A Puppy Owners point of view 

I looked long and hard at what breed of dog I wanted and when I settled on the Northern Inuit, I had to find a breeder. Well, I was not disappointed, not only are Tracey & Andy lovely people (good cups of tea from Andy!) but they're so knowledgeable, it was so easy to talk dogs and once I met the dogs, I was determined to have one.
It was a long and rocky road to get there but eventually, Eden had her litter and one was mine. Tracey chose the blue collar puppy for me, she couldn't have got it more right.
Winter is extremely sociable and friendly and wins everyone over with his incredible looks and amazing personality. He regularly attends fairs with me and everyone wants to have a photo with him and say hello.
I've made some mistakes, Winter does not like being on his own, and due to not cracking down on it as a puppy, we go everywhere together. As a result though, it certainly helped with his socialisation! Training is constant, it has to be exciting or he gets bored quickly, his prey drive is very high but he's smart and learns fast.
Winter is my absolute heart dog and he has helped me through some tricky times but I love the bones of him. I'll always be grateful to Tracey & Andy for letting me have one of their precious puppies, he's changed my life.

The Honiahaka Magic began..

After the heart breaking loss of our first Northern Inuit in 2017, we 

didn't think we would ever consider getting another one but 

gradually we realised that we couldn't live without this wonderful 

breed in our lives.  And so the Honiahaka magic began..

We first met Tracey and Andy in 2018 and immediately knew they 

were the breeders for us.  It was a very emotional experience 

meeting their beautiful pack but the love they felt for their dogs was 

so evident during the afternoon that we spent with them.  They 

patiently answered all of our questions, and we left with our names 

on the Honiahaka waiting list.

Ten months later the beautiful Raphael came into our lives and we 

couldn't believe our luck when Tracey told us he would be ours.  We 

were invited to visit on a weekly basis to get to know our boy and 

had first-hand experience of the amazing start in life that Honiahaka 

puppies get.  If only all breeders were like this.

Raphie is now a year old and we can't pretend it has always been 

plain sailing as they are certainly not the easiest breed. He suffers 

from terrible separation anxiety and always has to be left with 

a 'babysitter' (and even then he often howls until we get back).  He 

was also very destructive and at times we despaired that he'd ever 

grow out of it but he has improved an awful lot.  You need to be 

prepared to put a lot of time, effort and hard work into their training 

but it is so worth it as you will be rewarded with the most loyal and 

wonderful companion you will ever have in your life.

Not only do you get a stunning dog but also the friendship of Tracey 

and Andy and the wider Honiahaka family so you always have 

someone to answer any questions and offer help and advice when 

needed.  Everyone we have met has been so lovely and we have 

made some life long friends. 

Be prepared to be stopped at least once on every walk as no matter 

where you go, these dogs get an enormous amount of attention and 

it's amazing the amount of new friends we've made as a result of 

having 'Mr Sociable' Raphael in our lives.  We can honestly say that 

it has been such a life enriching experience.

Being owned by this breed 

If you want a wolfalike or Northern Inuit in your life, then look no further than Tracey and Andy, who are without a doubt the best breeders around and let the Honiahaka magic begin for you. 

It was August 2013 at Essex Dog Day, that we first met Tracey and learned of the Northern Inuit dog.

We were leaving the show with our young Hungarian Vizsla puppy Amber after a lovely day.As we passed some marquee's on the way back to the car, we 

heard a squeal saying "aw look, it's a Stanley" We stopped and met Georgina, Tracey's daughter who had a Vizsla of her own.

Drawn into the marquee of Honiahaka Northern Inuits we were met with the most amazing looking dogs that I've ever seen. 

They were huge & looked like wolves & from that day we were hooked.

We had a chat to Tracey and discovered she lived just up the road to Barry's childhood home. Small world.  We took away a leaflet and decided to have a look at the website that night.

We spent many nights looking at the website and googling the breed.  I contacted Tracey and we were invited to come and visit them and their pack.

Before the visit there was a show being held at the field near Tracey's farm where many owners got together to show off this beautiful breed of dog.  

We decided to pay a visit and I still remember driving slowly across that field I've now come to know so fondly from many annual Honiahaka camps since, where we were met by a sea of wolfie looking dogs and I'm not going to lie I was scared to get out. But everyone was so friendly and we got to chat to many 

owners about this amazing breed & find out more.


Fast forward to our visit and our fate was sealed when we entered the kitchen of dreams & were accepted into the pack. I remember going out into the yard and being surrounded by these stunning creatures. Tracey and Andy are truly the most welcoming, friendly couple you could meet and put their heart and soul into bringing these beautiful dogs into people's lives.

We asked to be added to the puppy waiting list and from that day made sure we got involved in as much of the Honiahaka family as we could whilst waiting for our puppy. We visited shows, the annual camp, Christmas party and met lots of 

beautiful dogs and wonderful owners.

 Tracey kept us informed on potential litters and we eagerly awaited the arrival of the puppies from Dream & Ochi's litter.  I remember the day Dream's labour began, I followed every puppy born on Facebook & marvelled in the colours and little toe beans.  On 12th November 2014 the Little Gem's Litter was born. We were chosen to be lucky owners of a beautiful dark girl when they were around 3 weeks old. Little Miss Yellow was to become our very own Jet. Kennel name Honiahaka Jet's Heart of Ruby. Tracey even asked if we had a favourite gem 

stone and Ruby is my birth stone.

 Tracey and Andy are very keen for new owners to visit regularly and we were very eager to oblige, who doesn't love the smell of a puppy. It was truly a magical time. The 8 weeks wait seemed forever but it was eventually time for us to collect our little bundle so off we set to Honiahaka Hilton as it has fondly become.  It hurt to take Jet away as you could see the love that Tracey & Andy put into every pup but we knew we'd be seeing lots more of them.  

Jet wasn't an easy puppy, she was terribly car sick in her first 18mths or so, a very picky eater and also loved to chew! We crate trained her which was quite easy as she loved our Vizsla Amber and they got on so well but any time she was left alone or out of the crate she would chew. Good lesson, crate train 

those puppies & never leave anything laying around.

 We started attending country shows with the Honiahaka team and soon became part of this huge extended family. Jet loved the shows and got to see some of her siblings as well as her mum & dad at the same time.  Honiahaka camp was a special time with owners coming from all around the world to share 

time together with a love of this stunning breed.

Around December 2015, a year after Jet was born we enquired about going on the puppy list again to add another Honiahaka baby to our pack.  Then fate sent Bourbon, Jet's brother back to Tracey. Bourbon was our favourite boy in the litter but at the time we wanted a girl. Well Bourbon was put up for rehoming and after a long talk Barry & I decided we'd like to take him on 

(cats permitting as I had 2). 

