BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Saturday, 9 February 2008
We had a fun visit today to the Kearney Dog Sled Races. Light snow and fairly mild temperatures made it enjoyable to stand along the track and enjoy the sight of well trained athletes running their hearts out. And one adorable little 'dog' pulling her own sled!
As a long time dog fancier and former obedience and agility competitor with my two dogs: Callie & Briar (Callie, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, passed away in July 2006 and Briar, the Brittany, is now a maturing gentleman of 10), I still love the dog sports and enjoy seeing Rowan's delight in them as well.

Rowan and I stood along side the start line and she called out 'MUSH' to the teams going out and clapped for those returning (and ate some dirty snowbank snow~ once when I told her not to eat the snow as it had gas fumes from the snowmobiles and dog pee in it, she turned to me, took a big bite and grinned "I LOVE dog pee!").

One of the highlights of this year's races was the participation of the Jamaican Dogsled Team. Yep, you read it right. Gets the same reaction as Jamaican BOBsled team, doesn't it?
