Ice arrived from Seattle to Newark via Continental Airlines Quick Pack – in a small crate.  She woke up immediately and, in a nice way, made it clear she needed to be held by a human.  NOW.  Karin McClain and Bob Moorhouse (Summerhill Kennel) drove down from Vancouver for shipping and I didn’t have to worry about importing.

After some hugging, I put her brand new White Pine orange collar / lead on and we were off across the parking lot.  I don’t know how much practice she had walking but she stayed in the “heel” position.  A little water, a few bites of food and she was asleep for the whole trip home.

My Shalli is her grand dam, Flurry is full sister to Rocky, her father (but a different litter) and Powder is a first cousin.  How would Ice fit in with these three, close girls? Well, let me tell you………..

Ice walked into the room, walked under Powder and to the center of the crowd. Not a moment of hesitation.  Announced herself with calm assurance.  The three simply responded “OK” and that was it.

Ice’s sire is Am CH White Magic Super Star O’Zima, “Rocky”, born right here in my den to Shalli. Her dam is Cdn CH Kolinka’s Taneeka.  Both Rocky and Taneeka are descendants of Am/Can/Eng/Int CH Rexann’s Vintage Stock, “Broker”.

Ice will be in puppy classes soon, and then off to handling classes.  She is eligible for Minuteman

Samoyed Club’s specialty in March, 2011.

Can’t wait.

(Right) "Ice spends summers in Kennybunk, Maine and winters on Sanibel Island, Florida. Here she is posing for her many admirers."

Ice finally made it to the show ring.  Her first "lap" was very ragged; the second much improved; and the third she looked like she has been in the ring for a while.  Fortunately, Debbie really can handle a dog.

Ice has been out two weekends now - blue ribbons (only entry in class) but nothing beyond that.  She is my sloooooooo learner. (August 18th update.)

ICE UPDATE - August 2012

"Ice has left us for the cooler weather of Maine and new owner John.  He's owned Sammies before and agrees that Ice is the sweetest Sammy around.  She's taken to the beach and chasing seagulls. (left)She'll certainly love Maine winters and she loved the ones here (right).  We wish the new team all the best."
