Miniature Bull Terriers

Yes, you read it right, no I don't want one, although the are very cute ;-)

Val asked me if I wanted to write the critiques at the clubmatch of the Dutch Miniature Bull Terrier friends. The judge was from England, so they needed someone who could write Eglish well enough.
Frank went with me to take over if necessary, Chimay went as my Service Dog and Eoos went to get used to shows. Val was ring commissaris and Marijke joined us too.
Left the judge, behind the table me (Anita) and Val.
It went very well, there were not many Miniature Bull Terriers (18), so it was not a lot of writing. Chimay stayed all the time behind my chair: and Frank and Eoos watched it al from a side:
It was a good day.
Eventually I would do it again ;-)

Today two pictures of Eoos. She was sitting in a funny way, so I could not resist (and I had the camera in my hands, because I was taking pictures of our new tree). She has grow so much!

Prunus subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea'

Is a long name for a beautiful tree. When we lived in Rotterdam we had one in the back garden. It flowers in the winter, when it is not freezing. There is not much flowering in this time of year, that is why I love this tree. In the spring it often flowers again.

Tuesday we went to Nobilis in Ens to get a Prunus subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea'. On their site it was mentioned they had this tree and I earlier bought two trees at their place (an Acer palmatum 'Atropurpureum' and a Prunus with red leaves) they both were of outstanding quality, so I was happy to go there again.
I planted it the same day.

Wednesday I worked again in the garden. Two of three blueberries I took with me when we moved from Rotterdam to Lelystad were not doing well. They survived but did not thrive, because they were not planted on a right spot. So I replanted them, I hope just in time. They both got a better spot and some fresh soil.

smooth Demi

Last Monday smooth Demi (Xin-Feng's Demeter) was bred in Germany by the black smooth Chen Jin Zung Tzung Le.

A short impression (in Dutch) with pictures on Ilone's weblog Del Cazadora Blanca.

We keep our fingers crossed!

the website

Today I released a large update.

But I want to mention that Gladdichs pages are finished: a page about his life, our personal farewell and a photo album.
