In September, 2007, I had the fortunate opportunity to meet and visit with Jeanne Nonhof of Moonlighter Samoyeds in Wisconsin, USA. Jeanne has bred several top U.S. Champions, including “Bark” (MBISS & BIS Am Can Ch Moonlighter’s Ima Bark Star TT) and “Stanley” (MBISS Am Can Ch Moonlighter’s Grandstander). What I enjoy so much about Jeanne is her obvious love of the breed, and her work with them. Not only does she show these wonderful dogs, she does agility and weight-pull as well!! She genuinely appreciates the true versatility of this breed, an appreciation we share.

While I was visiting Jeanne, she had two yearling girls from the 2006 Stanley breeding, and I fell in love with Sider! After much visiting and watching the Moonlighter dogs (including Sider’s mother AND grandmother), Jeanne and I agreed that Sider would come to Canada and become the second foundation girl of Sershan Samoyeds.

With only one previous US show under her belt as a puppy, Sider proved her worth here in Canada in short order as a ‘yearling’ at 16 months old. Her first show, first 2 days in the ring, she won Best of Breed!

Her second show, she won Best of Winners the first 2 days, earning her Canadian Championship in only two weekends!!

In December/08, Sider produced our second litter at Sershan Samoyeds, sired by Tundra. The results were impressive, including;

           “Taiga” – Can. Ch. Sershan’s White Lightning

           “Finnigan” – Sershan’s Miller Light, RN 

(See their individual pages for more information.)

Just over 2 years later, we bred Sider to Bowen, who is Tundra’s son.  The litter was born in March, 2011, and the results were even more exciting!

Sider has won my respect as a real working dog and she works hard in every position on the sled team; she excels at wheel, works well as a lead dog, and pulls just as hard in team.  Sider is a great all-around sled dog, and truly a wonderful girl to have around.  Her favourite playmates are the twin boys!
