On the Easter weekend 2013 we went to South Poland Tarnow, where we mated Aranea with BSZS VA1 Orion Mavic Poland. Bella's beautiful daughter Aranea, our beloved Champion. When we received very sad news about Aranea, then we really didn't know what to do next. So Bella has gone years ago and Aranea has joined her mother over the Rainbow bridge. And one of our greatest losses forever will allways be our beloved Barbaricus, who was stolen from us. So there was nothing left for us and everything was gone forever. Bella's legacy has diminished and lost forever. We felt total emptiness and sadness.
Someway we felt Aranea gave us a huge kick, and so we made a decision to start all over again. Totally new females and males, and really a fresh start. So on the Easter weekend 2019 we made a round trip journey across Poland, in total of over 4000km drive. Before that we made multiple contacts, so at the end of this journey we would have three new females and one new male for our kennel. These beautiful Polish super dogs with our Estonian male Aussenhaus Ramses makes our fresh new start. RK Kennel's NEW ERA.
Our webpage content has been renewed, like everything else. In the future our puppies parents will be 100% our own dogs living here with us. Our foreign friends appreciate us so much more than in Finland all together, so hopefully our visits to Finland have reached to a final end. We will never forget and never forgive the Finnish German Shepherd Association, what they did to us in 2014. Where did they forget about fair / honorable / respectful behavior? Or how many times just before award ceremony they've ripped off the encraved plate off the trophy? On the other hands, sincere thanks to the Finnish German Shepherd Association for giving us the huge impetus to move our gaze abroad. We will never return to Finland, so they don't need to worry about us. We do like to visit dog events and dog shows and German Shepherd breed speciality shows, but we do that in countries where we are appreciated. We are very happy and super proud of our foreign friends. And believe it or not, but they often say, that they don't believe we are from Finland.
After all, we do things our own Renegade way and we do break the expectations of others, as we don't do things like everyone else does. Unfortunately making our own path doesn't please everyone. But we are 100% Knights by the heart, because everything we do, we do fair with honor and all by the rules.
We are the Renegade Knights. "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Once again, we have sent small Christmas gifts to our beloved RK family.
Although we don't see everyone so often, but we always remember <3 "Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. - Calvin Coolidge"

We needed only one CAC for Messi and that's exactly what we got. So perfect day in Eckerö. We don't go to dog shows, if there isn't any purpose for a champion title. And shall we say, that this judge was extremely hard to German Shepherds and that makes us even more proud of our super dog Messi. "Aim high. The higher, the better. And don't let anything stand in your way."
Support, help and lot's of TLC is always available for our RK family.
