The kennel building (a converted garage) and garden are now just about as I envisioned them when I bought this place in November 2010. Things are coming together nicely, and I´m quite happy with the result!

Kennelbygningen (den konverterte garasjen) og hagen er nå blitt omtrent som jeg hadde forestilt med dem da jeg kjøpte dette stedet i november 2010. Ting begynner å ta form, og jeg er ganske fornøyd med resultatet!

Is this becoming our aesthetic ideal?

We´ve all been witness to ever-younger Scotties winning best of breed, groups and even winning places in BIS-finals of late. 

What´s happening? Is all the older, more mature, competition crap? Are Scotties in general maturing more quickly than before? Or has the aesthetic ideal amongst our judging corps shifted - away from the breed standard - to a new, fresh approach?

I´ll grant you that bitches often mature sooner than boys, but I think this new trend of putting up (barely more than) pre-teens everywhere is scary. I don´t like it at all and I doubt if it can be for the breed´s best.

What do you think?
