spring -00 Mina moved from her breeder Kari Haave to kennel Meryl.
Mina needed some time to grow into her body and when this was done
it was a good time we had in the show rings. She got her CC:s during
June and July 2000 from the following judges:
Marianne Fürst Danielsson (S) SKK
- Tore Fossum (N) SKK
- Per Svarstad (S) SKK
- Helle Dan Pålssen (DK) FKK
for both Mina and me was on the Stockholm Nordic Winner show 2001. Out of 110
cockers, the judge Mrs Kari Granaas Hansen put us up for BOB. The
picture to the right shows the line up for the bitches where Mina
and I is third from back.
Mina was placed as third among the Group 8 dogs in the finals. The
picture below shows a part of the line-up from the group-finals.
This time the breeder Kari Haave showed her to Minas best.
had three litters, 2002, 2003 and 2005. In spring -02 she got a

limit. In the first litter she got five puppies of which three have
been showed with good results. One of the bitches, Travis Hold on
to Your Dreams is show champion in several countries and got the
title of World Winner in 2006. One of the dogs, Travis Fool for
You have gained a CC and the third puppy, a bitch, Travis Face the
Music have got several CK (ChampionQuality-awards).
second litter Mina got in 2003. In 2002 I was at Crufts and saw
GBShCh IrShCh Wilholme Mystic Memory of Wilmerella
(picture to the right). A blue dog similar in type to Mina.
So, Mina and I took the car through Europe and went for the boyfriend
in England. In this litter she had five puppies.
third litter came in 2005 with Ch Almanca Uncontrollable (picture
to the left) He is a son of Ch Travis Able and Willing. Four blue
roan puppies in this litter. One of them, Meryl Dreams vs Reality
(picture below), has gained a tracking Champion title and several
