Poor Planning.
Falcon's summer project has been a basement suite for her dog house. Things were going well, she was looking at paint and fabric samples .... and then this happened... The local Housing Authority stated that there were no permits done. They questioned the d...

That'll Do Bet
In case folks haven't figured it out, I LOVE that freaky little Border Collie of mine. Yup, I have a lot of dog souls that I love and own big pieces of my heart - but that silly little, bad breathed, dirty toed, slight neurotic, waffle loving creature is in...

"Did You Just SNIFF ME?"
"Did you just SNIFF ME?" "Seriously, do that again and I'll unleash all levels of Ginga Ninja badness on you" "These paws are lethal weapons and could take you out with one skillful swipe" Yeah, KD he is SHAKING in fear. "The bigger they are, the harder the...

HAW!
I am frequently asked about training leaders, so thought I'd share an incident from this morning. As many of you know Missy is a leader - a race leader, in fact. She lines out, she sets a good pace, will readily pass distractions, and most of the time, take...

What Does an Iditarod Judge Do???
I would guess that 80% of the time I mentioned to folks that I was going to Alaska to judge Iditarod, they would look at me quizzically and ask questions like 'Judge what?' Got to admit, that shocks me. Iditarod is a World Class, top level sporting event wi...

Adorkable
I was puttering my way through chores this morning with my camera in my pocket. I managed to talk soon to be 14 year old Crunchie into posing for me. Like Bet, he is not a big fan of cameras, so I have to catch him in a very good mood. Thank you Crunchie. A...

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' ...

King Of The World
Tig and Chibs had a heated game of King of the World yesterday! "I'm KING OF THE WORLD" " Seriously Tig - you are a loser. You are stuck. I'm King of the World!"   "I am not stuck. I can move if I want to."   "Maybe....." "Now I'm KING OF THE WORLD!" "Get o...

Being a Better Musher Through .....SHEEP!!!

Who are you? And what have you done with Bet?????
I think it is a pretty well known fact that Bet came here to live at NorthWapiti because she was a flunk out at Alta-Pete Stock Dogs. Her former Mom has made it clear over the years that Bet did work, but she didn't particularly enjoy it and was not at the ...

To Ride Or Not To Ride...
As some of you might be aware, I developed a nasty flu on Iditarod - spending a fair amount of time texting, gesturing and whispering to get my points across as I had, among other things, lost my voice. The flu has followed me home and continues to plague m...
