We are incredibly pleased to announce that, at just over 2 years of age, our lovely Miia (Lapinlunas Onnentyttö) won Best of Breed, the CAC and the Norwegian Winners certificate at the Norwegian Winners Championship Show (Nov 20th 2016). This last CAC means that she has added another 5 new titles to her name, as she is now a Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Danish and Nordic Champion (as well as the Norwegian winner title) - and, once approved by the NKK, will be known as NUch SeUch DkUch FiUch NordUch NW-16 EuJW-15 Lapinlunas Onnentyttö (that's a bit of a mouthful there!)
Her BOB critique under Finnish Judge Maija Sylgren was:
2 yrs, ex(cellent) type and prop(ortions), well balanced, beautiful bitch, g(ood) head and expression, correct bite, beautiful neck and topline, well set tail, ex(cellent) body and bone, well balanced angles, efficient mover, ex(cellent) coat, nice temp(erament).
The icing on the cake for us is the news that Miia is currently the top winning Finnish Lapphund bitch in Norway for 2016 (NKK list) and second for the breed overall - not a bad achievement for a young girl who is still maturing!
As always, we are most indebted to our good friend Jonna Almenäs for looking after Miia so well and showing her to her titles, and to her breeder Rebecka Ylén for trusting Miia to us.
We shall be opening a bottle tonight to celebrate!
