Aus Ch. Armahani Crystal Caibmat RA
Everyday with Dolce is a fun-filled rollercoaster of laughter, love and excitement. He is my constant shadow, my companion and my little cuddle monster. When i stumbled across the Finnish Lapphund a few years back, I was smitten with Emmi, Au Grand Ch. Lumiturpa Emmi CCD RE JD HT (Imp FIN) from Armahani. I waited two years for Emmi to have her next litter and heaved a huge sigh of relief when Dolce was born (among 6 sisters) and again when Jacq confirmed he was to be mine. He loves to play and act the clown and rushes into everything without regard. He shows a real knack for trick-training and is making a fine obedience pupil, attaining his Rally Novice title in 2013, his Rally Advance title in 2014 and on his way to his Rally Excellent title in 2015. He likes food, but loves to celebrate which means we're always having a dance together for every little achievement and we're both exhausted by the end of training.
His sire is Louis, Aus Supreme Ch. C'est Louis Armstrong des Chevaloupsgreg CD RAE HSAs (Imp USA) who is an all-rounder with fantastic wins in the show ring as well as titling in many of the performance disciplines, He's taken out a Best in Show (BIS) and Best in Specialty Show(BISS), several Runner-Up(RU) BIS and RUBISS, multiple Best-In-Group, RUBIG and just as many classes In-Group and In-Show and in the process, become a Grand and Supreme Champion. In sports, he gained his Herding Test (HT), Pre-Trial (PT) and Herding Starter A (sheep) titles as well as CCD, CD, Rally Novice (RN), Advanced (RA), Excellent (RE) and Advanced Excellent (RAE) Obedience titles. Louis is now largely retired from the show ring, but has quite a few offspring around the country also doing well.
His dam Emmi, is the most stunning representative of the breed and the reason we got started in Finnish Lapphunds. In 2011 she took out a Best In Group and Best of Breed at the Royal Melbourne and Royal Perth shows. She became a Grand Champion and since 2012 has been largely retired, only coming out for Royals and specialty shows where she still gives the young ones a run for their money. She took out RUBISS at the FLCV Specialty in 2013 and Best in Specialty Show at the FLCNSW Specialty in 2014. She has also achieved her CCD and RN, RA and RE Obedience Titles, JD (Jumping Dog) in agility and HT in herding. Emmi has a couple of offspring in the country competing at shows and performance sports, and many more relatives have since been imported. Dolce takes after his dam thus far in looks and build, and all who meet him comment on how gorgeous this boy is.
Dolce is co-owned with Armahani. Our daily thanks to Jacq Lincoln for allowing this boy to come into our home. We can only hope Dolce is up to the task of maintaining the family honour, and we endeavour to help him achieve all he can. His parents have set the bar high, and we do our best.
Dolce is the sire of our Armani Litter.
Dolce is the sire of the SnoFyre 'C' (Causin) litter and Janoby 'H' (High) litter.
