We would like to introduce our beloved Kindle (NZ CH Murival Antares) who waltzed into our lives and became a very special part of our family in 2003. 


He is our one in million companion and friend!!


 Kindle is an extremely happy outgoing, intelligent dog who was born just loving people of all ages!! A serious ball fan, he will play an endless game of fetch for hours with anyone who is willing to participate!  He never fails to bring a smile to the face of people he meets and is a much loved member of our family.

In his time in the show ring he achieved many best of breed wins and was a Twice Junior of Group winner at All Breeds Shows creating a milestone for the breed at the time.


Kindle also trained for competitive obedience and aglity, is apt at herding cows and sheep and loves to show off a few favourite tricks !!


A huge thank you to Beverly Trowbridge for entrusting this very special boy to me.

"Sparky"  bounced into our lives and quickly became known as the pocket rocket, none of our other valls have ever been able to out run him ! 


He is a wonderful example of the breed, exhibing great type and comformation.  He comes from a long line of BIS, Class in Show and Multiple Group winning Swedish Vallhunds from around the world, and brings with him some exciting new bloodlines from, Sweden, Finland and Australia. 


Sparky as his name implies is full of vim and vigour !! He loves long walks, fun in the snow and is always up for a good ball game.


We would like to extend our thanks to his breeder Lynne Henry for entrusting us with this lovely boy.
