We organized a reunion with all littermates of the C-Litter and have a big birthday party as well. 7 out of 11 puppies were present. We realy enjoyed seeying all of them together and are pleased with how they have grown into such lovely teenagers.

We want to thank Kees eand Marja for their great hospitality and preparations for lunch. Even the dogs had a lovely treat. Despite the bad weather we had a fabulous day.

We want to thank all owners who took the time to join in.
