Mr. L and I are working our asses off trying to finish the final exam (a 10-page HRM analysis) before leaving, at the same time as we are doing laundry... and we need to pack...and we also need to squeeze in some cleaning time cause the place looks like a mess. That’s what usually happens when it’s too much studying going on, the place just falls apart. And walking and caring for the dogs are as always a part of the every-day schedule.
Once back after the weekend trip, I will be working my ass off at completing my other class. But after next week it is one week vacation until the fall semester starts. Damn – talk about nice! This summer has been awful when it comes to school and studying...the workload has been a nightmare. But what doesn’t kill you... well you know the saying.
Anyhow – if everything goes accordingly we’ll be on our way at 4am tomorrow morning as it should take about 7 hours to Malmö. That will suck but hopefully we can entertain ourselves in the car with some good music, reading up on tourist attractions, eating, talking crap, singing... you name it. :)
Anyone who wants a Blue Baby for the weekend? :)

Marina showed James in the junior class, but one of her dogs (from the open class) - Matrix, was sent on to the Best Male class too, which meant she could not show James. Fortunately for me (or I would have had to show James myself) our breeder was at the show today, so she was kind enough to show James for us. What would we do without Marina or Madeleine??!!! :) Cannot THANK YOU ladies enough!!!
The judge was Anne Rode, and here’s James critic (I'll write it in Swedish first & then I'll translate it to English):
Tilltalande helhet. Vackert välskuret huvud. Bra bett, ögon & öron. God hals & rygg. Bra kropp. Goda vinklar fram och bak. Utmärkt kondition. Fria sunda rörelser.
In English it sounds like this:
Appealing overall , Beautiful and well-shaped head. Good bite, eyes & ears. Good neck and back. Good body. Good angles both front and back. Excellent condition. Free, healthy movements.
Matrix & Marina to the far left, and the 2 Champions who eventually beat James to the right.
The judge takes an exta look at James... she sure liked him. No doubt about it.
And this is how it looks when getting home. Man o man, it is exhausting being pretty! :)
I am so happy this happened today, in Askersund - it was sort of on our hometurf and James' breeder was there to be a part of it as well. A Perfect Day, in other words!!
