June 2019

First June day in our garden

Finally, after several days of cold and rain, the Sun appeared. It would be pitty if I hadn’t taken few pictures. Starring: Jerry, Minion, Donatello a Tessinka.

Maja arrived for grooming

I’m always looking forward to grooming Maja, usualy as she does. She loves all the procedures from bathing thru drying to grooming.

Litter A celebrated  4th birthday

We received nice pictures and a video from Woody (Anniversary Wood Ambershades)

Jerry representing on European dogshow

Jerry and his realization dream team (thank you Vendy, thank you Mom!) were brave enough to attend a European dogshow in Austrian Wels with temperatures reaching more than 35°C. Jerry brought home a VG from an intermediate class, but we’re contented with the result.

Seven puppies born on June 17

This will be the main topic for us for few upcoming weeks…hope not to annoy you too much. More information about litter B you can find here.

May 2019

Dog pack together and a little bit of spring in garden

Just Jerry…His life is still one big game 🙂

BTW, in May it’s been a years since Jerry lives with us…He’s grown up…a little 😀

Daddy and his little girl – both interchampions and multichampions…Not important at all, they’re both very contented garden dogs.

Expecting puppies

Now it’s official. We are expecting puppies after mid-June. All the preparations are culminating, I’m getting nervous more and more. But despite of that we’re really looking forward to little minions <3

I came to visit Alex – the dad of the expected litter. I tried to make some nice pictures, but I made mostly just the funny ones 😀

May weather

The weather in May was really bad here…it was cold and rainy mostly all the month. It was almost impossible to spend some time outside 🙁

Ice hockey world championship

We’re supporting the Czech team at the hockey championship. I mean mostly…Donatello is just loyal to his origins 😀

Greetings from Goldie

Goldie (Anniversary Gold Ambershades) sent us new pictures and greetings. Thank you very much for it and for the care 🙂

That’s all from May, next post will be very probably about the puppies 🙂

April 2019

This April was “a month of our blond girls”. We spent a lot of time outside the house, solving Maja’s plain troubles, resting and we mostly had great time together. There are few pics from our days.

Tess and her own micro bed

I finally understood, why there was a hole in our curtain and why is was getting bigger and bigger 🙂

The girls were hunting a mole

And we were spending generaly a lot of time on the fresh air that was obviously exhausting, as you can see on Mr. Donatello

When Maja found out shes not able to satisfy her endless apetite anywhere else in our home, she ate some horse encyclopedies…

…and some more books, mostly educative ones…And an edge of my bachelor thesis and a diploma… My Mom admited that Maja’s is kind of study type equally as I am 😀

It resulted inevitable to make some protective solution of my libraty:

 

There are our girls in one of many walks by the river Sazava

Rainy Sundays are designed just perfectly for whole-day-stay-in-bed – exactly as Donatello is….

Charlie celebrated the 10th birthday

Selfie with Minion and Maja

I received a wonderful birhtday surprise from a very dear friend of mine Outi from Finland. Thank you very much for it <3

I had to try it on our girls on just next day. There’s Maja on the first pic a both girls on the second photo

As I’m mentioning the gifts, my poodle collection had expanded with two new chocolate poodles

There are few pictures from an Easter Monday from our garden

Donatello cares very carefully of our visits

And in the end, I probably should mention that “there’s something coming up”. You might should look here time to time, there will be an update soon 😉

March 2019

Family Darts Tournament

We made a family darts tournament in our small family pub. If I say ‘family’, I mean all the family members attended 😀 Just notice Donatello’s hard Sunday morning on the last picture.

I’ve always had some moral blocks with transporting my dogs in the pickup and never tried before. Finally it’s evident the dogs really don’t matter.

Excerising, excersizing

We’re ….excersizing….and excersizing. Even Mr. Donatello excersizes. I’m really loking forward to longer days when we would be able to stay outside longer time…and we would excersize less. The girls probably won’t like that, but I think I’m not doing anything else but excersizing for the last nine months and I would be glad for some break.

We’ve found a shiba

Or the shiba found us? Whatever, the good new is that the owners appeared on the second day and we still have “only” six dogs.

New photos from Woody

We got some nice photos from Woody from A litter. Thank you 🙂

Whole dog pack together

On the third March weekeng we’ve had all our six dogs at home.

I tried to make a spring family picture, but they didn’t have time for me. From the left: Maja (mom), Minion (daughter), Charlie (dad).

Jerry got a fresh hairdo, nic boy again 🙂

Despite our small house is really not made for this amount of dogs together, we enjoyed the weekend a lot 🙂

February 2019

February snow

We we lucky we could enjoy the snow to the mid-February.

Girls in action

We are practicing balance excersize from 3 to 5 times a week. When I open the door to the dog gym, all the dogs are quickly in and start to bark they want to practice. I also try to train with Donatello, but he’s a special case 🙂

Jerry’s grooming

I must admit Jerry is very handsome boy. I anybody volunteered to wash and dry him instead of me, I wouldn’t object to it 🙂

Spulka watch tower

After a thousand years at leas, we met with my very dear friend Vendy and her Rudie (who’s in love with Minion for years). We spent a wonderful time on trip to Spulka. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed a lot of sun, temperature above 10 degrees a also the snow!

This brooche is made of “trash” – more precisely from recycled electronic components. It was a gift from Vendy and its truly amazing.

