Entlebucher Beach Day in Connecticut

I had the great pleasure of attending the Entlebucher Beach Day in Connecticut.  Jennifer Spirer and friends organized a NEMDA-sponsored gathering of Entlebucher owners and their canine companions starting out at Compo Beach in Westport, followed by a delicious potluck back at the Spirers with lots of ball chasing and a “My Dog Can Do That” competition. We renewed old friendships and made new ones, people and dogs alike! Looking forward to the National Entlebucher Mountain Dog Association (NEMDA) national specialty and Entlefest planned for early September 2016 in Macungie Memorial Park near Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Entlebucher Day in Connecticut

Entlebucher owners from the east coast of USA and Canada met in Connecticut with their dogs for a beach day followed by a potluck.

 

Puppies arriving late May and early June 2014

We will be welcoming two litters of Entlebucher Mountain Dog puppies this spring: one from Moratel Sweetie Josefina (Canada) in late May and the second from Sandy aka Lady du Bois du Foyard (Swiss) in early June. Sire of both litters is Ballyhara’s Koh-I-Noor (Slovakia) aka “Koko”. Puppies will be ready to go from late July 2014 to early August 2014. The reservation list is still open but filling up quickly. Please contact us to schedule a telephone interview. Puppies can be picked up in Nova Scotia, or safely shipped anywhere in North America. Upon request, special arrangements can be made for pick-up in the USA.

Moratel Entlebucher Mountain Dogs – Annual CERF Exam 2014

One of the requirements of ethical breeding is to have the dogs’ eyes examined annually by a certified veterinary ophthalmologist. I have been consulting for many years with Dr. Cheryl Cullen of Cullen-Webb Animal Eye Specialists in New Brunswick. Dr. Cullen travels to Halifax, Nova Scotia on a regular basis, saving the dogs and their people hours of travel. On April 6, we met Dr. Cullen at Fairview Animal Hospital where she performed the CERF (Canine Eye Registration Foundation) exam on our seven dogs.  The dogs’ eyes have an unusual appearance as they are temporarily dilated with drops.
