Oli – Windy Lands Olympias was shown in a junior class and she did wonderfully, being happy and charming in a ring despite any previous ring socialization due to Covid restrictions. She won JUNIOR CC and JUNIOR BOB.
Mea – Endless Love of the Windy Lands was shown today for the first time after her last litter and got a CC from CH class and has now become a new SLOVENIAN CHAMPION.
Fame – Darsanian Destination Fame at Windy Lands and her brother Dancer – Darsanian Dance to the Top at Windy Lands (children of our Lina – CH Dream in Blue of the Windy Lands) were both shown in junior class and both became SLOVENIAN JUNIOR CHAMPIONS.

With that he has earned the title ‘NEW SLOVENE HOPE’Thank you to all the owners and friends for all the help and for the great time we spent together, despite the rain and storms:) What a wonderful come back for Windy Lands team
Q LITTER IS 3 MONTHS OLD ♥
NEO’S FIRST LITTER – WINDY LANDS R LITTER
I am so excited to share a truly wonderful news with you!
Our stunning boy Neo (Flash N Thundershine of the Windy Lands), in my eyes the most beautiful blue I have ever bred, has become a daddy for the first time! The mummy is a black beauty Lina, owned by my good friend Aljaž Tratnik.
After the ultrasound a month ago we were expecting three puppies…but Lina prepared an enormous surprise for us as she delivered not 3, but !!8!! puppies! And another surprise – all 8 are boys! I never had an all-boys litter before! But they are absolutely gorgeous, 5 are little perfect blue daddy’s boys and 3 are little trikolor momma’s boys.
So my special girl Lani is now a granny for the first time ♥
Q LITTER IS BORN ♥
Easter Bunny has been especially generous this yeas as he brough us 5 marvelous little babies this Easter
Proud mummy is my heartgirl Lani (multi Ch Beyond Limits of the Windy Lands) who proved to be the most amazing mum for the third time now. She is the easiest to mate, whelp and raise puppies, she is my true treasure and I am forever thankful to have her in my life
The wonderful daddy is Herceg, a truly beautiful and loving Hungarian male – Escoliar D’Oro Dinamit. I don’t like only him, but I truly admire his fantastic pedigree in which you can find the great World Youth 01′ & World winner 03′ & vice EU CH 04′ Rineweld Awantgarde at Sheewena, the handsome Ch. Nyitramenti Zinedine Zidane and the superb Brilyn Chance Again at Lynnswed. Thank you dear Krisztina Laszlo for all the help and for making this mating possible despite the strick Corona lockdowns and thank you my good friend Katarina Petrič for all the help and support.
All 5 puppies were born very big and healthy and they are gaining beautifully already.
JOY’S SECOND BIRTHDAY AND 1ST ANNIVERSARY IN HER NEW HOME
I can’t believe it’s already been a year since our most special puppy of all, our Joy, went to her new home to live with her amazing mummy Vanja. A year with Joy was the most difficult year in my breeding career, but also the most amazing…I have learn so much from her and I have received so much love from her that it made it all worth it. I will be forever grateful to Vanja for taking a really loving care of her and accepting her just the way she is. Joy has much better conditions with her that she did with me and that is why I entrusted her to Vanja, even though it was the hardest and most heartbreaking decision of my life. Joy is now a puppy sitter to all the puppies Vanja takes in (she works with a shelter AniMa – Animals Matter) I still miss her and I am very happy Vanja tells me about her, sends me pictures and lets me visit her. She also brought her on holidays with me last year Joy was two years old in the beginning on February, so I also want to wish her a very happy birthday and hope she has a lot of happy, healthy years ahead of her in her super home!
