A Husky Wants to Pull!


Jan. 25, 2019.  I tested Roscoe’s Siberian Husky genes today through the use of a harness and 12-foot rope, for a cross-country ski on Huron Bay. A few inches of snow covered the ice, which is perfect for skiing…but without a trail to follow, it was not perfect for mushing!  He wasn’t sure which way to go and didn’t understand my directions.  I’m not sure I was giving them correctly anyway. When I found a snowmobile trail to follow across the ice, we went more smoothly.  Mush, Roscoe, mush! After a mile or so, he seemed to lose interest.  It may be in his genes, but he still needs training. And so do I. We’ll try again another day.
