The New Year

Ok, I know I haven't updated the site often, but can I use the excuse it's a busy time of year?  Anyway, the new year is almost upon us and that means the three races our kennel is running along with the Serum Run is just right around the corner - holy, cow!

All the four-legged kids are doing great and are ahead of schedule for our kennel.  However, we have had some sad moments.  Our main lead dog, Licorice unexpedately passed away back in November and the second to last of our very first core group of dogs, Bubba passed away in December.  Both are missed dearly, however will never be forgotten.

Several of Licroice's offspring have stepped up to the plate to fill his void in lead, but it's hard to completely replace crazy Licorice.

The "pups" are almost seven months old and are doing 8+ mile free runs.  The race dogs are doing 5+ hour runs consistently now and come back fresh as daisies.  So, hitting the race trail soon shouldn't be to hard for them. 

Joe and Lisa have been working really hard and Joe is getting ready for his first 200-mile race this weekend.  However, he has the flu and we hope he feels better here in the next day or two. 

I will do my best to keep things updated during the race season here this next month.

Happy New Year to all!
