Closing up not best of the years.

Some bright points, but last half was coloured with sadness.

Hoping next year to be bit more bright.

Closing up 2009...

Well, I must admit that our main achievement in 2009 was having puppies.

I want to thank John R Walsh, kennel Yandamar, in Ireland for everything he did as well

in Finland Satu & Jari (kennel Clingstones), Kaarina (kennel Downmoore) and

Päivi (Piraatin) for their support and comfort when ever I needed it.

And of course Karen (kennel Shep's) deserves my deepest gratitude for letting me

have Nina here. Plans have been changed many times but still Karen has never doubted

my plans. So my friends, THANK YOU! With out you, I would be lost.


Despite of the joy of having puppies, the year has not been kind for us but hopefully

this only makes us stronger and we will have better years ahead us.


I want to wish Happy New Year  2010 to all of my friends and may the

the year be kind to you all.


Best Wishes,
