OD (5) 1 Praetzas NL/B/LCD/VDH/GER/HRCH Blacksugar Luis

This top class black was in full bloom and looking a picture, strongly built of good size and balance, well shaped head, alert expression, good angulations, deep through the brisket, great bady properties, powerful hind quarters, sound in movement, presented to perfection and showed with animation. Pleased to award him the CC and my co-judge delighted to make him BIS.

Isobel Key


OD (13,6) 1 Praetzas NL/B/LCD/VDH/GER/HRCH Blacksugar Luis.

Now in his prime, this super boy looked really well today and completely filled my eye. He has a fabulous head, proper length of muzzle, a kind eye of good colour, correct amount of stop and a melting expression. His coat is excellent in texture, with a good undercoat and he has a proper otter tail. He has a strong neck into good shoulders, good besket, good rib and short coupled in a strong loin into good quarters on good bone and feet. He has leg length to balance the picture. Moved soundly. Very much at one with his handler who showed him to his best advantage to win the CC and RBIS

Pelle (Assassin Prinssi Pellava) – 09/28/2016 – 03/20/2017

After a short, severe illness our little sunshine Pelle has passed away. He had diarreah and was throwing up because of an inflammation of the intestine. There were no foreign bodies in the intestine. No words can describe how sad we are and what we feel.

He came into our life and enriched our life. With his loving and amusing nature, he wrapped us and all those who were fortunate enough to get to know him, around his fingers and sneaked into all hearts. Pelle will always have a place in our hearts and in our memories. We miss him so much. Nothing is as it was.

Little Pelle, thank you for giving us so much pleasure in this short time. RIP and live well … .when we’ll see each other again !!!!!!

Thanks to Niina and Eva, who entrusted us with this wonderful little man.

Congrats to Travis’s sister Page (ASOP Tea For Two) for BOB.

For the nice organisation of the show many thanks to Eugenie nd her team.

Many thanks also to Eric Parr fort he kind judging and also fort he wonderful reports.



Our new family member:


With Pelle comes a splash of color into our family. We are happy that he is now with us and enriches our life. Also our boys welcomed him friendly, although they were a bit confused because of the color „the slightly different black“. Already after a few days they are thick friends and inseparable.

We would like to thank the breeder Niina Väisänen for entrusting us with the little guy. Also many thanks to all who supported and helped us to bring Pelle to his new home!

We are looking forward to seeing the little man grow up healthy and lively!
