Windsongs Newsletter 1 - 2000
Now it's winter - it's dull and
damp some days, - but others are just so nice. Crispy and fresh. Both humans
and animals enjoy a glorious winterday. It's "after season" at Windsongs,
even if there is shows to attend we do not have the drive to struggle on
There has been an exciting autumn
filled with hunting opportunitys, both on ducks, rawdeer and moose, mainly
for Windsongs Stravinsky but also "Carmen" and "Klara" has been out working
and tracking. Their "mum" (me) shot a rawdeer two days after X-mas eve,
when "Klara" Windsongs Klarinette was on duty.

On the 6th of January we had the
happy arrival of an AI litter (4+3) by a champion dog INT NORD UCH Windsongs
Pralin, born 1978! Pralin sired 8 Sh CH's, -one also beeing a Field Trial
Ch, and one Obedience CH during his life.
Pralin was a good working dog and
an awardwinner at fieldtrials and obedience, and a stunner with a lot of
winning at shows up to his tenth year.
Our aim with this litter is to be
able of linebreeding on blood for documented good performace. We hope so
that these pups will be a scource of joy and a good investment for the
future for us and for others that might be interested!
Three of the males is going to be
sold to good active homes of springer enthusiasts where they can get the
opportunity to show their ability. If this appeals to you, please contact
