Our Dogs

We show a few times a year, itís a good excuse for a weekend away and we get to meet up with our friends, who live all over the UK.

We currently have 4 Finnish Lapphunds in our family; Isla, Rufus and Mina (Isla's daughter) and our latest edition Freddie

Both Isla and Mina had their annual eye test in 2013 and we are pleased to say that they are both clear of any conditions.

Isla - Honeybears Lumi Pilvi (Snow Cloud) DOB: 9th June 2009

I was introduced to Carol Stuckey (Honeybears) by Simon Brown  (Lumikoira).  Carol had an older puppy looking for a working home, I wanted a Finnish Lapphund to do agility. The meeting was arranged!  When we met Isla it was love at first sight, thankfully Carol said Isla could come and live with us.

Isla qualified for Crufts in 2011 and again in 2012.  She really enjoys agility and I am also teaching her some Canine Freestyle tricks to keep her entertained. I am only lightly showing her in 2012 as we have a litter planned for later in the year.

Rufus - Sambreeze Hamara Kaakoa (Dark Chocolate) DOB: 3rd May 2005

Rufus found himself in need of a new home at 4 years old, due to his owners change of circumstances.  I agreed with Rufus breeder that we would initially foster him because we had just got Isla who was only 5 months old and we  had two much older dogs who were already coping with a puppy.  Because Rufus is well behaved he fitted easily, it was like we had always owned him and after a few days It was a done deal for us, he was going nowhere!

Sadly Rufus was neutered by his previous owners, despite this he does well in the show ring. His first show was at the National Working and Pastoral Breeds Championship Show in July 2011 where he qualified for Crufts 2012 and was placed 4th in his class there. He has also qualified for Crufts 2013 at the Finnish Lapphund Club of Great Britain.  Rufus got two firsts at the Southern Finnish Lapphund Society Open Show in Post Graduate and Special Neutered Dog. Rufus will be a Veteran in July 2012.

In December 2012 we were fortunate to have a litter of 2 boys and 1 girl from Isla and Glenchess Ilolas (more) and decided to keep the girl from the litter so Alkantara Ilo Mina (Mina) came to be part of our pack. 

We are very proud that in August 2013 Mina was awarded Best Puppy in Breed at EELKS.
