A different lifetime, on a different planet, in a different universe. Priest Lake Pacific Coast Championships. Winter 1978. 3-dog class. Belaya Buccaneer at lead. Abakan Maggie Whitehair at wheel. Abakan Rosalinda de Llana at wheel hidden behind Buck. Dogs descended from this team have received the Samoyed Club of America Top Sled Dog award, have completed the Femundlopet(in Norway), and descendants of the Norwegian dog have completed the Alaska Serum Run. Descendants are currently running on sled teams in Germany, the Netherlands, in Alaska, and in Washington state as well as training with me in SE Colorado. ABAKAN celebrates 50 years in June of 2021.

Sometimes…there is just nothing better than a ball to play with.
