Musher Question & Answer

How many years have you been running dogs?

Tell us about your dogs?
We have so many amazing dogs! Sable is my girlfriend; a shy, extremely loyal, amazing leader. She finished Iditarod in single lead a couple of years back. She hates crowds and attention from people so this brought tears to my eyes. The cars litter is 3 years old now and ran both YQ and Iditarod in 2016 and put in amazing performances, with all of them finishing the YQ and all spent some time in lead. Sullivan is another standout that just turned 3 years old. He finished YQ and Iditarod 2016 in lead! I could go on and on. I am excioted for winter to get here!

How did you get started running dogs?
My husband built me a sled!

What do you love most about running sled dogs?
Traveling with my best friends in the quiet of Alaska.

Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
We are coming to race this year!

What music do you listen to on the trail?
Anything the Trey Simmons puts on my iPod!

How did your dogs get their names?/ How do you choose names?
We have themes for our litters. The cars litter is Cuda, Nova, Datsun, Vega and Chevelle. We have a red-headed singers litter; David Bowie, Ginger Spice, Axl Rose and Neko Case.
