Hello again!

Now updates are coming close;)

The other day we had to go to the vet with Manson, I noted that he had a gray patch on his left eye and was a bit scared that he had started to get cataracts. So I booked an appointment with an ophthalmologist and his eyes shone Manson. There were no cataracts he had but a slight injury he probably received from a tag or branch or something similar. So he will now make the eye drops for ten days and then everything will be okay again:)
 
It's getting spring out there and it is particularly noticeable on the dogs that love to be out now when the sun heats up. We walk our usual rounds on weekdays and on weekends we try to go on long walks with our friends. We usually cook hot chocolate and take some tea out, it is wonderful to sit down in a sunspot and just enjoy the approach of spring! Below you can se some pics from our walk 20110219. As usual it is Sanna behind the camera :)

One day we drove down to Nogersund and visited the boys' best friend Zodd. Sanna had the camera along and took some pictures you can se below. When we're on the beach, Bulten and Zodd only eyes for each other. Manson loves everything about the beach to do. He loves to swim, dig, playing with the stone and bounce on the sand, he becomes like a youngster again:)

We were out for a nice long walk in the day again with Sanna, Zodd and my two sisters Angelica and Filippa, pictures from the day will come as soon as I got the pictures from Sanna:)
 
I've also added a couple of new pictures in Bultens Gallery!
 
Concludes with how the image of my heart would have looked if I had it x-rayed...
 
 
That´s all for now!

Hi again :)
 
Yesterday me, Totte and Bulten was at Malmö International Dog Show. It was Bultens last show as a youngster and I did not have higher expectations when he has "dieted" last months ... He is still young in body and I know he will take time before he can be counted as "fully grown" male. But he's only 22 months and is supposed not to have been built as a 5 year old male.

Judge this day was Bo Skalin, a very nice man who was very good with dogs and he took his time and explained why he placed a dog this or that.

Bulten finished third best youngster with a Exellent. The criticism was: Exellent temperament, exellent head that could be slightly thicker (it comes with age, explained the judge;), clean cut jaw, beautiful eyes, could have a little more fore chest, very good proportions, nice topline, good strong neck, moves very well.

I would like to say a big congratulations to Jenny and Niklas owners of Bultens brother All Brand Bordeaux Miracle Boy aka Alfons and Bettan and David, breeders of Alfons who took home Best of Breed with CAC and CACIB! Way to go :)))))
 
I would also like to say congrats to Sanna and Zodd for Zodds Best of Breed that same day :)))))))
 
Se ya!

Some miner update at Bultens page under ED and PennHIP.
 
Some of you might wonder why i chose to do PennHIP on Bulten and the reason is that i got the oppertunity to do it and i thought: Why not :) And i can honestly say that i am more that happy with the result :) Bulten scoored >90 procentile :)))) I think it is a good compliment to the usual X-ray system (FCI) sins the PennHip only compare the results of Dogue de Bordeaux to results against other Dogue de Bordeaux or wich breed you decide to PennHIP. I will do the regular X-ray at Bulten, probably in april.
 
All the best to you :)
