Two shows today and to celebrate his birthday, Thor wins Best of Breed at both shows and the first time in Junior wins both Junior in Group on offer. So thrilled with the consistency of this boy.
A very happy 1st Birthday to the Beyond litter. ( Sire:Ch Lapinlumon Velho (Imp Dmk) x Sibermoon Airi). So nice to see how they have grown with their new families.
Thor - Snofyre Beyond Odinsson, Teija - Snofyre Beyond Compare & MJ - Snofyre Beyond Belief.
I was unable to attend today but sent Niina-Ch Sibermoon Niina, down with Samantha & James, along with their boy Snofyre Beyond Odinsson to represent Snofyre kennels at the Spitz Breed Club of NSW Championship show.
What great results for the day!!! Niina was Bitch Challenge & Best Of Breed for the 3rd year in a row and young Thor won the Dog Challenge, Runner Up Best of Breed and Best Puppy in Show!!!! So proud of this young boys achievements.
I borrowed Thor-Snofyre Beyond Odinsson , today and we ventured to a show. I haven't had much show time this year due to the grooming business being in it's first year so it was lovely just to get away for the day.
The show team consisted of Thor-Snofyre Beyond Odinsson, Suri-Finnesse Aim for Success(AI) & Chloe-Snofyre Cauzin Bedlam. They all showed really well with Thor winning DCC/Best of Breed & Puppy in Group!!!!
Suri won BCC and Chloe actually managed to keep four feet on the ground for Baby of Breed.
Fantastic weekend at the Harden cluster for the Snofyre Team and fabulous to catch up with the Canberra Lappies,
First day, Laika-Snofyre Alluring Apollo Best of Breed & Thor Snofyre Beyond Odinsson Runner up Best of Breed. Suri - Finnesse Aim for Success (AI) took the Bitch Challenge.
Second day, Snofyre Alluring Apollo Best of Breed & Thor Snofyre Beyond Odinsson Runner up Best of Breed. Suri - Finnesse Aim for Success took the Bitch Challenge & Aust Bred in Group!!!
This was the final points Laika needed to now be known as Ch Snofyre Alluring Apollo. The third champion from the "Alluring" litter between Magnus x Aurora-Rose.
Third day, Laika- Best of Breed & Intermediate in Group !!!!
Thor was Reserve dog & Suri was Bitch Challenge & Runner up Best of Breed.
Huge congratulations to Andrew & Arya, now to be known as Ch Snofyre Alluring Arya. The second girl from the Alluring litter to gain her Aust Ch title.
This is especially exciting for me as 5 years ago when Andrew met his first Lappie, Demo, another Magnus son, he actually didn't like dogs.
What a huge turn around a few years and lots of Lappie cuddles can make.
The weekend of the 20th-22nd June and the annual Border Challenge clash between Finnish Lapphund Club of NSW & Finnish Lapphund Club of Vic is a show I look forward to every year.
It is so good to catch up with friends and the camaraderie between fellow Lappie owners makes this such a special weekend.
The show team this year consisted of Magnus-Gr Ch Theldaroy Green with NV (AI), Laika-Snofyre Alluring Apollo, Niina-Ch Sibermoon Niina, Suri-Finnesse Aim for Success (AI) and making their debut in the show ring Erik-Snofyre Cauzin Kaos & Chloe-Snofyre Cauzin Bedlam.
Congratulations to Team NSW on winning the trophy this year!!
Laika - Snofyre Alluring Apollo and I set off for Dogs NSW, "Dogs on Show" Championship show today. This is a show that is advertised to the public so they can come and meet a variety of breeds in the one place and talk to breeders and owners about their dogs.
The Finnish Lapphunds were well represented and were the recipients of many cuddles during the day. A hard life for a Lappie indeed.
The highlight of my day came when Nathaneal and his gorgeous girl Asha-Snofyre Alluring Asha won the bitch challenge, giving Asha enough points to attain her Championship title. Asha is the first champion produced from the Alluring litter (Gr Ch Theldaroy Green with NV (AI) x Ch Articmal Dynamic Fortune) A huge thank you to Nathaneal for campaigning & loving this gorgeous girl.
Best of Breed on the day went to Asha's brother Laika, Snofyre Alluring Apollo.
