Click “more” to watch a video of Abby enjoying some lake time with her Mor-mor and Mor-far, along with her “cousins”. Abby is very gentle with the kids and loves it when they throw the frisbee for her.
Abby enjoys the view from the mountaintop on our recent run. This summer started wet and cool but yesterday’s temperatures were perfect.
Slippery hike to the cloud line, Abby stops to enjoy the view. She is now 25 days pregnant. The developing pups have heartbeats of 100 to 125 beats a minute but are still just about a centimeter in size. Abby is eating well, has a beautiful coat, and is very energetic. All signs point to… Continue
With the steady spring sunshine, the fields are melting out. I’ve started working Abby towards her BH in IPO, and she is loving getting back into training, now that we have a decent surface to work on. This winter has been a long one full of ice, and snow.

The dogs enjoyed chasing snowballs, and resting on the sun-dappled snow drifts in the back yard. I less than enjoyed the backbreaking work of shoveling the deck and driveway, but the quiet and peace of a… Continue
Almost a foot of snow is destined to cover the still snowy mountains and hills today and into tomorrow evening. The mali-family enjoys the snow, but I am ready for spring and green leaves. Pemi and Sirius love running together. I think they will make a nice skijor team. Below, is a another action shot… Continue
For a couple years I’ve been planning another litter out of my incredible malinois girl, Abby, and today was the start of that journey. Rou Ivarus, a direct import malinois from Serbia was my choice stud. His lines mix beautifully with Abby’s, he has a balanced temperament suitable for work and family, he is social… Continue
