I wanted a breed which would have the positive characteristics for dog activities like obedience.
I also wanted a dog that would be healthier than a German Shepherd Dog,
and also a bit more active and energetic. I chose a Border Collie.
I kind of knew what to look for.
I contacted several breeders to get an overall picture.
It became clear that only a few kennels breed working Border Collies in Finland.
I also wanted to have a dog whose parents would preferably been active either in dog sports or in herding.
I started to wait for a puppy from Kennel Tending in Finland.
Abba, "Mitzi" was born on March 25th 2002 in Sweden.
Her breeder is Ketty Myrtenkvist.
She has been Kennel Tending's brood bitch 18.5.2002-25.3.2007,
but nowadays she is mine and surely loved by me.
Abba's call name "Mitzi" comes after her grandmother INT OBCH NORD OBCH S WTCH GK VALLH PR
Young Pauls Mitzi-II who has been very successful in obedience.
Mitzi is also the name of the famous dolphin Flipper.
Mitzi came to Finland on May 18th 2002. Mitzi is a really joyful puppy.
I hope to have many pleasant years with Mitzi.
