Vacationer

Hanies brother Nalle came here for his vacation (eg. his family is travelling). Minnie started her season two days after he came so we are lucky as the boys need to be separated from the girls about weeks time, after Nalle has left. Nalle & Hanie are real “playaholics”. They just keep playing and having so

Leap year

February 29th is a day when women can propose to marriage in Finland*. If they are turned down, the man is supposed to get the fabric for the skirt. Hanie wearing the fabric for no reason at all. Other than it was fun. Minnie 4 years ago.   *women can propose to marriage all the

Heavy weight lifting

It was one of those days when snow sticks in the legs due to long hair. Eddie had most of it as he has most hair of the four. I tried to help him to get it off couple of times but it only worked for couple of seconds. So it was the walk in the forest

TV-stars

My flatties were show in tv program “Kuningaskuluttaja” four times in February. It was filmed in December before snow. You can see the flatties below in timing 4:02 – 4:14.

Taking photos of black dogs

Is not easy. Any tips? These photos I took on the weekend. I love the flattie photos you can see for example in the Instagram and would love to take good photos.

Exercising again

It’s been almost 14 days since the last cough so we did the normal walk for the first time yesterday and then again today. This time with the goats too.

Kennel cough

Due to Hanie’s season I took Minnie to the training on 21/12. About week later she started coughing. Then some days later Hanie started and Eddie coughed couple of time during one day. Minnie’s cough was the longest but she has not been coughing today (Friday). Hanie only coughed once. So we didn’t even have

Happy New Year

All the best for the year 2016!

Merry Christmas

Each Christmas I remember The ones of long ago; I see our mantelpiece adorned With stockings in a row. Each Christmas finds me dreaming Of days that used to be, When we hid presents here and there, For all the family. Each Christmas I remember The fragrance in the air, Of roasting turkey and mince

Flatties are personal trainers

Now that Hanie is on season I’m exercising them in two parts: boys & girls separately. It’s hard work. I also got some natural tablets to Alfie. He gets quite excited during the seasons so I’m hoping these to help at least take the edge off.   I will write later how it went as I have

Cycling in December

I received four bicycle lamps to test a while ago and we all spent evenings in the dark forest. It was actually great and I was surprised to find out how much fun we had. I had to give them back after the testing but today we went back to bicycling in the forest during the day

Season

Hanie has started her first season. She is now 1 year and 2 months of age. I notice how Alfie was sniffing Hanie and checked her out and yes, she is now in season. This Monday we will still go to the dog school but after that we need to have a break for a

Reflecting vests for the dogs

Boys got new reflecting vests today. The salesman said size L (large) should be fine for retrievers as XL is for the really big boys. Apparently male flatties are big boys. The vest was very tight for the boys so I will need to get them size XL and let girls ware these extra ones

Alfie & aphorisms

Alfie has been posing in couple of aphorisms lately. Good boy. Hanie & Minnie has been posing in one aphorism too.

Massage for the boys

Both of they boys had an hour massage each today. This was the first massage for both of them. At first the movements were checked and then their health situation (good), daily food plan (raw food) etc were written down. Eddie was first. He was a bit surprised what is going on at first but after

Bath time

The whole gang had a nice bath today with Marseille soap. Boys will get a massage tomorrow so I wanted to make sure their coat is not too sticky. I have used the Marseille soap with Eddie earlier and it has worked very well on him. Eddie has lightly wavy coat. After the soap his coat has looked so healthy (not

Reflecting vests for dogs

Eddie & Alfie had reflecting vest from the Santa about 7 years ago. Those vests have been best ever. Minnie has had vests but they do not last like the ones boys have. It seems hard to find those vest anymore in Finland. We have more “quality” vest now a days but unfortunately they do
