Well, there isn't to much going on. Kind of boring since my last post. We have been getting snow off and on, today it is snowing lightly but, coming down fast which means more shoveling or maybe not. I think I will revert back to BUSH PLOWING, that's when you put on your snowshoes and tamp the snow down, a whole lot easier than shoveling. It actually levels out the driveway also. Right now, there is a big hump right down the middle. Wednesday I went to Wasilla and picked up plastic for a vapor barrier on my ceiling, finally. I got a request to see my sled dogs, I really don't have them yet, I am waiting until Spring to build kennels for them, I really don't like to chain my dogs. I did get a dog from a neighbor who didn't take care of him very well and his name is "Max".
"Max" isn't a sled dog but, thought he may have potential so, I decided to take him and see if I could train him. He is a good dog except, he is an escape artist and he barks and howls constantly which is the fault of the previous owner by not giving him personal contact.
This and escaping is what he does best. He is 2 years old.
I took him to a friend of mine who was going to keep him for 2 weeks and run him with his dogs, the first day, he ran "Max" for 3 hours and he did fair. When they stopped for a break, "Max" started a fight with the dog next to him and when they got back to the yard, "Max" started postering the other dogs trying to become the Alfa dog. That don't work. Anyway, my friend brought him back and said he is to agressive with other dogs. I really liked "Max" but, I ended up giving him to another friend who has nobody and has 100 acres of land for "Max" to roam to his hearts content. I sure wished he worked out. I will stick to my original plan and pick up sled dogs already trained in running. Other than that, not much else going on. Next week, I should have something more interesting.
