Samoyeds in The Glow Of The Snowy Star kennel
Welcome to our website and hope you`ll have a great time with our dogs. We are Mirka&Jacek, a longtime married couple who never followed a 9 to 5 life due to our passion- animals, dogs in particular. We`ve always loved animals and wanted our children to grow up around them. My mother`s words “the way in which you treat animals shows your humanity” have always been and will be in our hearts and we are so glad that we were able to pass this sensitivity on to our daughters.
Dog sledding and breeding Samoyeds have changed our lives forever and we couldn’t be more grateful. Hard work and dedication tastes so sweet when you have a lovely bunch of fluff balls around you. They bring on the sunshine on a gloomy day and help you stay focused on your daily tasks. Have a look at my blog to get a sample of our everyday life with sammies and not only; www.samoyedija.blogspot.com.
My husband, apart from helping me, concentrates his time on organizing sled dog racing in Poland and voluntary work for the Polish Kennel Club. In 2011 he was an honoree to their Bronze medal for all his involvement and in 2016 - Silver medal. He shares his overtime hours between the local kennel club in Chojnice and his role of the sled dog committee Secretary within the Polish Kennel Club. For years he`s been a chairman of “Sfora Nakielska” , a sled dog lovers association and organized numerous dog sled races.
We're both interested in therapy with dogs. In 2015 we pass Kynotherapist exams with very good results and we participate in special lessons for children with our Samoyeds.
About our kennel
The Glow Of The Snowy Star kennel was established in the spring of 2003 with the arrival of two beautiful Alaskan malamutes. Soon after, we rescued Alaskan malamute Emir (brother of our Enia) from ending up in a shelter and welcomed Black Russian Terriers to our home. Our first Samoyed was JUSTI Jarpen (picture in the left; Justi was a daughter of the World Veteran Winner 2006 and later accomplished Polish Champion) and our “smiling Sammy” journey began.
The breed is utterly fascinating, caring and loving. JUSTI showed us that samoyeds are truly one of a kind. Our next samoyeds were ARIA and ARANDA z Łańcuta. Two caring and extremely patient sisters who spent long hours working in dog assisted therapy.
Aranda also loved dog racing and was one of the first contestants in the Samoyed Cup , Jacek`s lovely spot on idea on how to get children involved in canicross. Aranda run with Karina Borkowska, who later became a runner up in Polish Junior Championship.
JUSTI, ARIA & ARANDA `s offspring and their offspring gave foundation to many other Samoyed kennels and became champions in numerous countries.
On January 16th 2006 we welcomed a Swedish/Danish import Dragviken`s HANNIBALL OF SAMSON (Honey) to our home. This wouldn`t be possible without cooperation with Iwona Lenarczyk (Arctic Challenge Kennel).
Our next import with Arctic Challenge kennel (this time from France) was BY ARCTIC CHALLENGE TINY’GLOO Of Winky Bow-Wow (WINKY), presently the most titled Samoyed male in Poland.
GLOW ARCTIC STAR Yoshi&Us (XAMBA) definitely lives up to her name. She was our next import together with Iwona. Xamba is currently the most titled female Samoyed in Poland and has collected and impressive list of European titles. Winky and Xamba lives in Arctic Challenge kennel with Iwona.
We decided to keep three females in our home kennel:
ARCTIC CHALLENGE HONEY The Glow Of The Snowy Star – KASIA (daughter of JUSTI & HONEY); INES WINKY The Glow Of The Snowy Star – INES (daughter of JUSTI & WINKY); KIA ORA HONEY The Glow Of The Snowy Star – KIARA (daughter of ARANDA & HONEY). All these females are Champions. Kasia is also International Champion of Beauty (Interchampion).
In July 2013 we done next import to our kennel - this time from Serbia. Fresh blood in our breeding plan, male with English & Australian lines in his pedigree:
- Aklaro FAST & FURIOUS - FURIO.
In 2013 we kept also female from litter "Q" out of KIARA and male from Austria - FEDON ARES von Barendorf: QULA KAY OF ARES The Glow Of The Snowy Star - KAYA.
In march 2014 came to us next import. This time it was female with excellent pedigree: ARABELA White Beauty Of Svidnik - ARABELA.
Our dogs have got vast, fenced outdoors to run and play as well as nearby fields and forests. We are very fortunate to live in a small village just outside Bydgoszcz.
