Birmingham National Show - Amazing Day
The National saw the third set of CCs being offered for the breed, and the judge was Sue Dunger (Sulyka) who imported the breed into the country and bred the first litters - so a person well known and respected, for many of us we would not have lapphunds if it was not for Sue. Sue awarded the Dog CC and BOB to Elbereth Matkamies, and the bitch CC to his litter sister Elbereth Kia Joins Bridus, both of course being Great-grandkids of Echo (WW02 Sulyka Mischa at Elbereth), they are the result of three generations of mating my original bitch line to Finnish dogs, Echo to Lumiturpa Nörri, Toive to Lecibsin Hapmi and Kyky to Lecibsin Macce. Then the reserve Bitch CC was awarded to Elbereth Penikka, an Echo Granddaughter being from Toives last mating to Lecibsin Kultakuono. What a day - our breeder team, of Matkamies, Mikko, Kia and Penikka won the breed competition, and we also had a second team of Kippis, Apina and Marja who were third in the breed, so a very proud day finished off by second in the breeder group overall.
