The Lumo & Piksu puppy trio are now a bit over two weeks old and they have they eyes all open.
Just a little brag, because I am really proud of my boy Merlin (Entre Nous Cumin des Prés). We were at a group show for herding breeds and two other groups and I was totally amazed when the group judge mrs Päivi Eerola placed us first! Then the BIS judge Harto Stockmari placed us second in the BIS ring. What a nice day we had! :D
World Dog Show aka WDS was held in Helsinki in August. We had a nice group of friends together and had a quite lovely day together. Here are the results with some pictures.

The most heart warming experience was to be able to show a breeders class of five dogs. There were three breeders classes in the ring and ours was BOB. I am so, so happy and thankful for all my dog owners who made this possible! The pictures @Heli Heikkinen and @Claudia Ottka.
In a loving memory of our Pii who always had a full drive in her life. Now she will have enough stones to carry, holes to dig and toys to rip.

The puppies of Fajou (Fajou de Loubajac) and Vissa (Entre Nous Camomille Bleue) were born on 5th February. All went fine although one puppy was stuck and we drove to the veterinary clinic after it seemed impossible to help the puppy out. Haha, guess what? While we entered the clinic and stepped inside, the puppy was born. He was lively and well, so we just drove happily back home. This is very classical, but still unbelievable!
So, there are three boys and two girls, and all including the mom are doing great. The puppies are extremely lively and are already climbing on their mom and moving in the litter box. I guess I forgot to mention that all five of them are black. So, it is another "win" in the gene lottery. Acording statistics there should have been a 25 % chance for fawn puppies and a 50% chance for merle and since Fajou is a known brindle carrier, also brindle was possible. This just shows once again, that coinsidence is what matters the most!
The girls of this litter are already spoken for, but two of the boys are looking for loving, caring and active families.
It has been a typical November, dark and rainy, but two young visitors managed to brighten up my days. The first one was Kassu, Entre Nous Remus, a handsome JRT boy from my latest litter. The other one was lovely Chére, Entre Nous Ne-M'Oubliez-Pas from my latest Pyrshep litter. Not only are they nice to look at, but they both have a wonderful character
Today we took the puppies to have some fun, first on the field and then on the beach. Boy did they have fun!
It is always lovely to hear nice news and there have been many lately. Today Ronja, Entre Nous Herbe de Feu qualified as Finnish champion in conformation. Many congratulations to her owner Maria!
Tarja Mäkelin has been doing great work in both agility and obedience with both of her JRT girls, Sylvi (Entre Nous Eirene) and Saaga (Entre Nous Juturna). Sylvi qualified for the highest ie. mini 3 class in agility and also earned a title TK2 in obedience open class. This means that in the future Sylvi competes in obedience winner class. Also Saaga started her competing career in obedience and earned an excellent result for starters. Huge congrats, Tarja!
Also Pyr Shep Vissa (Entre Nous Camomille Bleue) raised to the third class in agility and open class in obedience. Congratulations Kati! Vissa is probably going to have a break in her hobbies as she will be mated from her next season that is about to start any day now.
Dixie Lampers from USA sent some lovely pictures of Fari, Entre Nous Miroir de Vénus, that is starting her agility career. She is fast and furious, so probably we will hear more of this pair!