Bourbon came home in February of 2016 and we're pleased to say passed the cat test despite having never been around them. He is such a gentle and sensitive boy and it's not been an easy ride (he has quite bad reactions to fireworks so Sept to 

Jan is a nightmare for us) but he's a big part of the family and an amazing looking boy.

I would say these dogs are not for first time owners, they can be stubborn and difficult & can suffer with separation anxiety but they are so loving and loyal, I'd never have another breed.  They need regular grooming and can blow their coats for what seems like forever. They don't need as much exercise as you'd 

expect, around 45 minutes twice a day.  

From that one August day I can happily say we've made some amazing friends along the way and have the most beautiful dogs to live by our side.

Get to know the breed first.

We first met Tracey and Andy and the beautiful northern Inuit wolfalike when we were at one of the many dog shows they attend, we were made to feel welcome by them both and everyone else in the Honiahaka family. 

  After having a very unsuccessful journey with another breeder (if you can even call them that) we were  very unsure about having another wolfdog in the family as we have children and had had a bad experience. 

 We followed the Honiahaka crew around for a couple of years 

and was nice to hear about everyone's successful stories and took on board what everyone had said with advice and support. 

We decided to go on the waiting list we were after a black boy if possible so we knew the wait would be worth it. 

 October 2019 a litter of  "Dreamy puddings" were born and thankfully we were chosen for a forever family for  little "Honiahaka nova Black Forest" who was to be  ours.

We were invited down on numerous occasions to see the pups with mum in a beautiful big area for the pups to learn and grow. 

The way Tracey introduces noises and different environment for the pups to be in meant that when we picked our pup up on 27th December he was not fazed by anything or anyone. 

Chinook is now a healthy 8 month old pup and is a pleasure to have as one of our family. He has the perfect temperament that we could of wished for and a lap dog as well (45kg is not a lapdog but he thinks he is) We can not thank Tracey and Andy enough for all they have done for all the litters they have. When you get a pup from Tracey and Andy you get support from the whole of the Honiahaka family no question is stupid question and is quickly answered by one of the many Honiahaka crew, you are never alone. We would definitely recommend Tracey and Andy to anyone who is after a gentle giant.

What's it like to own one of these dogs?

 Firstly you never own this breed they own you, all of your heart and soul and beds and sofas. 

They are a breed like no other, their intelligence makes them quick learners whether that is for training or figuring out how to get what they want. Which means they will try and break rules and boundaries so you need to be firm with them and keep on top of training inside and outside the house. They are so loving 

so much so they want to share your sofa and bed if you let them, which means separation training is best started when young, to stop separation anxiety as this breed can suffer with it as they love to be part of the family and don't want to miss out. 

They are super friendly and will continue to be, given the right upbringing with socialisation, saying hello to everyone and every dog. Teaching them from a young age on how to act around young children is the best thing to do as they do grow up very quickly in height and can become intimidating to those tiny humans which given half the chance will end in kisses! 

 When out be prepared to get stopped and asked a million questions on the breed, their looks and temperament. This leads to lots of conversations with strangers so being someone who doesn't mind answering them all is definitely a plus. Despite all that attention this breed can become destructive. Which can mean you come home to the carpet pulled up and the underlayer ripped into tiny pieces, or 

remotes being chewed so plenty of positive play and showing what can or can't be toys. Crate training these dogs is always a good idea even if you don't like crates. We had never used one before but was the best thing to do to stop a lot of unwanted behaviours. We are lucky in that having changed my job to a dog walker mine comes with me to work. He has taken to this job like he has always done it. So many compliments of his temperament and his looks which I say Thank you for but it all started with the building blocks from Tracey and us as owners adding to them. I have always said the dog is a reflection of you. The time and effort you put into them really does show. 

Owning a Honiahaka dog also comes with a huge family behind it. Who are there to ask questions or advice. The meet ups are just like seeing the extended family and getting to see your dogs litter mates, or the new puppies to the family makes them so enjoyable and fun for you and the dogs. This family also asks for help which we did when it came to fostering a puppy who was set to live abroad. We were given the highest honour off  Tracey to mold this puppy ready for her new home. 

Carrying on in Tracey's footsteps was not an easy task and showed just how much of her time, effort and love go into each puppy before they leave. Each one of the puppies Tracey breeds hold a piece of her heart. You aren't just getting a pet, you are getting a life changing soul mate who comes from a breeder who puts in endless time, effort and love for the best health and temperament tested dog's.

Wonderful, hard work, but rewarding.

 What's it like to be owned by a Northern Inuit?

Wonderful. Hard work. Rewarding. Chaotic. Messy. Fun. These would be just a few of the words I would use to describe living with this breed. You need to become the alpha in your home; these dogs need a leader, boundaries, training and a firm hand.

 They are adorable, friendly, loving to the extreme, beautiful, full of personality and the best breed there is.  A sense of humour is an absolute must.

But you need to be prepared. If you are precious about your garden, then this is not the breed for you. If you are worried about your furniture  forget it. Do you own a carpet cleaner, like a Vax? You'll need one. What about your normal vacuum cleaner? Does it work, I mean really work? Because this fur sticks and moulting season is like no other.

My family became part of the Honiahaka pack back in 2008. I 

decided I wanted my children to grow up with a dog, to know what it's like to love another soul and share your childhood with your best pal.

I grew up with a German Shephard and Richard grew up with 

Spaniels, so we were coming at this with different ideas. My concern over the health of the German Shepard breed meant I was not prepared to home one. That's when we came across the Northern Inuit and instantly fell in love.

We researched and spoke to different breeders and to be honest, were left wanting.

 Wanting more answers to our many questions. We found Honiahaka, called them and they were the first breeders to ask us to visit them and their pack.

I think both Tracey and Andy remember our first visit as I pretty 

much interviewed them! It's funny now and we laugh about it, but we turned up with a list of questions on hand and drilled them until they had answered them all!  They made us so welcome, their kitchen quickly became a favourite place with tea and cake for all.

My first boy was SnowBo Bear, he was pure white and stole my heart the minute I held him, he was about a week old and the smallest of his litter of 3 whites. His mum was Anya, and this was her 2nd litter. Bo had a little bit of a rough start and Tracey and Andy did everything they could for him. He stayed with them until he was 11 weeks old before coming home with us. 

