This was obviously the winter... when i wasn't suppose to have puppies, both GAIL & GEMMA was empty.
this is not a dog related pic, but my absolute favourite... BOS-PUPPY
& BOB POODLE "WHAT
A SUCCESSFUL EASTER WEEKEND" on
the 14th of mars the following dogs were tested for pra: Cool
Crowd's Absolute Hattori Hanzo does it again...
9.8.09 was another show weekend for the cool crowd dogs.
This time in turku, finland....
A hot and very windy day with ups & downs =)
the biggest down was TRISTANS critic from judge petru muntean...
"a beautiful and perfect female" =)
As the pic show, he's small for his age. so i just said ok, i'll take the balls off and come back =)
He got very much plus on his movements though and a "very good"-stripe + the 4th place in junior class.
and over to the big big UP for the day,
JUSTIN going best male with CAC and then BOS.
This means the trip was well worth doing =)
It would be great fun to know what the judge thougt about him, but since it's in finnish i don't have a clue =)
NANCY did an "inbetween" performance and finished of as 4th in open class with excellent.
a big hug to sari at passer-by cresteds for a truly nice chat =)
SUNDAY the 26 of july was a cloudy day & also the day for 3 of our cool dogs to enter a show ring for the first time.
It was an inofficial show in älmhult, wich is the capitol of the famous IKEA =)
CC'S FABULOUS FERNANDO SUCRE was first to go, and how uncool he was !!!
He wouldn't move a meter =)
But he liked the judge, so she was kind enough to let me lift him and walk across the ring and put fernando down and run towards her, AND HE DID !
so she wrote " moves very nice comming" =)
he went without any price of honour... hmmm
Then it was over to CC'S FABULOUS GRETCHEN MORGAN, who was crazy happy and ran, jumped, stopped & ran again =)
she got her price of honour and was BEST OF BREED PUPPY...
a win not worth mentioning since she was just crazy =)
we also had AMETYST ROINGOLD with us this day & I was so excited to see how he would react on the show ground...
what was i thinking !!
What could possibly disturb this ultra cool happy boy =)
He is like a rough diamond just waiting to be polished off... in other words an upcomming show machine =)
spite this he came last in open class !!!
but i'm not bothered by that at all =)
WE´re EXTREMELY PROUD to announce that AMUCH SUCH FINUCH NUCH NORDUCH ERIN N' SPARKYANNA'S HUCK FINN is staying with us.
He's the ONLY DALMATIAN IN SWEDEN who's an american champ, & that's just awesome...
His first show will be in denmark during the autumn...
MORE PIC'S OF OUR BEAUTIFUL PUPPIES....
this is COOL CROWD'S FABULOUS SARA TANCREDI enjoying the swedish summer...
Thanks katarina & co for sharing them =)
BEAUTIFUL pics of a beautiful little doll...
This is COOL CROWDS'S HI I'M LYNETTE SCAVO aka JOY
Thank you marie at Shellcrestz crested for sending them to me =)
4.7.09 DOUBLE NAT SPECIALITY SHOW IN BORNHOLM..
This extremly warm day our dogs were showed twice (crazy) without any splendid results... but i'm proud of them, they did their job as I want it to be done under hard conditions.
The team for the weekend was our CHINETTA'S CHEAP & CHIC, LENERO SUPER CIAPKY, EKRYDA TRISTAN and CHINETTA'S CO JAMBALAYA, he's owned by chinetta's cresteds.
All 3 cresteds got just "very good" from judge marit sunde in the first show.
But the big joy here was that TAIJAN DREAMER EMOTIONS (daddy to bree & mikey) took the CAC and went champion in denmark =) well done Åsa, i'm so glad for you !
The afternoon show went a bit better..
JAMBA won juniorclass & ended up as 2nd best male, NANCY came 2nd in pen class + 3d best bitch & JUSTIN came 4th in open class & they all got excellent...
5.7.09 NAT SHOW IN BORNHOLM
After one hell of a day yesterday we all were a bit low when this day started...
today TRISTAN was entered as well, and since his last rodeo show-off in finland my husband took him in the ring.
and guess what... he did it as he used to =) but that didn't help much since the judge thought he had a lack of masculinity !!!!
Especially his head was to feminine !!!!
JAMBA came 2nd in open class, JUSTIN came 3rd in open class & NANCY 3rd as well in her open class & they all got excellent.
On a sunny friday in june, the kennel got some fine guests =)
Pernilla + diva, bridget & megan travelled quite far to visit us.
We had a few hours to let all the dogs say hi to oneanother & by lunchtime we drove to Anne & met up with the worlds greatest web-anki + a new pack of dogs.
Anne had prepared a surprice for us out in the woods =)
... & my god what a place...
We walked in some difficult ups & downs to stop for barbeque-ing at a water-fall so beautiful is was close to unreal...
I want to tell the 3 of you, you made my afternoon to something really special.
You are all fenomenal & I'm one lucky woman who had the chance to get to know you all.
I also know I wrote a few years ago that Anne's home is a "hilton for dogs", but you all provide your cresteds with hilton standard & that moves my heart.
love you girl's and no matter what i will always be there for you =)
11.6.09 we drove to stockholm & the vikingline boat that took us to helsinki in Finland.
