Waiting on Santa Dog
Karma is a little more eager

And we waited....and waited....and then what to my wandering eyes should appear...
"A Polly Pocket Playhouse!"
Another trip up north! I leave for another stint in the U.P. and two distance races, the Tahquamenon Country Sled Dog Classic and, still to be determined, two legs of the Seney 300. These races alone will add up to over 100 miles of dog sledding. Stay tuned for pictures from the trail.
I would also like to say Happy Birthday to Foxy, our kennel namesake and retired leader. She turns 13 on December 28th. This is her baby picture, courtesy of Wayne and Scarlett Hall.

Scarlett said it was one of the coldest storms they remember the night Foxy was born in Eagle, Alaska. At negative 50, the Halls worried about the pups. But they survived well, and Foxy is still going strong. Though fully retired now, she still runs along side the sled. We hope to have her with us for many years to come. Happy Birthday, Foxy!
