She did an excellent trackingcompetition with nice points, we has also done a very good schutzcompetition where we missed the Certificate with 1,25 p! I'm so proud and happy over Rusa!!

At last some updates! The last week we drove a longer journey to & thru Germany! One of the reasons with this journey, was to check if we could find some intresting males for future litters! I will write about this in a couple of days & will also update the poor Gallery(Other Cattledogs) who hasn't got so much time!
So, we have one positive news and one news who is a little negativ!

Snjos Blue Free spirit"Fixa" has been x-rayed with the very excellent result hd A/A & ed 0/0! Congratulations Jenny & Fixa!!

The little negative resultat is that the x-ray on "Dino". Dino got hd C/B(fair&good) & ed 1/0(mild&excellent). For about a year ago Dino tore his cruciate ligament in his left hindleg. It wouln't be better than Dino got hd C at the "injured" leg and also ed 1 on the same side. According to veterinarian so got Dino his ed 1 just because that he has overloaded his left frontleg because of the injury on the cruciate ligament! A little sad, but Annette is not worried at all about this, Dino hasn't any pain and he doesn't limp and he work excellent in their work!
Also a big THANKS to Annette & Kai who lent beds on our journey home to Sweden!!

Rusa & I has been on two trackingcompetitions this weekend, it didn't went so well as I wanted. She is a wonderful tracker and it was diffcult circumstances in the tracks and many dogs didn't find the track at all. But Rusa doesn't feel totaly ok, I will take her to a masseur to check her up!

This weekend Rusa & I competed in lower class search. We won the class and advance to higherclass on 527,75 p! Sadly Rusa got an injury on Sunday, there was an education for schutzfigurants & in one of the moments Rusa whined and limped a little after, hopefully it's "only" a tension. They week will show if we can compete this weekend!

Congratulations to the F-litter who is 1 years old today!!

Brynja & Malin is continuing their success. This Saturday 100522 on a very sunny day, they started in goth their 3rd stick in Agilityclass I and advanced to class II! On a very rainy Sunday, the got their 2nd stick in jumpingclass!! You are so great! Congratulations again!

Rusa & I started this Saturday in protectionsport competitions. Rusa wasn't feeling so great. Probably she was both fysical & mentally tirede in the wake of her heat, so we broke the contest. There is more competitons to come!

Yes, more positive news! "Dizza"(Djanda) is x-rayed with Hd A & Ed 0!! Congratulations Pia!!

Yet another positive result,"Brix"(Darrk) in Norway is now x-rayed, the result went Hd B(good) & Ed 0! Very nice, Congratulations to the result Irene!

Dinger"Dino" who lives in Denmark, has been to his first show, he got the judgement Very Good. The judge Rodi Hübental, Sweden thought however that Dino could be better developed for his age!! Hmm, Dino is still not 2 years old and pretty strong right now! Well well, thanks Annette for showing him, but I think that he will get some nice results at future shows even if the "sport" doesn't belong to Annettes favorite thing to do!
Dino & Annette has also started their first Rallyobediencecompetitions, who went well. They got fine 82 p. Dino has also been trying to herding sheeps together with sister "Xena". Dino showed very nice herdinginstincts so Annette was really impressed!!

Even this weekend was a success!! On Saturday 100502 it was Malin & Brynjas turn to compete, this time in Agilityclass I and it went so well! Malin & Brynja did an excellent race and came in 2nd place among 80 other competitors and got their first stick!CONGRATULATIONS Malin, you are so good!

Little B is superb, in one week she has advanced to two different classes(search & track) and also got a stick in agility!!

During the Sunday, Sandra & Fire Stick "Deter" also did their start on an official show! Even that went excellen, Dex got CAC & BOB! Dex got really nice critic and the jugde Bob Rushton fr.England told that he didn't gave the CAC to Dex just because he was alone in the race, beyond that he was a fine specimen!! The critics is on his own page! CONGRATULATIONS Sandra!!

Darel is x-rayed with the result Hd B(good) and Ed 0! Nice with the positive x-rays! Congratulations to fam.Warnlöf/Fernhagen for the nice result!

