I don't run sled dogs any more (still have my sled, just in case!) but I still crave that wonderful sound of the panting dogs, the jingling collars, and the runners on the sled.... It's all you hear amid the otherwise silence of a wintery wonderland. Pair that with a snug cabin to spend the night: Perfection. These two ladies, Luna and Opal, ran lead for me. Opal (the black one) was my amazing rescued lead dog. She taught all the other rescues what to do. Luna, next to her, was a foster I had and in this photo, she was a leader-in-training. She later went on to a great home as a leader herself for a musher who was just starting out!
