Alex and Joey's Jewel and Sasha
Katie and Pam's "Mau, Milo... and Meika"
"My dog does this amazing thing where he just exists
and makes my whole life better because of it"
~ Borrowed from Katie's FB page
Pam and her daughter, Katie got "Mau" from our very first litter of Mini Huskies. Then they came back to us and got "Milo" sometime later... Eventually, they decided to ad our fluffy little girl "Meika" to the pack. Each of these pups have their very own distinct personality. While they love them all, I think Mau will always have a special place in their hearts.

Edmundo and Norie's
I think this experience is important to relate... Sometimes the size of the dog is understably very important. In most cases people can't have a dog that is too big. In this case, Ana was very much wanting a dog that would be big enough to go on hikes with her. Tellie's parents are Kiara and Charlie. It seemed that Tellie would be just perfect and so they chose her at about 3-4 weeks old. As she got older we could tell that she was not going to be as big as we thought. The day came for them to pick her up and I told them that personality wise, she was just what they wanted... a friendly, sweet, outgoing dog. But size was the problem. It was now apparent that she would be just 10-12 lbs (the size of her Grampa). I felt super bad because they trusted me to make sure they got the best puppy for them. So, the olnly thing I could do was give them the option of getting back on the waiting list, or give them a refund. We ended up letting them take her for the night so they could decide if size was as important as personality. As you can see, Tellie's personality outshined her dinky size. She's still a puppy but she hasn't disappointed them yet.
From Ana: 10/14 - "Decided to keep her! She has such a great personality, and we love her no matter her size...." 10/21 - "Tellie is getting along with the other 2 dogs...The Mini Ausie and Tellie are becoming good friends." 10/23 - "Also, I'd be happy to be a reference if needed!! We love Tellie. :)) I'd also like to add how helpful and kind you were through the whole process..."
From Sheila and Zephyr
12/15 - "He is doing so great! He's so smart, we know sit, shake, and lay down! Loves belly rubs, sleeps with us, and is pretty much potty trained, runs to the door to let us know!"
4/4 - "Jaxon is loving life! Lots of walks/hikes and snuggles all the time. He does have separation anxiety when I leave for work ): We've been working on this."
It's been so much fun being able to see this little guy grow and become such beloved member of this family. Nick and Luke were just two little boys with their pup. Now look how they have all 3 grown! Thanks for sharing!
...We named her Miku (美空), meaning "Beautiful Skies" in Japanese. My number one hobby is landscape photography. I wish to witness many beautiful skies with Miku. She weighs 28 pounds now and is doing very well. She gets along very well with Yume, our 7-year-old full-size female husky. They do everything together. Miku follows me everywhere I go, including the bathroom! She loves to snuggle with me, Yume, or my husband, whomever is available. She looks blissfully happy when she is being petted. She is very smart and very sweet.
Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to become parents of such a special puppy.
Angela's "Keva" & "Kovu"
These two are both from Kira's very first litter. Keva weighs just 12-1/2 lbs and her brother is 27 lbs. What a difference!!!
I have been thinking about you and how I haven't sent any new pictures in a while....If I could have a herd of these little guys I would, and I would only come to you. When I was looking for them, I did not really want one. It was for my husband he always wanted one and as you know I wanted to get him one for his birthday. I think now how wrong I was. Keva and Kovu are my world. They are the best dogs I have ever had. I Have attached a few more pictures for you.

Veronica's "Ding Dang"
Ding Dang has ended up being such a good girl for Veronica. She is Kiara and Moon River's baby. She was predicted to be about 17 pounds and she is about 18 pounds. So that was pretty close. Veronica is so pleased with Ding Dang that she hopes to get a second puppy from us in the future.
Amy & Steve's “Briar”
Briar is doing great- the vet says he's a healthy healthy boy... Briar has been hiking and snowshoeing with us a bunch and he goes jogging with Steve or I 3-4 times per week. Briar is very active, a great addition to our family, and we love our little boy. Him and Apollo are the best of friends. Hope you like the picture I attached! ~ Amy
Briar has become such a huge part of our family and I could not imagine life without him. He is so much fun, the perfect size for anything! He loves hiking, cuddling, and playing with our Alaskan husky Apollo. We really do love him so much and are so thankful that Kathy brought him into our lives.
“Kathy was an outstanding breeder to work with. It was my first time getting a dog thru a breeder online. Boomer was two time zones and 2000 miles away. Kathy met me at the airport at 4 am to make the transfer happen. She is very caring as a breeder and made it very easy on me. Boomer has been a god send to our family. We have 4 kids but Boomer makes 5. He is definitely one of the family and a hit in our lake community. Thanks, Kathy!“

