Cooma and District Kennel and Obedience Club Show

5th-7th October 2012



We had a fantastic weekend at the three shows held by the Cooma District Kennel and Obedience Club. 

We took Annika, Mushka and Enkieli to these series of shows and they each had a turn being Best of Breed! Other highlights included Veikko's Minor Puppy in Group and Mischa's Neuter in Group- well done to the Lappies!

Thank you to Kate Pinker who assisted with handling- and congratulations to Kate and her Japanese Spitz Maui on their Best in Show win on Sunday and Runner Up in Show win on Saturday.

We had some interesting weather in Cooma- all seasons over 3 days. Summer one day, raining the next, icey cold on the last day.

FLCNSW Obedience and Rally-O Introduction and Fun Day 

20th October 2012


Today the Finnish Lapphund Club of NSW hosted its first club event. Organised and facilitated by Nicola Boyd and Shell Gurney, the day had a great turnout and was a great success.

I think we all left the day with some confidence to further pursue Rally O. 


Here is a video compiled by Nicola Boyd of the day-

A huge thank you to Nik and Shell for organising such a wonderful day!
