November 16th, 2012 ~ No babies this time

Unfortenately we have some bad news to share ... For some reason Astrid has resorbed the babies that we could see at an early ultrasound some weeks ago. X-ray today confirmed that there are no babies left in her belly ... but we will do this mating again during spring 2013.

November 16th, 2012 ~ Good bye to the minis

I have, after careful consideration, decided to stop showing and breeding white Miniature Schnauzers but will possibly have a last litter of white minis during autumn/winter 2013/2014 and mother to that litter will, in that case, be our home bred sweet girl Alba, Grand Royal's Beloved White Sigyn. She is though living at kennel Skäggtorpet now.

Our Bianca, Silfurskugga Eileen White Pearl is, since a year back, out of our breeding program due to severe dental failure in her first litter (our C-litter) and my recommendation is that none of the babies (now 2,5 years old) from that combination will ever be bred from.

November 7th, 2012 ~ Destiny 2 years

It's incredible how time flies ... but our lovely little nutty fawn girl Destiny aka Kemanilo Total Destiny is 2 years today!!! Happy Birthday and lot's of love to her breeder Kelly Nayar at Kemanilo Great Danes in Scottland as well as all her littersibblings in the Kemanilo Total-litter.

July 4th, 2012 ~ RIP Siri

Our beloved Siri is gone and life will never be the same again ... She should had been 8 years this September, but a large tumor on her liver put an end to that and left us with a big whole in our hearts.

It hurts so much every time a family member has to walk over the rainbow bridge, but this time it even hurts more since Siri really was the world to me - our very special grand old lady. She has now joined her daughter, Embla, and a lot of other beloved ones and became the brightest shining star in the sky. Rest in peace beloved Siri! Run free ... Forever in our hearts.

May 6th, 2012 ~ The boy of my dreams ...

When we went to Germany in February to pick up Birka I met several very nice dogs at kennel La Esperanza ... but particulary one of them stayed in my mind, a lovely 3 year old fawn boy called Diego ... so when Carsten & Evelin decided to cut down on the number of dogs I just knew I had to have him - and now he's here!

I must be the happiest girl in the world ... cause this fantastic boy has a temperament you can only dream of and, on top of that, a look that beats the most (if you ask me) ... and he's mine! More info and pedigree is to be found on his own site here and you will most likely see him in the showrings arround Sweden this upcoming summer.

Thank you so much Carsten & Evelin for trusting me with your lovely boy!!

lovely Diego

March 28th, 2012 ~ Goodbye my striped Irish prince ...

Since it showed that Shamrock has cataract in his right eye, his breeder, Maria Gkinala, wanted him to go back to Ireland since I'm not gonna show or breed him here ... and I know that Maria will take really good care of him since he's very special to her, so I'm letting him go back to the green island. A very sad day for us cause we will really miss him a lot ... the little bumble-bee. When returning to Ireland Shamrock will be called Duffy instead, since that's the name Maria called him as a little baby before moving to Sweden. We're very greatful to have had the possibility to get to know him and hope we can go visit some day ... Forever in our hearts!

Shamrock, waiting for the transport to Ireland ...

March 25th, 2012 ~ Hopefully ...

We have mated Bozz to our Astrid and hopefully we will have fawn and brindle puppies in mid May. Inqueries are welcome!

Hopefully we will have puppies in mid May
For info on the dogs in this combination, please visit their own sites here.

February 21st, 2012 ~ Welcome Birka

This weekend we've been out on a trip - to Germany - to pick up our latest edition, a very special little brindle girl that we will call Birka. Her pedigree name is Hanna La Esperanza and she's bred by Carsten Göring in Greven, Germany.

Birkas sire is Joey vom Salzbach and her dam is Carina La Esperanza. She will soon have her own site here.

Hanna La Esperanza, 14 weeks in pic

Thank you Carsten & Evelin for this lovely little girl! Hope we will see you in Sweden soon.

February, 2012 ~ our C-litter of white minis

Unfortenately 3 out of 4 puppies in our C-litter of white Miniature Schnauzers has dental failures like undershot, incorrect scissor bites and so on, so for that matter we have now assigned Grand Royal's Cavalier White Lothar aka Herman, to his co-owners since he's not included in our breeding program and we don't want him to ever be bred from. The female, Grand Royal's Cute White Edelweiss aka Tyra, that was out on breeding terms is also assigned to the co-owner as was previously and will hopefully never ever be bred eather since she has a undershot. She is though eye scanned clear on January 25th 2012. The only one from this litter that has been shown officially is the one with correct bite.

Surprisingly it was though only one of the babies in the C-litter that actually had a undershot for the time of delivery, when 8 weeks old, and he's now neutered. The dam of this litter, our Bianca, has correct bite her self and haven't got any more babies with dental failures (our D-litter).

February 10th, 2012 ~ SHAMROCK 2 YEARS

A big Happy Birthday to Shamrock, Fainomenon Sharp Dressed Man, and his sibblings on their 2nd birthday!!!!

January 16th, 2012 ~ Sad news ...

Today is a sad day ... But unfortenately it has shown that Shamrock, when eye examinated today, has a posterior polar cataract on his right eye, in Swedish that's called katarakt bakre polär. He also has crystalline changes on his left eye, but the examiner couldn’t say if it will develop into a cataract as well in time.

As s a responsible breeder, even if the mode of inheritance is unclear, I will herefore never ever let Shamrock be used for breeding.

Naturally there will be a change of plans regarding Astrid and our planned litter. Male to be used instead will be presented later.

January 14th, 2012 ~ rehoming ...

Miniature Schnauzer female, aprox 6 months old, is looking for a new loving forever home. Please contact us for more info!

Our cooperation partner in Mini Schnauzers, kennel Skäggtorpets, also have an adult male (white) for rehoming to pet home and a white female puppy that's looking for a home where she can live on breeding terms (fodervärd, på svenska). Preferably not more than 100-150 km from Norrköping. Please contact Linda at Skäggtorpets for more info.

January 6th, 2012 ~ MyDog Int DogShow, Gothenburg/Sweden

Astrid, Flyyans Anno Attilla, competed in intermediate class at MyDog under judge Günther Ehrenreich from Austria and became 2nd best intermediate bitch with CK. Unfortenately she was unplaced in Best Bitch competition class later, but I'm are very pleased with the result since this was her second in door show ever (first time was in March 2011) and her first show since July last year.
