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.

Over the last year, Bonnie and Hooch have become old lady best friends. They do absolutely everything together. This wasn’t always so! But a year of being official retired inside dogs has really bonded them together.

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!

Do you love Bonnie? There are two cool ways to cheer her on down the trail!
