2022 Breeding Plans.

We are planning on only one more litter for this year. We need to slow down a bit and focus on our family, we have some personal matters going on that need our full attention. With that being said I think this is a good time to rest our girls.

Reign x Jasper are expecting puppies at the end of May. We are accepting 2 pre-birth deposits. Reign has between 3 and 4 puppies so a small litter is expected. Jasper and Reign’s previous litter was absolutely gorgeous. If you have any questions please contact me, SupernovaSiberians@gmail.com

Biosecurity

  Hi guys. I wanted to talk a bit about biosecurity. We recently had a puppy go home that was diagnosed with giardia. This is to my knowledge the first time in 10 years I have had a puppy go home and test positive for giardia. Giardia like coccidia and intestinal worms are all common in puppies, and we do not guarantee against them in our contract. But that does not mean we do not take it seriously. Our litters are raised in doors with an outside play area (concrete and artificial grass) that can be fully disinfected. All of our pups are given basic parasite prevention. This particular puppy stayed with us for an extended stay (4 weeks) so she had access to our entire yard. I can only think she got it from eating something in the grass or getting into small puddles of water. We are disinfecting all hard surfaces inside and out and making sure there are no areas of standing water in the yard. I am replacing the artificial grass in the play area with all new. Biosecurity is super important and these kinds of things can happen to anyone, breeder or puppy family. You can find parasites, viruses and bacteria in your yard, parks, on hikes, on walks, dog parks, etc.

  * I do not think any other puppies were exposed as they never had access to my yard, dirt or standing water. I did not see any signs or symptoms while she was here and she did great at her second vet visit while with us. If this puppy developed this while with us it was long after the other puppies left and only after she had access to our yard. I am being transparent and using this as a learning lesson not to get people upset, worked up or nervous. If you have concerns please see your vet.   

The Pitter Patter of Lil Paws. {Texas Siberian Huskies]

Hi guys, I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. I took a lil social media break and just enjoyed family and adjusting to our situation. It was so nice and we had a wonderful Christmas and New Years Eve. But, now it’s time to prepare for puppies.

Winter’s estimated due date is next week. I am prepping my office for her puppy room. We have both pre birth deposits and will be taking remaining deposits after the litter is born. She is big n round!

Millie’s estimated due date is still a few weeks away. She is due towards the end of the month. We have one pre birth deposits available. She and her pups will be set up in the original puppy room. Can you believe it has been almost 2 years since our girls synced up and we had multiple litters.

Both litters were sired by Jasper and we are super excited to see these babies. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. SupernovaSiberians@gmail.com

Planned January 2022 Litters

Hi guys. We expect 2 litters in January. In order to avoid taking more deposits then we have puppies and getting into issues with upset and disappointed puppy parents and multiple deposits being rolled to next litters, we only take 2 deposits per litter and only after we have confirmed breeding has taken place. Remaining deposits will be taken after the litter is born.

Winter is due first. We expect pups mid month. She is paired with Jasper and we are excited for puppies. We do NOT expect woolies as Jasper is a standard coat male who adheres to the breed standards and to our knowledge he does not carry the woolly gene. We do expect traditional colors including black and white and grey and white. Blues eyes are probable but all colors and combinations are possible.

Millie is due towards the end of the month. She was also paired with Jasper and we expect a gorgeous litter of puppies. I expect traditional colors and markings but based on pedigree we may be surprised with a variety of colors. Blue and brown eyes are are expected but as always all colors and combinations are possible.

Both girls have started on supplements, folate smoothie cubes and we have already increased their food and are adding in fresh foods. We are watching our other intact girls because it seems that they girls are starting to sync up again. We will make decisions on possibly skipping heats if by chance all 4 sync up. If you have any questions please contact me.

Breeder Con Artists….

I’m am choosing to post this without naming names. Because while this pertains to a one person in particular it could be anyone and it is happening all around us. It did not start with this person nor will it stop with her. It is a warning more so than a tattle post. If you want to know more it should not be hard to figure it out.

