T Shirts

This is the month when we especially reflect on what makes us thankful. And we all are thankful for loyal friends. You can help our homeless four legged friends by purchasing a T-shirt created for IdidARace. We still have some left in M, L, XL, and 2XL. One can be purchased for $15. If you purchase more than one we’ll reduce the price to $12/shirt. So help a homeless dog and consider buying shirts for holiday presents!

Race Update

It’s snowing like crazy in Park City right now. We have to meet with the city tomorrow morning to see what the trail conditions will be like for Saturday. Last year a bunch of sled races got canceled for lack of snow. I guess it would be a good thing if the IDidARace got canceled because of too much snow. If you are traveling from out of state you may want to hold off or email If we get bad news tomorrow we will attempt to find an alternate venue but at such short notice it may be impossible.

Interactive Dog Toys

Interactive toys are great, and Nina Ottosson are the best!

Very Fun

Dogs are not only positively rewarded for playing with the toy, but it is entertaining for them and exercises their mental abilities as well.

Just make sure that your Siberian Husky does not mentally exercise her choice to decimate the top of the toy so that all of the food can be poured out at once 🙁

Utah Paw Power Club Meeting

There are a lot of people who have contacted me about mushing events and info in Utah. I think it is time to make UPP (Utah Paw Power) more of an official club so that we have the resources to promote more Utah mushing. We will set the meeting for March 24th (Saturday). We will determine time and location based on number of people who are interested in participating. The purpose of the meeting will be to unite people who are interested in actively participating in promoting more mushing (dry land, sled races, skijoring, weight pulling etc) events. Please email me if you are interested in attending
