Meet Tok…8.5 Year Old – Boy. Tok is one of the original 8 dogs that started the Nautique Sky Kennel. Tok was born in Kiruna, Sweden and lived on a kennel that was only 15 miles from the famous Ice Hotel. He has earned a solid spot on our team year after year. He is one of the most ornery and challenging dogs on the line as he likes to chew on the line while he’s stopped. He has a general craziness about him and that’s why we like him so much! He’s a smooth operator, however, being one of a few dogs on our team that rarely gets tired…he’s a finisher! When it’s time for a hook up, Tok is known for sitting patiently, tapping his right front foot, watching us hoping and waiting to be selected. Once he knows he is selected, brace yourself for impact! Tok is often placed in the wheel position, directly in front of the sled, because he’s really great at switching back and forth under the line predicting the turns. Tok was Gimli’s uncle and you can see many resemblances from Gimli with beautiful red fur and a bit of a crazy personality. Last year he completed the Solstice 50, Yukon Quest 300 and Percy DeWolfe 200. Tok’s son is Nemo.
