GreatMountain Tribute Litter
CH Hurricane Nokomis Dream X GreatMountain X Tanacross
Five puppies born October 17, 2006

The Tribute Litter

North Down X Cheena, a first generation crossbred dog, was the foundation female for the GreatMountain cross line.  Cheena gave us our dear GreatMountain X North Trav'ler from our first GreatMountain litter.  Trav'ler gave us seven wonderful pups at the third generation, including the sire of this litter, GreatMountain X Tanacross. This litter represents seven years of work on our cross line and the pups that move forward in breeding homes will be eligible to be registered as purebred Chinooks by the United Kennel Club. 

As a tribute to Cheena, who is named after the Chena River in Alaska, we gave all of the pups kennel names that are Athabascan or from the Tanacross region of Alaska.  The Village of Tanacross is an Athabascan Indian Community located on the banks of the Tanana River near Tok, Alaska.  Tanacross is an endangered Athabascan language spoken by fewer than 60 people.  Three of the pups have kept their Athabascan names.  To read more about Tanacross, go to http://www.nativevillageoftanacross.com/nvthistory.html.

Four of the five pups will be held open for evaluation for breeding.
