A sad day, as I got the devastating results from the lab. Iza did have lymphoma, and I had to let her go.
Taking the bus to Gjøvik today, to catch up with great friends and to groom a dog for the NKK Bø Show on Saturday. Looking forward to go as a student judge myself, with lots of beautiful hounds. Using the time well, reading standards.
I have some new grooming toys to play with
Koser meg med litt nytt nappe og stelleutstyr! Det skal nappes frem vakre hunder nå når det våres. Børsten var bare helt knall til å gå over hundene med etter at jeg var ferdig med å nappe, fjerner all løs pels. Også knall til å gå over hundene rett før vi skal inn i ringen senere i år! Takk for super hjelp, Siren Næs!
I have the flu!!
When I am sick and stuck in bed or on the sofa, it is so good to have a nice and warm whippet that will not leave my side. Barnsley is the one that will not leave my side.
Når man ligger i influensa og ikke er bra, er det iallfall godt med en deilig liten «kakkelovn» som ligget og holder meg varm og god. Verdens beste Barnsley, passer godt på sin syke mor.
