12.10.2004 Worst nightmare and big dream coming true? ;)
What could be the worst nigthmare for person who's life is full of photographing? Maybe it could be the thing happened to us. When we were some days ago taking photos from dogs bred by us, we found your digital camera took photos with this quality:
Our camera was taking photos with strange green colour here and there, lightness was bad in those and when we were watching the original photo as big in our screen we saw also some strange lines in it. This all came to camera just suddenly and we do not know what happened.
So could there really be WORSE NIGHTMARE for photo maniac like we are than camera suddenly get broken just a WEEK before long expected Spaniel Club Main Show!??!??! Our feeling was more than depressed and angry...
But, as also the subject of this news tells, this all leaded us to our big dream coming true and we bought a new camera (we had planed this already, but planed to buy it for Christmas).
So in Spaniel Club main show we will take photos with Nikon D70 digital system camera. :))))))))
Most propably we will publish the first shots with new camera already before weekend shows, so watch up our updates ;)
2.10.2004 First official show result
Today first from dogs bred by us entered official show and got result. Wildomar's Addicted To You entered Oulu International show, where springers where judged by Dolores Dineen from Ireland. Result was from junior class quality prize "very good".

23.9.2004 New homepage
We have published our new homepage, please enjoy! :)
19.9.2004 A-litter had puppy meeting
A-litter had a puppy meeting in Somero Pitkäjärvi today. We were glad to see Manu, Ato, Aida, Ainu, Anet, Wilma and Oona (only Andy could not come).
First we groomed all puppies. Then was time to take photos and we have already added some to every dog's own page. We were very pleased to meet them all and find they all were developed good way from last time.
After photographing was time to go out. There was cloudy weather but not raining anyway, so quite nice to be in fresh air actually. Tiina and Jouko Huppunen kindly gave the "game bucks" to all puppies, with which all may train water retrieving by themselves (this is training for spaniel working ability test which this breed need for Finnish Champion title). All puppies could also make themselves familiar with rabbit smell one by one, because this smell they would meet again during the day.
After this was tested behaving after gun shot and when all acted normal after shot we did not need other one (shooter was Jouko Huppunen).
After this was time to walk to woods to do the blood tracks which breeders had done. Everyone had their own track and all did it just fine, even if there was first timers also.
Then was time to let these 10 months old puppies to play freely on our big yard. And it was such a speed there! ;) Same time we did something to eat and all owners could eat before going home. And of course we had also cups of coffee and enjoyed delicous pie Tiina had done.
Our big thanks to Tiina and Jouko Huppunen for all the work they did for this day and of course thanks also to all families of A-puppies for coming to our home and make this day perfect. We truly had wonderful day, let's take it again someday?! :)))
18.9.2004 Girls in match show
Vilma (Wildomar's Bric-A-Brac) entered a match show with us in Salo. As result was nicely fourth best from red puppies. Puppies were judged by Ritva Rantanen (kennel Carrier).

31.8.2004 IESSC homepage published
Again is published one homepage designed by us, this time at www.iessc.org.
This homepage belongs to organization called "International English Springer Spaniel Symposium Committee" (IESSC), which is head organization arranging for example the International ESS Symposiums around the world. Finnish representative in committee is Dr. Tarja Hovila (Adamant's).
Let's hope that someday in the future people in deciding position about our breed will take positive attitude and we would get this Symposium also to Finland. We entered 2004 Symposium in Sweden and must admit this event including the Club Show arranged on other day, was really opening our minds and eyes. Club Show offered true base for comparison with own breeding work and in Symposium we got lots of valuable information from experienced breed specialists.
29.8.2004 Emma BOB CC CACIB and BIG-2!!
Melverly Violetta "Emma" was nicely again in Estonia BOB and got CC and CACIB. In group Emma was placed nicely as second. Breed judge was Annaliisa Heikkinen (Finland) and group was judged by Moa Persson (Sweden). Group winner was gorgeous labrador retriever who ended as 2nd best in show.
In this show was not given any CC or CACIB to males, so no dog was best of opposite sex. Multi Champion and Winner Adamant's Superman anyhow entered veteran class and was BOB-veteran and BIS1-veteran. Adamant's Sweet Dreams was nicely BOB- and BIS4-puppy. Our congratulations!
Emma travelled to Estonia with her co-owner Tarja Hovila (Adamant's) and entered also brace class with Adamant's Superman (also owned by Mrs. Hovila). And result was nothing else than BOB-brace and finally BEST IN SHOW -brace! Our congratulations to Tarja for this lovely brace and thanks for taking also Emma with to this trip. :)

15.8.2004 More about our Ronneby trip
Now is finally time to tell you more about our Ronneby trip which we did at the end of July. We were travelling with our friends from Åland, Roni's godparents and their children. We had rented a cabin quite near to show place from place called Blomstergården.
Show was arranged in beautiful garden with water areas and beautiful gardens. I have never seen show place like this in Finland.... maybe some day.... ;)
Our Emma did quite nice job in shows when thinking there was lots of competition, you may read more from Emma's results. In Sweden there is lots more English springer spaniels than here in Finland but we personally also think the quality is higher in average. So you never can go there just to "get the win". ;)
Mia Humell's and Christian Häger's Burchfield Cpt Moonlight got three CC's from four shows and became this way Swedish Show Champion. Our congratulations!
Our son Roni did fine in Sweden with us. We remember now only one bigger crying and that was caused by this very hot weather in show place (and it stopped when took all extra clothes away and he was only with diaper, hehe).
Weather was just lovely all the time. In shows it was near 30 degrees (celcius) every day. There parents got red arms and boy got red cheaks easily, but we do not complain, because in Finland was very hard rains during the time we were on this holiday, and all raining stopped when we came home. ;)

3.1.2004 New Year with new tricks ;)
We thought best way to start this news page is to tell what we expect from the year 2004. Maybe the most important thing is now this little baby in Sanna's stomach, which we expect to be born within a month. We are sure this baby will keep us quite busy the whole year and also the following years. ;)
With doggy things we of course also expect some nice things to happen. A-puppies will move still this month to their new homes. We are very excited to see them developing and we also will arrange some kind of puppy meeting this summer or autumn (maybe together with our B-puppies?). So Julia will hopefully have puppies with Edwin, the super nice tempered male living with us right now. Mating will happen during January and puppies hopefully be whelped in March then. Propably we will not be very active in show rings before summer. Maybe will visit some, but only carefully selected ones. ;) And also we have planed to travel also abroad for shows.
So it is likely the start of the year will be more normal family living. This will be quite a change to latest years, but we are sure this will also be very unforgettable time in our lives. ;)
