My main passion is sled dogs and my 2 Welsh Corgis. My husband and I recently relocated to an off grid house in order to have our dogs at home with us for the first time. I have 2 grown sons who can occasionally be persuaded to help out with this crazy lifestyle. When I am not doing dog stuff I like to hike, camp and fish.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START RUNNING SLED DOGS AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED?

I was a young kid when Libby Riddles and Susan Butcher ran the Iditarod. The news stories about those women introduced me to the sport. I was 41 when I started running sled dogs.

The “goodest” dogs
Need your help

What a sled dog looks forward to most after a long day of racing is a nice bed of straw! But guess what happened at last year’s race? Someone stole all our straw right before the race start! Thankfully, great fans like you helped us out during the final hour to provide this vital supply for our amazing dogs.

These dogs simply are the best – and we want to be able to continue treating them that way! Donations from fans like you make that possible. Would you find it in your heart to help us out? No amount is too small in sled dog world!
