I was up visiting with Jinx the other day checking out how her retirement was going. She is next to her old leading partner, Dasher and young Crampling sisters, Falcon and Ewok.
Jinx indicated that she didn't much care for the puppies, but it was nice to be catching up with the D-Dog.
I asked the puppies if they were learning anything from the veterans and they rolled their eyes.
"We don't listen to them anymore", said Ewok, "They lie".
They lie??? I said.
"Yup", said Falcon "They tell stories about visiting Alaska, running 1000 mile race, crossing mountain passes, and frozen oceans in storms".
Actually girls, those stories are TRUE.
"They can't be!! What about the finding other teams in storms where their leaders were too scared to lead and getting them through?"
"What about seeing wolves and wolverines?"
"And flying on airplanes?"
No problem Jinxie!
