Merry Christmas!

Most puppies from Y-litter has moved to their new homes! Good luck with new owners! Pikku Myy will stay at home and I am sure she will keep me busy.

During the last months we have been in some shows with good results. In Seinäjoki Luca (Lumivyöryn Ureshii) was 2nd best male with CAC and Res-CACIB and Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition) 3nd best male. Then we travelled to Tartu, Estonia, with Nelli (Lumivyöryn Raifutaimu Ravu), Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) and Inkkari (Lumivyöryn Pikku Hiawatha). On Saturday Nelli was BOB with CACIB and Inkkari 2nd best male with Res-CACIB. Bella was 2nd best female and BOB-veteran on both days. On Sunday Nelli was again best female with CACIB and Inkkari best male with CACIB. Inkkari BOB and Nelli BOS. In Helsinki Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition) was 4th best male.

We have also new puppies. Raisu (Lumivyöryn Reijin Ranman) got 5 puppies and a week later Sindi (Lumivyöryn Tosi Ihana) got 6 puppies.

Puppies were born almost 5 weeks ago and now they are already quite big little dogs. We got 3 males and one small female this time. Helmi has been really great mother. Puppies has been really brave little ones when they have seen many new things lately. Their first time in car went also really well.

At the end of September we visited in Eckerö for a show. Good critics for the dogs but nothing else to mention for results. But the trip was really nice and I had so great company with me :). We also took many new photos of dogs.

Here couple new photos:

We had busy August with many shows and now it is time to relax and wait for puppies. But we had really great results.

First we travelled to Lithuania for 2 shows. We had 3 person and 7 dogs in my car so it was quite full. We had 2 shows in Druskininkai. All my dogs were quite naked but that's summer time. Inkkari (Lumivyöryn Pikku Hiawatha) got 2 res-cacibs, so did Roosa (Lumivyöryn Que Vida). But the female who got both cacibs became International Champion on first day so we can make an application for changing Roosa's other res-cacib to cacib. Luna (Houndbrae Anastasia) got CAC on both days and Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) was BOB-veteran and became Lithuanian Veteran Champion. Viltsu (Lumivyöryn Villiruusu) was only once in the ring and she was BOB-junior and got junior-CAC. When the second show was over we started our travel to Pärnu, Estonia.

On Sunday we had a show in Pärnu. Bella was BOB-veteran and BOS. Viltsu BOB-junior and 2nd best female. Luna got CAC and CACIB and was 3rd best female. Viltsu became Estonian and Lithuanian Junior Champion :) Luna's brother Houndbrae Akush was BOB

Next weekend we were 2 shows in Finland. On Saturday I drove to Helsinki with Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite), Tilda (Lumivyöryn Päivänsäde) and Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition). First Juki was best male with his first Finnish CAC. Then Tilda was 2nd best female with CAC and became Finnish Champion. Bella was best female and BOB-veteran. Finally Juki was BOB and Bella BOS.

On next day I travelled to Raisio with the same dogs. Nina (kennel Donorei) took also Foksi (Baltik Lain Arctic Fox) to the show place. This was Foksi's first show. He got excellent and won his class. That was great result without any ringtraining... Juki did well again and was best male with second Finnish CAC. Tilda got only excellent and Bella was BOB-veteran and 4th best female. Juki ended up to be best of breed again.

Tilda (Lumivyöryn Päivänsäde) was 3rd best female, Raisu (Lumivyöryn Reijin Ranman) excellent 3rd and Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) BOS-veteran and best female. Juki was BOB and Bella BOS.

On Sunday in Heinola Juki was best male again but this time female was better and Juki was BOS. Tilda was 2nd best female. This time Bella was 3rd best veteran female. Raisu was only taking part to junior handler competition.

Last weekend of August we had a show in Tervakoski on Saturday and Japanese Spitzes Specialty Show in Kangasala on Sunday. In Tervakoski Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition) was 2nd best male and Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) 2nd best female and BOB-veteran. Meli (Lumivyöryn Xtra Xpressive) was just with us for getting used to show places for the next day. She had her first show on the next day.

In Kangasala we had 4 dogs in the ring. Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition) was 3rd in champion class. Meli (Lumivyöryn Xtra Xpressive) 4th in junior class. Raisu (Lumivyöryn Reijin Ranman) was totally naked and she got excellent but it was obvious that nothing else because there were totally 14 champion females. Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) showed herself so well and she won veteran females. She was also 2nd best female and BOB-veteran. That was so great because she is already 13 years old and there were many beautiful veterans, some of them 5 years younger.

On 30th August we had a special day. Vilma had her 17th birthday!

We took some of our dogs to health tests on 11rd September. First time we took official heart listenings to them and now Finnish Kennelclub has changed the rules about knee examinations so we decided to take new knee results for the dogs after they are 3 years old. In future I hope to get heart examination and knee examination after 3 years to all of my dogs but this is quite long project because there are so many dogs and they are living in different places here in Finland. But now the first ones has these results and more will come. Here all the dogs with their results who were checked this time:

Baltik Lain Arctic Fox, heart ok, eyes ok
Crystalclear Moondancer, heart ok, knees 0/0, eyes ok
Lumivyöryn Hakaku Hansamu, heart ok, eyes ok
Lumivyöryn Reijin Ranman, heart ok, knees 0/0
Lumivyöryn Que Vida, heart ok, knees 0/0
Lumivyöryn Tosi Ihana, heart ok
Pihlajaniemen Akino Kusano, heart ok, eyes
Pähkinän Elevee Par Moi, heart ok, as 17 years old

After 2 months off from showrings it was time to travel to Oulu. Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) was BOS and BOS-veteran. Haiku (Pihlajaniemen Akino Kusano) was on his first show and he got excellent and so did Rico (Lumivyöryn Tosi Inkkari) and Nelli (Lumivyöryn Raifutaimu Ravu) also. Puppy Dina (Lumivyöryn Xtraordinary Xena) was on her first show and BOB-puppy.

