Finally I realized my dream and bought an old, but restored farmyard from the foundation time of moor commissionar Finndorf some 180 years ago.
This was the exciting moment, when my Cardigan theory should become actual practice. My first Cardigan puppy „Adda vom Galloway Yard“ aka PENNY came 1987 as a companion for my old boxer „Nica vom Delmestrand“

Soon I bought from Pamela Walker’s last litter „Jezalin Fairy Fox“, a nine month old sable bitch, who will always be my shadow, even if others cannot see her.

I bred 15 litters Deutsche Boxer since 1972 in Quickborn under the prefix „von den Cimbern und Teutonen“.
When I started to breed Welsh Cori Cardigans in 1989 under a new Kennel prefix. fitting to the so different breed of Welsh Corgis Cardigan. I decided to call my litters
„Jolly Cardis“. I bred 12 litters til 1994. Most successful was „Multi CH Jolly Cardis Dodo my Delight“, out of my foundation bitch „Multi CH Adda v. Galloway Yard“ and the British Multi CH Bymil Black Treacle“. Jolly Cardis Dodo MY DELIGHT
When I got fed up to protest my kennel prefix against new kennels with very similar names. I decided to protect internationally the unique Kennel prefix FAYDOM. My M litter between my sucessful British stud „CH Antoc Gregory“ and my Danish“Multi CH Tuuantei Wendy“ brought „Faydom Sparkling Monstone“, aka Kiwi. She should become one of the best bitches for famous Finnish kennel „Yardican“. She is behind uncountable many champions in European countries, USA, Australia and even Asia. Til nowadays she has an excellent influence on so much later born puppies. I recognize immediately, if Kiwi is in the relevant pedigree.

In 1995 I made up my mind to move to Finland with my friend Tuulia Heikkinen. She started to breed Australian Cattle Dogs, who accompany our life since then.
My Cardigans emigrated with me and enjoyed the leachless Finnish nature. After years they all died of age and left a big hole in my life until a new puppy came to fill the „Cardi emptiness“. My KIWI, known in so many pedigrees in Europe, USA and even in some African and Asian countries, was born on 28th of April in 1994 died after 14 years of being all her life healthy.She gave three times birth for my friend Meri Tuuli Aalto under her kennel prefix „Yardican“.I thank Meri for this monument of a wonderful bitch.
After years of joy with my older getting corgis, the day came, when my last corgi died.
2005 a brindle bitch puppy,Geestland’s Silent Song, called PENNY came to my home. A tragical accident caused a complicated breaking of one hind leg and ended so her career as show dog and mom-to-be before it started.Since then she is ruling the pack of my friend’s Australian Cattle Dogs.
She is my spoiled darling, convinced she is the one and only corgi in this world.
„Geestland Silent Song“ was my first Finnish born Welsh Corgi Cardigan.
I collected her in a taxi van, whose owner and driver covered everything
with thick layers of newspapers, were watching eight weeks old PENNY
with eyes full of suspect and was pretty sure, that she would either
bite him seriously in a second or cover his new car with faeces and
urin from ceiling to floor.
Nothing of all that happened. She was sleeping on my lap all the long way.
When she became older, she decided, that she would rather walk through
life as a lonely wanderer, than accept the fact, there are some people
with brains and some nice doggy friends..It flatters me, that she believes,
I am the only exception,though I am lacking two more legs…
Here is my one and only PENNY, meanwhile 11 years (2012) young.
this is my father „CH Geestland Firm Fascinator“
And this is my mother „CH Blondie’s Prima Donna“
