Sorry, I was unable to resist this one :-)

Sorry... same rules as last year. No bells, no setters in X-mas-gear. Nothing pretty, jolly or cute.


Just the inside of my head at Christmastime...ah but there is a setter!

Unknown setterowner (continued...)

This photo has hung on the wall in my kitchen for many years. Found at a fleamarket and taken in Sweden. He obviously loved his dogs enough to have a special photo taken with them. I find it interesting that the leads used are so very thin, rather like show-leads. Enjoy two setters from the past...he is now back in his frame and once again looking down at me on a daily basis. :-)



PS I am certain he would have been delighted to find himself… Continue

The drawings are now published...but my scanning from the magazine is not all that good. This is what I was doing while all others were just looking at all the dogs:-)…

Bragging blog-post number 3!!!!!!



Today Vilda (Röde Baronens Glory Days) once again got a first prize in obedience, this time even better than the last two...182 point out of 200 possible. She ended up in second place, this time beaten by a poodle...so she now has the qualifications in obedience I wanted (LP1). The three first prizes were taken in three compertitions in a row.



I have entered two more compertitions (in case I needed more than one shot at… Continue

Bragging Blogg-post number 2



Obedience competition last night and Vilda (Röde Baronens Glory Days) got her second first prize. 175.5 points of 200 possible and a second place. 2.5 point better than last time and one place higher up, now beaten only by a Briard.

Very difficult conditions with temperatures over 30 degrees and few dogs that mooved more than at snails-pace.

So I was pleased it went so well. :-)



Sorry, Genes comment made me realise… Continue

Bragging blog post...



Back from competing Röde Baronens Glory Days (Vilda) in obedience class 1.

A first prize and 173 points out of 200 possible.

Placed as number 3 out of 23 competitors (beaten by a BC + a Belgian shepherd). Well I managed to beat a few BC*s as well...

Considering that it was raining after more than 50 days without a drop, it was very good indeed. I was ill prepared and ended up doing it all in sandals and no… Continue

Last day for the gang...

The very last day for this gang...a great litter from beginning to the end. And there are so many interesting things they failed to discover, like the bottom draw of my desk where I keep my drawingpapers, the wires to the TV, the inside of the catlitterbox, the cover on the settee in the kitchen, the small place where I keep my ironingboard etc. I think this is all thanks to the french (au-pair) buldog Ines, who kept them far too busy for… Continue

Nasty bulldog part 2

Remember that bulldog? Well we did not finish her off as well as we thought...she is BACK! And now trying to steal our plastic lid!

Naturally we can not have that! But then matters got worse. She stole our favorite, the gardening-glove!

Thank god we all helped out...but then...ahhh...she attacked!!!!!! And just look at those teeth we have! I bet THAT scared her!…

If you cant beat them... get a new website!

I was not going to have a dishwasher, nor could I ever see myself with a mobile phone. And like why would I need a computer? All these items I can now not live without for more than a few hours...

But there was another thing you would never see me having. And that was a website.

Like who needs them?

As they say, if you cant beat them, join them. I have. So I am not ashamed to admit I have once again had to change… Continue

10 puppies born on the 19th of december!

Five days old to day and looking great so far. And I am delighted there were no more that ten! Although I had been hoping for six-eight...

Five bitches and five dogs.

A very even litter in every way.

They will get names after Billy Idol-songs. The father is Coppers Pang i Bygget (A) and the mother Röde Baronens Glory Days… Continue