East Anglian Ca Online Christmas show
Since we weren’t able to show our young hopes this year we decided to take part in East Anglian Ca Online Christmas show, mostly as they were raising money for a good cause and also because I admire the judges that were judging – Rainer Juhani Vuorinen (bitches), Tomas Rohlin (males) and John Blake (bob, bis).
The star of the show was our puppy hope Dancer (Darsanian Dance to the Top at Windy Lands), bred by Sandra Cerjak and owned by Jana Ferfolja and me. He won junior class, male puppy, best rough puppy, res best rough male, res BEST OF BREED and ended in style winning also BEST IN SHOW PUPPY and res BEST IN SHOW! Wow wow wow! That really made my day, especially because he was judged by the judges I trully admire. I can only hope he does so well at real shows! Thank you Thomas Rohlin for very lovely critiques!
Denis Kogovšek and me entered also our young hope Mai (Marked by Moonlight) and he won the mid limit dog class.
Katarina Petrič entered our Eros (Dashing Raven Knight) and he was 3rd in champion class.
We entered also the two sisters from our M litter (Winston x Mea) they both did very well, Melody – Midnight Melody of the Windy Lands was 3rd Novice Bitch and our rising star Maya – Majestic Amber Flame of the Windy Lands was 1st Junior Bitch! Melody is co-owned and co-bred by Denis Kogovšek and Maya in owned by Neža Rejc.
WELCOME LITTE PERLI ♥
A few months ago I was scrolling through facebook and I came across some photos of a wonderful blue merle collie that I was sure it was my Sky. My first thought was – who came here and took these photos of my girl without me knowing? Later I realised it wasn’t Sky but it was her exact male copy! I immediately wrote to the owner VM Maria and realised the wonderful collie in the pictures was a boy called Blue Marine. I checked the pedigree and was surprised they had no immediate relatives. Very soon I was on the way to Hungary to meet this blue wonder in person and I loved also his calm and loving personality. My dream was to mix Sky’s line with this handsome boy. Denis Kogovšek came with me to see him and I warmed him up to the idea of using Blue Marine for his beauty Mea’s next litter.
Today Denis Kogovšek and me have the most wonderful news that we would like to share with you. On a very special date – 11.11. 2020, the youngest member of the Windy Lands family – little Perli joined us! Denis and I were a bit nervous for the last month, because we knew that there was only one puppy inside Mea and there was a slightly higher possibility of complications, but fortunately everything ended well and little Perli was born fast and safely. Thank you to our super vet Nina Krašna for all the support and advice along the way! Perli is a big, strong and agile girl with an incredibly beautiful blue merle colour. We were both secretly hoping Mea would be hiding a little blue copy of her great granny – my precious foundation girl Sky (A Blue Pearl) and when that actually happened, we were both on cloud nine! We knew we wanted to name the little one in Sky’s honour. So today we are introducing you Windy Lands Precious Pearl Blue – Perli.
Welcome, little Perli, in these difficult times you bring us joy and happiness

