The first OES appeared in Togliatti in 1993 when S. Ivanov imported RED WOOD ARNEL from Moscow. Unfortunately Arnel is already on “Rainbows Bridge”, but we are obliged to her by the occurrence of the Togliatti’s family of an old english sheepdog.

At the beginning of 1996 V. Orlov imported KARUND ZHAKLINE. And the first OES litter has came in Togliatti from GULIVER HAKAR and our ARNEL. All puppies of that litter have stayed in our city! We should describe ANARDA (ow. A. Fakhrazeeva). Anarda is our first Russian Champion and the participant of the National OES-show “Bobtail-2002”. ARCHIBALD (ow. A. Razuvaev) also was showed at municipal dog-shows, he has titles of CAC and the Candidate to the Regional Champion. But his show-career was stopped by an accident.

Only in 4 years we have taken the new OES litter (March, 2000) from RusCh KAMEY SKAI OSCAR and our ARVITA (ow. A. Melnik).

In November 2000 the local group of Bobtails’ owners entered in the National Bobtail-club. And the branch of the National club has appeared in Togliatti.

2001 was successful for us! Our ANARDA was awarded with the  certification of “Russian Champion” and in a few months (in May) she gave birth to VITOS ARSINOY BLUE CLAID (ow. A. Kulikov). In July we have got the new litter from RusCH INGUS and KARUND ZHAKLINE. GLORIA (ow. V. Lobatsevich) is our second Russian Champion. Also she was awarded with the certificate of  “RKF Champion”.

2002 gave us two new litters and the first regional Bobtail-Show! ANARDA pleased us again in January. She gave birth to four charming puppies. Two puppies stayed in Togliatti, the other one  moved to Izhevsk. DARK BARDO (ow. S.Antonova) lives in Samara and makes an active show-career! In May 2003 there was Togliatti’s bobtail "stormed" Moscow’s dogshow for the first time! Anarda took the second place at the Champion class of the National OES-show  in spite of the fact that her puppies were only four months-old! On December 14th we organized OES-show that 11 bobtails took part in. That was a record for our city! And at the end of the year the next puppy was born by RusCh JAKOV RINIKON and KARUND ZHAKLINEDE GREY BLUE DREAM (ow. Gaivaronsky S.)

2003 was really full of events - successful trips to CACIB-shows in Saratov, Samara, Moscow and Nizhni Novgorod; wins at CAC-show in Samara and Penza; the birth of the new son of RusCh ANARDA and RusCh GEORGE CHARLE DE TALEYRANZHORES VINZOR (ow. Fakhrazeeva A.). He successfully has begun his show-way taking a win “Best in show baby” at the first two dogshows such as CACIB-show "Sezon v Nizhnem" and  fascinating the judges with his wonderful tail!

 

All puppies from our club live in families with happy owners and bring unspeakable pleasure with everyday contact. It was difficult for "pioneers" as we were. We almost have not had the information about breed . And of course we were learning on our mistakes. This way brings the results not as so quickly as we would want! "Iron curtain" has begun to open with having the possibility to communicate with foreign breeders. We began to receive advices from the owners of the best kennels and I want to tell THANK them very much! We remember how it is difficult to live without information. Now we are trying whenever possible to help with our advice for all who ask to us for help!
