We've also participated for fun with the Breedersclass. But because they're just 6 months old and Comedy's head is too much different then those from her sisters we didn't make any chance (quiet rightly by the way). But it was good practise for them and they did it marvelous  for the first time with 3 sisters next to eachother!

New pics on the puppypage


And this is one of the most impressive pictures that were taken during delivery; this is a just born GPM, stil in amnions and not yet breading on his own yet.

And this is another picture we wanted to share with you all; a Macthree's puppy only 1 day old....


There're people who wonder how a Great pyrenees  can easily deliver 7 puppies, variating in weight from 570 gram till 652 gram in 3½ hours....

This is Caitlin on April the 30th so 1 day before delivery. Except for being determined by heredity, she's also in topshape by the daily exercise she gets. The white spot you see on the right in the picture, is our old "smart" chicken that hid herself in the bushes and that's why I didn't notice it before I already released our dogs and was shooting picyures of our dogs; Cait did notice.....


A great Champion is gone..... The grandfather off our newborn litter, F CH. Surcouf du Domaine de Peyrac has died on 02-05-2009, just one day after the birth of his grandchildren with us. This dog has put his marks on the breeding off Du Domaine de Peyrac of Catherine Gaubert and was known for his strong inheritage off a proud attitude and gorgious "Peyrac eyes"". We wish Catherine a lott off strenght to cope with this terrible loss.


With pride, happiness and gratitude we hereby announce the birth of our first MACTHREE litter on 01-05-2009. NL. Int. B. CH Uchan Caronne du Domaine de Peyrac JW'04 JBS'04 KS'08 MMT'07  and DJK CHJK LUJK Alta Colina's Gurine Gropa KBS'08 have become the proud parents of 2 handsome boys and 5 pretty girls after an effortless delivery of 3½ hours

Proud Mammy keeps her babies cleeen

18.55 Bitch 3 weight: 580 gram

The puppies look healty and powerfull and Mamma is taking very good care off her children. More pictures soon to come.  We only have just 1 girl available out off this combination, the 2 gentlemen and 4 other ladies are already reserved.


Ultrasound off Caitlin with many thanks to Karin Scholten of Kennel La Joie Blanche! Click on the picture to see the unborn puppies of Catlin and Caronne



Yesterday I had again an unique ecperience (with thanks to Karin Scholten of La Joie Blanche) Together we took Caitlin for an Ultrasound with moving images. Caitlin is now 40 days pregnant from our Caronne and at this time you can see the little organs, spinal and even the differents between males and females!

I'm still wrestling to make the movie less heavier for the website. As soon as we've managed that, we'll put it on the site.



Second ultrasound. The puppies have clearly grown!

And these are my most favourit pictures to make: showing so well the loving and caring bond between owner and dog:

In the meanwhile we're still busy in our "dreamhouse" in Belgium, our old house in Rotterdam is sold and we finally also have internet so we can update our site again on regular bases. Our "babies" our doing fine and hundreds off photos are already made.


Article published in the Magazine “Los Vast” (the magazine for trainers and instructors , which is published by O&O, de Dutch Club for Instructors in Dog raising and –education) with pictures off Alta Colina's Crem de la Crème "Keldo" en Uchan Caronne du Domaine de Peyrac. 

The article was written and published on my website in August 2008 in response to the ridicules articles that appeared in the papers about the PMD being a notorious, fearless and ferocious monster. I was totally shocked that our beautiful breed was described like that!

Luckily at that time our Dutch kennel club made a request to our breeding club for adjusting the breed description, especially concerning character and behaviour, on their official website. I’ve made the adjustments, made the differences in raising and behaviour of a “working PMD and a domestic, socially well raised PMD very clear and since August 2008 the new description is published on the official website of our Kennel club.
The article has been published in a softer way of writing (because we all know “my straight to the point technique) by Leo Leunissen (editor O&O) and he has also put 2 of my most favourite pictures with it; Caronne and Lotta and certainly my most favourite one: beautiful Keldo and I in Norway. Thank you so very, very much!!

I've passed my exam for the Pyrenean Mountain dog! Everybody THANX for the moral support that day. And thank you for the congrets, flowers and cards I received!

Special thanks from the judges goes to the breed exam commission, Ilona, Karin and Claire for putting up a perfect learning traject for the Aspirant judges and learning material in which we could find all the answers we needed for the theory!


Sadley Celice has lost her puppies. Some puppy buyers wait for our next litter, some puppy buyers decided to get a puppy from some Dutch kennels we recommended but some puppy buyers decided to get their puppy from kennel  Alta Colina in Norway were almost the same combination (du Domaine de Peyrac x Alta Colina) was done as ours.

A few breeders were mad that our puppy buyers went abroad for a puppy. I don't know why because an intelligent puppy buyer decides him/herself when and where they buy a puppy. Anyway; we wish all our puppybuyers good luck and succes with their new puppies;we certainley meet again!


16-10-2008 We're so happy; our Celice is pregnant!

After she'd played her own little game, our Celice is finally IN HEAT!!

And the lady felt it: she knew she could keep one of her babies at the moment we would found our house we've always dreamed about! 

