Kali’s resumé for the 2017 Iditarod

Kali has been in Iditarod training. After winning the Arizona Iditarod, she’s looking to race in the big one. The 2016 Iditarod is over and both winning and losing entries are looking to improve for 2017. Hire Kali, as you can see she’s eager. In Alaska, you won’t have to worry about her stopping by the rosemary bush where there’s a rabbit nest. You won’t have to worry about her looking under the bridge for lizards. She’ll more than pull her weight (which is 12 pounds or 5½ kg).

  1. OMD OMD just LOOK at her PULL… the Strength and Endurance… OMD GO Kali GO… MUSH MUSH With Syrup.

  2. Amazing! She’s got the mojo for sure. And, BTW, your pool is gorgeous! Do you get to take a dip, Kismet?

  3. I think she could definitely pull a sled………all by herself too! She’s like a little TRACTOR out there! GO KALI!

    Hugs, Sammy

  4. Hey Kali, great pull by the pool, but what about in the snow?

  5. Lookin’ good. Let’s hope you get a faster sled in the big race!

  6. Mush…Kali, mush!
    P.S. FYI…Standard Poodles actually competed in the Alaskan Iditarod in the late 80’s. 😉
    Happy weekend.

  7. Corkscot could enter into a three feet Iditarod and stand a chance of placing in the top 100.

  8. Hey Kali, ya think ya could pull a 19 pound westie around??

  10. We support you, Kali! You can mush with the best of them!

  11. oh wow!!! you could be the furst dog in the row… and maybe there is a free place in your sled team for me too? I would like to run behind you, I’m fast and can pull like a tractor butt I have some problems with finding the right direction :o)

  12. Take me! Take me! I am totally awesome at pulling too! Just ask! I’ve pulled my Mom down a number of times! We would make a great team!

  13. Away up in Alaska
    The state that stands alone
    There’s a dog race run from Anchorage into Nome
    And it’s a grueling race with a lightning pace
    Where chilly winds do wail.
    Beneath the northern lights, across snow and ice
    It’s called the Iditarod Trail.
    Well, give me a team and a good lead dog and a sled that’s built so fine,
    And let me race those miles to Nome, one thousand forty-nine

    You got those miles in you Kali?
    Sweet William The Scot

    • It’s a long way to Cincinnati,
      It’s a long way to go.
      It’s a long way to Cincinnati
      To the sweetest Bill I know!
      Goodbye, Arizona,
      Farewell, Chase Field!
      It’s a long long way to Cincinnati,
      But my heart’s right there.

  14. Awww, she’s a fierce hunter. So adorable.

    Have a woof woof day Kali. My best to your peeps. 🙂

  15. She’s got skills for sure but I’m concerned about losing her in the deep snow.

    Aroo to you,

  16. they’d be a fool not to select you.
