OUR LIFE WITH KAIJA - BY CLAIRE BOND, OWNER.
I cant get over how fast the last 3 years have gone. It is 3 years ago that we first went to Liz's and meet these stunning dogs for the 1st time. We had to wait a while for a puppy but it was worth it as we were rewarded with our beautiful Kaija. We have done a bit of showing with her, our best result was a 2nd at crufts in 2011 coming in behind her sister Fiia. Some of the best things we have done as a family Kaija has brought about. We all go for walks on a Sunday afternoon be it just down to the park or a walk around the local country park she is also the mascot for Jamie's rugby team. Kaija is so good with our boys she loves to play with them and there is no better sight then the 3 of them running round the garden playing together. Lots of our friends have children that are not that confident with dogs and all it takes is 5 to 10 minutes with Kaija and they are playing with her. Kaija likes nothing better then jumping up on the sofa (something I said that she wasn't to do) and having a cuddle of a night with us when we are watching the TV. I am sure that if I let her she would be upstairs on the bed with us and no that is the one rule that I will not break though if the boys leave the gate open she will sneak up stairs and sit on the top step to make sure that they are alright and have gone to bed.
