As a few wil know, I had both my A litter siblings hipscored here in Norway last year. The results were not great, but luck would have it that I had the vetrinarian send the pictures abroad as well. Funnily enough, the same pictures in another country scored HD FREE on both my dogs.
This made me once again question the routines here, and so I had another vet X-ray my male. Yesterday the result came back.
And what a result. This is now the second country stating that the dog is HD FREE.
Iztaris Armaros HD B1 from Dobermann Verein!
NDK JUBILEE SHOW
This year, the Norwegian Dobermann Club celebrates 100 years.
I have not been able to attend most of the shows held this year, because of the C litter gang on the ground - but this weekend I could not miss!
for the first time in 7 years, I once more have a veteran to show, and a very special one at such. Diezel`s baby. My very own BBLC.
And she did not disapoint. BEST OF BREED VETERAN both days, and two new titles under her belt.
NDK JUBILEUMSVINNER VETERAN & NDK JUBILEE WINNER VETERAN
With her BOB veteran on saturday, she is now also NDK Veteran CLUB CHAMPION, gaining her crowning 3`rd veteran CAC!
Her children also did a few laps, and on saturday I showed my very first progeny group - getting the Honour prize for them from a breed specialist was a great moment.
Two of the B litter juniors also placed 3`rd i couple class on saturday, and my own two A litter babies placed 3`rd on sunday!
Thank you everyone of my puppybuyers for coming to join in the madness, and for taking such great care of your pups!
We may not have placed in for best males/females, but we showed some great dogs, who 3 out of 5 just needs to mature and grow,
and the other two needs to bounce back from puppies and ...well...Marco..hahaha!
I love my dude - and who knows? Maybe when he is veteran, he will have all 4 feet on the ground...?
GPV VETERAN WINNER
Having enterred this show before the puppies were born, Camilla and I made plans to "just drive and do an allnighter" . If I managed to get someone to babysit ofcourse. My brother was up for the task, and I could arrange for meeting up with potential puppybuyers too. So inbetween the 30 hours of driving, stopping for a few minutes rest, talking and meeting up with everyone - we also had a few laps in the ring! Two of my B litter males were shown in juniorclass, and their owners showed their dogs themselves! I am very proud of you all, and I know that with a bit more practice the top results will come. Myself I showed Mama Brown, and she was best veteran and 3`rd best female total! I am so proud of my girl, and now she only need one more club CAC for veteran CH.
On the picture is her with the judge, breed specialist Mr Rada Istvan.
PUPPIES ARE BORN
This has been a long awaited litter, and finally 4 brown males, 2 black males, 2 brown females and 3 black females saw the light of day may 2`nd 2022.
After 18 hours of birth, we were all very tired and sadly we have lost 2 puppies.
But the remaining gang is eating, growing and squeaking like champions!
Yesterday two of our dogs attended their first show of the season, and they both did great!
My old girl Vilje, was for the first time in veteran class where she placed second, and got her first veteran club CAC! She then proceeded to place 4`th in best female competition!
Chavo (Iztaris Balrog) had his very first outing in juniorclass, and what a start! He finished the day 3`rd best male total, with the reserve CAC!
Happy breeder and owner today.
Yesterday, we were a quick visit to the vet, to see if our hopes were true. And they certainly were! The second we started, the first puppy appeared and we could easily count to 8 or 9. I stopped there, as now I know there are a good number in the making.
So here it is! The very first picture of one of our C litter gang!

HAPPY NEW YEAR
As the new year begins, so do our annual heart testing.
I decided to start in january instead of february, as my girl is hopefully getting her first litter this spring, and just in case I wanted to have the EKG holter done.
This was her third EKG holter, and like previous years, my girl is healthy and fine.
Results are on her pages HERE
