Musher Question & Answer

How many years have you been running dogs?

Tell us about your dogs?
My Jeep litter continues to impress me every time I run them. Last year on the Quest trail, Comanche amazed me! She was very ill years ago and lost an eye from a horrible fungal infection she picked up travelling across the country. Since her recovery, she has become one of the finest and happiest lead dogs I have ever run. Watching her lead the team over Eagle Summit in the storm and come into Mile 101 like it was nothing, was inspirational!

How did you get started running dogs?
Guiding sled dog trips where I grew up in New Hampshire.

What do you love most about running sled dogs?
My favourite parts of dog mushing are watching the dogs mature and develop over the years and the bond we make from travelling through amazing country!

Are you a member of any other organizations involved in sled dog sports?
Two Rivers Dog Mushing Association

Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Groundhog day! Our goal is to improve from last year and finish with happy, wagging tails!

What music do you listen to on the trail?
Dog paws on the trail!

How did your dogs get their names?/ How do you choose names?
Theme litters. The core of my team are named after Jeeps.
