The kennel is located about 1 km outside of Järpen i Jämtland with lots of garnden for the dogs
to run around and play on.
They have free access in the house and work well together, all of
our dogs like to sleep in the furnitures and we always have at least one sleeping in our laps.
The kennels origin, history
I've been raised with dogs my whole life, first a German Shepherd named Bitsie (born 1974) and after that we had a
lovely German Shepherd/collie mix Tschaika (born: 1986)
she opened the interest for the Collie breed.
But in 1994, I bought my first own dog when I was 18
years old togheter with my boyfriend (who's now also my husband), this dog
was a mixed breed - German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Border Collie &
Smålands Stövare, and he got the name "Dakari"
(Brown Daiquiri). With him I competed active for a few years in agility and he was also trained in obedience, tracking and pulling. Dakari was a dog who taught me so much about dogs very quickly and he was not what to be called a beginner's dog.
In 1995 I
bought my first purebred dog - a brown Newfoundland female named "Chow Bears Go West"
but when she was nine months old, at the same time as she was in her first
heat, we found out that she had a severe congenital heart disease and had to
be put to sleep only at nine month of age.
Later that year I bought my first Collie - "Wobbster's Born To
Be A Winner" and he was then followed by a female - Hillslättens Bless
My Mistake, who unfortunately had a hip fault grade 1 (she was however in
heat when she was X-rayed and if had I known better we would have x-rayed
her once more before she was returned). Due to this I bought a tricoloured
female "Madonna-Minett" she had the same
father as Ettan, but none of these have been bred on.
In 2000, I apply for my prefix and my
plan was to breed Collie Rough and the name I now have was my third hand choice.
I actual didn't really like it then but
as time went on I fell in love with this name - which for me means small,
though and happy dogs.
But the destiny wanted something different
for me when my first Phalène "Molargårdens
Glans" made an entrance in my life in 2001, he was bought as a 7 month old puppy from my sister.
It was not really ment for him to move in with us permanently but
Midas and I took immediate liking to each other and I could not see
Luckily my sisters are very understanding.
Midas won one CAC as a youngster and
trained in obedience, but we only did a handful of enterings because
my nerves are not made for obedience competition.
Midas was once again shown the summer of 2010, 9½ years old as a veteran
just for fun.
|He suprised me to sweap the floor with the younger
dogs and became 2nd best male with CAC two days in a row, and got his Swedsih Champion
title when he was almost 10 years old.
In 2003, we had the honor of taking a
little female Phalène on breeding terms for kennel Molargården. This
bitch "Johtina's Sunlight Of June" had one litter there - Molargårdens M-litter.
With Soya the huge world of dog show world opened for me and she became SCh
DKCh IntCh and Swedish Winner Of 2007, she was on The Swedish
Phalène society's top-to ten list for 3 years in a row.
Soya is the mother to our "B-litter"
and we kept a little female "Blast From
The Past", Diva is co-owned with kennel Lindilis.
Soya was retired from shows during 2008 since she wasn't so keen of it any longer.
Maybe she'll be taken out as a veteran.
|In 2005 I got the huge honor of having "Kecil
Real Blonde" from kennel Kecil in Denmark, when she was 13
Later that same year Phalène no. 3 arrived - Soya's son "Molargårdens
Muskot", he was actually going to move on to Denmark to
kennel Kecil, but for some reasons, Scottie stayed with us. He
has to this date won one CAC.
Blondie became mother to our firstborn puppies, "A-Litter" , where she gave us the lovely "Avalanche"
who looks much like her mother in both appearance and manner.
When Blondie had recovered from her
litter, her amazing journey towards the chamipon titles began.
of 2008 - she quickly conquered both the Danish and
Swedish Champion title and she's came quickly on the top ten list in both Sweden
Denmark, last mention she won over her very successfully and famous mother MultiCh. Kecil Odds On Chance -
and became Danish
Club Winner 2008.
2008 Blondie conquered many BOB in Denmark, Sweden and in Czech Republic,
5 CACIB in these three countries and she also quickly becam Danish Club Champion
(must win the champion class 5 times and get Club CAC).
She also became Nordic Winner 2008.
The same year (2008) "Avalanche"
succeeded in doing something none of my other females has done before, she became
BOS at HUND-08, one of the biggest dog show in Sweden, there she won both CAC
and CACIB from intermediate class. She also qualifed for Crufts 2009, which I choosed
not to travel to.
Bell is an remarkable little girl with
a huge spirit and fire, she's also very
love with herself, according to her no one are more beautiful than her and
this has resulted in a Bell-fanclub that is growing every day both here in
Sweden and also abroad - which makes me tremendiously happy. =).
I have gotten tons of emails from people wanting to buy her, but my precious Bell
will never be for up for sale. She owns my heart completely.
|During 2009 Bell became Swedish- and
Danish Show Champion and for the second year in a row she became BOS at HUND-09 and yet
again qualified for Crufts 2010.
But our trips with Bell during 2010 went the World Dog Show
in Denmark where she also got the Danish Club Champion title.
Later she was shown in Norway, on the same show in Norway she won the Norwegian CAC and
by this she became Norwegian- Nordic- and International Show Champion (C.I.B),
and her handler in Norways was Solveig Pyykkö, who I am
forever grateful for accepting to be Bell's handler and also to Bitte Sölvberg,
Kennel Zkarabi's who made this possible and took Bell with her at that show.