New addition – Lunar Lakes Primadonna
Welcome to Windy Lands, gorgeous Primadonna – Tanna 10 years ago, at EDS Celje, Slovenia, I spotted the most outstanding male in a rough collie junior class. He was flying in the ring with his handler, Inessa. I later learnt his name was Lunar Lakes Big Ben and he became EU JUNIOR WINNER that day! Ben is a son of one of the most beautiful blue merle Wicani dogs of all times – Wicani Dance Thru the Mist. All these times I tried to either use Ben or get some of his offsprings. And finally, here she is – a long awaited daughter of this amazing male! She has been with us for a few months now and we had first official photoshoot with her today! Tanna is a born shown star, just like her daddy!Tanna lives with my good friend Kia Seničar (owner of our Neel). She is everything I have dream of all these years, and more! Thank you Kia for being part of this dream come true and thank you Lydia and Inessa for entrusting this precious girl to us!

SKY’s 12th BIRTHDAY
Today is a very special day – our QUEEN Sky is celebrating her 12th birthday!12 years ago, after loosing my first collie Gaja, I was looking for a companion and a potential agility partner. I didn’t want to change the breed because collies are just irreplaceable, but I did want to change the colour, so the new puppy would mean a fresh start and help me overcome my sadness over loosing Gaja. I was lucky that there was the most perfect blue girl in Neda’s very first litter. I named her A Blue Pearl, as she was the most amazing blue colour. I didn’t plan shows and breeding and we did star with training agility, Frisbee, obedience and sheepdogs as Sky is a truly smart collie. But since she was also incredibly pretty, we tried a few shows and I was hooked:) Sky has achieved quite a few champions titles in her life and she has given me two most amazing litter, our A and B litters. She is now a mother, granny, great granny and great great granny to many wonderful collies all around the world. She still loves to catch ball and going on walks with us. She always warmly welcomes all the puppies that grow up at Windy Lands and is still a great mother to her two daughters Lia and Lani, who live with us.I am hoping there are still many healthy years in front of us! Elder dogs are so special, there is a unique sweetness and gentleness in them! I love you to the moon and back, my wonderful girl
WINDY LANDS O LITTER
O litter was our first all sable litter and our most numerous litter! During the heavy corona lockdown, we mated our Robin (H litter) to a handsome Hungarian boy Tony (Nyitramenti Yanichar Sulatan). We have 8 boys and one special girl Oli, who will hopefully be used in my breeding. Oli and boys Oto, Orrie, Ossi, Othello, Otto and Finn stayed in Slovenia, Odi went to Austria and Charm to Norway. This litter is especially special as they were raised with co owners and also with me at Windy Lands. They all have truly fabulous characters.

NEW ADDITIONS TO WINDY LANDS
Welcome to Slovenia, Fame and Dancer!
The wonderful siblings joined our kennel and we have very high hopes for them. They are children of my beloved Lina (CH Dream in Blue of the Windy Lands) and out of a superb young male Bond – Carluke Top Secret. Thank you to my dear friend Sandra Cerjak, their breeder, for letting them come to us. They will be living in co own with my good friends, not far away.
N litter is our first double Windy litter, as we mated Gea (G litter) and Eros (D litter).There are 5 beautiful puppies. All puppies have developed amazingly and all have found really loving homes. Three went abroad – Noel to Portugal (to Candida Velho, kennel Margens do Cavado), Nash to Lithuania and Nia to Belgium. Two puppies stayed in Slovenia, Nal and Noa. Noa will hopefully have Windy Lands puppies in a few years.
Thank you Gea and Eros for these 5 little treasures!
ARTICLE ABOUT OUR SPECIAL PUPPY JOY ♥
So proud of this article about our incredible little girl Joy, that is a joint work of me and Joy’s mummy Vanja Hojs. It was published today in a magazine ‘Four paws’ by Nataša Bešter.

JOY FOUND A LOVING HOME!
A bitter sweet day for me…my very special girl Joy left for her new home. I have spent a wonderful year with her even if it was also the hardest year of my life. It is amazing how you grow to love such a special being..she paid me back everything I’ve done for her a million times with her unconditional love! Not many people believed in her but I am so grateful for the few that have and that have supported us on this journey. I am also so thankful for the person who saw the beauty in Joy and decided to adopt her. She now lives with a young girl Vanja with a huge heart, who also has a little kitten in a wheelchair. Joy and her cat Murat connected imediately! She also has 3 small female dogs to play with and they all accepted her nicely!
I miss her terribly but I know she can be better taken care of there. She also doesn’t live too far, so I can go and visit her ♥
Joy has trully taught me to never give up in life! Such a valuable lesson and such an incredible experience.
Be happy and healthy my princess, and have the best time in your new home ♥♥♥

NEEL’s FIRST PUPPIES

M LITTER OF THE WINDY LANDS
On a very special date, Friday 13th, under the Ful Moon, our Magical M litter was born. Mea and Winston gave us 6 gorgeous puppies, 5 girls and one boy. One girl was sadly stuck in a birth canal for too long and didn’t make it. Sleep tight, our little Maggie ♥ But the rest of the gang and mum Mea are doing great. Mea is a wonderful, attentive and loving mum and their co owner Denis is a wonderful first time breeder.

