Who to look for on Baffin Island

Jake is my "muscle." He's the "wheel" dog and pulls closest to the sled. He loves running, is very independent and is up for anything, anytime....let's just get to it!" Wants to go, go, go!!!

Sonny is my talking dog. When he barks, he yells..."hubba, hubba, hubba." He is soooo funny. He is one of Nyla's puppies. : )

Carlos is a very smart guy and lover. He loves me and wants to be my best friend and gives me hugs to prove it. He is almost as tall as me on two legs. I may train him to be a leader, he is definitely smart enough. : )
Baby's original name was Brownie, she was born of Nyla. I think they've called her baby, cuz she literally "cries" to get running! She is really a big baby. The most submissive of the whole pack. She will try to instigate things with newcomers just to prove to her pack buddies she's worthy of staying in the pack.

Jimmy is my other lead dog. Very smart, also loves attention but doesn't want you to know that! Very aggressive and wants to put every other male dog in his place! : )

Nyla loves people and attention and is very submissive to people, but I believe
she is the true pack leader (the brains and one of my lead dogs!)

We went to the Science Museum last night and saw the Omni film, Hurricane on the buyou. It is a wonderful film that explains and depicts not only the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, but the destruction of the wetlands which made Katrina's destruction so much greater. It was interesting and thought provoking.

Hopefully soon, we will see an Onmi film about Steger's current expedition. We will be able to get a peek at what Laurie's dogs experienced.
