21.6.2019 | BLUE IS FATHER AGAIN

We are proud on having 6 more puppies in our "Blue" family. Belaya Shae Trafalazz delivered us 3 male and 3 female puppies. They are in both black and blond and most importantly they are heatlhy.

Currenlty Blue has more female descendats (26 femals and 20 males to be exact) represented in all posible colors. They live in different european countries including Italy, Slovenia, Netherlands, France, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Croatia. We also have Rubik living in Canada Alma Lu in Great Britain. The often ask me if I know and remember every single one. And the asnwer is that I do. I know for all litters, genders, colors, marks and every single posible detail from breeding.

Throughout all that we met a lot of beautiful people. We are glad that all of them are taking good care of their new family member are doing all the best for them. I would also like to express my respect to all the breeders and point out how big and important job they are doing. I can't tell you how happy I am when I receive your photos, videos, thoughts and messages telling me that how happy dogs make them. I also told all these beautiful stories to Blue, but he doesn't care. He just wants to go out and eat.

21.6.2019 | NOVICE...

What a day! I am more than proud of show successes of Blue's offspring - "R" ex Horto Albo and Aton-Flyboy dell’a Delizia d’Este We met them all at the show and we took Blue with us to "say hello". He was very friendly to all puppies and was happy after realizing puppies are to busy with each other and no one is bothering him. Show ended and what followed was a well deserved party in the river.

From Croatia we received a wonderful news. The last puppy - Admiral Fred - from the "A" litter Ameya found a superb home in Slovenia.

Evening ended in a great way because I have received new photos of Blue's puppies - wonderful "D" litter Tralfazz.

25.3.2019 | AFTER A LONG TIME

We are back with some news. Our life is spinning around dogs, grown ups and puppies - also future puppies.

15 new members joined our "Blue Pinus Alpinia" family in february only. In Slovakia, in the My Ardeen kennel ; http://deena-aldeon.webnode.cz/my-ardeen/ ; Luna gave birth to 7 black and tan puppies, 3 males, 4 females. In Croatia in the kennel Ameya www.ameya-hovawart.com; Leelah gave birth to 8 babies, 6 black and tan and 2 blond; 5 black and tan females, 1 black and tan male and 2 blond males.

With this february addition our Blue has 40 puppies already and we are super proud of every one of them. After all, they are a bit ours too.

In february puppies from R litter ex Horto Albo www.hovawart-exhortoalbo.com started leaving to their new homes. Before leaving to their new home in France Rubin in Rio together with their owners spent a week at our place. At their arrival we were really surprised how well prepared the owners were. Their van was full of puppy things, I could not believe my eyes what all they had with; a fence, many blankets, dog beds, toys, bowls, boxes.. We spent a week together and had a really good time, also the weather was perfect. We probably don't have to explain that Rio and Rubin made a special impression on us and since then we are thinking about something that could happen in the future ....

In march we attended a ring trainig organized by HWKS. I have to admit that Blue still knows a ring training perfectly, while me... well, lets just say his memory is better. There we met Rufus - Aron, Rocco, Rea and Raya from R litter ex Horto Albo and Aton - Flyboy from Delizia D'Este litter. Blue was very friendly and gentle, also curious who this little hovis are.

In the last few days puppies from P - legla De Kerdianou joined their new families; https://dekerdianou.chiens-de-france.com/. Black and tan female Palma stayed at home with Magali, we are very happy about her decision and also the other new owners promised to stay in touch with us.

What can I say, they are amazing, fantastic, incredible, wonderful. Do you think I'm not thinking objectively? Each litter is a special story and each is very dear to me. I'm the happiest when I can follow our puppies from the birth on. I realized and now I can see what a hard and resposible job being a breeder is. To all of us (yes, I counted myself too) is very important that our puppies get the best possible homes.

One more hint for all of you...our story continues….

