About me

First years

Our little« princess« is five months old. She has been sharing her life with us for three months now. Klark has grown very attached to her, and we feel like she has always been with us.
Leia is quite a smart dog, which made some things easier and some more difficult. House-broken when she was three months and now at five she already understands most of the obedience commands. She has learned many things from the other residents of our house- the cats! How to climb on the dining table and eat everything you find on it, how to get to the delicious treats in the cats litterbox and how sleeping on the owners bed is normal. We patiently showed her that good dogs do not do this things... read more

 

All grown up!

There is absolutely no doubt our world changed by 180 degrees, when we decided to take Leia  in our home. This big lady with a large ego was about to win our hearts.

We were searching for a breeding female and a dog with working character. We found the litter and narrowed it down to two females. Later we decided for the one Ivana Lipenska (her breeder) was calling »grozna štenetka«. She was the most sweet »terrible puppy« I ever saw. Sure of herself, strong minded from the start, extroverted and to active to grow into a healthy swissy. But together we did it- she is clear for every skeletal disease. She is a happy pack member, by my side whatever happens...read more

K-LITTER, 26.5.2009

Sire: Multi Champion Klark (HDA ED0 OCDF) X

Bitch: Multichampion Princess Leia from Swiss Star (HDA ED0 OCDF)

 

The puppies have their own page "K litter". 

(The page will be updated with the help of the owners of the puppies- their texts and pictures. Let`s see if we can make this idea work)

 

Last pregnancy weeks in detail:

6th week: She is getting slow and the belly is getting bigger and bigger. We did the ultrasound at 30 days and easily saw eight puppies. I guess the real number will be a surprise. Hopefully everything will go well. She gained 9 kilos so far.

7th week: Heartbeats and movement. I can feel puppies move and Leia is getting more and more attached to me and people. She is doing great for a pregnant bitch, 12 days away from birth. She eats regularly and is very active. It is time to prepare our whelping box.

8th week: Princess-quarters done and now we are waiting. Leia is more restless and easily tired. She had two days of poor eating, but now she is back to normal.
She gained 12 kilos.

 

 

The puppies are here! On may 27th Leia gave birth to 8 lovely puppies. 4 males that we call Keeler, Krusher, Kodos and Kozak and 4 females by the names Kira, Keeley, Korina and Kamala. All puppies were of the same weight- a very balanced litter.
