Vallklanen in Eslöv

This weekend we went to a specialty dog show hosted by the swedish bearded collie club. It was so nice to see the puppies Imla (Vallklanens Melrose Lass), Elsa (Vallklanens Armadale Gal) and Bilbo (Vallklanens Benbecula Boy). Their mother Sally came along as company and their dad Hebbe (CH. Goonies Highlander Lad) became best male and BOS.  Sara (CH Duchess Montebello Smartness) was BOB. Big congratulations!

Ella (CH Vallklanens Lady Bannockburn) competed for the first time in the champion class, but was not placed as one of the best 5.


We are so proud that our puppy-trio was best puppy group of the day.

Boat trip on Bolmen

Today we went for a trip with the boat on lake Bolmen. Anna was at home with Ester and the puppies. Sally, Ella and Wilma came with us because they love boats.

Ella is a champion!

Yesterday Ella (Vallklanens Lady Bannockburn) became a champion! We participated in an international all-breed dog show in Köping where Ella became BOS. The judge was Hans Van Den Berg from Holland.

Because Ella already has CACs from Finland and Denmark she is not only a swedish champion but a finish, danish and also nordic champion. Now we will celebrate!

Congratulations to Linda and her Lärkängens Aiming for the Stars who was BOS. We also want to congratulate Jenny and her male Moonpack’s Blue Malibu who got CAC.


We had a nice weekend in our RV. Ella, Sally and Wilma came with us. The first night we slept in Gränna and the second night outside of Köping.

We have met many nice people, both friends from before and new acquaintances. We talked to Lars Hammar who is a breeder of schapendoes (Kennel af Ulfsäter). It turns out that he also used to be a breeder of German shepherds and knew my father Karl-Erik. I remember following my father to dog shows when I was a child. Lars had been to our house for a dog mating, knew of the dogs I remember we had at home as a child and he told me that my father was a good handler. That was really nice to hear! Thank you for the nice chat and the lovely photos of Ella.
