In January two grandchildren were born on the same date - the 13th. One girl in Oslo, Philippa and one girl in New York, Clara. This lead to an immediate trip to Oslo and then in February we visited New York. In March the third girl, Moa arrived but closer to home, in Skanör even! Of course all the births had to be followed by two christenings and one name giving ceremony during the summer.
To make it all better I had a surgery on my foot in May and couldn't move quite alright for a while...it's fine now :).
The New yorkers came for the summer and stayed with us for six weeks, and so did the Norwegians (but for a shorter time). In September the whole family met agin but this time in lovely Spain where Emilie and Fredrik got married <3
In October Mats and I left to visit Holland, spent time with friends from our time there. And for thanksgiving we left for New York once again and came home mid December just time enough to prepare for the holidays.
I have produced two litters this year the M 2and N2-litter (more info under litter) - both large litters. Thank God that one litter was living with my co-owner Eeva Kalthoff who did a fantastic job bringing them up. The puppies all found loving families and I have only got good reports from all of them.
Some high-lights of the busy and very hardworking dogs this year. I'm so grateful for all the help and enthusiasm they owners show.....
