After a calm but cosy start of the New Year – during which my dogs were absolutely ignorant about the local fireworks.......…..we started the new year on January 06 with Djaya de Besos her 1st show in Belgium. We went there to try and win a Junior point for the Belgian Junior title.
But this young lady decided to follow her mother's and her grandmother's example.......and at the very young age of merely 9 months old immediately made ….BEST OF BREED.....
Look at a somewhat stunned Djaya with her 1st Belgian show-trofee.....

Two weeks thereafter her mum I Besos di Ròsa and her 'auntie' Rubí had obligations in a double show in Catalunya – Spain and she also was allowed to participate – a training project. Day 1 she showed mum her potential and made Best of Breed and even nr 4 in Group 1!

Djaya de Besos was the Best

Day 2 mum put her back in place and made BOB herself. Auntie Rubí was everyone's favourite with the Gos on day 1 : she not only made Best Veteran but also was Best Female! After a short but lovely holiday > back home to share this wonderfull news with a selected group.


Before you know it, it's February. We started on the 1st with the birthday of our Ròsa Ke-sera and her 9 siblings: these ten turned 8 and doing so reached being “Veterans”! Sad to tell the litterwalk had to be cancelled and postponed due to the weather circumstances in combination with the km some owners had to drive : but, safety first!

On February 2nd our Djaya de Besos was to show herself again : this time in Eindhoven – NL
Judge mrs R. Lochs. We went there hoping for a 2nd Junior point. And what did the little lady do?
She not only made Best Junior, but also Best Female and then....Best of Breed!!
And as a cherry on the cake ..she made nr 10 in Group I! Wwooww!!

Djaya de Besos also the Best in Eindhoven

And now you are in the belief that our Djaya is an oh-so-sweet puppy and a little showgirl. On the contrary I can assure you!!!!  Going home I first had to buy us a parking ticket ( € 17,50!!! ), I put it on the passenger seat....wanted to pick it up again and.....found Djaya eating it on the backseat.....HELP!!!!....Just payed € 17,50 …... That's also our Djaya.....

Because Rubí's B-miracles on 01.30 celebrated their 2nd birthday, we on 02.11 had a wonderfull Litterwalk followed by a nice lunch and lots to talk about.

Rubí's B-miracles – 2 years old

The weekend thereafter our little crumb participated in 2 shows in Gent – Belgium > she 2 x made BOB Junior + 2 x BOS and …..we can now ask for her 1st title : Belgian Junior Champion!
Our new starlet.....

Djaya de Besos – getting ready to show

Finally at the end of the month – on the 25th – we had a birthday-litterwalk with – due to the flue, severe illness or other birthday celebrations - only a few of the M-miracles of our Ròsa Ke-sera > already 3 years old! A wonderfull but FREEZING COLD walk.

It was a special month and that is what it was!

Bringing a closure to this month > we were to experience the birth of the E-miracles of our Ròsa Ke-sera and her lover Baloo : 2 hands full she gave us, 10 healthy and strong miracles,
3 pretty girls and 7 robust lads.
For some loving families puppies are still available

With such splendid wheather you cannot but love to work in the garden.
The girls this time were not in the mood to help but they later were willing to pose for a foto

This complete month ofcourse was all about the expected arrival of Ròsa Ke-sera's new – and last – miracles. Ròsa Ke-sera who managed to completely change our October-plans : but that's 'nature'!  Even though we did not want to cancel all, so :

october 15, 2017 
A combined and somewhat early ( both litters are from November ) birthday-litterwalk with the C-miracles of Ke-sera de Cocó's Hijo and the R-miracles of Rubí.
The puppies from both litters will all be 6 years old next month
Due to the changed timing there this time were less participants but it never the less was super
We also had the most wonderfull wheather one can ask for and our 'caterar'participants even managed to still bring sangria > delicious!!

october 5-9, 2017
After some hesitation, we decided to yes go to Spain where I Besos di Ròsa, to obtain the Spanish title, still needed to win an obligatory point in Talavera de la Reina
Very pregnant Ròsa Ke-sera ofcourse did not join us but was allowed to stay over at 'Family Pip' where she was well taken care of. To be able to enter the showground all dogs needed to be entered for the show, so.....that's what we did! Ke-sera de Cocó's Hijo and Rubí both in Veteran Class < a Class they both won, so they were to appear in the Ring of Honour.
Rubí there even was selected with the Best 6 Veterans ( out of appr. 30 ).
Djaya participated in Puppy Class > a good training!
But I Besos di Ròsa...she had to go for the real thing, and she did! She won the obligatory point and made Best of Breed.
The title has now been asked for and confirmed, only needs to be received.
Unfortunately we ended our stay in Spain less good : with falling down the stairs in our Casa Rural! It was a beautifull staircase and the falling went very gracefully but still.....
It then is hard to have to drive home 2000 km, most certainly when it later shows that the wrist has two fractures.  Ah well, we'll survive...again.

beginning of SEPTEMBER 2017

To a show! In Luxembourge : with all 5, Rubí, Ròsa Ke-sera and Djaya were entered.
Rubí and Ròsa hadn't been showing for 3 ½ years and it was Djaya's first time.
And they were fantástic! Really.
Rubí made Best Veteran and won the titles Lux Veteran Ch and Benelux Veteran Winner '17
Ròsa made Best of Breed and won the titles Luxembourge Ch and Benelux Winner '17
Djaya made Best Minor Puppy and the judge said she performed excellent for a first time.
So all 3 were to show themselves in the Ring of Honour that day


