The runaway team.  
A quarter mile past this photo the three of them made their escape and ran 2.5 miles before they were
caught.  Thankfully some nice snowmobilers gave us rides to try and find them.  They managed to keep the
sled upright for the whole time as well as stay on the trail.  Ike is in lead, wheel dogs are Vinnie and Lucy.  
Due to attitude problems with the older boys, Lucy lead the team back the last mile in single lead. She will
eventually follow in her mother's, brothers', and grand father's footsteps and be trained to run lead.  1/17/09
Lucy and sister Avalanche reunited!  Each
sporting their new harnesses (Lucy in purple) took
turns chewing on each other between strides.  This
was Avalanche's first time in front of a sled!  See
more pics on
Avalanche's page. 1/18/09
Her first time out since January:  Figured what the
heck, we'll enter the Malamute Specialty in July.

In her Sweeps class she was 4th of 8
In her regular class, she was 2nd of 7
The next day she was 2nd again.
Not bad for being out of coat and being a little

Lucy has had a truly amazing weight pull career despite taking time out for
litters.  She retired in March of 2018 having been a top puller throughout her
career.  Included in her accomplishments:

61-80# class winner at both the Alaskan Malamute Club of America Regional
and National weight pulls in the same week...twice (2012, 2017)

Multiple top weight pulled
Multiple top percentage pulled
AMALAPAC record holder at 4,000#
Multiple Top 4 placements for the AMCW season

We're sorry to see her retire but in her final season she went big, pulling
3,170# and consistently placing in the top 3 of her weight class.  She often
pulled more weight than the dogs in the 81-100# and 101-120# classes.  
Running with her daughter Nellie in FRIGID temps.

2018 Alaskan Malamute Club of America Regional and National Specialty week in Orlando, FL

Lucy had a pretty great week.
AMCA Regional Weight Pull 61-80# class:  2nd Place
AMCA National Rally Trial:  1st Place in both Excellent B and Advanced B
National High Combined Score in Advanced B and Excellent B
AMCA National Weight Pull 61-80# class WINNER.

At 10.5 years of age, while she looked good, I wasn't sure how she'd do in weight pull.  She'd been off since late winter when she
officially retired and here it was October.  I'm so blessed to be able to be able to ask her "you want to go win this?" and have her do just
that.  She really gave it her all.  We cannot ask for anything more.  Bald or not, this one was a National to remember.
