No one can post a puppy picture without other lurkers saying "Awwwwww, ain't that cute." Please post pictures of your own celtic canine puppy. I'll start by sending you to my blog to see the members of the Stardancer Historical Freight Dogs litter - at http://oldschoolak.blogspot.com/2008/09/wo...y-pictures.html

Good morning,

You have a beautiful group of puppies. It looked like Polaris's tale was docked. It didn't look like the others were, so I wondered why his was. Just curious. I think Midnight Sun was the one that spoked to me the most.

Such sweet looking pups! But more than anything, I love the names you selected for them. So unique and meaningful. So you breed the dogs to sell or do you keep them yourself?

Good morning,

It looked like Polaris's tale was docked.  It didn't look like the others were, so I wondered why his was. 

It's just the angle he was standing to the camera when I tripped the shutter. His tail is just as long as everyone else's.

Although puppies of this caliber are quite valuable, I have personal issues with the concept of selling puppies. It's probably because I have so much heartburn with commercial breeding operations (aka "puppy mills") that contribute so heavily to the euthanization lists in dog pounds and animal shelters throughout the U.S.

It's quite possible this may be the only breeding I'll ever do. I own the sire, and a mushing friend in Dillingham owns the b*tch. Both are truly exceptional lead dogs with traits we each felt would improve the type (freighting sled dogs) and the breed (Alaskan huskies) and give us puppies we wanted for our own teams. My friend sent Lucky (the Mom) to me through the summer to breed and whelp. I have much better access to veterinary resources than does he.

Thus far the puppies seem to exhibit the traits we were breeding for. They are long in body and leg ("rangy" is the term mushers use), very bold and curious and there isn't a "shy" puppy in the litter. Although impossible to say for sure, all the signs are that the three smallest ones will top out in the neighborhood of 60 to 70 lb, and the three larger ones around 70 to 80 lb., the "perfect" size for the type of dog mushing we do.

Half of the puppies will be going home with my buddy on Saturday, and the other half staying with me for my team.

I'll be keeping Cassiopeia, Capella and Orion (the most bold and adventuress of the litter). Star, Son and Polaris will all go to my friend's team. It just happened that we had half & half sexes in the litter and I need more females to balance out the estrogen/testosterone levels in my kennel, and my buddy prefers males. My choices are relatively smaller than their siblinges, but my friend needs larger, bulkier dogs as he lives a subsistence lifestyle and needs his team for hauling firewood (LOTS of firewood), hunting, running his trap-line and all the other day-to-day transportation tasks that are a part of living and raising a family in the bush.

Having my big dog-buddy Torus come into my yard at the same time my big "bush rat musher" buddy was looking for a male from somewhere outside his kennel to prevent having to line-breed his dogs was really a matter of the "stars lining up" in the Universe. Such opportunities are pretty rare and I consider the opportunity a gift from the spirits.

I do not like the idea of selling puppys and kittens because of how many are in the shelter. Yet I am glad some people do it for the love of the breed!

We have a puppy named Sai, half lab ha;f samoyed! I am not yet able to get a picture here so enjoy this link that shows him being all puppy!!
