PostSubject: Training. Day One.   Wed Jan 27, 2010 6:53 pm



The wind was brisk giving the already cold place an even harsher wind chill. Gear wasn't one to nap the day away even if there was no training going on. The cold blue eyes were watching a small mammal just outside the kennel. It smelled like a rabbit but had wings like a bird. Gear consciously knew he couldn't go attack the animal but a strong vein beat some where in his body and told him that the animal needed to be in his stomach. His kennel space was tight, as were everyone else. Each individual kennel included food and water bowls, a few toys personal to the dogs inside and a dog house. The kennel was a closed building but the kennels on the sides had no back walls making winters very harsh.



The orange color of her fur glistened in the sun. Mellie stood square with the large gate that bordered her kennel. Her baby blue eyes reflected nothing but the fresh white snow powering the earth. Mellie longed to frolic in the snow with her team mates. Judging by the position of the sun in the sky she knew that the handlers could not release them for another hour. But in only ten minutes time all the other dogs would be awake. The kennel would be a racket with all the dogs barking at once, talking to each other and joking about any thing, just like normal.

What the 16 Kennel space looks like.

Aseles silently lay in her den, only having been awake for a few moments. She yawned and lifted her head from her paws, looking around and listening for any signs of the others being awake yet. She could hear only a few others padding around in their kennel, but not all that many were awake. She quietly rose to her feet and made her way towards the front of the kennel, glancing at the pure white snow before looking up at the sky. They weren't going to be let out for a while yet, so she sat down at the gate, watching a few flakes of snow gently fall from the clouds.

Julio lazed around in his kennal waiting for the day to begin, sleeping around for the moment he would wake up in a frenzy and start barking and going on pulling at his collar and such. Julio was ready to go now! No joking around he was absolutely ready to break under the pressure of wanting to get infront of the sled and start pulling the sled.

Gears ears were pinned back on his head as though he was hunting the small mammal. The small furred triangles atop his head perked up at the sounds of Julio's bark. He woofed quickly back. He understood the eagerness in Julio's voice. He too was ready to go. The sooner they got started training the sooner they could win the Iditarod. He turned tail and faced the inside of the kennel building. He backed back to Julio "Good morning!" Each and every member of Gear's team had earned his loyalty. There were few dogs he actually had problems with.



Mellie's kennel was placed in between Julio and Aseles. She bounded to the inside gate and woofed excitedly. Before they could train they would be let out to play in the gated field. Mellie wanted so very badly to play with the other dogs. Even though it had only been a few hours Mellie felt as though she hadn't seen them for days.

Ryi yawned as she heard the others. She streched and stood up. She was lead to the inside of the gate and saw walked silently to the middle and sat down. She smiled as she saw everyone else.She rolled her shoulders alittle. "Man, those tugg lines sure do rub in."She murmer softly to herself. She looked up at the others and made a faint smile. She smiled softly at Gear. She always ran beside him. It made her proud to be a lead dog.

Julio shuffled around in his kennal more now than ever he started howling as if he were more than over-joyed. "Hey there gear!" Wheel dog or not he was a proud member of the team and would continue to push around at his kennal door to try and get it open, even though he failed horribly at this it was his best effort :3

Gear barked over to Ryi. She was his co-lead. They made a great team because they both possessed a strong leadership quality and could get along well, at least with each other. "RYI! Morning. They sure do!" Later in the day, once released from the steel cages he would pull her aside and discuss strategies for racing.



Mellie padded quickly back and forth in her kennel. There was barking galore and the faint sound of Julio crashing into the steel pen.

Ryi smiled up at Gear and layed down on the ground. She looked around to the rest"Where is Julio? She said confused at why he was not there. She yawned alittle and continued to look around, then back to Gear.

Gear turned to face his partner. "Banging into the side of his kennel." Julio had a hard head and not only physically. He was one of the weirdest dogs to ever grace the team. Gear thought it as nothing more than the makeup of the team. Something the dogs would just deal with. It certainly didn't bug him.

Julio into a loopy stage where he would just stare at the snow for hours and hours, being all quiet but hyper as hell in thought. He barked out a few times but didn't really make too much of a fuss, suddenly he thought of something more exciting than sled pulling. Julio yipped out "GIRLS!!", then looking around he had hoped no one had heard that. His mind was racing with thoughts of a female he simply adored.

Ryi laughed as she heard Julio." He's definatly different. I will give him that." She said with a smile. She looked around at everyone, then back to the ground. Her paws dug into the snow under her as she layed still. She smiled and looked up at the rest. Her light blue eyes tracing everyone. She sighed as she layed her head on her paws. The Iditarod was going to be tough this year.

Gear's steady head bobbed once in agreement. Ryi was very observant about the other dogs. Gear counted on her to let him know of any impending problems when they ran. If someone was aching Gear would find out with out the injured dog telling anyone, thanks to Ryi. Ge leaned back on his haunches, yawning.

