3.9.2017 ALL GOOD THINGS...

All good things come to an end and now it's time for Ṻberdorfs Heikkone ”Hessu” to leave it to the younger generation. For 6 years there have been many failures and many triumphs. It's on to retirement for the older but healthy gentleman.


THIS BEGAN TEN YEARS AGO

Time flies by - this year, ten years ago, the first litter was registered under the Dumond name. 2 males and 3 females came into the world. Now this quintet passes the time away in retirement at home, scratching away all day long.

5.8.2017 NARVA

In Ukmerge, Lithuania the standard two rooms - one bathroom setup awaited us. This is always a potential horror story. Fortunately, our fears were alleviated as we were treated to clean and free facilities.

In Narva, Estonia, deluxe rooms with saunas awaited us. Our hosts were even kind enough to inform us to not bring a broom into the sauna.

This show marks the end of the 2017 Summer Show circuit.

4.2.2017 11TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

Our Grand Old Lady Penni (Tiffany Astronaut) turns 11 years old today.

Penni is doing great. She goes for daily walk and eats well. Her hearing has gotten weaker... or it could be selective hearing. She has been an easy dog with very few problems. She has been rather healthy and in little need of medication. It's time to sing Happy Birthday to honor this old lady.

Hopefully, we will be wishing Penni many, many more Happy Birthdays.
