Sirius of the Week for October 2 - 8, 2005

Tonya is the star this week and her proud papa writes,

"'Tonya of Seppala' is her name! She's ten years old in November, and Tonya has done it all. To start with, she's her Boss' constant sidekick and Number One 'Girlfriend'; add to that, she's the best lead dog out of sixty Seppala Siberian Sleddogs at Seppala Kennels in the Yukon Territory, Canada.

"Tonya has travelled thousands of miles through the Yukon wilderness, leading an eight-dog team on trails up to thirty miles long. She covers a thirty-mile trail in about two and a half hours usually. The photo below shows her with her understudy Lizzy.

"Tonya is also 'assistant webmaster at the Seppala Siberian Sleddog Project website. Below you can see Tonya 'computing.'

"She has had a couple of litters in her career, as well, just to round out her accomplishments. Tonya regards the Boss' 3/4 ton Dodge Ram 4wd pickup as her own personal limo, and sits in the driver's seat with her chin rested on the steering wheel, guarding 'her truck' whenever it's parked in downtown Whitehorse. Most of all, though, she's just one of the best friends an old guy ever had. Arrogant, proud, aloof, Alpha -- yes! But a true and loyal friend all the way. Noble Lady, Gorgeosa, Ton-Ton-Amera, I love ya!"