Me, my husband, 3 cresteds & 1 dalmatian on 4 square meters, but at least this time we were on the boat =)
not as last weekend when we missed the boat to estonia...
Arriving in helsinki quite exhausted by all the tax-free drinks & all the kareeoke singing we drove 13 miles to KOTKA and a (5 star) camping called Santalahti, were we stayed during our visit.
Do i have to point out we love our 70's retro tent =)
Saturday morning started early with some serious grooming, and then to the show arena.
CC'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO / CODY was first of our dogs and he started the day by winning the champion class, and after that becomming BEST MALE + CAC + CACIB = HE'S NOW A FINNISH & INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION!! That drumroll i had in my head switched to TINA TURNERS "simply the best" tra la la...
but i was very quickly back on the ground again, with TALK ABOUT ME OF ROXY'S PRIDE / ROX in the leach...
that still thinks show places are a bit scary.
She did really well though during individual judging and got her first EXCELLENT / CK.
she was unplaced in junior class...
NANCY was entered in open class and truly taken by this sunny day. but i'm proud of her, she gave me all she had and ended up as second in open class with EXCELLENT.
she was unplaced in best bitch...
and now to the BEST OF BREED starring cody and a black female...
after some running and again a change of song in my head, this time to ABBA'S "the winner takes it all" CODY WENT BEST OF BREED !
and the man making that happen was judge juha kares, who wrote the critic in finnish, and at the "translations-office" she was stunned by what was written.
She said that she had never seen such a critic before, everything was über-über perfect =) =)
Sunday morning it was time for EKRYDA TRISTAN to do his first running in finland, and that he did as he use to, very close to perfection =)
and he even showed his teeth for the nice irish judge, but then something happend...
he started jumping like a crazy rodeo bull from the left to the right, he really chocked me...
so there went the excellent and he got a red "very good" stripe instead....
well well, shit happens =)
and we will see to that it not happens again...
COOL CROWD'S CUTE CIMONO NO-NO / summer has attended her first inoff show togheter with her eminent owner Britt.
After a lot of training she went BEST OF BREED...
i'm so very proud of you =)
I know how much hard work there is behind this !
Britt, you're one of a kind & keep up the good work.
On the 23rd of May...
GEMMA was entered to a breed-specialty-show in Gränna, the town of the polka sticks.
She won open class with excellent and ended up as 4th best bitch!!
Good work from a 7 year old corso-doll =)
The hat off for corragio's corsos for both the cac's & john-john for the BOB placement...
FRIDAY the 15th of may we started our trip to the north of sweden, it was show time in piteå, 120 miles away from our town.
We drove for 13,5 hour so we were a bit exausted ariving at the show ground late friday evening.
Our accomodation for this weekend was a 5 star tent from the early 70s and as you can see the show mobile is an old ambulance so we travel SAFE =)
Saturday morning EKRYDA TRISTAN entered the ring for the last time as a puppy & again he went BEST O BREED PUP.
and judge BENGT-ÅKE BOGREN is as always a joy to show a dog for.
He must be one of the nicest judges there is.
and then to another judge... the corso judge from serbia, who wasn't informed by the ring crew of the swedish regulations.
He wasn't told the difference of "very good" and "excellent"...
so there were no cac's handed out or no best of breed !!!
but our darling GEMMA won open class with an "excellent" critic.
He wrote she was in very good condition for age =)
..and at 3 o'clock it was time for the puppy finals... AND GUESS WHAT TRISTAN DID...
HE PLACED HIMSELF ON THE BEST IN SHOW 2 PLACE =)...
I'm thrilled about how he shows himself and how he develops. what a dog =)
the evening we spent bbq-ing and celebrating in a cold cold piteå.
But a few malibu & coke helped the heat up a bit =)
Sunday morning started with serious grooming of CC'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO and CHINETTA'S CHEAP & CHIC.
Roxy was entered and with us, but we decided not to show her since she's still not back in right attitude.
Cody was unplaced in open class & Nancy came second in bitch open class with excellent =)
.. and again she was a joy to show, she's just so happy and fun.
9.5.09 NATIONAL SHOW IN LARV
The team of the day was a bit different than it use to be.
We brought EKRYDA TRISTAN & GEMMA for this show, so i didn't spend more than 30 min on grooming =)
absolutly great !!!
TRISTAN was first and this show he had a bit of competition,
but as the star he is he got the BOB-placement.
GEMMA was entered in open class and there were 3 females in that class.
She ended up as 2nd best bitch in open class with excellent & finished as 3d best female of the day...
she was in a splendid mood and galopped and jumped to here & there,
it's hard to beliave she's 7 years old =)...
I loved to see her enjoying the presence in the ring and we will se moore of her...
Speaking of enjoying the ring, in the final, our ultra-mega-simply-the-best TRISTAN did an amazing lap again.
He was the first puppy to enter the big final ring and did it like true show machine =)
... and what did the judge jackie perry think about that ??
We will never know, because she wasn't at or in the ring when we were called in !!!!
a f***ing shame, if you ask me =)
But she saw some good qualities in our spotted darling & placed him at the BEST IN SHOW RESERVE PLACE
...and back came the silly fat smile =)
2.5.09 INTERNATIONAL SHOW IN AALBORG - DENMARK
This weekend we packed together CC'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO, TOURNAIS SALT N' PEPPAR & TALK ABOUT ME OF ROXY'S PRIDE and took the boat to aalborg in denmark.
