Default First Skijor Race!

Today was the City of Lakes Loppet skijor race.
NOT ONLY did I get to meet our esteemed PWCorgi, who was one of a squadron of volunteers who rushed to meet my every need after we crossed the finish line, but we had a BLAST!

My only goals were to finish and not be a part of any dog fights. DONE AND DONE.

Waiting while the other classes were lining up in the starting area. As the most novice class, we started last. One of my concerns was that he would be stressed by the unfamiliar ruckus. Clearly... he was not lol.

Getting ready to line up for our class.

Lined up and waiting for our start!

Aaaand we're off!

Cheerfulest butt.

This was almost a disaster, and as close as we came to being involved in any altercations. The lady attached to that dog fell down and halted his progress, and after pausing every so briefly Squash went ON BY like a champ. I was incredibly proud of him.

The view of the trail across the lake from the start... he looks dang good here but I admit that he wasn't always so nicely out in front or focused.

Then we got too far for even grainy photos, and my husband/photographer met us up at the final stretch.

I really, really love this picture. Because we're not perfect here... he's a bit winged off to the side and he's not very focused on pulling, but he's looking back at me and he looks so happy, and it just encapsulates how much fun we had together today.

We got a medal! Ok, everyone got a medal for finishing, but still... FINISHING WAS ONE OF OUR GOALS!

Thanks for looking!

Yay Squash!

I loved how right before he crossed the finish line he jumped up at you like HEY! THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!!

He may not have been the most focused dog all day, but he certainly seemed like he was having a heck of a lot of fun
