I got my first tibetan spaniel in year 1981. It was FINNISH CHAMPION RAJARITAN ZAVIER ( INT & NORD CH Central Point Fredrik x Rajaritan Hanna) bred by Raija Keskinen from Nokia . Sakke was very good tibbie to start dog hobbies and we were at dog show many times. He got first prize 52 times and second prize only 3 times from Finland , Sweden and Danmark. He died 1995 almost 14 years old.
My second tibbie game to us in year 1989. It was SWINGHILL`S LITTLE-BIG-MAN ( INT & NORD CH Silences Marconi x Swinghill`s Beloved) bred by Marja Siivola from Lempäälä. He was not a show dog because of too long lover jaw, but we take part in obedience. We finish first class after four time, but second class was not easy, because he don`t want to apport. We tried 6 times and got three times third prize. He had very nice character and he was really lively. Still 14 years old he went out same time with our big german pointer Linda. Rape got his latest official certificate of eye examination 5.4.2001 at 12 years old. He does not show symptoms of pra,hc or rd illness. 28.4.2001 Rape got first prize in Lahti international dog show. He died spring 2003 over 14 years old.
My third tibetan spaniel game to us in year 2001 at 9 weeks old. He is white/black male SAFFRON BLOOMING ( Parkwell Tuchd Bya Budda x Fin Ch Saffron Imabloom) bred by Pirkko Linnus from Kuopio. Retu is a little charmer, very happy and lively. Retu has got 1 CAC and 1 res-CAC from Finland and 1 CAC, 1 CACIB, 1 res-CACIB & 1 best of opposite sex from Estonia.