28.1.2019 | LITTER P IN THE KENNEL DE KERDIANOU

On 23 January 2019, P litter - Bluebichoux was born in Kerdianou Kennel; 4 females, 1 male, all black&tan. Small but nice litter, boutique litter, says Magali. All the best Galicia.

18.12.2018 | BLUE'S SECOND LITTER!

Blue's second litter was born on the last November's day. We probably do not need to specifically explain how we were on the spikes. And just a bit in shock when we found out the final number of puppies; there is 12 of them. For the whole team, 6 females and 6 males. All healthy, strong. Two black males are available for suitable families. Good luck all of them, also mumy Riva .. And I can not wait to see them..

27.10.2018 | BLUE'S SECOND LITTER IS ON THE WAY!

How it happened: This time Blue was chosen as stud male for a mating with the black beauty Riva (Enormous Ocean Breeze). The mating was planned for mid-October and, of course, we have completely different plans for the last weekend in September. But Riva decided to hurry up with the heat and that the best days are exactly this sunny weekend... It was a real dog love story, without complications ... just how the owners wish to happen. And finally the ulta day came and we have received happy news: Blue's second litter is on the way ...

Good luck to Riva…

15.10.2018 | WE VISITED BLUE'S PUPPIES IN ITALY

I like Italy a lot, unforgettable skiing, excellent cappuccino and of course the best shopping. But this time it was even better than that, I went to visit Blue's puppies. The whole property Delizia D'Desste is very well taken care of and a great place for dogs and animals. They have all sorts of polygons, pools and a big swimming pond for dogs.Just:stay and look; uauuu! And there they were, 8 small puppies 6 of them are blondes, 1 is black and 1 is black-brown. All of them are very vivacious and rollicking. A few of them tried to climb on my lap while I was sitting down while others were playing with my shoelaces. We cuddled and played for the whole afternoon. They were so energic that it was hard to take some good photos. And then all of a sudden, they all fell asleep until the next round of food from mommy. It was really great seeing them because all of them look so cute and full of love, but who would doubt that. In the evening Me, Vesna and Blue took a short walk around the beautiful Ferrara and tried some excellent Italian specialties. It was a really great finish of this beautiful trip and all I can say is: "Bella Italia, I'll be back", And thank you, Roberta, for everything.

6.10.2018 | THYROID TEST

We have added one more tets on the list of Blue's health test. This time we made a thyroid test and the results could not be better! We are very happy.

.

29.8.2018 | PUPPIES ARE BORN

Well, they are here. Puppies of my Blue and Sun (Blue Pinus Alpinia x H-Invisible Sun del Mare d'Inverno). So called Galactica Litter della Delizia d'Este. They were born on Monday, August 27, 2018. We have 8 puppies - 3 blond females and 1 black female, 3 blond males and 1 black&tan male. I'm very happy that we have all 3 possible colors. We wish all the best for them - to be healthy and to get the best possible owners. And I can not wait to see them, because they are also a little bit mine.

20.7.2018 | EXPECTED LITTER IN ITALIAN KENNEL DELIZIA D'ESTE

It was Slovenian national holiday and the bride from Italy visited our Blue. A beautiful blond hovawart girl H-Invisible Sun del Mare d’Inverno, gentle, kind and playful. We could say it was love at first dog-sight. Roberta told us the good news today - Sun is expecting puppies at the end of August.

.

18.7.2018 | PHOTOSHOOTING

Blue obtained the title Show Champion of Slovenia and so we needed a photo of him with the beautiful rosette. Lately we have very hot and sunny weather and it is not an easy task to pose in spiking high temperatures. Because of that me and Tea chose a location for photoshooting near water so Blue could refresh after posing on sun. The Lake Jasna in Kranjska Gora offeres amazing view over the Alps. So first we made posing with rosette photos and then we decided to do some action photos in the river nearby. While I was throwing ball and sticks to Blue - because bringing it back to the owner from water is his favorite thing to do - and my feets were freezing, Tea made some amazing photos of Blue. PS: By the lake is a wonderful place where you can order a nice portion of excelent royal roast(even without rosins):P

