First off - and most important - the dog teams started running again!!
Not quite as often as I'd like (due to weather) but still a good start!
With a bit of the 'edge' taken off them, the dogs are enjoying the warm afternoons - playing with their neighbours and napping!
We have had a few guests out to NorthWapiti. Jill, a friend from Alaska, came down with a lovely female dog for some 'dates' with Crunchie. Turns out he may be an old man, but he still has the moves and the charm!!!

I also attempted to squeeze in a lot of my 'off season' loves that will take a back seat when the temps drop enough to run dogs each day
....and brush up on some skills that can come in handy around the kennel and on the trail...
The leaves are starting to change colours...
... geese are starting to move south....critters are stocking up for winter....
Handlers are lined up for the winter and the first of them will be arriving in about 10 days!! We will introduce everyone as they arrive - and/or when they do something memorable enough to inspire the Cartoonist!
All's good .... welcome September!
