Apache spent 10 years here with me and ran in many races and always performed great. At Fort Kent and Eagle Lake Races, he was the go to leader to get us out of town and pass all the crowds of cheering spectators.
He always enjoyed running loose and visiting all the females in the kennel after a training run.
He ran this season with the team and had a good time running with his team mates. He was basically retired at the end of December.
He will be sorely missed.
Butch, his nearest neighbour for 10 years, gave the most heart breaking howl as we buried Apache.
This is one of worst parts of mushing. It is never easy to say good bye to a companion.
Until next week.......
