Stardate..........2011

February 26th
Another hot and humid February day and evening spent at a Dog Show.

Our Finnish Lapphunds Herding Instinct's Herra Watersedge (imp SWE) (Markku) was awarded Best of Breed at one show and our home grown Watersedge Destiny's Child (Beyonce) was awarded the Best of Breed at the other. This is Beyonce's last show as a Minor Puppy.

We have confirmation that our Finnish Lapphund Ch. Fidelis Haltiatar (imp FNL) HIC (Taru) is pregnant! Whilst it will only be a small litter it is still a very important one for Watersedge Kennels.

It has been several years since Taru arrived with her imported litter on board and we have been waiting for just the right male for her second litter. The sire is our new and very handsome boy Herding Instinct's Herra Watersedge (imp SWE) (Markku). This is a match made in heaven and we can't wait to see the results!

Markku has been "busy" since he arrived and it is also confirmed that Ch. Watersedge Alias Anja (Sanni) is also expecting.

It was so exciting to see the little hearts beating on the ultrasound...

Happy, Happy Birthday to my most precious Finnish Lapphund Ch. Fidelis Haltiatar (imp FNL) HIC (Taru). It is hard to believe that she has been with me for almost 6 years. It only seems like yesterday that she arrived in whelp with Australia's first IID litter of Finnish Lapphunds.

We are hoping with fingers crossed and breath held to have more exciting news for her soon!

February 5th
Today we took a trip to the mountain and have seen the devastation that Mother Nature can unleash. It was an opportunity to see first hand the destruction wreaked by the heavy rain and flooding in Brisbane and the surrounding southeast region. Our trip took us through Cunninghams Gap, now a major road disaster with lanes washed away and avalanches across the road.

If I had not seen it I would not have believed it.

We ventured up to the Darling Downs to a country show where again Herding Instinct's Herra Watersedge (imp SWE) (Markku) was awarded Best of Breed Finnish Lapphund. Watersedge All About Attitude (Kati) has also gained her fist points towards her Australian Championship title.