L LITTER BABIES MOVING INTO THEIR NEW HOMES
With Lian leaving today, our little ‘L litter’ adventure ended. It was such a wonderful period of my life, raising these puppies. All 4 puppies – Lum, Leo, Lian and Lainie are so special to me, being the children of my heart girl Lani, and she really loved them too, playing with them like she was one of them:) Lainie and Lian had been with me the longest, so I got truly attached to them. I will visit my sweety Lainie as much possible, but Lian went to a faraway Sweden to live with Mia Hansson. It was so hard letting him go, but I know he will be loved, adored and spoiled by his new mummy and his big collie brother Kevin ♥ He is already in his new home and Mia tells me he is a brave, happy and relaxed puppy 🙂 I would like to thank my dear friend Kia Senicar for taking him there, she really made sure he was comfortable the whole way and he came out of the box with a wagging tail ♥
Even if I am exhausted – raising this litter with addition of Enya for a little while and Joy, who takes quite a lot of my time, I miss them terribly and the house feels so empty now. Lani is totally lost as well, searching for them…and Joy is crying for her playmate. We will need a while to adjust to a new rhytm. But beautiful memories will stay with us forever and I will surely visit all of them as much as I can.
Be happy, my little pearls, and thank you for these wonderful months together ♥
EXPECTER M LITTER OF THE WINDY LANDS
I am thrilled to announce that our M litter is on its way! The pregnancy of our young girl Mea – CH Endless Love of the Windy Lands has been confirmed and we are beyond happy as this mating was one crazy ride – literally!
Mea’s co-owner Denis Kogovšek and me have been admiring Winston for years and we both felt he would complete our sweet girl wonderfully. Since he lives so far away (1500 km), we planned to import chilled semen. But Mea had other plans – it seems she was determined to meet the handsome boy in person. She was ready to be mated on Sunday and no courier was willing to deliver us semen over the weekend. So Mea left Denis no choice but to sit in a car (I have to mention here that he was sick with high fever that weekend!) and take a looong ride towards Poland (I wasn’t able to go as I had a house ful of puppies at home). But this would never be possible if it weren’t for Winny’s amazing owner Gabriela Grubba who did everything in her power to help us! Gabriela, we will be forever grateful for your help and hope someday we can repay you for everything you did!
Denis, me and Gabriela can’t wait to see what Mea is hiding. We shall meet the little ones in about one month time. This litter will be born at Denis’s under my supervision and mentorship.

G LITTER IS 2 YEARS OLD
Can’t believe our G litter is already 2 years old! I honestly feel like they were born just a few months ago! But they are already all grown up and some of them are or are going to be parents themselves soon!
This really is my most successful litter so far! A little before they were born, their mum Tara’s co-owner checked ‘the cards’ and they told him – Tara won’t have many puppies in her life (she only had that one litter), but those she will have will be of superb quality. And he was right! All 6 puppies are in breeding homes, 3 of them are champions, 2 are junior champions and one is half way through towards his championship. Our golden star Gaia is also vice junior Euro winner and her sister, our princess Gill is multi junior ch, multi ch, cro club winner ’18 and already has quite a few cacibs and bobs under her hat. All 6 also have healthy hips.
Happy birthday, my dear babies, I am so happy I get to see most of you often as you don’t live too far! Hope your owners are spoiling you rotten for your birthday:)
SKY IS 11 YEARS OLD
It was a very special day, 11 years ago…On this day, my most wonderful Blue Pearl Sky was born! I had been waiting her for months and I was thrilled when I received the news. On one way, it seems like yesterday, on another, it seems like a lifetime away. We have achieved so much in these last 11 years. Sky has competed in agility, trained Frisbee and sheepdogs, got me into the world of shows and breeding. Even tough preferring sports to shows, she has achieved quite a few CH titles and important wins. She was the most wonderful mother to two special litters, my first two ever litters (A and B). She is a granny to my C, E, F, G, H, J, L litters and great granny to out I litter.
She is still happy and healthy, loves going on walks and hikes with us and enjoys playing with her ball and Frisbee. She was a late bloomer, but look at her at 11 years – a True Beauty! She is also a super grandma to our puppies, guarding them and protecting them, loving them and teaching them manners.
Sky, you have changed my life for better. Hope I can make you happy for many more healthy years!
Happy birthday to her brothers Dreamy, Zorro and Osty and sister Toffee and sending love to her amazing sister Glory in heaven ♥

