As always, beautiful pictures! My dogs all love blueberries too --as do I, yum! -- but how very lucky to be able to pick wild ones yourself! Elja clearly enjoyed herself with your children. :)

I always take a mini vacation when I look at your pictures!! We had just picked a ton of fresh blueberries and blackberries at my folks in South Carolina. Nothing better than fresh berries!! Elja looks so content!

Hi Justine:)
No, not quite but almost though. In december the sun will come upp maybe around 10:30 /11 and go down again around 3 o´clock so almost :)
Instead we get almost 24 hours of sunlight in the summertime :thmbsup:

As Im not Icelandic ,it took some time to get used to the winterdarkness but now I think it´s kind of cozy. It gives me a chance to use the firelace more often and light lots and lots of candles :)
Also Icelanders are known for their love of christmas-lights outside in their windows ,gardens etc and that does make the the winter darkness very "pretty" and fairytale-like.
The northern light is also very special and makes the darkness wortwhile too;)

I had some lovely blueberries tonight and I was saying I'd like to grow them but I didn't know if the plant looked nice. I will definately get some now I know what they look like. Lovely pics of Elja.

Your pictures are amazing. As much as I love to see your beautiful Ruby Elja, I also enjoy seeing the scenery of Iceland. Your children are very cute as well. :)

I sound like an echo by now after all the previous posts, but your Elja and your kids are beautiful. You take nice photos. Iceland looks gorgeous, and already cold judging by the dress! Here, we are still sweltering and running the A/C 24 hours a day. The radio said this morning that it would be "cool" today, with a high of 89. I suppose that will feel cool after all our high 90's.

Duncan here,

HMMMMMMMMMM, blueberries. I loooooooooove blueberries too and I would love to be in Elja's place eating them all day long with my family. Ruby always said if I ate too many though, I would turn blue instead of red, like Elja and I are now. :eek: I don't really believe her and it looks like Elja has proven her wrong. Elja is so pretty and the photo's are so very nice. I really want to come to Iceland now. Next time I'm in the back seat of the car on the way to the treat store, I'm going to pop up and suggest to Ruby and Sydney that we take a road trip to Iceland. Can Cavaliers come to Iceland for a visit or are visiting dogs not allowed? Have fun Elja and enjoy the rest of your summer. PS: Can you send me some blueberries?

As it is no pets/animals are welcome in Iceland:( We have very strict regulations about animals up here which makes it impossible to bring pets to Iceland.
Its very tough for breeders also,as puppies imported to Iceland will have to be in a quarantine(is that what it is called?) for 4 weeks.
Not all breeders oversea are ready to send their pupps off in an airoplane and let them dwell in a place for 4 weeks before meeting their new family.

Also horses competing in other counties will have to be sold after competing ,as they can never come back to Iceland again.
We hope to get PETpass in maybe the next ten years but we are not being too optomistic about it though.
In theory you could bring your dog,but he would still have to spent 4 weeks in Iceland without you first, which would be very inconvinient and very expensive too! So even if the blueberries are good....the are very pricy too:o

Oooooohhhhh, that's too bad. Can we come if we promise to be on our best behavior and not sneeze on anyone? No? Well, I guess we'll have to live vicariously through Elja for now. I guess its probably best because I don't think we can drive from Virginia to Iceland. We'll just have to be jealous for now and maybe Mom and Dad can take us back to Maine so we can eat blueberries like Elja and your children.