Our Keldo is gone  

It’s Friday night and a SMS is coming in. He, nice, it’s Beate from Norway. Aad opens the message and suddenly I see a total bewildered look on his face. Full of unbelief he says: “Keldo”, and he can’t talk no more. “He’s dead” runs immediately through my mind but apparently I spoke it out loud because Aad nods yes. Still I don’t want to believe it and I grab the mobile out off his hands.  "Keldo is dead, we've just found him", I read. How is that possible, he’s only 3 years of age? I call with Beate and Berit and I hear the terrible grief in their voices. I don’t even want to think about how Arne’s feelings are at the moment; Keldo was his favourite. Actually Keldo was everybody’s favourite, also of Aad and me. And despite he wasn’t actually ours, it has always felt that way.

Beate and I were always talking about “our” Keldo, the dog we were so proud off and who came so close to perfection to the ultimate Pyr we had in mind.  Actually it still didn’t dawn on us till the next day when it was really published on Beate’s site and then you realize; it’s true, we’ll never see him again and then the tears come.

This hurts so very, very bad; Keldo, only sun of our Caldo has died from a stomach turn at the age off 3 years old and the grief is huge, of course with everybody in
Norway but also with us.

A dog, born out off a combination of dogs that both lay so close to our hearts: Norwegian Kelly with her gorgeous body and unforgettable smile and our Caldo with his gorgeous head and unfortunately less stabile hindquarters.

2 Giant puppies are born out off this combination; one, unfortunately, doesn’t survive the labour, but Keldo does. Alta Colina’s Crem de la Crème; his nickname is Keldo, a name which is a combination off the name of his father and mother.

From the beginning he’s special; except for his hindquarters; he’s for Beate and me a dream that came true as we’re searching for the ultimate Pyrenean Mountain dog that we’ve in mind; gorgeous, an impressive body, a wonderful head with dreamy eyes and the magnificent character from as well his father as his mother.

We knew we couldn’t “correct” the hindquarters in one generation but the biggest part of our dream came already through in that magnificent head, body and marvellous character. As a puppy he’s already a great personality who steals everybody’s heart at the moment he looks at them. He didn’t even have to make any efforts for it; he achieved that by just being present and effortlessly he wraps everybody around his little paw.

Each time I went to
Norway, he was the first one I looked for; “my” Keldo, my favourite, my marvellous dog and to Beate and me, our hope for the future.  When we meet for the first time it’s love at first sight from both sides. Then still a very young Pyr but he was overwhelming, impressive in exterior and superior in character. We look at each other and there’s an instant click; I realize why when he stands up to me because then I look in the eyes of our Caldo; bizarre! Every time I arrive in Norway, he’s waiting for my happily barking; one time he even came to fetch me from the airport. Or Beate and I go to a park or go high up into the mountains, on all trips he’s there with us because he’s our special guy.

The last time I hugged him was in November 2007, during my last trip to
Norway. I then took a picture of him which will always be etched on my memory; that marvellous giant and tiny Enya, daughter of Beate and Hans-Erik. A realistic picture which is impressive and touching at the same time and which so clearly shows what a great dog he was.

Luckily he has already descendants of which a.o. Ruth is at kennel Alta Colina. And 2 weeks ago 10 puppies are borne at kennel Chenespace in
Finland in which he’ll live on. And with this generation we go further, with the hope that again such a magnificent, lovable dog as Keldo will come out of it.

And a mating of our CH Uchan "Caronne" du Domaine de Peyrac??? News about that is coming soon.....

18-05-2008 On the 18th of May I've published (without mentioning any names) a piece to warn puppy buyers where to pay attention to when they're planning to buy a puppy. I've put my fingers on some hot items that just a few breeders practise. It caused a lot off commotion under that same few breeders. The majority of the breeders that did and still do their job very well didn't, quite rightly, felt attacked.  
17-05-2008 Suddenly besides a new Belgium Champion also a real Royal family in the house. At the show in Wieze, Belgium Celice became, just like last year, "Hop Queen" (Best bitch), CAC CACIB BOS, Caitlin became Hop Princess and Caronne became Hop King (Best male) CAC CACIB. And were last year Celice became the BOB, it was now Caronne who became the BOB and officialy Belgium Champion.

The mighty  "Lord of the Showrings" is gone

We've received the sad, sad news that one of the Greatest Dogs in the world has passed away on the 21th of March 2008. Father of our Celice, Multi Champion Cubilons Hann-Hund Homage "Martin" will certainly be missed and the showring will never be the same again without his presence. We wish Hilde a lot of strength to bear this terrible loss.

Gone but not forgotten; he'll always be remembered in our hearts

02-03-2008 New show result Caitlin. At the moment she has the chance to finish her Dutch Junior Championship, Caitlin throws off her coat completly. In combination with the fact that a lot of judges don't want to give the "large breed" Junior an Excellent (like Juniors need in Holland to get the JCAC) because they're not finished yet; is not much good! We'll see what that brings.......  

Caitlin again 2 times Best Junior and now official Swiss Junior Champion! and Celice again 2 times Best Bitch in Fribourg, Switzerland. The results from last weekend:

The Meillieur Montagnes Trofee is yearly given by the Dutch Breed Club for the most winning Pyrenean Mountain Dog, male as well as female, that has gained the most winning points on Dutch CAC(IB) shows during the year. With 64 points out off 13 shows, our Lies cann't be beaten anymore.  For the males it's Caronne who's on top off the most winning list at the moment.

26-11-2007 New showresults. Jergan Champion class 1 EX CAC CACIB BOS = Winner 2007. Celice Champion class 1 Ex res. CAC + CACIB = 2e Best Bitch. Caronne Champion class 3 Ex. Cailtin and Fjerla didn't come further this time then 2 VG en 3 VG but brother Famyran, (sun of Jergan) became Junior Winner 2007. The "Brother and Sister On Tour" reaches the end, in any case for the Benelux.

