SHIPS Litter 2020 (Sailor X Gypsy)

Gypsy & the SHIPS litter zoomin’ around the agility yard.

Wayeh Inuit Seafarer “Sailor”
X Wayeh That Voodoo That Youdo Sowell “Gypsy”


10-gen COI 18%, anything under 7% is an outcross, but this pedigree doubles on the sugar-sweet AKC mjr ptd UWP Wayeh Rtic Seas “Akai.”
Tied 2/5-7-9/20, due 63 days later 4/8, born 4/10, go-home 9 weeks later on 6/12/20.
Sailor: 10-gen COI 7% outcross, OFA (prelim) Good, Thyroid normal, CERF clear, 82#, 24″ (standard), male gray & white
Gypsy: 10-gen COI 10% linebreeding, OFA (prelim) Good, Thyroid normal, CERF clear, 75#, 23″ (standard), female sable & white long-coat.

The long-coat is a simple recessive, like blue eyes in humans, both parents have to give a copy of the gene in order for the offspring to express the gene. The parents don’t have to be long-coats (or blue-eyed humans) to carry the gene & pass it to off spring. Gypsy’s long-coat is PHENOMENAL, it never mats, it combs out freely, and she sheds with no assistance because she has a coarse guard coat and a properly weather-proof undercoat. I’ve never had a long-coat like hers, it is effortless, like a correct normal coat. We won’t know for sure if these pups are long-coats until they are 5 weeks old.

Temperament Tests

This litter was a lot of fun. At 6w we did the Fishback Lead dog tests and they followed me EVERYWHERE. Over hill, and yonder dale, around a tractor, and to a barn with free-range ducks — who scattered like the wind when they saw puppies bouncing around. They met human kids and adults, new adult dogs, and discovered hula-hoops, A-frames, and agility dogwalks. Through the whole thing, they were all 4 followers. M1 gets easily distracted by kids. M3 gets easily distracted by shoes. Both big-coated boys think cuddling is more important than exploring.

At 7w we had company over for Temperament tests. Mike R. handled all the puppies and also dewormed them while he was at it. Aleek & Brittany met everyone, cuddled everyone, and played “who’s a dishrag” — which is what happened to all 4 of them when cuddled and held on their backs. Pups scored solid 3s for the most part. M3 was slightly more cautious with new things, but the second time he met the hula-hoop, he was merely curious. M1 was very happy to chase balled-up paper, until he discovered it was balled-up paper, then he ignored it. F1 spent most of her time snuffling shoes and M2 became an expert shoe-lace untie-er.

Vet visit & group play

Two of my favorite people helped me organize a group play between Mensa’s pups & Gypsy’s pups. Those two are my nieces Allison, down from Canada, and her little sister Sloane, who lives next door. We had a lot of fun. And, no, please don’t ask me which pup is which, LOL.

Litter Theme – SHIPS

AKC registered names will follow the litter theme:

Wayeh + __________

Call names can be anything you want and can either go along with the registered name theme (the name of a particular kind of ship, or its captain, or a port of call) or can be a more traditional sled dog name. But be aware, if you think it’s a great traditional name, likely so do others. We’re already at something like Nikko/Nikki #15, Tundra #11, Luna #9, Kodi/Koda/Kodiak #15, Cheyenne #5, Apollo #3, Zues #4, Kira/Kyra/Akira #8, Diesel #3, etc. So here’s your chance to be original!

When giving a dog an AKC name, simple is better.

  • Wayeh Ship in a bottle
  • Wayeh Ship of Fools
  • Wayeh Wooden Ships
  • Wayeh Space Ship
  • Wayeh Rocket Ship
  • Wayeh Ships that don’t come in
  • Wayeh Ships passing in the night
  • Wayeh Ship of Dreams
  • Wayeh Tall Ships Go
  • Wayeh Battleship
  • Wayeh Ship of the Line
  • Wayeh Ghost Ship
  • Wayeh Steam Ship
  • Wayeh Jumping Ship
  • Wayeh And the Ship Sails On
  • Wayeh Don’t Give Up the Ship
  • Wayeh When My Ship Comes In “Clint”
  • Wayeh A Ship of Souls
  • Wayeh Shipshape
  • Wayeh Ships A’hoy
  • Wayeh Ship to Shore
