Last weekend I went to a field trial for bird hunting dogs (it is not me in the photo). My dog, an irish setter, didn’t get any prize, and only two of the 14 dogs did get a prize. But we had a most lovely day in the mountains. A nine hours walk waching the dogs doing their work, that is searching for birds, for the scandinavian grouse, two and two dogs at a time. The rules for a trial like this is according to the The Norwegian Kennel Club, the largest canine organization in Norway.
There were still a lot of cloudberries in the mountains, but nobody had time to pick them to take home, but some was eaten.
