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
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!

We didn't have much of a snowy winter to brag about but despite the lack of snow, we were super busy with tours. The dogs were in great shape and all was going well for a season of tours and races. However with the lack of snow , almost all the races we were interested in were canceled. It was a shame because we had the best Fall training in many years with the dogs hitting mileage distances of 25-28 mile runs at the end of October/early November. We made the most of the season and enjoyed many wonderful guests and a few fun local races with the four wheeler. Our season ended mid-April which was pretty darn good. We were able to squeak in quite a few fun puppy runs. All four pups are now harness broken and ready for training at the beginning of September 2016. They are superb! Updates coming shortly. Enjoy these photos from our season.
