Sugar Kane Slideshow

Sugar’s Pedigree 

What’s in a name – Our second litter of Zeus puppies (whelped by Misty) produced a wonderfully consistent litter in type and temperament. We spent hours evaluating these puppies for show and pet homes, having to look at every detail they were so alike. The very special yellow girl we kept wore the magenta ric rac and was commonly referred to as “Genta”. She was a favorite of the kids that came to visit because of her loving and playful personality. The litter theme was movies. And what name better fitting for this blonde bombshell than the character name for Marilyn Monroe in the movie “Some Like It Hot” – Sugar Kane Kowalczyk. And that’s how Misty Mountain Some Like It Hot – Sugar Kane – was born.

Life With Sugar Kane

Sugar Kane is our favorite dog. One of 13 wonderful puppies from our Grand Champion Zeus and Misty. She has some nice traits from her mother and father, especially her temperament. When Sugar was just 6 months old, she was gently playing with 5 week old pups, welcoming them to the world and showing them the ropes. She’s wonderfully well-mannered, attentive, and loves to meet new people (she actually insists on it! And you are an instant friend!). Sugar loves the water and swims with gusto – she is already 20 yards out before you throw the bumper. She is a very special girl.


Sugar Kane equally enjoys being in the show ring; she gets so excited when her show collar goes on. In the ring, she reminds us a lot of her father (Zeus) as she has the same silhouette and graceful movement. Big paws to fill! Sugar has been fortunate to be in the ribbons for most of the puppy classes she’s entered, including taking 1st place in her class at Specialties. We are very proud to have her as our first homebred champion and look forward to having more fun with her in the show ring and cheer her siblings on their way to their championships.
