Alba from the town of roses, now called Bela, was whelped together with nine brothers and sisters in a Slovene kennel from Šempeter pri Gorici on 4th of March 2014. Her mother Elisha Časova is today already old, but still vital »dog lady« in her 12th year. Bela's granny was also a vital dog, bread in Slovenia and she lived long. The granny was, from her father’s side of the family, an offspring from Austrian hovawart family from »von Schirninghof kennel. The dogs from this kennel are long living, at least 13 and some up to 15 years. This was also the age of Bela's granny.
Bela's father is an imposing and sound hovawart originating from very successful Austrian kennel »vom Tullnerbach«. His sister stayed in the kennel and continued the breeding tradition of Ms Rosemarie Teubl from Vienna. Together with her owner she successfully passed an exam for rescuing dog.
Four of Bela's nine brothers and sisters, including Bela, received breeding licences and three are active. Bela's sister Astra is staying in the roses town kennel owned by Tina Gabrijelčič, Bala's brother Ami has a lot of offspring in Italy.
There is still an abundance of Bela's easiness, vivaciousness and curiosity, despite hers six years; she still salutes, with her wagging tail, everybody who comes along our home. With the same joy she announces the presence of wild animals and protects our home with thunderously bark. She shares our home yard with cat Pika. Theirs synergy lasts until Pika gets tired of Bela's loving nibbling and washing.
Bela's curiosity during the walks is immensely. She enquiringly approaches to everything. She likes to run and walking or just being in nature is for both of us priceless. If the challenge and the reward are tempting enough, she can even surmount her reluctance against her wet fur and enters in cold and fast running waters of our Soča River valley.
Because we are more oriented towards work with people and our contribution to society and family, we didn't attend so many exhibitions. But we don't minimize their meaning. On all that we have participated Bela has surprised me with her performance which was always better than at home.
