Sorry, we didn't have any interest to show our dogs for him :-/  From 32 entries, there were 9 from English type - from which even 3 absent. But we were very happy for the final result - Deringan Star Edison "Dino" (sired by Nattaset That's All) won BOB and the Winner-07 title. Huge congratulations to Dino's owner Katri Merinen and his breeder Päivi Ylänne - well done!

Special thanks for the Nattaset "friend book" with 30 stories and pictures of the dogs (the most of them bred by me) and the bottle of  "Nattaset sparkling wine"!!!

22.10. Our life is getting quite easy and calm. "Mosse" Nattaset LookALike moved to his new home in Valkeala today. Good luck Mari with our funny boy Mosse. I hope he is not doing stupid things like eating more shoes etc.

Now I have only Bisse (Bothwell Piece Of Heaven, almost 12 years old) and Vilkku (Nattaset Rock Baby, 5 months) at home - but lucky us we have so many Setter friends in the near - so we aren't alone.... Now Luca (Swannery Unforgettable) is staying some days here and playing with Vilkku ;-)

   
21.10. My resque dog "Eppu" is now finally healthy and ready to go to the new family. His new loving owners are Kirsi and Isto from Parikkala. Eppu has a Setter friend 5,5 months old "Elmo", who he seemed to like a lot. Elmo and Eppu started to play with each others right away when they met at my place. Good luck Kirsi and Isto with both of your Setters - and thanks for giving such a good home for Eppu! We will miss you Eppu, you are a really Gentleman By Nature!

Today we celebrated Eppu's recovery with coffee and cake at Anjalan Eläinlääkäriasema - clinic. I am so thankful to the Vet Hannu Pajulahti and my best friend and "small animal attendant" Katja who helped me to rescue Eppu's life!
   
14.10. An unusual weekend for me... Paris without any dogs! Lovely city with wonderful weather +18 degrees and the sun was shining from the bright sky! But how unbelievable it was - I met two French men in the connection train at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport - they had two dog cages with them - and in the cages two English Setter puppies imported from Russland! The puppies were going to South of Franche for hunting dogs. I thought I was dreaming - and that was not all. One woman standing in the same coach told us with fluent English that she owns two English Setters too!

   

   
06.10. "Leona" Nattaset Marigold took part to Int All Breed Ch Shown in Sundswall, Sweden - with great result Best Of Breed, CC and Cacib. Congratulations Kickie!
   
05.10. May I introduce You my resque dog (since Beginning of July, 2007) "Eppu".

Eppu had a very bad cronical anal sack infection - he was bleeding a lot and the first vet didn't give him much hopes to survive and his owner wanted to give up and put him to sleep. I felt so sorry for Eppu, the grand son of my Bisse. Eppu was only 5 years old and very friendly and easy going gentleman - so I asked the owner if I can try to get him healthy and to find a new loving and caring home for him. I took a big risk - even my own Vet Hannu Pajulahti, who has been seeing and treating a lot of these kind of anal problems, didn't promise me anything when we started to nurse Eppu. I have some pictures of Eppu's anus taken in July and I am 100% sure that you don't want to see those horrible pictures! You couldn't see which hole is his anus and which holes the inflammed skin! But with patience Hannu Pajulahti checked Eppu about every two weeks to make sure that the treatment is just right for him. After we thought the worst was over, his anal sacks got inflammed again. And we started the treatment from the beginning. After some more weeks Eppu was ready for the big operation, where Hannu made the surgical removal of his anal sacks. The operation took about 2 hours - and we went home - but after we have been at home 3 hours, Eppu's anals started to bleed very badly and we had to go back to the vet. After about one hour try to find out where the blood comes from we almost gave up and discussed about putting him to sleep... but at the same time Hannu found the place where the blood came from and he managed to stop the bleeding - at the last minute indeed! After the operation we had a very hard week - but Eppu was very brave and he really fought to get healthy again! The girls and Hannu from the clinic called me every day and asked how Eppu is doing - as well as all my friends who knew about the big operation. Now it is two weeks after the operation and it looks like Eppu is surviving and getting healthy.

   
30.09. Pirre (Nattaset Good Looks) visited us today and we took some new photos of Pirre and Mosse. You can see the photos here!

