SnowAngels Samoyeds
Where Samoyeds are honored, loved, enjoyed and shared
We Give Thanks to Wonderful People!
This website is dedicated to Malcolm Dutterer, Jr. Malcolm A. Dutterer, Jr.

While there are many people to thank for the love we have for Samoyeds, and the joy and enthusiasm that comes  with it, it started with one day in the late 1970's. My dad brought home a Samoyed puppy.  The profound series of blessings that single act has enacted, can not be explained in words. 

On September 10, 2008, my father, Malcolm A. Dutterer, Jr., peacefully, quickly and unexpectedly passed on. This website is dedicated to his kindness.

My dad raised and said "Goodbye....for now!" to 4 Samoyeds in his life, but he was also a caretaker to mine anytime I needed him. Dad embraced a broad definition of "beauty" and Samoyeds became a focal point of that definition. He was a true ambassador for the breed and friend to any who agreed with him.  He loved Samoyeds more than most of us are capable of loving anything in this world.  The deep, sincere, sweet, enthusiastic and passionate way he expressed his respect for all of Gods' creatures, was an unlike most. 

Dad inspired anyone who knew him to reach beyond what we thought were their  limitations. He believed that all honorable things were possible with hard work and determination.  His mission was to share his joy with others, and to inspire them to join in with him as he expressed his. His goal was to leave this world, having experienced all of its beautiful things. In many ways, those of us who are left with many memories could say that Dad achieved his goal.    

I will always see a little of Dad in every act of kindness or courage, and every Sammy smile.

Chris celebrates a double win with Easter and Halo


Chris
, whose support and willingness to wake up with a wet nose on his arm, and live with white fur on his clothes, has made it possible for me to live and love in a whole new way. He makes it possible for Flurry, Halo and East to have an Alpha Male. And...he's made it possible to show Easter and Halo at the same time. He's absolutely the best Sammy-daddy on the planet.
