Hovland, MN

I started mushing very late in life! I’m 46 and this will be the second Beargrease 40 we are running. I felt like somebody in the Beargrease family should be mushing dogs, and I’m the crazy one who decided to go ahead try it out. I absolutely love it! I’m very thankful to DoodleDog Kennel for taking me under their wing and letting their dogs train me! When we are out in the woods, surrounded by stars, sometimes with the northern lights, I can feel my ancestors looking down on me and keeping me safe.

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

I was 44 when I started running sled dogs. I was inspired by my family heritage, being the great great granddaughter of John Beargrease. 

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!