Next show was on last weekend in Mikkeli. This time I had Hoppu (Lumivyöryn Lenda Novo), Tilda (Lumivyöryn Päivänsäde) and Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) with me. Hoppu had lost his coat complitely but still he got excellent. Tilda was 4th best female and Bella BOB-veteran. After that show we have shows on every coming weekend during August.

Finally we have puppy plans also, hopefully Helmi (Beauty) will get puppies in September.

Last weekend we had eye-check for 4 JS. All of them, Lumivyöryn Tosi Ihana, Lumivyöryn Raifutaimu Ravu, Houndbrae Anastasia and Beauty had everything ok with their eyes :)

A week before we had some shows in Finland. On Saturday we were in Hamina. Luca (Lumivyöryn Ureshii) was 4th best male with RES-CAC.

Our holiday went really quickly. We drove about 9000 kilometers, saw many beautiful countries and enjoyed sunny weather with 25-30 degrees. We had also some dog shows with really great results. Our first show was in Satu Mare, Romania. Hoppu (Lumivyöryn Lenda Novo), Rico (Lumivyöryn Tosi Inkkari) and Raisu (Lumivyöryn Reijin Ranman) became Romanian Champions ja Luca (Lumivyöryn Ureshii) became Romanian Junior Champion.

With older dogs first it was Rico's and Sindi's turn and they both got CACIB and CAC on both days and Rico was BOB. The last two days Luca and Raisu got CACIB and CAC on both days and Luca was BOB. With these results Raisu became International Champion. After all the great results it was time to start our travel back home.

On Easter Monday we had a show in Lappeenranta. We had 3 JS with us: Luca (Lumivyöryn Ureshii), Sindi (Lumivyöryn Tosi Ihana) and Raisu (Lumivyöryn Reijin Ranman) and the results were excellent. Luca was BOB and Raisu BOS. They both got CAC. Sindi got very good and won her class.

On last week we checked some knees, hips and elbows. Foksi (Baltik Lain Arctik Fox), Rico (Lumivyöryn Tosi Inkkari) and Sindi (Lumivyöryn Tosi Ihana) have officially healthy knees. Results of hips and elbows will come later from Finnish Kennelclub.

Last weekend we were again abroad. I travelled with Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition), Rico (Lumivyöryn Tosi Inkkari), Roosa (Lumivyöryn Que Vida)and Kirppu (Lumivyöryn Ureshisou) to Minsk, Belarus, for 2 shows. We got nice results. Juki was BOB on both days and got 2 CACIB and CAC and became Belarus Champion. Roosa also became Belarus Champion and got CACIB. Both juniors became Junior Champions and Rico was BOB-junior on both days.

X-litter has been our joy but now the first puppies has moved to their new homes. Good luck with the future!

On January we had health checks with Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition), Luca (Lumivyöryn Ureshii), Kirppu (Lumivyöryn Ureshisou), Yuki (Lumivyöryn Utsukushii) and Iines (Donorei Naksuna) They all had excellent hips and elbows. Only not good result was Yuki's knees which were 1/2, others had healthy knees.

Our show year started in Tartu, Estonia on 14th and 15th January. Juki (Lumivyöryn Special Edition) had last time before 18 months to get junior-CAC for Junior Champion. He was BOB on both days so he became Estonian Junior Champion :) Girls didn't have enough coat for Saturday and got only very good. On Sunday they got excellent and Raisu (Lumivyöryn Reijin Ranman) was BOS with CAC and Sindi (Lumivyöryn Tosi Ihana) BOS-junior with Junior-CAC and 2nd best female.

Next weekend we had show in Kokkola. It was really nice to see Pyry (Lumivyöryn Tosi Vikkelä) and his family. Thank You really much! The judge wanted more body to boys so Pyry and Hoppu (Lumivyöryn Lenda Novo) got only good. Our girls were better and Viltsu (Lumivyöryn Villiruusu) was on her first show having fun and got excellent and 3rd in junior class. Helmi (Beauty) won open class, 2nd best female, got CAC and became Finnish Champion.

Last weekend we had a show in Keuruu. Pyry (Lumivyöryn Tosi Vikkelä) got nice critics but he was a bit too big for the judge and he got very good.Naskali (Donorei Naskali) and Luca (Lumivyöryn Ureshii) got excellent on junior males and both boys got also CQ. Naskali was 1st and Luca 2nd. Naskali ended up to be best male with his first CAC. Luca was 4th best male with RES-CAC. This was first official show for both boys. First girl of mine was Viltsu (Lumivyöryn Villiruusu). She had learned more circus tricks and she made the judge and many other people to laugh. Well, she had really fun. Only one who wasn't so happy with her performance was me but that isn't a big problem. The judge liked her really much and she was 1st in junior class with very good. She need to grow up a bit before big wins - maybe learn to behave like an adult also ;) Bella (Lumivyöryn Afrodite) showed herself as happy as usual and she was 2nd best veteran female and 4th best female. I am really proud that she is still in such a good condition as she is 12 and half years old. And she really enjoys her time in the ring :)

Even if this sounds much like shows we have had much totally different fun with the dogs. On beautifull winter day I had my camera outside with me and here some photos:
