Our family has had Keeshonds as pets for over 30 years. We have had the fortune of owning healthy Keeshonds with great coats and adorable personalities: kind, wise, obedient and affectionate. All our Keeshonds have their characteristic personalities that make them unique individuals.
This page is a tiny shrine for the Keeshonds of the past.


 
   

"Mörkö", Yllabo Godiva, 1988-2001
Sire: Gavimir Dolphin "Dudde"
Dam: Solvargens Askunge.
Breeder: Gunlög Krook.

Our very first Keeshond was
"Maissi", Mäntyrinteen Marijke, 1972-1982
Sire: Kitron Rami, Dam: Mäntyrinteen Sanny.
Breeder: Pihlaja.
 
   

Mörkö was a large, richly coated bitch with good bone structure, but her body could have been slightly more square. Her name "Mörkö" means "monster" in Finnish (the Groke in Moomin characters) although her character was particularly kind and affectionate. People found this contradiction funny and the whole town - particularly children - learned her name and people started to call all Keshonds "monster dogs". Mörkö lived a long and healthy life accompanying us in all our hobbies, trekking, hiking and prospecting in Lapland.

 
Maissi was the lineage of Alkestitan kennel dogs. She was beautiful English-type Keeshond with square body. Old photos reveal that she had rather big ears compared with current Keeshonds. One of her sisters had incorrect colour: light brown coat with chocolate brown dark areas. Her lineage is no longer found among Finnish Keeshonds.

 
     
   




"Hippu", Yllabo Melanie, 1994-2006

Hippu was an American style "toy dog" with short, round body and exceptionally thick coat for a bitch. Unfortunately she hurt her knee in an accident when she was less than a year old. It was operated, but her gait never quite recovered and her weak knee prevented her from carrying a litter.
