When mommy forgets

We’ve been away and purchased food to Wille. He gets fresh food now a period and some carrots, marrow-bone and sausages as a treat.

This morning i made a impromptu breakfast. You take what you have because Wille don’t skip breakfast or delays it. He becomes a huge diva when it’s around feedingtime. It’s all about him because he is starving. Now he is chewing on a bone next to me. For me it’s coffee (decaff) and soon I’ll have to clean the appartment. Have booked a walk with my sister later today. We talk on the phone while we go out with our dogs.

Hope you have a peaceful and relaxing Sunday


Before retrieving, gametime!

As a warmup before retrieving, we made a little game. I threw the dummie and asked Wille to run and get it. We have trained a lot on this because Wille didn´t want to hand over the dummie earlier. He dropped it before he ran up to me to get the reward. That is something Cocker spaniels is known for. They can have i minor ”my prescious” mentality about things but with a lot of practise and stubborness you can get past that little problem. This is huge progress for us.

What we are doing.

1 throw

2 Say go-get-it

3 Give a reward


About page update

I really wish we were lying in bed right now but we are already in the stable when you read this. Getting some dirt under our nails and a lot of exercise. Wille like the horses’ food so he vacuums the stable floor for pellets and then he needs to go… frequently after. Like four or five times.

I updated my about page with a english one, for all you new English-speaking readers. You can find i here (click)


When I want to cheer up

I love flowers and especially tulips. The apartment is cleaned and these stand in the window for every one to see. They cheer you up, don’t they? Tulips means spring for me and yes I long for spring now. Especially the flowers that pop up everywhere.

It has been a nice week with lot for me to think about and learn. I hope that something good is coming from all the inspiration that sprinkled over me these last days. 

Have a nice weekend my dear readers.


He is making a mess

Friday morning and we have been outside for the daily early morning walk. I haven’t had a sleep-in since Wille moved in. He is a real early bird my dog. It looks like it’s going to be a lovely day today. 


He is fabulous

HIGH FIVE people. We are training sit, down, sit nicely and HIGH five. He is so fab. 

We needed to get in to the right mood for retrieving so started with this. It always end with me laughing at Wille. He is so eager so he is trying to enticepate my next command.


What a springday and planing on retrieving 

I adore the sun. Absolutely love it. 

Efter en jättefin promenad i solen har jag nu ätit lunch och sitter och skissar en stund på apporteringsövningar. Vill lära mig det tekniska ordentligt den här gången så jag inte glömmer stopp-signal eller var W ska vara eller hur jag ska stå. 

Den här övningen ska lära W att kunna stanna halvvägs fram till dummiesen. Jag funderar lite på upplägg och hur jag ska förklara vad vi håller på med förutom filmerna jag visar så småningom. Funderar även på bästa vinkeln att filma på samt höjd. Jag tycker att det är så roligt att titta på förra årets filmer men då gjorde jag filmningen och övningarna mest på skoj. 

Translation: After a really nice walk in the sun. I have now eaten lunch and sit and sketch for a while on retrieving exercise. I want to learn the technical properly this time so i do not forget a stop signal or where i should stand.

In this exercise we will practice the stop signal with the whistle.
