When a Good Dog proves to be like Good Wine.

It is always said that good quality things last long, and some even get better with time, like good wine… I find it appropriated with good quality dogs too.

So, today, I am very happy to share this photos that I received few days ago. This is RICO, soon to be a ‘veteran’ (9 yrs old); he was born in October 2007.

Danish & Swedish Champion, Copenhagen Winner’12 – LET IT BE de Trufas Negras

Rico, is not only a nice dog in the outside, he has also passed the Swedish mentality test including shooting.
He’s has also proved himself to be a superb stud dog in Sweden and, I am extremely pleased to see winners dogs today carrying Rico’s name in their pedigree. He is father of 7 Champions, and he also won together with his progeny several Best in Show and BIS placements along all these years!

I have too many favorite photos of this dog, so I won’t post them all now. I also have some great memories of seeing him winning when I had the luck to be in the ring side. He is absolutely amazing to look at, and of course I say this with breeders eyes, but a very lucky one who share this view with the judges too.

I selected few Rico’s  photos to show his growing evolution. To me, he always looked awesome, but increasingly awesome with the age… and my idea did’t change a bit almost 9 years later.

Rico is blessed with an amazing owner, and I’m very, very happy for that, even more than all his winnings and beauty altogether! Thank you so much Yvonne!!

Rico at 5 years old, winning BOB both days becoming Danish Champion and Copenhagen Winner’12

Rico is owned by Yvonne Broberg, kennel New Era, Sweden.

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!
