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.

PostSubject: Bodhi's Skijoring Adventure at Frog Lake   Fri Feb 03, 2012 11:19 pm

Today Bodhi went skijoring for the first time at Frog Lake on Mt. Hood.
I picked a flat road that's used by both sled dog teams and snowmobiles.

But that was part of the problem.
Bodhi didn't seem to know what to do.
There were such great smells! And places to mark!

The start was comical. He was all hot to go.
I had him attached to me by the waist belt..
I had to clip into my skis, so I wrapped his lead around a tree branch sticking out of the snow.
That worked fine keeping him still, until he decided to walk behind me.
Then I had to untangle the lead from branches and my poles.

Sometimes, he'd trot along fine.
He knows the command, "On," but this was a new place!
Sometimes, he'd veer off sideways to pee where some other dog had.

I was surprised he didn't take off like a rocket at first.
He did that a couple times a long the way unexpectedly.
But we managed to ski about 4-5 miles.
Only a couple of pix, cause it was just Bodhi and me.
This is going to be a learning process.

Aw, Bodhi!

Well, it was quite comical for me when we took the pups for the first time. Just me...hubby did pretty well considering he's never XC skied before. But he is a skier and I'm a snowboarder. So hubby and Ginger settled in pretty quick and easy.

As for me and Storm? Well, I basically was taking is slow because I've skied probably only 5 times in my life, and thought XC wouldn't be that hard. Well! While I was all over the place, or being the slow boat to china, Storm was a good boy, helping me along when I was actually gliding, and being very patient and not pulling when I fell.

Hubby and I are taking a XC lesson so we'll be better since Ginger and Storm seem to know what to do.
