New Years Eve
We were home and made turkey for dinner that we
eat together with Jonnie and Roy in the evening.
These days we try to relax and just stay home and
look at TV together with our dogs, and we all enjoy it.
Brother and sister waiting for a new exciting
Tuesday 30 December 2008
Rune was working today, but the office closed two
hours earlier than normal days.
Disa was mated for the second time late last
night....sooo easy - she is a tramp *S*!
I have cancelled my hairdresser today I was not
feeling good enough to go there.
Roy was here in the evening with chinese food...I
eat something that every time one of us take this food we wonder
what it is in it ???? If someone know what it is please send us a
mail and tell me.....we can't eat it but our dogs can *S*.
Disa and Jill
What is this......it is always in Chop suey?????
Her comes the food and cakeman......hurray!!!
Four noses waiting....
Monday 29 December 2008
Rune is free from work today.
Daddy found someone IN THE MIRROR, but he did not know who it was
Sunday 28 December 2008
I got an sms 5 minutes to eight but I was to
tired to look who it came from......then my mobile phone was ringing
instead and I answered.
It was Jonnie and he said that he was close to
Älmhult where Lotta is living....NOW???????? I was shouting, so Rune
woke up!! I thought he was joking with me.........but no. Lotta is
sleeping I told him, so please stop and rest a little until I have
talked to her.....
About nine o'clock he was there and get Disa into
the car and start their trip back home again. I told him that he and
his friend Zeb have to stop and eat and rest on their way back
home...they have been looking late at TV last night and decide that
it is toooooo hard to get out of the bed after just some hours sleep
so it was better to drive directly......he is a nightbird just like
At 12.15 they were here with Disa that was soooo
happy to meet our other dogs, and I am very proud of our bitches
living here at home that let other bitches that they haven't met for
some years or never just to move in here and be one of them and
share our bed with them or the closest place to my knee without any
abjection......as they did with Muzica last month...they are
In the afternoon Disa had a meeting with Bosson, hopefully there
will be puppies born in the end of February in Norway at Kennel
Lovinda. Disa is going to Norway already next week with Anne Karin
Daddy waiting for Disa ..... stupid dog he think
every girl is coming to him now *s*.
Bosson and Daddy love to play together.
Saturday 27 December 2008
We took a looooong morning, and we need it,
I asked Jonnie if he can go to Småland to Lotta
and bring Disa here tomorrow...I know that he love to drive around,
lucky me! Of course I can, he said at once...thank god.
We were looking for TV and stayed inside all day
Lotta checked Disa during the day (I don't want
her here if there is many weeks before she start her season, but I
won't miss it this time again) No blood said Lotta, but in the
evening Disa was standing in front of Love and act like a
tramp.....so I called Jonnie and we arrange that he will go there
Jimme have some cups in his home that he have got from truck
shows...but this big one is what he want. He was training on a
winning pose with one of our big cups already now, the season for
his shows will start in summer *S*!
Friday 26 December 2008
I got a sms from Lotta that Disa (Jilloc's
Picture of Paradise) was standing and waiting to be
mated???????? She was not in season yet...or? After some talking
with Lotta we decide to bring her home in some days anyway so it
will not be over this time when we are going for mating as last
summer. But Love (Sperm or Jilloc's Spermbank) was not interested in
her at all.......but we don't trust that girl with her seasons so we
will arrange a trip down there to bring her home..soon anyway and
check her up.
Rune was driving away from home to go to a show
for our Kennel club today. He went away at 6 o'clock..poor man and
was home at 8 in the evening..I have been very lacy today and
looking for TV most of the time.
Thursday 25 December 2008
I have been awake half night with pain in my
stomach, and the morning was even more painful..... Yesterday I eat
"Ris a la Malta" with cream...I love it but my stomach don't!
Nathalie, Jimmie, Eddie and my mother came at two
o'clock and after eating a little together with them I was a little
bit better....we eat dinner some hours later and at 8 o'clock they
drive back to Gothenburg again.
We took lot of photos during the day, here are
some of them.
Eddie was still sleeping when he came into, and
he was dressed in his nice suit from our dear friend Diana in
Eddie couldn't stop looking at Santa.....we are
all waiting for next Christmas when he is 14 months...what will he
say about Santa then?
Sooooooo much to look at for Eddie..for ex the
beautiful flower from Rebecca and Monika.
Roy was most interested in Jimmies book with
trucks, and he got his own calendar with photos of Jimmies cars and
Of course I have bought a baby book with
Dalmatians on for Eddie and a "Family Angel" for Nathalie and
Eddie borrowed Gloria and Daddy's Christmas
presents that they have got from their sister Neela in Finland.
Eddie was taking a nap while we were eating
Nathalie have ordered for Jimmie as a present a
book with all his trucks in...Jonnie was interested in that book
Jonnie have never hold Eddie before so I thought
it was time for that now....
It was a special feeling to hold him......Jonnie
told me in the evening....and he was so proud of him self that he
did it...and he didn't shit, he said when he gave Eddie back to me
Poor boy...we took so many photos today and he
got the flash in his eyes all the time......
Jimmie was "The lucky one" to help my mothered
with her crossword *S*!
Muzica was so interested..and she practice a
little on Eddie to take care of her coming puppies. Eddie love to
eat my finger up...and laugh!!!
Do You think that the flowers I sent have reach
the right address yet!?! Nooooooooooooooo!
Wednesday 24 December 2008
I woke up with a flue and it took a long time before I have take a
shower today. When I came down Rune came back from the store and he
have bought some "last minutes presents" for Jonnie and me.
