The Rousey / Holm fight in Melbourne yesterday had NOTHING on the
Ramstead / Ramstead Border Collie weight match here at the kennel today. Round one was hotly contested from the opening bell.  The Champion used cunning and experience, while the young upsta...

Grand Rapids Wilderness Adventure - Part 1
My Dad was one of the most patriotic Canadians I've ever known. He loved to travel - but by car and in HIS country. He used to say that he didn't see the point of traveling to other countries until he had seen all of Canada (though he did badly want to go t...

First Time Leader
I've explained lots over the years about how I start new leaders, so I won't go through it all again but I had Ditto in lead for the first time this morning and thought I'd share a few pictures!  Surrounded by my TOP leaders it will be very hard for things ...

It Began With a Bit of Drama.
Yesterday a big storm and a bunch of hail hit the kennel. Not good for the gardens... BUT .... GREAT for sled dogs!!! We had a pretty lovely run... Until.... The tree was still partially attached, so Plan A was to take my ax and fully detach it. Down on the...

Live in the Fast Lane
I think when you are experienced at something, things slow down. An experienced person watches the events of their experience happen in near slow motion - the more experience, the slower things happen. The less experience you have at a task, the faster it h...

Cool Runnings!!!
It is that time of year when the temperatures start to creep up the scale and we reluctantly, sometimes too reluctantly, scale back our runs with our canine athletes! I've seen a lot online lately about 'magic formulas' to help you decide when it is 'safe' ...

Grand Rapids Wilderness Adventure - Part 2
Key in the history of the Athabasca River is the Grand Rapids, a Class VI (unnavigable) rapids a bit over 150 miles down river from the town of Athabasca. The crafty Hudson Bay Co (who at one time in history owned 6% of the world's land surface) build a mil...

I'm Such a SUCKER!!
For years my friend Lisa has been bragging to me that 'her sport' (herding) has much better weather than 'my sport'. As I sat in her house hunched over a cup of coffee warming up while my team camped in her yard for a few hours or sat on her couch telling t...

This One is Just Right...
It's been a hot summer. Usually I can get a few teams out in July, but it isn't looking like that will be the case this July. Temperatures just haven't been cooperative. We are passing time trying to stay in shape and trying to stay cool. Snap says holes he...

That'll Do Bet
