Mikka was the big, bad and bold puppy from my first litter that I just couldn't look past. Although in my name, he lives in the Mallee region in the North of Victoria where he is loved and shown by Sharon Donaldson of Ausled Swedish Vallhunds.
There was something about him from very early on that I just couldn't look past, looking full of masculine strength from such a young age, and with an absolutely gorgeous head. As he grew he quickly turned into my naughtiest puppy who strutted around like he owned the place, and when I put a collar and lead on him at 8 weeks of age there was no question he was born to shine.
It seems fitting that one of Kulta's sons should return to the Mallee where Kulta started his showing career, and I was very pleased that Sharon, who has been keeping an eye on the lappies since Kulta was a baby up there, was keen to extend her family to a slightly different Scandinavian lad. I am very proud to send Mikka to her where he has very quickly won her over with his naughty ways.
Mikka is from my gorgeous and stunning Finnish import girl, the famous Emmi (Aus Ch Lumiturpa Emmi (Imp Fnl)), who has fans and reconigition all over the world, and just awes me over and over with her beauty, presence and loving temperament. Her breeding is of some of my favourite lines, and is truly a great success, with her litter brother Eppu being one of the top winning Lappies in Finland at the moment.
His sire is my handsome and magnificant Kulta (Aus Ch Theldaroy Best Treasure C.C.D.) who is out of two of the earlier imports to Australia, who have had such a strong and impressive mark on the breed in this country. Kulta is the first Finnish Lapphund in Australia to be titled in three disciplines, in his case in conformation, obedience and herding. He is a boy who regularly attracts people with his impressive masculine presence and strong head, and his calm and gentle temperament.
We are really looking forward to posting up lots of news about Mikka's success in the show ring, and wish Sharon every success with him.
