As you all know, Kenzie has earned her Canadian Championship, and we are going to continue to show her as long as she enjoys it as much as she does and we do. Her breeder has even offered to take her to the US and believes she could also get her AKC Championship, as did her Dad, Mom, and sisters, (her uncle just won the title of Best In Show at the Eukaneba Show (Costello). Anyway, we are often asked at the shows if we plan on breeding her, and the answer is definately not! The reasons are as follows, am I nuts for feeling this way? (I respect and admire those who can responsibly, but: 1. First and foremost, I can't imagine putting her through the pain of labor, lol (even though I've had 3 easy ones myself)2. There's too many Alaskan Malamutes who don't have loving homes as it is, my breeder also does Rescue and has 5 needing homes now. 3. I don't know enough about breeding, although my breeder would handle that part 4. She'd have to be away from us and live at my breeders home for all those months, and we couldn't stand to be away from her that long, shoot, never even left her overnight! 5. Too many doggys need loving homes as it is. But as I said, First and foremost is the not wanting to put her through labor. Even if all the other reasons were rectified I still wouldn't breed for that reason alone, lol! Am I crazy?
