Saturday was an exciting day here at NorthWapiti as we brought 14 ‘B’ team dogs to a local Mosey and Mingle race. Mark drove the truck and gave guidance to the 4 handlers who went to race.
Helen and Gabi each ran 3 miles with a 3 dog team while Markus and Chris each ran 5 miles with a 4 dog team. There were 5 teams in each race and it was a first race for all but Chris who runs these races in
It was a lot of hurry up and wait as there were other groups ahead of us; kick sled, and two dog teams as well as several skijoring races. The event was well organized and everything ran smoothly so the waiting wasn’t too painful!
It was a quick race and the dogs were all great. Gabi and Helen came in 3rd and 4th respectively and Markus came in 2nd while Chris came in 1st! It was a great day for the handlers and tons of fun for all the B team dogs.
Some of the dogs like Odie, Moses and Loki had not been in the dog truck or at a race for a long time while for other dogs like Trigger, Xena and Comet had not ever been to a race. So it was a great experience for all of us!
Holly, Gabi's leader was waiting patiently for her turn to run!
