Lillian and Essex Puppies

Keeshond Puppies Are Fun

Well at least they have fun with each other! Playing is a big thing with them and now they can play for about a half hour and then collapse and go to sleep. 

If if you are inquiring about a puppy through the blog I cannot see your email address. Please email me at dlnpoconsult@gmail.com or call me at 440-273-3078. We do have a male to place in this litter as one puppy buyer dropped out.

Puppies are ready to go at eight weeks so you need to call soon and make arrangements to come and see them and their mom. I can promise that they are entertaining.

Ryan with Silver Female on Table - He looks so serious!

Grand Champion Foxfair Essex

Essex's First Litter

Well he waited a little bit to have his first litter, but Essex was a little unlucky in love. His first two bitches were, umhmm, lets just say "older", and had reached the end of their reproductive years. This time with the lovely Lillian "Ch. Foxfair Silent Screen Star, we have seven babies. Both parents are of course very proud. Essex and Jeanne will be coming to see them in a week or so.

Maybe we can even get pics of Mom and Dad and babies. That would be something! Their puppy party is planned for Sunday, February 17th. People will be coming from near and far, by plane and car, just to see the babies. Well that will be an exciting day!

Audrey and Jeanne Agility Video

Ch. Foxfair Audacious and Jeanne Buente Running a Qualifying Agility Run

Here is a video of Audrey powering through an agility course over the jumps. I love watching this as you can tell when she really turns on the speed. She loves agility and you can really tell in this video. Audrey is sired by Am. Can. Ch. Vandaban Wessex, Eng. Imp. Jeanne also trained her dam Emma in agility and she is a multiple title holder.

Keeshonden are very good in agility due to their high level of intelligence, quickness and ability to turn, and of course their love of food rewards! One of the first dogs of all breeds to hold the MACH title for several years in row was not a Golden Retriever or a Sheltie or a Border Collie - NO - it was Keeshond, MACH Molly, who held the MAC 17 title on her retirement.

Lillian and Essex Babies Have Arrived


A Very Proud and Happy Lillian


So, here they are seven wonderful little Keeshond babies, five little boys and two little girls. Well not soo little they were average weights for Kees puppies. 

Lillian like the champ she is delivered the first six babies in a little over two hours. There were five babies in one horn and two in the other. The last one to arrive, number seven, took an additional 

hour. This, of course, was meant to make me worry - no need though. The last baby was delivered in fine shape and after some suctioning perked right up. 

There was some concern about Lillian as a mother, she is a rather pampered and prissy show dog, who likes to do things her own way. Still a determined perfectionist, she took these same traits into the whelping box. She had decided to have the cleanest and best cared for puppies in town. So much so that our system of a little colored nail polish to mark the puppies was useless. She just licked it off, no messy nail polish on her babies! Thank you. 

Babies are now four weeks old and their mother spends less time with them, but is still very attentive about their care. When one of the babies fell between the whelping box and the wall at one week old she woke me up at 3:00 am to rescue him. Another time at 3 weeks one boy managed to climb out of the box. Again, she came to get me putting her front feet on my lap and running back to the pen. The little guy was in the middle of the floor and very insulted about being in the wrong place! The only thing is she is wondering what role Essex has in this affair, since he had his fun he has not been heard from since!

Andy's Puppy Days


Puppy Match and WRKC

Andy's first show was a puppy match held in conjunction with the Grand River Kennel Club show in Painesville, Ohio. We also had a BKC match that day. Debbie Loesser had gone to pick up her new puppy bitch with Jeanne Buente and so Jordyn was at the show for Andy to play with. As we held the meeting the two puppies Andy and Jordyn played in the grass. Jordyn decided to dig a hole and when Andy went over to sniff it, she growled at him, ever the gentleman he just curled up under my chair while the meeting went on.

They were about 9 weks old very close in age being only a week or so apart. Little did we know that day that they would grow up to have a litter with 4 Champions, two specialty winners and a dog that would win WD at the National. 

Andy had never been on lead before, but he trucked into the ring with Jeanne and showed like he had been doing it all his life. That was about as much training as he every got. He was just a natural and did not need to go to classes as he seemed to understand the lead right from the beginning.

He wasn't 6 months old until December of that year so the first show he could attend was Western Reserve Kennel Club. This is one of the largest indoor shows in country and we also have the Buckeye Keeshond Club specialty there every year. Typically we do not start puppies at that show for their first experience. There are several reasons for this. First, it is huge with over 2,000 in the building for four days. Second, the specialty keeps everyone busy. Third, it is very noisy, etc. etc. So, Jeanne and I talked about it. 

We decided to enter him because if we didn't he would have to sit out until Spring when our shows started again. We thought if we ever had a puppy that could handle a show like this it would be him. We entered him at the show and he performed very well, again as if he was an old hand. The noisy, other dogs, sounds and sights did not bother him in the least. After his class I took him back to his crate where he had a soft mat, water, chewie and a toy. When I checked on him 20 minutes later he was fast asleep. 

The headline from the weekend, the young prince goes to the dog show and finds it very much to his liking!.
