Drive away from home at 3.00....one hour to late...as always. I was
soooooo tired but have to stay awake so Rune didn't fall in sleep
while he was driving. I talked to him in a strange way, I heard my
selves talk about thing that doesn't fit together at all. We
stopped to fill gas before the border to Norway and I became a
little bit moor awake. All dogs were calm and sleep, even the puppies.
We arrived to Letohallen about 50 km north of Oslo close to the
airport Gardermoen. It was a rainy morning but it was a nice hall
for the show. We parked close to the entry with the caravan and
start to carry all our things in to make the stand with bags and blankets.

Eileen was working in the ring. Our young dogs was really socialized
today, it is important for us that they think it is funny to be at a
show otherwise they can't show themselves up in a good way, so we
have to start early with that training just for fun. And this was
the first time our small puppies have to have a lead on. They were
very clever after a while.

Jonnies Birthday 17 Years Old
Jonnie Roy Eddie
Daddy o Jonnie
Born 1990.09.29 at time 7.42 (I was up early *S*) length 54 cm
weight 3780 g
Up early again for breakfast. See
Mummy they look at me, I HAVE TO laugh!
What strange animal is it over there?????
It was CLARA, a nobel strange dog from Germany close to the country
where I was born, so we almost uderstand each other, and she
drove me to Stockholm to meet my new family.....clever girl that can
drive a car! She had a Mercedes of course......
Breeder meeting first of all and later Kattis (Claras Mum) and Rune
went down to the garage. He would like to show Kattis how big it was!!?
Clara didn´t understand nothing, she just want to go back home and
take Expo with her.
Outside our conferance room we heard a terrible noice and looked out.....oh
my god!!!! And when all this people was ready to play there were a
band playing large music for some hours, it was good but I got a
terrible migrane of all this noice, but maybe it is because we have
slept toooo little last nights. Just want to go back home and pack
everything together because we have to be in Norway tomorrow morning
to sell bags at a show at 8 o´clock.
Home about six o´clock and try to make everything ready.....we were
so tired that everything went in slow motion....I have still pain in
my head and can´t think of everything I have to do....and I need to
give some dogs a bath tonight because they have been digging
again in the mud. Szzzzzzzzzzzz......Rune went up to sleep
some hour because he was to tired to drive. I will give Rolex a bath
in some minutes, and clock is now 01.15. We have to start at two a
clock...to reach the show in time tomorrow, I really don´t know how
to walk up the stairs with Rolex and he probably think I´m crazy
when I tell him that he have to take a bath now and then to dry him
with my fön....don´t know the correct name but don´t care......to
tired... and I have to wash my hair and to take a
shower.....NOW...crazy...NO...more than crazy...totally kaputt!!
Sleep well to You All that can.....I´ll be back at my computer in
the end of next week, we will go to Norway to sleep......maybe.
Thinking about Expo, goodnight my Darling I know that You got a
goodnight kiss from me tonight from Your new mum Pia, she love You
And we will always love You. See You in Växjö, have a nice time
Friday 28 september 2007

the house because we will celebratew Jonnie this evening because he
have birthday tomorrow at saturday but then we are in Jönköping at a
breedingconferance whole day and we will drive to Norway tomorrow
evening, to try to sell bags at a show there (crazy..Yes) .....But
we will ONLY take nine of our dogs with us so it is very easy...*S*
and the youngest once, they need to come out in this age, espicially
if they not have got a new home yet.
My mother and her sister came here and later Roy came with lot of
food. I was in the store most of the day from early morning, and
Rune took care of the "Ladies" in the house.
My aunt and Jill

Tomorrow Expo is moving to his new home about 700 km from our place,
we tried all night to take nice photos of him, but he laugh ALL the
time, so he is maybe very happy to get a new family?? No of course
not he is always like this....good that he have all his teeth!!!!!
He look like a rabies dog I saw in a movie many years ago! But Expo
is so happy that he try to eat You up every minute !
If You just put Your hands on the camera, he laugh in case
of.......Rolex with his strange sleeping style.....always so many
that are hungry.

Thuresday 27 september 2007
Tonight we couldn´t go to bed because we were so crazy about the new
camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We both start to read about it in all papers
we got...and after 4 hours I found a little not about something at
the lens that we have put the wrong way..HAPPY!
Today Anita was her and ofcourse someone else with cake, Anita was
so happy and eat a big pice of it *S*. (Just joking)
Took some pictues of Harry, he start to look really good now.
Worked late in the store, suddenly many people that are going to
wedding very soon and we need to change some dresses emidiatelly,
and Rune love to take care of the iron......maybee because of his
girlfriends in that room *S*
Even Jonnie was there!
I bought this dress at a little store many years
ago, I gave it to my granddaughter, but Jennie my daughter think it
was terrible, so I take it back and put it on my teddy bear, and I
still love the dress, and so do the bear that Devlin got many years
ago as a prize of honour at a summer show at Gotland.
Wednesday 26 September 2007
Yesterday at the vet revaccinating some of the
puppies. Gloria, Decibel, Bell, Daddy o Star.
Today we really need to go up early, but when You
know that You are even more tired then other days when You can chose
how long You can stay in bed. Crazy feeling.........! Devlin and
Jill and Devlina love to sleep as long as possible.
Today suddenly very bad quality of my photos????
This is taken with my camera but last picture with Elins lens.
Elin and Trumph Card
WHAT HAVE HAPPENED WITH MY NEW
CAMERA????????????????? Spermbank and Trumph Card eat up one of our

