For me (Karin) dogs have always been a hobby and a part of my life. When I grow up there was a poodle and later on a labrador in the family. When I was 14 I spend the summer at a kennel that, among other, bred bearded collies and I knew from then that this was my breed. I fell in love with their lovely temperament; always happy, alert, friendly, clever, and their joy of living.
 
I became a member of the Swedish Bearded Collie Club and started to follow the breed, but it took several years before I had the time, place, and enough knowledge to by my own beardie. In 1994 I bought Simson (Alistair’s Home Run). Four years later I got my first beardie bitch Lucky (Lp1 Alistair’s Blue Nahema), also she from kennel Alistair’s.
 

 In the summer of 2002 we moved to our house on the countryside and one week later our first beagle Guinness (Champhurst Forgotten Dreams) moved in with us. After that two bitches have joined our pack; the beardie Nova (CH Lärkängen’s Now and Forever) and the beagle Stina (McHaire All Over). Besides our own dogs we are both active in other dog related activities. Karin is a ring steward,  member of the Section for activities and for breeding, respectively, in the Bearded Collie Club. Leif is the treasurer in the local Beagle Club. 

 

Our dogs are first of all highly praised members of our family! Except for the physical exercise they are activated in showing, obedience, blood tracking, and hare hunting (Guinness) and occasionally they are practicing agility and herding (the beardies).

 
Besides our own dogs we are active in other dog related activities. Karin is a ring steward, secretary in the local Kennel Club, and a member of the Section for activities in the Bearded Collie Club. Leif is the treasurer in the local Beagle Club and a member of the Section for breeding as well as the Section for activities in the Bearded Collie Club.
 
We both work as scientists, Karin at the university in Linköping and Leif at the Swedish Defence Research Agency.
