Snowventure's Prairie Knight
January 25, 2001 to July 19, 2010

Saga The boy who most of the time seemed human, was so very perceptive.

He was brilliantly smart like his mother. He was incredibly obedient, incredibly confident, and incredibly eager to learn.

He is the gold star in my heart.

Saga's passions were sledding, running with the quad, swimming and BALLS! He would play foot ball or fetch for hours! He was 100% trust worthy off leash and went for many off leash walks and got to be off leash around the yard with me when ever I did gardening or yard work.

Saga also had an outstanding temperament, playing and sledding with MANY dogs, boys, girls, all breeds big and small. Never discouraged, Saga trained many green mushers at many different events throughout his lifetime.

Although Saga never obtained any official titles he logged over 600 miles in harness -- more than any other Snowventure dog to date! One of the most special dogs I have ever owned, I hope his spirit travels the miles with you, that his confidence and eagerness are assets in the race of a lifetime.
