Little hope

After loosing Niisi in November we were back in starting spot: Petsu is getting older, though healthy and well now but all the time getting closer to his 12th birthday than 11th. We have been asking puppy plans of some nice combinations, and now it seems Sussie can help us with the aid of Mumma and Wolfie (and their owners, of course). You can follow the development of the litter in kennel Boomtown's pages. We have already bought the tickets to fly to see the puppies, but so far we need to rely on the photos Sussie is delivering...

Minna herding with both Beardie boyz

Yes, you read the title correctly. Though Petsu is still more of Pertti's dog and Tykki is mamma's, I decided to take both boys herding last Saturday. We were supposed to go herding all together, but Pertti had to go elsewhere and we had one dog's time "for sale". I asked some of our friends to participate but they were not able to make it and so I decided to take a risk with Petsu.

Added a short analysis of background of the DLA-tested Beardies

Welcome to our pages also now in 2011!
I have done some analysis of the background of Bearded Collies that have been DLA-tested. Since I think some of our readers may not be very familiar what DLA means, I have added a short description of basic definitions. You find the text and its links under title "Terveys-Health" and there "DLA type study". Hope you find it interesting!

DLA-tyyppauksesta

Tervetuloa vierailemaan sivuillamme myös vuonna 2011!
Olen väkertänyt hieman analyysiä ja laskentaa DLA-tyypattujen koirien sukujuurista tänne sivuille. Tekstissä on mukana myös pieni pätkä kansantajuisuuteen pyrkivää selostusta perusasioista DLA:sta. Löydät tekstin linkkeineen Terveys-Health-väliotsikon alaotsakkeen DLA-tyypitys alta. Toivottavasti pidät asiaa ja selostusta kiinnostavana.

Season's Greetings

Hyvää joulua kaikille ystävillemme ja sivujen lukijoille!
Merry Christmas to all of our friends and followers of the pages!

Minna, Pertti, Petsu, Tykki, Wilson-kissa sekä lammaskatras

Kesannon pikkupeto


Tänään oli Wilsonin aika päästä ensimmäisen kerran tositoimiin. Sovimme Wilsonin omistajan kanssa, että pidämme Wilsonia ensin sisällä jokusen viikon, että se oppisi missä on lämmin makuupaikka ja ruokakuppi. Nyt on mennyt neljä viikkoa siitä kun Wilson tuli Kesannolle, joten oli aika päästää se ensimmäisen kerran ulkoilemaan.

Kissa...

On aika tullut laittaa Kesannon sivuille päivitys. Kai sitä koiristakin jotain voisi päivittää; Tykin agility meni talvitauolle (täytyisi keksiä miten voisi edes satunnaisesti jatkaa), lampaat on pakkasten ja lumen myötä siirtyneet lampolaan sisälle eikä paimentamista ole, joten lähinnä elämämme on lenkkeilyä pimeässä ja joskus ajelemme katuvaloihin.

Niisi - In Memoriam 1.4-3.11.2010

This is hard to do, it has taken me several days to collect myself to write this. This message has both languages, English and Finnish.

Niisi 6 months today!

Niisi became 6 months today. So time flies... She did not get anything special as birthday present if we do not count on playing with her and cuddling a lot in the evening. Before that she had taken a good long nap since she was herding with Pertti. She is not much asking whether ewes want to be worked or not, but she works them. Full stop. She is also fast little beast so Pertti will have difficult time with her AND changing his own behavior from Petsu-mode to Niisi-mode, if not yet but soon...
