Welcome to Our Website

Updated January 1, 2012

This is our site where you can get to know me and my Belgian Sheepdog, Groenendael, Czarina. We compete in obedience, and the goal is for her to one day become a Norwegian Obedience Champion. Every now and then, we pop by the show ring too, and we do tracking just for fun.

This website is dedicated to my previous Groenendael, Sari. You can read more about her under “Dogs”. Sari and Rina are both from Finland, and I would really like to thank Carola at Kennel Donatrix and Hanna at Kennel Tendance for breeding these two wonderful dogs. Thank you so, so much.

I hope you enjoy your stay here. And we appreciate every paw print you leave in our guestbook, so don’t be shy :) Please do not borrow any material from my site without getting my permission first.

Best regards,
Therese & Czarina
