Fast Pack's Whippets
Blog

Almost 4 weeks old...
November 11, 2009 by Sari & David


Again no post here for more than a month... the pups kept us busy ;)

The 5 pups are doing fine, they're growing quickly, today they were all more than 1.3 kg! They're starting to show a bit their character also, some being calmer and others being tough guys (or girls) :) Finka is still taking good care of them and Velka has started to play a bit.

The other good news is that they have all already found a home, one of them will stay with us.

New web address & litter plans
June 27, 2009 by Sari & David


The site has moved to this new address (http://www.fast-packs.net), after many years on a French free hosting site (free.fr) it was time to move to a bit more professional service :). So "Sari & David" becomes "Fast Pack's", the name of our kennel. For those who had links to our previous pages, no need to update anything, the links will be redirected automatically to the same page on the fack-packs.net domain.

The other big news is that Finka got a fiancé: Elmo aka Softrack Evolution. Below a picture of their "tuna" date last weekend in Hyvinkää:



We were thinking really long if starting to breed or not. When people have been asking if we were planning puppies with Finka, we were answering no, maybe... etc. because we wanted to think this throughly. We wanted to check this summers results still. We knew that our dogs can do more than they have showed, it was more that we should improve our trainers skills ;) The beginning of the season has gone well so finally we decided to go ahead with our plans.

Finka's and Velka's breeder, Radka, kennel Ticking Timebomb, has given us valuable news from european males. At the end, we didn't go that far cos we found a really good male from here :) Elmo is strong and fast. He has amazingly good character, he doesn't have hairlessness and the pedigree is interesting. We wanted to avoid some a lot used dogs. Elmo as well as Finka are good sized and we are hoping future puppies be also :) We are really excited with this combination and looking forward what it's going to become, if everything goes as planned...

We are waiting Finka's next heat some time in August so puppies would be moving to new homes in Xmas time, but they wont leave for Xmas presents :)

From now on, we are trying to keep this blog much more updated!
