Maruska is, together with her four siblings, the result
of true love and a life long love affair between our Ubbe and Gathe.
Their mating was planed, but we cannot say the same about the 3 kittens our cat Nefi had 3 weeks earlier. It was our first
litter of kittens, and big were our surprise, when our first born puppy had the markings of a cat on her left side. With eyes,
ears and even a tail. We had a good laugh, and wondered if Gathe had spent to much time with Nefi's kittens?!
Maruska 4 and 6 weeks old.
Well as you can see Maruska's cat lost the tail sometime between the age of 4 and 6 weeks old.
So now we call it Maruska's tail-less cat.
Maruska is a cute and happy little girl, who enjoys very much to be near people and playing with
the older Bassets of our kennel. She is a very funny and self-confident bitch, that we love very much.
Here you see Maruska (to the right) with her mother Gathe (to the left)
Maruska is very active, and
as the rest of our Basset-gang, she also enjoys obedience training.
Especialy when we do agility, as you see here:
The photo's were taken first time she tried agility, on a hot summer day in 2004.
