Baxter is by far the happiest member of our pack. Baxter wags and wags and wags. We take this to be a statement on the great life she has and the excellent stock from which she comes.

When Baxter started running with our team, she demonstrated lead-dog know-how right away. She had her first sledding experience at the age of one. She ran on a six dog team in swing (just behind lead). She ran a four mile loop and pulled the whole way! Just like her mom, Lucille, Baxter's wiggly while she's waiting to go but there's no stopping her once she's started.

She began sledding in earnest in 1999 when she joined us for a sledding vacation and had to work on a two dog team. She was up to the challenge and lunged into her harness with an eagerness to pull. She had a blast and gave Pen several fast runs. She has been running in lead ever since and constantly shows her desire to work.  Baxter ran in her first sanctioned race on her second birthday. She ran on a two dog bikejor team. She pulled like a champ and the team won the race. We're so proud of her.
