are preparing for the holiday season of 2010. We look back
on an eventful dog year with as always ups and downs. We
personally had to say goodbye to Gabbana and Bice, two top
dogs. Most grateful that we so long have enjoyed these sweet
girls. With still two old ones on the couch, we set our
hearts, although at this moment Gucci and Prima Donna "Pebles"
are doing really well. Ala D'Oro show and work results.
This year we again look back with pride. Many excellent
results from Ala D'Oro dogs in field trials and working
trials and lets not forget dog shows. Besides the work competitions
and shows we had the opportunity to have a lot of good days
in the hunting field. We realize that we are lucky with
the hunting grounds in our area, especially in spring and
summer, we are therefore keen to use. This year we also
had the honour to train and hunt abroad. For this we thank
our friends. The coming year we hope to receive many new
messages and photo 's from all (co-) owners of an Ala D'
Oro. And as you have grown to expect, we place this news
on our Web page. We wish our Ala D'Oro dogs and their (co-)
owners a very happy and healthy New Year 2011!
18-12-2010Many things to update
you about, this time we have good and very sad news. We
start with the sad news that the young and talented Trussardi
di Ala D'Oro "Baltzar", has died unexpected and
very suddenly. We soon hope to learn more about the cause
of his death from the autopsy
report. We feel really sad and we wish Elias and Kasja all
the strength's and all the best coping with their great
Our good news is that during our trip to our friends in
Italy Miuccia Prada "Mot" and Laura Biagiotti
did very well at the official championship field trails.
The report about our visit to Italy is ready and o the Internet,
go to extra pages.
29-11-2010Great success for
Ala D'Oro kennel at the Amsterdam Winner.
27-11-2010Finally a moment
to sit at the computer. The report about our visit to Italy
is ready and now on the Internet.
Last weekend we were on the road with the dogs, this weekend
we have no time for extra walks with the dogs, the pressure
is great because we get a visitor from Denmark. We have
been waiting for this delighted moment to welcome Lisbeth
and her dogs again. This week we have a tight schedule,
training with the sisters Mia and Bianca. On Thursday, the
Norwegians will be welcomed to the Netherlands so then our
house will be really full. But first the Amsterdam Winner,
we are going tomorrow.
13-11-2010Brown puppy is en
route to her new owner, the owners looking forward to see
her. In Denmark was Coccinella di Ala D'Oro "Bianca" for
the first time at the dog show. She was rewarded by the
judge with 1 excellent, well done Lisbeth and Bianca! In
Sweden, Trussardi "Baltzar" and his owner does nicely in
the field, our expectations are high for this combination!
This month we had already some dogs birthday's to celebrate,
the children of Miuccia Prada "Mot" are now 4 years old,
Laura's children are 6 years old. We also received some
nice pictures from Ala D'Oro dog owners. You can look the
up in various Ala D'Oro sheets.

02-11-2010Last weekend we were
back in Denmark, this time to pick up two puppies. They
are children of Bambaia di Ala D'Oro. It seems to be not
so easy for the whole Ala D'Oro family to get used to two
"strange" puppies running around the house. Today an extra
day off from work to ensure that these puppies quickly develop
an Ala D'Oro rhythm. This morning we have been with Mia
and "Barbie" puppy in Obdam, what an experience. Mia is
really nice, something we did not expect because.... hey
Mia self is still a baby. Winner in Amsterdam is coming
up, we enormously looking forward to the visit from our
15-10-2010We still get sweet
messages from people because we have lost Gabbana, again
thanks for this. At this moment we are extremely busy with
various dog training courses. Laura Biagiotti, and Miuccia
Prada are now every day in the field with Jaap. Mia Carmen
is currently twice a week on field tour, but she also goes
to show training and obedience classes. Last week, we have
received a lot of pictures and news from Ala D'Oro dog owners.
On the photo we see the happy brothers, Peppino "Baggio"
and Minotti "Miga". "Miga" will for
the first time participate in a carnicross contest . It
is nice to hear that they are doing well. More news at our
01-10-2010 We want to thank
you for the kind words, post and e-mail we have received
following the dead of our sweet Gabbana. It is good to have
friends. Last weekend we have visited Gabbana's great grand
children in Denmark. The puppies look excellent. Miuccia's
daughter Bambaia shows to be a very relaxed and loving mother.
