From the Centre of the Heart of the High Coast

Champis -the Big little Rabbit, lives in a barn, in the small village, in what we call; The Centre of the Heart of the High Coast.. The village is in Sweden, Europe. The village is small, but there is a Big heart of goodness,
in the rabbit Champis..

The movie about Champis soon reaches the two million mark on Youtube, and we still find this hard to believe. People from 192 different countries have seen the video on Youtube. What a superstar he has become. We are getting many beautiful, nice, wellwritten, polite and friendly comments at our blog and by e-mail, and if we don't have the time to answer you right now, we promise you that we will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible. Many of you ask us to give Champis your love and an extra carrot, and we will do that, next time we go and visit him.We will bring him a BIG bag of carrots, and be a little extra nice to him... :))

From this summer, Dan training Gimmie...

The pictures above is from this marvellous small village. We often go there to meet our good friends and to train our sheepdogs. The scenery is like magic! In the first picture, our 7-year-old Gimmie is driving, and on the other one, her two-year-old daughter Fame, is ready to gather the sheep..

We get back to the story about the rabbit Champis...
In Sweden, it's a tradition with a show called Dinner for One, shown on TV every New Year's Eve.There's something similar between the rabbit Champis,and the head of the tiger skin laying on the floor, which waitor James keep tripping up on...
-Does this sound strange?
-Do you want to know more?

Well, then I'll tell you another day... ;))

A comment from the Youtubeclip;

-Ha Ha Ha, the farmers here in NZ will have to watch out,
the rabbits will herd their sheep soon.....
Thank you for a funny comment, ebotica :))
