Pregnancy confirmed! Beginning of February, if things go well, we will welcome another litter. We are happily expecting our D’babies. They will be Kira’s (Zausel’s Red Rose’s) third litter and the first pup from our stud Shakaar (Inner Vision Carbon Monoxide). We feel blessed and we are thrilled. 🙂
As of yet, we are planning two litters for next year.
The first one will – hopefully – be bred by Shakaar (Inner Vision Carbon Monoxide) out of Kira (Zausel’s Red Rose). With everything going well this litter will be born early February and some time around Easter they will have grown enough to move to their furever families.
We have not decided if Opra (Inner Vision Wolfblood) or Ezri (Zaltana Kissed By An Angel In Kahnawake) will be the dam of the second litter. Depending on the girls’ seasons these pups will be born in summer 2020. Also we have not decided yet who will sire this litter.
Perhaps, if there are enough people interested in a pup from our kennel, both girls will have a litter, so we might have three.
Please contact us as soon as possible. We would like to get to know the future families of our pups quite well. We are no back yard breeding puppy traffickers, instead we are looking for the best homes!
Now we can tell the world: our foundation bitch Kira is going to be a granny! Her daughter Nukka (Almundis of Kahnawake) will be having puppies, sired by Finn (Zaltana Heart On Fire of Savannah Town).
Finn was bred by Louise Franklyn (Zaltana kennel) and lives with Simone Ebardt-Heidt and Michael Ebardt (kennel of Savannah Town).
Many thanks to Simone and Michael to make this pairing possible. We cannot wait to see this litter being born.
We moved house. During the last three months we ran through all the procedures (and problems) you can think of. And finally we now are lucky enough that the local mayor lobbied for really fast internet connections in our community. Good things want to have it – now we are hoping for better mobile access soon.
But no more complaints! We and our huskies are living happily on a timberwork homestead with a nice parcel of land. And there is a lot of open range around us. The kennel has been approved again, and now we are hoping for pups from Finn (JCh Zaltana Heart On Fire of Savannah Town) out of Nukka (MBISB Almundis of Kahnawake). Nukka is co-owned by us and we are very happy that her family with whom she is living near our old home Marburg, and Finn’s owner Simone Ebardt-Heidt made this pairing possible for our litter C. Soon we will know if this plan will become real. 🙂
In April, Ezri will be checked for approval. All health test results are very promising, and she is maturing nicely, so that with the good Lord willing, it cannot go wrong.
Best of all – people are awsome around here. We quickly found friends among neighbors, young people helping with the dogs, and they call us by the name of the estate, Etjes, which really is an honor! 🙂
After visiting the vet, we know for sure we will have a litter B: at least five little whirlwinds are bustling about in Kira’s womb! As lively as they are, there is no doubt, they are fit as a fiddle.
The sire, Salai (Balance Master Speigas) was bred by Laura Baryte (Speigas Kennel, LIT) and is loved and owned by Monique van Ree-Hagg (NL). his sire Fizzy (Snowmist’s Quicksilver Speigas) is quite famous and just like the dam, Enya (Snowmist’s Rich Image) he was bred by Kim Ramey-LeBlanc (Snowmist Kennel, CAN).
Thank you, Monique, for making this litter possible!
The pedigree of the pups can be downloaded here for further inquiry:
With everything going smoothly the little ones will be born after March 16. Until then, the expectant mother will be spoiled with everything she loves – particularly nice walks.
Since we now have tons of contacts all around the world, it seemed reasonable to translate this website into an halfway-decent English. Well, I hope it is not too awkward – anyway, if you, dear reader, spot mistakes or painful phrases, please tell me! I am not a native English speaker, so I need to be corrected.
It feels just great to gain more fans and friends all over the world.
And here is our girl, growing “fat like an otter”, as a friend put it nicely, on our yesterday’s walk along the river Lahn in town, while the tires were changed. Less than four weeks to go and she is feeling fine. She just wants to lounge and sleep all day long – strange!
After a checkup at the vet it is confirmed:
We are expecting our first litter A around the first sunday of Advent.
- Sire: Ch. Waterfall Velnio Malunas (Ch. Jo-Kar’s Black Magic Mountain x Ch. Jo-Kar’s Mel for Velnio Malunas), bred by Ingrida Bielauskaite (Velnio Malunas kennels, Lith.), owned by Shirley Court (kennel Princess of Wales, FCI), hips exc, eyes clear.
In Doby’s pedigree you can find studs like BIS/MBISS AmCh Coventry’s Lioness Pride, MBIS/MBISS AmGrCh CanCh Coventry’s Peace Negotiator and MBIS/MBISS AmCh CanCh Highlander’s Austin Powers. His sire and dam both are bred by Karen Potts (Jo-Kar Siberians, NC/USA) whose breeding is based mostly on the work of Kathleen Kanzler (Innisfree Kennels)
- Dam: Zausel’s Red Rose (Coe’s Spirit Wolf of Zausel x Zausel’s Yankee Fox), bred by Sylvia Gusinde (Zausel’s Siberian Huskies, GER), owned by Iris and Helmut Kammerer (kennel of Kahnawake, FCI).
Many of Kira’s ancestors were bred by breeders who cherish the old foundations lines like Carol Dixon (Troika kennels, TX/USA), Jaana Sudensaaga (Kuuhaukun kennels, Finnland) and Roman Bobits (Celtic Wolves kennels, Austria). The Monadnock roots cannot be ignored in her structure and movements. Sylvia Gusinde is breeding with those lines as well as old working lines; Cwiok’s Call Me the Grinch (br. Denise Cwiok, Howl’n’Wind kennels, WI/USA), Kira’s great-grandfather on mother’s side, sired many litters in Ms Gusinde’s kennels. Kira’s sire, Coe’s Spirit Wolf of Zausel (breeder EvaMarie Coe, Coestars kennels, WI/USA) adds AmCh AmGrCh Odori Yuki Hotaru (breeder Ann Gregory, Snohomish kennels, NC/USA; owner Michelle Bigelow, Aoi Kita Kaze kennels, WI/USA) and the Snohomish-lines to her pedigree.
We are hoping for a colourful bouquet of very promising pups.
