Dog of the Day - Beauty

NorthWapiti's Black Beauty
DOB - June 13, 2007
Sire - NorthWapiti's Sir Galahad (Surge)
Dam - Ch. NorthWapiti's Valkyrie Kara
Beauty is one of 'The Blacks' - Black Beauty, Black Tie, Black Top (TopDog), and Pitch Black.

This 'beauty' is way more then skin deep. Even though Kara has given us a bunch of little 'Kara clones' in looks, this one is a clone both in looks and work ethic. Like her Mom, Beauty kind of snuck up on me as a working dog. She wasn't one of those that really grabbed me when she was harness broke and was not a 'stand out' as a yearling, however, this season she is really stepping up, especially in lead. She isn't one of those dogs that you look at and immediately say 'oh, that's a sled dog' - but when you are behind her in a team, there is no doubt.
She is mature beyond her years and doesn't seem the slightest bit phased by leading 16 dog strings on 20+ mile runs.
On yesterday's run I had her in swing and anytime the leaders misstepped she was getting tangled with them - that is a sign of a dog that wants to be up front!

I expect that she may follow her Mom's pawprints on the trail and in the ring!!!

Beauty is still available for sponsorship!

That is why I like this feature so much. I have learned about a dog today that I did not really know. Thanks.
