When I was in Stockholm earlier in December, I was thrilled to meet Sheriff’s livernosed son Kiiro (Sabaku Inus Chikako of Sheriff) again, and his sister Akira (Sabaku Inus Chokoreto of Sheriff) for the first time. See some more photos of Kiiro and Akira here. He has such a wonderful personality, and a superb mentality to go with it. And in addition, he is good looking also, and moves wonderfully. I can’t wait to see what the future has to hold for this wonderful boy, and I am so happy to see yet another stunning livernosed male after Sheriff! This litter gave a bunch of happy, playful and easy going dogs, and I am happy that also the x-ray results came back excellent, as well as the overall health.
This weekend we attended this years last show, and Ninja got to have her second start in puppy class. As she turned 6 months old on December 26, she got to start in 6-9 months puppy class. She became 2nd in the class, and do we need to say it was only 2 puppies entered in the class? 😉 Anyhow, she behaved perfect, stood like a statue while the judge was looking at her teeth and feeling over her, and thought everything was just funny. Do I need to say I am very proud of my little princess? 🙂 She is just legs right now, and are quite high in the rear. Not the prettiest age, so I am anxious to see how she will develop the next months! And I hope her head will grow into those big ears of her! 😉
After the puppy show we went to the dog club where we had a fire, ate hotdogs and had a “christmas gift field search” for the dogs. It was Ninja’s first time, and she was completely clueless what to do. My bad 😉 But Isi, despite never had done it before (my bad again…) as always thought fetching was funny. Sheriff got to stay in the car, because he was freezing on his paws. At home I had to take some new photos of my little pack, and I actually think this is the first photo I have of them together!
We had a very nice visit from Nixon (Wayosi Baby Can’t Drive) and his family last weekend, and I took the oportunity to take some photos of him. He is, just like his brother and sisters from our B-litter, a social, happy and kind dog and they all have similarities from both their mother and father. In january we are having a kennel get-together and I can’t wait to meet them all again.
Ninja and I packed our car and went to Stockholm to visit Ninja’s mother Maggie and her owner Hanna last weekend. We had a great weekend filled with wonderful dogs and people, and I can’t wait untill we meet them all again!
On friday we first met up with Ninja’s cousin Anzantra Grim Nansison “Grim” (Wayosi Anything But Ordinary and Anzantra Nansi Namibia) and his owner and breeder Helena. Such a wonderful looking male with the sweetest temper! Can’t wait to see how he develops! On the evening, Ninja’s sister Crazy and her lovely family came for a visit, and it was so lovely to see them again.
On saturday we first went to Stockholm International Show, and did a little shopping and got to watch all the lovely dogs in the ring. On the afternoon we went to the “dog islands” outside of the city together with Linda and her dogs Keaton (Djungelkattens K-Nineridged Keaton) and Brun (That’s Obvious Absolut The Best) and Ninja got to meet a lot of other dogs. In the beginning she was not so comfortable with all the strange and big dogs, but after a while she was all over the place 🙂 I made sure to take some stacked photos of Maggie, and I just love the way she have matured during the last year, and after her puppies. She looks lovely, well done Hanna!
On Sunday we went for some indoor obedience training before we headed home. I don’t have any photos from the training, because Ninja ate my cameras memory card the other day, with all the photos on it 😉 But luckily I had already saved the other photos taken that weekend, which can be seen HERE.
Our sweet Kiwi will have her third and last litter spring 2015, and we are looking forward to hopefully have the house filled with little Wayosi monsters again. Kiwi is 6,5 years old, and we have done a full health check up on her, prior to deciding if we were going to mate her again or not. She was found to be as healthy as can be, and we are happy to see that she is in a great condition after her two first litters. She is getting better and better with age, and she is still happy, playful and enjoys life to the fullest. At the time being she is flying to France with her co-owners, and are enjoying the french vineyards in her christmas holidays. We are hoping for some photo updates eventually 🙂 Information about the male will be published eventually, so stay tuned! We are very exited about this combo, and are hoping this will give us possibilities for the future also.
There have already been quite some interest in this combination, but we always welcome puppy buyers who fulfill our requirements and that will give a puppy from us the best life possible. Please contact us if you would like to know more about us or the planned litter, or would ask to be placed on our waiting list.
