Hej from Sweden

Post by Nimwey » Tue Jul 03, 2012 11:11 am

I'm a 21 year old swede who was born and raised in the north (Örnsköldsvik), and moved down to Karlstad two years ago.

I've grown up with Shetland Sheepdogs, had a Whippet and now have a two year old Ca de Bou, or Mallorcan mastiff/bulldog. I discovered the Tamaskan breed in (I think it was) late 2008, through a site listing different types of GSD types and relatives, including the Saarloos and Csv (which were known to me since several years back), and the Utonagan.

I looked it up, and learned about the Northern Inuit, Utonagan, and the Tamaskan. I've kept them in my mind but never seriously considered them by the time I got my current dog, as they were not what I was looking for at the time.

Now, I was planning to let the next dog (whenever that happens - 1, 2 years from now?) be a little dog, like a Volpino, but damn, I have a thing for the big "back-to-basic dogs" too, and the Korea Jindo Dog and Thai Ridgeback Dog (that I have admired for years) feel too "wild" for the lifestyle I have now. So I'd rather aim for a more domesticated breed, with the wild looks (though as any sane person, I put health and temperament above looks any day :)).

I have however decided to get a cat before the next dog, so I have time to think (I don't want to be getting animals too close in time, it feels almost like impulse-buying), learn if the Tamaskan actually fits me, read up on all the disagreements (I just recently learned of the Aatu Tamaskan and the "Tamaskan Truth" websites and so on - boy is this a mess :shock:), different lines, how it really is with the wolf-content (I've read a couple of threads here about it, and I realize the DNA-tests don't seem very reliable), etc.

But then I look up current puppies, and DAMN (sorry) am I thankful that I have great resistance against puppy pictures. :D
(But why do the cutest ones have to be the ones still available?)
Oh well. I will wait until I know what I'm getting into, and not go impulse-buying. ;)

Hi and welcome :D

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

~ Cherokee Proverb

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity... I'm not sure about the former.

Heh, I was asking him if he wanted treats when I took that picture. ;)

Skoj. :D
If you don't mind and have the time, would it be okay if I get there and meet and talk with you a little? :)
And BTW, are you a member at either vovve.net (a place I'm tired of and have left) or zoonen.com?
Because I have seen members there with Tamaskan/s, and I don't know how many there are in Sweden.

Edit: Tomorrow - now I saw you wrote it last night, so you mean today? Maybe I'm too late. :roll:

Never to late :D but today is a little to late. Var i Karlstad bor du?
Vi håller till ute på Hammarö (Skoghall)

Vecka 29 är vi tillbaka i Karlstad igen! Då kan vi ses så får du träffa iaf Maccon.. eller om du kommer ut till Skoghall o träffar alla våra söta små ;)

och ja jag har varit både på zoonen o vovve män är där typ 1 gång per år :) och jag tror inte det finns nån annan Tam ägare där ute.
Brukar vara ute på Hundsajten då o då istället å lägga ut foton.

Har du Facebook? Sök gärna upp gruppen Nova & Maccon - Tamaskan Dog.

Jag bor på Rud. :)
Jag kollade upp den jag sett på Zoonen, och det var du, och så kom jag ihåg att den på Vovve också hade en American Wolfdog som heter Midas - så det var tydligen du också. ;)
Jag vill minnas att jag pratade med dig där på Vovve när du fått hem honom, och undrade om han var en Tamaskan pga. ditt användarnamn.
Jag är anti-ansiktsbok, så nej tyvärr. :roll:

Sorry to the rest of you for the language switch. :)

haha.. ja jag var lite över allt i början :D

There are threads in french here aswell and I don't understand a word so I don't think everything has to be in english :D
Let's meet next time I'm in Karlstad.

It's easier to keep in touch through FB but I'll write here a couple of days before I'm planning a trip to Karlstad City :D

Have a great weekend!