In march of 2009 "Soya"
got her last litter, or more right, her last pup with a very
scrutinized first genaration phalène male living in Denmark.
The pup was named "Causing
A Commotion" due to the circumstances of her birth, Mira was
the only pup and her birth weight was 240g, way too much for tiny
little Soya to
Soya had once earlier gotten a c-section so I decided to castrate her
Mira is a little clone from her mother and
also reminds a lot of her father, Mira is on breeding terms with a
family in the North of Sweden.
|In 2010 she became, on only 3 shows, appointed to 10:th most winning
Phalène females in Denmark.
And the summer of 2011 Mira became a double champion, Swedish and
Danish and is now only one CACIB away from having CIB title, but
that will have to wait since she'll hopefully be having her first
litter summer 2012.
With my E-litter, born 30 December 2009, I wanted to
try something new and for me also very exciting, therefor I mated Ch. Kecil
Real Blonde with a Papillon male, out of this I got three absolutely marvellous
puppies, both exterior and mentally.
I kept the only male, Energizer on breeding
rights and also one of the females, Eclipse (Misty) - both
these two pups became Papillons and nowadays our kennel has grown to breed Paps.
The only Phalène in the litter Earthquake moved,
as 1½ years old, to Kennel Vindarna Viskar and she'll be the foundation in their
Flame became Swedish Champion very quick in just a few shows at an age of only
2½ years old.
Misty was shown the very
first time spring of 2012 and got CC quality, became 2:nd in her class but sadly
not placed in the best bitch class. But she did over my expectation since the
competedors are thougher whitin the Paps.
The generations continues
Our first, second generation of Thairghay's Phalènes were born 21 December 2010 after
our amazing T. Avalache, sadly we lost both female
puppies due to lack of calcium with their mother at birth one died directly when they were born and the second we had to put to sleep when she was only 10 days old.
Left was a mahogany sable male who was named Final Fantasy, Khash almost became a clone of his mom
with the same gigantic ears as she has.
I decided to keep Khash at home and within the kennel, even if I actually don't want to have too many males at home, but this little crazy happy-go-lucky guy I just couldn't resist.
On his show debute in April 2012 he
amazed me and got CAC, became best male and BOS.
In May 2012, Khash's first offspring were born, 1 male and 4 females
at Kennel Alice In Chains, where we are very proud of getting a
female pup back, she will be named "Alice In Chains Bring Me Khash".
In Khash's second litter (same year) at Angelluck's kennel, we were honoured of being co-owners to a little cute white/sable female - "Angelluck's Ofelia Fantasy Girl".
In August 2012 I got to fullfill a long time dream of mine, to import my very first own male.
I flew down to Marlies and Yvonne Weber in Germany and brought back the most wonderful and charming
classic tricoloured boy named "Beltane Vom Schwabenhof", he's born in March 2012 and is out of Papillon lines.
His father is MultiCh. Starblaze Hugo Boss, one of Europes most winning Papillons during 2012 and numerous BIS-placed male from Australia which I have admire since I first saw him.
And when I saw pictures of Tooki spring 2012 I had no idea who his parents were, I only knew that he had stolen my heart.
Tooki has got every thing I ever wanted, he moves easy and free, and on top of that he's very genlte and kind to everyone, he's curious and always asking what we'll do next and does everything you ask him to do with a wag of his tail and what we call Tooki-love, meaning he does one thing, for example standing still for a photograph and then he just need to give you tons of kisses.
Since Tooki is completely non related to all my lines and also is after well-known bloodline through all the world, I am most curious ove what he can bring towards my next step in my breeding.
Tough desitions 2013
In the autumn of 2013 I took the tough desition to take a break in my breeding for a while. Maybe I come back again - maybe not. Only the future can tell.
- Why? Well, after two extremely complicated deliveries that almost took the lifes of my beloved females (and also a whole litter that died in the whomb where the mother could have died from the rotting pups), last litter became an all around the clock feeding for several weeks, so I truly feel that I need some time away to recharge and think that breeding is fun again.
Of course I love to have puppies, see how they grow and develope their own personality, but the memory of almost loosing three of my girls is to strong.
the autumn I desided to give the females I had on breeding terms to their holders, the co-own I have been persuade to keep on co-ownership (thanks my dear friends).
Two of my females that I have at home, I have retired early and yet another one will be retired shortly after she is borrowed by a friend that have been breeding Papillons for many years, there after she'll be retired.
That leaves me with only two girls that still are a bit too young at this point. - And there ends another chapter in the Thairghay's history.
My boys Scottie, Khash and Tooki (Frasse is sold) will be available in breeding for suitable females so don't hesitate to ask.
I got an offer from a sweet friend if I wanted to borrow her easy and free whelping bitch Zenitzias Alice In Chains for her last litter, she was mated with my Beltane vom Schwabenhof - a risky gamble since both of them are first generation Phalène, we got a small female puppy delivered in 20 minutes - the pup was named Lonestar and with her (what she ever desides to be) we open up our doors again for breeding.
|The rest is unwritten and
is in our future
