Again travelling with doggies and friends, this time to Szentlélek. The place is beautiful, but I do not offer to anybody to visit the Turistapark there, the owner was hostile,
we were more time asked "not to create programs" - WTF! - there, to be silent, we even should have asked for a permission to turn off the light (really!). My photos.
18. August 2012

How nice to have summer in a herding camp with own bred dogs and non-own bred owners! Eating, drinking, some herding, walking etc... So nice! This time in Portelek, at the ranch of the Szarvas family.
I have the most wonderful grandchildren, I took many photos, see bellow.
. Herding camp portraits and standard, herding camp Saturday, herding camp Sunday, herding camp Monday, herding camp Tuesday
Oh, oh, I do not refresh! So sorry! Of course, many things to share have happened... I only can hope that I do not forget something important. For example the D's are 5 months old:
We walked every week some times, as always, that's not a news (you can follow us on Facebook).
On 6. August 2012 Bordermania Be Just, Kayla gained the title multichampion. Congrats Martina!

I have had some problems with refreshing our website: our computer crashed, also the server (not at the same time of course), so now here are the news of the last month.
We spent the weekend in Bakonybél with many Bordermania dogs and owners,there were some hours when we had 20 dogs around us! Beside my dogs there were 2 A'a, 2 B's,
6 C's (including Vixen) and 5 D's, awsome! Thank you everybody for coming. Éve has organized the place and Móni Boros-Oláh showed us the Csillagda.

15-19. June 2012
Our last puppy, Dragon, now called Danny moved to Finnland, and is owned and co-owned by Sari Solanti (kennel Pikkupaimenen) and Mirva Maanselka and her husband Leevi.
I had the opportunityto travel with Danny and spend 3 perfect days in this awsome country, which is full of lakes, forests, adventures and good people. :-)
On Friday night we travelled with Mirva and Leevi from Helsinki to Palokka to meet Sari and show her the new puppy. Next day Katja came and took me to an agility event, which was huge!
So many dogs doing this sport, unbeliievable! Later we went for a walk and visited Marjo and kennel Amazeme and pups. Had dinner with Anne and Minna, and after that travelled
to Lappeenrampa, where the Finnish club show was organized (in pooring rain). In the evening way to Katja's place near Oulu. On Monday we visited Oulu and the beach,
and next morning I had to travel home. Unfortunately...
Thank you so much Sari and Katja for your invitation!!!

Enikő was at us with Nessie, who is beautiful and sweet in my opinion - what else do you expect from a grandma like me?
1. June 2012
We visited the Szarvas-ranch near Portelek. A good place for dog owners: you have the opportunity to herd sheep, to do agility or just to enjoy the landscape with your dog.
Big thanks for the Szarvas family for the inviting!
28. May 2012
I may look for an owner for our 11 weeks old Ddraig Goch. He has an outstanding conformation and movement and a sweet, friendly temperament. The ideal owner will work with him
(doing one or mind type of sports) and also show him regularly.
19-20. May 2012

22. January 2012
Actually, we can call it birtday walking, because our A litter will be 3 years old on Tuesday. Unfortunately the weather was so dark when everybody arrived,
that there is no photo of the real walking, but I've been waiting for the others hald an hour long, and took photos of my own pack. Photos

6. December 2011
I took my dogs and made an excursionwith them to the Kevély. Some nice pics we have.
2011. november 26.
We took part of the final part of the NextDog Top Model competition - the winners are Hajni with Borsi (Bordermania Aurora Borealis)!
You could find at this pleasure-ground everything that could be frightening for a dog: strange people, strong lights, incredibly sound, hot, owners upset, televison
- but all of the 14 dogs did a great job. and among them, our girl was the best! It wasn't a real beauty competition! They were looking for dogs who can work
under every circumstances, who have learnt many tricks and are very well handled by the owner, and so, are "all-purpose" dogs: for photos, adverts, films etc..
My good friend, Erika says it was like a very extreme character test. Borsi won a cover photo on a Hungarian dog magazine, a professional photoshooting and many other valuable gifts.
2011. november 26.
Milo BOS puppy at the Danish club show, Felicia his owner was very proud of him. We are also proud!
2011. november 12.
Martina with Kayla (B. Be Just) did a great job: passed the herding test in Italy! Congratulations, Martina!
9. November 2011
Hey, good news! Hajni with Borsi are finalists in the Next Top Modell competition! Well done girls!
Do not misunderstand: it's all about the dogs, how well socialized they are, what tricks they know, if they are secure to strange noises, circumstances, people. Borsi is one of the best 10. :-)
4. and 6. November 2011
Herning Int. Show (Denmark): Milo (Bordermania Can't Pretend) best puppy on both days! The judge told how great temperament that little fellow had. :-)
29. October-1. November 2011
What a wonderful long weekend in Bükkszentkereszt. But how is it possible that these four days has disappeared like a moment? The album is here
Sport results in October (woohoo!)
What could I say? A border collie is a border collie, and if it has a hard-working owner, together they can reach the sky. Bragging, in more lines. :-)))
Alexa withMadlen (B. Aurora Polaris) had their 3. clean agility run, and now they are in level A2.
Julcsi with Bonnie (B. Bewitching You) in K99 system skillfulness level 5 100/94 points. This was the highest level on that special day. Bonnie is just over 1,5 years old, Julcsi 15.
Orsi with Josephine - they didn't have a special exam (yet), but they are so promising together in dog dancing! What do you think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyvncdsX11s
And last but not least Hajni is doing such things with Borsi:
It's already October...
And I forget to refresh the site, although we have a lot of events every week. Fool me.
This weekend (1. October) after the nursery school with Vixen we visited with Ildi, Árpi, Csilla and dogs the ruins with Klára Salamon
(she does search and rescue with her dogs on a high level). Pics here
On 25. September we were at IHA Tulln, with not the best results, but it was interesting. Skye excellent (open class, she is still out of coat),
Forest res.CAC (champion class). Pics.
Before that Finn had in agility class A2 his first clean run :-), and he was also the fastest (in the video there are the other two "D" runs):
1-4. September 2011
We spent a long weekend at the lake Rakaca. The weather was perfect, and the circumstances much better then we are used to: we also had a swimming pool and a jakuzzi to enjoy our time!
The dogs could swimm in the lake, and they liked it very much. We visited the monastery at Martonyi, the castle Szád (early in the morning), the Rákóczi cave and the lost village Derenk.
It's worth to visit this region of Hungary, beautiful landscape and not at all too many people. Pics here.
20-28. August 2011
Our yearly herding camp in Rákóczifalva. The weather was very hot, almost 40 degrees, we slept in tents, which was uncomfortable, there were many mosquitos,
we were - how to tell it - smelly because of the hot and running after (or in front of) the sheep... You can understand how much we suffer from the whole situation here...
We would like to come back next year, because suffering makes fun. Pics here.
6-8. August 2011 (mainly 7.)
You can say we are not copletely normal, but we - Emese, Csilla, Bossi and me - travelled to Germany for a show and an interesting judge. I do not recommend you
to travel to Mannheim with dogs, people doesnÍt like them (bunnies and parrots are allowed to runand fly free in the parks - dogs not), but Heidelberg is a beautiful little city.
Ludwigshafen CACIB (judge: Helena Fitzgerald): Forest open class res.CAC, Joker (intermedia) vg 3. Pics of the show here.

