Nothing like waking up to -30's and training guests for upcoming dog sled expedition

And the cold spell continues...-36F right now, with a trip taking two brothers from Wisconsin leaving tomorrow morning.  As I told them today, good thing they aren't from Arizona or Brazil, and have seen  some cold before!  Second straight day of great sun dogs, our winter rainbows.

On the sled dog front, it looks like Assam's lame leg is doing well.  Frodo also looks like he is past his injured shoulder.  Boomer, our problem child who is hypo parathyroid, should be going out on her first trip since her diagnosis.  As my vet told me today, it's time to fish or cut bait.  We hopefully now have her calcium and phosphorus levels under control, and she can go back to being a stellar leader.

We'll continue to try and stay warm, about seven weeks into the cold spell (although Karin believes it's been 12 weeks ...prior to Thanksgiving)  At least the dogs are digging it...
Happy trails,
Jon
