We are Martijn and Joyce van Oudheusden, and we live with
Dolce, Mia and Nero in Velden. That is a small village in the south of Holland.
We have our own company, in natural dogfood and Joyce is also a dog masseuse.
You can find more about it at HondenCompleet.
In October 2005 our first Ridgeback “Jambo” was born.
Jambo became a big Ridgeback, with a character as friendly as his size.
Jambo loved canicross and coursing.
At March 25th 2015 we had to say goodbye to our Bear, after a year extra time.
Our second ridgeback “Jinaki” joined our live in March 2007.
Jinaki was a real queen, but with a strong character.
But the sweetest for the boys and us.
Unfortunatly Jinaki’s live was way to short.
Just before she turned 5 years old, she had to leave us forever.
Jinaki was diagnosed with bonecancer in her back.
“Rusty” came really unexpected in our lives.
As an 11 months old, livernose male, he was looking for a new home in the beginning of 2009.
When we saw his first picture, he walked right into our hearts and did not leave anymore.
Rusty became not only my best buddy, but also the most important collegue in my company.
When I had to teach future dogmasseuse he always joined me.
Way to young, and very unexpected Rusty died in september 2016.
After the loss of Jinaki we missed a third ridgeback and also a girl in the house.
In the summer of 2012 “Dolce” came to bring the joy back in the house.
And she really did.
Dolce got a very big will to work with us. Canicross, Bikejoring, Coursing, Obdience, Agility.
She likes it all.
In 2015 Dolce became the foundation bitch of our kennel.
“Mia” is Dolce’s daughter.
Mia was born in our ABBA litter, and she was the one to stay with us.
At this moment (2017), Mia is grown-up to a sweet you enthusiastic girl.
She look a lot like her mother Dolce, but got her own Wonderfull character.
She now is the big sis of little Nero, and sometimes she learns him how to behave,
but a lot, they are just partners in crime 🙂
“Nero” is the boy we kept from Dolce’s second litter.
It was totally not planned to keep a puppy from this litter.
But the moment he was born, I was in love with him.
And after 4 weeks we decided, there was no possibility to let hem go.
And we never regret a moment, that he stayed.
He is the sweet stable men in the house.
The little clown we could use so much.
