Dog Positions: 10 dog team. Bird-Shifter, Snap-Sparrow, Zambonie-Eddy, Jane-Scoter, Shirkle-Widegon

Notes: God run. Went out with Paul with him on the snow machine. We left from the Willow Community Center and ran over Long Lake and Crystal lake to the “Big Swamp” trail and down to the “Old Hunters Trail.” We stopped every hour or so and snacked the dogs and gave them a “good dog.”
We are trying to get over a mental plateau that the dogs are experiencing. We hope to do that this week so we can race in the Don Bowers race this weekend.
