Spark Update

There's been a number of you asking after Spark - the only one of the yearling squad who hasn't got to race so far this season.

Spark is just fine!! Just before the first race he tripped and hurt his wrist a little so it was decided not to race him.

Up until that point, and now that he is recovered, he is one of the strongest in the yearling class.

Catch up with him in this quick video. Note: Chena and Violet had a LOT to say while Aliy was speaking so you may have some trouble hearing…



Spencer's team in this video was Spark and Chena in lead, Lydia and Champ in swing, Cayenne and Pepe, Coal and Daisy with Amber and Wedgy in wheel.

Thanks for the update on spark. He looks & acts like he is fully recovered. Go Spark. Did you get more snow? We even had 6 inches here in the New Mexico desert.

Everyone wants to go!
Spark looks fantastic.
What a strong energetic young team, with so many cheer leaders.
Even Spencer and Aliy look recovered from the CB300.
Looking good :-)

I love all the dogs in the background and seeing who lives where in the dog yard. SPK could post a diagram of all the 'housing assignments'.It was great to see Nelson as the team was leaving. Hi Nelson!

Enthusiasm in 3D! I'm especially interested in the fire litter since I only started following with the 2013 Iditarod. Way to go pups!!

Mr. Spark is such a sweetie and...a fire plug once in harness and ready to go!!! You named that litter very appropriately. They are 'dynamite'. So healthy and happy and energetic! Stars in their own 'young' right!!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸ”₯❤️πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’–

Thanks for the Spark update....I always feel bad for the dogs who have the word "None" in their race history! You go Spark....glad you are now 100% now!

Watching the youthful enthusiasm of that team (all youngsters) gave me a nice chuckle .. Spencer is brave hearted to take that crew out!
