Australian Champion Bordalaska Runnin On Ice WTD

Satinka was our first Malamute. She provided us with a great introduction into the world of Malamutes as well as the Dog Show world. As a pet, Satinka was the perfect dog. She gave lots of doggy hugs and kisses and loved it when she received many in return. Satinka often ambled up to visitors nuzzling as close as possible in order to get a pat. When our house was being built, she was often found outside "helping" the tradesmen.

Although we waited for what seemed an eternity, Satinka came to us at the tougest time in Olivia's life. Satinka always managed to lift Olivia's spirits when she needed it the most. We are eternally grateful of her for being part of Olivia's life. Having Satinka in our lives has been more important than winning the most prestigious of dog shows. She was the one and only Satinka...irreplaceable. Nothing ever bothered Satinka - she was the ultimate house dog.

In the show ring, Satinka was a successful puppy having received 4 Baby Puppy in Group awards. At AMCNSW Championship Specialty Shows she has received two 2nd place ribbons and a 3rd place ribbon in 2002 in the Australian Bred class. In September of 2002 she competed in Victoria at the Melbourne Royal and the AMCV Championship Specialty Show receiving a fifth place and third place respectively from the Open Class. In addition to this, Satinka won Best Brace with her buddy, Mojo at the same AMCV Championship Show.

Satinka also participated out on the trail. She was a powerfully built bitch that had no trouble achieving what she was bred for. She had plenty of reach and a powerful rear that provided lots of drive. At the age of 5, in June 2004, Satinka was awarded her Working Dog Title (WTD).

18 months after losing her best buddy, Mojo, they are together again running the fields of heaven.
