I found a dog musher! A fellow Rotarian in Wasilla is a former musher. She offered to help me train Tok. In two weeks, I will meet with her and her husband (and their exchange student) for an afternoon chat about mushing, commands, life, and key tricks of the trade. To find a female, one from the east coast, who knows dogs, and is not judgemental is exactly what I need to train Tok.
As we talked about Tok, I showed her my album of his past 6 months with us: the 3 month old furball, the adolscent who I brought home to Kodiak, and our latest picstures of the 70 pound large-pawed ball fetcher.
The best part: her first mush dog was named, Tok. ::insert big cheesy grin::
