Today we had the most famous dog show in Finland - Winner Show 2021 with Crufts qualification. We had high hopes when we entered our dogs under Eddie Patterson from Ireland. One week before the show there was a change of the judge into Pirjo Aaltonen from Finland. We decited to try her because we entered our dogs also for Helsinki Winner-21 on Saturday and we have also booked hotel rooms for two nights.
I felt so terribly sad when I saw the "judging line" of the judge. I have to admit that our dogs were not as trained and well behaving than the others – but if it is ok for the judge that an ENGLISH Setters (even bitches) have gay tails all the time -  I keep voting with my feet even more in the future! Our dogs got the very last places in every classes and our juniors were the only dogs (from 17 ESs) who got very good:

  • Nattaset Norman The Ringmaster "Kelmi" junior clas 2nd, very good
  • Nattaset Hilipan-Pippa "Pippa" junior class 2nd, very good
  • Nattaset True Spring "Irma", open class 3rd, excellent
  • Seaset Storm Rider For Nattaset "Frankie", open class 3rd, excellent


Today at Helsinki Winner ch show, judge Eva Nielsen, Sweden

  • Nattaset Norman The Ringmaster "Kelmi" junior clas 2nd, excellent
  • Nattaset Hilipan-Pippa "Pippa" junior class 2nd, excellent
  • Nattaset True Spring "Irma", open class 2nd, excellent

Well done Jaana and Miikku! Thank you for all the help Katja, Mari, Anu, Mirva & Pilvi!


We had a lovely Nattaset "pre-X-mas" party today!


My little helpers Irma & Jawa in "home office" :-)


As a breeder I share the happiness and sadness with my Nattaset family.
Today we had to say good bye to the most gentle, handsome and beloved gentleman Winny, who was a great show and family dog - and everybody's friend.
I had a big honour to walk Winny over the rainbow bridge with his owner Satu. I hope I could give some solace and support to Winny's owners. My thought are with them!
Here are some lovely memories of Winny, Int ShCH, Lv & Est Ch, Lv & Lt JCh Nattaset Arctic Night. His lovely temparement and beauty still lives in his daughters, sons, grand and great grand children.

Happy 11 years birthday to Nattaset "Arctic" puppies (sired by Multi ShCh Wansleydale Orszak Prince "Johny" and out of Nattaset Arctic Bramble "Venla")! Some of them have already crossed the Raibow Bridge but the rest of them are still giving a lot of happiness and joy to their families.


Happy 12 years birthday to all "Dancer" puppies who are still alive and those who have crossed the rainbow bridge already! <3


Guess who is going to take part first time in veteran class (after 3 years show brake) at Eckerö show?!? Yes, you are right, Riesa (Lv & Est & Dutch ShCh, Benelux Winner-18, SW-16, JWW-14, Lv JCh White Lily Lofty), isn't she really beautiful? The coat needs still some more preparation.

11.07. The very first Nattaset English Setter puppies were born 23 years ago (11.7.1998). How I love this breed! <3

It has veen a very hot Summer in Finland! We have spent lovely days at our friend's summer house. The dogs love to run free in the fenced yeard and watch birds. But sometimes they just relax on the dock.


Happy three years birthday Jawa & her sisters and brothers! Jawa and irma were celebrating home. :-)


We spent a lovely time by Kickie and her lovely dogs at Åland islands. May I introduce you the most sweet and beautiful "Olivia" Nattaset True Silk, who is 4 years and 3 months in this picture.

Today with our three juniors and Irma's daughter at the unofficial Setter and Pointer show for youngsters, judge Jussi Liimatainen.

16.06.   Happy birthday to all three Nattaset "Batman" puppies over the rainbow bridge!

Last but not least on my grooming table of Nattaset "Circus" litter. This young girl (10 months) is also going to take part to her very first show next Saturday. May I introduce you Nattaset Taiga The Lion Queen "Taiga", proudly owned by Panja Pesonen.

Sometimes the great plans just flame out - like our puppy plans for Helmi and Nuutti. Instead of puppies Helmi got pyoma and we decited to sterilize her to make sure that she will recover totally. So there won't be any Nattaset puppies in 2021.


We got a lovely visitor "Duracell-Nanna" Farthingale Spring Song. :-) She will stay with us about one week! <3


We celebrated my birthday at Sudenkuoppa dog park. Thank you all for the lovely time together and also for the great birthday gifts!

17.05.   Ultra scanning of Helmi... Unfortunately no puppies were found.

Today we met Irma's lovely 4,5 months old daughter "Nanna" Farthingale Spring Song.
