So Excited

Finally, my first Winterfest at Perrot State Park this past weekend. The weather was pleasant and there was snow. For the past two years the event sponsored by the Friends of Perrot has been canceled due to either a lack of snow or dangerously cold polar vortexes.

We enjoyed a horse drawn wagon ride through the campground road and watched the dog sled race through the prairie  path.

The dogs were just so excited to get going. They barked, howled and leap into the air ready to get going. Once the order was given they were all business. Very impressive to see.


For those of you who want to know more about dog sledding catch the Iditarod, starting on March 7th in Alaska. This 1000 mile race is sure to be spectacular. Note poodles need not apply,  they have been included in the race but are now banned.

For those of you who want to see other champions of the canine world you can watch the Westminster Show Feb. 16-17, one of the longest running sporting events in Madison Square Gardens, New York city.


  1. Rats, I would have enjoyed see this.


  2. Dog gone it, I posted it on facebook but not on the blog.

  3. We were able to ride a dog sled in Alaska during the summer season where they put wheels on the sleds for training. Their desire to get out there and run is something to experience.
