Late in the calendar year, Manon and Sandra became authorized AKC CGC evaluators as well as an evaluators for the AKC series of Tricks Titles. Maple Myst held a trial in Cumberland on November 25. This trial sold out quickly, and participants were enthusiastic about the ability to earn AKC tricks titles on their dogs right here in Ottawa. Our next event is planned for February 17, and more will be scheduled throughout 2018.
The last two additions of the year came of out of partnerships with Shadagrace Finnish Lapphunds and Ember Finnish Lapphunds. In December, Manon flew to Winnipeg to bring home Niklas (Shadagrace Myst o’er the Moon) who lives in the Haliburton area with Ted, Shirley and Lüka. Nikki, a rare domino color, is co-owned by MapleMyst and his forever family. Also in December, MapleMyst welcomed Finnigan, Ember’s Dragon in the Myst, who is out of Calaban’s Armahani Flash and Shadagrace Because I’m Happy. Finnigan is a half-brother to Rüka. He is co-owned by MapleMyst and lives with his forever family in the Toronto area.
