Updates from Maggie and Kani

2018-04-02T11:48:30+00:00 September 12th, 2013|News 2013|
Kani spent a weekend in the Swedish archipelago and I got some wonderful photos of him. His owners Ingunn and Jon Sverre cannot praise him enough. He is a delight to have in the city, on the bus, on the office, in the boat and Kani always follows when they are visiting friend – and now he came along to some friends of them and behaved like the gentleman he is 🙂 See some photos from their little holiday here. here
Maggie and Hanna also had a eventful weekend with among others Rally Obedience. It was their first time in Rally Obedience Graduate class and they did great (75 points), except for a minor fault with the leash – giving them an disqualification. But you learn from your mistakes, and I am sure the duo will do just as well next time! See some photos from the competition here. They also spent some time on an island in Stockholm where the dogs can run free and play with other dogs, see photos here. here

Obedience LP1

2018-04-02T11:48:31+00:00 September 7th, 2013|News 2013|
Isi and I attended Obedience class 1 (LP1) this week, and we did great! Isi was a pleasure to work with, and we had a wonderful flow. We got 185 of 200 points, 1.prize and was placed as number 2, only 3 points behind the winner. Isi was simply amazing, and I am more motivated than ever to keep going 🙂 My sweet little girl!

Training time

2018-04-02T11:48:31+00:00 September 5th, 2013|News 2013|
Last weekend we met up with Christin who owns Airedale-Uno and my friend Stine with her Riesenschnauzers Storm and Trym to train obedience. We had a great training, and both Isi and Sheriff was happy to use their head. Sheriff still know most exercises and does them perfectly. He still got it at the age of 8 years 🙂 See more photos here

Fame and glory for Isi

2018-04-02T11:48:32+00:00 September 3rd, 2013|News 2013|
Last year Isi attended a commercial for one of Norway’s biggest newspapers VG, and the commercial is still shown on television. If we had been paid for each time the commercial was shown on TV, we would have been rich by now 🙂 See the commercial here. Isi’s “partner in crime” was the Border Collie Fight, owned by a good friend of ours Geir Larsen. Last week on training we took a photo of the two “movie-stars” which can be seen under. Isi and I also attended Obedience class 1 at the International Show in Oslo last weekend and was number 4 of 13 participants. We got 159,5 points out of 180, only 0,5 points from 1.prize and 1st leg towards the LP-title. Both Isi and I did some stupid mistakes, but hopefully we have learned and we are reaching for the 1st prize next time 🙂

Juba was here!

2018-04-02T11:48:32+00:00 September 3rd, 2013|News 2013|
Juba joined our household last week and as always she settles in nicely and becomes a part of our pack. Isi is especially happy to have Juba staying with us, as she then have a never tired buddy that also wants to play outside all day long. Juba also appreciate a lazy time on the couch with her head in my lap and both Isi and Juba follows me like a shadow, always wonder what I am doing and seeing if there are some mischief they can do.. Juba also tagged along with me to my work in Oslo, and relaxed for a whole day on her blanket in the lab. For lunch we went outside in the busy Oslo saturday, and she was a delight to have with us for lunch. Good girlie!
Juba also attended the International Show at Bjerke and recieved a Very Good from Open Class, and comment from the judge that she needs to get more bodymass. Well, we are working on that 😉 But Juba is a lean and elegant build female so time will tell if she will ever get more mass. But I think she is gorgeous anyways 🙂
