We had small vacation. Traveled by car to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Romania. Worth of all that driving.

More than happy! Morgan being already 9 years this was her last gamble due the fact that age is creeping in… And as Austin carries too big black markings it has not been easy with him either. Now they both can retire and become true sofa champions!

Posted inShow news|Comments Off on Two new C.I.B titles
Due recently discovered PRA cases in Sweden and Norway (all rough collie males sharing some same relatives in their pedigrees) I found it reasonable to have my older ones eye checked.
Millwill’s Another Kiss, nearly 10 yrs, no sign of PRA / vitreous degeneration Hawkfield’s It Matters to Me, 8 yrs, no sign of PRA Hawkfield’s What’s It to You, 7 yrs, no sign of PRA Hawkfield’s Makes Me Wonder, 7 yrs, no sign of PRA Hawkfield’s Finders Keepers Losers Weepers, nearly 6 yrs, no sign of PRA
Austin and Pallo’s litter brother Jedi was also eye checked soon after my bunch Hawkfield’s Where I Come From, no sign of PRA
Elvis, Hawkfield’s Return to Sender to Joshren at Daliyhaa was checked 05/2022, no sign of PRA, and I decided that to be recent enough for now.
Who ever reads this, please take your collies to an official eye check. More information is needed.
Updated litters and statistics, as there has been new health test results since I have last done something to the stat file, as well as latest litter was missing from the litter page. (They will turn 9 months next week, so maybe now was a time.)
First of all, we have puppies! Elvis x Freya puppies were born 24.7. 3 males, 2 females. Already 5 weeks by now. Some males still available.
Then, Elvis came home (for a visit) in April. Had his health tests done, as well as DNA tests. Results can be found at his own page. He have even been shown, Best of Breed with CAC which made him Fi Ch. (Being already Ie Ch, he only needed one.)
Finn and Ingrid had their DNA tests done also, results are in and can be found at their pages.
28.8. Finnish Collie Club’s Main Specialty show was held. Hot and long day. Elvis and Austin both got Excl from Champion class, nothing else and Morgan got VG in her very first Veteran class. But Finn, after 3 years since his last show, did well. Won Open class, came 2nd Best Male and got CAC. Good boy.
Austin and Agnes decided to have puppies, I was left out of this meeting and did not even receive memo… So accidental mating and not planned by me. But all together combination that could have been made what so ever. Health tested as well as mental tested parents so all well that ends well.
