Rusa & I has started two trackingcompetitions, but it hasn't been the result that we wanted. The first competition went well at finding the track, but in just a short of time it went wrong, and Rusa couldn't keep the track. The second time it was a little mess from the beginning but she came on the track and found four sticks, but after that she lost the track. Probably a little my fault, but we had mooses on the track and the went away just near us when we came near! Well we hope that we can join some more competitions and show how real good Rusa is as a tracker! Today 24/5 we should been started in a schutzcompetition but as Bilda got her pups we cancelled the competition. Well it's only a competition and more is to come and the pups is the most important!!

At Sunday 090502 "Tuva" was mentalitytested, sadly it didn't work out as we thought! Tuva didn't want to play with other persons and she reacted strange in some moments, moments that went very well at the MH(youthtest).

The Easter weekend has been both "vine & water". We begins with water, Rusa & I competed in Eliteclass Schutzhund.
