31.05.2013 - Ugly rumours spreading

Some people have began posting on certain internet forums that I breed just for money and that they would not go to me for a puppy (I will not go into detail as to who and where). I was deeply sad to read this - and I am sure it would hurt any true sheltie lover to be called a puppyfarmer. It is even more sad that the person who posted this was clearly misled and did not properly understand the letter posted on this website regarding Mrs. Bendelow and her terrible behaviour. The main aim of the letter was to stop Mrs. Bendelow from hurting any more animals and not about getting back money paid for Pinto. He is a dear member of my family now and I would never return him to that horrible person.

If somebody thinks I do this just for the money, perhaps they should consider the fact that I have had two litters in 10 years of having shelties and that I have recently refused to sell a puppy after a 18 hour trip to the possible new owner because her dogs were living almost exclusively outside. My matings have been aimed at producing only healthy puppies because I deeply care about the breed. My website with a list of affected Czech shelties shows that health is very important to me. At the same time, however, I do not overcharge for healthy puppies like some other kennels do.

Giving the wrong ideas or straight-out lying is very easy anonymously on the internet. I invite anyone to visit me to see how my shelties live (at home, on my bed) and to get to know me in person.

Apparition Shetlandska hvezda has a new home near Prague, we'll see how he does at dog shows. For those wanting a puppy, we still have Aydindril Shetlandska hvezda available. A smaller dog but very fast, CEA DNA normal.

We have been to a lot of shows lately. In Poland (September 18th, judged by Malcom Hart - UK), our puppies Altamira and Aramis were Very Promissing with Amethrickeh Apparition winning the open class and finishing the championship of Poland!

At a regional show in Prague (October 1st, judged by Ovesna - CZ), the same puppies were again Very Promissing with Amethrickeh Apparition winning the title Regional winner. Our veteran bitch Cheyla Gold also won the veteran class.

And finally, at special show near Chropyne (September 10th, judged by Semik Mariola - PL), our Amethrickeh Apparition won the title Winner of the special show. Our little black devil Linda (Yollinda ze Sedlmajerovy vily) was excellent and deemed good for entry into breeding programme.

July 4th, 2011 - Clinical eye examination

Our puppies underwent the clinical eye examination earlier today with a very encouraging results: all puppies are CEA/KAT/PRA clear. We have repeated the clinical test also with their mother, Patty Gabriela, with the same result. We are sorting through the photos of the puppies and will post some more soon. In the meantime, enjoy this video of puppies outside: YouTube.

June 20, 2011 - The more successful of our attempts at group photos :)

June 16, 2011 - A few new photos...

June 10, 2011 - Exploring!

The puppies are mastering their walking skills and are exploring what lies beyond their sleeping box. In the photo below, Altamira tries to drink but she does not yet know how :)

July 6th, 2011 - Changes in CEA DNA testing

Due to aggressive PENDING patent-enforcement behaviour by a certain genetic lab that wishes to control the dog DNA testing market, we are forced to DNA-test our litter A for CEA only "unofficially" - under the blanked "for research purposes". We do not wish to support the behaviour due to which several major (and popular) European genetic labs had to stop performing "commercial" CEA DNA tests for a fair price. Therefore, while the results WILL BE ACCURATE AND TRUSTWORTHY, in official paperwork, the puppies have to be marked as "untested". The prices charged by the PENDING patent holders are extortionate and we will not submit to such practices. It is a clear signal that for some people, profit is more important than health.

If you know of a laboratory which still performs CEA DNA tests for a fair price, please let us know! We will gladly spread the information to as many breeders as possible!

July 5th, 2011 - More puppy news

First of all, thank you everyone for your congratulations!
Litter A - New photos (see individual puppy profiles). First worming done today. Altamira is opening her eyes, the boys are taking a little longer. If you are interested in getting a puppy, please email us at [email protected]. More info in the PUPPIES section.

Litter B - We have found a suitable father for our litter B. Photos and more information soon. Needless to say, it will be a very interesting mating with the father from abroad.

Our little black devil Linda (YLLINA ze Sedlmajerovy vily) celebrated her 1 year yesterday by being as naughty as ever :) We love her and wish her many successes!

