I got a question from Moose asking about my scootering.
We are involved with a local sled dog club and because we don't live near the snow we mostly do "dryland" sleddoggery things. This involves one or two dogs pulling a scooter which is similar to a mountainbike. The bigger teams use 3 wheel rigs but I don't have to worry about that - its just me!
Here I am with my scootery-doo that the Man-of-the-house made for my Ma:
Our winter season for sled dog stuff is from May til about September. During the rest of the year we go walking and jogging to stay fit. I pretty much live in my harness cos aparently I pull to much and misbehave on the lead!!! Although we are working on the lead walking business at the moment as well.
Ma finally got her bike fixed so we will start going on bikerides to get back into training and get used to going a bit faster. We usually do between 3 and 5km runs through the forest. I get very excited when we get ready to go for a run or when I see other doggies getting suited up and hooked up to their bikes/scooters/rigs.
At the moment Ma is trying to get me to slim down a little as aparently my waist disappeared for a while there, I keep telling her, I'm not FAT! I even have the research to prove it!
How do you think I look? (excuse the neck rolls...)
I can't wait to get back into it. As much as I enjoy all the sniffs and piddles I can do while walking it does get a bit boring...
Gearing up for sleddoggery season
