When I published my first homepage it was at first meant to be about me -  (you know, "I" am the most important person to me ;-) ) but for some reason I heard more and more that people would rather read about my dogs!  :-(   ...So, I am not the most interesting creature on the globe after all… What a shock to me…

I still have to skip most of my German shepherd activities because of the lack of space - if I put everything concerning my  GS:s here, I needed to write a novel. Anyhow, at these days my dog  hobby has more to do with Swedish Vallhunds - the lovely little monsters.

Since I don´t have lots of space, I have decided to skip most of the general information about this unique little herding breed . There are many good and informative pages among the linked sites where you can find that  information as well as here.

Anyway, I won´t give up totally! You still have to read something about Oikku, too. Don´t worry - I promise to keep that part very small :-(  …    

In This version of homepages there are 40 pages and lots of pics, most of Swedish Vallhunds. By clicking the underwrited words you find a link to another site or page of this site.

Once again, welcome and  hopefully  you enjoy your visit!

About Oikku…

I was born in Turku, on the south western coast of Finland. There I spent my childhood and studied untill I moved to Rauma, 100 km´s north from Turku. In Rauma I studied in the college of commerce where my main branch was ADP but I never worked in that area because  just a couple of months after graduating I found the Insurance business and I am still on that road…

but tho be honest, recently  has digital photographing taken more and more room in my calender…  If you´re interested in my photowork, have a look at Oikku´s DigiPic -page .