some wedding dresses and I packed Jonnies birthday presents in boxes
and some more things that dog Dalmatian owners have ordered. In a
while I will go back out and make some small things at dresses that
some customers pick up tomorrow morning...early morning...(11
Tuesday 25 September 2007
Rain, rain and more rain sometimes I love it, I
almost love everything with autumn, but most of all that snakes go
back to sleep all winter and that flies are much more slower so I
can catch them and that the air is fresh and clean. And that there
are a little less dog shows to travel to so I can start with some of
my "projects" that I have on my "LIST" of things we (Rune) have to
change here at home...now nr one at the "list" is our bedroom *S* I
have sooooooooooooooooooo many new ideas what I would like to do.
First to take a wall down so we can se the lovely little old window
that now is in the wardrobe. And then to change the ugly floor that
we say that we will do first of all before we moved in 5 years ago
I'm a really a restless soul when I am at
home from dog shows for a longer time...than 2 weeks (but I love it
in the same way)*S*!
Many times during a day I look at "Extreme Home
Makeover".....it is My favourite Program of them all. First I see it
on Danish TV later on the day at Norwegian TV sometimes at Swedish
and then from USA...... But I get soooo many expensive ideas and
funny solutions that is not that easy for my Darling to realize
after my directions and with our money. In Usa they have millions to
spend, so of course it look a little bit more simple here in our
home, but most of the time we are very pleased with the result both
of us, and that is most important. We really love our old fashion
home. I have lived in some fancy, new build, special, lovely
different types/stiles of houses/properties. Even built a new home
in old stile, but you cant build in real old feeling in a new
house...even if it is so perfect and lovely. We will try to find
some photos to put under "About Us" later when I have tidy up in our
wardrobes from our previous homes.
This is from one of My favourite home that I
owned from 1999-2005.

A New mail from Russia, today
Tyson became Best In Show Puppy, Congratulation
to Evgeniya at Gloriandus Kennel!
We have been out of Dryer for our clothes for
some weeks now, and today I couldn´t stand it anymore so we bought a
new one (thank god that the dryer for our dogs blankets is still
working, but I do not want to mix our clothes in the same as their
things, and it is in the kennel at ground floor with their washing
machine). It have been hanging wet things all over first floor, and
you have to iron everything otherwise it is not soft enough to wear.
I love my Dryer, and if You have Dalmatians it is NECESSARY!!!!!
When Rune was in the store he found a cheep
Sewing machine......on discount today!!! Ok I really need one, BUT I
HATE to use things like that...I have NO PATIENCE AT ALL with such
things. But Rune is really good on those things *S* as in everything
else....! And he like to show me who I can do things in his
way....and after a while he have finished what I should have been
doing.......PERFECT...for me *S*, so I look forward to see what
I/we/he will start with. Probably new curtains in the
kitchen....I'll let You know.
Lovely sunny weather today and Rune decide to cut
all grass around the house (it is really necessary) it have been so
much rain so the grass is to high and we haven't been home to cut it
when the weather was good. Last time he start to cut the grass and
the tractor stopped and we have to repair it for lot of money (we do
that almost every month!!!). Today he started and after 5-6 minutes
he was back in the house again, he haven't seen a toy from the dogs
that was under the long grass so it get caught under the tractor in
the motor....he took it away but the motor did not want to start
again (I think he was happy) so he decide to sit and eat chips
instead and look at TV. But he do not know that I will pack up the
sewing machine in a while.....then he maybe be in a hurry out again.
Funny pictures from Holland! I LOVE MALE DOGS!!!!!

