New year again!
We had our first working labrador litter on autumn. So far everyone of them seems to be fine. Nice to see how they developes in future. It was really nice to get more experience with different breed. Some things were same as tollers, some things not. It was fun to learn new things. Good luck with them in future!

Lets start with sad news. Lyytis stomack did not grow normally, so I took her to a vet. Sadly she have had some kind of infection in her uterus, and all her puppies are dead. Now we just wait for them to come out. Lyyti has been ok all time, and you don't see anything from her outward. This was heartbreaking, I have to admit. I have been crying a lot.
Life must continue, even if it doesn't feel fair. Ruuti is now mated with Remu.
I have also done new pages to Siipiveikon in facebook. There you will find new happenings what we are going to do, and also some training session to dogs bred by us.

After a long time thinking, we decided to use Oona for breeding. She is now 8,5 years, but you can not see that on her. She is on perfect condition. Breeding was so called "double breeding", so hopefully there will be puppies for both males. We will do genetest for puppies to know who is whos dad. More information from Puppies -section.

Ruuti was inseminated 2.10. Now just fingers crossed!
Our first litter turned 7 years. It has been great to be with you within these years. Hopefully there are many more to come!
Voima passed AD-test, and he passed also behaving test for working dogs (BH).
Simo passed again search test for search and rescuedogs with degree exellent.
Viski is qualified to Finnish agility championships for year 2014.
Too much to write, but I try to put it all here:
Vimma is confirmed to be pregnant. Puppies will be born about 28.10. Also Ruuti started her heat, and she will be mated with frozen sperm within days. Sire will be Canadian CH Seabright's Start Me Up WCX MH RN NSDTR(US)WC "Mick".
From tollers huntingtest Simo got 1st prize from beginnersclass, Riki 3rd prize from open. On show Kiia got vg, Oona exc, Vimma vg, Intro exc+hp and best workingmale 3, Zelda exc+hp and best working female 3, Simo exc, Ruuti exc. On progeny group with Kiia we camed 4th.
Riki continued his great huntingtest season, and he got 1st prize again in openclass B-tests. Now he will start in winnersclass at next year. He will be 3rd of Kiias puppies in winnersclass. This is something unbelievable!
Lyyti has continued her great obedience career. On her last competition she got 1st prize again, 192p, HP and TK1. She will move to openclass.
Ruuti, Tia and Lyyti has been in eye-check. Ruuti and Tia had ok eyes, Lyyti had one extra lash in other eye and few in other. This has never made any problems to her and lashes were small and soft, so maybe she will have puppies at next year.
Rasmus had visitors from Germany. Hopefully they will have puppies with Gayyjt.
Simo was participating on IPOR search A, and won the whole test. He will get a new title RH FL A.
Nalli got 3rd 1st prize from obedience, and got a new title TK1.
Viski loves agility! Last weekend they had 6 starts, and 5 with zero faults (one with 5 fp). Now they will need only one more 0-result, and they will get already all qualifiqations to Finnish agility championships at next year.
Duckhunting -season has started! Nice retrieves to our own dogs, and also dogs bred by us.
Vimma is now mated with Kenobi. Everything work out very well, even tought I had to take a really fast fly because of Vimmas progesterones. Vimma and Kenobi really loved each other, and now we are keeping fingers crossed for puppies. Thanks Lisa about everything!
Tollers bloodtracking championshipments went really fine with Siipiveikon -dogs. On winnersclass we got a new bloodtracking champion, when Siipiveikon Sannisyyshehku got their 1st prize 3rd time. They also won winnersclass. Voima got also 1st prize from winnersclass, and they came 3rd. Nuutti was trying to find more living birds than a bloodtrack, but they got 3rd prize. On openclass Rigo got 1st prize and he camed 2nd in his class with same points as winner. Congrats to all tollers and their owners!
Also Ruuti was in bloodtracking competition, and she got openclass 1st prize with 47 points. Next summer she will start in winnersclass, great!
Next weekend we will have tollers huntingcompetition and tollershow. First year for a long time we don't have a dog to participate on huntingtest: Vimma and Muusa are having their heat, Oona has been in real hunting, not practicing huntingtests, I don't think Kiia will hear anymore on long distances in winnersclass lots over 100 meters and some tasks on openclass could be a bit difficult to Neva. So we are just watching. On show we will be, but it is nothing compared to hunting.
Vimmas heat has started. She will be mated in Germany at next week with Kenobi, Devilish Kenobi the Diligent Red Hunter. More information under Puppies.
Lots of new nice results, including Nallis and Katariinas gold medal in Finnish championschips for young leaders in obedience:
Vimma huntingtests openclass 3rd prize. She was ok, but free search was too slow and waterline too heavy.
Neva WT beginnersclass 1st prize 81p and placement to 1st. Ville was really satisfied how she worked.
Riki huntingtest openclass 3rd prize.
Ruuti huntingtest beginnersclass 3rd prize with great critique.
Then some bloodtracking results:
Voima openclass 1st prize 46p and best in his class. From second bloodtracking they got also 1st prize with 40 points, so they are heading to winnersclass!
Ruuti openclass 1st prize 44p.
Rigo openclass 1st prize 48p and from other competition they got 3rd prize.
Tia (SV Palloilee Pellolla) 11months got 3rd prize 28points from their first bloodtracking competition.