But for now the "wrong" one is in heat and that's lttle Caitlin. That means my mother gets a guest again. Our Mam is an energetic, intelligent, boldly acting lady who's 71 years young for which we feel a lot of love and respect. Everytime one of the ladies gets in heat, they're going to stay with Grandma. She's also the one that babysits our dogs (and our sun!) when we go away for a weekend. It will be hard to miss baby Caitlin but in any case we leave her safe behind in very trusted hands.....

(Future) Ancestor of Kennel Macthree

Dutch Champion Uchan Caronne du Domaine de Peyrac JW'04 JBS'04

Most Winning Pyrenean Mountain Dog 2007 Male

Name: Caronne Born: 05-12-2003

HD A/free and  Officially Patella free 0/0

Father: Ch. Surcouf du Domaine de Peyrac
Mother: Romance du Domaine de Peyrac

owner: Marina Nieuwenhuizen Kennel Macthree Nederland.

It looks like the song “Born free” of Andy Williams has been written especially for Caronne. He’s is an adventurer that loves to be outside night and day to patrol on his territory. All guard- and herder instincts that should be present in a Pyrenean Mountain dog are fully present in him. Loyal for and most protective about everybody he loves; courageous and fearless against everybody and everything that threatens that, no matter how big or tall. He can clearly see a distinction between what’s right or wrong; in Caronne all working qualities are united that a PMD should possess naturally. He needs space and freedom and could easily survive in the wild. Caronne is born in a real pack where the leader of the pack, in this case his father Ch. Surcouf du Domaine de Peyrac, ruled/rules with his several ladies. Everything passed and passes off according the rules of the pack and it are these rules that Caronne knows very well and lives up to. At the moment Celice was old enough to take the leadership in our house, he accepted it immediately knowing she was the best Against people, children, other animals and bitches Caronne is very affectionate and kind, towards other males he has less tolerance, caused by some experiences in his “puppy hood” (do you want to know more about that, read “Brutus and the rest”). Caronne is crazy about babies and children; he always wants to look in prams. He also loves to swim, is very, very clever and listens marvellous: just whisper “front” and within 2 seconds he’s in front of you, no matter were we’re at that moment.

Caronne is a “French type” dog according to the original standard with a withers height of 75 cm (standard 70 cm till 80 cm with a tolerance of 2 cm above the maximum for the perfect type). Compared to the modern (sometimes too big) males, he seems small but he’s proportional very well build, massive muscled, very good angulated and has an easy, fluent gait. He has the perfect scissors bite, tight lips, gorgeous eyes and a very expressive head of which you can read al his states of mind. He also has a beautiful long fur of which I hope he will pass it on to his descendants. Like his father he also has a born proud attitude, especially when he’s on his own territory. Caronne is always happy (except when he sees another male; that’s why he doesn’t like shows that much) and his tail is constantly wagging all day long. He’s indefatigable and can easily run for an hour in full speed when the boss takes him with him for a bicycle trip. Nicknames: Prince Peyrac, Peyracje (little Peyrac), Devil.

Father of Caronne is the world-famous French Champion Surcouf du Domaine de Peyrac. A dog who has descendants all over the world and who possesses a born proud, arrogant attitude and beautiful dark Peryrac eyes: till now both qualities has been passed on strongly to his descendants.


Mother Romance is nowadays enjoying her old age and is a veteran who’s in an extraordinary condition because all dogs in this kennel run freely all days outside in different packs


(future) Mother of Kennel Macthree:

Alta Colina’s Den Dama NJK CHJK LUJK

Most Winning Pyrenean Mountain Dog 2007 Female

Name: Celice Born:

HD A /vrij Officially Patella free 0/0

Father: Multi CH. CubIlons Hann-Hund Homage “Martin”
Mother: Norwegian CH. Beachbears Guapa Joya de Ora “Kaya”

Owner: Marina Nieuwenhuizen, kennel Macthree, The Netherlands
 Co-owner: Beate Konstad, kennel Alta Colina,

The character description on Celice’s page is from the time she was about 1 year old. In the meantime she has been grown till a lovable, quiet and stabile dog who still likes a lot of cuddling. She’s very caring; and she sees our Caitlin as her own pup and watches over her like a hawk. Luckily she has grown over her demolishing period and she listens with the best of terms, as well in – as outdoors. She’s the consequent leader of the pack at our house and the other dogs have to listen; even our gentlemen! A few things haven’t been changed; she still chats too much and still likes to have the last word. She’s still very smart and rather born tired; at the moment she sees the bike, our lady is gone! Her biggest hobby is still food (and I think it will always stay that way). At the moment her nickname is just Lies(ie) only if she does something what we don’t like it is CELICE!!!!!!!!

Celice is also a proud, powerful and healthy dog and she radiates that, also in the ring. Many judges are impressed by her powerful body and gait and appreciate her proud radiation. For that she has been rewarded many times (and still is) with the best show results. She comes out of a qualitively good litter; as well on the health part as the exterior part.  Till now already 5 dogs out of this litter are Champion on the age of 2 years; this is worldwide unique! Not ever has a litter brought forward so many Champions on this young age as this litter. 4 Off these Champions are already X-rayed and all HD A/free. Also 4 off these Champions are checked on Patella (of which Celice and brother Jergan on the official, independent way which is required for Dutch Pyrs from of January 1st 2008 in Holland) and all Patella free 0/0.

