Woke up to a clear and sunny morning in a horse
At 11 we went to the vet and one hour later we were on our way back
We went to this vet because he is one of the best to read x-ray (he
has done it for MANY years for SKK)...I hate to wait 3 weeks
until we got the result and most of time the vet says that this
looks sooo good, and then You got C hips on Your dogs and get a
chock. Better to know as soon as possible..
In Sweden they start with a "new" system to measure hips about 1,5
year ago..and there is a horrible increase of "bad" hips...some
had nothing to breed for and got the permission to go back to the "old"
system!??! But this sounds not fair at all...the same for all or the
"old" system for all!!!
Anyway have we got some dogs with C last years and did not
understand anything when we together with the vet looked at the x
ray...hips was perfect as before (there are 8-10 generations behind
with A hips) and we start to get C anyway????? Was it all a waste for
all this years to x-ray and breed on only free dogs...I don't know
Now we have got to know that if half of the hip
joint is not at least 50% inside the hip, they will automatically
get C even though it fits perfectly otherwise...so I think it is different between
C and C after knowing this. I think we have to look at the x ray and
see what kind of C you get on your dog and use a free dog not only
with A, but.... with deep A.
The result for our three dogs today was not good at all....probably
two C and maybe one A. In some weeks we got the official result,
but now we know what we have to expect. We got the chock
today...and that was better than to go and believe they were perfect
in 3 more weeks.
So it was a really sad day for us...we were starting to talk about
what to do with our breeding. We have since a year decided not to
breed that much anymore...but this was really nothing that we have
On our way home we should go to look for a new caravan, but we did
not have the interest anymore so we drive directly home.
We were home at 8 o'clock...depressed and tired. Thank You all
friends for trying to cheere us up.

