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!

Visiting Messi

I started April traveling to Stockholm. I owed this city a visit since my last time there in 2011 when I brought Diego (INT CH Dire Straits de Trufas Negras) to Yvonne. At that time Stockholm was white and cold, but attractive and with personality.
I needed to find a new excuse to visit the city when it doesn’t look frozen and death, so I accepted Maria Landergård’s invitation to visit her puppies after Messi (WW’15 INT CH  Little Star de Trufas Negras) in the spring. Last time we met was last year in Milano when Messi won World Winner title and BOS.

I definitively had an awesome time in Stockholm while walking around on my own and discovering that the sun can also shine in this town, sometimes… however some of the greatest time I had was while meeting dogs and breeders.
Of course I was stunned by seeing Messi and having the chance to steal him every night so he would be my night companion; Messi is so easy going he just behaved as he’d knew me forever, LOL, indeed, he’s born in my hands, but it was like he never left me. I know he is like that with everyone, so I do not feel ‘that special’ 🙂
During the week Maria organized two evening where friend breeder came to see the puppies and we shared a nice table, with great food and candle lights, funny anecdotes and of course seeing the most important “The Puppies” – They were the stars of the evening, and they were all more or less well behaved on the table while I tried to stack them so the rest of the guest could have a look.
The photos shared here were taken by Marthe Norström and Marie Bäckström (who has a new born litter after Messi) – They are 6 weeks old and their mother is a lovely female bred by Maria, CH Schnauzi-Hero’s Anthonia of Victory.


Thank you Maria for an amazing time, looking forward to meeting you again soon!