Friday 21 September 2007
So wonderful to know that we just can stay home
this weekend, no travelling at all....we are always so tired after a
hard showing season, and with so many puppies at home we never have
the time to rest. And with all our aches and pains we really need to
settle down for a while.
After a long morning (why are we more tired when
we have slept 9 hours than 4?????) we eat breakfast at 1 o'clock and
then we go to the store to buy food . Annelie A called yesterday and
told us that she will visit us during the afternoon today, and when
we came back from the store she was already here. We (she) drink
coffee and we talked a lot for some hours, that was fun because we
haven't had the time to talk so much at shows this summer we have
always so much dogs with us and so much people around us...
We and most of the dogs looked at TV all evening
and sleep a little and look again...an so on......At 5 o'clock we
went to bed after a last call to Norway to Bente (Kennel Skvå)
because Nelly (J Puzzle Piece for Skvaa) started to give birth just
after midnight to her first puppy after our Loverboy.
Annelie and Rune.
Me and Top Model....now called BELL.
Thursday 20 September 2007
Many thanks to All of You from the Whole World that send greetings
to us and our dogs, hope to see You somewhere maybe next year!
Rune was going back to the doctor today, it was not easy, but he
could see a little bit better today. But now he was back for his
sleeping apné to get the result of all tests and to get some aid to
get more oxygen during the night. He came home with a suitcase with
a machine that he will put over his nose all the night so he can
breath better, the result of his test was really bad. At normal You
breath about 20-22 times every minute BUT RUNE breaths 25 times
during FIVE MINUTES!!!!! And he STOP breathing 42 times every HOUR!!!!!
This is NOT good at all, and the night he took the test we really
think it was one of his best nights.......o my god!!!! I don't even
dare to think about the bad nights. This was good for us to know
because now we understand more why he forget lot of things and do
some other crazy things sometimes..
Last night when we went to bed he put his machine over his face, and
start it. Jill immediately sit up in the bed and stare as one
bewitched at Runes face.....ok he really looked like an ALIEN so I
understand her.....she didn't want to lay down and she didn't look
at me when I try to reach her....she was really paralyzed. Rune try
to talk to her, but his voice sound strange so she probably think
that someone else that she/we don't know was laying on his side in
the bed....After about 45 minutes she lay down again but she was
still in doubt who the Alien was doing there!!!
Eva and Angie came to visit us and in the afternoon Jenny and
Decibel came too. I forgot to tell that someone else came for coffee
too *S* but You probably know.....
Angie love to run through the tunnel!!!
Star was very tired after a while.
Hallooooooooo here I come again!!!
Gloria can not run through the tunnel, but she can sit on a chair at
the table and look very sweet. Rolex who is the lacy one that ALWAYS
are sitting under his three and smell at the flowers...suddenly
found a NEW smell that he was very fond of...........girls!!!!!!!!
He really fell in love with Angie, but it was Devlina that was in
season (he didn't understand that).
Gloria try to eat Diamond up!!!!
Angie would like to eat the same as us.
Decibel and Gloria they are not sisters, just
In the afternoon Jenny, Rune and I try to take new pictures of some
of the dogs, it was not easy, and we had no patience today. I hurt my
heel string again...damned. But now we know what to do with Rolex in
the show ring. Just to let a bitch in season run some meters in front
of him, then he run like hell.
Wednesday 19 September 2007
When we woke up this morning Rune couldn´t open his eyes without a
terrible pain in his head and eyes...something was really wrong! We
called the doctor and in some hours there came a car and take him to
a special clinic in the hospital in Skövde. He couldn´t see anything
and I have to lead him, and give him something to eat and put
everything in his hands so he could find it. The taxi driver follow
him into the clinic where he met a special doctor for eyes. He had
an inflammation in his eye behind the cornea so they prepare his eye
so he couldn´t feel anything and he have to take medicine one time
every hour this week. Because he still have problem with his
limb inflammation and eat lot of medicines for that they told him
that sometimes the inflammation can spread in whole his body for a
while before he is well again..
Rune and Gloria resting. Star wonder what he shall do
with this blue "thing". But he was very clever after a
while. Diamond just looking.
Rune think he looks like a POPSTAR ON TOUR in his sunglasses!
Everyone would like to lay in my knee when the TV program starts.
Daddy is sitting in the bed looking.
Sugardaddy would like to look at a "Julia Roberts Movie" with me
before he go to bed.
The other dogs were sleeping, they have seen the movie before.
Star and Rolex behind Diamonds back. Star is giving Rolex a
goodnight hug! And so do I to All Of You My Friends In the Whole
World!!!!!!!!!! The clock is now 4 in the night/morning and
Rune have to be back to the doctor at 9 tomorrow morning and we got
friends for a visit tomorrow at 10 o'clock, so I have no choice......just
to go to bed this early today!
We were both so very happy that we in the last minute decide NOT to
go to Finland for a dog show tomorrow, it was the meaning but we
found out that it was to expensive for us now with all our
this summer (as always) and with all our pain we really need to stay
home and rest for a while *S* but we think we rest more at a show
than at home with all dogs. We wish Kattis and Helena and PO and
Carin Good Luck in Finland this weekend (and of course we would like
to be there with You*S*).
Tuesday 18 September 2007
Up 7.30....I really don't know how we get up..our dogs just looked
at us and continue to sleep for some more hours. We have to do a lot
at home when You have been away for some days....
At ten o'clock Samou and his parents was coming on visit, and all
our dogs was so happy to get a new friend who would like to share
their breakfast with them. He was drinking in their water and eat
their dog food, and they were licking him totally wet. He was just
They were in a hurry to try to reach the boat to Finland in time, so
after some hours our dogs have to say goodbye to Samou.
Jonnie was coming for breakfast and continue to play with the dogs.

