06.12.   We had a very interesting day with Katja today. We took part to the handler course in Lahti - our trainer was a professional handler Mr Doug Belter from Canada/USA. I think we learned a lot how to show the best points of our English Setters to the judge ;-) Dear friends, don't worry, we are not going to handle our Setters "American way" in the future either ;-)

Here is a picture taken after the course - I asked Mr Belter to handle Ines (Nattaset Special Feeling) for a picture. Klick the picture to enlarge it. Thank you KSSK and Mr Belter for this impressive course!

27.11.   Yesterday we visited Päivi Ylänne and her absolutelly beautiful 7-weeks old Deringan puppies. The puppies are out of Deringan Star Dunlin (Valsett Starlite Kittiwake x Moon Magic Po Pengtsson) and sired by Encriptor's Child (Carbine Istabraq of Radlake x Hollygrove Tell Tale at Silversun). Please take a look at the photos here.

10.11.   Sorry, I had big problems with my home page. First the hosting company on whose server my home page is located had some problems and they lost my home page files... then they found the backup from July2006. On the next week my own home computer crashed down and I had to wait 3 days to get a new computer and to repair the old one so that I can get the updated home page files out from there... Sorry, if the home page is not working and looking so nice - I have to buy a new web editor software because the old one (FrontPage97) is not working on my new computer so well ;-) Please, be patient - I try to get the new program as soon as possible.
04.11.   Morris (Nattaset May Blob) took part to the international Ch Show in Tartu, Estonia today. The English Setters were judged by Hans Rosenberg, Sweden - and no one got an excellent. But well done anyway Morris and his owners! I also got great news concerning Morris - he has full dentition! Thank you for these nice news Kätlin! By the way Hoyt also seems to got full dentition ;-)
04.11.   Today we visited the puppy show in Espoo. Hoyt (Farthingale High Born), Ulla (Nattaset Globe Flower) and Lupu (Nattaset Bluebell) came to my place already on Friday evening - and you maybe can imagine how my evening and night was with four (incl. Oona) wild English Setter puppies ;-) If you cannot  - I can tell you that it was a very funny and crazy evening - and quite a restless night. Lucky me that I have a fenced place for the dogs on my yard and the puppies were running and playing outdoors for a while so that they calmed down a little bit before I started to trim them on Friday evening. Thank you Katja V, Katja H and Sanna for handling the puppies so well - and congratulations to all for the nice results! Photos here. Thank you Janne and Minna for the lovely photos! Judging reports on each dog's page - under showresults.

30.10.   Today morning we have been on pheasant hunting exercise with Oona. She found two cock pheasants - and I think now she understands what to look for on the fields/in the woods when we have the gun with us ;-) Today it was snowing the first time this winter. Here are some cute snow pictures of Bisse.
   
14.10.   Today we (Oona and me) took part to the handler course arranged by the Setter and Pointer club. Venla & Katja and Lupu, Aada & Kiia were also there. It was a nice day for all of us. Good practise for the puppy show in three weeks!

14.08.   Lupu (Nattaset Bluebell) visited us today with her family. Lupu and Aada enjoyed the visit by running free in my garden and searching for the pheasant cock who always wake us up early in the morning. After I have groomed Lupu and Aada they found a muddy ditch and I had to give a bath to Lupu - but Aada had only dirty paws ;-)
12.08.   Hoyt moved today to his new family in Lappeenranta. Minna, it was lovely to meet you and your whole family - good luck with Hoyt - and see you soon again! Hoyt will be seen at the show rings with me in the future.

23.07.   Tytti (Nattaset Moon Sonata) and her owner Tarja were at the Ch Show in Mäntsälä today - the judge was Soile Bister and Tytti got "very good" in her very first official show (the other ESs got only "good" - so the judge was quite strict). Congratulations Tarja - well done!

Unfortunatelly Tytti is not in whelp - but we try to mate her again on her next season. So, we are going to see her in the show rings again later on autumn.

