Last month has been busy, dogs coming and going. From Kempele dogs visiting here and ours dog visiting there. Yesterday Laikku came again to be as Repe's buddy here in Utajärvi. Yesterday Anne and I visit also Seinäjoki Int dog show with Nicki and Alma. I announced also Awa, but she started her season so I decided, that maybe it is best to left her home.

Big congrats to Kempele ! Unfortunately we do not have any pictures from show, my camera was broken and Anne'ss camera not function well.
In weekend Laikku become sick. Monday when we went to see vet, they say that she has pyometra. Only right decision was that they operate and take her uterus off. This was sad thing because in Saturday vet still said that she saw 4-6 fetus in there.

I must say that now I must be very pleased to Awas this winter results. She has been racing in this winter with three different drivers team and all those drivers is been strange to her, also two times she get almost completely stranger team mate, still she only run and not take any notice other else, this seasons whole result was 2 x REK2, 1 x REK1 and ALMA:s winter meeting race best team + also in Jongu best malamute team ! This is very good result in her first racing season...
