For those of you who are interested, there was a cover done by Isidro of Laelaps with a nice bitch from Vom Kaiserstuhl. Soon puppies can be expected out of this combination. We are very excited to see the offspring!
Today the lovely Isidro of Laelaps became Best of Breed and Winner 2022 at the Dutch Winner Show in Leeuwarden.
With this result he also becomes Dutch National Champion. We would like to thank judge John Williams (NL) for thinking so highly of him.
And we want to congratulate his owners with this fantastic accomplishment.
Today I had the honour of judging the Young Dog day for Bull Terrier Club Belgium.
It was a very nice day and being able to see the potential for the future of bullterriers was a real joy.
On this day I was invited together with Sophie de Beer to judge the Clubmatch for the Bullmastiff Vereniging Nederland in Benschop (Utrecht).
I was honored to be judging the bitches during the morning and then allowed to discuss the overall winners with my collegue in the afternoon.
Today two of our dogs competed in the Dr. Cohen Memorial Trophy show organised by N.B.T.C.
They both qualified for this show by winning multiple CACs during the previous 12 months.
Sadly neither won any prizes, but we were happy to show them off to the public once again.
Congratulations to the winners.
This weekend all of the biggest Bull Terrier lovers in the world were present in Egmond aan Zee (as far as Covid would enable them to be there).
This was to be the new location of the Country Competition, organised by the NBTC, which was organised in Leiden in recent years.
The Netherlands had really great results this year, winning 3 out of 4 classes.
Our bitch, Iphigenia of Laelaps, was reserve for the Dutch team in the class bitches under 2 years.
Today was the day of our annual reunion and we were very happy with the turn out.
We were also very lucky with the weather, because it was a nice sunny day.
As is customary during our reunion we had a drink, played some games, had some laughs and finished up with a nice meal.
Below are some pictures to give you an impression of the day itself.
We want to thank everyone for attending and we hope to see all of you next year too!
Finally we’re ready to announce that our annual Of Laelaps Reünie will be happening on the 24th of October! (Unless the rules change again…)
We have found a nice location where we can play games and have a bite to eat afterwards.
The program will be as follows;
14.00 h – Reception with a drink
14.30 h – Start games
(for example; agility, dress up, crate-run, frog leap)
17.00 h – BBQ (optional)
Please let us know if you’d like to join on the BBQ, because we have to reserve in advance. (Expenses are € 20,- per person (children for half price.)
We hope you’re just as excited as us!
Let’s just hope we’re lucky with the weather!!
Of Laelaps Bullterriers
Finally we have the DNA results back for our puppies from last litter. We did a double mating to our Genesis of Laelaps with a very young dog, Isidro of Laelaps (9 months old) who is a grandson of Emred Devils Spy, and an older dog, Rhydaman Gold Medal (9 years old) who is a son of Emred Devils Spy.
Apparently the DNA was so similar that the laboratory had to re-test the DNA of 4 of the pups. As it turns out 2 are descendants of Rhydaman Gold Medal (the first two white puppy bitches; Justitia of Laelaps and Jocaste of Laelaps) and the others are all descendants of Isidro of Laelaps.
