He went big (1,3 km from urban to rural area, on 1 hour cooled trail), I was again the weaker one even mentally as well as physically (1,5 weeks after covid), and in one point I nearly gave up....but thanks for the supporting team followed us, we found our last remains of our energies...and we made it!

 Our special gal arrived from Canada, welcome

Highrails Ocean Breeze "Runa"

We have been working hard on our long-awaited dream, which was the union of a beautiful bi-color puppy and a puppy from the continent (USA/Canada) where our beloved breed comes from. On 11/11/2022, the unbelievable happened and a really beautiful litter was born in Canada at the highly regarded breeder's Brenda Aelick /Highrails kennel/ home. Brenda has been dealing with Aussies since 1986. She was so nice and open about us and has helped us from the beginning. It wasn't an easy road, but we managed it in the end.

Runa's pedigree is full of great names (rarely used in Europe). Beauty combined with working qualities.

We look forward to what the future brings us in the show ring as well as in sports.

Runa starts her "carrier" here in Hungary, and later she will join to the Soradel kennel gang, to Nadesda Krass's home. Based on our plans, we will welcome back her to Hungary for works, exams and shows.

11.02.2023. FEHOVA Winterdogshow, Budapest

TEA des Ptits Berges en Terre Bio "Phoebee" - very promising 2 in puppy class.

We are so proud of her, as she is not in an easy situation as a bicolor. She acted like a pro in the ring, her focus was pehomenal, and her elegance always amazes me.... I still have to learn stack her better, tho.

Congrats to her owner, Agnes Kresak, and her breeder Mylene Lhermitte.
