After 4 long years of waiting and dissapointment Minamoto no Yorimitsu proudly presents their first confirmed litter!!!

We are over the moon and can not believe it is finally happening after all the sadness we had the last few weeks after losing Raiko.

We expect the puppies to be born on 06-11-2017 

future pedigree of the puppies


We want to thank everyone that supported us and showed interest every single time, but especially want to say thanks to Erika Mason, Diana Ros, Hans Vis, Nico Reimerink, Sabine Kurock-Sprenger and Christiane Lorra

Our hearts are broken as we let you know
that our beloved male Raiko died on the 9th of september
We miss him terribly but
treasure the time we had with him in our lives over the past 10 years.
It seems like just yesterday that he was just a little puppy
who grew up to be king of the neighbourhood.
He will never be forgotten and will be loved forever.

05-01-2017 dek Click on the photo to see the future pedigree We want to thank Bart de Boeck of Fukurokuju kennel for letting us use Ryuichi. The ultrasound is planned on the 27th of march, so keep checking this website for more news. Sadly Akemi showed no puppies on the ultrasound. We will try again next heat.


Last weekend, it was time for Akemi’s first show, The Amsterdam Holland cup and the Amsterdam Winner show,
Akemi did great on both days and required the necessary points for breeding.
This means there is nothing keeping us from breeding her, next heat,

02-10-2016 We are currently waiting for the arrival of Akemi’s pedigree. When this arrives we will start doing all the required tests so she can be mated next heat.

30-09-2016 Sadly we have to announce the retirement of G’Kumiko Deiji de L’Empire des Samourais (aka Miki). Due to her pyometra last year, we do not feel we can take this risk again and we rather enjoy having our precious girl with us.
