Blue Mountain Race, Grantham NH
We had some problems right before the start and I had to
switch out Tuliq who was in co-lead with Gunsmoke.
Something really spooked her which is unusual for her as she almost always in lead.
I placed her back in the team which seemed to make her happy and
I placed Gunsmoke's daughter Tinkerbell in co-lead, it was her time to step up and shine
 and well...
the rest is history !


Gorgeous photo of Cookqiz (right) and her big, burly son Dougie
Cookqiz now retired and 11 years old is in great health and loving life.
Dougie is the biggest, most gentle teddy you could ever meet....
not to mention a powerhouse!


Rosie's beautiful daughter. She is a very gifted leader and like her mamma, super devoted. She is a natural nurturer and a very intuitive soul

Senior Losses

We experienced the loss of a number of our seniors as we headed into the Fall of 2016.  It was a very difficult and sad time for us.  As a forever home for our sled pets, we experience the cycle of life from raising them as puppies and watching them bloom into amazing dogs and athletes. We then spend hours upon hours together each and every day. We train and run our dogs ourselves and as all of them are house trained, they take it in turn to be in the house with us each and every night. We sleep together, eat together , work together and play together.  So when we lose one of our furry family members, it is indeed a heavy loss to us all.  We lost Tiger-Lilly, then Washakie developed a fast growing cancerous tumor on his leg and only had weeks left with us.  Both Lilly and Washakie needed assistance to move around towards the end. We held and carried them and reassured them of our love and commitment to them.  No sooner had we said our good-byes to Lilly and Washakie, we then said a painful good-bye to Zudnik. Zudnik was 15 yrs old, he was still in amazing good health until his last few weeks.  He leaves behind one remaining sibling, Tonka, who is almost 16 years old and is still able to walk around, he eats well and loves very short walks and being in with a bunch of girls.  Tonka is our last remaining physical link to our very first sled dog, Sasquatch, when our journey first began.....

Our Beloved Washakie and Zudnik

Washakie, such a beautiful  Alaskan Malamute who left us too soon

Zudnik left us at age 15, he was in good health and spirits up until the last few weeks of his life. Such a beautiful and gentle Alaskan Malamute

Hard to believe we had to say good-bye to this beauty.
We were blessed with just over 12 years of life with her.
Then blessed again when we got an extra few weeks with her.
She was a sweet, gifted and devoted Malamute
Exceptional athlete and leader with numerous races under
her paws and thousands of miles of adventure
RIP sweet Lilly

Early Summer Update

Puppy training is going great. They are super smart and so devoted for such pups. I am able to spend a lot of time with them working on command work and setting them up for a successful season ahead. They are all super sweet and play well with the rest of their kennel buddies. Daily sprints in the 2 acre fenced in garden known as 'the secret garden' has been a blessing during this hot weather. It is nice and shady in the secret garden with lots of boulders to hop onto, trees for shade and various hidden places for the dogs to dig and have fun playing with each other. The older dogs are doing well considering the heat.  We recently celebrated Tonka and Zudnik turning 14 years old. They are having a blast and recently taken to being in with a bunch of girls including the puppy girls, Chimbey and Tinkerbell. As a forever home, our dogs spend their entire lives with us.  We work with what we have and our joy is bringing out the best in each dog, working hard on communication, obedience and performance. All our dogs are house trained so every night, there is always a bunch of them in the house .... on the sofa or sleeping on the bed with us!
