This is a collection of photos from the 2011-2012 season at Team Ineka and Broken Runner Kennel in Willow, Alaska
Our newest addition to Team Ineka is Bodhi. Just a year old this past January I wanted to wait until he was over a year old before we put him in a big team for a training run.
Today we ran Bodhi in a ten dog team around Windy Lake. Not too far but he did great! I had him hooked up to Rabbit an older (11) veteran that could teach him a thing or two and check him if he got outta hand.
My wife left this little poem for me one morning on the bathroom mirror. I am so grateful to have a wonderful gal like that in my corner. Thanks sweetie.
Man who loves the snow
Ultimate sensitivity to the world around him
Shear desire to be the best he can be
Heart as big as the tundra, just a lot warmer
Endurance, energy, excitement
Races to win, and races to be the best

Oh Dog! I am SO excited! Today I’m talking with Robert Forto of Dog Works Training Centers about his sled dog teams.
Why am I so excited? Well, as you know, I am a Malamute, and Malamutes were bred as Arctic work dogs, just as theSiberian Huskys that Robert works with. Read more…
