Hot Diggity Dog

It’s been snowing for the past two days and we finally have a decent base to run the dogs on!

Today, Joe took a small team out to start conditioning.  In lead, we have Boss and Bruno.  The team dogs were Buck and Birdy, and the wheelers were Kavik and Maggie.  Tails are up…everyone’s happy!

Kavik and Maggie haven’t been on an arctic expedition yet, but this year Kavik will definitely go along.  He’s is one tough dude.  He pulls with the strength of two dogs.

Maggie is a malamute that we got a while back from the Malamute Rescue of Alaska after her owner had passed away unexpectedly.  As with all rescue dogs, she’s taken some time to warm up to the other mals in the dog yard, but she is fitting in just fine now.  Maggie will probably stay home with me another year before venturing off into the wilds of the arctic with the expedition team.  :)  She’s a sweetie.

While the team stopped to take a breather, Maggie and Kavik posed nicely for the camera (Maggie’s the one standing up).

    Seems Kavik is having to rest because he pulls so hard, and Maggie is just a princess. What beautiful shots!