The plan is that we go back in late October and do the puppies
hunting intelligence test. We are very curious about their
talents. Of course Jaap and Kim took also the opportunity
to work with Muiccia, Mia and Freddie on the beautiful and
varied Danish hunting grounds.
More news on our BLOG,
23-09-2010 With much pain in
our hart we have to tell you that our sweet and lovely Gabbana
has past away. Last month Gabbana changed from an energetic
dog to the old lady that did not want to come with us for
walks anymore. When she decided three day's ago not eve
want to eat her special food we knew that this was the time
to let her go. We are very grateful that we could have her
with us for more then 12 years. She has been one of the
very important dogs for our kennel, her hunting skills and
her typical Bracco Italiano looks has helped us enormous
to build up a excellent name in (bracco) dog world. Gabbana
will be missed by us all. Rest in peace dear Gabbana.
06-09-2010Excellent news from
Denmark! Bambaia di Ala D'Oro, called "Bambi" has delivered
five female and four male puppies from an excellent combination.
28-08-2010We have put a enormous
amount of new pictures on the web, the owners of Moana,
Violetta, Pia, Trussardi send lovely pictures. We also put
new pictures on the web from our youngest girl Mia Carmen.
Also new on our web a report and pictures from the great
training weekend in Denmark.
01-08-2010Excellent news from
Denmark! Bambaia di Ala D'Oro, called "Bambi" has been successfully
mated. Before this out-cross combination was realized there
has been a long search for the typical Italian male with
perfect pedigree. Of course the male we were looking for
had to have great looks and proved his skills in the fields,
just as Bambaia already did. We are so happy to announce
that the ultra sound last week showed that the lovely Bambaia
di Ala D'Oro is pregnant! The short trip to Italy was a
success. Bambaia's puppies are expected in September 2010.

12-07-2010Last Saturday Mariotto
"Mauro" and Stephanie entered a working test of
the KNJV in Zeeland. The result was again great. They are
a super team together, we are so proud on them both. Bambaia
di Ala D'Oro who live in Denmark has been mated by a lovely,
good looking and perfect working Italian male. As Bambaia
was a gift too Kim and Anna (BiancoRosso) to build up their
kennel and we are the co-owners, we have made a lot of effort
to find this male for Bambaia. Our Denamark friends promised
to keep us up to date about the progress. We are very excited!
In the mean time we are busy with the preparations for a
new field trail season. We have been starting some practice
with Mia Carmen di Ala D'Oro, we think she is very talented.
We are lucky with her , she is easy to train, she probably
have inhered that from her dad Baiardo! August will be a
very busy month for us. Busy because we will be training
young Bracchi and Spinoni in and outside of Holland.

29-06-2010Back from the World
dog show in Herning, Denmark. A long weekend enjoying Lisbeth's
hospitality and have fun with all friends that where invited.
Lisbeth's house was very quick taken by a bunch of Bracco
and Spinone. It was exactly how Lisbeth and Boye wanted
it to be when they planed this in January. I can only say
that this weekend was super pleasant with the owners of
Coccinella, Solo Una, Rubella Vittoria, Delaney and not
to forget the Spinone clan from the Netherlands. I have
made a lot of new friends. Of course Kim, from partner kennel
Bianco Rosso came to meet up with us all. Next month there
is a new meeting planed in Denmark. Hope we can go again.
At the World dog show 2010 our sweet birthday girl Miuccia
Prada di Ala D'Oro got only a 2e excellent in Champion class,
it seems that this was the highest result we could get from
24-06-2010Ready to go to World
dog Show in Denmark. We will meet up with friends from all
over he world. Lets hope our dogs do well!
We recieved very lovely pictures taken by Stephanie in Toscane!
Here you see one taken of Mariotto and a bronze donkey.
16-06-2010Our sweet Bice is
gone, we have put the sweet memories in our hart, we will
12-06-2010 Back from Italy.
We had a lovely holiday week. In the Italian Dolomites it
is easy to enjoy the pure nature. We only brought two dogs
this trip, Miuccia Prada and Mia Carmen. Mia had to come
because Mauro and her did not meet in person yet. Mauro
and Maura recognize a lot of Baldo. Next week; we will go
on a trip to Denmark to enter the World dog show with Miuccia
Prada di Ala D'Oro. This is the best moment to see many
of the Ala D'Oro's puppies who found their homes in Denmark,
Sweden and Norway. Of course meeting our Scandinavian people
friends makes that we are looking forward to this Champion
23-05-10Finaly we have lovely
weather. Well we have been waiting for that because in Holland
the sun is shining always with whitsun. Last week Jaap has
been busy to hunt for the row deer buck. This is the special
season for Gucci , she is the one who is out hunting almost
every day with Jaap. She loves to sit with Jaap waiting
for row deer to show up.
