Pica was a good size, high drive female with lots of temperament and extremely solid environmental nerves. From nature great hunt, search and apporting drives. Pica’s longattacks were spectacular, high and hard in combination with a convinced, solid, full and pushing grip on an IPO sleeve as well as the KNPV suit.
She was the type of female that we loved to have had the opportunity to add to our breeding program. Bloodline wise as well as character and drives were perfect for linebreeding back into the old Duco lines.
Pica was out of a very consistant quality litter which also proved she was no coincidence in breeding. She passed her character and drives in a dominant and consistant way by genetics.
Pica was also medically 100%.

Saturday, January 11th, around 11:30am the first pup was born followed by five more until about 17:30pm. So far in total were three males and three females; all nice healthy and dark pigmented pups. After things stayed calm; no signs of more pups coming. Tess was in very good condition; feeding and taking care of her pups as she should.
The next morning, Sunday, we decided to operate via c-section to get the rest of the pups out of her. A pup (dead already for a couple of days) was the reason for the complication. We managed to save two more females which brought us to a total of three males and five females; a wonderful litter.
Until about 6:30am on Monday everything seemed to go perfect. Two hours later at 8:30am, when we went to the kennel again, we found Tess dead. A terrible shock, it looked unbelievable but there was not much time to grieve. Like a reflex we began worrying about the noisey puppies who were hungry and wouldn't survive if we didn't react fast.
Bottle-feeding them one-by-one, phoning contacts and searching the internet for just-born litters. We finally found the perfect solution via Peter Sommers. A good contact of Peter, Tini van der Doelen, had just had a litter of Malinois' on Friday with only two pups. Tini was willing to put our pups with his. This female accepted our pups and started feeding them.
We would like to thank everyone who spontaneously offered to help during this time. Some people even offered to take one or two pups to join with their litters of 8-10, and someone even offered a female who had just been whelped off her own six week old puppies. Really amazing.

Tess was a female we bought at the age of two years because of her dominant nature and extreme drives. In combination with the right stud this female has proven to bring excellent working dogs with extreme power and drive.
