Nina’s First AKC Points

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Last weekend, at the Swedish Vallhund Club of America’s supported entry in West Springfield, Massachusetts, Nina won her first AKC championship points, taking Winners Bitch on the Friday and Sunday, and Best of Winners on the Saturday, for one point each day. Not bad, considering she had a really upset tummy on the Saturday and didn’t show very well! She was back to her usual happy self on the Sunday. Needless to say, I was thrilled.

Rakki The Famous

Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

On Thursday I got a phone call from Animal Planet, asking if they could use a picture of one of my Vallhunds for a viewer poll on their website during the Eukanuba National Championship. So I said “sure, pick whichever one you like” (what, was I gonna say no?), and here’s Rakki at bottom right (relaxing on the deck at the cottage, looking stoned). His non-Amanda-website Intarweb debut lasted for as long as the herding group was on (Ingrid Low’s lovely CH Aros Brave Brewster won breed):

So what did people learn from this picture of Rakki, representing his ancient, rare and noble breed to American viewers? Dude…wait…what? Vallhunds reprazent!
