A fun day playing chase with the dog sled tours from Good Times Adventures!
Still playing chase with the same 8-dog team; but a little further down the trail now with every sled dog in a dead sprint.
|"See! No proper sled dog pays attention to a silly SLOW sign!" demonstrate sprinting Max|
and Zorro as we fly down the trail behind the sled team.
Here is a fun video putting together our 2 minutes of chase including the previous two photos. The game went as follows: (1) get behind the team and play fast & fun chase; (2) slow down when the sled team slows and keep casually behind for a short stretch; and (3) woo-hoo, the team opens up the throttle again as we play another game of fast chase - wheeee!

We did many loops around the trails at Good Times looking for teams to have fun with. We were cruising along one trail alone when I said, "This is fun, let's go find some more sled dogs to chase!" I was not expecting anyone to know what I was saying; but here is the reaction I got from Max & Zorro immediately after making the above comment:
|"Yeah! We agree! Let's go find some more teams to play with!" exclaim Max & Zorro.|
Look at those agreeing faces and try and tell me they did not understand what I said!
Alas, we succeeded! Another 8-dog team from Good Times cruising down the trail as Max & Zorro get ready to start another game of chase!
|"There's more, there's more - ready, set, GO!" say the intense pair getting ready to launch|
into another game of chase.
A beautiful day, a beautiful run - fun, fun, fun!
|"So much fun today!" say my extremely happy buddies.|
