Then it was time for some updates again:)
The weekend May 8, I was with Bulten on the dog show in Hillerød / Denmark. We went to Sara and Lasse at Belburgo's kennel already on Saturday. Bulten had fun with his cousin Chevalier Rouge Filippa and I was in good company with Sarah and Lasse:) It was good food, consisting of grilled and some home made ice cream for dessert. It tasted wonderful:) Me and Bulten slept over at Sara and Lasse and on Sunday morning me and Sara packed up Bulten and Filippa in the car and went to Denmark to go on the show. It was a very nice show that I will be going to more time! Bulten was given a Good of the judge, he said that Bulten needs more time to get into the body and the judge wanted to see him again in one or two years. Bultens criticism sounded like this: Slightly too high legs, medium bone. Still a bit light in the body. Sufficiently good angles, excellent bite and teeth. Square nose and broad nose. Good broad skull, strong rear movement. The tail to high-placed and carried high in motion. Good coat.

Last weeks we had some lovely weather and we went for some swimming with the boys, some times we have been at sea and there has been a lot of swimming in the lake. The boys really love to be at the lake, they swim and dig in the sand and are generally fun:) I have taken the opportunity to swim them as much as possible sins Bulten has started to have problems with swelling in his paw again. There is a knot that swells to and from and so he limps occasionally. We're going to the vet again this Wednesday, they'll cut it up and see if there is anything left that was missed to be removed last time. He had a small piece of glass in the same place a few months ago and it is possible that a small piece was missed to be removed. Hopefully he heal until 2 June when I have enterd Bulten to a two-day exhibition in Fegen. Otherwise I go there without a dog and cheering on the siblings:)
