I live with my husband and our meanwhile 21 years old granddaughter in Saarbrücken at the "rabbit mountain". By occupation I am a teacher, but I am no longer employed since some years. Since I was a child I wanted to have a dog and we decided for a Newfoundland. In 1988 we visited the International Dog Show in Saarbrücken and there we became acquainted with the breeder of our first bitch. At that time we were inspired by "Gammel Dansk vom Riesrand" who was the winner on this day.
Our first bitch was "Okka vom Riesrand". She came in the autumn of 1988 to us, actually only planned as a family dog. Already soon we decided to buy a second bitch in addition. In the autumn of 1990 the brown female "Biserka vom Riesrand" came into our familay. With Okka and her we visited many shows. "Bessie" how she was called by us, was very successful on shows. She was shown more than 40 times and occupied 28 times first on exhibitions place. She achieved several champion titles.
After the study of many books, I seized the resolution to begin with the breeding. In 1992 our first ltter fell. From this litter we kept "Aline vom Kaninchenberg called "Linchen".
