First: Angel had here puppies on the 20th of December. Angel had two puppies Yaluk & Tepeu. The names are of Mayan Deities to acknowledge the end of the Mayan Calender on the 21st of December. Yaluk was the Lightning God & Tepeu was the Sky God. The photos are of Angel & her puppies at two days of age. Both mother & her brood are doing fine!
Second: We had a major snow fall here this week & in two days we received 4 feet of snow. The shear volume of snow over such a short period of time basically shut down mushing activities & vehicular travel. Most of the later part of the week was spent on snow removal & digging out the dog yard.
The roof of the chalet had to have the snow removed to prevent the possibility of collapse due the volume & weight of the snow. The last time we witnessed such volume of snow in this short of a period of time was 2007 & that snow storm was in March!
However, we were able to get in 4 days of running the dogs. Their performance was great & it seems the the teams are coming together. The dogs are all in good shape & excited to run.
Hope to get the snow removed from the road today so we can get out of here for supplies.
I would also like to thank Franziska Berchtold for her continuous support of the dogs here at Miortuk. It is greatly appreciated by both the dogs & me!