Bo was a special pup and he grew into a 49kg giant bear of a dog, who thought nothing of sitting on your lap. He was such a softy and absolutely adored from day one. But Bo was my dog and Richard wanted one with a mask, so 

we promptly joined the waiting list for another in 2009, this time it was Bo's sister Moley's turn to be mum. She had 9 pups and we picked out the cheeky chap and called him Indigo Blue, Indy for short. Well Bo had been such an easy pup that we thought we'd easily cope with two!!

Boy did we have a wake-up call! Indy was, quite frankly, a very naughty boy. He hated the crate, we tried for a year and had no sleep due to his howling at night. He ate a sofa, he teethed so bad that he took it out on our sofa and destroyed it. Both boys would steal food, Bo was a terrible thief and the list is endless of the food that dog managed to get his paws on. Indy was a barker and a howler, he suffered with terrible separation anxiety and couldn't be apart from Bo.

One particularly memorable incident took place at a puppy training class. Indy was left tied to the dog grill in the back of the car, the kids playing nearby, while I was taking Bo through his paces. Indy was screaming as usual but as he was some distance away, there was nothing I could do. About 10 minutes in and Indy is racing across the field with the kids chasing him , he comes haring towards me and Bo with the dog grill dragging behind him as he is still attached. It was both mortifying and hilarious at the same time, and a story I regularly tell.

Indy was such a character, full of love and fun but very determined to get his own way. He left a gaping whole in our family when we lost him in 2018.

February 2020 and we adopted Raven. Raven was nearly 7 months old when Tracey called and asked me if we would consider homing her. She was  quite anxious and nervous, but my old boy Bo took her under his paw and looked after her for a little while, until he passed over the bridge at the end of March.

Raven is simply the sweetest girl. She has a wonderful nature, soft and kind. She has grown in confidence and we have all bonded with her. But, She is a magpie we should have called her Magpie as she steals things. Nothing, I mean nothing is out of her reach and nothing is safe. While I write this, she has stolen Richards running cap and eaten it.

Don't be fooled by an NI's daft ways, they are very intelligent and get easily bored. They need stimulus, lots of exercise and they eat a lot of food. They can be very needy, and doors are not barriers to them. Your stuff is their stuff. If Raven feels she is not getting enough attention (when she wants it) she'll walk off with your stuff to get it.

If you've read all this and think you are ready to be owned by an NI, then look no further than Tracey and Andy. They are wonderful breeders, doing all they can to support this breed, ensuring their health and wellbeing are paramount. If they let you have one of their pups, then they must think you are special too, because not just anyone gets to become part of this special pack. It's 12 years since we joined the pack and I am very grateful for the love of all my dogs and that I can call both Tracey and Andy my friends.

One day you see something that attracts your attention.

 One day you meet someone or see something that attracts your attention, you don't know why, but when you decide to look further you are led onto a path that you would never have thought about. 

 That is exactly what happened to us out of the blue on a sunny day out. This new path started over nine years ago when Dave and I were at a country garden show, when we saw a lady with two dogs of a breed we didn't recognise. I have always been a cat person and liked dogs but to own one wasn't on any agenda, so I was surprised with myself when I went over to ask about the dogs who were Northern Inuit's (NI's). Dave had his introduction later when he saw the husband sitting with these two and went over to ask if he could say hello to them. 

 During the hello, it was explained that they were hoping that the female was pregnant and that their male was not the father. 

Later at home, I googled this breed and everything I read was good! 

 After finding out more, we looked for breeders and found one quite close to us, Tracey at Honiahaka and before we really knew what we were doing we had arranged a date for a visit! 

The day arrived to met Tracey along with her husband, Andy and we ended up in the kitchen chatting and having a coffee. Questions came thick and fast from all of us as Tracey explained about the breed, both positives and negatives. After 

what seemed a short time (almost four hours) we were invited to meet the pack, little did we know this was the last part of Tracey's assessment of us, if the pack didn't like us then our chances of owning a Honiahaka pup in the future was finished. 

I can only say that meeting the pack was an experience to remember, we were led out into the large yard and Tracey just let all of the dogs out in one go, to be faced with nine fully grown NI's was just fantastic! They came bowling over to see 

who we were and within minutes we were making a fuss of as many as we could reach and certainly cuddling a good few. 

After this glorious meeting we were now potentially part of the pack and our names were added to the list. We had told Tracey that we were hoping for a silver girl, but didn't mind if she thought a female of another colour was best for us. What seemed only a few weeks later Tracey contacted us with a photo of her holding a little baby girl who was apricot in colouring, she said Hi, I think you wanted a silver girl. We arranged to see her as soon as possible, but not at her home which was puzzling. We followed her a few miles and went inside a home only to meet the pair we had met at the show, it was just meant to be! The female had been pregnant then and now had three pups, one female and two males. The Dad of these pups was Tracey's male white NI, Bear. We fell in love with this apricot bundle of fur, she was beautiful who would turn into a silver NI. 


 A few weeks later and this girl pup came home to a new name, Ayla and we have never looked back, especially when she did turn into a beautiful silver girl. We didn't know it at the time, but we were also joining the wonderful family of Honiahaka NI owners. 

 This family meets up a couple of times a year at Tracey and 

Andy's farm for a weekend of fun and games, keeps in contact via Facebook which includes asking for advice on any subject to do with owning an NI dog, on top of great advice from Tracey and Andy when things get tough! They also take a few of their dogs to various country shows and if possible, many of us go to help out, giving us a day out and the dogs time to have different experiences as well as loads of fuss from visitors. 

Then almost 6 years ago, we had a call from Tracey to ask us if 

we wanted another pup, of course we did! We went over to met our new pup, Chaya, who we immediately loved to bits, but we were told he did have medical problems. 

 We then found out that four of nine pups were born with problems, his problems are various, one being his left eye, blind due to a detached retina at birth, and may eventually have to be removed. He also has poor hips where the hip socket is poorly formed so the leg bone can cause pain when it wobbles around. His problems and those of the other three were caused when two dogs, who both carry a certain gene, are mated. Poor Tracey was devasted to have pups like these and in collaboration with the Animal Health Trust in Suffolk who did a 

long and thorough research into this. They concluded that as long as the male and/or the female were free of this gene, then all future pups would be unaffected. They confirmed that Tracey's breeding had nothing to do with this, it was just part of the breed's DNA but could be bred out with careful pairing. 

Tracey now has all her breeding dogs and bitches tested to confirm if this DNA is present before planning any future pairings. This information has been shared with the associations for NI's in the hope that no more future breeding will produce pups affected like this. It is a shame that this was not looked into before by other breeders, but at least each of these affected dogs have a loving home with carefully chosen owners and a happy life with whatever extra care they may need.

