We are pleased to announce the safe arrival of 6 lovely puppies on Friday 22nd April, 2016. For more information on our latest litter please follow this link to our litter page. We will provide regular updates on the litter on both our kennel blog here and via our dedicated Facebook pages.
We are so pleased with the news that Taigakoira Elon Ilo (Boris) yesterday achieved the remaining points for his Australian Champion title with a lovely Best of Breed win at Sovereign City Kennel Club Show under Judge Ms Margaret Joyce.
Boris is from our Elo litter between Ch Herding Instinct's Nakke Nakuttaja (imp Swd) (Osku) and our own Ch Taigakoira Aamuntahti (Ruby). He is the first in that litter to achieve his title, and he is our 7th Australian champion from our own breeding. He is also the 5th Australian champion sired by Osku.
Boris' owner, Huey Miin Lim, has put in an incredible amount of work into learning about showing and handling, and has done a superb job with Boris. We are very pleased with how he has turned out and much of that is due to the dedication of his lovely owner, Huey Miin. We look forward to seeing Huey Miin and Boris out in the rings still, as we wait for his brothers Freki and Wolfgang to catch up to their brother and get their titles too! ;)
For anyone looking for a bit of a lappie cuddle, we will be heading to the Dog Lovers Show in Melbourne (Carlton, Royal Exhibition building) on Friday 29th April, to support the Finnish Lapphund Club of Victoria's breed information stall. The event will be going all weekend, but if you would like to meet Osku and some of his kids, we will be there on the Friday, charming the socks off the public I'm sure! We have done this event every year since it started and it has become a great opportunity to not only promote the breed, but lets the lappies get free pats, cuddles and smooches - something they just LOVE. So if you want an excuse to come to an event that is open to the public and 100% all things K9, then come on down!
We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting a litter at Taigakoira! It's been a while since we had the tiny pitter patter of puppy paws (and needle sharp milk teeth in ankles!) but we are delighted to announce that the mating between our striking Sohvi (Ch Watersedge Little Black Dress) to our sweetheart boy Osku (Ch Herding Instinct's Nakke Nakuttaja (imp Swd) was successful, and pups are due at the end of April. This is a repeat of our Davvir litter from a number of years ago, which has produced 3 Australian champions (and I can hear owners adding that this includes one with a herding title and another working on an obedience title... ;) ) so we are hopeful that we will have the same quality again this time around. For more information check out our litters webpage HERE - we will update everyone on the progress of the litter via both our blog and our Taigakoira kennel facebook page!
