Meet the Dogs: Mouse

Mouse is an older female who was Scott's main female for many years and is the mother of many good sleddogs! She's the sweetest dog in the kennel and will lay down for you to pet her, or sit on your lap on her house. But her sweet demeanor is just the added bonus: she vies with Jersey for the most vocal cheerleader in the kennel! Smooth and confident in her job, she's a gift to run...

Meet the Dogs: Belle

Belle (spelled with an "e" at the end because she's a princess, not a ding dong!) is another Mouse puppy and Sweetwater's sister. She's a big girl and this is going to be her year! Some dogs just take some time and I was so excited when Scott said he was letting her go...she reminds me of her big brothers that are still in Alaska. Don't know if she'll ever be a leader, but she's solid in team or wheel.

Meet the Dogs: Sweetwater

     So summer finally arrived, with 90 degree weather and after the nice, laid back spring runs until June, things have slowed down and it's time to get on with those introductions...

Sweetwater was one of Mouse's pups that I harness broke in Alaska. She was a crazy, jump on you type dog...with amazing force for such a small girl! She ran with Leila last year to complete the Two Rivers 200 and then Scott offered her to me. She's calmed down, but is very driven and one of those dogs that keeps an eye on you. I can't wait to add her to my list of leaders...
