RUNNING! Pulling, eating, playing in the snow
Hot, humid summer days. Would rather be in the snow, running in front of the sled or ATV
Cats! No, cow hooves, tennis balls and pig ears.
Diamond Naturals Extreme Athlete. Various "nasty" treats like chicken skins and beef fat.
Anywere they can run! Usually on the road for 2-4 miles.
Sit. House. Gee. Haw. Whoa, if theyre really good!
Well, about 8 years ago, I became fascinated with dog sledding. So in 1998, we got Dakota. Three years later, we met a mushing family, who kindly gave us Aurora and on old beat up ATV. A year later, the same musher's dog had puppies. So I was given Ranger. This summer, in 2005, I went up to Alaska. While staying at my friends (same people who gave me Aurora and Ranger) they got a phone call from thier friends, wondering if they needed a lead dog. They didnt, but I did. So I got Babylon and flew him home.
And now Snowball and Cider! These two I got in Eastern Iowa from a guy who was reducing his kennel. He had 7 dogs for sale, and out of those 7, I of course picked Cider and Snowball!
Well, as luck would have it, Snowy was accidentally bred by Ranger. This resulted in 6 beautiful pups! Unfortunatly, one pup died when she was 3 days. She wasn't right from the beginning, and despite hand nursing her every 1 1/2 hours she passed on. We gave away another pup, and are keeping 4 of them.
Dakota, born in 1998. His great Grand father ran in the Iditarod, a 1100 mile sled dog race across Alaska. Dakota is a really sweet dog. And out of all the dogs, he loves to dig the most! He has dug himself a moat around his house!
Aurora, born in 1999, mother ran in the Yukon Quest, a 1000 sled dog race across Alaska and the Yukon. Aurora loves people. She loves to try and lean every part of her body against you. When she gets really happy, she grunts.
Ranger, born in 2002. Aurora is Rangers aunt. Ranger is such a silly boy. Still has the "puppy mind" this pup will never grow up! Loves to jump on his house and put his front paws on your shoulders and lick you to death.
Babylon, born in 1995. Ran the 1997 Iditarod on the winning team! Babylon, like the ancient city, is still kind of a mystery. He is a great dog, loves to be around people, but is lacking in self confidence. I think the plane ride home shook him up a bit too much. We're working on building him back up by taking on walks off leash. Yes, he is a husky that can be trusted off leash.
Cider is a yappy dog. He's Snowballs brother. Cider is a very sweet dog, and the same is true for Snowball. They both have some really good sprint racing lines!
Gremlin, Nova, Cheyenne, and Sierra are all from Snowball's "oops" litter. These pups are excellent to work with and are great runners. They really the best group of dogs!
The dog is never wrong!
