2004 Crufts Groenendael 1st Special Puppy bitch
2005 Crufts Groenendael RCC & 2nd Open bitch
We are so pleased with the 'N' litter that we have used Rival again. He has been mated to Rilla's sister, Mona Lisa. Puppies are due 14th Feb 2004. We will also repeat the 'N' litter later in this year.
Congratulations to Kris Malinowski's puppy Nexus for winning 1st Puppy Dog and Best Puppy at LKA, and to Babs Robinson and Tommy Goode's puppy Nocturne who was 2nd Puppy bitch to her sister Nikita, who lives with us.

Nikita loved life so it has been particularly hard to lose her so young. In January 2009 she was diagnosed with an aggressive nasal adenocarcinoma and underwent 4 weeks of radiotherapy which initially appeared to be successful. Sadly by September we knew the cancer was progressing and she was given sleep in February to save her suffering. She was the mother of Ch Ebontide Rikardo at Noirdael and our Ebontide Tabou. We will always miss her. (Ebontide)
