Kacey with Oreo winning BEST IN GROUP AND OPEN IN SHOW!!
Although Kimyata is a relatively new kennel, I have been active in the Dog World for many years… My Mum has been breeding and exhibiting Cavalier King Charles Spaniels since 1989, so dogs and exhibiting was second nature to me.
I have been exhibiting dogs since I was 10 and won my first Junior Handlers on my first outing into the ring (10 years & 2 weeks)...qualifying me for "Pal Junior Handlers Final" at the Brisbane Royal. I did very well in my first year taking out many first places and even a 3rd place at the Toowoomba Royal. The show bug had bitten me but not the Junior handling bug and I continued to exhibit my mothers dogs occasionally.
Mulan & Kacey - 2000
Mulan was our first Japanese Spitz. I had wanted a Japanese Spitz since I saw a photo of one in a dog book that I got for my 10th birthday. When I saw this beautiful 'white Spitz', I knew I had to have one. Four years later I got my first girl - Ch. Snowmagic Silva Angel or "Mulan" to her friends. Mulan was around 5 months old when we got her. We were lucky enough to purchase her in part ownership with Leah Kimmet, as we had someone with experience to introduce us to the breed and help us with any other problems we may have had. It wasn't until Mulan came along that the Showing bug bit me hard and I was addicted.
Kimyata's first litter - 2000
I bred my first Japanese Spitz litter in September 2000. I was on hand to help Mulan bring 4 healthy bundles of joys into the world. From this litter "Kanya" Ch. Kimyata Kiss This, owned by Leah Kimmet of Havenden Japanese Spitz, took out Baby in Group in Both Championship and Open Shows at her second show and that was only the beginning...she is a Multi-Group winner also taking 1st place in QLD Classics and Sweepstakes. She was destined to be my first home-bred Champion.

In 2002, we were lucky enough to be one
of the first breeders in Australia to use the newly import
Ch. Okkoyomas Cola D’ Becca (Imp NWY) over our foundation
bitch “Mulan”. This litter proved to be one
of Kimyata’s most successful to date, producing
2 Australia Champions Aust Ch. Kimyata Puddle
O Mud and Aust Ch. Kimyata Butterfly Effect.
Aust Ch. Kimyata Puddle O Mud is currently our most consistent
Japanese Spitz to date, winning many accolades and doing
me proud. He is a Championship show Best Exhibit in Group
winner and Royal Best of Breed winner taking RU Best of
Breed at the Toowoomba Royal 2004, Best of Breed Toowoomba
Royal 2005 and Res Challenge Dog Brisbane Royal Show 2005...
In 2008 "Oreo" beat out stiff competition from
all over Australia (breed entry 26) to take Reserve Dog
CC at the Melbourne Royal Show. In 2006 Oreo has set off
on a year long trip to obtain his New Zealand Championship
and returned home in 2007 as a New Zealand Champion, leaving
behind in New Zealand a number number of his children..

2002 also saw another new addition to our family, the beautiful "Uisce" Glendaruel Chihu Tsuki. "Uisce" came to us from our good friend Pam Taylor in Victoria and is Mulan's half sister sharing the same father Ch. Itoshi Mista Bishi. Uisce also brings to our kennel some old but beautiful lines including the stunning Ch. Slaboda's Tropical Viking (Imp. SWD) and the famous Ch. Lacebark Sno Anastacia. Uisce was shown as a baby with lovely results but after a scare never made it back into the ring.
2004 saw the introduction of some very exciting lines, with the arrival of the independant Aust Ch. Havenden Toy Story sired by Ch. Okkoyomas Cola D’ Becca (Imp NWY) out of Ch. Noidens Quite a Beauty (Imp SWD). “Seryphim” is a Multi in Group and Best of Breed winner, taking Reserve Challenge bitch at the Toowoomba Royal 2005 (from puppy class). Seryphim is only one of two bitches ever conceived through this exceptional combination!! In 2006 after a year of planning, Seryphim was leased by Coleisha in Tasmania and was mated to the very prominent Ch. Hindcross Taisho (Imp UK) producing 4 stunning babies with 2 going on to become Australian Champions. Kimyata & Coleisha are one of only a few breeders who have been granted the privilege of using "Taisho" at stud, “Taisho” has been at restricted stud since his first coming to Australia.

2004 also saw the final litter from my foundation bitch Mulan; she was mated to the gorgeous Grand Ch. Daesdaemar Lovers Lane. This litter produced 2 males, one of these being the stunning Kimyata Love Actually. Kodah never took to the show ring, but I do not need others to tell me just how special Kodah is. Kodah has gone on to produce 4 Australian Championship. His daughter Aust Ch. Kimyata Spirited Away, owned by Beryl Emery and Liz Houldsworth, "Cammie" is a Best in Group winner, Multiple class in group and a CLASS IN SHOW winner with sister Aust Ch. Kimyata Drama Queen, owned by Leah Kimmet, being a multiple Best of Breed and Class in Group winner. I am very proud of these girls.

The Next Generation…
After careful breeding Kimyata is proud to introduce our FIRST litter of 3rd Generation Kimyata's!! The main aim of this litter was to bring together all the lines we had obtained over the years into one special puppy... and from this litter we kept our ever cheeky and absolutely stunning "Cyan" Aust CH. Kimyata Magic Dirt. "Cyan" is sired by our very special boy "Oreo" Aust/NZ Ch. Kimyata Puddle O Mud and has had great success in the ring taking many Best of Breed over strong competition and also winning a CLASS IN SHOW. "Cyan" is just a gorgeous girl who is loved greatly by myself and my family.

Our First Import …
In 2008 we welcomed "Oreo's" Grandson Jonja Finders Keepers "Maui" to our home. “Maui” is just the most gorgeous little fellow… My first impressions of him was a demanding bark to be let out of the crate and then just a bundle of fearless energy that came tumbling out… he also gives the most gorgeous little snuggles!! His mother is the result of a mating done when Oreo was in New Zealand in 2006... Oreo's daughter "Fudge" is Multiple Best in Group and Class in Show winner not to mention Multiple Best of Breed winner from the Baby Class under International judges... what more do I need to say! It was always my wish to have something to represent Oreo's adventures in New Zealand and now this wish has been complete. "Maui" also brings some new and exciting lines to my kennel as well as some more familiar ones.
Maui has done exceptionally well in the show ring to date and is a Multi CLASS IN SHOW & Class in group winner. He will be one to watch... Big Thank-you goes to Jane Faulkner for allowing me to have little “Maui” and sending me such a promising little fellow.

So that's the Kimyata story this far... I still consider myself new to this gorgeous breed, because no matter how many years we put into memorising pedigrees and selective breeding to create that ideal type, there are always more learning curves ahead.
There are many people I would like to thank that have been good friends and a great source of knowledge over the years. Thank you to Beth Coleman (Coleisha), Pam Taylor (Glendaruel) and in particular Lois Klinger (Snowmagic) and Leah Kimmet (Havenden) whom without I would have never found this beautiful breed.
