What an exciting weekend at the Lappie Motel this weekend. Chrissy (Snofyre) and Cassie (Ausvarg) travelled from the coast to spend the weekend at Caleebra with their Finnish Lapphunds. Regularly home to Mischa and Dolce, we were joined by Aurora-Rose (half sister to Mischa), Magnus, his son, Paddington, and daughter, Niina, from Snofyre and Scribble and her son Nike (also Magnus' son) from Ausvarg. To say we had a full house was an understatement. Looking out the window and seeing all the Lappies romping in the yard was a sight i'll not soon forget. It was simply amazing. They werent just here for a casual visit however. We took Bungendore show by storm. There were 8 Lappies entered on Saturday (courtesy of Demi making the day trip from Sydney) and 7 on Sunday. Nike wow'd the judges and took out BOB and Junior in Group both days. Scribble took out Neuter in Group on Sunday. Mischa took RUBOB on Saturday but wasnt shown on Sunday. Dolce took runner-up dog both days. It was cold and windy and whilst the humans struggled a little to maintain their enthusiasm this arctic breed had no such problems and actually thrived in the frigid conditions.
It was great to see the Northern NSW Lappies up close and personal for a few days and Caleebra is almost eerily quiet now that they've returned home.
