Introducing Whiskey!

whisky original cover

Whiskey, the stunningly handsome dog on our cover, just celebrated his first birthday on Nov. 3. He and his brother, Jack, were named after the whiskey jack bird common to northern Manitoba. He has been working and training in the lead dog position, an unusual feat for such a young dog. “He just took it,” his owner says. Running eight to 10 miles per day, he is an easygoing dog that relates well with the whole team. He comes from good stock, his father was a leader, and so was his grandfather. In fact, his grandfather, Thunder, ran in the 2010 Olympics with Isabelle, the blind sled dog. Whiskey resides in Churchill with his owners Gerald and Jennifer Azure of Bluesky Expeditions. blueskymush.com
