He double checked his list...
and, like any good handler would,
Gene triple checked his list!
Then with a chuckle & a hug...
& his biggest fan (Adelheid) there to send him off...
the final count down was heard &
Martin was mushing down the trail of the
Yukon Quest 300
Together, 12 beautiful dogs

The vet (Helen) is going over the dog's general physical condition
while I take down the information on a check sheet...
Tony is handling the dog for us!
There is Colleen in the back ground in blue!
& it's my turn to snuggle with this beautiful girl :)
I can't remember what we were laughing at her but
we were totally bonding with Colleen's dogs!
Good thing I didn't have any room in the truck...
I could have easily taken this one home!
Not only did I get to spend the day with
TONS of beautiful furry four legged people
and learn TONS of great things from the different vets that I got tow work with,
the girls got to visit with their faceless Auntie Laura!!
(ONE of these days I'll get her with my camera,when she least expects it!!)
Apparently Sarah was paying attention to the Vets & Mummy because...
On the way home...we stopped at Auntie Stacie's where

I just LOVE her positive attitude...
Finally, Grandee's rocking chair has been conquered!!
Heck, this little tike even applauds herself for her accomplishments :)
"Oh Daddy, look what I just did!" giggle,
(I usually get the "I just fell on my noggin" cry or the
"Mummy, my sister just took my toy" scream!)
"Humm....I think I'll savour the moment
Not that THAT moment could last for very long around THIS cabin!!
Oh well, things are ALWAYS better in TWO's :)
There is a school teacher that lives in Nunavut, Arctic Bay, & he has a Blog called Way Way Up...I've enjoyed a number of his entries. He is about to interview an elder as part of his professional development time with the high school & will be writing his stories on his blog!!! I thought you might like to read them too!
Or, simply click on this link above & then add it to you favourites!
Hope you've all had a good start to your day! The girls have slept in again & are now playing quietly in their crib! I think It's time to get them up though...
It's about -35 out and is as clear as a bell! Thank goodness the sun is shining again :) It feels amazing on my face as it pours through the windows of the cabin !!

This was a blast! And being the honey Sean is,
he pushed the girls back up the hill for me!!
Did I pick a great guy, or what?
Adelaide took a face dive right into a massive pile of fresh snow!
Well, that's it...Our kick sledding day was a total success!!
Hay, by the way, did you notice just how much the girls have grown? It must be all of that clean Yukon air:)