23.07.   We had a lovely dog show weekend in Estonia! On Sunday there was a Ch Show of The Estonian Setter Club in Liuranna. 30 English Setters were entered - a really nice number of beautiful ESs! We had a lovely and successfull show day! Bisse was Best Veteran in Show and she also had the Best Progeny Group in Show!!! Both judges John Barber and Trudy Walsh loved her a lot. Lilli surpriced us a little bit by beeing the best bitch - and our "come-back star" Muusa was 2nd best bitch and got the CC; so now she will get the Estonian Champion title! Congratulations Pirkko and thank you so much for letting me take Muusa with me to these shows! Our "Flower"-puppies did also very well in the baby puppy class - this was the first show for Oona, Venla and Morris - well done!

Happy 5-years birthday Nattaset "Batman" litter: Batman, Lilli and Annu!!!

15.06.   We spent some lovely days in our summer house in Savonlinna. It was lovely to swim in the lake after the sauna - and the water was so nice warm that I also had a morning swim. Oona was so keen on all kind of plants growing in the water that I had to watch over her all the time - she twise falled down to the water from the jetty - and of course she was diving; not swimming ;-) Hard work for me to be a "bay watch" all the time! We had nice guests too - my niece Sanna and her three children - my "easter dog sitters" Juulia and Jassu - and my godson Jasper.    
10.06.   Another "not our show day"... this time the European Winner -06 show in Helsinki, English Setters were judged by Per Iverssen, Norway, who very clearly preferred the American type. Ines had very fun with Katja in the ring ;-D We "celebrated" Ines' very first "very good" -prize (before this she has got only "excellents") with a cake at home ;-}  Our results today:
Nattaset Special Feeling "Ines" 1st in working class, "very good"
Mariglen Holy Moses "Moses" 3rd in open class (from 13 dogs), "excellent"
09.06.   Quite different weekend this time... we brought our champions Nattaset Blue Catwoman "Lilli", Nattaset After That "Jill" and veteran Bothwell Piece Of Heaven "Bisse" to the Setter and Pointer Special Show of our breed club Kanakoirakerho (for "field type" Setters and Pointers). The judge was an Irish Setter breeder from Sweden Hans Andersson - he was a nice person and handled all dogs very nicely.  Although he didn't like our "show type" setters so much, he was very friendly and told us that inside the "wrong coat" and too much weight there were nice English Setters ;-D
Nattaset Blue Catwoman "Lilli" 1st in champion class, "very good"
Nattaset After That "JIll" 2nd in champion class, "good"
Bothwell Piece Of Heaven "Bisse" 1st in veteran class, "good"

Today Christine and Bosse picked up their puppy Nattaset Passion Flower "Inna" to Sweden. Now we are alone with Bisse and Oona (Nattaset Marigold). It is quite quiet here - but Oona keeps me going ;-D She is a very lively and funny girl - and Bisse also seems to like her a lot

13.05.   Now all puppies have own families. The black ear puppy Nattaset Bluebell  (she doesn't have a permanent nick name yet) went to Kotka and she is co-owned with Kiia Hynninen. There is also a 2-years old Gordon Setter bitch "Ada" in their family. Sorry, I forgot to take a family picture - but when we see next time, I will take it.
09.05.   I took some new photos from the puppies today when they were playing. More photos here.  Otin tänään uusia kuvia pennuista, kun ne leikkivät pihamaalla ja ensimmäistä kertaa myös isojen koirien tarhassa. Kuvat löytyvät täältä.
07.05.   Today one of the puppy buyers informed me that she cannot take the puppy because of their changed working circumstanses. So, Nattaset Bluebottle is still for sale.
06.05.   Tiina and Marek from Estonia picked up their male puppy Nattaset May Blob "Morris" today. Thanks Kätlin for all your help! And.... so many people has pressed me to keep the orange bitch... let's see, maybe she goes later to a very good friend of mine - if she (the puppy) is "good enough" (this was an inside joke).

 

05.05.   Two puppies already went to their new homes. Venla (nr 4, black eye) is co-owned with Katja in Espoo and Ulla (nr.5)  is owned by Hanna in Kotka. Here you can see some new photos when puppies were 6 weeks and 5 days old.

22.04.   Kirsi Liikanen, the dog therapist made the puppy test to all puppies today - they got excellent results - All puppies were active and had lovely temperaments! Thank you Kirsi for the nice evening and that we could follow the test.