Daytime already?

A yawn stretched my muzzle wide, revealing, I knew, sharp rows of teeth. I stood, blinking whilst my cornflower eyes adjusted to the bright white snow. Dogs were racing around yapping excitedly, their tails nearly wagging off. I smiled slightly, setting my paw forward to check how deep the snow was. Finding shallow enough for me to walk comfortably on, I padded out, craning my neck to try and find my partner. "Loki?" I called quietly. My voice was cracked after sleep. "Loki," I called again. This time my voice was louder and smoother. I injected a hint of a laugh into it.

Loki grunted, kicking his feet in his sleep as he heard someone calling his name. After hearing it again, he cracked his eyes open slowly. He lifted his head up and finally noticed the other dogs barking and chatting excitedly. He was the last one awake again wasn't he? Sighing, Loki then saw Eski. He pulled his lips back in a grin and barked to her in greeting, "Eski!" before lurching to his feet unsteadily. Unwisely, he decided now was the time to give his body a good shake, sending him sprawling across the ground again.

Keesha stretches lazily in her cage. "Morning guys!" She calls out. Demon smiles and blinks the drowsiness out of his eyes. "Mornin'." He sighs he gets up, stretches, and looks around. Keesha blinks at Gear. "Morning." She smiles. Demon smiles at his sister, lowly snickering. He pads to the front of his cage and sat there. Suddenly, the outside door flew open, and snow rushed in. He barked loudly as the musher came walking in. Demon licked his lips. Keesha barks too, excited for todays run.

Ryi looked up from where she had been sitting and yawned alittle. She got up and stretched out her body. Her muzzle pointed perfectly straight as she stood up. Her paws dug into the ground deliatly as she looked around.

"Did I wake you?"

I found myself sounding genuinely worried about that. Surprising, I had never really liked engaging with other dogs. Our Follower entered, and I turned my attention on him. Not following to commands could often be painful.

Loki grinned at Eski before rolling onto his belly. His attention was drawn to the musher who walked in. He heard Demon and Keeshi barking and couldn't help but add an excited little bark to the mix. Loki shot up to his paws and whined quietly at the door to his pen, his tail wagging slowly by his back legs.

Gear barked a hello to all the dogs waking up. Nearly the whole team was up and barking. Including Keesha. She was a lovely dog, very cute of a younger dog. Sometimes young dogs looked too much like pups for Gear to even consider. He was the lead dog and born for this. Of course his genes were perfect to pass on and the musher would leave his decision in make up to him.



Mellie yawned, exposing her rows of white teeth. She smiled at the dogs who were waking up now. Barking in excitement at the musher who walked in Mellie whined a little bit. She was careful not to pee in her kennel. She had been a house pet for a short time and had learned to only pee outside.

Julio ruffled in his cage and whimpered a little as he would have fallen back asleep during the wait, he woke up to the sound of the mushers boots hitting the snow infront of his kennal. Not really sure what to do he would sit up in his kennal swaying his tail lightly, being the last dog on the team he was surely let out first? To his knowledge anyways, Julio waited silently.

Keesha smiled warmly. The musher walked over to her cage and unlocked it, saying "Hey girl." He went to unlock Demon's and patted his head. "Good boy." He unlocked all the other cages and yelled out: "Out of your cages dogs! We have a long day today!" Demon charged to the front door and wagged his tail, barking happily. The musher smiled. "Just wait Demon we have to feed y'all first." Demon's tail drooped. Keesha smiles at Demon. "Awweh pour puppy." She teases. The musher walked around, throwing a peice of raw meat in each bowl.

Loki wagged his tail excitedly as the musher unlocked his door and tossed food in the bowl. He let the musher move his hands before lunging in towards the bowl and tearing into his food. The food was gone in seconds and Loki nosed sadly around the bowl, searching for more. He looked hopefully up at the man, but he'd already passed his kennel and was finishing feeding the others.

<<<Uhm... Actually mushers would never feed their dogs just plain raw meat. Maybe as a treat. Usually they buy or create specially regimented diets for each dog and don't feed them first thing in the AM.>>>



Gear stepped out as the Musher released him. He felt the man's warm broad hand run from his head o his back. One of the perks of being the Lead dog was that he got extra attention from the musher. The gloved hand extended a small ball of kibble. They were held together with peanut butter. Gear knew that this was the musher's way for dispensing medication but it was so yummy any dog would have to forget that small anti-heartworm pill inside.



Mellie paced in her kennel. She was released before Gear and she bolted into a circle around the musher before running over to Julio. She nosed at him through the gate. He was one of her closer friends on the team and had a little bit of gossip to spread.

Julio spun in his cage and tried to nose at Mellie as he always did to hear the new gossip. Wagging his tail he listened intently to what she had to say.
