For as hardy and healthy as sled dogs are, the hardest part about having them is the fact they simply do not live as long as us... This page is dedicated to all of the Tukaway dogs who have past on to the long trail high in the mountains! We miss you...
The General. You could say this ol’ Fella had been around the block once or twice…. I met Skor for the first time in 2010 working as a sled dog guide living on a glacier in the mountains of Southeast Alaska. He was a no nonsense dog then and for the remainder of his days! Skor finished Iditarod and the Yukon Quest. He was a true gentleman. Always happy to be pet and even more happy at feeding time! Thanks to the Currier’s of Lara-Ke Kennel for letting this good boy join the team and help train our original Jeep litter! Although Skor was not retired long before he left us, he made up the time by demanding extremely aggressive snuggles. he quite possibly was the strongest dog in the history of dogs. I am pretty sure he gave me at least a few fat lips as he attempting to force his way into more and more comfortable positions. He definitely broke one of my teeth one time! This guy was truly a special dog. I think about him every day, he always made me laugh with his loving yet brute strength. Haha, I'll be honest, they don't make dogs like Skor anymore! Miss yah, pal....
Thor left us WAY to soon. This little man join the team from a good friend of ours in Maine. He was all heart. He never quite had the legs as everyone else but this dog loved to run! He put everything he had into his harness. Thor was a beautiful dog that was all smiles. I'm not kidding! Anytime I saw him he had a HUGE grin on his face. One of his favorite tricks was trying to head butt me when putting a harness on him. I am pretty sure he made it his game to try and knock me out! Thor will always be remembered for his forward and happy attitude. There will always be a seat on the couch for you...
