Elbert came to us as ‘a grumbly old bastard’ constantlty growling & complaining about everyone & everything. Elbert loved life at Chocpaw & put in many happy years working expeditions. He has a home in South River not far from the kennel.
It’s been awhile since Will came home with me, so I wanted to give you an update. He is really relaxed around the house, he even likes the cat. He loves canoe rides better than motorboat rides, quieter I think. I can’t believe how smart he is, excellent off leash in the back country and […]

Willy has a new home in Parry Sound. He will be retired from daily work but still spend time hiking & biking in the summer. His new partner, Dennis, is, is also an avid skijorer. Still lots of energy left in Willy. He will be missed here, but very deserving of the change of pace. […]
