Funny weather has been upon us here in Fort Nelson, after opening the golf club last week, we were closed over the long
weekend, after a low pressure brought cooling temps and percipitation, which made for 3 inches of snow that blanketed
the entire area. some areas south and north received 6+ inches. course reopened yesterday, and temps are on the rise again.
hard to believe the days will be getting shorter in 1 month.....
with the cooler temps, I have been running dogs in team, mostly last years pups, and a few yearlings, its amazing
to see how good these dogs are, considering the were not even born at this time last year. That's one thing I like about being
a dog breeder and trainer, the speed in which pups develop., from babies, to race teams in 18 months.
have no new puppies yet- first litter is expected any day now, 3 more should show signs of being bred in the next few
weeks, and i have recently bred 2 more. Our main studs to breed with this season will be:
Lance- he is a proven
stud, with some of his offspring on our teams already, all pups are good sized, and very friendly, just what I want.
Lyle,- bred twice last year, and I am very happy with his pups, he has 17 offspring, and all are good size, friendly and
good running dogs.
Eddy- only 3 years old, but already a wold champion, Ed raced every heat of every race this
year, and had 2 other litter mates do the same. his father is PRIDE, and mother is ERIN. eddy has the size that I want,
the speed that is needed, and attitude that's desired. I have bred him twice this season.
in other news- I received email,from friends in Tanana, where they just went through a major flooding of there village,
after looking at pictures, its amazing to see the volume of water and Ice. it will be along time to rebuild for some people
lost many possessions.
today I will be going to a gold tourney in Peace River, 600 kms south
east from here. there is 4 locals going down, and it should be a good weekend,with early bedtimes, and plenty of water...
