Come as you are!

In Kerry Blue-special shows it´s a class that you don´t have to trim/cut your dog. It´s the "Come as you are- class". I think it could be a good idea for IRS-clubs to have the same. Or a special class for us living without bath-class. Or special class for those who only let your dogs bath in Eastern Sea-class...

Because now the shows popping up again - and we don´t have a bathroom yet!!! Interesting problem and mybe not many will be in "Dirty Dog Class" - so we got a small chanse to…

Moving with all dogs!

OK, now we are all out... on the dark country side!!! I think a lot would say "If you living on a small island in the middle of Eastern Sea - could you be even more isolated... " YES! Absolutely!!! In a cottage from beginning of 1910:th, without TV, shower, washingmashine... You name it!

But what we have is pice. Long light nights and quiet mornings. No neighburs having partys. No ferrys or turists. I allready get use to a slower lifestyle!!! I read instead of watching TV and the…

The Smell of puppies!

I said the whole winter - no pups this year! I want to show my youngsters this summer so no litter... And when Lisa had her season in Marsh it was easy to remember not to mate but... then allready in May the decition was forgotten!!!

How do we behave on dog shows?

Often I hear comments arround the ring about judges - and the critics are hard many times! But I was thinking about us!? You know people at dog shows. I think dogs are easy to deal with and to understand - but people? After many years on shows I reflected over how to behave on our shows.

In Sweden - now also in Finland- everybody got their own tent on shows, very close to ringside. Just to get into the ring is complicated and to see what´s happening in the ring is hardly impossible.…

Have you reflected over the dogwalks? For me it´s not only exorcise - it´s meditation! The dayly long walks are realy healing my soul.

Yesterday it was a typical hot summerday - and we are so lucky to have the seabreeze! I thought about how happy I am with my setters - they are all happy, healthy dogs between 1-11 years. And my dogs ARE my best friends - as they say " dogs are mans best friend"!

BUT THEN??? What´s next on the list?

For me, right now, on second place my…

Ashrims - setters since 1976!

Just home from SKK Alfta National dogshow. A beautiful show a bit up north in Sweden! Judge Joanne Sewelle from Australia. After a cold night the day become very hot - wrong cloths on... Rasmus become best male and BOS. The surprise for the day was my little favourite Stacy, A. Ginger. She decided to take things sereously and behaved well (first time in her short life?). That payed off and she ended 5:th best bitch!!! Lisa, Dunswood Alisa, ended 4:th best bitch so we had all a very nice day!…
