The Five Yearlings in Harness

The 5 "Five" yearlings are a fantastic group of dogs. They are excited, yet dedicated. They truly are the perfect combination of their resolute Mother, Chica, and their energetic and always hungry, Dad, Clyde. Only Scooby looks like his Mom. The other four youngsters are blonde variations of their Dad.

Here is a quick video of the FIVE during a short break on a training run in mid September.

Enjoy the youth and enthusiasm!

I love that sight of the dirty faced Rodney!! I can see they have a lot of power in those young legs of theirs! It's going to be fun watching them learn how to race this year!

Awww so cite! They sure do look eager, maybe a little confused yet but they'll get lined out quickly. So good to see them all up an raring to go!! Just an awesome bunch of pups as I am sure the new six are going to be too!

I love Rodney's dirty face...and Ginger's barky-ness. Just dogs being dogs getting dirty, barking and enjoying their run. Look forward to seeing more of them.

Wouldn't it be great to bottle all that energy and enthusiasm.
Go Ginger, Five, Rodney, Ernie, and Scooby. Keep learning and having fun.

Fantastic!

Watching this video, it is difficult to imagine the battle they were in just 14 months prior. A fight well fought...
the reward...
pulling, in a team, in the snow, living the Husky dream.
:-)

It looks like the five miracle pups will be pushing their Momma Chica and adding a spark to Papa Clyde very soon.

Hi Aily/ Allen,

Do you guys not use neck lines? What do you think the advantages and disadvantage of this might be? Is there times when you would use neck lines and if so why? Just thought it might be interesting for people to know but you can tell me at the weekend.

Kind Regards,

Craig