Rune and I looked at TV for some nice "Christmas
movies" for some hours and I was happy that we will be only five
persons for dinner tonight. Jonnie and Roy, Anita and Rune and me.
Don't take photos of us!!!!
Exciting gifts in special wraps
with fun content!
Jonnie was happy for his things for his garage.
Finally some degrees cold and a little bit white
outside in the night.
Last January I start to get problems with my
stomach.....after many tests and after lot of visit at the hospital
we got the result that I probably was allergic of lactose in large
quantity. I felt tonight the same symptom as a year ago, damned. I
haven't been careful at all last months just because I haven't had
any problems for al long time....
Tuesday 23 December 2008
We have got soooooooo many beautiful Christmas cards and we will try
to make ours during the Christmas.
Jenny, Roy and I are going out shopping. And in the evening Hanna
and Jens will come here too.
More about that later.
It was already dark before we were back in Götene..
Today we have bought lot of food and fruit and the last
presents. It was knocking on the door as soon as we came in the
house, it was more flowers from the flower shop *S* and such a
beautiful bouquet from our dear friend Louice, thank You very much!!!
Photos can't show those fantastic flowers that we got last
they are much more to see in real.
Hanna and Jens came with gifts for Jonnie because that he have
got his driving licence, and he got a kiss too.
Rune was home early from his work and told us that "Now it is
Christmas" and my diet is over for now *S*...Both Kassie and Decibel
was here today. They have been together with Rolex and Bosson while
we have been out shopping.
Everything was ready without a Christmas three...we haven't had the
time to buy one but Jenny fixed one for me in the evening, thank
We put it on a table in the kitchen, and it looked a little bit more
Christmas at once.
At twelve o'clock Rune remember that he have to have
high lights in his hair and Jens want the same while he was eating *S*!
I love those winter bouquets...soo beautiful now....
Hanna have made presents for all our dogs with
their own name
And look what I got from Hanna....A "GLITTER AND GLAMOUR" bag
decorated in the flower store with fresh roses...Oooooooooooooo so
fantastic and very ME *S*!!!!! I put it in my white bathroom and in
our creamy bedroom...and I carry it around so I can enjoy it all
Jenny get her presents before she went home in the middle of the
night! And we get ours.....Rune get wine and marzipan so her was
more than happy....And I got an "Guardian Christmas Angel" from the
Collection that we love to give each other. Jenny got an "Angel
carrying a little lamb", every angel mean something and they are so
special and beautiful and given by love from one to another. I got
one from Jennie and Ellie too with a blue bird in his hand...lovely!!!!
Tonight we put the light on in our threes...it is only some days now
that we have them on because our electricity bills are huuuuuge!
Monday 22 December 2008
Yesterday the flower store called and told me that there will come
more flowers tomorrow!!! Hurray..
I was waiting for their car when the postman came instead with a
heavy package.....I was curious...but it was only things for the
dog show two days after Christmas in Tibro where Rune have to be all
day long to help with the arrangement...this year we haven't enter
any dogs so I will probably stay at home in the bed *S* instead of
be there all day just looking...Carola will go there with Perfect
and Hannie and Per Ove told us that he have entered some dogs.
Maybe I will go there for some hours just to look, but I do not
want to be away from our dogs all day long so the I take a own car
and go there in the middle of the day.
The flower man came with beautiful flowers from Vinta, Muppe and
Mocca and Hildegun, thank You sooooooo much!!!!
I have got so much fantastic bouquets with flowers last weeks and You
that have ordered this can be very happy that both flower shops here
in Götene do such outstanding arrangements (never forget the flowers
for Eddie when he was born..terrible).....
Jimmie have been out shopping for Eddie today and of course he
bought him a jacket exactly the same as he have by him self *S*!
And this gorgeous little boy is now sooooooo big. Poor Nathalie
that have to feed him all the time *S*!!!
Daddy carry everything around in the house...he found a large pillow
but he was not fast enough to lay down so Devlina took most of
My intention was to have a white and silver kitchen this year....but
I haven't had the time yet. Here is the beautiful candelabras from
Ola, Anna and Clara and Per Ove....they look very nice here. I love
Today I have ordered flowers by Internet again...we will se if they
come the right day this time or if they come at all *S*!!!
Sunday 21 December 2008
It is very important for Rune to make some
specialties for Christmas
(I never do, because then I eat even more than normal), so today he
made some strange cakes and his (and Jonnies) favourites "medisterkakor"
(a kind of meatballs)..........blä!!!!
And he did "havreflarn" and they are already gone *S*!
We had to eat the dark ones up...and suddenly all was gone!!!!!
Strange *S*! Then he made pizza for evening snack.
We looked at some Christmas movies in the evening, but I fall asleep
in front of the TV as usual...and woke up some hours later and was
up all nights putting the last gifts into boxes.
Saturday 20 December 2008
We have to go up early..after just some hours sleep (again)!!!
Many things to be ready with before we are invited to Anita in the
Muzica and Jill and Devlina are waiting for
When we came to Anita's place Rune was already
tired after starting with his big Christmas baking at home, but he
woke up when we got lovely and tasty food.
When we came home in the evening we put up snow
curtains.........and our dogs have made their own snow in the dog
room, clever dogs!
Jill heard the rat again.........
And the other girls found a big one on the
Poor rat...five girls try to eat it up......
Ooooooooo it was Rune...they try to eat HIM up
Friday 19 December 2008
Up very early to go to Gothenburg to meet the undertakers to
decide everything about my Aunts funeral in the middle of January. I
meet my mother there in the middle of the day but first I drive to a
large shopping centre. I was only there for a short time because
there were sooo many people shopping and I hate that...then I just
want to go home and in to our small Götene where You can walk into a
store and tell them what You are looking for and they find it for
You and You walk out from the store with a nice package in Your
hand. And it is not that much more expensive than You believe from
the beginning and You save a lot of money and time not to drive for
hours to come to the big city. and time is money......
