It was a beautiful sunny March day, and the puppies got to experience different trail conditions and obstacles such as glare ice, skiers, and loose dogs, they handled every challenge with ease like they'd been doing this kind of thing their whole life. The glare ice didn't even faze them. Matrix one of the 9.5 month old pups even got to try her paw at lead for a few miles towards the end of the run. I put her upfront next to her Mother Adidas in the chase (or second) team. She did really well, so well in fact that I forgot she was upfront at one point. I am looking forward to watching her mature and grow into the fantastic sled dog I know she is going to be.
