Dog cookies, Iditarod and other things
Been trying to get the dogs out at least every other day for walks, and spending at least an hour a day in the dog yard playing and running with them besides them being able to spend the rest of the days and nights in the house if they so please. My bond with the pack is stronger than ever and it is fun and amazing to be a part of their social interaction. They never cease to amaze me with their devotion and loving natures.
Ghost is growing by the day and his adult coat is almost in. He has the most beautiful pattern, and it accents his lines well. He is going to be one striking boy!
Bandit has been doing well, and we hope he will continue to do well now that we know exactly what level of medication he has to be at. So though we are busy with spring planting, cleaning and repairs, at least we are not in a state of emergency.
On the mushing front, I have been very happy to follow the Iditarod with an insider package. Just wish I had more time to use it. However, today has been very riviting, and I hope to watch the live finish in just a few hours. Aliy has given Dallas Seavy a run for his money, but unless he has a mishap, it looks like Dallas will take the win. It is still a running game between Aliy and Ramey Smythe for second though, but she's staying a constant mileage ahead of him. This has been one of the most exciting races in years!