Sadly this combination can never be repeated again because the mother of this D litter, Ch. Beachbears Guapa Yoja de Ora died on a too early age by a stomach turn. This condition appears when (mainly large dogs) don’t get/take rest enough after a large amount of food or (and that is less known) water. Unfortunately this can happen to every dog and is not inheritable. It’s important that you give your dog a rest for minimal one hour after a large meal, or even better, you divide the food over a few portions a day. Be sure that your dog don’t take too much water in once by f.i. hot weather.

Celice’s mother was also a beautiful, healthy dog (HD A/free and PL 0/0) with a marvellous character who carefully took care off her puppy’s so well
Daddy Martin, Multi Champion Cubilons Hann-Hund Homage still causes a furore in the show ring and his nickname is “Lord of the Show ring”. Also a powerful, healthy dog (HD A/free and PL 0/0) who has many BOB, BIG and BIS victories on his account and he still goes on doing that even at the age of 7 years. He’s a stabile dog with a magnificent character and at home he’s the leader of the pack which consists out of 4 males who all live harmonically together; quit a unique situation too!

Lausanne, Switzerland: Celice 2x CAC CACIB, 2x Best Bitch and International Champion Caitlin 2x Jeugd CAC and 2x Meillieur Jeune (Best junior) and on Sunday 2nd Best Bitch.

Where Celice was clearly tired last week at the KCM after already 2 shows that weekend and didn't show herself on her best , she now was clearly in the mood. With tough competition from beautiful heads, she entered the ring with her usual attitude and arrogance again and won her 18th! CACIB. The obligated time of 366 days between the 1st and 4th CACIB was finally over and she now is also International Champion. Caitlin won Junior class and became Best Junior and Caronne, completely out of coat gained 4 Ex in Champion class. Judge Mrs. B. Muller (CH).

When we arrived on the show the second day, we didn't had the slightest idea that our dogs would surpass their achievements from the day before. But they did! Under breed specialist Alain Pecoult (F), Celice became Best Bitch again (and deserved by that her 2nd Swiss CAC and her 19th CACIB), Caitlin became Best Junior again and this time she also became 2nd Best Bitch. Our little Caronne won the 3th place in Champions classe. Proud because our dogs made such an achievement, we drove home; tired but very, very satisfied; what a show weekend!

Brother and Sister “On Tour” part 5. Again ranking for the “Norwegians” in the Main ring. Celice BOS, Jergan BOB and BIG 3. It went wonderful again for brother and sister. Also Jergan has now won a group placement on this show after being selected several times during other shows.  Caronne became 1 VG and “little Norwegian Troll” Caitlin, who’s exactly 9 months today, was entered in junior class for the first time. She achieved 1Ex. Junior CAC and took also the reserve CAC (second best bitch) home. As her sister Celice is already Dutch Champion, the reserve will be a fully adult CAC for her. Hereunder you find her first report from the junior class.

Feminine picture of exactly 9 months old. Beautiful proportions in body. Head in proportion to the body which of course, still needs to mature. Good set ears, Complete bite. Lip should be a bit more tighter. Good eyes. Good neck- and topline .Fine legs and feet. Good tail. Dewclaws present. Very good coat.Flee-floated gait. Beautiful temperament. 1 Exellent Junior CAC and res. CAC.

But the big BANG came in the afternoon when handsome Jergan entered the main ring for the judgement off group FCI 2. Cheered by a group of enthousiastic Pyrlovers he (and Rieky of course) gaited beautifully and he gained 5 BIG under judge P. Roosenboom(B)

In Holland and Belgium we already have a hard time to get a PMD selected in the group, let alone a ranking, but still brother and sister manage it regularly lately and this BIG 3 was another jewel on the crone of the “Brother and Sister Tour”. And the tour still goes on…

In the mean time in Norway took daddy of Celice and Jergan (Martin) the BOB and their sister Alta Colina’s Donna Diosa took the BOS on the same show. Martin won with the siblings of Celice en Jergan, Alta Colina's Donna Diosa, -Dorado, Don Diablo en Don Juan, Prodigee class and took 4th Best Prodigee Group in Show.

Caitlin is the only Pup present and gets VP so Best Puppy. Sister Celice wins Open class (3 bitches present), becomes again  Best Bitch (= Lokerse Winner 2007) and beats this time her brother for the BOB. 

In the ring of honour Caitlin is again selected with the 8 best Puppies in Show by judge Mr V. O'Brien (IRL);  only 4 are ranked. And where Celice became 5 Best Junior in Show last year, she now was selected with the 7 Big FCI 2 by judge Mr N. Schuymere (B); also in this big group only 4 dogs were placed.

Nice to mention is that Jergan is the 5th Champion out of the succesfull D- litter of Alta Colina, Norway; so again one record broken!  "Brother and Sister On Tour"  will be continued next week


Our kennel name MACTHREE is official now. Because most of the people already knew/know us under the name of MAC³ , we've decided to make that official. As it's not allowed to use numbers in the kennel name, it has become MACTHREE. Hopefully first puppies under that name will be born at the beginning of 2008.

And by that Celice has become an aunt(ie) for the first time. Fore more information contact Rieky and Wim van de Berk   
23-12-2006 I've received my most wanted Christmas present today; I 've passed my exames Exterior and Movements.  