August became special, for ….... Ròsa Ke-sera had a loversdate – her last one
All the way to Sweden the journey took us
Now it's hoping fot healthy Schapendoespuppies by the end of October 2017

JULY 2017

In July we had the 1st-birthday-litterwalk with the È-puppies of Ròsa Ke-sera.
Wonderfully good walking-weather, very happy frolicing doggies and a load of nice and happy people.
It was wonderfull to see everyone again

As is a custom with us, we in July and August also visited the D-miracles of our ever-so-special I Besos di Ròsa and the Í-miracles of our Gos-lady Rubí. This meant travelling all over the country > we have driven a total of appr. 1600 km to do so.
What we encountered made me very happy : happy families and free-spirited, happy, healthy doggies >> all in the busines of getting new teeth.
I am allready looking forward to our “we-are-7-months-old-litterwalk”!

On July 18...........we celebrated our present eldest Ke-sera de Cocó's Hijo's birthday : she became 11 years old.
We spoiled her rotten and as usual danced on 'her' song : “Que sera”!
She even received a special present, for the day before her birtday she for the 2nd time made great-grandmother : I Besos di Ròsa's in Finland living brother became father to 6 puppies.

Our own D-miracle Djaya de Besos this month started Puppy-school! : correct, we allways start a little later > first all vacinations ( + in this case our holiday ) and then of to school.
Does she like it?..................She lóves it!! End of August she even received her first diploma.

January to June 2017

Here we are again! Haven't brought you news for quiet a while, so high time to catch op

January – and also the year 2017 – started of with two lovers dates, for the last time for our Gosgirl Rubí and for the first time for our oh-so-special Besos.

Then came February, when we celebrated the 7th birthday of the R-litter of Ke-sera de Cocó's Hijo and thus also of our very own Ròsa Ke-sera – already 7 yeard old, time goes too fast

Yes....and then....came March and everything had to be put in place for all of a sudden 2 litters very close after eachother : for that we didn't have all what was needed so we rapidly bought a second birthingbox and special lamp. Just a few days after everything was put in place and ready, the miracles of Rubí presented themselves : her last puppies and at the same time the last puppies of the breed Gos d'Atura Català to be born in our house : beautifull twins > an adorable lad and a girl with lots of temperament.

Only 4 days thereafter it was Besos her turn to for the first time become a mum and she did that ….. as a professional! She made the world richer with 8 beautifull miracles : 3 robust lads and 5 pretty girls.

For all 10 we had more than enough interested families, Extra special these litters also were, because – For Rubí it was her last litter Ánd ….. they were the last Gos d'Atura Català puppies to be born in our house – For I Besos di Ròsa it was her first litter And these miracles also were the first of the sixth generation Cocódotjes!

March, April and the first week of May were filled with helping both mothers, to help raise the miracles > with that the other adult dogs by the way were the best help one could wish for! It once again was a great joy to experience how comfortable they all were with eachother and how they walked in and out the birthboxes.

Also almost daily we had 1 or 2 of the future families/owners visiting us and ofcourse there also was a lot of interest from family and friends. You see there was lots to do. But before we realised it it was time and within a mere 5 days they all left the house. We – as allways – enjoyed these miracles, but it was just as pleasant to be amongst eachother again and making the house ours again, AN EMPTY HOUSE!! Clean and smelling nice again and ... só much space > as enjoyable as it was : this felt good too

For a really long time there was doubt to whether yes or no do it........but also of this sixth generation Schapendoesjes - Cocódotjes-miracles – one was allowed to stay. In the litter she had the littername 'Rooie Sien', in real life her name is Djaya de Besos Van Hoefflaecken's Cocó. We call her Djaya but to be true …..'little devil' fits her better.....pfff, she is a handfull.

June : time for us to get things going again! So, why not go on a holiday? No sooner said than done : at the same time a good testcase for our now youngest : Djaya.... We had a wonderfull time and on June 14 we there in Spain celebrated the 8th birthday of our Gala's A-litter an doing so, of our very own Rubí : who now also is a veteran!

Because we hadn't doen so for a really long time / years : we entered for two shows in Catalunya : in Martorell < we after all haven't been a member of the ACUCC since 2002 for nothing. We only entered Besos. And my!! That was more than enough : for our very own and oh-so-special little lady, less than 3 months after giving birth to and raising 8 puppies, was fantástic!! On the 1st day this lady was placed nr 2 in Group I and the next day she made nr 3 in Group I. Both judges adored her and even cuddled her, even so that people sitting at the side talked about it. Our very special Besos, that is what she is. She also participated in a Clubshow in Sant Fruitós de Bages.....outside, warm and in the drizzle > a bit of a mess that was, but very cosy and meeting up with old friends again.

My special Besos – and that is what she is – ........takes after her greatgranddad Hijo more and more by the day > my one-and-only, my machissimo-mio Hijo. It once again shows : her grandmother Ke-sera de Cocó's Hijo is rapidly getting old after her daddy Hijo died, and it's Besos where she seeks and finds her comfort and who looks after her > só touching! Hijo also allways was the comforter in de family

The last day of June we arrived home again …. more news next time