For years I have warned of how the internet allows us all to play with smoke n mirrors. To be who we want to be, make up personas and easily lie about anything. But here is the thing, the internet does not forget. What you post one day and try to counter months later is always there, even if you go back and delete your post someone read it and someone remembers. I have seen first hand and been the victim of a person who was good dressing up her crap and calling it gourmet. Maybe that is why I am so watchful now. But this is not about her…. this is about a far worse person.

2+ years ago when this person burst on the scene she rubbed me the wrong way. She was demeaning in her replies to people. For a “newbie” she came off as a know it all and had no issues hurting people with her comments. She was a mutual friend to a few people I trusted so I thought maybe I was being judgy… I gave her a chance and sure enough I was right. (tooting my own horn here) I visited her website and low and behold I saw MY blog post on her website. I had posted a blog post about why Puppy Culture and completing my Puppy Start Right for instructors course was so import to me. She had it as a page on her site. It was a personal blog post so it was written in first person. So here she was claiming to have taken the course and got her certification…. I mean it was effing crazy to see this. When I texted her, she simply claimed she had no idea I wrote it and that she found it on the internet! WTF? So that makes it ok? Even if that was true (and I don’t buy it) she still had no issue taking someone’s blog post and using it on her page “Because it sounded good!”. She removed it only to, get this….. copy and paste someone else’s info on Puppy Culture. So here is what that told me.

  • She is a thief
  • She has no regard for other people
  • She was obviously lying about using Puppy Culture using it as a selling point
  • And if she is a thief and a liar she was not to be trusted

I unfriended her and refused to deal with her. Sadly this meant my friendship with mutual friends took a back seat. While I loved them, I could not “fake” being friendly to this lil flower on any level. I even thought a few times I was over reacting, but still could not being myself to associate with her. A short time later someone on a husky group posted that this person was charged with animal abuse in 2018 when she was working as an animal rescue in Florida. It was shocking to see the video of the news report but it did confirmed my intuition. I watched her continue to acquire dogs and go on as if she was a breeding, showing, training expert. She was transporting dogs which raised another red flag because she was acquiring dogs from other breeders and “transporting them”. I suspected at this point she was using her transport business to flip dogs. I also noticed she was using images of other dogs to represent her dogs on her website. I brought this up to a fellow breeder and she agreed and even found where the original photos came from. I also suspect she was getting into a possible hoarding issue with the amount of dogs she was acquiring.

She along with her husband was recently changed with I think 82 counts of animal cruelty. She also faces felony charges for forging medical documents. I was briefly in a group for people who got puppies from her and their stories were heartbreaking. She was flipping dogs, lying about where they came from, forging health certificates, pups went home sick, pups died in her care, she lied to other breeders she was working with conning them, she told buyers to use corrections on puppies, and she had over 50 dogs in a tiny area with no access to food or water.

I’m posting this because her victims all said, “she answered questions”, “she said the right things”, “she had a website”, “she seemed legit”. But it was smoke n mirrors. A horrible façade. This person is why breeders are looked down upon. This is why I say be careful. I’m not perfect, we all make mistakes, it’s how we learn. But it’s up to us to change course, make things right, to educate ourselves, improve and grow. Please ask questions. If they don’t allow you to their house (which is completely understandable in this day and age) ask to see photos, video, live chat. I have almost daily video documentation of my litters as they grow. All breeders do things differently and you have choices on where to go.. but it is honesty in how we raise our puppies, as well as dogs and puppies in safe, sanitary, healthy and loving environments, along with education and experience is what is important. Be careful out there guys!

Breeding Rights

I have never in 9 years offered breeding rights. So when I was discussing co-owning and the terms of our arrangement with Jasper’s breeder and she mentioned she would rather I not offer breeding rights, I did not hesitate to agree. He is our only active stud so this means for now until the foreseeable future we will not offer breeding rights. So in essence nothing has changed since I started 9 years ago.

