Bozo, a lab-husky mix is probably around 13 years old (2008). I acquired him in 2001, a gift from a musher who found him to be a bit too slow or lacking stamina, but he worked really well for my style of mushing. Bozo is an extremely shy dog. He received no socialization as a puppy and it messed up his head for his whole life. When he’s in harness seems to be the only time he’s comfortable with people, there is a sense of comfort he feels as part of the team. He is a big sweet, gentle, intelligent dog; he just will never completely trust humans; although I’ve made a lot of progress with him.

He’s an excellent Gee/Haw leader, can march a dog team around in a circle, which is quite a feat. He’s been a great puppy trainer, extremely tolerant, not a mean bone in him. Last year he ran with the team in the early season but as we upped the miles I had to drop him to the shorter runs. I suspect he’ll run a bit in the fall before going into retirement. He’s loose always now, but he gets into trouble sometimes chewing things that he shouldn’t chew, like wires. He won’t accompany us on walks loose; he’d prefer to stay in his comfort zone, in the fenced yard and close to his house. Bozie Boy.

Not a very good photo, but I was trying to see how many dogs I could fit in the frame. I count thirteen, but one is just the paws.

Stormy, she's real gregarious. Yesterday I caught her spending a bit of time with Bozo in his house. It's okay, the shy boy really needs that kind of attention. She'll do this though, go from house to house - boys, girls she don't care. Storm likes everybody and everybody likes Storm.