Bosson and Rolex sleeping too. Bosson was out, and when he want to
come back in he try to tell Jill to open the door, but she was so
tired or didn't see him through the dirty glass door???

not interested at all.........

One more show today, a Special Show, and 29 Dalmatians entered.
Yesterday in the final ring Disco didn't get anything but he showed
very well, and I took a picture of first place podium until next
We met a breeder from Russia in Denmark, she was there to mate a dog
for a friend (not Dalmatian), and she came to us and told us that
she have been mailing with us some months ago about one of our
dogs...so small the world can be! She is the producer of the Russian
Dalmatian Book of The Year every year and we got some to take home
and read (look at pictures of dogs), so interesting! Thank You Very
Much! We will really try to come next year as we talked about.
Dallise Bossons daughter was best BABY, we were so happy to meet her
5 months old. We never forget when Lise came to us in Sweden for
mating. She have a driving licence but no car, so she hired one and
drove to us in a snowstorm in February just to mate, well done off a

PO look at all lovely first courses. Runes
roasted parma and Anne's goose liver. I got fish with a large piece of
bacon (strange) as mane course, something was very exclusive and
remarkable, but everything that was over we give to PO who was used
with all this superb food. Because we have no dogs there to give it
to. Even if Fabian was running around in the hotel and took the
elevator from floor to floor before we found him and Rune N put him
in their car until we have finished the dinner....*S*.
Unfortunately I didn't see it, be sure I would have taken photos of
him if I had seen it *S*! So sorry that I couldn´t show You that.
To the dessert Rune hold a
speech to his wife, and
many times he dip his jacket in his dessert, I try to save his
jacket every time, but he thought I was interested in something else
*S*! Even P O hold a speech to the hosts, and thank them for a
unforgettable evening. We moved into the bar some hours later and
the evening continue...........We really hope we can celebrate their
GOLD WEDDING anniversary 2032 at the same place again, and show our
future dogs in Bröndby the same weekend then *S*. If we are alive
and healthy of course!!!
The Hostess, beautiful more than ever this
Friday 14 September 2007
Nothing new to hear that we were so tired when the
morning bell was
ringing. I thought that most thing we have to continue before we
were starting our trip was already done. But when I start to read on
my note what I have to do before we go I found out that I haven't
done ANYTHING that I really HAVE TO DO before we can drive from
home... Runes notes was almost ready, and he was away most of the
day yesterday....maybe he had put some of his things on my list
????? No I have to admit that so much other things happens here
all the time that I have done first *S*.....as always! I'm a
specialist to make things in LAST minutes before we go...... Most of
the time when Rune and all dogs are ready waiting in the car I am
cleaning the floor in the house and running around from room to room
to se if I can clean something more. I hate to leave the house to
the kennel girls with lot of things to do, without things they
should do with the dogs.
Devlin have been running for two days in and out to the car, because
he is always so afraid that we will go without him. This year he
have to stay home when we travel, because he can't stay still for a
long time in the car because of his operation two years ago for his
disk hernia in his neck. After a big operation and when he was
totally lame for some weeks he have learned to walk again, but not
as before. But we have decide that he will come with us to Denmark,
that's why we take the caravan with us so he can walk around there
when we are at the show, because he can absolutely not stay in a
cage. As soon as we opened the door to the caravan he jump in and
occupied one cage in the caravan and pretend to sleep......*S*!
He couldn´t believe his ears when we told him to jump into the car
instead together with Jill and the puppy, where we have made a nice
place for them to sleep..... Devlina have one of the cages behind
and Expo and Disco share the large cage together. Our problem was
that Devlina was in season at day 11, but everything went well. We
put her in a fabric cage up in our bed in the caravan with a blanket
over, and when they couldn´t see her the stupid boys did not think
that she was there *S*! Only Devlin would like to jump up to her,
but he is not strong enough in his legs, so after he tried some
times he understand that that lovely girl was nothing for him.
We start our trip at 15.00 and after many hours of accidences, road
workers and many many problems on the road, we entered to the
camping in Bröndby some minutes after 1 o'clock in the night.....10
hours!!!!!! Normally it take 6 hours with caravan after the car, but
it was so stormy that we wasn't sure that the bridge between Sweden
and Denmark was open.......but it was, we where lucky!
Thursday 13 September 2007
Yesterday Rune was travelling from early morning to noon...and I was
trying to make our caravan ready for our trip to Denmark. The
meaning was that we were going to Denmark early today but we were
totally exhausted after all things we have to do yesterday. Rune had
to go to Västerås because we got a buyer from Germany for J Perfect
Match, and they have to know her BAER result first, and it was not
easy to get time at the clinic in Västerås already this week. If she
was full hearing we could bring her with us to Denmark, so the buyers
don't have to travel here to Sweden......... Se was full hearing and
both her new owners and we where so happy.
Finally today we have to give six dogs a bath and prepare for Jenny
to take care of the dogs because she was working today and tomorrow
so we have to wait to go until tomorrow afternoon.
We got the result from the bloodiest of Minis rabies today, and it
was to low, so Mini travelled with Rune and Perfect Match to
Västerås. They met Helena Berg and her mother so they take care of
Mini for us for a while (wonderful people)!!!
Star after his bath...
Someone was here for coffe!!!!!!! And I have costumers until late in
J Perfect Match "Match" is resting after her long trip to Västerås
today. She don't know that we will take her to Denmark tomorrow, and
that she will continue to Germany at Saturday.

