Dog sledding Weekend!!
I'm so excited I can barely sleep! The roads are snow packed, the temps should be in the 20'sF and it is the weekend. That can only mean one thing, dog sledding time again. Not only am I going to try to run Silver and Zappa again, but now with Silver taking the lead dog position, I want to start working with her on that. The first thing I want to try is turning around while moving. It will mean me hopping off the sled and running along side her to make a smooth U-turn at the end of the road. This is crucial where we sled, because I have no loop that I can take like they do in races. And I think I've got it all figured out in my mind, now it's just a matter of doing it!!
And speaking of races, the dog sled races are here in town and we are hoping to catch some of the action. If you ever get the chance to see a dog sled race, take it, you won't be let down. These dogs are amazing athletes and people come from all over the country to race. It is a great way to really learn and observe about this great sport.
So stay tuned. Monday I will have the sledding results with Silver and Zappa and hopefully some great video to show you. And I will catch you up what we saw at the dog sled races, and hey, maybe I'll even remember to bring the camera to show you all the racing doggies!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are!
