Really nice shots, they're very active at that age and need a lot of play and

attention, great that you can get into the countyside with her.

Thanks. I really hope that she gets what she needs. I own my time so I can do what I like the most, exploring nature, photography and now this little forest companion. Sometimes these three come together

Wonderful pictures. You capture her personality well. Does she live outdoors or in the house with you? If she is indoors with you, I hope as a herder, her bark is not as loud as that of our Norwegian Elkhounds, which was developed to be heard by the hunter far away and lead him to the Elk they have cornered(called aMoose in America)!

Your close ups. Your pictures are not only estethically pleasing but also entomologically informative. Have to look closer next time :-)

Sirkka lives in an apartement in the center of Gothenburg. Yes, she can bark but it´s not the cornering or hunting barking, it´s the guarding barking (please forgive my english) when something is new to her. Not a problem though.

When it happens I talk to her gently, stroke her on the cheek and breast and she calms down.

She loves children but at the same time she doesn´t really know how to approach them. Then she often barks at the same time as she wags her tail.


Parents get afraid of the barking dog but children can distinguish between angry and friendly barking and they never get afraid. Generally it ends up well; with the "grown ups" I mean :-)

Children and animals are the future. Children power! Animal power!

(A chimpansee can give blood to a human and vice versa - that´s nature´s own "intelligent design")

Sorry expresssing too many thoughts - just can´t stand self deception and stupidity.


I wish you a nice sunday evening and coming week

Peter Sellers:

Does your dög bite?


The other person:

No


The dog bites


Peter Sellers:

But you said that your dög doesn´t bite


The other person:

It´s not my dog

Thanks. I´ll tell her. If a suitable sire comes along - who knows - maybe. You´ll be the first to know :-)

Very nice. Love the shot in the tall grass.

Funny - I have a 'working' dog to - a German Shepherd. The only thing she works at is taking over bed space from my wife and I

Nice work! I needed a smile today and these shots provided it.
