There were lots of good places to cool off yesterday! Notice the nice new quad. Unfortunately, not mine. My 22 year old piece of crap quad is out on a hunting trip. So I borrowed the neighbor's ATV to run the dogs. Same neighbor who saved me from the bat a couple weeks ago! Ya gotta love neighbors like that. I just left a note on his door--"I borrowed your quad, I'll bring it back later". I did return it full of gas, very muddy, but full of gas! I love the parking gear on that quad, plus it's an automatic. I've been told that automatics suck for training dog teams, but I love it! I hate my quad more after every time I borrow Dean's!
Franklin looks exhausted in this picture. It was their longest run so far this year, but he wasn't tired at all. I don't know if Franklin gets tired. Franklin may look familiar to some readers. His spitting image sisters are frequently referred to as The Monsters on Stacie's blog!
Paxil would like me to point out that she is a snow dog, not a water dog. She got sick of the puddles very quickly and started dragging the team around them! The leader princess does not like wet paws!
Anvik has no wet paw avoidance issues. In his world, the best way to get a drink is to jump right into the water dish. Yes, it's really a bathtub. There are recycled bath tubs in every pen. That way I know they always have water, even when I'm late for work and don't have time to carry buckets around!
