Leon, Juba and Aragorn had their debute in puppyshows today. They all behaved like pro’s, and the one thing I loved the most was their wagging tails and positiv attitude towards everything and everyone! Aragorn was 2.Best Male Puppy, Leon Best Male Puppy, BOB and BIG2, and Juba Best Female Puppy and BOS. Pictures of Aragorn here, Leon here, and Juba here.

We attended the Norwegian Winner Show this weekend, and are really happy with our results!
Sheriff was awarded Excellent, CQ, 4th winner in Champion Class and ended up as 4th Best Male! The judge really liked him, and smiled everytime she looked at him. She loved his expression and allertness and that he is a really fit 6,5-year-old.

Kiwi was also awarded Excellent with CQ, but was unplaced in the big champion-bitch class. Considering that there are only 5 months since she gave birth to 10 puppies, and her tits and belly haven’t drawn up properly, I was very surpised and happy for this result! 🙂 Breed entry 63.

Isi was expertly handled by my friend Julie Wilberg, and they looked smashing together. Isi was awarded Very Good and the judge commented that her coat was to short and she needed more leg-hairs. The body-coat is my mistake, but the leg-hairs are not existing! 😉 But I am happy with our blue ribbon, it proves Isi has both beaty and brains! 🙂

Our little darling KANI “Wayosi Achy Breaky Heart” have now moved to his new home! His new owners are “The Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted” and if he turns out the way we hope, he will be taken into training as a GUIDE-DOG in a year or two! I am off course very proud and humbled, but I know Kani has a long way in front of him! ♥ But that little puppy is absolutely amazing, so my gut feeling are very good! 🙂

The puppies are 11 weeks old today, can’t believe how fast the time goes by! I have updated each puppies album with some photos! Kaizer, Kani, Leon, Enya,Aragorn, Juba, Maggie, Juno and Hektor.

The puppies are doing great in their new homes, and their owners says they are cutest when sleeping… They are all little monsters when awake, just as a Wayosi-puppy should be! 🙂 They are all happy, social, unafraid, curious, playful and quick learners. Just as I hoped with this combination! Let’s hope it stays that way! 😉

I am happy to announce our PLANNED B-LITTER summer 2012 with Airedaleterrier from “good old” workinglines! Our fantastic little girl D’Isolde von de Drift “Isi” will be mated with a male from solid workinglines (name to be published when it’s finally decided).  Are you looking for an healthy Airedaleterrier with excellent mentality with all the right qualities to be a successful working-dog, as well as the perfect family-dog, don hesitate to contact us!

Sheriff will sire 2 litters during winter/spring 2011/2012, with the german female Fahari and the norwegian girl Iza. We have high hopes for these to wonderful combinations, and if possible we want to co-own a female from each litter if the perfect owners comes along. Read more here if you could be interested in co-owning a dog with us!

And then they were 1… Juba, Aragorn, Maggie and Varga have also left us, and Kani will leave us eventually, hopefully making us really really proud in a couple of years.. More info about that will come when the time is right.

I haven gotten wonderful feedback from all the puppy-buyers, and I am so happy that the puppies are just the way I hoped for when planning this litter!

I want to say THANK YOU to all our puppy-buyers for taking such good care of your little Wayosi-puppy!
   

:: 5 September
And then they were 5… Juno and Leon left on Saturday, Hektor and Enya on Sunday and Kaizer today. I have gotten feedbacks that the puppies have settled down nicely, and are happy and active all day long, just as a Wayosi-puppy should! 🙂

We still have 2 puppies for sale. Miss Black and Mister Orange is still searching for a new home! These to puppies will be perfect for working! They have a lovely outgoing and playful attitude, and are probably the most active puppies in this litter. With the right owners I think they have all the right qualities to be excellent working-  or hunting-dogs! Please contact us if interested!
   

