Finland, part 2.

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.

During the past winter months the youngest girl that Heli owns from me, Keesi, became Champion of Latvia!
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 😉

By date 9.5.16,her health status is: Eyes clear (05/2015), Knees 0/0, Myotonia congenita: N/N (non-carrier).

As Mentioned before Keesi is the youngest of the girls that Heli owns from me; and I would like to share some photos of the progeny of another of her girls CH Liberté de Trufas Negras (sister of WW’15).

One of Heli’s youngest boys currently showing:  JCH Xtravaschnauza Nextraordinary and one of my favorite boys 🙂 I was lucky to see him as 8 weeks old puppy and I could follow his progress on photos, I’m looking forward to see him again someday.

Finland, news part 1

It’s about to be two years since my last litter was born at home; however, despite my breeding-break, it doesn’t mean the work has stopped. I carefully placed my dogs with caring people who are helping to take along the breeding program.

Last March, in Finland, was born at kennel Backout’s a litter that I had in mind for some years now.
The sire of this litter is CH. Rusty Assorti’c Irbis, my well known Russian buy, and the dam is Keystone Blue Gurl, a sweet girl who was born in South Africa, result of a cooperation work with Francois Spangenberg, Keystone Kennel. She is after CH Brenfor Ring O Fire, and one of my best producer bitches, JrCH One Red Rose de Trufas Negras.

I want to wish best luck to Arja Niemijärvi, who bred this puppies, and the new owners. I look forward to see them growing!

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!
