Our new Bichon frise bitch was brought in september 2009 from Sweden Groomlines kennel, where was a litter of 3 bitches and 2 males. Thank you Jennifer for this beautiful bitch. She was named after Swedish princess Lilian. Lilian has got a strong pigmentation and a beautiful expression. Lilian is not so solidary member in herd and sometimes it feels she acts like a Swedish princess. Lilian has got a strong will to please so she's quick and intelligent learner.

Primadoro Creative Mind X Begbie Evergreen

Owner Saara Rajala

My co-owned bitch Begbie Evergreen "Bea" gave birth to two boys but the other one lived only three days. Fortunately Felix stayed with us and so he was named as Felix Fortunate. As the only puppy Felix got lots of human contacts. When someone came to visit us he was already on their laps. Felix turned out to be very open and confident bichon. It is easy to live and travel with him in shows.

Thank you Saara for trusting Felix to shows and taking such a good care of his coat!

FIN EE CH Sempre Libera Hands Free "Armi"

born 22.2.2005 - 24.11.2014
breeder Eeva Simola

FIN CH Jitterbop Hands Up X FIN CH Sempre Libera Or Nothing

Armi was shown quite rarely but she was often placed among four best bitches. After having her first litter Armi soon finished her championship title. She got her first cc in Tervakoski INT show where Bichon Frises were judged by internationally well known all rounder judge Paula Heikkinen-Lehkonen. Armi got her second cc just one week later from the german judge Martha Heine.

Armi finished her title 27.10.2007 in Lahti international show, where about 50 bichons were shown. The judge was famous Tibetanterrier breeder Tuula Plathan and she also gave Armi her first Cacib with BOS. It was really encouraging to hear her say about Armi: "We shall hear again about this bitch".

You left us many lovely memories. You were a friend on many journeys and warmed our feet during cold winter nights. We tried our best to take care of you but finally diabetes took your strenght. Rest in peace Armi.

"Mimmi" officially SWEET'N ROSY BETTI is our first Bichon Frisé. It was actually my husband's idea to get a dog who would take us for a walk every day. Mimmi is sturdy old type Bichon Frise who is more stubborn than any terrier and she still likes to be the boss on her older days. When Mimmi was a puppy she was like an overactive child and when she grew up she was still very active so this made her a very good jogging companion. Mimmi was the one who gave me the spark what comes on breeding. Her daughters (Ilona, Pipsa and Sohvi) turned out to be even better than their mother by their temperament and quality. Mimmi is pictured here at 10 years of age.
