As the years beginning to wind up, we're planning an interstate move shortly, and my dogs are dropping their coats like they want to live in a nudist colony (in preparation for the hot summer months), i felt i may as well draft the wrap up for the year.
Our dogs were on fire in 2018, competing across Conformation Shows, Rally, Agility, Sled Sports, Flyball and Tricks. Between them they've accrued 17 titles this year and i'm both proud and humbled by the training time and dedication of their owners as well as their commitment to do more with their dogs.
On the show front, our Lappies have also had an incredible year. From youngsters taking surprise wins, to our show stars being recognised and awarded top honours. Many thanks again to the dedication and hard work of their owners.
There are often many km's travelled and a lot of behind the scenes training for those few minutes in the trial or show ring.
As very bad breeders/owners, we haven't kept track of all our wins this year, mostly because the results don't really matter as long as we're having a good day out. But there were a couple of notable Best of Breeds against both large and medium entries, and multiple classes in group from our youngsters in particular that just thrill me. Of course we also have a number of wonderful, loved and adored pets keeping their hearts warm and their bodies active. To all of our puppy owners we send a special thank you for the care, love and companionship.

Also we were delighted to have the beautiful Miss Poppy be Delta Therapy certified. She's a real people pleaser and we think she's going to really enjoy visiting the elderly and helping to brighten their day.
