I have been breeding & exhibiting large breeds for over 30 years & fell in love with the Alaskan Malamute 15years ago. I then went on the hunt for my foundation pair which I imported in 2003 from the Jungla Negra kennels in Spain, with my foundation male 'Rafa' BVISS/BVIS/RBISS Gwinner Lapema Star De Jungla Negra ShCM being a combination of 2 hugely influencial kennels in Europe, namely Jungla Negra & Del Biagio. My foundation girl 'Fibi' BVIS Gorkeane De Jungla Negra was mostly Jungla Negra lines & we will be eternally grateful to these amazing dogs for giving us the base of our successful kennel.
We have been lucky enough to have some success in the show ring & making some breed records along the way with our fabulous dogs.
My daughter Kerry & her husband Mike handle the dogs for me in the show ring now due to my disability & Kerry is now co-owner of the kennels to ensure a bright & long future for Lapema.
On the 17th our world here at Lapema was absolutely rocked by the very sudden, yet peaceful passing of the Lapema founder, owner, my Mum & best friend in the world Pamela Wilkinson. I now know the meaning of true loss & pain. The dogs were mine & Mum's outlet, our hobby, our joy, our sadness, our everything, so to have to go it alone without my sidekick & partner in crime is devastating. Things will never be the same again but I know that we must carry on & do Mum proud whatever it takes. Lapema is now Mum's legacy & she was such an amazing woman that I will not & cannot ever let that be forgotten. I miss you Mum every single day, you were & are still my world & I hope that wherever you are, that you have some peace & can be free from the pain that life dealt you, although strong & selfless & I probably didn't say it enough when you were here, I know at times you struggled & I hope you can now find the peace that you deserve. I love you Mum, everything I do is now in your honour & memory.
