24-06: We had an ultrasound with Noomi and she is pregnant! We're expecting the litter to be born in week 30.
11-02: A few days ago I arrived in New York City, to drop off puppy Volt (of our Energy-litter) and to show a granddaughter of Svarri at the Westminster Show! We had a blast, Pikku became Best of Breed! It was a very exhausting trip, but it was a dream come to, an adventure I'll always remember.
15-12: Wow, wow, wow! We had such a great day at the biggest annual show of the Netherlands, the Amsterdam Winner Show. Kai became BOB, Niffy got 2VP and her sister Kensi got 1VP. We also entered for the breeder groups, which was judged by Norwegian judge Mr. Leif Ragnar Hjorth. He was so impressed by the high quality, that he placed us 1st BEST IN SHOW breeders group! This is the first time in history world wide that a group of Lundehunds is placed first at an all-breed CACIB show. I'm proud, super proud!
23-11: Hazel gave birth to two puppies! Meet our E-litter!
14-10: Today we were at the Dutch Specialty and we had a blast! I entered Kai, Niffy and Svarri. Kai became BOB with 1Exc + CAC. Niffy became best puppy with 1VP and Svarri became best veteran with 1Exc. We also entered Kai + Niffy together in brace class, which means we had to go to the main ring 4 times! First time was brace, they did actually quite nice for a first time, but we weren't selected. After that main ring judging for Best Baby and Best Puppy started, Niffy won Best Baby/Puppy in Show! After that we had to wait for Best Veteran judging, Svarri wasn't selected. And then the biggest thing: The Best in Show. My lovely home bred boy won BEST IN SHOW! Needless to say that I'm extremely proud of this accomplishment. He keeps amazing me. This will be one of his last shows though, it's now time for Niffy to continue promoting the breed.
29-09: Today I went to the Dog Show Maastricht with Kai & Niffy. Kai became BOB with 1Exc, CAC + CACIB, Niffy became Best Baby with a very very promising. No love for us in the main ring this time, but both behaved so well in the ring!
23-09: Today at the Keesachtigen en Poolhonden Show we had lots of success:
Vivid Dancer of Vorkosmia 'Niffy' got 1VP and was best baby. We got a beautiful baby pink + baby blue rosette and it's so darn cute! Her sister became second in baby class, also with a VP. Our showboy Viking Blood of Vorkosmia "Kai" got 1Exc, CAC + Best Male & BOS. His sister was BOB. It was a fun day and I'm so thankful for the judges who appreciate the dogs I've bred. After the show, when I came home, Kai mated Hazel! So hopefully we'll have a litter in November!
12-08: We went to the 3 shows during the World Dog Show weekend, Kai got 1Exc on all days and on 2 of the days he got resCACIB. He was such a good boy, so proud of him!
27-06: We decided to keep a girl from our Dragonflies litter. This wasn't planned at all, but sometimes you have to follow your heart. "Welcome" Vivid Dancer of Vorkosmia!
24-06: Today at the IDS Hanzeshow, Kai was BOB with 1Exc, CAC + CACIB. And, on top of that, he was placed 3rd in group!! Breed judge was Thomas Rohlin (DK), group judge was Svein Barne Helgesen (NO).

