Evička bought her first own dog in April: a female of Braque d´Auvergne named Jazz od Smutné říčky (breeder Slavomír Hanáček). We call her Packa, she was so cute :-)

In June Dita celebrated her 10th birthday. We have celebrated it with big joy, as it was exactly after one year, when she got over troubles with her cervical spine - within one year of treatment with "Teufelskralle", a traditional medicine from South Africa, that was recomended to us by our austrian friend Eva-Maria Kralicek, our Dita became younger than before, full of joy and life. We were very happy and enjoy every new day with her, a lively senior dog. She got birthday-cake - you can see how the cake is prepared by clicking on: ZDE

Victoria got next CACIB on internat.show in Tulln, Austria, from judge K.Reisinger. By this win she was qualified for famous english show Crutfs.
On another show, a Basset club show in Austria, that was organiezd in Burg Lockenhaus, we have showed our 3 littlemates from litter V. Timur Bohemia Horrido owned by fam.Hellenschuss, was here, too. I highly appreciated the wise opinion of the english judge Mr.Gillanders about Basset Hound. From our group he highly awarded Velvet, who won under him champion class. Being also members of the club, Velvet have won the title "Club Winner". It was for second time, after 2005. By this way the Challenge cup „Otto Ehrenpreiss“ appeared again in our home – to spend here a year till next clubshow in Austria. We have got the cup from last-year winner, Timur. By this way, the cup stays within a family, and we hope it stays so :-).
