We wish you merry Christmas and a happy, fascinating, joyful and successful New year 2011! Have a lot of fun with your four-legged friends and try to spend as much time as possible with them. They will pay you back a thousand times-without words. And you will just simply know, you mean them everything in this world. Their always wagging tail when you come home, their warm look, infinite loyalty and their undying devotion. Make sure they will feel loved in this holidays too...

And ::HERE:: you can read our story about Christmas and gifts. We really had a lot of fun!


Few more days and all the puppies will be in their new homes. Gaia went to Italy, Gandalf to Germany and Grof Patoche to Belgium. Genja and Grant are leaving next weekend. Genja is flying to Finland and Grant is travelling to Netherlands. All are going to families and will be family dogs at first, but if they will be all suitable for breeding and will pass all the tests, we will meet them in breeding too. I was trying to find appropriate owners for Grant here in Slovenia (as I wanted to keep at least one puppy from this litter here), unfortunately without success. I had a little bit more strict expectations from new owners this year and moreover, I didn't want to send him in a kennel life. He has so extraordinary character and is really "will to please" dog, so I am sure he will bring a lot of joy to his new owners abroad. Good luck my litte ones and I hope we meet again soon!!! More about our adventures in last weeks can be read ::HERE::.

Puppies from our D-litter celebrated their 2nd birthday on Tuesday. Happy birthday my big sweeties-I wish you long, healthy and happy life with your owners! Kisses to all of you. And few days ago we got our first snow. Nuba, Diva and puppy gang were really happy about it. Well, puppies were a little bit surprised by this strange white, cold, soft thing at first, but now they are running and playing in it with big pleasure. My friend Nina made few excellent photos of our dogs (when it only started to snow), which are attached below. Many thanks to her!

And we have another wonderful news. Diva was on X-rays and she is completly free from all sceleton diseases. Her results are HD A, ED 0, OCD free. I am very happy about this.


Puppies become very curious and they are exploring new things every day. Tasting our hands and trousers with their sharp teeth, playing and chasing each other, barking, growling and fighting, "attacking" the plush toys and chewing different things becomes their daily fun. Visitors are coming into our house almost every day, so puppies are exposed to wide variety of people. We are introducing different sounds and objects every day and soon we will take them to new places (car driving). We are adding first induvidual photos in standing position ::HERE::. And more new pictures of our puppies are ::HERE::. I hope you will like them.


Our sweeties are every day bigger and more naughty. Now they can run around very good, so we had to make their sleeping room larger and more interesting. House full of balls, tunnels, balance toy and thousands of another different toys are now there to make them busy. I think this is very important for their mental and physical development. I would love to thank to friend Ole again, who send us a balance toy long way from Denmark. I think puppies will love that present!

New pictures of little ones can be found ::HERE:: and ::HERE::. Enjoy!


Puppies are 18 days old today and they were out for the first time yesterday. It was beautiful autumn day, quiet warm and sun comes through the clouds here and there-so perfect for our sweeties to be introduced into real world. Eyes are opened already and they will get their first teeth soon. If they were more crawling till now, first steps have been made these days (of course they need some more days to walk properly). Nuba was keeping a watchful eye on them, but puppies didn't care much about change of environment and after their meal by Nuba they fall asleep... More pictures of the puppies are found ::HERE::, new induvidual photos ::HERE::.

And here some new photos of Nuba and Diva, taken during these sunny autumn days. On the last picture you can see Val and Kal, halfbrothers from first and second litter. Nice guys!

Your always wagging tail, special smile on your face and thousands of foolish tricks, made life so relaxed and easy. I met so many wonderful people because of you! You are one such dog I'm thankful to have in my life.