15-04: Today at the IDS De Utrecht, Kai was BOS with 1Exc, CAC + CACIB. His sisters Senja was BOB, but that's not all, she also was 1st BEST IN GROUP! I'm a VERY proud breeder, the C-litter was such a succesful litter, and I'm sure there's more to come! Senja is owned by Arjen Davidse.
05-04: We went to the vet for an ultrasound and we saw little puppies in Noomi her tummy! The puppies will be born between the 6th and the 9th of May.
09-03: Mating has taken place between Noomi & Frontpage Frey.
03 & 04-03: Wow, we just had 2 amazing shows! On the first day of the IDS Martinidogshow Groningen, Viking Blood of Vorkosmia "Kai" was Best Male, Best of Breed, CAC + CACIB, judged by Mona Selbach (Norway). In group judging he was selected with best 6! He wasn't placed, but it was a very special moment for us, we never achieved that! Group judge was Eva Liljekvist Borg (Sweden).
On the second day of the IDS Martinidogshow Groningen, we got the same results: Viking Blood of Vorkosmia "Kai" was Best Male, Best of Breed, CAC + CACIB, judged by Leon Scholten (The Netherlands). In group judging he was selected with best 6 and was placed 3rd BEST IN GROUP! Apparently he made a good impression, the group judge said the breed usually doesn't get placed often, but Kai was very pretty & showy. Kai was very tired, but he showed his socks off! Group judge was Mona Selbach, the same judge that judged the breed the day before.
27-09: The 24th of September we went to the Scandia Specialty. WE had a very succesful day, Kai became 2nd Best Male, Svarri was Best Female and BOS, our youngest girl Hazel was 3rd best bitch. They were all first in their class.
But, the best part of the day was the brace judging. Svarri & Kai were BEST BRACE IN SHOW!
11-09: And again the girls aren't pregnant.. We will now change or plans completely, we will keep you posted when we've met new males.
16-08: Sometimes plans are there to change. I am very happy to announce that both Noomi and Hazel mated with Firehillborder Avalon Norsk "Finn". We planned to use another male for Noomi, but sadly that didn't work this time. Finn is a lovely male with a great character. He will be 6 years old in November and doesn't have any puppies yet. We will do an ultrasound in the second week of September.
03-08: Kai his eyes are checked by an eye specialist and his eyes are free of genetic diseases.
30-07: Today we went to the IDS in Rotterdam (NL). I only entered Kai, we had trained a lot to get him to behave on the table again, and he behaved great! The judge made Kai Best of breed, earning a CAC, CACIB & a new title: Benelux Winner NL'17! He now also has enough points for his Dutch championship title.
15-04: Today at the International Dog Show in Goes (NL), Poet's Dream of Vorkosmia "Senja", owned and showed by Arjen Davidse, became BOB. In the group she was selected and she was placed on the 3rd PLACE IN GROUP! Breed and group judge was Jos Dekker. I'm a super proud breeder!
27-02: Sadly both girls aren't pregnant. We'll try again next heat.
01-02: The girls came in heat a bit earlier than expected. Luckily both stud owners were very flexible, so it was no problem. We're hoping to welcome 2 litters at the end of March. At the end of February we'll do an ultrasound to see if the ladies are really pregnant!
11-12: What a nice last show of this year! Kai became Best of Breed at the Amsterdam Winner 2016, adding 2 new titles to his name! The groupjudge (Ms. A. Indergaard from Norway) said she liked him very much. Sadly Kai didn't behave on the table, we REALLY need to train a bit more for that!
09-10: At the Scandia Clubmatch today we had a very friendly judge. Last week Kai had a bad experience with the table, and this judge really tried to make him feel comfortable again. Thanks to her patience, Kai became best male with an 1exc. Hazel got a 1VG, because she didn't show the typical movement. Senja (Poet's Dream of Vorkosmia) got 1Exc, BOB and BEST IN SHOW!! So proud..
01-10: Kai got a 1VG at the IJsselshow in Zwolle. Kai had a bad experience so he didn't want to be touched. The judge really liked him, but she gave an 1VG because of his behavior. Now we have to train a lot to make him more confident again on the table..

04-08: New puppy plans! We're hoping there will be a new 'of Vorkosmia'-litter in October. COI of this litter will be 0,513% in 6th generation and only 7,52% in the 10th generation. Click here to see the pedigree on PawPeds.

11-06: I've been working very hard on the Dutch version of the site. There are still some pages that need to be translated.
22-04: Noomi is in heat, exactly when I expected her to be! Although the Dutch Kennel Club allows a first litter at the age of 16 months, I think it's too early for Noomi to have a litter. Her eyes will be tested this Summer. We expect her to be in heat again in December, we will see if she's ready for puppies by then.

08-01: The Dutch Lundetreffen 2013 will be on Saturday the 24th of August in Sevenum (NL).

On September the 22nd Scandia will organise a Specialty for all Scandinavian spitzbreeds, it's a show with double points. The 28th and 29th of September there will be a Back to Back show (= 2 all breed shows in one weekend!). So it is possible to become dutch champion in one week!
