Usually the Cusidhs only need their passports for travelling south of the border to England for visits and occasionally some do settle there. However, there is one particular Cusidh who has ventured even further afield. That's Cusidh Ard Toirnis and he lives in Finland with Kielo Oksanen, Sandmanscot's. Toirnis is the litter brother of Righ (Cusidh Righ Innse Gall) and Rashie (Cusidh Perchance to Dream). Kielo and her friend Miia came over to Scotland in November 2008 to bring Toirnis back with them and he's enjoyed living in Finland ever since. Toirnis has had quite a bit of success in the show ring and you can see his results here. This year will hopefully also see Toirnis' first puppies arrive with Amy (Amazingamozone). Kielo and Miia have come back over to Scotland a number of times scince and it's always excellent to see them.

Update: Toirnis now has another Scottish friend over in Finland. Miia Seilonen has a male pup from the mating between Righ and Lyra. Click here for details on the litter. Some pups are still available from this litter. Please contact Graham and Mary Paterson directly on 01875 613 297,  This email address is being protected from spambots.
