The beginning

Our association with Alaskan Malamutes began in May of 1999 when after researching the breed we decided to buy our first dog. We were introduced to Billy and his owners, Joanne and Craig Heard from Bordalaska Alaskan Malamutes. Our first experience with Alaskan Malamutes was awe inspiring to say the least. There was Billy, a very impressive sight having been awarded Best of Breed at the Sydney Royal Easter Show 1999 only the week prior. Although we had already made the decision that the Alaskan Malamute was the dog for ourselves, this encounter had - in the space of 2 hours - confirmed our choice. After speaking with Joanne and Craig we were ready to start looking for a puppy. Luckily for us, Billy was about to be mated with Jayde and a litter was to be expected within 3 months. That particular mating gave us Satinka, who was our first Alaskan Malamute. So contagious the Malamutes are that a year later we added Mojo to the clan.
