Om oss

Kennel Kokopelli ble godkjent som kennelnavn i 2001.

De første årene var det oppdrett av korthåret dachshund og korthåret dvergdachshund.

I 2009 kom den første Haldenstøveren i hus.

Det er ikke noe stort oppdrett, valper planlegges når vi føler vi har nok tid til å ta oss av, og følge opp valpene.

I 2015 fikk kennelen Norske Dachshundklubbers Forbund sin viltsporoppdretterpris i Bronse.

 

NJ(d)CH Kolmilans Juni er tildelt NDF jaktavlspris i valørene

bronse og sølv, samt viltsporavlspris i bronse, takket være

resultatene fra F og G kullene. Stor takk til engasjerte valpekjøpere.

What is Kokopelli?

 

Known as a fertility god, prankster, healer and story teller, Kokopelli has been a source of wonder throughout the country for centuries. Kokopelli embodies the true American Southwest, and dates back over 3,000 years ago, when the first petroglyhs were carved. Although his true origins are unknown, this traveling, flute-playing Casanova is a sacred figure to many Southwestern Native Americans. Carvings of his hunch-backed flute-playing figure has been found painted and carved into rock walls and boulders throughout the Southwest.

 

There are many myths of the famous Kokopelli. One of which is that he traveled from village to village bringing the changing of winter to spring; melting the snow and bringing about rain for a successful harvest. It is also said that the hunch on his back depicted the sacks of seeds and songs he carried. Legend also has it that the flute playing also symbolized the transition of winter to spring. Kokopelli’s flute is said to be heard in the spring’s breeze, while bringing warmth. It is also said that he was the source of human conception. Legend has it, everyone in the village would sing and dance throughout the night when they heard Kokopelli play his flute. The next morning, every maiden in the village would be with child.

 

Whatever the true meaning of Kokopelli is, he has been spreading joy to those around him.

 

Kennel Kokopelli ble godkjent som kennelnavn i 2001.

De første årene var det oppdrett av korthåret dachshund og korthåret dvergdachshund. Vi vet at floskelen om at det er "en stor hund i lite format" stemmer, og setter pris på dachsens allsidighet. Ikke minst liker vi jaktegenskapene den lille kroppen representerer.

I 2009 kom den første Haldenstøveren i hus, og vi håper på å kunne være med på ivareta denne norske rasen i fremtiden.

Det er ikke noe stort oppdrett vi driver med, valper planlegges når vi føler vi har nok tid til å ta oss av og følge opp valpene.