Only two weeks away from the summer holiday! We have two
trips ahead of us. One to the south and one to the north
part of Europe.
There have been problems with our computer. Because
of this we have lost e-mail's and data. If you have been
in contact before or you are an Ala D'Oro dog owners, please
send us an e-mail
with your address and phone number.
13-05-10Are you a fan of the
Giro d'Ítalia? Well, Jaap is. His friend Mauro was
lucky, the Giro karavaan went close by his house and hunting
area in Novara. What a shame Jaap was not able to go there
at this moment. Today it is Ascension, the weather is no
good. On the TV only news about the plane crash, not fun
either. We are lucky to have Missoni and Klara at our house
today....cozy! Delightful to exchange information about
the Bracco Italiano and a good time too make new... pictures.
Because we had mature computer problem, we lost all our
data. Specialy Ala D'Oro dog owners, please send us an e-mail
with your address and phone number.
30-04-2010 It has been a while
ago that Ala D'Oro news could be found on our webpage. Problems
that we had with our computer are solved. So today an Ala
D'Oro update. Our dogs are doing really fine, five day's
ago we have had the pleasure to celebrate Bice's birthday.
Today it is Prima Dona's birthday We are happy to say that
our old ladies are still going strong. Last month we have
been on tour a lot. We have been visiting puppies in their
new homes. Miuccia Prada "Mot" and "Baldo"
can be proud at their children. See update photo for the
newest photo's. On the right.: Miuccia Prada and Mia Carmen
in our neighbors tulip field. Spring is here!
28-03-2010 We start to settle
in our normal routine again. Of course we miss the puppies
but at the same time we now have fun and quality time with
our own puppy, Mia Carmen. We where very pleased to receive
so many e-mails with updates and pictures. Thank you all
for that, it helps me to take some distance from these "puppychildren"
to see them all happy in their own homes with their own
families. Well, we will be outside more and more since the
weather is getting better. I have started with my Bracco
friendly garden. We will post news on our BLOG,
it will be fun for you to follow up. On picture our
old lady Gucci she will teach Mia Carmen how to understand
22-03-2010 The puppies are
now nine weeks old. Coccapani went Sunday to his co-owner.
This morning Moana and Trussardi left with their new owners.
The past day's where very busy but good. We have done some
nice things like visiting Steef and Mariotto during their
hunting test. The first test of this year. The results of
Mariotto and Steef where super. A B-diploma and their team
end up as 2th best team of the day! We where impressed.
The last pictures from the puppies are now on the Ala D'Oro
puppy update. From now on new pictures of the puppies will
be on their own pages. But you will find this week a lot
of news about them on our BLOG.
15-03-2010 The puppies are
today eight weeks old. This morning our Danish friends took
Coccinella to their home. Until next weekend it will still
be a little busy in our house but then the last three puppies
will go to their new homes. I think we will need some time
to adjust to the quit moments. And we will miss them as
you understand. Lucky we have received the official Kennel
Club pedigree for all the puppies, so this will be a good
excuse to bring it up to the puppies houses (the ones that
live in Holland of course) as soon as possible.
Also check out the news and new pictures at our BLOG.
08-03-2010 The puppies are
today seven weeks old. This is the week where some of the
puppies will go to their new owners. The puppy campbell
test and the hunting intelligent test has shown that all
puppies have potention to become an excellent pointing dog.
We have made our choice who we are going to keep from this
excellent litter and Mia Carmen (see picture on the right)
is one of them..... This week we are going to enjoy our
puppies as long as we can. Hopefully the weather will help
us and give us much sun so we can play with our puppies
in the garden!
01-03-2010 The puppies are
today six weeks old. Last week I started the week to say
that the puppies did not have a busy schedule. Well during
the week it came clear that this was not the case. Last
week we have had many unplanned visitors who wanted to see
these puppies before they leave for their new home. They
have been socialized with with a lot of new things. The
only thing that is not possible yet is that the puppies
can run around in our garden. Our weather has been very
poor. To much bad weather to let the puppies go out. Hopefully
this week will bring day's without rain, keep your fingers
crossed for us!
