Again, we took of a beautiful frosty weekend for hiking - Saturday we went to the Slovak Paradise - which is beautiful in every season. In winter, it has incredibly fabulous magic, what do you can see for yourself in our photoreport, or even better - in the documentary video. Sunday was marked in more competitive spirit - by attending another dogtrekking we completed our 2010 season and already looking forward to the next :)

This weekend it was snowing for the first time this year! Jaška was - as always - excited: "Snow is delicious, soft to run, it holds the smells good, and it is coooold" :O) We made the trip to Jánošíkova bašta near our city. Some nice photos you can find here. Friday, I managed to capture the autumn weather and I caught some photos of Yaschka playing in your garden, just for pleasure:

After a tough week must be given a weekend relaxation in nature.  Although we have done so - Saturday we visited Silicka plateau (again in Slovak Karst). Photoreport you can see here. Sunday was marked by an family trip - with my parents and brother we went to Skároš (village 20 km from Kosice, near the border with Hungary) In addition, there you will find a park with the military techniques - for example - Russian T34 tank. We made a barbecue, visited the Hungarian border and enjoyed a wonderful warm autumn day. I placed a couple of nice photos here:

This autumn is exceptional for its wonderful weather. This is exactly autumn what I love. Every day we can do something exciting. But at the weekends, we can manage much more! At Saturday we and our friend Federika with her springer spaniel Ron made a super trip to to the hills near our city, which finally ended adventurous (we have lost...) But finally, we found ourselves again and although the trip was slightly prolonged (from 15 km to 18 km) :D

Sunday was a special day! Day to be long remembered. We attended the "collie owners meeting" - we have accepted the invitation of Stanislava (Zelené Tuje kennel) and Michaela (Amnis Rhei kennel) and their families. In addition to excellent entertainment prepared for us - we spent a great time on trip in the West Tatras. Photos you can find in section gallery/Hiking in Tatras.

Yesterday died the most famous blue-merle stud dog in French history - the grandfather of Yaschka - ICh Narwick Silver Blue de Cathyja in his age of nearly 14 years. In my eyes he was the legendary dog, which has moved breeding of blue-merle collies mile leap forward. Im very proud, that our Yaschka has him in her pedigree so his legend lives on - in all of his offsprings...The photo of Narwick /photo: de Cathyja/ & the new photo of Yaschka /by Juraj Pivka/.

Both days, we pulled a new fence on cottage and Yaschka, of course, actively assisted in each activity :) Sunday we attended on the another mini-dogtrekking. The route was really great and except of nice prices, we brought home also special a bonus - the coat full of little thistles (Agrimony thistles) So, as our master said: "Agrimonia Yaschkatoria" (paraphrase to Agrimonia eupatoria) :D Some nice photos:

The weather was fine, and there was also a brook near our route, so Yaschka could have her favourite bath :) On the "Morské Oko" we grilled a knackwurst and then, after the arrival to the village, we made a barbecue on our garden. Yum-yum ;) Some nice photos here:

We had a great weekend. At Saturday we took part on the "Havinošľap 2010" dogtrekking. Together with Peter Suvák with his smoothie Bryš and our friend Juraj Pivka we passed the MINI track - 25 km. We were little afraid of tropical heat, but the track was routed almost all in the forest and there were also a many brooks - to cool us all. So the dogs managed it very well. Yaschka was very happy. I have added some nice photos from Juraj to gallery/our activities/dogtrekking (last 5 photos). Also see one nice tourist portrait below.


At Sunday we spent a nice day at Polish dog show in Nowy Sącz. I was handling our collie friend "Luiggi" - we succeed, and Luiggi finished his Polish juniorchampion title ;) Yaschka was of course with us as an non-competitive accompanist - and she enjoyed it really very much.

Hello! Spring is comming so we are beginning to train obedience and tracking more. Yaschka had been a little sick for the last two weeks, because she was attacked by one "nice" American PitBull Terrier...but luckily, thanks to her heavy coat and my swift reaction it came out well. So, her injury is now recovered and Yaschka is enjoying a fragrant spring in the garden ;)

Today we attedded with Yaschka the first this year's dogtrekking. Specifically, this was only a small, calorifacient mini-dogtrekking length of 10 km – the first of a mini-dogtrekking series called „Following the footsteps of White fang". We recognised, that Yaschka is good puller on the harness / she have latent potential :). We were suprised, because she don´t used to pulling on the slip. But this was special situation, she was on the harness and when she saw the dogs before her on the track, she was sooo excited to overrun them :) It was a great day.


22.02.2010 -

Yaschka have wonderful new photos in her age of 35 months. Photos made by our friend Juraj Pivka. Thank you ! You can find them in her actual gallery. We have also tried coursing - an unique event of its kind held in our town - Košice. It was a great day, Yaschka like it very much, but it was a little bit funny, because only who was running behind the polythene bunch was me...and Yaschka was running only behind me :D Well, collies are shepherd dog, not a hunter :D


09.02.2010 -

Last Saturday was on our dog school a little club competition. Yaschka obtained in obedience and in dogdancing. It was heavily snowing, I could not to make a photos but - for memory I has done one - Yaschka with her prices. This weekend we have made a wonderfuk trip to Czech town Brno. You can find photos here.

We are great, indeed winter is here! We moved tiny bit, so if you'll see a gate-house without a bell and somebody will fearfully barking beyond it, you are right at our place :) We add one nice picture, which definitely exact our Yaschka :) More photos you can find in her actual gallery.



01.01.2010 -

We wish you all the best in New Year 2010 - especially lot of health and joy, may all your dreams and resolution come true. We made with our friend Peter Suvák and his smoothie Bryš a nice hike on the New Year's day on the Jahodná Bank (23,5 km). It was great, also even though my shoes was dripping wet, because of very humid weather. But never mind, we enjoyed it totally and Yaschka was absolutely happy - she was in her element - she was smiling from ear to ear. The New Year's we spend with home, on the sofa, eating, watching tv and relaxing :)
