Thanks for stopping by Kathy!

I was pleased to see the dogs with tails up, tongues lolling!

It's pretty warm here as dog races go, quite unusual.

I hope this becomes an annual event.

Great action capture, Katy! The dogs sure enjoy what they do, don't they?!! We have the John Beargrease down here in Duluth every winter and it's always fun to go freeze your bum off watching them come through the checkpoints! :D
