ALCHMY Absolut LITTER 2011
NICKEL DOB: 6/10/2006
STOLI DOB: 3/18/2008
Domtotem Yakutskiy Almaz
Nickel’s puppies were born May 11, 2011 the sire was Stoli, DomTotem Yalkuskiy Almaz. You can read about him on their blog HERE.
This was my first litter that I didn’t dock tails or cut dewclaws. In the previous litter I left the dewclaws on one puppy so I could experience myself what it was like. I ended up keeping Mica and I have to say that I’m impressed by his dewclaws. They are very well attached and have webbing just like his other toes. He has even developed a pad on the dewclaw so I know that it is used. After experiencing this litter, I will never dock a tail or remove dewclaws ever again.
There were 9 puppies in the litter (in birth order):
Ally lives in Seattle, Washington in a home for performance. She is training in Obedience, Agility and NoseWork but her Mom loves to try all kinds of things with her like Dock Diving, Barn Hunt and other dog sports.

Mac Zulu lives in Texas and Mexico. He lives in Texas on a large property where he gets to help with the cattle. One day he refused to come to the house when called and his owner found him guarding a newly born calf. Mac is also a gentleman who knows how to go out on the town.
Hazel lives in Carnation, Washington where she trains in Nose Work and Obedience but spends much of her time camping and snowshoeing. Last summer she decided to show off in front of her sister and entered a Dock Diving competition.. she didn’t beat her sister but she did some spectacular jumping. She’s quiet the athlete and her owners say that she’s lived up to her name, “Kick in the pants.”
Alchmys Absolut TNT
Scarlett lives with her half-sister Fiona in the San Juan Islands. She is the globe-trotter and travels with her parents to Palms Springs and other places. Scarlett is an athlete just like her other sibs but it’s all recreational…meaning chasing bunnies and taking long long walks in the woods.
Called Scarlett, Scarlee, Silver Bullet.
In the 55 years of owning 7 standards, Scarlett is the sweetest, best mannered, loving canine friend I have ever had. Except when she has the scent or sound of anything with four legs nearby and food that is nearby. She turned fully silver by age 3, and does not have an ounce of fat on her. Like her sister Fiona, she eats frozen Darwin raw meats along with Honest Kitchen Force daily. Her weight averages between 39-44 lbs.
She is very athletic, very fast, takes corners on the lure run at 90 degree angles running like the stallion she is. She outruns border collies in straight speed and doesn’t care much for agility and training stuff. A very friendly dog who interacts with humans as if they were fast friends and other dogs as pals except for the bigger, dumber models that try to muscle her around. Some days she runs like the wind being chased, other days she attempts to get other dogs to chase her, and others she just sniffs around. Whimsical on everything except expressing her love for us.
She is a food thief and we can’t leave her along with butter or meat of any kind within reach. Same for socks, and often slippers and even shoes. At almost 5 she still likes to be chased by us trying to get our socks back. Even more fun when her little sister Fiona jumps into the fray full speed and we have a hurricane through the entire house.
She adapted to her little Energizer Bunny sister Fiona well. Scarlett is very laid back and puts up with a lot of in her face tugging and pushing and shoving by Fiona. An occasional big sister growl and snap solves the issue.
As we live in the woods on a gravel road we have to keep Scarlett on a leash as she runs off with all the scents and sounds, and has no idea what a car is. She is very birdy and almost points at times with a fierce intensity. She will wander away if off leash so she stays on unless we are in an enclosed spot.
Scarlett is a very loving, nose touching friend who is almost always within my sight. When I go up and down the stairs, like Ivana, her predecessor, she bumps alongside all the way, occasionally nipping at my fingertips. She has the most beautiful eyes and I swear she is talking to me when I look at her.
Alchmys Absolut Leading Man CGC TD HIC
Clooney lives in Seattle, Washington with three Cat sisters. He is owned by a first time dog owner who puts some of us experienced trainers to shame with her natural understanding of dog language and the voracious study of all things ‘dog.’ He too does a lot of camping, running, Nose Work and snowshoeing and agility.
What Clooney’s mom has to say about him:

Alchmys Absolut Countess Of Lovelace HIC Junior DD RATI
Lacey lives in Bellevue, Washington and is hoping to have a new niece living with her this Fall. Lacy is an athlete of the air and very thing she does is 4 feet off the ground. She’s well-known at the dog park because she goes there to play almost every day. A few summers ago her parents happened to be a fair where there was a Dock Diving event. Knowing how much she loves to jump into the water they decided to give it a try. She ended up winning first place in the Novice division with a jump of 10 feet. Although she never does any training, every summer she competes in the Salmon Days Dock Diving competition and never disappoints the crowd. This year she made it to the Junior level with a jump of 15 feet.