Lyyti got from her first obedience competition beginnersclass 1st prize, honour prize, 181,5 points and was first in their class.
There has been too many accidents also happening to dogs bred by us: a snake bite to nose, a bee stab to throat, hospital bacterial infection in a liver and in gall bladder, neck muscle hurting (and first we were afraid of SRMA because neck was in pain. They took spinalfluid sample to be 100% sure it isn't anything to do with autoimmuno. Thank good it wasn't but of course you are losing your mind with things like that). So now we have enought of accidents, please no more!
How time flies! There has been so many happenings.
Muusa got her litter. There was only one BIG boy, Ukko. He is adorable, and lets see how he develepes.
On April I participated tollerclubs day for breeders. Important things, unfortunately there was not so many breeders participating. On May we arranged a unofficial huntingtest for dogs bred by us. It was so nice to see so many of you, almost one class only Siipiveikon-dogs. Great to have active puppyowners.
On June Vimma, Aliisa and I had an exiting day: Final exam for being hypodog for diabetic. And Vimma passed the test with full points! Now we just follow how she shows low bloodsugarlevels in normal life, and in December we will hopefully get Vimma to a real helperdog for a diabetic.
Neva started on official huntingtest beginnersclass twice on June, and she got two 1st prizes with great attitude. Ville and Neva was starting on workingtest, and they got super points before finals (77/80). On finals Neva retrieved a plastic ducks instead of dummy, so it was 0. So things can happen, you will never know.
I was visiting at Germany with Päivikki to meet local tollerowners and their dogs. We also met Rasmus becoming fiancee Gaayjt. Really nice trip, thanks again!
Vimma tested as CEA-A.
Then dogs bred by us:
Rasmus was choosen on toller workingtest as a toller of that test. Riikka (owner of Pippa) took Vimma with her ( I stayed at home waiting for Muusas birth), and it was her first workingtest what Riikka ever saw. And she was participating on openclass. Nice to own a dog who you can trust, even they got 0.
Viski and Luma was both in agilitys Finnish championships. Both did small mistakes, but still a possibility to take a part was great.
Riki got 1st prize from openclass huntingtest B (with cold game) and became judges choice. They got also openclass 2nd prize, so I believe soon we will have again one more Siipiveikko at winnersclass huntingtests.
Kelmi mentaldescription +122p and secure with guns.
Simo got 2nd prize from obedience beginnersclass.
Nessa passed MH-test, and acted how she usually acts.

