and they need one of your labs at home badly, Mats... they have three dogs at the grandmother's (a Westie, a Labrador - her name is Kika and you guessed it she's my favorite, and a lovely mongrel) but it's not the same, you know. We decided to let the dogs into our house once we finish construction which is not going to be for another year and a half. I think it makes no sense to keep a dog in an apartment no matter how big the place is...
u have a happy pair too. just acquired one last year, soon another nt.

I'm becoming confused,Doc.......do they have names?

The old one is named after Karl XII's dog, Pompe, our great King ( 1682-1718 ) who was in Moscow already 1708 ! Pompe is buried among the war other heroes, with his own grave stone, at Karbergs War Churyard, in Stockholm, with a wonderful poem on the stone (!). I have two replicas of Karl XII, the two most famous paintings, first the young King who at 18 years of age, went to war for the rest of his life and the other when he was dead, killed in Norway of all countries.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_XII Perhaps interesting is that these paintings were made by one of Russia's most wellknowned painters, on my friends and mine whishes and smuggled out from Russia, it was before before Glasnost! Oh my God what trouble and how fun we had The other younger dog is named after my hero number one Winston, no further explantion is neccesary, even though they don't have any physical resemblance Cheers Doc
