Results & Success


May 25th 2012 - One bitch puppy still looking for her loving family

The puppies are 7 weeks old today and ready to move to their new homes soons. They have been a delight! It is very interesting to follow their development day by day. They are their own little personalities already: you can see the different charasteristics of each puppy grow stronger every day. Their own website will be here: Q litter.

Due to cancellation we have bitch puppy available. She is looking for a home interested in the breed and possibly showing.

"Tämä on pikkukoira Pöpönen" - a children's book of a PON puppy called The Mop
The book tells about the first year of a little PON puppy called The Mop. The book is only available in Finnish at the moment.

May 16th 2012 - Paternity test results are in

As Kerttu's puppies were born out of a dual-sire mating (double the romance, lucky girl!) we had to collect dna samples for paternity tests before being able to register the litter. The local vet came to our home to take the samples and this is how it looked like:

The puppies were very calm and co-operative when taking the samples. Today we got the results which confirm that all the four puppies are sired by Ch Dumboss Astar.

May 12th 2012 - Junek in an Obedience Trial

April 6th 2012 – Kerttu's puppies are born!

Kerttu went in labour at 5 am. She gave birth to 2 males and 2 bitches. Kerttu did everything by herself, it was like looking at a nature document. :-)

A couple of hours old puppies: girl, boy, boy, girl

March 25th 2011 – Obedience trial with Diesel

Diesel spent 11 days in a dog hotel while the mistress was travelling. After that there were just 2 days to remind him about all the things he needs to know and remember in an obedience trial. This was our second time in Class 2. Luckily it went moderately well - we got a 1st prize result which means we can move on to Class 3! But that will wait for now - we have already gotten better success than I ever estimated! And we started going to Obedience trials just for fun and to have some motivation to practise!

See the video here!

March 3rd 2011 – Obedience trial with Diesel
We moved on to Class 2 just 3 weeks from passing Class 1. It was not quite enough time to teach Diesel the new exercises so we really are not ready for Class 2 yet.
We got a second prize result
with 153 pts (1st prize result of minimun of 160 pts is needed to move on to next class). However, I am quite satisfied as we got many high grades like 10 and 9.5! :-)
The exercises that are still "in progress" or new were the ones that were performed weakest in the trial - logically. I have already entered to the next trial which is just 3 weeks away - but the problem is that we go to an FRF training camp next week and after that I travel to Europe - and after returning home there are just 2 days time to practise with Diesel before the trial... Not the greatest plan!

Jan 14-15th 2012 – Pomppu in two dog shows in Tarto, Estonia
Great success for Pomppu once again! He was BOB both days and also Group 3! He got new titles: Estonian and Baltic Champion.
