Jaja Jaap from the Barking Bunch
[Dutch Junior Champion 2013
& Junior Winner 2013]

call name: Jaap
born: 27 August 2012
DOD: May 14, 2021

DNA tests: DM Clear (
Exon 2 en Exon 1), VwD Clear

18 months of age

His call name is Jaap and he is a beautiful, big and sturdy Bernese! Very easily he won his junior classes and also his junior Winner 2013 certificate (by winning the largest dog show in the Netherlands, the Amsterdam Winner show). That is why he is a junior Dutch CH which of course will be mentioned on the pedigrees of his off spring. A well deserved "being beautiful" price. And above that Jaap has a very attractive, calm temperament and he loves to play and to be cuddled as you can see on the photo's depicted below

His Junior CH certificate and below his Junior Winner 2013 title

But let us first take a look at his parents.
General information on the  MOTHER of Jaap:
Theresa Toos from the Barking Bunch
(call name: Juul)

Juul is a beautiful, intelligent and lovely BMD. We are really happy with Juul as the mother of our Jaap!

De mother of Jaap is Juul ("Theresa Toos from the Barking Bunch") on the picture with her biggest fan MEES

Juul is a through, bred by, Barking Bunch dog. Her mother's name is "Tooske" (she lives with Leo en Ingrid) and  Tooske's official name is "Zomer Zusje from the Barking Bunch". Mother and daughter are look-a-likes. Take a look yourself:

(and Leo in the middle :-)

Again both but now you can see Juul in profile (left)

Juul's father, and so the grandfather of Jaap, is our very well know male Joep "Joviale Joep from the Barking Bunch". Joep has given sweet and healthy off spring. He himself died at an age of 10 years. A nice result  and we are happy with Joep in the blood lines of Jaap!

Okay, let's first look at a few pictures of Jaap before moving on to his father (Joe):


What a great couple: Lenna and Jaap

General information on the FATHER of Jaap: :
Ridgewater King Creole
(call name JOE)

Joe is an imported BMD and so very valuable for the breed in the Netherlands and especially for the Dutch BMD population. His parents and in fact almost all his ancestors are from the well known and successful BMD kennel Van 't Stokerybos in Belgium. Joe's mother's name is Emka van 't Stokerybos (HD and ED 0/0) and his father is named Fernandel van 't Stokerybos (HD and ED 0/0).

Dutch Junior CH 2010, import Ireland


Father and Mother of Joe: "Emka en Fernandel van 't Stokerybos"

And this is the father of Joe (Fernandel) with his owner Joe O'Callaghan in Ireland and Josť:

As all our dogs also Jaap is checked on his hips (HD check) and elbows (ED check). Jaap is excellent on hips (HD-A) and on his elbows (ED 0/0), so perfect! All his ancestors are free on hips (HD) and elbows (ED) as you can see on his pedigree below. A nice result! This all means that Jaap's off spring has a relative bigger chance on maturing in a healthy way, without problems on hips or elbows. Jaap is also DNA marked for DM and the good news is: he DM free (N/N); This means that no off spring of him will be as they say "in risk" ever for DM!


I want to cuddle.....

Jaap and his big friend Lenna