I started with Zelda at unofficial huntingtest because her owner was on bloodtracking competition. Zelda did a great job with really less training, I did only two training with her before. Just a little bit more training and she will be great. We got 2nd prize and camed to second.
Pippa scared us really bad. She started to puke and was unwilling. Vet found propably an infection from her liver, and now antibiotics are working and she is better. Now we just wait for her to get much better soon.
Voima obedience beginnersclass 3rd prize.
Osku (SV Pohjoisen Pelloilla) passed retrievingtest only 10 months old. Great!

For next year I don't have any special wishes. I hope some of my puppyplans will come true. I also hope that all my puppyowners are happy to their dogs, and for dogs I wish health and nice retrieves.
Puppies page is reloaded. More information of the male will follow.
A while ago Simo and Hanna had to go for a real search for a missing person at Sastamala. It was minus 20 degrees, but after 11 hours Simo and Hanna found her alive. They are our true heroes!

Vimma (SV Sorsansurma) passed first step on her way to be a helper dog for diabetic.
We had our kennelmeeting in the beginning of November. On Saturday we had huntingtraining, and on Sunday obedience, show, and bloodtracking. There were more than 40 people participating, and it was so fun to see you all! Lets meet again in spring.
Neva (our labrador) was X-rayd with great results: A/A and 0/0.
I have forgotten to write it here: we are practicing with our Vimma to be a diabeticdog. She should learn to show too low and too high bloodsugar levels. It is really fun to train, but of course it takes time. That is reason why our other dogs has got a longer holidays without any competitions. Our school is going to continue untill next summer, and first exam will be at next month. Exiting (and a bit frightening too)!
Rasmus (SV Rasmusrepohäntä) got winnersclass 2nd prize from workingtest. Now he and his sister Muusa are only tollers in Finland who has prizes from WT and huntingtests winnersclass. I'm so proud of them.
Viski (SV Viskivilliviini) becamed agilitychampion. He is 5th maxi agilitychampion in Finland. You rock!

Good luck to all little cuties, and lets keep in touch in future too!
Own dogs Muusa and our working labrador Neva got clear from eye-exam. This means that our future puppyplans moved a little forward. Watch more from Puppies-section. Neva was also X-rayd, and we are waiting for her results.
Ruuti (SV Täyttä Ruutia) got also healthy eyes. Also Nuutti (SV Pyhät Pyssyt) was eye-examined, and he got multifocal RD. There is no harm for him with that, and he will go to a new exam next year.
Nalli (SV Nalli Napsahtaa) passed retrievingtest.

I have to thank my puppyowners too, you are so great!
Kingi (SV Kaislikon Kuningas) passed retrievingtest.
Nalli (SV Nalli Napsahtaa) not passed, because he did like too much about one bird. I know he will pass in future too.
Visa (SV Viis Veisaa) got 2nd prize from tollingtest, and they camed 5th on competing juniortoller master. Way to go Sussie!
On Finnish tollers huntingtest we didn't get any good prizes, but feeling to work with my girls was great. For that feeling I'm ready to give thousands and thousands hours of hard work. It was nice to compete, when we have so great team around us. Congrats to new tollermaster Minna and Viljo!