I had a few folks ask about puppies from this litter and wanting breeding rights. Most were very respectful of my answer, others not so much. I don’t owe anyone an explanation but here we go.

  • I prefer my pups go to forever pet homes.
  • Breeders all choose to raise their pups differently and with recent events I can not trust my pups with be raised and bred in a manner in which I feel is ethical and responsible. Even with a contract.
  • Many breeders retire breeding dogs and rehome them once they are no longer needed to make room for new pups. While I don’t have an opinion on this, it is not how I want my pups raised. I want forever homes for my pups.
  • Too Much Drama!!! The dog world is nuts and I don’t want a part of all that.
  • I don’t want to!

If you have any questions please let me know. 😀

Reign’s Vampire Chronicles Litter.

Armand, Akasha and Lestat were a fun bunch. These babies I noticed were different at just hours old. Not only were they big babies, they looked a bit different too. I waited to see if anyone else noticed because I felt silly. Sure enough at just 2 days old my son was seeing what I already noticed. He said, “Wow, you can tell these are Jasper babies!” There it was! These babies were a perfect combination of Reign and Jasper.

Reign continued to be our super mom. It is safe to say she is a doting mother who borders on over mothering her babies. She liked to chase Millie and Mazikeen out of the puppy room. This was hard for Maze who up until now was a complete momma’s girl. The 3 babies grew fast and are for sure my biggest babies weight wise. We had some family changes happen and they had to share me with not only my mom responsibilities but also my grandmother duties. They were champs. While Armand had a home lined, the other 2 babies were slow to find a home which I found very odd since to me they are such a gorgeous bunch. A momma of a past pup of ours asked if it was because they all had brown eyes…. and while I can’t confirm that was the cause it sure seems like it. I really think we need to do more in the husky community to normalize and promote brown eyes.

Not one to take all the credit, I want to take time to acknowledge Reign’s breeder, Evelyn of Siberians of Wildheart and Jasper’s breeder Malorie of The Siberian Legacy for trusting me with their babies. Their friendship and trust means the world to me.

Reign Pregnancy week 9 {Texas Husky Breeder}

  • Week 9
  • She may express milk from her nipples.
  • She may also become restless, seek seclusion and in the last few days, soil the house.
  • She will be ‘nesting’ 12-24 hours before the birth
  • Start taking rectal temperatures. Normal is 99.5 to 101. A drop to 97 – 98 on two readings an hour apart will mean the start of pre-labor.
  • Expected date of whelp.
  • Average is 63 days but may take place from the 58th to the 68th day.
  • Keep watching temp drop.
  • Appetite will disappear as whelping approaches.
  • May see a clear discharge from the vulva.
  • At onset of labor may pace, dig, shiver, pant and/or vomit.
  • First fetus will be delivered within 4 hours of the onset of labor.

Reign is doing very well. She is very irritable and enjoys being in the calm puppy room, but she also wants to be with me. So I am back n forth. 😀 I can feel movement and she likes me rubbing her tummy. Her due date is estimated around 9/7 (depends on which calculator I use). As always actual due date depends on the exact time of ovulation and well…. nature. haha

If you have any questions about available puppies from this litter, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks Etsy {Texas Husky Puppies}

I not a huge fan of collars on newborns, and I’ve had incidents of older playing puppies getting teeth stuck in collars. But I’ve learned that identification collars are super helpful for our puppy families especially while watching our daily videos. I’ve tried over 4 different types and I’m trying another. “Thanks Etsy’ The paracord collars are much better then the velcro. I even purchased a cute set that came with cute keepsake paracord collar bracelets for families. My issue with the paracord collars was I really needed a size in between the newborn and puppy sizes. I found this set and fell in love. I got it with the breakaway clasp hopefully that will prevent injury, they come in 3 sizes and with a go home leash.

Follow along with our September litter and I’ll let you know how I like them.
