As I'm sure you all gathered from my blogs, Tuesday was not a stellar day in the kennel. It will go in the books as one I will always remember, but hope to never repeat.
Wednesday, however, was I day I hope to repeat over and over for the rest of the winter (and many winters beyond). We broke out the dog sleds!!! Wahooooooo!!!
We have had A LOT of snow in the past few days and unlike many big kennels, we don't live on a groomed trail system or even own a snow machine, so trail breaking was the task at hand. Veteran leaders were selected for this - Jinx and Rocket for me, Dasher and Bingo for Richard!
To round off the teams I had Bang and Meg; Crunch and Q, Utin and Astro. Richard had Billie and Casey, Shooter and Roscoe, TopDog and Wolvie.
The trails were very deep - up to the dog's chests and occasionally above it.
We took turns putting each team out front....
...and everyone did a nice solid job.
It'll take a bit more work before the trails are completely in and set, but this was a great start...
...and a good amount of FUN!!
