TabanyaRuu Hyppia at Lumikoira, aka Kiva

I started hankering after a second Lapphund about 9 months after Mylo joined us - being one to wear my heart on my sleeve I made my wish public knowledge, a bad move as no end of people told me that I should wait until Mylo was at least 2 years of age and I resigned myself to do so.

A couple of months later, and totally out of the blue, I received an email from one of those advising me to wait ...... The email began "This is going to be a long and hypocritical email ....." In short it contained the question; "Would you like to have one of my puppies as a surprise birthday present for Louise?"  One week week later Louise and I drove down to Surrey to meet with Liz of TabanyaRuu and to see our furkid to be.
The litter was a perfect balance of 3 dogs and 3 bitches, 3 brown tris and 3 black tris - you can find out more about the litter here.

Bizarrely Kiva is a year and a day younger than Mylo and she came to join us exactly a year after Mylo came to live with us, fate certainly played its part in our pack.

We have never shown our dogs a lot, probably 3 or 4 times a year however a highlight of our showing was when, in March 2010, Kiva was awarded Reserve Best Bitch in Breed at Crufts.
