Yes, it is Saturday and The Herd is ready for a weekend of the outdoors. The weather here is a little iffy with rain, but much warmer temperatures, so we will be outside virtually the whole time. We can smell spring approaching!
For those of you who are not on The Thundering Herd Fan Page on Facebook (because, amazingly, you apparently do not need to have up to the minute news on The Herd), you may have missed a great news article about the Iditarod that we linked to. We will quote a section:
Karen Ramstead’s . . . Siberian Huskies are some of the most beautiful dogs at McGrath and anywhere along the Iditarod Trail. As villagers stopped by the checkpoint, they all gravitated toward her team to admire her handsome team. Handsome is as handsome does is a proverb meaning character and behavior are more important than appearance. It seems though with Karen’s dogs, they have it all – good looks, strong character and stellar behavior.
What a spectacular tribute to a very special lady. Karen and and the Siberian Huskies of North Wapiti, we are very sorry that you had to make the decision to drop out of the Iditarod. But, as always, we salute the tremendous effort and look forward to seeing you and the Pretty Sled Dogs again. You are one heck of an inspiration!