May 27th, 2011 - PUPPIES ARE HERE

We have 4 beautiful sheltie puppies. All information here: litter A.

May 17th, 2011 - Health pedigree

For our litter A, we have prepared a health pedigree. You can see it here.

April 4th, 2011 - Great news

We have visited our vet on Tuesday and we have some great news. Our little Patty will have 4, maybe 5 puppies. We are really happy and excited and we hope everything will go smoothly and that the little shelties will be healthy. We will consider selling a puppy internationally, please contact us for further details. Puppies will be sable only and come with excellent pedigrees. More information about Litter A here.

Plus a nice photo of our Amethrickeh Apparition taken during our geocaching trip to "Kacina".

March 29th, 2011 - Patty has been mated!

While watching the online stream from Crufts 2011, we regretted not going to the UK. Our little Patty Gabriela probably heard us because she went into season right on Monday. 7 days later, we were enjoying beautiful and warm sunshine in Yorkshire while visiting Karmidale Monet, the father of our first litter. The mating was successful and we are eagerly waiting for the results of the sonograph.
Many thanks to Maureen Bywater for a beautiful visit

Shelley, UK

Our original first litter mothered by Bayle Blue z Bozi zahrady has been moved to autumn 2011. We are looking for a suitable father - tricolor DNA clear dog without American blood.

One of the local collies and shelties club held once again a year long competition DOG OF THE YEAR. Here are the results:

Ich. Amethrickeh Apparition - 1st place (adult), big congratulations!

YLLINA ze Sedlmajerovy vily - 2nd place in puppy class out of 10 other dogs and bitches

VetCh. Charlota Gold ze Sedlmajerovy vily - 1st place in veteran class. I only wish I could get health along with the title and the certificate as our oldest bitch is in need of it. This title concludes her whole show career although we were never able to get the last CAC for the Czech champion title. We love her very, very much. We really enjoyed our shows together and we hope we will be able to still care for her for yet a very long time (she is 10 years old).

October 12rd, 2010

We are celebrating two anniversaries today. The first one is Pinto's birthday (he is 5) and the second one is the anniversary of the founding of Shetlandska hvezda kennel back in 2004.

Our crossbreed Spagetka (or Spaghetti) was very successful last weekend when she won the title "Mladoboleslavsky vorisek 2010" - the best in show at a crossbreed show in Mlada Boleslav. Our Xsara, the least sheltie-like sheltie of our shelties, scored a second place in the category "non-pedigree dogs". It was a great day out, plenty of sun and we had lots of fun! Photos below.

October 3rd, 2010

We have a new addition to our group of shelties - a beatiful tricolour bitch. More info later!

The father of our 2011 litter will be Karmidale Monet with Tachnamadra JW.

September 15th, 2010

At a club show in Chropyne, our Pinto was awarded Excellent 1, CAC and won The Best Dog of Chropyne! Our Pilinka also scored in the veteran class, getting Excellent 1 and also the Best Veteran award! We are very happy!

We would like to alert you to the following Facebook page which uncovered a case of abused shelties in the USA. Please join, spread the word, help if you can! Thank you! Facebook page here

September 6th, 2010 - Club show in Pardubice, Puppies and more!

A special club show took place on Semptember the 4th in Pardubice, judged by Liz Beth C Liljeqvist from Sweden. Pinto won the open class against 9 other dogs and has therefore completed requirements to become a Czech Champion! Moreover, he won the "Best Sable Sheltie" competition which took place after judging!

In the veteran class, our Pili was second because due to her age, her movement is not as good as it used to be. Other than that, the judge liked her very much. Thanks to everyone for your help at Pardubice and in Bratislava! I couldn't have done this without you!

Hopefully we will go to UK to mate our youngest bitch Patty Gabriela Smaal Kim. See the "puppies" section!

On 21st and 22nd of August, Pinto won at a show in Bratislava 2x CAC and 2x res. CACIB (after BOB dog) and has therefore completed requirements to become a Slovak Champion!! We are very happy despite the fact that Pinto is no longer available for mating due to his hip score.

June 22nd, 2010 - Clinical eye examinations

We have been to MVDr. Beranek's clinic today in Pardubice and are happy to announce that the newest sheltie generation is without illnesses!