New showresult of Celice

I have my final exams within a few days. In one hour there’ll be decided if my greatest wish at the moment will come true. After two and a half years of studying, the time is finally there; coming Saturday the 23th are the exams of Exterior and Movements; the final exams of the route to become an aspirant judge. It’s has influence on everything that makes live normally goes so smoothly.  Lately I forget everything what DOESN’T has anything to do with a dog, what doesn’t look like a dog, what doesn’t behave like a dog and if it doesn’t move like a dog it’s not interesting at all at the moment.

It’s a long time ago that I’ve looked at a dog in a normal way: at the moment I’m dissecting all dogs completely! The dog of the neighbours that I always liked so much, turns out to be not that beautifully build at all according to the ideal dog” (who does really not exist) and his gait with the funny little skips that I also liked so much, isn’t a good sign either. While I’m talking with the owner, my hands glide automatically over the dog, to find out what is wrong with him an why he’s doing that. “What are you doing?”, she asks me curiously. “O, I’m just checking his angulations”, I reply as if she automatically has to know what the angulations are of a dog. She stares at me with a look in her eyes like: “she has a screw loose, till now I wasn’t sure about it but now I know it for sure”. “Oh, but the dog is all right then?”, she asks me. “Of course”, I reply and I quickly walk on while I’m saying round my back: “But it’s beautiful dog, though”!

At home it’s apparently also hard for everybody to live with me; even for the dogs. At the moment I take my books, the dogs quickly run off in every direction just to be not in my neighbourhood when I want to check on their bodies if it’s all true what’s written in the books. The one who lies the closest to me is the dupe! When I got them they’ll be thoroughly examined and measured.  The “Great White Ones” are used to it and are undergoing it resignedly. But Chelsey the Beagle doesn’t have a clue why I’m poking in her body. As our lady is in a well-fed condition at the moment (and that’s an understatement!), I have to poke a bit in her to feel something through all those fat layers of her. But after a few times she’s also used to it and she shows herself with unforeseen show qualities. Don’t even have to put a leg in a proper position; she stands naturally perfect as if she has done it all of her life.

can draw the teeth of all my dogs while I'm sleeping at the moment. They all have different fore breasts Caronne stands the closest to the “ideal dog” concerning his well placed shoulder and with the most desirable angulation of 55- 60° and his beautiful rear angulations. Chelsey stands on a well deserved 2nd place in spite of her to round rib curves, Caldo has the most beautiful fore breast and rib curves and Celice scores high points with her top- and underline. Last 2 are both (breed typically) not that angulated so according to the standard that’s good but according to the ideal dog not. So I’ve 4 dogs at home and not one off them measures up to the so called “ideal dog”. Also all the dogs Sonja and I saw and felt on ring training, shelters and shows don’t come close to (the not existing) “ideal dog”. We’ve both judged (or I better say: dissected and run down) our own breed typically dogs (she also has 4) and not one off the champions can apply for the ideal dog”. Every dog has something that’s according to the “ideal dog” not okay. “Where o, where can I find that ideal dog?” That’s one off my burning (dog) questions at the moment.

I look at Aad, my husband and slow but sure his head turns into a dog’s head. Almost automatically I write in the mind’s eye my judging report: Head proportional to body, scissors bite with some irregular incisors beneath. Good set ears and carriage, eyes: beautiful dark brown. Good fore breast, - dept and – curve. Well muscled neck and shoulder. Tail set, - carriage and – length:…………………… “Marien, how many?”, I hear Aad say from somewhere far, far away. Without even thinking I answer: “20 to 23”. Bewildered he looks at me: “you need 23 packages of coffee?!”. “No, a dog has 20 to 23 tail vertebrae’s or wasn’t that the question?”  “I’ll be the most happy man in the world when you’ve finished your exams coming Saturday”, he answers.

Show results Maastricht, Holland Jergan and Celice

We had entered Caronne but didn't took him with us. He’s not co-operating with us; he’s still completely out of coat and it has no use to show your dog in his summer coat for a Norwegian judge. On top off that he hadn’t eaten for 2 days because he has his mind on whooooooooole other things at the moment.

The for everybody (in Holland) unknown Norwegian judge Mr. Lie had provided the most highest entries of 19 PMD’s  on a Dutch show till now this year. Till now the entries varied from 3 till (2x) 10 entries per show. Unfortunately the judge failed to appear by illness.

Caldo did his first show in Norway

Caldo was entered on a Norwegian show this weekend, judge J. Jakobsen (N)  and even made the wheel (see pictures for prove)


Celice is staying with Grandma again

He drove us mad, even separated from each other, Caronne kept on going whining and howling because our lady is in heat again. Moaning and barking and of course trying to do certain things while they’re in the same room. Celice growls and snarls him off of her because what she knows, he apparently doesn’t know. It isn’t time yet but try to explain that to a terrible macho who, by the true his body whistling hormones, doesn’t know what he’s doing anymore. He shows himself off, offers her his food (doesn’t eat himself) and even his bone, submits himself completely to her; everything and anything to please Celice.

His marvellous smell goes through doors and floors and hundreds of meters far. Celice slept, against custom, for 2 days on our bedroom. Her irresistible, lovely smell barricaded by 2 doors and floors but still he kept us awake with his touching whining and howling because Prince Peyrac does absolutely not suffers in silence!!

Also when he’s outside in the kennel he has no rest. Every dog that goes by, in front of, besides or round the back of our house he smells. And they all are in his mind a potential danger because Celice is HIS girl and nobody else’s! So Celice has gone to Grandma again.