Today My Aunt was 87 years old, and we went to
her and my mother in their summerhouse!
Of course she got a bag with a dachshound on, and a scarves with
cats. Three years ago she got a wallet with the same motive , but
she think it was sooo nice that she cannot afford to use it, let's
se how it will be with this bag *S*!
I have spent more times with my Aunt than with my mother when I grew
up. She had no children of her own and we have been very close to
each other, and she and my father and I have the same humour. My
mother and my Uncle was the prudent ones......Today she can't
remember things from day to day but sometimes she find out things
from passed days. When she saw me today she guess that I have been
about 39 years now (unfortunately not) and most of the time when she
meet Jennie (my daughter) and Ellie (her daughter) she think that it
is Me and Jennie as a little girl. Time goes by very fast. Today she
had a very good day and eat lot of cake and laugh a lot, her lovely
character is still there. She have always had dogs and I loved to be
with her because of that, but I hated all her dogs because they were
so jealous when I was in there home my Aunt and I spend all time
together that we could from the day I was born, and she followed me
to all doctors and other things when my mother was working.
In my grandmothers very old house where both my mother and my Aunt
is born. Rune found a photo of me and one of my Aunts dogs, when I
was about 13 years old.
My Aunt and Rune walking between the new house and the old house.
They have been sitting here at the kitchen table many days before
school eating breakfast..75 years ago......
I look like I'm pregnant, but it is only cake!
I haven't been in the sun at all this rainy summer.
Puzzle was there with us.
Monday 10 September 2007
Some days ago Rune got his diagnose from his doctor, he have
sleeping apné. (the brain get not enough oxygen when he sleeps),
that's why he is so tired all the time and fall asleep when he sit
and talk with You (it is not necessary that you ARE boring) and he
have hard to remember things we have talked about. They will give
some medicines and something else, maybe a tent over our bed in our
bedroom filled with oxygen so we /he will be quick and fit for fight
again. Maybe we get so much energy that we never sleep *S*! The
doctor talked about a pump over his mouth in the night but he has
claustrophobic after an accident when he was young and almost died
when snow was falling over him in a snow cave, and some years later
he almost drowned when he get water over his face (when he take a
shower in the morning). It is not easy to have claustrophobic....
Easy for her to say - she NEVER take a shower! (sign Rune) It is
because all dog shampoo that I'm allowed to use is empty. Rune don't
let me use his CHANEL (sign Flo).
Today I have been home all day long cleaning the house and
Rune went to his hairdresser to make his hair nicer, and later
on at his dietist to learn how to eat *S* and then at the vet with
Puzzel (Timanka´s Playmate) to take a blood test to se if she is in

Pictures I found in my mobile phone from my Favourite Store in
Örebro. PK Design. Next month we go back again, I look forward
to that, it is better than Christmas Eve for me. We only go there
twice a year. Rune always drive VERY fast when we come close
to Örebro because he is afraid that I'm in shopping mode (she always
IS!, sign Rune)...and he knows what it means. And he think that I
get soooo many new ideas of changing at home when I have been there.
Last time half the staff help us to the car with all things I bought,
and they let us out at the personal entrance so we don't have to go
so far to get to our car. Rebecka, Hanna and Jenny never forget our
trips to dog shows during the last four years....Rune drive faster
and faster when we come closer to Örebro, and hope that I forget
where we are.....and suddenly I scream...STOP.......turn right I
HAVE TO GO TO PK DESIGN......JUST A QUICK LOOK, I don't need
anything today!!!! Be he know me now, as soon as I'm in the store I
find many things that I have to buy for Roy most of the time,
because he need them, and I call him and describe what we are looking
at...ok he say if you think I need it I probably do *S*...he is so
easy to convince... And when Rune se me with my arms full of things
I say...it is for Roy.......ok....but that was a nice thing he
says...maybe we should have the same.......Oooo My Darling..... I'm
not hard to convince about that *S*! The only problem is that
we almost have to put the dogs and our kennel girls at the roof of
the car. My favourite trips are when we have our caravan with us,
then we have room for everything.
I bought this fabric last time (febr -07) I only need a sewing
machine.....but I don't want any. I hate to sew, most of the time I
leave the fabric to my dressmaker, but it take so many months before
I get it back, but if I had left it there in February I probably got
it back now, stupid Me!
In the afternoon Anna, Ola and Clara was coming. (They have had two
Dalmatians from me CH J Sweet Senorita o CH J Triple and Touch)
today they have two cockers from Rune.......They really miss their
Dalmatians and even Clara that almost couldn´t remember "Ellie" and
"Martin" played with our big and clumsy dogs all the time, I
know who was most happy.....Clara or our dogs.

