Birthday Celebrations again! There must have been something in the air....

It is hard to imagine that 5 years ago today, Ch. Fidelis Haltiatar (imp FIN) (Taru) delivered the first imported in dam (IID) litter of Finnish Lapphunds for Australia.

Again I would like to thank my friend Deb Neumann of Happylea Kennels for being there for Taru - on the eve of Good Friday. When I arrived in quarantine the following morning there were 6 Finnish Lapphund babies!

This was the first Finnish Lapphund litter for Watersedge. Again I can't thank enough Eva Niemi of Fidelis Kennels in Finland and Katja Rantanen of Ruskahallan Kennels, also in Finland - and owner of FIN/RUS Ch. Fidelis Alias Amicus (Otso) - for putting this combination together and sending it to the other side of the world.

Taru was a gift in herself, but her puppies have done her proud.

Happy Birthday to Grand Ch. Watersedge Alias Aleksi (IID) (Aleksi), Ch. Watersedge Tru Colours (IID) (Katja), Ch. Watersedge Tru Destiny (IID) HT (Jaana), Ch. Watersedge Tru Diamond (IID) (Sylvi), Ch. Watersedge Tru Calling (IID) (Enya) and Watersedge Tru Magic (IID) (Zana), herself expecting her first litter at Easter.

New photos are now in the gallery of the latest Australian Kelpie litter - Ch. Engleforest Jarrah (Jarrah) x Watersedge Diamantina (Tina). They are growing so quickly.

Now most of them resemble little fruit bats or are doing their best impersonation of the flying nun!

After a few uncertain days, Watersedge Black Bear (Cody) is safely home and we are all very much relieved!

Cody was "surrendered" to the RSPCA and it was only by stroke of luck that he is now home. Thank you to Fiona. Cody is back at Watersedge following the break up of his former owners' marriage.

He is a delightful young man, who has bounced back despite the uncertainty of the last few weeks. This litte black bear is the son of the late Ch. Kairouban Flashy Black (Flash) and Ch. Watersedge Georgie Girl (George) and a litter brother to Watersedge Diamantina, the mother of our latest litter of Australian Kelpies.

Cody will be up for adoption to the right people, once he is recovered completely.

Another celebration for Watersedge today with our georgous Finnish Lapphund Ch. Theldaroy Best Example (Minka) celebrating her birthday!

Mink Monk Moo Moo was the second Finnish Lapphund to call Watersedge home. She is a full sister to our first Finnish Lapphund - Grand Ch. Theldaroy Wild Not Me (Laani).

Minka was so irresistable, it was impossible not to bring her home! She is one of only a handful of Domino Sable Finnish Lapphunds to be born in Australia and is absolutely adorable!

More birthday celebrations - this time for our original twins.

Happy 12th Birthday to Ch. Watersedge Star Dust (Dusty) and Ch. Watersedge Sweet Melody (Melody). Dusty and Melody were from the 3rd litter of Australian Kelpies bred at Watersedge.

They are from Tarndrew Watch My Style (Danni) and Grand Ch. Ringbarka Ginger Meggs (Ginger Meggs). Danni and Ginger Meggs did not have the opportunity to grow old gracefully. They both set off to the "Rainbow Bridge" far too soon which adds weight to the old adage that only the good die young.

It does not seem possible that they could be celebrating their 12th year. I can still remember them as tiny babies and what an amazing gift they were. 

March 5th
It is with great sadness that we have said goodbye for the time being to Ch. Janoby All About Aura (Roara). Roara has gone with her parents, Wayne & Sue Sharp of Janoby Kennels, but we do hope to see her again soon. It has been an absolute delight to have this young lady as our house guest.

It was a very sad moment last night when her daughter Watersedge All About Attitude (Kati), was looking for her mother.

It is also a time to celebrate another birthday! Ch. Watersedge Evening Star (Evie) is celebrating her birthday today.

Evie is a puppy from our dearly departed Australian Kelpies Ch. Kairouban Flashy Black (Flash) and "Teddy Bear" Ch. Ringbarka Gemma (Gemma).

Happy Birthday "Baby Evie".
