A new generation

This year we have got a new generation of bearded collies here at Vallklanen. In the beginning of june we welcomed Vinny (Hairdog’s My Beautiful Blue Girl). She is living with Anki just 10 min from us, but will be part of the Vallklanen family.

Here at home we had a litter with two puppies this summer. Ebba (Vallklanens you had me at hello) has moved with mother Nova to Borås but will be part of Vallklanen. Hopefully, if she develops nicely, if she has a good temper and is healthy, we will get a litter with her in a few years. Gösta (Vallklanens that’s the spirit) is living with relatives, so we will also meet him often.

Last week we finally met Lucy. She is bred by Edit Upor in Hungary, but has now moved to us in Sweden. She has a lovely temper, came with the airplane and did not seem bothered by the trip at all. She has been wagging her tail since the first time we met her. We are sure we will have lots of fun with this girl.

Welcome Vinny

We welcome Vinny (Hairdog’s My Beautiful Blue Girl) to kennel Vallklanen.

Tina Jämthagen and Tina Berglund at kennel Hairdog’s are Vinny’s breeders. Now Vinny will live with my collegue and friend Anki. We think she will have a great home there. It is just 15 minutes from us and Anki will take Vinny to the club to practice obedience and other dog sports. We will meet Vinnie often and take her to dog shows with us. We are really looking forward to get to know this blue girl.

 

Bolmen

We are enjoying the sunny and warm weather. Yesterday we took the boat out on lake Bolmen. Sally came along. 

When we got home we took the puppies out in the garden. Nova was very playful and happy to be outside and get some help from the other dogs with the puppies.

 

Specialty

On saturday SvkFUR had a specialty show in Tidaholm. Anna went with our three puli and it was a very successful day.

Edith won the intermediate class and got a CAC:

Ester was runner up in the champion class:

Kafka was BOS:

We were so proud when BOB went to Kafkas sister Hjördis (Vallklanens Devon Country Girl). She later went on to win BIS 2 as well. Congratulations Jenny!

Judge was John-John Johnsson (SE).

The same day a third sister had a successful day competing, but in agility. She got a qualifying leg and is now moving up to compete in a higher level. Congratulations!

SBCs yearbook arrived. We are happy to see the beardies from Vallklanen who did well in 2017.

In Sweden the whole month of may has been beaufitul. The sun has been shining and it has been war. We are enjoying it as much as we can. Anna and Marlon took a couple of the dogs to a beautiful nature preserve an hour from home:

Now time to cuddle with the puppies.

Today the two week old puppies were models. They have just opened their eyes and are trying to walk on their four legs.

Nova and Bingo’s puppies

Nova got puppies on May 9th. The sire is Bingo (CH Moonfellow free spirit). We now have four puppies here at home, one bitch and three dogs. Unfortunately Nova had to get a c-section, but she is strong and took well care of the puppies from the first moment she met them.

We are hoping that they will all do fine and grow up strong. There are a couple that are very small and need some extra support, so please keep your fingers crossed.

Heat wave

We have had areal heatave here the past few weeks, bith summer temperatures. Wonderful but also hot. The dogs have been down to the lake ever day.

Valle and Nisse have got a summer haircut 🙂

The 5th of may Anna and Marlon went with Ester and Edith to the annual Ljungby meetup where there are usually more than 20 puli and pumi. It was a very hot day so Ester spent most of it with Marlon in the UV-tent. Edith, on the other hand, played a lot. Full speed!

Good news

A couple of weeks ago we got the fantastic news that Siri (Vallklanens Dartmoor Dreamer) with owner Sirpa got the certificate to work as a therapy dog / care dog. Well done and congratulations you two!

At the same time we were in Leipzig with Edith and Kafka.

We showed the dogs at the German winner show where Edith became German junior winner 2017.  They were also shown at the world dog show. Edith got an excellent and Kafka was 4th in the champion class. We are still happy because there were so many nice dogs there.

Home again we got some nice, cold winter weather.

Last week we went to the Danish bearded collie clubs chistmas dog show and Märta (Natterjack Starshine) was not only BOS, but also got her final CAC to become a Danish champion!
