We, Janny and Wim de Groot, are great dog lovers. During a visit to a dog show in 1982 we really learnt about the Barsoi for the first time. I was totally crazy about them. Janny in fact likes every dog.
The Barsois are especially my passion. I looked for descriptions, articles and other documentation about the Barsoi. I started reading, asked here and there for more information. And finally the ´´big´´ moment came. I bought my first Barsoi; Janinka von Kimcha, a bitch. In 1983 I became a member of the Nederlandse Barsoi Cub. During a visit to a kennel which had a litter, I bought 3 pups at the same time. Proydah, Djerba and Shira. Oh, it was so beautiful to see these three grow up. And even that wasn´t enough because with Djerba I wanted to breed a litter myself.
In 1986 my kennel name Cymabresjeva was registered. Perhaps Cymabresjeva seems a strange name, but there is a story behind it. We have three daughters, CYnthia , MAriska and BREnda and we put "sjeva" at the end of it. In 1986 our first litter was born with Cymabresjeva Ayac and Cymabresjeva Ashka.
At the end of the 80´s we met the French Barsoikennel Az Aftab Faizabad of Mr. Vannier and Mr. Dry. This resulted in a very good collaboration with best known Barsois:as Hatinka Az Aftab Faizabad, Javidov Az Aftab Faizabad, Oriana Az Aftab Faizabad and th S-Litter of which most of the Barsois became champions: Sybelle, Sonia, Slavina and Sabine Az Aftab Faizabad.
Every now and then we breed a litter. Before that we calculate very carefully which combinations of parents are most suitable for this goal. All pups out of a litter have a name begining by the same letter. Therefore the choices of names follow in alphabetical order. All pups born in our kennel have Cymabresjeva in front of their name.
