"PR" BrownStone Cascade Mt. KomaKoma (Mt.Baker, Ms Yellow) is now a lucky beach girl named Liaka. She was 14oz when whelped.
Like all the puppies in this litter, Liaka has gone through several ear sets during her first year. At 9 weeks, she wore a really cute helicopter ears to puppy class.
"We were at Mammoth Lakes this past week. Laika loved the snow and frolicked in it constantly. I have skijoring equipment which we brought with us, but I am relearning cross country skiing (last done almost 35 years ago), and I was not confident that I could control Laika and ski at the same time. We will continue treking to Mammoth in the future and I hope to master Skijoring with Laika eventually. By the way, there were several skijorers on the trail with their dogs each day that I was in the cross country venues".
At 11 months Liaka's owner wrote: "We just returned from Mammoth Lakes last evening and I wanted to send you a few of the photos of Laika that we took there. She is still a bit apprehensive of the water - fresh water this time - but as you can see loves playing in it. At here last weigh in she was 58.6 lbs; that was three weeks ago.
We began classes in Therapy Dog training last week. The organization is "Love Heels"; Patricia Dibsie trains at Nazareth House, a retirement home and health center. We shall see how Laika does.
Skijoring will have to wait until cross country ski season, but I am hoping to get her involved in that sport next winter."
