Daily Life in the Dog Yard

It’s been six months now and we’re finding some unexpected surprises from owning sled dogs. We knew we’d love the dogs, but we had no idea how much they’d love us! All of the dogs get so excited when they see us and absolutely crave our attention. Well… with the exception of Jackson – who’d probably rather be left alone. We think he eats his own feces just so we won’t have to come into his space to clean 😉 Still, every dog has a special personality of their own which makes them all lovable. We also didn’t expect that we’d feel so natural on the farm! Farm chores, feeding time, and even barn cleaning have actually been fun! Call us crazy, we’re used to it. All in all, we’re enjoying every bit of the daily mushing life, and now that we know our dogs even better, we look so forward to hitting the trials with them this winter!

Brushing time usually turns into playtime!

When it gets hot out, we put the dogs in the cool barn. Yesterday, the girls cleaned all of the stalls with wood cleaner – and they had fun doing it!

Prophet, our oldest, is also the biggest attention hog.

And there’s always time for a treat. Jackson enjoying a bone.
