                                                                                                                                                 CHAMPION DUSHANBE'S MAKE MINE COOL MINT is sired by that amazing showdog Multi BISS Multi BIS Can.Am.Ch. Vanderbilt's Playin It Cool,"Fonzie", who dazzles everyone he meets  and is out of our top producing "Tenny", Ch. Vanderbilt Paint Me Pretentious, CGN ROMC, who had four champions from her very first litter and five from her Fonzie litter, four of whom are American champions and three have mulitple group placings.

To say we are expecting great things from our pick of an all show quality litter is an understatement. Tennyson has incredible shoulder layback and angles matched by fabulous rear angulation as well. His strong jet black pigment and lovely coat and bone coupled with an outgoing personality and clean movement coming and going leaves one wondering what else one could ask for from this heir apparent. Well, our wunderkind is slower to mature than some of his littermates so had to wait in the wings before making his show debut. It was definitely worth the wait when he finally got it all together and finished his championship with back-to-back Best of Breed and Group Fourths at Cape Breton Kennel Club shows August 23 and 24, 2008 for an eight point weekend. He finished the year in the Top Ten Samoyeds in Canada by virtue of breed competition. 

Tennyson is proud of his first litter out of our Best Puppy in Show winner Ch. Dushanbe's I'll Take Manhattan. This was a double-up on our best producer Ch. Vanderbilt Paint Me Pretentious CGN  ROMC, "Tenny".  "Mac" began his very promising show career by wowing the spectators and judge alike and taking home a match Second in barely three months of age ! Mac then went on to win BEST PUPPY at the 2008 SAC National Specialty, Reserve Winners Dog and BOS in Sweepstakes. Mac's sister, "Asia", won Best of Winners at all three all-breed shows that same weekend and BEST IN PUPPY SWEEPSTAKES at the Nat'l. "Asia"  came out the very next show and won FOURTH in GROUP and Best Puppy In Group to finish her championship. "Mac" won Best of Breed and Best Puppy In Group the following day. Not a bad start for these six month old puppies. See "Mac" and "Asia' on their own web pages.

Tennyson had a litter of five girls and four boys  born May 19,2009 out of BIS BISS Can.Am.Ch.Snowstar Ladakha Summer Songs. Watch for our "Chip", SNOWSTAR DUSHANBE I AM MINT at matches this winter as he practises up for next year's shows. Snowstar Samoyeds kept a female puppy, "Sizzle", who will be out wowing the judges in 2010 as well. 

With the exceptional quality produced in his first two litters, we are planning on more show dazzlers from  Tennyson's litter with "DORY", three girls and two boys born November 10, 2009.
