We have received wonderful photos about Turo (Whiptails Miracle Mac) and his friend Bandhu, therefore we thought that it would be nice to share some of them with you. The boys really have great places for playing and relaxing. Richard and Isarina, many thanks for the photos!

Welcome to Finland, Hector

>> Friday, 21 October 2011

We have a great honour to announce our Special Guest Star's safe arrival in Finland.
Hector aka Becscott Slim Jim With Ipanema JW will have a little holiday with us. When the time is right he will hopefully have a romantic encounter with our Ida (Int Ch Whiptails Milk'n Honey). It's interesting to see what the future brings!

Welcome to Finland, dear Hector!
Heartfelt thanks to Mr Boughton and Ipanema family for letting him to spend a little vacation with us.


Happy thoughts for today

>> Tuesday, 18 October 2011

Both Fiona and Rudolf have their eyes open. Rudolf has developed a little bit faster but he is also little bit older than Fiona since he was born first ;-)

It's so amazing how they explore the new world, try to run and jump and play. And what is most touching, Rudolf is really eager to wag his tail. This morning when we woke up, he wagged his tail and fell over on his back with joy and happiness :-)


Food and other stuff from internet

>> Monday, 17 October 2011

Or to be more precise, from Germany. We have usually ordered things from Finnish web shops but decided to try this shop. There has been some discussion, both good and bad about Zooplus. But we decided to try it ourselves and see how everything's going to work.

Our Zooplus order was so big that it was delivered as two separate (and heavy) parcels. The delivery time was a little bit over one week which was totally fine. Unfortunately the first box was broken during the travel so we lost some of the cat food. Despite that we find Zooplus worth using also next time :-)

Patu checked the boxes really carefully
He wasn't happy to see that another one of their Miamor box was broken.
Mori didn't participate with opening the boxes. She had something else to do on Timo's laptop.

Enough dog food, at least for a while ;-)
Patu testing the new cat den. Both Mori and Patu loved it!


Helmi's autumn holiday in Saukkola

>> Saturday, 15 October 2011

We had a pleasure to have Helmi, Whiptails Golden Gem living with us for one week while her owners were in Italy. At first Helmi was a bit shy but that went over... As you can see on the photos, there was quite a lot of action on Friday evening.

2 weeks old puppies

>> Friday, 14 October 2011

Geena’s puppies are already 2 weeks old. This time has gone really fast! Geena is such a good Mom (like all her relatives are) so virtually we have just been able to watch and enjoy them without having much extra work. The puppies have eaten well, they have gained weight nicely, they have even begun to play a bit – so far so good!

Even granny Taikku got the permission to take care of the puppies a couple of times. She was on seventh heaven when she was allowed to clean the babies a bit (even though they were already clean, but that’s not the main point) .

The power of co-operation

Proud and extremely happy Granny Taikku with the puppies
