2012 Iditarod Team – Part 3

Coltrane

COLTRANE


Coltrane (3 years old) is the only dog on the team who is an immediate offspring of 2006 Golden Harness winner Salem (x Spaniel), although Salem ’s line runs in many dogs on the team. Highly affectionate, “double-pawing for love,” Coltrane wins over anyone who approaches him. Demonstrating his talents as a determined, hard-driving leader, Coltrane led Jeff’s winning Sheep Mountain team this year. Coltrane’s power and drive can be felt the instant you attempt to hook him up to the team – hold on!

Deets

DEETS


Deets (Yuksi x Jenna, 2003) is the most seasoned race veteran on the 2012 team. Although racing since a youngster, Deets has “come into his own” as a super-star dog during his mid-life years. A superb leader, Deets reads difficult and potentially dangerous terrain well and responds to voice commands without hesitation. Deets is the only dog on the team who lives indoors, where he thoroughly enjoys his soft dog bed. He is unsurpassed in his ability to exude patience, confidence, and determination while running in the team and as such is the perfect role model for this relatively young team.

Norton

NORTON


The words passion and independence often associated with motorcycle enthusiasts so fittingly applies to the three dogs from the “Motorcycle” litter of Solomon x Shannon (July 2009). Norton is a tough, driven, no-nonsense pulling locomotive when running in harness yet transforms into a playful comical character when his engine is turned off.

Rebel

REBEL


The words passion and independence often associated with motorcycle enthusiasts so fittingly applies to the three dogs from the “Motorcycle” litter of Solomon x Shannon (July 2009). The females Rebel and Vespa run in lead and when they aren’t in that position they sure act like they want to be! Rebel dishes out kisses to anyone who comes close and if you stay long enough her kisses turn into nips o’ lovin’ on your chin.

Vespa - 2012 Team Photo

VESPA


The words passion and independence often associated with motorcycle enthusiasts so fittingly applies to the three dogs from the “Motorcycle” litter of Solomon x Shannon (July 2009). The females Vespa and Rebel run in lead and when they aren’t in that position they sure act like they want to be! Vespa is a sweet, mild-mannered girl yet a spirited lead dog.