I will begin to warn you about book room at the so called zleep-hotels in denmark !!!
This was the worst room to the highest price ever... the room was in the size of a shoe box, and i mean shoe box, not as big as a pair boots box... it was supposed to be a double room, at least they charged you for that.
the bed was 120 cm and to fit in 2 adults + cresteds + packing was out of the question...
the staff was so very rude as well...
anyway... now to the show..
Roxy who's 100 % in heat started the day in puppy class.
She was the only one and surpricingly the judge liked her though she didn't show herself especially good.
The best sentence on her critic was "the round eyes destroy the expression"....
did he want them squared !! =)
Cody was one out of two males in champion class and came in second without any excellent because of his "bad skincondition"...
and Troyha won the open class also without excellent due to undeveloped brisket...
so it's and undarstatement to say it was a shitty weekend =) & we didn't stay for the puppy final...
25.4.09 .... another inoff show with the youngsters, this time in ödeshög...
The showmobile was loaded with TAIJAN DREAMER ROCKIN HELLS KITCHEN, EKRYDA TRISTAN & KINGSLEAH MISTRAL.
Little gordon ramsey was in a rockin good mood this morning and went best baby puppy out of 4 and then BOB.
The day went on and by the time for the finals he'd studied "how to do it" for a long time. And out of a whole bunch of other breeds baby puppies, HE JUST TROTTED LAP AFTER LAP & ENDED UP AS BEST IN SHOW NO 2... that's what i call a future star =)
this was his first show ever and tha judge wrote on his critic: he "sparkled like the little star he is" ...
If you ask me he both rocked, ruled & kicked ass =)
Hani was next boy to enter the ring. & he did it limping !!!! not good at all.
Anyway he got a good critic + BOB-puppy from the judge christer mättik, who by the way is an afghan expert.
and last but not least... TRISTAN, he's improving in a scary way =)
he went BOB-puppy for judge patrik cederlöv.
The very same patrik was the final judge as well, and i coulnd't believe my eyes when tristan started running 1 meter ahead of me on a loose leach & just kept speeding the tempo =)
I had big problems to keep up with him & make the presentation justice...
AND IT TOOK US TO THE PLACE WERE THEY PUT THE BEST DOG FOR THE DAY... aka BEST IN SHOW...
Totaly amazing to have those wonderful dogs and the whole season in front of you.
So after packing the showmobile full of best in show puppies + all things they won, wich was a lot... i drove home with a big fat smile on my face,
& the last time i checked the mirror it was still there =)
18.4.09 was the date for the swedish toydog assosiation specialty show in Forshaga.
The team for this show was TALK ABOUT ME OF ROXY'S PRIDE, CC'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO & TOURNAIS SALT N'PEPPER...
Rox started the day with a bad attitide and ended it at 2nd place in bitch puppy class with the following critic:
"correct size, female expression, dark eyes, bite should be better, very good topline, very good front, excellent skin, correct angulations, very good movement"
Cody was placed as no4 in a strong open class:
"masculine expression, correct head, dark eyes, very good bite, correkt topline, correct front, very good muscles and angulation, correct skinn, friendly temperament, very good movement"
and troyha was unplaced in open class:
"female expression, dark eyes, excellent bite, big ears, correct topline, very good front, correct muscles and angulation, very good coat, very good movement"
all to all, it was a funny show. I'm very greatful towars Pernilla and Britt for staying the whole day and for to see litle bridget and summer again.
It moved my heart to se Summer so cool at a dog show, as i remember it she hated it.
So the hat of for you britt, who's putting time & effort in building her that kind of confidence =)
also big big congrats to the gingerbread-girl for some kick-ass-i-won-it-all-winning, way to go girl =)
this EASTER WEEKEND we went to a boxer club's inoff show in växjö with our afghan & dalmatian youngsters.
This was hani's first experience of a dogshow & he was far from inbetween...
he went from a bit terrified to totaly upset & yelled at everything that moved =) He came to his sences after realizing that the meatballs continued to be served as long as he pleased "his mom".
He was the only afghan puppy so he went BOB.
Tristan showed that he's capable to store information, & had developed a lot since our last show.
He was the only dalmatian puppy and he went BOB as well.
We didn't stay for the finals since the weather was really super.
Our dogs enjoyed the rest of the day in the garden while we were barbeque-ing =)
Again i had the opportunity to meet two wonderful people, Joy's new parents =)
They arrived from far up in sweden to bring thier little doll home. By the rapport this morning everything went great, joy settled in and started to play directly & i'm not surpriced =)
I've seen her crazy-messing with her sibblings, & she's very good at that...
so i'm sending you my best wishes for the future & thank you for picking me as your breeder =)
These beautiful paintings is made by Michelle who's my great great web masters daughter!
The first is of cc's drive it like you stole it / pixi.
Second is of cc's absolute beatrix kidoo / ginny...
and i think it's a higher form of art. so very well made =)
so anki, if you ever decide to retire, i know who to ask for help =)
[klick images for larger view]
this weekend SCOOF and YUMMI took of for their new families.
SCOOF'S new calling name is ATLAS & that is a lappic word for lucky, very suitable i think.
