Multi Int Ch/ Multi European Best in Show winner Ashlaren Caipiroska (Oska)

Oska's Portrait


Oska (Multi European Ch/Aust Ch Ashlaren Caipiroska) is a very special boy at Ashlaren, not only as a multi Best in Show winner in Europe and sire of outstanding puppies in Australia and Europe as well as being the Sire of the 2010 American Weimaraner National Winner's Bitch, but he is also a much loved family member whose calm, unassuming nature and handsome looks are much loved and admired.

To celebrate this wonderful dog and what he has done for Weimaraners in Australia and overseas, I asked talented pencil artist Victoria Cooper  of Sydney (ex England) to draw Oska's lovely portrait to cherish his memory forever.

Victoria can be contacted on +61 2 9785 6996 if you also wish to have a stunning pencil portrait done of your dog,

Just phone Victoria and send her a  photograph of your pet!

 I highly recommend this very talented artist as she has truly captured our Oska's beautiful head and expression.

Thank you Victoria!

Oska is only available at stud to quality Weimaraner bitches, approved by Ashlaren.

Ivette at WCA National 2010 Winners Bitch.jpg

Ivette was bred by Paulina Walkowska of Imperium Star Weimaraners in Poland.

 When the litter was only about 8 weeks old, we visited Paulina in Poland to see Oska's first litter in Europe.

Ivette was my pick from this large litter of 10 babies and she has proven to be an outstanding bitch, winning Reserve BEST IN SHOW in Europe before winning Best Bitch (non American Champion bitch) at the 2010 WCA National (at Gettysburg, USA) judged by highly regarded breeder/judge - Judy Colan - of the famous Colsidex Weimaraners in America.

Congratulations Paulina and handler Edwin Lenearts of Greyclassics Weimaraners in Belgium. Our best wishes go to you for Ivette's successful campaign in Canada and USA.