Next week Jonnie and Roy and I are going to shop the last
presents in Trollhättan...and I will start to look for a suit to
Jonnie in good time before the funeral and later when we are going
to go to Eddies christening. I have a hope that he will were a suit
this time *S*...but You never know.
I was back home at six o'clock in the afternoon and was very
tired...I hate to drive in the dark.....We eat dinner and I went in
to the livingroom to look at a move....and woke up two hours later
to try to find a key for my car that Roy need to borrow. Then I fall
asleep again and woke up 5 minutes past midnight because Rune was
snoring so much.....after a while he was awake too and now we have
been doing things that we supposed to do earlier this evening
Now it is 5 o'clock in the morning and Rune is looking at
Jonnie was here just now and eat bread and shrimps....I am sitting
at the computer but we have to go to bed soooooon. tomorrow Rune
will start to bake all things that HE HAVE TO HAVE *S* for
Christmas...no diet now!
Eddie reading paper and look at TV in the same time.
Food for Jonnie in the night (and us)!
Our best mouse guard, Jill. She can't relax when she
know where they are *S*!
Our four other girls do not bother at all.....
I hope to have the time to go to buy a sofa for our
dogs soon, I hate to have things on the floor because you have to
move it away every time you clean the floors....and in a dog home you
have to do it more than once a day.
Thursday 18 December 2008
Look what a beautiful card I got from Latvia, I would like to use
my computer and do things like this too, but I am not clever enough
and I have nooooooooo patience at all...
Made by Benfatto.
Time at the healthcentre with nurse today and after new tests she told my that
my condition is very good, sorry that I can't feel it when I'm
running in the show ring...most because of my feet of course. At a
show some months ago a ring stewardess told me when I came limping and
puffing and blowing in the ring that I should get in a better shape
for dog shows *S* yes of course but I can't change my legs that easy!
I am so pissed of my problems to run like before. The best thing I
know is to show three or four dogs by my self.....instead of now
when I in the best case, can show one or two....if I have a good day.
Today the cake man came home from his last journey....thank god
without a cake this time but with shrimps, salmon pâté and a
smörgåstårta...not the best diet but better than cake.
I know some girls that are really happy that he is back home again,
now they get extra good food to eat almost every day!
No snow here now, I want it to come back!!!!
It is soon Christmas and it looks like spring.
Wednesday 17 December 2008
We keep the candle burning for all people that are old and sick and
have to live away from their homes. As Diana's grandfather in
Holland, and she is doing the same thing as I always did to my
father...bring puppies and dogs there for visit. All people in the
home was so happy just to have a soft licking puppy in their knee,
or a little child. Their eyes start to shine immediately......
Ellie about 9 months old with my father.
Diana's grandpa with some of their Dalmatian puppies.
Here comes a photo of my beloved grandma with our cat
Gangster.....she was almost 95 year old on this picture.
A fantastic grandma, the Best!
There were two packages coming for me today so I have to go to the
post office to get them. First a blue box with this nice package
inside.....Ohhhhh soooooo exciting!!
And inside a exclusive cake knife for all our cakes *S*..and it look
just like a dog..Thank You Alexandra o Toka and Hanna o Dumle for this very nice
I will bring cake next time we will meet!!!
Then another large package...it was from Norway and
Nyhammers..inside it was Christmas gifts for Jenny, Hanna, Rune and
Me. You are great. see You in Gothenburg, then we will
Jonnie was to the Post to get his Original Driving Licence....he was
PROUD, and so was I.
I really hope he will drive carefully so he can keep it forever.
Tonight I have been looking at TV and writing in my diary, while Rune
have been trimming four dogs.
He have been out with his work today to eat
Christmas food for
lunch...and he came home with a big box with delicatessens for
Christmas..soo good to get it already now because there are lot of
things that I do not need to buy now.
A photo from Saturday when we eat "Runes
already wait for Christmas when he will make more of it. And Anita have made
a speciality from England with jelly, cream and candy,
very sweet and nice! Devlina and Muzica resting.
Muzica in her garden playing with a can of beer....she have gain some more
weight now (Who will not do that in our home?) *S*! We are planning
to make an ultrasound with her last days in December just to know if
we should enter her to any shows or not.....Tonight she will be
sleeping in our bed again because her season is definitely over now.
Tuesday 16 December 2008
Last night I was looking at TV toooo long, so I
was planning for a long morning instead. But at 7 o'clock some
workers came to fix something with the electricity, and some
of our dogs was barking and wake me up.
I'd just fall asleep again about 8 o'clock and
woke up 20 minutes later when my mother called and to tell me that
my beloved Aunt have passed away while she was sleeping now this
morning. Thank God that our wishes have come true, now she can rest
in peace with her dog forever.......
I have been with my Aunt since I was newborn. She
had no kids by her own and have always treat and care for me as her
own daughter, and we have always lived close to each other until I
got my own family.
All my memories include my Aunt, she was the
best, and I do not think that anyone in the whole world have
anything negative to say about her. My oldest children have always
stayed with her during their holidays especially Jennie and even
I have been to many holidays with her and her
husband...in Norway and in Denmark....we were going there by train
my Aunt and I and her husband go there by motorcycle.... To Germany
in their very small car many many years ago when I was a
teenager...and we travelled out of the Nordic countries for the first
time...we were tenting *S* and it was so less space so the tent was
outside the back window so we couldn't see out there.
So many wonderful memories that I will keep in my
heart for ever.
