THE FLOWER KENNEL

Bluma is very shy and it took me a long time to gain her trust. But then she gave it all, and became my soul mate and main go-to solid leader. She knows left and right, but sometimes has her own opinion. She is a major trail finder in the backcountry and drags the whole team over bare ice if I ask her to do so.

Bluma

Super shy, driven and stubborn

Position: Lead, Team
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 7 years

Diesel is goofy. He is obsessed with pruning his living space. If his food bowl is placed in the wrong spot, it has to be buried to protect the pristine look of his doghouse garden. He works very hard, plays very hard and sleeps even harder.

Diesel

Solid, driven and goofy

Position: Team, Wheel
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 4 years

Rachel is super delicate and smart; why pull when the big boys can handle it. But when the going is hard, its Rachel who leans her full weight into her harness. She leads the team from the front and teaches the boys some determination. She is the only one who dares to stand up to her sister Bluma and can't live without her.

Rachel

Shy, elegant and smart

Position: Lead, Team, Wheel
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 7 years

Sam is the big boy with a big heart. Always ready for a cuddle and he can't help himself, but giving a lick is his trade. Sam has a steady run and is in training to become a lead dog. He takes over when the trail becomes long and boring. To Sam, the world seems intimidating and should be observed with a tilted head to see it from all perspectives.

Sam

Cuddly, graceful and lovable

Position: Lead (in training), Team, Wheel
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 4 years

Luke has no patience, hence he always gets in trouble. In harness his mind is on moving; stopping or resting is not to his liking. No rope (or car seat) is safe for his sharp teeth when he can not run. By pushing always to the limit, he gets easily injured, ending up inside the cabin/tent many a night...hmmm...

Luke

Sweet, impatience and trouble child

Position: Lead, Team, Wheel
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Male
Age: 7 years

Lilja has energy, energy and then some more energy. Her big long tail will sway in the wind all day, and I suspect all night. Along the trail she always finds fascinating sights and will let us all know with a bark or howl. Food or a snowflake falling out of the sky...why do the other dogs not get more enthusiastic?

Lilja

Energetic, cheerleader and lively

Position: Team
Breed: Alaskan Husky
Sex: Female
Age: 4 years