Chanel's “Lolly” 14 lbs
Lolly is wonderful. She has more than warmed up to us. ...other than the usual puppy stuff, she is the perfect pup. She is incredibly smart and is very receptive to training. She knows 10 tricks so far and probably 20 commands... I can't imagine life without Lolly. She goes to work with me and is PERFECT for traveling. ~Chanel
She's great! Such an incredible little dog. I realized why we had such a rough start. Since she was a bit older, she must have bonded with your family and the other pups. But boy o boy is she bonded with us now! … Not sure if it's her or the breed, but she is so intelligent. She knows SO many words. I teach her new ones all the time. You can talk to her and she tries to listen and understand. ~Chanel
Good morning Kathy! I just wanted to let you know that Kibo is doing very very well. He's so smart and knows so many commands. We are in puppy school with him and have had one class so far but he's already learned so many at home...He's such a handsome sweet baby. He's everything and more you said he would be. He's such an amazing gift. Thank you.” ~ Dawn
Kathy, he is pretty much potty trained! No accidents in weeks. He rings the bell with his nose and sits by the door. He is so smart! He loves running errands and sits calmly in the shopping cart and everyone comes over to love on him. He is so special. ~ Dawn
Note from Kathy:
This guy blew away our growth estimate chart! At 11 weeks we charted his estimated adult weight to be 17.2 lbs. He ended up being over 24 lbs.
“Kathy was wonderful to work with. She is quick to respond and really takes great care of the pups! She sent me updates of Ember every week until I was able to bring her home! We still can’t go anywhere without people stopping to give her attention. Ember has such a loving & friendly personality. I can’t imagine my life without her!” ~ Kelsey
Hope your trip into Seattle went well! My goodness Meeko is so much fun! The first day he was a little quiet, I'm sure all the newness was a lot for him to absorb. We had a football tournament this weekend, and took him out to the field he met tons of new people, and made new friends. He is extremely well behaved for a puppy, he had a great time with my friends Shiba Inu, they are going to be best buds....Thanks again for such a wonderful puppy,.. I'll continue to keep in touch and provide updates along the way.
Happy, proud new papa,
Hey Kathy! ...Meeko is so awesome... doesn't really have a relationship yet with Ellie, but he's very curious and sooo jealous. He used to go everywhere I went, but now he follows baby and Emily around. he's gained a few pounds, around 30lbs... he looks like a mini malamute now. Best dog ever... I'm so glad we were able to find you. ... contact me anytime! ~ Matt
That's awesome that you're building a website... I could not have been more thrilled with the process of buying a puppy from you. From start to finish, the process was extremely professional, and we would happily purchase another from you. We absolutely love Meeko, he is an excellent companion, guardian, and valued member of our family. ~ Matt
Candy's “Timber” 26 lbs
“He's extremely smart and is really such a lovebug.” (Regarding behavior) “Mostly he still gets excited when we have company and jumps up on people and is extremely strong so you kinda have to brace yourself when he's coming. But he's very friendly and loves to play fetch. He knew that when he came from you. It was great!” ~ Candy
“You might want to try a spray bottle with water and a bit of vinegar. Whenever he jumps up, say “NO!” and then spritz him with it. Do it every time and he will eventually get the idea... Be sure to praise him when he does good.”
From Kiara & Moon River
I wanted to let you know that Mika is doing great. She has been traveling with us and is so well behaved and sweet. :-) :-) ...Thank you so much for selling her to me, she's my absolute favorite.
