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 🙁

September 2018

Finnish visit

For a half of year Jerry’s elder brother Hurma and his ownerladies moved from Finland to Prague. We met for a walk at Vítkov memorial and looking forward to next walks together.

Jerry

Jerry grew up in a big boy. He’s higher than Charlie is and weighting 26,5 kg.

Girls

Due to heat, we separated traditionaly our homes for girls and boys. Our girls watching the entrance gate.

And this way the’re watching in the living room.

And we also do a regular forest walks all together.

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!

Anniversary litter 13 months

Our Anniversary litter’s celebrated 13 months at July 9.

We have nice pictures and news from Woody. He’s a great cuddler and also loves to thumb on his back…

At home, I was trying to take some dog family pictures, but it is quite impossible to me to catch all our dogs in the shot.

Although I’m not a partidary of young dogs in the continental clip, I decided to shear Minion in it due to unexpected coat change (strange at this age, isn’t is :)?). We will have to wait a little until the clip fits and for the coat to grow up a little more. But by now both of us are very very contented.

Diamond had a little more bad luck. Due to parts of his coat completely missing and due to being extremely tangled I had to scissor him in a kind of modern clip. I truly hate this clip that makes him even bigger than he is. I’m really looking forward to clip him in something more suitable (yes, my secret wish is a continental too but we will se if we are able to maintain his hair).

Also our adults got a little bit shorter clips. Charlie is since some time ago being shaved “to the skin” from the top of nose to the top of the tail. We all realy love this trim, don’t ask me why…

And our Maja got the bikini trim again, still need to grow up some parts even more, but by now also contented.

And in the and a message to my mother: Mum, I love you even if you hate brushing 🙂

Regional Dogshow Džbán (CZ)

We attended a Regional Dogshow Džbán in Prague on 5th September with Charlie and Maja. The weather was warm and we enjoyed wonderful and calm sunny day.

The show was greatly organized, wonderful prices for the winners, fastfood and kiosk with dog supplies.

Both blondies compete in champion class under judge Alena Košťálová (CZ), both gaining the Regional Winner title and advanced to the afternoon competitions.

For the first (and probaby last) time were entered in competition of couples. It was great to try it!

In the final competition of the group IX FCI Maja was shortlisted which I consider a big succces for us.

Now, Charlie and Maja will have a show breat for some time and will devote to agility. You will see us (sporadicaly) in showrings with our youngsters.

IDS České Budějovice Autumn 2014

I’ve entered Maja to this year’s last show (and probably for some longer time last show) in České Budějovice. The poodles were judged by a breed specialist Sanda Kekez-Veselič. Maja got in open class excellent 1 CAC and fulfilled conditions for the Czech champion title.

We met there Maja’s litter brother Amber (Foster’s Lord Amber), who lives with his owner in Germany.

IDS Mladá Boleslav (CZ) 2014

We had a nice day the last August Sunday with Maja at IDS Mladá Boleslav (CZ). The poodles were judged by a breed specialist Jaroslava Ovesná (CZ).

Maja showed herself perfectly and was commended by the judgge for the type, nice head, pigmentation, topline and neck-set with result Ex. 1 CAC, res. CACIB. I’m very happy!

And finally after more than two years of searching I managed to find suitable rubber bands for the home oil banding which are not bursting! Laineé wrap bands. Pink colour was a clear choice for a blondie 🙂

Nice June 2014

This year is extremely busy for us. Finally, this June we had more time to spend with our dogs.

Club specialty Konopiště June 9th

After one year show break I entered Charlie to small club show near the place we live. I reported it in the spring post. Since the same day Charlie enjoys his terrier clip and lazy country life.

Outi Tenho visit in Prague June 21st

I had great opportunity to spend a Monday afternoon talking and sipping coffee with Outi Tenho and her daughter Rebecca from Old House kennel in Finland. Thank you both for the nice talk and hope to repeat it someday!

The last lesson of the agility course for begginers June 25th

The last Wednesday of June we spent on the last lesson of the agility course. The weather was perfect. This time there were prepared some jumps also for the owners. In the end of the lesson we has a hobby run. This time Maja was very quick and not concentered so we got a lot of  penalty points. Charlie ran – as usually – fine a certain and won the first place! He won other five free agility lessons for us and other nice gifts. We have a couple of videos from the end of the training, so the dogs are tired and unfocused a little. I’m sorry for not having rolled the first runs which were perfect to me.

National dogshow Klatovy June 29th

The last June Sunday I entered Maja to national dogshow in Klatovy (CZ). She was shown after a half year show break and with a lack of hair (eaten by Charlie a month and a half before). Despite of that – she realy had her day, she ran with energie and joy. In competition Maja won BOB!