Caronne kept on searching and sniffing the house for two whole days more with a blaming look in his eyes towards us. But apparently he has given up all hope now and today he has eaten for the first time in days but still with the unbelievable sad look in his eyes. And then there was only one Pyr left in the house; we miss them terribly and it’s
so unbelievable quiet at home!

The photo album is still not repaired yet. As you might have noticed, you can’t enlarge the pictures no more. For this I have to up load all the pictures again to the website and at the moment there’s simply no time for it. Within a short time you can expect a new photo album of Caldo’s stay in Norway

Were're back in Holland again. First thing we did, was picking up Caronne. He stayed in Holland during our holliday and was very well taken cared of by Caroline and her contributors from "De Bommel" a boarding house for dogs.

They already knew the breed so that was a great reassurance for us. Besides that they've large (playing) pastures where the dogs can play as much as they want. For us it was the first time that we let Caronne stay with somebody else during a holliday and at first we didn't feel happy about it. But every time we called Prins Peyrac was happy playing, ate well (gain some weight again) and he was even swimming in a pool. He had the time of his life so Caroline and contributors; thank you so much for taking care of Caronne so well (and for the hugs you gave him during his stay with you all) and the returning of still very happy and cheerfull dog.

07-06-2006 New showresult: Celice was judged 1 Excellent in Youth class by Mr. F.Schweizer (CH) and has captured her second Junior CAC

With the judging of the FCI 2 group we see a positive development lately.Finally PMD's are going to be rankend in the group. In Holland the judging of group 2 is like comparing apples to pears. There're a lot of breeds in this group with a big variety of appereances and heights, varying from 25 cm till dogs over the 85 cm. You see the Dwarf Pinscher next to the Saint Bernard, the Dwarf Schnauzer next to the Mastiff, the English Bulldog next to the Pyrenean Mountain dog, and so on. But Dedale du Mas de Beauvoisin was ranked twice this year in Goes and Lelystad. Symfonie van Merode Evita did exact the same in Eindhoven and together with her brother Symfonie van Merode Elgar she's very succesfull in couple class. Last monday they even became Best couple in Show. Congratulations!!!

Beneath you'll find the article about the introduction of the Junior Championship in Holland

The Sense or Nonsens of the introduction of the Youth/Junior Championship in Holland

the 1st of January 2006 they’ve introduced the Youth Championship in Holland . A Junior can deserve in class 9 till 18 months a Youth CAC (Championship award) if he/she gets the qualification 1 Excellent. After to have won 3 Junior/ Youth CAC’s under 3 different judges they’ll become Dutch Youth Champion. This title is also to be considered as the first CAC to the adult Dutch Championship.

Well that’s nice wouldn't you think; finally owners of juniors are to be stimulated to enter their Juniors on shows in
Holland . In the surrounding country’s it’s already long common that the junior counts during every show that is held. They can win the Youth Championship from the relative countries, special Youth Titles are to be won and on every show you see the best junior from every breed appear in the ring of honour of which the Best Junior in Show is to be chosen. Till now in Holland only the Winner in Amsterdam was appealing to enter your junior, because there you can win, besides the Winner title for the adult dogs also the title Youth winner.

The second reason for not entering a junior (and then especially the large breeds like the PMD) ) on a Dutch show with Dutch Judges was/is that there are still a few judges that strictly  handle the rules according to Raad van Beheer no matter the age of the dog. That rules is: The qualification excellent is for those dogs that live up in such a way to the standard that a minor defect or fault the ideal picture of the breed not disturbs and the quality of the dog is in such a way that he /she can be to considered Champion worthy.

A good rule you would say and I couldn’t agree more. Only I would like to supplement it nowadays with: make allowances for the dog’s age.

Juniors from large breeds are far from ready on that age (9-18 months) They need a few years to become fully grown. For instance: to get a steady and stabile movement, the growing discs which in first instant are made out of cartilage, shall have to be boned first. But still there're some judges that use the movement as an excuse to give the big junior a Very Good instead of an Excellent. But I wouldn’t be pleased if my dog already shows the movement of a grown dog on that age. That would mean to me that my dog already has stopped developing on a very early age. Of course I don’t mean that the big sized junior can stumble through the ring but may/must show the movement of a youth dog.

A great excuse to use is also:” the dog isn’t ready yet”. Well hello, can he please? The word speaks for itself; it’s a JUNIOR. The best you can compare a young Pyrenean Mountain dog with your son or daughter when they’re in puberty; they don’t know what to do with those suddenly long stilts. When I’m watching my sun during a football match, you see exactly which boy is in that stage. Before the growing spurt, the movements were smooth and easy. But when they come in the stage in which the body has to adjust to the increasingly longer growing bones then suddenly you see them bungle; they stumble over their own legs. After some time you see it decrease till finally it’s totally stabilized. If not then you can speak off a defect or in case of a qualification for the dog: A Very good, Good or in the most worst case an Average .

Now some practical samples of the judging of a young PMD

Eindhoven : a beautiful, impressive typical junior male (of 10 months) stands in the ring. Not quit used to the showing event yet but still you can’t go around his qualities and his movements are according to his age. Nice wouldn’t you think? WRONG!! According to the (another wise respected) judge is that the reason the dogs deserves a Very Good while this dog should at least deserved the Excellent and based on the dogs present, he at least deserved the reserve CAC!! He had a beautiful judging report by the way, with only a comment about his coat (he was starting to loose his coat) and the comment:” in movement not ready yet”.

