We trekked north from home in winter - anything to get away from the cold weather of southern Australia. 

 Combining dog shows with camping and sightseeing made for a fun 10 weeks.

Introducing our new    Champion Mikulov This Is Living

Macho

Titled in February 2011, Macho went to a great home where he is a real part of the family - as a much loved pet

In February we titled Charm for Sharon and Sara Heys of Cairns

Champion Desaran Shez Quite The Charmer

 

The year began with us watching Bindi take the best care of her singleton pup Jingles - born by emergency caesarian section on Boxing Day  (26 December 2010) and enjoying the antics of this little mite as he was raised indoors with us - to keep him safe and socialised.

 

Here at 1 day old

 

3 days old

Jingles grew into a eye catching black and white male with blue eyes  -  he is being kept as his pedigree is different and not repeatable

Mikulov Jingle All The Way

We took him to Darwin with us and he went to some shows in July - where he won at the highest level in his age group.  However, he still found time to play!  Especially when the camera was pointed at him

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

2011  -  we said "Goodbye" to some more good friends 

Huskies who were loved by ourselves and their special families

-  and who are now missed by all who knew them

Each was special, unique and is remembered with affection

Taxi

20 May 2009   ~  31 December 2011

Above all - you were my pet

I really enjoyed just rubbing your tummy and so did you

 

I would have done it every day for many years - if only you had stayed here with me

 

 

Phoenix

4 October 2008  ~  23 January 2011

Almost totally blind from birth due to systemic infections under both sealed eyelids, Phoenix grew into a typical happy and energetic puppy, losing her right eye when she ran into a strand of wire.

Loved during her life by Stacey and Mitchell, Phoenix was let go when she began to have seizures which could not be controlled enough for her to have any quality of life.

Phoenix  ~  an inspiration 

~  long to be remembered

Chilli

6 November 1995 ~ 6 November 2011

from Beverley & Antonella:

 

Nothing beautiful in this world is ever really lost.

All things beloved live on in our hearts for ever.

We celebrated Chilliís 16th birthday today with a walk on the beach and loads of cuddles. She closed her eyes this afternoon and peacefully left this life.

We are forever blessed for having her spend the last few years happy with our Huskies.

and forging ahead more often than you would be aware
