Gorgeous Tio!

There are some new pictures of  Tio (Benedictus of Kahnawake), who sired our litter F, published on his page by courtesy of Victoria Rüf & Fabian Willi (wildembrace.photo).

We are very proud of him and we certainly will have him sire another litter with one of our girls, because Opra‘s three little F’babies are growing beautifully.

Tio is loved, spoiled and owned by Katharina Lanz & Paul Hübner (Vannomaden), living in the Bregenz Forest near Lake Constance in Vorarlberg/Austria. He is approved for breeding by the DCNH e.V., Germany, and is open for stud services under the rules of the FCI and associated clubs.

Conan – Club Junior Winner and Junior Champion(DCNH)

Together with his best friend Markus Conan took part in the Club Winner Show 2020 in Wetzlar-Dutenhofen. Judge Regina Blessing (DE) judged him excellent and awarded him the title Club Junior Winner 2020 (Jugendclubsieger).

On March 1st 2020, Conan already had been entered for the Felsenmeer Cup in Hemer, and he excellently had won his class under judge Claus-Peter Fricke (DE). Therefore Conan has 2 J-CACs for each, DCNH (specialty club) and VDH (national kennel club).

Because of the pandemic almost all shows are cancelled this year, and getting a jCh title is almost impossible under these conditions. So the DCNH board decided that for the time being, the title of JCh(DCNH) will be awarded with two CACs as well.

HEnce, Conan of Kahnawake is now Junior Champion(DCNH) and may add the prefix JCh(DCNH) to his name!

Conan and Markus, you 2 are a dream team!

We are very proud of you!

We got a logo!

The Vannomaden, a young creative agency, just left a strong mark on the Siberian Huskies of Kahnawake – and we are totally happy with that log which clearly expresses all that is important to us: the natural wildness and self-reliance of the breed named Siberian Husky, the love and care we give to our dogs and especially to our pups, and last but not least our kennel patron, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the patron saint of Canada, born in the state New York, died in – yes! – Kahnawake on the shore of Saint Lawrence river.

Working with the Vannomaden, particularly with Katharina Lanz was great fun, mails and talks were going in both directions, always constructive and productive. Colors and a theme were found easily. It’s always a pleasure to work with professionals who really love their job – thank you! And we can’t wait to meet you again – and Tio, the ringleader of litter B!

Let’s go ahead together with new projects!

Weekend Show Tour

A straining and exciting weekend: 1,300 km (appr. 810 m) to drive, summer heat on Saturday and continous rain on Sunday, a family reunion and a lot of support from friends, no place on the rostrum but excellent results for Kira (Zausel’s Red Rose) and her first daughter Nukka (Almudis of Kahnawake).

At the Saar-Pfalz-Schau (Specialty Show DCNH, Saturday, June 24th, 2017) Nukka got “Very Promising” from breeding judge Hassi Assenmacher-Feyel (DE) and was placed second in Puppy Class (VP2 /2). Kira got “Excellent” and was placed second in Open Class (Exc 2 /2). Since I am a rookie in breeding, I was only out for excellen results for both girls, thus I am happy with what they achieved.

Besides we had a happy family reunion that day. Sammy (Alban of Kahnawake) came to the show with his family to support his mom and sister, just like Bubbles (Antonius of Kahnawake) did from afar!

From the Rhine valley we went across the country to Munich to enter a joint dog show of the VDH Bavaria on the Harness Racing Track in Daglfing (Sunday, June 25th, 2017). Breeding judge Maria Grazia Miglietta (IT) rated Nukka “Very Promising” in Puppy Class and Kira “Excellent”, she was placed 3rd in a strong competition. Both girls reached the targets I had set – rookie me happy again!

I am sorry, there are no pictures on the show! On Saturday I forgot to tell someone, on Sunday it was all raining. Hence, I have only some snapshots to show.

After Grooming

Sincere thanks are given to Nukka’s family for entrusting their baby to me over the weekend, Angela Tagliaferri (Lagotto Romagnolo Accompagniatore) for perfectly grooming the girls, Simone Ebardt-Heidt (Siberian Huskies of Savannah Town) for sheltering us from the heat and the rain, to Sammy’s family for paying a visit at the show, and to Bubbles’ family for feeping fingers crossed.

Made My Day!

Happy puppy parents are people who happily share any news with the breeder, while the puppy grows up. Bubbles’ two-legged mom and dad have tricked the tooth-fairy and gave us one of his baby teeth. I can’t think of any better little present!

Thank you so much! 

Sammy Visiting

Yesterday, Sammy paid us a visit with his family, and we could see for ourselves that he turns out to be a handsome boy, funny and sweet as ever. Bubbles came along with his family, so Kira had the chance to enjoy her two sons playing together.

Later we took a nice walk in the beautiful valley of the Rosphe creek in the Burgwald area – and Sammy took a chance to bunk off with uncle Siko for a short while. But they returned quickly without doing any mischief. 😉

Most of the time, Sammy trotted side by side with Kira, showing he will be a sporting ace, when he has grown up. At the end of the walk both had a bath in one of the ponds along the track – apparently a perfect ending.

Boys are always out for messy places

Here comes Sammy!

Yesterday, I got a huge package of pictures of Sammy. Great pictures! He is turning out a really handsome boy and we are very proud of him!

Thank you for sharing these photos, dear Stegmann family! We wish you will continue to enjoy having this gorgeous fellow with you and hope to see you all soon!

Baby-sitting Bubbles

Bubbles’ mom loves to get exercise. Tough exercise. Since Bubbles himself is not that sporting yet, he comes for a visit now and then, so he is looked after and uncle Sisko can teach him some manners. At least that is Bubbles’ mom’s plan.

Bubbles is familiar with our garden for most of his life and loves to play here. And I love to take photos. So people xan see how handsome a boy he is becoming.
