How it all began...
Once, when I was a schoolgirl,
happened Miracle. It was Team of five people with trained dogs.
So all this story started
Relatives of my classmate had a
small mixed breed red sable bitch called Muha, what means
fly in Russian. I was allowed to take her for walks. Needless
to say, I spend all my free (and not only) time with her and
very soon she was able to repeat almost all tricks showed in my
school. Soon I was noticed by one of members of Club for Army
Support (DOSAAF) and, became myself the member of Club for
Junior Dog Fanciers, just organized at that time. Those of us
,who had no dogs of our own, could train them for people who
couldnt do it themselves for some reason. For many years I was
very closely connected with section of German Boxers and, of
course, my dream was to have the Boxer of my own.
One evening there was a phone
call. It was a call from my mother's colleague. She offered a 6
month old puppy. Her previous owners refused to keep her on. So
this little red Wonder came in my life
long nosed, long
Rough Collie!!! Tro-Brigitta was her name and she was so
different from Boxer
But she turned my life upside down!
Tro-Brigitta and me.
Brigitta was 3 years old, when I
mated her and litter of five lovely puppies saw the daylight.
But I was born as a Breeder. About that time I saw The Yorkshire
Collie Handbook for the first time and started to realize that
type of Collies we had in the USSR at that time, was something
quite different from those in Handbook. I felt in love from the
first sight with the blue-merle dog Ch. Danvis Ladyvale Blue
Mist. (We had no blue-merle Collies in the USSR
In the same Handbook I saw some pictures of some little dogs,
much like Collies. They were Shelties, of course
Now I had
something more to dream about
During this period I became a
judge for some breeds of dogs as well.
It was early summer, when my first
blue-merle Collie arrived from Sweden, 6 month old bitch
Barnehofs Ocelot Girl. She had to become a Legend and she still
lives in my hearth. Soon after Spotty my second blue-merle
arrived. It was male Marbles Nacre Blue, and he was a grandson
of Danvis Ladyvale Blue Mist!!!

In 1982 Spottys first litter
was born. It was Lucky Star A
litter and practically all
puppies from this litter become Show Winners (we had no Champion
Titles at that time). EST CH Lucky Star Silver American Tiger
completed his title at the age of 12.5!!! He was the second
Rough Collie in Estonia and the first male ,who gained
this Title. So I bred under prefix Lucky Star until Estonia
joined the FCI, and I had to change my kennel name to
Very important year for "Lucky
Star"/"Scandyline" Hossa Stanica Marwita my first sheltie
joined us!!! Hossa or Pussy for her friends came from Poland.
She was well built quite big lady with super temperament. When
two years later we decided to mate her, we had to go to Poland,
as there were no male Shelties in the U.S.S.R. Year later two
lovely Shelties, litter brother and sister Est CH Gangster and
Est CH Gilli z Dablovy Studanky arrived from Czech Republic.
Snowball started to roll...

The first Smooth Collie came to
stay with us. It was tricolour male puppy from finnish kennel
Dalimattas. Unfortunately this puppy died at the age of 4 month.
But soon another tricolor boy arrived- Est&Lv Ch Dalimattas
Svarte Frans. Est Ch Dalimattas Big Blue Boss ,blue-merle
male, sable bitch INT &Est&Lv&Lt&RusCh , EUW-94 Dalimattas
Dancing Dream and blue-merle Int&Est& Cz CH Pihatuvan Rebekka
joined us few years later. Dalimattas Dancing Dream ("Daisy")
was the first dog living in Estonia, who became International
champion. "Daisy" had only two litters, but her influence to the
breed is great not only in Estonia, but in Russia, Czech
Republic and Germany as well.

At the present time, due to
different circumstances, there are no collies in Scandyline,
but I still love this breed. My daughter Ieva is following her
mums' footsteps and is breeding Rough Collies , Shelties and
Papillons ! Her prefix is Lucky Starline and the first collie
of her own was Lucky Star British Brume, the granddaughter of
Dalimattas Dancing Dream, Rosebud Gold Alkami,
Granddaughter Laura and her Collie Rebe

Papillons... I loved to watch
those little flying dogs at the shows. Finally the decission was
made-I want Papillon of my own! My friend bought from Finnish
kennel Linnanhaltijan bitch named Daisy. I borowed this bitch
for one litter and so it went on...Soon Papillons became one of
my very favourite breeds...
