A time has come, when all puppies of the „A” litter from the wonderful American blood champion Aberdeen Remarkable In Paris “Marcus” and our champion from Sweden Tappinskis Rubi For Dogarium “Rubi” live in their new loving homes. On this occasion we decided to present our wonderful owners and coowners, to whom – with clear conscience – we gave first whippets born in Dogarium kennel.
Dog: Dogarium Allan
Owner: Gao Ye from Hei Ju (FCI) kennel
Home: Pekin, Chiny
Little Allan was lucky to find a dog show addicted family. Handsome Gao Ye with his beautiful wife, lovely son and their whippets live in the famous Beijing. The head of the family is a well-known make-up artist, who works with astonishing models, and in his free time lives for his second passion – whippets, which from time to time are models themselves in professional photo shoots for magazines. Gao Ye spends every free moment for long walks, trainings and – whippet-standard – “coach potatoing” :). In love with “American-type” he successfully collects podiums on dog shows. In private really funny and open joker, but also very helpful and cultural gentleman with constant smile on his face, who really loves his family, including the dog part of it.
Bitch: Dogarium Alpha
Home: Bydgoszcz, Polska
Alpha stays in our kennel! :)
Dog: Dogarium Albee
Bitch: Dogarium Alaia
Owner: Liu Hongtao from Yi Zhong (FCI) kennel
Home: Heze, Chiny
Another dog-addict, another dog show lover. Sympathetic, funny and supportive Liu works as a government official and in private he is a dog breeder. Together with his beautiful wife he often goes to dog shows with his dogs, and successfully reaches for highest placings – we are jealous for his successes! They both live in Haze, a place full of parks, ancient ruins, museums and old buildings. In this wonderful city they spend lots of time walking with their beloved, beautiful whippets. Still we are breath-taken impressed by an astonishing brindle-white puppy bred by Liu – great job!
Dog: Dogarium Alvaro
Owners: Dogarium i Marita Holm Ernstsen from Workingland (FCI) kennel
Home: Tromsdalen, Norwegia
Alvaro will have a fantastic life, because his owner bound her life with cynology! Marita owns the Hundevis company, which takes care for and trains dogs. She is a breeder of Dobermans and also owns a black working-line whippet girl and her son from the Courtborne kennel, from which also Alvaro’s grandfather comes. Marita also owns a German Shepherd companion bitch, with which she trains IPO and other skills. Marita is also a handler, agility trainer and supporter of clicker positive training. Alvaro will never ever get bored in that home – he will grow up as a versatile, well trained and socialized dog!
Dog: Dogarium Alf
Dog: Dogarium Alcoy
Owner: Yang Jiexun from Shen Hui (FCI) kennel
Home: Kunshan, Chiny
Yang is very very special to us. Thanks to him this trans-continental journey became real! Yang is brilliant, warm, empathetic and polite gentleman with vast cynological and general knowledge, that impresses all and makes conversations a great pleasure. He is a true dog passionate and an owner of dog accessories shop. He owns two bitches – a mother Bobo and her daughter. His whippets have more clothes than many women and they arrange fashion shows to their dog friends on dog playgrounds. Together with two of his whippet-loving friends he helped us fulfil our dream of having our pedigree and kennel name to the astonishing Asia, and more precisely to China, where the city cynological boom is spreading to less urbanized regions. For many years we have been fascinated with Asian diligence, culture, morality, value system, artistic, academic and economic achievements, and… great food! We are honoured that Yang invited us to his country (twice!), and made the dream of Dogarium pedigree on different continents is so close, and just with the first litter. Thanks to him, breeding dogs has even bigger meaning for us, as there is no more important thing than geographical pedigree and blood mix.
We are also happy that together with Gao Ye, Liu and Yang we can promote a pedigree dog as a life companion and a family member, which not only gives you unconditional love, but may also become a new wonderful hobby – broadly defined cynology. Thanks to this adventure we feel that our actions are not only just passion, but also a drop in the ocean to promote the vision and ideas of FCI.
Dog: Dogarium Alec
Owners: Dogarium i Riitta Keponen
Home: Vantaa, Finlandia
Our last puppy, the so called „number eight”, experienced a blessing in disguise. The first interested person unfortunately had to resign of ownership, so that the wonderful Riitta could be his new owner. Riitta is a lecturer at the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. She lives in a house with a garden near a river, where Alce will have a possibility of running freely and spending lots of time with his warm, intelligent and friendly owner, who – until now – could show her dog love only on weekends, when her daughter Tara visited her with her beloved Rupert. Alan’s dog show career will be taken care for by famous Afghan handler, winner of uncountable BISes, open, altruistic and sympathetic – Salla Suokas, and also the marvellous woman thanks to who all this became real – Meri Pakarinen – tremendous handler, wonderful person and co-owner of one of the most wanted sires nowadays, father of our litter, Marcus.
Dear all – thank you for being with us, and for all! It was great to meet you all, spend many wonderful moments with you, have delicious meals, and experience adventures together! We will think about you all warmly and we hope we will have further occasions to meet and share our passion. We are happy that our puppies are in your homes. We wish you wonderful time with Dogarium whippets!
