Rakki The Famous

Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

On Thursday I got a phone call from Animal Planet, asking if they could use a picture of one of my Vallhunds for a viewer poll on their website during the Eukanuba National Championship. So I said “sure, pick whichever one you like” (what, was I gonna say no?), and here’s Rakki at bottom right (relaxing on the deck at the cottage, looking stoned). His non-Amanda-website Intarweb debut lasted for as long as the herding group was on (Ingrid Low’s lovely CH Aros Brave Brewster won breed):

So what did people learn from this picture of Rakki, representing his ancient, rare and noble breed to American viewers? Dude…wait…what? Vallhunds reprazent!

Snow Dogs

It snowed on my birthday celebration weekend (woo! Snow! Living with proper weather again!). Jennifer was here with the setters. Crazy runarounds (and therefore pictures) ensued!

Yet More Dogs

The Irish setters invaded again, and I have yet more crazy dog lady pictures to show for it.

Danger Due To Maniac (Dogs)

Saturday, August 18th, 2007

Vallhunds play hard. I don’t say that lightly. It looks horrifying and sounds even worse. Their idea of fun is to run around, crash into each other, growl as loudly as they can while they snap their teeth and snort at each other, bite each others legs and wrestle like they’re on some kind of Ultimate Fighting show.
This is a promo shot from our horror movie “VALLHUND!” (the sequel to the movie “ROTTWEILER!”). Vallhunds have big teeth and apparently can suck their ears into their heads for safety:



More Irish Setter Invasion II

Here is Cillian looking handsome, with Sully and the terror in the background:



Irish Setter Invasion II: Attack of the Nina

Saturday, August 18th, 2007

The Irish Setters invaded again last weekend. Cillian was horrified by Nina, he’d play with her and then suddenly realize that she was small…then he’d react like a person with a leech or an Asian Giant Hornet on them (“is it on me?! IS IT ON ME??!! GET IT OFF ME!!!!”).

Sully, Cillian and Nina (hopefully you’ll know which is which):


Irish Setter Invasion

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

My sister Jennifer was here for a visit (where “visit” = “help us paint, or else”) with her two Irish Setters Sullivan and Cillian (or “Skillian” when you get confused about which one you need to tell to stop doing that, although when it doubt, it’s Cillian). Since Sullivan, Cillian and Rakki are best buddies, non-stop playing and hijinks ensued.

Everybody loves Sully (or at least the stick Sully has):

Everybody Loves Sully
