Leading the way to Chinook magic!

Qaralii (ka-RALL-ee) was not supposed to stay. She had a great home set, and I was going to place all of the puppies from her litter. Then it was clear this would be Calista's only litter. And Qaralii at a few days old crawled away from her littermates and fell asleep on my foot as I sat in the whelping box. And that's all she wrote…..

She is a thoughtful, bold, and incredibly stable puppy, unfazed by anything that gets thrown at her. She has started obedience training with style, and endured her first road trip to UKC Premier with the unflappable equanimity of a seasoned campaigner. And at 6.5 months old, JUST like her mother, Qaralii earned her UKC conformation Championship in a single weekend, in four straight shows. Her first day in the ring she also placed first in Northern Group, and was sent to the Best in Show ring. At the end of a loooonnnngggg day, she was still wagging her tail and standing - which is a great achievement for such a young dog.

Meanwhile, Nashira is thrilled to have a little buddy and Calista loves having one of her babies still around. Perhaps most endearing is Qaralii's bond with her grandmother. Not a day goes by that they don't play a ferocious game of tag in the backyard, at full speed (Tikaani is quite fast for a 10 year old!)

Qaralii's full name is Ellam Qaralii which means Constellations in Yup'ik, a native Alaskan culture. She was from the Reach for the Stars litter, and her mother's name is Yup'ik, continuing a long line of native Alaskan names. She is shining brightly as a puppy - I'm excited to watch her grow!
