Our kennel name is "Casa del Mango" - in Spanish it translates to "house of the Mango." "Mango" was my very first working dog - a gorgeous, hard, smart Belgian Malinois who will always be a benchmark - and I wanted to honor her memory. My father is an immigrant from Argentina who married an American, so I also honor part of my heritage by using Spanish for my kennel name. And as I live in South Florida, it seems appropriate.
Everytime I think of Mango's name being part of my dogs' names, I smile - a part of her lives on in them and in me...

Ursidae-Stee

Because I did move a lot in my life, it was not useful to use connection with any name of an area!

I did start breeding with bearlike type of dogs that is why I choose the name Ursidae (bears are mammals of the family Ursidae)
And now it is funny to use it with a wink to wolfdogs
Stee is a very old Dutch word and it has several meanings like: place, city, house, farm

I is not been easy to find a name. Something with the name Wolf? Something from the fantasy world?
I have long pondered and searched for new names. I decided then to the place where we live. Westerode is a place for farmers and we were well received here with our dogs.

At the beginning we were considering different names for our kennel. First ones were in Latin. Unfortunately most "Lupus" had already been used by Siberians and Malamutes. Others simply did not match the breed with practically no past. Therefore, there came the time of English names. After the short consideration we came to conclusion that the names we found the prettiest, English-speaking person would find nothing special. The next step then were our own proposals. But soon the problem occurred. Whatever we invented apparently already existed: if not in Poland, in United Kingdom, USA or Australia then. And we so much wanted to be original! Finally, we came back to Polish that we initially turned down. One of the most important arguments was the similarity of Polish, Czech and Slovakian languages, and Czechoslovakia was a homeland of Wolfdog. Since that moment our hesitation finished – the name was to be "z Peronówki" (Peronowka is the old polish style to call the house of a family basing on its name). So where ever we move our house will be always called "Peronowka".
