New CHICs in Town

We are pleased to announce that we have two new CHIC qualified Samoyeds. Both Auggie (Solid Gold Vit Krigare CGC) and Clipper (Solid Gold Flying Cloud) are now officially listed as CHIC dogs on the OFA site. This means they have had an annual CERF exam, cardiac clearance, hips and DNA testing for PRA and Retinal Dysplasia associated with dwarfism in the breed. In addition, both have clear elbows. Although that is not a CHIC requirement for Samoyeds we do check elbows since some very nice dogs have had elbow dysplasia and it would be a shame to breed a dog that was affected and pass on this inherited problem.