 In short, you will not find a more honest or ethical breeder than Tracey, she is dedicated and goes above and beyond in the care of all her dogs and owners. She is always available for help and advice so when you get your own NI, you know you only have to call if you need help. The last point is that you get the friendship of other owners as well, either on Facebook or on the phone

Once you meet Honiahaka, no other will do.

 When we decided to get our wolfalike boy a little brother or sister we already new it had to be a Honiahaka puppy, having experienced their shows and meeting them up close and personal at the Detling show in Kent, our mind was set. From the moment we went on the waiting list we felt part of the Honiahaka family. We were invited to walks and play dates with our boy, where we made new friends and learnt so much more about life with a wolfalike breed. Our boy was treated as if he was one of their very own puppies and he made friends with 

dogs just like him. When our puppy was born we got constant pupdates and invites to visit so we could build a bond with our new little family member. I held my baby girl Newty when she was only 2 weeks old and I was smitten. Given the option to choose our top 3, I had placed her as my 2nd choice, but she had always been my no.1, I just didn't think we would be lucky enough to be chosen to be owned by her.

 Everything was an open book, full of advice, support and guidance. There were constant updates on Newty's development, her likes and dislikes, her social interactions with the wider pack and people who visited. When the day arrived to take her home, we were given the most amazing puppy pack full of healthy treats, toys and information. The puppy pack was bigger than Newty herself. Tracey and Andy not only fulfilled our dream of being owned by a Honiahaka Wolfalike, they gave us a bundle of unconditional love in the form of our girl Newty, support and friendship that we hold dear and most importantly a place to belong. When you decide to get a puppy, you think of the love and dedication you'll give them throughout their whole life. But when you get a Honiahaka puppy, you also get a lifetime of love, support and guidance from the moment they are born and for the rest of their days by the very hands that help bring them into this world.

All the way to South Africa.

  So today it the 8th year anniversary of me receiving my first Northern Inuit from the UK into South Africa. 

It is fitting I explain our "journey" with the Honiahaka Family.

It began many years ago with me harassing one Tracey Fowler in FB ... on email ... and finally on a good old fashioned telephone call ... this took 2 years people ... Tracey was naturally skeptical to send one of her precious pups to Africa ... 

and between us we didn't have a corking clue how we were going to achieve this ..... but let me not digress ... the answer was initially a huge "NO" ... but I was determined ... I think getting Huskies in the meantime really helped our cause ... if you can handle a husky then you are worth your salt ... maybe .... I not only wanted 1 NI I wanted 3 ... 2 bitches and a stunning stud ... I really wanted to be the first (and as it transpires the only) breeder of the NI in South Africa .... I had years of "breeding" experience having been an owner of a pack of Olderhill German Sheps in South Africa (5 of them) from the original breeding pack from the UK.

Slowly slowly Tracey relented and she took charge of my 3 pups who came to South Africa. First Nana (Nana Long Legs for those that remember) 

who arrived on our shores today 8 years ago ... some months later we got Freya slightly delayed as she injured her leg (I was offered another puppy but no I wanted her - funny enough her injury was placed in the hands of a South African Vet based in the UK) ... then we got Thor some months later from Tracey's friend Angie,  .. my pack was complete. I only bred my girls on their 3rd season - they were not emotionally ready before that ... and we had around 5 very successful litters in South Africa. Not huge average 4 - 6 pups but very welcomed by their new owners who to date I am in touch with on a Whattsapp group ....  all my pups are accounted for and living the life ... What can I say about Honiahaka and Tracey and Andy ... so much more but I think the biggest accolade would be taking my 20 years plus experience with dogs adding the NI to my family and emulating their deep love and attendance to the breed on many levels ... 

This was a very successful paring ...

I cannot praise these breeders enough.

  I cannot praise these breeders enough! But I'll try my hardest! 

 We first met Tracey at one of their shows, we were then invited to meet there pack, and of course we became smitten! 

We were lucky enough to be welcomed by the pack and Tracey! where she inquired about our lifestyle to ensure we would be able to give the future pooch the best life! We passed the test! 

And went on the waiting list!.. we waited for 3 years to get our boy as Ben wanted a specific colour and gender. 

However we were offered others when litters were born. Even though we didn't get to have a pup we still went to shows and camps and party's! and felt so welcomed by the whole Honiahaka family! Getting to meet everyone and hear there story's, to help us prepare ourselves. 

Then it happened. The knights of the round table were born! 

(each litter is given a title. This was theirs) Tracey informed us we would be getting one of these pups and asked us to choose 3 of our favourites. She would then match the pup to the owner. 

Tracey and Andy went above and beyond for these pups, one in particular

( Percy) known now as Timba who was very little and without daily tube feeding would not have made it! He is now grown up strong as ever and such a beautiful character! 

We were lucky enough to get our top choice. THE KING. KING Arthur! Needless to say we were overwhelmed! So were then able to do weekly visits with the pups, getting to know them and building a bond! Then come home day. And it was

amazing ! As well as being given a gift bag of goodies and advice pamphlets and books and foods and treats! We got toys from other members of the group to bring him home with! It was so incredible!

Since then, any day we have needed any advice or concerned about anything the Honiahaka family have been there every step of the way! Group walks, Party's, Camps. Fantastic family!!! 

 Then! Tracey and Andy had to re-home one of there females due to a pack shift, and maple needed a new home. Tracey always knew from day 1 when she got maple I was besotted with her and wanted to steel maple instead of waiting for Koda, which obviously couldn't happen. But! Then when maple needed to be re-homed. We begged Tracey for her, and so it began again. 

The meet and greets with koda and our spaniel, and then home visits, then a weekend stay... which lead to us keeping her forever! 

Needless to say the pups are perfect together! Both over 2 now.  

The dogs Tracey and Andy have are incredibly beautiful in every way! 

There Temperaments are incredible they are incredible with other dogs! people and kids. 

The support that we get from Tracey and Andy and the Honiahaka family is something you should definitely be apart of. So if you're considering it. Stop considering... and get on that list! 

 Thank you for reading!

I was looking for a companion.

I first discovered Northern Inuits in 2006 when searching for a new dog. As a child I had a German shepherd cross that looked like a wolf and had always been in love with wolfy looking dogs. After moving out of my parents I had 2 German shepherds, that I sadly lost in a relationship break up. I decided I would like a different breed and began my search online. I researched a few different breeds including Northern Inuits and they were the only breed to tick all the boxes for what I was looking for in a companion.

 I then began searching breeders, and contacted the ones I came across with websites, including Tracey. Out of all the breeders I spoke to, Tracey was the helpful and the most honest when it came to the breed. 

