One more passed herding instinct test

Today I judged one Beardie that passed the herding instinct test. Congratulations Topikan De Ville! He passed with the grades 4;4;3;4, average 3.67. He had exceptional courage for a new-beginner to challenge the stubborn ewes that were staring at him and stomping there front feet.

Uunituoreet luonnetestitulokset!

Kesannon koirista Les Terribles eli Letti ja Viira tänään luonnetestattu Nokialla Katri Leikolan ja Kai Tarkan toimesta. Ne molemmat saivat varsin näköisensä tulokset, jotka lisäilin tuonne Kesannon koiriin ja kummankin oman nimen tekstin seasta löydät linkin tuloksiin.

Letin tie saamaan pentuja ei tyssänyt tähän ;-)

Some updates

Some updates in "youngsters' " health results…

Letti and Pitsi passed the herding instinct test on 14.7.2013!

Both Letti and Pitsi were tested and they now have a document they have herding instinct :-) Results can be found at "Kesannon koirat" and under their own pages (in Finnish, sorry).

All test results from that day can be found at "Herding with Beardies in Finland".

Bataatti-punajuurisose-vuohenjuustopaistos

Taidan ruveta pistämään muistiin ex tempore -reseptejäni, tässä tulee eka (mutta ensin pieni johdanto).

Tyypillisesti teen uusia ruokia siten, että kaivan keittokirjasta tai netistä reseptin, jota sitten en oikeastaan noudata. Usein syy noudattamattomuuteen on, että luen reseptejä kun olen jo käynyt kaupassa eikä kaikkia reseptin aineosia ole kotona (varsinkaan niitä erikoisempia).

Herding day today

Today we had a nice day out in Somero. We worked with all our dogs with sheep and they were all doing well (at their own levels). Tykki was practicing inside flanks, penning and stopping (with the last one we need to work most). Viira excercised self-control and in my opinion improved. Letti was doing driving and flanks and little-Pitsi practiced how to move those sheep and improved a lot during her three sessions. It was good experience, once again!

Last canine tooth!

Today, just minutes ago, Pitsi lost her last milk tooth, the other canine tooth in her upper jaw. Why to mention this? Because it has longest roots I have ever seen in milk tooth! She was upset about Pertti, The Bad Guy, who took it off, but luckily she is not very soft... Soon she was playing with a sheep tug toy with him;-)

Koirakylpyläreissu

Hyvinkäällä on koirakylpylä. Olemme silloin tällöin pohtineet, että siellä voisi käydä totuttamassa koiria ennen kuin on kuntoutustarvetta, mutta emme ole saaneet reissua aikaiseksi. Nyt kaverit kertoi, että olisi paikka vapaana ja toinenkin sitten vapautui ja päästiin mukaan kokeilemaan. Mukaan valikoitui tällä kertaa vanhin ja nuorin, Tykki ja Pitsi.

See-saw obstacle and weight

All our beardies were having a session today with see-saw board. It was wither flat on ground or 10 cm moving. Results:
- to my surprise Tykki was interested in to work!
- Letti was running it being very enthusiastic about this obstacle
- Viira was very suspicious telling me it is too narrow for him
- and little Pitsi was small enough to have no problem with the width and obviously I have learned something during the years and managed to reinforce moving paws, not stationary, and soon she was stepping along the board happily :-)

Viiran ällistynyt emäntä

Sorry friends, this is in Finnish :-)
