Today the last puppie has left our home! It was miss White, Tskekone Ridge "Corinne" who moved to her new owner Birgitta Frimodig in Strängnäs. We will also wish them the best of luck! Now we only have our own four little "terrorists" left and it will be a lot of work with them:-)
It has been a lot of puppies moving in and out of here! Last thuesdag we went to Hedemora to get our puppies from kennel Great after our "Gaston" and Ksena. They are called Lenskij and Taiga. The puppie pack are now refilled again!
Yesterdag miss green "Ice" and miss pink/green "Zoey" moved to their new familys. They have moved to the Hamrén and the Näsman family in Kungsängen. It feels great to have two puppies near by and we wish all of them the best of luck!!
These great pictures has been sent to us by "Cindies" mom, Josefine. Thank you for these great pictures!
Some of the puppies have now moved to their new homes! Yesterday miss Apricot "Cindie" went to Luleå with her new mom Josefin Andersson. Later that day also miss Red "Naali" moved. She went to Särna to live with Cassamira's Titan Av Saturnus "Nansen" and the rest of the pack of hunting dogs and of course their owners Nathalie and Samuel.
Today miss Pink "Kena" flew together with her new mom Arnhild to Norway and the rest of the Sugustad family in Trondheim.
We whish all of the new owners best of luck with their new familymembers!
Later this week the rest of the puppie pack will move to their new homes, except for Storm and Lava who stays with us.

Thank you all for a very pleasant day!!
A happy Celsius!
We are planning a samoyed litter! See more -->>
We are back home again after an enjoyable and eventful week in Särna at Polar Distans.
Our goal this season has been to complete the whole PD 160 and preferrably with all the eight dogs participating from the start. It feels very rewarding to have completed that goal and to see that the dogs were so fit during the whole distance.
The start this Tuesday!
The weather has been changing a lot, from hard winds to sunny skies, but the dogs have all been doing their very best during the whole race. Gaston and Amalthea have really fulfilled their duty as lead dogs, and without losing their focus they have led the the team the whole way.
Happy daddy and dogs after finishing the race this Wednesday!
It has been extra enjoyable to observe that four samoyed teams both started in and completed the race. CONGRATULATIONS to all of you and especially to Morten Hölland who took the silver only 31 minutes after the winner! See the complete results at www.polardistans.com.
Morten Hölland's start!

When Chrille had started I had the pleasure of helping out as a functionary and this is something that I really can recommend everybody to try. Especially if you are thinking about starting in the race it is a great opportunity to learn more. There is also a chance of meeting dogs and mushers from different nations.
BIG THANKS to the organizers, SPHK Västra, who have done an amazing job to be able to pull off the PD this year as well and that despite a VERY LOW number of functionaries!
After a few hectic days in Furudal we are back home again. We had to shovel a lot of snow when we arrived last night but that bodes well for the training to come! We have had very pleasant days together with dear friends and big thanks to Kjell Jonsson who has worked hard with the trails (this year as well) as much more snow than we had ordered arrived Thursday night! Thanks also to all the rest of you who have been working hard for making this year's "samoyed week" as pleasurable as always!
On Friday the weather was cold and beatiful, but judges Jan-Åke Stäv and Jesper Andersson did a great job and judged around 90 dogs during the day. "Peak" and "Chiyo" were exhibited in working class. Peak was judged very good and Chiyo excellent and CK. Chiyo finished 3rd in the competition class. "Nansen" was also exhibited, with the judgement "excellent".
THANK YOU Helene and Emelie for handling!

The annual race, this year named "Ore-draget", took place on Saturday and Sunday. 6 dogteams started in the 6-dog-team class, 13 teams in the 4-dog-team class and 12 participants in Nordic class and line. This year all the Nordic countries were represented in the sled dog classes!
Samuel and Nansen started in the Nordic 1-dog-team class and finished in a 3rd position!
Ole and Amber started in the class for line. They weren't the fastest team on the trail but instead they recieved an honorable last place-award for using the trails thoroghly!
Chrille started in the 6-dog-team class and was able to defend last year's gold medal, immediately followed by Diana Karlsson. The bronze went to Elisabeth Hölland from Norway. In the team Chrille had: Gaston, Peak, Celsius, Ksena, Mimas and Little Rocky's Queen Bella Donna, owned by Marie-Louise Lakjer. Celsius and Peak recieved "the swedish working test 2" each and by that they get the working title PDP!
At the start the second day!!
Congratulations to Fredrik Petri who also defended his gold medal and won without any competition in the 4-dog-team! Kristin Nörve from Norway took the silvermëdal and the bronze went to Finland and Ari Tolonen.

This weekend we participated in SPHK Mälardalen's KM in Hamra. The organizers had worked hard for many hours with the trails which resulted in great achievements! Thank you everybody for a very nice weekend and CONGRATULATIONS to all the Club Masters.
Chrille ran 2 x 30 kms in the total time of 5 hrs ands 21 mns. Unfortunately he was all alone in the sled dog class at that distance.

Celsius, Peak and Ksenia each received "the swedish working test B". Ksena was thereby awarded the working title PDP!
The day after the races was bright with sunshine. We decided to take a run in the 12 km trail in the sun. It had been a bit colder during the night so now the trails were perfect!

Here we are training at full force for the Polar Distans. We have had really good conditions here at home during the winter, but that is over now. Now it is all ice on the ground, as usual at this time of year.
Because of that Chrille and the samoyeds have been in Ryssjön this weekend and trained in the very fine trails available there.
Gason och Amalthea leading the team.
We have borrowed the capable "Ksena" from Kennel Great this season as well!
Next weekend is the KM in Hamra. We hope for great trails and look forward to meeting friends.