May 17th, 2010 - Shows and more

New development in the "Pinto" case. We have a statement from the "Klub chovatelu kolii a sheltii" club (basically saying they recognize the alterations on Pinto's ears). Furthermore, we have received a written court expert testimony from MVDr. Lubomir Siroky (who is also the president of the Bohemian and Moravian Cynological Union) confirming that alterations have been made. We are now ready to send a formal complain to the UK.

On a more positive note, here are some new pictures of our Patty Gabriela Smaal Kim.

Show results:
May 15th - 50th club show of "Klub chovatelu kolii a sheltii" (Repec, CZ), judge: Margaret Lambert (UK)
Amethrickeh Apparition - Excellent 3 out of 7, open class

Here are some prizes from this weekend and also a scan of our oldest bitch's hips - not looking so good with a round anomaly on the right. If anyone has any idea what it might be (our vets are clueless), please contact me ASAP.

And here is a new, lovely photo of our Patty Gabriela Smaal Kim. She is growing up to be a beautiful bitch.

November 25th, 2009 - Puppies and more news

Our PATTY GABRIELA Small Kim and Amethrickeh Apparition are going to have puppies next year. We expect a litter well suited for dog shows as both of the parents have an excellent pedigree. More about them in the puppies section.

Charlota Gold ze Sedlmajerovy vily or "Pilinka" as we call her was awarded Slovak Veteran Champion and Club Champion titles. We are so happy and proud!

Amethrickeh Apparition or "Pinto" won a CACIB at the Prague International Dog Show! He has been very successful so far and we hope to have interchampion title by the end of 2010 :)

October 12th, 2009 - World Dog Show 2009 and other shows

At a club show on October 3rd, "Pinto" was Excellent 1 and was awarded CAC and "Pilinka" in veteran class Excellent 2. Judged by Eva Fialova (CZ).

Unfortunately the World Dog Show was a big disappointment. Bad organization and a last minute judge change in the open class (from a UK judge to a Romanian one) were most unfortunate. "Pinto" was Very Good and so was "Pilinka". Judged by Muntean Petru (RO) and female veterans by Ligita Zake (LV).

The next day, our luck improved significantly at National Dog Show again in Bratislava. "Pinto" was Excellent 1 and was awarded CAC and BOB (our first one)! "Pilinka" was Excellent 1 and therefore fulfilled the requirements for Slovak Veteran Champion! We are very happy with this and it was a nice gift for Pinto's birthday today (12.10.)

Pinto will be available as a stud dog after the November show in Prague.

Heather, thanks so much for Pinto! He is really great and we love him very much!

September 16, 2009 - More shows!

We were quite successful in the past two weeks, despite several health problems.

August 22, 2009 - Regional show in Brno

We were very successful at the Regional Dog Show in Brno this weekend. Pinto (Amethrickeh Apparition) was Excellent 1 and won the titles Class winner, Regional winner and BIG (Best in the 1st FCI group)!! Gabi (PATTY GABRIELA Smaal Kim) was also Excellent 1 and earned the title Junior class winner. The weather was supposed to be terrible but in the end it wasn't so bad and we are very happy we didn't stay at home!

We have a new dog! His name is Amethrickeh Apparition but we call him Pinto. He is a 5 year old dog from breeding station Amethrickeh in UK (Ms Heather Bendelow). He will be available for mating later this year!

June 19, 2009 - Shows in Slovakia

We attended two dog shows at the beginning of this month. Unfortunatelly due to unforseen events we were unable to attend a third one in Senec. On Saturday and Sunday both Charlota Gold and Patty Gabriela were competing. Although Patty Gabriela was less than happy to be at a dog show (it was her first time), we returned successful. Photos courtesy of CHS KK Jantárová hviezda. Charlota Gold earned BIS VETERAN title on Sunday. (Charlota Gold, Patty Gabriela)

May 9, 2009 - Our new hope

We have a new bitch in our kennel!

A bitch named Patty Gabriela Smaal Kim made me change my mind about buying a Czech shetland sheepdog. She is so sweet! She comes from a very interesting breeding and we place a lot of hope into her. Thanks to everyone for your support! See you at the dog shows!
