Big Boys Team Run 4/18/21:

2.53 miles in 18:40 minutes. My boys, Mr. Cooper Lee, Left (6 years), Northlane’s Poison Ivy (Ivan), right (9 months). Both weigh around 60lbs; 24-25” tall at the withers. This was a daylight run which means there were lots of distractions out. It was… Continue Reading “Big Boys Team Run 4/18/21:”

It was a dark and stormy night (Cooper and Ivan Run.)

Last night was not much different than any other one except for the “Rain.” Ivan is acclimated to the night runs. When the sun goes down after his supper, he is ready to run. Me not so much, especially when it’s raining. Using the… Continue Reading “It was a dark and stormy night (Cooper and Ivan Run.)”

Are You Experienced: Dog Driving

I wanted to take a little bit of time to explain about hooking up dogs to a bike or any contraption be it ski’s, scooter, or your body without some basic knowledge of what you are doing. – First and foremost you don’t just… Continue Reading “Are You Experienced: Dog Driving”

Extraordinary

I find it interesting that groups like PETA prefer to try and shut down a dog sled race, but let humans kill themselves climbing Mt. Everest. It’s okay for people to die doing what they love, but not dogs. To top this off, they… Continue Reading “Extraordinary”

Ivan’s Run #9

Ivan just turned 8 months old. 57lbs. 24″ tall at the withers. He’s all legs and a product of us trying to breed taller (Faster) dogs. Over the years as the breeding pool of Seppala’s has become stagnate and the COI increased. The Sepps… Continue Reading “Ivan’s Run #9”

What have we been up to?

I couldn’t be prouder of my friend and kennel partner. Some dogs have it all, and it takes a great owner/breeder to bring that out. Hannah’s new champion Acacia, “Northlane’s Tilting the Hourglass.” Service dog, Lead sled dog, team member of Hannah’s second win… Continue Reading “What have we been up to?”

49th Iditarod

I’ve been engrossed in the drama of this race. Dallas Seavey wins number 5. That hasn’t been done in 30 years and he is only 34 years old. He posted daily videos recorded in advance and released on that day of racing. It’s like… Continue Reading “49th Iditarod”

Dog Food alert

It’s getting almost impossible to trust any type of dog food. I cook my own for the most part. I suggest you read this if you are using grain free food. You have to make up your own mind about it. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/fda-continues-investigation-dog-heart-damage-linked-diet-n1255196?fbclid=IwAR1NZ-3Qc-cRy3e63Z6sq_WGb48JNy-yuysWOnE3HO4K0vf7uTGSWR0p0d4
