Well what can I say about this guy.  I would love to brag about what an awesome sled dog this guy is……but he isn’t.  But man does he look good!  There is no dog in our yard that can model a harness and other sled dog gear like this guy.  Dickens has never taken to long distance racing however will be a lot of fun on the tours.  He loves to run, is very very affectionate and no doubt will be the one everyone wants a photo taken with.  His race resume….well he doesn’t have one….did I say how good he looks!

Dora

dora

Position: Leader

Breed: Alaskan Husky
Born: 2007 – Togo, Minnesota

Dora is one of those dogs that people tend to overlook.  She is small and very slender.  Not what a lot of people expect to see in a sled dog.  But if there is one thing we have learned, it is not to judge these dogs by their size or appearance.  This girl will be up there with the best of them.  Dora has led the team through deep snow, through stormy mountain passes, and terrain many dogs twice her size would struggle in.  She is a tough little girl that is a great leader and has run numerous races including Iditarod.  Dora can be a little shy at times but not when in harness.  A very cute little girl that has a very sweet side.

If you get this dog you better be prepared.  This is one high energy dog, who absolutely loves to run and has some of the funniest quirky behavior.  She will keep you laughing for the whole ride.  She is also probably one of our most affectionate sled dogs.  If you have all day she wouldn’t mind if you spend it cuddling her.  Otherwise best you run her.  She looks a lot like a greyhound and runs just like one.  Tumble is one of Ramps daughters and has raced in North America.  She can also lead.

RIP

rip

Position: Team Dog

Breed: Alaskan Husky
Born: 2006 – Canada

This is our only Alaskan Husky from strong hound lines.  He looks a little different.  From the kennel of Champion sprint racer Buddy Streeper this dude is fast so best to keep a leash on this guy because when he goes he isn’t that easy to catch.  RIP hasn’t got a lot of race experience.  He has suffered from tendon issues that develop after long distance training.  However he is ideally suited for tours and is a very fun affectionate dog.  This guy can also lead and its best he stays upfront because at times his excitement gets the best of him and he feels the need to chew parts of the gang line.  You are gonna love this guy.


Fish

fish

Position: Team Dog

Breed: Alaskan Husky
Born: 2008 – Fairbanks, Alaska

Fish came from the kennel of Lance Mackey, the only 4 time Yukon Quest and Iditarod Champion.  Fish is one of our smaller boys who just moves beautifully in harness.  Seems to glide across the ground.  Fish is a pretty intense little guy with some funny quirky behaviors.  At the same time Fish loves nothing more then a belly rub.


Winnie

winnie

Position: Leader

Breed: Alaskan Husky
Born: 2006 – Togo, Minnesota

This is just a cool little girl.  She was one of our first,  heavily involved in our race team in the earlier days running mid distance races in the lower 48.  Winnie is a great little leader, but feet issues held her back from running long distance.  She can be a little shy at first, but is such a sweet dog.  Get to know Winnie and she will be a favorite.  Her best friend is Merlin and you will often find her spending her days hanging out with him.  They used to lead together and Winnie has always had a soft spot for him.

Sonic

sonic

Position: Leader

Breed: Alaskan Husky
Born: 2006 – Alaska

What can I say beside she’s mad.  Just one crazy little dog.  She’s noisy, full of energy and mischief.  This little girl is a lot of fun.  Loves to run and doesn’t mind telling her neighbor off if they’re holding her back.  She has some very odd behaviors that can’t help but make you laugh.  Often she will perch on her head when you approach her, but she will let you know about it when you decide to leave.  Sonic has raced throughout North America and been a key part of the team as well as being a very good leader.  You can’t help but have fun with this girl.  Just keep an eye on her…she can be naughty.
