25.10.2015 No puppies for sale any more. Two girls "Armi" and "Livia" will stay at home for now.
Every now and then it's good to re-write the history, I think. Nothing has happened rignt now, except that I've had time to sit down :).

13.10.2015 This pretty girl is ready to move to her own home. For loving show home only.
Serene Someone Like You born 15.8.2015 (Ch Forman's Is Someone Home - Ch Serene Spring Of Life)

6.10.2015 A lovely little black boy "Samuel" is looking for an own home. He was born on August 3rd.

28.2.2015 Last puppy has left the building. The house feels quiet...

Last weekend I went to a show after some weeks break. I was showing Brando (Very Vigie I'm What I'm) and Jaffa (Serene Spring Of Life, a litter sister to Ringo). Elena Ruskovaara was judging in a group specialty show in Seinäjoki. Brando showed nicely, ending up 2nd best male with res-CC. Jaffa is not in full coat, but she surprised us all by taking best female with CC and therefore finishing her championship! The judge specially liked her balanced body and very nice movement. I'm happy! Now we can wait for the summer and continue our puppy plans for Jaffa...

26.1.2015 New pics of Jade's baby puppies. There is one boy available, preferable to show home.

My 2014 As this year is over, it's time to spend a few minutes to look back to 2014. For me, personally, it was a year of big changes, but in a positive way.

This year was also a year of litters. Never in my life I've had three litters in a same year. Gosh, that was tough. I'm getting too old for those sleepless nights making sure everything's OK with the little ones. But these were decisions that were made based on what's best for the bitches - they were in "now or never" -age. Jade's four babies are still in the litterbox. Jade's main career (in addition to being our couch potato) in blood tracking means I did not want puppies in her best tracking season. Anyway, I got some really nice puppies and some really, really nice homes for them. Hopefully they'll be seen in show rings already next year. The future and homes for Jade's puppies hasn't been decided yet. They're still a bit too young to be evaluated.

What happened in the show rings in 2014? During the first half of the year I made some longer trips. March - Riga, Latvia, LvW-14 - Triscuit's granddaughter Fabelsfee High Five Statesman was the star of the weekend with BOB, Group 3rd and BOS. Only a few weeks later back to Tallinn to Tallinn Winner show with Ecco (S. Suddenly It's Spring), Sunny (S. Sunny Side Of Heaven) and Brando (Very Vigie I'm What I'm). All three got theír titles!!! In May we headed to Moletai, Lithuania. That was a crazy trip to remember, also with good results from the shows. The best news was that Sunny got two more CACIBs and finished C.I.B. as well as BaltW-14 title. In June, I spent a weekend in Estonia with kids, grandma and a bit of dogshow as well. In July, with friends on the road again, this time to North Sweden. Got two new Swedish champions, Ringo and Sunny, Ringo also Group 2nd, and more CACIBs.

The long show trips are always quite sleepless, contain a lot of driving and grooming - and more grooming. Still, in good company, they are the spice of life. Looking forward to our trips in 2015 Niina, Laura, Päivi, Nora and Heli. Already planning...

Yes, I did go to some shows in Finland, too. New championship titles for Ringo and Ecco, both with BOBs and also a Group 2nd for Ringo. CC's with BOBs for Brando, Very Vigie I'm What I'm, who just turned one in the beginning of the year. CC's also for Jade's young daughters Salsa (S. In Your Dreams) and Peppi (S. Dreams R Free). BTW Peppi also did pretty well in Baltian shows, gaining two junior championship titles along the way. Our veteran boy, the black diamond, Adam (Ch KrisMyth Punch Adams) made a new comeback after his 10th birthday... he had a tremendous year. Four BIS-veteran placements including our main specialty BIS-1-veteran and Club Show BIS-1-veteran, World Veteran Winner, Helsinki Veteran Winner and Finnish Veteran Winner. Still as happy and joyful as in his younger years, he now retires after his beautiful show career.

There would be many photos but had to choose a few... from left Sunny, Unni's puppies and Adam.

See you in 2015!!! Thank you guys for being part of my life this year - I know it's not always easy...
