Musher in Training!

We have found that one of the great joys of owning a team of dogs is the opportunity to introduce others to the sport. It’s really an instant thing to witness. It’s immediate to see whether it’s not really a person’s thing or if they LOVE it. And when they love it, WE love it more! And so it went yesterday when the girls invited a friend to go for a ride for the first time. It was fun to see that the girl was a natural with dogs and totally at ease balancing on the back of the sled. Being a gymnast helps! After one loop on the Cannon Falls trail, the kids were totally fine on their own. The fresh snow made for a scenic ride and deer ran here and there for added excitement. It’s an experience that can’t be read about or played in a video game!
