Holly is a cutie, our first real working dog with a great smile -- Holly has shown us what a trained sled dog can do. Just a little girl (37#s), she's on the small size for racing, but she has a wonderful gait and likes to go fast! Holly gets extra cute points since she's one of the sibes who can fold her ears. She's the first one at the door every morning saying "pick me" for today's team -- and if you leave without her you can hear her scream a quarter mile away.
Holly and her littermates are named after places in Montana along the Race to the Sky course -- things happen when teams get tangled.
