Show: ANK's Halloween Bash:

Here DBK's second sled team: Gazer, Celeste, Gemma, Tai, Mascara and Jet.

Lead dogs: Gazer and Celeste
Team dogs: Gemma and Tai both Siberian Huskies
Wheel dogs: Jet and Mascara Siberian Huskies

Story (Forgive my poor english)

Snowy weather. Perfect. Though Diego while preparing the dogs and the sled.
He loved this weather as much as the dogs loved it. They were all excited and couldn't wait to start the race but at last they were helping him to put the harnesses by acting submissive and quiet...Yay, well...All except one....
- Ouch! Geez! Gazer! Be quiet I am trying to get the hang of this!-
The dog stopped for a second, he was so bound and stuck in the harness that seemed impossible to put things affixed. He watched his owner with his deep hazel eyes...Pff it was clear that for him being stuck in that thing was not a problem.
- Always the same, uh? You hothead of a dog.- Said Diego even if now he knew that dog very well, and he was also very fond of, it was difficult to manage him. In the kennel people who could handle and train him were few due to his neverending energy, his lack of awareness of personal space, his massive tonnage and many others reasons...Even some dogs couldn't stand him, first of all Saimak. The two totally couldn't stand each other and well probably it was Gazer's attitude towards females that Saimak couldn't stand xD
Despite all of this Celeste, a tiny female, was able to bear with him better than any other and she was even able to balance his excesses. The perfect couple also in term of leading the sled and the other dogs since both influenced a lot the others. Diego really trusted her. How to say... Gazer was the arm and she was the mind.
Finally He could manage to straighten Gazer's harness and so he was done with the preparations. Just to be sure he checked again all the dogs, they were all in exceptional shape and ready to go.
Silence for a moment then hell between yelps and moans of excitement. Jet the black and white wheel dog even started to jump like a crazy only Celeste, like always, was standing still without making a sound, her ears pulled back...She was totally focused on him, her musher. He knew that a his signal she would have started to give her best and running at incredibly costant speed. Diego was always amazed by her behavior.


The sled started to move across the snowy path faster and faster until the point the dogs reached a good pace.
Let's keep this one Though Diego
The feeling of freedom was beyond description. Only him, his dogs and the snow.
It seemed unreal as that moment was too perfect.
That was the reason why he loved sledding so much.
Time too was acting strange and soon, or at least it seemed so, they started to see the finish line. There wasn't need of words, Gazer and Celeste knew by them-selves it was the decisive moment. The sled speeded up every sencond. Only few metres now. Faster! Faster!
Some snowflakes started to fall as the crossed the finish line.
He couldn't hear cheers and applauses, he didn't mind his sister's hug or the stuff's words. No.
He was focused, focused on her, only on her pulled back ears. Celeste turned to look at him with her shining glass blue eyes, she was tired but happy and satisfied. That was all the mattered. Gazer next to her was happy but he did not semeed tired at all, his wagging tail looked like a helicopter while Becca was giving him a delicious prize.
-And also this has gone- Murmured Diego while petting the dogs- Now I only want a delicious dinner like yours- He smiled at Gazer.
