October 24, 2018 - Better late than never

The more days come the more I have the feeling days are just too short. The truth is I simply can't manage to do everything I'd like to in a day, so here comes the update, even though not very much up to date. Hope to improve in the future. Too much has happened so I pointed out just the most important things.

August 4, 2018

We went to Budišov nad Budišovjou to watch a competion and meet Zepp's kids Bambula and Temi. We got to meet some new friends from Spain there, possibly interested in a puppy.

August 10,2018

We headed to Jeseniky and stayed until 13. Another great extended weekend, as always.

August 18 and 19, 2018

We spent in Budišov nad Budišovkou again, only this time at a seminar lead by Eliane Verboven.

August 25 and 26, 2018

jsme trávili v Tiché, teda tam jsem byl sám společně s Mončou a Vendy, jeli jsme se podívat na Continental (Mistrovství kontinentální Evropy v pasení). Byla to moc pěkná podívaná a příjemný víkend v úžasné společnosti. Psi odpočívali doma.

 

September 5, 2018

Zepp is a grandfather :) Temi (Bestseller Lovelenia) is mother.

September 15 and 16, 2018

These were the days when the Czech herding championship took place. I think it was a very fine event. Me and Zepp even competed but didn't succeed much. However, we passed the exam so a start in a higher level is fast approaching.

Also, on every Sunday we work on our herding skills, trying hard to get better. Hopefully we are. Sadly though it is getting dark very soon so our possibilities are limited to weekends only.

Last but not least, Zepp is a "soon-to-be" daddy. The mother of the future litter will be Applause Infinity Lovelenia. I am very much looking forward to the little balls of fur.

                        

As the very last piece of news it is a must to say that Zepp is a very proud father. One of his sons, Baxx, together with his owner Max started at AWC and ranked an incredible 9th place in Large category. Another precious kid Bambula competed at the age of three at the Czech Championship in herding in the highest CS3 category. Zepp's offspring are simply all amazing. I thank all owners for doing such a great job with them.

And the pictures, well, coming soon .)

july 22, 2018 - Fun in Budišov
On Sunday we headed off to a fun competion in Budišov. The atmosphere was great and I think we all enjoyed the event very much. Zepp ended second, right after his son Bambula :)

July 18, 2018 - herding

Even though the weather is not always perfect, we attempt to practice our herding skills. However, it is either scorching hot or pouring cats and dogs :) We have started preparing the Czech Championship in herding of Border Collies and a seminar with Eliane Verboven. We are currently looking into if to organize seminars with Petra Szarvas from Hungary and Terry Kenney from California. Plans are big, we'll see how it ends up :) 

july 16, 2018 - Jeseníky again

As we miss Jeseniky, we came back again, at least for a weekend :) Once more we walked through the nature and I stopped in Šumperk as well. I have this little project of mine and am eager to have an aquarium at home! I can't wait to leave this all behind and to have a beautiful aquarium of my own. 

July 9, 2018 - jeseníky mountains

As usually, the first week of July was in the name of Jeseniky. We had some extra friends visiting us, so there was no shortage of companion there :) It was a fabulous week full of trips, swimming and relax. 

  

June 23 and 24, 2018 - Visit from Finland 

At the weekend, we had a spceial visit again, but this time it was Laura and Jukka. They came from a distant Lapland where we went in 2016 and hopefully be back there next year. Laura and Jukka have Polar's brother Jack and Zepp's son Sam. 

May 26, 2018 - Herding by the castle

I got an interesting offer to show some herding skills at Hukvaldy castle. As this is an offer you cannot refuse, we headed to Hukvaldy. I was accompanied by Zepp and Polar only. Vixie is in heat so her presence was for understandable reasons not desirable. Together with us there were Monča with Bambula and Chase, and Radek and his family with Kery. I believe it was a well-done event, certainly not the last one of ours :)

May 14, 2018 - Zepp

Here comes another jubilee. Zepp is celebrating his 5th b-day. All the best buddy! 

may 13, 2018 - bäxx a max

Another big congrats go to Germany as well. Max and BÄXX won German tryouts for AWC 2018 and are nominated! I am very proud of them and will keep my fingers crossed. 

 

may 12 and 13, 2018 -  Agility National Championship of Border Collies

Another agility event we visited and that I am very happy to have been to. ANC was happening on a beautiful place we will surely visit at some point again. Tošovice simply amazed me. We met some of Zepp's puppies again - after Tessa as well as Anize. Zepp even met his first grand child :) Fab event and splendid results. Zepp's son Skippy together with his owner Verča became vicemasters in A1. Big congrats.

     

may 6, 2018 - Polar is celebrating :)

It is exactly three years ago that our youngest pack member was born. So, dear Polar, happy birthday, and I am wishing all the best to you and your sibings. 

may 2, 2018 - agility visit

I took the dogs and went to Opava to watch some of Zepp's progeny compete at agility. As usually they were doing great and I was very happy to see them again. 

April 23m 2018 - Visiting puppies

On Sunday we headed to Poland. The trip destinantion was clear - to see Zepp's and Zaraza's puppies. The journey was about 900km drive long, but it was worth it. Puppies are fabulous but we could have seen that coming :) 

April 16, 2018 - Český krumlov

We went to visit Český Krumlov this weekend. The initial problems with accommodation were solved and we managed to find great housing not only for us but for all my dogs too :). It was a really lovely weekend and I once again ensured myself that Český Krumlov truly is the most beautiful place in the Czech Republic. At least for me. On our way back Vixie met her breeder after some time, too.

April 3,  2018 - Extended weekend

On Thursday we set off to Jeseniky, to enjoy an extended weekend due to public holidays in the Czech Republic. On Friday we took the first trip and walked around 15 km. The following day we had another great trip of approx the same length planned. On Sunday we left to catch up with some herding in Olomouc. But the icing on the cake was Monday. The whole group, all in all 10 people and 16 dogs we went to Kelčský Javorník. And it was THE adventure as we walked up hill and down dale :)

March 6, 2018 - Puppies

Today seven gorgeous puppies after Zepp and Zaraza were born. All of them are healthy. 

 

February 27, 2018 - Visit from Finland

This weekend we had honorable guests. Marja and Hanna came to see us. Both girls have a dog from dog kennel Toberoi. Marja is Tempo's owner, Zepp's brother. Marja came to see Applause, a collie girl Zepp is going to sire at some point in March, as she would very much like to have a Zepp's progeny. We went to herding on Saturday and on Sunday we met Zepp's children on Šterkovna and later on in Pustevny. On Monday we headed to Prague, however without dogs this time. The weekend was restless, temperature severely low, but all in all - very nice.

january 2, 2018 - beginning of the year

The end of the year 2017 and the beginning of the year 2018 we spent in the mountains. We had a great time, although the weather was not the best. Almost every day it rained or there was at least mud, but nevertheless we went for walks every day. Also some of our dog and human friends have had visited us. The longest walk was over 20 km and it took place on a single day when it was quite nice weather :).

   

Zep mated Zaraza. After one month we will have information if there will be puppies.

january 1, 2018 - birthday and new year

Zepp's puppies have celebrated second year since their birth. We wish them all the best :) And on that occasion also all the best in the next year.
