From the Author:

Barbara’s love of Malamutes began when she bought one as a pet in 1965. Her Windrift dogs are well known and compiled a remarkable record for a small kennel, finishing nineteen Windreft champions, several of which were also ROM producers. Her first litter produced Ch. Windrift’s Leah of Aurora, who was three time BOS as the National Specialty, and Ch. Auora’s Micah of Windrift who was WD at the National. Leah and Ch. Aurora’s Noatak of Windrift produced Barbara’s best-known dog, a multiple Best in Show and Best in Specialty winner, Ch. Windreft’s Nakoah, or "Bowser".

Sherry Wallis began showing, training, and breeding German Shepherd Dogs in 1970. Her interest in Malamutes began with a co-ownership with one of her obedience students. Unfortunately, her husband Robert preferred Shepherds. Eventually, they compromised on Akitas, which they still breed and show. She has bred over twenty Akita champions, including a Register of Merit, and finished championships on German Shepherd Dogs, Malamutes, a Ridgeback, and a Papillon. She has also completed obedience titles on numerous dogs. Sherry worked as a professional trainer, conducting training classes for the Houston YMCA and several training clubs.
