I am not going to apologise for the length of this post...I have a story to tell.  So please strap in!

In January 2016 Damian, Lillian and I were preparing to move from Sydney to Launceston.  We were moving from a two-bedroom apartment to a four-bedroom house on 4 acres...

2019 continues to be an amazing year for Benni (Aust. Ch. Armahani Heliodorr Hulivili (ai) ET).  During the second quarter of the year, we attended 12 shows to finish with:

  • 1 x Best in Group (BIG1)

  • 6 x Runner-up Best in Group (BIG2)

  • 2 x Best Australian Bre...

After a long week on Camp, I made the mad dash to the airport on Friday the 12th April, to get Benni, Jäger and I to Sydney.  It was an eventful evening, firstly with me leaving my suit bag at the bar (it had been a long week!) and then my connecting flight being cance...

Is it really April already?  Once again, family and work commitments have meant the start of the year has seen limited showing.  But that doesn't mean we don't have some bragging to do.

2018 really has been the year that put Zuleika on the map, with the arrival of our first litter.  But this was only a part of the highlights.

Finally some time to sit and reflect over the last few weeks.

Having missed entries to my local royal, Launceston Royal, because my head was clearly still in Finland, our first show for the agricultural show season was my old stomping ground, Longford.  I was super thri...

With work commitments, puppies and a trip to Finland, our showing really has been limited this

year.  But with the weather warming up and our

summer of shows ahead of us, I am looking forward to a few months of (fairly) intensive showing.

This weekend we ventured out to t...

I have just returned from an amazing trip to Finland.  The land of 24 hour daylight, reindeer and of course, Finnish Lapphunds.  This was an opportunity to meet Finnish Lapphund breeders, watch Lappies working and see as many dogs as possible.  I really wanted to see w...

This is my first post for 2018!  It has been a very quiet start to the year, in terms of Dog Shows.  I managed my school's First XI Cricket Team, which took up all day every Saturday for the first part of the year.  And when you have a 'non-doggy family', it is difficu...

Our shows have been a little spaced out over the last few months, so I had been saving up and then suddenly I realised I had heaps to write about.  So here goes...

The Royal Launceston Show is our local agricultural show and Tasmania's second largest multi day show.  A...
