China’s half a year in a nutshell

We’ve received a big amount of pictures of China and also a letter written by China’s paw (maybe with a little help of her ownerlady). Wish you nice reading!

January

As usualy we hadn’t enjoyed snow in Prague a lot. But if there had been, both girls and China had had fun.

February

The little ownerlady Terezka celebrates her third b-day, so all the people who came to our home are there just because of cuddling me and playing with me. Or not? They didn’t let me to taste the cake, it was said not being for dogs or what…

I’d just found a perfect lair, even with a blanket inside prepared by my girls. I just don’t understand when they call it ‘their tent’.

March

I’m definitely not a dog, I’m a bear. Or not? Three months without grooming became evident. Also biting my hair while boring wasn’t much helpful.

After non-professional grooming hit

It was necessary to cut off some volume before bathing, just because of cleaning the coat to the deep and to be able to brush and comb whole hair from the bottom to the top. Almost noboty noticet that shame, it disappeard in few days. It really doesn’t look the best, but this was made after consulting it with my friend Tereza, who subsequently groomed a nice poodle from China again. She has my big thanks. China had bitten Tereza’s flowerpot instead of thanking her.

Nice again in the garden 😊

April

Resting, don’t disturb…

May

Trip for the Death pond near Jáchymov near Karlovy Vary. 

Give me the blueberry…

Moss pathway posing near Boží Dar.

June

I’m getting dry on sun (brushed and combed😉), it’s just too hot for drying by a dryer. Thanks to it I can enjoy a walk without breathing like being finishing a Marathon run. (And my joy is twice as big because I deslike drying)

Few pictures from grooming.

A non-show posture in brand new clip 😊.

China’s summer

We’ve got this nice post about China (ANNIVERSARY CHINA Ambershades) written by her ownerlady herself. The translation to English was made by breeder.

China’s Summer

The beginning of July we spent in Bechyně. China explored all the corners of an old cottage we staying in. While playing with a ball, she cleaned all the spider webs inside including the ones under the beds. She made a dog bed in the lawn in the yard where she comfortably spent the hot days. When Dad and children arrived, she switched laying in the flower bed and the lawn into soil digging together with children :-)…

13 months

Morning walks with aport training were replaced by siestas with a toy or without, because of really hot weather 🙂


In the second half of July we had a nice week in Starý Kolín with China. She had great days full of play together with three medium poodles from Teschiro and other five dwarves. The smaller poodle friends learned China how to bark because of everything (I’m glad that she’s calmed down back at home as the master dislike barking). China was all the time very helpful to water the lawn resulting in being even wetter than whole the garden :-).

And so the grooming of the fur took place.

In early August we left for a three days holiday to Krkonoše together with a lot of other children. The acommodation in one of the Meadow huts above Špindlerův Mlýn provided splendid sceneries with views to nature. China accompained us in i lot of nice walks. She was even allowed to use a chairlift uphill to Portášky chalet. The chairlift was for three person so I convinced the service we can travel together. Unlike me she enjoyed the getting out in an upper station and tried to jump back to the chair to have one more ride 😀

14 months

In mid-August we left for trip to Janské lázně and China together with us of course. This time she tried a cabin lift up to Černá hora. She jumped few times into moss and was pictured together with children on a huge stump. Together with us, China explored the Rocks of Adršpach including the hundreds of stairs on the way. She tried blueberries, fresh mountain spring water from local springs and some of them used also for bathing of herself :-).

Morning scooter trips
We had supposed different timing, but the nature does everything a different way, so China’s second heat arrived a little bit unexpected. It complicated a little bit our regular walks, because there were lots of dogs everywhere in the end of vacations. So, finally, we start to using a scooter for our walks, because…

At the beginning of May China tried out to run by a scooter that we borrowed from a scooter rental to test if we are able to travel this way together. Since then both me and China were looking forward to our rides together. Desgracially I had a bad luck and broke one of my toes. After few month of scooter break we resumed the scooter trips and we also added my elder daughter Majda on the bicycle. Our ride/run trips in three are even better :-).