:: 3 September
The first 2 puppies are leaving today, Miss White and Mister Red, while Mister Blue is leaving on Sunday and Miss Brown on Monday. The rest are leaving the next weekend. It is kind of sad, but on the other hand I see that the world isn’t large enough for the puppies anymore, and they need to move to their new homes now.

I have updated the A-litters photogallery with a lot of new photos, including fresh stacked photos. See more here. I don’t think the stacked photos was the best we could do, but they were so crazy for the food, almost ate my fingers and couldn’t stay properly, so I just wanted to be quickly finished! 🙂

I have also updated the puppyblog.

Our puppies have done their PAT test today (Puppy Aptitude Test) and I am so proud! They all did such a wonderful test, showing that they are happy, outgoing playful puppies without any fear what so ever! Both judge and audience was very impressed! The puppies did better than I had ever dared to wish for! As I see it, these puppies have the best assumptions to be great dogs, and now it is up to their new owners to use the puppies mentally qualities to their advantage.

The puppies have now gotten their names, and everyone have gotten their own page. Take a look here. All the puppies haven’t gotten their call-names yet, therefore just an “X”. The puppies have gotten their pedigree names after song-titles on A with a positive meaning. So our litters will have song-title theme.

We will co-own Miss Purple – Wayosi A Kind Of Magic – aka Maggie with Hanna in Sweden, and we will also co-own Miss Green – Wayosi All That Jazz (l) – aka Juba when the right owners comes along eventually. 

We still have 2 puppies for sale. Miss Black and Mister Orange is still searching for a new home! These to puppies will be perfect for working! They have a lovely outgoing and playful attitude, and are probably the most active puppies in this litter. With the right owners I think they have all the right qualities to be excellent working-  or hunting-dogs! Please contact us if interested!

No Dermoid Sinus (1st check 9/7-2011). 2 blacknosed and 2 livernosed correct females and 1 livernosed female with a tiny tiny kink in tail. 1 blacknosed and 4 livernosed correct males, whereas 1 livernosed male deadborn. 1 livernosed male with single crown. Minimum white. This actually gives us 73 % livernosed in this litter! I had never imagined there would be that many of those special livers! But I am so happy that they are here!

Kiwi and her puppies are doing well, and Kiwi is such a gentle and good mum! The puppies are very vital and healthy, and makes a lot of sound when they are not satisfied!

Day 59 today, and the birth could start any day now! Kiwi is restless from time to time, and mostly sleeps. She has lost her appetite, and the only way to make her eat a little bit is to give her RC Starter mixed with Vom & Hundemat. Her temperature is stabile, and she has startet to get milk in her nipples. The puppies are still moving around, but there can’t be much space in her belly right now! Kiwi has gotten swollen in her back legs, and blood samples and veterinaries sais nothing is wrong, and it is probably because of the big weight and lower blood circulation to her legs. Let’s hope they are right! Some more photos here.

   
:: 3 July
Day 55 today, and we have spent the day outside trimming Isi’s coat. Kiwi found it very comfortable to lay down on Isi’s coat on the ground. We are now entering the very last week, and we start monitoring Kiwi at all time. Some new pictures of the dogs here.

The vet have been notified that we maybe will call them during next weekend, and good friends is standing by if I need help!

Sheriff’s smiling and happy happy son Loui (Dahidos Mibirisi av Hilandra) has been to the chiropractor today, and just as we thought she found an unalignement / subluxation in his neck and in the pelvic / hip. Loui has never shown signs of pain, but we’ve wondered whether there has been something since he has seemed a little stiff sometimes. We assume that he has been running / playing and got hurt when he was 5-6 months old, and gone with this tightness in his joints for 1.5 years. Wonder how many dogs that get tightness in their joints here and there but never get treatment? Had they only been able to talk! ♥Unfortunately Loui was x-rayed with HD C on one side when he was 12 months, and I guess that this unalignement of his joints could have some cause in that. The other hip was a perfect A. He will be x-rayed again after his treatment is finished, to se if he has improved or gotten worse in his hip.
