WE'VE GOT BACK UP!!
With hardly a snowflake on the ground our new used sled isn't doing much but looking pretty while it catches dust! We were hoping to unveil our new ride before this, but see this dirt around my paws? That's just how it looks today with little hope of a White Christmas.
But not to worry...if Santa's sleigh breaks down the 24 Paws of Love are prepared. And guess what Pamela...we even have BRAKES!! Yes, real BRAKES!! No more body slams for Mommy trying to bring our speedy butts to a halt with all her might. Woo! Woo! It is a Frank Hall sled, who was well known for his internationally handmade dog sleds, including big races like the Iditarod and he was an avid musher himself. (Don't worry, unless your in the mushing world you probably haven't heard of him. We had to look him up ourselves.)
Our sled is just over 6.5 ft long (approx. 2m) with a 41 inch (104cm) bed that can handle Santa's gigantic toy bag! WHEW!!
There are sleds that may be longer or shorter but this dog sled is a typical style and type for sprint racing and recreational sledding, in other words for shorter distances and beginners.
Do you think it beats our homemade version? BOL!! Now we just need some help from Mother Nature to try it out and who knows maybe Santa will be in need of our assistance this year.
Chance, you did remember to
rig check over Santa's sleigh, didn't you?? (Now where's that hacksaw?)
Don't worry we'll make sure Santa gets to everyone's house on Christmas Eve! (wink! wink!)
Merry Christmas Everyone!
