2013 was quite a year for us here at Keahi Siberians! We've had celebratory moments, moments of loss, and lots of change. Join us as we reflect upon an amazing year-
Team Keahi kicked off 2013 with the Priest Lake Sled Dog Race with a 4th place finish in the purebred 4-dog class. Not at all bad for our first running season! Our Team consisted of Mason and Denali in lead and Juneau and Dakota in wheel.
Denali and Dakota tried their paws at weight pulling this year. Though Denali was a bit slower to start, Dakota found he was a natural at it! Dakota ended the season placing in Silver for his class in the region! Very proud of our 'old' guy!
Weaver joined us from Tumnatki Siberians to expand our team and add depth to our training. We are so thrilled to add him to the team and to the family!
We said our goodbyes to a dear friend. We lost our Rockie boy to a surprise diagnosis of Cancer. He came into our lives as a rescue and enriched our lives to the end of his days.
Our first show dog, Denali, finished his AKC Championship. Handled by Soni Jager to his great success, we couldn't be more proud and more grateful to Soni for all her efforts bringing out the best in our boy.
We traveled to Michigan for the SHCA National Specialty where we met up with new and old friends. Diamond strutted her stuff in the Rescue Parade, Kenna, Enya, and Denali all hit the show ring, and Team Keahi hit the trails. A great week was had by all!
We returned home from Nationals and welcomed a new member to the family, Rogue. She will start her show and running career in 2014!
Team Keahi grew in numbers adding both Kenna and Enya to the team. Running our first 6 dog sprint and snagging a second place finish! Dakota earned his retirement after this race.
And then there were three...Tumnatki's Harvest Moon joined the family as we near the end of the year.
Team Keahi traveled to West Yellowstone to run the 4-dog class and participate in the Parade of Lights. A great way to end the year!
We end the year on a positive note with great dogs, great friends, and smiles on our faces for 2014. Thank you for joining us on our little journey, we look forward to sharing the next year with you!
Growing up in Montana my love of the Siberian Husky started at a young age. It has been quite a journey so far. There has been much to learn and still a lot more yet to learn! I truly believe that we are never too old, too experienced, or too full of ourselves to learn something new. I also believe that knowledge is useless unless we are willing to share it with others.
