In January 2012, we drove to the Baltic Coast in Poland for our lovely Siska to be mated to Sweedy. It was a very long journey but well worth the effort.
Aslan is very laid back and calm, fazed by nothing and so chilled and happy, very typical of both Siska and Sweedy. He has an amazing character, huge personality and a great sense of humour, he loves nothing better than to play about and act the clown, (even in the ring) The only Leonberger we have seen who can excel in dressage, but just for fun... He is too relaxed to show any dominance and is happy to let the girls take charge. Young Neo is his favourite of all our dogs, taking Aslan to Slovakia to bring home his new charge meant that they bonded very early on during that very long trek across Europe. Neo can take a bone from his mouth, he is such a lovely boy and we are very proud of him.
He is very friendly with both people and other dogs, we cannot fault his temperament at all. He also has great height, good mask and substance but not the best mover, he will always be beaten in the ring by the shorter dogs who have better movement, very much like Neo.
He is one gorgeous big fluff ball and we love him to bits
He qualified for Crufts 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016. It was a pleasure to see him stroll around the big ring having fun with his Dad. It was brought to our attention at LKA show 2017, that Aslan had a mouth fault, which had been caused through a bad infection following a squabble, so after this, we decided to end his show career.
In 2014, Aslan sired his first litter of 13 puppies. Sadly two didn't make it.
2019 he was used again and had four puppies.
In 2020 and 8 1/2 years old, Aslan is doing incredibly well, In great health and not at all like an older dog, he still has energy and great enthusiasm for everything.
2021 - Sadly we haven't had a puppy from Aslan but not all is lost; he has a lovely son who is now in breeding.
At 9 1/2 he is still in great health, just starting to show a little grey on his muzzle. He has always gone on holiday a few times a year and has enjoyed many super experiences. He has been very lucky since April, having been on holiday continuously as he enjoys his retirement along with his Dad. We dare not say the word HOLIDAY in the house as he gets over excited and will not settle until he's on the road 😂. He has been an incredible companion throughout his life and an absolute joy to live with. He is loving life without a doubt and long may it continue 🤞
2022- Reached 10 years in March. Aslan has had an abscess on his back for a while which won't heal. Another developed under his tail and at one point we were looking at amputation but the infection was controlled. He is losing muscle mass this year but is still very well in himself and absolutely loves his holidays. From April - August, he has been away quite a lot. We just hope and pray that we have more time to enjoy this fabulous boy who has enriched our lives so much in his 10 !/2 years.
on 1st December 2022, Aslan sadly passed away. he was 10y, 9m, the oldest of all our Leonbergers to date. The abscess under his tail was annoying him for the first time, he was hardly able to sit down comfortably. He also went off his legs quite suddenly, although he had arthritis for some time.
The most wonderful gentleman, loved by everyone, never put a paw wrong in his whole life, an honour to own. There will never be another Aslan. RIP our darling boy 🧡🌈
