Röskva

image3E6

Röskva’s full name is Galtanes-Röskva. She is not alive anymore, and is lovingly missed. She was so beautiful, with such great temperament, to me, she was simply the perfect dog. She was good and patient with children, and a good working dog, that helped us a lot driving sheep and horses.  

Röskva’s pedigree.  

Her father is INT UCH. IS.M. ISCH Íslands-Tanga-Sómi 93-2649.
Her mother is Snotra (best Icelandic female on an international dog show) 93-2898.

Röskva’s show record:

 March 1998.  When Röskva was almost 9 months old, I took her for the first time to a dogshow. It was an international show in Reykjavík in march 1998. There she was:
Best young Icelandic sheepdog in show.
Best Icelandic female in show.  

She got her first champion degree there.

In march 1999 I took her to an international show in Reykjavík
(290 dogs, 42 breeds of dogs attended the show).
She got a degree as an international champion, but she was also:
Best young Icelandic sheepdog in show.
Best Icelandic dog in show.
Nr. 3 in Best dog in show.  


Here is a newspaper clip (Dagur) from when she got the title
Nr. 3 in Best dog in show.  

In october 1999  

we went to a dog show where Röskva became  

Best Icelandic female in show (2. best icelandic in show)  

and got her 3.  Champion degree, so on that day she became an Icelandic Champion(ISCH).  

She was also the high-point Icelandic dog the year 1999.   


Here is a newspaper clip (Morgunblaðið) from when she got the title
Best Icelandic dog in show.  

Then she came back home and posed a bit for me:

Röskva’s breeding record:  

 
2001.  Röskva gave birth to a wonderful group of puppies, the father was Snælukku- Kátur
IS03364/94, an Icelandic champion with great temperament and a very successful show dog.  The puppies were 

IS06463/02  Fljóta Fróði         

IS06464/02  Fljóta Píla á Ólafsvöllum  

IS06465/02  Fljóta Hvatur    

   

2003 she gave birth to a beutiful group of puppies, after Ferjukots Sorrow IS06302/01, a very friendly and pretty dog that had done well in shows.  

The puppies were:  

IS07495/03  Fljóta Njála  

IS07496/03  Fljóta Doppa       

IS07497/03  Fljóta Askur  

IS07498/03 Fljóta Grótta        

IS07499/03 Fljóta Embla  

2004.   This year she had puppies, the father was Leiru Þórshamar Týri IS06265/01.  Unfortunately the litter was small, but this time we had the sense to keep one of the puppies, and that was good because that was Fljóta-Táta, the spitting image of her mother, the wonderful dog that has her own page here on the website.  The puppes in the litter were 

IS08169/04  Fljóta Kópur       

IS08170/04  Fljóta Táta 

Röskva’s youth:

Röskva was an extremely fast learner. I’ve had really to use my imagination to figure out new things to teach her. Here she is just 80 days old, and she’s learned to STAND still…

SIT…  


…and LIE.  


When Röskva was a puppy, she loved playing with our other dog, Stássa. She was also as an adult quite a prankster towards Stássa (even though Röskva is considered grown up now ; )…  


…but they love each other anyway.  


Ready, set, go… shows ahead!
