Pedigree of: Sandanona Lanche
(PURE SEPPALA dogs in this pedigree are indicated by purple-coloured type and capital letters.)
"AVALANCHE" (as he was called) was the Racing Siberian Husky sire sensation of the 1970s. From a "nick" litter bred by Anne Wing, SANDANONA LANCHE and his brothers SANDANONA TRAPPER and SANDANONA LEDACH became quite famous for awhile in eastern racing circles. But, if you look at the pedigree, you really have to wonder what kind of problems were waiting downline for those who rushed to breed their bitches to these boys. From a pedigree standpoint it looks as though all that was holding this show together was the genetics of IGLOO PAK'S TOK (he and his sister IGLOO PAK'S NENANA are the main cohesive influence in this pedigree) and the rest of it is nothing but show-dogs. Most of the New England traditions are here, but you notice they are a lot further back in the pedigree. Notice, too, how little Seppala shows up in this pedigree, only one-eighth.