Back at home! Matingtrip to Sweden was easy and fun, so now we have fingers crossed for puppies. Nessas progesterone started to rise quite slowly, and she was mated at days 19-21. Hyzz was so nice as I felt in first trip, and they fell in love immediately. So hopefully we will have puppies in the beginning of August.
We have a new champion in our Siipiveikon-team: FI CH Siipiveikon Täyttä Ruutia "Ruuti". She is from Oona-Ducke -litter, and she just came 2 years. She got 3 sertifications from 6 shows, and already at last summer she passed retrieving test. Great job Ruuti and family, ans special thanks to Emilia! :)
Vala got first prize from obedience openclass, 181 points and HP.
Susa from Sweden competed again in Rally Obedience. They got again first prize, and now they will move to winners class. Now Susa is RLD N RLD F Siipiveikon Kaislikko Kuiskii.
Kingi got 3:rd pize from bloodtracking.
Kelmi got 3rd prize from Mölleri, unofficial retrievingtest for tollers. He camed 3/9. His brother Rigo got unfortunately 0, but more practice and training.
And I was with Muusa in huntingtest winnersclass. It was not our day, but we won't give up!
Father to Nessan litter is now announced. Because Nessa started her heat so early, we got more exitement for Sara trying to find an eye-exam time for his male. Now it is done, and he had healthy eyes. Male for Nessas litter will be LP1 LP2 LP3 SE VCH NORD UCH C.I.B C.I.E Fagerlands Röda Hyzz De Amorex "Hyzz". Thanks for Sara this possibility! Now we are waiting for a right time to go to Sweden.
Our working labrador Neva (Highhut's Eleonorae) passed retrieving test very easily. It was our goal for this summer, so lets see what Ville will do with her in future.
Muusas puppies are already 2 years! Concratulations all!
Susa (SV Kaislikko Kuiskii) got first prize from rally obedience, and won her class with 96/100 points (50 participators)! Now she got RLD N. They started already in rally obediece open class, and got first prize too (96/100points). Then they started at beginners class obedience, and got 1st prize too. I'm so proud of you, way to go girls!
Kingi was at bloodtracking, but unfortunately they got 0. Kingi was too interested about living animals, but better luck next time.
Vimmas puppy moved to his new home to Elina and Tommi. They live at Tammerfors about 30km from us. His real name is now Siipiveikon Tuulta Päin, and he will be called Vilppu. He is really open and fearless puppy, and I'm looking forward to see how he developes in future. Good luck!
Nessa (Siipiveikon Lokinluovuttaja) decided to start her heat earlier than expected. I have a male for her in my mind, and he will be announced at next week.
Siipiveikon-team participated to unofficial WT-test. All got good experience and new trainingtips.
Kiia was sterilized and they took at same time few small mammary tumors from her. She had her 9th birtday, and she is still going strong in her mind and body.

Last weekend at Tampere show they were participating in national team qualifier, and they got in best group of 10 (60 participators). Unfortunately only 5 will go to national team. Emilia is still so young, so they will get really far.

