Please welcome five puppies, born on August 21, 2022 to Spook Nook Willow and Sirius Rising Praus. There are three males and two females and a real rarity in the Chinook world being all black and tan! The puppies were born at Fort Meade in Maryland. They are all military brats, so it is fitting that they are named in honor of notable West Point graduates.
