My name is Kristina Holst, Kiia.
I have wanted to have dogs all my life.
I borrowed a german shepherd "Cheri" when I was a child and was not allowed to have a dog of
I bought my first own dog when i was 17 years old. Sunny was a rough collie and was the greatest
thing in my whole life. Sunny gave me 9 sunny years, before he got the melanoma in his ear. He got operated once, but the
cancer had spread, so he went to the dog┤s heaven.
A little while, when Sunny still was healthy and strong, I had two male dogs, but a terrible
fight of who was the boss, made me to give the new dog away to an other family. He had 14 great years at the Terrvik Manor
here nere by.
I have been taking care of some, so called, problemdogs (german shepherds, rotweilers, dalmatians...),
but I they all got new homes.
In 1997 I bought my own german shepherd "Cheri". She was the love of my life, but she had a
very bad mental problem nobody could control, she did not even allowe my children to come near me... She is in the dog┤s heaven.
It took me over 4 years to have the guts to take a new dog in to our lives.
But in 2002 I saw a Lagotto Romagnolo. The first impression was not good at all. I thought
it looked like a sheep...but the character of the lagotto swept the feets under me after a few hours.
Now my hunt after a lagotto started.
In November 2005 Olala da Tart˛fla came to us from Switzerland, but I still feel like having
room for more lovely working lagottos...