We proceeded to talk around once a week on the phone (sorry for being a pest lol) and any questions I had were always answered. After a couple of months of talking I asked if I could go on her waiting list for the next litter, I was over the moon when she said yes. Xero was born to Saskia and Storm in May 2007, she was a little patchy beauty. She became my best friend and soul mate. I also made the mistake of taking her everywhere with me and as a consequence she suffered from separation anxiety when I wasn't at home. 

A year after having Xero I decided one wasn't enough lol. So I asked Tracey if I could go on the list for a Moley and Squims baby. 

Abberline was born in February 2009, a perfect little white girl. 

Unfortunately in 2011, Abberline disappeared in suspicious 

circumstances. Tracey and Andy were fantastic and when she was found they drove me to collect her.

 Sadly Xero went to the rainbow bridge in July 2018 aged 11. Again Tracey and Andy were brilliant. I said that I would like another nitwit eventually but that I wasn't ready yet. Once I was ready I went on the waiting list for an Eden and Kaos pup. Fira was born in February 2020 and came home just as lock down began.

Tracey has been great with advice on how to socialise the puppies during lock down. I will always have a Honiahaka puppy as they go above and beyond for their dogs and it shows. Nothing is kept secret and any health issues that arise are always discussed. I apologise for the small essay, but I 

can't praise them enough. 

Lisa Marie prior 2020

We have nothing but praise.

Me and Mandy have nothing but praise for Tracey and Andy, and how they care for their wonderful breed.

We went to their house and were introduced to the pack, and we were aware that they were watching our reactions to make sure that we were going to be good owners ,and rightly so as there are so many bad breeders out there and we are so glad that we chose them, as they obviously care so much for their dogs.

We paid the deposit and waited with baited breath for any litters to see which would be ours. In August 2018 our little Percy, now called Timba, was born and after a few visits we brought him home. We are so pleased with him, handsome and with such a loving temperament, which Tracey and Andy obviously have  

instilled in the breed. We have visited them since and been to their camp days, and been very welcomed and being a member of their club ,there is always someone you can turn to for help if needed.

For me, the best breeders out there.

James Gilby 2020

Top breeders for us.

Tracey and Andy are the top breeders for us. It was worth it to wait for almost 2 years and to travel overseas for a puppy from them.

When we pay them a visit, they were so open and honest, showing us everything concerning their dogs and the kennel and taking hours the time answering all our question. 

From oveseas we can follow every step on the growth and the development before and after the birth of our puppy, so  amazing.

My compliment on the website, very cozy website but also well arranged.

A visitor and now friend.

I first met Tracey in 2013 (I think Lily pup was 3 months). From that day I fell in love with the Inuits.

Unfortunately I am unable to own one, but I was welcomed into the pack like another owner. Since then the 'family' had grown. More beautiful puppies have arrived. I have made some of my closest friends and absolutely adore the Honiahaka breed. They are the sweetest natured dogs you could ever meet and Tracey never ever forgets her puppies and vice versa.

Find the right breeder for you.

We researched a lot before contacting any breeder. ...Goggled goggled constantly . We looked at each northern Inuit breeders page and can I just say traveling to the North Pole wouldn't of been a problem we just wanted to find the right breeder. 

After reading and talking via inbox with different breeders we decided to ring Tracey and Andy to ask what we do next . She explained we would be invited to meet her pack and they would also want to ask us questions to make sure we are picking the right breed for us. When we arrived at there house we couldn't 

believe how  well set out , clean and friendly everyone was !!!!! 

The dogs were beautiful and really friendly. We stayed for what seemed like ten minutes but was hours lol chatting about everything to do with the northern Inuit. At this present time there were no girlie's pregnant. Tracey obviously saw 

something good in us as she put us on her waiting list .

As soon as she had a confirmed mating she emailed scan pictures of hopes and yuri puppies which was amazing as we followed the pregnancy every step of the way with big smiles.

As soon as hope was in labour we all followed via Facebook it was  really exciting! !!

Tracey took pictures every day with a written update on progress etc.. THEN came the stressful day of Tracey having to carefully select from her list who was going to be able to have a pup, as the list is bigger than the amount of 

pups. This for us was nerve wracking as we really wanted a pup. 

We then got told we were having a little girl miss lilac,omg I cried for about a week with joy !!!!

We were allowed to see her as soon as hope was ok with visitors. Hope was a 

brilliant mummy and Tracey a brilliant fur mummy. We saw bellatrix every two weeks . Us choosing Tracey and her choosing us was the best thing that's happened to us since having our daughter 8 years ago . Bellatrix is now 6 months old and since bringing her home we have had endless information 

when ever we have needed it and have met up with all the honiahaka family lots of times.

Sarah Jane Reeves

Our lives changed forever.

When doing our research into the Northern Inuit breed we contacted other breeders with various questions. Only Tracey responded in a polite and honest way.

We decided to attend a show to meet Tracey, Andy and their dogs. We immediately fell in love with Kami and knew that these were the breeders for us. 

We were lucky enough to visit Tracey and Andy at their home where we met the rest of the pack which was an amazing experience. After attending a few more shows and meeting more of the Honiahaka family we asked to be put on the Kami and Ochi puppy list. Ten months later our handsome boy, Shila, 

was born and our lives have changed forever in many ways. We have not only gained a new member of our family but have also gained the support and more importantly friendship of the extended Honiahaka family. The care and attention Tracey puts into every puppy is second to none. Health and good 

temperament are paramount and we would not go anywhere 

else for a puppy in the future. Andy & Ness

Ness & Andy Bassoli

The pups never forget them.

With  Honiahaka Tracey & Andy you don't only get a gorgeous pup you get a family also a help page no matter how silly you think the question is you're not judged the advice is there, the pups are loved by everyone. They as breeders are 

wonderful always there when you want them, with them it's not pay for pup take away and get on with it, they do gatherings and shows which you will be made welcome to all and by all. The pups never forget them they even sleep with the pups to make sure all ok and all the dogs are gorgeous.

Linda Gelston

Always there to help in anyway they can.

With most breeders you get a pup and that's it.

With Tracey and Andy You get loads of support and a family. They put everything in to their pups, and the dogs love them even when they get older they never forget them. They always go mental when they see them even if it's been for ages.

Me personally I wouldn't go to any over breeder then Tracey and Andy for a 

northern Inuit. As a breeder they breed for the health and temperament not for money they are always there to help in any way they can.

Sharmayne Gelston

Family for life.

I love dogs and like to study wolves; I respect the difference. 

One day in May 2012, when researching wolf-like dogs, a random click of my mouse opened Northern Inuit Dog rather than the Saarloos or Czecholsovakian Wolfdog and soon the Honiahaka website's fabulous photos filled my screen!

I could see and feel the love that was going into the breeding at Honiahaka.

A call, an email, and a visit to the place I now call the Honiahaka Hilton followed in quick succession, and quite simply I fell in love with the breed.

LOVE is mentioned a lot in conjunction with Honiahaka.

On my first visit I hoped to find a breeder who genuinely loves her 

dogs, that is my top criterion when looking to buy a pup, and i was more than satisfied, in fact fulfilled to overflowing!

The Honiahaka dogs looked superb, well-cared for in clean conditions and obviously family.

There was a litter ready to leave and another on the way from a different bitch. I was able to meet mother and pups, the rest of the pack, and to have an 

unrushed cuppa and detailed conversation about the breed, and just as important - my circumstances.

At Honiahaka I could see that puppy welfare is absolutely a priority over financial gain. The bitches are not overbred, and a waiting list system is in operation. I was impressed by the responsible governance of the breeding programme, and I appreciated the thought and consideration going into 

assessing the suitability of the buyer, and later into the 

matching of pup to a "forever home"- another key phrase which 

speaks volumes about the Honiahaka attitude.


There was a littler due out of Sesi (Honiahaka Snow Princess) 

by Ochi (Mahlek Ochi Memorian bono fracture at Honiahaka). 

Tracey put my name down in her little book but I didn't know if there would even be enough puppies for me to have one this time. Luckily, Sesi produced a large litter on June 1st, at the start of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee holiday weekend, and a bit later I was absolutely thrilled to be offered the only charcoal 

girl, Sesi's firstborn, now named Honiahaka Haquihana Ribbon 

of Moonlight. I call her Inka and I love her to pieces.

Tracey slept with those puppies “ as she does" - for the first 3 weeks of their lives, after which I was encouraged to visit my pup weekly. I was so excited, I loved my regular bonding visits, armed with some butcher's treats for the dogs and cuddly toys for my girl. My phone filled up with photos and actually that 

hasn't changed in the year that's passed since!


I treasure every day I spend with my clever alpha girl, Inka. She bonded instantly with my senior Golden Retriever, Poppy, and at Christmas I brought home another Honiahaka puppy for her to play with! Yes, they are addictive!

In October I had fallen for Miss Silver, last born of the so-called Dream Team litter from Kizzy (Honiahaka Kizzy Kon-Tikki) and Spirit (Olderhill Alpha 

Winter's Sunset with Honiahaka). Honiahaka Autumn's Dream, is a timber girl with a full chocolate mask and she's going to be huge like her parents. A complete dreamer and cuddle monster, she is called Ruska, aka Roo Roo, and she's fitted into my life as if she's always belonged.

My Inuit girls, Inka and Roo, with their complementary personalities, adore each other, and they are absolutely my pride and joy. Both pups are perfect.

It comforts me to know that if anything bad happened to me they would go back to Tracey, to Mummy Honiahaka, and be cared for. From Honiahaka, Tracey said, you don't just get a puppy, you join a whole family: the Honiahaka Family, and that is exactly what we are, FAMILY. For life.

Felicity Berry summer 2013

A Labour of love.

To all those reading...

At first I thought I would just write, I started off with one Honiahaka Northern I have three...enough said.! and that would adequately say what I think of these wonderful dogs and the amazing people who are behind 'Team Honiahaka'.

 Then I realised that in order to do them proper justice I'd probably have to write more than I did for my university dissertation...which I am sure wouldn't make the most thrilling read. Instead I guess I'll settle for a short(er) essay and 

hope you're still alive at the end of reading it.


We first met Tracey, Andy and Georgie on my 22nd Birthday in 2009 after arranging a visit to meet 'the pack'. We traveled over 100 miles to reach our destination; a strange oasis of green in the heart of Essex!

We brought the cake, Tracey brought out the pack!

I have never met a more beautiful breed than the Northern Inuit and after meeting them in the fur I was smitten and desperate for a puppy! Needless to say a 'quick visit' turned in to over six hours of talking anything and everything 

dog, whilst asking all those questions that first time Northern Inuit owners are sure to have and in turn being interviewed (in the best way possible) by Tracey and Andy to see if we were right to join the Honiahaka Family.

I say Family and I mean it...when you put your name on 'the list' you don't just put your name down for a puppy, but gain a whole new extended family of puppy owners and friends to help you along your way! Our first introductions were with Claire, Vince and their son Joel, who had come to visit their beautiful puppy, Cana.

 You can't help but leave with a smile on your face after spending the afternoon with such friendly and helpful people and a room full of gorgeous puppies. Nothing was hidden; we were told the highs and the lows of being owned by a Northern Inuit; warned about any health problems that might arise from 

owning a large breed dog; shown the health testing certificates for the Honiahaka Pack and explained to that no puppy leaves without a clean bill of health.

With Tracey and Andy it's not just whether a Northern Inuit puppy is right for YOU, it's whether you are right for the puppy. We left late that evening knowing that we had found the right breeder, for whom these dogs obviously aren't a business or an opportunity to make money, but life-changing companions and a labour of love.


We skip ahead around six months the point where we were anxiously waiting to hear that Anya and Squim's puppies were arriving. We were staying with the future in-laws...I don't think I spoke more than 4 sentences in those six hours of waiting.

By then I had been forced to join Facebook“ something I resolutely refused to do for over five years“ and along with a couple of other expectant puppy owners, Rhonda and Sal, I was waiting anxiously for news. Because all of Team 

Honiahaka are very involved in the birthing of their litters we had a bit of a wait, but the chatter helped to pass the time and Georgie would come on regularly to update us with how many puppies had been born and how Anya and the pups were doing. There was a bit of a scare with two of the male puppies, but thanks to the love and quick actions of Tracey and Andy, both puppies survived and fed well!

In the beginning I had determined that I wanted a grey male with a full mask...but as soon as Tracey posted pictures of this little fat white puppy my heart melted. I knew he was the one and mercilessly annoyed everyone concerned until it was decided, Kiba was coming home with me!

We visited every couple of weeks until it was time to bring Kiba home.

Tracey always made time for us, always patiently answered our questions (despite asking the same things over again) and always made sure her puppies got the very best possible start in life. Either Tracey or Andy sleeps with the 

puppies and mummy until they are at least three weeks of age, waking up every few hours to make sure the puppies are feeding and that they are warm and cosy enough, buried deep in hot water bottles and cuddly toys. Something that I always noticed was that the bedding was always clean, the area where 

the puppies were was always spotless and nobody was allowed into the house without being sprayed with a spray that kills harmful bacteria and using alcohol gel on their hands. Only the best for Honiahaka pups!


Finally the time came to bring Kiba home! We arrived at Honiahaka armed with a cardboard box, towels, newspaper, toys and kitchen towel...the little fat white puppy was no longer so very little and watching him play with his last little brother before we left was heartwarming. It was easy to see that Tracey 

was trying to put on a brave face as we bundled the tons of puppy food, toys, bits of bedding and paperwork into the car. 

She picked him up and gave him one last cuddle before handing him over, whispering in his ear and telling him to be good for his new mummy and daddy. There were tears as we drove out of the gate...the sign of someone who truly loves every single life that they bring in to this world....


At 8 weeks old Kiba was almost completely paper trained. He slept in a crate next to our bed and we have never heard a peep out of him. As long as he was with his humans, Kiba was happy.

Kiba is now almost two and a half. He is everything I could ever have wanted in a dog and so much more. He is my soul mate, the love of my life and a complete spoiled brat. It hasn't been without its trials, getting to this stage, Kiba has separation anxiety due to not being able to train him to be away from us as 

a young pup, which means he cannot be left on his own or with strangers.

He also went through the 'teenage stage' of Inuit Deafness, running off to see every other dog that caught his fancy and expecting them to play with him.

He is the most loving dog you could ever hope to meet, fantastic with children, other dogs and even my house rabbits when they were still with us. Kiba came to our wedding in 2010 and behaved impeccably; he is with me 24 hours a day and I wouldn't have it any other way.


Two and a half years on and I am now owned by three Honiahaka Northern Inuits. Each one brought up with the same unending love and attention as Kiba. All left Honiahaka with a big hug, whispered words and tears. Yoyo, our Koko and Bear baby was born in June 2011, after waiting almost two years, 

and in September 2011 we added little Teddy, a Moley and Spirit baby to our small pack, despite my Husband saying we could only have two, the Northern Inuit motto is "There's always room for one more!" and boy was this one extra-special litter!


I suppose I have to end by saying I think we have found not only the best breeder of Northern Inuits, and quite possibly of dogs in general, but some wonderful friends who are always there for us and our dogs. We love the pack walks and the Honiahaka Camping Weekends, that closeness that there is between Team Honiahaka and the rest of the Honiahaka Family. 

I am so glad that we found you and that you continue to hold on to your excellent breeding practices. That love and devotion that you just don't see very often. I would never have a Northern Inuit from anyone else...

Lindsey Hiscocks

Remember to bring cake.

Wow thanks for that essay above, Lindsey that really helps.

Sue and I have decided to get a NI which will be our first dog together! 

We have been looking on the internet at breeders and found Honiahaka a couple of weeks ago and the website was fantastic with loads of info and an endless amount of cute pics which made us sigh "ahhhhhhhhh" for hours!

 Honiahaka seems to be that bit special compared to the others for some reason and we knew if we were going to get a NI then this was the best place. We were so excited when we arranged to meet last Monday and we were made to feel very welcome like Lindsey was ( only we missed the cake ;-).. The experience was 

great and we got a chance to meet the pack and  a chance to see how my allergy would be. I was covered in hair from head to toe as some of them wanted to dance with me! But not a sneeze so its all good. We had all our questions answered by Tracey and look forward to meeting again.

Jamie and Sue

You will not meet a more devoted breeder.

I first heard about the Northern Inuit breed at a burger van of all places, but nevertheless I was getting some lunch and the owner was talking about a breed of dog that a friend of his had owned that was part wolf.

This intrigued me so I asked him what the breed was called and so it was then i found out the Northern Inuit breed existed.

My next couple of hours were spent looking for pictures, which i found on the net and then that was it, home, internet and searching websites!!

As many as i could find! Which is then when I came across the Honiahaka website and compared with some of the other sites i had seen it was packed full of information and pictures.

In not so many words at this point me and my fiancé were hooked and we hadn't even seen a NI in real life yet.

I sent Tracey an email asking if it would be possible to come and see her and the dogs and she was very happy to arrange a date, which couldn't come soon enough for me may I add. So in January 2011 we all went to meet theHoniahaka pack.

As we got out of the car we could hear the dogs and it was strange to think that in minutes these pictures we had looked at would actually be real, sounds silly but trust me they get you that way, you will see what i mean.

Tracey and Andy welcomed us into their home like we had known them for ages and we met some of the girls inside the house, namely Moley and Kizzy and baby Ochi, my first instinct was how gentle they were with my kids my son at this point was 9 but my daughter was just coming up to 3 and this was obviously going to be a big consideration but there was no problems at all, we talked for ages about the good and the bad and nothing was kept in secret. We then proceeded to meet the rest of the pack and it was truly a fantastic experience one by one they came to have cuddles and all of the dogs were happy to greet us with licks and big waggy tails. The area in which the dogs were kept was spotless and in general everything was clean and the dogs all looked in great condition so at this point we were confident we had met the right breeder.


We have now been an honorary member of the Honiahaka pack 

and been to shows , camping weekends and met many other owners and Dogs whom I would be very happy to call new friends and at no point were we made to feel unwelcome infact the complete opposite and the one thing that u WILL get when you have an NI, is an extended family and in our case even without the dog. The support network within this group is fantastic and as a novice owner I know that when we do eventually get our puppy there will be no lack of help and support from both Tracey and all of the great people associated 

with her.

 I am writing this from the aspect of someone who does not yet have a puppy although we are on the list, and we are now all bar the dog immersed in this great breed and all things that go with it. I hope you have enjoyed reading this and believe me when I say you will not meet a more devoted breeder than this 


Mark Cooper

I thank my lucky stars I found Honiahaka.

We had been looking into this breed for a long time and had already made up our minds that it was a NI we wanted. We had visited another breeder and just didn't feel comfortable with them or their dogs so decided not to get one from there despite there being a gorgeous little boy ready to go that day ??

I trawled the internet and came across HONIAHAKA and once i finish on the website we just knew that this was the place we had been searching for.


March 2009 I had made contact with Tracey and had arranged a visit for myself and my husband, Steve. We arrived at the gates and there was 8 big dogs all stood up on their back legs hanging onto the gate barking in excitement at us.......Steve shoved me forward and said "go on then, open the gate"!!!! 

Luckily, Tracey appeared and called then all back into their kennels so we could come in? She made us feel very welcome from the moment we met and we were introduced to the wonderful Honiahaka pack there and then, which was just 

amazing? We were greeted with lots of hugs and kisses from the doggies and Steve was honored - Squims didn't bark at him?

We were then welcomed into the house, after being disinfected on our feet and lower legs. We met Saskia who was pregnant and would be giving birth in the next two weeks, and then we met the wonderful Moley and her 9 gorgeous bundles of fur? 

She sat watching us closely and doing a head count every so often to make sure all 9 of her pups were still present and correct. 

We sat drinking tea and asking loads and loads of questions of poor Tracey?

We felt like old friends and so relaxed that we were there, like Lindsey, for about 6 hours quizzing Tracey about her dogs and NI in general. Unfortunately, on this occasion Andy was working and Georgie was at school so we 

had Tracey all to ourselves and made the most of it?


Once our first visit was over, we knew that Honiahaka was the place that we would be adopting our NI from and we were on the list immediately. We waited, and waited for news if there was a pups left for us to adopt. Then we got the news that yes, there was one little boy left looking for his forever home, but 

that another couple had first pick so it was either going to be 

"cheeky chappie" or "garden boy"? (Garden boy was so named as he was the last pup born and appeared in the garden when his mum was allowed out to stretch her legs after her long exhausting labour) We sat for hours drooling over the website and at the pictures and little snipits of news of the puppies progress until the pups were about 4/5 weeks old, the other couple (Bernice and Richard) had chosen their pup...............Cheeky Chappie (Indy) would be going home with 

them so Garden Boy was ours.

We visited Honiahaka every fortnight right up until collection day and got to finally meet Andy and Georgie. We were made tofeel very welcome at every visit and they always had time for us and answered all our questions, even the silly ones?

We waited for an agonising three weeks to finally collect our huge puppy? Again, the tea was flowing and the cakes and treats were shared. We sat in the garden playing with the pups and chatting until we had to leave. There were special goodbye cuddles for Garden Boy and he was told to be a good boy and 

do Honiahaka proud. We were also give a huge puppy pack including toys, blankets and huge amounts of food and biscuit. 

There was also a toy that had Tracey and Andy's "smell" on and blanket with Moley's scent on plus a piece of vet bedding with the smell of the rest of the litter on so the settling in process would be a lot easier for Kenai (garden boy).


Once home, Kenai was such a good boy for a pup. He was virtually house trained from day one and didn't have any accidents at all. He slept through the night, but, unfortunately not in his crate. We tried for three nights to put him in it but he appeared to be claustrophobic and would jump up at the roof 

and try digging his way out. We were so worried he would harm himself so on the third night, after he had been howling all night and then, all of a sudden the howling just stopped......I raced downstairs to find him sitting at the bottom of the stair looking at me with his big puppy dog eyes and wagging his tail 

so much I thought it was going to fall off? I was so relieved that 

he wasn't hurt and then inspected the crate........he had managed to open the bottom catch and had escaped through the smallest gap ever. We decided from that night on he would not go in the crate again. He sleeps on his bed in the lounge as good as gold and we have never looked back.


When Kenai was Two months old, we decided that one was not enough and we contacted Tracey again and put our names down to adopt another Honiahaka pup!!!

On the 12th September 2009 Anya gave birth to four gorgeous puppies, 3 boys and our special little girl, Tala - "Garden Girl" 

(who was also born in the garden) so now we have a complete set, Garden Boy and Garden Girl.


Tala is also a very good girl but sometimes, when the two of them are together, alone, they plan things and can be quite destructive? They have eaten one of my leather chairs and have had numerous hair brushes, socks and shoes/trainers 

between them? I am home all day, every day, but still......I have to pop out to take my youngest son to nursery and am usually not gone more than about 30 mins???

The key is exercise, we take ours out for long walks over the forest every day and we do training with them indoors and in the garden. A training session is as good as a walk for draining energy and getting them to use their brains.


If you have any questions or concerns, Tracey is always there to answer them and to help you out in whatever way she knows how. She is more than a breeder, she really does care about her dogs and puppies and wants the best for them. It shows too in the pups. They are all lavished with so much love and attention 

that they are just the best puppies ever. They are usually housetrained, paper trained and lead trained all by the time they are 8 weeks old? That is amazing. I have had puppies before and I have never had a pup that was able to walk on lead and be house trained before?

She never turns you away? We visited Tala every week from her birth and Tracey was dealing with all sorts of chaos most of the time but we were never refused our visit. We always went armed with cream cakes and sweets as Tracey is so busy she forgets to look after herself? We wanted to treat her. She always shares the cream cakes but you will never see the Haribo!!!


From the moment we met the Fowler family we have been welcomed into their home, have enjoyed NI shows and even a puppy party for Kenai's litter and a pack walk for Tala's litter and friends. We now have a load of new friends and a very special extended family and an ever increasing Honiahaka pack. I thank my lucky stars that I found the Honiahaka website and made that initial contact with Tracey and her lovely family and gorgeous dogs and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for my two gorgeous Honiahaka puppies. 

Sally Bryan

Bring it on !!

Well I had to start tonight as I'll be too busy in the morning, this is my last night of doing what I want to do!! That's ok as I have had plenty of these nights. The kids are happy to do things for themselves or hang out with me & Terry while watching TV. 

Tomorrow night will be so much different than my last 3 years I'd say...I hadn't realised I needed another interest but when the kids grow up (only 10 & 6) they don't seem to be needing you to do things for them so you sit back and maybe for me get lazy. I mean I keep a good clean house, do all my duties and watch TV and play with the kids in the evening but I was needing something else I just hadn't realised it was a Northern Inuit. 


Never thought I'd have a dog but then again never knew this interesting breed either! It's like my babies due tomorrow! I have been nesting now for 6 weeks, that's how long really since I have definitely known I was to be owned by 'Chip' that's his pet name given to him by Tracey & Andy. He will always be 

know as lil' chip!! lol....I think it's a rather cute name but as I have had my chosen name of Lucian for 9 months it's only fair to keep it that way. Yep....we named a twinkle in our eye.....and we waited and waited and waited. I can say I have patience but with nature it is out of your hands. I missed out on a few 

maybes but deep down knowing they weren't my special puppy. I have sent my son Ben to bed at a really good time, it was easy as I told him that if he slept tomorrow would come round quicker and he would be off to school sooner and Lucian will be waiting for him. Sometimes and only sometimes it is ok 

to wish a day away. I'm normally up quite late every night on the internet or FB or watching a movie but tonight I feel very tired. I think my body is telling me to get some next few weeks will be broken sleep and too early's ok as it's an experience I want to go through, I am actually looking forward to every little thing that's going to happen from tomorrow onwards. I have heard all about the howling, the hair balls, the loss of your green lawn to all sorts and all I can say it....BRING IT ON......lmao......I'm finally to be owned by a Northern Inuit.
