I don't know if we can talk about what's new at this time. Most conversations are about either the weather, coronavirus, or regulations in different countries. But we still have one great news. In January, our Zippa reached the age of 18 months and underwent a number of medical examinations. Everything turned out as best as possible. From the examinations required by the club, we passed the examination of hip dysplasia with the best possible result of HD A / A, as well as the examination of dislocation of the patella with the result PL 0/0. Other orthopedic examinations that Zippa underwent were elbow dysplasia with the result ED 0/0, OCD with the result 0/0, LTV with the result 0 - unaffected, and spondylosis 0. Out of the genetic examinations we have done DM ( degenerative myelopathy) with an N/N result, without detection of a gene mutation, as well as multifocal retinopathy CMR1, also with an N/N result, and we also had her DNA profile done. Her eye examination awaits us during April and we will of course announce the results.
Based on Zippa's great health results, we decided not to postpone litter "A", so we can look forward to our very first litter in the summer autumn of this year. Informations about parents can be found in the section "Puppies".

As for the pregnancy of our sheep, everything is in the stars, but from what we see, the girls have rounded up nicely, so we hope that the herd will grow during April. There were huge frosts and very low temperatures, so the weather comlicated for us the separation of the sheep into two herds and we had to make quickly another „barn“ from ny materials we had, so they can hide on a warmer place. Hopefully we will have enough time soon to start to build a completely new barn for the sheep. But for now, we have our hands full of work with the reconstruction of the guest house - for you.
Like most of you, we are usually at home. We are very lucky to be able to spend time outside with the animals. With the closure of kindergartens, we have a new little helper. He helps, with anything he can, although as all parents might know, the help of our children sometimes tends to do more work. Also calves were born on the neighboring field, so we go to "check" with our little helper.
One of the nice little things we had was Faury’s visit. She is already a huge and very smart young lady, her leg is already completely healed and fully functional. I am thankful to her owner Denisa for the wonderful care she gives her and for the visits, which always make us very happy. Another nice visit we had were the girls, Biesca and Cariňa from kennel Patou von Traumberg. They visited us together with their owner and breeder. Although our sheep are used to dogs, even very active and energic puppies, I was prepared to chase sheep somewhere in the woods or neighboring fields for the rest of the day. However, nothing like that happened, the girls were completely calm, they sniffed and „inspected“ the sheep and behaved very naturally in their presence. It was also a great social interaction for Sonny, with whom we (as well as others) do not have much opportunity to socialize ioutside our home thanks to the regulations. Sonny found two more friends. We also made a small trip, to kennel Perla Silesia, to the opposite end of the republic, to tease the dogs and look at the mother who was expecting at that time. Puppies were born at kennel Perla Silesia at the end of February and we hope that we will be able to come and see them soon. For now, we wish them good health and strength in life.

I would like to wish you all a lot of strength, no one has it easy. A lot of people get into a bad mood or get depressed. Perhaps a light will soon appear at the end of the tunnel and we will be able to see each other normally, as it used to be.
We haven't added any info or photos to the web or our social networks for a long time. Not so much is happening, thanks to the rough time we have to face. Moreover, the rainy, shady sad weather does not help to the sad mood worldwide. Thanks to that weather, we are not able to make any nice photos to share. As my great friend says when I ask her how her dogs are doing she always responds, "they didn't say anything but they eat and poop" i might say, lately it’s the same here. The new sheep have already acclimatized beautifully, for the last month the older ones have been accompanied by a breeding ram of the Charollais breed, so we hope that they will succeed and by the end of spring we will be able to enjoy the birth of the lambs.

It makes me very happy that our "little" Millie (a.k.a. Miluna) is doing very well on the pastures. We spend with her more and more time there the last days. She is the first of our dogs, who did not show the slightest tendency to chase sheep.

You might have noticed that philosophy is a very strong and important part of my life and the life of my family. That's why I regret how people in these times when it is important to support each other are in „war“ with the "others" just because they don't share the same opinion (and then actually because they share it). I am sorry to see individuals use the platforms of their social networks or websites to accuse others (even without names mentioned). When they appropriate general facts and present them as their own opinions with a patent. After all, more people may share the same opinion, and we should be happy that we are not alone with that opinion or point of view. Once the grass is green, it is green, and no one will say that the grass is the same color as when you mix blue with yellow. I also regret how people strongly express their sympathies or antipathies through "likes", "hearts" and "kisses" or, conversely, complete ignorance on social media. I am sorry how the unhealthy self-confidence has grown from the small successes of individuals and also the fact that the humility that everyone loves to mention in connection with our breed has disappeared somewhere. Hard times are trying us and none of us knows what will happen next. We do not know whose help we will need and who will need ours. That is why it is important not to burn bridges and build barriers, but to put aside senseless disagreements and unjustified conflicts. Each of us shoul look at the mirror and honestly say that we have made or haven’t made any mistakes. All I can do is believe that all of us who truly love this breed will eventually stop fightin, blaming and accusing each other and we will all find a common path and respect for others.
I would like to wish you, in the name of our family, pleasant and peaceful holidays and a successful new year, health, love and satisfaction for everyone, and a great deal of positive energy,

The typical fall weather came to us for a few days. From morning to evening fog and rain, mud everywhere, gloomy mood and cold. This created some space for us to get cozy for a while and to relax a bit outside of urgent duties. With a cup of hot tea, we were finally able to enjoy each other and also finish the website. And so we greet you, from the historically first post on our blog! We will try to update the website as often as possible. Some links will remain empty for now and will be filled later. You can find more news on our accounts on the social networks Instagram and Facebook. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail, social networks or telephone.
