My friend Lisa says that I'm always raving in my blog about my next great up and coming leader. Yup, I probably do that alot and I make no apologies for it!! I'm thrilled that I have so many promising leaders in the yard - most of them who do eventually live up to their early potential.
This mornings blog was going to be another glowing one about another rising superstar. I asked this boy to pose for a head shot that would make everyone catch their breath at his presence and beauty.
This is what I got -
He is another dog that Richard raved a lot about last winter - and I've been pretty keen on him since he was a pup, so I wasn't surprised - but I hadn't got around to running him in lead myself.
I took him out in lead on Friday and had a GREAT run, but wasn't convinced that the 'driving' factor in the team was this young dog.
Today he ran with Dasher in lead (*) next to him and the run was just as great as Friday's run.
His ears are forward and he DRIVES like a demon the whole time. His tail wags and he can't stand to take breaks! He is a fantastic!
I am in awe of him -
(*) I have switched all my training leader lines over to Eskimo Hooks from Nordic Husky Farm - as I used on Iditarod last year.
No more escaping leaders!
