Boogie came to us from Quinault Kennels, in MT Thank you Twila Baker for letting me have this wonderful boy. Boogie is my second mal, and opened me up to the world of conformation and the real working ethic of a malamute. He is a big headed sweet sweet boy with more than a drop of goof, and a non-stop working drive. Boogie's idea of a good day is to pull the sled for 20 miles, then curl up on the couch next to me. Food should be involved in there somewhere as well.
Boogie has his WTD many times over, his WPD and his WWPD (Working Weight Pull Dog). Though he would prefer to be on the trail, he puts up with the show ring occasionally, and is AKC pointed.
Boogie has been an amazing part of the team, teaching the younger dogs how to properly train in harness. He prefers not to lead and in fact is happiest in wheel where he can put his head down and work. But he will lead when asked and has been invaluable keeping the pups in line. I trust him to keep us all on trail, no matter what may cross our path.
