Meet Ruby…5 Year Old – Girl. Ruby came to us in the summer of 2015. Her father Reef is a two-time golden harness winner (voted most outstanding lead dog of Iditarod) and she’s also our smallest dog at around only 35 pounds. She’s as sweet as they come when she’s not mushing and absolutely balls to the walls crazy when we are mushing. Even though she’s tiny, tiny, tiny, she’s quite a handful on the line with an unbelievable drive to pull. Relax Ruby!!! Last year Ruby completed the Yukon Quest 300 and was our spark plug and motivator the entire race. Unfortunately, Ruby somehow tore her ACL in the spring of 2018 and required extensive surgery for her to be a “normal” dog again. This type of surgery is career-ending for a sled dog, but she’s really enjoying being a house dog and perhaps will be a mother again someday! In 2016, Ruby proved to be the most wonderful mother and gave birth to our “Disney” litter; Pocahontas (Pokey), Ariel, Jasmine, Belle and Simba. (PS…In Simba’s case, how does a 35 pound Ruby create a 65 pound Simba?) 🙂