We participated with Neva and Muusa to Nevas breeders (Highhut's) training weekend. Trainer was Graham Slater from UK. Weekend was great, and dogs worked out well. It was nice to see that also Graham liked them, and he told that in his opinion Muusa was much better than working goldens in UK. Thanks for this compliment.
Vimma had her litter on Thursday 22.3. We got only one boy. He looks just like his father. Vimma has been supermama. Her temperature started to drop at Thursday morning, and I thought she could start her birth on friday. Ville was leaving to work for at night, and he was putting his coat on. I watched to puppybox, and Vimma was having her first pushs! Without any scratching on floor, not being unsure or stressed or anything. I didn't see her openingstage, and usually it can take more than 24 hours from first timers. Just pushing her puppies out. So Ville didn't leave to work, and I called to my mother to come just in case if we have to leave to vet so there will be someone with kids. Boy camed easily, and he was immediately going to have some milk. He was almost walking. Then there camed only water bag, nothing in birth canal. We were joking that Ville and Vimma just wanted to have waterballoons from Germany. Then I felt a leg in birth canal, but puppy took really many pushes to come just a little more out. And we saw why: She was coming abdomed up, back down (and backlegs first)! I have never seen a puppy coming in that positision before. She was stucked, but Vimma could push her until puppys ribs stopped her. I didn't have enough force to get her out, Ville had to take her. When we got her out I understood she was gone. There was only few minutes before I felt her kicking in birth canal, and now she was gone. I tried to give her some air to her lungs, and we tried to make her better, but there was nothing we could do. Vimma was licking and licking her, and she even tried to put her tongue to her mouth to get water out, but she was dead. She had perfect white spots and a really big white star in her head. I was really disappointed and sad. After crying whole night I accepted it, and now I'm glad that we got a big and strong boy. Vimma is great with him.
After this small litter, we are planning even more Nessas litter for summer. More info will come in this spring.
Oonas puppies will be two years, congratulations!
Viski and Teresa has demanded results to participate again in Finnish championships in agilty. They need just one more sertification to come Finnish agility champion.
Sanni and Mervi got TK2 in obedience class 2 and now they will move to winnersclass.
Rasmus and Päivikki got 2nd prize from obedience class 4.
Ruutis hips B/B and elbows 0/0. Nessas eyes clear.
Simo and Hanna has been first time in real search for disappeared human. Disappeared was not in their area, but Simo was working great even there was 3 helicopters and dogwalkers on search area.
Kingi showed how versatile toller can be: He has been in raccoon dog hunting. They have got 6 of them in winter. He has found caves of raccoon dogs, then they put a terrier to those nests.
Congratulations to all of you!
On Thursday 9.2.2012 we got a new little babygirl in to our family. Dogs have accepted her nicely, and they act as baby has always belonged to our family. At same day also Kelmis family got a new baby girl, congratulations!
Then some results:
Rasmus was best huntingtest toller of year 2011! Muusa was best in winnersclass, Rasmus in openclass and Riki in beginnersclass. So triple winning for us as breeder. :) This was 7:th (!) year when Kiia or some of her offsprings has win this title. Simo was workingdog of year 2011. Riki was best openclass toller in obedience, and Rasmus becamed 2:n in TOP-toller of the year. Thanks to you all!
Then some health results: Oonas puppies x-rays: Nuutti B/B 0/0, Vala B/B 0/0, Nalli C/C (not tight hips)0/0 and we are waiting for Ruutis hips from Kennelclub, they looked normal. Muusas puppies X-rays: Aida B/B 0/0, Kingi A/A 0/0, Lyyti A/A 0/0. Kelmi was in eye-exam, and he got as result non-hereditary kataract, suspicious. Doctor told that this does not look like a normal cataract, and if it looks same at next year she will say it is not a cataract.
Kingi was at Turku dog show, and he got exellent.
And last but not least: Vimma seems to be pregnant. She is having signs of it, but we haven't done an ultrasound with her. If I'm not sure at next week, we will go to vet to check it. But I would say she is going to have puppies. Exiting!
Vimma <3 Gunner! Vimma has been mated in Germany 15-17.1.2012. Matings were really easy, and after few minutes they fell in love. Ville and Vimma went and came back with airplane, because it was a lot faster. Vimma was relaxed in airplane and everything else was ok (dog was where she was supposed to be and so on), so now thumbs up for puppies. They were supposed to come back on Thursday, but because matings happend immediately we changed return to Wednesday. Good for that, because on Thursday there camed horrible snowstorm, and it would be not nice to be in airplane with dog in that weather. Gunners owner Ute was a really big help with practical things, and Ville was thrilled about her and her familys hospitality. So my biggest and deepest thanks to her.
If everything goes as planned, we can have puppies about 18 of March. Puppies are seeking for active homes who are interested about huntingtests and/or hunting and other activities.
Vimmas eys clear, so puppyplans are one step closer.
