Please pay attention to the signs and do NOT hesitate to get to the vet immediately if you suspect your dog is bloating. It is a killer and it can happen fast.
Natasha’s 9th birthday was last weekend. She, as well as her tow kids Misha and Tundra, did CABT Lure Coursing over the weekend. I finally got Natasha’s video uploaded. She had a great time. She decided a while ago that she didn’t like FastCAT anymore, likely because it’s over too quick. Running this 600 yard course was right up her ally.
We just got Tundra's OFA results back for Hips and Elbows. 🥰
This is the official win photo from Tundra’s WB win last weekend at the Potomac Valley Samoyed Club specialty show in Doswell, VA under esteemed judge Pat Trotter. She earned a 5 point Major, which has her down to two more points needed for her Championship. Since she is out of coat, with a lot of her last coat blow coming from her tail, I was not expecting this wonderful win. Thank you Ms. Trotter for seeing through her antics and lack of coat! An added bonus for Krystal Zima Samoyeds is that Tundra’s half sister Mishka went Reserve WB right behind Tundra, and Tundra’s litter mates Zelda and Talli went 2nd and 3rd in a very competitive Open class. All around, a wonderful day!
Tundra went Winners B***h at the Potomac Valley Samoyed Club Specialty show today under judge Pat Trotter. So proud of my baby girl! 🥰
Merry Christmas from our family to yours.
Wow!!! I have never seen this before. Awesome!
I finally had a chance to get through some of my video from Samoyed Club of America Nationals yesterday. Here is a short video with some footage of Misha competing in Best of Breed. He made the first cut but unfortunately didn’t go further. There were a lot of great dogs competing that day. https://youtu.be/MnmG9VFfQ4s
Misha BOB SCA Nationals 2021 GCH CH Krystal Zima's Dances On Air CAA DCAT CGCMisha made the first cut, which was great! A lot of great dogs competing.
Misha’s son Milo came to visit today for a play date.
Tundra earned her AKC Trick Dog Novice title tonight! 😁
Cool day at the beach today. Took the dogs for a nice long walk.
An interesting article landed in my email from the AKC Newsletter. The question… Are mixed breed dogs healthier than pure bred dogs?
Are Mixed-Breed Dogs Healthier Than Purebred Dogs? – American Kennel Club Despite articles claiming that mixed-breed dogs are healthier than purebred dogs, research tells us otherwise.
Huge Congratulations to Judi Elford and Vanderbilt Samoyeds on the Westminster Working Group win of their beautiful boy Striker last night!!! From Natasha (grand daughter to grandmothers CH Vanderbilt's Cool Yule and CH Vanderbilt's Playing The Game, and Grandfather Am Gr. Ch./Can. Ch. Echo's Prophecy to Daystar) and her kids.
Misha... Best of Breed today under judge Dana Cline. Tundra, Winners Bitch for another point. 😁
Baby Tundra earned her first point yesterday. We’ll see how she does today. 😁 I’ll post the official win picture when I get it.
Misha’s puppies!! 🥰 7 weeks old now. They will be going to their new homes in one week.
Great day in White Post running FastCAT with Misha and Tundra. Misha earned his FCAT today and Tundra earned her BCAT. Both had a great time!
YAY Krystal Zima Pups!!! 😁 Misha and Tundra should pop onto the rankings in a few weeks after the Richmond results are entered. Average of top three speeds gives the ranking. Misha and Tundra only had two runs when this was tallied.
We went to go visit Misha's first offspring today. 3 boys and 2 girls. 4 weeks old. So cute! 🥰
Misha the Lapdog 🥰

We had a fun little outing this morning with Natasha, Misha, and Ava doing scootering 🛴/ bikejoring on the C & O canal tow path.
Merry Christmas from Krystal Zima Samoyeds!!! 😁
Tundra really wants to go out and chase squirrels!!! Way too muddy right now though. 🙁
We spent the day doing FastCAT today at the Potomac Valley Samoyed Club's "Turkey Trot" FastCAT event. Five Krystal Zima pups from our 2016 litter were there (including Misha). Pictured here from left to right are: Mishka, Misha, Blizzard, Momma Natasha (the dirty one), Ava, and Max.
Misha had a great week at the Doswell shows last week! New Grand Champion - GCH Krystal Zima's Dances On Air CA DCAT CGC
He started with Select Dog on Wednesday, earning his GCH; followed with Best Opposite on Friday; and put a cherry on top with Best of Breed on Saturday! So proud of my baby boy 🥰
Misha went Best of Breed today! So proud of my baby boy! Here is a photo my hubby took. Official photo will come later.
Misha (GCH Krystal Zima's Dances On Air CA DCAT CGC) is a new Grand Champion (pending AKC confirmation). First show since March and he went Select Dog for 3 GCH points (he needed 2). Official win picture will come later; but here are some stills pulled from video and a shot my hubby took while we were setting up for the picture.
Checking out the newly updated FastCAT rankings for Samoyeds. Three Krystal Zima pups in the top 10! First and formost, Mishka has moved into the top spot. Misha is #7, and Max (who was only introduced to FastCAT this year) is #9. So proud of ALL my babies! 🥰
Tundra... Slo-Mo! 🥰
Tundra did a Fun Run out at the FastCAT event today. They ran the lure half way... then she got to chase it again going back. I think she liked it!😁
Misha today running FastCAT in Finksburg, MD. Fastest run for him was 24.09mph. 😁
Tundra finished her Puppy Agility class today. She has really improved in the past 7 weeks. We’ll probably need to look into continuing with Agility when she’s a bit older.
Puppy slippers for a chilly morning.
Sleepy puppy 💤
