Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Sleeping in the Tub

Charlie’s been having some strange sleeping patterns lately.  It must be the moon. Last night at about 2 am, Joe found him sleeping in the bathtub!  Of all places!  I can’t get this guy in the tub for anything, then we catch him voluntarily sleeping in there?!  What gives, Charlie?  We wish we’d gotten pictures […]

Hot Diggity Dog

It’s been snowing for the past two days and we finally have a decent base to run the dogs on! Today, Joe took a small team out to start conditioning.  In lead, we have Boss and Bruno.  The team dogs were Buck and Birdy, and the wheelers were Kavik and Maggie.  Tails are up…everyone’s happy! […]

Malamute of the Month – Nikko

Nikko is our Malamute of the Month for October! Nikko is a big ol’ boy.  He has floppy ears like a puppy, digs holes like a backhoe, screams like a little girl at feeding time (but don’t tell him I told you that), and pulls a sled like a tank.  He is incredibly strong and […]

Lazy Sunday

On a cloudy autumn day like today, Oskar just feels like taking it easy. He stayed inside and played with every malamute’s favorite toy…a stuffed animal version of a husky dog.  Melvin was more relaxed than usual today, too, and shared his toy with the little guy.    He even let Oskar lay beside him.