So than to the negative result Devil's Blue "Sam", is x-rayed, he got hd D & ed 0! Really sad, but with the fact in our hands we can see that the x-ray hasn't been done as it should and we will do it again. They had to take 8 plates !!! before the pic was ok, the also tied Sams legs because they couldn't keep his legs, partly because he is so muscled and that the he resisted despite the sedation! Really really sad but to get a fair assessment of the hips, then of course the premise that it is done right! So we will wait and see until the next x-ray!

What a weekend! During Saturday 100424 Annica & Elda was competing in lower class tracking, and how it went! The came on 2nd place and advanced to higher class! Big CONGRATULATIONS to you, it's impressive given that Elda is only 1½ y/o!! We are looking forward to upcomming competitions!

Rusa & I also competed in eliteclass tracking on Saturday, we got an approved result. Rusa was a little distracted, but she is going to be in heat any day now, but although it was the first competition for the year we are very satiesfied!

CONGRATULATIONS on the 2-years day to all of the dogs in the D-litter!!

Today, the stable Elda did her MH! It went great, Elda is a social, playful, quite serious and has good reactions on the moments and don't have any negative remainings! She got a 3 on the shots, she was very intrested in the shooter, but we new this, but her reactions is only positive to the shots & the shooter. I guess it's called controlfreak........!

Flaming Arrow, has once again been to a show and got HP o BOB-puppy. The jugde had a pupil this day, he wasn't so satiesfied with the other Acd:s so asked if he could see "Jeppe" again, "so that he could show to the pupil what a real cattle dog should look like". Not bad for a youngster like Jeppe!!

We also Congratulate the father of the E & G-litters, "Sinjin", who took his Showchampiontitle at the same day as the G-litter was born!! Nice Ingrid & Sinjin!!

Today we have had our annual meeting at Borlänge Workingdogclub. Rusa & I got several prizes for the past years competitions.

They are finally here!! The G-litter has seen the world. So far Chilra has got a blue male with a halfmask on left side and a spot over right eye and a small red doublemasked female!
We will see if someone else is hiding in there! Chilra has done an excellent workd but what did she do?? Well, she hasn't shown anything that she should whelp today. Her temp.hasn't been so low as it should so I counted that she should whelp at Saturday or Sunday. So for a very short while I went to a riding stables with things because our dogclub will have an obediencecompetition there tomorrow. She was just a little whining this afternon but nothing else, so I went there and when I came back, less than an hour she had got her blue boy - in our bed!! But that doesn't matter, Chilra and the boy who just was cleaned felt excellent and less than two hours later Chilra got her little doublemasked girl!! You didn't see that Chilra had any obstetric labor! She is a real good mom and she is laying around them like a ball. Check for pics at the Puppies side!

What a nice continuation at the new year! Edwin & Bora in Holland, took 100207 their certificate in the highest class for rescuedogs in areasearch! They has also now qualified for the Worldchampionchip for Rescuedogs 2010!! We are so happy and proud over this, dogs that can be used for duty, competition and as a familydog!!

The sisters "Ocean" & "Bita" has 100207 been to their first puppyshow. Both got 1:st prize, HP, but Ocean beat Bita and went BOB-puppy!! Congratulations to all four of you!!

The second good news for the year. Chilra is in whelp, we did ultrasound today! Even this inseminationlitter seems to be small, but we saw that there will be some more pups this time!!

So now we have the first positiv news for the year!
Congratulations to Sandra who showed Fire Stick "Dexter" at MyDog in Gothenburg and got 1st prize with HP & BOB-puppy. The judge José Vidal, Portugal gave him very nice critic. Read on "Dexters" own page!
In the puppyfinal little Dexter was picked out as one of top 10 of the pups, this was among over 40 other puppies! Dexter wasn't placed as top 5, but it's very nice that he was placed so well among so many other!

Now we are changing side to 2010, and have high hopes that this year will have as much success as 2009! We hope for new puppies, good training & competing possibilities and other funny things as our kennelcamp and other meetings!
