Almost time to say goodbye to the year 2010

Our Year in Pictures:

First row:
1 - January Picking up Cardie at Bonnie's place in Florida, I had such a great time there with Bonnie and Anna
2 - February Bella's litter was born, 4 boys and 1 girl ♥
3 - April We lost our dear friend Bill who was killed in a motorcycle accident by a drunk truck driver, we miss him very much.
4 - April We met Solveig, a new friend for life ♥

Row 2
1 - May reminded us once again that we don't live forever and Amy's owner Femke had to say goodbye to her (Amelia Maxime of the Hunters Pride).
2 - May We attended our friends Kate and Vaseks wedding in the Czech Republic (Z Jerene Kennel) with our dogs.
3 - June We were deeply honored when our friends from the Z Jerene kennel allowed us to have Wizard (Lemosa Hopes Mandrake) stay with us. We took him to shows in Holland, Belgium, Luxemburg, Germany and Switzerland and he was excellent!! Many times Best of Breed and even a 9th best in group!!
4 - August Daisy had her first litter, 3 beautiful little boys ♥

Row 3
1- July This beautiful girl Minou (Bella Fairy Woods of Mayo Land) was given to us by our friends Tina and Christof in Germany, we are so grateful ♥
2 - September Minou had her first litter with us, 2 boys and 5 girls ♥
3 - October Our friend Caroline (Jack Beauty kennel France) surprised us with a visit and came to stay with us for the weekend. It was great seeing her again.
4 - October Dottie won her first trophy. She was best puppy and went 7th best pup in show! Lia, Edwin & Zahira and myself of course were so very proud!

Row 4
1 - November This is our latest addition little Miss Finna (Minou x Wizard) ♥
2 - December We received bad news Lizzy('s Mad Max of the Hunters Pride) is not doing well, we hope Jolanda and her family can keep her just a little while longer with them in reasonable good health.
3 - December Our Max (Antal Maximus of the Hunters Pride) had some offspring too in the year 2010 and this little beauty named Miss Moon went 3rd best terrier in group this month!! We are so proud!
4 - December My parents! Without their help we would not be able to do everything we do. They are always there to help us look after the dogs and there are no words to express how we feel about that ♥.

And that also goes for our co-owners who give their love to 'our' pups and help us in so many ways. We are so grateful for everything and we thank you for being part of our growing Hunters Pride family! ♥

Our pup-owners who we proudly select with much care, we feel blessed when we receive your cards, emails, pictures and phone calls to talk about you and the pups, we really appreciate it. ♥

To Jolanda who is always there to help us and to answer our questions, we couldn't do all this with out her. ♥

And last but not least this facebook page and it's followers, we never expected to have over 1000 people joining us here but you did and it's been a blast! Thank you!!!

Finally - Update

It's about time I finally write someting on our blog again! Fact is now that we have facebook it's much easier to place updates there. It's great to see how much everyone is in enjoying our facebook page too, not even a year after starting this page we already have over 1000 people who joined our page!
In the meantime Daisy and Minou had their litters in August en September, we are so happy all went well. Daisy had 3 boys, Minou 2 boys and 5 girls. All have left now to be with their new owners.
We love the fact that so many of them stay in touch and sent us pictures every now and than.
The lovely Wizard -Lemosa Hopes Mandrake- stayed with us for a couple of months, his owners picked him up last November and we had a great weekend together. We are going to fly out to Prague next month to bring Wizard back with us. He will attend some more shows here and hopefully Pinky will have his puppies spring 2011! Really looking forward to that!
We went to Florida for 3 weeks and stayed with Bonnie (Edison Parson and Jack Russell kennel) for a couple of days. It was so great to see her again and for Sandor to finally meet her in person. We had a great time with her and it was hard to say goodbye again hopefully we will see eachother again soon!

We would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a GREAT 2011!!!

Here are just a few of the many pictures we have received, many more can be found on our Facebook site.
