This is a very short version but I hope You still find it interesting...
We live in Nynäshamn, in Sweden (near Stockholm). When we started our pwd-journey 2005 the children in the family was young and the family consisted of mom Helena, dad Peter and the children Sofia and Fredrik. Sofia and Fredrik does no longer live at home but Sofia spends much of the day at Helenas and Peters house because Sofia is working with Helena as dog physiotherapists (and Sofia is equally committed to the breeding as Helena is). Sofia lives near her parents with her boyfriend Michael and their dogs.
We just love Portuguese Waterdogs. We never thought it would be possible for us to have a dog because Peter is allergic to animals. You can imagine our happiness that it is going so well having 6 dogs at most, Peter doesn´t have any problem at all with his allergy.
Our first pwd, Selma was born in March 2005 (Selma left us with great sorrow in September 2017) and Alice was born in September 2005 (Alice left us with great sorrow in April 2018). Selma and Alice was halfsisters.
Selma didn't want to have puppies and therefore she was the one who namned the kennel insted. She truly was an amazing girl!
Alice wanted to have puppies so her and our first litter was born 22 of March 2008. It was very exciting to follow the puppies. In the beginning they were so helpless but only 8 weeks later they were ready to move from us - it is just fantastic, don´t you think?!?
Maya was the first puppy to be born - she was so cute and we fell in love with her at once - of course she had to stay with us! After the first litter we was stuck, we loved beeing breeders and trough the years many pups has been born in our house.
Our puppies grows up in our home. When they are born they live in, what we call the "whelping-room". When they are about 2 weeks old they moves to a room we call the "puppie-room", which is a larger room. Both rooms are located in our house and the puppies lives with us.
