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. I think her story can be a true inspiration to all animal lovers and shows us that even special needs animals can bring you so much joy and happines ♥
FIRST SHOW IN 2020
First show day in 2020 and first after the lock down! It was so great to spend a wonderful sunny day with my beloved collies and to catch up with some of my wonderful friends!
::: NDS Varaždin, Croatia
Our handsome boy Neel (Born to Impress) was his joyful, friendly self, loving all the attention and cuddles and he won ex with rCC from the champion class.
The youngest members of our Windy Lands show team, Mai (Marked my Moonlight) and Melody (Midnight Melody), had the time of their lives, meeting so many new doggies and people and getting so many compliments and cuddles! They were great in a ring, happy, playful and so beautiful! Each were BOS puppy and they both experienced the big ring, as in Croatia BOS from both genders goes into the BIS ring.
Our singletos Mea (E litter) and Neo (F litter) were 3 years old and our beautiful Kai’s daughter Daisy was 1 year old.
Our I litter was 2 years old – happy birthday to Inna, Iggy, izzy and Issa in Slovenia, Inis in Sweden and Iris Cassie in UK!
Our C litter celebrated their 5th birthday! Happy birthday to our Pai and her sisters Lori in Slovenia, Ria in Italy and Rhea in Switzerland!
Our D litter was 4 years old. Happy birthday to our superstars Eros and Lina, both parents to 2 wonderful litters! And also to their siblings – Coco, Naja, Lin and Star in heaven ♥
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 ♥♥♥
M LITTER IS 9 WEEKS OLD

With the help of some truly amazing people who have been donating some funds to us, we can now continue with her treatments. Even though she is a special need puppy, she is quite easy to live with and she is so happy, loving and cuddly. She has brough so much sunshine into our lives. She is an amazing little dog, so grateful for all the help and so ful of love. She loves people and other dogs. She is housebroken. She loves her food and to learn some little tricks.

NEEL’s FIRST PUPPIES
Neel had a date with a very sweet young girl Lina (Until You love me of the Holy Mountain) and the result are 3 beautiful trikolors (2 boys and one girl) and 3 oustanding blue merles (2 girls and 1 boy).
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!

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.

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!

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!
OUR COLLIES SUCCESSFUL IN CROATIA!
Fantastic news from Croatia!
Glam n Gorgeous of the Windy Lands – Gill is truly living up to her name! At the Zadar spring shows, she won 5 CC, 2 CACIB, 2 BOS and one rCACIB! So Gill has now added one more title to her name – CROATIAN ADULT CHAMPION!
Hit The Road Jack of the Windy Lands – Jack won 3 CCs at Zadar and 1 CC at NDS Samobor and also he is now a CROATIAN CHAMPION!
Great news also from NDS Koprivnica, Croatia! Our stunning girl Lina – CH Dream in Blue of the Windy Lands (UK CH, CIB, UK TOP COLLIE 2018 One Extraordinary Blu Di Cambiano x CH, UK imp. Gemheid Light of my Life) won ex1 and CC under the judge Marko Ljutic! I am very proud as his opinion means a lot to me. Congrats to our dear Lina and her owner Sandra Cerjak.

- ANOTHER SAD EXPERIENCE:(
We mated our sweet Pai with an outstanding young boy Ziggy. But sadly, our Pai was carrying just one puppy! We tried importing chilled semen for the first time in my breeding career and everything worked out great – Pai is very fertile, having a big litter last year, Ziggy sired 10 puppies in his latest litter, the semen arrived in excellent quality and I am very grateful to Ziggy’s owner Cathy Sonntag for all the help with this plan as well as Pai’c co-owners for monitoring progesterone carefully and taking her to our best repro vet. There was just one obstacle – Fedex delivered the semen 1 day too late due to some strike in France! So when we finally got the semen, it was already 5 days after the ovulation for Pai and the result was just one puppy. As it usually happens with just one baby, Pai didn’t start the labour on her own and cesarian was needed. Sadly, we lost our puppy boy during the operation. To say we are heartbroken is an understatement. Breeding is really hard and it has been especially difficult for us in the last few months. We really hope sun will start shining soon for us as it’s been a very dark season for so long now:(

Lani is my special girl from my most important litter – my B litter.

- J LITTER IS BORN
On the 5th of February, Sia started whelping…i was so excited and couldn’t wait to see what was she hiding. But instead of a wonderful end of a pregnancy, the night turned into a disaster. She gave me 3 most perfect blue babies, but only one girl survived. First boy was breached and the other girl had Meconium aspiration syndrome. There was nothing I could do to save them. The remaining girl is the most amazing gorgeous one, but due to the very difficult birth, she is very weak. I am doing everything in my power to save her. She is a fighter, but we both need your prayers and good thoughts. In moments like this, I find it very hard to continue being a breeder. I love puppies, it is the greatest passion in my life, but when things like this happen, I don’t know if I am strong enough for this. Please, think about us ♥ I named the little sunhine girl Joy ♥
- WE ARE EXPECTING PUPPIES
Our sweet and beautiful Sia is confirmed pregnant to the stunning Italian boy One!
The father to be is the handsome One – CIB, ITALIAN J CH, CH Top Collie ’16, Enci Winner ’17 Splendidio Blu Di Cambiano (Cold Case Vom Haus Rukopf x UK CH Hitparade Blu di Cambiano).

The mum to be in our darling Sia – Black Pearl of the Windy Lands (CH Hot N Spicy of the Holy Mountain x CH A Blue Pearl of the Holy Mountain).

We are hoping for some wonderful puppies in 1 months time ♥

- SKY IS 10 YEAR OLD
Happy 10th birthday to a very special girl – my Sky. A whole new journey started when she entered my world all these years ago and she has completely changed my life. She has been my loving and loyal companion, she intruduced me to a world of showing and breeding and I have met so many wonderful friends these years in fellow breeders, exibitors and puppy owners.
Sky is a Slovenian Champion, a Croatian Champion, a Slovenian Veteran Champion, 2 times Slovenian veteran Club winner and 2 times bis3 veteran club winner. Besides shows we’ve trained Agility, Frisbee and even some sheepwork when she was younger and I had more time.
But Sky’s biggest value is that of a superb brood bitch that she has proven to be. Sky is the mother of my A and B litters, granny to my C, E, F, G and H litters and great granny to my I litter ♥ She is in great shape and I hope she stays with us for many more healthy years!
