August 1991, we bought our first Golden Retriever, Penny the Apporteur,
from the family Heeren. Pim as we called her was our first dog. We took
her to obedience, tried out hunting training en did our first show in ’95
in Hasselt Belgium. All of this got us really wound up to start working
with dogs. Pim died too young at the age of 8.
1998 we bought Xanders van Balderheim from the family Klitsie. We started
showing a bit more with him and got a few places. Now we got really
enthusiastic and we were spotted at more and more shows.
At one of
these shows I saw a smaller retriever. His colour was red with a few white
markings. I fell in love at first sight with this little dog. After a few
phone calls we found Els van de Langenberg of Great Pleasure. She welcomed
us warmly and we got all the information we wanted about the Nova Scotia
Duck Tolling Retriever. Not very long after that Luca was born. Luca was a
very promising male and we are very proud that we can call him now by the
name of Multi Champion Axaluca of Great Pleasure.
After a while
we brought into our kennel, Toller CC Whisper of Great Pleasure and Golden
Retriever Anika van ‘t Solveld. We hope these 2 ladies will be the
foundation bitches of our kennel.
