Antonio en Dickie
My first spanish Waterdog was Antonio. together with his
brother Dickie (dennis) they were my first meeting with the Perro de Agua
In 1998-1999 I have met my two first perros. Dickie as a puppy of 8 weeks old.
Antonio, his brother a few weeks later at his breeder.
I met Dickie and Antonio when they were about eight weeks old. Together,
they were a couple that can make you laugh and cry both.
To my great disappointment, Antonio has died in November 2007. Dickie died in April 2011. I miss them very much.
Antonio was a great example for the breed 'Spanish Waterdog', both in exterior, his great character as in his working abilities.
After Antonio died, Bemilena came to me. togewther with Dickie, who were good comapny together. I knew Bemilena from her puppy time. We have imported her from Spain in 1999.
After Dickie passed away, i went to Spain and gathered Dito. Dito and Bemilena were together at my place for 2,5 years. Bemilena became ill in November 2013 and passed away short after.
Dickie and Toni are born on 27th of November 1998 at the Kaayk family in Nieuwe Pekela (The Netherlands). On the newspaper item this 'special' moment for the Spanish Waterdog in the Netherlands was made history.
Six puppies for rasta dogs, Newspaper of the north, 1998 (translated from the Dutch newspaper item)
It is almost impossible to see what's the front of these dogs, with all that hair of motherdog Nela and father dog Cole. Their six puppies were born last week. Mrs Kaaijk from Boven Pekela, the Netherlands, is the proud owner of these specially broomed dog family. their brooming shows similarity with the special hair broom of Ruud Gullit. These very young puppies are belonging to the breed ' Perro de Agua Español' or Spanish Waterdog. According to mrs Kaayk, this breed is very rare in the Netherlands. This on the contrary to Spain, where these dogs are common seen. he dogs are intelligent and eager to learn. In Spain, the waterdogs are feared by drugs smugglers because at the Spanish police, these dogs have got a fine reputation as drug dogs.

Antonio and Dickie are also very fond of making trips in the canoe.
Nice trips over the water and sometimes a dive in the water to cool down.