Happy Easter! Klick the picture to enlarge it.

25.03.   Kymen Setterit ja Pointterit ry (Setter and Pointer Club) held their open show today. I was not so pleased with the judge change (she breeds some totally different breeds and she isn't an official judge at all) but we decited to go anyway. But after the show I was very dissapointed - my breeder group and bitches got poor kritics and placements - even Ines, who won the NordW-05 title just 2,5 months ago and she is in lovely condition, didn't get anything at all - and she was placed 3rd in her class. The only positiv things were that Nattaset Special Spice "Spice" was the reserve best bitch - and Katja got the BIS-couple with Ines and Lilli. Congrats Minna and Katja - and thanks to Terhi for bringing Jill to the show too.

 

24.03.   Today Nattaset Blue Batman "Pätu" got his INT SH CH title confirmed by FCI. Big congratulations and hugs to Pätu's owner Kätlin!Here is also the photo of Lilli's diploma =)

22.03.  

Nekku's co-owner Katja Hyppänen saw the first time Nekku's puppies today - she brought us lovely flowers and cookies for Nekku.

18.03.   Puppies' sire Moses visited us today with his owners Outi and Antti. The puppies got nice presents as well as Nekku and me too. I croomed Moses for the Setter and Pointer Open show held next weekend. Good luck Moses & Outi to the show! We all keep our fingers crossed for you!
18.03.   Jane Dennis (Mariglen English Setters, UK) sent me some lovely photos. On the first picture there is the Crufts 2006 Best Of Breed GB SH CH Mariglen Flaming Colours "Flame". She is a litter sister to my puppies' sire Mariglen Holy Moses. The second picture is from the Crufts 2005 picture callery and the dog on the picture is Moses and Flame's sire Crufts 2005 BIS-2 GB SH CH Bournehouse Royal Colours. The third picture is Mariglen Pengtsson's Legacy "Lego" (at 12 weeks old). Lego is a son of Moon Magic Po Pengtsson "Pest". Klick the pictures to enlarge them.

15.03.   Nekku's "mum" Tuula was here and helped me yesterday and today so that I could sleep some hours very deep and careless. (I used to sleep in the same room with the puppies the first week so that I can be sure that everything is ok with the dam & puppies... and if you know the newborn English Setter puppies - they can be quite noisy!!!). Many thanks Tuula - and Katja who helped me and Nekku on the night when the puppies were born!

Nekku is a very loving and caring mother - so I have a lot of time to take nice photos and update my home page =D

14.03.   Nattaset Moonflower "Nekku" gave birth to seven (1 male and 6 females) lovely puppies last night. The puppies and mum are in good condition. The proud dad Mariglen Holy Moses "Moses" sent already his love to the mum and pups =) More about the parents on "Puppies" page.
14.03.   Nattaset Piece Of Moon "Bertta" has been placed 3rd at best Show Setter bitch competition in Estonia. Nattaset Blue Batman was placed 7th at best Show Setter male competiton! Congratulations Annika, Ina and Kätlin!
12.03.   Great news from Crufts - England! Moses' litter sister GB SH CH Mariglen Flaming Colours "Flame"won BOB at Crufts today! Huge congratulations to her owner and breeder Jane Dennis! Moses and Flame's dad was BIS-2 at Crufts just one year ago!
08.03.   Ines has been ultra scanned - and the result was what we were afraid of - she is not in whelp. But Katja found a good point again: we can take part to the European Winner show in June with Ines =) And we also planned to go to the Crufts in 2007 - so maybe Ines can wait one more year for the "right fiancé".

We are very much waiting for the birth of Nekku's puppies. The two young daughters of my niece promised to take two months free from the scool so that they can come and help me in taking care of the puppies with Nekku =)))) I was really impressed - but I had to ask them to come and visit me for two or three days over Eastern. Now they already plan how to come to my place - it will be their very first trip by train.

23.02.   We had a lovely Champion party with our Swedish and Estonian guests here at my place. Here are some photos of our doggy guests: Photo right: Batman & Marmite Yorkshire Gold "Jaffa", Photo left: Batman & Iron Man Of Slow Fox "Happy",  Klick the photo to enlarge it.

