Major was bred to Thick't in October 2013. Puppies due 12/16/13! X Thick't (Istari's Th' Plot Thickens) is the niece of TuVee, and we are thrilled that her owners, Helen and John Schultz of Tol Istari Kennels, agreed to lease her to us to breed to Major. Click here to see the pedigree of this litter, full of great working and show dogs! Thick't is a sweet girl who has done well in the show ring and on the sledding trails. She is two points away from earning her AKC Championship. We got to see her in action here at the farm at the 2013 CrowDitarod, where she sledded 10 miles on the Crow River as half of a 2-dog team! See pictures of Thick't in the slideshow below.
Thick't is the daughter of Trilo, GCH Istari's Epic Trilogee, WTD, WWPD, who was one of the Top 20 Alaskan Malamutes in conformation wins in 2011. Trilo was #8 overall and the #2 female! Thick't's sire is Ahnaka, CH Istari's Ahnaka of the Anduril, WWPD. Ahnaka was one of the past mals at Tol Istari Kennels, back in the 1990s. Frozen semen on Ahnaka which had been saved for over 10 years was used to produce Thick't. Click here to see Thick't's Pedigree.
Thick't has great health clearances - OFA Hips Excellent; OFA Elbows Normal; Eyes Normal; Polyneuropathy NN; ChD eligible under the retired AMCA system. Her DNA has been banked with CHIC for canine health research. Thick't's health clearances are posted on the OFA website here.
Update November 14: Thick't's ultrasound shows she is pregnant! Pictures of the pups taken by ultrasound are in the slideshow below. We hope to have pups from this breeding born at WinterStar Farm on December 16, 2013. Contact us if you are interested in a Winterstarz puppy.
Major and TuVee breeding. UPDATE June 2013 - TuVee was bred to Major three times, but we did not get a pregnancy. We are leasing TuVee's niece Thick't to breed to Major. Contact Us if you are interested in a puppy sired by Major.
We bred Major and TuVee in spring 2012, but did not get a pregnancy. Check back for updates and Contact Us if you are interested in a puppy from this breeding. TuVee is GCH Istari's TuVee or Not TuVee, WTD, WWPDX. A terrific working dog with a sweet temperament, we have admired TuVee in action at our CrowDitarod dogsledding events and weight pulls. TuVee won the Working Dog Showcase at the 2011 Alaskan Malamute Club of America National Specialty Show in Ann Arbor, Michigan. With both sire and dam descended from a long line of good working dogs, we anticipate puppies from this cross will have great temperaments and working drive. TuVee is owned by Helen and John Schultz of Tol Istari Malamutes in Spring Green, Wisconsin - so if puppies are coming, they will be born in Wisconsin. Helen and John sold us our foundation dog Procyon, the sire of Major. Take a look at TuVee in the slideshow below.
