Our kennel in 2015
2015 belongs to the history now. It was a significant year for our young
tiny home-based kennel 'Lavendermist Meadow'. Laksi's first
''Alpine''-litter turned 4 years in December, the second
''Blessed''-litter turned 2 years in November. On July 10th the third
litter was whelped: 2 males and a female. Those 19 puppies are my pride
and my everyday concern.
Today I take a look back and remember the main accomplishments of Laksi and her kids in 2015.
Laksi (C.I.B./ CH Eswood Lavender Leaf) is retired from breeding. Her
third litter was the last and I thank her for her great job she has done
for the kennel and for the breed. In 2015 she got a title 'Champion of
Czech Spitz Club' based on show results of her lifetime. She is 7 years
old and I plan some more shows for her as well as agility. We began her
agility training in October and during 3 months of 2015 she mastered
almost all obstacles.
My Coozie (C.I.B./ CH Alpine Snowbell from
Lavendermist Meadow) came back to the show ring in October after 18
months interval and during one weekend finished her Slovakian
championship. She added to her list of show results 2xCACIB, BOB and
BOS. In November 2015 on the results of only two show years Coozie got a
title 'Champion of Czech Spitz Club'. She had almost twice as many
points as a female dog needs to obtain the title. In July Coozie began
her agility training and 6 months later I can say that I am proud of her
progress. We will continue and I hope for passing some tests in spring.
World Dog Show 2015 was lucky for Tina and Reddy.
NJW Alpine Violett from Lavendermist Meadow ''Tina'' got Excellent 4 in
the open class. JCH Blessed to dare from Lavendermist Meadow ''Reddy''
got Exc.1 in Intermediate class, he was 19 months old. Both with their
owners-handlers Vivi Vigdal and Chantal Rossi. Reddy also received Exc.1 and ResCAC at the Club Show at WDS, he was the youngest and left behind 5 elder dogs.
Reddy made us proud many times. In March he became Junior champion and
in September finished his Italian championship. He was multiBOB, BOG2
and at last Best of Group at the National show and BOG at the Int.Show
in Slovenia! He is on his way to Interchampion title.
CH Blessed to
Conquer from Lavendermist Meadow ''Martin'' in 2015 became Champion of
Kazakhstan and Champion of Russia. Multi BOB, Multi BIG, BIS-2 at the
National Show... And the greatest accomplishment in November: Best in
Show at the International Show in Astana (capital of Kazakhstan). Martin
wasn't even 2 years old! I must thank his owner-handler Anna Lee for this fantastic win!
CH Blessed to Amaze from Lavendermist Meadow ''Olly'' was successful to finish his Croatian championship in summer.
Blessed to hope from Lavendermist Meadow ''Ray'' (co-owned by Ruthann Seibert
and me) had a few successful shows where he was WD and ResWD and was
major pointed. Hopefully with his 13 points Ray will finish American
In Sweden the girls Bibi and Ada (Blessed
Honeybee and Blessed Butterfly from Lavendermist meadow) received
excellent critique of the judges and some significant results at the
shows. Ada also was successful in rally (with diploma) and continues
Our main ''agility star'' Zia (Blessed Blossom
from Lavendermist Meadow) lives in the USA. At her age of only 2 years
Zia has 5 titles: IAC, TG-I, TN-I, IJC and O-IAC and 255 lifetime
points. It always was my dream to see some of my puppies in agility
competitions. Zia has made a huge progress been trained by her owner Cynthia Ernat.
I am proud of another ''agility personality'' - Alpine Aster from Lavendermist Meadow ''Havel'' and his humans Joanna
and Bill. They are tireless in training: at the classes and in their
big yard equipped with all main obstacles. I thank them and look forward
to seeing Havel's results in competition in 2016.
youngest puppies are our hope. We'll hear about them soon. Baby Grim
(Crystal Spring from Lavendermist Meadow) who lives in the USA has
already been to his first show for 4-6 m.o. puppies. In November he was 4
months only but in the competition with the elder dogs he received BOB
and BIG-2! Now I cannot wait to see him and my girl Talia (Crystal
Dewdrop from Lavendermist meadow) in agility. They seem to be created
for it! I also think about a few shows for Talia in 2016 as well as for
A few words about Laksi’s grandchildren. 8 puppies sired
by AmCH Alpine Poppy from Lavendermist Meadow were born in February in
Canada (Chantalle Carroll).
They already have their first success in the rings. Beaukees First Full
Moon ‘’Remus’’ became Canadian Champion in November at just 8 months
I would like to thank all families caring of my puppies with
love and comprehension. I have never been focused on the idea of show
career or agility competitions for each puppy. Those who win confirm the
correctness and high standard of my breeding program with their
accomplishments. But most of all I am happy that all our dogs are
beautiful, healthy, joyful, loving and devoted to their humans.
begins with very good news: Reddy got two CACIB, was 2x BOB and BOG-2
at two Int. shows in Italy. We hope for a happy and successful year for
