Third week of life: Primus is a lucky boy and able to move in with a litter of English Setter puppies that is one week younger. He was accepted without any problems. IMG_7733 IMG_7690 IMG_7678 IMG_7675 IMG_7661 IMG_7653 IMG_7638 IMG_0469 IMG_0466 IMG_0460

 

Fourth week of life: Primus is growing and exploring. Amica is doing well too. She did not miss her singleton puppy too much.

6th week old now. Primus aka “Rocket” is full of energy. His coat is so fluffy. He played with our 16 year old senior girl Nelle (Nelleke-Lara van de Kooikerexpres) today.

It is with deep sadness, that our first born, our precious singleton puppy, Rocket died in a car accident right before turning one year of age.  He will never be forgotten. Our hearts reach out to his family who misses him dearly.

Please go to litter plans for our current breeding plans.

 

We are looking for performance (i.e agility and search and rescue) homes for upcoming litters in the future. To be considered contact us.
