Ressy turned out to be a very active and cheerful puppy. With the arrival of new dogs, she has maintained her superior position in the pack. She teaches newcomers how to behave and brings up the young.
She is often deep in thoughts as if meditating. Her colour is wonderfully chocolate of all shades: from milky to bitter. She is cute like a teddy-bear.
Alice is big, she looks like a sheep dog. Her coat is light-brown and very thick, that’s why she likes to sleep on the balcony even in winter. Due to her size she’s got one more name, Bear. Normally, she is calm and reserved, even shy. When you come up to pat her, she seems embarrassed as though she doesn’t deserve the kindness.
Martha is a keen licker. She will lick your face and hands self-indulgently. Unfortunately, her health has been affected by her first severe winter spent outdoors: she suffers from rheumatism, especially in wet weather. On those days she becomes lame and cries in pain. and spends most of the time on a soft sofa or bedding.
Her most favourite activity is running in the field. She is quick and agile and is never tired. When she is running her legs don’t seem to be touching the ground, as if she is flying in the air.
During the following weeks she could hardly move. But she turned out to be patient and had good stamina. She has got over it and now runs well with the others, although she is a bit lame and her tail has healed at a right angle.
Dasha is not big. She is white with light-brown patches. She always has a sweetly expression on her muzzle, the tail is curled on her back. The fur on the neck bristles like a соllar.
She is quick like a flash of lightning to attack everybody who tries to steal something from her bowl. She is black with a white shirtfront.
In spite of his scary looks he is very kind and likes hugging. When Gerda and Odin were small, he took care of the puppies comforting them at night.
Gerda looks like a small Yeti. Her coat is thick with long hair, which keeps her warm even in severe frost. She isn’t very sociable and prefers to spend time under the house where she buries bones.
He has nice languid eyes, like a cow. That’s why we sometimes call him Calf or Odin-the-Donkey for his peculiar roar.
Barsik is delicate by nature, he is sincere and cheerful. For his eloquent eyes and white mane he got a nickname Khvorostovsky.
Nyura is short, with enormous eyes and protruding ears. When she is not barking, she looks like a house-elf.
"Walk!" And then he is one of the first to run up to the gates.
Polkan looks like a shepherd, he is well-built and strong. After eating he always comes to thank.
She is thin, with pointed nose and very loving. As soon as you sit down, here she is curling up at your side. She grins funnily when she is embarrassed and likes coming secretly to the garden and sleep among our zucchini.
Now Valentina is even taller than our "cow" Bella. Though, perhaps, she is still the silliest of all our dogs.
And one more thing - he always smiles.