DERBY WINNER IN CELJE
Back from the Derby Winner Celje (Slovenia) weekend of shows. Really exhausted as I was driving back home everyday to take care of my pups..but I spent a really lovely time with some of my dear friends and our collie owners.
Even if it was such a long and at times stressful weekend, my girls did their best and made me so happy with their achievements! Our Robin – Honey n Spice of the Windy Lands won the Club winner title at the special show under a very nice and friendly judge Tadej Nagode. I really appeciated such nice and gentle (towards the dogs) judging! Our golden beauty Gea – Glorious Autumn Flame of the Windy Lands finished her Slovenian championship title with 4 cc!
I am especially proud of them because these girls live as pets at my friends and they are not shown much, so not really used to the show ring and not as trained and other show dogs. I also do all the grooming and handling myself, so these results are the fruit of honest and hard work.
Thank you to all my friends for all the support during the weekend ♥
GAIA passing the CAE1 behaviour test in Italy
Our super star Gaia – jCH Gaia Earth Godess of the Windy Lands passed the CAE1 behaviour test with flying colours, she got 100 out of 100 points:) Bog congrats to her owner Alberto Celestini and thank you for testing. She is a realy dream – beautiful, healthy and with amazing character ♥

Sucessful show weekend for Windy Lands collies!
Let’s start with our big show star CH Born to Impress of the Windy Lands – our wonderful silver jewel Neel. He had a very busy weekend!
First he went with Mark Peter Zoran and Leja Šinkovec to a faraway Mostar (Bosnia) where he won 3x CC 2x CACIB and 1x BEST OF BREED under the judges Vojislav Al Daghistani, Denis Kuzelj and Zdravko Pranić Brižankić! He did not only finish his Bosnian championship, but also opened his Bosnian grand championship (needs just one last CC for that!) Thank you so much Mark for showing him for us (as I have to stay home with my puppies).You are such an amazing and dear friend to me and I am so grateful I can always count on you!
Today I showed him at NDS Opatija, Croatia and he won his 2nd Croatian CC under the Slovenian judge Maja Sušec.
In between all these shows, he even found time to squeeze in a hot date with a very nice young lady ♥ So we are hoping for some mini-Neels in 2 months time!:)
Our big star of the weekend was the gorgeous Gill – who I chose just the perfect name for – Glam N Gorgeous of the Windy Lands:)
Gill finished her second adult title in Mostar – CH BiH! She won 3CCs, 2 CACIBs, 2 BOBs and made us extremely proud by winning also BEST OF GROUP #2 and BEST OF GROUP #3 in quality competition. Way to go, Gill and Mark, you once again proved what an amazing team you are!
Here she is, in all her glory at 23 months, pictured by her owner Mark Peter Zoran 😍
Also Gills’ brother, the handsome and sweet boy Amor – CH Galaxy Guardian of the Windy Lands, whose pet name truly describes his sweet character well, was shown at NDS Opatija (Croatia), and despite dropping all his coat, won his last CC to finish his CROATIAN CHAMPIONSHIP!! Thank you to the very nice Slovenian judge Maja Susec. He is the 4th of the 6 siblings to finish a championship and the other 2 are on their way as well. What a litter that is proving to be (Stigu x Tara).
Amor had a date with a very nice girl a few weeks ago as well and we are patiently waiting to see if we were successful:)
Welcome to Slovenia, little ENYA ♥
We welcome to Slovenia the new member of our Windy Lands family – coming from Italy is little Enya – Olwyn K Exquisite Caprice for Windy Lands ♥
I have been admiring her stunning mum Crystal – cib, ch Runnerway I Am Aqua (Ch. Milas Ashes And Snow x Ch. Sammen’s Queen Of Clubs) ever since I saw her on a show many years ago and that day I said to myself: ‘One day I want her puppy’. When her owner Lada Kostioutchenko contacted me about using our Prince – Gallant Night Prince of the Windy Lands (cib, ch Skabona Oriental Style x jch Black Swan of the Windy Lands) , I was thrilled! Crystal spent 2 weeks with me and I got to know her wonderful nature, she is so calm, loving and has a bomb proof temperament. I was praying that the mating was successful! And when the ultrasound confirmed it, I told Lada I would like a triko daughter and she agreed ♥
So here she is, this little precious girl Enya, so much like her mum in character and body shape with a touch of her dad in her eyes – a perfect mix of both!
She lives with a wonderful family nearby, so hopefully I will get to see her often and we will have a litter with her in a few years!
L LITTER OF THE WINDY LANDS
Four little treasures born at Windy Lands…our long awaited L litter! Thank you sweet, handsome Ben for leaving these little miracles behind, your spirit will live in them forever ♥
Thank you also to my heartgirl Lani, who brough sunshine back at Windy Lands and after a long and dark period put a smile on my face again! Lani is not only perfect in a show ring and a super life companion, but also the most amazing and caring mum ♥
Thank you Andreja Velepec for letting me use your special boy, may he run freely and happily over the rainbow ♥ And thank you my dear friend Katarina for this lovely montage, you made magic once again!
Here there are, two tricolour boys, one blue boy and one tri girl ♥♥♥♥ A small litter, but extra precious:)