This is at her 87th Birthday last year.
Of course she should have a bag with her
favourite breed. Outside her birth home with Rune and inside the old
My mother and my Aunt have been eating breakfast
here in the 1020´s, and every morning for many years before they
went to school.
At Jonnies Birthday last year.
Autumn 2007 in our home together with Jill.
Monday 15 December 2008
Jonnies "new" car is already broken, so he came
and put it in the garage and took my Volvo instead....and our Opel
that we use for dog shows and Rune drives to work...really need a
fix up now. We have still not repaired it because it will cost toooo
much. But we haven't had the time to go and look for a new...(newer)
car. Rune is working all the time and we haven't been home any
weekends, and Roy is far away at work...so he can't help just now.
My mother went back to Gothenburg in the middle
of the day.
I was working on the computer for some hours and
many friends called just to talk and ask how our weekend have been,
and more flowers came!!! Thank You......our home start to look like
a flower shop now...beautiful!!!!
This is fantastic we have now been celebrating in
We got greetings and Best Wishes from Max and
Jilloc's Trumph-Card, so good to see her.
Thank You for this photo Jenny and Andreas.
And look what I found in a map.....Rune some
years ago with a fantastic cake we got from a puppy buyer (with
We saved it in the freezer for awhile and eat it
together with our Dalmatian friends at a special moment.
Today my Aunt been much weaker than before so she
got her own room at the retirement home, my mother and Jennie were
there in the evening. She was sleeping like a child with her toy dog
on her arm...it have been her best friend for a long time now and
the only one that she have been talking to the last weeks. Jennie
and I talked when she have been there visiting her and both of us wish that she will pass away in her
sleep for her own good.
Sunday 14 December 2008
We have put our alarm on 10 this morning because
we will have time to eat breakfast together with Helena before she
leave for Stockholm.
I was looking in the pink guestroom, but the bed
were already made and when I came down to the kitchen she was
sitting there kissing Devlina and Bell *S*!
Muzica would like to help Helena with her morning
cleaning...... And we eat smörgåstårta for breakfast......Rolex want
to cuddle too....
Devlina, Rolex and Gloria was also tired today.
We were lazy in the sofa in front of the TV most of the afternoon
Someone eat toooo much yesterday and broke a
chair.....it was not Rune this time *S*!
Saturday 13 December 2008
and our Winner party Tonight!
The phone wake us up....more flowers on the way
Exactly at three o'clock our first guest came trough the door, it
was Helena from Stockholm, we were so happy that she could come to us this
weekend even if the weather was not the best today. Muzica loved her
immediately. Then Eva came from Gothenburg....
Ola and Anna (behind Ola *S*), Per-Owe and Clara.
Always funny with visitors for our dogs, and
there have been an hectic week and many new people to know.
Something to eat of course.
Our "baker" have done exactly what I have asked
for (And Mark, it tasted very good)!
Nice presents from my friends and colleges.
Jill was curious what I got in the package.
unfortunately many of our friends was sick today
(we really miss You) but it is often so this time of the year !
More beautiful bouquets.
My mother was looking for all photos from
Stockholm last weekend. Jenny helped her with the computer. We say
that we will give her a computer as a Christmas present, but then
she need someone to stay with her and help her to put it on every
day she said *S*. I think that she will learn that after a
while.....she is so damned that she couldn't read in my diary more
than when she is visiting us or Jennie or Jimmie..
I think it would be perfect for her to get photos
many times a week from us all instead.
I bought My first computer in 1999 together with
my first digital camera and used only for my photos until I entered
my self to a course so I could use it like normal people *S*. Until
then I HAVE TO pull the plug every time I was in Jimmies room to
close the computer that he had for his computer games, and he got
lot of trouble every time I did it that way!
More guests Anita, Volker and Jonny.
Rebecca, Santa and Monika came late.
And Rebecca was hungry, she just came from her work.
There were even some doing speeches.....and Anita
made nice drinks to everyone (almost).
Anita found lot of things to mix in our bar.
Monica loved the strawberry drink!!!
Then we all looked at the movie from the finals
in Stockholm...and Jonny loved to see him self because in the final
ring he couldn't see anything because he had a spotlight in his face
all the time and couldn't even see the flowers and things he
got..(His kennel was Nr 5 Top Breeder this year).
Finally Runes frozen cheesecake, Jenny have been
waiting for it since last December.
Jonny asked if Jill was a good example of our
breed ...Yes, and she was hungry!!!! (They always are)!
We took the rosette made of marzipan from the
cake to save it...and keep it...Jenny hide it high up under the
roof.....it is not easy to hide it good enough from the marzipan
monster in our house!!!???!!! Yes, RUNE.....he love it and even if
the marzipan that I've picked off from cakes are some years old, and
he is desperate for something sweet, he can eat it if he find it
even if it is full of dust and Dalmatian hair *S*!
At 5 o'clock in the morning our dogs start to
play again...it was only Rune and me and Jenny and.......YES you see
it correct..HELENA that still was up and eat cheesecake again *S*!
She can't stop partying when she come her to our house..normally she
can't hold her eyes open at 10 o'clock in the evening..she couldn't
understand how she could stay awake.....
Friday 12 December 2008
Snow, snow and more snow, so beautiful outside.
This is the weather that I want for Christmas!
The view from my bathroom window.
Champagne from the show in Belgium, from friends
in Russia and from Kerstin and Göran in Stockholm, and a Glitter and
Glamour Vodka from Niina...hurray. I love the outfit of the bottle
and Rune love the content of the bottle *S* that is a good deal!
Flowers and trees from puppy buyers...
