NorthWapiti's Barq's Got Bite

Barq is part of the 'Soda Pup' litter - littermate to Sprite, Pepsi and Fresca (deceased). Full brother (different litter - same parents) to Dew and Gator.
Nickname - Barkus
Finisher of Iditarod, Don Bowers 200, Goose Bay 120, Taiga 300, Sheep Mountain, and Knik 200.
I used to refer to Barq as our 'Attention Deficit Disorder' child, as his attention span as a youngster was less then that of a gnat. Harnessing or checking feet on him used to be a sure ticket to a rodeo, but in the last few years he has actually settled down and - as I was sure would eventually happen - turned into a wonderful hard driving team member.
He is still not really a leader but he is such an asset to the team, it just doesn't matter!
One of Barq's more endearing features are his eyes - one blue; one half blue, half brown!
A very cool boy!
Barq has a long time sponsor in Cheryl Dawson!
