Today we went to Poland for mating with Billy. All went well without any complications, so I hope we can expect puppies - litter E z Holubické stráně - at the end of May. Click on the pregnancy calendar above to see what is going on inside our Beretta.
Caren met the last condition for being registered as a brood bitch.
We plan to mate her in autumn 2018 or spring 2019.

December very briefly......
The very first weekend we were hunting with Zira in Medlov, also my dad and Beretta joined us. Photos are here.
On Sunday we went with Caren to show in Nitra, where she took CAC and she is now fully qualified for Slovak Champion. Photos again in gallery here.
During the following week we again went to Albertovec for two days! With Zira and also Olinka with Zir and of course Zuzka and Sanny and Kofilka. All our gordons did great job and we had a great time! Photos as usually in our extern gallery and here.
The last advent weekend we went to hunt with Caren in Slavkov u Brna. I was invited for a hunt, which was fabulous. Photos are here.
Long time awaited HD results of Caren are here and they are great - A/A! She is 4th puppy of Zira with HD free result as well as Beretta, Brix, Cipísek (Cedric). I am very happy of the results as well as their owners are!
Great news from Cipisek's owner!!! Hips x-ray result is HD free - A/A. In age of 14 months Cipisek fullfilled all conditions to become stud male, now the girls will have to wait until age of 18 months ;-)
Our kennel was represented by only one dog - Cipísek - Cedric z Holubické stráně. In competition of 5 other dogs he was awarded as EXCELLENT. Few days before the show, Cipisek and his owner were at traning camp organised by MSKAO and passed TAN exam at the end of it with great ratings allowing Cipisek to be registered as a stud male. It is hard to believe, that a puppy who was waiting for his owner until age of 6 months is now the most successful from the whole litter!!!!
Beretta z Holubické successfully passed forest test in 2nd merit with 196 points with my dad Mr. Zbyněk Vašíček. Huge congratulations and respect! Photos here.

The very first international show in this year is DUO CACIB Brno. This time gordon setters were judged by abroad judges - Alenka Pokorn and Judviga Kolnkiel. On Saturday our "Cipísek" - Cedrik had his show premiere. He is growing into very nice male and deservedly got very promissing 1st. Also our Caren was shown and got Very promising 1st both days. Also Agata Witkowska came to Brno so I could again after few months admire the beauty of our litter's sire - Blues - Lamborghini Black Ivy. Photos from Saturday here and from Sunday here.
Caren's show premier was in Brno. In puppy class we met Jiřinka and her Elza z Dvorku Čamourku. Elza shown herself very well and deserved to be Very promissing 1st and Caren Very promissing 2nd. We have a lot to learn and my big thanks belongs to handlers Katka and Jitka, who have shown me it is "possible" to show Caren ;-)
Today our C puppies are half year old.
Good health and a lot of joy with your owners!
Caren is growing up into young beautiful lady and her show premier is coming next week...so we are training ;-)

Still in whelping box but soon they will need a lots of space.
Even Zira is happier there and she is not separated from the rest of the pack.
Beretta is very curious about her little brothers and sisters, but Zira will not let her go near them and she respects that.
I can also take photos more often as there is more natural light.
