    Thumbs up New addition to our team

    We have a new addition to our sled dog team this year! This 8 week old pup will still be too young most of the season to harness up, but I bet she will add some perk to the team running along side and behind the older dogs. She sure is a cutie and very active....keeping me and my old man on our toes.

    Yes, she sure is a little terror, oh I mean character
    Here's a picture of the proud mama, our lead dog Molly. Hope this pup turns out to be as beautiful and as smart.

    Thanks, it is pretty on that mountain.

    There are a lot of places like that one around here where you can only get to with a dog team or on foot...A snowmachine would not make it up that trail.

    Beautiful scenery in that pic, the husky blends into the coulurs in the pic so well, pretty girl.

    I think you may be surprised what a sled can do these days, G'ma...

    Gorgeous pic. Mind telling us where it was taken?

    Like the coloring of the new pup. Those 'eyebrows' are cool!!

    Yup that may be true! Although I'd still bet my dog team can take me some places that no snow-go can go. Round these parts anyways. A big plus for me is my dogs don't brake down.

    Guess I am a stubborn old gal.

    That picture was taken on a mountain summit at about 3000 feet, around 5 miles downriver from the cabin, on a tributary north of the Yukon River.

    PS congratulations on your new addition!

    Thanks! Pretty hard to beat a newborn baby girl!

    Ran dogs w/ Jeff King for a year or so. Ran the Jr. Quest (only race I ever did) and many miles around his place and out the Denali Hwy. I'd say my most fond memory is screamin down the river in the Jr. Quest, pitch black, the most red northern lights you've ever seen, and only the sound of the runners sliding sideways in the snow from the tight corners. I may have been only travelling 15-20 mph, but it was such a rush...

    Cool! Know Jeff. Me and my family used mush down to the Yukon River and host Biederman's cabin when it was a dog drop-safety point during the Quest. That was lots of fun...probably more fun being the hosts than the tired out mushers

    Good looking family Grandma, may that puppy bring you many years of happiness. Oh and give her a little le-way when things don't go the way things are planned.

    Mama is beautiful.
