Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Harnessed Milo up again while Heather ran with roxy. I must say though this time wasnt as good as the last. All was good until Milo took off after another Sibe( Kalie) We where going to stop and say hi anyways but he couldnt get to her fast enough which caused me to have to try and slow down( skates have no brakes) so i literally burned one of my wheels flat. Which was hell trying to skate back on. So we made our usual round and where 100 yards from our place and then THERE IT WAS A DAMN CAT so i went for the ride of my life i tried every command i could think of nothing worked so over the curb through the woods across a ditch and up a bank we went. I was wanting to let go of him but i knew the cat wouldnt survive. Luckily my skates sunk in the mud and stopped us. AFTER this milo had a very very stern talking to Razz

I think its time for some different skates with brakes and built for speed. This skates where meant for rails and ramps from my highschool days.

HA! Balance, dexterity and lightning speed reflexes are all side effects of any kind of dog 'joring. I never did get the hang of stopping on blades. It's usually a rolling staggering step through grass until I fall. Those things need some real brakes, like discs and calipers and crap.

I dug out the snowboard and lines, but I haven't worked up the courage to get out there yet. Need some more traffic to lay down a track. I learned the hard way about riding on the street with loose powder. It's similar to having a pea sized pebble wedge under a skateboard wheel. Bam!

Yeah i tried the snowboard thing with my last sibe worked great till she saw a squirrel and BAM on the ground sliding into the woods. Maybe when i get the spare cash I might invest in a scooter and some lines.

Nice reminder. I'm gonna wax them up before we head out. Almost six inches of nice heavy spring like snow, and snow through the day tomorrow. Wish I had my old camera, don't really want to take the new one or the phone out snowboardjoring.

I just bought some mushers wax yesterday. Put it on for our walk today. I will never do any joring but on a bike. As good as a snowboarder as I am I don't trust them and the random animals we could cross
