:eek: Fantastic photo's Selena......really beautiful dogs all of them. The dutchies are very well built dogs looking at the pics. Sturdy shoulders and deep chest. I can see why you and Dick are proud of your dogs.

Is it difficult for you when the dogs go for example to England? I'm sure you are used to them being around. I guess the thing to do is not to build up too much a bond if you know they are going elsewhere?

I really like spike :D

Do you ever ship puppies to the USA? I see so many dogs with Van Leeuwen blood here, are they bred by other people crossed with other dogs then brought here? Or have you sent Van Leeuwen dogs over before?

Hi Mike,

I think they come from Atos (Rik Wolterbeek and Dian SanLorenzo who were living in Brooksville ).
Atos was a son of Robbie and a halfbrother of Rocky.
We aren`t shipping any dogs to the US or anywere else out of Europe. Our pups are picket up by their new owners.
All of our own bred dogs are sold in Holland/Europe. Also because of our breedingplan, so we can still use them in our plan.

greetz,

Dick

I have always said that I would be a horrible breeder LOL I'd get too attached to the puppies n keep them all, or if I did place them in homes, I'd want background checks, visitation rights, monthly photos and video etc :D :D Nobody allowed to buy a puppy if they live more than 50 miles away, :p

Reading all these things about the quality of dutch dogs and the training clubs you have available to you, as well as the potential for eating kroketen every day, and the best mussels in the world right around the corner in belgium, kinda makes me wanna move to Holland, but I'd freeze in the cold weather :D

I knew from the day she was born, she would go away within a year, so I tried not to bond as much. Would be sad though.

Just awesome, Selena, thanks so much for sharing. I am really enjoying all the great Dutch Shepherd pics in this forum. Not something I get to see a lot of up here in Minnesota.

That´s the reason they´re not going abroad...except 2-3 dogs who are in Belgium and England..about 4 hours travelling and with people we trust them to do well with \"our\" dogs.

haha, ik ben een Curacaoenaar, daar is het ook lekker warm :D En ze heben ook nog kroketen!

It's 23 degrees C here today, and clear blue sky, I love this time of year! Unfortunately soon summer will come and it'll rain and storm every day, then hurricane season will roll along and I get to watch everyone go crazy with panic while I sit at home and play with my dogs, laughing at all the idiots fill up their cars with gas and create a fuel shortage. Ahhh the 12 month cycle of living in Florida :D :D Maybe this year will be different :roll:

I think living in Florida is cheaper than Holland though -- you don't have to win the lottery :D You would probably do very well with breeding and training here too.

selena, do you have a pic of spikes sire? i'm wondering where the slope in his back comes from. it's sloped as much as a showline GSD and his dam looks to only have a bit of slope. most DS's i've seen have pretty straight backs like the mals. maybe it's just the angle that the picture was taken from?

It kind of does, but it also looks like he's standing on a hill, and his legs are pretty far behind him. :?:

Rocky (last pic) is the sire of Spike.

The picture was taken when somebody was a little bit to close, he´s ready to jump if necessary. I will look for another pic on my computer for you.
