Race Report From the Princester:)

Haroo everypupper, it's me Prince....come on you must remember me - it hasn't been that long!!!

Here's me real tired after my big adventure


I had a HUGE week last week. Left on Thursday morning to go racing at Hamner. There was me and six of my fur buddies in the Iceberg trailer with two bipeds driving the Jeep. We went as far as Christchurch (about seven-eight hours towing a trailer) on Thursday and stayed at the bipeds relatives place. On Friday we headed to our final destination which was a much shorter trip than the day before. We got to go for a short run to stop us from getting bored.


On Saturday my friends Que (well he and I actually aren't that fond of each other), Pharaoh and Laska ran an 8km freight class. They had to pull about 70kg's plus a biped......I felt real sorry for them. The good news is that they won the three dog class!!! Go Team Iceberg!!!

On Sunday it was our turn - Fen, Kreevanka, Quiquern and myself ran in the 14km sprint class. It was a long long way for us as we normally run shorter races but we had lots of fun on the way. We had two long hills and two river crossings on the way and Fen managed to get lose when the biped was changing us over - I was sooo jealous that it wasn't me as he got to run in front of another team for a bit. The biped let us pull the rig weithout him in it for a bit while he caught up with Fen and stopped us and hooked him onto the gangline. We were real proud of ourselves for finishing the race - we got second:)

After the prize giving we headed home...boy was it a long drive. Most of us slept in the trailer as we were all tired. We didn't get home until just before Monday morning. Mom and Sum were real pleased to see me...I got pretty excited and bounced around too:) Sum gave me a good telling off for going away and leaving her, I knew she'd be okay with Mom looking after her and Kavic keeping her company though - otherwise I wouldn't have left her.


Here's us staked out at the place we stayed at

We sure were hungry!

So that was my few days away without my big sis and Mom.

Here's me recouperating with my sore foot.....
am I getting sympathy from all you cute girls out there?

Prince, your foot looks very sore. Should I come over to urge your human to spoil you?

Oh, wow! That looks like SO much fun, Prince!!! I wish I could have run, run, run with you! I love to run! I've never pulled a sled or run in harness, but I'm the most athletic of our pack and am very strong! And I love to run!
What are your temperatures like these days?
I'm so sorry you have an owie on your paw. You do look so very handsome and sad. I would lick your muzzle to try to make you feel better!!!
Love,
Amber

Amber - Come visit me & you can be my running partner!!! The weather here had warmed up but it froze again last night so it's nice & cold:) Please come over as soon as you can so my owie gets better. Would feel so much better if I had some kisses from you:)

All that racing fun is probably worth a sore paw. All the same I hope your mom dotes on you a while.