16.02. Tytti and the puppies are doing well ;-) New pictures here.
   
15.02. Tytti gave birth to six sweet puppies, but unfortunatelly one male puppy was still-born. But the two sisters and three brothers are doing well as well as the mum. It has been a very very long day for all of us. I think the dead puppy influenced to the whole birth - the puppies were coming out now and then and we had to wait long time between each puppy. But Tytti has been a wonderfull mother - so patient and brave. And thanks to her owner Tarja, that she is in such a good condition that she has stand the long delivery so well. Best regards and thanks to the dad candidates Moses and Ruffe!

Tytti sai tänään kuusi suloista pentua, joista valitettavasti yksi urospentu syntyi kuolleena.Mutta kaksi siskoa ja kolme veljeä voivat hyvin, samoin kuin emä. Päivä on ollut erittäin pitkä meille kaikille. luulen, että kuolleella pennulla oli osuutta harvakseltaan syntyviin pentuihin; jouduimme odottamaan aina seuraavaa pentua tosi pitkään. Tytti on hieno äiti - niin kärsivällinen ja urhea. Tytin omistajalle Tarjalle kiitos siitä, että Tytti on niin hyvässä kunnossa, että se on jaksanut hyvin tämän pitkän synnytyksen. Terveiset ja kiitokset molemmille isäkandidaateille Mosekselle ja Ruffelle!

03.02. We had a lovely trip to Estonian Setter Club Show today. The judge was Kickie Boman from Åland island. I have to admit that our day was just perfect:

Thank you so much for the show organizer Eesti Setterite Klubi, judge Kickie Boman, handlers Lena, Marika, Aivi, Sanna, Minna, Kätlin and Kaisa (I hope I didn't forget anyone), "bearers" Tommi, Kiia, Tomi and Tuula, "rescuer and quide" Andrus, and the whole travel companion. You made my day! Congratulations to all Nattaset owners  and Ada's owners Tommi and Kiia for the great success!

   
26.01. Updated Tytti's photo page and show results. Updated also Nekku's, Oona Venla, Lupu, Lilli and Ines show results pages with the judging reports.
   
23.01. Spice (Nattaset Special Spice), Annu (Nattaset Blue Vicki Vale) and their new "little sister" Cocker Spaniel Nyyti (Cloudberry) have got a new lovely home page - Congratulations Minna! The address is: www.elisanet.fi/minna_toivola
   
20.01. We had a lovely hunting day with Oona. Photos klick here.

In the evening we got very nice guests: Lupu (Nattaset Bluebell) and Venla (Nattaset Arctic Bramble)  with their families. I trimmed Lupu, Venla and Aada (Gordon Setter) - here are some pictures taken after the trimming. Klick the picture to enlarge it.

   
15.01.

Great news! Tytti is in whelp - we saw at least 6 puppies. The puppies are due in mid-February. The puppies and all three parents will be DNA tested after the puppies are micro chipped to make sure who is the sire. There can be puppies even from both males ;-) Photos below: Tytti, Ruffe and Moses.

Hienoja uutisia! Tytti on kantavana - näimme ainakin 6 pentua ultrassa. Pentujen pitäisi syntyä helmikuun puolessa välissä. Pennut ja vanhemmat DNA -testataan pentujen sirutuksen jälkeen, että tiedämme kuka niiden isä on. Pentuja voi olla jopa molemmista uroksista ;-) Kuvat alla: Tytti, Ruffe ja Moses.

   

13.01.

Back to the normal life ;-) On Monday Tytti (Nattaset Moon Sonata) will be ultra scanned and we will see if she is in whelp - please, keep your fingers crossed ;-)
   
 07.01. We visited Kajaani Int Ch Show on Saturday; English Setters were judged by Lydia Erhart, from Netherlands. It was a very interesting show and I have to say that some local hunting men were not behaving very gentleman-like. One field type English Setter breeder yelled us in the ring: "why you bring the FUCKING PONIES here"... I forgot to ask him if he meant that our setters were too small of big (Ines is about 58 cm)! His friend (who by the way carried the "clerk" label and vest) told us that our show results will be cancelled, because our "fucking pony" was entered into the working class. Maybe I should make a very special "My little pony" page for Ines ;-)

But anyway, we got very nice results:
