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!

- 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:(

- 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). One is a half brother to Europe Top Winning collie – UK CH, UK TOP DOG 2018, CIB, MULTI CH One Extraordinary Blu di Cambiano -Piaf!
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). Sia is a litter sister to her more famous siblings – Lani (CH,jBISS Beyond Limits), Kai (CH Bejewelled Sky), Neel (Danish jCH Born to Impress) and Tara (jCH Black Swan). 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!
