S litter (DOB 12 June 2001)

I chose Miska to sire Lempi's second litter (her first litter was registered under the Jäkäläkummun prefix) because of his breed type and pedigree. There were five puppies in the litter, however, one was born with a cleft palate and had no tail or anus, and was therefore put down immediately. The entire litter had numerous health problems, the origin of which remained a mystery. Only one of the puppies lived a normal, relatively healthy life. This litter was kept out of the breeding pool.

L litter (DOB 1 Aug 2004)

I wanted to breed Hertta to Orso-Farm Dielku (pet name Tilkku) because of his interesting pedigree. What is more, at the time it looked as though the bloodlines of Tilkku's sire Rurru would become extinct among the breeding stock in Finland (later on, Tilkku sired a number of litters). Three puppies were born, however, one was born with its intestines out and was put to sleep. The lines of this litters are present not only in Finland but in different parts of Europe in the form of Leijonamieli's progeny. His sister Lounatuuli, who I placed out on breeding terms, unfortunately never conceived.

T litter (DOB 22 Nov 2005)

I went to see the litter born to Lempi's brother Jäkäläkummun Esim-Erkki and Jenni before they moved to their new homes and fell in love with them. Later on I tried to breed Hertta to one of the three brothers (Tupu), however, she did not conceive easily and we did not get any puppies. So when my friends promised I could borrow their Fidelis Unikko for a litter, I knew I wanted to use one of the brothers and this time it was Lupu. Unfortunately the prcd-PRA gene test was not commercially available when I was planning this litter (it was launched when the puppies were a few weeks old). Later on, the bitch puppy that I placed out on breeding terms (Tupasvilla) turned out to be prcd-PRA affected. The bloodlines of this litter are carried on in central Europe.

K litter (DOB 18 Aug 2006)

I acquired Ronja when it was getting obvious that I was not going to have anything out of Lempi to continue breeding with. Leijonamieli from the L litter had turned into a lovely specimen of the breed, so I was glad I happened to have a suitable bitch for him (especially when it later on turned out that I would not get any puppies out of his litter sister Lounatuuli). Unfortunately the bitch line stopped as Ronja's only daughter Kesäheinä only ever gave birth to one single male puppy, however, Kodinonni has done his share of passing on the genes of this litter.

M litter (DOB 1 July 2007)

The extremely happy and easy-going Mimmi (Lapinlumon Lapinloru) came to me from Denmark for a litter. I decided to breed her to the equally happy and easy-going Robbie (Jäkäläkummun Jänkäjustus) that I had known ever since he was a puppy. The bitch line from this litter did not get very far either, when Mimmi's only daughter Mielitietty only had two sons.

P litter (DOB 12 Jan 2008)

I was offered to get a litter out of the beautiful and extremely typey Tanhu (Orso-Farm Tanhuvilla). Things did not go quite as planned when the sire of the M litter (Jäkäläkummun Jänkäjustus aka Robbie) managed to mate Tanhu (who was not even health tested at the time) while she was just a couple of days into her season. I was out of town on a business trip and the dog sitter had left the door separating the two ajar. A mere two minutes later Robbie had done the deed - there are indeed male dogs that are too good at mating! I witnessed all of this myself as I happened to be on the phone with the dog sitter when it all happened. As a quick fix I decided to breed Tanhu also to Orso-Farm Atninbeaska (pet name Peski), a stud dog I had been planning to use for another bitch. Tanhu was health tested in due course (fortunately with good results), and the puppies were naturally DNA tested, all turning out to be sired by Peski. Two dogs from the litter have carried the line on.

N litter (DOB 10 Apr 2009)

Fidelis Unikko (pet name Oona) was an excellent mother and when Tupasvilla, my pick bitch from Oona's previous litter, was excluded from breeding because of her prcd-PRA affected status, I asked my friends if I could get another litter out of Oona. Once given the go-ahead, I decided to breed her to the furball of a dog called Dagolas Duutsoni. So far Neidonkenkä and Noitarumpu both have one litter each.

J litter (DOB 20 Apr 2009)

When the breeder of Jäkäläkummun Jasmilla (pet name Moona) said he was unable to breed from her and asked me whether I was interested, I did not hesitate to jump at the chance, especially considering Moona's co-owner is a childhood friend of mine and I had known Moona ever since she was a baby puppy. I had tried to breed Lounatuuli to Dagolas Bullero earlier, however, we never got any puppies so I thought why not breed Moona to him instead. Moona is not a particularly large bitch and as she was carrying a big litter, her uterus muscles were already stretched to the limit and there was no room for contractions. So she had to undergo a C-section (my first ever) due to primary uterine inertia. There were seven puppies, however, one of the bitch pups tilted her head back, whined constantly and would not suckle, so she was given sleep the next day. The overall health of this litter leaves a lot to be desired and the litter is excluded from further breeding.

F litter (DOB 23 Apr 2009)

For Kesäheinä (pet name Kukka), I chose Black Blossom Mr Unique who is sired by the fantastic Tarukallion Noppe. Unfortunately Kukka was bred a tad too late and ended up carrying just one single puppy. The puppy was huge and would not come out on its own, so again a C-section was in order. The resulting singleton has sired three litters so far.