Jonnie is now 18 Years
Old.....my little boy *S*, he was born at 7.42 in this early and
beautiful morning 18 years ago...on a sunny Saturday in September. He was 3.780 gram and 54 cm long...
Jimmie and Jonnie Oct 1990. Jonnie have no time to
close his eyes because he was soo impressed by everything his big brother was doing (still is)!
Some hours later Jennie and her
boyfriend Curth Ove (Jonnies godfather) came with Jimmie to look at the
newborn...Jimmie had lot of presents that we made for him and the
baby before..so he was sitting at the hospital opening presents with
toys and trucks of course.....! I think that Jimmie was most happy
for these, and he was showing everything for Jonnie that on that
time just was lying there and look with his big blue eyes (as we
know that changes soon, and Jimmie had to protect all his things for
this new curious active little boy that was all over *S*).
Jonnie with my dear father, in
Jonnie at Liseberg this summer!
We are still in Finland, the
boat to Sweden will leave at 16 Finnish time (15 Swedish).
We talked about this trip long
time ago, but Jonnie want to wait and celebrate his birthday
together with his driving licence, when he get it in a while...than it
will be a party with two reasons.
My dear friend Helena in
Stockholm often send me photos from her days in the big city, here
Helena is out in the forest every day (I did not
think it was more than concrete in Stockholm).
When I got this photo last week I was almost on my
way to call Mark in England and to jump in my car for a trip to
Look, here can You drink coffee and eat CAKE, as
much as You want for 35:- .....4€......!!!!
I can promise that IF Mark and I go there
together..the shop have to close in some days *S*!
Mmmmmmmm too good to be true!
Here is a little girl that want to be a model *S*!
Ellie 9 year in January.
Very soon there will be one more grandchild....only
some days left now for Nathalie!
Last week I got an sms that says......Tell Just
ONE word about ME! And I ask some friends and family to do the same
I got so many different words back....Creative
(from my mother), Boss (from my daughter *S*), Honestly (Bente,
Jenny), Nice (Helena, Nathalie), Dearest (Hanna), Fantastic (Nyhammers,
Hildegun), shopaholic (Ewa, she know me well *S*), Wonderful (Rune),
Rich (Jonnie *S*), Skilled (Louice), Sharp-tongued (Anita..should SHE
say *S*), Lovable (Sissel my dear), Well-known???, Famous!!! ha ha ha
this was fun.
As You can see I was sitting here in the caravan
writing in my diary and Rune have been meeting Slava and Olga with the
Russian bitch for mating again. After that he came in and was just
SUDDENLY I looked at my watch !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my god...the boat I scream...we should be at the boat in
Mariehamn in about 5 MINUTES!!
I dressed my self in 3 minutes...put all loose
things together in the caravan and Rune start to walk the dogs very
quickly and to hang the caravan after the car, and all these things
took 15 minutes in a really hurry!!!!
In over 100 km we were driving against the boat
and Mariehamn, it was 35 km and some slow traffic...I was talking to
Jenny in the phone and I got almost panic when I was thinking about
to stay here at Åland one more day if we do not reach the boat in
time. She try to calm me with saying that IF SOMEONE can drive there
....Rune can..she have been traveling with him so many early
mornings in Sweden that she know that he drive like a crazy!! But it
was not easy with the caravan after the car..
We should have been at the boat at 15 hour...BUT
we were there 15.45 and the boat leave at 16.....we got NO problem
with the in check..thank god. Puuuuuuuuuuh!!!!!
Last second to the boat. One of us need two
Perfect happy to follow us home again after 3,5
month in Finland.
Happy to be at the boat on our way to Stockholm,
and we went up to the cafeteria to eat dinner at once....
On the other side we drove
directly to Upplands
Väsby where we will be for x-ray tomorrow morning.
Hopeless to have caravan this time of the year in
Sweden..everything is closed...and only answering machine at camping
places..no place to stop..we try at golf clubs and more..but at 6
o'clock everything was closed!!!
After two hours we still haven't found a place to
stay..so we continue to the veterinarians address..maybe there were
a big parking close to the practice?
And Rune need electricity for his breathing
Beautiful in the daylight..but we could not see
anything in the dark last night.
We drive into smaller "roads" and finally we were
at the clinic....NO we can't be standing here...and NOT turn around
Finally we have to reverse 300 m in the dark with me
walking behind the caravan...I can tell You that it took time...we
could turn around with a small house were a girl lived..she came to
us and ask if she could help....we decide to reverse more and stay at
a grass road to the horse yard...so we will not be in the way for
her or anyone else. She offered electricity and we got water from her
too....Sooo happy to meet a friendly person now..the clock was
almost eleven and we were tired and hungry and so were our dogs that
only have got breakfast today.
I made a bag with a scarf with horses and one
with dogs for the girl....her name was Agnes, beautiful person,
thank You for everything!
We looked at TV and fell asleep rather soon.

Food on the boat.
When we passed Uppsala I said

took up my phone to send an sms..at the same time it was calling.
It was TEEMU...they were at
Åland and have seen that we were entered in the catalogue..so we
will meet tonight, funny...we love to meet the whole family for the
first time!!!!(And we met in the afternoon at the showplace).
Teemu and Luca 2,5 month old. Just as calm as his
Titti have been at the show

