Operational - Avalanche
Wanaka / Cardrona
Anna Easthope and eight year old Rua were first operational in 2002. Labelled by Cardrona Ski Patrol as a bit of a nerd, Rua does things by the book, clinical, minimum fuss and unfazed. Typically after a hard day of searching Rua's coat is spotless and not a single hair is out of place. Rua's one year old niece Ra first gained operational status in 2010. Ra can only be described as the chalk to Rua's cheese. Ra likes grand entrances, big scenes and she is far too busy to keep her coat mud free. Both hounds share a love of searching, squeaky duck toys and, weirdly enough, fruit. Rua's weakness is Apples while Ra's favorite is Bananas.....appropriate really.