More beautiful flowers came from my friends in
Norway, soooo gorgeous! Silver on the flowers looks like raindrops.
Jonnies latest car.
The roses I got at Monday are beautiful now.
Eddie is such a sweet child, he love to bath and
sleep (so far *S*). He is soon at 6 kg now, good boy!
Photos from Nathalie.
Thursday 11 December 2008
Lot of snow during the night and Jonnie and I had
a hard time to wake up this morning. He was almost awake when I came
there to pick him up. He had pain in his stomach, I believe that he
haven't been sleeping more than just some hours because he have been
working with one of his cars in the garage until early morning.
No good day for the test today, but we have to
give it a try.....it is so hard to get time for the test..so long
time to wait to book.
I was in the flower shop while he was doing the
test at Vägverkets office. It will take 50 minutes then the time is
I was sitting reading and he was coming out from
the office, down the stairs and he saw my car. I thought that I had
to look for his face expression but I had no time to think because
he lift both his arms in the air and smile with his whole face..is
he joking I think....but he did it again and run towards me in the
car and shout I get it ...I get it!!!!!
What a victory for him, he is the best driver,
but hate to read and do tests..but now it is over!!!!
Now he got a new problem, his car was not ready
for the road yet...and he want to drive today!!! His showcar is too
nice to take out on winter roads...so he start immediately to look
for another one. Puh......there is always something.....
Oh my sweet little baby boy
*S*......finally, I was sooooo happy for him (and for Rune
*S*)....he took the phone and called Rune immediately, he know that
he should be sooooo happy, then he continue to call all his friends
and send sms to his brother and Jenny and I called some other that
was hoping for him today!
Damned he said...now I have to drive Jenny home
on Saturday *S*..he have promised to do that IF he get the licence
this time. And he did...I think that he would like to do that so
much that his brain where working overtime to make it*S*!
We drive home and HE took my car and together
with a friend of him, they drove 150 km to look for another
Volvo...again...I think he have 7 of them now and 4 that he have
squeezed and o made a pile of outside the garage..he is crazy, but
and very nice!
And every time he say that we have promise him
because he do not smoke and drink as many other young people
today..and then he know that he get one more car without any
nag.....ha ha ha!
Some hours later they were home with his new
Volvo and he was out all night long driving in the snowy weather.
There were more flowers coming to our
house......Ooooooooo I LOVE THIS!!!!!!
Wednesday 10 December 2008
This was in another paper today.
Jonnie and I drive to Mariestad to try for the
theory for Jonnies driving licence. But they say that he haven't
booked any time for that there today???? So we have to go home
again...I checked our papers when we came home and we had a time
there but it have been cancelled for some reason, damned!!!
Back home to eat breakfast/lunch and start to
call for a new time for the test.
Lucky us that got a new time tomorrow in
Lidköping 10.45, no rest for me tomorrow morning either!
Our little friend was lying dead in the
livingroom when I came home, and our dogs thought it was their
dinner for today. Look at Bell, she is licking her mouth *S*!!! It
was sad not to have this little sweetheart as company anymore
(that was what I thought..there is more of them..many more, but they
are not as social as this one was).
Rune and Jonnie at the school again, training for
the theory. I do not know which one of them that would be most happy
when this is over *S*!!
Looking at TV in the evening and fall
asleep in front of the TV, we woke up at five o'clock in the morning
and walk up to the bedroom...
Tuesday 9 December 2008
One Newspaper today.
We were expecting the people from the newspaper at 11 o'clock and
just when I was coming out from the shower they called from TV4 and
ask if they can come to make an interview for the local TV news. It will be shown this evening.
I called Jenny and ask her to come immediately and
to buy something for
the coffee on her way here.....we did not have the time to go to the
store...she was laughing. SHE WAS THE ONE that have given the tip to
TV about our success in the dog world.....Oooooo is it Your fault I
said then You have to come NOW....
I told the reporter that they were welcome at 12...oh my god..this
is funny of course but this is nothing that I could live with every
day...You have to have it cleaned all over, You never know where they
are going to take photos or film. I have only one place in the
kitchen where I put things that is in way, under a shelf......(and
of course that was the first thing I saw at TV news in the evening
*S* damned!!!) I thought that they will do the recording in the livingroom
but the light was so much better in the kitchen so they decide to go
for it there...
At 11 we start the first interview and a quarter past 12 we
start with the team from TV4...
One hour later it was calm in the house again (as calm as it can be
*S*). Rune have gone to his work and Jenny and I was driving in to
Götene to buy newspapers to read the first interview they did with
me yesterday. We bought 6 newspapers *S*........... And we have to
buy something extra tasty for lunch/breakfast.
At six o'clock we drive to Hanna and Jens to look at the evening
news at TV and to ask Jens for help to record it.. they have bought a
BIG CAKE to celebrate...puhhhhhhh lot of cakes these days *S*!!!
Jenny have to rest with the dogs for a little
while first *S*.
Beautiful and lovley cake with white chocolat
I hate to see myself on TV and to hear my own
Hjärtat thought that it was soo funny that we
When we came home there were 20 new mails from
friends from all over, college and judges and even people with other breeds that
I do not know.
All for Your Congratulations!
Monday 8 December 2008
My plans to have a calm morning did not go as
planned ..both phones start to call at nine and continued to do so
all the day....newspapers made an interview with me on the phone I
was to tired today and had fever so I couldn't let them come her.
Today I get the feeling that I should have had
yesterday before the final...I was shaky and high speed and can't
calm down *S*!
Most of the time I was answering mails and
phone calls and in the evening suddenly Hanna and Jens came with
beautiful flowers and just after they arrived there came a flower
delivery at the door. More beautiful flowers from my friends and
We showed the movie from yesterday and Hanna wish
that she had been there with us.
