It is hard for me to write this news...Cedar lost all of her puppies after becoming ill from tainted cow hooves. Her custodial owner is just devastated about the lost litter and also the loss of one of Cedar's housemates. The full story as well as a tribute to the fallen Willy can be seen on Brownstone Chinooks blog. http://brownstonechinooks.blogspot.com/
Wow! What a response. Thank you to everyone who contacted me about Tuktu. He found a home within a day of me posting his information. He will be moving to New England where he will soon have another Chinook housemate. I am sorry his previous owner had to give him up but I am happy he found such a wonderful home. Thanks again to everyone who offered to take him in.

Jiggles also sired a litter for Moonsong Chinooks a few days before he was asked to sire the Brownstone litter. Jiggles had a very busy week and was quite happy with a job well done.
On Saturday, May 12th 2012, Pharaoh crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was 12 years old- a good age for such a big guy! Pharaoh was a very sweet, very mellow but fun loving dog who was loved by EVERYONE who met him. His mom came into our rescue in Florida and promptly gave birth to 10 pups- All of whom looked very Husky like except for Pharaoh. He was so much of a Chinook -a-like as a pup that I just had to have him.
Pharaoh looked so handsome in his harness!
He was a great weight pull dog and we would practice with tires by pulling them up and down our 1 mile grass runway
What a cute face! I had a very hard time naming him and one day a visitor to the rescue looked at him and said "Look at that puppy, he has a face painted up like a little Pharaoh" and that was his name!
Pharaoh with his mom Chassie, a Malamute hybrid. He did not get any of his looks from his mom! All his littermates looked similar to her- Pharaoh was one of a kind.
Pharaoh snoozing- his favorite activity
The only time Pharaoh was active was when he was under harness. He loved to pull. He was a strong, steady sled dog. Here he is the winter after I moved to Washington in harness with UConn, Hyak, and Tay. Of the four dogs in this picture, only Tay( back right) is left...where has time gone:-(
