Dam:Ch. Sulwyn Our Loyal Welsh

While everyone celebrated love on Valentine’s day our hearts broke in a thousand pieces. The day we knew would come hit us both hard... Ipi-Pippi,, PhiPhi - she had many names but one heart - and what a heart it was! Pippi never did anything wrong in her long life. She gave love, smiles and happiness wherever her paws went. The well-known wagging Pippi-tail has waved a final good bye and she leaves us heartbroken yet filled with gratitude for all the love and fun we have had with her over the years...


I'll love you, dear, I'll love you
Till China and Africa meet,
And the river jumps over the mountain
And the salmon sing in the street, 
I'll love you till the ocean
Is folded and hung up to dry
And the seven stars go squawking
Like geese about the sky.

W.h. Auden (1937)

"Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart."
- Irving Washington

"Prince... a true gentleman"

A true gentleman always charming and leading the girls astray. Prince was a companion in every sense of the word and has given us so many lovely memories during his life in Denmark. He had his winning ways all over the world from Scandinavia to America adding many titles to his name. There were many firsts with Prince, but one we will cherish forever was when he, as the first Welsh Springer Spaniel in Denmark, became Supreme Best In Show at the Spaniel Specialty …


He has also put his firm paw print in the lovely puppies he has sired many places in the world. We will miss his lovable personality, his fun and games on the fields and his head on our knees at night. Prince was co-owned with Kennel Don’s.


We would like to give our special thanks to Annica, Karin and Lena for entrusting us with Prince. Run free old chap, you were one of a kind and we will always remember you.

"Martta was a fantastic dog..."

Martta was a fantastic dog both at home as well as when showing. Her breeder Marjo Jaakkola, writes: "Martta had an immaculate show career in Finland before she moved to Denmark in 2007 to Kennel Churnwood. She won a gundog group in Finland and several other group placements. She won her first winner title at European Winner Show, but was often 'the bridesmaid' - she took 2nd best bitch placement at Norwegian Winner 2004, Finnish Winner 2005, Nordic Winner 2005, Finnish Winner 2006. She was a great brood bitch and had two litters in Finland with me, 13 puppies, 8 of whom became champions. She gave me the beautiful sisters; FIN CH EuJW-06 FINW-07 Benton Pearl at Wesper (TOP WSS in FINLAND 2007, BIS winner at Karkku Springer Specialty 2006) and S U(u) CH NordJW-05 SW-07 FINW-08 Benton Pep Talk who was Runner Up TOP WSS in FINLAND 2007, 2008, TOP WSS BITCH in FINLAND 2008, BIS winner at Karkku Springer Specialty 2009). In her second litter to Sh CH/SU(U) Ch Menstonia Marcel she produced INT & FIN & S(u) CH Benton Ugly Duckling (TOP WSS in FINLAND 2009), Int Ch Benton Under Oath. Most important of all she was a lovely gentle dog, with a super temperament and always gave her best in everything she did. She will be missed tremendously! “




Spring 2007 Martta moved to Denmark to join the Churnwood Team. Here she continued her winning ways and quickly gained her Danish-, Nordic- & International champion titles. Club champion was also swiftly added to her name. Copenhagen winner 07 and Nordic winner 07 & 08 – she kept going and ended 2008 with a great Top 3 All Spaniels! The same year she gave us our first litter after Am Ch Benton Ivy League. From this litter there are already two champions, making Martta the dam of 10 champions so far. In 2010 her show career ended with 1 x BIS2, 1 x BIS4, 1 x BIG4 og 4 x BOB.


We feel blessed for having her in our lives – we had many plans for the future and had hoped for many more years, but sadly it did not go that way. Rosettes and fine titles are one thing – but Martta won our hearts from day one. She was our companion and amazing friend, always happy, courageous and had a drive you could only dream of. She was gentle, devoted and loving. She will be missed indescribable for ever. We see a little of her every day in her daughters – Agnes when she effortless runs across the fields throwing a glance over her shoulder at us – Berta when she like her mother always is ready for fun and games – and Esther her granddaughter, who loves to be close to us and cuddle…Thank you Martta for enriching our lives with your presence.

Cashi's Fújiko Laika-Chan - "Sille"

Born: 22.12.2001 - 06.09.2009


Sire: DKCH, KLBCH - Fujijama Yukon Friend


Dam: DKCH - Cashis Laika


Sille was our first ”joint dog”. She has been with us from our apartment in Copenhagen to the new house in the countryside. Sille has taught us so many things and is the reason for Lotte taking her dog behaviour education.


Sille was a typical Shiba Inu – but defies the Breed standard, by being able to run off the lead most placed. She was very intelligent and loves to do tricks – the latest one being sneezing on command. 


She was a little dog with a big personality – our life was never boring with her in the house and we owe her a big thank you for the knowledge about dog behaviour we bit have today. The reason for Sille not being bred from was because she was a typical "Friday-dog" - being ill quite a lot. We have been greatfull for each day we had with her.


Evita Vom Haus Mühlenburg - "Frida"

Born: 25.09.2003 - 03.09.2004




Dam: Red And White's Wawa Dana V. Cheval


It was with great sorrow, that we had to say goodbye to our beloved Frida – who sadly only lived 11 months. She was so plagued with allergy, that we had to make the very hard and difficult choice to end her short life.


Frida was diagnosed with dust mite- (Atopi) and foodallergy which she had suffered under since she was a puppy. The allergy became so bad in the end, that her future quality of life would have been very deteriorated – in spite of the many treatments she undercame. We had contacted two veterinarians as well as a dermatology expert, who all said that Frida never would have a good life again.


 Since we have had a dog with allergy in our lives already, it is something we will focus a lot on in the future.