Wonderful Saturday! On Friday Milo's new owner, Felicia arrived from Denmark, together with Laura, Chili's (B. Breaking Dawn) owner. Thank you so much Laura for coming!
I invited them and the owners of our A's, B's and also C's to the sheep, and we spent a hot but lovely day in Rákóczifalva. It's a really long way, so I was very grateful to all people who were there!

Éva and Indy finished there skillfullness 5. level exam in K99! Congratulations! I took some pics, but somehow deleted them later. :-(((
We started to learn agility with Rosie, Skye and Glen, it's funny. Rosie is so happy, she just has to run and jump and listen to her handler (our trainer borrowed her - thank you Bori!) to get ball and titbits.
This is something for her! On the 2. pic: Girls are wiating for me after dog school and puppy class. And a short video of the end of the first training.
18. October 2010
Laura sent some beautiful pics of Chili (B. Breaking Dawn) from Denmark, I'm so happy with them.
She is maturing well, turning into a nice and really hairy lady. They've started dog school and trainings for doing later agility.
October 2010 (the last two weeks)
We walked a lot, made a trip to the Pilis, and enjoyed the good wheather.
I would like to show now Hajnika and Borsi (B. Aurora Borealis), who are really awsome together in dog frisbee.
On this video they practice how to jump on Hajni's sole, then, one day later again. The are really unvelievable, aren't they? And some more shots taken by me:

On the same day Emese and Finn at the agility exam had clear run and got 2. place! Congratulations!
We travelled again to Laci Romhányi, to Rákóczifalva for 4 days. Laci must have been really happy with so many dogs, tents and noisy guests...
It was a perfect long weekend as you can see on my pics: with herding seminar, herding grey cattles, photo shooting, fighting, eating, sleeping, being excellent dirty, travelling and so on...
So sad at home again. :-( The rest of my pics are here, many

28. July-1. August 2010
A long time without any news...
We had a beautiful weekend in Rákóczifalva for four days, with herding, sleeping, eating (and drinking) a lot, playing with the dogs.
I want to say a big 'thank you' to Laci, who is the official guard at the Tisza dam in Rákóczifalva, who helped us soooo much, gave caffee, place to camp, and was absolutelly friendly and patient.
I have many-many new pics here, and some more here
11. July 2010
Rákóczifalva again... In this summer this is our vaccation. With Éva, Vica, Ati, Zoli. Standing up very early in the morning, hot, smell of the sheep... Was nice, as always!
My two favorite pics: Rosie with two of her sons, Indy and Chili, and Glen enjoying running in the mud. We have more pics, but we had to borrow Ati's photomaschine, ours went wrong. :-(
Glen again... She is my little puppy,beautiful, very clever, loves people and dogs, ready to learn... I want her the best, this is the reason why I'm looking for a good co-owner for her.
I have 4 dogs at home, and try to give them the care and love they need, and I'm afraid one more border collie would be too much.
3. July 2010
Herding in Rákóczifalva. Our photomashine went wrong in the last minute, so a pic made by Zoli (thanks!): Bonnie, Monty, Chili, Joker, Indy, Borsi, Aya, Forest, Glen, Nevis, Moritz, Rosie, Skye, Finn, Nidhogg.
My pics are here. And here is a video of Chili, who got his herding instinct test on Sunday!
