Our other animals
||Vanity Amiable Naima|
||Vanity X’traordinary Me (Tova)|
||Gitte H. Sørensen and Hallgeir Bergh with Kennel Vanity.|
Since august 2004 Naima has been a loved and important part of our lives. She's a perfect family-dog: kind, friendly, an easy learner, obedient (almost), mild, and with a sense of humor. the latter being important to feel comfortable at ours;-)
We got to name her ourselves, as long as it started with an A. Ingunn, having read her portion of Jane Austen had a hung up on the word amiable, the sound and melody of it er so nice, and the meaning so positive, so that sealed the deal. Usually we just call her Naima, decided by asbjørn. it's hebrew and means "the one that looks after". A very suitable name for a collie; The amiable one that looks after". And thats how she is as well. She looks after the cats and the kids, and she's at her best in the evenings when the kids are sleeping, we are sitting down on the sofa, and the cats are resting in their favourite places. At this point she sighs satisfied and finds her place besides the sofa.
She is a dog you just have to love, and w are so happy to have met Gitte and Hallgeir who are such lovely breeders, and have given us this lovely girl with her great personality!
||Kavaleren’s Atomic Kitten, i everyday-life called Zuki.|
||Chihuahua Long Hair.|
||Kavaleren’s Hiaca Mita|
||Sawos Atomic Boy|
||Hege Pettersen and Andreas Holm with Kennel Kavaleren.|
Zuki was grown up when she moved in with us after having a safe and sound start at her breeder's along with the other docgs. We were a little anxious whether or not she would enjoy living with us and all the cats, and with Naima that was 5-6 times the size of the dogs she was used to. Well, that was one wasted concern!
The cats are fascinated with her, and don't know wheter to treat her like a baby or like some kind of toy. They're very gentle around her, and usually confine themselves to wash her off when allowed. She is a lovely little creature that just needs to be loved, and that is at her best when cuddling up in someones lap or round Ingunn's feet under the computer desk.
It is impossible to meet Zuki and not be touched by her mild and gentle personality. She's really something to herself, and our precious little piece of candy.
We are so happy that she's ours, and we're grateful to Hege and Andreas for giving us the opportunity to become Zuki's new family!
