Comet taking 4th in the 2005 Working Dog Showcase

Comet took 4th place in the 2005 National Specialty Working Dog Showcase, at 10.5 years of age.

Comet was our first malamute. He was a tireless and dynamic worker, excelling at everything he did. We learned so much from him and will always be thankful that we were able to share 12 years with him. We will always love and miss him.

Glacier showing a beautiful free-baiting stack

This was the first of many backpacking trips with Glacier and our other dogs. Glacier had always proven himself a willing worker, whether backpacking, weightpulling, sledding, showing, or doing obedience or therapy work. He is missed more than we can say.

Hope with her daddy Illamar at the 2000 National Specialty

Hope looks a great deal like her sire, Canadian Ch. Mighty Illamar. Here, you can see the family resemblance. This certainly pleases us as we fell in love with Illamar the first time we saw him!

Hope was our first female, and again, we learned a lot. She has a wonderful sense of humor, loves to please (except when she doesn't), and will do almost anything for food. A true malamute!

Penny in full coat and showing well

Penny is our foundation bitch and has proven herself to be a very capable, excellent mother. She has a wonderful temperament and a strong desire to please. She's done everything that we've asked of her...except weight pulling. That's ok!

Leesa and Asik at a puppy play date

Asik (Inuit for "dear one") is from Penny's first litter and displays many of the best qualities of her sire and dam. She has a playful, energetic, sweet temperament. She loves to please, but only if she doesn't have to work at it too hard. She has a lot of drive, and she's turning into a very capable lead dog!

Ixarri at almost 4 months

Ixarri (Inuit for "lead dog") is from Penny's second litter and possesses all the things that I wanted from this breeding with Tekoya: good pigment, dark eyes, beautiful coat and tail, size and substance, beautiful feet, and a wonderful temperament. He is a calm, confident, curious, playful young dog. He's proving himself in the show ring, as well as on the trail!

Ixarri placed in the ribbons every time he showed at his first National Specialty. He's 7.5 months old in this photo.
