"DENALI” .... oh boy, Denali! She and Gunny will surely steal your heart. Puppies can get no cuter than these two Sibes, who are littermates born in April 2005. We have no doubt this beautiful girl is destined to be a leader of merit--she's always first in everything they do... especially mischief! She and Gunny have the same Mom as Buzz... Here they are as both puppies and adults.
”GUNNY” is a nickname for "Shotgun." He and his (much smaller) pup sister Denali flew to us from their home in Alaska at just 12 weeks old. They love it here-- especially because they have each other to wrestle with all day. But the problem is... they grow bigger every single minute! This boy just sort of expoloded one day... he's already the biggest dog in our kennel now. You should see what BIG plus PUPPY acts like.
”ZOOMER, SABOT AND ROSIE” were born in March 2007, so you'll have to figure out how old they are now. Miss Denali and Mr. Czar fell in love and we now have three beautiful Siberians who are already great addtions to our teams! We had such fun "having babies" that we made a page full of pictures of them growing up... well, a page for each week of their lives for the first few months! Take a look on our puppy link to see them change and grow right before your eyes. They cannot wait to play with you!!
”ROSIE” was the first-born and was named by Linda's Mom. Guess what Linda's Mom's name is?!!! This girl is fiesty and the hardest player of all-- always eager to go and jump. Yet she's the smallest of the three--the runt? (Mom's name is Rosie.) Oh my gosh is she so cute... and as an adult she has energy to burn... always "wooing" for more attention.
"ZOOMER” actually Zoomed out of the womb... so Linda named her after her first "run." She was third born and dark and large. Very large! She has quite and distinct personality-- private and willing to give you attention only when she feels like it. Miss Independent Zoomer is very long in body and leg. Here she is as a pup and a 1.5 year old. on a run.
“FROSTBITE” or Frosty for short. He's perfectly described as our “Gentle Giant.” One of the biggest huskies in the clan, yet the most quiet and loving. Mostly Malamute, and strong as an ox, Frosty will lead the team on a great run or happily work from the wheel (last in line) position. He always gazes up at you with his “I just knew you loved me the best” look. His unique eyes grace the top of these pages.
Frosty went to live with our helper Jay--who fell in love with 'Ole Frost when mushing with him.
"IGGY" resembles a golden furry wiggly-piggy ...but that's not how he got his name. When he whines (loudly) for belly scratches, I look around the dog yard for a loose goose 'cause he sounds exactly like one! He goose calls. This guy is Bandit's brother and has the exact same body shape. Because he's so beautiful, most folks think he's a girl (don't tell him that.) BIG-IGG runs best in wheel or team position, especially next to Oreo. He goes with us to schools.
Our sweet Iggy passed in January, 2012.
“BUZZ” who received the full name, courtesy of our grandson, “Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue Puppy," isn't really a puppy anymore-- he is a DOG. This guy refuses to be left behind when we go for a run. He sprints next to an older dog while learning the ropes and training to be a leader. No other dog can play good enough or long enough for him. “Buzz Light” is the son of our oldest master Siberian, Czar. Buzz was adopted by a family from Baltimore... he's romping in the house and on the boat with two young boys!
"SMOKEY” is an adult, but also the silliest pup to ever romp in a kennel. When its dinnertime, actually anytime for that matter, he grabs his bowl and plays with it for hours. Every morning we awaken to the sounds of Smokey's toenails tapping on his stainless-steel bowl. Because water doesn't seem to want to stay in... this dog gets a second "play bowl" to bat around. Smokey has a distinctive black arrow on his nose, which is shared to a lesser degree by his half-siblings Blackie and Mickey. We miss you SMOKE!
"BLACKIE” also known as “Wackie-Blackie,” is an adult Siberian that does best running in wheel (last) position trying to catch up with the females. He shows off his good looks by prancing, dancing and, of course, telling hilarious jokes. His brother and sister, Trapper and Mickey, don’t mind a bit for they know they can pull just as strong. (As of April 2011 he is now a couch potato and jogging partner with a couple kooks in Pittsburgh.)
“CZAR”… also known as “The Big Man Around Campus” is our senior Sibe and he knows it. At fifteen years old now, Czar can do just about anything he wants~ except jump on his doghouse! He has the thickest coat, the shortest legs, and the deepest howl. We are amazed everyday as we watch him enjoying his second -childhood playing with his toys. He’s an expert puppy trainer and loves to romp with his son, Buzz.
”SABOT” was second-born... a boy! SABOT is short for Sabotage... and is used as a name for the "round" that comes barrelling out of a military tank when fired. Of course, Colonel Mike named this guy. He is a bit "slow" for a round... but will lay on his back for hours in motionless bliss. His sisters are Rosie and Zoomer... lots of photos of them on our "Puppies" page.
Sabot had some bad seizures and left us at a young age.
“MICKEY” looks like a baby mouse in a kennel full of huskies. Our tiniest Sibe of all—she proves herself by pulling harder and jumping higher than anyone. At about 37 pounds, she doubles as a lapdog, and always acts like one. As small as she is, Mickey has learned, however, to be heard—howling louder then her brothers Blackie and Trapper. ( She is now living in PA with a nice family and a Border Collie who herds her around the yard.)
“TRAPPER” looks dapper and surely is a yapper. Never seeming to quiet down, he can yip, howl, and whine for hours until you give him those beloved belly rubs. YappieTrappie loves to run anywhere in the team but lead. Be careful taking a picture with this guy—he’ll lick you and the camera. (He is now a beloved, spoiled couch potatoe with parents and their son near DC in MD. )
“BANDIT" is our very thick-furred, cuddly, fearless and monstrous leader of a Siberian. He's older but just now getting to be his best. Throw him a treat and he can catch it mid-air at five feet above his head. It takes alot to be a good leader, and Bandit's got it. He tries to lead us to China and back! His daughter is Thunder. Mr. Bandit and Oreo share a claim to fame.
“NELLIE” is our shelter sleddog… rescued from a shelter in Alaska. She’s about six now and shows her stuff around the kennel by teasing all the males. Nellie will sit with her back to you (in a huff) when she decides she’s been ignored too long. She’s one of the smallest dogs in the yard, but one of the smartest, especially when she runs. Because of her ceaseless exuberance, she’s earned the nickname “Whoa Nellie.” She now lives with a single adult female in PA... who give each other the best company and spoil each other rotten!
