I’m making some efforts to track old news from the last few months. Today I have the second part of Finland ready, the report of the day refers to news from kennel Xtravaschnauza.

CH Tu Dirás de Trufas Negras, KEESI, was born the 4th of July 2014, one of my last whelped litters, Zissis ex Charlie (my last two litters were born on that same day).

According to judge Erwin Deutscher: Very nice expression. Correct head, ears and tail. Harsh coat. Very nice pepper&salt. Correct front and size. Strong chest. Excellent angulations, movements and temperament.

The previous is an old photo when she was 12 months old… We are waiting to have photos when she is not on a sofa 😉

New Photo of Irbis at 7 years

This week I received a lovely new photo of ‘Posh’ at 7 years old.
GCH Russkiy Assorti’c Irbis is temporarily living in Finland with Arja Niemijärvi, kennel Backout’s. During the time he stayed with Arja (1 year) he was shown in Estonia and became Estonian Champion; he also sired 3 litters, latest born is a PS litter from our co-owned with girl Keystone’s Blue Gurl, born in South Africa after CH Brenfor Ring’O’Fire and JCH One Red Rose de Trufas Negras. And prior he sired 2 white bitches from Arja, on 20 Aug 5m+2f from Backout’s Kristall and 11 Nov 4m+1f Backout’s Snowy Surprise. I really hope that he will do a positive input to this color.

Posh’s eyes were tested recently and everything is OK! 😀 That is also a great new!
