I had three littes in the beginning of 2000. When the T's left my kennel it became quiet. This silence is necessary for me, the work with the puppies, the socializeing take a lot of time even if the dogs help a lot. But the socializing to environmental influences has to be done by the breeder. And the socializing to humans, to children and to other animals, too.
It is a responsible task which I love to do again and again but in the meantime I also enjoy the times between the litters. Times to keep contacts to owners, future owners, breeders and so on. And time for my adult dogs.
I wanted to do this mating last year already but Peppino was still too young, so that I had to postpone my plans. The dogs of my P-litter (Peppino etc) have a very pure white and a wonderful temperament. Peppino is successful on shows and got only first places as well as his brother Perry.
Both dogs have different bloodlines so that I continue with my work to avoid inbreeding if possible. I am glad to have dogs who are carrying different lines, a situation that do not have many breeders.
The names for the 11 puppies were a quite big problem. Meanwhile the future owners have found their names - and their dogs. The following "Hohensyburg-U-dogs" will appear on shows and so on:
Uljana, Ulana, Umira, Una Akita, Unique Snowflake, Urmel und Urielle von der Hohensyburg und die "Jungs":
In 1999 Kimberly was second (of 8) on the main breeding show of the BVWS. On other shows she was also quite successful.
He was very successful on shows, his most important success was the win of the Open Class on the EURO 2000 in Aachen. It was a common show of the leading clubs for White Shepherds in Germany. His class had 15 participants, Peppino could beat them all.
Kimberly's 11babies in TV and newspapers! I have a quite good contact to the local newspapers. As a litter of 11 is rare, I gave them a call. Some days later the local newspaper published a photo of my U's. I got some calls because of this photo but what happened afterwards, seems to be a dream... but it is true.
It started with SAT1 (which is a nationwide TV-station, one of the most popular ones). They asked for a date to make a short film of the puppies. This date was on March 2nd. The puppies were 4 weeks old. The "new" puppy photos have also been taken at this afternoon. It was exciting although I HATE interviews. The dogs were friendly and behaved perfectly.
Two days later, on Monday, a big newspaper called "BILD" came to make photos and article. This date was much more stressy, they were perfectionists. The basked with the puppies had to be brought to another room, upstairs, as the light was better. The basket was not the problem but the transport of 11 puppies upstairs and keeping them away from falling downstairs (while carrying the next two) was exciting. And of course, the mum and some other adults had to follow upstairs and downstairs, too. The photos themselves were also difficult to realize. They wanted a photo with 11 puppies looking out of the basket. With mum Kimberly in the background. They were patient enough to put the puppies into the basket again and again, but the puppies crawled out again with the same energy.
The article was published locally the next day and one day later, they also published a photo nationwide. I cancelled a date with the second TV station (RTL, the leading private station in Germany) because the puppies were sooo tired. RTL came some days later.
Of course, such an interest showed by the medias caused busy telephone lines. I got so many calls and everybody wants to see my dogs. I am proud to show them but exactly now the puppies need a lot of care.
Meanwhile all puppies of this litter are sold. If you have interest to see my dogs or to buy a puppy of the following litters, please feel free to call me.