You can see the photos in the --> GALLERY <--

27.5.2018 | BLUE IS NEW INTERNATIONAL SHOW CHAMPION

CACIB BLED exhibition; what can I say... The organizer decided to move the exhibition from Bled to Komenda, which is a 45 minutes of car drive away from Bled and the name CACIB Bled is not really suitable for this show anymore. The show rings were placed on newly asphalted surface, and it was not pleasant to wait and stand there on a hot day at noon. Not for us, even less for dogs. But OK, we know for the next time. My Blue again proved that he can present himself very nicely, we was graded with an excellent 1, CAC, CACIB and BOB. With this fourth CACIB Blue fulfilled the conditions to obtain the International Show Champion title.

.

27.5.2018 | BLUE IS SHOW CHAMPION OF SLOVENIA

We attended national exhibition CAC Hrušica where Blue received excellent 1, CAC and BOS. With this CAC candidature he fulfilled the conditions to obtain the Show Champion of Slovenia title. To obtain this title dog needs to win five CAC candidatures - one has to be from special or club show and at least two from international show.

.

8.4.2018 | SPECIAL SHOW FOR HOVAWARTS

Special exhibition for hovawarts, organized by Hovawart club Slovenia, took place in Barje with a beautiful sunny weather. Blue was registered in open class with 5 other males of all 3 colors. The judge made a wonderful compliment that Blue is a really nice representative of the breed. Blue was placed on first place in open class (1/6), became best male and at the end he became also Best of breed! What else could I wish for. It was his day. And my most beautiful representative of the breed got one big pack of pig ears and other dried goodies ... mmmmm.

.

12.11.2017 | WORLD DOG SHOW LEIPZIG 2017

We attended the World Exposition in Leipzig. Mr. Michael Kunze, specialist for the Hovawart breed, was the judge of the exhibition. The judge had a demanding job, as he had to judge 102 hovawarts. And it should be noted that the judging at such exhibition is carried out according to more strict criteria, on a higher level, which was also stated before the beginning of the judging. Blue was registered in the open class and received an excellent note with a wonderful description. Great job my boy!

CH. BLUE PINUS ALPINIA

In May 2014, our family, after losing our female, started to think that we would still like to have a dog. Our wish was to have a bigger, active dog, without major health problems. We were not consistent; husband and elder son wanted to have a male, me and my younger son a female. We found a hovawart kennel where puppies were expected and the future mom inspired us. But when we met the male (father of the litter), we were absolutely certain - that's it, we want a puppy from exactly this litter, and it doesn't matter if it is a female or male. It is good that sometimes we do not decide about all things ourselves, but the Mother Nature. And so, in September 2014, the most beautiful hovawart in the world, Blue Pinus Alpinia, came to our family.

Life with him is varied and fun, he is a lively and active dog. He loves walks, ball games, action. He likes water; in all aggregate states. In the spring and summer he enjoys in the nearby river and in the lake; Blue is a real specialist for jumping into the water. In winter, there is nothing better than a thorough rolling in the snow and catching snowballs.

We have attended several courses with him, but sometimes he reminds us that we have to be consistent with our rules and limits. By anatomy, he is real male, "macho", of a strong type but beneath that macho look is hidden a very gentle and friendly character. He is a real hovawart - he guards our house, garden and yard and makes sure that we are informed when someone is getting closer or visiting.

Together we go to the mountains, to the seaside, we visit the exhibitions and do many other fun stuff. He is our family member. He lives with us in the house and is always somewhere nearby. My Blue has one special button: off and on. He can be resting and chilling in his bed, calmly looking around, but when I take out the "right shoes" out of the closet ... ..jupiiii, action !!!

And our wish? That he stays with us as long as possible, just the way he is - loving, funny, fluffy…