He moved in with Illka & Anne Kivelä + their cresteds Dandy, Rambo & Elmeri. So now he will get totaly spoiled & he will get the seat next to illka in his mercedes cabriolet =)
By excperience i know that this home has HILTON standard & I'm so so so pleased that atlas came to the both of you!!
& YUMMI, wich is a splendid word for something that's just YUMMI... so again a very suitable name =)
She's moving to katarina & family + fonzie the crested.. and something tells me she will get the status of the crown jewels.
I know you've been waiting & waiting for the "pick-up" day, and the look in katarinas face when entering the kitchen and picking up yummi was just beautiful, so filled with love & warm emotions...
and that's not all, she brought an exclusive gift for me & my husband.
Delicacys like parmesan cheese, delicious pasta, kalamati olives, extra virgin olive oil, sundried tomato pesto was wrapped in a very cool way.
That was very fancy & generous of you, and highly appreciated... and it tasted YUMMI =)
so this was a totaly successfull weekend i my oppinion.
A best of breed win at cruft's can't beat the satisfaction of knowing that my guys & dolls got this high standars homes with such loving and nice "parents"...
so i certainly hope they will bring their new owners many years of fun & joy!
Now we found a new super home for Kane
He moved to Thomas & his family and as far as we've heard everything goes really great.
We wish them the best of luck with their handsome new crested =)
SOLINO'S LENNOX LEWIS was tested for PRA with a clear result - 25.2.09
CHINETTA'S CHEAP & CHIC was tested for PRA with a clear result - 25.2.09
Another show, another country...
21.2 we drove to bö in norway to show CC'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO + CHINETTA'S CHEAP & CHIC.
I was quite surpriced when the papers came and i saw i'd entered nancy instead of troyha !!!
well well... off we went, and after driving for 7 hours we arrived in a very very snowy norway.
Cody started with winning open class with excellent and finished with 2nd best male + CACIB...
and our little (for the time beeing) fat & happy nancy, was placed as no 4 in open class without any excellent just because she was toooo fat & loose for mr judge =)...
but i must say i really enjoyed showing her.
She's been away from the rings for so long, but did it so very pleasing =) so i just have to enter her to some kind of strict training camp & she will be back in "dangerous" shape =)
i think it's about time i officially hand out a few medallions to my near & dear ones...
I begin with my HUSBAND, who got up 1 o clock in the night to drive us to this show. (he drives to all shows we go to) not only that,
he drove back to sweden as well, and that trip took 11½ hours because of the bad weahter...
He's constantly beeing there to help out with no matter what...this must be true love =)
and for my super splendid always helping DAD, who takes care of the not-at-the-moment-show-dogs we leave at home every time we go for shows.
and last but absolutley not least the woman behind making-it-possible-for-you-to-read-this... annica the world greatest web-master-fixer =)
the three of you is very very important for me in all this, not much of what's going on at the kennel would be possible if it wasn't for all of you.
so millions of hugs & kisses + tons of gratitude, from me to you =)
On the 14th of february it was international show in denmark and we went with DKUCH CC'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO / CODY & TOURNAIS SALT N'PEPPER / TROYHA.
Cody was entered in champion class and that one he won, there were only two males in this class and the judge wasn't impressed by any of them.
They had a lack of temperament he said... so maybe he would have liked Cody in his early age when he was so full of temperament that you could hear him at the ringside when he was passing the vet-exam =)...
anyway he finished as 3rd best male
Troyha was entered in intermedian class, and she was the only one there so she won that class, and ended up as 4th best bitch.
Congratulations to annika who went best of breed with her female, and to wendy for the BOS placement =)
a new baby star
entered the kennel before x-mas, he's a very special guy and he definatelly have that kick ass attitude i love in a dog.
so for Per-Ove, his eminent breeder, I send a flower store, two times a day...
thank you for trusting me with him, we will do our best to get good publicity for you =)
KOYNAURS cresteds had a terrific start of 2009.
Blandora maybe just maybe delivered 5 puppies on 9.1.09. & the proud father is our Mythos de gabritho.
We wish Bosse & the puppies future owners good luck with these darlings.
here we have Pixi
with hungry eyes......
she's probably been on the hard "after-x-mas-diet" for a week or so...
another "kodak-moment" catched by Pernilla on her x-mas exhausted darlings, BRIDGET & DIVA.
And for you who can't read Swedish, the paper says "all about weight loss"
I must ask the girls if i can borrow that paper since i'm overfed from all the x-mas food...
on DECEMBER 26th
we headed for moheda to train at an small club show. It was the premier for our EKRYDA TRISTAN & TALK ABOUT ME OF ROXY'S PRIDE. they debuted in puppy class, also CC'S EYES ON THE PRIZE was entered.
TRISTAN was the one to begin, he was the only dalmatian pup so he won =) After that he won the puppy group & after that he was ready for the BIS final that as usual started in the end of the day. The time inbetween he spent "singing" in his cage =)
this is his critic from judge jan herngren: "4½ MONTH VERY WELLBUILT MALE, BEAUTIFUL HEAD & EXPRESSION, VERY NICE IN PROPORTIONS, HEIGHT & LENGTH, GOOD TOPLINE, EXCELLENT SKELETON, GOOD IN ANGULATION IN FRONT & BACK, STANDS GOOD ON HIS LEGS, WELL "KEPT TOGHETHER" PAWS, EXCELLENT SPOTTED, MOVES WITH EXCELLENT FLOW & REACH, VERY PROMISING"
and now... tha moment we all been waiting for...
THE ENTER OF DA ROX-BOX... it feels important to tell that before entering the ring she never had had a collar & leach on. She's trained without it, and i was quite nervous she would pull the "emergency-brake" =) BUT SHE DIDN'T...
she enjoyed herself big time, jumping and gallopping to here and there. Again she reminded me of my Ginny.
this is her critic: "FEMININE GIRLPUPPY WITH A LOT OF EXPRESSION, PRIMA EXPRESSION WITH BEAUTIFUL DARK EYES, GOOD NECK, GOOD ANGULATION IN FRONT & BACK, GOOD BODYLENGHT, EXCELLENT BRISKET FOR AGE, VERY PLEASING IN COAT WITH PRIMA SKIN"
did she win... NO !!! she came second out of 2 puppygirls. That's of absolutley none importance, but what the judge said is wonderful !!! she actually said that rox had to much fun in the ring and probably forgot her brain at home... for me, that attitude she showed is to kill for in any breed, so who forgot to install her brain =)
directly after that it was AMADEUS turn, he did it ok and ended up as second in juniorclass with the following critic: "A MALE WITH A BEAUTIFUL HEAD WITH EXCELLENT EXPRESSION, EXCELLENT BITE, GOOD NECK, GOOD ANGULATION, MOVES WITH LIGHT STEPS, COAT ON GROWTH, EXCELLENT TEMPERAMENT, VERY NICE PRESENTED"
the following hours to the final we spent by eating ham-beetroth-x-mas-sandwich & listening to Tristan... who by the way snatched the BEST IN SHOW 4th PLACE....
am i proud.... HELL YEAH =)
the day before x-mas eve... GEMMA packed her blankets and favourite food (not pizza) & moved into the big city of our town.
It turned out that my son, who got his own appartment in november, missed her and wanted her there. and since GEM hates the cresteds it seemed like a good idea.
So off she went !! do i miss her ??? not as much as my husband... but she's happy and lies in sebastians doublebed infront of the 47 inch flatscreen and get fed with meatballs =)
...and there's not a crested in sight...
In other words, close to heaven =)
So now we have....
an AFGHAN in the house again... and thereby a big big hole in the wall-to-wall carpet in the hall..
meaning we have to put in a new one !!
I will never understand how they can figure out so much damage at that early stage in their life =)
Lluckily the hall is a very small one, so we came out with a small bill =)
anyway... he's a darling
10.12.08 I took AMETYST ROINGOLD + LOHAMRAS HENNESSY to the vet for EYE-check-up.
Wesley was checked with a clear from pra-result =) and Angus still had his last diagnos (glaskroppsframfall) but it hadn't got any worse =)
So this was 2 things to celebrate!!
and a big thank you to rebecca and frederik for bringing Angus and for taking so good care of him, it's worth millions to me...
ON A COOL FRIDAY
we went to skeppshult to pick Rox up.
The best ingrid & peter (from roxy's pride cresteds) in the world took her to sweden.
Thank you so much for that ! And thank you annika, Müsli's cresteds for helping out =)
so.. what is there to say about Rox then... she's the first pup since my Ginny to rock the world.
There's something about her that's fascinating, so cool, so full of ego & so cuddly.
the perfect mix, if you ask me =)"
CC's eyes on the prize, Amadeus, has been on his second show... 16.11 we was in mjölby for an inoff show to practice. Amadeus showed that he's learning and that gives great hope for the future.
He went BOB and that's not so much to say anything about since he was alone =) BUT to end up as GROUP-2 WINNER is really really good...
Judge Åke Cronander wrote this:
"very pleasing in all, wellshaped head, good expression, excellent neck, very good in body for age, good in angulation, moves very well in profile, a bit sloppy up and down, a bit dry in coat.
Brody is the TOP WINNING standard poodle in denmark. no 1 on the breed list for 2008, last year he was on second place.
I'm so proud of him. He will go below the radar during 2009, but when you least expect it, the show-king returns for some more winning =)
Another pic of PIXI in action...
here you can really see she's a true Cool Crowd's crested.
That attitude is unmistakable =)
during week 45 Noah will be wisited by BLANDORA MAYBE JUST MAYBE
from Koynaur's crested.
Hopefully we will get a few successful matings and then start counting days for their pups to arrive =).
This is a super interesting combination, since one of the best bloodlines from the states meets one of the best bloodlines from the uk..so if you're interested make contact with mr Koynaur himself, I'm sure i will =)
Extremly boring, but nothing you can do anything about... so it's just to wait for next time they're in heat and try again.
GEMMA will be mated to PIGGE again and GAIL with our WESLEY instead of CODY.
Now it's soon time for her arrival =)
On november 11th I will fly to Amsterdam to pick the little darling up. I'm trilled !!
I will stay in Amsterdam for 3 hours so there's plenty of time for STARBUCK'S COFFE =)
this lovely pic of SUMMER
was sent to me by Pernilla.
It's taken on a chinese crested meeting in their town. It's probably therefore she's wearing her best outfit =)
THANK YOU, Pernilla, It's heartwarming to see the little doll looking so smashing, but what about a few at Bridget-the-midget in her vinter collection =)
MY WEDDING PIC. (click image)
The most happiest day of my life and I can really truly recommend you all to get married in "sin city" Las Vegas, and the Elvis Presley preast is something you shouldn't miss.