Nixon (Wayosi Baby Can’t Drive) and his owner Bente entered obedience bronze mark competition today, and they received 154,5 points of 180 with good points in all moments. This means that they gained Obedience bronze mark diploma (equivalent to Obedience class 0). Nixon is only 9 months old, and there are a lot of things happening in his body these days. But they made it anyhow, and I am so proud of them both and hope to see more of them in the obedience ring in the future! 🙂 Big congrats Bente, Nixon and family!
I have recieved some photos of several Wayosies, both small and large and I am happy to see that everyone is happy, healthy and being good companions for their owners. We are enjoying every day with Ninja, and especially Isi loves to have someone to play with, cuddle with and play tug of war with. Sheriff is still not sure if the whole puppy-thing is such a good idea, but some days he for a short second almost plays with her. So eventually I think he will be just as happy about Ninja, as he is about his little princess Isi 🙂 Børge and Ninja have completed puppy class, and she seems very promising as my new working ridgeback. But at this age environmental training is also extremely important, so we try to take her to the city, going by trains, relaxing at the buss terminal during rush hours etc. Just like I did with the other dogs when they were small. Looking good so far 🙂
We are proud to announce the safe arrival of our B-litter February 18, 2014. We have 5 wonderful puppies, 3 males and 2 females. One of the females are livernosed, the rest are blacknosed. All seems correct so far, and first check showed no dermoid sinus. The delivery was uncomplicated and took 4 hours. 4 of the puppies had birthweight around 500 grams, while the blacknosed female weighed only 250 gram. She seems quite strong, and we are giving her extra care and hope she will gain some more weight quickly. All pups have lovely colors and substance, and we are very exited to see them develop.
More than one time have I come home and been met by the most guilty looks and body language from my dogs. I found this video from YouTube hilarious, and I laugh loudly every time I see it. I also found some old photos of my biggest mischief Sheriff. Often the look gave him away before I saw the mess 😉
The other day I took some photos of Sheriff, and I am happy to see that he is aging with style! He is now 8 years and 7 months old, and still behaves like a young dog. I have a weak spot for that silly dog, and he is the only one of my dogs that have such control on me 😉 And for that I just love him dearly. I also took some new photos of our hairless airedale Isi, and both she and we loves her new haircut 😉 I took the liberty to steal a photo of Juno from Facebook, and I think it shows her personality very much. Silly little dog does every thing she know just to get a treat. And if it is to jump up on a small box were the paws nearly have space, so be it 🙂
I have really enjoyed the last weeks weather, with the perfect -5 °C and dry snow. The dogs have also enjoyed the wonderful weather, and especially Isi loves to be outside in the dry snow. Sheriff thinks it’s ok to go for walks, but I almost have to drag him by his collar to get him out to pee otherwise, in fear that I might lock him out for a while 😉 There are much focus on Kiwi these days, but Isi and Sheriff gets their share of pampering to 😉
I recieved a text message from my mother, complaining about the lack of photos and updates of Isi on the homepage 😉 Isi is always around us, and I have to admit I don’t often think about take photos of our little goofy and sweet Airedale-princess! Before christmas she looked rather like a little bear with her long coat, and during christmas holidays I trimmed here completely down, trimming also her mustache and leg hair, giving her the look of a little puppy. I love this look, making it much easier after runs in the forrest, and snow will not attach to her coat. So I intend to keep her like this for a while, even though trimming experts would turn in their graves…
I am happy to announce that Hektor will sire his first litter in 2014, at Kennel Anzantra in Sweden with the lovely female Anzantras Nansi Namibia. We are exited to see what Hektor and Nansi will produce, and I wish breeder Helena Sirén good luck with this litter. Thank you for your trust in Hektor 🙂
I recieved some lovely photos of Maggie and her friends last weekend in the snowy sandpit. It is one big happy family with Maggie and Härja being halfsisters and Disa being Härja’s aunt. Confused? We to sometimes 😉 See more photos here. Maggie is the self-appointed queen bee in this company, because just like her mother and father, Maggie thinks that the world centers around her 😉 And that’s why we all love her!
There haven’t been much updates on this page lately, and that is because we simply did not have much to say 😉 It’s been a boring Norwegian fall and winter, much rain and no weather for photos. I have had quite a lot to do at work, and could take 14 days Christmas Holidays with good conscience. Now we welcome the new year, and looking forward to many new doggie adventures in 2014.
With this we wish all of you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
