On Monday evening, January 4, 2021, our Tess suddenly left us 🌈. Our little, stubborn, barking-ever, furious and extremely brave little boss. There is already unbearable silence without her 💔 My first own dog, my first and last terrier. Run free our little girl, and greet Daja and your Mom there. We will never forget 🖤😭😭😭
At the end of October I’ve started again working in homeoffice regime. I’ve hired two new work quality controllers – Minion and Tess💻
Girls and boys groomed
Even in autumn we did a lot of grooming. I’ve just didn’t take enogh pictures. Here we have Růženka, Minion, Maja, Jerry and Tess with Donatello. ✂✂
We did plenty of walks. This year there is a lot of mud everywhere, we would prefer less of it…
Never-ending-story of wooden spoons
At home we have a large consumption of wooden spoons. I always thought the younger ones copy it from the older ones. But when came a photo from Sunny, I realized that it must be a genetics issue as she has nobody at home to copy it from🙈
There are few pictures from our plain home activity
This is our girl’s window. It doesn’t make much sense to clean it as they make pictures on it with their vet noses all the time and they’re watching what’s happening outside.
Only our Maja manages to entagle herself in separating net in car on the way from vet’s to home…🙈
Good night wishes our Karkulka
First snow that lasted for three days only
We’re having fun with ownerladies of “by B-litter girls” taking pictures of how the girls are able to twist their legs 🤣 Sunny twice, Kiwi and Růženka. They’re from the same nest…
And in the end of this post I must say we are all looking forward to the winter solstice, when the days will slowly begin to lengthen again. So take care of yourself in this crazy time.
We enjoyed this summer in calm and peace, mostly at home in our family circle.
Maja’s just celebrated her 8th birthday. She runs as puppy, despite her nutritional condition is more than affluent.
We spent a lot of time outside gardening, both flowers and vegetables
We did a little bit of grooming…we didn’t overdo it at all, we were missing people to do that
We didn’t forget to have chill and rest, of course.
Our most favourite and frequent activity was walking outside. The summer is a great period for walking.
The peak of whole summer was a meeting of our “expanded family” in Seč. We had such a great day with our friend and hope to repeat it on next year.
Despite it was a mid September, we had a wonderful summer weather. The girls could swim in the dam, Růženka for her first time.
Spring evening in our garden
Jerry came to get a haircut, so he and Růženka had their favourite running games
Růženka has a new haircut. This year, according to corona, it didn’t look like that there are any shows held and her plenty of hair and endless combing was a little too much for me … Don’t worry … before she goes somewhere to show herself, it’ll grow up …
Donatello did construction supervision
The girls celebrated their first birthday – this time we didn’t make any big party. I’ll fix it next year. One birthday animation.
Maja in summer clip (she’s not bored 🤣)
Růžena and Karkulka are experts in extreme sleep positions, so here are few of them
A new photo from Goldie (ANNIVERSARY GOLD Ambershades) has arrived. He’s on it with new friends.
There are few pictures from this winter, from the owners of our litters.

Girls in the mountains
First June day in our garden
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.
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
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 😉
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!
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.
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.
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…
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.
Our October was calm and resfull, compared to our active September.
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 🙁
