With Landseers since 1977
The first dog which I remember from my childhood was the Bullmastiff Betty. My family had always had dogs, the breeds were among others Finnish Hound, wire-haired Fox Terrier, German Wire-haired Pointer, German Shepherd, and later also Dandie Dinmont Terrier and Finnish Spitz.
In 1976, a Sealyham Terrier named Mökö Möttönen entered our family. A Sealyham has been by my side since then. The first Landseer - one of the first two Landseer's ever in Finland -, Mosse, came to my mother Hilkka Ojala (kennel Murmelin) in 1977. I have been around Landseers ever since.
I got my kennel affix in 1985 and bred my first Landseer litter in 1989. In 2000, my breeding was awarded with the Finnish Kennel Club's Vuolasvirta prize No. 456. In addition to Landseers, I have also bred one litter of Finnish Spitz, Sealyham terriers and Petit Basset Griffon Vendéens.
