I was dreaming about
a dog since my childhood. But my parents were strongly
against it. I was also strongly insisting. I was given
a trial (nothing special - only full cleaning of my room
every day for 30 days, because I will have to take care
for a dog daily. I had several attempts... I did not have
such a clean space of myself ever since then...) So, when
I turned out 14 years old, we went to the Pets bazaar.
Where can you get a puppy if not there? That was the result
of bad information on that topic.
We went there with
mum and my cousin. We had 3 breeds in our mind: collie,
airdale terrier or poodle. We went through the bazaar
for quite a while, and suddenly my sister says "
OK, I have chosen a dog for you". And I see the chocolate
nose looking out of her jacket. Of course we take this
That is funny, but
only when coming out of the bazaar place we thought that
it would be nice to see whom did we buy - a boy or a girl.
Boy! I called him Atos, because he had to be alive dignity,
cleverness and braveness. I tried myself what it means
to take a pup from a puppy mill. He was so much ill in
the beginning... We found out that he is only 3 weeks
old. Staphilococcus, then parvovirus. I still cannot understand
how did we manage to recover him after this. But anyway,
I was the most happy girl in the world. Tos'ka lived a
short (only 5 years), but I hope happy life. He was brave,
I would even say too much. He did not start any conflicts,
but showed that he is not afraid of anything. His life
tragically stopped in 1993.
At this time my
classmate Olga Knorre was staying in Finland. And her
mother (she helped in the beginning of Tos'ka's life and
in the very end) proposed that I go to see the standard
poodle pups already in 3 weeks from tragedy. Honestly
speaking I went there in order not to make Olga and her
mother upset. I did not believe that anyone could fill
Well, I entered
the breeder's flat (I. Ashukina) and here comes a black
doll and hangs on me... That's it! I was lost! In two
weeks, with all my savings in my hand I went to pick her
up. My Lialia. She is an epoque in my life. Lialechka,
Liasia, my father called her Nika (who is Lialia? Nika
- that is a real proud name!). And her official name was
fairy - Primavera iz Volshebnogo Sna (Primavera from the
Fairy Tale). Later they made a pedigree certificate for
her. There they lost the suffix and changed the name.
Till now I have puppy card for Primavera iz Volshebnogo
Sna ans pedigree cert for Pimerose. It is a pity, but
Lialia went over the rainbow after she turned 13 years
old in 2005.
She was a special
dog. Truly poodle. Together we studied the Poodle science.
First show, first win. Puppies class is won, we are first
among eight participants. Later in 1994 she wins the title
of Moscow Winner (Golden Autumn' 94 Show).
lovers could not make us crazy about shows and strange
relations with a breeder were the reason why we left showing.
Later Olga came back and in 1998 offered to mate Lialia
in order to leave her daughter with us - continuation
of Lialia. I agreed. After consultation with vet (I was
worrying to do the first mating at 6 years old...) and
conclusion that Lialia is fully healthy and can be mated,
we went to Gordik. I did not choose the male. He was offered
by the kennel Emerei and also they offered to register
the litter to their kennel. I agreed. As a result of this
appeared Lusha and Woodoo. Woodoo just could not be sold,
because I did not have any experience with selling the
puppies and the kennel did not help me with that.
I decided to stay with Emerei and started to do some things
useful for kennel. Organized advertising, made the web site,
even was a handler for other dogs for the kennel. That was
not a frequent practic, but I think that it was quite successfull.
For example we won BIS Speciality with Gordik, then BIS
of All-Russian Show Nutro Cup with Zephir. This is besides
my Woodoo and Lusha. We bacome Russian Champions, Lusha
wins BIS Speciality, Woodoo became National Poodle Club
comes the time to think about Lusha's "marriage".
I dig through the mess of books and magazines and my eye
is caught by the swedish male Caniche Noir Le Grand Ami.
Racketeer Exquisit Sinner blood, later I can inbreed in
Scandinavia or in Russia (Olga at that time brought in Lennart
- Racketeer Hit Man). I got acquanted with the owner of
this male (Reija Hittinen) via e-mail. I come to Sweden
to "hold" and to see him myself. Yes! I love that!
And also I love his temperament. So, I do not want any other
besides him for my Lusha. We mated two times and here they
are - 5 wonderful babies! Genetics played a trick with us,
and we had 4 white and 1 black pups! That was litter "I"
in Emerei kennel. That's it.
speaking I was not thinking about founding my own kennel.
But as we could not manage to have my name as at least co-breeder,
I, having healthy ambitions, decided that I have to be an
official breeder in my breeding.
I went to the kinology course in the Hunting Society of
Moscow (MOOIR). And here it is, "Moroshka's" kennel
prefix registration certificate # 7154. At the same time
I decided to form my breeding "heart". I decided
to work also with brown colour in standards and for that
purpose I brought in the brown female from Canada (with
Torpaz blood behind). And also I brought in a male of black-brown
mating out of the father of my pups (litter "I"
in Emerei) and a beautiful female from the kennel Dandy-Lion's.
It is all of a sorrow, Kompis-older went away in 2004, and
that was his last mating. Our black boy we call Kompis-jr.
very happy to have a co-thinker - Irina Riazanova. She is
a truly show fighter and very dedicated person.
we wish to ourselves - good fortune and good luck!