The judge in the ring in Sofiero. First
meeting 2006 between J Run Wild Run Free.
Carin and Russin second best bitch with CAC.
Hanna was here EARLY to take Expo with her, I heard him slip around
on the floor in the hall and snort loudly, that is the way that he
sounds when he is laughing a lot...of course he was very happy when
Hanna came just to say hallo to him, and then he was allowed to
follow her to her car, there were also Rebecka, Dilba and Puzzel and
she was in season, HURRAY! What a good start at of the day.
Many hours later when he and Hanna enter the show
ring in Sofiero, in south of Sweden, it was enough with all joy for the day the judge
think. Hanna felt that the judge disgraced her in the ring, and she
told her many times that she couldn´t show the dog (she is REALLY a
very good handler) and have shown Expo a couple of times before in a
perfect way, maybe to good, what do I know, I was in my lovely bed
at home. I called Lena E that I know was there looking at the
Dalmatians and she said that there were nothing wrong with Hannas
showing at all. After the competition when I heard which dogs that
was placed I understand that she (the judge) prefer dogs with lower
legs than Expo, and I understand that, but that is the way he looks
like. Hopefully he get his last CAC next time because he is over 2
years now. Better to wait until another show to become a Champion
than cut his legs of in Sofiero!!!!!
We are so happy that Ch Timanka´s Playmate became BOB and nr two
best bitch with her first CAC was J Run Wild Run Free, Devlinas
sister. Congratulations to You both!
Late in the evening Hannas and Expo came back and even Jens was here
then and we eat dinner together and chatted about the day until two
o'clock in the night...
Expo doesn't care what prize he get, he know that he is "One In A
Million" for us. And he was pleased to be nr 4 best Male so the
other boys can get something sometimes......I have already more than
20 CAC he laugh......(but here he is only 4,5 months old and without
Some photos from the plant school some days ago. Rune hates to go
here with me because first of all he have to carry flowers and
plants to the car many times and later at home he have to

Jonnie have cleaned some cars this morning and was very hungry for
breakfast. Devlina was interested when it smells bacon, Jonnie asked
her what she was doing....she told him not to be worried, she was just exercising against the bench,
because she like to stretch in the morning, strange dog.....
Jonnie and Gloria.
Jill think that Gloria talks to much so she put her ear over her
mouth, it worked.
So good to stay home this weekend. Expo will travel with Hanna to
Sofiero tomorrow, she is going there with her own bitch.
We planted some new flowers at my fathers grave, only 250 meter from
our house, in the winter we can se the candles on his gravestone
from our window at first floor.
When we came back home, Rolex had fall asleep (as usually)
sitting in his best chair, watching over his fathers "Kvack"...
Do You really have to use FLASH ?????? You wake me up, but
look......sssssssshhhhhhh....."kvack" is still sleeping, OK then I
have to stay still until he wake up too....puh!
Thursday 6 September 2007
Today we were shopping some plants for the garden, and for my
fathers grave, we start to plant it in the evening but have to go in
to see something important on TV *S*.
When we where at the plant school many miles from home Hanna called
me and told me that she was at my house to get a present for her
friend that I had wrapped in last night, there was a car standing
outside our house. She went out and ask them what they were doing
there. They told her that they have "saved" Devlina when she was
running at E 20 the highway close to our house!!!!! Damned dog.....!
She can jump over almost everywhere OR maybe she have climbed over
Runes ladders into the garden? Thank God for those nice people that
stop and take her away from the road. Good Bless You!!!
They have lift her over the fence to Bosson and Expo and Disco
and Donna, but she immediately jump over again (it have never
happened before) but now she probably think it was really fun that
someone come to talk/play with her so she would like to be with them
until we came home??? Hanna brought her into the kitchen and locked
all doors very carefully.
There was lot of blood at the floor in the kitchen when we came
home, Devlina have started her second season today. We bought
something for coffee today.....the cake was NOT that good as it
look. (Can I say when I have eat a lot and I'm full *S*). It taste
like chocolate pudding (I love that) but was not that good when You
think about how much this chocolate pudding cost instead of the
Jonnie was happy, he have sold one of his tractors today, and he
have been helping the guy that will ship it to north of Sweden, to
load the car on a truck and trailer.
And he got one more old WRECK to take care of....phew!
Seven try to count how many teethes the Great Dane lady have.........Probably
You don't believe me, but her name is .....Florence *S*, even in the
pedigree. Edna and Seven terrorise Andre when he try to sleep, poor
man. But now he is happy, he don't need to sit in the speedboat with
seven anymore when they are driving somewhere. She don't shit in the
car , good girl!

