4.11.2016 - First training in field
Today we made a trip with Beitris, her sister Blaire and her owner Petr to Bystřice pod Hostýnem to visit trainer Milan Naď. Both girls proved theit hunting talent and worked fine well for their age. Both got a taste of holding a pheasant and both did well. We are looking forward to another training. Me and Beitris are already training holding of a fetch (dumbbell) and I have to say she is very clever and quick in the uptake.

Brodey Pearl Moravia - puppy cl. - VP1/2 (only on Saturday)
Bryson Zir Pearl Moravia - puppy cl. - P2/2 (only on Saturday)
Unfortunately Bryson didn't show his teeth, but he got nice critique anyway.
This was another show with a special meaning to me as on Saturday we entered breeding group in the main ring. We entrusted all of our four gordons to young handlers, who handled them professionally. Girls, thank you very much :-)
I was also happy that Ashley got 4th CAC in champion class on Saturday and became Czech Grand Champion. By this act Ashley is now retired from international and national shows and we will enter her at club shows only. As I promised her, she will now enjoy the great setter life on hunts and walks, which she loves the most :-) Ashley is my once in a lifetime dog and I know there will never be another like her. I hope her health will be fine and she will be with me for many years :-)

7.5.2016 - Club show MSKAO Slavkov u Brna
Ashley Princess Pearl Moravia - Exc.1/8 CAC, CLUB WINNER, BEST OF OPPOSITE SEX
Archie Princ Pearl Moravia - Exc.5/5 (with an amazing critique)
On Friday, when we prepared Ashley for club show together with my friend Marcela, I said to myself it would be just fine if Ashley, 3 months after giving birth, got excellent merit from Maureen Justice (UK). And it would be a miracle if she managed to repeat her highlight and got rCAC, as she did last two years. Unbelieveble happened and Ashley together with Jitka won her class and Ashley also became best bitch. Ashley was given CAC, Club winner and BOS. I accept all the titles with honour and humility because, though Ashley is the best for me, I would choose a another female, that I liked very much.
I am still over the moon from the experience as I have never dreamed to have Club winner title at home. Dream became reality.
Many thanks to organizers of the show, it was very well done. Also to the judge, who evaluated Ashley so high. The biggest thanks belongs to Jitka Svobodova (professional dog handler), who does miracles with Ashley. I wonder how Ashley changes and presents herself witch such a grace when she is handled by Jitka. I am moved by their eye contact (even with candies). She is never watching me this way.
Also thank you to all our fans, who wished us good luck and enjoyed the happines with us. Also thank you for your company and wonderful day and I am looking forward to the next event. Big thank you also belong to my family, who was with us.
Must not forget my big love. Ashley, thank you for being as you are. You are my sweetheart.
10.4. 2016 - First of the girls went to her new home
Destiny is unpredictable. On Friday booking for Blaire was canceled and today she left our home with her new family. She will live nearby in Chropyně u Kroměříže and will have a little buddy Honzík and also company of two cockerspaniel ladies. We wish you happy life, our little girl, bring only happines to your owners. Have a good time.
3.4.2016 - 6th - 7th week of our babies
Next twoo weeks passed. Babies grown up, they tear up and destroy everything ;) They are very curious and love to cuddle and they also know how to ask for it. We had a lot of visits last two weeks, for which I am very grateful. Extra cuddling hand is welcome always, especially in case they don't mind a bit of biting as well.
28.4.2016 we were again at the clinic and puppies were vaccinated and got tattoo in their ears (it is really in nowadays).
I have to say they were all very brave and our vet Mr. Pavel Čejka was very patient. It is a bit tricky to vaccinate and give a tattoo to a puppy when six other are hanging on your trousers :D :D
Also our last avilable boy found new home and all puppies are booked already ;)
But most of all I am happy that six of our seven puppies will bude hopefully used for hunting training and practice.
Many thanks for photos to Jana Grygarova.
15.3.2016 - 5th week of the seven warriors
We had a lot of visits by future owners this week. Of course our little devils made a show and proved how their sharp teeth are growing. We also let them outside, when the sun was shining to let them explore the world outside. But the weather is constantly crossing our plans. It is raining and freezing wind is blowing. So we still postpone their moving to outdoor kennel and we hope we will be able to do so during the weekend.
8.3.2016 - Our pups are 4 weeks
This week was very sad for us. Our lovely Bonibelle unfortunately paid for her curiosity and had an accident. Even though effrods of vets at the clinic she lost her batter for life 9th of March.
Sleep peacefully, our littlle girl, you will be in our hearts forever.
Many thanks to all, who supported us during these hard days.
The rest of the puppies were dewormed for the second time. Their weights are from 2,05 to 2,35 kg. They are now real blackguards and start to reveal the world. We already started with extra feeding even though mum Ashley has a lot of milk and takes very good care.
1.3. - 3 weeks
Another week of life of our babies is behind us. They grow up into angels with little devils inside as well. The are very social and love to cuddle and play. They are very clever and all of them learnt to pee and poo beside on a diaper. Also first teeth are growing fast so playing is already sometimes a bit painful.
Last boy is available for sale.
23.2.16 - Puppies are 14 days old
We are bringing you news about our litter B. 14 days ran fast and our puppies got their first deworming treatment. They are doing great, mum Ashley has a lot of milk and all eight babies are growing well. All puppies have their eyes open and first tries for games, barking, growling and biting began.
Also thier legs are stronger and some of them already manage to do whelping box cruise on four feet. We also checked their weight, which is now 1100 - 1400 g. We were told by our vet is very nice and ballanced litter.
All girls are booked and two boys are still available

14.2.2016 – Our puppies were given names
Today we made the final decision with Olinka (owner of the sire Zir) about names for our puppies. They all are doing well, gaining weight and mother Ashley is doing her best care. Sometimes it seems she is nursing them non-stop. She is amazing mother.
I would also like to thank to Zir's owner - Olga Vránová, who came to our place at 2 AM to watch and help with delivering the puppies. We are really glad that she and Zir are part of our family.
Names of our pups and their meaning can be found in „Puppies“
