                             C.I.B./CZ CH/SK CH/RUS CH Eswood Lavender Leaf ''Laksi''

                                                               ...IN LOVING MEMORY...

Laksi was our foundation bitch who gave all her heart and a part of her name 'Lavender Leaf' to our kennel. Laksi was faithful and smart, she liked hiking, skiing and swimming with us. Together we traveled a lot by car and by boat. Laksi loved water, she was so happy travelling by ship or small boat. She was the best friend at every moment of our life. She is missed horribly by her family and friends worldwide... She left beautiful memories...She continues in her children and grandchildren...Her 19 puppies live, win and have offsprings in 9 countries of Europe, America and Asia. 


      The first purebred keeshond imported to Czech Republic in January 2009, the first purebred keeshond

who got the titles Czech Junior Champion (2010) and Czech Champion (2011)

More about Laksi here.


At the moment we have 2 females in the kennel and 4 co-owned males in the other homes.


C.I.B./CZ CH/SK CH/RUS CH Alpine Snowbell from Lavendermist meadow ''Coozie'' 

Born 26.12.2011. PHPT negative. 

International Champion (C.I.B.), Czech Champion, Slovakian Champion, Russian Champion, Champion of CMKU (CZ National Kennel Club - all breeds), Champion of Czech Spitz Club, National Winner.

Coozie is an outstanding show dog, at her 15 shows (12 International) she was the best female 13 times (twice she received RCACIB). She got her titles easily and in minimal time. She is very good in agility. Her health tests are excellent. But above all she is my heart dog. She is a kind, gentle, loving and sweet girl. Coozie never fails to surprise me with her beauty and temperament. Coozie wasn't in our breeding program but she raised her younger sister Talia, nephew Arthur and our podengo Maini.