Jill , Devlina and Muzica so happy for visitors.
Coffee and cake of course.
Hanna smelled the flowers. Rune made dinner for
More flowers from friends.
It was hard to calm down in the late evening I
think about yesterday again and again and I realised now how
fantastic this was.
Muzica and Jill are so relaxed about everything.
Lot of gasoline checks, hurray!
Tomorrow there will come another newspaper for an
interview so I have to do lot of things before that so no long
morning tomorrow either.
Rune will stay home for some hours and go to his
work at lunch.
Sunday 7 December 2008
Today Rune was going to do his last training as a judge
Springer Spaniel. Jenny and I was thinking about staying in the bed
this morning at the hotel and then later on go to the Expo, but we
decided to follow Rune this morning even if it was too early.
Back into the car with everything again. We love to be back to Infra
Kari Granås Hansen was the judge for Springer Spaniel. Arne Foss and Rune
Jenny was so
nervous and excited that she can't stand still or sit down for more
than 30 seconds *S*...I was soooo calm all day that I think it was
something wrong with me...normally You should have had butterflies
in Your stomach an important day like this. Soo many asked me all the
time are You nervous.....are You nervous.....but I wasn't. Just
happy, every placement now is a huuuuuge win for us!
was soooooo happy for our win yesterday that I can't wish for
more....now I have to be in top 3 and that is better than I have
expected. I have studied all beautiful groups soo many years now and
the competition is really hard to beat so I am more than happy to
come this far with my spotted darlings!
During the day we were walking around and look for other breeders
groups, and some of the breeders that have a chance to climb at
the list did not even win in the breed ring. Jenny can't stop smiling
and jumping then, it is not many times in my life that I have seen
someone be that happy.....she is soo sweet and a my biggest fan *S*!
When it was time for the competition of the
Breeding groups for
Saturday there were only 23 groups today and Rune said it was
impossible for someone to beat us now. We HAVE TO be Nr 1 or 2 then.
Then Helena and Jenny smiled even more than before *S*! And Jenny
jumped around for 5 minutes laughing and smiling and almost crying,
poor girl..this was almost too much for her *S*! All we other were
happy just to look at her!!!
Jenny was pale in her face and have pain in her
stomach during the whole day, but when they called me up as WINNER
of Breeder Of The Year 2008, everything fell of her shoulder and she
felt so good again. Poor her we were really afraid for her health
for a while.
Waiting outside for the result. They have called
up five kennels and when they call for the second place...Then I was
standing there alone waiting for the spotlight when I was running in
with Gloria to the first place. (Rune made a movie of all this and
when they call for nr 2 and we know that I was Nr 1 Jenny
shout...don't look at me...don't look at me...and she was jumping
away with both feet so I couldn't see that she was crying because I
have told her not to cry so I can see it...then I will start too
Johan (Our favourite
photographer) took this lovely photo from the ceremony, and it was
on SKK:s Homepage after some hours.
It looks like Gloria thought that she had won
something.....and she had together with all our dogs and my puppy
Thank You all fantastic puppy
buyers that helped me to get this prize.
We are all the Winners!
And of course a big kiss to my
"One and only" Rune that is the biggest reason that all this was
He is the one that drive all nights long to come to a show and go
back home again, and he is the one that carry everything in and out
to the shows, and he is the one that show most of my dogs because of
my bad feet, and he is the one that do everything in early mornings
when we are going to shows (while I am in the shower and making my
hair) and he is the one that is always there when I have forget
something that I should have done.
If there were a BEST IN SHOW for kennel
boys, partners, friends, handlers and so on......
He is MY BEST IN SHOW!
And after him comes Åke!
Lot of greetings as soon as I came out from
the show ring...All our friend from Stockholm with a fantastic
bouquet of beautiful flowers, and ....
Åke was the first of them all,
thank You for everything!!
Fantastic !!! Out of Top five
Best Breeders we were THREE from Skaraborgs Kennel club!
Johnny A with his kennel
Lundecocks was Nr 5, and our friends Björn E and Johnny N with
kennel Diplomatics was Nr 3, and Jilloc's Nr 1.
After all laughs we all have to
cry a little *S*!
Helena, Jenny, Me, Voijkan, Kattis, Helena T and Eva B.
We wish this day will last forever.
We could not stop to take photos...
Sooooo happy for gasoline checks from Pedigree,
our gas account is huuuuuge!
Just one more photo of today.
It was late before we had packed all things
together and started our journey back home. We were home before
Goodbye Stockholm for now, we will be back (as
In the middle of the night Daddy mated Muzica, we
are now hoping for puppies in the beginning of February 2009.
Guess if we were sleeping well tonight *S*, but
poor Rune had to go up some hours later for his work. I was planning
to stay in the bed for a loooong morning.
Saturday 6 December 2008
Stockholm Int show, Crufts
Judge Åke Cronander, Sweden
Most important this
afternoon is the Breeding groups.
My hardest concurrent's that
are placed close behind me are also in today's competition, so we will soon
know IF we are IN OR OUT for the final on Sunday.
I am NEVER nervous for this things it is JUST A
BONUS, but now I am *S*!
We drive away from home at 3.30 together with Eva and Jenny in
their car and Hanna drive her car one hour later... it was
important to have many cars IF something should happen with one of
ours...it is only one thing in our head today..to be there in time
so we can show our breeding group, MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL...
We tried some different combinations with dogs when we were in
Stockholm, loooong time before the judging started. We try to
think about everything and in the end we decide to go for a group
today that was by Nr 1-2-3-and 4 BEST bitch...but we didn't know
that then *S*.....some hours later when we were placed we found out
that these four bitches that we have chosen was the top four
today for this judge...PERFECT!
