TBT: Quito Earns MVD!

Right now, Quito is busy with Mommy duties but let's take a trip back to March 2012 to another significant moment in her life. Aliy and the Red Team finished 2nd in the Iditarod and Quito earned the title of Most Valuable Dog for the season! At the finishers' banquet Aliy had promised Quito roses so once they got back to the kennel they had a small ceremony to present her with the honour.

Lovely!!!

And what did she do after these roses? Not much - only do it all over again twice as runner-up at Iditarod and have two more litters of future champions!!!

Thanks so much for this "throw back" story!!!

Best,

Margaret

She is such an awesome, amazing, incredible dog!! And I forgot to mention photogenic and sweet in a slightly aloof way, dignified! At least that was how I felt when I met her. Her progeny will carry forth her greatness I am sure.
Thanks for he memories!
