Autumn is here

A longer video from friday, 4. October. The only positive thing about the autumn is that the dogs can run free, but the cold I could do without.

It is always interesting to see the pack in free motion together. Abba and Inga are close in age and trying to figure out whos gonna be in charge. It is quite harmless but with a lot of noise.
Miza was nearly run over by Inga (it doesn’t seem as she was actually run over) and felt very sorry for herself for a while, and then a few minutes later running like crazy again. They know how to act dramatic.
Ine, who is so small, have learned to lay low and close to me when the sights come running.
So amazing to see when Inga stretch her legs for a run.
And then you got the old lady just strolling around finding the gras most interesting.

Because of the unknown disease going on in Norway (a lot of dogs died of diarrhea) and the isolation due to that, we have not been on many shows this late summer. Now everything is starting to get back to normal and Dogs4all is coming up in November so I might see you there 🙂 Wishing all our dog friends a lovely autumn.

Valpeshow i Malvik

2.desember 2018
Denne gangen var det tid for å introdusere Hjortehunden vår Inga (Undimoon Monna) til utstillingens verden. Vi hadde på forhånd bare vært på en ustillingstrening og det å jobbe med Hjortehund har jeg merket er veldig forskjellig fra whippet, så vi var på forhånd veldig spent. 

Inga tok hele settingen med knusende ro, og synes ikke det var noe å bry seg så mye om og oppførte seg eksemplarisk. 

God kritikk fikk hun også. Dommer for dagen var Vigdis Nymark. 
Best i rase med HP (hederspremie) og 2.Best i gruppe. 

The end of 2017

And soon to be the beginning of 2018.

This year has been a busy year on other behalf than Whippets. Two of our kids has turned in to young adults and have moved away to the city to attend school there. This means a great deal of adjustments and also help from us. Meanwhile we have been upgrading our old house, which is an ongoing prosess. Also with a 7 year old girl in the house we need to pay attention to more than our four legged children.

So we didn’t attend so many show rings this year. Neither did we train for Lure Coursing this year. Anyway this year has still brought us some results to be proud of.

I’ve been having my eyes on him for a long time, and meeting him and Helene this summer was a blast. It’s been a long wait when you look forward to something, but as they say – the one who is waiting for something good never waits to long.
