The weekend that was we had the yearly Inoff.show in Åland held by Agility.ax, a favourite event as it is always very nicely arranged.
First out was little "Becca" Sofalex Bogaloos Brazil Da Silva, today again moving superb, was a bit worried as it seems she is starting her season and she always gets so "off" when have season but it didnt affect at all. she enjoyed and was BOB and later on 3'rd in group.

(and when finally showed the other side, then my photographer was in this side *s*)
The lovely Ms."Greta" Bogaloo's Gypsy Flower did show nice as usuall and was very nicely handled today by Marie-Louise, today she placed as BB-2.

Then it was the wild and always exciting one, "Hilda" Bogaloo's Heavenly Anthem...never know what she will get in her mind or when. She did not want to stand today (her most common trick), I tried free stacking as it worked so nicely last weekend for Isabell... but... lets say I need some more training on that, she didnt understood what it was I wanted her to do. However she as usuall moved, and that is something she knows how to do nice, today she moved herself to a BOB, BIG-1 & BIS-3
Was a very nice (and much sand and dust) day. Thank you all that made the day so nice.
Last weekend we finally got on our "Sweden tour". Our goal was to visit Isabell, "Dottie" and her puppies, one week old at the time. We had a really lovely weekend and Dotties puppies looked very nice, will be exciting to follow them grow up. Also our dogs did love to spend some time again with Dottie.

Same trip we also entered our girls to SKK Gimo, as it is very close to where Isabell lives.
First day we had "Becca" Sofalex Bogaloos Brazil Da Silva, she got there VG, judge thinked she was fat. Well that is his oppinion and we payed for it, but do not agree that. All dogs has faults, so do she, but fat isnt one of them :)

Second day Kicke was babysitting the puppies and Isabell joined me and also showed "Hilda" Bogaloo's Heavenly Anthem for me. With "Hilda" Bogaloo's Heavenly Anthem we tried "free stacking" and she did like that, and nice to not need to "struggle with her" as she nowadays seem to always backing in showring, she did get Exc4 with very nice evaluation. "Greta" Bogaloo's Gypsy Flower got also very nice evaluation and was Exc and placed 5'th in class so one out of "placings".

Finally autumn is here, we just love it, now can be outside without melting and we started again our bloodtracking with dogs, which they love. Variating success although, will look up why, but season just started so plenty of time.
Yesterday little "Inez" Bogaloo's I'm In The Flow was at show, this time was SKK Öland and she was there nicely 1hp and was BOB-puppy, later on among picked as the last 6 out of some 20 puppies before left the ring.
Her big sister "Hetty" Bogaloo's Happy In My Heart was in same show but not the best show mood, and she got there a Vg for the day.

Last weekend we finally went to a show, been a weird summer with no time or possibility to go showtrips, so it was nice to finally go. We got a very variating day, heaven all open and sending rain on us most part of the day. First out was our Springer girls, both in open class, very greatful for the handler help we got, girls choosed that it is Greta that get handler help, Hilda was in "I will not stand at all mood" so not fair to give her to someone else :)
Was today also very high entries in Springer ring, and judge was spaniel specialist from Norway.
"Hilda" Bogaloo's Heavenly Anthem showed nicely in first round, got Exc2 & Cq. "Greta" Bogaloo's Gypsy Flower was a joy to watch in other handlers hands, she really enjoyed and moved so lovely. she was today Exc3 in openclass.
In best bitch competition Hilda decided that she had been standing still enough so didnt stand even a second, but hey...Hilda is Hilda, with so much own ideas and I am happy she showed nice in beginning at least :)

Finally some small updates. Today it was "Betty" B.I'm On it that got a fast trimming and some snapshots, 13 weeks old now.
We are now working on new homepage again, cross my fingers this will work nicely now.
We will update page by page as it gets ready. It takes more time than when made the old page as this one is made in another software and of course that one is also new to me :)Due to some "safetyholes" in wordpress system our homepage was hacked and infected our whole webspace with malware, so we did now re-open instead the old homepage again, new isnt always better obviously. But now finally got some energy to start over and make a fresh webspace again.
LOT of info is lost, more than a years updates but all that was updated at the wordpress site for more than one year is lost, so be patient, we will sooner or later catch up... hopefully!
We will try as fast as we can to update what is lost, time isnt anything that we have too much of unfortunately.
