As promised, here are some pictures from our adventures so far:
Um... Helen, that's a barn, what about the Musher and Richard?
Um, Helen, that's Chief Joseph Mountain... what about the curly tails and the mushers?
Um, seriously Helen, those are deer, not curly tails, what about the race?
Ok, at least you got the North Wapiti Logo in the picture, but really, I think the people want to see the curly tails and mushers now.
Ah, ok, here we are at Joe Hall Ford getting the truck fixed. All of the mechanics and employees came out to admire the curly tails and talk with Karen.
They all loved the curly tails
Here we are stopped in the middle of the night for a curly tail feeding and leg stretching
Once we got into town, the people all flocked to us to see the magnificent Board Collie guard... and talk to the Musher and see the curly tails
Here I am helping to prepare all of the gear for the race. As you can see, there's a lot of things to guard and herd on this bed, and it was up to me to make sure it was all sorted and packed.
Since I did such an awesome job of prepping, it was easy for the Musher and Richard to get ready for the race.
Mrs. Richard don't look! Apparently a brit with Pretty Sled Dogs is a babe magnet. Don't worry, I guarded him real good and herded the chicks away from him.
Richard still doing more prepping
Some last minute adjustments to make sure everything is just right
Here I am making sure that nobody takes the Musher's sled. I have my "I pity the fool that messes with my Musher's sled" look going on.
Here are the Pretty Sled Dogs yelling at the organizers to hurry up because they want to get on the trail.
Richard started first
Then the Musher.
Well, that's about it for now. Keep checking back for more updates and more pictures!
