We got a letter from
Norsk Kennel Klub dated 1.November 2011 telling that Norsk Kennel Klubs
Board had awarded
NKKs Breeder Prize 2011 to Kennel Leeland for their breeding of
Dag Rognlien Stenberg.Taken from the local newspaper “Lørenskog Posten” 24.11.11:
the Prize will
be given to Aud Jorun and Helge Lie
place in their
home - if there is room for more.
Aud Jorun and Helge have a house full of trophies, ribbons
and a lot of prizes they have received at numerous dog shows since 1971.
Helge also has a wall with honors from work as a judge at dog shows, where
the judging of Europe's largest show, Crufts in England, is the biggest.
-We had our first litter in 1971. We looked at different breeds to
begin with, but it had to be Shetland Sheepdog, says Aud Jorun.
Champions and puppies
At home in Blåkollen both Paris, Toya and Flynn are running around
the living room. In a separate room there is a bitch with three 14 days
old puppies. The father of the puppies is British. They "only" have the
first three dogs mentioned in the house, but they also have some on
breeding terms by friends, and these they borrow when going to shows.
- We will not have so many dogs at home, we have after all, neighbors.
But we have a large yard of 2 acres it is fenced in, so the dogs can
run free in the garden, says Helge. They
have not counted how many they have bred, but 56 of their dogs have
achieved certificates. A total of 31 have been champions.
Occupation and Hobby
Aud Jorun has also had dogs as a profession for 25 years as editor of
Hundesport. Helge have in addition to the judging been the chairman of Norsk
for years. This weekend 26.11.11. it will be an international exhibition where Norsk
will hand out NKK Breeder Prize 2011.
