Winter Wonderland

We finally got some snow the night we got back from the Copper basin it snowed close to 8 inches. Probably the biggest snowfall I have scene in fairbanks in a few years it is awesome. We are back in the swing of things here, with food drops due in just 9 days I am doing my final shopping and getting ready to head back up to Eureka for the final 2 weeks of training. I decided to stay in town through the weekend and do the Solstice 100 in Two Rvers. It will be a great race for the dogs who didnt go on the Copper Basin and it is always good to get the dogs fired up to race. On a sad note While we were down at the Copper Basin one of my first Sled Dogs "Brent" Passed away. Brent is responsible for getting things started for me, he was my first leader and helped make Silver and my other leaders what they are today. He was vital part of my Kennel and will be remebered forever. He did spread his seed around, he is the father of The Dude, Donny, Muade and Walter so his blood is running strong in the Kennel. He will be remebered for his boundless energy and constant begging for attention. We had a big fire last night to remember him. Brent was 13 and died peacefully in his house. Ok I better get going Kyla and I are heading out to the Tannana River today to do a short run before the race tomarrow. Check back for results from the race tomarrow night. thanks for checking in


Hi Brent, Congrats on your CB 300 finish! You and the dogs are off to a great start for the season! We've been on a 10-day road trip here in Baja so computer access has been a bit sketchy, but we have kept up with you and the dogs and cheered you on with a lot of cervesas and margaritas!

Sorry to here about Brent's passing but glad to hear it was peaceful. The legacy of his leadership and fatherhood will live on and he will be remembered always.

We are looking forward to following the Yukon Quest -- we will be back in San Felipe where we will have daily internet access at home and will be able to keep up with the race coverage. Until then we remain your faithful amigos and fans!

Hi Brent,

I'm so sorry to hear about Brent the Dog's passing. I remember him - he wanted lots of attention, and I loved giving it to him. I had no idea he was a senior citizen.

Good luck in the Solstice 100 - we'll be cheering you on from here!

nits, roos 'n howls,
