We bought our first siberian husky in the spring 2004. It was Indian Tribe´s
Husky Comox. He is the foundation of our big interest in this special dogs.
And the interest is growing bigger for every day. At the same time we also
bought Cailey, a mix breed polardog. We wanted to have some dogs just for
fun when we moved out to the farm we bought. Until that day we lived in an
apartment on the third floor almost in the middle of Helsingborg.
almost every people know, this dogs are born with a big will to spend their
extra energy on pulling. Comox showed us this will, so we bought a harness
and started pulling with him tied to our mountain bike. Fun! Wonder how it
would be to pull with more dogs? We bought Tjalbergets Meleia, a 10 month
old bitch. The week after that, we bought two puppies, Cera and Kayo from
Snow Tribe´s. Now there was a foundation to a 4-team. We were biking with
Meleia and Comox. After a while we bought a Saccocart. I think it is how the
biggest part of todays mushers started their career. Today no one could ever
talk me over to sitt down in this training carts after a siberian. It´s a
danger for your life!
Vox Celesta´s Top Boy( Tobbe) came to us in the summer 2006. At that time we
had 6 dogs on the farm, 5 willing to pull. We started to train the dogs for
competitions in the season 06/07.
Our dogs went on their first competitions that season. We started with a
4-team at Nordic Open in Asarne, the Championship for siberian husky in
Lillholmsjö and the SHAM (SiberianHuskyAlaskanMalamute) competition in
Nornäs. When we were at this competitions we bought more dogs. Some of then
well planned, some not. We bought Team Amarox Mumin, a god lead dog from Pia
Ångström. In Lillholmsjö we met Constant from kennel Napapijri. He had his
lovely puppies with him. So I fell in love with Chevak. Adam had no other
choice than agree that we should have more dogs. Chevak and his brother
Caswell (Cash) was bought from Napapijri. When we were on our way back home
from this competitions we picked up 4 males that we got for the price of a
good home. It was Ahtna (Acke), Tagish (Tage), Denvilldra Teqno and Frodo.
After long time thinking we decided to put Cailey into a family
with lots of kids, living in Höör. She weight 34 kg and didn´t like to pull
with the siberians. Frodo is now living with Ida, a friend from Adams work.
He had shown other specialities than just pulling - he was the best dog to
look for mushrooms! Ahtna is in the dog heaven. He was fighting with all the
other males and he was always stressed. So, left at our place we had Comox,
Meleia, Cera, Kayo, Tobbe, Chevak, Cash, Mumin, Teqno and Tage.
In summer 2007 we got the opportunity to buy 4 promising dogs from
Catarina Södersten. So Trahimus Tiny Tim, Niklas, Sven and Dio came to us.
In the last part of winter 2008 we had to put our first husky to sleep,
Comox. So he is in the dog heaven for sure. We miss him every day and hope
to meet him in our next lives.
And in the last part of summer 2008 Tage moved to our X handler Ronja.
All the attention is located at him. That was what he needed. And when you
have that many dogs you can´t just give one dog the whole attention. It is
not far from us, so we can vivit him whenever we want to.
Tjalbergets Meleia moved to Gino and Elsie at Fjällandspirit, a tourist
kennel, in the winter 2008. Meleia is a nice, good working and wery social
bitch, so she really deserves only the best. She was not fast enough for
sprint distances with our long legged males. But at that kennel they give
her all the time she needs, the speed is not that important there.
