This adorable little girl, born on January 21st is looking for a new home. Penny is friendly, outgoing, and she loves to play with her sister and the other adults from our kennel.

She got a small abscess on her nose, now it looks like it’s permanently healed, but there will probably be a scar left.

If you are interested, please contact her breeder.

We just received some news from Finkies owners from Ontario.

On February 18th a Finnish Spitz meeting have been organized at SunnyBritook Park in North York Ontario. The meeting was a clear success: a great way to have fun and make new friends.

Our Ontario community is planning to organize this kind of event every 3 or 4 months. If you’re interested, feel free to have a look at the CFSC’s facebook page for more information regarding the next meeting.

Our reunion all started when I posted on the Finnish Spitz International Facebook page asking if there were any Finnish Spitz dogs near by.
I had been trying to reconnect with our dogs litter mates for a while to see if we could get together.

In the end there was actually a big response and ended up with 7 dogs coming out to meet up! We all were coming from different places and Cynthia Chiang suggested we meet at SunnyBrook Park in North York, as she had been there and it was a good middle ground meeting spot for the vast majority of people.

The dogs didn’t react as I expected, they didn’t seem to realize that they were meeting other Finnish Spitz, not to mention their own family members! For the most part they went off on their own to explore. We took pictures and all compared our dogs behaviour. We all found that our dogs all had a lot in common, including their quirks, tempers, sounds, likes and dislikes etc. Our meeting was about 2-3 hours long and by the end of it the dogs were all pooped!

We are hoping to do a quarterly meet-up from now on!
