Mrs Snels of the 'Venne-Dorp' Chows has died
Jul 16th, 2010 at 11:35pm
 
On July 14 Mrs An Snels-van Amelsvoort (74) has died.

The well known Dutch kennel 'van het Venne-Dorp' was in her name, she bred the Chows together with her husband Cees, who is a Chow and Shar Pei judge as well.

Mrs Snels suffered from severe rheuma during the last years.

Christina's Poika was bred by her.

It's so sad when the old-time breeders pass away. In the 1970s Josja van het Venne-Dorp was imported into Sweden and he is in the pedigree of many dogs of today, including some of mine. He was the the sire of the very first chow litter in Sweden where the whole litter was HD clear! That litter was born in 1975 at Haitungs kennel.

Thank you for posting, Janneke. How very sad to hear …

It was a particular joy to see the special portrait on the Venne-Dorp kennel which you published in the Dutch Club magazine earlier this year, reviewing their kennel history and achievements. What a contribution they have made to the breed!

And of course, I have my very own personal memories of both Mr. and Mrs. Snels who treated me very kindly when I went to pick up Poika there in January 1995 …

I'm very sorry to hear this. I hope she's reunited with all of her chows who've gone before her.