Goes: For Celice her first Dutch show after they’ve introduced the Junior CAC. We already had a bad feeling about it because on this show the same judge as at Eindhoven would be judging today. Now knowing why he gave that beautiful male a Very Good then, didn’t promise any good. (and if we had known, we certainly hadn't entered Celice; we’re still not made of money) We let the dogs walk in the ring to get them used to it and Celice was certainly not inferior to the other bitches. She has the qualities; only she’s still not in full coat after her first heat. The judging began and where we were afraid of happened; she got a Very good because she was still a bit loose in movement according to the judge.

After the judging we went to the judge for an explanation about the qualification. He gave the following reason: To get an Excellent the dog has to be “Champion worthy” and that’s only possible when the dog is ready. Your dog will certainly win her prizes in future but I don’t think she’s ready at the moment. So he tells us that our dog has potential but he doesn’t reward her for it. We on our side also respected his decision and motivation, after all the dog isn’t ready yet on this age.

But why then the introduction of the Junior CAC?? Hasn’t there been any consultation with the association of judges in Holland.When you introduce the Junior CAC in Holland maybe the definition of Excellent (for a Junior) has to be changed in: “a dog who has the potential to become a Champion. Or like in Germany (till shortly) or Luxembourg (still) should a Very Good be enough for a CAC to justify the feelings of judges who think that you can’t give an Ex. to juniors because they aren’t ready yet. As long as this isn’t clear in Holland , is there any point in entering our juniors dogs on shows and to waist money on it? Must we (again) go abroad where they do judge the dogs on their age? Or just don’t enter your junior anymore with judges who have this way of thinking? What do you think?

With us the result was that we didn’t entered Celice for another show in Holland , Leeuwarden . We would only go to the show on which we had already entered her. And on the hand of the outcome of that show we should decide if it was worth anymore to show a qualitatively, beautiful young bitch in Holland .

What a piece of luck we did! There’s a young Dutch judge who sees in Celice all the qualities there are and he judges her by her age. Not a word about: “she isn’t ready yet” but “already good movements for her age”. And:” already on her age she shows excellent picture of the breed” and the most beautiful comment:  “a promise for the future”. You can’t imagine our happiness on that moment; so it is possible then in Holland!! On top of that she also became 2nd Best Bitch (7 bitches present) and deserved with that her first adult res. CAC. We also went to this judge but then to thank him that he judged Celice on her age. His answer? Well, why not? She’s a beautiful dog. So simple is it then.

Beneath you’ll find the judging report from this judge who gave us the motivation to go on showing our junior in Holland . The report shows clearly that he has judged Celice on her age. And for her age she’s an Excellent dog!

A very attractive young bitch. Already on this age she shows an excellent picture of the breed. Has excellent bone and substance. Beautiful shaped feminine head. Scissors bite. Very typical set and worn ears. Eyes could be placed a fraction more obliquely. She shows a bit white but has excellent pigmentation and a very appealing expression. Already excellent front/chest for her age. Already excellent neck- and top line, tail start and -carriage. For her age already good development of the body. Splendid coat condition. Already excellent movements for her age. A Dog with prospects. 1 Excellent, Junior CAC and res. CAC. 


Finally time to update the site. I’ve started today by adding the English version of the articles “Is your glass half empty or is it half full” and “How the story continued”. You can find them on the page “Brutus” at the end of the story. These articles are on my site for quit a while now (in Dutch) but I couldn’t find the time till now to translate them in English. There’s also an article on the site about the problems we have over here since they’ve introduced the Dutch Youth Championship in 2006. I’ll translate it as soon as possible.
New show result Celice. We’re back in Holland and were brought down to earth with a very loud bump! Our Swiss Youth Champion became 1 Very Good on a Dutch show.

12-04-2006 New link added from the site Regalia Great Pyrenees
A very informative site if you're planning to buy a puppy. After a dreadfull experience with her PMD Zeus, Sariena has made it almost her life's work to warn people where to pay attention to if they're planning to buy a puppy.

She goes through all stages from beginning to think about buying a puppy, till picking out the individual puppy. How do you find a reliable breeder and how do you recognize him/her? Which questions can/must the breeder ask you? Which questions can/must you ask the breeder concerning the health from the lines behind the puppies? When you're going to look at a litter; where do you have/need to pay attention to?

It's a long sit because there's a lot of information on the site. But before you think: "That takes too long and that's why I don't feel like it", read the story about Zeus (in memory). And experience of which you can keep your dog, yourself and your environment from. Sariena has done everything to keep Zeus but still had to let him go at the age of only 19 months......

The kennel is quite rightly proud on this combination from young, healthy dogs which have the most important French lines and the most important Scandinavian lines behind them. All the lines behind this outcross combination are Champions (with the exception of 2) but more important almost all HD A so free. The hope is of course that out of this combination healthy pups will be born with the beautiful body and hind quarters with the beautiful movement, as they’re known for in the Scandinavian countries, combined with the beautiful French head which is preferred and I must say the changes are very high! Do you need more information about this combination just contact email@altacolina.com . Or surf to their website to look at more pictures and the very impressive pedigrees (with all pictures) behind this combination http://www.altacolina.com 


Pirinejski Planinski Pas

In Croatia there’re no sites available about Pyrenean Mountaindogs. You can only find some articles on the internet. To put it stronger: when we first visited Croatia, in 2003, there were only 2 PMD’s existing in all of Croatia.