Vimmas heat has started! Now it is just waiting for a mating. Vimmas eye-exam is also at next tuesday. Fingers crossed with everything. You can read more about under puppies -section.
18.12 we had a meeting for Viis puppies, and on 6.1.12 we had a meeting to all dogs bred by us. We had rented a hall, and on other half we had obedience and on other half we had show-training. Then good eating and nice chatting with great people. Super!
Today Vimma got in openclass obedience 1st price, 185 points and honour price. She was really nice, and I was enjoying doing with her.
Nalli (Siipiveikon Nalli Napsahtaa) was also at same obedience competition, and he got 2nd price and 140 points. Nice beginning Katariina!
Riki got in openclass obedience 1st price, TK2 and was placed 1/3. I have forgotten to mention that they got exellent at Seinäjoki dogshow october.
Kelmi was at Jyväskylä dogshow. On saturday he got exellent and was placed second in workingclass and on sunday he got exellent and was placed 1st in workingclass.
At Helsinki dogshow young Ruuti was participating in juniorhandler competition (tournament of Finnish championship) with Emilia. They were placed 5/31. Great job, because in the beginning she was supposed to have a different dog and Ruuti was just sleeping in the car. :)
On Finlands indepence day at Tampere dogshow all Siipiveikon dogs got exellent. Kingi got exellent 1st in youthclass, Nuutti exellent and 2nd in huntingclass and Vala exellent, CK and 2:nd in youthclass.
Then one result what I REALLY do appreciate. Simo (Vimmas brother) passed polices authority test, and now he is really part of rescuedogs for searching missing humans. Dogpolice who was observing test told that he did exellent job. Tollers really can do everything with good owner!
I got some nice news from our puppyowner. Oonas puppy Siipiveikon Kovat Piipussa "Remu" was bloodtracking wounded elk and he found it. He has been used in duck hunting too, and he has got some nice retrieves. Good!
I was in obedience competition with Vimma, and we got 1:st price and we won our class in openclass. On second competition we missed only 0,5 points from first price. It is so nice to do obediece with her.
Riki (Vimmas brother) was in unofficial mentaltest (judge was real judge, but test was unofficial). He got 208 points and fine with shooting. Great!
Lets start with sad news. Siipiveikon Viis Viimasta "Rafu" 4,5 months got hitted by a car and he died immediately. We are so sorry, and I hope that Rafu's family will get over this sadness. This is life. :(
Then some better news:
Riki got in openclass obedience 1:st price, 182,5 points, was first of seven dogs and got honour prize.
We had a meeting to Viis-puppies. It was so nice to see you, and it was fun to see how they are somekind of mix from their mother and father. I liked them a lot.
Vimma will propably start her heat sooner or later. She is acting like her seasons are close, but we will see. Usually she will wait until her bigger sisters starts their heat, but on the other hand Kiia just started it. So we will wait and see.
Huntingseason begun! We had our Oona and Kiia with us, but unfortunately we didn't get too many ducks. But it was fun to see how Kiia loves searching in long grass, she is really made for it.
Highligt of autumn was at last weekend: Kennelmeeting with Redadict. We had Anita and Sanna from Sweden as our teachers, and I believe that everyone who participated got new ideas for own training. BIG thanks to our teachers and to Annina of organisation!
Lots has happend to our "puppies":
Most scary thing happend to Aida (Siipiveikon Kaislikosta Kajahtaa), who got lost. She found in next day from few kilometres away: She wanted to play with some unknown children at their summer cottage, but she didn't found her way back home so she sleeped one night outside. It was marvellous to her that hear tail was swinging, and she didn't get scared at all. She just seemed to had a nice little vacation. :)
Vala (Siipiveikon Piiput Kuumina) got from two obedience tests two 1:st prices from beginnersclass, so now she has titel TK1.
Riki (Siipiveikon Variksenviejä) got from obedience openclass 1:st price, 195 point and was 1/6. He got also openclass 2:nd price.

Oonas puppy Pihka got 1st price in beginners class. It was not our day, but more practice and training.
Rasmus (Siipiveikon Rasmusrepohäntä) got first price in hunting test, and he will be 9th toller ever in winnersclass in Finland. One is Kiia and second is Muusa, so not bad at all!
Vimma got at huntingtest 3:rd price from openclass (line dind't work out), Mjösund huntingtest openclass 3:rd price (missed another marking) and in Pomarkku huntingtest she got 2:nd price (missed one crow in land search).

Nice to be at home! We participated this years Tollarspecialen in Sälen with our Muusa and Vimma. Both got in huntingtests 2:nd prices, not bad at all even if they didn't do their totally best. Vimma suprised us, and she won huntingclass in show. Also Muusa got HP. Vimma becamed 6:th in Tollermaster competition (best bitch by the way), and Muusa was number 15. Nice trip, and finnish dogs got great results. Congratulations!

Her matingdays would be too close for Kiias birth, so unfortunately we don't have possibility to do this litter just now. Vimmas next heat will be maybe on december-january, so better luck next time.

And last but not least: We have a new member in our gang. Black gundog labrador Highhuts's Eleonorae (Highhut's Vega - Justlike Kronprins Frederik) joined us a week ago.
