Letter from China 😊 for her sister

China (ANNIVERSARY CHINA Ambershades) sent a letter for our Minion <3

Hello Minion, how do you do? I’ve heard you’d had a surgery. I hope your knee is recovering well. What did you do? I’m fortunately healthy, but I’m mostly walked on lead by my both big owners as I’m able to eat everything I find  outside and then I don’t usually feel the best…

As a greeting I send you my show pictures. I’m just joking, I’m a hairy monster, so my ownerlady had to cut my excess hair before planned bathing and grooming just for just making that quicker. I’m still not being such a good friend with the dryer. Sometimes I still bark on the hoover, but very rarely now 😊.

And there are few pics after “aunt” Tereza grommed me. Don’t I look fabulous?

In May, me made a superb trip to Jachymov. It was pretty hot, but due to it they let me to taste some mountain streams. A little bit cold, but very tasty water. We walked in the forest,  for a watchtower and on the pathways to Bozi Dar. We had really nice time there.

We went to see some strange ponds. The ownerlady said that these are the tanks for snow cannons. I didn’t understand what she means, but there was a very tempting duck in the water. I would like to jump to the water and play with it, but I wasn’t allowed.

Despite we visited a pastry shop in Ostrov, they didn’t let me to order any piece of cake or just an ice cream. They told me that it is not good for dogs. Finnaly, the good point of this trip was that dogs were allowed to visit a pallace park…

Our last trip in Jachymov was an anabase. In 40 minutes we climbed about a kilometer long route to Gorila Rock with 200 meter of cant. My big owners said it was very nice view from there, but I didn’t appreciate it. The climbing uphill was interesting for me – lots of  twigs, spruces…and ticks. The route downhill was more interesting either. The two-leg company was sliding all the time. I don’t understand why we had to climb there, but in the end it was funny, when some people of my pack slided down over their butts 😊.

Highways and byways

On the top

Do we really go downhill this way? Ok, it will be funny.

I usualy don’t use a lift this way, somebody might went crazy😊.

When it’s hot outsite, I usualy look like this. It’s pitty it’s too hot for dog scootering.

And Minion replies:

Hey China!

I’m glad for your letter. I even thank you for the pictures. I’m mostly closed home last days 🙁 so I’m happy to travel  at least virtualy with your pics.

Well, I didn’t really do anything wrong, I just sliced a little by while walking outside and then started to limp a little bit. I didn’t mind, I had no problem running on the 3 spare legs, I even managed to hunt a chicken…But my ownerlady said me one day something about cruciate ligament rupture and that I have to go for the surgery. One afternoon I woke up with a funnel on my head, shaved leg and since then I’m going outside only on lead, exactly like you 🙁

Your trim is fine, I got lately Miami clip again. I was said it’s because of the shaven leg, but I’m suspicious that my ownerlady is just in love with this kind of clip and due to the surgery she doesn’t need to explain home why she groomed me like this…

I also like the ponds, last summer I learned to swim in Balaton. On the rehab, the vet said swimming will be also a part of my convalescence. I also would like to play with a duck :), but I will have to do it “secretely” otherwise my owners will not let me…

BTW I also know to use a lift, I use it while I’m going to our Grandma who takes care of me in days I have vet checks or rehabs. And my owners carry me like you last days frequently, I can’t climb stairs or jump anywhere.

So, thank you once again for the letter and let me know about your new trips.

Have nice time

Your sis Mini

PS: also our Mom Maja sends best wishes

Woody 3-years-old

On June 9 our Anniversary litter celebrated their 3rd birthday! I’ve found in my mailbox very nice surprise – pictures and a message of Woody (ANNIVERSARY WOOD Ambershades). Thank you very much for them!

Everybody from Ambershades sends the best birthday wishes to all the Anniversary littermates!  And even above to Diamond <3

Wels in December

We’ve just completed our more than succesful show season in Wels, Austria, on December 2.

This year’s Wels CACIB has seem to be smaller than in the last years to us, but definitely it didn’t matter – more space around the rings, more space in the stall halls 🙂 For me there was a perfect linghtning – warm white light in which Minion has her own colour (doesn’t look like too light).

Minion was entered in the champion class and was excellent! She won Ex. 1, CACA, CACIB, best female and BOB under Ms. Iris Urschitz! I’m very proud that I can announce she became a new Champion of Austria and new interchampion (C. I. B.)! The best end of the show season ever!

Diamond 29 months

In the summer I gave up my effort to grow up Diamond‘s coat…so…I shaved him down. It started to grow up again, but he’s again completely chewed from one side :/ (so I made a pictures from the other :))

This week I receive very nice news. There arrived his genetic results for vWD and they’re clear!

Woody’s funny late summer

We’ve received news from Woody together with two videos and a pictures. I can see his father Charlie in him, both visualy and from the description of his behaviour from Woody’s ownerlady. On the videos, there’s Woody and his smaller (but elder) brother Zorba.

According to Woody’s relax position, it is obvious that his origin is in our family 😀

Big thanks to the owners, he really looks happy!

Goldies summer pictures

There are few pictures from Goldie (Anniversary Gold Ambershades). He enjoys the summer a lot, obviously.

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!


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


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’.


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 😊


Resting, don’t disturb…


Trip for the Death pond near Jáchymov near Karlovy Vary. 

Give me the blueberry…

Moss pathway posing near Boží Dar.


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 😊.

Hunter shelter posing near Kladno during our trip to lookout tower. Pack of girls, dads and two very ‘clean’ dog ladies – labrador girl and our China.

Second Birthday of Anniversary Litter

UPDATED: added photos of Goldie

We can’t stop the time flying. Anniversary littermates‘ve celebrated the 2nd birthday!

We made a small family birthday party at home: from left above Minion, Maja, Charlie, Diamond, bottom from left Donatello and Tessinka.

Untill we managed to set all the dogs in their places for the picture, Maja has stolen few pieces of salmon from the birthday cake (quickly and unnoticed as usually).

We also got Woody‘s pictures of freshly-being-two-years-old – big thanks!

And this one is a birthday greeting picture of Pamino (Anniversary Wood Ambershades) from Facebook.

And also there are pictures from Goldie (Anniversary Gold Ambershades) just few days before he turned two.

And for those who’re interested how we’re passing the hot days – we can show that very very cool 🙂 We wish everyone to have cool summer!

Minion’s barbie pictures

We’ve already written a report from Coronation clubshow. Except of very satisfying results we brought home, our very talended friend Vendy took a lots of nice barbie pictures. I must admit she’d had very hard work with us…:)

My blondie didn’t wanted to keep still for a while…

…but Vedy did a great job and caught very nice shots…

And there are pictures of both of us…As you can see, it is not easy to agree on having an inteligent expression both in one shot…:)

Huge thanks!

December 2016

In December our “puppies” from the Anniversary litter have celebrated 18 months of life and it means they’re adult in accordance with the Czech breeding regulations. But they will probably need some more time to get truly matured 🙂

On that ocassion, Woody‘s sent us some new pictures (together with his friend Zorba, running on the walk and his favourite position for having rest).

In mid December our Tess has celebrated 8th birthday and became a first veteran in our pack. We wished her a lot of health and many other years together.

And on 18 December sisters China a Minion met on an Advent Club show.

China got in the intermediate class Ex. 1 and a club CC. In the afternoon she was first in the competition Child and dog with her little ownerlady.

Minion got in competition in the open class Ex. 1 and club CC.

The weather outside was really bad, so we had no chance to have a walk and also the time for the indoor play was very short…
