Community dog sled race

Community sled dog race! Mush kids mush!
We were unable to have the Easter sled dog race because it was freezing (literally below zero), and snowing.

We were able to have it on April 18th and it was beautiful. So beautiful I came home with red cheeks and nose not from frostbite but from SUN!!!

Here is Isa getting ready to race. She took second in her age group. Not too bad. We figure she is ready to race the Iditarod next year.....

For those of you who do not know what a "real" sled dog looks like, well here they are! These are some of Middy's dogs that ran the Iditarod this year. They might not look like much but they are all energy and power!

Of course some of the kids were more interested in horsepower instead of dog power.

Jeremy raced but I was not there to get pictures. He tells me he came in second too. A much better showing then last year when he came in last. Maybe we are starting to adapt.