For me this was a totaly perfect day, but it can't go wrong when you marry "simply the best"...
THOSE PICS ARRIVED
in my computor today....
It's CC´s DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT.
Her calling name is PIXI and she's owned by anki, my great great webmaster.
Thanks anki for the pics and she's so cute =)
21 OF SEPTEMBER
was the date for CC's EYES ON THE PRIZE "AMADEUS" to enter a show ring for the first time.
And he didn't do success but definately not disaster either.
He was very surpriced by the environment and didn't know were to look =) but he did it better and better, so he went BEST OF BREED PUPPY...
Next one out in the ring was KOYNAURS JACK OF ALL TRADES "KANE" who's temporary back at the kennel, his movement is really super...
He ended up as BEST MALE + BEST IN OPPOSIT SEX...
so... who got BEST OF BREED ??
The first place this day was reserved for our new princess TOURNAIS SALT N'PEPPAR "TROYHA"
It's a total blessing to show this dog, so smooth and feminine.
Her critic from judge Mirko Lundén: "a 2 year old very feminine girl with a beautiful expression, good proportions, beautiful eyes, well carried ears, very good in angulation, beautiful movements, very beautiful siluette, showes herselfs very good"
We are not at ours best yet, but with some training this doll will be someting to look out for =)
SHE'S HERE NOW...
A big welcome to our new princess, and A LOT of gratitude towards you, maria, that let our ways cross.
I will always be greatful for this opportunity to have and to show this high-class doll =)

me, my son & gem travelled 86 miles for her to be mated with the most gorgerous corso guy in sweden. What a boy he is, so masculine & filled with power, he impressed me BIG TIME =)
so thank you carina & allan for letting me use this super male.
ANGELDUST DE GABRITHO was mated to DKUCH COOL CROWD'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO so somewere around week 42 we're hoping for "hot-red" pups with "big time" attitude =)
This showday was a special one, it was the first time for me & Gem to enter an official show. She didn't disappoint me. She was so funny to show, not as hot as she can be though.She's in heat at the moment but i'm totaly satisfied with her performance. It didn't take her far but ..yeah whatever =)
23.3.08 we went to
National Show in Naestved, DENMARK
with 3 of our dogs.
First in the ring was CONNOR with the flappiest ears a chinese can have =) but judge Kamisato Hiroshi thougt different !!! So he won his class & got excellent.
Here is the critic 'HEAD IS GOOD, GOOD ANGULATION IN FRONT ANG REAR, VERY COMPACT BODY, TOPLINE IS STRAIGHT, MOVEMENT IS VERY GOOD.'
he ended up as 2nd best male.
SUMMER was next and she didn't like it this time either, she won her class though she freaked on the table =). Her critic was 'HEAD IS VERY GOOD, WELL ANGULATED IN FRONT AND REAR, STRAIGHT TOPLINE, GOOD MOVEMENT.
She finished the day by beeing 2nd best female.
..and now to BRODY the show king, he entered for the first time, the ring in champion class. wich he of course won =). In the ring this day we had a judge trainee that said BRODY was outstanding over all. She thought he was so very adaptable and focused on his precense in the ring =)...
The main judge liked him a lot as well and gave us the BOB rosette saying 'this was easy, con gratulations'...
BRODYS critic 'VERY GOOD QUALITY DOG, PLEASING HEAD, CORRECT PROPORTIONS, CORRECT DARK EYES, CORRECT BODY, MUZZLES VERY PLEASING, GOOD CHEST AND STRAIGHT FRONT, CORRECT SHOULDER ANGULATION, CORRECT LOIN, VERY GOOD BODY LENGTH, GOOD TAIL, MOVES SO VERY WELL FRONT AND BEHIND.
THE EYE LITTER HAS ARRIVED =)
Sunday 16th of mars Nancy gave birth to 5 black & white noisy pups
She's doing really well and is a very energetic and caring mom. 'Cody tha father' is more concerned about beeing forced to go outdoors since it's been snowing all night, than how his kids are doing...
go to pups page for more details.
SUPER CIAPKY LENERO
was tested for PRA with CLEAR result - 5.3.08
CC'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO was tested for PRA with CLEAR result - 5.3.08
mated Nancy before Angus (Cody's dad) got his eye diagnos I ended up in a difficult situation.
But after speaking with good friends, serious breeders and most important the vetrenarian who diagnosed Angus, I've decided to let Nancy keep her puppies.
So if everything goes as planned she will have them the week after easter.
Those puppies will be sold under a pet contract to pet homes.
at international show in odense 17.2
BRODY THE POODLE SHOWED HIMSELF TOWARDS 4 CHAMPIONTITLES...
He was as always in a splendid mood and did it as he use to... and that means getting a cac + a cacib + bos. HE HAS IN 6 WEEKS TAKEN 3 CAC'S + 1 CACIB IN 3 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES... if that's not a showdog, i don't know what is.
