My Malamutes are just that, mine. They are not show dogs, they are not passed around from show person to show person, they are not with "handlers". They are never passed around from breeder to breeder.
They are my companions, my best friends, my hiking buddies, trail buddies or just hanging out in the yard buddies. They are not a business or property.
They are what I love, my passion.
Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are groomed and sometimes they are dirty.
We live a fun life. My malamutes opinions matter to me. Their smiles matter to me.