08.02.   HUGE congratulations to the "Moon" litter for their 3 years birthday! After visiting the vet and getting the great puppy news we celebrated a little bit at Nekku's home. Tuula has made many delicious cakes and goodies - and we also had a glass of sparkling wine!
08.02.   We had a very exciting day today. We visit our Vet Hannu Pajulahti with Nekku and he ultra scanned her - and we saw 5-7 puppies! So, the next Nattaset puppies are due from mid March 2006. Puppy inguiries are welcome.
05.02.   We were a little bit unlucky with the matings this time. Hjallis was still a "little boy" and wanted only to play and have fun with Ines.

On Friday evening we went to our "vice-fiancé"  Oliver (Nattaset That's All) and he did good job but we didn't get a right "tie" - Oliver came with us to Koria - and on Saturday he had a good try again. So, now we can only keep our fingers crossed that it was enough and that Ines's season was not too far (her progesterone level was already on Thursday quite high).

Oliver has healthy hips (B), he is BAER-tested both sides ok, only one premulare missing and he has two lovely litters before. From the first Deringan litter there are three winning dogs: Deringan Star Edison, D Star Emmigrant and D Star Emeritus. The second litter by Nicoret's kennels is only one year old - they don't have merits at the shows yet. I will make an own page for Oliver with his show results and progenies soon.

21.01.   "Ines" NordW-05 Nattaset Special Feeling came into season today. We are going to mate her to the young and handsome Swedish gentleman "Hjallis" Farthingale Put Yorkshire On You (HD A).
15.01.   It is so peacefull and quiet here at home now. Annu, Spice, Nekku and Moses went home yesterday after our 1,5 hours nice run in the woods and field. Sorry, I didn't get so many pictures, because I had Nekku on the lead - and Moses tried to mate her all the time.... and I didn't see Spice, Annu and Bisse so much - and when I saw them they were running so fast that my camera and me were much too slowly to take some good pictures.
13.01.   Tonight we had the second successfull mating - this time with 15 minutes tie (I think we all were happy that it didn't take so long as last time =) Tomorrow I try to take some new photos of Nekku, Moses, Annu, Spice and Bisse when we go to the woods in the daylight.
11.01.   SUCCESS with the mating!!!  Moses and Nekku had about 40 minutes tie tonight =)
08.01.   A lot of Setter energy in my house again - Spice and Annu will stay 10 days here while their owner Minna is on skiing holiday in Austria. I also picked up Moses from Hyvinkää yesterday - so the gentleman is here ready for his "bride" Nekku.
06.01.   We celebrated Ines' Nordic winner -05 title and Bisse's 10 years birthday at Terhi's place with a lot of goodies and fun. Take a look at the photos here. More photos from the party updated on Natta and Jill's page - valokuvia - muita koirakuvia and lapset yms.
03.01.  

Nekku (Nattaset Moonflower) started her season - please keep your fingers crossed for the successfull mating =)

29.12.   Bisse celebrates her 10 years birthday today - huge congratulations! Klick here and you can see some birthday photos - we will have the birthday & Ines' Nordic Winner-05 party in about a week, so more photos coming up soon.

We have had a lovely week - me and Bisse has got a lot of "Setter energy" and joy from Ines and Lilli, who has stayed at our place while their owner Katja is in Helsinki.

28.12.   New pages for "Annu" Nattaset Blue Vicki Vale and "Pätu" Nattaset Blue Batman with the show results pages.
27.12.   "Spice" Nattaset Special Spice got her own page and show results page today.
26.12.   We had a lovely Christmas time with Bisse in Jaala. Bisse was allowed to run free every day in the snow on the fields and woods - and she also loved to roll in the snow. As you can see, she really enjoyed her life - as well as our German Hunting Terrier friend Elmo too.

Bisse's 10-years birthday is this week on Thursday 29th December!

18.12.   Nordic Winner -05 Int. Ch Show in Helsinki; judge Patsy Hollings, GB. 29 English Setters entries - this time most of them the true English type.

Katja did it - she won

BOB and Nordic Winner -05 title with "Ines" Nattaset Special Feeling!!!

