Yes, I know there is some times since last bloging, lol.

It has been so busy, for a couple of week I was at workshop with Amelia Kinkade in animal communicator. It was good to meet here again and it was a much better workshop then last time, all the particpant was rely ageer to learn and put aside all the «fear with I can’t doe this». When I talk with Amelia, I told here that I breed longhair zwerg dachshund and that my Kelly is pregnant, she then ask if it would be much trouble for me to pick here up and let Kelly be our teacher. It was just 15 min drives, so that was not any problem. It was intresting for me to have Kelly in the class and the students was rely good with the information they recived from Kelly. Else in the workshop there was a lot of WOW moment, I had mine also and it was a great workshop. If you want to learn how to comunicate with animal, look at Amelia’s webpage for the schedule. It is not so difficult that you think, Amelia’s method are very easy to use and she is a great teacher.

This weekend on Saturday it was a ordinary bloodtracking field trail in my dachshund club, I did not have any of my dogs attend. Since Kelly is the only one that are trained, but are not allowed to join since she is now 5 weeks due in here pregnancy. But one of my puppi buyer was there with his dog Ricco, that is a puppie from Ellie and Charlie’s litter. Ricco did it very well, hi got 1 price with Honor Price, way to goe Ricco and Yngve. Now they need one more 1.price to gain the Working Champion, think they are going to a new bloodtracking filed trail this weekend, fingers crossed 😀

Here are some photos of the little lad and with his owner Yngve:
