Still no dog shows on the horizon, but we are hopeful there will be some outdoor summer shows. Canadian Dog Fancier online magazine is devoting this week’s issue to northern breeds, featuring the Siberian Husky. I have had four gorgeous ads designed by Niome Dubois for the upcoming issue.
It is a good thing I have my antidepressants in the form of two beautiful pups as I lost my Mom on December 29 2020, one of my good dog show friends Glenda on January 14 and my husband’s Flat Coat Ret on January 15. Hoping 2021 will be brighter in the future!
Tinsel and 3D blessed us with 2 lovely pups on December 8 2020. 1 Girl (Jo-D) and 1 Boy (Brooks)
Some very sad news this month, Kirby developed Pyometra (Uterine Infection) and sadly lost her litter of 4 pups and had to be spayed.
Mike and I managed to get to Sherwood Park to see the Ophthalmologist with 5 of our dogs, and happy to report they all CLEARED!
The snow has arrived, much too soon for my liking, but the DOGS LOVE IT! Kicker turned 2 on October 2nd and had his hips and elbows evaluated by OFA and we are super pleased his results have come back Excellent and Normal!
We managed to get to one 2 day show in southern Alberta – the Rocky Mountain Working and Herding Specialty. Caper was awarded Best of Opposite Sex in both shows, Rumor was warded Select Bitch in Both shows, taking her to 10 Grand Champion points, and Timex picked up 2 points for Winners Dog on the second show, and was Reserve Winners Dog on the first show. He sister Dana?Kiska won a Best Puppy in Breed and a Reserve Winners Bitch. Great to get together with some dog show friends.
Well to say 2020 has not turned out like I had planned would be a huge understatement. I had so many plans!
March – Battle River Kennel Club conformation show in Camrose Alberta. Cancelled.
April – Canadian National Siberian Specialty in Thunder Bay Ontario. Cancelled.
May to August – a host of other western Canadian shows. Cancelled
September – American National Siberian Specialty in Michigan. Cancelled.
Super disappointed and yet also thankful that my husband and I are in good health and both continue to be employed. Have been busy cancelling flights, hotel rooms, rental cars, etc.
Will stay at home this fall/winter and raise a couple of well bred litters instead!
Stay Safe everyone!

June 2019 –
Early June saw three of the four spring litter pups going to their new homes. Lily’s new Dad flew up to meet me in Fort St John and she is enjoying her new family on Vancouver Island. Freki’s Dad drove up and spent the night with us and he is loving his new big sister Ghost in Prince Rupert. Mike and I flew with Trigger to Toronto where we were met by my good friend Theresa, from Illinois as she had driven up to meet the plane and claim her new boy. This is the third Debalys puppy to go to Theresa in the last 20 years, so he has big paw prints to fill! Nothing speaks better of happy puppy clients than repeat clients. Rumor, Debalys Spring Fling is staying with me here at Debalys.
Kicker and I entered all 6 shows in Grande Prairie, and Janice and Caper were entered in 4 of the 6 as she had work commitments. Both boys showed amazingly well, and I could have not been prouder of my puppy Kicker, who had 5 different handlers on the weekend after I injured myself the first day. The first day he won Best of Breed, Best Puppy in Group both shows. The second day handled by Candy he won Best of Breed and Group 2 under Rita Walker, and Best Puppy in Group the first show and Select dog the second show, and with Janet he won Best of Opposite Sex in the Puppy Sweepstakes. The third day he won Best of Breed in one show with Tracey, Select Dog in the other show with me limping along, and Best Puppy in Group in Both shows with Janice, so he dominated the Working Puppy group ring winning 5 out of 6. He finished the weekend with 21 Grand Championship points, at under 8 months of age. Caper showed very well and won Best of Breed twice and Select dog twice and a nice Group 4 placement under Tom Alexander. Baby Rumor came along to camp for the weekend and check out the dog show business.
For the first time ever I traveled to Cold Lake Alberta, for the Lakeland Kennel Club dog show, and I did not pack show clothes as I tore my hamstring the weekend before at the dog show in Grande Prairie. On one hand it was nice to be able to watch my dogs gait in the ring and I got to take hundreds of photos. I have to thank Janice and my daughter Bridgit and friend Maureen for showing Kicker and Tinsel for me. Results: Caper 3 out of 5 Best of Breed, 1 Best of Opposite Sex and 1 Select dog, and a lovely Group 2 from Yvonne Savard. Tinsel won Best of Breed 2 of the 3 shows she was entered in and 1 Best of Opposite Sex, and a lovely Group 2 under Terill Udenberg. Kicker won 1 Best of Opposite Sex and 5 out of sex Select dog and 5 out of 6 Best Puppy in Group wins continuing to dominate to Working Puppy group ring.
May 2019 –
The first weekend of May we traveled to Burns Lake for the Lakes and District Kennel Club show.

Kicker did amazingly well in his second show weekend, earning 8 more points from the Junior Puppy Class to finish his Canadian Championship, winning 2 Best Puppy in Group Placements and a Select dog placement for his first Grand Championship point. 19 more to go.
The Third weekend in May Janice entered Caper at the local dog show in Taylor BC for 5 of the six shows and I had Kicker entered on the Monday only as I had work commitments.

The Fort St John and District kennel club is one of my local shows, and I have attended 24 of the past 25 years. This year Debalys Siberians out did themselves, totally sweeping the wins in the working group in show 3. This is one incredibly proud breeder!!!! To give you a recap of our wins:

December 2 2017 THE CHRISTMAS PUPPIES HAVE ARRIVED!!
November saw me hitting the road for one more show before the year end. My wonderful husband Mike drove Gala and Jasmine and I to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan for one more show. Jasmine completed her requirements for her Grand Championship and Gala earned 2 more points towards her Championship.
In October Debalys Siberians went to the Battle River Show in Camrose where Jasmine and Quita both earned more points towards their Grand Championships, and Gala earned more points towards her Championship.
The last weekend in September found us in Lloydminster, where Ch Debalys Sultana Jasmine earned 2 Best of Breed Placements, a Group 4 placement and a Select bitch for 8 Grand Champion points. Miss Gala earned her first 2 points towards her championship. Another lovely show weekend with my daughter Bridgit!
August 2017 we ventured to Calgary for the AKC Summer Classic. Gala won 2 out of 3 Best Baby Puppy In Group placements with very good competition! Porter did not place in the ribbons this weekend, but showed very well at his first really big show, over 1000 dogs entered! Had a wonderful weekend with my human daughter Bridgit and one of my mentors Candy! Thoroughly enjoyed rooting on a couple lovely male Siberians in Group!
August 2 2017 Fairytale (Can Ch Debalys Once Upon A Time DOM) gave birth via a C Section to three lovely boys. Alvin, Theodore and Simon, we Welcome The Chipmunks!
In July I logged over 5000 km on my truck. Our first show was in Lavington at the Vernon and District Kennel Club show. Gala made her debut in the baby puppy ring, she was a hit with the crowd, but made it hard for the judges to evaluate her as she often had NO feet on the ground! She had a fun weekend, and that is the main point of baby puppy classes. Porter earned a Best Puppy in Group and Best Bred by Exhibitor in Group, and showed like a champ in 35+ degree weather! Our second show was in Prince George where Gala had a Hat Trick winning all three Best Baby Puppy in Group placements defeating two other Siberian puppies, and Quita earned 12 more Grand Championship points, including 4 out of 6 Best of Breed wins over 4 other specials, a Best of Opposite and 2 Group 2 placements and a group 3 placement. So proud of this girl and all she has achieved at under 16 months of age! Check out her photos under the Girls page!
In June we attended the Grande Prairie and District Kennel Club show for 2 of the three days. Quita earned her Championship on the Saturday of the show winning both Winners Female classes and her first two Grand Championship points on the Sunday handled by her co owner Trevor who had never set foot into a conformation ring before. Way to go Trevor! Porter did not get anymore Grand points, but he did win all 4 Best Puppy in Breed classes. So proud of my Kirby Kids!
May was a CRAZY show schedule for Debalys Siberians.
