Malamute of the Month – Farmer

Farmer!!  What can we say about crazy, silly, handsome Farmer?  He got his name because he was the dirtiest puppy I’d ever seen.  Even in the middle of winter, when all there was to roll around in was snow, Farmer managed to look like he’d just come in from plowing a field.  He’s always digging in the dirt like a good ol’ country boy, plus he’s a very hard worker.


Farmer’s grown up to be a great lead dog on the expedition team.  The link below will take you to an article Joe recently wrote about Farmer and his antics for Mushing Magazine.

    Watched Animal Planet show. It was pretty cool seeing the dogs in action. I’m currently living in Alabama with an AK husky who can’t wait til she moves back to Fairbanks. Love checking in and seeing your beautiful dogs.

    • Thanks, Tammy! :)
