- Dude is a Siberian
husky. Dudes mother, "Blondie" was
- an excellent
leader and taught Dude almost everything he knows. She spent many days on the trail showing
Dude the difference between "GEE" (right) and "HAW"
(left). Dudes father's name is "Grizz". Grizz was an
excellent wheel dog for many years ....grizz is retired now at
17 years old he enjoys snoozing in his snoppy sleeping
bag most days and
watching the younger dogs play. Dudes mother and father ran the Iditarod back in the early 1980's.
- Dude has always
been my inspiration for the cartoons...he has kept me laughing
and smiling with his silly ideas. So next time you read one of
the Dude dog cartoons think to yourself..."did Dude do that?"
- Dude never ran
the Iditarod and never plans to, but he has enjoyed lots of trail
time, many exciting moments both dangerous and humorous, several
small races (which we proudly hold red lanterns awards) and wonderful
camping trips with his team mates and musher.
- We all hope
that Dude has many more years of playing in the snow!
