School Demo!

March 12, 2008
Hi Everypup!

We had a really fun and exciting morning today...our Mom took us to school to meet the students and teach them about dogsledding and dog care! All the nice snow melted, so we had to use the wheeled rig. We don't care as long as we get to run, but the sled on the snow IS more fun!

The little humans came out and Mom hooked up Angel, Jasmine and Velvet. Well, silly Angel did not want to run! She said there were too many other good smells to sniff! Mom did get them to do one run, then FINALLY listened to me. I was trying very hard to tell her to hook up me and my dad, Dave. She did and we showed everyone exactly how sled dogs run!!! We took one of the teachers for the ride and she said it was great! Mom was very happy with us. After we got unhooked, we all got lots and lots of pets from everyone. Then Mom went in the school to answer questions while we rested in our comfy dog boxes. Jasmine went in with Mom in case she needed any help.
Notice the "No Dogs Allowed" sign?? We had special permission to be there. That is Velvet getting pets.
This picture is my dad, Dave on the left and Jasmine on the right.
Gosh, we had a good time! I can't wait til our next demo. A special Thank You to Sallie and all the nice teachers and students we met today. We hope to see you again!
Love & licks,
Skye and all the Moondance Huskies

Our First Blog!

March 5, 2008
Haaroo everypup!

My name is Skye and I am a proud member of the Moondance Huskies Sled Dog Team. This is my very first blog, so please be patient with me. I am an Alaskan Husky/Siberian Husky mix and will be 5 yrs old on April 10. My family consists of my Daddy dog, Dave, my "sisters", Angel, Velvet, Jasmine and Becky, my "brothers" Lakota and Blaze and my kitties, Misty, Diana and Starr. We live in central Connecticut with our human Mom who we love very much. All of my brothers and sisters were rescued dogs. Velvet and Jasmine are the newest members of our family and they came to live with us from Fairbanks, Alaska. We are a recreational sled dog team and love going out running on the weekends. We also go to schools in the area to demonstrate dogsledding and educate children on good dog care. We are looking forward to sharing our stories with all of you.
