She is not the prettiest girl - with some awful traits --- but look at her gait 10.00!!!!

So I made a forum post opening specialties for breeds and totally didnt even think to make one for Keeshonden since I have a soft spot for them being my breed irl. So I made a special one for yall next week sometime. Its 500 BOB payout and 250 for Winners dog and Winners bitch. I dont know if you all still check this but I thought this would be the best way to get that across haha. Goodluck xx

I have no problem keeping him and just posting him as a $25 stud when the time comes, I have plenty of room. But I wont keep him if no one wants to use him.

I probably won't use your boy more than once or twice at best, so it may not pay to keep him for me anyway, don't know about other breeders though. I have managed to get up to 9.7 size with one bitch and now her son.

Quite pleased, I now have managed to get up to 9.8 in F/Q, 10.00 in gait, 9.9 in TNB in various dogs. Not widespread yet, but working on it. Have managed to keep the 10.00 and 9.9 coat going. No sign of an improvement in head yet!

Not many Keesie breeders showing anymore now, sadly.

I just looked at the breed directory for the first time in a while, and it is definitely much shorter list of breeders. Kind of like a snowball effect, as people start dropping out, there are less show entries, which prompts others to drop out, and so on. At this point, I'm lucky if I remember to log on once a day to sell sessions and check if anyone is in heat for breeding. But I've always been like this (for 10 years next month on Gypsy Winds!) play for like a year or two, disapear or a year or two, and repeat. I just find i lose interest after a while, the game has not really changed all that much in almost a decade. And I've gotten increasingly frustrated with not only the lack of improvements, even that Jeff has said he'll implement, but the length of time it even takes to get bugs fixed. sad :(

Hi everyone. I've been thinking of adding Keeshonds to my kennel as a secondary breed. I have room for another boy to show. Do you guys happen to have any boys that can be finished, but don't fit into your breeding program?

Hi and welcome, don't have any unfinished boys I don't need at the moment, have forever homed some unfortunately. I have bitches due in both my Keesie kennels (Auswolf and DenKees) during next week.

If you are interested in new pups let me know, and I will let you know if I have any come in that I don't need.

I seem to go from drought (lousy group of litters) to surplus (more than I need) when the litters come in.

Congratulations happy :)

I am raising a - very rare - 9.7 head girl for breeding in the hope of increasing the random factor when I breed her and maybe breaking the 9.8 deadlock in heads.


Just a glance through your kennel, says you have made great progress with your new lines. Where is your highest SOP now?

I have got to 97.55 SOP with this nice boy:

Ty ty. My current highest SOP is 79.9. Seeing lots more in the 70s now. Im hoping to be in the low 90s in another month or two. I gotta say, this new project is really relaxing. No more stressing about entering shows or sessioning or even logging on every day, but still getting the satisfaction of seeing some progress.

Wow. Its kind of depressing. Keeshonds were THRIVING here for so long, but it looks like we're sinking back into obscurity.

For me, the continued silence from admin/lack of repairs or implementation of fixes for glitches in showing have really killed any desire to show. Im just kind of plodding along over here with my head project but am pretty meh about it. sad :(

Yes, it is depressing, most of the showing is Shelhond and my two kennels with Arkay and Cwm Ddu occasionally putting dogs in. And the bulk of the studs are mine now. I am starting to have to think carefully about ensuring I keep diversity in my bloodlines.

Did you know?
The two largest American dog shows after Westminster are the National Dog Show (which is televised on Thanksgiving Day by NBC, usually after the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade) and the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.