For the May Long weekend we entered the Fort St John & District Kennel Club annual show, where Porter went Winners Dog and Best of Winners both shows for 5 points to complete his Canadian championship on 11 points at 7 months and 6 days old. I moved him to the specials classes for the next two days and he won 2 select dog placements (over two separate mature male specials) to earn him his first 4 Grand Championship points. He also won 3 Best Puppy in Breed placements throughout the weekend. Max and his co owner Angela won 2 Winners Dog placements on the last day of the show to finish his Canadian Championship in three straight weekends entered. I am very proud of these two. Joker and his co owner Maureen won 2 Winners Dog placements to earn him his first 2 points. I showed Niquita in the 12-18 month class and she won 3 Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for 8 points towards her championship. Kirby was entered in 2 shows as a special and won Best of Opposite Sex in the first one and Best of Breed in the second one. Kirby and Kaos showed in the Brace Class and ended the weekend with Best Brace in Show! Proud of all the Siberians. Some candids from the show.
On the May Long weekend we entered 10 Debalys Siberians in the eye clinic to check for hereditary diseases of the eye. Very proud to say we got clearances on Uno, Fairy, Kirby, Jasmine, Cinder, Joker, Niquita, Scout, and Porter, but devestated when KAOS was diagnosed with a hereditary eye anomaly. Kaos will be spayed June 2, and will be staying here with us at Debalys as my husband’s girl.
We hauled the travel trailer and 4 dogs to Burns Lake for the Lakes and District annual all breed show the first weekend in May. Jasmine was the star of the weekend earning Winner Bitch, Best Of Winners and best of Opposite sex for 3 points on the first show of the morning, putting her right onw 10 points, so I decided to keep her int he classes for the next day. She surprised us all by going Best of Breed BOTH shows on Sunday to earn 6 Grand Championship points. Porter won 2 Winners Dog for 2 single points, taking him to 6 points and Max, with his Co owner Angela won 2 Winners dog and 2 Best of Opposite sex defeating a mature male special for 4 more points, taking him to 8 points.
April saw us travelling to Chilliwack to the BC Siberian Husky Club Regional Specialty show, and Renaissance all breed show with Kirby, Jasmine, Porter and KAOS! I was proud of how all the Sibes showed. At the Specialty Porter won Winners Dog, Kirby won Select Bitch and Kirby and Kaos won Best Brace in Show, and Kirby also won Best Brood Bitch with Porter and Kaos. Porter was undefeated in all shows for Winners Dog and he brought home 4 single points. Jasmine won 3 reserve winners bitch from the Bred By class. Kirby won Best of Breed and Group 2 under Mrs Polly Smith for 105 top dog points. Great weekend for Debalys Siberians.
November and December passed in a blur with 6 puppies in the house, and the second weekend in December saw us on the road with four of the pups going to their forever homes. Two of the special Storm puppies will be staying here with us here at Debalys.
October 14 we welcomed in the STORM litter ( Kirby X Titan) during an early snow storm. 4 males and 2 females. Kirby is proving herself to be an amazing second time mom, and the pups all tripled their birth weight by 16 days old.
I also allowed Titan to stand at stud to an outside female bred by Sarah and Teghyn Kube of SnowDreams Siberians in Charlie Lake, and he blessed their kennel with 3 boys and 2 girls 🙂
September starts with a bang – NEW Can Ch Debalys Princess Cinderella with my dear friend Ann and I and all her puppy group ribbons.
July 2016 is on it’s way out, and we wrapped up our scheduled show in Prince George this past weekend. Fairytale and Kirby both competed in the specials ring for Grand Championship points, and Kirby finished with 24 points at the end of the weekend and a group 3 placement. Fairy earned another 6 points, taking her to 8! Jasmine earned 6 points including a Best of Breed with Yvonne Savard. Proud of this young eye catcher! Not to be outdone, her sister Cinder took 6 points from the junior puppy class and baby brother Maxi could not let the girls walk away with everything, and he and his co owner Angela strutted their moves to earn 4 points winning BOW twice. Special thanks to my dog show buddy Ann for helping me in the classes and Claire for showing Fairytale, and to the famous Anna Michele for her extraordinary shots of the Debalys Siberians inside and out of the rings!
