Rafa is the boy we kept from our "Missy x Sampson" litter. He is a stunning boy with a fabulous temperament. We hope he grows up to the potential he is showing now as a pup. 

 In October 2010, we went to the Nationals in Colorado. Rookie me enters a 9 mo old puppy in the bred by class...of 11 class dogs, Rafa takes 3rd!! He also wins the 6-9 class in regional sweeps.

2011 - At 20 months old, Rafa earns his Grand Ch title with 5 majors, earning the last one by going Select Dog at the Regional Specialty the day before the National in MI with over 300 Malamutes entered! Special Thanks to Breeder Judge, Robin Hug for this wonderful win!

2012:  Wow! where to start...Rafa is maturing so nicely and has had a great year! Some highlights include becoming a Multi Best in Specialty Winner by going Best of Breed at the NCAMA Specialty in Woodland CA in May and again at the SKAMF Specialty in Enumclaw, WA in August.  He also won the Working Group in July under Breeder Judge Kimberly Meredith-Cavanna and received an Award of Merit (AOM) at the AMCA National Specialty in October with a total entry of over 300. In pretty limited showing, Rafa is ranked the # 6 Malamute in the Country (AMCA stats) through September. I couldn't be prouder...this boy has blessed us with so much, and most importantly,  is just a great tempered family dog.