Donatello “9”

On Saturday 27 our spotty Donatello celebrated the 9th birthday. As usually, he took it easy 😀

January 2019

This January was a little bit less active for us from what we’ve planned. But finally it was funny and mostly white 🙂

 

We’ve extended the dog gym equipment with some new gadgets. We’re strenghtening the body core, the knees…and we’re tiring the dog brains 🙂 You should see how tired they are after few minutes of thinking and ballancing. For me an ideal activity to supplement winter short days.

 

At the beginning of January I’ve accompanied Jerry’s bro Hurma and his ownerladies to the airport on their way back home to Finland.

Tessie got a new dog bed in her micro size. Sometimes also Minion tries to get in 🙂 BTW we also have huge dog beds at home, but they’re probably not very IN.

The days started to be longer a little, despite that we mostly made dark walks. I’m glad we bought the illuminated collars.

Due to holidays and because of I was ill our grooming interval got too long and finally I didn’t know where to start. So I started with Jerry. Truly amazing dog <3.

 

And one more show animation

December 2018

Trip to Prague CACIB

On the first December Sunday we made a trip to Prague CACIB show to show a big dogshow world to Jerry.

First of all, I had to bath and groom a hairy-monster adolescent not groomed for few months.

I was pretty contented with the result, considering Jerry’s back hair had about 5 cm before grooming 🙂

 

Since the last grooming Jerry matured and I must say he’s handsome boy 🙂

I’ve read a lot of hates for this autumn Prague show. The amount of people there was terrible as they made a one day show instead of two days. But Jerry was such a sweatheart! For the first time in this big world and did really well, I think even better than usualy Minion does, as she hates this kind of crowded places.

We were training

Very slightly…we strarted to train for the show ring 😀

Charlie in wellness

Charlie had a month wellness stay in our house. He had trouble with back pain due to his age and a former knee injury that hadn’t been excersized properly. Charlie was practicing hardly twice a day for gaining correct body musculature. In the end of his stay he had a manual therapy. Back home Charlie arrived moving freely and painlessly, thinner and generaly happier and at least five years mentally younger. Let’s see, how it develops in the future.

Jerry best junion male

On Sunday December 16 Jerry participated his first show ever. Trully historical moment. I’ve chosen one of my favourite clubshows – small Advent club specialty with great atmosphere.

Jerry is happy and funny adolescent, there’ll be a lot of work to make our show presentation perfect 🙂 Jerry baited me with ambling but also had nice rings troting properly. Finally was awarded with club junior CC from the class and #1 best junior male all sizes and colours from the finals. Poodles were judged by Ms Alena Kostalova.

Jerry was supported by his elder brother Hurmar and his ownerladies. We’re all pictured below.

We’re also pictured by a pro-photographer:

We really enjoyed this day, except a tragical experience in the hotel restaurant with an international impact. What a shame! The next time I will call for pizza delivery 🙂

I got wonderful christmas gift from our dear Finnish friends. Thank you very much, girls!

Christmas

Our Christmas were very very typical. The girls had a fight right under the christmas tree because of one of the new toys. On the next day we left for some fresh air to the mountains. After couple of years (and even more) we had wonderful white chrismas holidays.

On the way for the mountains we made a stop for a walk and we climbed to ruins of some former fortress.

Cestou na hory jsme si dali venčící mezipřistání a vyšplhali na zbytky nějaké tvrze:

For the rest of the week, we had views like this one…

On every day we had at least one realy big walk trip.

Tess, being five week after the knee ligament surgery, had kind of saving mode. I must it was self-denial for her 🙂 My barking back pack made a lot of smile on other tourist faces 😀

The fresh air realy exhausts 🙂

We had such a nice time <3

The second half of our dog pack on the last day of December made a trip to watchtower Spulka.

PF 2019

We wish you a peaceful Christmas moments and for the new year only the best! 🐩🐾

November 2018

November has been a creative and also a walking month. Due to the winter time we mostly walk the dogs with a torch after the darkness falls, so during the weekends we did a daylight walks together with a rest of our dog and family pack.

MinionDonatello and Tess had to wait until I clean up our family pub. Then we could walk for the nature. There’s Maja on the second picture watching the village aslo from the pub.

Tessie with broken knee ligaments participated our walks being carried. Thank god she weights only 2,5 kg.

And the rest of them were walking on their own…

We also spent few November afternoons sewing new winter dog jackets, while the girls were wathing the village center from the window…

And there they are… Charlie and Minion in the new jackets. On the second picture there’s Jerry in his new dinosaurus jacket 😀

Mmy shades of amber …

After few months I couldn’t work I started to groom our pack. Finally also Charlie is handsome nicely smelling boy. I must admit he’s enjoing the stay in house a lot 🙂

Tessie’s crucial ligament surgery was postponed for one week later. On this picture she’s one day after the surgery and trying to be a boss of my office. Just typical Tess. In the beginning of December we have an appointment for the control x-ray and then we will have other one and a half moth of a restricted calm regime.

October 2018

Our October was calm and resfull, compared to our active September.

As usual, my best partner for having rest was Donatello, but even the girls did great job 😀

Maja and her typical back-lying positions

But we had wondefull time, no boredom at all!

Girls had prepared a “sponge meal” to herself on evening 😀

Maja “uncommonly” helped me to “clean up” a cake form. It was a little bit not comfortable for her to navigate our articulate house wearing the form over her eyes, but she dit it 😀

I must admit that Maja’s eating habits had affected again the rest of our dogs so I will have to set up some stricter order when she leaves for home. And here we go again in 6 months again 😀

Tha last October Saturday our yorkie Tess jumped down the couch badly and broke the crutiate ligaments in her right knee. No, I’m not joking 🙁