AFTERHERO HESPEROS FOR WINDY LANDS
(C.I.B, CH Dashing Raven Knight of the Windy Lands x Uait Sibod Vivian Moonlace)
♥ New member of our Windy Lands family ♥
Max is the sweetest, cutest, most adorable puppy boy and a true son of his wonderful parents ♥ When I first saw his mum Eira a few years ago at my friend Katalin I knew I want her puppy someday. And when her fiancee became our handsome boy Eros, I was even more convinced I want a baby from this litter.
Thank you so so much, my dear friend Katalin Tóth, for letting him come to Windy Lands! Max now lives with my good friend Katja at the Slovenian coast and will be show by me, starting next year. We are all thrilled by the arrival of this super boy (and his sister Senna, who lives with Katarina Petrič and her Aydeen collies) ♥

WINDY COLLIES SUCCESSFUL AT EDS AUSTRIA, 2019
I am back from the EDS in Austria when our Windy Lands show duo showed beautifully for their owners! It was such a joy watching them from outside the ring! In a very strong competition of quality collies, Eros (CH Dashing Raven Knight of the Windy Lands) finished 5th in a class of open males and Gill (CH Glam n Gorgeous of the Windy Lands) 3rd in a class of inter females! I am so incredibly proud! Heartfelt congrats to their owners/ handlers Katarina Petričand Mark Peter Zoran, such sucess means even much more when the owners show their dogs themselves and are trully enjoying in a ring with them ❤❤❤
Next day, at Austria winner show, my homebred boy Gal – jch Golden Oriental Sun of the Windy Lands (CIB, CH Skabona Oriental Style x jCH Black Swan of the Windy Lands) was ex2, rCC under the Italian judge Fabrizio La Rocca. Gal is owned and loved by my dear friend Milada Jarošová. But the big star of the day was his kennel mate Flash – CH Carnoustie’s Record Breaker (CIB, CH Absolute Dynamite of the Windy Lands x CH Carnoustie’s Solitaire) – the son of my homebred boy Damon, who won ex1, CAC, CACIB, AUSTRIAN WINNER 2019 and finally BEST OF BREED! There were 67 collies entered at the show! Gal and Flash’s granny Sky is sending both of her grandsons tons of kisses! Hugest congrats to Milada Jarošová as well as Flash’s breeder, Sussi Roos. So well deserved!
MEA SUCCESSFUL AT IDS ROGLA
One more successful show for our fantastic mover Mea – Endless Love of the Windy Lands (CIB, CH Marvalan the Rainmaker x multi CH A Sweet Lullaby of the Windy Lands). She was shown at IDS Rogla, Slovenia, by her owner Denis Kogovšek and she won a strong class of truly quality girls with a CC and was second best bitch with rCACIB under the judge Srečko Kukić. Mea is now a junior champion of 2 countries and she has already finished also 2 adult championships, always handled by her owner Denis. I am so proud of you guys! Mea will now have a break from the shows to hopefully attend to her maternal duties.
We are planning a very exciting litter with her in a few months! For all the info, pm me.
PRINCE SUCCESSFUL AT IDS UMAG
Prince – Gallant Night Prince of the Windy Lands attended his second show, IDS Umag and he was ex1, CC. He is now half – way through towards his Croatian title. Since he lost all his coat after the show we are now taking a little break and will continue showing him in Autumn.
VISITING GAL IN SLOVAKIA
We spent a wonderful day in Slovakia with my dear friend Milada. I was so happy to see our handsome boy Gal (jCH Golden Oriental Sun of the Windy Lands) again as well as our Damon (CIB, CH Absolute Dynamite of the Windy Lands)’s son Flash. Joy went with us, of course:) Thank you Milada for your amazing hospitality and for taking a really fantastic care of Gal.
Gal later attended IDS Zakopane, Poland, where he won ex1, CC and his first CACIB. Big congrats to our sweet boy!
