Unfortunately the loss of the three puppies is Nature's way of ensuring the survival of the fittest.
It is always hard to suffer the loss although we did everything possible to assist in their survival.
Flaire and her puppies are doing good and eating well. Mother and puppies are inside the chalet to monitor their development and keep them warm.
This week, we also got in three training runs with both teams (2 at 7.5 miles and one at 4.5 miles).
We have discovered that Venus runs much better at lead with Lilly.
Although Lilly is just a beginner at Lead, she is showing that she is a Natural Leader and enjoys the opportunity to be up front.
Libby had a short run at Lead with her sister Lilly and showed good portntial for becoming a Leader.
Part of mushing is learning to pair dogs that helps bring out their best. It is like fine tuning a race car!
The weather here has turned very cold last night with the night time low of -30 Celcius.
These low temperatures are to stay until next Wednesday.
Until next week........