Now we have done as
much as we could before the final competition this afternoon in the
ring of honour......brrrrrrr nervous!!!
borrowed a handsome handler from Norway *S* just to give the group a
nice look, but of course it would have been better if we were all
in the same size as some other nice groups handlers (I am sooo
jealous of those with Saluki) they have same length, weight and clothes
and their dogs are soooo calm and are not naughty at all like ours too
happy Dalmatians that have a hard time to stand still in the groups.

and BOS Ch City kid's Dark Chocolate Danilo.
During the afternoon there were an examination for two new judges
for our breed, that is very good. And during the judging of
Dalmatians today there were one student and one aspirant in the ring,
looking and learning about our breed together with the judge Åke
Cronander. So many dogs was really tired in the afternoon because so
many people have been looking and examined them, but not Gloria,
she is always on top *S* thank god. First we took her to the
photograph for the Winner Photo and then she was in the finals for
group 6 and then in the final with the Breeding group.
We were at the photographer to take Winner photos, and with this win
Gloria is now Qualifyed for CRUFTS 2009!
All photos from Mässan was in this bad quality..it looks like my
mobile camera but it isn't!!!
Helena and Jenny resting before the final.
Björn Erling and Rune waiting.
Long time to wait, the Breeding groups were in the end of the day,
and of course we change clothes to be more similar *S*!
Gloria was Big 5.

There were 28 groups from the beginning, and later
were only five Groups left. Great Dane, Saluki, Newfounland,
Miniature Schnauzer and Dalmatians.
Nr 5 was Newfoundland
Nr 3 was Great Dane
Nr 3 was Miniature Schnauzer
And as many times before this year it was between
Nr 2 was Saluki, and I did not
them say that because the fanfare was soooo loud..but I saw Jenny
start jumping and Rune and Björn Erling was smiling with
their whole faces and I ask B-E....who won...was it us??????

Always chaos when they shall take photos *S*.
Then we have to do a "Honour round"!

Photos from today taken by Rune, Eva, Jenny, Niina , Pia, Teemu and
All things back to the car, and try to get space for it again *S*.
Thank god that our finish friends and Helena helped us to the car.
And then to the hotel and out with all things from the car and up to
the hotel room. We stayed at Infra City one of the most beautiful and
best hotels we know, with the fantastic winter garden in the
lobby/restaurant. And You are always welcome with Your dogs without
extra costs there.
Christmas flowers in the reception.
We were really tired after a long day and a VERY
early morning. Our
intention was to eat something and to watch the final of "Stars On Ice".
Rune and Jenny
went out to buy food and I fall asleep on the bed. Up and eat a
little and start to look at TV...then I woke up in the middle of the
night..I haven't seen anything of the program that I have been
waiting for, for such a long time *S*..
I was looking
around and couldn't find Rune. I thought he was at the toilet, but
after 15 minutes I went up looking there...no Rune there.....strange....Jenny
was sleeping so I couldn't ask her. Maybe he was out with some of
our dogs and I start to count them...strange...all of them was there
sleeping! I was too tired to think more about it and went back to my
About one hour later the door opened and I heard
Rune start to talk to Jenny....Even if he was tired too he had gone down to the lobby and ask for a computer...He was there for
some hours and he have been counting all points for the
breeding groups through the whole year for all the groups in
the top eight, again and again
*S*.....And he was rather sure that we now was in the lead before
tomorrow......Jenny was excited and jump up, I heard them talk and
talk for a long time, but as I said to them before...don't think
about it until the SKK computer have count it all tomorrow
afternoon...Everything CAN happen in the last minutes..we just have
to wait and see. And then I fall asleep again...but they were up
most of the night counting again and again and try to convince each
other that we CAN win......
I do not think it
is possible so I sleep instead!
But I love them for their spirit, without them I
have been nothing!
Success keeps You glowing.
But, only Friends keep You going..
Friday 5 December 2008
It was raining, snowing and during the day there
were just above freezing point but early morning it was cold
and probably tonight again, shit!!!
I was giving some dogs a bath and after
breakfast/lunch I start to check upon all clothes one more time,
there is always something I have forgot.
This weekend will not be that nice as we have
been planning for many weeks now. First of all we have to start from
home at 3 o'clock at the latest if the weather is ok....and then at
least Rune have to go to bed EARLY tonight, and every time we have
to go to bed early it is impossible to sleep.
We were so happy that Dalmatians didn't start
before 10 o'clock tomorrow, but now we have to be there at 7 anyway,
just to get parking close to the show...shit!
We will travel in normal clothes and have
suitcase with nicer clothes with us (as always) and tomorrow I have
6 different shoes with me because of my stupid feet.....You can
understand that there will be no space in our car.
And we will have different clothes with us
for the finals, IF we get there.....I really hope so. It is
important that we are dressed exactly the same....not for the judge
probably, but for me *S*it is as always the dogs they are looking
at, and it should be! But IF we have different colours and clothes
it disturbs the impression of our dogs...most other breeders have a
breed where all the dogs have the same colour...but our dogs are so
SPOTTED (thank god) and no one can be the same so WE have to be VERY
SIMILAR instead not to disturb the whole impression!!!
We will have 6 dogs up to Stockholm, two males
and a bitch in high season..this will be funny!!
Jenny and Ewa are going in their own car at the
same time and even Hanna, so IF one of us get problem with the car
we can help each other to get to Stockholm...I hope.... Anita and
Niina and Mette is already there and I am so JEALOUS of them!!!!
