Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd share a few pictures of my team last year on a 5 month expedition in Alaska.

Welcome to the board!  What beautiful dogs!  I am Ronda and I am owned by Badger the Rotty, and Goshawk, the Bullmastiff puppy.  We LOVE pics!

Thanks Ronda, nice looking dogs, I am owned by 25 of these guys, could tell you all the names but it'd take up some space, big family anyway. Here's another picture from last spring.

Absolutely beautiful! I would love to take my girls to Alaska and learn how to pull, unfortunately since I have had them we have had no snow and have driven to take them to hike in it.

Those are nice looking girls you have there, I have a few ones I'll send some pictures of them next,

Yes, I live in alaska for the past 20 some years, been doing these expeditions with my mals in the arctic for about the same amount of time. Mals are just great for these trips. Think of'em as a big family of kids.

Those are some wonderful pictures.  I would love to hear more about your adventures on your 5 month expedition and to hear more about your dogs.  Welcome to the place.  I'm Kat and I have Kaila and Cinder and Shiner.  The girls are Belgian Malinois and Shiner is a Malinois x Ridgeback pup.

I would like to individual pictures with names and ages.  That way I feel more part of the family.  Who's with me?

Hello everyone, thanks for your responses, and great pictures of your "familys". Here's another spring time picture of mine from the expedition. I'll start putting the individual dogs in paw print profiles soon.
 
We'll be heading out again in November 1st for another 5-6 month trip in the Refuge, so been busy preparing for that. Hopefully I'll be connected to the outside world this time and send photos via satalite to big paws. Thanks again, good to be back but anxious to go again.

Beautiful dogs, my favorite breed.
Tell us more about your trips! It's really interesting.