June 2016 has come to a close, and it has been a very busy month at Debalys Siberians. All the puppies have gone to their new forever home and I could not be happier with all the wonderful families. We took in a show in Grande Prairie where Kirby earned 8 points towards her Grand Championship (BARE NAKKED) and Fairytale earned 2. Fairytale also competed with young Teghyn in Junior handling and they pulled off best Junior Hander, congrats girls! Was great to spend a camping show weekend with my lovely daughter Bridgit, watching her compete with her Berner in the obedience ring.
We Finished May at the FSJ&DKC show where Jasmine showed in Baby puppy and placed 5/6 Best Baby puppy in breed, Uno earned several Best of Breed placements and my veteran Quicksilver ended the weekend winning Best Veteran in show.
May started out with a BANG in Burns Lake at the Lakes and District Kennel Club show. Uno completed his Rally Advanced titles making it his sixth obedience titles in three years, but he was not finished there. He won 3 out of 4 Best of Breed, and a Group 3 and a Group 4 placement to finish his Grand Championship with 24 points.
Jasmine made her debut as a baby puppy and won a best Baby Puppy in Group placement.
Kirby and Uno would like to announce the April Fool’s Litter, born on April 2 2016 – She even fooled me, as I was certain they would arrive April 1st!
One Boy, and 5 Girls, all shades of grey.
February finds us super busy at Debalys with a houseful of beautiful puppies. Five weeks old and first foray to the yard to discover snow! They had a blast!
January 5 2016 – PUPPIES
My much anticipated litter of puppies has arrived. Fairytale and Elvis are the proud parents of 3 girls (2 black and white and 1 dark grey) and 3 boys (all dark grey). All puppies are presold.
December has come and is on it’s way out the door.
2015 was a memorable year for Debalys Siberians. With very limited showing Titan (BPIS BISS Can GrCh Debalys Dark Side Of The Moon) finished as number 11 and his cousin Kirby (Can Ch Debalys Kirby) is in number 20 position. Titan was shown three weekends and Kirby was only shown 2 days. Titans sire, Uno (Can Ch Debalys Once In A Blue Moon CGN CD RI) was ranked number 5 Siberian Husky in Rally Obedience.
We are anxiously awaiting our much anticipated litter from Fairytale and Elvis. Puppies are due any day.
November newsflash – Fairytale has been bred to Elvis, and puppies are due the beginning of the new year!
Uno, Mike and I went to Prince George to attend a 2 day Rally Trial in October and Uno completed his Rally Intermediate title with a score of 82. Uno also earned two high in class in Rally Advanced with scored of 87 and 96. I am so proud of this boy, he has never NQ’ed in a single trial I have entered him in!
Hard to believe summer has flown by so quickly. Moving right along into September saw us at the Sagebrush Working and Herding Specialty in Kamloops BC, and UNO earning scores of a 78 and a 92 in Rally Intermediate earning him his first two legs towards a new title 🙂 Two huge handler errors with the 78 score, and sadly I cost UNO 20 points. I have apologized profusely for being such an inferior team member and endeavor to do better by my boy!
September 7 – 8 Kirby was bred to Quicksilver and November 9 -10 should see puppies here at Debalys! Ironically November 10 will be Quicksilver’s 9th Birthday! *UPDATE* Sadly when Kirby was taken for an ultrasound, there were no puppies.
August has started well with Debalys Dogs, as our California connection, Linda Hause and her special boy Jasper scored a 5 point major in Dixon, the first weekend in August. Debalys Jasper at Zarniva is just needing a single major to become an AKC Champion!!!
July started with a bang with Debalys 24th conformation Champion! Huge congratulations to UKC Champion and NEW CKC Champion Debalys Dirt Devil WD and his co owner Deb Langlois!!!!!
Ch Debalys Kirby had her hips graded last month by OFA and we are pleased to say they came back EXCELLENT!!!
June has come to a close with good news and bad!
Tragically Fairytale delivered 9 beautiful grey and black puppies, all of which were dead at birth on June 20 2015. Fairy and I have been grieving, but endeavor to accept and move on.
Titan was successful in the rings in Thunder Bay June 26-28 2015, earning three BOB wins and a Group 2 and a Group 4 placement. Thank you Phyllis Pancel and Vicky Umpleby for finding my boy in group – and to Justin Young for your expert presentation. Titan currently sits number 8 in breed ranking.
June 29 2015 and Titan’s OFA evaluation has come back Excellent. Happy Dance today!
