cahors, France where the French IG anniversary speciality was to be held!
*It was a great trip, good memories, good food and of course, great wine but on top if that all results that I will never forget. Caeles It’s Showtime won BEST IN SHOW Youth from the BABY CLASS!
*We got our 3rd visitor of the year, Lena and I made a little swap so when she drove back to Norway after the French speciality she took Ira with her to show him in Norway and I took her Esso, Ch Biscotti Esclusivo to show in the Netherlands.
*At Ira’s first show in Norway he won Best male, CAC and CACIB, finished his Norwegian and Nordic Championships and was qualified to compete at Crufts.
*Esso’s first show with me, he also won Best male, CAC and CACIB in Rottedam.
*Ira and Bling completed the requirements needed for their coursing licences, all that was needed was to get them officially measured and unfortunatly we didn’t get to it before Ira went for Norway and since Bling wouldn’t be competing until 2011 I didn’t have her measured.
It was time for the fall show in Luxembourg in september and Casper was of course entered, he just needed to get the CAC to become a champion... of course we were unlucky all the way and ended up 2nd in the class with the reserve CAC.
*Blondie, Caeles Late For a Date did well in Italy that same weekend, he won the CAC both days and was BOB at a double show in Livorno on Saturday.
*Caeles celebrated 10 years from our first litter on september 15. As everyone knows the litter does not carry our prefix but 2 from those litters have been instrumental behind some very well known dogs, producing champions and even world and european winners!
October was more busy as we had several shows, starting with Maastricht in the Netherlands where Dies Irae Caeles Du Manoir Des Ombreuses was Best male with his first CAC.
*Billy, Caeles Timing is Everything went to his first show in his new home, where he won BOB and BIS 3 puppy at the sighthound speciality in Celje .
*Biscotti Esclusivo was entered in Zwolle where he won best male, CAC and CACIB, thus needing just 1 more CAC for his Dutch championship 2 weeks later in Utrecht when he stood for his championship my luck’ o the reserve kicked in and he only got the reserve CAC.
*Dortmund fall shows, Casper only got the club CAC on Friday but on Saturday he was best male with the VDH CAC, making that his 3rd and only 2 to go
*Caeles Make My Day ended her year in style by going BOB with the VDH-CAC and CACIB and BIG 2!!
*Yet another guest came to us, this time a totally new breed. Phoenix the bichon. He’s going to Iceland but first he’s attending some shows with me on the other end of the lead. Phoenix is also known as PaRay’s Vogelflight O’ The Phoenix.
*Good news from Norway, Eugenios Posh Spice won BOB both days at a double show, while Esso’s daugther got the CAC and finished her Norwegian championship
In November we got the news from Norway that Elmo’s son Eugenios Amenhotep was BOB at a national show in Norway, and Joey’s daughter Eugenios Posh Spice was 2nd best bitch.
*Caeles Timing Is Everything, debuted in junior class in Zagreb, Croatia at a big double show where he went BOB (both BOB junior and BOB over the adults) both days, too young for the CACIB but he became a junior champion, Zagreb Winner 2010 and crufts qualified! Billy did not stay for the groups on either day.
*At the Nordic Winner show in Norway, Elmo’s son Eugenios Amenhotep was Best male, with the CAC and CACIB and the title Nordic Winner 2010, Ira was 2nd best male with the reserve. Only those 2 got CQ!
*And in Amsterdam at the winner show I had a superb weekend! Phoenix the bichon won BOB, his first CAC (double), CACIB, the Amsterdam Winner title and crufts qualification for 2011 or 2012! He was picked out among the 6 best in the group, but not placed. Casper was also entered and he kept on the tradition and won the reserve CAC witch qualifies as a full CAC at this show!
*I also owned the IG ring in Amsterdam, Esso went BOB got his last CAC so he became a Dutch Champion and Amsterdam Winner 2010 and then Penny got Best bitch in hefty competition so she got the junior CAC, the adult double CAC, and the titles Amsterdam Junior Winner and Amsterdam winner 2010!! Not bad for Penny who was at her first indoor show and just shy of 10 months!
December and 2 more shows. We started out in Wijchen with Phoenix who won the reserve CAC, but the full CACIB since the best male was a junior.
*Brussels Dog show was the last show of the year and everything was supposed to go great... I almost missed the bichon ring due to bad weather and roads, ran in and had Lena park the car as soon as I saw the hall, thankfully the organisation made the decicion to let the rings start later since so many people were late. Phoenix had competition from his very heavily titled, multi group winner and BIS winner half brother but he won the class and then he won the breed so Phoenix got the double CAC, CACIB and the Belgian Winner title along with crufts qualification and he’s qualified for the big champion gala in Brussels in december 2011!
*Ninja was also entered but I missed the ring by a few minutes as I had counted the dogs that were before us and not taken in the account that there would be some absent dogs. So when I came to the ring they were just finishing placing the open class. I got to take Ninja in just to see what the judge said about her and she got excellent and would have won the class! What a shame... will definitely be more careful next time!
*We welcomed the newest caeles babies,Bling gave birth to 3 healthy puppies on december 22nd and Stella gave birth to 7 pups on Christmas day!
18.1.2011 Lack of updates
I appologize for the lack of updates here in the news section. I am working on writing over what happened in the year of 2010, will hopefully post it this evening (I am a nighthawk) or tomorrow, along with some updates.
The puppyblog is updated regularly, tomorrow I hope to update it with semi stacks of Blings puppies, we were training today so it's still uncertain how it will be, but we'll try.
6.1.2011 no new updates
I'm sorry I haven't updated the puppy blog, I had everything set up today for photos and then we got unexpected guests so I couldn't get it done but promise I will do it tomorrow.
Ann and Rocky have opened their eyes, Tyson is making us all wait:) Some of the puppies from Stellas litter are starting to open their eyes, I will keep everyone updated.
I love this period, when the eyes open, they just get so much more personality and really start to develope as characters, I will probably change their names as they grow.. I don't think I have ever named puppies that early, and now I remember why.. :)
Keep checking for updates, I'll do my very best to take and put in new photos tomorrow!!!
31.12.2010 Happy New Year
* I'll put together a little report about how we did in 2010 in a few days.
* The puppyblog will be updated tomorrow with Stella's litter, they will be a week old so check that out in the afternoon.
