I've not been consistent with blog postings since the arrival of ALL of the puppies. Rayna came the night before Topa's puppies arrived and hasn't gotten the Blog time she deserves. We are so excited that this little ball-of-fire joined us from the Andy Bassich/Kate Rorke Kennel via Nita Fowler at Sirius Sled Dogs in Fairbanks. Never having been drawn to black sled dogs before, I almost passed up the opportunity until Andy's recommendation swayed me towards this beautiful and soulful girl. Andy said that if I wanted the best of his kennel for breeding into mine, Rayna was the one. I fell in love with her the moment I laid eyes on her.
If you recall, her half brother Rommel, arrived a few weeks ago, completely melting my heart. What a perfect fit this line of dogs is for our kennel.
Rommel is a month older and quite a bit larger than Rayna at this point, but that doesn't seem to make much difference. Rayna's fairly open about her boundaries and swiftly tells Rommel when he crosses them. The puppy play is infectious and has all of the dogs revisiting their puppyhoods. Is has become the evening entertainment. The house dogs get into the act and we've got squeaky toys squeaking and puppies bouncing and rolling all of the house. Wait until we add Topa's bunch to the mix in several weeks time!
