New family member

In the end of september we got a new family member, little Marlon. All the dogs are very nice with him, but especially Märta and Ester love this little guy. Ester gives him kind kisses, Märta is a bit more vigorous 🙂

Marlon has already travelled quie a bit, for example when we went to the swedish bearded collie club’s breeder’s conference in Strömsholm. Jeanette Hansson, a veterinary who is researching autoimmune diseases, had a lecture about some of the ones occuring in our breed, and Irene Berglund had a lecture about population genetics. It was a very interresting, fun and informative weekend.

We are enjoying the beautiful autumn weather. Märta got a final qualifying result at rally obedience in the intermediate class and is now free to compete at the advanced level. We are so proud of her.
