I tried to find the old thread of spitz pictures, but I got tired of looking for it. So... here is a new one!

I was hoping to see some fresh photos of all of your gorgeous dogs original.gif Plus, I happen to think my boy is pretty cute, so I shall share some pictures of him. Kody is a Finnish Lapphund, he turned one a few days after Christmas. He has been a perfect fit in our family, his breeders did an excellent job at picking him for us! I don't post pics very often, so my memory is a little rusty. Hopefully this will work!

Hubby calls this his pretty shot.

We may have distracted him mid poo. But his fluffy bum is so cute!

Anyone else want to share some pics of their fluffy buddy?

What breeder is he from? He looks like a Theldaroy.

VERY current photos lol...ie: yesterday. My sister and I were out back with the dogs, and she snapped some shots of my girl.







I adore her so much...she is so sweet and extradordinarily well behaved, now she's stopped chewing the kids toys  laugh.gif  She's the perfect dog for kids. And for me.

Yes, he's a Theldaroy dog original.gif He is from the Angel/Jukki litter. He is the most gentle, quietly affectionate dog I have ever met. He and my 2.5yo DS are best mates.

Snik is gorgeous, I love her markings original.gif

Ah yes, he is snik's half brother. Jukki is snikky's dad. He is so so gorgeous!

I think Snik is gorgeous too original.gif I can't believe it took me nearly 40 years to find a breed I was in love with  laughing2.gif  But I'm a lappie devotee now.

This is my girl Mishka just after I spent an hour with her and her Furminator... She isn't from a breeder - we had planned on buying a husky from a breeder but then we heard about Mish and her brother...a friend of a friend had some dogs and they decided they couldn't be bothered getting either of them desexed, so it came as no surprise when puppies came along. One of the pups died, so there was only Mish and her brother left and the vet convinced them to have one of the parents desexed after the pups were born,  but we were worried that the idiots that would wind up keeping the pups and use them to breed.  rant.gif There was no way I could let that happen, so DH and I asked if we could adopt Mish and we know that someone else adopted her brother. We always thought she was a husky as they idiots told us that both the parents were huskies, but we are fairly sure given the size / shape / coat of the dad that maybe the dad was a malamute / mal X and mum was a husky (mum was definitley a husky, and Mish has the blue husky eyes, so there is defintley some in there, but she has the shape and tail of a malamute).

Regardless of what breed she is though, she is a beautiful girl and we love her to bits... however, I am so over vacuming EVERY SINGLE DAY when she throws her coat!

Oh I hear you! I bought a Dyson stick vacuum and I fill it every day with fur lately. I could vacuum twice a day. Thankfully it is only once a year for is and the rest of the time there's hardly any fur.

Is he one of Mutki's boys? She's a stunner  - lovely import!

Yes, he is one of Mutki's.

He's adorable, so funny and naughty and affectionate. He's also hilariously lazy sometimes.

Kody had his first coat blow just before Christmas. I was expecting to have to vacuum but our floors are all timber so there is no carpet for the fur to get into. It just made fluffy tumbleweeds all through the house that I could easily pick up. The cat fur makes more mess than his did!