They have been in Finland for a month with two Dalmatians and Titti
and Luca and his trailer, and all other things that they need...and
we CAN't understand how in hell they could get it in their
car..probably Expo was sitting on the roof while they were
driving....he should have been soooo happy with that..sweet and
crazy dog *S*.
AND we will get Perfect back
today......love to meet that sweet girl soon again.
And Rune drive back to Mariehamn after putting our
caravan at the camping......he should meet a russian family with a
bitch to mate.
It was ready to go to bed in the late evening!
I have been
sleeping some hours tonight and than I have been resting, but when I
stood up at 9 o'clock I feel fine in my hand and arm again, thank
We have so much
to do today...we should have been on our way to Åland/Finland
already but because I couldn't do anything yesterday we were so late
In the middle of
the day there come a boy from Gotland with Jonnies Birthday present
(He is 18 at Monday)
What he got????
A new car of course *S*..No no, NOT NEW but a normal car ready for
the road and a very nice one that won lot of trophies on auto shows.
Two years ago
Jonnie met this car with the boys mother in Visby when we were there
at dog show. He thought the car sound so good so he went to talk
with the lady....than the car was not that extreme as it is
today...and the boys mother remember Jonnie that summer, who will
forget him??? *S*
Two o'clock in
the evening I wash the two last dogs and then we sleep for some hours
I called at 6 o'clock to the
hospital and I can come there at 9....now my thumb all fingers and
underarm and even longer up was attacked of this
something...probably I got poison from that evil thistle that hurt
me last night..
When I came to the doctor he
said that I immediately should have Betapred 15 tablets in
water....to stop the spread of the poison in my body...BUT I
should have taken it LAST EVENING at once!
If it had been one of my dogs I
would possibility thought about that directly *S*!
In the afternoon it was even
more worse..hand, arm, back and breast.....I do not have time for
this just now!!!!
One o'clock in the night it
stopped burn and hurt in my thumb...finally.
Wednesday 24 September 2008
I have really problems to sleep
now a days....I am awake all night long even if I am lying in the bed and I am
tired..warm..cold..dreaming..thinking about everything...sometimes I
go to sleep when Rune go for work and sleep for two or three hours.
Today I fall asleep about 8.30 and woke up
11.30.... I had to hurry because I should drive Anita to the bus in
Skara in about one hour.
She came with four!!!! lovely cakes for Me and
Rune and Jonnie......Roy called from Asia and ask me to put them
into the freezer...this type is the best HE can get. Anita leaving
for South Africa to judge Rottweiler on a special show. She will be
back next Wednesday, hopefully!
Tuesday 23 September 2008
Clean the bathroom for 3 hours, I
love to clean, but when Rune is home he always want us to be in the
same room to do things. Now I have time again to really start in one
end of the house and go through everything. Hopefully I am ready

