Thursday Thrills: HIKE!

The man shouted HIKE...
And here I thought that was what we were doing!

But this "Hike!" is a really fun one! It's one command huskies willingly obey, cause it means we get to trot our feety-feets and run run run! For a few minutes, I got to do what efurry husky dreams of, what we were born to do .... I got to be a sled dog,
"Jack, Sled-Dog of the North"!
Me and my best buddy, Moon, we were two wild & crazy sled dog guys, having a blast!

We thanked the nice people for letting us be sled dogs, boy, I sure envy you real sled dogs. Maybe someday I'll get to be a sled dog again!

The pups after us were fun to watch, too. Doesn't their team looked a little funny? That's cause they were a Sheltie and a 6-month old Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. And oh my dog, she was cute!


She gave it her best, just loping along...


Before they tried it, Moon gave her some encouragement.




She was such a cutie!


We had a great time! Here's one more spectacular look at sled dogs Moon & me (and Michael, one of Moon's 3 boys):



Jack, Sled Dog of the North, signing off!

PS - Miss Fluffy Tail herself has some great videos & pics of the hike events on her blog today too - be sure to stop by & have more fun! She even has one of us being sled dogs, and Moon doing the weight pull, a-roos!!!

What a great video - your Mom does such a great job with her editing. That is a dream of Phantom's too. Mom would so love to have a sled here.

Woos, the OP Pack

Great job reporting. My very missed Titan-Siberian Husky loved to run. We often took him to Mt. Charleston in the winter-snow. He loved it.

Wow! Jack - you look soooo strong and handsome in harness! I would love to try that.
Love,

WOOOO Jack,

Isn't being a sled dog fun!? Mom doesn't usually have to even give us a command to start. She just hasta hang on!

My Mom was "awwwwww"-ing over that little Bernese dogger. She loves them dogs!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Holy dawg sled Batman! That looks like fun (well, it wouldn't be for me but for you definitely). I think my part-Husky brother Ziggy would love that!

Isn't being a sled dog great? Hope woo get to do it again.

Salute Sled Dogs. We think you two look awesome on the line. Your mom will be getting a Diggler any day now.

I'm totally jealous now! I love bike rides, but I'm sure pulling a real sled would be so much better. If only I had been your pulling partner.
