Siiri is our cockerspaniel spending her old age in Råmossa. Siiri loves two things above all: belly rubs and food. She greets our guests with a tail wag and loves getting attention. Siiri still gets post cards from our visitors Japanese sisters around the world. She follows our guests to the forest and looks for food there. Her favorite forest treats include yellowfeet chantarelles and blueberries. Her best friend is Susi, although Susi sometimes takes advantage of Siiri’s kindness and occupies her bed. Siiri is a nice dog who never escapes, and most of all: she is friends with everyone.
Our cat Susi is a house cat born in Ilola. Susi is kind and affectionate and often follows our visitors on their hikes in the forest. Her best friend is our dog Siiri. Susi loves to jump on Siiri’s back and use it as a springboard. Her other favorite pastime is climbing trees, she can get on a pine branch in seconds and then spend time there observing what is going on on the ground. However, she also has a wilder side: she is a passionate hunter. She catches the mice, voles and shrews near the main building - that is Susi’s job, and she ensures no rodents get inside the lodge.
