My name is Tiia Hämäläinen, year -91 birth and I'm from Finland. I have been love with animals since I was young. When we haven't own dog, me and my friend were allways walking neihborhoods dogs. I have taken care of dogs and teach them, not only my dogs and I like to teach people. Now are training in AST (Agility Sport Team) agility, obedience, sometimes on my own searching and tracking. Dogs belongs in my life, I can't live without them, there are more positive sides than negative.

Ruuti is energetic dog. He loves eating, running and working, like bordercollies also. He is crazy about balls.

Ruuti have teached me many things, living with Ruuti is not so easy than with Rasmus. You can't spoil and be so nice to him. In obedience our problem is that Ruuti likes to use voice in working. Agility have been so different than with Rasmus and it's so many thing that affects on course and many there is timing problems to handler.

Rasmus is easy at home, he likes sleeping in couch or bed. In out he manage run hours with his fauvorite toys: frisbee or something else. And agility, obedience and tracking exercises he likes a lot. Now Rasmus is spending his pensiondays and living with my mum and dad.

In memoriam Vili 19.7.1999- 7.12.2010

Name: FIN Ch Retain Cara-Van "Vili"
Breed Norwichterrier
Color: Pink
Breeder: Dorrit & Claes Lindquist, Finland, Espoo
Owner: Tiia Hämäläinen, Finland, Espoo

Dad: Pathwork Defrost
Mother: Jaeva Merry Maid

Vili was like terriers also: stubborn, know he's place in our crowd and brisk. He didn't fear anything, Vili can bluster to Great Dane, but he was not angry. Vili allways has been friendly to all dogs and people. Vili is my "mother's dog", he didn't want to go out with me, if mum is home.

When Vili was under 3-years old we went in dog shows. And when Vili was 3-year old he came Finnish Show Champion. Once he came in group competition (BIS), was best of breed, best of opposite sex.
