Yea, every once in awhile he would stop and come bouncing back to me with this big grin on his face. Not super efficient, but definitely fun.

And then when we came around the last turn to the finish, the person with the microphone said something like "Hey, let's have some applause for Squash... it looks like Squash is spending a lot of time saying 'hi' to the spectators..." lololderp.

LOL!
I heard them say his name, but it was loud with all the dogs at the end and I couldn't really hear what they were saying :P

If Siri doesn't hate the cold I would love to try this next year. Not skijoring really, more like my cross country skiing and Siri running ahead. But seriously, if those tiny toy poodles could do it!! Did you see the beagle?! If a BEAGLE can do it then I feel like a jack could!

Yea I saw the pair of toy poodles, and I saw the beagle. Unless you're serious about racing, they don't HAVE to pull you - just like to run!

Even the dude's dog who was just SMOKING the 7K race was tired and more running along beside him by the time he finished his second lap (he finished his second lap before we even started!!!)

Unfortunately, because I had to mount it a little lower than is ideal because of the bib, unbeknownst to me my camera chose to focus on my skijor belt bungees. So most of my first-person perspective video is pretty unusable but I did want to post this short segment with our finish... what the lady actually said was "Squash is very busy saying hello to everyone!" lol




One of the things I love so much about this dog is he's so go-with-the-flow. When we first arrived at the festival, he needed some time to sit down, soak all the new things in, and have a think about it all. But then once he did that, he was totally chill all day long. Even with all the crowds and noise, he was just hamming it up and having fun.

That looks like such a blast. There is a cross country track here that I would love to try with Teagan. I might have to make a new track though so I don't wreck theirs lol

Be very careful where you go! Generally skijoring on groomed cross country ski trails isn't allowed and you need to use areas designated for skijoring or multi-use (like winter walking/hiking trails or sometimes snowmobile trails). The dogs' feet mess up the groomed tracks for the cross country skiers, otherwise.

Whoever the guy was that finished first (no clue what distance race he was in though) came flying across the finish with his dog still pulling, but the dog pretty much threw himself onto the ground once the owner got him stopped and just laid there eating snow

We didn't stay for the awards so I don't know if you and I are talking about the same guy, but holy cow the really serious skijorers were going SO FAST, it was just amazing. The one I thought was leading (and waaaaay ahead of everyone else at the time) was getting off the lake after his second lap before the next class even started. Whether it was him I saw with the dog next to him or not, the amount of conditioning those dogs have is just incredible.
