We are an internationally protected kennel, Chanson de Glace, which was registered in 2019 under the aegis of the FCI.
The idea for the name came from watching the worldwide blockbuster series, Game of Thrones, (Song of Fire and Ice), and since winter is our favorite time of year, the decision was clear. And thus a “surname” was created, which will be behind the names of our puppies, Chanson de Glace – Song of Ice.
My name is Marie Hamadová, I was born in Prague, but today I live together with my wonderful husband Ladislav in a picturesque village near Nitra called Čeľadice. Nitra has thus become my / our new home, where we have found refuge for our kennel and our life together. I have lived with dogs since I was a child, they have always been a part of my life since I was 6 years old, when we bought our first dog, a dachshund named Valentín. We learned a lot together.
Valentín won the hearts of all and convinced me that dogs fill my life with incredible happiness. However, he could not stay here with us forever, so one day he crossed the rainbow bridge. After him, we still had a lot of dogs that filled my heart with happiness, but once a special day came, specifically on June 16, 2018. At that time, we brought our love, a Dalmatian named Chanelle Vetřelec from Dobřichovice near Prague . It was love at first sight and at the same time a treasure that helped us in difficult times and will always be for us the first Dalmatian who stood at the beginning of everything.
As has been written many times, one Dalmatian is never enough for a long time. Also at our home Chanell lasted as an only child just for 15 months. Because on September 20, 2019, Hades Spotty Memories from Dunajská Streda joined us from a breeder, Alexandra Pódaová, who became my mentor and for whom I am extremely grateful. Hades is our baby, our little boy, whether he is 2,3,4,8 or 10 years old. It is exactly the type of dog that everyone longs for. He loves you unconditionally and cannot be further from you than the length of his outstretched paws.
Who thinks that charming dogs, like the Dalmatians you observe at shows, are just lying at home on the couch is really wrong. This energetic and adaptable breed is suitable for walks in the park or forest, as well as for training in obedience, agility, defense or canis therapy. But we will not lie, however, because they will definately prefer to sleep with you under the duvet.
What are our hobbies?
Together with Chanelle, we took part in many exhibitions both in Slovakia and abroad, where we both gained experience and met new friends, but also people with different views of the world. Hades only managed to see the exhibitions, but I firmly believe that when the situation in the world improves, we will get to the exhibitions again and spend beautiful moments with our friends again. As for other activities, we are actively involved in classical obedience training and we love long walks in nature.
From an early age, my dream has been to work with dogs and other animals. Therefore, after high school, I decided to study at the Slovak University of Agriculture, in field of special breeding. This allowed me to continue to develop my passion for animals and to progress in school. The most important thing I have learned over the years is to keep in mind that dogs are our reflection and always reflect our good and bad qualities. They are the only creature on the planet that will always love you unconditionally and endlessly. Therefore, always keep these words in mind when choosing a future furry partner.
