In golden memories Snowtime´s Sendoh 23.11.2004 - 27.1.2017


We have japanese spitz puppies! Born 25.1.2017. 3 girls and 1 boy. More info in here (only in Finnish at this moment, but feel free to ask more if interested).
Photos at the gallery.

In memoriam...Lovely Sendo (CIB Snowtime´s Sendoh) 2004 - 2017.


We did a holiday road trip in Europe, saw wonderfull National Parks and old cities!
You can find some photos at gallery.
We also participated at ASCA trials in Sweden and in Holland.
It is wonderfull to see dogs and people worldwide. You can also learn so much.
Wonderful people, animals and places.
We participated mainly at cattle runs, because Rio and Riff had finished ducks and Riff also sheep.
We don´t have cattle at home, this year we have seen them only in trials, so very little.
Sheriff had also an injury in July, which he recovered well, but it took some time.
He has been kicked by a sheep or a cow couple of times before, and he never cared a bit. He is a tough boy.
This time it was pretty bad and it took a while to recover. We also train other things, mainly S&R, so i didn´t had high expectations about the trials.
It was more like getting to see aussies and people, have fun and learn more. Both Rio and Riff do have experience about animals and herding so why not also give it a try.
At first we needed to work it out, get things together. But then it started to work out, so we have two new ASCA Working Trial Champions now;
WTCH BH PAIM-E Justus Rio Bravo and WTCH BH PAIM-E Snowtime´s Deputy Sheriff.
We will continue learning, but i was happy with both of them. Also Gila (Blackbird) did nice job, she did 4 runs and qualified 3; STDd, STDc 1st leg and OTDs 1st leg.

Rio  (Justus Rio Bravo) passed S&R annual trial in September

Minni (Hirume Go) is new Fin & Lv & Ltu & Rus Champion, congrats Henna!!

Sulo (Kuroshio) at Match show with Veera, congrats!

Mila (Yamaguruma) debuted at rally, good job Pihla!

Onni (Tundra), 8 months old, debuted at Nose Work unofficial trial (because he is bit too young for official trial), he did good job. Congtrats Outi! 

Ginko (Ichou Go) passed agility 1st class, got CAC and advanced to 2nd class. She and Hanna-Leena also did nice run at 2nd class with 5 and 1st place, congrats!
