Sledding  


Who would have thought that Irish Setters could be competitive sled dogs? Their love of running and willingness to please turned out to be a winning combination. Our travels took us to many competitions within Manitoba and Minnesota. One highlight was Gary winning the Mayor's trophy in Ely, Minnesota for a track record set in the 3 dog race, running a team of 2 Irish Setters! This hobby eventually turned into a family affair, as children arrived on the scene. This gives a new meaning to the term "versatility dog".