I have forgot to tell You that we have a long
time guest that is together with us most of the time.....it is a rat
that love to be with me in the livingroom in the late evenings and
it is really sweet. He/she runs in front of me and hide between the
Christmas presents in the hall. We have try to catch him for about
two months now but he is just playing with us..he eat up everything
during the nights and I have to clean after him/her every day. IF
this little friend didn't eat our things up he/she could have lived
here with us, but it start to be expensive with all nice things that
is destroyed now.
Rune scream tonight when he was coming out from the toilet and
almost step on the rat. And the same did I later in the
evening....ha ha ha ...but we are most afraid to step on "it". Thank
God that I am not scared for rats...this is not a mouse but a rat..I
will try to catch it on a photo but my dogs are always there before
Jill is home now so the rat have to watch
up...she love to play with them and scare them to death...so in the
morning there can be a wet dead mouse or rat on the kitchen floor.
I've a sad message today that Jilloc's Gremlin
Ghost is dead, thank You Tina for this beautiful photo:
Rolex is dancing for Muzica.
Gloria and Muzica looking for the rat.
Doglas a very special and nice dog.
Look what my favourite puppybuyers in Holland
(the only one.*S*S*) have been doing this week!!!
They have put spotlights in their dog yard so we
can use the whole area even in the night......we are
Lucky Seven to live there!
Thursday 4 December 2008
Only two hours sleep tonight, damned!!! I have to
go up early because Roy was here with Jonnie already at 7 o'clock
and he want breakfast.
Jonnie and I was on our way to Skövde to take
photos for his driving licence and try for the hard theory
there....He was soooo close 50 points today, and he need 52 to
....... shit!!! We have to start home 1,5 hour before the normal
time because the roads was very dangerous today.
We met a friend of Jonnie there and both Jonnie
and Ludde went back home with me.
some hours later I have an
appointment at my hairdresser in Lidköping, so I have to drive away
again. And I was so tired and felt almost sick today..pain in my
body, stomach and head. I need more sleep now..I can recognise this
feeling, it is just like when You have been up waiting for puppies
for some nights...You feel sick!
I have to eat lot of chewing gum when I was on my
way to Lidköping..it was really hard to keep awake. But when I was
ready there I took a quick shopping round instead of going home *S*.
After dinner Rune and I was sitting and discuss
how to do with the caravan tomorrow. He can't go home from work
early because of many things so it will be dark before we can start
from home.......he checked up the weather during coming weekend and
it sounds not that good. Then we start to look for hotel in
Stockholm until late in the night........I am soo pissed that we
can't take the caravan, because it is already packed with all our
things for this weekend. I can't imagine HOW THE HELL all those
things and clothes and Christmas presents and dresses (for Niina to
try) can get room in our car????????????????
Wednesday 3 December 2008
Eddie is 2 month old today!!!
Bosson got puppies in Russia today with Russian Ch
Puding Dog Chein of Gold
There is 4
males and 4 bitches.
We are really longing for puppies too now.
We will mate Muzica next week and hopefully get
a litter in the beginning of February.
Today I have been on the road almost the whole day. I drive to
Gothenburg this morning to meet Jennie and bring Jill home again for
Stockholm. And I will meet my mother too and bring her Christmas flowers for her home as always in the beginning of
December. We have
bought some bottles with liquors to her and some chocolate too.
All three of us went for breakfast/lunch and after a quick look in the
stores, we drove to my aunt that now is at a retirement hospital
home close to my mothers apartment.
She did not recognise me but was happy for her cake and
as I always are buying to her at Christmas.
I found a dog there she was owned by one of
It was lot of traffic and it was soo dark, I hate to drive then.....I
was home at 17.30 and sooooo tired. Both Rune and I fall asleep in
front of the TV for an hour and then lot of things to do again.
Poor Rune is still working with a laaaarge cage in our caravan to
protect everything from the dogs (the young ones) the only thing
with this new caravan is that it is tooooo nice to destroy! The
clock is 2.15 in the night.....poor! But tomorrow he will work many
extra hours again and we have to be ready for our trip at Friday
afternoon, so he have to do it in the night.
And I feel soooo exciting just now before this weekends show so I
can't sleep, but we really need it..last night Daddy sing some songs
during all night for Muzica *S* so we slept about 1,5 hour!!!
Tuesday 2 December 2008
I continue to make lot of Christmas presents and fill our caravan
with them. We will bring them with us to
Stockholm next weekend.
Now I start to be really
nervous, not for the judging..it is not the most important thing
this time, BUT we still have the possibility to be Top Breeder 2008,
all breeds in Sweden. It depends which placement we get in the
final ring at Saturday (if we come there)....and the final result is
ready after Sundays all breeding groups competition about 17 o'clock
in the afternoon, so we will stay in Stockholm until then. and Rune
is going to make his last training as a judge on Springers on sunday,
and I will sleep in the caravan.
We still can beat
nr 1, but there are some breeders behind us on the list that can
beat us too of course. Hopefully we can stay 1-5 in the end.
Time will tell!
If we win it all (it will not happened) there will be an reportage in
the Swedish Magazine Hundsport of Kennel Jilloc's and I am not so
fond of that, but Jenny (our biggest enthusiast and puppy buyer and
friend) she even have promise to be here for a week and clean the
house before they come here to take photos *S*, I told her she have
to do that, even if she hate to clean, because I am that crazy that
I would like to have every cm of the house perfect (as perfect as a very old house can be) if someone is coming. It is worth it as long
as we win she said....I am not sure that I believe her this time *S*!
It start to snow like hell this afternoon and normally I love it,
but we have to take our caravan for this show so I am really afraid
if there is winter road or not.
