Finnish Spitz       

The Finnish spitz is a breed that is used for hunting capercaillie in the forests. A capercaillie is a large bird that lives in the forests in northern Europe and in the Alps.
It is a very exciting form of hunting. The dog search throughout the ground until it finds a bird. When the bird flies up and settles down in a tree the dog marks its place by barking at and looking up on it. In the meantime the hunter has to creep as far as he or she can, to see the bird and shoot it.
I can assure you that it isn't as easy as it sounds.

Barely two months later she got a CAC and a cacib at a dog show in Finland where she became best of breed as well. It was an amazing experience to win in Finland, the home country of the breed.
In the summer of 2003 Tilda became Best of Breed and got her third cacib.
Tilda has got one first prize in hunting trial.
She lived with my parents until she was 14 years old and we had to put her to sleep.
