Dutch, French and International Champion
Dog of the Year 1997 – 1998

Umberto, 1996-2009, son of Unique du Sourire Doux (sister of Ulysse-Sharon and daughter of Samuel and Mercedes du Sourire Doux) and again Mattie v.d. Mestreechteneerkes.

Our Bert is the family clown.  When I am at the computer he sits on the back of the couch and taps my shoulder with his paw and he barks for attention.  He loves watching television, especially an animal program, but also the tune of the news is familiar to him.  Our Bert likes to show, but don’t leave him in the bench because he’ll protest all over the show.  Besides showing Bert likes to walk through the exhibition hall all day long where people pet him and where there are lots of things to eat and play with.  This is our Bert’s second hobby: food.  Bert is also very fond of the sea but contrary to our Babe, Bert loves the water just to put his paws in the water.  As soon as he doesn’t feel any sand under his paws, he starts to feel uncomfortable.  He loves being on the mainland.  Our Bert is now a worthy veteran.