What a wonderful weekend spent in Italy! First a very informative and interesting seminar on breeding, taught by the famous Irokon collie breeder Johanna Ruottinen from Finland. It was so nice to meet some breeders and collie owners I previously only followed on facebook. Later a very lovely dinner with Johanna, Cecilia Walter, Andrea Grilli and his sister Giulia Grilli and their sweet collie boy Johnny in the lovely city of Monza. Thank you guys for the amazing company! So much collie talk throughout the night, I loved it!!!! And the next day, a visit of Lada Kostioutchenko‘ s new place by the Lake ‘Maggiore’ (what a dreamy land!!!) and an enjoyable lunch with her, Emanuele Del Roccolo, their son, Laura Calcagno and Lucio Rocco. A special treat was seeing Kai’s puppies too ♥ Thank you everybody for these unforgettable two days and to my love, Rok, it was so nice to share these moments with you and our special baby Joy♥
MEA – ENDLESS LOVE OF THE WINDY LANDS SHOW SUCCESS AND 3RD BIRTHDAY
Our great mover Mea – jCH Endless Love of the Windy Lands (CIB, CH, jCH Marvalan The Rainmaker X CH A Sweet Lullaby of the Windy Lands) was successful at IDS Varadžin,Under a rather strickt judge Ruskovaara Elena from Finland she won her class with a CC and res CACIB and got a very lovely description.
Later she was shown at IDS Umag and won a CC, CACIB and BEST BITCH. With this result she fullfilled the conditions to become a Croatian Beauty Champion!
Big congrats to her owner Denis who has never had a show dog before and is doing such a wonderful job with Mea! He learned to groom her, show her and photograph her! Such wins mean even so much more when owners show the dogs by themselves and improve their presentation with every show!
NEO (F litter) IS 2 YEARS OLD
2 years ago on that day, there was a terrible storm with Flash and Lightning…and during that storm, a very special baby was born – my Lani’s one and only baby boy – Neo (Flash n Thundershine of the Windy Lands). He was by far the pretties baby I have ever bred here (now he has to share that place with our young baby Joy:) ) and he grew up into a stunning, handsome male with the most loving and gentle nature! Happy birthday, our darling boy, I am sure your mummy Daša is spoiling you rotten today! ♥
KAI’S FIRST PUPPIES
I have woken up to a really wonderful news from Italy! Our handsome boy Kai (CH Bejewelled Sky of the Windy Lands) became a dad to 6 wonderful trikolor babies at Olwyn K Collies (Lada Kostioutchenko ). The proud mummy is Evita – CH Andante Andante Not Looking Back (multiCH Steadwyn Blue Legend x Wicani Enchanted Feather). We are a little bit surprised the whole bunch is black, but they make it up for the lack of blue with really super jet black colours and wonderful big white collars ♥ This litter is almost a miracle, as we did the mating extremely late, when progesterone was alread 80! We are lucky Kai has very strong and fast swimmers:) Mum and babies are doing really well! Big congrats to my dear friend Lada from the proud grannies – me and Kai’s co owner Gordana!
Two of the puppies came to live in Slovenia.
Olwyn K Da Vinci – Archi now lives with family Pevec in Ivančna Gorica.
Little beauty Daisy – Olwyn K Dew Point lives with family Zgonc in Cerknica. Daisy is a new member of Windy Lands family as she is co-owned with me and will hopefully have puppies under our kennel when she grows up!
Daisy is cea free and genetically carrier and we are hoping we can finally reintroduce this gene into our breeding.
Daisy will live with a family Zgonc and will be shown and bred by me.
She combines so many wonderful lines – Wicani, Steadwyn, Corydon, Van M and Silver Dream. She is a sweet and brave little girl and we instantly fell in love with her cuteness!