Sometimes at TV when girls or ladies have to give an answer of what
is one of the most important things they look for when they chose a
partner, they say that HUMOUR, is very important.......I agree with
them to 100 %. Often it is enough to just look at each other, you
don't need to say what you are thinking about...and we both start to
laugh......I thought that was something that you develop when you
have lived together/or grown up together for many many years (my ex
husband and I had that connection, and still have) , but if you and
your partner really fit together you can discover that you have that
special connection already after a while. You can sit in a room with
lot of people and something happens that no one discover, but at
exactly same second you can look at your partner even if he/she is
standing in the other side of the room and in his eyes see that he
have been thinking about exactly the same thing as me......and we
can start to laugh so people around you think you are really
If you don't have HUMOUR it is much harder to live a happy life I
think. I often see funny things in very small things that happened
and is not often sad or depressed when some people lie about me or
tell other people bad things that they have made up about me (or my
dogs, men *S*, children, houses etc.etc) just to be EVIL. Most
of the time I just feel sorry for them, they probably have a dull
life them selves...poor people. And think about it, that some people
find YOU so interesting that they have to follow up on You, then You
really have to be someone important *S*!!! Don't they have a life of
In Swedish I will write a kind of proverb that I thought about some
Tänk om det fanns en God karamell,
Som gjorde varje elak människa snäll.
Jag skulle köpa massor o ge Alla som behöver.
Kanske ta en själv för säkerhets skull.
MEN DET BLEV INGEN ÖVER!
What if there was a Good caramell
that made every bad person a Good person
I should buy plenty and give one to Everyone that need it
Maybe one for my self - just in case
BUT THEY WHERE ALL GONE!
When the Cake Man came for coffe today he hadn´t any sweet things
with him, but we got loveley flowers instead....much better!
Most of you probably don't think this is so funny at all, but I
laugh so much.....Rune have been looking for a rake for almost four
weeks now because we have to put out the gravel in the dog yard....I
told him to buy a new one yesterday, but then he said that he will
go and look at one more place in the garden first *S*.....I know
that HE knew where it was, he just don't want to do that boring work,
that's why he told me that he couldn´t find it....if some MEN is
reading this and wonder how I know that.........I just can tell
YOU...........that I'm a WOMAN, and that is why!!!!!! All women know
exactly what I mean.........*S*.
There are so many things I could tell you - but I'm too much of a
Gentleman to say it in public! (sign Rune)
First of all he try to climber over the fence, but his legs was
short. Then he went away to find something to stay on at the other
side.....I was laughing, but that was not nice of me...he really
have lot of problem just now with his legs and swollen limbs, and
when he get caught with his feet at the fence and was standing there
with his foot fixed at the top of the fence for some minutes I
laugh so I cry.....and every time he looked into the kitchen I turn
around and hide my camera (I know - not nice of me at all). When he
finally came over the fence he walk straight on to the rake....just
what I suspected!! Then he went to the pool and throw lot of thing
into the water ???? When he turn around I saw that it was chlorine
tablets for the water...I thought it was chestnuts from the big
three there.....and then he start to climb back. I promise you that
both ladders that he put up to climb over the fence will be exactly
there until next spring!!!!!
After a while when he came into the kitchen he asked if I had seen
what a smart solution he have made in the garden......I looked
innocent and said no..????? And he told me about the ladders.......*S*!
In the evening when he saw the pictures....he didn't say anything....we
just looked at each other and laugh A LOT!!!!
I have to carry my camera around my neck all the time now so he
can't take pictures of me when I do "funny" things......
Last night Gloria and Devlina eat chips. Father and daughter, you
see it at their eye colour. Rune destroy my new show dog, so he can
win it all with Mini Mel.....he is afraid of the competition so he
learn Gloria to SIT!
We where out in the store to take pictures of all things with
dog motive until 3 o'clock in the night, we need to sell everything
now to get more space for other things there. We put it under Flo´s
Miracle Of Love/Övrigt and try to sell it on internet for almost
half the prize.