This is his critic from judge joop schepers:
NEARLY 3 YEAR OLD, VERY BEAUTYFUL WHITE DOG, VERY NICE FACE, DARK EYES WITH VERY LOVELY EXPRESSION, GOOD EARS, GOOD TEETH, PIGMENTATION IS VERY GOOD, VERY NICE NECK AND TOPLINE, COULD HAVE A BIT MORE ANGULATION IN FRONT, VERY NICE ANGULATION BEHIND, EXCELLENT COAT, MOVES WITH A LOT OF TEMPERAMENT, IS VERY FRIENDLY, SUPER SHOWING AND MOVING.
and again, tons of gratitude to his breeder, or as i now gonna start call her 'camilla the super-groomer' ... as usual you made him mega gorgeous =)
a little bit later the same day it was SUMMERS turn to enter the ring. She didn't enjoy her presence in the ring !!!
She totaly disapeared when she got up on the table... her legs were like jello and didn't hold her up =)... the very nice judge Kresten Scheel tried to get her standing but no... so after telling me she is in over all a very nice dog, with a lot of quality she got 2nd price... nothing to say about that, just practice, practice, practice...
ANGELDUST DE GABRITHO
was tested for PRA with a clear result - 20.2.08
SUCH DKUCH LOHAMRAS HENNESSY was tested for PRA with a clear result, remarks though about "glaskroppsframfall" + "främre y-söms katarakt" - 20.2.08
WESLEY HAS ARRIVED =)
.... and he's breath-taking-ultra-mega-gorgeous-beautiful.
Somehow a lot of people seam to think that as well, since mating enqueries is totaly filling my mail-box... but he's only 10 months old so he won't produce any pups in quite some time.
He will enter a few inoff shows before taking on the rest of the world =)
Lots of love to Ewa at kennel Roingold for selling him to Sweden...

DOES BRODY THE POODLE KNOW HOW TO SHOW !!!
Oh, yes indeed =) January 6th we was at 'MY DOG' in Gothenburg, this show was the SWEDISH WINNER SHOW -08.
There were 47 standard poodles entered and in male open class it was 8 entrys. Brody was to run last in the line up, so after one lap around the ring + individual judging + another 2 laps the judge came straight towards us and said YOU ARE no ONE !!!!
At a moment like this you hear drumrolls in your head.. it's amazing =) The joy and happiness is out of control.
The five to be placed in best male class was me & brody + 4 champion males... we ended up as 3rd best male WITH CAC... drumrolls again. This was his first swedish cac and i'm thrilled.
This is his critic 'GOOD HEAD & EXPRESSION, CORRECT BITE, EXCELLENT PROPORTIONS, GOOD NECK, TOPLINE & TAILSET, SUFFICIENT PIGMENTATION, A BIT NARROW IN FRONT, EXCELLENT REAR, VERY GOOD COAT, A SUPER MOVER...
A dear friend & crested breeder had a very succesful weekend as well, mrs Scafar and her gorgeous powder puff DKUCH INTUCH NUCH NV-06 SUCH PREFIX HOT GOSSIP did really really well. one BOB + one BOS + the SWEDISH WINNER TITLE -08...
This takes another drumroll =) Big & huge congrats to the two of you.
On december 26th we went to an inoff show in skara with COOL CROWD'S BOGUS & BLACKMAIL - RYAN and COOL CROWD'S CUTE CIMONO-NO-NO - SUMMER... NIGHTDREAM Z JASNE HVEZDY - CONNOR was brought along as company and social training. It was no fun to groom Ryan to perfection when the other two got 'car-sick' on his coat during the 10 mile trip =( my god, he looked like a combination of a poodle and the thing you clean the flor with when i took him out of the car. Spite this the judge wrote he had a wonderful coat on the critic !! So he ended up as BOS. The BOB winner was SUMMER... this was her second show, and she took the ring with the attitude ' i do this for a living' I was so pleased. She made me even more proud to place herself GROUP-R.
This little girl knows how to do it.
We are proud to present that we have Denmarks no 1 top winning Chinese crested 2007 in CHINETTA'S CHEAP & CHIC -NANCY- and Denmarks 2nd top winning standard poodle 2007 in TUSSILULL'S BUFF BEAUTY/BRODY. It feels absolutley marvellous to be handling two of our dogs to this brilliant results...
the 29-30 of september me and a friend atteded a class in Stockholm
with Bob Bailey and Kathy Sdoa. The topics were mostly about operant conditioning,
shaping and positive reinforcement. and my god, how interesting. Especially
Kathy Sdoa, what a woman, and so much knowledge... we were totaly packed
with info when we left. Words & frases like: "fixed action patterns",
"mechanical skill", "stimulus control", "behavioral
momentum", "luring", "prompting", "keep
going signal" is spinning our brains at the moment =)
Well att home late sunday evening i found, to my big joy, that Hazel is in heat and will be mated during week 41.
june the 17 it was time for brody to take another trip to denmark.
he was entered in intermedian class with 4 other dogs. he won his class
and was the only one that got ck. he got the following critic: EXCELLENT
SIZE, MASCULINE HEAD, EXCELLENT BODY PROPORTIONS, CORRECT MOVEMENT, EXCELLENT
TEMPERAMENT, VERY GOOD REACH IN FRONT, EXCELLENT TAILSET... but this wasn't
enough to place him in best male class =). but i think he was brilliant
and showed himself perfectly.
