Alchmy’s 2010 Litter (Tango x Ico)



Last litter with docked tails and removed dewclaws. I didn’t take the dewclaws from Mica because I wanted to see for myself what were the affects before forcing my puppy owners to deal with it.  From my observations with Mica, the dewclaw is used like all the other toes.  You can read some of the medical ramifications of removing dewclaws here>  It was this litter that made me realize that tail docking was more than simply removing a small piece of bone at the end of a tail.   Tails are usually removed when the puppy is 3-4 days old.  In theory the puppy is too young to feel the amputation and there are no side affects.  The day I had these puppys’ tails removed they were vigorously nursing with their tails going like little helicopters…. fast and furious.  After the procedure those tails never wagged the same way.  At that time I realized that I would never dock again… and I couldn’t me more happy.

Alchmy’s Royale Tango with a Twist


Mica lives in Bellevue, Washington with his sister Rhodi.  He is the most natural swimmer and retriever I’ve ever seen and he LOVES to work.  If you ask him to do something he will go to task with drive and enthusiasm.  He entered his first Nosework trial after only a few months of training and earned two Preferred designations and a first place in interior find.  The dogs were given 3 minutes to find the scent and Mica did it in 9 seconds.  The judge, a K9 police officer said that his work was, Out Standing.  I hope to get him into a few more trials so we can finish his title.
