WOW, a lot has happened since our last update. We moved down to Iron River, WI at Windigo Kennels & Outfitters back in April. Our dog yard is separate from theirs with a few of their dogs that I work with in our team. This year we will be running 10 and 8 dog sprint races and also open class with Windigo dogs when Steve is not racing. We have two new athletes! Angel and Barracuda. Angel came from Angela Manderfield, we’re hoping she is going to be a brood bitch and make our team at the same time. Barracuda came from Windigo, born on June 10, 2010. Here are some photos!
