Bonnie is a veteran of the Iditarod and Yukon Quest. She comes from Red Dog Racing, and raced alongside Hooch in two Iditarods. She’s a great leader and most importantly… She’s Ophelia’s aunt! Bonnie’s brother, Clyde, is Ophelia’s father.
Even though Hooch and Bonnie have run many, many miles right next to each other (in fact there’s a great shot of the two of them in lead together in an Iditarod calendar I need to find), they don’t exactly get along. So far, they are tolerating each other and taking turns being on the couch.
Bonnie is retiring with us, but she’ll get to continue running as she helps train the next generation! Bonnie and Hooch will be my leaders to train yearlings and pups.
Getting Bonnie in the house shows me how much like Ophelia she is! She’s super cuddly and has the most luxurious red coat. Bonnie is a sweet girl and I’m super excited to have her aboard the crew!
