Goodbye to an Old Friend

Colby was one of the greats. He traveled 4 John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathons with me and countless training and camping miles. He was even featured on the front of the Beargrease poster heading out on the trail with all the relish and enthusiasm he possessed.

Colby came to us later in life. He was 4 years old and was he ever ready to go. He was not the snuggly type, but one to become more interested as the job got harder and the challenge greater. He died last weekend and will be missed by all.

And perhaps his greatest legacy is siring the best litter of pups we have ever had, who this year will be tackling the 375 mile Beargrease Sled dog race in his honor.
