Us & Judge


22nd July 2008 - Teddy, Lynne and, the late, Ove Germundsson

 

Critique by: The late Ove Germundsson,Swedish Vallhund Specialist Judge - Sweden

 

"9 month old is strong and mature. Excellent head and expression. Still a bit thin in the nose. Excellent neck, topline and tail. Very well shaped in front. Breastcase of good length . Excellent angulation and movements. Excellent coat and colour. Moves well. A very attractive dog."

Teddy arrived in New Zealand on the 15 February 2007! I began my search for a Swedish dog pup in 2005 and after many disappointments and set backs, Tove Gustavsson agreed to send me one of her puppies. Tove went to huge efforts to get Teddy to New Zealand, and I will always be very grateful. Teddy is the 1st Swedish Vallhund to come from Sweden to New Zealand.   He is a real little Teddy bear ... cuddly & affectionate. He has taken to life as a 'Kiwi' like a duck to water, with boundless energy and enthusiasm and is adored by all who meet him. Teddy has produced Champions, Multi Group and In Show winning Vallhunds in New Zealand and Australia, as well as the only NZ Bred dual Titled Champion.

This picture was taken when Teddy was 7 years old.  He is a great little herding dog.

Smart, sensitive, intelligent, I am sure he is smarter than the average person.

What qualities would bring to mind the movie icon John Wayne? Rugged good looks, quiet self confidence, a general can do competence perhaps.  As Teddy has grown, it is his great heart and gentlemanly ways that has most prompted this comparison.

Ruby's critique with Ove Germundsson

22nd July 2008 - Lynne, Ruby, Steward and Ove Germundsson

Critique by: The late Ove Germundsson,Swedish Vallhund Specialist Judge - Sweden

"14 month old bitch, very feminine, excellent head, could have better ear placement. Needs to mature more in front and body. Excellent bone angulations, typical movements, very sound. Excellent type and proportions"

"Ruby bounced into my life on the 12th July 2006. She is my 1st import and I owe a big thank you to her breeder, the late Leonie Darling. Ruby has the sweetest nature, is extremely intelligent and full of the joys of life with an uncompromising loyalty. She is a very precious and much loved member of our family. A proven breeder, she has produced Champions, multi Group and In show Winners in Australia and New Zealand and the only NZ bred Dual titled Champion. As well as her own successful show career, she has also produced working farm dogs, agility, search and rescue and obedience dogs "

QUALIFYING FOR THE 2009 PUPPY OF THE YEAR SHOW



 

Ricky was born just after midnight, the last puppy from our litter of 9.  Definately a case of "last but not least".  After 4 years in the planning, I was delighted at the quality of his litter.  However, Ricky captured my heart with his outgoing, friendly nature - coupled with his quality of type, he earned a place in our home and our hearts. He has proved himself over and over again, confirming my faith in him. 

Aside from his very successful show career, Ricky is a wonderful boy with any easy, laid back nature.  He is a big softee and likes nothing better than to lay upside down on a knee or bed and have his tummy rubbed.  He is smart and understanding, just a lovely young man to have around.

Ricky has proven to be an excellent herding dog since retiring from the show ring. 

He is always willing to put his best paw forward and give anything a go.
