Yesterday we celebrated our first Kahnawake Summer Powwow. Many of those who own puppies from our kennel, and some people who are interested in our kennel activities, came for a visit. We watches the huskies playing and tussling, enjoyed good food and good conversation. Later that evening, when those who had to take a long ride home (like Sammy and Zelda and their family), we watched a thunderstorm with hard rain and hail from our sunroom.
It was too hot for a real walk altogether, but the dogs had lots of fun in the yard anyway. At first, Sisko made clear to the males that he is the boss, and he stopped Sammy and Koda from brawling in his own cool manner.
When Nukka arrived, all C’babies got quite excited – but Koda even more. He worked har, trying to convince her of his charm and even forgot about his beloved Opra.
Ezri finally laid down in the middle of the lawn, lost in thought, smiling. Not until Nukka’s master started to play the dog whisperer, she joined the pack, sitting around the man with the magic pockets.
In the evening dogs and People were all happy and tired. After the guests had left and the gang of four had gone to sleep in the house, Helmut and I sat down on the terrace, got comfy and enjoyed a glass of wine. This way, Helmut celebrated one of the loveliest birthdays in his life.
A year ago, on Thursday, November 24th 2016, I spend hours together with my beloved Kira. The day before, she came into labor. we were sitting on the couch and I comforted her. I kept to the vet’s orders, saying, “Try to do nothing. Just keep calm and be there. She knows what to do.”
And that is exactly what happened. Between midnight and very early morning she gave birth to three gorgeous pups, litle lumps of sweetness of which Kira took care with great love.
Even though three pups make a small litter, we were really hapy. This way we were able to raise our first husky babies with great care and ease and enjoy the time with the little ones.
Antonius (Bubbles), Alban (Sammy) and Almudis (Nukka) enjoyed a happy and wild childhood and had a great in the snow, too. Daddy Doby (Wahttp://Almudisterfall Velnio Malunas) can be proud of those cute little bits of mischief.
All three were adopted by loving sportive families, two didn’t even go far, and one lives in the Black Forest. Bubbles’ adventures, collected by his mommie, make up Bubbles’ Baby Blog (in German).
It was a wonderful time, raising those three little fellows, and we are hoping for a second litter in spring or early summer next year – news will be published in good time.
Princess Nukka (Almudis of Kahnawake – Best Baby in Specialty Sjhow twice!) comes out as best of both worlds. She has the perfect structure, movement and head of her daddy Doby (Waterfall Velnio Malunas) and all the qualities of a lively outdoor dog from her mom Kira (Zausel’s Red Rose). She loves to be outside all the time – even at night!
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.
