Hello from Finland

Maria Molander (Kennel Sismix) has kindly allowed us to share an image of her beautiful Bolognese. Maria lives in Oulu in Finland and is a well-known exhibitor and breeder of Bolognese. This picture is of mother (FI CH Sandra’s Kiss Me Kamia) and her three children (FI CH Sismix Fantasia, FI CH Sismix First Kiss and FI CH Sismix Fiasco) at the age of one year. Credit also to the photographer Kimmo Pallari from Lappi Finland.

FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. I own 3 Bolognese and show the youngest Harry. I also work part time as a support worker. I originally chose the breed for my daughter to show as a Junior Handler, but she has grown up and number of dogs have grown too! I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse, as well as managing large show/breeding/boarding & quarantine kennels. I progressed to the commercial sector in sales and marketing of pet products, including running my own PR agency for pet related companies. Along with a few other like minded enthusiasts, we started this club in August 2015 as we felt the breed needed an information centre and a friendly group where people could share their views and learn more about the breed, so I started The Bolognese Dog Club UK. I have bred 7 litters, but don't breed currently.
