Born April 15, 2005, Aurie is a very sweet tempered girl who often leaves the pack at playtime to score extra cuddling with us! She is also
a very solid member of the WinterStarz sled dog team. She is a
versatile, hard working girl who pulls well in several positions on the
hitch. She achieved her WTD (Working Team Dog) title in Spring 2007
and her WPD (Working Pack Dog) title in 2010. She earned her WLD
(Working Lead Dog) title in 2011, earning the last leg at the 2011
CrowDitarod here at WinterStar Farm.
took most of the 2008-9 sledding season off to raise a litter of 8
puppies sired by Charger. We are very excited to
welcome two of Aurie's daughters, Penny and Sassy, to our pack. Aurie
has completed Beginner Obedience and has shown in
some conformation/breed shows, including Brace class with her daughter
Penny. Aurie's daughter Sassy was recognized as the #1 Puppy Bitch in the Midwest in 2009, by the Alaskan Malamute Club of America.
her 2009 litter of puppies was so nice, we re-bred Aurie to Charger in
late May of 2010. The breeding was successful and Aurie's litter of
seven puppies, 4 boys and 3 girls, arrived on August 1, 2010. We kept
one boy, Huck, from this litter. See below for some pictures and a movie of Aurie's puppies; also see the Puppy Photos Page for more photos, videos and movies.
We bred Aurie one last time in March 2011 to Sue and Roy Fuller's dog Sunny; she delivered four beautiful pups May 4, 2011, three by C-section! See the Puppies Page for more details. From this litter, we kept a beautiful boy, Western Star.
has been genetically tested for long coat and is S/S, which means she
does not carry the long coat gene and cannot produce long coat puppies.
We will not be breeding her anymore due to her increasing age, and all
the great puppies she has produced already!
Aurie had three lovely litters for us, and has now been spayed. She was spayed before the Polyneuropathy DNA test was available, so we did not test her for PN. Her offspring that have been tested have all been normal.
