October 4th 2010 Welcome Unique!

The long-awaited charmer is here - Unique has finally arrived! After a long and eventful journey he is here, and what a sweetheart he is! Good luck on your path together Unique, Suvi and Ari!

October 1st 2010 Miklos is sick

Miklos has been showing signs of pain and x-rays revealed a bad situation. He has a spinal disc problem in the neck. Now he faces several weeks of "sick leave" and we just wait and see if there will be a turn for better or for worse. I feel hopeless. :-(

September 24th 2010 The Mop goes to heart examinations again

The Mop is showing signs of heart problems again, so it was time to start over the examinations with her cardiologist. The diagnosis is not clear: it appears to be some kind of idiopathic bradycardia. The heart rate is very very slow when she is calm and resting. Now the medication is changed a little, two more substances are added to her diet and we continue monitoring the situation. The Mop even had a Holter device attached to her for a day to record her ecg for 24 hours. She had no problems with the device!

September 20th 2010 World Championships
and Finnish Cmhampionships :-D

Majka has been training the job of a Team Leader; first in the World Championships for SAR dog teams in Bergamo, Italy, August 19-22. Proud to say - we became the World Champions!! Team Finland was the winner in area search and got the highest total score of the whole competition, all sports included. :-D
Our team was also the only one to score full points in search. :-)
And I must say our team indeed was the best in the whole world - and I am not talking about points now - a million thanks to Harri, Nina and Virpi for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Team Leader practise continued two weeks later in the Finnish Championships for SAR dog teams as the captain of one the teams from Helsinki. This team got Bronze and the best Team Leader points. :-)

In both of these competitions the Team Leader is judged as gets points. The tasks for Team Leader include for example planning of the search tactics.

Pomppu, Kerttu, Luna & Diana formed the Borgakers breeder's group that was Best of Breed and Best in Show 4 breeder's group with quite extraordinary critic:

"Moderation - this is what characterises this group. All dogs are not exaggerated in any point. They are sound, well made and you believe that they are still able to perform work."

Our main reason for travelling to Sweden with Diesel was search-and-rescue dog camp "Rädda Påsken" in Nynäshamn, little south from Stockholm. Diesel showed great progress in his skills during the 4 intensive training days.
Here is a link to a video presenting Diesel's SAR training in Sweden.

Returning home we got some brilliant news: Diesel's Swedish girlfriend "Ice" is pregnant! The ultra sound examination revealed as many as 6-8 little Dice puppies on the way. :-D