9th of june we went to vänersborg with cc's absolute hattori
hanzo and cc's cancel combat. and it was ups and downs =). this turned
out to be the hottest day in a very long time, 32 degrees warm and the
dogs were a bit taken by the heat. cody wasn't in a good mood and got
his first 2nd price.... what can i say !! cohen was the one that made
me proud this day. he was in puppy class toghether with 4 other male pups
and got second with hp. this is his critic: SEVEN MONTH OLD POWDER PUFF,
FULL OF SUBSTANCE, BEAUTIFUL HEAD, CORRECT EARS AND EXPRESSION, CORR BITE,
VERY GOOD NECK AND TOP LINE, EXCELLENT ANGULATIONS AND TAILSET, EXCELLENT
on the 12th of may we went to denmark with the same dog as last time. and unbelievably enough the story repeted it self. standard poodle TUSSILULL'S BUFF BEAUTY/ brody took his second CAC and BOS. SUPER CIAPKY LENERO/ justin gained a CAC and 3:d best male & last but not least CHINETTA'S CHEAP & CHICH/ nancy snatched her second CAC and finished the day by winning BOB. we didn't stay for the group finals this time either.
1.5 we went to an another inoff to practice. This time COOL CROWD'S CANCEL COMBAT / Cohen did a little better then a few days ago and went best male puppy and then BOS.
BUFF BEAUTY / Brody was as always in "show mood" and did what
he does better then many others...SHOWED
HIMSELF. he went BOB. to be honest i really didn't undarstand what this
judge wanted out of the entered dogs this day !! everything was wrong...
my poodle for example hadn't big ehough skin on the ears ??!! i'm quite
sure that none of my dogs will get a more lousy critic again... =)
GEMMA SHOW'S HERSELF TO BOB AND BIG-R
29.4 we went to an inoff show in skövde to see what gemma and cohen thougt of the dog-show-life. gem liked it a lot, and entered the ring with so much attitude that the judge asked "if it's ok to approach and touch her"... quite fun =). after squeezing her through he wrote this:
" VERY APPEALING BITCH, BEAUTIFUL HEAD & EXPRESSION, GOOD NECK, EXCELLENT BRISKET, GOOD BODY, NEATLY HANDELD, LOVELY MOVEMENTS,FANTASTIC TEMPERAMENT " do i need to add that i'm pleased ?? COOL CROWD'S CANCEL COMBAT / cohen was for the first time in a show ring, he was'nt mega thrilled to be there, but that just takes some training, his huge size is a bit more difficult to train away... he ended up as 2nd best male puppy.
We started the easter with some training on an inofficial show in Växjo. This was the first time out for COOL CROWD'S CUTE CIMONO-NO-NO/Summer, and she won puppy-bitch class and trotted of towards the bob-puppy win, good work on the first show and of course very promising. Next dog in the ring was SUPER CIAPKY LENERO/Justin, also a first-timer, he did pretty good and seemed to enjoy his presence in the ring. After him came CHINETTA'S CHEAP & CHIC/Nancy, she was on her best mood and showed really well. Well enough to be best female and bob =). We didn't stay for puppy or group final, they showed that they know how to "do it" and thats enough for one day. Thanks my little "EM" for beeing such a good help at this show.
On saturday we started our trip to Denmark. We had 3 dogs entered, and at this time i had no idea how extemely well they would do =). On sunday morning my gorgeous standard poodle was the one to start first. TUSSILULL'S BUFF BEAUTY/ Brody, went best male & BOB with CAC. wow !! What a good start. Then over to the crested's ring and Justin, he won junior class and ended up as 2nd best male with CAC, at this point i thougt this is to good to be true. Then came Nancy... she won junior class, best bitch with CAC and then... BOB... ta da !!! What a day, I'm so happy by the way my dogs show themselves, they're really something =). We had booked the boat home to early and didn't have time to stay for any finals. I think I had the biggest smile in a long time on my face when we travelled home. Thank you tobbe for fixing and driving us to this show.
- CHINETTA'S CAN TAKE A CHANCE / CLEAR
- LOHAMRAS HENNESSY / CLEAR
- MOCCIZ HAZELBURN / CLEAR
- COOL CROWD'S ABSOLUTE HATTORI HANZO / CLEAR
On march 11 we went to a small breed special show in Denmark, only for one reason... Cody could finish his champion title in denmark... AND HE DELIVERED, AS USUAL. he won open class and best male and by that he became show champion in denmark. He's the second dog out of my first litter to become a champion. Very satisfying =). He finished the day by wining BOB. He got a very good critic from judge Torbjörn Skaar. Little nancy was on the same show as well. We have been practicing how to show teeth since the last show and that was not a problem this time, if you were allowed to lay down while showing them !!! so we have an another thing to work on until next show.
On the 18th of february we went to international dog show in Odense - Denmark and he kicked ass pretty good. He won open class and ended up as best male with CAC and CACIB. This is his second show in Denmark and it was his second CAC as well, he seems to like that country. He got a very good critic from the judge Henrik Johansson, Sweden. our little Nancy, Chinetta's Cheap & Chic, did her first time out in the ring and went 2nd in junior class. She did it really well, except for showing her teeth =) that was not her idea of fun. so with her we know what the training will look like =).
This was obviously the winter... when i wasn't suppose to have puppies, both GAIL & GEMMA was empty.
this is not a dog related pic, but my absolute favourite...