Yesterday evening Rune got a terrible job, he put a new
ketchup bottle in the freezer and next time he opened the door it
fell out in the floor and smashed ALL over the kitchen!!!! RED spots
all over........he love to do kitchen work like this....unfortunately
I don't have any picture how it looked at the floor from the
beginning because my camera was ketchup all over, so I have to clean
it first. Toyboy just tried his new winter coat so he only get
ketchup in his head and over the coat of course. It was 1,5 liter in
the bottle but it seams like 10 liters before everything was cleaned
This morning Rune and Toyboy drive to Strömstad about 250 km from
home, to meet Toyboy´s new owners when they came with the ferry from
Norway. It was a grey and rainy day at home, but when they came to
Strömstad it was a perfect summerday.....
Toyboy loved his new owners from the first minute and they loved him.
He is now named ZINO.
I have to stay home with the other dogs, and
otherwise Mr Cake haven't got any coffee at 12 o'clock today....puh!!!
When he called and ask me to put on the coffee I said.....PLEASE
buy anything to me today, I really do not need more sweet things. So
he ONLY bought two of my favourite cakes with raspberry, cream and
meringue...and of course I have to taste (eat it up) mine, damned!!!
Six days in the week he buy marsipancake, because he and Rune love
that best, and I have eaten it soooo often now that I can stay over
that now, but not those lovely things.....mmmmmmmm!
Devlin was not so happy when Roy only bought TWO cakes...........he
couldn´t find HIS *S*!!!!!
Today I decide that it will be Sugardaddy and Splendid Choice, that
will share the first time of the day together with me and the older
All the other puppies can walk in the kitchen too from the backyard
through the kennel and the small hall and they are in our kitchen,
but there is a fence so they don't destroy everything if I'm not
there all the time. It is perfect because when they need to do
something they rush back thought the hall, through the kennel and
out so they don't need to pee inside. They are so clever at this now.
They are so happy when Jonnie is coming. Devlina love to jump into
their area and eat their food up...stupid dog. If her food is
outside the fence she don't eat it *S*.
First the puppies played and have fun together, but their sister and
brothers eat up a filled chair with LOT of foam rubber in, all over
the kennel and I don't want them to eat that up it could be
dangerous, so I have to clean it up at once. Thirty minutes earlier
I have been there cleaning the kennel, so they probably think it
look TO perfect.
When I enter the kitchen again after I have used the
for 20 minutes I did not hear anything from Daddy and his sister so
I believed they have fall asleep. Jill was sleeping in her chair and
Devlina was out with the small puppies and Devlin was sleeping in a
sofa at the small terrace outside the kitchen. When I was looking
around I suddenly saw the small DEVILS.........
They have found " a salad" in the kitchen window, and they decide to
eat breakfast (again). Since the damage already have happened I took
my camera before I scream at them to stop........I told Splendid
Choice that she was NOT a Splendid Choice just now, her glory have
fall of her head..............AND THEN I HAVE IT!!!!!!! Her name
will be GLORIA.....
it will fit her perfect ( not just now, but most of
And a judge that loved her father Devlin is
named Gloria Mitcham-Geringer, we often talk about her and
hopefully meet her somewhere again in the future, then I will show
her my GLORIA.
After that incidence they just sit and look out into the garden for
a while, and Sweet Gloria
got her glory back again. Daddy looked very guilty..........
The guilty one?
Jill said-: Don´t look at me I have been sleeping. Gloria pretend
not to hear.
Monday 3 September 2007
Rune went to our vet with Toyboy and Mini Mel, we have to have a
health certificate for Toyboy before his trip to Norway tomorrow, and
they took a blood test of Mini to se if her rabies is ok so she can
go with us to Denmark in two weeks. At the same time Rune will meet
Carola so Perfect can go back home again to her coowner.
I just got a sms from Hanna, she send congratulations to Expo at his
2 years day today! We had forgot. So.....
Congratulations to All Puppies in The
Astonishings E-Litter born 3 sept 2005

Sunday 2 September 2007
I woke up when the phone was ringing. Jenny called to tell me that
Mini Mel have been best puppy out of 6 Dalmatian puppies, and that
Disco just have been best male with CAC and CACIB.....ALREADY!!!!!!
I said......what is the clock. Jenny told me that it was almost 12
o'clock. Both Devlin, Jonnie and Me have been sleeping MANY hours.......and
I haven't heard the puppies yet, but they can go out from the
puppy room when they like to, but they should be hungry now........
I feel much much better after a long good night sleep and when I
came down into the kitchen all puppies still was asleep. It was so
calm in the house and the puppies looked at me as they think....Ohhh
are You coming already????
Mini Mel was BIS 2 Puppy , Disco was BOS, J Joyride was BOB and BIG
2, and My Breedinggroup Bis 3. Jens send me a picture from this
summer at me in my new Dalmatian dress....I think it looks nice.
Nice cocards today. Princess Devlina soooooooo tired after sharing a
pizza with Jenny, late in the evening when they came back from Högbo.
Decibel did not understand anything when Jenny showed her the
cockade.....Oyo something to eat....or??? We will have a pink one
when You are old enough Jenny told her, but Decibel didn't care at
all. Top Model and Decibel looked at Jill, but she was so tired of
puppies that she took a blanket over her head so she couldn´t see or
hear them.......but they saw her....
We got news from Netherlands today!
Andre and Diana practice everyday with SEVEN, they have learned her
to stay like this in the show ring, strange people!
And IF she can hold one of her ear standing UP, when the judge is
coming she will be nr one they told her, and she CAN!!! Hurray!!!
We bought this "Dalmatian"??????? from Netherlands, is it really a
real genuine Dalmatian or a POINTER??????
