Leading the way to Chinook magic!

The Princess of Power Litter

Thank goodness for decent, if we weather. The pups are LOVING the opportunity to explore outside where they can RUN to their heart's content. It's been fund watching their confidence grow as they range farther and farther from the big dogs and into the depths of the yard. They have also really enjoyed the introduction of new toys like the balance board. They are more assertively climbing and jumping things- Adora in particular is athletic and fearless.

And still, when they have worked out some puppy energy, they love to come find me and cuddle near me for a nap. They have met new people and doled out puppy kisses and wags enthusiastically. We continue the clicker training journey with Manding work- sometimes I think they've got it….sometimes I don't!

Nashira is a dog that leaves a lasting impression, whether with her focus or enthusiam or determined, deep intelligence, or all of the above. I often talk to her and am completely convinced she understands the entire conversation. At some point, one of her nicknames became (Na)She-Ra, after the 80s cartoon character (yes, I know I'm showing my age). As the fandom wiki page notes,
She-Ra is the "beautiful…strong-willed, forceful individual who believes firmly in doing the right thing" alter-ego of Princess Adora. This aptly described my (Na)She-Ra! When I learned Netflix is rebooting the She-Ra franchise this year…a litter theme was born. Expecting a bigger litter, I had all kinds of names and toys from the She-Ra cast of characters ready for puppy names. And then I have a boy and a girl. So, of course they must be Princess Adora (She-Ra's alter ego) and her twin brother Prince Adam (He-Man's alter ego).

Puppies will be raised using the Puppy Culture program - check Instagram and Facebook for updates.

Both puppies will go to homes already on my list. I may have puppies available from other Satellite and Associated Litters later this year - you can check the puppies page for more information.

It's official. Adora is Nashira's Mini-Me. Fearless and curious and thoughtful….with plenty of cuddly thrown in.

She has things to do and places to go, and doesn't appreciate being interfered with while on a mission. But if you get her when she's settling down for a nap, there is none cuddlier with sweeter puppy kisses.

She is named after the character Princess Adora, who despite difficult early years is a smart, compassionate, loyal, and brave woman. You can learn more about the cartoon Adora

Adam is incredibly sweet with a nice off switch. He loves to play and has a little streak of mischief in him.

Adam is, of course, named after Prince Adam, Adora's twin brother and alter ego of He-Man! Adam is an adventurous, happy-go-lucky, strong, cunning and brave heir to the throne, who fights for justice as his alter-ego, He-Man. You can learn more about the cartoon Adam

Chinooks are a very rare breed with around 100 puppies born every year. As we have been successful in keeping our dogs from being exploited in puppy mills, we rely on Chinook owners that are willing to keep a male intact or raise a litter to support a diverse gene pool. While all Chinooks are first and foremost pets, some owners participate a bit more directly in sustaining the breed. An owner's contribution can range from simply raising a litter for which I take responsibility for finding and supporting puppy homes, all the way to people starting a new kennel on their own. This helps ensure we have healthy Chinooks in the future! If you are open to discussing this, please contact me for more information.