Y litter (DOB 11 Feb 2011)

It is no secret that Kivimarjan Suopunkityttö, a Staalon Usvapeikko daughter, is one of my great favourites, so I wanted to breed one of my bitches to "Ransu" and the choice fell on Mielitietty (pet name Miina). It turned out to be a difficult whelping as Miina only managed to whelp one puppy by herself, after which a C-section was necessary. Three out of the five remaining puppies were dead by the time we got them out, and one was very weak and died the next day. So the result of the difficult whelping was two healthy, vital male puppies.

Ä litter (DOB 15 July 2012)

I had seen the Lempi great-grandson Viksalan Rabas (pet name Mikki) as a youngster and he stayed in the back of my mind, however, his first two eye tests came back with suspected cataracts. However, two later consecutive eye tests came back as perfect, so Mikki was cleared for breeding. I happened to be looking for a stud dog for Neidonkenkä just as the second clear eye test appeared in KoiraNet and my search was thereby over. Four puppies were born, however, unfortunately one bitch puppy got into a weak shape at the age of about one month and was eventually put down (see details in the table below). One of the male puppies had health problems as well but he got better for a while, however, unfortunately it was only temporary and he had to be put to sleep at the age of six months (autopsy report linked below). Unfortunately we never found out what the root cause of the problems was. The genes of this litter are preserved in Ähäkutti's progeny.

K2 litter (DOB 9 Aug 2013)

Kielo's breed type is pretty much what I want from the Finnish Lapphund, so I decided to put type to type and bred her to Murustiinan Aamos even though I was not particularly familiar with the dogs in his pedigree. Conformation-wise I indeed got pretty much what I expected, however, this was destined to remain Kielo's only litter because of epilepsy and other problems in her progeny. Sadly the only male puppy (brown wolfsable in colour) was stillborn, however, one of the bitches has carried the line on by having a litter.

V litter (DOB 16 July 2014)

Sylvi was bred to an older gentleman Kuurakuonon Caskikettu, who had only sired one litter previously. His pedigree is quite different from today's pedigrees and contains some of my old favourites (such as Jäkäläkummun Balddonas and Orso-Farm Runo). I hope this litter will contribute to the Finnish Lapphund gene pool at some point.

L2 litter (DOB 22 Feb 2015)

Plan A was to breed Vuokko to an old male with no previous progeny, however, that went out the window and so did plan B as well for various reasons. So plan C was put to use and Vuokko was bred to a stud dog that I had planned to use for her some time later. Kontioharjun Kaamos had the looks and a pedigree to match - his major "fault" was his young age. The health test results of this litter have been excellent so far, and there has been some success in the show ring as well. Many dogs from this litter already have progeny of their own.

A litter (DOB 3 July 2015)

Ever since Sylvi was a puppy, her co-owner Matleena dreamed of one day breeding Sylvi to her own Sulo (Jäkäläkummun Ällintälli). The dogs thought the time was ripe in the summer of 2015 (even though we human beings thought they could have waited a bit longer!). The illicit romance resulted in a litter of five puppies, lovely both in looks and in temperaments. My role was just to take care of marketing and registering the puppies, everything else was done by Sulo and Sylvi's family.

U litter (DOB 21 Mar 2016)

At some point I was going through Hertta's close relatives in the hope of bringing some of her lines back into my breeding programme and thought of Orso-Farm Kobmi, a dog that I had known ever since he was a youngster. Fast forward a while and Miska was eye tested clear, so Papu's boyfriend-to-be was thereby decided. Despite his best effort Miska did not manage to mate Papu (one of the few downsides of using an old virgin male), so after much deliberation I ended up going for artificial insemination so as not to waste the genes of an otherwise excellent dog. I got three lovely puppies and am eagerly waiting to see how they turn out.

H litter (DOB 10 Oct 2016)

Halla's owner wanted her to have a litter, so we agreed on the stud dog and decided to register the litter under my prefix. Lady luck was not on our side with this litter: after Halla was mated it turned out that the stud dog we had chosen for her throws poor elbows, and the whelping itself was a bit of a nightmare. Halla gave birth to her first three puppies without any problems, however, had to be assisted by a vet to get the remaining three out. The fourth puppy was stuck in the birth canal in the breech position and had to be pulled out with forceps. Unfortunately he lost the tip of his tail and a toe in the process, and as the puppies grew and started walking, we found out that another male puppy had damaged his toes during the whelping as well (he had two dislocations and two fractures in his left hindfoot). And then, on top of everything else, Halla was poorly and had to go on antibiotics for a while. Hopefully things will go better from now on!

I litter (DOB 24 June 2017)

Varpu's owner was hoping to get a litter out of Varpu and while planning the litter, we agreed to register it under my prefix (just like Halla's litter last year). I had been planning on using Nasti at stud for a long time and now the opportunity finally presented itself. The pedigree of this litter is very special to me in that it has home-bred dogs in three generations on the sire's side (and two on the dam's side), making this the first fourth-generation Cantavia litter. What is more, the pedigree combines my very first Lappies Lempi (maternal great-great-great granddam) and Hertta (paternal great-great granddam). Unfortunately Varpu had to undergo a C-section and we lost three puppies out of six in the process.