BOS was Deringan Star Edison (sired by Nattaset That's All).

We all did excellent:

Nattaset Special Spice "Spice" 1st in working class, 3rd best bitch
Nattaset Moonflower "Nekku" 2nd in working class, 4th best bitch
Nattaset After That "Jill" 1st in champion class
Mariglen Holy Moses "Moses"  1st in interemed class, 4th best dog
Nattaset breeder group - Best Breeder Group of Breed

Judging report for our breeder group: Concidering this kennel obviously appeals me as the type is so typical of this lovely breed. It would be easy to give her 1st in this class with lots of entries. Congratulations of very good breeding.

Thanks and congratulations to all Nattaset owners and our friends! We had a lovely show day together!

17.12.   Finnish Winner -05 int. Ch Show in Helsinki; judge Tiina Illukka, Finland; 31 English Setter entries - most of them "Americans". Illukka clearly preferred the American type - so it wasn't our best show day.

 Our results:

Nattaset Special Feeling "Ines" 1st in working class (excellent), 4th best bitch
Nattaset After That "Jill" 1st in champion class (excellent)
Nattaset Moonflower "Nekku" 2nd in working class (very good)
Mariglen Holy Moses "Moses" Intermediate class 1st (very good)

We had also fun in the evening at Anitta's place - 11 people and 9 dogs =)

14.12.   Katja, Päivi and me have planned to travel to the Swedish winner show with our dogs last weekend - but we cancelled our trip because of the judge change. Our breed specialist Mrs Valerie Foss was meant to take our breed and the FCI7 group competiton - but about two weeks before the show the show commitee changed our judge and we decited to "boycott" the show like the most of Swedish English Setter owners - from 28 entries were only 4 dogs shown in the ring.

On the coming weekend we have two big shows in Helsinki - the Finnish Winner -05 and The Nordic Winner -05. We will take part to these two shows and have a nice "christmas party" together on Saturday evening. Results and photos coming up soon.

Great news from England: Fenston Arabella At Mariglen got 4 dog puppies sired by Pest. We are so happy that Pest managed to mate two lovely bitches (Clemmie and Tixi) before he got ill and passed away.
 
07.11.   "Litters" pages has been updated with pedigrees and progenies with photos.
07.11.   Last week Bertta (Nattaset Piece Of Moon) passed the field trial in Latvia and after getting the diploma she can apply for the Estonian, Latvian, Liethuan and Baltian Champion titles, because she already has the CCs needed. Huge congratulations Annika and Ina - and big thanks for the hard work with the hunting exercise with Bertta!
05.11.   Lilli (Nattaset Blue Catwoman) received the official Latvian Champion title with the nice diploma and rousette per post today. Congratulations Katja for Lilli´s new title! And thank you Kätlin for helping us to get the title!
01.11.   Some new photos added on Pest´s progeny page.
21.10.   We got very sad news from England - the vet had to put Pest (FinW-00-01, NordW-01, SW-02 Moon Magic Po Pengtsson)  to sleep today. He had a tumour in his neck. Last week he was still running and playing happily on the field with the other dogs  - this all happened so unexpected and soon. Thank you so much Margaret, Brian, Jane D, Jane T and Linda for taking such a good care of our beloved gentleman - and thanks to orthopaedic vet Peter Cockett who offered to examine him and try to save his life. Pest managed to mate two lovely bitches in UK - one litter (5 dogs and 3 bitches) has born on 4th October by Walshaw Setters - and we keep our fingers crossed for the another litter too. Pest had a beautiful nature and lovely type, which he has certainly passed on to his progeny here in Finland and abroad.

Here you can see his progeny =)

The family Attwood in England offered him a loving and permanent home for the rest of his life. He is now co-owned by Margaret Attwood (Swannery), Jane Dennis (Mariglen), Jane Tucker (Walshaw) and Linda Harris (Gemsett). Pest seems to enjoy his life very much in his new coutry by living with four other English Setters (all bitches!) and running on the fields with the other dogs of Swannery's and Mariglen's. He has already mated one bitch - and we keep our fingers crossed for the coming puppies!