The puppies are today five weeks old. Only a few weeks away
that they go to their new owners. The puppies are easy,
they all eat well. And they keep on track to our eat, play
and sleep scheme This week we will have lot's of visitors.
And Wednesday our friend Ingrid will take care of our puppies
for thefirst time. The puppies does not ahve a busy program,
they can just enjoy.
Enjoy our puppy children.
15-02-2010 The puppies of Mot
and Baldo are four weeks old. They are doing realy well.
We hope to welcome Baldo's owner from Italy soon and we
are curious what he think of our sweet puppies. Well we
have had many visitors last week and weekend and all visitors
were impressed. I hope I find time to update daily this
week since I have a busy week and the puppies at work and
Jaap is very busy to get the row deer in front of his shotgun
and puppysit when I am at work.
Enjoy our puppy children.
Also check out the news at our BLOG.
08-02-2010 The puppies of Mot
and Baldo are three weeks old. Coming week we will try to
teach them to eat without making a big mess. This is the
age that they will play more with each other and they start
to look like real Bracchi. We have had many visitors last
week and weekend and all visitors were impressed. We enjoy
our puppy children.
We received the entree card for the TOP DOG of the year
show. Our Motje is again invited for this prestigious show.
It seems that only dogs from Ala D'Oro kennel were qualified
to enter this year. But this is no news, it has happen many
time before! Well although Motje look great we do not think
the judge would like to see such large breast. And this
show is next weekend ;-)
01-02-2010The puppies of Mot
and Baldo are two weeks old. Their eyes opened up and we
also think they can hear a little. Day's fly by in Zuidermeer.
Last week I did not seem to find the time to update the
webpage as I wanted to do. I promiss to better myself this
week. This weekend we had visitors, future owners of the
puppies. Some of the new owners already have Bracco and
we know them for years. We had a very nice weekend together
with our visitors. We put our daily reports and pictures
of the litter on multiple pages, Ala D'Oro Puppy Update!
We are now at WEEK 2
23-01-2010The puppies of Mot
and Baldo are seven day's old. They are doing really well.
Also Mot is doing great. Our job this week was mainly to
make nice pictures and make sure that the puppies and Mot
got all what they wanted. This coming week (before day ten,
new rule by the KC) we have to send our puppy names the
to the Kennel Club . Of course we think we have managed
again to find ten lovely Italian names for these sweeties.
Now we only have to wait until the Kennel Club employee
will come when the puppies are 5-7 weeks old to give them
a identify chip so we can connect the names together to
the puppies. We put our daily reports and pictures of the
litter on multiple pages, Ala D'Oro Puppy Update! We are
now at WEEK 1. Go to Ala D'Oro Puppy Update and make a choice
with week you want to see!
17-01-2010The puppies of Mot
and Baldo are born! We have 10 puppies, it all went well.
Mother and children are doing really well. We have to work
hard now to provide the information about this litter to
all people on our waitinglist. Of course it will be possible
to follow up this litter. Just as what we have done with
previous litters we have put a special puppy page on th
einternet. We will put here our daily reports and pictures
of the litter for you to follow. We call this page, Ala
D'Oro Puppy Update! For our friends abroad there is also
our skype webcame with live pictures from the litterbox,
just to bond already!
And be aware that every day we or others have something
to report on our BLOG.
10-01-2010Despite Miuccia Prada
enormous pregnant belly she is still in best limber and
fit. This morning we only walked briefly in Obdam. It was
just too cold, not nice at all to walk there. So this picture
was taken this morning in our garden. We are really ready
to say hello to "Mot's" puppies. I would say let them come!
Yesterday I have posted some new pictures again. Now a call
to all owners of an Ala D'Oro bracco, "let them come the
new pictures of your dog(s)" the volume of the webpage
is updated again!
01-01-2010The New Year has
begun! Our pregnant Miuccia Prada "Motje" is growing steadily.
This picture has been taken this morning and you can see
on "Mot's" belly that it is only two weeks to
await the birth of her puppies. In the meantime you can
see at our website the first new photo's that owners from
Ala D'Oro kennel have sent to us. I'm pretty busy with this
so check regularly for new updates. Also new on our page,
Stephanie's report about Mariotto hunting day in Germany.
