Eetu 10 years
Many happy returns to our lovely gentleman Eetu (B. Rumba) who celebrates his birthday 28.11.2012 with a big party! Congratulations also to Eetu's littermates!



Frida 12.07.1997 - 08.11.2012
Over 15 years ago we were present when Frida (B. Lucky Coin) came to this world as the first-born puppy of our very first litter. Today we were holding our old gray-nosed friend in our arms when she peacefully passed away and joined her mother Alma and all the littermates on the Rainbow Bridge.

Frida had a long, good and healthy life. The beautiful bitch was succesful both in show ring and in different hobbies gaining nice results and many champion titles. She made us so proud.

Frida was a kind and good-natured bitch and she was always friendly to other dogs and people. She was modest but in her quiet and gentle way she gained everybody's devotion. The last few years Frida was the dignified and respected leader among our dogs.

We knew that our time together was running out and we lived one day at a time with Frida. During the autumn months her condition started slowly to go down and we had to make the final and most difficult decision for her best and let her go.

Thank you Frida for all these years, we will meet again some day.
