Emma shares her Sled Dog Bookshelf!

My two year old daughter Emma has decided to share her Sled Dog Bookshelf. We hope folks enjoy it.  She  loves books about dogs, but her favorite stuffed animals are a beagle and a basset hound!  Go figure.

One word...HANDSOME!

Kubota is a seriously handsome and cuddly guy.  His fur is thick and rich...his  eyes so beautiful...look closely....they are rather unique!  He is a dream on the dog sled tour team, a great leader I can trust to get through thick and thin!

Super Smudge Sled Dog Cowboy

Super Smudgie singing for his supper.  So Cute!  So Handsome!
In winter he charms kids and gives dog sled rides around the gorgeous New Hampshire trails.

Feeding Sled Dogs...

Twinkle, Turbo then Bodhi demonstrate what sled dogs do for food in the summer.  In the winter of course they give dog sled rides...but in summer they have to do obedience routines in order to earn their supper.

Java Bean - Joyful Java! Happy Sled Dog!

My handsome Java you boy! Why did he get that name?? When he was a puppy he lived at Donna Johnson's with his mom and litter mates. I could tell the girls apart easily but not the boys. Finally I could tell Java apart from his brothers. He had a small black spot on his muzzle. When it was time to give him a real name I thought he was small, round and I named him Java Bean! Then for his registered name, since he was bred at the Blackwater kennel, I named him Blackwater's Whitewater.

Baths....past the half way point!

The summer chore of giving baths is well underway.  Every sled dog deserves at least one bath!  Giving families dog sled rides in the winter is hardly a dirty sport, but the baths do help the winter coats shed out.

I have completed 14 out of 25 total baths.  Remarkably, the worst behaved dog was Angus, our Aussie, who does not participate in dog sled rides or tours.  Maybe he should...  he certainly has a lot of energy and he also has a lot of coat, he is always toasty!

Blanche, who is 17, managed her bath with grace and looks like a movie star.  Trader, who is 15, got through his with no muss of fuss either, but was quiet tired by the experience.  The prime aged dogs who make up our working dog sled tour teams have been somewhat more challenging, some being quite vocal about their dislike of water.  Oh dear!  But they all seem very happy to be clean, dry and separated from a lot of insulating fluff.

Blanche playing with Emma in the Kitchen

How can Blanche be 17??? She is so mobile and social. It's insane. Even after her bath she is full of life.
We love you Blanche!
