Most mushers I know can report the upcoming weather forecast for the next week, at least.
During the "dog days" of summer, the dogs laze around in the shade, waiting...

We have some big plans for this coming season too, as we begin to map out our racing schedule for the upcoming season. Our first race is always, traditionally, the Tahquamenon Country Sled Dog Classic - which will be our first race this next season. But I intend to step it up a notch and compete in the 8 dog pro class (42 miles) and stay with the 8 dog classes all season. Stay tuned as we announce our intentions for the season!
In other news, Tak's puppies are really blossoming now. They are six weeks old, and their personalities are evolving everyday! One who has stolen my heart is little Rasta.
|Rasta at 4 weeks and 5 days. How can anyone deny the sweetness?|
Here are some pictures of Tak's Reggae litter:
