X-mas adventure

The adventurous thing I would like to write about happened on 25th December. We visited my cousin as he turned 40 years. As Danka is in season, the most convenient thing seemed to be to leave the dogs at home. I told my Dad to put away all eatable (or edible?) stuff as Odin acts very very "hungry" nowadays and would steal anything. Must be the age as she used to be the most obedient and well-behaved girl on earth - I could leave a plate of beeksteak on the table and she would…

Champion Of Champions Show, Budapest, 16-Dec-2007

Copper's Music And Paws becomes Champion of Champions '07, takes Best of Breed and then even Best In Group-2 :-). The breed was judged by Paul Stanton from Sweden and the group by Tamas Jakkel from Hungary.

It was a delight to see that all the group-placings (they place 3 dogs here in Hungary) went to English pointing dogs, group winner being the English Pointer, second the Irish Setter, third the English…

Cake recipe :)

The secret recipe is quite simple, it is a baked pastry case that you can buy in the supermarket. Cut it horizontally (or buy two... but that makes it too dry for dogs in my experience), put cream cheese between the two pieces. "Glue" together. Then put liver paté (more liver cream that we have here in Hungary) all over it. Decorate with doggie cookies. Feel free to post photos of your next creation :-)…

The cake is with liver paté coating and a filling of cream cheese. :-)…

Robin left us

Erinade Extinguished "Dr. Robin" is an angel now. This great ambassador of the breed left us after 13,5 wonderful years. He will be dearly missed by everybody.

He was the star of the rings but most of all he was Emese's best friend.

Sleep well, beloved Robin. May the shamrocks fall softly.

Laura with Odin (your daughter) and…

Andy, the Irish Setter won the "Hortobágy Cup" field and water hunt test last weekend with first prize, CACT, CACIT - the biggest hunt test event in Hungary.

With many good Hungarian vizslas entered (and one pointer and one weimaraner), this is a very big achievement. His owner Petra is also a member of this site but might be too shy to brag :-)…

National Show, Szekszárd, Hungary

Hello everybody, congrats to all the wins during the weekend. We also had a very successful day at a show. We spent a long weekend at my parents' house (fun photos will be loaded into my photo album) and surely we also went to the show arranged 40 km from the town they live in. Both my girls were entered. Odin's first show in puppy class was in this town 1997, almost exactly 10 years ago, so I thought it would make a nice "frame" to her show carrier to end it there. And…
