Eventful may

Maj has been an eventful month where we have been to a lot of events with our dogs.

Anna went to the yearly meet up for the hungarian breeds at Ljungby dog club. There were many puli och pumi there and a very nice gathering as usual. We were BBQing, trying agility, rally obedience and talked with friendly people. Kafka, Sally and Wilma came along.

Thank you Marianne Nyman for the pictures with Wilma running free and the picture of Anna and Rya.

The same weekend Inger and Janne went to Neumünster, Germany with Edith and Märta. Lotte and Jan also came along with Valle and Nisse. Edith got a german junior CAC. On the way home they all spent some time in Sönderborg in Denmark.

The next weekend it was time to go back to Denmark. Märta got her second CAC at the danish bearded collie clubs specialty in Lyngby.

The 21st and 22nd of may there was a big rally obedience competition in Halmstad. We got some nice nice visitors at our place in Äskilt: Bea and Vera.

We helped out as volonteers at the agility competition, but there were several dogs from Vallklanen competing. Congratulations and well done Malin and Bilbo (Vallklanens Benbecula boy) who got a great result and moved up from level 1 to level 2.

Annelie, Cajsa and Chrille also competed with Vera (Vallklanens Devon Heartbreaker) and Bea (Vallklanens Bright as Daylight).

Thank you Annelie for the nice photos from the agility competition!

In the end of may we went to Tidaholm to the Svk FUR specialty with our puli. It was a really hot day and the dogs were searching for shade.

Edith went best junior bitch and 4th best bitch. Ester was 2nd best bitch and Kafka 2nd best male. A good day in other words! Congratulations to Esters sister Rut who was best in show and to Marianne Nyman and Stefan Ernstsson at Kennel Impeccable who had the best breeders group of the day with Ester, Rut, Traja and Csabo.

May was a hectic month with acitivies every weekend, but we had a lot of fun!

Level up

Last weekend we were out with the camper and the dogs. That saturday we went to Markaryd and a rally obedience competition where Märta did a really good round with 89 points (out of 100).

The weather was beautiful last week and we went to visit Lotte and Jan, Valle and Nisse in Klippan. On the sunday we did an excursion to the national park of Söderåsen. Anna also came with Kafka and Ester so we had 8 dogs with us and got some attention from other hikers. 

Kopparhatten, a nice viewpoint in the park:

On the monday our tour continued to Höör where Märta and I competed in rally obedience again. This time she got 96 points and came in second place!

Afterwards we went for a nice walk in the forest among the spring flowers:

Today was the third time Märta got good points in a rally obedience competition, with 94 points we came in 4th place. This also means that Märta has gotten her first title (RLD N) and will move up from the beginners level to the next level. We are on a roll 🙂

Update

Where did the past few months go? I think we need a bit of an update here!

We’ve said goodbye to both Piaf and Hygge. Piaf is now called Licorice (Vallklanens Sweet Licorice) and lives in Germany with a breeder who also has bearded collies. We are really happy for that! Hygge travelled to Devon, England, where he is also doing well!

In the beginning the house felt very empty without the puppies, but now Edith makes sure to keep us occupied.

We have been to a couple of shows. One in Hannover, Germany and one in Gothenburg, Sweden. Our dogs have done well. Märta was 4th best bitch at MyDog in Gothenburg. She was also crufts qualified because she won the junior class.

The dogs have taken turns to come with me to work. Even Edith has come to say hello to the elderly who live at the nursing home.

Ester and Kafka are living with Anna most of the time. We have finally finished building the new dog yard, where the dogs can hang out when Anna goes to work.  screen-shot-2017-01-17-at-17-05-38

It is not very far to the beach from Anna’s house, so the dogs get to go on a lot of beach walks.screen-shot-2017-01-17-at-17-05-59 screen-shot-2017-01-17-at-17-05-02 15624401_1808158746099278_1017964771648995328_n-copy

Vallklanen-meet

On sunday we had a Vallklanen gathering in Ljungby. It was a lovely group of people and dogs that came and we got some time to BBQ, practice rally obedience and agility and just hang out and talk. 25 dogs were there with their owners. A big thank you to everyone who came!

Today we have enjoyed the outdoors. The sun has come out from time to time. The dogs love to be outside, run on the frozen lake and play in the snow.

Happy new year

We celebrated the end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 at home in the forest (as usual). The dogs had a calm evening without fireworks. We started the new year with a long walk in the fog.

Green christmas

Christmas is almost here, but it is hard to really feel the christmas spirit when it is still so green and mild outside. The dogs are happy anyways, but we are all really looking forward to snow and colder weather.

Today Sally, Wilma, Ester and Kafka have been outside in the garden playing for hours.
