I have had some motivational issues about coursing, due to Dina's injury, work, studies and Roosa's pups. Girls have spent most of the time in our own (yes, the house is now mine!) yard, but there has been so much snow it's not so fun anymore. Weather has been nice, so no complains about that.
Pääsiäisenä saatiin vielä kunnon takatalvi
Onneksi viime viikolla viimein saatiin keväisempiä kelejä
We visited Sweden with Roosa to meet Isac, but unfortunatelly our timing was just a little wrong, and mating did not happen as it should have been. Thus, there is some slight possibilities for some "souvenirs", but I'm not holding my breath for that. We all are sad about that, but they seemed enjoy each others' company, so we'll do a retry on next heat. Warmest thanks to Åsa and her family for hosting!
Dina palkittiin Showlink Pets -messuilla kaverikoira-ansioistaan mitalilla ja kunniakirjalla maaliskuussa. Siinä oli kyllä roskia silmissä ihan kaikilla. Dinan jalka turposi vähän reissussa, käytiin kuvissa varuiksi mutta tällä erää kaikki oli ok.
Dina was awarded with a diploma for volunteer work in Finnish Kennel Club's "Kaverikoira" (Friend Dog) -concept. These dogs visit different kind of places - for example assisted living houses of different kinds of groups - with their owners, and socialize with people who live there. Dina loves the grannies!
When Roosa left back home, Jasper and Senna came to visit us for a week. They were entered in Imatra IDS, aiming for VG, but this time Senna still needs more time, and Jasper was not what this Hungarian gentleman was looking for.
Kyllä tässä varmaan pikkuhiljaa pitää alkaa taas siirtää kamoja autoon. Varovaisen toiveikkaasti olisimme lähdössä Tanskaan, karsintojen lisäksi toukokuussa on SuomiCup ja Derby/Veteraanimestaruudet. Katsotaan nyt.
I guess it's time to pack the muzzles and mantles in the car again. I have slight hope for going to Denmark for ECC's, after qualifications we have two other competitions in May. We'll see what happens.
