|These pictures and videos are from two training runs Levi, Weaver, Ceilidh and Jive went on with Scott and Corina Alexander's teams while we visited them over the weekend of Sept. 30th and Oct. 1st, 2006. There were two 12 dog teams. ALL are registered Siberian Huskies. On Saturday, Sept. 30th the dogs did a 4 mile run. On Sunday Oct. 1st the dogs did a 6 mile run in the rain. On Saturday I was on the "B" team ATV with Scott. On Sunday I was on the "A team ATV with Corina. It was absolutely amazing seeing these dogs work in harness.|

|Everyone including Corina's leader Valeska want to get going again. Ceilidh is flying high!|
|Levi HATES stopping and always starts screaming to get going again. Here Orion is giving him a dirty look - "you are hurting my ears!"|
|The "B" team on the move. Note the drive on the wheel dogs.
VIDEO: B Team on the move. They are pulling a 200 lb ATV with two people on it for a total of approx. 500 lbs.
|PASSING: The two teams took turns passing each other. Here the "A" team is passing the "B" team. Corina actually purposely had her "A" team running beside the "B" team for a while before she told the "A" team to "pick it up" and go "on by" pass the "B" team.|
|The girls, Ceilidh front / Jive in back, on the move while passing the B team.|
The "A" team was pulling a 650 lbs ATV with two people on it for a total of almost 1000 lbs.! Sometimes the ATV was running in 4th gear, sometimes the engine was off and the dogs were pulling the ATV while in neutral.
|The "B" team included 8 1/2 year old Levi and his new buddy 8 year old Orion (red boy). This 12 dog team were pulling a lighter 200 lb ATV with two people so a total of approx. 500 lbs, however this ATV did not have a motor so the dogs were pulling the total weight the whole time.|
