My wife Robin and I are veterinarians. We have operated Vermilion Veterinary Clinic near Cook, Minnesota since 1985. We have a mixed animal practice, working with a wide variety of animals. We currently practice with another veterinarian, Dr. Jack Anderson. We love the outdoors and wilderness. We enjoy camping, canoeing, fishing and hunting. We started in sled dogs in 1985. Ever since we’ve had dogs and have used them for exploring the wilderness, camping and racing. We’ve raced dogs in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Ontario, Saskatchewan, the Yukon and Alaska. We have two grown children, Ann and Kirk who also love outdoor activities.

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

Read “Call of the Wild” when I was about 10. That was my inspiration. Got my first sled dogs at 28.

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!
