Musher Question & Answer

How many years have you been running dogs?
3

Tell us about your dogs?
I have two veteran dogs that have ran the Yukon Quest before the rest of the team will be two year olds.

How did you get started running dogs?
My husband brought home a few dogs and then all of a sudden we had a few more and then a few more and I loved being with the dogs so tried hooking up them up and loved it.

What do you love most about running sled dogs?
Enjoying all of their different personalities and seeing who likes to run where on the team. I also love to adventure with my team and see parts of the world that not too many people get to see.

Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
I think I will really enjoy the camping aspect of the Yukon Quest and the reality of travelling for miles and miles without seeing anyone else.

What music do you listen to on the trail?
A little bit of everything: country, pop and rock that I like to sing to.

How did your dogs get their names?/ How do you choose names?
We usually have a theme to our litters. The year I will have the Canadian NHL team (Canuck, Jet, Maple, Flame and Senator), the Hockey Stick litter (Easton, Bauer and Warrior) and the Greek Gods (Hera, Aphro and Zeus).