On the show where we had entered Caldo, there were only Italian and Slovenian PMD’s present; not one from Croatia. We already found that odd but when we went into town that evening and our little Caldo caused a huge stoppage in front off the terrace we sat, we entirely couldn’t believe what came over us. And this went on and on each day, and it became worse every day; everyone wanted to caress him, everyone wanted to take a picture of him. A strange thing was that nobody asked us what kind of breed he was. Usually this is the first question you get almost all of the time from people. But the strangest thing was that people made remarks about us having (a lot of) money. Till finally a man came to us with a newspaper and then we finally understood what was going on. The receptionist of the hotel translated it for us.


The article in the paper told us that a litter of PMD’s was born in Zaton. The litter came from the combination between the 2 only PMD’s existing on that moment in Croatia. 10 Puppies were born and it was important news; that important that it had made the national news. There was a story, telling us that in the early days PMD’s were sold/bought for the amount of $3,50 and that nowadays (2003) they’re worth € 1000,--!! each because of their rarity. Because they also had placed 2 pictures from Mamma, Pappa and the litter, Caldo was recognized by many people as being a Pirinesjki Planinski Pas and so apparently an expensive, threatened species.

At that moment we also understood the remarks about the money. They thought we were loaded because we could afford such a dog. The income and especially for the ones in the catering industry were very low. If you know that we had first-, main course and dessert including drinks for not even €10,--, p.p. in a good restaurant, and they still made profit, maybe then you can imagine what little money the people made over there.

On that holiday we’ve explained a lot of times to a lot of people that we (sadly) weren’t filthy rich and (the most important thing) that the breed wasn’t dying out and that there’re breeders all over the world to secure the existence of this beautiful breed.

Till next time, Mac3 


New pictures of Celice on the site Our lady is a bit out of coat at the moment but she's developing very well just like her brother Jergan

Further more we've received from Mr. Jung notice that Odin, sun of Duncan, became BOB four times on a row and has achived the AKC championship by that. He did that by beating d the nr. 1 Great Pyrenees of this moment. Odin is bred and owned by Mr. Jung and lives in Atlanta, America. He was entered in classe 12-18 month and is only 13 months old.

The next translation of Pyrenean Mountaindog is on the way

A bit sad news now; the exams for KK2 has been delayed till April/May. Very sad for our group but also for the people who are still waiting for the course Exterior and Movement, the following course which has to have enough participants will it start

The're puppies to be expected at Alta Colina, Norway and Caldo will become Grand Pa for the first time And there's a mating planned again for Caldo in Norway in the summer of 2006

Sorry, didn't know that your sites weren't to be seen through your messages. I've adjusted it

그레이트 피레니즈

This is the Korean translation of Pyrenean Mountain dog. I think most people know how it works but for  those who doesn't: copy the translation and past it in the searching frame.

Sadly enough there few Korean sites available with an English version; so impossible to read. The most beautiful Korean site is without no doubt Mr. Jung's with beautiful music, pictures and films about shows and an English version!

Mr. Jung is the proud owner of some Pyrs from the American type. They're imported from out of the USA from, a.o.  the well-known kennels Rivergroves and Summerhill. He also possess a Pyr of “Valle d'Aspe“ but behind this dog are also the bloodlines of Rivergroves and Summerhill. In the mean time he also has bred some offspring's of them.

One of his most striking dogs is without no doubt Duncan. A multiple Best in Group winner, Best in show winner and also American, International en Korean Champion.

If you haven't visited the site of Mr. Jung yet through the link on our site, we wish you a lot of pleasure while reading and viewing his site. You have to be a bit patience with the films before they start. But afterwards it's real nice to see how they show on the Korean way; complete with deep bows for the judges.

Till next week, Mac³


Several new links added

24-12-2005 Introduction website

Through circumstances we’ve “yanked” the site suddenly on line. But because I’ve a brief moment now, I really would like to thank a few people who helped me with the site. At first there’s of course (the very talented) Sandra from Sand webdesign which I drove crazy sometimes. Then we have Ursula Hock from Ursa’s Signum who’s responsible for the German translation. And I don’t want to forget Claire Billet who did the French translation for the page “About us”. And most of al my husband Aad for his patience during all the time I was behind the computer (or with my nose in books, that turns out to be the same for him) and didn’t had time for him.

After the first day on line we had many sweat and lovely reactions from a lot of people by email and guestbook about the story “Brutus and the rest”. We were very pleased by that; the story has called up these reactions where we were hoping for. The French translation will come in future; we’re busy with that. The German translating will be a “will be continued” story because Urs is very busy with her (Pyr) shops. We're even going to translate the story in Norwegian with help from Beate so it will also be readable for Scandinavian countries.

Further more it’s our intention to track down as many translations as possible from Great Pyrenean Mountain dog with interesting links from the belonging countries. In that way it will be possible to reach sites of unknown or less unknown breeders. Who knows, maybe you’ll find the stud you’re looking for. We’ve already found a lot of translations and from next week on we’re going to put them on our site.

By clicking on the button “News” (above the picture) you can see if there’s new information, photo’s and so on. We’re wishing we can welcome you back for many more times.

If we could all live in peace
If we could lovingly give happiness to each and every one
If we could give all onto everybody
Then the world would be a better place

While our thoughts are with Zoë, we wish you all a healthy, successful but most of all a lovable 2006….

Aad, Marina, Romano, Caldo, Caronne, Celice, Chelsey
