Julie and Caroline raced in the Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race this year and I was the official dog petter/photographer of the Buckles/Ray team (read all about it here). Talk about an expressive bunch of dogs— it was a brilliant way to spend a few hours on a beautiful winter afternoon.

This guy was resting up before the race— talk about calm, cool and collected.

Bisoux was the picture of composure (until she got her harness on).

I wish I knew this guy’s name— he stole my heart.

Bisoux is one loving girl with a serious side of bad ass— don’t cross her.

Juliette, the one eyed, geriatric husky, kept up with the young-uns with a smile on her face— pure Husky bliss.

What a beautiful collection of sled dog faces! I took a few short video clips, too….their singing and bouncing for joy are an expression of their passions…..lovely! I watched Caroline at the start on Sat. I say, “good eye, good eye”!

It’s so much fun to be around all that joyous canine energy (plus, Bayfield is beautiful in the winter)!
