Astra's parents are multi champion Carl-Oscar van de 's-Gravenschans and Kim van de BreŽ: Dutch, International Champion, European champion '95, German Winner '95 and best in show at our breed society show '96. She was born on 19th January '95. We had first choice from that litter and because we eagerly wanted a female dog, we chose a nice, cheerful puppy. Astra soon became a beautiful girl with a sweet character. She visited many dog shows with her father Carl-Oscar and like her father she won many certificates for championships, at home and abroad. During our journey to Finland in '97 (where we visited some of Oscar's descendants) she became Finnish champion and she passed the character test (obligatory in Finland) with the highest scores. Some highlights in her show career were winning the title 'Amsterdam-Winner' in '99 and becoming second best bitch at the show of our breed society in '96.


She also did very well at the dog course and she passed the obedience exams G & G 1 and VZH. Unfortunately, when she was training for the work certificate IPO 1, (she was almost ready for the exam) she fell ill. Then in August 2001 she suddenly died and we had to say goodbye to her forever. Astra became the mother of two litter pups: the M-litter "van Oscarli" (born 16-2-1998) and the L-litter "van Oscarli" (born 5-7-2000). Astra was a beautiful female with a very friendly character, that has given us a lot of affection, she has also been a very good and careful mother for her puppies. Astra lives on in her children: Myra, Lio, Linda and Lilian Ladouys. They already have offspring themselves.
