It was time again in 2011 to look for another female. As I had a great
male in TengelMan, I was looking for a pup that was not related to
anyone of the dogs that’s behind TengelMan, as the plan was to in
the future use him. And hopefully get some lovely puppies.
I found a female-pup in Finland that could be of interest, she did
have some interesting dogs on her father’s side, but there was
much “show-collies” behind her also (which was not quite desirable
for me). But yes, I decided to buy one of the ladies from a litter and
she arrived to Norway with plane.
Her name was Black Gary My Villemo To Echuca, and what’s special
was that she was born March 13 2011, exactly 18 years after my
She was bred by Mari, and I was sure – by all the contact we had before
I got Villemo – that she was a breeder that wanted to have contact and
wanted to know what happened with the pup she produce – in this
case Villemo. I must praise Mari for coming with her to Gardermoen
Airport, that was extremely kind. We drove just outside the airport
for some tucker and talk, discussing Villemo and our contact
It took a couple of months, can’t say I was mailing/contacting her
more than I have done my other breeders, but she stopped answering
my mails and don’t have any contact anymore.
I was not aware that in Finland it’s not common (according to Mari)
to have contact with their puppy-buyers (as Mari told me in her mail),
I didn’t know that. For me as a puppy-buyer (and a former breeder)
it has been important to have contact with my breeders
(and my own puppy-byers). Well, maybe it’s me that are demanding
too much, but of the four females I have bought through the years
I have had great contact with three. It’s a bit sad, myself I follow my puppies
from the day they are born to the day they die.
When Wild Villemo came to Gardermoen and was ready for immigration and out in the hall
she owned the airport. She was so incredible confident and thought the whole place was
made for her, she said hello to lots of strange people and had much fun.
The road trip from Gardermoen went great and Wild Villemo slept the whole way – not a
squeak from her. She came home and walked in like she was born here.
Wild Villemo is a great lady, feisty, eager and fearless spitfire. She is a happy-go-lucky
lady with a great attitude and extremely sure of herself, plenty of confidence in this little
She does have one bad habit, she have huge problems keeping quiet – on the other
hand she has much to tell. She is a very funny lady.
I started to train her when she came to me and showed to be a fantastic search-lady,
she has also tried obedience, herding, field-search and tracking. She love to please
and find it fun to train and learn different types of skills.
She is a happy lady, loves to jump and is fast as a wind. She adores people, but are
not very fond of other dogs, except for her bigsister Little Heike-mother and brother
When she was nearly 6 months young I showed her once in a puppy-show
(September 9th 2011) and the result was BOB. Great result and she behaved superb.
This was the only puppy-show I took her to.
As an adult I showed her at a few conformationshows with fantastic results:
3xCQ, 1xres.CAC, 1xCAC and 1xBOS.
Winner of “The Red Prize in Conformation”.
Superb in obedience
Tried in herding
Superb in search and rescue
Superb i tracking
Superb in fieldsearch
Of course gun-secure
I had great plans mating her but as I have still not done it,
and she is now 6 years young there will not be any puppies
Because of the terrible incident where TengelMan was
poisoned at a show in Skien Wild Villemo will not be
competing more either as I am depending on others
to company me. I would not have dared being at shows
where these Colliebreeders/people are and what they
can do to Villemo.
These last years Villemo has worked as my service dog
and she was absolutely excellent. She was a fabulous
My extremely kind and special service dog Villemo died
beside me early morning November 11 2021.
Totally devastating and heartbreaking.
