New Norwegian record

2011 was an excellent Scottie year in Norway. No less than seven litters altogether produced a total of 31 puppies. I think this is a new record! Well done to Marianne Wessel, Liv Lunder, Milena Buranello, Gerd & Jarl Anthonisen, Marius Kjos & Rolf Dahl and Guri Aalerud. If we keep this up we might well soon over take our "big-brother" neighbour in the east (the Swedes) in the not too distant future!

This painting, Brudeferden i Hardanger (The bridal voyage on the Hardanger fjord), is one of the best known paintings from the National Romantic period in Norwegian art. It is often re-enacted with live actors; in fact some people still get married this way! It was painted by Adolph Tidemand and Hans Gude.
