'' The supermom of one long nose and five wrinkle faces, who works as a controller at day time. As an active, happy and social person Viivi follows many breeds and knows people all over the kennel world. 
Especially shows are Viivi’s thing and the nuances of perfect handling are practiced all the time. But everything else to do with dogs interests Viivi too, she is always ready to learn more. If you want to know where the next dog related training is held, what is the most effective med for diarrhea or where to get more info on an exotic show abroad, just ask Viivi.
Just a while ago Viivi completed her studies and may now be called miss Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration. ''

'' Everybody knows the saying: There is that crazy cat lady. Just change cats for dogs and that’s Viivi. The crazy dog lady of Muistola. Although that expression have such a negative echo I dare use that because I think craziness is something positive. It’s an asset, force that drives you forward towards something you want. That could be a piece of plastic ribbon, new title for a dog or just a cool hobby where you can travel with your hairy friends and meet lots of people that share your craziness.
Besides that Viivi is obviously crazy she is also devoted to doing things with her pack. In fact, sometimes it’s overwhelming just to read what Viivi’s pack has been up to. Muistola’s pack enjoys life and that really shows. Dogs are happy and they know how to behave in the woods, on playdates at the park or in a department store. There is a picture proving that department store thing. The picture is taken in the store called Stockmann and in it are posing Oili, Aune and Lassi. Girls look like they are more at home than Lassi :) They are at home traveling in a bus, a train or Muistola’s own Silver Fang and that’s because they have such a great leader of the pack, The Crazy Dog Lady.

Lassi

Man of the house!

'' Wood artesan Lassi is the calm master of Muistola. Quietish and smiling Lassi conquers everyone with his sympatic character. You will occasionally see him on dog show trips, especially if some other dog show husbands attend too.

Lassi is a dog person in and out. It is a pleasure to see his calm handling of the dogs of Muistola, they all clearly adore him. In addition to dog hobbies Lassi likes to play hockey, frisbee golf and build stuff from wood at Muistola, the latest is a superb garden furniture set from wood pallets. Muistola is very much the handywork of Lassi.  Yo man! ''
