2015-2016 ( october -august ):

I am still a lousy updater, but I try to update it now, also if you want to know about future litters etc. You can always send me an email in case I have been lousy in updating again ;-) marianne@vanoxymoron.com

Not much showing or coursing happening at the moment because of other stuff that is keeping us very busy at the moment.

We start with some very bad news:  Unfortunately Paco was hit by a car in 2016 and did not survive, we all miss him, especially Isabel and her family who shared their household with him.

Thank you Isabel and Raief for having Paco with Sancho and taking great care of him.

19 october 2015 our puppies were born out of ch. Rosenhills Just Joy x ch. Garuda v Oxymoron. 5 males and 3 females. All puppies found fantastic homes! more information on this litter on the 70-ies car litter page :-)

In april we went to the CACIB Lingen, where Twinkie became BOB wire junior and BOB wire and was selected with the last 6 for BIS junior, Marty went BOB puppy it was his first show, Astro was BOB and Smitthy BOS and BOB veteran and was also selected for the last 6 for BIS veteran.

In June we went to our sighthoundclub specialty where Twinkie became BOB junior and BOB again, and is now CW 2016, Marty went BOB puppy and Cy BOB veteran + res. best male

July : we had a nice open show of KC Hoogeveen, it was Martys last show be for he went to his new owner in New Zealand! and he went all the way to BIS puppy! Astro became BOB and BIG2, Twinkie was also BOB, BIG and went all the way to BIS4!!

June 2012:

So much has happened that I decided to start over again with this website.

We had to say goodbye to Kalusha and Barry, we had to let Kalusha go in march after she got a brain infarct, she lived almost 11 1/2 years. Only 2 months later came bad news from Sweden, Barry was staying athis breeder for some shows, but suddenly he died, cause not known. He lived for almost 5years, he always lived life the fullest and he did not suffer, but still too young.

Unfortunately one of Smitthies puppies has been put down to sleep because of a reason I still don't understand and probably never will. I am real sorry this happened and whathurts me most is that his owner was somebody I considered as a dear friend

R.I.P Kalusha, Barry & Viggo

From now we hope to be able to bring more cheerful news.
