The Fine Madness of Running Dogs - Part 2

Now our place became real international meeting point for sled dog enthusiasts :) A week after Alexandra and Torsten arrived, our dear friends Ola Lindgren and Gunilla came with their 9 huskies, for what we already call "the tradition" of a holiday the last week of March.

Running dogs in the morning, mid day and afternoon, talking dogs, discussing races, evaluating the past season, snuggling with the huskies, some great cooking, some great laughs, a real dog-week :)
Katerina´s team led by Galena and Krtek
We had some real boot-camp training experiences, such as hooking up many teams side by side together in our dog yard, or head-on passings, such as the one on the picture below.

There are loads of photos from the mushing week in the Picassa album:
You can also read about Ola´s adventures and see some of his photos on their kennel´s website:
Happy Trails and thank you for a great week with great company!
