Amazing art

june-leitch

My MOST favourite Artist in breed – June Leitch in UK – every piece is breathtaking and gives you a several (!) impressions of ESSENCE of this wonderful breed.

I wish I’d have a words enough to describe better :)
In every statue made by June Leitch, I see some moments of my own Afghan Hounds,
when they express their essence in certain moments.

Sure, I am not only one sees own dogs, but talent of June is awesome.
Let me a show ! Here comes Roxanna, ears in wind!

Even on the cake !!!

img_8565-001fb With this beautiful cake we are stepping from 2015 into 2016. It is February when I writing this…. just before Xmas we got the busiest times ever , enjoying the company and time with our grandchild and quality time. The website and blogging was on my to-do list but somewhat lost the mojo – we were just enjoying our family and our dogs.

Crafting for charity

Some times ago I was posting about my DIY project when I wanted to try out  leatherwork, and made collars for our own dogs.

No surprising that I get so easily into new addictions, this one was not to be meant different in any way :)

So I did some more collars – these six I donated to charity match show for their awards.

Match show was held last weekend here in Estonia and was arranged by MTU Jooksev Koer. 

Ther show helping handicapped three legged dogs by crafting the supporting frames so these dogs can walk again.

 

 

 

My next DIY project

Guess game!

Probably not hard to guess that this looks like DIY collar project.  Something what I have had in my mind quite long time and is in my mind actually every time when we have puppies.  So the best solution is to make them to be ready for our next puppies.

Just unbelievable how can I get addicted every time when I try the new type of crafts!
So I bought more paisley fabric and making new soft leather collars for all ours.

Scroll down to see how they turned out :)

Cameras love Lilli vol 1

Lilli have been in spotlight of several Great photographers in breed whose photos we have been admired many many years.

All these photos I was happy to see as lovely surprise, all of them were taken as candid from ringside in shows.
I am going to publish them in next posts.

This beautiful portrait of Lilli – C.I.B  CH Al Khabara Graceful Me is by Soile Huomo, kennel Hearthill in Finland.

We always have admired Soile’s great talent to capture the moments and breed essence in one click.  It is always emotions included in Soile’s photos.

Here is our Lilli, standing side of our show tent, just before entering to show ring.  Look at that proud expression, knowing her value, she seem to have a plan to show off, and there seem to be something in her mind we only can guess :)

Thank you Soile for this great portrait and also for the beautiful movement shot of Lilli is showring:
