When and how did you get started mushing? I was looking for a canine running partner and ended up with an Alaskan Husky. The rest materialized the way you would anticipate: a) anthropomorphic feelings your dog is lonely b) the acquisition of a second sled dog c) the realization your dogs aren’t tired after running with you and you need to reconsider their exercise plan (before they ruin all the furniture) d) pick up and move to Montana so sled dogs can be sled dogs!

What have been your mushing highlights? Learning something new about how to be a better musher each season.

Future Goals Represent my dogs to the best of my ability.
