Sad news
September 23, 2012 by Sari & David


That is already more than two months since the loss of Elmo (Softrack Evolution) after an accident during a track practice. Elmo was the father of our A litter and was only 8 years old. Softrack Evolution

Last week Yaga (Oochigea's Yadwiga) also left at 13 years old. Yaga was Finka's and Velka's mother (and the grand mother of our A and B litters). Oochigea's Yadwiga

All of us are missing them...

Great performances in Derby 2012
July 04, 2012 by Sari & David


Last weekend was the Finnish Derby (championships for 3 years old dogs) in Hyvinkää. From our team, Iivari (Fast Pack's Another Bolt) and Titi (Fast Pack's Against All Odds) participated and Tino (Fast Pack's Avalanche) took part to a graded race.

The day was successful :) Tino won his race and is finally back on track. Iivari and Titi finished both 3rd in final (respectively in males and females Derby) in tough company :)

WE'RE REALLY PROUD!

The puppies are born
June 19, 2012 by Sari & David


Finally the B-Litter is here! We got 4 beautiful girls yesterday evening. Unfortunately Velka had to go through C-section, but now everyone is doing fine :).

Individual pictures on puppies page.

Viimeinkin B-pentue on täällä! Eilen illalla syntyi neljä kaunista tyttöä. Valitettavasti Velka joutui sektioon mutta tällä hetkellä kaikki voivat hyvin :).

Yksittäiskuvat löytyy pentusivulta.

Hyvinkää & Åkers Kanal

Tähtisprintteri 2012 in Hyvinkää

Aina (Fast Pack's Arctic Hope) started her heat last Thursday, that is really a shame that we couldn't get the two girls of the litter to participate :(

Titi (Fast Pack's Against All Odds) made a good debut for her first title competition. Despite bad starts in both qualifications, Titi manage to rank herself third before the final. In the first run, she finished second behind the favorite Zaphira v.d. Spaarne Meute in 19.15 and then she even won her second qualification race in 19.02 :) In final she managed to grab the fourth place after leaving the box (after another bad start) behind the others.

Svenskt Whippet Derby in Åkers Kanal

JJ (Fast Pack's Atomic Bomb) was running today to qualify for the semi-finals of the Swedish Whippet Derby and he did it really well. Although JJ wasn't favorite (official tips weren't placing him in the first three dogs), he finished second in a very tight race!
