WE HAVE PUPPIES!!!!!!
I am so happy to say Nook gave birth to four beautiful puppies on Feb 11, 2018. They are all doing well and I will be posting lots of pictures. This is a repeat breeding between GR Ch. Keikewabic Nanuke and Ch. Sanekats Regina Big Boy “SUKA” who is owned and loved by Maureen Andersen of Keikewabic Kennels. I was so happy with ALL the pups from the previous breeding I just had to do it again. GR Ch. TyOhni’s Keikewabic Yuki came from that breeding along with TyOhni’s Keikewabic Saranik who is an international champion in Mexico and TyOhni’s Keikewabic Halo Tia who is a Champion in Hungary. The other five puppies from that litter all live in wonderful pet homes with owners who love them.
October 2017 ALASKAN MALAMUTE CLUB OF AMERICA NATIONAL SPECIALTY
I attended the Alaskan Malamute Club of America National Specialty in Ohio this past October. It was an adventure from beginning to end. I took my three year old boy Gr Ch TyOhni’s Keikewabic Yuki. We decided to take the train from Sioux Lookout, Ontario to Toronto and then meet Kathleen Corkum to travel the rest of the way in a rental car. When we got to Toronto we were lucky enough to be met by my friends Helen Sibley and Jane Whitear. I even got to do a little shopping at RENs. Spent the night and then off to Ohio. I met Kathleen the next morning and she had her beautiful Passion girl with her. We chatted all the way and got there in no time.
I was in awe from the time I got there. I had never seen so many Malamutes. To me they were all beautiful. Watching the weight pull was impressive and I really enjoyed it. The Obedience and Agility were so fun to watch. Malamutes really can do anything! In the conformation ring they all really seemed to really want it. I enjoyed sitting at ringside and watching the most. I did get in the ring with Yuki and Shaka (Keikewabic’s Krystalmar TyOhni) who I co own with Helen Sibley and Maureen Anderson. Both boys did their best and made me proud with their behaviour in the big strange ring and so many new things. I wanted to partake in everything while I was there so I had Yuki in for the blood draw to bank his DNA for future research. We also participated in a measurement comparison program where I got to meet Nancy and Bob Russell I was thrilled to do this. Yuki got his Canine Good Citizen title while we were there and was a perfect gentleman everywhere we went. I met so many wonderful people and everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I had a great roommate in Kathleen and we got along great. She introduced me to so many wonderful people. It makes it so much easier when you have someone introducing you. You get to meet so many more people. I was lucky enough to have many people doing that for me. My good friend Maureen Anderson was busy working from home to make sure I met many new friends. Everyday people would come up to me and say they were her friend and introduced themselves. People from all over the world were there. The Specialty Committee did an amazing job and kept us busy all day for the whole week.
I want to congratulate the many Canadians who participated and did so well at this Specialty. Many of our members and/or their Malamutes did very well with the ribbons. I felt very lucky to watch Kathleen’s beautiful Passion win her Best Veteran in Specialty.
Then it was time to head home. I got to spend a couple more days with Helen and Jane in Toronto. We had some great meals and visited with more wonderful “dog people” people.
Yuki loved the train and was a great ambassador for our breed while he visited with everyone. If you ever have to travel anywhere with your dog I highly recommend Via Rail. They treated us so well and the long ride was very enjoyable.
I’m so glad I went!
