We tried our best to take conformation photos of the team. Some of them were easy, others didn't like the height of the table, some were super stars! Here are our running dogs for this season (the two retired gals, Kona and Blue, are not included in this post).
|ByDog's Buzzsaw Millwright, male, 1 year|
Buzz is turning into quite a sled dog. He may not have the best body for the job (too long in the back) but he's got the heart and loves it! He is a good addition to the team, if not just for the cuddles and joy!
|ByDog's Whipsaw Lumberjack, female, 1 year|
This crazy girl, Whip, is NUTS! She LIVES to run! We just need to teach her to take all that energy she uses flopping, wiggling, spinning, and squealing and send it all forward!
|ByDog's Jigsaw Carpenter, female, 1 year|
Jig is a great all around dog and is doing well with the team. Good runner, friendly girl. We're working on her confidence!
|ByDog's Bucksaw Cooper|
Buck has already got this working dog thing figured out. He's like an old pro. Calm and collected, all energy directed forward, focused, driven and loves it! Very much looking forward to what he can do!
|Windtalker's Tensaw of ByDog, male, almost 7 years|
It's hard to believe but Tensaw one of the most veteran on the team. And he shows it, he may not be a leader but he's a very VERY solid team dog!
|Kelim's Quiddich Flier of ByDog, male, 2 years|
Flier is a phenomenal dog. Fast, driven, smart. He gets himself a little worked up nerves wise. Had been running him lead but currently giving him a break so build confidence.
|Absaroka's Tank of ByDog, male, almost 4 years|
Tank is proving this season during training to have some great leader skills and I'm finding I can trust him more and more in tough situations like loose dogs, critters on the trail and passing other distractions. I'm looking forward to how he will grow this season.
|Absaroka Okanogan Naryshkina of ByDog, female, 9 years|
My little faithful leader. Okie is back this season, after having her puppies mid last season and I'm glad to have her back. A very reliable leader, hoping she passed those genes on to her kids and if not, hopefully she'll teach them for us!
|(This is the most still close up shot we could get of Paluk, she's a bit wiggly)|
|Absaroka Paluk Naryshkina of ByDog, female, 10 years|
This gal never tires and always wants to go, even at 10 years old! She'll probably run until she dies, no retirement for this dog, she loves it too much! As always, an important part of the team for leadership and drive!
|Betty's Isis of ByDog, female, 4 years|
Isis also has become quite the dog sledding veteran and, like Tensaw, is a very reliable team dog that knows what to do!
This is going to be fun! Love your puppas!
