It's Been a While . . .

Hello there! Yes, it's been a while since we've last posted. We've had many changes recently and promise to share with you more often.

So, here's where we are. We now have a team of 7 dogs, and dog 8 is our namesake Fox. Our team consists of Ruger, Denali, Calypso, Prudhoe, Oso, K2, and Katahdin.

Since you've heard from us last, we have been to Poland to represent the United States at the IFSS Dryland World Championships via USFSS. We traveled with Oso and Prudhoe. Nick took 19th place, and Joy brought home 46th.

You may know Calypso has dealt with glaucoma since we adopted her. When her first eye was removed, the vet let us know the same would likely eventually happen with her remaining eye. In January, Calypso lost her sight completely. But, that didn't get her down and in May, she completed a trail 5k at the Pineland Farms Trail Running Festival in Maine!

We have recently been doing more speaking engagements as well, including talks at Fleet Feet Sports in Springfield, MO, Boat Town Brewing in Phillipsburg MO, and we also shared with Mappy Hour at Mother's Brewery in Springfield, MO. We'd love to share more about dog powered sports with your group as well!

We have been focusing on canicross and setting our sights on the ICF Championships in Poland this October.

We hope to see you on the trails soon!
