The Wayeh Story Today

The Wayeh Story Beginnings

Billie Stewart began with Morning Mist Wakon "Misty" and built Wayeh by inbreeding to 2 grandsons of Uyak Buffalo Bill -- Tobe's Big Bad John & CH Kiwaliks' Vykon Indiana Jones TT CD ROM and to a third dog, CH Vykon's Major Boogie Bear TT ROM (Inuit, Ro-Ala-Ken & CH Wakon).  She then added a Wayeh grand puppy out of BIS BISS CH Vykons Jarva's True Colors ROM "Sherman" (himself a double Buffalo Bill great-grandson).  See The Wayeh Story Beginnings & Photo Albums.  These inbreedings set the foundation with which we started over. 

Liz & Sidney inherited Wayeh Kennels, and with that great start began again with the last intact Wayeh girls Summer & Hope, half sisters out of Justice (Summer's pedigree & Hope's pedigree).  Summer (first in all things Malamute) finished with 3 majors and earned Wayeh's first working title, and Hope was still a working therapy dog at age 11 (RIP 12yo).

When outcrossed to the incomparably sweet Rider (RIP 12yo) from Snow Song, (a pedigree inbred on Storm Kloud) Summer gave us Singer, Tom T., & Snowman.  Singer is our third generation AKC/INT CH , and dam of working titled, obedience-titled, and AKC CH offspring.  Tom T. was an IWPA regional bronze medallist his rookie year pulling 22x and a Multi Best In Show Veteran at 10yo.  Snowman (owned by Lynne Nappi/Summer Ice) was awarded the AMCA Flaming Flirt in obedience as highest scoring male that year, and is the world's first Rally-Champion, any breed, any kennel club 10/30/04.  This outcrossed breeding (10-gen COI 1%) was an extreme outcross, to coin a phrase.

Compare the two pedigrees (Summer & Rider), dog by dog, and you'll find until 1948 (and with the Exception of Tora & her son Polar) these two pedigrees are identical -- as most Malamute pedigrees are before the studbooks were opened and the Kotzebue, M'Loot & Hinman-Irwin lines were blended.  In the 1950s, Summer's pedigree has some Canadian dogs that Rider's does not -- not that much of a difference in nearly 1000 unique ancestors. They both have the standard 1950s kennels of Husky-Pak, Sno-Pak, Roy-El, & Tigara.  The 1960s saw many dogs in common. But this was the beginning of the split between the 2 pedigrees. By the 1970s Summer's pedigree was dominated by Uyak Buffalo Bill (T'Domar, Kodara, Karohunta) and his descendents through Tobe, Kiwaliks, & Vykon. In the 1970s Rider's pedigree was all about Glaciers Storm Kloud (North Wind, North Star, & Silver Sled) and his descendents through Sarges, Wild Winds & Mals-Abouts.

Hope, when bred to grandpa Cherokee (it's not an oops, its a surprise when you're as pleased as we are with Cherokee breeding at 11yo), gave us Faithy (owned by John & Dorothy Moyers/Wohali).   This was another recombination of the old Wayeh genes.

We found another gorgeous outcross breeding in Charles (10-gen COI 5%), the RWD at the 1998 National (and who naturally sired two litters at 10yo, RIP 13y), and he was bred to Faith to produce Storm (by the Moyers/Wohali), and then we bred him to Singer to produce Sunny & Maestro (co-owned by Lori Hicks/Masasyu, Charles' owner). 

This new pedigree encompasses all of the early Alaskan Malamutes now -- save a dog here and there in in the 1950s. We dipped back into a little Storm Kloud and a little Uyak through Kohoutec. The big addition were the Northeast & Barrenfield dogs (Inuit, Sena-Lak, Kotzebue, Tigara, Kanangnark).

We found a third outcross in Nikko whose sire was linebred Totem and whose dam is Charles' first cousin  through Baylor/Nanuke.  We bred Nikko to Singer (dam of Sunny) to produce Seranade.  And then bred him to an outside bitch Mariah to produce Tori.  

Charles' cousin Nikko was more of the Northeast & Barrenfield dogs, with a hefty dose of Storm Kloud, Keikewabic, & Kasaan.  And Tori's dam Mariah is backyard bred on Uyak, Uyak, Uyak, and a little Wakon for bone.

Black Ice -- After meeting Black Ice's Lord of the Rings "Gandalf" (17 pts, 1 mjr), we bought a bitch from Black Ice named Hannah Banana, OFA Excellent out of an OFA Excellent dam.  (Black Ice is well known for working ability, correct structure, and gorgeous temperaments).  Her sire was 11yo when she was born. with the natural breeding that says a lot about his health.  We bred Luna (Nikko X Singer) to Hannah & Gandalf's brother Charger, OFA Excellent.  Hannah & Charger add a little more Storm Kloud & Uyak again, but the new dogs were Tote-um, Oopik, Sendaishi & Marlayne.  This produced BaRoo & Sirius.  Hannah was then bred to Brady for Pax, Smoky & Hoodoo.  To Artic-Luv & Uyak's Yogi to give us Boogie Bear.  And to Sirius for a double on Black Ice in Kindred.

Uyak -- What we really liked out of these outcrosses for health, temperament, longevity, and working ability were the dogs with Uyak in them.  The Uyak-yness of them.  So we brought to Wayeh half-brother & -sister Yogi & Honey (out of Uyak Koyak Kip from Artic-Luv breedings) to go right back to the roots of Wayeh pedigrees -- concentrated Uyak Buffalo Bill through J-Len's & Kiwaliks.  We've taken OFA Excellent Yogi to OFA Excellent Singer and her daughters Seranade & Sunny.  Honey went to Singer's son OFA Excellent Maestro and a Wayeh grandson.

And then we went back to Artic-Luv and got Indigo, Honey's neice and a triple on Jimi (Uyak Tomahawk Teddy X a Wayeh Needa Mist grand daughter Ashen Marauder).  We have great hopes for little Indi.

Czech Republic -- take the best of the European pedigrees, mix in proven Storm Kloud and Nanook, filter these pedigrees through the tough European breeding wardens and you get the fabulous Brady -- pure sweetheart with absolutely correct structure.  At 11m, he pulled down a reserve to an AKC 5-point major -- and did it out of coat -- because this boy can MOVE.  We built an assortive mating pedigree based on the phenotype of Brady's dam Cora, his sire's dam Conny, Hannah and her dam Anya combined with flawless temperaments and correct movement.

Braiding -- Now we're combining Wayeh with Artic-Luv/Uyak & Black Ice.  And we have plans to continue the combination with upcoming litters.

The point is building a kennel of bitches who share the same qualities of long-lived, linebred, working pedigrees that are outcrosses to our males.  We are selecting for temperament first and last, health (longevity), structure, working ability & then type -- because a good Malamute is first a good dog, and we're doing it all with genetic diversity.   

The Next Step...?
