Gracie was our first Finnish Lapphund and the 12th lappie in Canada, because of her our lives have changed with more Finnish Lapphunds and many new friends around the world. Thank you to Linda Marden for Gracie and all the guidance along the way she continues to be my mentor and friend.

In September 2004, Gracie became a UKC CHAMPION! On July 6, 2007 Gracie made history by becoming the first Finnish Lapphund at a Canadian Kennel Club show to receive Best of Breed! Then one year to the day Gracie became a new CKC Champion Jul 4, 2008 at Portage La Prairie Kennel club and even had a litter in between.  Thank you Michelle Rogowski who showed her for her first points and her last needed point.

Gracie is a very special FL in Canada.  She is well constructed with a beautiful head and expression, balanced proportions and friendly Lappie temperament.  Her pedigree includes Kello Reijo who is a proven sire with many outstanding litters in Europe. Gracie’s first litter was born Dec 18, 2006 she surprised us with 8 puppies and she was a great mom .

Gracie’s second litter of 6 surprised us with two domino patterned boys.  One just had to stay at Shadagrace (Teemu).

She passed the CKC Herding Instinct Test Sep 09 and got the first leg to a CKC Herding title. In Sep 2010 she got her 2nd leg and is the first lappie to get a working herding title.  She certainly can move when she sees sheep.

Gracie was to be spayed but surprised us and came into season unexpectedly.  We thought it was meant to be when we found out Bruce (GrCh Sugarok Born in the USA) was in town at the right time.  Her 3rd litter gave us 6 beautiful pups.  One girl just had to stay, Fergie.

Gracie is now retired and is the "fun police" in the yard.  She is always watching over the dogs.

**** July 2014, Gracie went back in the ring thinking we go for Veterans and also got Best of Opposite under Finnish judge Marja Talvitie.  The same day she worked hard and got her CGN title ***  Never too old :)
