Today was the annual Two Rivers Valley Funale and we took a bunch of dogs down to compete in the kids one and two-dog races. After the Easter Egg hunt we experienced a short but heavy snow shower that was enough to get everyone wet and put a layer of white on the ground for a while but not much else. The community catered a delicious pot luck luncheon then the kids races kicked off.
All the kids displayed great skill, particularly round the corners, and some had no fear going super fast with enthusiastic dogs.
Timber (below left) was first up in the one-dog class with Scruggs and he did super well to come in third. He didn't stop smiling the whole way through. Good job buddy!
Jacob (below right) had Kodiak and Junior and they went FAST FAST FAST. Jacob did well to recover from a couple of tumbles and finished with a smile on his face which is most important. Well done Jacob!
Sammy (below left) was next with Spark and Junior. He hung on even when he lost his footing and dragged himself back up onto the sled to finish right way up. Nice work Sam!
Woody and Kodiak took Noah (below right), Sammy's neighbour, around the course and she showed us her excellent sled riding skills around the bends!
The prize giving was good fun with Aliy and Allen on deck to give out prizes. Everyone was awarded something, from the red lantern to the place-getters. Aliy even performed special medal ceremony songs for medal winners.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to help. It looked like much fun as had by all.
