As usual my dogs are helping me on the farm. Sometimes we go trialling, and 2008 Sally has been at Swedish Cup again.
2008 the Swedish Cup was a 2 days trial with double fetch and sorting (?). Sally placed 18 but her fetch was better than the winner Carl-Magnus Magnusson and Roy. That makes me happy! We are going to so few trials!
This year maybe Greta is running her first trial. Greta is going to be a winner.
Sally (& Sweep) had a litter of pups this spring, 6 pups. I have kept Alma.

Yang and Sally have been trialling at Breviksnas again. 4 trials in 3 days. Top handlers from Norway and Sweden were there, and my dogs really showed their capacity on the hard trials fields. The missing points were all my faults...

Yang and Sally have been to the first trial of the year; in the Swedish mainland (Breviksnas).
On the sunday Sally was very successful and was placed number 9. Good Girl!
Greta is very upset at the pups clinic. There are several pups there who are staring at her
and she does not like it at all. So we are training self confidence among other dogs at the moment.

Spring is coming, and all the lambs. Greta is growing, at the moment she is 9.8 kilos,
and she is a clever pup. Very easy to handle, a good listener and very keen.
She is very interested in the sheep, so I have started her a little already.
Greta shows good abilities, and is very brave.

This year has been very sucessful with my dogs. Both Sally and Yang has been trialling several times. Sally has been in top ten almost on every Open trial!
Yang is just the dog you want, this is his second year on the trials field, and he is wonderful to work with. He will beat his mother soon.
Yang is class winner both in novice and open class this year in Gotland.
Yang had a litter of pups with Megan in October. They are looking great. All of them are sold to farms, wherer they are going to work sheep or cattle, and all the families really love them.
In January 2007 I will get a new pup from Deb.Jones in Wales

This year has been very successful with my dogs. Last winter Megan had pups with Sweep and there were 4 bitch pups. Two of them are sold to the Swedish mainland och the others are on Gotland. I have kept one, called Sara.
On the trials fields Sally has been very successful, she came to the Swedish championship and placed number 29 of 41 dogs. Her son Yang has been trialling just a few times, and he was ranked to Young Dog´s Cup, where he placed himself 5, just 4 points from the winner.
Sweep and Megan have also been trialling with some success, but no top results.
Sweep has mated Sally and a new litter of pups will hopefully be born in December.
