Every sled dog kennel is different.

But, ironically, the dogs usually match the personality of the owner. 

 Sled dogs pick up the personality of the place

And pick up on the pace of the place.

Thank you Cindy! I hope you enjoy this snowy (at least in our northern part of the state) Michigan March day! We have our last dogsledding tour scheduled today, before the Maple syrup season is upon us.

Sherry, your photos are always very impressive...but the captions you choose to go along with them are absolutely beautiful. I love your blogs. I'm a little bit late, but I thought the last one, "Caprine Cuddlin'", would make a charming picture book. Enjoy your day. Cindy

Thanks Nebraska Dave ~ yes, we have 22 Siberians and Alaskans in our kennel. I would say the average age is 9, but don't let that fool you. Our main leaders are 12, and they are strong and fast. We do dogsledding tours and folks are always amazed at their age, as they wisk them down the trail! :) Yes, even though we had single digit temps last night, spring is in the air. I, too, am looking forward to switching seasons. Ours flips to our Maple Syrup time. And our garden seeds are ordered, delivered and waiting to be planted. However, that project will be several months away...:) Have a wonderful Nebraska spring!