Monday 22 September 2008
In the evening we had a man
here from Agria (our dogs
insurance company) for some hours!
We have had sooooo much
problems last year with the communication that we really are so
tired about their people on phone in Stockholm, and worst of all
for our puppybuyers that really have to fight to get their money
back after some injury...Agria are really un polite, and we are very
tired of them right now!
Hopefully we get justice
together with this very nice man that will try to help us now, this
is the last chance for Agria.
Sunday 21 September 2008
In the garden all day...but You could almost not
see that we have done anything in the evening...Should we could stay
in an apartment?
Just to continue with this damned work!!!!
Saturday 20 September 2008
Hardly three more weeks to go
for Nathalie...poor girl, I'm used with a big belly but she is
normally soooo thin that I get nervous that her stomach will
We are soooooo curious now!
Mizzan is curious too but she
continue to play with Nathalie's underwear instead *S*!
I've done a break in, as you
can see. I found the magic button for Florence dairy (hi hi
hi). Now, let me see what I can write. I could lie and say Rune and
Florence are such nice people. Hospitable, always gives a helping
hand. Not demanding nor spiteful, but I won't lie so instead I will
write how nice I am. Beautiful, slim, intelligent, rich, etc, etc,
but I don't want to brag so I'll change the subject to today's
event. I drove past their house and guess what I saw. Florence
actually doing gardening, trying to plant the flowers she bought for
many months ago (of course now dead) but does she care, NO.
By shouting and talking loud, would you believe there poor little
petal leaves started to shake and slowly raise their little faces to
the sun. They simply did not dare not to grow. So, what did Rune do?
Well he probably whished he could crawl in to a flower pot. Poor
"little" man, he was cutting hedges, grass, branches, scurrying
around with the wheelbarrow and hardly daring to look up at Flo
standing on the doorstep with her now worn down whip. Anyway,
when I left I could see her taking him to the water well for some
Pepsi. Still, Florence is a happy couple *s*
Well, I'm away to walk my dogs in the woods and hope I can yet again
scare the bloody life our of some mushroom pickers.
I'm sure You all know who's the
writer of this!!!!!
Anita of course!
Now it is ME Flo again!!!
She have been here for 5 hours
now...just standing and look at us with our hard work in the
garden...not for a second she was thinking about to help us...just
talking about her self...how thin she is (she is on a diet on day
11..I think it took some fat from her brain too)..how brown she
is...and she showed us her stomach at least five times the first hour
she was here.
Then she demand a cup of coffee
so I had to go in the house to make it for her....and had to stop
She is really a
Then she was sitting at my
computer for 3 hour and she was using my glasses..it was tooo long
for her to walk to her car (outside the frontporch) and get her own
glasses. I have to rumble around here in the house and can't do
anything without my glasses, but it doesn't bother her at all.
Anyway she is a really good friend, and I love to
have her on visit *S*! (But not every day!)
Now I wait for her diet to stop
so she can be more normal again, and bring something with fat and
sugar for the coffee here many days every week!!
Friday 19 September 2008
Today there were NO water in the morning, but in
the afternoon it was back again....something have been broken with
the pump..and it was really problem to not have any water at
In the late evening Jonnie saw that someone have
vandalised one of his cars...so we have to call the police and the
insurance company, but we realised very soon that we have to pay
more for the insurance self risk than things that was stolen and
No use to have insurance sometimes..and the worst
thing was that just that A tractor was sold and we should deliver it
Of course we could not do that now. Damned!!!
Something was really good!
her hip score today, and she had A!!!!!
Congratulations to Seven, Diana
and Andre in Netherland. Photo Bild Holland.
Thursday 18 September 2008
Rune start his new work today!
And I was so much better that I can go up in the
morning but I have to take everything VERY slow.
They called and tell us that our car will cost
18.000:- to repair..so we had to decide not to repair it now..it
HAVE TO wait..
When Rune came home from work we went to Mariestad
and brought the car home again!
Wednesday 17 September 2008
Every time tonight when I have tried to walk up
from the bed...the whole room and world was upside down...Oh my god
not again..I do not have the time to be sick just now (or never).
I was lying in the bed all day.......and I had
sooooooo much to do!!!! Typical!
In the afternoon I can go to the toilet without
falling against all walls and in evening I can go downstairs.
I had four bitches as company
in my bed all day.....when I am tired, they are tired too.
Rune got a phone from the company where he have
been yesterday and they want him to start tomorrow!!!!
Thank god that I am better!
Tuesday 16 September 2008
Today Rune will go for a
interview for a new work.
Daddy the Prince (who think he
is a king) found a pillow to rest on!
Suddenly the "old lady in the
house" came and occupied it...he was said and didn't even dare too
look at the pillow *S*!
After a while they shared
it...she is very fond of Daddy but just want to show that she is the
"Queen" of the house *S*! He was sooooo grateful and lay very still
for a looong time!
In the evening Roy and Rune drive our car to the
Garage. Tomorrow they should take care of our broken car...
Monday 15 September 2008

now, they haven't meet for some months!
But Bosson told him at once...that he
still was very
small..and Rolex understand immediately that in this house he was
just a little boy, and will always be *S*!
Daddy was sooooo happy and laugh a lot when Rolex
was lying on his back on all pears that have been falling on the
ground while we have been gone.
Finally Daddy took him time to stop and shit...and
then Bell followed him...like follow the leader (följa John)!

rosette she first put on his head....you can see that he then was a
little bit ashamed *S*

him and the red crown and an excellent medallion around his neck he
look and act like the king he is (he think so) *S*!

This is what we saw when we woke
up and look out of the caravan window.
Charlotte is always "On the run", here talking in
the phone and walking a horse *S*!
We made all necessary things before we took all
seven dogs to Charlottes clinic for anti worm treatment.
She got a perfect place now, with
the closest house as her veterinarian practice and a stable close
behind, just 50 meters from her own house and with lot of land
around, finally they have bought more space for their horses. A
beautiful place with horses, sheep and dogs!
